anybody could see she didn't need

"It did make a diff'rencc to him. for
he was gittiu' oneasy, but when he

of any way out of it, so he went.
"The firs' thing she did after they got
on the verandy was to grab his hand.
Reub tried to pull it away, but she
grabbed it firm an' unyieldiu' an' says
in pleadin' tones:
" 'Oh, my b'lovcd one'."
"'I ain't neither your b'lovcd one,'
says Reub, soothiu'ly, but firmly. 'I
ain't never done nothin' to encourage

her soul's 'finity'd be 'long on the lies'

his hand tighter an' tried to pull his

0 such of the students of evil as wish to understand Us nature rather
than to practice It, there has been nothing more dismaying than the
apparent uncertainty and even Inability of the law In the case of
many offenders against it. Not only the law which Is supposed to
be administered in what are drolly called the courts of justice Is of
this faltering and erring effect, but the law by which a man of bad
conscience Judges an.l punishes himself, when there is no statute
made and provided for his misdemeanor. Is equally Inoperative. It
has been noted by those who have much to do with criminals that
remorse is apparently more the effect of temperament than of re
sponsibility, and that those fool it most who need feel it least. The guilty
man is said to be more concerned In getting off than in lamenting his misdeed;
and this fact, If It is a fact, has been turned to account by the agnostic science;
of a period which seems now closed, in disestablishing the notion of a moral
government of the universe. That science discarded the old Idea of Come
upplngs in the affairs of men. and left the strongest to survive, without regret,
by whatever means he would. It concerned itsedf with the physical and In
tellectual evolution of the race, and allowed the individual to wander in dark
ness as to what would happen to him if he did wrong, even what would happen
to him from himself, or from the god within him. But there are signs that
this sort of science has had its day, and there Is an obvious return to some cf
the former ideals, especially among the psychological Inquirers. Thesa
find it their business not only to ascertain new facts, but to revise the conclu
sions of science In regard to the old ones. The soul Is once more having a
chance and conscience is coming back to its own, at least in the interest of the
spectator. "Whether It will come back a chastened and instructed conscience,
or the sick and crazy thing it too often was, a Bourbon that has learned nothing
and forgotten nothing, remains to be seen. What is certain is that it Is meeting
1he recognition as a moral force which has been largely denied it for a genera
tion past, and that it is being studied with an intelligence freed from theological

Success, or even an approach to it, that entices the weary trav

Petit Larceny In Stamps.
"There is a fraud upon the public
that we would like to root out," said a
rostoffice Inspector, "but it is almost
impossible to reach the culprits, and to
make out cases against them difficult
;ven to get evidence on which to base a
stop order against their mail. This
fraud is simply the larceny of two-cent
stamps by means of 'fake' advertise
ments In the 'help wanted' columns of
reputable newspapers which have no
means of knowing the fraudulent na
ture of the advertisements. It costs
ouly a trifle to advertise for some kind
of help, and some of these advertise
ments will bring from 1000 to 1500
replies from people who are looking
for work or seeking to better them
selves. Fcur-fif;hs of these applicants
for the bogus 'Job' will inclose stamps
for reply. You can figure it out. Eight
