If an "i'trage or even a murder is com mitted by one "i these, that particular one (when it is u late) is taken care of after a fashion, but others known to e e uall detec tive are allowed an unrestricted freed' in. it is not comm n sense, nor is it fair to the unfortunate nor to his people. A known mental defective should be placed beyond the possibility of doing harm and where he can receive such treatment a may possibly help and per haps in some rare instances cure his malady. 1 The latest attention alqng tins line of any importance is now lie iug given in ( "iik county at the instance of State's Attorney ( rowe and he certainly deserves commendation for taking it up for serious attention. The recommendations resulting from the conference, which included such experts on defectives as hief Justice Hson and Dr. Hickson and experienced officials like Mr, Crowe. Chief Fitz rrtorris, Deputy Aleck. I 'anile Agenl Reed, are practical and we trust will be realized. They are for a farm for the isi lation of crim inal defectives, for regulations denying parole to persons found de fective, and tot provision for the psychopathic examination of per sons arrested for crime. This ci rtimission is practically silent on the defectives in gener al who have shi wn no criminal tendencies ta-- yet I but it i- a crass which needs attention, and will doubtless be taken care of when the more important criminal defectives are provided for.

W hen these indi viduals are finally "run down" it is a ten t" one shot that be or the will be found to be nifsntallydefective. And yet a number of well known irresponsililcs ur "simples" are on the streets even dav, ab solutely without surveilhance of any kind. Is this common sense?

Astronomers are still dabbling in figures of gigantic propor tions. N'ot long ago they gave to the world the statement that by a process ot stellar-measurements the size oi a star, niw itrninmentlv than visible m trie evenings, was tuenn seven millions turn our sun. Previously they had measured the sun and found that lu minary to be I(, times larger than the earth. Vccordine to those figures that gigantic star. Betelgeuze, is something like nine trillions times larger than this little sphere thai we call the earth. Such figures are practically incomprehensible to the ordinary mind, requiring an object lesson to illustrate them. Here is something which might reduce the fact to ordinary understanding. Take the smallest size shot on the market, the ordinary bird shot. It requires something like twelve thousand of these to make a pound. Lettms one of these little pellets, scarcely larger than a pin head, represent the earth, it would require nearly twenty-eighl pounds of them to represent the sun. But the star Betelgeuze, many millions times 1 ...1.1 . . 1 , . , iturgci man ine sun, would ue represented liv three lm enty-five thousand tons as compare.! with the earth comparison is almost beyond understanding unless tht duced to car or ship loads.
