The keynote of the Fourth of July
Is too often drowned out by the bed
lam of dangerous and destructive
fireworks, which really hare no sig
nificant relation to the day. Many
a youth grows up with far lees notion
of the Fourth as the anniversary of
the nation's independence than of the
day that gives Tent to a peculiar
genius for noise-making and potential
tragedy in these late years highly
commercialized. Celebrations are all
very well, but the day will come, no
doubt, when Americans shall wonder
that they ever indulged In or per
mitted the kind of so-called cele
brations long observed though, hap
pily, being done away with.
For the peace of mind and the
safety, of life and limb, to say noth
ing of the pocketbook, of all people
alike, it Is to be hoped the advent is
near of a rational form of Independ

sons from entirely forgetting what
the Fourth of July means, while at
the same time accomplishing all the
other beneficent purposes that go
with a patriotic celebration.

After purchase proceedings cover
lng more than nine years Omaha has
finally coma into possession of the
water works at a price which, if sug
gested at tha outset, would have
stifled all desire to buy. To an un
prejudiced observer the result would
seem to ba much more of a triumph
for the water company than for the
city. Whether or not there ia any
"cause for public jubilation, however,
It seems to as that the keynote must
be for the city to make the best of

forts of the Water board, has proved
What is now imperative is to
bring the plant aa soon ss possible

ten years no improvements or ex

those necessary for upkeep in first

must ba met along all lines of pub
lic service if It is to progress as it
should. Only broad-vlsioned fore
sight and good management can
solve the problems ahead, and It
goes without saying that we want no
repetition of costly blunders.
Now for Better Business,
Now that both national conven

Run up Old Glory!
Let It blsis
In red and white s gainst the sky
And tell the story of ths days
When hearts ware stout and hopes
were high. .
Ferret the dally tights of greed,
Forget the struggle, the dismay,
Of facing cruelty and need
Run up Old Glory for the day!
Run up Old Glory!
Think of all
The eld flag means to you and me.
Of how the blast of freedom's call
Shook out Its folds from sea to sea;
Red with the blood that It has cost,
White with the souls of thsm that
Today by laughing breeses tossed
It whispers of a nation's pride. (
Run up Old Glory!
Fling it forth
And feel anew the country-call
That thrills east, west and south and
And has Its words for one and all
Run up Old Glory-fling it far
