TllK railroads leading into Nebraska

TllK lessees of the state school lands
are jlnding fault with the recent np-

While there may bo insolated cause for

not bo disputed that heretofore school
lands have boon assessed altogether too
low. It was high time to raise their
valuation nt something near the value
of abutting lands. Lessees have no
reason to complain if they are not called
upon to pay a rental equal to the returns

with the rich luuiia lore of that country

Any not of mon who contribute toward
developing the resources of this prolific
state , by whatever means they may
employ , nro entitled to encouragement.
But there is a way how to do n thing ,
and n way how not to do it. Many de
serving nnd worthy enterprises have
proved lamentable failures because
their projectors started wrong.
With all duo respect for the business
tact and good intentions of the
men who organized the Nebraska
State Development association , wo
entertain serious doubts about
their ability to accomplish
much for Nebraska , The association is
the outcome of a convention hold in
this city by delegates selected by the
boards of trndo in the various towns
and cities of Nebraska , The prime ob
ject and purpose of this convention waste
to ngroo upon concerted action of the va
rious business organizations in the state
with n view to inducing loroign capital
to invest in this state nnd encouraging
immigration of the well-to-do Industrial
classes of the oast.
It was expected that the promotern
ot this meritorious movement would
organize a state board of trndo
and under that naino carry on the
campaign ot state development. Any
document emanating from a stuto
board of trndo would bo received with
confidence nnd would carry weight.
But the convention resolved itself into
nn executive committee , and that com
mittee blunderingly adopted the name
of the Nebraska State Development
There uro tlioso who contend that
there is nothing in a name. In this
instance , however , the name is almost
certain to frustrate the ' * obj oct for
which the convention of boards of trade
was hold. What credence will any
body in the east give to
anything that emanates from a
"development association. " Under the
name of development association wo
hnvo had inside construction rings ,
paper-town syndicates , , salted mining
stock deals and speculative enterprises
without number and of questionable
What attention , for instance , vrould
bo paid to any agent or ollloinl armed
with credentials from a development
association oven if the word "state" bo
attached to the great seal ? Would not
such credentials bo discredited nt the
onset , and the holder looked upon
with suspicion as a probable impostor ?
It seems to us that the executive
committee , of the State Development
association can render the Httvto and the
association no bettor service than
taking prompt steps to amend its name
and make it the Nebraska State Boards
of Trade. After that is done we would
tilso suggestan timondinpnt to the or
ganic act. . so as to drop all the nonsense
and claptrap about county representa
tion. The membership should bo con
fined to boards of trade and commer
cial clubs. Such boards and clubs can
only exist in towns and cities. Some
counties hnvo several towns large
enough to supuort boards of trndo ;
other counties may have none. Farm
ers are not expected to take an active
part in commercial bodies. To attempt
n radical departure from the original
design of state boards of trade can
only end in a co'mploto lizzie.
To-day is the one-hundredth anni
versary of ono of the most mem
orable events in the history of Franco ,
or of the world the fall of the Bastille.
Among the many .thrilling episodes of
the French revolution , which have sup
plied a most attractive theme to a score
of historians and produced nn effect
upon the world only less important than
the American revolution , the taking of
the Bastille stands out as the most dra
matic , absorbing nnd impressive of nil.
It was the sturdiest blow which European
despotism , symbolized in that frown
ing and massive fortress-prison , had
over received , and it carried with it a
most potential inspiration to the people.
For centuries the towering black walls
of the Bastille , enclosing horrors realer
or imagined , and within which kihgs ,
princes , nobles and the uniitled vic
tims of royal hatred or caprice lingered
long1 years or ended Ihoir lives in hope
less solitude , stood as the embodiment
of tyranny and the menace of liberty.
In a few hours while the court of Louis
laughed and joked nt the mad folly of
an unarmed mob seeking to accomplish
what had bafllod the great C'onde , the
hated prison was in the hands of the
populace , its seven prisoners were lib
erated , its rigorous commandant had
naid the penalty of service to tyranny
with his life , and tire Bastille had ceased
to bo a terror and a monaco. The people
ple had received another and thrilling
lesson of their power. It would have
been well if , nt the same time , they had
received the wisdom to rightly and
justly use their power.
But , while the taking of the
Bustillo was the forerunner of sav
age atrocities and the usual excesses -
cesses which proceed from unbridled
passions , marking the French revolu
tion as ono of the most savage nnd
bloody epochs in human history , In * itself -
self the event of the taking of the
Bustillo was almost a bloodless triumph.
Carlyle says of it : "Tho siege of the
Bastille , weighed with which , in the
historical balance , most ether sieges ,
including that of Troy town , nro gos
samer , cost , as wo llnd , in killcd'nnd
mortally wounded , on the part of the
besiegers , some oighty-thrco persons ;
on the part of the bosicgod , uftcr all
that straw-burning , flro pumping , nnd
deluge of musketry , ono poor soli
tary invalid , shot stone-dead on the
battlements. The Bastille fortress ,
like the city ot Jericho , was overturned
by miraculous sound. " Yet this sound ,
as the same great historian of the
French revolution tolls us , shook all
Franco to the deepest foundations of its
existence. Everywhere men riibhod to
arms , the nnnod population becoming
an enrolled national guard , and all
France in n brief time bristling with
bayonets. "Thus has Franco , " writes
Carlyle , "for long months and oven
years , boon chemically dealt with ;
brought below zero ; and now , shaken
by the fall of a Bastille , H Instanta
neously congeals Into ono crystal
lized mass of sharp-cutting stooll"
The death-knoll of monarchy nnd of
despotic. rule In Franco had boon
sounded. In that B.amo hour when the
Bustillo fell liberty for Frenchmen bc-
cnmo nssurod , though thnt priceless
boon was yet to bo threatened with
many dangers , nnd to bo finally
achieved only after many torrlblo strug
gles and * sovuro trials.
Now , nftor a century of varied exper
iment nnd experience , Franco is in the
full enjoyment ot the freedom for
which , on July 14 , 1780 , Frenchmen
struck the first blow that re
sounded through the world nnd
nrouBod the people of the entire
nation to rovolution. Some things , indeed
deed , she hosyot to learn ln , order to
perfect republican government and in
stitutions , There nro faults in her system -
tom to bo removed , weak spots thnt
