No Such Hurry.
Wild talk is already being In
duigou by mouthy bun moosers
about keeping up tho fight to put
tho republican party In tho scrap
heap, and they are said to bo laying
plans for tho future designed to con
tinue and porpetuato tho spilt in the
republican party, which Is the dem
ocratic hopo and solace. In this
the promoters will have stimulating
encouragement from democratic
sources, becauso tho democrats
would llko nothing better.
All we have to say at tho present
moment Is that thoro is no such
hurry for Immediate action. Tho
part of wisdom would be first to take
an Inventory of political stock in
hand bo as to know more approx
imately Just what material remains
outfildo of tho democratic camp, and
In whose "possession it is. This is
particularly truo with reforonco to
Nebraska, where, according to the
returns so far In, tho republicans
have done as well, It not better, this
year as they did In tho presidential
election four years ago.
Nebraska and Illiteracy.
Nebraska has boasted for many
years of having, according to tho con-
bub, tho lowest percentage of Illiter
acy of any state In the union, and for
,thls prestige oven now It has but few
closo competitors. Doubtless many
factors have contributed to this most
deslrablo exhibit, but several suggest
themselves as moro salient.
First, and foremost Is the fact that
tho llttlo rod school house was
practically carried along with thom
by the pioneers who settled this
Btnto, and tho opportunity to obtain
at least tho rudlmonts of an educa
tion has been constantly presented to
ovcry Nebraska boy and girl. With
an Intelligent population appreciat
ing tho value of education, and will
ing and eager that tho growing gen
eration may enjoy tho benefits of
good schooling, It follows that stead
fast Improvement and progress havo
boon witnessed In tho public bcIiooIh
In this stato. Not only are tho
school buildings far hotter than thoy
Wore, and abreast with all modern
roqulromonts, but the standards of
Btudy, and tho character of Instruc
tion, havo been continuously advanc
ing. Tho monoy neoded to maintain
tho Bchools and tho amount has
boon doubled and multiplied Is con
tributed by tho tux payors with good
will and less dissatisfaction than any
other rovonuo for support of tho gov
ernment. Under thoso conditions there Is no
danger of Increasing Illiteracy In Ne
braska. Indeed, with compulsory
school laws, truant officers, and
laws against child labor, It 1b almost
impossible for tho boy or girl to koop
out of school, and It will not bo long
until an Illiterate person hereabouts
will bo regarded ob a raro curiosity.

Suffragists Making Big Plans
No ono who 1b thoughtful can fall

with which American suffragists aro
laying their plans of action. Evon
boforo tho presont national and state
campaigns closed, suffrage loaders
are launching now schemes for coir

militant personnel and Its modern
method. One finds Instead ot

that thoy have recognized the Im

8ervice Affairs Noted by the
Motor Auibnlancrs,
The army medical corps has been
making experiments In the matter ot
motor ambulances. Pour were obtained
during the last year with the commer
cial truck chassis with a view to carry
ing out the policy of providing a stand
ard commtrclat truck on which the am
bulance body might be mounted, it Is
found that the department erred on the
side ot strength and durability and se
cured trucks which were too heavy for
the apparatus contemplated. The ex
perience gained by the department In
this respect, however, has been of value.
The next truck to be secured will be
lighter, and It Is thought the tests will
show more . satisfactory results. Tho
first trucks purchased are of superior
typo, and it Is proposed to turn them
over to the quartermaster corps for use
in ordinary trucking work.
Lift for Hnllsted Men.
The War department recently sub
mitted to the comptroller of the treas
ury the question as to whether or not,
under the provisions of tha last army
appropriation act, enlisted men of the
army on discharge aro entitled to sleep
ing car accommodations from the place
of discharge to the place of enlistment,
or to such other place wtthln the conti
nental limits of the United States as they
might select, tho distance not being
greater than from the place ot discharge
to the place of enlistment. It previously
had been held by the comptroller that
an enlisted man, when retired, may re
ceive transportation in kind to his home
and sleeping-car accommodations. Con
struing the last act on .the subject, the
comptroller holds that the term "trans
portation In kind" Includes sleeping-car
accommodations, and that the same may
bo furnished under such regulations ns
tho secretary of war may prescribe.

