In its current number. The Century
magazine, celebrates its fortieth anni
versary with an exhibit designed to
show the progress made in that time
of the illustrators' art as adapted to
periodical literature. The Ceutury is
not. the oldest of our literary maga
zines, for of its contemporaries Har
per's is older and has made concur
rent advance in press work and con
tents. But the retrospect serves to re
mind us of the wonderful transforma
tion wrought by the new engraving
processes. The Century magazine to
day Is as much ahead of what it was
forty years ago, as a Pullman each
on the modern limited train is ahead
of the car dragged over bumpy rails
by our first locomotives. Nor is the
progress in the Illustrators' art con
fined to the monthly magazines. It
extends to the pictorial weeklies and
to the high-speed dailies. A similar
collection of newspaper pictures over
as many years would be equally eye
opening. The best part of it is that
the progress already made is assur
ance of further Improvement toward
The Negative Quantity.
The negative quantity is that which
stands for denial as opposed to asser
tion, for absence as opposed to pres
ence for minus as opposed to plus.
It does not represent the aggressive,
progressive factor in anything. In
character It destroys more than it
builds up. It retards more than it
promotes. It is an element that needs
to be guarded against in every life
that alms to accomplish things worth
while. Boys and girls, young men
and young women, getting their char
acter growth and education, should be
especially watchful lest they fall into
the habit of negation. Their efforts
or influence can count for little if they
become negative quantities. The only
lives that make much of an imprint
on the world est of the positive kind;
those that really stand for something,
that can do more than merely deny.
This negative quantity Is found in
many realms. The negative sign In
algebra, for Instance, la the minus
sign. The negative la logic is the de
nial. The negative in photography Is
that first impression upon the glass
which gives ua the reverse side of the
picture, And th aegatlT la charao
ter does the same thlnR. It presents
a distorted view of lire. It reverses
Its shades and colors and offers a re
verse picture. It does not give us the
real beauty of varied tints and lines
and the true perspective. We can
Ret these only by waiting until the
negative has been transferred into the
positive the real picture.
So while the negathe has an office,
it Is a subsidiary one. It Is always
preliminary or Incidental to the main
Issue. Those kind o examples In life
are not very helpful or influential.
They lark color, they lack vitality,
courage, spine. They are nerveless
and often worthless.
For State Treasurer.
With the campaign searchlight on
crooked treasury transactions of the
past, it behooves the voters of Ne
braska to make sure that the state
money Is kept In the hands of a custo
dian both competent and honest. We
have no hesitation In recommending I
tbe republican candidate for state
treasurer, Walter A. George, who has
an unassailed reputation for integrity.
He Is a pioneer of Custer county, has
been mayor of Broken Bow, was a
delegate to the last republican na-
tlonal convention, and when he gives
his word it may be depended on. His
democratic opponent Is some one
known by the name of Hall, who
would have to be taken on blind faith.
If they want to feel sure they are
making no mistake, the voters will
mark their ballots next week for
Walter A. George for state treasurer.
Parents and the Teacher.
The average parent is quick to re
sent what may seem to be undue au-!
thority by a school teacher over a
child; quick to maintain that the
school has no right to usurp the func
tions of the home. But, on the other
hand, too many parents unconsciously
leave for the school to do precisely
what they hold it shall not do, what
they claim to be the exclusive province
of the home. In other words, many
parents of easy-going dispositions neg
lect their duties in training their chil
dren and leave them to be performed
by the teacher, if they are performed
at all. Such neglect, or courser, throws
burdens upon the teacher which she
ought not to bear, and which moral
and civil laws never intended she
should bear. It is wrong to the child,
for in time It will come to understand
the situation and take advantage of it.
The old adage of "spare the rod and
spoil the child" is not so popular to
day as it used to be because moral
suasion seems to have the upper hand
Just now as the proper system of child

