It Is moot and proper at all times that all the people should celebrate together the culmination of a summer of effort In an autumn of harvest and plenty. And the people of Nebraska have never had more reason for Joy ous harvest home demonstrations than this season. A bounteous yield has rewarded the efforts of the husband man, and the flocks and herds have In creased, and in alt material ways the condition of the Inhabitants of the state has been Improved. Thia is why Ak-Sar-Ben comes with an especial invitation. The carnival Itself merely draws together many per sons, each bent for the time on avoid ing care and indulging with no re straint in the light pleasures of the holiday time. But Ak-Sar-Ben really means much more than this. It has Its serious side, although that is fre quently overlooked in the amusement that it affords. The carnival period is merely the outward showing of an end to the sum mer activities of the organization, but it is not Its chief purpose. If Ak-Sar-Ben stands for anything at all, it is for a systematic effort to bring into closer communion the inhabitants of the region that surrounds Omaha, to advance their acquaintance with one another and to foster the spirit of co operation so necessary to substantial growth. It would take a long time to recount all that has been accomplished along these lines, but an incident of the last Bummer's campaign was the bringing to Omaha of a large delega tion of representative men from Lin coln and the establishment anew of friendly feelings between the capital and the metropolis. It is such achievements as these that make Ak-Sar-Ben useful to the state, and Its great possibilities in this way is net to be forgotten even during the time of the carnival. Much similar work remains, and Ak-Sar-Ben will continue without cessation until the rule of the great king is firmly estab lished and the people of the kingdom are united in a single purpose to ad vance its general prosperity. INDIA'S BIDDEN GOLD. Officials of the British government have renewed the agitation for the adoption of some plan by the govern ment that will draw the hidden wealth of India into the channels of trade. As yet the authorities have not decided upon any plan of action, but they are showing deep anxiety over the estab lished fact that something more than $1,500,000,000 in gold which has gone into India In the last half century has never returned, despite efforts of the British government to change the cur rency syBtem of India by placing the rupee on a gold basis and by offering rare inducements to the Indians to in vest their wealth In British railway and other securities. The hoarding still goei on, the Hindus paying a pre mium for gold and hiding It as rapidly as it comes into their possession. Evidently it has not occurred to the British authorities to try the policy of fair treatment as an inducement for the people of India to use their gold in the channels of trade. Instead of treating the natives as serfs, maltreat ing them and denying them any social intercourse between government offi cials and the higher classes, a policy of seeking to improve their commercial and industrial relations might work wonders. While attempting to subdue and repress India, the British have done nothing to encourage the natives to take part in the development of the natural resources of the great empire. The result is that famine and pesti lence are almost chronic in a nation with a population of 300,000,000 per sons and a soil capable of great devel opment. The education of the natives and their encouragement to Improve their farms and become self-supporting would do more than the enactment of laws by Parliament to induce India to reveal Its hidden gold. TrK WORLD'S WHEAT FIELDS. Crop experts and economic theorists have been busy for years predicting the coming of the time when the growth of population, the constant in crease in the consumption of wheat and the exhaustion of the area suHable for wheat cultivation would bring a world-wide famine. Only a few years ago Secretary Wilson of the Depart- i ment of Agriculture stated that the date was not far distant when the United States, owing to demand for home consumption, would cease to be a wheat-exporting nation. Malthus, the English economist, undertook to prove that a check would ultimately have to be applied to the increase in population in order to avoid a food famine. Within a month. Sir William Crookes, in an address before the British Association for the Advance ment of Science, argued that in a few years the world's demand for wheat would overtake the supply. In the meantime the good old Mother Earth is going right along, increasing the yield of the staple from year to year, meeting all demands and showing no symptoms of renlging on the work. Rollin E. Smith of Minneapolis has published a book on "Wheat Fields and Markets of the World," that con tains assurance enough to satisfy even the most timid that the world's bread box is In no danger of being found empty forages to come. Mr. Smith shows that the wheat yield annually is now much larger than the early experts dreamed possible and that the prospect for largely increasing this yield are ex cellent. The world's wheat crop in 1897 was 3,226.000.000 bushels, while It was 3, 414, 000.000 bushels in 1906, an. Increase of 60 per cent in nine years. He shows, too, that a decrease of as much as 300,000,000 bushels in a year's crop does not appear to affect the bread-estlng world. The con sumption Is apparently as elastic as the supply. When the crop Is big and prices low the people eat more wheat bread than usual. When