Hia duties are to examine carefully the face of every convict as he enters, and to scrutinize every visitor in order to prevent, any discharged convict from seeing his "pals. Occasionally he has to make long journeys in pursuit of runaway prisoners or to identify criminals convicted in other States. He never makes a mistake; if once he looks a man in the eye he will know him under any disguise, as he tells his man by the look of his eyes. Once an escaped convict had his nose pared down one-third, but Jarkson detected him at once, notwithstanding this remarkable change of feature. Mr. Jackson is about 5 feet 8 inches in height, about 35 years old, of a light and sinewy build, •with black hair and piercing black eyes, and is altogether remarkably handsome. He knows about 10,000 criminals, and it is simply wonderful that he can distinguish the features of every ...

A bad piece of silver has a hollow ring or a light weight or an imperfect rim. If these characteristics were fully learned counterfeiters would soon be discouraged in trying to pass imperfect money. Ostrich farming is prospering in California. The feathers are equal to the best grown in Africa. The ostrich weighs from 800 to 500 pounds.

He was dtimfounded when he was told that it cost live good American dollars a pound. It was exactly the same variety, the Shiraz brand, which in Persia e lis for 20 cents a pound. Thus exactly twenty-five times as much is demanded here for it. The explanation, however, was quite simple, i irst, the long, perilous and expensive caravan transport through Persia to 'lrebizonde, on the Black Sea. That enhaii ces the price so that in Constantinople already the same tobacco cost 8 Turkish francs a pound (or eight times as much as in Pers...
