The proper celebration of tho flf-'
tieth year of statehood for Nebraska, j
which occurs III tho winter of 1917,1
Is nl randy a subject for discussion,
tho most insistent suggostlon being
that we should utlllzo tho occasion to
hold an exposition of state resources.
Tho Boo agrees that the semi
centennial should bo commemorated
in a manner befitting its importance,
and that tho obsorvanco should in
clude features to make it statewide.
Whether an exposition, such as is
proposed, should bo a part of the
celebration, however, wo aro not so
cortaln. Not that Nebraska could
not get togotiier a creditable oxhlblt
of its own resources, but tho San
Francisco exposition and tho Han
Diego exposition will Interveno, with
ptobably others on tho calendar,
which may produce a surfeit of this
sort of thing.
Two years ago Mexico celebrated
Its centennial anniversary by pagean
try and parades, but moro chiefly by
erecting and dedicating historical
monumonts, new school buildings
and charitable institutions on moro
pormanont and useful Investments of
their money. Porhaps Mexico has
set us an example worth following.
Statistics employed in the nation

dicate that the church sends out 92
per cent of the associate charity
workers now engaged in this coun

claims distinction as the loader In
the moral reforms nnd uplift move

that all thoso enterprises aro car

as, of courso, thoy are not.
In oplte of this general awakening

of tho church, census statistics fur

One consequence of tho'nddptlon of
ono of tho amondmontH Jijst ongrnftod
on tno Nobraska constitution will be
to cut short by half thV) tlrUO for tho

activity In twonty dayn.

Tho popular emphasis being laid
upon scientific salesmanship as n pro
requisite to mercantile success Is np
predated by business firms perhaps
for soltlsh roasons, nnd yet the bene
fits aro available to tho employe alert
to ombraco them. Tho scientific
salesman will sharo all advantages
with hla employer. Merchants are
sure to increase inBtead. of diminish
their intorost and efforts along this
line, for tho pnrposo is most apropos.
One Of the best assets nnd adver
tisements a business house can ha'yo
Ib a satisfied customer. Next, then,
are tho salesmen who work for satis
faction among tholr purchasers.
Therefore, It would seem that tho
clerk who alms at selling a man
what ho wants more than inducing
him to buy something ho does not
want is In the long run the valuable
elork and the scientific salesman. For
tho sake of making a big snlo many a
clerk thinks ho has scored a triumph
If ho run pack a customer with a lot
of goods he neither needed nor de
sired and will later regret buying.

The Abomination of Falsehood.
Solomon named six things the Lord
hated and a seventh, which also was
an abomination unto Him:
A false witness that speaketh ilea and
he thai noweth discord among brethren.
Tho Lord, Himself, had established
a commandment against this pest in
the law he gave Mosos at Sinai which
thunders on down through the ages:
Thou ahalt not bear false witness
against thy neighbor.
As hateful today as then as
nbomlnnble, Confidence undermined,
lovo and respect lost, friendship sun
dered! How often aro theso tho re
sults of tho slnous sin of art fill lying,
of idle or petty gossip by him "that
sowoth discord nmong brethren."
Tho civil law. punishes certain forms
of falso witness libel, slander, per
jury, and if it Inflicted a penalty for
this deliberate mischlcf-maklng lying
it would not bo far wrong.
This is ono of tho commonest evils
of tho day, this habit of speaking ill
of a fellowman. It 4s difficult to
keep on speaking ill without speak
ing falsely, and if nt first a moral
scruple restrains, the outright lie
habit soon wears away all con
scientious veneering and sears tho
mind with a callous scar that docs
not feel tho prick of self-incrimination,
thd monitor of an accusing con
fidence. That stage reached, the
rest of tho way ls all down hill.
A Pernicious Practice.
A wise enforcement of the Juvenile
court rulo ngnlnst boys nnd young
mon loafing on street corners at night
should produce good results. Such
a regulation Is badly needed In parts
of tho city, whoro youths congregate
and mako themselves obnoxious to
pnssors-by, particularly girls and
women. This practico should bo
stopped and tho Juvenllo officers
seem to bo the propor ones to stop It.
Boys always have and always wl
run tho stroots, lo nn extent at night,
but in cities full of temptations thoy
should not uso a llcensa to the detri
ment of good behavior and other
folks' poaco. It 1b to bo hopod this
project of tho Juvenile court will bo
carried into permanent practice until
It really becomes effectual. It would

