J. He wa first a tudcnt, then a lawyer, then a min
isler of the gospel, and finally a great editor and
i philosopher. A logical mind, which had been thor
oughly opened, and which never lost it receptivity,
waa devoted to the examination and analysis of all
the great problems that arose from time to time,
ond a clear vision that reflected abundant faith,
illuminated the writings and utterance of thi re
markable man, who refused to part with hi genial
sweotnes merely because day passed in swift flight,
feach bearing him a little further toward the end.
His work wa not that nf a Anvr nnr did V. .-

STUDYING NEBRASKA IN THE SCHOOLS.
The ignorance of Nebraskan upon the subject
of Nebraska is really appalling. While it i true
that the history of Nebraska I being taught in a
desultory way, it is equally true that not enough
emphasi is placed upon that sNjdy, nor is the text
book provided sufficient. '
Every school child in Nebraska should be taught
to the fullest possible extent the glorious history
of this commonwealth and the wonderful possibili
ties it possesses. Such instruction would build for
better citizenship because it would develop a pa
triotism that would knit them to the soil. Born
of the titanic struggle over slavery, Nebraska wa
n the fullest sense of the term a "soldier state."
Fifty years ago its population was less than a
hundred thousand, and seven-tenth of it Inhab
it nts were within fifty mile of the Missouri river.
Men and women who have not yet reached three
score and ten can remember when their school
geographies described three-fourth of Nebraska as
belonging to "The Great American Desert," and
marked it as uninhabitable. And yet, within the
hhorf; span of half a century a people whose en
terprise has been beyond compare have wrested
this commonwealth from the desert and ma'de it
possible for Nebraska to set record of development'
unr'nualcd in history.
It produces more agricultural wealth per capita
than any other state. Its. per capita of farm wealth
exceed that of any other state. It stands at the
very head of education. In short, of all things

SHALL THE CLOCK BE SILENCED ?
I the tickless clock, exhibited by a German en
gineer at Berlin, a "boon to humanity," as described
by the correspondent who forwards the news to
America? Shall the boys and gfrls of 1950 wonder
what I meant by phrases which tell of life's seconds
being ticked off, or any of the countless allusions
to the ticking of the clock in literature, poetry or
prose, where the silencers broken only by the sound
mentioned? In what words will the "sob reporter"
of the period tell of the passing of thf last hour
of the condemned criminal,if he is not permitted
to tick them off? Will baby be comforted when
grandpa distracts his attention by holding a sound
less watch to his ear? s
What about the uneasy sleeper who lulls him
self to slumber by tryirwg to fit words to the
monotonous "tick, tock," that records the passage
of the weary hours, or the impatient schoolboy,
who notes the slow drag of the last five minutes by
the same steady note? Man records only the flight
of time, for he has no command, of even one tick
of the clock In advance, tat the pendulum records
lor him his progress to the day when time shall end
so far as he is concerned. The tick is monotonous,
merciless, inevitable, in this sense. Yet it is also
an inspiration, for it urges us on by feminding us
"Art Is longj and time Is fleeting,
And our hearts, though stout and brave..
Still like muffled drums are beating ,
Funeral mnrche to the grave."
From the measured candle, the clepsydra, and
the primitive list of time-recording machines
and devices, man has clung with fondness to the
clock that ticks. It wa the German who gave us
the cuckoo clock; now is he going to destroy one
of our institution by eliminating the cheeriest sound
that breaks the stillness of a quiet night at home?
Think how you will miss the clock's tick when you
awaken in the blackness of the "wee, sma,' hours
ayont the twal," and thank your star for the Yan
kee clockmaker, whose pendulum wing with a
noise like the crack of doom.
FRANKLIN K. LANE'S LETTERS.
Franklin Knight Lane was the one really con
structive element in either of President Wilson's
cabinet. His service prior to entering the cabinet
had been of high order, and hi work a ecretary
of the Interior gained for him still more of general
approbation. Twice appointed by republican presi
dent to a place on the Interstate Commerce com
mission, he yet remained a staunch democrat, and
steadfastly supported President Wilson in his po
His letters, just published by his wife, are the
most valuable of any of the contributions to his

this is true because the publication is p.thumu,
and no tvpreaaion of the writer ran be twisted into
an effort at jutttflcetioa of hi attitude toward bis