there Is a short crop and consequent high prices the people economize or find other bread stuff s, so the law of supply and demand works to a nicety and without causing any suffering or much real In convenience. The significant feature of Mr. Smith's book is his prediction that the world's production of wheat will be In creased without much difficulty to as much as 6,000,000,000 bushels when the demand warrants It. Irrigation, dry farming, improvement of-the yield and the opening of new wheat-growing lands are relied npon to produce this Increase. Canada, Argentina, China, Manchuria .and Turkey are cited as lands suitable, under proper condi tions, for wheat growing, while In the United States it is expected that in tense farming will result in very ma terially increasing the present average yield. COlOitlt WaTTERSOX 0,V BHTAIf. Colonel Henry Watterson, the vet eran editor of the Louisville Courier Journal, is showing all the seal of a new convert in championing the cause of Colonel - Bryan of Nebraska, Colo nel Watterson has a habit of writing editorials running from three to seven columns in length and when he com pletes discussion of any proposition there is nothing left to be said upon It. His praises of Mr. Bryan are the most enthusiastic. Seldom has adula tion been more pronounced. Colonel Watterson is convinced that when Mr. Bryan gets to the White House, if he ever does, "militant democracy of the school of Jefferson and Jackson and Tilden will renew its youth and vigor, leading the way to such reforms in the national house and senate as will re store them their legislative functions and give the people assurance of real and lasting good." It is difficult to imagine how ' the thing could have been said more hand somely. The effort is still more strik ing when compared with this scintillat ing production of Colonel Watterson's pen, taken from the columns of the Louisville Courier-Journal when Mr. Bryan was making a tour of Kentucky in 1896: Mr. William J. Bryan has come to Ken tucky and Kentucklans have taken his measure. He Is a Boy Orator. He Is a Distinguished Dodger. He Is a Daring Adventurer. He is a Political Faker. He Is not of the Material of which the people of the United States have ever made a President, nor Is he even of the Material of which any party has ever before made a Candidate for the Presidency. This Youngster who has set himself up as the financial Teacher of the American People, travels over the land with a Tire less Tongue and a Voluminous Vocabulary blandly telling the People of the Impossi ble things that will happen In the future and Free Coinage of Silver when he Is utterly Ignorant of the simplest facts of our past financial history. We can not imagine why Colonel Watterson has so changed his opinion of Mr. Bryan, particularly .when Mr. Bryan insists that he has changed no Issues and still holds the views he espoused when he made that tour of Kentucky. No longer ago than last April Mr. Bryan declared in a speech at Danville, 111., that every plank of the democratic platform adopted In Chicago In 1896 Is stronger now than it was then. If there has been any change It has been In Colonel Watter son and not in Mr. Bryan. PUBLIC SCHOOL TRAlN)SO: Despite the fact that the - public school system of the United States is conceded to be the best in the world, critics are always ready to find fault with it, and some recent pointing out of shortcomings appears to be with fair show of warrant. " Postmaster General Meyer has recently Issued an appeal to the teachers of the country to co-operate with the postal authori ties in an effort to lighten the work of the dead letter office. General Meyer explains that an average of 3,000 let ters are dally sent to the dead letter office for lack of proper directions and he believes that much could be done to lessen this evidence of carelessness or Ignorance if the teachers of the na tion, would give frequent "short talks" to pupils on how to address letters plainly and properly. The second criticism of the public schools comes from Colonel Charles W. Lamed of West Point, who, In an article in the North American Review, reports that of 351 young men 90 per cent of whom were the product of the public schools who applied for admission to West Point 223 were re jected because of their lack of kncfwl edge of spelling, history and other forms of rudimentary education. Colonel Larned proposes to have the curriculum at West Point enlarged in order to give the cadet applicants a training they have not received in the public schools. In addition to the criticisms of Post master General Meyer and Colonel Larned a writer In the Delineator has an article entitled "What's the Matter With the Public Schools?" in which the results are given of a number of investigations in different public schools of the country. Stress is laid upon the lack of thoroughness of pub lic school children In reading, spelling and the' simpler branches. The testi mony of 1,600 business men who have employed grammar school graduates was cited to show most unsatisfactory results. The writer sums up by con cluding that in the public schools too much attention is given to French, German, geometry, music - and what not at expense of the essentials. All of this has been discussed before and the situation is tragic and deplora ble enough. The school system is faulty, perhaps, but it would be more faulty If effort were made to adopt any great part of the remedies suggested. Every critic, as in the Instances cited, proposes some addition to the course of study. Better resnlts unquestion ably would follow the lightening