OMNIPOTENCY OF YOUTH (?)
After reading an article in > the Ma
sonic Voice Review under the signa
ture of D. Frank Peffley, with the
head line. “Word to Young Men.” i
cannot refrain from asking you to
publish the following: '
"Remember, son. that the world is
older than you are by several years”
says a writer in Algeria. “That thou*
ands of years it has been so full of
smarter and better young men than
yourself that their feet stuck out of
the dormer windows: that when they
died the Old Globe went wagging on.
and not one man in ten million went
to the funeral or even heard of the
death. Be as smart as you can of
course, know as much as you car.
without blowing the packing out of
your cylinder heads: shed the ligh,
of your wisdom abroad in the world
but don't imagine a thing is so simri’t
because you say it is. Don't be too
sorry for our father because he know*
so much less than you do.
“The World has great need of
young men but no greater need than
the young man have of it. Your
clothes fit you better than your fa
ther's fit him. they cost more money,
they are more stylish. Your mustache
is neater, the cut of your hair is bet
ter. you are prettier, oh. far prettier
"But young man the old gent gets
the biggest salary, and his homely
scriWing signature on the business
end of a check will drain more money
out of the bank in five minutes than
you can get out with a ream of pa
per and a copperplate signature in sis
“Young men are useful, and they
are ornamental, and we all love them,
and we couldn't engneer a picnic
without them but they are no novelty
son. Oh. no. nothing of the kind. They
kave been there before. Don’t be so
modest as to shut yourself clear out
but don’t be so fresh you will have to
be put away in the cool to keep from
spoiling. Don’t be afraid that your
merit will not be discovered. People
all over the world are hunting for
you and if you are worth finding they
will find you. A diamond isn’t so eas
ily found as the quartz pebble, but
people search for it all the more in
tently.—Broken Bow Republican.
CENSUS OF NEBRASKA FARMS
The state board of agriculture has
published in its annual bulletin this
year some interesting statistics along
the line of farm ownership, the acre
age of farms and the acre of cultivat
ed and uncultivated land. This bulle
tin shows that there are S3.133 farm
owners and 68,043 farm tenants. That
is. there are more farmers who own
their farms, living upon them and op^
erating them, than there are tenants
living on leaded farms. In almost
every county the number of farm
owners living on their farms exceed
tenants. This bulletin shows that
ther® are incorporated in strictlv
farms in the state. 30.803.224 acres;
of these acres in farms. 14.209.364 are
cultivated. According to the same
statistics' 223.641 acres are under
irrigation. These statistics are not
complete, but as a general average
they show the proportion of lands
in farms that are cultivated and un
cultivated; the number of acres un
der irrigation probably exceed those
in this statement to a considerable
extenti Improvements on lands in
the state as estimated by the statis
tics of the state board of agriculture
total $113.503,899.—Trade Review.

The wonderful prosperity and
growth of this section is reflected in
the unusual development of business
in Omaha during the year just closed.
With bank clearings of a billion and
a quarter, far exceeding the expecta
tions of the most optimistic, business
in general followed the same course.
Every previous record of Omaha
was broken in 1916. The live stock
market had its greatest year, assert
ing itself in no uncertain way as the
second live stock market of the Vnited
States and the first real Simon Pure
primary market. Omaha crowded Kan
sas City into the background most
decisively with receipts of more than
seven million head, as fallows:
Cattle, 1.434.11S head: hogs. 3.117.
105 head; sheep. 3,170.206 head;
horses, 27.461 head.
The packing house output showed a
corresponding increase, the value of
its output this year being $149,000,000,
a gain of more than thirty-four mil
lions. almost inconceivable.
Manufacturing crept up more than
$26$,000.000. a gain of fifty-five million.
I while jobbing and wholesaling showed
i a like increase, the gain being thirty
; two millions.
Every line of business showed in
creases of from twenty to forty per
Increased volume, increased prices
and increased intensive working were
the factors which contributed to the
wonderful development. With all this
money going to the citizens of the
Omaha trade territory, the metropolis
can wish all a Happy New Tear, based
on mutual profit and pleasure.
