Country people continue to view with amazement the in? creasing amount of crime exis. tii)K in our big citio?. The newspaper nccounts of tlie rob? beries are ho numorous as to load one to tho belief that it ie unsafe even to walk the streets of some of these cities, especial? ly if a person has the appear? ance of bolug a prosperou? man from & country town or district It would not be impossible for the police to search every known criminal or suspicious charac? ter whouever they are mot, and jail those upon whom ooneoal od weapons am found. A re? putable citizen found with a gun upon his person is prompt? ly pinched, hauled into court and lined. The criminal ele? ment loads itself with "urtil I lory" and walks the streets with impunity, roady to shout | iU tii? lirst opportunity. City authorities who permit these conditions to prevail are dan? gerously near to being in the same class with tho gunmen who commit the crimes, for.the man who aids" or abets iu sec. ond only to the principal. Cold facts may ha uup|U(lHant things to read, but they are beneficial where people have the courage to act upon them. It takes a bright woman to appear dull when an unwelcome suiter hovers around.