ea cannot safely be entirely rele
gated, and here again arises a gross
Injustice where parents are too lenient
or indifferent and leave their work to
be done by the teachers. The laws in
many cities and states, or the school
regulations, provide that where teach
ers find corporal punishment neces
sary they must obtain parental author
ity before inflicting it and in many of
these very cases of parental neglect
of duty the authority cannot be ob
tained. Such parents are making the
work of the schools and the school au
thorities exceedingly hard, as well as
Imposing injustices upon those who
have to do with their children outside
of the school room. It Is, ofcourse,
a serious wrong to the child, for he
will have to pay the penalty for a lack
of character training In after years.
Force of the Y. M. C. A.
The Young Men's Chrifitlan associa
tion now has approximately 600,000
members, as disclosed in the triennial
report at the Toronto convention.
This represents a growth of 13 per
cent since the last convention. ' Its
lines of Influence are being extended
and multiplied even more rapidly than
its number of members.
The telling force of this great or
ganization is to be found in the cardi
nal principles upon wliich It was
founded. It came into existence to
"promote the physical, social, mental
and spiritual welfare of its members."
It has done that and is doing it. It
looks out for the whole man, not for
any mere part. It has never observed
the narrow lines of culture, which em
brace only religious thought, any
more than It has taught men how to
box or wrestle or swim, or how to act
pretty in company, or how to become
good students to the exclusion of all
their other needs. But instead It has
maintained a sane, even balance be
tween the four parts of man, seeking
through rational effort, to minister to
all of them and thus develop a well
rounded man. Its underlying and all
pervading spirit and influence have
been sound, common sense and this
Is the forte that has appealed mightily
to men of the world, of the church, of
affairs and brought the association on
to its high position of private and
public lnfluendb in this and other
countries. It is doing for young men
and boys a work, which no other In
stitution in the world even essays to
do and it is doing it well. It has men
schooled and trained In the science of
doing It and scores of them are men
of large caliber, who, In other voca
tions, might command large incomes.
The association was transplanted In
North America, at Boston and Mon
treal, In December, 1851. from Eng
land, where It sprung into being la
18 44, but Its growth for years was
slow, because, no doubt, the times
were slow and people were tardy In
finding out what it really was and
what it really might become. In ISIS
Its total membership on this conti
nent was 18,6441 la 18SS It was
154. 921: In 15(02, S .".0,4 5".. and today
It is 496,000. or substantls My half a
million. Its advance has been rapid
in the last few years, for it has
reached the place, whre its work and
influence count and are known of all
It represents a vast money invest
ment today, its total property valua
tion in America being $ (50,000,000.
The total expenditures In 190" were
$5,396,124. A slnele Young Mens

ter. It requires trained skill and
ability to operate it. It is a live place
and is doing a live work and tt"at is
why it appeals to live people. Yet we

When the people of Nebraska elect
a governor they elect him to be chief
executive of the state for two years.
Tney do not ell'f t nlm to be governor
merely while the legislature is in ses
sion, or to be governor only long
enough to sign or veto legislation on
some particular subject, but they elect
him to represent all the varied indus
tries of our people, to speak for them
officially on proper occasions, to ad
minister the Btate institutions, to su
pervise the conduct of all the state
executive offices, and to do all this not
for a week or month, but for two
whole years and until a successor is
duly elected and qualified.
In choosing between the two candi
dates who are running for governor
in Nebraska this year, therefore, the
voters will do well to consider all the
work to be done and not merely the
bare possibility that the governor may
be called upon to approve or veto a
particular law upon a single subject.
If they will do this and decide with
full appreciation of the capabilities
and qualifications of the opposing
candidates they will give their prefer
ence to Chester H. Aldrich, heading
the republican ticket.
In all of the public offices which Mr.
Aldrich has held he has performed his
duties with fidelity and efficiency and
has made good, while in none of the
offices his opponent has held has he
made a record in which anyone has
any right to take pride. In the state
senate Mr. Aldrich was a leader and
not a follower; it was a session in
which it took sharp fighting to put
through the reform laws which had
been promised to the people, and Mr.
Aldrich was on the firing line all the
time. Had that Btate senate been
made up of democrats like the demo
cratic gubernatorial nominee these
reform laws would never have been
When it-conies to going to the front
in the name of the state on public oc
casions there Is no comparison to be
made between Mr. Aldrich and his
cowboy opponent. With Mr. Aldrich
as governor no Nebraska man nr
woman would have to live in trepida
tion of always Imminent disgrace
brought upon the state by some bad
break of their executive, but one and
all would rest content that the good
name of their state was in safe hands.
Deep Ditches Make Good.
The board of five army engineers
selected by President Taft to proceed
in company with the director of the re
clamation service to investigate w?iat
had been done and what shall be
done towards completing enterprises
for which congress set aside $20,000,
000, has not yet had its full report
made public, but it has disclosed the
fact that it found that part of the re
clamaton work done or in progress
eminently successful. This of course
is an approval of the policy, it is a
vindication of the Roosevelt and Taft
methods and of the deep ditch sys
tem of reclaiming land in the west.
The deep ditch, in short, has made
good. The vast system of irrigation
projected and partially completed by
the federal government Is a monu
mental success. It has already re
deemed 900,000 acres of rich, tillable
land and turned Into the national
treasury even at this early date of ex
perimentation, $1,000,000 as fees
from water rights and another $1,
000,000 is now being collected from
the same source. The land has
proved the test of Its ability to pay
out on these Improvements. The
farmers in charge of that land have
demonstrated their ability to meet the
demands and the government knows
now, before It has distributed that
$20,000,000, that the scheme is prac
ticable and safe.
But the deep ditch and the land
have not only brought these results;
they have brought thousands of set
tlers to a new country, provided new
homes, built new communities, paved
the way to new commerce, invited
new capital to take a hand in this
great work of peaceful conquest so
essential to the healthful development
of the nation and so vast In Its op
portunities to men and women of
other lands as well as our own. Here
is the largest enterprise afloat In this
country today. Here is the actual
work of empire building. And to view
what has been done with the thought
that the movement Is only atarted,
ought to send a thrill of prlda through
every American heart.

Increased cost of living. It la doubtful If
the price of necessities of life has kept
pace with the increase of average earnings
since the civil war. Manufactured goods
were dearer then than now. but the mod