REVIVAL OF, " PUDD'N'HEAD WILSON."
Omaha is a long way from Broadway, but a
radio wave may travel the distance; it is even pos
sible that suggestion from Omaha may have some
weight amortg the powers that be in the world of
the theater down there. This is offered for what it
Many so-called modern plays have proved fail
ures or at bett short-lived successes. Their appeal
has not been such as to meet the call of the pub
lic's restless mood. A rather disquieting thought
is that the plays which have endured are those
marked by a definite quality of depression of mood.
Pretending to discuss life in terms of actuality, they
take up only some detached episode, plausible
enough, yet showing but a glimpse and not a cross
section of society. Such dramatic clinic serve a
purpose, but they do not satisfy.
Recourse is had to revivals to fill out the gaps
that are left by want of new material, and, not at
all strange, some of these revivals are proving realty
successful. Particularly on the screen have plays
of a few years ago found joyous welcome from the
multitude, most of whom had never seen the drama
offered in any form. This thought leads to the sug
gestion that more of these ploys might be resur
rected and made use of.
"Pudd'n'head Wilson" is one in mind. It was
shown in Omaha by Frank Mayo and a splendid
company a quarter of a century ago; it practically
dropped out when Mayo died, but it might well be
revived now. Few comedies ever equaled it from
the standpoint of dramatic excellence, it has an his
toric background, and Is of such social value as to
be serviceable in any epoch. Mark Twain's book
still is read and enjoyed, and it does not require a
prophetic gift to foretell public interest renewed In
the play made by the author and Frank Mayo from
that book. Dave Wilson and the Wise Men of Daw
son Landing would be heartily greeted by folks who
go to the theater for pleasure.
THE BASIC PRINCIPLE.
A few evening ago we listened to a speaker
who ably addressed us on present world conditions.
He stated, and we think his statement is accepted
by all thinking people, that the only remedy for the
ills of society is Love as taught nineteen hundred
years ago by the Man of Galilee.
Since we know that Love is the only remedy,
why do we withhold it from the suffering patient;
why not hasten to administer it generously that
health may come flooding back to the weakened
body and feebly beating heart? Why do we hesi-tate?
Because with this remedy, as I often the case
with remedie in the medical world, there 1 a prin
ciple therein that we shrink from swallowing be
cause it is unpleasant to the taste. In this case the
principle 1 Self-Denial; for, after all. the basic
principle of Love, the thing that make Love possi
ble1 I a willingness to forget ourselvea for the bene
fit of others! it is the acid tt of our affections. J
Life is a "give and take" proposition; it is maaa
up of many sacrifices of desires and ambition, and
a individuals and nation we mut learn to con.
tribute our share of Self Denial before we are en-
titled to partake of the contribution of others, or
before we demand that other make that contribu
tion. Did not the great Teacher of 1 eve say that
if any man will follow M let Him deny lume!f,
and take up hie crwa?'
. Truly, there la no ether way than by Love; let

She waa a red-faced woman,
crowned with a bonnet introduced
by Mrs. Lanfftry In 1878, but worn
on this occasion with some degrees
off center. On her arm she carried
a basket, of which the contents, de
cently covered with a towel, might
have been freshly laundered shirt.
Being stopped by a gentleman of
Allerton's impresslveness and plain
ly suffering expression, her face
grew motherly and sympathetic.
" 'Madam, I wish to ask if you'll
marry me?' "
"Even a dull brain couldn't fnll
to catch the words hammered out
with thi force of precision. The
woman didn't wait to have them re

awe epochs In American history. It
nas a niHtinct unvuntage over other
puwicatlons that dea with the snh.
ject or tno Wilson cabinets, for it
contents are made up from documents
not written for public perusal. Nor
had the writer quarreled with the
president at any time, so there wa
tio-nd for hla setting out to prove
nis own case at tne expense of the ex
eoutlw. Any crltlclain of nolicv tiur
sued, therefore, la the expression of
a man wno (llfTered with his chief In
opinion, but whose aense of loyalty
to his superior is strong enough to
hold him to the course, and thla he
could do without sacrifice of anv nart
