Of the four great getaways to the

Kaasaa Ctty, "Omaha wu the flrat-to
attala pre-eminence which It has never
really yielded." 80 wrltaa Edward
Hiingerford In the flrst of his papers
on 'Rediscovering the West" la Harper
Weekly. Stopping the customary few
minutes to admire the "florid archi
tectural style" of the Transfer building.
Its faded floriea and historic mmorta
the writer crossed the river over "the
most profitable three-mile stretch of
track In the land,' for "beyond the Mis
souri Ilea the real west" and penned
the Impressions at Omaha and Its bib
tary territory: ' .
If you have time to waste, do not
eoaw to Omaha, It has ao provision
for the dilettante. The hotel dark shakes
his head sadly when yon demand a
Jlvller outdoor amusement than the 000
tlnusl park ran In an automobile or a
dosen holes at golf. Omaha Is a business
tows, and aha thinks and has her very
breathing In the totals of her banking
houses and her great wholesale stores.
True It Is that she has borrowed a leaf
or two from the knowledge-book of
neighboring Kansas City and started for
herself a most charitable system of parks
and boulevards. - But she boasts no Nob
Hill as yet When her elUsens get rich
they move-either east te big metro
politan cities like New Tork or Chicago,
or west to such luxurious colonies as
Pasadena or Colorado Springs. Until
then they stay at their desks and work
eighteen hour a day.
Remladed Hiss at Home.
And yet they do tell of an Omaha man
who turned his back upon the setting sun
and traveled east for two days and two
. nights. And when that journey was
done ha was In a great city by the At
lantic seaboarda city that for genera
tions has prided herself upon her ex
cesslv culture. Her townsmen took the
gentleman from Omaha well In 1
They showed him the Frog Pood and
the crooked est streets In any civilised
place on the continent They filled him
with beans and with codfish, tickled his
palate with the finest Uedford rum. He
mingled and ha browsed, and before they
were don with him his herbaria soul
"Boston Is great" h admitted, frankly.
Then In an afterthought he added:
"1 think that 1 should like to call her
th Omaha of the East"
Omaha. Ilk some other western towna
has paid within the past two decades
th full Density of her own boastfulnee.
Back In UN she thougot It exceeding
mart to announce to a Breathless and
waiting world that she had attained a
population of men) persona Th -r.st&ods
used toward ths accomplishment of that
astounding total will bear no repetition
her. It Is sufficient now to say that
th census of U0wsa accurst and tavei
her an actual population count of 102, av
a very bitter Bill. Indeed, foe th west
bank of tba Missouri. Th censes f
Ml, likewise exceeding accurate, was
better. , It showed Omaha pmssssnd of
13,(0) population and a growing, bustling,
energetic, and. above all. a truthful city. 'yrriy y.y niTrri mTTTJ tjvjtv.
That Is the lessoa that th west ha, IUAfl HA I OAlfl lUXl lfluUllo
begun to team th leak of real value
iu bald population statistic. True it Is
that Los Angeles confronts th stranger
bound toward her e-etea with 'TLosXn
geles, IMA Xjfl.ooo: 13. L0W.M": ud the
talks of that southern California town
reiterate that most specific boast at
every, possible opportunity. But Los
Angels Is Lm miles from Omaha and
might learn a deal from th town beside
the Missouri. Th more oonsBtvativ of
these western towns, such aa Portland,
to make a single Instance, do not worry
about the population reports from the
census bureau. They point with a keener
pride toward the clearing house balance
and the traffic reports of the railroads
and steamship Unas; they are even begin
ning to display such mundan things as
dean tree's, soda welfar clubs, ad
mirable dvie administrations th things
that brings administration not alone from
the hardened hearts of easterners but
from those even more state folk who come
oversets before they reach New Tork.

Into the land of tomorrow la wall begun.
Th railroad, following th fashion of
other railroads, baa begun to ravins and
rebuild Its line. Where In other days It
first wound south from th Omaha sta
tion and the great Missouri liver bridge
that connects It with Ita legal tannine
at Council Bluffs, so aa to avoid ths
great rolling hills that Una th yellow
stream, today H strikes du west from ths
station. It cuts through the tops of
th hill -slopes and strikes boldly across
the swales of th broad valley on ti
tanic embankments. This waa th work
of a genius, whom men knew a Harrl-
man, th master-bunder. But the man
who created It did not look upon him
self as a genius. He simply reckoned
It good business to spend a mar million
dollars when It might save ana hundred
thousand in fuel and other excess grade
coats In th course of a single year. And
so It waa good business but genius also-

are prone to cil' 'heavy rolling oountry."
But twenty Rules from Omaha and ths
country Is no longer rolling. Tou have

railroad stations Is novel and a complete
surprise and throughout th night that

their willingness te grant the oountrv
