CoUIiiH, Mother of Pardoned Con Tirt and His Sister. Tbank (be Execntlre. (Kansas City Journal.) Topeka, Kas., Dec. 24.—John Collins lost no time In thanking Ciovemor Hoch for bis pardon. He reached Topeka at 6 o'clock and went direct to the, new Collins home. After fondly embracing bis step-mother and sister and talking a few minutes withlbem he sat down with the family to "tea. Whan the meal was finished he said to bis sister: "Well. Grace, what Is the program for this evening? Stay at home and have a good visit?" That's part of It," replied Grace, "but there Is something else on the bill." What Is It?" he asked. 'Why we will just step up the street to the executive mansion and thank Ciovernor Hoch for his kind action, replied Grace. / •Yes, we will spare .von long enougli for that, but no longer." remarked .Mrs. Collins. "That's very satisfactory ti> me," replied John. "I want to let the gov- arnor know as soon as jiossible how thankful I am." Tells He's TliaukfnL So Grace threw on her wraps and conducted a personal excursion to the governor's home. John was the only 3.\cursionlst. They only spent a few •nomenis at the executive mansion lohn shook the governor's hand and told how grateful he felt and how thankful he was. And I hope that I shall so conduct myself that you' shall never regret your action in my case," said John. "You have a great futiwe before .vou," said the governor, "and I feci sure that you will nmke the best of your opportunities. Stay closely by .voiir mother and sister and you will be all right. You have no Idea how Jlligently they have worked for your freedom. I am glad to have given vou your llbert.v. l believe you were unjustly [lunlshed. .Vow I want to see vou become a useful man." lU-coguized >o One. John Collins came In last night on the C o'clock I'nlon Pacific train ac compunied by his half brother. Grant .Meade, ol" St. Joseph. They siieni several h<iurs in Kansas City street cars riding and buying Christmas pros ents for the home folks. John was Iressed in a new gray checked HIIU. "While not car riding Grant speni most of his time kwklng In shop windows, and I B|ient mine looking at the (jeople on the street.s," said John, did not see a single (ace in the whole throng that I recognized, and I am quite sure that no one recognized me. Wien we went to the dei>ot to talie a train for home I met some Topeksi people whom I know and who knew me. I also escaped notice on the train. When we reached Lawrence I pulled down the window blind and removed my glasses to escape the gaze of curious people." A Happy Tea Party. Several people recognized Collins OS he alighted from the train here. A few old friends shook his hand arid told him they were glad to see him back home. The greeting he received when he reached the Collins home were very affectionate. His mother and sister both tl\rew^ their arms around him and the three wept with jfV. As soon as they could swallow the lumps in their throats they told each other haw happy they were. Finally Grace excused herself and prepared tea. "It "was, perhaps, the happiest tea l»rty ever given In Tojieka," said Grace afterwards. John said he had nothing to say about bis future plans. "In fact. I have none," be said. "I want time to think over things. And as for personal stuff the reporters pumped me dry at the prison last night. I am mlgbty glad to be home with my loved onet. I appreciate ail that has been done for nie by kind friends and I am especially grateful to uovernur Hoch." \Vhen be left tbe priHon yesterday youuK Coilini drew 114.70 at back Mlary.

Fair treatment and Square deals. but I kept drawing at odd times and only came away with 114.70. Most of my 'salary' for the past ten years has been spent for newspapers and magazines." A Perfect Record. The cell which Collins has occupied for nearly ten years is tbe second one in the north cellhouse. It Is exactly the same as all tb^ rest of the cells. Collins, being a clerk ate at a later hour than the other prisoners, but ate the same food. He was always tbe last man locked In his cell at n^ht He kept a complete record of the cell- house. This means keeping track of all transfers, new jirlsoncrs admitted, prisoners going out. also a record of tbe punishments or penalties imposed for violations of rules and cases of sickness. He had a perfect record as Iirlsoner. Warden Haskell and all the prison officials have always had the kindliest feeling toward Collins and were pleased to see bim regain bis freedom. 'John's release gives^a lot of the king termers new hope," said a prison ifflcial. "Yet It discourages them somewhat too, because they figure that only a few can l>e pardoned each year and consequently each one pardoned lessens their chances for that .ear." THIRTY MILLIONS SOLD.

Washington, Dec. 24.—Thirty million Red Cross "Merry Christmas stamps have been sold to date, netting tbe American National Red Cress In the neighborsood of 1300.000 which will be e:(pended In the war upon tuberculosis. 'The sale would have been much Greater." said National Secretary Magee, "If we could have supplied the demand, but It has been impossible, although we have had three of the biggest printing establishments ' In the country busy day and night. Next year we will sell 1100.000,000." MARK TWAIN'S DAUGHTER.
