Only too many, for want of timely help, fell back again into crime, and sink deeper and deeper in degrada tion. To stay this ,/minoua waste of womanhood is the object of the Ho'lo way Discharged Prisoners' Aid Society. Its president is the Lord Mayor, and Its vice-presidents the Prison Visiting Com mittee of Justices of the Peace. Those •facts suffice to prove that its work is' no mere idle sentimentality.

Equally unexpected was the.-.roply.of the im penitent sinner to whom the priest told tho frightful story of a woman in tho parishhav lng been-burned to. death by tho candlo: sot ting Are to her clothes which, when drunk, she eudeavorcd to blow out. ' " "That'll be a lesson to me;" was tho.reply. "I'll nlvver blow . a candlo out again the longesht day I live." ; .
