A Trifle. Protracted The delays of the law, are pvoverljinl; but occassionally a case illtisU'alo.s the snail-like progress of our judicial machinery so excellently that it is worth citing in detail. In October of 11)2!) a New York jury indicted the directors of a certain bank that had failed. That, as such things go, is relatively a long time ago. But it was just the other; day that the New York court of appeals ruled that the indictment was valid, and that (he indicted men may be brought to trial on it. Here, then, we have a delay of approximately 1C months befoiv even so much as the validity of the indictment had been established. At that rate it final verdict as to the guilt or innocence of the accused men ought to be ready, say, by 103G. If that weri im isolated instance, of course, it would not be important. But it is not isolated, nor is it peculiar to New York. It is typical of the sort of delay that is always cropping out in American criminal procedure; and it is one of the chief reasons for the prevalence of crime in the nation today. 1 Up to the Individual There have been a good many explanations oltcred for the business depression ol the past year. Not often however, has anyone, suggested that ll:c irou'jl; had Its origin In moral shortcomings Miner than economic defects. But Solomon Lcvltan. stale treasurer of Wisconsin, touched on this theme In a recent, speech In Milwaukee, and nls remarks are worth examining a llltlir. "The stability of a country," snys Mr. Lcvl- tan, "is directly traceable to the ethics of its people. We hear a vrsat deal these days about changing standards of life, but thfrc arc some (hinge that, i-annot change, and one of these is honesty. The principle of honesty is as uu- ^ changeable as the principle of mathematics, and it miiGt b? the basis of all our dealings, national and linornattonat, If we arc to expect a solution of tome ol (tie problems now confronting nations. "What is it that has brought on present conditions? lias it not been false values, gambling, Ignorance, fear and lost of cunndenco? The only way to restore normal conditions IB by restoring conlclciice with true values, honest pay for hones: service rendered—in short, the application of Hie Golden Rule. "Yon may lliluk 1 am old-fashioned to talk (o you along three lines, but, there are certain .fundamentals of business and ol living that cannot be ignored. I believe Russia's present system of government is doomed to failure because It has set aside nnd is opposed to the basis of the laws of every civilized country. I refer to the ten commandments as wclj as to the Golden Rule. These undent rules of conduct constitute the law of Individual rights— set them nsldc and you ns Individuals will Imvc ' no rights nnd no protection." All of tills is somewhat out ol the ordinary, in a discussion of economic and political ills, Vet Ihere Is a great deal ol sound sense In it. What a nation is. after all, depends in the h\st analysis on what Its members are Individually. During the boom times preceding the stock market, crash of 1329 we had, as individuals, fallen into some unhealthy ways of thinking. We had the desire to gel something for nothing, and we forgot that the old standards could not safely be Ignored. Is II, after nil, stretch- Ing things to trace the ultimate cause of many of our recent misfortunes to the source that Mr. Levitan Indicates? . —Hope Star. SIDE GLANCES By George Clark even In emitting sufficient heat to be of value. Somehow hope springs eternal In the breast ot the bald and thousands of failures Jail to destroy it. Men who arc cool-headed, both physically in general and menially in matters of buslnes, become as [rusting as a virgin lamb In the [ presence of promises of new tecli- nlcs lor the restoration of their pristine beauty. Thus far the only actual methods known for improving the growth of the hair Involve improvement ol circulation in tlie scalp by suitable massage; proper cleanliness, brought about by washing once each v:eek; the use of oil when the hair is tos dry, and an ancestry which has had a profuse and luxuriant hlrsutagc. Apparently the possession of p. fine head of hair by one's father, mother, and al; of the grandparents on both sides of the family lor suv- eral generations 'back Is the bsE possible Insurance that the person In pursuit of hair for hlmsslf and his progeny will have what in wants.

His story, indeed, follows the Ponvd pattern quite closely. When he finally failed, he was quoted as saying that he could surely have succeeded if only his "enemies" had allowed him a little more time; and several hundred of liis investors promptly held a mass muet- ing and expressed their fnith in his ability to make everything right again. Strange, that people cannot seem to learn! The most unfortunate part of such things is that it is always the people who can least afford to lose their money .who provide the bulk of the investments.