Ueneral Wood says no. What ground has
he for saying so? At tho time lie
was boosting fortifications on tho Paclflo
coast. And he might point to Mexico
and to North Africa, where Italy and
Turkey raised "hell" In this way, and
also to the Balkans, where a similar state
Is achieved. But do these examples make
ugalnst the general trend of development?
Why Is It chlmorlcal to hopo for arbi

tho other. Ought this to bo more Impos

It has been more than two generations
since we appealed to this ancient rello
ot barbarism between Individuals. Men
had to fight duels tor fancied or real
wrongs. But our clvUlxatlon has .out
grown this. No one now thinks that un
less a man stands up to be shot at his
honor Is stained. That standard Is still
maintained to a degreo In Germany and
France. But that plainly Is a survival
of the military spirit. The spirit that
would have a nation armed to tho teeth

shall show readiness to die on what has
been called "the field of honor." There

It Is reported that the toe of the shoe

that the instep is too low The board

This command went on a practice march

result of this test a Held shoe was

Xerr Supply Corps.
The new army supply corps began Its
career under the provisions of the act of
August 24, on November 1. Tho consoli
dation of the quartermaster's, subsistence
and pay departments were prescribed In
general order No. S3 from the War de
partment, amplified by Instructions gov
erning the procedure of supplies, en
gagement of services and pav ot the
army, embodied In a circular Issued by
tho chief of the quartermaster corps this
week. There are some details to be ad
justed concerning the work outside of
Washington, but the off loo organization
was in working order, as prescribe.! by
law on November 1. That organization
consists of five general iivl lions devoted
respectively to administration, flnnnce
and accounting, supplied, construction
.and repair, and transportation. An In
teresting featuro of the no a- Instructions
relates to the payment of officers rnd
enlisted men. Under section 3 of the
act approved August 24, 1312, It Is pro
vided that such duty or duties as aro
now required by law to bo performed by
such officer or officers of the quarter
master corps as the secretary of war may
designate for the purpose. Therefore, thp
quartermaster corps will have charge
tho supply and distribution ot and nc
counting for funds for tho payment of
the army. The chief quartermastpr of a
command, under the direction of his
commander, will be responsible for tho
payment of troops of the command, In
accordance with tho. provisions ot army
regulations 1277, 1910. Troops will be ru'd
as soon aa practicable after the close of
each month unless circumstances pro
vent. The recent death of General Nogl In
Japan showed the survival ot an ancient
custom that demanded suicide on. such
occasions. But even Japan Is far enough
along to sot Us face against It, while
tho world simply looks at it for what It
Is a notion no further civilized than sim
ilar ones that dictate death and torture
among African tribes. If Japan can out
grow, as It Is outgrowing, tho notion of
suicide on special occasions, and If Eng
land and this country can outgrow duel
ling, what will prevent the whole world
from oUtgrowlng tho notion that It Is
necessary to lntorrupt the peaceful course
of development, destroy lives, ruin prop'
erty, devastate the work ot generations
of- toll. Instead of submitting the cause
of It all to a tribunal which shall appor
tion blame and praise between tho two
in dispute and make the awards tuat
reason and not passion, fairness and not
force,-shall find to be Just?
It seems to us that the advocates of
perpetual war find themselves harder
orlven each year. Tho logic of human
development Is against their position. Na
tlons will reach tho stage In time that
Individuals In the most enlightened na
tions have reached that It Is worse than
folly to kill one because two differ on a
subject.- Those that plead for universal
peace may not live to see it. But the
realization grows clearer, and as surely
as human development expands, as It
has done on the whole, so surely the time
will come when tho thought of war will
pass away, and the enormous and crush'
lng waste of Industry that Is lost in pro
paring for It will be conserved to make
prosperity greater and more general.

Free from the heat of the summer days,

press are gone.

In peaceful easo and Joy,
Not fierce delights of tho summer's glow.

But pleased content which the longer

And the merry bands go out
From the city's dust to the country's
To wander all about.

Then come back In a pleased fatigue.
With October's rich ripe spoil.
