Crime is published to the world uot merely for seusation ani to ranke the paper sell, but that it may be the ineans of restraining others from its commission. No man, however iinmoral or brutal he may be, is anxious to appear in the public prints as au enemy to society.

While it thus aids the guilty his crime becomeB a warniug to others Thus the publication of criminal records, if properly viewed, Bhould be, and no doubt is, a Messing to the public. Crime would be more frequent were it not branded ; and although the law does this, crime would still lose some of its sting in the soul of the ciiimnal could it be committed in secret and without the knowledgo of the people in general.
