Every "Jack the Ripper" is a madman. Instead of being pun
ished, they should be cured. Most of them can be cured by hyp
notic treatment according to the practices of the new school of
therapeutists, of which Morton Prince, M. D., of Boston, is, perhaps,
the head. Those who cannot be so cured in that way, may be cured
by surgery. And if any remain uncurred, they belong in sanitoria,
and not in the electric chair or state prisons.
They are, better dead than alive, if they cannot 'be healed, but
we cannot afford to murder them.
If we had had some agency for the treatment of such cases of
perverted psychology, perhaps Nathan Schwartz might have been
treated years ago, and Julia Connors saved.
ALAS, HE GRABBED THE WRONG HANDLE!
"You have some fine ducks this
morning," said the keeper of a
boarding house to a poulterer.
"Yes, sir." "What is the price?"
"You can take your choice, sir. I
have them at all prices." "Well, I
want to give the house a treat, but
I do not want the ducks to be too
tender. There are a dozen here
pick out four of the toughest"
The poulterer obeyed "Here, sir,
you have four of the toughest
birds in my shop." "Thank you.
I'll take the other eight."
Manager How many orders
did you get in that house?'

Two. One was to get out, and the
other to stay out.