Thq. topography of Omaha, in faqt, ls
undergoing constant change.
Ono must be Btruck by tho fact, as
ho vlowa so much of this excavation,
that It has required tho dint of hard
est effort .to hul.ld this bustling Wost
orn metropolis hero upon thoso old
jlllUs. Bocauso of theso -obstacles wo
have a city markedly strong and
durable Omaha builds fast, but ex
ceeding well. Steadily and much
moro rapidly than ono may Incllno to
think, it is supplanting tho trailer
Btruct'uros of other days with nioro
modern and mnssivo buildings.
Thus far tio chango from warm
woathor t6 mildly cool autumn haa

orations. 'Contractors and workmen
Bcom to havo 'all they can do, and if
men are unemployed In Omaha It

very sovoro, for thoro ls bo much
work under way that needs doing.
Six. Great Corn States,
Accord Lug to the government's lat
est estimate the country boa produced
this year 3,109,137,000 bushel's of
corn. Comparing the cropB by states
for the last four years, of which this
ls tho largest, we find that Nebraska
maintains Us place among tho six
leading corn-producing states. It was
fifth In 1909 and 1911, fourth In
1910 nnd ls sixth this year, with a
yield larger than In auy of theso four
years except 1910. Iowa goes into
flrut place this j-ear with a very small
margin over Illinois, which led in tho
other three years, with Iowa in sec
oud place, Missouri Is third this
year, as It has been slnco 1909, when
it was fourth with Indiana third
Indiana this year ranks fifth, as It
did In 1910, ranking fourth in 1911
Kansas is fourth this yeur, which
is its highest rank in thoso four
years. In 1909 and 1911 it dropped
out of the six gtoat corn states on
tlroly, being displaced both tiroes by
Ohio and In 1910 It barely came into

.Nebraska's sUndln Is much better
than this. An Interesting feature o
tho governments report is tho exten
sion of oorn-growing in the poulh
Toxas, for Instance, which last year
produced only 09,350,00 bushels,
this year raised 163,300,000 bushels;
Oklahoma produced 101,878,000
bushels aB against 3C,88S,000 last
year, whllo Kentucky harvested 109,
440,000 bushels this year, Tonnesseo

bushols. .As new land is opened up
and Intensive methods applied to
farming, theso figures will bo multi

years and Nebraska, with such vast
dominions yet untitled for corn, will
rise much closer to the top of this

Our amiable democratic contem
porary indulges in a hysterical
scream over nn unfortunate develop
ment of a murder case in nprth Ne
braska in which tho defendant, a
woman, escaping on tho second trial
on tho plea of insanity, is being held
In the insane asylum instead of the
penitentiary, nothwlthstnndlng the
omphatlc assertion of the asylum
authorities that sho is not now, and
novor was, Insane. Tho animus of
tho outburst of indignation ls found
in the attempt to draw a moral
against granting now trials In crim
inal cases on "technicalities," and
laying tho blamo on tho supremo
court, rnther than on tho jury that
held tho Insanity plea good.
Tho trouble with both the promise
and tho conclusion is that they rest
upon n porvorsion of tho facts, as
referenco to tho record of tho case
in the Bupremo court reports will
disclose. Tho bald assertion Is made
that tho Bupremo court said "that in
its opinion 8ho.wns guilty and sane,
and tho penalty was not too groat."
This is not a true statement, for no
whoro Is it borne out by the opinion
of tho court rendered by Judge Root
and concurred in by flvo of the
seven Judges. Quito tho contrary,
tin. court holds that an erroneous in
struction of the trial Judge com
pletely barred tho jury from consider
ing tho question of inaanity, which
was tho only defense open to tho ac
cused, thero being no dispute as to
other circumstances. As every ono
knows, tho right to Plead insanitv ls
not a technicality, but-a substantial!
ogal right. Tho only expression of
bollof in tho. prisoner's sanity comes
in tho dissenting opinion, concurred
in by only two Judges, which cannot
bit called an opinion of tho court.
This Is a case whoro if Justico has
miscarried, as it appears to have
dono, the fault must bo lodged, not
nBa,nst tlo supremo Judges, but
against a Jury of tho prlsonor's neigh
bors, who, manifesting tho usual
compaBalon for n woman, gavo hor
tho benefit of tho doubt.'
