fEW YORK.—Tears nre an plen-
tiful In the children's court as
the ticks of the white-faced
clock that looks at Justice
Hoyt from the opposite wall.
The Justice Is a sympathetic man.
Ten minutes In his court when he Is
trying children's rase* will Impress
thlB fact on any one, except, perhaps,
some parent who comes before him un-
der tbe Influence of liquor. It must
be hard on a sympathetic man. Ten
thousand cases a year are adjudicated
In Manhattan. Probably 9,000 of these
are brought by the Society for the Pre-
vention of Cruelty to Children.
Cases of grand larceny, highway rob-
bery, burglary and petit larceny are de-
cided by him every few minutes. He
asks Michael why he has been absent
from school 68 days since October 1;
from a nine-year-old negro girl he
tries to ascertain the real Influence
at work which renders her Incorrigible
from the point of view of her aunt,
and makes her cry out that she wants
to go back to her home in No'f Car'-
An Intoxicated father, holding a
baby In his lap, blubbers about how
much he desires to reform, so as to be
permitted to care for the three-year-
old girl, whose mother Is on the Is-
land, your honor, for drunkenness.
A German woman, with three chil-
dren, four, six and eight years old,
"It would really be a help to the
mother If the boy was sent away," In-
terjected the agent of tbe charitable
Mother Still Had Faith.
"Oh, your honor, please don't believe
It, your honor," sobbed the mother.
"Don't send him away. I don't care
what he's done, bless you, sir."
The boy was dry eyed. Hechangrd
to the left foot, seeming bored by his
the support hitherto supplied by his
right. The Judge said there was really
no reason why he should not give such
an imperturbable fellow another op-
portunity, that, apparently, he could
be depended on to do no better than
he had always done.
The mother wrung her hands and
repeated: "I don't care what he's done,
bless you, Judge," oblivious to the le-
gal aspects of the case.
And JuBtlce Hoyt found a way to
give him another chance. He paroled
the boy for a month. The mother
would have kissed reverently the Jus-
tice's silk hat or walking stick, but
neither was available. She tried to
awaken something that she believed
was within the boy. Hut her petting
ways as she accompanied him out of
the court room did not succeed In
beautifying his features with even a
hint of an appreciative smile.
A father had a two-year-old daugh-
ter In his lap. She was dressed In
blue. He bad Iron gray balr and was
probably fifty-five years old. He jog-
gled the baby up and down on his
right knee. The baby cooed, and when
It looked at the Judge for the first
time laughed and then Immediately be-
came absorbed In pursuit of Its fa-
ther's right ear.
There appeared alBo a fifteen-year-
old girl, the man's other daughter. She
stood before the Judge, dressed In
black, from her French heels to her
machine-made ostrich plume. The
judge was informed that, although the
fifteen-year-old girl a short time ago
had a chance from his honor to reform
and stay at home, she had not availed
herself of it Bad company appealed
more to her.
"The girl Is hopeless, your honor,"
said a woman Investigator. "You

Nine-year-old highwaymen stand be-
fore the Judge and cry, their bravado
gone. A slxty-two-pound burglar, not
four feet high, says he took the $40

home and gave It to a man who told
him to do It, and himself got only 25
cents of the swag. He, too, cries
when the judge asks him why he
The judge Is so kind. He leans
over until he Is so close to the small
culprit that only the culprit can, may-
be, hear all that Is said. It Is, you
know, a matter between man and man.
The boy has no handkerchief, and
uses his coat sleeves Impartially.
The Judge is trying to see a way out.
He wants to give the heaving, under-
fed burglar another chance. The bur-
glar would rather have another
chance than 11,000,000. You can tell
by the way he Bobs when the Judge
asks him If he will forsake a life of
crime and study his A, B, C's.

ways staying away from home until

before Judge Hoyt, charged with hav-
ing broken the terms of his parole.
His mother, a widow, neatly dressed,
sat In a chair close by. It was sug-
gested by an agent of one of the char-
ltahle organisations that the boy
should not have another chance.
"Nothing Is being done for you,"
said Justice Hoyt to the mother. "The
boy does not help you In any way, and
I understand you have a pretty hard
time of It."
The mother began to cry.

