Tho llrst of such sentences was im posed on a young woman of respec table parentage, who had boon arrest ed more than 10U times. A few days ago the young woman lolled against the brass railing that rims his desk and pleaded, "Guilty and proud of it. Do you get that?" to the chargo of being druuk and disorderly in the street. After a lecture Justice Ulrich said: "Now, Victoria, I'm going to give you another chance to make good. Can you read?" She answered, "Yes, sir!" "Then I sentence you to come to this stationhouse every Sunday morn ing and spend an hour with tho ma tron, reading the Bible. Either that, or the 'cut.'" Victoria chose the Bible. When she appeared the next Sunday morning, she had evidently made a brave ef fort to appear respectable. She has been going to the stationhouse every Sunday for weeks now, and she thinks she will never fall by the .wayside again. That was the llrst case. Justice Ulrich was led to apply It again, and it is working well. He is positive that he has found a plan that works.—The Christian Herald. WHAT THEN?

But should we reach the heights of fame A nong our trusted fellow men, With laurels won, 'tis but a name; What then? What then? And wealth, perchance, it may be ours, The outcome of long toilsome years; We recognize its ruling powers To still our fears.

Benton, the British ranchman, Sir Edward said: "Communications with tha govern ment of the United States are still proceeding, but I would repeat what I said last week—that these communi cations do not Imply that the govern ment of the United States haa any re sponsibility for what lias taken place —by which 1 mean, of course, tho death of Benton. Will Welcome Action "While, therefore, we shall welcome any action that the United States is prepared to take to secure justice, wo have no title to demand as a right that the United States should Itself resort to the use of force. "One can demand that another gov ernment should go to all lengths to secure reparation for a crime only when one holds that government in some way responsible for the commis sion of the crime. "So far the United States haa shown at least as much interest in the death in Mexico of a British subject as it has In the cvase of outrages on Amer ican citizens—for I understand that several Americans have been killed in Mexico. And tho United States haa shown every desire to use Its influence to secure protection for British sub jects in the Mexican territory con trolled by the constitutionalists. "I would therefore sum up the situ ation by saying that if tho United States thinks it proper,to take further steps, either oil behalf of its own citi zens or of a British subject, we will | gladly wait the result. But If for rea -1 sons of Its own the United States does not think It desirable to take such steps, wo must, of course, reserve to ourselves the right to secure repara tion whenevor it is In our power to do so. Slay Take Action Later "The violent death of a British sub« pect and the refusal by those In Mex ico to allow the circumstances to ba Inxestigated make It incumbent upon us to do what we can on our own behalf. "Assuming that the United Statea does not desire Itself to take any re sponsibility for intervention, it has been urged upon me that we should take Immediate action, without, how ever, giving me any suggestion or In dicaton of whtjt action w can taku all the moment. "I must repeat what I said lasb week—that there is nothing we can do under present conditions. ! "We have no intention of engaging in such a fantastic attempt as the sending of a force—which to be effec tive would have to be a very large i force—lnto any part of Mexico." i THROAT\ yTroubles pH Dangerou * because the swollen glands and inflamed membranes often affect other tissues and impair their healthy action.
