".InVtb kreatprotperoue year of
lJ'0 ipmaa'iaaued. permits for the
building of 9l dwellings at an aggre
gate coat of 11,718,059; In 1911 its
people built 748 dwellings for Sl,
?30,050, '.The average shows that
some very , modest . homes . were
founded. At the same time ' Other
homes costing high 1 up ' in the five
figures were built, Omaha people of
all. classes and degrees of circum
stances are rapidly becoming a home
owning people. Perhaps the remark
able Increases shown In the business
and capital of our building and, loan
associations is an index to that.-
But we' have reached the point 1n
Omaha where our homes, large 'and
small, characterize the city. , . t(hey
are uniformly well built and well kept
and make an abiding- impression upen
the stranger wbd takes the time to go
over any , of our residence districts,'
The fortunate thing is that no one
part of the- city has been built up or
beautified to the exclusion of 'another
part.' We. doubt If this U so largely
true of any other city ,ln the west.
All sections seem to be cuilding alike,
engaged, as it were, in a' wholesome
rivalry to see which can achieve the
best results. . . , . .
.This enormous amount of 'home
building going on without cessation
all, these , years gives the' aspect of
newness, to our residential' districts.
And to deepen the Impression of this,
the general effort to beautify the
home. In the outer' surroundings lni
streets, 'boulevards and Jaynis,,hai a
vital effect. Altogether, from, the
humble cottage of the wage earner to
the most Imposing 'residence of the
capitalist, a. uniformity of self and
Civic pride Is apparent, making on the
whole a spectacle 'for borne comfort
and beauty that Is not easy to match.
'Such ambitions and attainments
cannot help but show themselves in
the making of a better, happier-people
and city. Centering .time '-and
money on the building and .maintain
ing of the home Is laying the effort
at the very root of righteous living,
enriching the soil of habit from which
stable character le bound 'to spring.
The Call of Humanity.
The Amerlcan!,4)eople. are . making
some headway toward the conquest
of -tuberculosis and some other
forms of insidious' 'disease". They
hav done touch to reduce, death , by
accident and violence. But so much
remains to be done - In both ( lines
thfft 'our efforts thus" far seem 'very
feeble.'., ""; ' ...'",
One of the big life insurance com
panies "has called 'attention through
one of its publications to a few
pertinent f aots in ' this ' connection.
For inatance.i in, commending our
manifest grief over the Tltani's
destruction of 1635 lives, It-reminds
us that 1,731 lives are wasted every
weekj by violence in the United
States, 2,835 lives are wasted every,
week by ; tuberculosis in, short,
1,780 live? . are Jost every day. by
preventable causes. Or, it says, "An
American dies every minute from a
preventable cause," , . , ,
i It goes after American cities for
caring more for a low tax rate than
they , do, for a high death rate and
Urges the importance of employing
'efficient ' health ' off leers. This, of
course, is. important, but there are
Other , ways in . which we need to
rouse ourselves to this supreme and
solemn .obligation.", Humanity makes
ha louder' call than tor reform that
lboka to. the conservation of human
life. - We vaunt s our superior gov-
tmment and rightly bo, but this
greatest -of, governments', as John
Mitchell says, , is killing three men
to any European government's one.

i Olympics and Americans.
' ; A ship loaded with lusty American-
youth Is steaming towards Stockholm,
where the'.- youngsters - will compete
with others of their years in the most
elaborate athletic exhibition ever
stagsd; :The young men,' '.who are
going from this country are the very
cream- of its youtbr ao far as athletic
ability is' concerned.- Each has been
chosen because of his established
ability to outdo all phersat bis par
ticular feat. The choice was made as
tjie result Of open competition, and
without any 'doubt it has fairly col
lected the' ablest of all the r unners,
hampers. viuUeri' weight, throwers,
swimmers,- riders, marksmen, and
others of like bent, who represent the
great out-of-doore ganjea of' the coun
try. ' Tbat they will ably represent
their country is certain, and that the
outcome will see 'Americans' again vic
torious is confidently xpected.
