The Law's Delays The present term of criminal court, it seems ulready apparent, will only give new emphasis-' to tlie need that has been evident for a long time for a reorganization cf our judicial machinery. As this is written the fall Urm is nearly, half gone, and scarcely a dent lias been niflde in Ihe imposing list of cases awaiting trial. It is doubtful if all the jail cases will be disposed of. It is highly improbable that the cas=s of any offenders who have Ijccn able to make bond will be readied. The situation is by no means extraordinary. Never in r;cent years 1ms any term of criminal court been able to clean up its docket. Cases pile up from term to term, the prospect of ever bringing many of them to trial grows fninUr and fainter. Defendants arc in almost as much danger of dying of old of being tried and sent to prison. To a layman it seems as if there ought to be some way of speeding up court procedure, of getting pstty cases out of the way without the insulTcr- able expenditure of time that is often involyed. \Vc presume, howev-r, that every defendant is entitled to as much trial as his lawyer is willing to give him, and if the trials can't be made to . fit the court terms it is necessary to expand the court terms to fit the business demanding attention. The situation in the civil branch of the circuit court is little if any better than in the criminal. There too, thera are interminable delays, and justice is often thwarted by the march of time. The obvious rcmwly is in a readjustment of the circuits. Mississippi county alone now has almost as large a population, and probably fully as much court business, as the entire circuit of ' seven counties had when it was established. Some of the lawyers who practice in the local courts say that it would keep one 1 judge well employed to give adequate attention to the" civil and criminal work of this county alone. • That may or may not be true, but the need for more or longer court terms in this county-is top obvious for argument. If the county bar association can outline a solution for the problem the facts a vc convincing _BLYTHEVILIjB L jARK.)

A Villain Revealed Hather a long distance view of the Rev, lien Cox of Memphis has given lit the opinion that lie was a more than ordinarily, valuable dtizoniof our neighboring metropolis. Superficially, at least, hn appeared to have made his church an institution of genuiiir help and service to people very much in need of such help. Hut it seems from newspaper accounts that the gentleman has be:n leading a double life. He was actually caught red-handed, or so at IciifL it is charged, "chatting with a woman In a parked automobile." We are sure all right mindt'd people will agree that for such an offense; he ought to be drawn and quartered.' A Warning for Hunters The Ixaak Walton League points out that the nation's slock of wild, ducks is apt to l)c badly depleted this fall unless sportsmen voluntarily put themsefves under sharp restrictions. Due to Ihe drougtli and the constant encroachment on breeding areas, only about half the usual number of ducks will be flying south to their accustomed wintering grounds. Furthermore, the constriction of water areas due to drougth will cause them to concentrate in unusually large numbers and may lead sportsmen to belicvft thai; they are more plentiful this year than ever— with the result that there will be excessive killing. The U. S. Biological Survey, however, has definitely established that the number of ducks is greatly reduced, and the. league fears that the enthusiasm of the hunters may have disastrous effects. The intelligent sportsman will bear the league's warning in mind. By exorcising moderation this fall, he will helji keep his chosen sport alive for future seasons. The Windmill Cuba JI.

The actual fact is that the number was near to 10,000, an indi- ! cation of the way in which scientific medicine is controlling this serious disease.
