This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1911 edition. Excerpt: ...pp. Cloth, $1.50. Chicago: The Reilly & Britton Company. 1911.

Marriage, Race Suicide, Cost of the Child, Education. Parental Mistakes, Home, Why Boys Go Wrong, Juvenile Crimes, External Remedial Efforts, Child Labor, Socialism, and The Church, showing that he has considered his topic from nearly all possible points of view.
