TIIE WEEKLY TELEGRAPH AND MESSENGER, FRIDAY, MAY 30,1884.
THE CEORCIA PENITENTIARY.
Capt. John W. Holm# os Principal Keopor.
I'.'l'. vn TtUyiui'lmuilMessenger: I have
noticed for come weeks past severe com-
moils upon Mr. Nelms' behavior towards
a newspaper editor who found occasion to
comment upon the principal keeper's con
duct as a public officer. He isthesame
person, I taka it, who figured in such an
unhappy role before the legislature of 1879,
and when I read this fresh distance of his
asMimacy and blaster, I decided to recall
to your readers some of the evidence
brought forth in the year mentioned.
For this work I disclaim all personal dit-
1 ke to Mr. Nelms, as a citizen, but we have
x cached a place in Georgia where we are to
be bossed, It appears, not only by certain
political headlights, but by all of their
small-sized nnstrappers in office. This
arrogance has become well-nigh intolera
It is true we find these bosses in unlim
ited control of all the valuable revenues of
the State. When 8enator Brown was a
Radical this control was secured, and he
knew how to manage the business, but it
•will be exceedingly painful to the good
people of Georgia to find out that the re
linquishment of their revenues and their
diversion into the pockets of their masters,
not only entails a perpetual loss in money
hut a perpetual insult to them and to their
Mr. Nelms is a sample of the crowd that
blow and bluster whenever anybody ques
tions the divine right of their owners.
Every “Tray, Blanche and Sweetheart” be
longing to the pack open up whenever any
comment is made upon their malfeasance
or failure in office.
If the State is powerless to rid herself
of such people, we have still the poor priv |
ilege left ns of reminding each other of the
tyranny we endure and of reviewing the
character of our tyrants.
* ‘ surprising, therefore, that Mr.

his patron is backing him. Nothing else
rescues the principal Seeper from official
decapitation. His insolence would be re
buked under any other circum
stances. So long as Senator Brown
needs an official agent to pick
out the best convicts for hit ser
vice, so long will Mr. Nelms feel able to
tarnish his T 'address” to all who are out
raged by his official conduct. He will blow,
brag and bully anybody so long as our ex
ecutives are more considerate of Senator
Brown's friendship and influence than
they are of wbat is justly due the tax-pay
ers of the State. It has been said that the
late Governor Stephens had agreed to
make a change before be was elected, but
alas! be failed to do so after be begun to
look at the complications about him. Gov
ernor McDaniel seems to ignore the whole
business, for some reason.
J. \V. Nelms was sworn on August 13,
1879. and was examined by Representative

nothing about ta’elve dollars a head,
and Brown told Simpson Nelms was not
to charge for those left in camp# and not
moved. Governor Brown also said he had
agreed to pay Nelms something for pris
oners brought to his camp, but he thought
it a hardship. and if Nelms asked his ad
vice, he would advise against it. Simpson
told Colquitt Nelms said he Intended to
charge twelve dollars a head on all con
victs. no matter wbat distance they were
moved. Governor Colquitt replied It was
a private contract between Alexander and
Nelms, and he had nothing to do with It.
Simpson then went with Judge Hopkins
■gain to the Governor to protest, and got
the same answer. Judge Hopkins insisted
it was the Governor’s official duty to in
terfere. but he refused. Simpson was com
pelled to pav Nelms’ demand, and took bis
receipt for $1,512.00. Nelms defied them,
declared they should pay it or he would

With folded hands lay his dearest.
So still that he thought her dead.

There was life in the peaceful breathing,

And said unto death, “Depart.”

MAKING A LEAD PENCIL.
Its Cost nml Its Profit.—A Pencil of Pre
“What does it cost to make a lead
pencil?” said the manufacturer. “First
let me tell you how we make a pencil.
See this fine black powder? That is
graphite. It costs 23 cents a pound.
T|gs white substance is German clay.
It comes across the ocean as ballast in
sailing vessels, and all it costs us is
freight. We mix this clay and this
powder together and grind them
in a mill, allowing moisture to
be added during the process, until the
two are thoroughly assimilated and are
reduced to a paste about the consist
ency of putty.
“This paste we press into these dies,
each one of which is the Bize of a pencil
lead, except in length. There are four
leads in one of tkese. After they are
f iressed we cut them into the proper
engtli and bake them in an oven kept
at very high heat. There we have the
lead made. Its hardness is regulated
by the greater or less amount of clay
we mix with the graphite—the more
clay we pat in the harder the lead.

