A Good Old Remedy There if, a good deal of meat in thai little slory from bapoer, Mich-, about the five youngsters who were arrested for a series of potty thefts. These lads, as you probably remember, were ordered into court to answer for their ('rimes. But just before they were to appear their parents asked the judge if they might "talk to the Iwys" first. The judge agreed; and the par- cuts thereupon repaired to their respective woodsheds and gave each young delinquent a good, old-fashioned licking. Then the judge put all of the boys on probation. Now you may deplore the old "spare . the rod and spoil the child" maxim as much as you like; in this case, it seems to us, everything was handled perfectly. Under ordinary circumstances these chaps would probably have gone to the reform school—and reform schools, unfortunately, arc notorious for their failure to accomplish any reformation- As it is, they got just what they needed, and the. state of Michigan docs not need to worry about thorn- All of which, of course, simply indicates once more that an energetic and intelligent parent can do a'lot more for a delinquent boy than a court can. Justice and the Law In Texas a "farmer has been condemned to death for murdering a neighbor during a quarrel over some livestock; and although the state..court of criminal -appals has held tha't'-lic was not tried according to law, the courts are without power to save him, and only executive clemency can prevent him from being electrocuted- The case provides an interesting commentary on the ways of the law- The appellate court has agreed that conditions in the place where the trial was held were so disturbed that a fair trial was impossible- It has also agreed that part of the trial judge's charge to the jury may have been in error. But be- \ cause the prisoner's lawyer failed at the time to ask for a change of venue or to object to the judge's charge, the courts can do nothing to rectify matters. All of this, it seems to us, makes OUT OUR WAY very poor sense, even though it makes good law. This ruling says, in'effect: yes, this man may have been sentenced to death improperly, when he did not deserve it, but it is more important to preserve the rules of the game than it is to .sec that an individual gets justice. It is precisely that sort of ruling that makes the law so incomprehensible to most laymen. The Windmill Cuba M. Higtlon.

Andrew Johnson, 17th president of the United States, was born in a crude shack at Raleish, N. C. When four years of age Ills father died. So poor was :ic that at 10 he was obliged to seek work. At 14 he was apprenticed to a. tailor nnd he learned the alphabet from a fellow-workman. Johnson never went to school a single day in his lifs. When 18, lie moved to Greenville, Term., where he worked as a tailor. A year later he married Eliza McCardell, who taught him how to read and write.
