THE CONVICT AND HIS FAMILY.
AX advanced step in legislation along the
lines of enlightened criminology was
!• taken when the committee on j>enal in
atitMio;;- of the Kansas house reported favor
*y> a 11 giving to the families of convicts the
wairi- actualh earned by the prisoners. This
mav not be the ideal solution of the problem
arising from the summary withdrawal from a
family of its main support when the bread win
ner is locked up in a prison cell, but it is the
best yet offered. The serious nature of the
problem has long been recognized and trim
inologists have earnestly sought some equit-
able way of solving it.
A man is put into the penitentiary tor only
one reason and that is, he has violated the law
protecting the rights of society, through his
act toward the individual wronged, l'here are
eorallary considerations involved; the man is
locked iip not solely for punishment, for the
reformative feature of punishment is becoming
more and more generally recognized. But so
long as a man does not wrong the community
through the individual he will never unless
the court or jury errs—go to the penitentiary.
Thus far no effective method has been devised
of punishing only the man who is primarily
guilt v, if he has n family. But the same society
which takes away the support from the inno
cent family certainly owes something to the
family thus punished for no offense of it> own.
The theory of the Kansas bill recognizes this
eqnitv of the family.
Manv a worthies* and lazy man is permit
ted to neglect his family so long as he does
not commit anv overt offense. But so soon as
he doe- he is locked up. and then his idleness
ends. He is compelled to labor, and labor hard
and steadily. It is onlv just that his family
should have the benefit of this compulsory

out that the battle of Palmito Ranch
was fought on the spot where nineteen years
earlier General Taylor with 2,000 American
troops defeated fi Mexican army of 6,000 under
Arista, at Palo Alto, the opening conflict of
the Mexican war.
Although the coincidence that the opening
battle of the Mexican war and the closing en-
counter of the Civil war were fought on the
same spot has no significance, the fact in itself
is memorable, and in time, as Mr. Sheppard
suggests, may be commemorated by a suitable
monument.—New York World.

How Boston ever came to adopt a charter

Efforts will oe made to secure the
assistance of the attorney general of
the United States in having the
case advanced on the docket of the
supreme court, because of the fact
that the validity of the enabling act,
which is the only point involved in
the appeal, also affects conditions in
several other states, including New
Mexico and Arizona, where a simi-
lar restriction to that imposed on
Oklahoma was made in the enabling
act. Those two states had completed

You Ha vc to Feed
Why not buy the best
and Cheapest Feed?
PROTEIN is the most valuable element contained
in Animal foods.
COTTON SEED MEAL contains more PROTEIN
than any other known feed stuff.
Bulletin No. 10 of the Oklahoma Board of Agricul-
ture gives OUR COTTON MEAL 43.01 per cent PRO-
TEIN and 8.75 FAT, a total of 51.76 per cent of flesh and
fat producing properties.
From the same analysis we find it would take—
460 LBS. No. 1 corn and oat chops to equal 100 lbs
of Cotton Soed Meal in feeding value.
360 LBS. clean, coarse wheat bran to equal 100 lbs of
Cotton Seed Meal in feeding value.