need .to bo strengthened. There nro
false ambitions , also , to bo overcome ,
nnd insidious foes to bo guarded
against. But the principles of popular
liberty hnvo become firmly rooted in the
hearts of her people , nnd whatever else
mayjinppon Franco will never again bo
monnrchlnl. To-day people of nil nation
alities throng the French metropolis
in attendance upon the great exposi
tion which celebrates the be
ginning nnd prbgrossot republican gov
ernment in that country. Looking upon
the Paris of to-day with its nearly
three millions of inhabitants , its his
torical monuments not the least Inter
esting of. which is that which marks
the plnco where stood the Bastille its
treasures of art , nnd all its magnificent
evidence of enlightenment and progress ,
Frenchmen mivy well honor with all
the enthusiasm of their natures the ono
hundredth anniversary of the event
which marks the beginning of'tho great
struggle for liberty in Franco.
A writer in ono of the magazines has
recently contended thnt Americans are
constantly growing weaker physically ,
and that they are altogether inferior
to their ancestors of a century asro , nnd
even of seventy years ago. This al
leged inferiority ho attributes to the
greater sedentary habits of the people ,
and to the fact that they are loss in the
open air than they were formerly. Ho
suggests that Americans should spend
more time out of doors ; that there
should bo moro gymnasiums , and that a
systematic effort should bo made
in the public and ether schools to do-
volon the children physically as well as
mentally. While no fault ban bo found
with these suggestions , which are good
as to any people , it is to bo observed
that the idea that Americans ore dete
riorating physically is a quite common
ono which is not supported by the facts.
The writer referred to has probably
fallen in with the general impression
without having taken the trouble to
ascertain whether it was well founded.
At any rate his position has boon chal
lenged by another writer , who goes to
the statistics for support of his views
and presents facts which will bo pleas
antly reassuring to Americans. Ilosays
that if stamina means the strength and
vitality required to carry ono through
the trials of life , rather than mere mus
cular power , there has certainly boon
no decline among Americans. Indeed ,
if stamina tends to long life , Americans
possess moro than ether pooulo. In evi
dence of this a table is given prepared
by Dr. Billings , of Washington , nn ex
pert on such subjects , which shows that
for a given period of years the death
rate per one thousand of the popu
lation was loss in the United
States than in any ether country from
which vital statistics were obtainable ,
and the Hfo average expectancy greater
than in any other country. Dr. Gihon ,
of the United States navy , is quoted as
saying , speaking generally , that the
death rate is diminishing , and the aver
age length of human life and the dura
tion of a generation on tno earth pro
portionately increasing. According to
this authority , there is loss sickness per
capita than when observers began to
kcop a record of such matters.
It would bo to give little
credit to science for what it
has accomplished in improv
ing methods of living , in providing
bettor sanitary conditions and in in
creasing the popular knowledge of how
to care for health , to assume that the
average length of human life had di
minished , even were there no well at
tested statistics to prove the contrary.
Every intelligent man knows that the
people of to-day live bettor , particularly
the people of the United States , than
over before , and improved living must
necessarily contribute to the average
prolongation of life. Statistics show
that in all advanced countries the average -
ago expectation of life has increased dur
ing the last hundred years from sixty to
ono hundred per cent , the United
.States , so far as the limited facts ob
tained show , having kept pace in this
respect with most other countries.
When the next census , which is' to in
clude vital statistics , is completed , it
will doubtless show that Americana are
not behind the people of any other
country In average longevity , which
will bo sufilcient lo establish their
equality of stamina with any ether
It is not easy to determine whether
the American of to-day possesses loss
muscular strength than his fore
fathers , but it may reasonably bo
supposed thnt ho is fully
thu equal of the men of
old -in this respect. Why should it bo
otherwise when every college in the land
gives attention * to physical training ,
when the national guma furnishes exor
cise for tons of thousands of young mon
who do not play it as n business1 , nnd
when every city has Its gymnasium and
athletic clubs'/ Surely the forefathers ,
hardy nnd rugged as they were , had no
such opportunities for the development
of muscle ns are afforded to-day , and
very widely taken advantage of. It is
undoubtedly true that too many Ameri
cans who pursue sedentary lives
take loss exorcise than is
necessary to maintain good
health. Comparatively few avail them
selves ns much ns they should do of
nature's inoxponsivo'and most health
ful exorcise , walking. Urgency of busl-
ness , nndltarnoarjy universal dostro lo
roach tin objective point with ns Httlo
delay as possible , induce the great mn
jority ot thorn to ride. In this pnrticu-
Inr Englishmen are wfser. They o-
llovo in walking , nnd they got both
health and recreation from U , for It h a
fact which , nny mnn who bits much dur
ing the day may demonstrate to his own
satisfaction , thnt n walk will relieve
rather than induce fatigue. Butgrnntltig
thnt nil Americans are not ns careful as
they should bo to do those things whloh
nro essential to the preservation of
stamina nnd the promotion of long life ,
yet the fnots-obtalimblo show that in
their nvorngo condition they nro not
declining , but , on the contrary , nro
doing ns well as most ether people In
the matter of increased longevity. And
under prevailing conditions then * , is
every reason to expect thnt the next
generation will show anotablo Improve
ment in the physical qualities of our
people over the present.
TUB Concora school of philosophy is
no moro. The announcement ot its de
mise was to Too oxpootod. The nblo body
of mon beginning with Emerson nnd
Thoreau nnd ending with Alcott gave
it virility nnd individuality which their
successors were unable to impart. The
Concord school wag itself a soloot nnd
aristocratic body. Its scope was nar
rowed nnd dealing nlono with abstruse
problem' * oi metaphysics. It never
could appeal to the general public for
support no matter how eager the average -
ago man might bo to sit at the foot of
philosophers. Its place , nevertheless ,
has been supplied by thatsununor school
now so popular nil over the country
known ns the Chautauqun. Its cur-
riculil ombrnco everything from music
to art and from political economy to the
dead languages. Ita influence is re
fining and elevating whether or no it
is nblo .to turn out finished students in
n three weeks' course. It cannot bo de
nied , however , thnt it is reviving n
love of culture for its own sake , and
where the seeds of learning are so
ploantifully sprinkled it must bo bar

