A LAw she' uld he enacted muakinig it a
crime pulnishamble by imprisonment for

on tile face of the globe that is becoming

it is the manner in which justice is ob
structed1 in our Courts of law, and a rev

necessarily be a farce, and the frequency
of such trials is wearing out the patience
of the people. Public opinion does not
stop to inquire into the legal verbiage

have none of it. Whether the pris.

ovERNO-io kricKBR, of Kentucky,
against whom the eharge of outrageously
abusing the pardoning power has been so
widely published, and for which charges
there seemed to be some ground, has
made the following reply in his annual
message. It vividly portrays the horrors
which criminals in Kentucky have been
compelled to endure:
" When I came into the Executi' office there
were nine hundred. and sixty-nin convicts in
the penitentiary, and only seven hundred and
eighty (780) cells, and these cells were but three
feet nine inches wide, six feet three inches high
and six feet eight inches long. In a word, there
were 189 more prisoners than Aells: and when
you put these -into cells with others you
had 878 men, two in a cell only three feet
nine inches wide. They were dying at a fear
ful rate, and I determined that the State Peni
tentiary should not be a charnel hoase. Yes,
I was determined that this should not be. It
was a disgrace to the State. Again, many men
are fined for slight offenses, even some for
trivial amusements, where nominal wagers are
laid, without any intention of violating law.
This ought not to be; but these annoyances
will occur so iong as our Commonwealth's At
torneys have parts and portions of the
fines assessed. Most of our Prosecuting
Attorneys are honorable men, but occa
sionally one may be found, who at all
times is prying into the most trivial
matters to find out the trifing
nffenses of some fellow-citizens, that he may
put a little money in his pocket. I earnestly
'-ecommend that our Commonwealth's Attor
neys be paid fair salaries out of the Public
Treasury ; that they be not driven to the miser
able necessity of hunting out the small pecadil
loes of their follow-men, that they may profit
by their fines and forfeitures. I mav, perhaps,
havo used the nardoninr power somewhat too
freely; but many men who blame me would,
perchance, have done just as I did if they had
all the evidence before them on which I acted.
The fee system should be abolished as far as
possible. I do not believe that any State
Prosecutor should be pecuniarily interested in
the result of any suit on behalf of the State."
The Attitude of Canada.
The Pall Mall Gazette, whose utter
ances are almost official, is of the op inion
that Canada will be annexed to the United
States within the next ten years. Such is
the popular feeling of Can-ada to-day. A
few years ago it was quite different.
The Canadians were superloyal and the
annexatiolmsts, even then a large body,
were the objects of popular hatred and
contempt, but during the past two de
cades, the trade relations between the
United States and the Dominion have
grown closer and closer until the two
countries are now commercially one.
The grand trunk of railway of Canada
lies half in the United States and half in
Canada. Portland, Me., during the
greater portion of the year is the ship
pimg p~ort for Canadian produce, and the
Caumdian telegraph system is now but a
branch of the Western Union. All these
circumstances work injuriously to the
interests of the Cannoaians. They see
that they would be greatly benefited by
annexation and, as a consequence, are
becoming anxious f~ the umon, What
has hitherto prevented this movement
from taking some regular shape are the
politicians and offieeholders. Canada
has more politics to the square mile than
any other country on the face of the
globe. It has an elaborate judiciary and
all ,the government of a large
empire. Union, with this country
would sweep away all these oflicials,
and, as a consequence, they oppose it.
T he Pall Malt Gazette does not say
how Great Britain would regard the
secession of its A merican domain, but the
coot and careless manner in which it
treats the subject is good evidence that
the British .lion would not roar very
loud should the Kanucks see fit to sever
their allegiance with the mother country.
Who Was NemnIsis I
In Grecian mythology Nemesis was a
female divinity who appears to have
been regarded as the personification of
the righteous anger of the godls. She is
represented as inflexibly severe to the
proudl and insolent. According to He
siod, she was the daughter of Night,
though she is sometimes called a daugh
ter of Erebus or of Oceanus. The
Greeks believed that the gods were ene
mies of excessive human happiness, and
that there was a power that preserved a
proper compensation in human affairs
from which it was impossible for the
sinner to escape. This power was em
bodied in Nemesis, and she was in an
especial manner the avenger of family
crimes and the humbler of the overbear
ing. There was a celebrated temple
sacred to her at Rhamnus, one of the
horoughs of Attica, about sixty stadia
distant from Marathon ; i~he inhabitants
of that place considered her the daugh
ter of Oceanus. According to a myth
preserved by Pausanias, Nemesis was
the mother of Helen by Jupiter, and
Leda, the reputed mother of Helen by
Jupiter, was only in fact, her nurse, but
this myth seems to have been invented
in later times to represent the dlivinle
vengeauce which was inflicted on the
Greeks and Trojans through the instru
mentality of Helen.

was not a telegraph operator. He simply
kept the station-house and flagged the

the runing of trains than the Tyoqon of
Japan. Every ono of the six realized
this, and yet it wasn't over two minutes
before one of the passengara approached
him and asked:
"Is that train on time?"
"II guess so.",
"You guess so! Don't you know ?"
" No, sir.

Here lie was calb-d away by the blow

up and inquired :
" Train on time ?"
" Yes, sir."
"Does it cross here?"
"If 1 should get left here to-night it
would cost somebody a good round sum."
In the course of the next ten miumues
the other two men approached and in
duilged in about tie same style of oti

minutes he was asked what time it was,
why lie was not an operator, why thi
traimis didn't make close connection, and
and why on earth he didn't hiav3 an

question, and his patience never waverd

Cruelly to Fish.
Talking with a gentleman of 84 years
-a man of great experience in practical
life, and withal one of humane instincts
and principles--we gathered inany in
teresting suggestions and ideas, that
wouldl be worth repeating. Among oth
er things, lhe referred to a lifelong prac
ticea he had always observed. In cateh
ing fish, he never failed to kill them im
mediately upon drawing them out of the
water, which is their natural element.
Every boy knows this fact, yet hardly
one in a hundred stops to think that a
living fish, deprived of the p~ecluliar
means of resp~iration that the water fur
nishies, must suffer similarly to a human
being cut off from its usual supply of
atmnospherie air. Death by sufiocation
is regardIed as terrible, and a fish out of
water, being deprived of the oxygen
that sustains its blood, doubtless suffers
intensely. It is the easiest thing to kill
ai fish, either by striking it a slight blow
upon the head or cutting its throat. It
is well known that the flesh of ani
mnahs wounded and then left to
die is unfit for food, and experi
enced fishermen say that a fish
should be killed immediately on being
caught in order to render it fit for the
table. But, asidbe from the question of
food, the subject should be considered
as oeof prineinhe. We know by the
fierce struggles ol the captive tish it is in
severe pain, and humanity dictates that
it should be speedily put out of misery.
We have no right to inflict needlessq
suffering upon any creature, adl the
torture of a fish is quite as bad as the
torture of a dog or a horse. Nearly
every day during the fishing season may
be observed boys carrying large strings
of fish through the streets, the move
ments of which show that they are alive
and in great pain and misery. In most
cases this is the result of thoughtless-.
ness or ignorance. Most boys would
dislike to be thought cruel, and, if they
were instructed by their parents and
others on this subject, would probably
follow the rule of humanity in the treat
mont of fishes, as they do in the care of
domoestic animals. We trust our young
friends who read this article will not
only follow these suggestions themselves,
but will try to induce their companions
