Fourth and a safe and sane Decoration
Society on the Farm.
Some Chicago society women are
taking to the fad of farming. Out on
the wide-spreading acres of the North
Shore and the fertile uplands of Oak
Park they are getting close to nature
by way of the soli. Some of them are
raising violets, others cabbage and cu
cumbers, while yet others are pursu
ing the most novel of all fashions
milking cows, or doing a little refined
dairying of their own. Then some
take to poultry raising and fruit cul
ture. Society, sometimes, hits upon sensi
ble fads. In this case the example
seems to have been set by Mrs. Bel
mont's Long Island suffragette farm,
where only maids may sow and reap,
and not even is mere man permitted
the privilege of the premises.
Wherever the Idea came from, it is a
wholesome fad. It enables the fair
ones to get a lot of out-door exercise.
which will add to their beauty and
strength, though, of course, a more
pragmatic purpose underlies Mrs. Bel
mont's scheme. She proposes this as
another way of demonstrating
woman's Independence and, in a gen
eral way, of stimulating the enter
prise of Buffragetteism.
But in any event society farming is
not to be too loudly touted for its
Plebelanism. It requires a little of
the substance that Plebeians do not,
as a rule, possess in sufficient quanti
ties, and therefore It Is quite
Patrlclan-like. A neat little fund in
the bank is needed to pursue the call
ing with anything like style and con
sistency. Society having the fund, we
shall see whether the fad becomes a
really popular one or not.
False Prophets of Peace.
A good many people, doubtless, will
take exception to much that Colonel
Roosevelt said on Decoration- day
about peace and arbitration, but When
his words are carefully studied by the
light of calm reason they reflect
mighty good common sense. It seems
to us that it was a speech that needed
very much to be made at this time and
Decoration day and Grant's tomb af
forded an excellent occasion and place
for making It.
The colonel denounced "false proph
ets of peace." He declared that "un
righteous peace is a greater evil than
war." He asserted his belief in "na
tional and International peace, but
only as the hand-maiden of justice."
He wanted peace with every nation,
but not at the expense of "our self
respect." He said he believed In arbi
tration "only on the understanding
that international slapping of faces la
What is there to any of this that
need offend the cause of world neaca
or arbitration? What part of it cannot
the real friends of peace approve? No
body will deny, surely, the possibility
of such a thing as unrighteous peace.
Lincoln, as much as he loved peace
and dreaded war, thought1! so. We
know there are false prophets of peace,
just as there are in all things human.
Who would object to condemning
them? And no. nation can afford to
buy peace with Injustice or forfeiture
This movement for world peace.'we
feel sure, is going on, and in time
human nature may reach that stage
where even universal disarmament
may become possible. But it is not yet
here. So it is folly to say that main
taining formidable resources of of-
fense and defense is provocative of
war, when it would be inviting trouble
not to maintain them.
Colonel Roosevelt was just the man
to make this speech, for no other man
has done more for actual peace, as
witness the Portsmouth treaty. He is
able, therefore, to apply his eplgram
matkal rule to his own case. "Words
are good, and only so when backed by
.Blood on the Moon.
And the plot thickens. "Aroused
by William J. Bryan's attack on demo
crats who favor a raw wool tariff,
Democratic Leader Underwood made a
statement tonight declaring Mr. Bry
an's attitude nujust and unfair."
Evidently, there is blood on the
moon in the camp of the democracy.
It may be easier now to guess why Mr.
Bryan decided to withhold his an
nouncement of Champ Clark as bis
preferred candidate for the presidency.
But what is democracy coming to,
anyway, when its official leaders
openly defy the oracle of their faith?
In Texas the Baileyites denounce him.
In Ohio Harmon refused to "stand
aside." In his own Nebraska, life-long
"home folks" drive him out of their
state convention, while down at Wash
ington a recalcitrant senate rejects his
choice of leader and now a heretofore
meekly submissive house floor-leader
and speaker spurn his dictation.
As Grover Cleveland used to say,
"Truly we have fallen upon evil
times." Is this a systematic plan to
side-track Mr. Bryan? In times past
the Clarks and Underwoods have
simply walked up, hat in hand, taken
their orders and meekly complied with
them. Now, they not only refuse to
walk up, but decline the orders when
they are thrust at -them.
But Mr. Bryan is not yet eliminated.
He laughs best who laughs last.
For the Good of the Service.
Down at Lincoln one member of the
Public Library board has Just re
signed, explaining his voluntary re
tirement with the unique reason, "for
the good of the service," as set forth
In his letter to the city council, as
For the good of the service, the under
signed respectfully tenders his resignation
as a member of the city library board. My
relations with the board have been uni
formly pleasant and this resignation Is
tendered solely because I have not the time
to devote to the work of the library which
lt Importance merits. Membership on that
board should belong to citizens whose time
la their own and who have leisure to de
vote to its multifarious duties. I have felt
all along that the work I have been able
to perform has hardly roqulted the city for
the honor which the council conferred
upon me in my selection for the place. The
library board expends approximately
$10,030 a year of the people's money, and
those who administer the funds should be
persons who have time and Inclination to
look Into every Item of expenditure care
fully and procure the moat and best that
can be had for the money.
Without even considering whether
true lnJ this particular case, ot In any
other particular case, the good of the
service . would certainly be promoted
by retirement of officials who cannot
give the public business the attention
needed. Not that a position of honor
and responsibility like membership in
the library board or in a school board
should be reserved exclusively for re
tired capitalists, or people of Inde
pendent means with their time fully
at their own disposal, but that who
ever accepts office should understand
what is expected of him and be able
and willing to measure up require
ments, even though to do so he must
sacrifice his leisure hours and incon
venience himself in many ways. .- The
man who wants to wear the badge of
honor for dress parade without doing
the work has no place in the public
A few years ago our law-makers
decided to Institute a reform that
would consecrate Decoration day In
Nebraska to the veterans of the wars
and to no others. A statute was,
therefore, enacted, whfch declares:
Any person or persons who shall, on the
30th day of May, commonly known aa
Decoration day, engage In horse racing,
ball playing or In any other game of sport
which may tend to disturb the publlo
peace on the 80th day of May shall be
guilty of a mlsdameanor, and shall be pun
ished by a fine not exceeding $100 or be
Imprisoned for not more than thirty days,
In the discretion of the court.

