Amerlcau Lawlessness. ' A wealthy German recently was bemoaning be-moaning the want of respect for law which he said was everywhere apparent in -this country. How different it all . was m Germany! He told a story to enforce the point of his remarks. As a lad in Berlin he was apprentice to a tailor. One of his duties was to go to the apartments of the "young bloods" of Berlin every week or two, so that he might fetch their trousers to the tailor's tail-or's shop. There he, with other of the apprentices, searched the linings for coins which they well knew would be there, for they had deftly made openings open-ings in the pockets through which they would fall. There was, a quarrel, and exposure came. Then followed prosecution, prose-cution, and the imprisonment of two of the apprentices. Well, it effectually stopped the pilfering; the apprentices eewed up all the holes, and the "young bloods'' never had any of their coins stolen afterward. If any were found in the trousers they were returned. Here, this Wealthy German said, no amount of imprisonment has tho least effect in stopping peculation.
