No precautions of ours could have

A Burlesque of Necessity.
The guardian ot a 15-year-old
girl with an annual Income of $50,

judge to show that his ward cannot
"get along comfortably" on her al
lowance of $13,000 a year, and tho
judge raises the allowanco to $20,
,000, as askod. The girl, through
her gonerous guardian, shows that
her spring outfit ot clothing will
cost $1800.
What a travesty to rocelvo the
grave sanction of a court of law!
How many thousands ot girls, per
haps dependent on their own meager
resources, will read ot that and at
tempt to proportion thotr Ideas of
tho requirements for comfortable
living from that distorted basis!
Tho ovll of such prodigality Is not
so much In Its effect upon tho prin
cipal ns In Its example and Influence
upon others as vain aa this girl, but
not as able to gratify their vanity.
In tho course ot tho curront in
vestigations into tho wages and con
dltlona of working women and girls,
admittedly nono too satisfactory, it
uppoara that many of tho pooror
paid young' women might got along
better but for tholr Imprudenco In
attempting to dress ns well na oth
era who are better paid. And bo
on up tho tendency goes, until, no
doubt, many a famlnlno wago earner
and many women with husbands as
wago earners, will look to such dis
plays as that of tho rich girl and bo
influenced beforo they know It.
GarrisonVArmy Polioy.
Tho now secretary of war ovl
dently takes no stock In the illusion
of disarmament, though standing for
practical promotion of the causo of
peaco. He would promote it, Just
as tho Taft administration did, by
maintaining n strong army. Secre
tary Qarrison advocates a standing
army of not less than 90,000, which,
ho submits, is not , excessive for a
population of 110,000,000. Ab this
Ib oxpreBBod In an official statement
with the advlco of tho president. It
marks another ot the many points
ot convergence ot Wilson and Taft
policies, and probably signifies that
tho present administration, like tho
lute one, favors strong fortifications
and a largo detachment of troops on
tho Panama.
Now, It will bo lntorostlng to see
whnt tho administration's attltudo
will bo toward tho navy and tho
transparent hypocrisy ot tho last
democratic houso In rejecting tho
two-battleship bill. A strong army
and adequato navy go together. IT
Is to bo hoped that tho new presi
dent und his cabinet will throw the
weight of tholr Influence against the
small-bore politics that threaten to
sot the United States back as a naval
powor. Alhough It should, and
must, continue to lead In tho world
peace movement, the United States
can hardly depart from Us estab
lished military and naval policies
until other countries Join with us In
a mutually acceptable peaco plan.