mother has Just died, no more than a
week ago, and even then this girl
wouldn't go home, even for a day."
The father, who was now holding
the baby ou his left knee, apparently
In the hope that such a change in posi-
tion would direct the tot's attention
to something else than his right ear,
and painfully conscious that his ef-
forts had failed, asked the judge
please not to be hard on her.
"Why won't you stay home?" askod
Justice Hoyt of the girl In black.
"Boo-hoo-hoo-ooo-oh, Judge, j-J-J
judge," responded the girl, flaunting
a starched handkerchief with a deep
black border, and the Impression pre-
dominated that It had been bought for
"She has told me, your honor, that
Bhe doesn't love her father. She
won't stay home, Judge," said the
matron, "to help her father take care
of this llttli baby here."
"Don't send her up. Judge," pleaded
the man with the Iron gray hair.
"Goo ooo-ooo-goo-papa!" again Com-
mented the baby dressed In blue, al-
ternately digging Its fist Into the fa-
ther's cheek and patting It.
"I think I ought to Bend this girl
away," said the Judge.
Tears coursed down the father's

after thlB little child for you," the
Judge suggested, kindly.
"I done that, Judge, I done that,"
the man replied, brokenly.
"What have you done?" Inquired the

The baby In his lap had Just found
Its father's spectacles. They were on
his nose, which seemed to strike her
as a funny place for spectacles to be.
The right ear Immediately lost Its
power to attract.
The girl In black continued to cry
piercingly. The Judge decided to
give her another chance. One felt
sure It was not the black border that
influenced him, and It could scarcely
be that the Btagey sobs had touched
him, although the body of the girl
shook beneath the show girl hat
Youthful Stone Throwers.
A policeman testified that the three
boys next at the bar had done some
pretty fair execution with stones in
the middle of a busy thoroughfare.
According to the officer It would be
hard to determine which one of the
boys was the best shot.
Tom was asked to tell the court
how It happened. He said:
"I waz standln' In de street, when
Eddie Bald cheesit, here comes de cop,
an' I didn't run 'cause I hadn't done
nothln', an' then I ast Eddie why
Georgle waz arrested an' he said
'cause he waz throwln' stones."
"Of course you didn't throw any
stones yourself. Tom," the Judge re-
"No. sir; I waz Btandln' In de street
when Eddie said cheesit, here comes
de cop an'—"
"Now, Tom," Bald the Judge In a
confidential tone, "honest Injun, didn't
you throw stones the same as
"No, sir, I wuz standln' In de street
when Eddie said cheesit, here comes
There was some more testimony by
the policeman and Georgle was fined
$1, a fact which he noted by sob-
"I c-c-c-can't p-p-pay a d-d-dollar
fine." So his mother paid It for him.
Joseph had been up before for steal-
ing, and now had robbed his employer
of a fountain pen and some pocket
"House of Refuge," decided Justice
Hoyt, after telling Joseph that he and
the boy "had had this all out last
time." The mother could not find
any words. She threw her arms
around the lad when he stepped oft
the platform and wept as mothers
One Mother Hardens Heart.
"I wish him committed, your hon-
or," declared an Irishwoman, with a
wooden face, who had accompanied
her son to the bar of justice. The
boy was charged with being a truant
"He's nothln' extra, your honor," re-
plied the woman In response to Jus-
tice Hoyt's Inquiry as to his habits.
"He plays truant your honor; his fa-

cinct, your honor. I wish him com-

who took that attitude.

Carrsville Lady Says She Laid
Awake At Night Because
of Her Troubles.
Carrsville, Ky.—Mrs. P. E. Cossey,
of this town, says: "I had been af-
flicted for nearly six years with wom-
anly troubles, and would suffer so
much, every month!
It would take a book to tell what
I have suffered In that time.
I got so I could not sleep at night,
from nervousness. I had four differ-
ent doctors to treat me, but they
could not help.
When I took Cardui, it relieved me
at once. I can't praise it enough.
I hardly know how to tell you what
Cardui has done for me. I have tak-
en about seven bottles, and nothing
else I ever took gave me such relief.
All my friends know how bad I
was, and how Cardui has helped me
In many different ways."
Cardui Is made from purely vege-
table ingredients, which act particu-
larly on the delicate womanly system,
building up health and strength where
It is most needed.
During the past 50 years It has
helped thousands of ladles, afflicted
with just such troubles as those from
which Mrs. Cossey suffered.
It is therefore a remedy that you
can feel confidence in. Its merit is
guaranteed by years of success.
Don't experiment Take Cardui.

When to Call the Doctor.
When to summon the doctor Is a
point which has probably puzzled most
people at one time or another, but in
the case of throat and intestinal
troubles there should be no uncertain-
ty, says a medical authority. The doc-
tor should be summoned at once, for
the sore throat may l>e diphtheria, and
the intestinal symptoms may mean
peritonitis, appendicitis or any one of
a dozen complications of serious char-
acter. Valuable time and the golden
opportunity may 'be wasted by wait-
ing for symptoms that are severe
enough to Justify calling the doctor.

I want to tell you that change was the