of the burdens of the pupils. As it is, they have too much to worry about without being asked to listen to lec tures on postal affairs or given Instruc tion In bookkeeping and bill collecting. If there is any demand for a change it Is that more attention be paid to the essentials and less to the frills. A WORLD-WIDE MENACE. No section of the United States, however remote from the sea coast or removed from the usual highways of travel, can afford to be unconcerned at the danger that menaces the civilized world by the prevalence and spread of the cholera in Russia and In the Phil ippines. The possibility of an epi demic of cholera in America is greater htan it was In 1S32, when the disease left a path of death across the conti nent. Transportation Improvements have reduced the world to small pro portions and thus added unusual fa cilities for the- spread of the contagion. Without desiring to pose as alarm ists, physicians who have made a study of the cholera are calling attention to the fact that the plague is attacking civilization by the same route as when it. made its former memorable appear ance in 1832. It has reached the Rus sian capital from India. Then it found its way to England and crossed the Atlantic, appearing at Quebec. It reached the United States through De troit and then spread across the conti nent, sparing but few sections of the country and causing deaths by ' the thousands. While great advancement has been made in all ' lines of medical science, the cure for cholera has not been dis covered. Physicians are not real sure of the cause of the disease, although all agree that cleanliness In person and surroundings and care in the matter of diet are the best precautions against the plague. To that extent every Indi vidual can be a volunteer In the war against any possible spread of cholera. THE HEW "TURKISH QUESTION." .The civilized world has a more or less direct interest In the affairs of the sultan of Turkey. The Turkish ques tion has occupied much of the atten tion of the diplomatic world for more than a half century and the religious and missionary organizations of the world, particularly of this country, have given more energy, effort and money to reform In Turkey 'than to any other benighted nonchristlan coun try, China not excepted. The Turkish people have been slow to accept these overtures intended for their uplifting, but the developments of the last few months hold promise of a real up heaval In the Bultan's domains in the near future. The new Turkish Parliament, under the constitution ' granted last month by the sultan, will convene at Constan tinople at the. middle of November, but there are indications that the "Young Turk" party will not wait until that time to carry out some of its reform plans, the most significant of which demands the abdication or removal of the present sultan. The movement for reform has gone to the extent that even Mundji Bey, the diplomatic rep resentative of Turkey at Washington, is quoted as declaring that he does not consider himself the "personal rep resentative of Abdul Hamld, but of the whole Ottoman empire," and he further declares that Hamld Is "a man without a vestige of real power, a de tested autocrat mindful only of his own safety." It is one of the peculiarities of the Turkish character that the people have always had a high regard for the sul tanate, showing great respect for the office, while often holding contempt and hate for the occupant of it Rev olution, abdication and assassination have figured In changes of sultans for many years and surface indications are that Abdul Hamid is now slated for removal from the throne by one of the established methods. Tho civilized world will . not shed many tears over the prospect of Abdul Hamid's prospective retirement from the Turkish throne. Crafty, .cruel, shifty, cowardly, he has done nothing for the good of his own people, while he has done too much to keep the di plomatic relations of Europe more or less strained. His empire is bankrupt and its people oppressed with a tax burden not witnessed elsewhere in the modern world. Relief through the new Parliament is expected, but the thinking Turks know that the sultan's promises cannot be relied upon and they have no confidence in real reform so long as he remains on the throne. With Abdul Hamld out of the way. there is hope and some prospect that Turkey may take advantage of its position on the main highway of the world's commerce and more or less rapidly raise a free and progressive state on the wreck of the Imperial autocracy. We Insist that Mr. Bryan is not do ing the right thing by his home town. His prolonged absence from Lincoln has knocked Into a cocked hat all the expectations built on the money which was to be coined out of the pilgrims to Falrvlew. Complaint is made that children in the public schools are not taught to write letters properly. Recent politi cal developments would Indicate that the pupils should be also taught how to burn letters properly. The Bryanltes are keeping up the populist masquerade In this state in order to fool somebody. Democratic candidates would not be labeled pop ulists nnless they thought that by be ing so mlsbranded they might get votes they could not get with their real Identity disclosed. "The democratic party cannot af ford to have the slightest suspicion of Standard Oil affiliations attach to Its national organization," says the New York World. The democratic party has a lot of things this year that it cannot afford. The rules of the house in congress against which Mr. Bryan so eloquently declaims are the same rules in force In that