EXPERIENCES OF AN EX-CONVICT Temptation Awaited Him at Prison With Cain's Brand in Prisons Can Only Come From Inside by Making New influence. The morning dawned for which 1 fcad waited through the years that -had passed. Again I was to be a .free man, to go where I wanted, to mingle with my fellow-men, and to .meet life honestly. The prison doors had opened more than once to set me free; more than once I had cast aside my prison raiment. But I had -made up my mind that this was to "be the 'last time that prison doors should hide me from God's bright suasoine. I had made up my mind to bury the past and to start right, on a bright, clear day in Febru- ary. 1908. I bade good-bye to my old life and its surroundings. ,1 shook hands with the warden. The chap- lain spoke a few words of cheer and hope. The outer door of the great prison opened, and I was a free man once more, to go where I would. I felt as though I were walking on air as I passed down the steps from the oid grey prison: My chest ex- panded, and I enhaled the clear, fresh air of heaven. Oh. it was good to be rfree. I started off up tne street which "a new feeling. I was my own master. But I had not gone a great way when, !lo and behold, I met three or four [of my old pals. Now, I did not want to meet tnem, but they had found out when my time expired, and had come on from other i cities to give me a kind of send-off. I Prison reformation must start in- side the prison. It cannot very well start outside. Men in prison are cor- responding with their old life all the time. They like to get letters from their old pals, to find out what is go- ing on. And in that way it is known when they come out. So their old pals are there to meet them. I called one of my friends aside and we talked a little while, and I left him knowing plainly that it was all oti. Just think of it. Just think of it. I had not been out one hour when these people of whom I speak wanted rue to go right on to Birming- ham and pull off a big jewel robbery. I lett them then and there. I told them plainly I wanted no more to do with them, and once more started on my way. But. oh. I felt so lonesome. Which "way would I turn? Thirteen years of my life had been spent in prisons. I was an ex-convict with the stamp of prison on me marked like Cain of old. Where would I find one man who w'ould be honestly interest- ed in me? My old life was all around me. How would I break through? There was one great need, and if it could be done I think it would mean The iVoice the reformation of many is, to have some good, clean man, some man that is not afraid to touch dirp. to meet men as they come out of the prison at the -door, to take them by the hand and to let them know that there are people interested in them, to have some good place to take them where they can be kept under Christian influences until some way is provided for them. It is utterly impossible for a man with a prison record to get work un- less he has a trade, and they do not allow men to learn trades in most prisons. A little while after I came out I had several experiences of this kind. Almost every man that I went to wanted a reference, and I had none to show. I7 went and saw the Y.M.C.A.. but they had nothing for me, and almost every man that I saw there had a reference of some kind, and they were mostly younger men than I. I was too old a man to get a job of any j government, sort, nud "J Another From Sundial Editor Weekly Herald Dear I intimated in my last letter, I again beg .of you space for a few further remarks with refer-! aad refreshing DOCTOR SAID HEART AND NERVES WERE RESPON- SIBLE.
