John Marshall High School won the
three-cornered open-air track meet for
the prep school track championship of
Richmond yesteraay, by piling up a
total of 81. nearly twlco as many as j
tho two other competitors. Richmond |
Academy wns second, with 30 points, |
and McGulre's was the trailer, with 25. '
It was by far the prettiest meet I
held in Richmond In years, and the !
junior athletes made some lime whlcn I

to the blush. A fair crowd?not as 1

favorite, and the regularity with which
tho athletes from tho public school \
scored Indicated that the confidence!
was not misplaced.

While John Marshall was confessed - I
ly the strongest of the three schools,
to Marlow, of Richmond Academy,
should go the honors. He Is one of the
heodlest. fastest und most consistent

the good days of McNeil und others at
Richmond College. Not only Is "so
good judge of pace, but he has the '?
stamina to carry htm across tho tape.

Kcluy llucc Feature.
The relay race was tho climax ot j
the afternoon's sport, and had It gone .
over a longer course there Is no riues- I
ihm but that Marlow, last man for the .
Academy, would have closod the gap I
and captured that event for his school.
As It was, he appreciably closed up
the gup which was between him and
McGuire's. High School won the race.
Cosby led off. but was eaten to the
first station by Wilson, who started
for McGuire's. Beattle, for Academy, ;
Ancftll, touched by Wilson, main- .
talncd his lead over Clopton. and the
two widened the distance hetween j
themselves and' Nettles, second man
for Academy. On the third quarter,
Satterheld, running for Hltrh School,
overtook Carroll, for McGuire's. and
gave the race to Wallarstcln with a
good lead. Seymour. for Academy,
failed to tpakc up any of the loss for
his team. The last lap saw Wallersteln ?
away In front, with Mercer putting
up a pretty race, and HarlOw unbot
tllng a world of speed. Only the short
distance to the tape kept the Academy
boy from wlnn'ng. It was a great
If the people of Richmond were con?
versant with the Intense excitement of

tinues, and H Is the aim of those In
charge to have the whole of the $ie,000
desired In hand by tho close of this
While tho work of securing this
money. continues here, actual work of
building the road is In progress, and
many miles of the road between thl3
city and Old Point Comfort have been
completed. Up in Doulsa county the
people are not less anxious to sea tho
amount raised, atid the farmers are
giving to the fund with exceeding lib
erellty. Thus far, while the subscrip?
tions have not amounted to as much
as was expected, nevertheless sufficient
has been done to assure tho building
of the highway, and now plans are
being made to practically apply the
funds In hand, which, when placed
with tho county and State aid. means
the completion of the road.
Of the amount subscribed, practi?
cally all lias been in cash, which ren?
ders It possible to determine just how
fast the plans are being matured, and
means also that just as soon as the
fund Is large enough to guarantee and
permit contracts to he closed, bids will
be asked for the construction of
bridges, and road supervisors will put
their forces at work In places whero
tho work i3 not already being done.
Under the kind of supervision which
will characterize the work of con?
structing this road, It Is expected, to
build the road at much less cost per
mile than has been the cost of build?
ing heretofore with the ordinary road
force. On tho road being constructed
between Richmond and Old Point much
better road is being built for 1150 per
mile than -was built In some of the sec?
tions of this State where material was
as accessible and labor as abundant, at |
a cost of $600 per mile.
Tt Is urged that motorists take ad?
vantage of the present good weather
and make the run down to Old Point
over the road being constructed, and
see Just what Is being done. Tho
round trip may easily be made In one
day, with considerable time for rest
at Old Point, and those who would
avail themselves of the trip will find
the roads In much better shape and
see the work being carried forward
In much larger extent than Is gen?
erally considered.
The committee In charge of secur?
ing subscriptions again urges those
who have not contributed to do so at
once, cither by handing same to some
solicitor of the association or by niall

