JENNIE WOODCOCK, Secretary, MRS A DA FARNHAM Treasurer What Crime Costs. The most notable paper read be fore the National Prison Associa tion last year was one presented by Eugene Smith on "th cost of crime/' So important were the facts which Mr. Smith brought out, that the house of represent atives hah printed the document in pamphlet form for general distri bution. The fisuies cited are startling. Wh at share of public taxation is properly chargeable to crime? It is usually thought that the sum total i= the cost of maintaining prisons, the police and criminal courts. Bu Mr. Smith shows that this is but a fraction of it. In addition ''theie is hardly any item of public expenditure that is not, directly or indhectly, en larged by reason of the existence of crime, or that would not be diminished if crime could be ex terminated." Fo example, a large part of the work of every legisla ture is devoted to matters relating to crime, both in devising penal statutes, and in providing for the erection and maintenance of penal and charitable institutions made necessary by crime. So, also, the executive and judicial departments of government have a large part of their attention engaged in dealing with criminal matters. Th cost of criminal prosecutions is enor mous. Then, the annual sum ap propriated for the support of charitable institutions, amounting in the United States to $40,000,- 000, is, in for the largest part, made necessary by crime. I com monly happens that the sending of a man to prison breaks up a fam ily and throws its members on the public for support. A careful study of the conditions shows that at least one-half of all public char itable costs are due to crime. The criminal statistics of nine representatn cities of the United htate^ gi\ Mr. bmith the basis for some startliug exhibits. The-.e cities are: Xew York, Cleveland, Chicago, St. Loui San Francisco, Richmond, Charleston, Savannah, and Xew Orleans. Th cost of crime, a- measured taxation in these centers, may be conserva tively estimated at an average from $4.00 to $4.50 for each inhabitant. But. in order not to exaggerate, he places it at $3.50 per inhabitant. Upon this basis he computes the cost for the population living in cities. Fo the population living in the towns and sparsely settled districts he places the average tax for crime at $1.00 per inhabitant. In this way he obtains the follow ing result: Citv and coantj taxation chargeable tocnme30 00) 000 inhabitants of cities at per capita rate of $3 50 ?10" 000 0C0 Town and countj taxation chaige able to ciime45 000 M0 inhabi tants of the open counti\ at per capita rate or 1 00 45 000 000 Federal and state taxation charge able to line not less than 50 000 000 Tot 1 1 $-300 000 000 But this js on the beginning. I represents only what is paid iu the way of pre\ ention. I has a relation to the whole cost some thing like that which the cost of maintaining a tire department may have to the looses by tire. From reliable statistics it has been ascer tained that persons who follow crime as a .business realize from their spoliations on the community Si,00 each per annum. Bu this does not represent half the loss sustained, since it is a well-known fact that the receivers or purchas ers of stolen goods get the lion's share of the profit*. There are now in the United States at least 250,000 persons who live by crime, and whose gross annual income would, on this estimate, amount to $400,000,000. This sum Mr. Smith thinks cannot be more than one half or two-thirds of the losses it represents. Why is it that this government document says so little about the TH liquor traffic as the chief creator of criminals and promoter of crime? If Mr. Smith had projected his in vestigations a little further he would have found that the saloon is at the bottom of two-thirds of our crime, and that our people spend annually $1,000,000,000 for intoxicating liquors! Th sum is so enormous that we cannot com prehend it!Epworth Herald. Fought For His Life. "My father and sister both died of consumption," writes J. T.

A chiropodist advises that foot com fort is much enhanced if all callous places on the feet are made perfectly smooth. This can be done easily and the feet kept in excellent condition by using a fine pumice stone every morn ing after the bath. The pumice stone should, of course, be wet, and if rubbed daily over the points on the feet that have hardened or shown a tendency to harden the places can be made and kept smooth. After a corn has been removed, too, a light rubbing daily of the place where it has been will often prevent its return.
