Farmers Are Best Citizens.
Jefferson City. Mo., Sept. 3. The
relative influences of country and
city life upon the production of
crime are discussed in a book short
ly to be issued by Thomas Speed
Mosby of this city, on "Causes and
Cures of Crime." Mr. Mosby cites
statistics to prove that the majority
of criminals in proportion to popu
lation, both in this country and in
Europe, come from the cities and
not from the country districts; and
he shows that the "honest farmer"
is indeed a reality, and not an im
aginary personage who is simply
referred to in political campaigns
for the purpose of catching the
country vote. Mr. Mosby was form
erly Pardon Attorney of Missouri,
and is the author of the law creat
ing the Missouri State Board of Par
dons and Paroles. He believes that
the best citizenship of every nation
is produced on the farm.
