What is the greatest happiness
for woman? "To keep house,
wash dishes, sweep and cook for
the man you love, constitutes a
woman's greatest happiness,"
says Chicago's -'jnos't beautiful
newly wed working girl." She
might have added "and caring for
the baby." To forget the baby is
to forget the best of it all. But
how many girls of today are of
this opinion, and how many are
there that are trained and pre
pared for such joy when the one
man arrives? It's old-fashioned
to do such things. Mother did
them and her mother before her;
and many a pert young miss of
this age acts as if this were a
good reason why she should give
them the go-by. Young people
now-a-days think they must have
a fine home and a hired girl, or
we would say, "a maid," before
they can think of marrying.
The high cost of living is a
bugbear that is making bachelors
of the young men and old maids
(again we stand corrected, and
revise to "bachelor girls"), and
incidentally not helping the
social evil reform. Over 5,000,
000 men over the age of 30 are
living in single blessedness in
this country, and of course as
many more women are left to
tight the battles of life alone. If
this is an undesirable, state of
affairs, what is the remedy? We
believe it is "in the getting back to
old principles in the training of
both boys' and girls. Boys think
that straight forward work with
the hands, useful work for which
thoTe is a crying need, and a
wholesome respect for woman
hood; girls to be good house
wives and not ashamed of a good
husband who toils honestly, and
to do her full share toward mak
ing the home, even as her mother
dfd and her mother's mother be
fore her, and to care for the
baby. Don't forget the baby.
While a preacher's wife. may
not have a college degree, she
knows about all there is to know
about economies.
While installation of dielo
- grabs may check profanity at
polling places, the right of
electors to cuss after an election
cannot be constitutionally derived
or abandoned.
A woman in Pittsburg attend
ed Billy Sunday's revival meeting.
She became jealous of her hus
band and so, in order to save his
soul, tdie shot and killed him.
She will use his life insurance to
secure the service of a lawyer to
save her from the scaffold, and
so we go.
The boom for Senator Banning
has gone glimmering among the
things that were. Bill has been
up to Lincoln and denied the
charge. That settles the busi
ness. But he maintains that
(Jovernor Morehead has made a
most excellent chief executive,
and wants him to run again. But
the governor slands for congress,
and will get the nomination and
be elected.
Nothing riles Speaker Champ
Clark so greatly as the persistent
cry that the public men of the
present day are corrupt. The
peoples' representatives in
Washington, he said, were
"honest, conscientious servants."
Ninety-five per cent of the men
sent to congress, he added, leave
poorer than they come, although
they could acquire fortunes by
stooping to dishonesty.
A woman who lias a che-ild
and doesn't know where it is, is
hardly the proper person to bring
action against any man. And it
also seems strange that three
politicians were handy and caniej
into the room just as the alleged
assault occurred.
While the Journal hopes the
new president of the Commercial
club will prove as active in the
interests of the city as the retir
ing president, it will be a hard
matlen to do so. The retiring
president has proved an inces
sant worker for l'lattsmouth and
her interests and a great hustler,
and the people of the city owe
Henry Schneider much more than
a debt of gratitude.
One legislative candidate has
already filed his application with
the secretary of state to have his
name placed on the primary
ticket J. F. Sturm of Nehawka,
as state senator for Otoe and
Cass counties. Senator Barlling,
of the past two sessions, who
had much to do with the passing
of the Sunday base ball bill, will
not be a candidate. Grand Is
land Independent.
The ollice of building inspector
should be created for IMatts-
mouth, whose duty it would be to
inspect the construction of new-
buildings and also old ones. He
should be paid a good salary, and
to a great extent should under
stand plumbing and furnace
pipes and also electricity wir
ings. Such a man would prove a
great saving to the property
owners. A great deal of the elec
tric wiring done in this city is
placed by incompetents.
A glance across history, an
cient and modern, leads one to
believe that the disturbers have
attracted the most attention, and
been embalmed In songs more
frequently than their useful
neighbors, who sawed wood
while the sun shone. And if you
doubt that the same tendency
holds good today, you have an
abiding failh in human nature
which we should hate to shatter.
Not that we haven't faith, also,
in the justly celebrated human
race, but it isn't largely based
on those who gad about telling
how much they arc going to do to
hold in its forward march down
the ringing grooves of change.
Change is correct, so far as they
are concerned, and most of them
want it in bunches.
Spain, according to a Spanish
paper which may not know what
it is talking about, has not for
gotten the Spanish-American
war. That makes it mutual, we
should say, for: neither has
America. This home of the
brave, by that brief struggle, ac
quired the Phillipine islands and
fifty-seven varielres of trouble in
that direction, not to mention
the strain involved by frequent
intervention in Cuba, which is
free, as we said it should be in
several different Languages,
while engaged in remembering
the Maine. That is one trouble
with Cuba; its tendency is to be
too flee, particularly with fire
arms and politics. Then there
has followed the necessary in
creases in army and navy, and
the chance of complications in
the far east, which wouldn't have
resulted but for that brief un
pleasantness with Spain. Yes,
America remembers, mid is also
curious to know what Spain s
sore about.

farmer named Dojph Hickman
The old man got religion. One
of his sons, Noah, who is subject

the Holy Hollers held a clinic on

Instead of a Judgment of eternal tor-

judgment, or sentence, of death. We
agree to the righteousness of that ver-
diet, or judgment. God had a right to
demand of His creature the obedience
he was able to render. He had a per-
fect right to destroy him in death

As a result we have good hope in His
judgments; for He who once Judged
us worthy of death has with equal
Justice redeemed us and granted us
the opportunity of eternal life through
the resurrection.
It was another part of the Divine
Judgment against our race that, in-
stead of the death penalty's coming in
stantly upon Adam and Eve. it came
gradually, that through the processes
of gradual dying they might the better
learn the lesson of "the exceeding sin-
fulness of sin." to the intent that,
when granted the new trial secured by
the merit of Christ's sacrifice, they
misht profit by it the more. The same
principle applies to all of Adams pos
terity. "The whole creation groaneth
and travalletu in pain togetner untn
now, waiting ior ine mannesui-
tion of the sons of God." (Romans
8:22. 19.) They are waiting for the
establishment -of Christ's Millennial

This is God's provision for the world
in general! What God did for Natural
Israel during the Jewish Age. and
Israel since Pentecost, in this Gospel
Age, are matters separate and apart
from His general dealing with man-
kind. The natural and the Spiritual
Seed of Abraham are exceptions to the
rule. Natural Israel under the Law
Covenant and Spiritual Israel under
the Abrahamlc covenant have been
granted special privileges and blessings
not granted to tlie world in general.

"God Will Judge His People."
So far as the world is concerned, it
has been under the one i;cneral sen
tence of Divine Justice, "Dying, thou
shalt die." Rut Natural and Spiritual
Israel have been dealt with as freed
from the original sentence and on trial
for life or death afresh under God's
Judgments, or disciplines. Thus it is
written, "Jehovah will Judge Ills peo
ple." Not all under these Judgments
have understood them; not all were In
the condition of heart to receive their
"The secret of the Lord Is with them
that fear Ilim; and He will show them

during the Jewish Ape, Israel often

idolatry, and failed to see their spe-
ial privileges nnd relationship to God
