As time rolls on it seems to
become more and more common
to hear of bank failures. It is
hard to picture the distress that
follows the failure of a large
banking concern which had pre
viously enjoyed the confidence of
thousands of people. Not alone
does the bank fail, but the clos
ing of its doors causes bankrupt
Do conditions make criminals?
The readv answer would be
'yes," but this does not fully
dismiss the subject. - Environ

effect on different people in dif
ferent ways. Certain conditions

The last failure Xf this char

is that of the Milwaukee-Avenue
State Bank, of Chicago.

The failure of this bank can be
attributed to but one man, and

In many cases we oppose capi
tal punishment, but in some re
spects it seems that we could
learn from the heathen. it is
said that there has not been a
bank failure in China for a per
iod of 400 years as the result of
an emperial edict demanding
that the heads of bursted bank
officials be cut off,
This plan has worked admir
ably in the "Celestial" land;
why might not a similar scheme
for this country be a good thing?
No banker would lose his head
unless he wilfully took a chance
on it there is nothing to force
him to rob his depositors
far more readily than pthers.
It does not necessarily follow
that a person reared in a den of
iniquity will be wholly bad.
There are exceptions, and we
find now and then a saint among
sinners. On the other hand, we
may go into the best homes of
the land and discover that they,
too, have bred criminals. It
that the taint of
criminality belongs not to any
particular class. We find the
greatest number of criminals
come from the slums, but not the
accomplished and educated scour
drel. He is the product of a bet
ter atmosphere. x
Therefore, to credit too much
to environment when seeking
nals come may be in error. Look
at it as one may, it is hard to ig
nore the law of heredity. "Like
beget like" is about as near the
truth as one can get in a prob
lem of this nature, but the above
saw is not always reliable, not
