[From the We.tern Jurist.1
"This is a most excellent and practical treatise on the cause of crime.
It is by the Hlon. Simeon Nash, who was for a long time upon the Bench
in Ohio, and ,,hose attention was called to the subject by the frequent oc-
casion he had, during his services on the Bench, to pass sentence upon
boys found guilty of crimes. He discusses the subject in a plain, straight-

that the cause of crime is intimately and practically connected with family
government, or, rather, the want of it. . . . The work will be found

"There is common sense and wisdom enough in 'CRIME AND THE FAM-
nLy' to furnish a score of -olumes of average weight. .. . This book

"Judge Nash treats this important subject in a calm, sensible way, in-

unhesitatingly recommend this work to parents and others."