Some conscienceless Joker handed one to
the democratic rustics who are sreuthlng
around the departments for "disclosures''
and campaign material. A straight tip
was passed to a congressional committee
that riotous extravagance was the rule In
the Tostofflee department, culminating In
scandalous extravagance In furnishing the
office of Postmaster General Hitchcock
particularly "the Installing of the cost
liest bathroom In Washington." The dem
ocratic sleuths' were on the Job In half an
hour. Mr. Weed, the chief clerk, was asked
about It with an air which clearly Indicated
that the committee believed it had un
earthed a scandal of large proportions.
"The postmaster general has no bathroom
at all," calmly replied Mr Weed. "1 guess
you were thinking of the bathroom at the
house end of the capltol." One frightful
discovery was made, however. Mr. Weed
admitted that the mahogany waste basket
ordered to match the furniture of the post
master general's room cost tX. The com
mittee fairly gasped, and one member ex
claimed: "Well, I swan!" Mr. Weed told
the committee also that Mr. ilitchcock had
spent about $4,000 treavellng over the coun
try on an inspection tour of postoffices,
and had not charged his expenses to the
government a piece of Information which
the committee hardly welcomed.
Justice Harlan Is familiarly described in
Washington by those who know him as "a
good old scout." He enjoys life, haa a keen
sense of humor and possesses a strong and
attractive personality. He has enjoyed
playing golf until the last few years, when
his age has been somewhat ot a handicap.
It is told of Justice Harlan that one day
he was playing a match with a noted
Washington preacher, relates the "Brook
lyn Eagle. The preacher was not an expert
at the game, and his temper was sorely
tried over the fact that he plowed up the
turf almost every time he swung at the
ball. Finally In desperation he made a
particularly vicious swipe and smashed his
club. For a full half minute the preacher
stood looking at the wreck ha had caused.
Justice Harlan waited patiently until the
dominie finally glanced at him and then
be remarked solemnly:
"loctor, that Is the most profane silence
I ever listened to."
There Is another golf story about the
Justice that is not so well authenticated.
It tells how he was playing one day with
a friend who was noted for making long
drives. This man found a cow In his path,
but, not daunted by the obstacle, drove
his ball with great force in the
direction he wanted It to go. The
ball landed in the cow's mouth.
Straightway the judge's friend chased (he
cow. The startled animal turned tail and
ran, still carrying the ball. Her pursuer
began belaboring her with his club aa the
pair went racing over the links. Finally the
cow, on reaching a putting tfreen, dropped
the ball. It landed in a good position and
the golfer holed out in one stroke. Justice
Harlan followed In leisurely fashion and
made It In eight strokes, claiming the hole.
"But I made It In two," exclaimed his

Senator Heyburn of Idaho Is the most
persistent and annoying objector in the
senate. He does not like departures from
the established order. of things. During his
Bpeech on direct election of senators, ha
had ' a number of clashes with his col

alluded to the latter did not fall to call
him "the Junior senator from Idaho," with
the accent on the Junior. Heyburn thinks
that the present method of electing sen
ators by legislatures, rather than by pop
ular vote, Is Just about right.
In this connection it Is Interesting to noTe
that when he ran for congress out In
Idaho in 18K8 he was defeated. As Idaho
has only one representative, the election
was statewide. Heyburn was beaten by Ed
gar Wilson, a silver republican, by more
than 4,000 votes, although he ran on the
regular republican ticket. Four years later
Idaho sent a regular republican to con
gress by a majority of 7,7x1 over all his
competitors. The same man, Burton L.
French, came back to the present congress
with a majority of about 10,000. Senator
Heyburn, while defeated by the people for
congress, was elected to the senate by the
