Protect the Child .The murder of littb Lillian Gallaher in Detroit has taught thai city u lesson-that ahould'sland out in llaming letters before officials of every other city in the country. It is the lei-son that children sent forth from door to door to solicit funds or to sell chances or merchandise ever arc in,danger of falling into the hands of degenerates. It was, on such an errand that Lillian Gallaher went to' her death. A few' minutes , after leaving home to sell imnehbpard tickets for a school benefit, she was seized by the lie ml who took her life, stuffed her body into n trunk, and then iled. Detroit :fully realises the menace at lust, and,; 1'olice Commissioner 11. A. Pickcrl has called for an ordinance to put air'cnd lo such activities of children. Appalling us the cost is, the death of Lillian G.'illalier will not have been in vain if it can be the means of saving the lives of other children exposed to like peril.
