Americans are the greatest fruit

Although Canada was won Iroin
he French by the English more than
a century and a half ago , the French
residents of a suburb of Montreal oh-
ected most strenuously to a recent at-
empt to place an English sign on the
lostolllce. They gathered in the vil-
age square and after a patriotic dem
onstration in which the songs of their
athers were enthusiastically sung
hey placed a sign in the French lan
guage upon the building. It takes a
eng time to make an Englishman out
of a Frenchman.
The incident of 2,000 voters being
ilisfranchised for live years for vote
selling in Ohio Is still fresh in the
public mind. Probably not many have
thought to ask who bought their votes
or what punishment was meted out to
the purchaser. But recent disclosures
supported by affidavits of the offend
ing voters seem to prove that Judge
Blair , who made this wholesale on
slaught to purify the ballot Is , him
self , the guilty party. If the offense
charged were not so serious , this
would add a spice of comedy to the
melodrama , with Blair in each case in
the leading role.
In ten years the automobile bus
revolutionized the world. It has ou
distances into fractions of their for

great distance and permitting them to
become better acquainted with the !
neighboring communities , have come
to be quite a commonplace spectacle ii

To the prevailing sight of closet
church doors during hot weather , with
the parsons mostly summering at coo

At the same time , when the young

inner resentment at conservative re

serious accident Friday evening , who
a Hoskins man driving an automobll
was struck In the face and serious ]
wounded , ought to be enough of
warning to t'he authorities to put
stop to the nuisance.
The streets were made for vehicle
and not for a baseball field. The dan
ger of throwing a ball back and fort
on a principal business street , or an
other street , Is obvious. Friday's ac
cldent tells the story. v
And what happened Friday will hap

Do you think Norfolk doesn't need
a hospital ? Do you think the people
of this city arc doing their duty by
themselves , or by their families , or by
the tributary which looks to Norfolk
as Its metropolis , in not building a
hospital ? Is it fair to ourselves that
when members of our families are sicker
or injured , they must bo carted 120
miles tin n rough railroad Journey , be
fore they tan get modern , sanitary
care ?
Suppose It was your wife , or your
ttlo girl or little boy who was slid-
only stricken and needed hospital
are , If n battle were to be made for
Ife ? Wouldn't you think , then , that
Norfolk needed something of that
ort ? Don't you think we owe it to
nil-selves to get busy on this proposi-
Ion ? Is there a man in all Norfolk
vho wouldn't gladly go Into his pocket
nd give as liberally as he could , to
stabllsh such an Institution in this
ity ? Surely not.
As a rule the maintenance of hos-
) ltals In small cities is unprofitable ,
riit a proposition was made to the
Corfolk Commercial club some months
igo whereby , if the city will build n
; 10,000 hospital , its maintenance for
ever will bo taken care of by the Epis-
opal church of Nebraska.
The News hopes , and it believes the
icople of Norfolk hope , that the di
rectors of the Commercial club may
ee their way clear to take up the
natter of raising money for a hospital ,
vithout further delay.
Norfolk has needed a hospital for
nany years , and it needs It worse
every day. The cost is a small matter ,
vhen its importance to the community
s considered , and there's no time like
.he present for getting busy on the
The statistics of any of our college
graduating classes show a remarkable
hange as respects choice of business
nnd professions.
Take for instance , the Harvard class
of 1911. Here are the figures of stu-
lents choosing the so-called learned
professions : Law , 78 ; medicine , 2-1 ;
ministry , S ; teaching. 49 ; total. 159.
These are the total for business

That Is , the most famous American
miverslty , once almost exclusively a
training school for the scholastic pro
fessions , is turning out more business
than professional men today.
It is felt by many people that it is a
mistake , as a business proposition , for
a young man who is bent on a com
mercial career , to spend four years in
college. The recently published fig
ures of the Dartmouth college grad
uates of the year 1900 do not support
that Idea. The returns of that class
so far as available showed that they
are now averaging to earn ? 2C30 per
And yet everyone of us counts in
his personal acquaintance college men
who are grinding away at adding up
columns of figures or tending ribbon
counters , work for which six months
in a commercial school would have
given adequate preparation.
What is the mysterious influence of
the classic shades of college , assum
ing due attention to work on the part
of the student , that has this power to
enlarge the scope of a man's life , even
from the coarse and fleshly viewpoint
of business success ?
It would indeed be hard to analyze.
Ono great element must be the per
sonality of the college faculty. The
boy comes from a secondary echool
where methods of teaching are too
often conventional and routine. He
finds the teachers repeating facts and
directing them how to do certain prob
lems , after rules found in books.
The typical college professor Is a
more original worker. He is apt to
proceed as if no book on the suhjecl
had ever been written , and as if pro
fessor and student were original ex
plorers in mi untried and undiscov
ered field.
This gives a student the habit of
thinking out things for himself , and
discovering and creating successes out
of situations where others see onlj
The movement for a more patriotic ;
expression of national sentiment on
July 4 gains force every year , and
awakens approval even from those
who are tolerant of the destructive

At the same time , to make this civic
birthday look good to the small boy

generation ago , accounts of which yen
can find In the files of our older news
Of course the fathers used to have
a Jolly time with wrestling matches
barbecues of fat animals , and other
exuberances. But when one reads the
typical July 4 speech of about the
year 1840 to 1850 , it Is clear that the
patriotism of today Is at least more

According to the holiday oratory of
those celebrations , the entire polltica

the wisdom of newly fledged alumni.