i This ship load of expertly developed
muscle and nerre ts Interesting first
because." it affords an excellent reply
to theeharge that Americans-are too
much absorbed' in money-making to
give attention to development on' lines
that have but little to do with busi
ness. These young mn are for the.
most part from the great' schools of
the country, where they have baen
trained in body as well as lit mind
They are part of the educational sys
tem of the country. Bodily culture
Is as well regarded in America as else
where: ;Better,-it might be said with
out boasting, for American boys have
established some excellent records at
these great gathe.-ings of the world's
athletes, and have uniformly won the
majority of events. '
At Stockholm 'the. meeting will be
the representatives of all the Euro
pean nations who have clung (o racial
or tribal distinctions-with representa
tives, of a race that has amalgamated
the peoples of all the world. Should
victory again rest with the American
team, the vanquished may-find com
fort in the thought that the roots of
the winning race lie deep in the stock
of the old world.
Nebraska, has a representative on
the team; and. may soon -be .called
upon to bail one of Its native sons as
a world champion.
Profession; Not a Trade.
Undertakers have good reasons for
Insisting that theirs is more of a . pro
fession than commonplace business.
Ever since the uplift of the human
race thrilled the hearts and inspired
the energies of, philanthropists, - the
undertaker haa valiantly fought in
the rear guard wtth the goods. He
has shown discriminating taste be
tween the rich and the poor, regret
fully t-ed away the worthy , cut
down i'r ! ie bloom of youth, and Joy
fully tucked t away the mossback
where the bandwagon couldn't Jar his
nerves. A business totaling $75,000,
000 a year In the United States, in
which the uplift In the cost of dying
far exceeds the advance in the cost of
living, Implies the possession of
geniuses with -talent worthy of rank
with the learned professions. The
difficulty lies-in selecting a suitable
professional designation. "Profess
ional embalmer" lacks, social attrac
tiveness, and the polite "funeral di
rector" carries an atmosphere of
gloom. Since the up-to-date under
taker has become owner and pastor
of a chapel, some modification of the
title of "reverend" would fill the bill,
retaining enough solemnity to fit the
business while muffling the sounds of
falling clods. . - ,
Value of Personal Experience.
Some ; men are never ,, educated
either by direct Instruction .or ex
perience. Others with -experience
alone ' become well educated. ' The
chief difference, of course, is in the
intellectual capacities of the two men.
Nature - does more for some than
others. To -some it gives a keen
power of perception! ' These profit by
their dally, experiences, grow in
mental stature and attain, a degree
of learning unreached by the less dis
cerning;'-"" ' - v
"Usually a man's ability to profit
by his own personal experience de
pends upon the sincerity, and the in
telligence which he brings to his- own
particular occupation," says Herbert
Croly. But he allows further on tor
this difference In mental equipment.
Another way of putting it is to "ob
serve and then think" if you would be
educated." The fact is the average
man .can get a f air education out of;
bis daily contact with the world If
he will, If he has the ability to profit
by his experiences.
"Every lesson the past has taught
has cost a life," says an old orator
Submissive humanity bows In obed&
ence to the penalty, but how traglt
If the lesson is missed and we fail to
get the profit after such a dreadful
toll. Ho man can aford not to "cash
in" every experiment and experience
he meets. Along the line of personal
experience lies personal discipline,
lies, in fact, character, or the way to
build v It. No man need fret for op
portunities who is alert to seize and
make the most of all that come to
. . - Building Better.
The admonition of The Bee that
more care be paid to the quality of
buildings erected in the city has
fallen on attentive ears, it the word
that comes ' from the city council
chamber is accurate. The commis
sioners are awake to the conditions
described, and the desirability of such
improvements as will make for the
better safety of the city as far as
danger from fire is concerned. Rea
sonable Steps to secure the better kind
of buildings for the city are assured,
and it is not unlikely that good will
come to all from the suggestion that
is being so promptly acted upon.