About Tornadoes
flY OAltllKTT P. SKHVI8S.
Not since 1SS4 haH thero been such an
outburst of tornadlc ftorms an that which
occurred In the west and south last
week.
A full-fledged tornado Is the most awe
Inspiring meteor that ever sweeps
through the atmosphere. An ordinary
tempest creeps upon Its victims by more
gradual steps, galnn strength by degrees,
covers the whole country for hundreds ot
miles around with Its Indefinite shadow,
and seems only a common storm that
has developed unusual power.
But a tornado Is a kind of atmospheric
demon, whoso black, distorted form can
be seen swiftly approaching from far off,
whirling and dancing like a gigantic der
vish, and tearing up the very soil In Its
fury.
It lets down from the menacing cloud
above a huge trombe or trunk of Inky
blackness, with lightning playing abovn
It, and, whizzing with the speed of a
buzz saw, It plows a path through a
forest; tears away tho front of a gravol
bnnk with the force of a hydraulic jet;
scoops up the contents of a pond to the
very mud; sittks away creeks. 1
It demolishes barns, haystacks, houses, j
churches, scattering their remnants over
a square mile of territory; snatches up
cattle, horses, sheep, and even men nnd
women sometimes dashing them to death
and sometimes giving them a wild ride
through the air only to set them down at
last uninjured.
Tho path of a tornado Is from 100 to 600
yards wide, and the length of its course
may vary from one or two up to fifty
miles. Almost Invariably It moves to-1
warn me uorineast, with a speed of
from twenty to fifty miles, an hour. The
center, where the destructive "power Is
greatest, occupies from one to Mvc min
utes In passing over a given point. On
account of the uniformity in the direc
tion of the movement of tornadoes. It is
not difficult to get out of their track If
they can be seen, or heard, coming a
quarter or a half hour In advance.
A single tornado may level a half dozen
villages and plough a track of destruc
tion across two or thrco countlos.
But when, as happened last week, a
horde of these "twisters" breaKs upon the
face of the land thero Is hardly any
meteorological disaster so serious as that
which they produce.
I have, just been looking at a scries of
charts prepared by tho government in
Its studies of the great outbreak of tor
nadoes on February 19, 1SS4, to which the
present ono may bo compared, and they
rcsemblo military maps of an Invaded
country, aiross which a dozen armies
are marching on parallel lines.
From the Mississippi valley across Ken
tucky, Tennessee, Mississippi, Georgia,
South Carolina and North Carolina the
tornadoes rushed side by side, new ones
breaking out as the earlier ones were
dissipated, until their raid had almost
reached the Atlantic ocean.
Tornadoes always occur In the south
eastern quarter of a cyclonlo disturbance.
Such a disturbance may be from 1.000 to
2,000 miles broad., producing nothing but
ruins and moderate winds over most of
Its area, but In tho southeastern quad
rant, where warm southerly winds are
brought Into contact with cold winds
from tho northwest, whirls are set up,
as eddies appear at the edge of conflict
ing ourrents of water, and these, If the
contrasts of temperature are extreme,
quickly develop Into tornado funnels.
In every case the direction of the whirl
of a tornado Is from right to left, the
same as that pf all cyclonic winds In
tho northern hemisphere. In the coso of
the genernt winds this Is readily ex
plained as a result ot the rotation of the
earth on Its axis. In 'the southern hem
isphere the winds turn from left to right
Some of the performances of tornadoes
seem Incredible. Occasionally the whirl
ing trombo Is withdrawn towaru tne
clouds, skipping a threatened point only
to dart, down again with vicious speed
and redoubled power. Small objecta like
loose nails, ore driven Into trees or board
fences. Victims sometimes have their
clothes stripped off and torn to -sheds. '
On one occasion a corn-stalk was driven
partly through a door, "recalling the ex
periment of shooting a candlo through a
board." A four-Inch gcantllng, ten feet
long, was driven by a tornado three and
n half feet into tho ground.
Not Infrequently there Is a noticeable
disturbance of the air only a few hun
dred yards on either side of a tornado
track within which everything has been
destroyed. Once In a wl)lle a house, the
windows of which have been kept closed,
has been burst outward like a shell by
the expansion of tho enclosed air as the
central vacuum of the tornado passed
over It. Hall storms and tornadoes pro
quently go together, and both aro evi
dently the result of the meeting of bodies,
or currents, of air of sharply contrasted
temperuture.
Washington Notes
Ooaslp around the north end of the
Capitol finds a reason for the failure of
the senate to confirm the nomination of
Charles P. Nell as commissioner of labor
statistics In Nellie' report on child labor
conditions In the cotton mills of the
south.
Tho warning red, card of officialdom
has (Invaded the White House. The
mall of the president which ho has to
sign personally Is so heavy that he does
not have the opportunity of reading all
the tetters prepared for his signature,
and the card Is used to warn him that tha
rartlcular paper to which It h fastened
must not be signed until It has been
carefully read and considered. The card
Is equivalent to the behest "Stop, look,
listen."
Pity and amuement In equal parts
may be drawn from the diary procession
of Jobhunters around the departments,
in the evenings they congregate In groups
In hotel lobbies. Most of them have book
lets containing a Hat of government jobs
and the salaries they pay. One Texas
man had marked off ao positions, any
one of which he would take, when his
congressman looked over the list and
told him that every one of them was
under the elvll service. That was the
blow that killed father. Now and then
a pilgrim who started out for a X5.00O
Job Is ready to take an elevator Job at
1109 a month. Countless hopes have bnn
blasted. A Washington letter says that
saloon men who furnished free lunched
from S to 4 o'clock every afternoon, are
In doubt as to whether It pays to keop It

Onr Tribute to thp Coal Denier.
OMAHA, March 21.-To the Kdltor of
The Bee: This Is the first day of spring
and why not celebrate by going after the
coal trust and show up what It has
been doing to us this winter on our coal
bills.
I paid H.T3 for 1,000 pounds of Illinois
lump coal today when tho cost to tho
Omaha dealer for best grade of Illinois
lump coal Is as follows!
Illinois lump. 3.S to H.00; retails by
ton. $7.00; one-half ton, JS.75.
Kansas Cherokeo nut. J3.10 to i3,2S; re
tails by ton. JC.00; one-half ton, $3.25.
Pennsylvania hard coal. .C0, retails by
ton, J12.00; one-half ton, .25.
Other coal about the' same prooort'on
and all dealers ask the same price.
No city In the United States oavs such
tribute to the coal dealers us Omaha does
and has paid all this winter.

