Two Cases Atrainst Fallen Wcnuen.
There was a very sad scene in
the court house last Monday. A
fallen woman, taken for her evil
doinr. was hvoiu'lit from her
iivjuie in me nnniu iu enswei
for her crime, committed with a
man of another race. On the
woman's face was written her
character. I hat woman had onco
i i , i
been a pure and virtuous girl,
but from her face was gone every
mark ot teauty, every trace ol
feminine loveliness and grace,
A fallen woman! Her cheeks
and lips bearing the impress of
her sin, her very soul lust-scarred.
Has earth a picture more
pitiable than a woman fallen
from angelic heights of purtty,
virt ue and all that makes woman
hood lovely and beautiful ? Poor,
sinful woman, she is justly made
to suffer before the tribunal of
justice for her crimes.
Hearing the charges against
the woman of whom we write, we
went in imagination to another
court. An unveiled, disheveled,
terror-stricken adulteress, fresh
from the agony of detection, wTas
dragged by a mob into tho holy
temple and was set before the
Judge. There flagrant guilt and
stainless purity met. There aw
ful crime and perfect mercy were
brought face to face. The mob
