The Hoosier Cabinet saves miles of steps by put
ting everything in ONE SPOT. Your table is the
center of all your kitchen work. Everything you take
to your stove, to your sink, to your dining table, first
goes onto your kitchen table. Everything you bring
from your pantry, refrigerator, cupboard and cellar,
goes onto your table.

these things and put them back again, your kitchen

what a wonderful labor saver a Hoosier Cabinet
would be to you. Picture having one piece of furni

your flour bin, your bread and cake box with your
kitchen table, keep all your pots and pans in one

We hope Lincoln is fairly depopulated during the three big
days "of the Ak-Sar-Ben festivities by reason of everybody going
to Omaha. It will be a trip worth while. Omaha pulls off the
most magnificent parades ever seen in this or any other country.
There is nothing like Ak-Sar-Ben, nor anywhere near its equal,
on earth. We wish Lincoln had something approaching it. But
we are mighty proud that it is an institution promoted by a Ne
braska city. Let every Lincolnite who can take in the Ak-Sar-Ben
parades and let every one of them go up with a big badge
advertising the fact that the wearer is from Lincoln, Nebraska. v
THE HORSE EPIDEMIC.
If it is really spinal meningitis that is killing off the horses in
such appalling numbers, then it is not to be wondered at that veter
inarians are unable to stop it. Physicians have not yet found a
method of curing spinal meningitis in the human family. Whatever
the equine disease may be there is every warrant for sparing neither
expense nor trouble in trying to locate and remove the cause. Some
believe it to be caused by the bite of an insect; others believe it to
be caused by a fungus growth on the feed. Isolation, thorough dis
infection and a change of diet should be carefully tried.
The Cedar Rapids, la., Tribune, edited by our old friend, R.
Grant Stewart, says that of over 200 labor papers coming to his
desk, all but ten are enthusiastic for Roosevelt ,and six of the ten
for Debs. For the life of us we can not understand how any pub
lisher of a paper advocating union labor can support Roosevelt as
a labor publication. We call to mind the case of the bookbinders in
the government printing office. We can not forget how Teddy
sought to prejudice the case of Moyer, Haywood and Pettibone with
his famous "undesirable citizens" letter. We recall Teddy's asser
tion that the "drunken, rioting cowboys of the plains were "much
better fellows and better companions than the average mechanics in
our larger cities." We haven't forgotten his advocacy of the spiked
club for policemen.
Admitting that Woodrow Wilson has misjudged organized labor
in the past, and been guilty of saying things that were not true, yet
we point to the fact that under Governor Wilson's administration of
affairs in New Jersey labor got a lot of good laws enacted among
them a workingman's compensation act.' What did the workers of
New York get while Roosevelt was governor of that state! What
did they get while Roosevelt was president? .Will jMaupin's Weekly,
which is not a "labor paper," has been offered 7 cents a line to
print a lot of anti-Wilson stuff, editorially if possible, as plain read
ing matter otherwise. It is the stuff that a lot of "labor papers"
are running. It is boosting Roosevelt and we are mighty sure that
the men who carry- cards in trades unions are not putting up the
money. Who, then, is putting it up? We don t know, but we do
know that George W. Perkins, a factor in the union-hating steel
trust, and Medill McCormick, a factor in the union-hating harvester
trust, are almighty close to Theodore Roosevelt.

FOURTEENTH AND O STREETS
To date John H. Morehead has conducted his campaign on a
high plane. He has taken the voters into his confidence and told
them plainly what he stands for. Billingsgate, obscene abuse and
profane ejaculations he has left entirely to his opponent. The editor
of this newspaper has had the pleasure of knowing every Nebraska
governor since John M. Thayer. He has heard : more profanity,
obscenity and billingsgate during the last eighteen months of the
present regime than he heard during all the years of Thayer, Holr
comb, Crounse, Sheldon, Poynter and Shallenberger. And if he
remembers rightly none of the above named gentlemen posed as
moral preceptors and exemplars of the righteous life.
We have known Henry C. Richmond ever since he first "lit" in
Nebraska some twenty-five years, ago. He drifted into Red Cloud,
homeless and penniless and hungry just as, we have drifted into
more than one town in the years gone by. He got a job as "devil"
in the office of a Red Cloud newspapre under A. C. Hosmer, and he
made good. Since the,n he has been a Nebraskan. He developed into
a good newspaper man, and still better, into a genial, lovable man.
He is a dynamo of human energy, and he takes pride in doing well
everything he undertakes. He is the democratic candidate for
auditor of public acounts, and he deserves to be elected because he is
capable and square. He admits that he will have to learn a lot
about the insurance business if elected, but you may be sure that
while he is learning it he will not forget that-the people have
some rights that insurance companies and combinations will have
to respect. He never was connected with any insurance company,
either as agent or lobbyist, but having served as chief clerk of the
legislature he knows quite a few insurance lobbyists and can, and
will, keep his eye on them. , This newspaper wants to see Richmond
elected, not because he is a democrat, but because he is capable,
energetic, and a fellow newspaper man. And that's enough for us.

The Men and Religion Forward Movement ccommittee is plan
ning a month of "union revival" or "union evangelistic" work in
Lincoln during January. We are opposed to it, and we are willing
to give our reasons. We don't take much stock in the average travel
ing evangelist. We pay our local ministers from $750 to $1,500 a
year," and make them work overtime to get their money. Along
comes a traveling evangelist who gets more per month than the
eanest, hardworking local minister gets in a year. Then the travel
ing evangelist pockets his big fee and hikes to pastures new, leaving
the local preachers to take up the big load. These union meetings
doubtless produce some good results, but our experience is that, the
"aftermath" is not worth the price. It is a month 'of excitement,
mixed with opportunities for young fellows and their girls to make
dates; it is expensive, and the money could better be used in wel
fare work among people who need it during that season of the year.
We never did take much stock in these '"revival" meetings, and
none at all where a professional revivalist is imported at an expense
of thousands of dollars to work up a feverish excitement over some
thing that should be decided calmly and without hysterics. The
thousands that such a "union meeting" would cost would be better
spent in other directions.

The other evening, we had occasion to visit a little while with a
couple of pupils in the public schools. They were studying geogra
phy, and they were trying to find out what part of Europe is the
oldest, what influence the plains of Europe have upon the climate.
and a lot. of other fool things. We told them all we knew about
Europe which was little enough and then proceeded to ask them
a few things about Nebraska. Those two Nebraska school children
knew less about their own state than we know about Europe. Aside
from "bounding the state" and naming a couple of rivers and two
or three cites, they were as ignorant of Nebraska as a Hottentot.
Nebraska public schools are fooling away a lot of time on things
that are not worth while.
