In a recent paper she calls attention to tho fact that Keinmelor's father and mother were butchers by trade, while the samo was also true of tho parents of Jesse Pomoroy, tho youthful murderer, Who from infancy took such fiendish delight in torturing and killing animals. How little heed is paid to tho law of heredity and tho atmosphere in which a child lives while his taste and habits of thought are taking expression.
