Our Penal Code.
The legislature should take steps for
the reformation ot our penal code. The
main body of it was enacied in 1833,
and for fifty odd years the most numer
ous, perplexing and incongruous
amendments have been tacked on.
When the other laws of the state were
codified in 1S60, the criminal laws un
derwent no revision whatever. The
old code of 1833 was simply inserted
bodily, numbered into sections,corres
ponding to the original paragraphs.
ifL'he original code of ’33, the acts rela
tive to criminal matters passed since,
and the decisions of the Supreme court
on code and acts from a heterogeneous
mass, without order, precision or sys
tem. The guilty sometimes escape;
the innocent are not infrequently con
victed; penalties are, in many cases,
grossly disproportionate to offense,
and the expense of the administration
of the system is entirely too great.
To maliciously put out a man’s eye
or to bite off his nose is simply a mis
demeanor, punishable only by fine or
chain gang; to steal a bale of cotton
is a felony, punishable by from one to
five years in the penitentiary. A
sharper who cheats you out of 810,000
is punishaDle only as for a misdemean
or, while a collector who embezzles 10
cents, is a felon who may be sent to
the penitentiary for five years. He
who attempts to ravish may get off
with one year in the penitentiary,while
he who steals a mule may go for four.
It is as great a crime to break into the
hen house or smokery adjacent to your
dwelling with intent to steal, as it is to
break into your dwelling itself with
intent to kill.
To conyict a swindler, however co
lossal, costs about $40, and if he gods
to the chain gang, the county gets the
benefit of his labor. To convict the
butler who embezzles a spoon, costs
you §130, and his labor goes to benefit
the penitentiary lessees, while the tax
payers of the county foot the hill.
The entire penal code needs revision
both on its legal and economic sides.

My disease (psoriasis) first broke out on my

most covering my face. It ran Into my eyes,
and the physician was afraid I would lose my
eyesight altogether. It spread all over my head,
ami my hair foil out, until I was entirely bald-

shoulders, until my arms were just one sore. It
covered my entiro body, my face, bead, and