some thick, to receive the lead, and
others thin, for the piece that is glued
over the lead. The blocks are sawed
for four pencils each. They are grooved
by a saw, the groove being the place
where tho lead is to lie.
"The leads are kopt in hot glno, and
are placed in the grooves as the blocks
are ready. When that is done the thin
block is glued fast to the thick ono.
tt'hen dry the blocks arc run through]
a machine that cuts the pencils apartl
Then they are run through a macltim
that shapes and burnishes them, and
they ore ready to bo tied in bunches,
boxed and put oat.
“The different grades in valne arc
made by finer manipulations of the
graphite. Here is a pencil that is about
the average quality used in every day
business. It coats a little more titan
one-quarter of a cent to get it ready for
market. We sell it to dealers at one
hundred per cent, profit, and the dealer
makes much more than that. Of this
grade an operator and the machinery
will easily make 2,500 a day.
“There Is a pencil in that case. It's
a cheap looking thing, isn’t it? Don't
look worth more than a cent, does it?
tt'ell, it would take a ten dollar bill to
bay that. Tho cedar that surrounds
jhe lead in that pencil was centuries
old, I guess, before any cedar that is
standing to-day began to grow. It was
taken from a marl led in Orange coun
ty, X. Y., at a depth of 00 feet, and
near it was found a mastodon ■ re
mains. That bone knob on the end of
the pencil was a piece of that masto
don's tooth. No, I don’t think $10|
would buy that pencil.”
Letter Carriers’ Secrets.
Philadelphia Record. |
“There is not a letter carrier In the I
city but who is the custodian of the
secrets of some one on his route," said
a well-known postal official yesterday.]
“tt’hat a sensation they would create
if what they knew conld be revealed at
one time t The divorce courts would
be overcrowded, and rivals for maid
ens' affections would be parading the
streets, armed to the teeth, looking for
the other fellow. But there is a bar
rier to these revelations. The postal
laws strictly provide that a carrier
must never tell of what lie sees,
peat what he hears nor make
public in auy manner the address
upon a letter. When notified to deliver
letters only to the person to whom it is
addressed it is enjoined upon him to
remember this rule, especially as re
gards members of the same fjtuily.
tt'ell do I remember when I was a car
rier a certain maiden on Broad street
was receiving letters from a father and
son. Whether one knew that the other
was writing to the girl, I do not know,
but this I saw several times: When]
site received a note from the old gentle
man she was very deliberate In her
movements, hut w'hen I handed her
one from the son she was out of the
house inn jiffy.
■ "One ol the most annoying things to
the carriers is the impudence of ‘mash
ers.’ I have had these fellows inter
cept mo and offer $5 or $10 if I would
tell who such a lady was, and whetlier
she were married or not. I remember
one lady in particular, who came here
from a neigh Wing citvand stopped
at tho residence of a million
aire. She was a magnificent woman.
A man wonld hardly pass her without
turning around to take a second look.
The mashers nearly went crazy over
her, and one met me at nearly every
street corner on my route with some
question regarding her. I came near
getting into half a dozen tights over
lu-r./ud was glad when she went home.!
I But the devices of‘married men and
women who are holding clandestine
c*nvs[>ondence are ingenious. All such
mri'si or otaer tarost nn<l inn* troubles thvr

ioMow boring tool, fitted to a comm™

the result. Each disk then goes through
three or four or sometimes a half-dozea
more operations at the hands of the
men standing in a lino at one work
bench, each having n lathe and a three-
cornered file, sharpened to suit his
work. The bony part is cut from the
disk and the button shape given it while
revolved by tho lathe against the sharp
steel held in the workman’s liana,
,uge being used. Some of
the buttons are grooved with a few
lines on the face, and a few holes are
punched in each, l’art oi the buttons
are subjected to a mysterious coloring
oi>cration in a revolving box, but the
best grades are finished in tho natural
colors. The potlslilng is mainly done
Tho whole process is very qnick, and
tho method has tho great advantage of
being immediately adapted to any
style of button desired, no change
in machinery being required,
but merely a fresh adjustment of flesh
and blood. All size* of ordinary but
tons nro turned out, as well as some
“collar buttons,” though no fancy arti
cles are made. The liglit-coiored mate
rial la the most valuable. Fifty cents
a pound is paid for tho rough shells,
and the buttons are worth from ono to
seven or eight cent* each. Tho store
room contains ninny hnshels of these
valuable little things, ready for the
finishing touches, to fill orders.
