The convicts wars put at work In

they worked In chains, and the chains
were not counted as diminishing their

Some of the convicts became the
most industrious farmers and the most
thrifty and law-abiding merchants in
the country. Their children gave the
lie to the law of heredity by becom-
ing veritable gentlemen. Then It was
that the people of the former col-
onies performed a surprising act of
grace and confidence by decreeing the
destruction of all the records of con-
vict banishment and all the sen-
tences and orders applying to the
membera of the convict community.
The descendanta of the convicts are
now merged and lost In the Australa-
sian population. They are prominent
In the affaire of the colonies, and bold
offices of distinction. If their origin
is known, no one taunts them with It.
The offspring of the worst criminals
of Oreat Britain treated thus with full
confidence, have not tainted the blood
of Australasls, but have really
proved an element of strength.

The windmill, which stood aa steady

was some years ago fitted with an al-

of the times has been toward the ex-

some time It had been without a mil-

aort on Sundays of youthful gamblers.
The authorities of Pembroke college,'
Cambridge, to whom It belonged, had
received so many complaints that they
decided to have It destroyed. Ten
pounds of dynamite were distributed
round the base of the mill, the sails
of which had been removed. The
machinery, though rusty, was still

there was a terrific explosion, accom-
