The escape of Charles Clark, alias Charles Stetson, alias Red Charley, and alias several other titles, from the Ohio State prison some years ago, was a fair sample of the genius and desperation of a professional crook who had been "settled"' for seven or eight years for robbery. Prom the moment Clark entered the [or rison he began making mental notes future use. The number of doors, the location of the guards, the defens­ es of various windows, the lay of the sewers, the thickness of the walls— every point was noted and stored...

Two new eases have been added with­ in a few weeks to the hundreds already on record, in which the inordinate use of the cigarette has been chargcd with producing fatal results. Whether the charge is well founded, in the strictest sense of the phrase, is a question on which doctors and experts must (litter, but there is no disputing the fact that if the appetite for the cigarette had been strangled in these cases, life would certainly have been prolonged. The late Mr. C. F.
