REFORM BY THE REFORMED.
TIIK mont aipnifimnt f.aturo of tha statonient jriven out by
Stanley W. Hooki SiM-cinl CoTnnirssioner for tho Supprpssion
of the Wlntr Slafj Traffic, in this: "Every kinti of known

Putting the victims to work tltenwlve on 'Hie reform movement wss

An experiment limited thus far to twenty-five girls hardly justi
fie a prediction that it will be
yet to be tried. A bettor basic
experiments with other sorts of offenders 'has had the desired remits.
John Wesley put into prartieo the principle that the beat way to
hoM a convert is to set him to conTrrtinfr, others. Before Wesley's
time 'the same plan had bean worked out 'by the proselyting churches
of every CTeed.
It has not before been tried with wavward girls became girls

good or bad. With the new order of . .womanhood wo are to get
a new philosophy in dealing with The problem. The start haa brought
good results. If each of the twenty-five reformed reforms another,
victory ii in sight.
THE DOCTORS AND THE DISPENSARIES
AT A MEETING of the Medical Society a report was adopted
condemning the administration of dispensaries on the ground
that "patiewts who oro able to pay for treatment are per
mitted to avail themselves of fhe advantages of oharitable institutions
to the exclusion of the really poor."
If the members of the eoeicty can prove that statement they
will have justified a demand for reform in dispensary administration.
But the reform will consist not in excluding (be rich mnn, but in
..ttgmcnting the service so that all can aba re in it.
A dispensary supported by public taxation is no4 a charity
when made use of by a taxpayer. He has as much right to it ss
he hns to a public school, public library, public park or public concert.
The health of every individual in a community is n matter of
lOncern to all. That is why dispensaries as well as hospitals are
i otablished. Moat men of means prefer to consult a doctor doing
private rather than a public practice, but the choice should not be
forced. The essential is that every man guard hia health by the
tise of the promptest and best means the civilization nf the eitv places
.it his disposal.
THE BEETLE AND THE HICKORY.
, EPOHTS concerning the extent to which hickory trees in and
near this city have been attacked by a dangerous hnrk beetle
should not pass unnoted by any person upon whose grounds
Mich trees are growing. Experience with the ravage done to chestnut
trees ought to be warning enough to all. Private owners must co
operate with State officials in the campaign. If in some or in m.tny
cases it be necessary to en down noble trees to prevent a spread of
the pest the sacrifice should he made.
It is said that even now in some localities the trees are dying
by thousands. Heavy, therefore, as may be the cost of efforts com
mensurate to the task of checking it, the loss will bo enormously
greater if the work be postponed. Though not so renowned in song
end story sa the oak and the pine and the palm and the olive, the
hickory to a most noble tree, giving good shade, looking stately, bear
ing fine nuts and growing the best of timber, whether for axe helves
or firewood. His votaries should save him from the beetle.
A BILL THAT MENACES WOMEN.
