that he won't be the last.
"One good thing about the wrist watch," says the Charlotte Ob
?ver. "is that one was never lo9t in a crap game."
AN OVERDOSE OF LENIENCY.
In publishing the cases which have been tried before the recorder
during the last several months, we have noticed that but very few
of them have had any tines attached to thom.
For example, there have been innumerable cases of speeding. We
believe that we are safe in 9aviug that there have not been more
rhan two or three of these eases which have received any other pun
ishment than "costs." Tf it is a violation of the city ordinance
to run a machine more than eight miles an hour, those who repeatedly
Tlreak the law should be made to pay a larger fine upon eaeh offense.
Otherwise, the entire ordinance might as well be repealed, for if it is
supposed for one minute that the slapping of a two-thirty-five fine
on the back of a man, who is able to own and run an automobile, i?
going to have any effect, a great mistake is being made.
Many cases of intoxication have also been brought up of late and
in each one, the verdict is invariably "costs." It appears to make
liti If di^rence whether s mnn is up for his first* off??nsp of whether
he lian been brought up s?? many times that he has ljjst count.
If it is the inrention of the local court to put a halt on the viola
tion of city ordinances, something else must be done besides making
a man pay two or throe dollars. It is all well and good to be lenient
with a person who is arrested the first time, but when that same
person is brought up again on the same charge, it is ridiculous to
impose the same penalty upon him that he wm made to undergo for
hi?; initial offense.
THE PROPER STEP FOR PROHIBITION.
Senator Dillingham has proposed to the Senate judiciary com
mitter an amendment in the nature of a substitute which would shut
alcoholic liquors out of interstate commerce. In other words, the
Senator desires to make it prohibitory to ship liquor into a State
which has already expressed itself as in favor of prohibition.
The Senator's plan is, in our opinion, the best of the many sug
gestions that have been made in the past regarding the bringing
about of prohibition. It will give absolute prohibition to those
States which have already wted for prohibition and it will not in
terfere with those States which desire to remain "wet." It will also
steer entirely clear of that delicate question of "States rights."
It is true that it will keep those residents in "drv" states, whh
desire to obtain liquor, from doing so, but when the majority of
.voters in these States have voted in favor of prohibition, the voice
of the minority does not count for much. They need not be con
Under our present plan of obtaining national prohibition,?that
is, one State at a time?none of the States will be entirely dry until
the last one votfs against pr?>hibition, for the ?listilleries and breweries
in that last Stato can tend liquor all over the country into those
oth??r States. Under Senator Dillingham's plan, however, not one
drop of liqnor would l?e allowed in a dry State. I
North Carolina is said to be a prohibition State. but is it ? There
is enough liquor in North Carolina toda^to float. the large-t battle
ship of the L nited States navv. riiere will I* as long as there is
one single State in the Union that ia wet. If the Anti-Saloon-League
and the other prohibition enthusiast* would give up their fight for
national prohibition at one swoop and get behind Senator Dilling
ham's measure, they would accomplish more for true prohibition
than they can do in ten years under their present methods.
Another side of the subject is also to he considered. There has
been mnch argument against national prohibition. Many prominent
men have declared. that, it will^hring about, a state of lawnesane*s
and violation of federal laws. tTp to the present time, although
there has been some moonshining going on.yt has amounted to but
comparatively little. If Senator Dillingham's plan goes through and
the ahipmcnt of liquor iato dry territory is absolntelv forbidden, wa
may have a chance to see how conditions in those States, which are
effected, will adjust themselves.
Taken from every point of view, the Senator'? bill, if it goes
through, will he one of the most important that will he passed at
?hi? session of Congress.

How Baby Becky
Put Out a Fire
With Her Milk.
Put Out the Fire With
Her Bottle of Milk.
?'^?\HIS Is trne story night," said daddy as the children wlggUftl with glee
when he aat down. "On the east aide of New York, where thousunda
and hundreds of thousands of Uttto chlldreu have to-live in small
rooms and have no pleasant dooryards to play lu, dwell a widowed
mother and her five children. To buy them food and clothe* she works all
day at her bread stall, which stands where two streets meet. Uerc most all
night and all day people stream by like a human river, so that this mother
often makes quite a lot of money with her queer braided loaves. She is ao
busy that she has to leave her baby, Eva, her aeven-year-old sick boy. Jacob,
and her four-year-old Becky home to take care of themselves. One day eleven
ye&r-old Barab came bdme from school, and what do you think she found?"
"Oh, tell us, daddy J" cried Jack and Evelyn without gueaslng.
"She found that the baby clothes her mother had left drying betilud the
kitchen stove \iad caught fire. I'cly red Anmes were charging 4*? the wall
paper, nnd tbeAtreet and safety were down three dark fllght? of stairs."
"What did she do, daddy?".cried Evelyn.
"She did a brave deed. 8be selxed her ?lck brother Jacob and lugged hiu>
down to the street; then ahe went back and carried the baby safely down;
then she turned in the Are alarm without sending to the bread stall for her
mother. But while she was doing all this guess what four-year-old Becky had
been up to."
"Did ahe cry?" Evelyn guessed.
"Not Becky!" said daddy. "8be had been putting the lire out with her bot
tle of milk! When Sarah went back to get Becky the lire was only steaming.
Meanwhile a neighbor had fetched the mother. "Eight good cents wasted!"
:rlcd the mother, gaping at the white stream on the floor ana giving poor.
Becky a good spanking. Of course Sarah got all the praise, but she didn't pour
milk on the Are, did she?"
"N???!" shouted Jack and Evelyn.
"And tbbMa what Becky keeps saying while Baby Eva keeps bawling for
her spilled milk: 'Becky prt out the fire! Onme lota of mans and womans with
buckcis of water, which they wanted should put the fire out. Came engine*
and mode toots, and they wanted they should nut the Are oat. But Becky she
put the Are nut with milk.' TIiIh Is what ahe still tells the neighbors," daddy
"I Just love Becky!" cried Kvelyn, with a good nlglit kiss.
"But It was Sarab wfcn was brave." said Jack.
"Becky was Jm;t ns brave. l**Ules being a baby," daddy added.