body when Mr. Bryan served as a member of a democratic congress. The first Information Governor Haskell received when he arrived In Chicago from Oklahoma was that he had resigned the treasurershlp of the democratic national committee. The French court of cassation Is to have another try at the Dreyfus case. The world would be pleased to have the Dreyfus case passed upon by the French court of cassation. Some rather questionable characters are listed among the donors to the Bryan campaign fund, but no one has yet heard of any tainted money being rejected. SERMONS BOILED DOWN. There Is no faith without some feeling for our fellows. Faith Is not a balancing pole for the man on the fence. Refuse another's burden and you lose your own blessing. A great sorrow may be the fitting for some great service. It takes more than a loathing of hell to lead to heaven. You never will find good in a boy by the detective method. , The clinkers nlways take credit for the full head of steam. That Is not a good life which does not find living a glad thing. Men who are doing a big business never need a "busy" sign. Bearing your cross does not relieve you from paying your taxes. The world never agrees with the man who tries to swallow It whole. Nothing Impoverishes a good deed quicker than thinking of Its profit. You cannot Improve your view of heaven by climbing on your brother's back. It's the little happinesses we sow that give us the harvest of perpetual pleasure. The saddest people In this world are those who are always fleeing from sorrow. A rabid defense of creed Is often accom panied by a remarkable Indifference to deed. The favorite circus In the average church Is that of whipping the devil around the stump. The people who are too laxy to run In the race always get up a perspiration over the way the prises go. Chicago Tribune. SECULAR SHOTS AT THE ' PULPIT Baltimore American: A . missionary who haa been holding Wail Street meetings de clares there are over 1,000,000 non-churchgoers In New York. He has evidently struck the right place to find a few. Cleveland Plain Dealer: A clergyman In a New York Interior town has refused a tiiOO addition lo his salary. It Isn't so much the expense of the renunciation aa It Is the pastor's extraordinary display . of per sonal courage. New York Tribune: In railing against our civilisation as a humbug the Rev. Dr. Long of Brooklyn, "Christian Socialist," has not even the merit of originality. Many years ago that distinguished social philoso pher. Truthful James, raised the query, "Is our civilization a failure, and Is the Cau casian played out?" And that, too, was at the conclusion of an arduous investigation of some phases of applied sociology which not even the studies of the Rev. Dr. Long have surpassed. ' Springfield Republican: The New York Review, a Roman Catholic literary maga zine, bimonthly, has suspended publication from lack of patronage. It was started at St. Joseph's seminary, Dunwoodle, West cheater county, N. Y., three years ago, and Its motto was "Ancient Faith and Modern Thought." The pope had nothing to do wrth Its failure. It appears, but the indif ference of the Catholics, for Rev. James F. Drlscoll, the editor, says, "only about 1,000 Catholics In the country were sufficiently Interested to pay 12 a year." And. heJ added:. "We also came In for a great deal of criticism, both at home and abroad, for our alleged advanced thought. Father Leplder of the college of propaganda at Rome, criticised some of our contributions rwith particular vigor in his classes." PERSONAL AND OTHERWISE. "The Big Wind" Is the title of a story In a current magarine. It does not refer to the campaign. What Is Oyster Bay's loss will presently become Cincinnati's gain. The former queen city needs special advertising. The young ruler of Portugal gets $1,000 a day for expenses and anxiety of mind. This sum marks the top notch of kid salaries. Divorce papers serve to bring out the true names of actors and actresses. The papers filed In Nevada .by Nat C. Goodwin against Maxlne Elliott were merely entitled "Harry McMillan, plaintiff, against Edna Good rich." The father of an eligible daughter In Mis souri thought he could show that the appli cant for her hand wasn't In her class. The youngster put the old man to sleep and when he came out of It the marriage cere mony was over. "Bless you, my children," muttered pa as he blinked the mourning eye. A pamphlet issued by the California Earth quake commission devotes twenty pages to listing the hundreds of after-shocks follow ing the great disturbance of April 18, 19Jt. The record covers fourteen months. The natives regard these alarms superfluous and unworthy of mention the daily prints. "The product of a New England con science, tinctured with Yankee caution," was the message attached to a recent con tribution of S500 to the United States treas ury conscience fund. From other remarks In the accompanying note it appears the fellow's conscience required twenty-eight years to open the combination to his purse. Some lean, lank, dyspeptic scribe with an all-wool grouch, breaks Into print to dis credit the universally conceded good nature of fat men. "You never can t-11 by the looks of fat men," he roars, "whether they are pleased or ugly. As a matter of fact, they can't look any different, so they get credit for a whole lot of good nature that don't bflong to them. A fatty may feet like kicking the crutch from under a cripple or throwing the soup at bis grandmother, but his beefy face still wears the same old grin, and everybody that passes him by Imagines he's banded 'sot the Jolly hall."