As to Homo Inntirnnce Conipnnlen.
OMAHA, March 22. To the Editor of
The Bee: During the debate In the en.
at last Monday, Senator Cordeal quoted
sections of laws from Colorado, Idaho,
Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Mlnne
sota. .Montana, New York, North Da
kota, Ohio, Washington and Massachu
setts In an effort to excuse the seventh
provision of section 101. The following
facts should be of great Interest to every
one: New York companies In 1D00 carrleJ
66.81 per cent of the life Insuranco busi
ness of that state. Nebraska nt that
tlmo had only one regular old-line com
pany. It carried 4.82 per cent of tho old
lino business1 of this state. The home
companleH of the state enumerated by
Senator Cordeal as having similar pro
visions in their laws carried In 1910 the
following percentages of the old-Unc life
insuranco In their respective home states;
,, . Per Cent.
Montana g.if
Colorado , ,, 4.71
Minnesota .' 4.ag

Washington ,' lo.ss
Ohio , n.so
Iowa 24.33
Massachusetts 26.31
Indiana !.. 26.42
Nebraska 31. no
New York R3.80
The states from which tho codo was
principally taken Washington, the home
companies only had 10.33 per cent; Minne
sota next, with only 4.98 per cent. Even
In Now York, since the adoption of the
Armstrong laws, the home companies
have lost over 13 per cent of the home
stato business to outsldo companies. In
Colorado one of tho companies the Col
orado National has given up the unequal
struggle and reinsured the Columbian
National of Boston, and Colorado Is now'
amending Its code In the Interest of its 1
homo companies. In spite of this record
it Is sought to enact laws that have been
forced upon states where there are prac
tlcally no home companies and where
the companies are very small; where it
was possible to enact such laws becauso
no opposition existed.
Nebraska Is the only'state, except New
York, In which home companies are given
great preference by its citizens over out
side companies, but, as above stated, the
New York companies are now losing
business In their home state, This record
was achieved by Nebraska companies ln(
spite of the fact that all eastern com-'
pan lea were operating under- the praised
"modern safety annual accounting laws."
If Nebraska companies were unworthy
of confidence, this record. In face pf the
strong competition which exists, could
never have been achieved. No scandal of
any kind has over attached to any Ne
braska life Insurance company. The
policyholders aro loyal to home com
panies, and that Is where tho shoe
pinches. Q. Ii. E. KLINGBE1U

CLEVELAND, March 21. To the Edi-
tor of The Bee: I have read a great deal.
Including an article reprinted from your
paper, lately, about what makes young
people go wrong.
It Is not ono general evil Buch as dan
cing or working In factories for low
wages, but many things.
One certain thing might ruin one Indi
vidual, but doeR not ruin them all.
Eyll companions. Improper dunces, read
ing low class books, and different kinds
of Intemperance, If Indulged In, will ruin
character.
But get right down to the root of evil
doing and see If It Is not traceable to the
bringing up of the child. Xt a child Is
brought up ps It should be It will hate
evil ways, for It will feel above them.
Raise children so that they will be
strong In will nnd character and to know
good from bad. Parents and older people
who are examples to the young should be
careful how they conduct themselves if
they expect the younger generation to
live rightly. T. B. C.
High Ttinr to Make Good.
OMAHA, March 21. To the Editor of
The Bee: A few days ago a "member
of the Twelfth Ward Improvement club"
criticized the position which you have
taken regarding Mr. Howell and his
Water board, basing his criticism on a
statement made by the writer in a
letter to you regarding the attitude of
one of our local newspapers to the
charter board election, this statement
being "that If there Is one thing in this
country we like it is a good loser and
if there Is one thing above all others
that gets on the nerves of thinking
people It Is to have some writer on a
mud-sllnglng sheet show that he and his
associates are a bunch ot sore heads."
As I see It there Is absolutely no con
nection between the attack made on the
charter board members and the criticism
of Mr. Howell and his methods which
The Bee Is offering. The first was un
justified mud slinging, while your ef
forts are being used for the people and
are certainly Justified, especially after
the facts and figures which you have
set forth have been carefully cpnsldered
The people of Omaha have been
promised, assured and told of the good
things In store for them In this water
deal until they are tired of It and what
Is wanted nqw Is to have Mr. Howell
and associates get busy and make good.
There Is no exceuse tor Omahans pay
ing more for water than Is paid In any
city in the country. We were told be
