to make wealth tliu prislonitnutlnn tett of

could not. if they so ile-ilnnl, secure ndnils-

Hint which requires tun mills In every cent
nnd ton dimes In every ilollnr. A reform is
proiKwod iih likuly to Imi conducive to tlm
pleasure and prollt ot nil concerned. It is to
mnko respectability the test, with dim regard,
of course, to mental fitness. Could such n
reform bo Inaugurated, who mil say thnt It
would not provo n blessing to nil! No trim
Amrricmi can doubt that it would. It
would bo a social reform entirely In hiirinoiiy

That such n reform would be productive of
great good to all classes needs no deep argu
ment to provo. lly 1 oasou of its very ex
cluslveuess society's tint circles nro losing
their brightest charms ami mutt In time
lapse into insipidity. The modern dude, so
utterly out ot tuuo with everything Ameri
can except bis feminine consort In the social
scale, is a product ot our present social sys
tem, lie Is probably the horrible ezamplo
that has aroutod tho American pooplo to a
cbntemplatlon ot the social aituatiou. If ao,
he has not boen evolved In vain. It may
sound harsh to say that the best heads in
ultra-exclusive social circles have concluded
that in order to secure re-iiiforcemeiit of
brains, now elements must bo Injected into
their ranks, but it is true thnt such n situa
tion confronts them. The brain ot the mod
ern creation ot social excluslveuess has be
come "nlunllled," and needs rejuvenation.
There Is an equally potent consideration on
tho other side. All respoctublo pooplo would
welcomo more general recognition In what
may be known as Io;al social circles, and the
hone ot teeming It only through strict io-
tpectabllity would encourage right living.
There would be Immeasurably tower outcasts
were right-living euro to wiu social recogni
tion. The inducements to gain positions of
affluence would not be so apt to tempt to slu
lu its various forms uud degrees, mid social
rottenness in shining raiment could not sneer
at respectability In plain attire. Men would
not so readily sell tlulr integrity, aud women
their honor, tor gold, were integrity and
honor the hailing signs ot society rather than
gold. Tho social leaders who would attempt
such a leform are philanthropists ot the
most pronounced degree, and when they
have Inaugurated it, it they may ever hope
to do so much good, will have done more to
better humaulty than all other elements of
the social fabric will have. done. It Is to be
regretted that many ot those. Indies and gen
tlemen who aspire to prominence as mission
ai let for the christianizing ot the world not
only recognise but practice aud encourage
aristocratic lleas of social excluslveuess. and

The supreme court has recently reatllrnied
the opinion that any dog running at large
without a collar bearing thereupou the name
of Its owner can be killed "without fear or
compunction, as no action can be maintained
for the killing, and that any dog found upon
a public road, no one having control ot hi in
being near, Is running at largo. This is law
that is acceptable to everyone, unless it be to
the owners of curs, who are indeed legion.
Another section of the same syllabus some
what ambiguously provides; , ,
A dog that "persistently assails people psss
Ing along a public road In a threatening man
ner Is a nuisance and may be killed by any
peison ao assailed.
One would think that If a person pertltt lu
passlugalongapublloroad In a threatening
manner, auy dog which has the courage has
a right to assail them, but that no dog with
good canine instincts will do so. People who
pass along public roads In a threatening
manner are none too good to be assailed by
dog. The supreme court probably Intended
to say that any dog which persistly assails.
In a threatening manner, people passing
along a publio road, is a nuisance and may be
killed by the person assailed. This Is another
