Great Work of Convicts oa Goatl
The use of couvict lubor lu the cttu

economics which bus beeu tried iu the
southern states with a greater or loss
meed of success, says the Motor News.
Florida ia the latest state to fall iu

roud building Is the task which has
been choseu for . the wrongdoers. This
work hits now beeu going on for some

t!:e Klurldiuus express great sutisfic
tian. The work, they say. Is uot only
beneficial in giving the prisoners an
opportunity to do something, but the
exercise and outdoor life tend to tno
improvement of their health. i
Under, the system adopted In t!ie
Peninsular State the prison laborers
outer scarcely at all lu competition
with their free brothers. The roads
would not be built If the cost was
high, and as the state obtains the labor
for the bare cost of keeping the labor
ers the expense of laying out uud
building a magnificent system of high
ways is comparatively slight.
Along the east coast of Florida there
are Inexhaustible quarries of cochlna
rock, while in the district lying south
of Daytoun to New Smyrna grcrit
quantities of oyster shells are to be
fouud. Both furnish excellent ma
terials for road building. Thus Florida
has c,lose ot band all abundant and
cheap supply of road material.
The cochlna rock is soft and easily
rsuarripd. It requires bnt simple ma
chinery to" crush It, some of It being
merely granulated beneath rollers aft

has been used in the construction of
the excellent road which has recently

Roads on which this material has
been used require but little repairing,
the experience having been that they
improve with age, the stone being
ground down until It is like Uie finest
' Ou the southern" automobile circuit
the motorists recently encountered
many crews and gangs of convicts at
work along the Palm Beach-Miami
road. They also fnssed a convict
camp where the prisoners were en
gaged lu mining the cochlna rock at
The convicts are worked In gangs of
half a dozen or so. They are under
gunrd of a keeper, who carries a luad
ed rifle, while dogs ore kept at hand
to track any prisoner who might feel
Impelled to take French leave. This,
however, rarely happens. Florida Is
uot a land lu which one would be
tempted to run away.

Is Disease a Crime ?
Not very long ago. a popular magazlno
fublished an editorial article In which
he writer asserted. In substance, that nil
disease should he regarded as criminal.
Certain It is, that much of the slcknc-s
and suffering of mankind is due to tlm
violation ol certain of Nature's laws.
But to 8T that all sickness should be
regarded as criminal, must acueal to
very reasonable individual as radically
It would hj- harsh, unsympathetic,
cruel, yes c.imlnal, to condemn tho poor,
weak, over-worked housewife who sinks
under the hoavv load of household cares
and burdens, and suffers from weak
nesses, various displacements of pelvic
organs and other derangements peculiar
to her sex.
Frequent bearinsr of children, with Its ex
acting- demands upon the system, coupled
with the care, worry and labor of roaring a
larare family, is often the cause of weak
nesses, derangements and debility which are
aggravated by tho many household cares,
and the hard, and never-ending work which
the mother is railed upon to perform. Dr.
Fierce, the maker of that worln-fanird rem
edy for woman's peculiar weaknesses and
Ills Dr. lteree's Favorite Prescription says
that one of the greatest ntatarlMa tnthAcnra
of this class of maladies Is the fact that the

Corrugated rubber, such as la used

Hooks on which cups are hung should
not be screwed on the edge of the
second shelf, but well uudernoath It.
ffhey should be tested from time to

The second shelf should be about
three inches narrower than the one be

unless used for large dishes, may be
flush with the second. The top shelf
should have a broad cleat across and

keeping the various otitis and endtt,
such as are usually stored thereon,
from falling over upon tho dishes.
