Crop rilarei Hare Value
Adversity generally brings its own
recompense and so crop failures, par-
tial or in whole, are of value as teach
ing people the lesson pf thrift and
economy. This year In certain sec-
tlons pf the country some crops will
not be up to normal, though we seem
to have got past sucn a thing as a
complete crop failure. Already there
is ample evidence to prove that not
only farmers, but others are going to
derive much profit from this partial
failure, profit, which may not be sub
ject to computation In dollars and
cents, but which, nevertheless, has an
Intrinsic money value.
Continuous bumper crop seasons
have enriched farmera and others, but
at the same time they have made them
a little less thoughtful of the tomor-
row. Money has been spent for many
things not altogether needed on the
farms, and banks nave been exceed-
Jngly generoua with their loans. Now
they art drawing in very decidedly
on that policy, while farmers are likely
to spend only wnat money tnis year
tbey need to spend. It should hot be
desirable to pursue tne lines or
frugality to the limit ot crippling any
form of legitimate business, but it Is
pot crippling business to discourage
waste or excessive expenditures.
Nothtng has done as much to bring
about scientific, intensified methods
pf farming aa crop failures. They
have driven farmers and scientists to
the necessity of devjslng means of in-
creasing outputs. . They have led to a
better system of treating the soil,
selecting the seed and harvesting the
product, as well as marketing it. The
old way of farming was to plow, sow
and depend oa the rain and sun to do
the rest. Today we are producing
many fold more per acre with com per a-
tire Indifference to toe sun and the
rain; we are going to the soil, with
con-hwhlch we hare become more or less
acquainted, and treating It In such
ways as to compel it to give us what
it has. And this never would hare
been brought about so speedily and
successfully without crop failures.
Governor Shallenberger will deceive
no one but Himself in nis latest

The animus of the present outburst

effort on part of Shallenberger to
strengthen himself against Dahlman In
the primary fight. Several weeks ago
the . governor delivered himself of a
spectacular "warning" to Omaha's au-
support at the primaries In Omaha and
Douglas county. It Is, therefore, his
plan to go before the state and parade

A POPULAR POLICY.
Whoop of Joy lor Preateet Tair
Two Months Yacatloa Flan.
One of the Taft pollclea which will be
universally approved is that of two months'
vacation for everybody. The president
could not have chosen a better time than
the end of July to promulgate xni at
tractive proposition nor a better place than
Bar Harbor, where two months is counted
only a short vscatlon.
It is true that midsummer I th only
time when the" denizen of war Jtiamor
are called upon to exert themselves, but
that illustrates all the better the merit
of the general proposition. It i expected,
of course, that during the two months' sus
pension the Innkeepers, boatmen and gen
eral purveyors should continue te work;
but they can take thoir holiday at any
other time of year. If they can confine a
year's work to two or three month the rest
of u might get it into ten.
At the more leisurely pace of former
generations, the human machinery easily
ran fifty weeks In the year; now we run
so fast and run down so soon that w need
at least two month in the twelve to "tank
up." Since not all of u earn enough in
ten month to last us for twelve,' or can
easily be spared so long from our places
In the general organisation, the only truly
economical plan would be for us ail to
atop together. A few vwould have to keep
on working to provide for pur dally per
sonal needs, but that is a mere detail.
Think what a want of futile energy might
be spared if we all gave up the pretense
of working and carrying on business
The vacation must be simultaneous to
