Mr. Quinn, tnemberof thu lower houae
of the Ilnnoii 1,-gislituie, evidently be

in the words ot t'6 Springfield Journal,
favor a goo I deal of trie modern Delaware
whipping-poet and the ancient European
thumbscrews. It proposes to whip tie
off nler on the bure back with a raw-hide.
Mr. Quinn argues that the punishment for
brutal husbands is not sufficient under the
law: that if a husbmd is heavily fined or
imprisoned for the offense of assaulting l is
wile maliciously, the payment of the money
or his detention in custody is a punishment
to his family, and not ti him personally.
Therefore he proposes an braendmeut to

a man found guiliy of the crime shall be

times on tho bnre back. Wf are inclined
that such a law would be a dead letter
upon our statute books. Extreme penal
ties are a?ldnm enforced and as a result the
criminals who insure there escape all pun

sre provided flourish the more. It is

The Bear Not h Winter Society.
Like the hedgehog, the bear depends
entirely upon its accumulation of fat,
and during the fall is in yrime condi

enters upon its winter home. One of
these nests of the black bear, foundry

a huo'e tree, four or live of whose great
roots" branched out on each side. The

the food-supply, that auiraals havo been