The new Fourth and its oratory will
look more to the future than to the

Substance and Shadow
In nothing Is the practical man BO
likely to err HH in underestimating tbo
vnlua of tbo man of thought. Ho
doesn't read history aright. Sonio man
of thought , some pioneer of Imagina
tion , Homo < 1 rim mer , 1ms been back of
every worthy work the world has over
known. Bainuol Adams did as much
with his pen as George Washington
with his flword for the colonies. Our
national clangor today is American
Ideals becoming materialistic. Wc'ro
placing our trust In horses nnd chari
ots rather than in men. I stood not
long ago on dock of Hteamer watching
the launching of tbo mightiest onglno
of destruction the world has ever soon ,
turret rising upon turret , batter- upon
battery. No wonder bands played ,
flags waved and crowds cheered. The
evening papers called attention to thin
floating citadel as n symbol of the pow
er of our great republic. Yet the event
was neither so InteroHtlng nor so suggestive -
gestivo of tbo real glory and hope of
our nation as the simple commoiu'o-
ment exercises which will take place-
In hundreds of towns throughout our
land during the month of Juno. Young
men and women representing the best
and highest typo of tbo American people
ple will graduate from our high schools ,
colleges and universities. These rep
resent the real strength of our nation
more than armies or navies.
Looking at or Through.
"Where there is no vision the people
perish , " says Holy Writ. Then is tolii
the story of Abraham forsaking his
Idols going out , "not knowing whith
er ; " Jacob nt Bethel , with tbo angels
descending and ascending the heaven
ly ladder ; child Samuel on his couch in
twilight of temple ; Solomon nt Glboon
hearing God soy , "Ask what I shall
give tbee. " Tell me your dreams , I'll
tell you the history of your llfo.
Dreams are shadows of things hoped ,
for , the substance of things not seen.
Every concrete thing in the world IB n
dream made true , whether Indian wo
man weaving a basket in Oklahoma or
engineer pushing a tube under Hud
son river. Phidias dreamed and the *
marble spoke ; Joan of Arc dreamed
nnd French armies fought ; Field
dreamed and tied two continents to
gether ; Bell dreamed and the tele-phono
spoke ; Edison dreamed and the phonograph
graph sung ; the Wrights dreamed and
airships sail the skies. The world's
dreamers are the world's doers , for it
must needs be the dream come true.
The difference between dreamer and
visionary is as much as between child
like and childish. Much depends OR
the looking. Ono can look at a windowpane -
dowpano or beyond it , upon n tele
scope or through it
The Triumph of the Dr am r.
When Lorenz , great Austrian sur
geon , was a ragged , barefoot lad , he
found ono day n glove , the glove of a
gentleman. Mother wild sadly , "It will
bo long before you can earn the other ,
my boy. " Ever read the story of win
ning the other glove ? It's Uirllling.
Years of struggle , poverty , defeat A.
terrible ecnyna breaks out on him nnd
closes the coveted door. Twenty years
later , in our day , the prayers nnd
blessings of Europe nnd America are
his he has found the other glove.
Thursday noon , Dec. 12 , 1001 , a great
Inventor awaits the decisive moment
of his life. Signal Hill , Newfoundland ;
a bluff , raw day ; 300 feet below him
thunders the cold sea stretching out
2,000 miles to the coast of the British
isles. No sound. A kite gyrates wild
ly above. Then throe sharp clicks. Ten
minutes Inter more agreed signals.
Dramatic moment the dreamer has
won Marconi's wireless is assured.
Surely the Southern Cross never
crowned more sublime scene than at
4 o'clock on the morning of Oct 112.
1402 , when Rodorlgo do Frinna from
masthead of Columbus' flagship shouts ,
"Land , land ! " The news Is flashed
from Plnta to Nina to Santa Maria ,
nnd San Salvador is written on tbo
world's map for first time. The mys
tery of the sea is revealed the dream
er's dream Is now history.
What's the dream of that young car
penter ? Ruler of synagogue ? Rabbi ?
High priest ? Foolish boyl He has no
teacher , no great friends , no money ,
Still he dreams a dream of world
conquest Huh ! He hasn't even a
word. They crucify htm between
thlerea. The dreamer has triumphed
by wny of the CTOM.
