On the coaat of England the other day
a email pleasure ateamer bearing twenty
aix passengers, all men, ran upon a sunken
wreck and began to sink. There was but
one small lifeboat, and this would not hold
but half of tha paasengera. Thirteen might
be aaved, but the other thirteen would
have to plunge Into the at a and take their
In this emergency the captain, a young
Englishman, spoke up.
"How many married men are here?" said
Thirteen men atepped forward.
"Let these men get into the boat," aald
the captain. "We bachelora will try to
The married men eagerly aaarnted to thla
propoaal and in two minutes they were In
the boat and rowing for the beach. Just
then the ateamer went down and the thir
teen bachelora ' jumped Into the angry
waves.- They were willing to take their
chancea. They were willing to give every
advantage to their married brethren, who
had wives and children at home.
And did the heroic bachelors drown? Not
at all. They breasted the gigantic bil
lows Kke mermen and reached the atrand
safe and aound. And, then, pausing a mo

again to re sous the married men. Tie lat

beach and were now struggling in the surf
and. howling for help. The bachelors,
shouting reassuring words to them, got
them ashore, emptied them of sea water,
rubbed their eara, calmed their fears and
carried them home.
Thla true story proves anew a thesis that
we have been maintaining In the face of
frenxled opposition and calumny, for the
laat forty-two yeara. Briefly atated, It la
thla: That the human bachelor la the yioit
magnificent being yet produced by the" evo
lutionary procesa. Far from being tha In
ferior of the married man, he Is, we be
lieve, infinitely the latter'a superior, not
only on account of his greater measure of
liberty, hla more philosophic mind and his
escape from petty distractions, but also
because of hi obviously greater efficiency.
He Is, In a word, the complete master of
hla environment which meana the aum of

According to the current view the mar

INTEREST IJT ANDREWS SUCCESSOR
Soaae Talk ef Roaa Hill, President of
Studenta and faculty of the State uni
versity are deeply Interested In the selec
tion of a chancellor to succeed E. Ben
jamin Andrews, who recently resigned on
the advice of his physicians. Many of the
atudenta and teachera aa well are In favor
of the calling of Rosa Hill, now president
of the Missouri State unlveralty. Dr. HIII
Is a graduate of the Nebraska State uni
versity and was for a time assistant chan
cellor. The report comes from Missouri, how
ever, that President Hill Is well suited to
the people down there and while he loves
the university of thla slate and naturally
would be proud to come back aa a chan
cellor to the inaytutlon he left as a
graduate. It would require a hard pull to
get him back.
At the unlveralty. farms these days the
principal work Is the preparation for the
National Corn ahow to be held In Omaha.
Every department will have an exhibit
at that show and the faculty believes the
benefit to be derived by the people of the
state from these exhibits will be second
only to the good that will be done the
school. The teachera expect the exhibits
tq attract attention to the university farm
and thua get the farmers of the atate
more Intonated In ita work. And. of
course, the more Interest there Is taken In
the farm work the more benefit will the
people of the atate receive.

outdoing themselves this week In rushing

BUILDING SHIPS OF STONE
Small Seairolaa- Vessels Coastrarted
of Concrete hy am Insealaa
One of the latest uses to which con
ciete haa been put ia the construction c!
small seagoing vessels. Experiment made
by nn Italian. Slgnor Gabelllnl, satisfied
iiim that the material would serve foi
boats, both large and small. He strengthens
the concrete with bars of metal, following
the precedent established in the construc
tion of houses and other buildings, and
en t ng the advantages which he Is said to
hi ve discovered In this work Is thst his
hulls have a beautifully amooth exterior,
thus reducing the friction, which is hardly
credible, and that there ia so little weai
and tear thai the coat rf maintenance Is
Insignificant, which is also rather hard
The proposition Is Ingenious, but wlillt
not necessarily absurd it msy not stand
the test of time. Concrete can be niacin
to float, of course, tnd here an J then
pei haps, wood may be so scarce and su-ol
plates so expensive as to give It an econo
mlcal advantage, but it la doubtful If a
rigidity like that of granite or marbl.j la
desirable In the products of marine archi
tecture. A concrete vessel might be moro
readily rruahed or pictured by a cl
llalon than a hull posaeaslr.g some elasticity
The origin of the Gabelllnl plan is not
fisrlosed. P'Sflhly It was suggeatel by
oi.e recently adopted for the construction
of piers .and credited to an Ameilein
army ergmeer, Major W. V. Judson. The

beaet with difficulties, but accordingly -it
haa been proposed to make them hollow,
launch them so that they will stay right
side up, and tow them to their destination
