NEW FEBERAL PRISON OPEN IN OKLAHOMA Ex-Algonian .Tells of Comforts Provided for Criminals. By Bertha Carey Gilbert. El Reno, Okla., Feb. 4 — Under separate cover I'm sending views of a new reformatory here mentioned in one of my former letters.

Hundreds and hundreds of autos vere parked on the grounds, and jhere was a constant stream of cars on the road from 'El Reno_to .he grounds—two lines, one moving out as close together as cars could drive, the other returning.
