As a matter of fact the human tlend Is the "most easily classified of all the criminal types.. It is much easier to comprehend why-the "fiend" should slay a number of his wives, after you know his psychology, than it. is to see wny a young man or goon nome training, with a fine education and the best of parents, should embezzle funds "Trom a bank, violate a trust or enter into one of the hundreds .of so-called "legitimate bunco games:" DEATH PENALTY AB6XJSHGO. Murder is a horrible thing, whether is Is done en masse, ns in. tlme of war, 09 individually by the thug or gunman. In the United States, however, thu death pnnalty for this crime has been abolished, practically, through the leniency of Judges and Juries. If a husband kills a man who has offended' his wife, .he may bring in a defense of the "unwritten law" and many Juries will acquit him. If a wife kills her husband, she may plead Insanity and ill-treatment" and be sent to an asylum for a few months. The question of murder. Its causes nnd the types who commit this crime, is discussed exhaustively In "The Army of a Million Crooks." ::,:: " . There are five motives actuating this rnpltnl rrime.