As I look up into your eyes , and wait
For some response to my fond gaze and
touch ,
It seems to mo there is no sadder fate
Than to bo doomed to loving overmuch.
Are you not klndl Ah , yes , so very kind
So thoughtful of my comfort , and so true.
Yes , yes , dear heart ; but I , not being blind ,
Know tbat I am not loved , as I love you.
Ono tenderer word , a little longer kiss ,
Will fill my soul with musio and with
sons ;
And if you seem abstracted , or I miss
The heart-tone from your voice , my world
goes wrong.
And oftentimes you think me childish
When at some thoughtless word the tears
will start ;
you cannot understand how aught you
Has power to stir tbo depths of my poor

Or feign indifference where I now adore ;
For if I seemed to love you loss you would ,

A constant heart ; for fact doth dally
That constancy finds oft a cruel sting ,
Wliilo fleklo natures win the deepest love.

qulto as noble a specimen , and for aught the

of the two. A man whoso practkcs are as

cannot further degrade himself than ho has

Some of the nowspancrs In Omaha present

the grim spectre of disaster has stared it in

lost over $17,000 during its brief
and harmless career. And still
another is said to make dally iss .01 of dead

effort expended upon it aver $10,000 have

its manager. During this time , however , the
paper was made bolter than ever before , nnd
Its circulation was increased. But
the booki to-day will not show
1,800 paying subscribers outside of Omaha.
Ono of the great mistakes made by the
World and Republican was the reduction of
the price to 3 and 2 cents respectively. No
newspaper worthy the name car bo produced
in Omaha for that money without going to
the wall. It bus proved a losing experiment.
Their owners lost sight of the fact that the
public was ever willing to pay 5 cents for a
newsy paper , and that by reducing- the price
they killed tbo goose that might lay the
golden egg.
Repeated changes of ownership injure a
newspaper just as they do any business en
terprise dependent upon the patronage and
good will of nil the people. Public confi
dence in the stability and integrity of n
newspaper must huvo been established be
fore it can hope for any measure of success.
Most of the alleged newspapers of Omaha

fuvorublo that the fiiir of ISS'J will outdo all

one time that a decision of the railroads to
