. TRUTH ? I
miscuous, anyway. It Is. getting so
that one can kill and slay on almost
any old provocation and be acqnittec
on tho grounds of "emotional Insani
ty," and after his acquittal a lot of
hysterical old hens will gather around
the crime-tainted murderer and slob
ber over him and ask God to bless
him becauso ho has removed from
. earth and Us temptations ono of thoh
There must bo something in the
psychology of woman tho writer does
not understand, because how on eart
a sensible female can congratulate a
w ..iler on being acquitted for a
S ' foul and bloody murder, Is a mystery
too deep for untanglement with pres-
I ent lights.
f If this chap had gone and killed tho
, soldier for presuming to address his
wife, or had walloped tho everlasting
wadding out of him with a moist elm
club, there might have been some rea
son for gathering around him in buff
cochin convention and scatterng salty
tears over his wardrobe, but tho dirty
coward did not give the girl any
chance to explain; he simply killed
her, and his astute attorneys set up
the defense of emotional insanity, and
won out on It.
Meantime the woman Is dead. She
will remain dead. Years may come
and years may go, ago wll follow age
and aeon will chase aeon through tho
endless cycles, and she will still re
main dead. She has been deprived of
the right to live tho few short years
allotted to human kind, and her own
sex are making their noses red shed
ding salty water becauso of their ex
treme joy and oxhuberatlon at his re
lease, while he Is free to wed another
woman, and, if some fellow writes her
a letter, kill her.
We honestly believe If a few fellows
afflicted with this sort of emotional
Insanity could be executed, the ail
ment, malady, or whatever selcnce
designates it, would decrease ma
terally. That laddybuck was no more
Insane than was Gulteau or Czolgocz.
Now that's right. This emotional In
sanity business Is principally poppy
cock. And what's more, to use a com
mon phrase, about nine-tenths of the
sensible people of this country, men
and women, know It is; and yet, In
tho face of all tho facts, thnk of this
band of bonnetted blondes and bru
nettes congratulating a man on escap
ing the gallows for tho killing of his
A woman is a royal Institution. She
Is a good fellow everywhere you meet
her. As a sster she is a precious
thing; as a sweetheart she is price
less in value; as a wife sho Is all the

our buttons, sho mends our clothes,
sho tidies us np, sho confides In us, she

ADVERTISE IN TRUTH
EYE-STRAIN AND CRIME.
Four hundred Inmates of tho El
m Ira (N. Y.) State Reformatory havo
been found by tho ophthalmologist of
that Institution to possess sonic defect
of vision. Only the most glaring de
fects wero brought out, says tho
Literary Digest, under tho con
ditions imposed by tho state, and such
errors ns a difference In tho vision of
both eyes wero Ignored. In a recent
issue of Tho Buffalo Medical Journal,
Dr. Georgo M. Gould, of Philadelphia,
points out tho handicap under which
these young criminals arc laborlna
when they attempt almost any work of
civilization, and contends that, instead
of punlfching them, they should bo giv
en accurate and scientific glasses, to
enable them to make their living: He
"The state, in Its Infinite stupidity,
'loubly punishes them both by impris
onment and by Improper glasses. Such
is governmental wisdom Put up
on 108 out of any 400 moral and well
raised boys of twelve years of auo
spectacles which would correct tho
ametropia (abnormal refraction of tho
ye) of any ono of thoso 108 boys of
the reformatory, and they will cither
?et into tho reformatory, a hospital,
or their graves within a fow years."
Dr. Gould also states emphatically
that If legislators or officers of tho
government wero treated In a similar
nannor "there would be different laws
enacted, at the next legislative sea
lions, and tho administrators would
3co that they wero executed." Ho
charges tho state with "amazing blun
dering" and says that tho state will
not only not pay tho oculist, but It will
not let him do his work sclentiflcnll
It will not buy the glasses, and It will
not take care to havo the glasses fitted
by an expert optician.
Tho author asserts that It would bo
a money-making business If a prlvato
oculist and optician would take tho
lob of reducing tho state approprla
tions'for criminal institutions 50 or 75
nor cent, nnd insists that this could
bo easily done by preventing tho ocu
'ar diseases and reflexes which direct
y causo crime In tho young. What
Mie state does, or rather neglects to
do, was brought out by an Inquary
which Dr. Case, ophthalmologist of
'ho Elmlra Reformatory, directed to
123 penal institutions Dr. Case ask
il If visual acuteness wero tested
when a boy or prisoner was received;

what tho results wero; whether glass- M
cs were prescribed; tho effect on con- M
duct, etc.; whether oculists wero cm- M
ployed; whether appropriations were M
made for such work, and so on. Sixty- M
three Institutions failed to answer; of fl
those who did reply, G2 per cent had M
no oculist and only 5 per cent even M
had an optician. Moreover, It camo M
out that only 1G per cent had any ap- M
proprlatlon for such work whatsoever, ' M
in some of these Institutions, Dr. Casn 1 M
avers, baskets of all kinds of lenses M
nro placed before tho boys, and they ; M
arc ordered to chooso any pair they M
please. "Tho cntlro nffalr," says Dr. M
Gould, "is a farce, an absurd bit of M