. Other problems or equal weight are
pressing for solution. None of them,
perhaps, are so immediate as that of
hewer and stricter regulations to gov-
em the, building operations, but all
must eventually be met, and it is not
too. early to begin the consideration
of them, that a solution may be ac
complished more readily when the
time comes to act. One of the first
that will be pressed for consideration
is the matter of the downtown sewer
system.. Omaha .haa .entered upon
what has been called '.'the sky-scraper
age," and with It has come the prob
lem of. ho V , to take care of these
buildings.' ' Since the sewers were
planned; the business part of the city
has hot .only been almost wholly re
built, with ; larger structures than bad
been contemplated, but it has also
been extended so that what was resi
dential property, but a short time ago
Is now well within the business dis
trict. All of this Increase in growth
has had,e'dlrect effect In adding to
the demands . upon the system of
drainage," and the problems of how to
make the existing system adequately
accommodate the new conditions have
taxed th,ingenulty"cf the engineers
and architects. s
the matter has, been presented to
th council In such form as to demand
attention .It Is simply a problem in
city building, and as such It must
have careful consideration. While

A Few Horses and Mules Left.
Every -bV and then someone be
comes pessimistic about the amazing
multiplicity of automobiles among
the people 8nd about how they are
rapidly putting the horse out of com
mission. -'Doleful tales are , told of
how folks are squandering money
they cannot afford on these luxuries.
'. Yorlr. county, one of the wealthy
and progressive centers of Nebraska,
with a population in 1910 of 18,721,
furnishes" some statistics which
ought to give a Bllver lining to the
picture' and dispel some of this
gloom. Since August 1, 1911. York
county people have bought 158 auto
mobiles and since July last they have
taken ' out 505 licenses, showing
something as to the number of ma
chines there. The aggregate as
sessed valuation of these autos 18
The same county has 13,805
horses, or. at least, the assessor could
find that many, and they have an ag
gregate assessed valuation of $1,260,
250; 1,468 -mules, with an assessed
valuation of (167,605.

Victims of, sentimental fads run
from one extreme to the other. The
governor of Arkansas has released
all the convicts In the state peniten
tiary because the building is reported
to be unfit for convicts. Two of the
number turned loose were convicted
of capital crimes and sentenced to
hang. The excuse offered for disre
garding the rights of society to pro
tection frort lawbreakers is well
calculated to press the movement
for depriving state executives of the
power of pardon. The difficulties,
not to speak of the cost, of securing
convictions . in criminal cases fur
nishes ample reason for denying to
any one offtclal the power to nullify
the verdicts ol courts and Juries.
Out of every tragedy some good
springs. . The Titanic disaster al
ready has wrought vast reforms for
the safety of ocean going travelers.
Not only Is live-saving equipment suf
ficient for . passengers and crew in
stalled, but some of the lines have
placed two captains on each steam
ship, so that one may be on duty at
all hours.; New officers have, been
appointed whose, duties are to con
serve the welfare of the crew, steer
age passengers and passengers of
the second and third class. Equip
ment, watchfulness and forethought
are the keynotes, of steamship man
agement this year.
,, Flrat of the progressive policies
which is touching . the; pocketbook
conscience; of tWisconsin'8 plain peo
pie promises to be Short-lived. The
state income tax law takes a stated
amount of income of single persons
over $800, and from tnarrled per
sons whose Incomes are; over $1,200.
But everybody with an income of
$56o or over a year must make a
return to the assessor. Strenuous
objection to the searching features
of th law is converting progressives
Into reactionary repealers.
Frederic Thompson, partner of
the late Elmer S. Dundy of Omaha
In founding Luna Park at Coney
Island and the New York Hippo
drome, has filed in a Brooklyn court
a petition in bankruptcy, showing
liabilities of $664,854 and assets of
$7,831. 1 The difference represents
fire losses chiefly, with incidental
Joy riding during business hours.
John D. Rockefeller differs little
from the average mortal in viewing
with alarm the activities of the tax
assessor. But his protests carry
more weight. A . mere hint from
the oil king cut the valuation on
his Cleveland home from $1,121,270
to 1983,850, the tax board ruling
that the "scenery" of well kept
grounds was not taxable.
