"1 wanted to refuse, but my husband'said: "The Lord hasn't given us any children, so we ought to do tome service." Needed a Housekeeper. The olber members named Mrs. KIIIK--Sim Is •'.Mother KltiK to the convicts—tin 1 board's chairman. From then on, her life of ease was. over.

Fifteen ye.ars ago eight negroes were thrown In a dark cell at Retrieve Kami, and In that little Black Hole of Calcutta they smothered to death. This Is a matter of record rccalleil by Mrs. King. "Hut you can't find any dark cells In Texns prisons now," she declares. And next came the passing ot the chains—great log chains that used .to hang from, the beama In every prison house; those chains with which men were strung up by the •wrists until they fainted. Now, "Mother" King has tackled the whipping problem. She in- clared herself against the use of th s lash. "Hut as long as such a provision remains In the statutes, the board cannot prevent Its use," she says. "We can only recommend the law he changed."

And "Mother" King hopes to have the honor system extended to every ono of the 24 prison farms. Other reforms she suggests include: A hospital on each ot the farms, A tuberculosis sanitarium for the prloon system.

When you pay out, plunge In again! Stay In debt for all you can carry. That la the only way to succeed In business. Let other men's money work for you." A gray-hatred prosperoui real estate dealer gave this advice nearly 30 years ago to a young client, Francis H. Slsson, back In his home town of Galesburg, 111. Stuson followed It to his preeent position an -co president of the Guaranty Trust Co., ot New Vork nnd one of the best known men in tho banking field. And when this Interviewer visited him expecting the conventional, cautious counsel about thrift and "pay as you go," Slsson quoted his old friend's words and Illustrated with bis own story. "1 became a newspaper owner when 1 was 27 and without money," be says. "1 had a lot ot fun out ot It and made some money, by the magic assistance of debt. After 1 got out of college I had some exper'ence on Chicago papers and then ^ «.nt back to Galesburg. Somehow a bank trusted mo and by tts aid I bought a third Interest In the paper. Then it was necessary to buy presses and other new equipment. Then opportunity came to take over a building cheap, and we did It. "Next a turn of circumstances forced me to got entire control ot the paper If I was to survive. A bank promised to honor my checks tor that purpose- I got oa mr bicycle and In one day I bought up enough shares to assure It. "All this before I had paid a cent toward lifting the debtl But I paid out wllh a profit and learned a lesson of tho real value ot credit," S Is son's philosophy on debt can be summed up In some such aphoristic .ihrases as these: A young man's greatest assets niay be his liabilities. Deb li riot merely a burden; It la a apur. D:bt enlarges • young man's Working capital ts equa' his ability. Thrift and debt may bs ths bases of fortune.
