PRISONERS FROM HERE.
How Carbondale Convicts Are Faring
in the Eastern, Penitentiary.
A Carbondalian who returned home
a few days ago from a visit to Phila
delphia, had exceptional courtesies and
privileges extended to him on a visit
to the Eastern penitentiary, on Cherry
Hill. By virtue of a letter from Mayor
Ashfirldge, of Philadelphia, received
through another Carbondalian, C. P.
O'Connor, whose office In select coun
cil adjoins the mayor's, the usually
hard and fast rules respecting visits
with prisoners were relaxed. By rea
son of this, the Carbondalian alluded
to was given the liberty of seeing nnd
chatting with all the convicts from
Carbondale and vicinity.
The most unfortunate is Kinney, the
Simpson man who murderously shot
down his wife on the Delaware and
Hudson tracks north of here, three
years ago last July. Kinney is In a
bad way, physically. He is worn out
from remorse over his deed, the keepers
say, and is broken In health from the
mental torture he is suffering. He has
no specific ailment, buf Is broken down
under the terrible strain. He Is thin
and pale from his confinement, and
there is not much hope that he will
serve much of his long sentence of
twenty years. "
James Nolan, from tho South Side,
who slew his father, while he was be
ing upbraided for drinking, is the op
posite In looks and manner to Kinney.
He has taken on considerable flesh and
nppeared to be In the best of spirits,
OS he inquired about the folks at home.
Wlnans Hull, Edwin Schoonover's
slnyer, was seen In his cell, assorting
rags to be used in weaving kitchen
carpet. Wlnans was In an apparently
contented frame of mind and expressed
himself as being fully resigned to his
lot. '"Sometimes I feel lonely," said
he, "but It's not often. It's much bet
ter here than I ever expected, and I've
got only fourteen yeara to serve."

attack can only be awaited with hope.
Mr. Farrell was severely Injured on
the lower limb a few months ago. He
was swinging an adze, chopping wood,
when the broad, sharp" blade glanced

caused nn ugly wound, which had just
about healed when the paralytic stroke

t trimmings that have como are beautiful with a quiet, rich, subtle beauty that will linger long after
the noise and dazzle of the Coronation months have died away.
Fall dress-goods turned out to be uncommonly plain in color and weave perhaps for that reason
trimmings are more in demand than usual. At any rate, garnitures, brnlds and passementeries are a
necessary part of Fall gowns and wraps, to the minds of the great Paris makers, and the rest of the
world bids fair to follow in tho same idea-path.
A The right colors aro black and white, though the peacock combination of blue and green is a favor-
ite, and little touches of Oriental color have crept in, like tongues of flame, to light up many dark
X -'orners. 1
Paris has sent us more than her usual share this Fall year by year she slips further ahead in
the art of making lovely garnitures. But besides the robes and appliques and passementeries from
: France, there are hosts of braids and braid trimmings from Switzerland; jets from Germany, and a
brilliant array of fancy buttons and buckles from every country where they are best made.
PENDANTS Little drops hanging from an ornament are one of the newest things. They are
very good in black. -

Velvet crops out everywhere, not in heavy masses, but in little delicate touches that are very
effective. This year, for the first time, it has been introduced into appliques. ,
Medallions and separable gimps that can be cut apart between any two figures are among the
T most practical as well as the most beautiful trimmings that have come.
Spangles promise to be even more popular than last year, which is saying a good deal for them.
A They cover many of the most beautiful robes or unmade gowns in glittering profusion.
CORDELIERS Bits of fancy braid to be put on gowns in the style of frogs are among the
newest ideas, and some are very elaborate and very beautiful. ,
BlanketS and QuiltS The Annual Sale Still Lively.
Perhaps it's the coal scarcity. Maybe people think there will be few opportunities to get warm
: blankets nnd quilts at these September prices which is right. It is certain, anyway, that bed cloth
