shopworn ones the alibi mistaken identity and Insanity Sit Irt any of the court rooms to the criminal court building on the North side and listen to the de fenses that are made Examine these cases here the prisoner Is guilty How does he de fend himself He tries to prove that he was not at the place where the crime was cfmmllted or he puts hi the plea of insanity or be tries to prove that the witnesses against him should not believe their own eyes anti that they took somebody else for him Judges on the bench have told me they would be startled out of their composure if a professional criminal was to try any other defense The alibi Is the favorite It is a saying In one partof town that a good alibi can be bought for 250 Perhaps it Is Its cheapness that recommends It but we lawyers

Mother Are SoUirtlme Guilty A woman who lives alone in a coun try place recently applied to a New York and philanthropic association for a young girl to serve as a helper and companion One was soon furnished a browneyed straighthaired child of 15 or more fieW slender and illdeveloped for her age but bright of face and gentle of oiceAD Her mother had evidently neglected berihome and her work and consequently her small daughter so that the girl was poorly nourished and shabbily clad The New York Tribune tells of her experi In ences in what was to be her summer homeThe mistress of the house bad occa sion to send the girl on one or two er rands which involved some small money transactions which were accomplished with accuracy and Judgment Hut when dishwashing time arrived four hours lag were consumed in getting some 20 or 30 pieces put away iu the china closetrcT- o begin with Emmollne as the girl was was called was discovered with the the dishpan un the tloor while she herself and stood beside it bending over from the hips to reach the dishes end Why Emmeline exclaimed her the employer why do you work In that of awkward way Why dont you put the pan on the table The bottom of its dirty maam and I wanted to keep the table clean was thereplyDid OU never help your mother about the house Emmeline her mis tress asked her one day when she was particularly awkward in performing of some simple work Nom was the answer She says shed rather do a thing a dozen times than tell me howtlSo the child had been allowed to grow no up far from robust In health and almost wholly without a knowledge of how to do keep herself from starvation or want even with an abundance of raw materials about her She could not sew neatly to and had little Idea of cleanliness but she was alert and anxious to please when any direct request was made of her Thetl poor child was only a sufferer for thetl sins of a careless and Improvident motherWhy didnt you put the new chimney on the lamp asked her employer oner day seeing the old cracked globe stilltl In placerlI It Isnt clean was the reply SuchI a thing as making It clean had apparently never occurred to her She seemed incapable of taking

the sturnjj She was familiar with several ortCt fltff known writers but the glamour of the street shadowed even these mental positt sessions Wholly without Judgment in mogtt matters and lacking

Is true that weak utterance or a cracked voice may proceed from ill j health but the high nasal tones that our foreign critics find so disagreeable- are almost invariably due to heedlessnessNobody to be told that and emphasis are different things people forget and scream aud every such outburst whether of Joy or of anger coarsens the voice especially If as la frequently the case the stabreath in

or so aft was tifthey had been placed in a vase I noticed tits that they had withered I was of the act of removing them when my mother stopped me sayingDont On throw thorn out they will come to life I during the night and will be all right tomorrow morning I at once began a course of observations and experiments In order to discover If possible the cause for this seem death and resurrection Jt was noticed that the withering pro began the very moment the flower separated from the parent plant petals losing stiffness and resilience drooping toward the stamens This wilting continued until finally at the of half or threequarters of an hour blossom presented every appearance being moribund The immediate wilting indicated that whatever the cause for It that cause was Instantaneous In action and bad to do with the vital principle of the plant itself there was instant interference with the lifeproducing and lifesustaining functions It was soon determined that the hour cutting during daylight had nothving to do with the production of the 1 phenomena for the flowers were gathered at daylight sunrise 10 a m 12 m p m and seven p uu and it made difference the wilting process took I place Nor had temperature anything toI with it But flowers cut at night would not begin to wither until they were exposedl j light This indicated that light hadI something to do with causing this QuastJI death and if this hypothesis were true 1 cause was primarily chemical in na and occasioned In all probability by certain particular rays I had discovered In former experiments that the orange red and yellow were not inimical to plant life 1 thought It hardly necessary to I them in this Instance I was satII had to deal with certain unique effects of the violet ray nnd those still more wonderful rays the
