The Court took occasion to score tho reckless driving of automobiles through the streets of Binghamton, te-ternng to several instances that had COme Under it narnn,,al .-.V.n..,n 'Law abiding citizens are helpless,") -usuce ki ley said, "against this kind f a fellow. Last evening1 I saw four men, well dressed and of respectable appearance driving at' a terrific pace through one of your principal streets that was not well lighted. On another occasion while her? I saw a young woman narrowly escape being struck y an automobile which had disregarded the law and failed to halt wnen a street car stopped. How the young woman escaped appeared a miracle to me. A bad bodv, a bad mind and a criminal Is often dressed up in respectable clothes. Something must be done. These bums and loafers goi iq realize that respectable people who attend to their affaTrs are going to be protected. Bum and loafer applies to you if you get drunk once. If the law was mandatory, as l wish it was, nd left the court no u.aureuon as to the mitigation of punishment, a lot of you fellows would go to prison. "I am thinking of vour wif nn baby and the kind-hearted people who " .uying io neip you. I am going to hold your case open, but I am going to provide that if another caso of this kind comes before me in the city of Binghamton, both you and thu other fellow will go to prison, or if you take another drink. I am waiting to get hold of some fellow who has not a wife and small famflv d him, and I will give, him the limit of tne taw. I am going Jo take the employer himself who disregards the rights of other, and when I get hold of him he is going jto do time." Nick Bogosta, charged with criminally assaulting Mary . Falatovick pleaded guilty through Attorney F. J. Mangan. Mr. Mangan explained Bogosta had enlisted in the army and had been brought here from Texas. He had married the young woman in the case and was making a model husband. District Attorney Lyon consented that sentence be suspended. The question of how Bogosta would be returned to the armv in Texas came up. Chief of Police Cronln said the man was relinquished to him by army officers with the understanding if he was not held he would be returned to Texas without expense to the Government. The court ruled, inasmuch as sentence had been suspended, the punishment of compelling the young man to get back to his command a.s best he could was very light. - Floyd Ryan, alias Floyd Blftir, indicted for committing numerous burglaries on the West 'Bide last Summer, entered a plea of not guilty to three indictments for burgariy, throughAt-torney Harry J. Hennessey. ; . Joseph Krysko, indicted for .burglary in entering a house in Klrkwood, pleaded not guilty through Attorney Hennessey.

B E PRETTY! TURN GRAY HAIR DARK Try Grandmother's Old Favorite Recipe of Sage Tea . and Sulphur. Almost everyone knows that Sage Tea and Sulphur, properly compounded, brings back the natural color and lustre to the hair when faded, streaked or gray. Years ago the only way to get, this mixture was to make it at home,' which is jnussy and troublesome. Nowadays, by asking at any drug store for "Wyeth's Sage and Sulphur Compound," you will get a large bottle of this famous old recipe, improved by the addition of other ingredients, for about 50 cents. Don't stay gray! Try it! No one can possibly tell that you darkened your hair, as it does it so naturally and evenly. You dampen a sponge or soft brush with it and draw this through your hair, taking one small strand at a time; by morning the gray hair disappears, and after another application or two, vour hair becomes beautifully dark, glossy and attractive. Wyeth's Sage and Sulphur Compound is a delightful toilet requisite for those who desire dark hair and a youthful appearance. It is not intended for the cure, mitigation or prevention of disease.