Legislature what is known as the

For Juvenile Courts.
What, has been accomplished by
juvenile courts was discussed by Judge
Julian Mack, of Chicago, former Judge
of the Juvenile court of the Windy
City,, and now of the Court of Com?
merce of the Unltod States.
He referred to a welfare conference
which has been In progress for more
than a week In Chicago. He called at?
tention, to an exhibit there which cost
$75,000, and which was paid for by a
wealthy woman- He urged that stops
be taken to bring It to Virginia, and
stated that plans -ire already under
way lo send it to various points
throughout the country, that It may
aid In the work of benefiting the chil?
The speaker pointed out that the
foremost reason for the establishment
of a juvenile court was that it kept
tlio boys and girls away from adult
criminals. "There is no neod," he said,
"to send the riollnnuent child, tho neg?
lected child, the child who violates the
law, or any other child, to prison. It
Is the duty of the Stato/T? earo for Its
.youngor generation and bring up the
boys and girls into decent walks of
lives, that they may become useful I
cltlr.cns. v
State*1 KlKhtH.
"In most eases the .State Is relieved .
of this responsibility. It used to" be
thought that a State had not the power
or authority or the legal theory to
tako charge of a child. That lden has )
no foundation; It has been exploded
by the highest authorities. But If
nxtural parents fall or neglect to do
tor the child, the State, as the Hit 1- j
mate parent, has a right to make Its \
destiny for good, decent citizenship. j
"The Juvenile court is a new tiling. |
It was first established In Chicago, the
outgrowth of a philanthropic work. 1
and by it the best modern thought con?
cerning tho child has received rein- |
forcement. i
"In the eyes of the law there Is no i
distinction between tho child \and adult
criminal. This has resulted In the
mingling of the child with the hard
j ened thief, pickpocket, murderer; cast
; Into prison, a boy consorts with crimi?
nals of tho vilest types: the girls with J
women who have gonP the paths of i
Keep Avrny Front Felons.
"Instead of trying to raise up a ,
generation of good children, the StatesI
have been trying to stigmatize thorn.
The Juvenile Court no longer stigma?
tizes them and punishes them by cast?
ing them Into a felon's cell. To-day
we tako the child In hand and try to
show it tho error of its ways; educate
I It and brins It up. We bring it out ,ot
! the wrong path into the right and to
j decency, and the State. In Justice to all
Its children, ought to perform this..
I dttlv.
"Don't arrest children when It Is not
necessary?there is entirely too much
arresting in this country- anyhow, com?
pared with the European nations.
There is no need of this. and. if thero
Is need of arresting n child, the tiling
to do Is not to lake It to prison.
"Whore there are Juvenile Courts
thero are detention homes, and If It
Is necessary to keep a boy or girl
there for ono or two days, he or sho Is
kept occupied. Those detention homes
have teachers and children held theru
lose no time from their studies. 1
The Judge's Surroundings.
"The Juvenile judge needs no ex?
terior effects to add to his dignity. He
doesn't want a high bench, but a tabiu
on the floor level where he can talk
to an erring child.
"If It Is found that a child has been
doing wrong, do not send him to a
reformatory, put endeavor to place him
under the environments of a home. He
may be returned to the homo of his
parents or guardians. Here Is where
tho work of probation officers comes In
They constantly keep an alert eyo
upon all such cases
"If you can't show your Loglslnturo
that It Is money In the pocket of tho
Slate to care tor Its children, you will
find Individuals >4~ho will be willing to
aid In a fund to start the movement,
and the work will quickly enough bo
taken up by the authorities."
Law, nut No Money.
In submitting tho report of the com?
mittee on Juvenile Court, Chairman C.
B. Cooke. of the Civic Improvement
League, said:
"The last Legislature enacted a pro?
bation law which helps some, but It
provided no Judges, and far worse,
providod no money to carry the law
Into operation.
"I should like to see In Virginia tho
plaqlng out system ntiopted, wheru
juvenile delinquents are rem to good
homes In the country, and If necessary
the State should pay the board of such
child rather than spend tho same
amount of money,, or perhaps more, to
keep them In a reformatory."
In discussing Virginia's placlng-out
work, President George H. Denny, of
Washington and Lee University, chair?
man of the State Board of Charities
and Corrections, said at the session
held yesterday afternoon in the Vir?
ginia Mechanics' Institute:
Cnroil For In Fnmllles.
"It Is recognized that orphanages |
and similar institutions are necessnry
for the temporary, and, perhaps. In |
rare cases, for the more or less per?
manent cure of dependent children: tout I
Just at this time in Vlrglnln we need
to put the emphasis strongly upon the
duty of all classes of Institutions to
place these children In families, when]
proper homes can be found "
"There has been more or less criti?
cism of certain phases of this kind
of work n Virginia, as elsewhere. At|
times thero has been an echo of sus?
picion of actual wrongdoing. There are I
few things in all the catalogue of
crime more heinous than the traffic in i
children, and the Stato Board of
Charities has the fixed determination
that any complaint of moral de?
linquency In this direction shall he
dealt with in such a manner as will
save the honor of this Commonwealth
and protect tho Interests of Its un?
fortunate children. The Legislature
has provided the power and laid on
it the responsibility of inspecting the

public institutions.
5. Your home merchants help make a good local market
for everything you have to sell, and that market more than any
other one factor gives your land its present value.
6. Your home merchants are your good friends, ever ready
to extend a helping hand in time of need.
7. If this community is good enough for you to live in and
make your money in, 'tis good enough to spend it in.
8. The best citizens in this community are those who believe
in and practice home patronage. Be one of the best!
9. Merchants in the distant city give you nothing valuable
that the home merchants cannot give you, and the former can?
not and will not do for you many things the latter do gladly.
10. Every dollar kept in circulation in this community
helps increase property values. Every dollar sent out of this
community that could as well be spent here hinders the wheels
of progress and helps to build up some other community at
your expense.
