Where- It Hits Hardest.
Whore dlwutor like our terrible
tornado hlU hardest Is In its blind
ing blow to hopoa and' ambitions.
Sudden doath ls-traglc and heart
rending, and phynloal suffering
carries' duo pest -dlstross, booause
nothing can replaco loved ones lost
or mitigate tho cruel agony of
broken limbs and torn flesh. Tlino,
however, assuagon grief, and In tlmo
also-wounds will hoal, though leav
ing scars, and in time houses will be
repaired or rebuilt.
Blasted hopes and crushed ambi
tions, however, ofton fall to rovlvo.
Think of tho man or womnn who
has tolled for years to got ahead In
the World, who underwent sacrifice
to oduculo children, whosb hard
enrncd savings have boon Invested In
n homo, bo It over so lowly, who was
beginning to plan for the futtiro, and
then In a moment Is sot back to start
all over ngaln at the beginning, with
the years flpwn and tho strength to
do again stopped.
That is whero tho blow strikes
heaviest, where Us doadonlng offectB
last longest, whero It- takes a
mightier effort for tho fallen to riso,
whore mental anguish Is keenest,
whore comfort, sympathy, and help
aro most noedod.
Attention to Rural Churches.
Most religious denominations are
porploxed with tho reported decay of
tho rural church llfo, especially
markod In tho last decade. Somo
are attempting to dovlso ways of ro-
hablliation, and ono hits upon tho
Idea of Inducing tho cream of Its
seminary graduates to doyote the
first thruo years of' their nc'tlvo min
istry to country churchcB. If the
rotrogrosslon In tho country Is duo
to a lack of capablo leadership, this
plan shohld work out with splendid
results, if It can bo mado to work at
all. Tho tondoncy is for tho young
minister to do tho best ho can in
selecting his first field of labor, and
that seldom means a country church,
or' a mission church, as it happens
to bo In many cases. Tho rosult Is
that Uiobo who cannot got tho at
tractive pulpltu go to tho remote
places and, a leading church papor
says, this has becomo so common as
to suggest that tho young man who
takes tho mission church could do
no hotter, and this invites odium,
which hlndors good work.
Tho ldoa is to creato a fund undor
homo mission boards for aiding min
isterial studonts through seminary
with tho agreement that they aro to
glvo their first throe Years to thn
homo mission or rural flold. This,
it 1b believed, w.ould glvo tho coun
try tho advantage of oxc'nntlnnnt
ability, rojuvonato country life and
in turn croato now religious, ro
sourcoa available to tho entire nroDa-
ganda. The thoory seoms plausible.
inaamuoh as tho church, as well as
most other groat agencies, has drawn
much of its slnows from tho country,
seems high tlrap, it woro looking
more sharply to tho Imnnrtnn r
cultivating its sourco of BUppllos.
Simplified Spelling.
In glancing over the list
contained in tho fourth edition of
now spelling rocenUy issued, ono is
inclined to boliovo thero aro some
things even worse than tho old sys
tem of orthography. Thero may bo
an advantage somqwhoro In spelling
following" without the "w." "echo"
with tho "h," jand "gone" with tho
"o," but "whore may we ask? Or
Wh V Rno.ll llhvnlHnh "fvdlnln.. l a

graph," and enough "onur?" bo wo
really owe that much tq simplicity, or
ovon to euphony? ,Havo wo not some
sugni aoot to tho appearance of
things, if not to our ancestors?
But If revisions in our BDiMllnir
aro bogun, why loto the whelp dis
tance? For lnstanco, why stop at
spelling physician i-y-s-i-c-l-a-n? if
wo aro going in for simplified spell
ing, let us go In,' right and spoil this
word "flzlshun," which is much moro
simple .than tho otor. And so on
down the list many such Improve
ments suggest themselves. Whatever
groat and Important need is to be met
by this spelling reform we confoss
our ignorance of it cortainly cannot
bo mot by any half-way work. Re
form to be offecttvo must bo drastic
and complote.
That Municipal Paper,
Tho citizens of Los Angeles by a
referendum vote havo '.'recalled"
their municipal newspaper, foundod
a year ago for the purpose of secur
ing publication of "reliable news"
"concerning all departments of civic
llfo. It cost 136,000 a yoar to
maintain the papor nnd by a large
majority the venture has been dis
pensed TVlth.
It must be almost solf-ovldont that
whatever ills or faults the dally
newspaper may possess aro hot cur
able by tho remody of a municipal
organ. Tho roason is that no "organ
can over boconio or take tho place of
a newspaper, Tho business of a
newspaper is. Intimately related to
publish news with all possible ac
curacy as to "the facts, and as tho
paper is Intimately related to and
and depondent upon popular favor
for Its support, responsible to its
readers for what it says and does,
the privately-owned paper is more
amenable to public reproof than an
official organ could possibly bo.
The f reo press contemplated by the
authors of the constitution was not
n prossownod or controlled by tho
government. It was a press un
trammolod by any restrictive Infl
ence or hamporlng manacles In any
way calculated to lessen Its ac
countability to tho public. Official
organs muy bo sot up nnd main
tained, but they are not, and cannot
bo newspapers in tho real aonso.
The Psychology of Exaggeration.
It Is too bad that, as If adding to
Omaha's calamity, the news fakor
must play upon our mlsfortuno by
gross oxaggoratlon. His earliest
statement of losses havo been per
sisted In until thoy havo evidently
boon accepted as true all over the
land. While thero may havo been
some excuse for distortion at the
first, natural to most minds undor
tho stress of shock, thore is no ex
cuse for lotting theso roports stand
uncorrected. One of tho moBt re
liable and conservative Now York
papers discusses oditorlally our loss
of llfo at 300 and property at $12,
000,000. Similarly tho report has
been repeated that Omaha had
$1,000,000 on hand at tho very start
for roliof. One report oven quotes
Commissioner Ryder as saying so,
which shows that the exaggeration
was neither accidental or excusable,
Undor conditions such aB those
visited upon this and other communi
ties during tho week, the mind In
stinctively tends to magnify Instead
of minimizing results. A cyclone or
tornado is nover thought of In tho
positive, but always tho suporlativo
dogreo. Our mental processes seom
Incapable of accurato conclusions
undor stress, which, howevor, is not
surprising. To see ten lives and a
hundred houses swept away suggests
a hundred lives and a thousand
houses. Yot men do not trust tholr
distracted senses for tho facts; they
sook them out by diligent search,
having found which, thoy revise
tholr conceptions, If thoy aro honost.
But some will ovon then grudgingly
accept or frankly reject tho truth,
preferring to cling to tho first Im
pression simply bocausri It Is moro
American Adviser for China.
It is nntural that China should
again como to America for an offi
cial advisor to tho now republic as

of tho republic, Is a product of Amor

as aro many of tho men associated
with him In this great revolutionary
Tho summons of Prof. Prank J.
Qoodnow of Columbia university to
Borve as advisor to the Chinese gov
ernment Is only another tribute to
our scholarship and Institutions.
This Is regarded In the United Statos
as a most fortunato BOloctlon, for in
the long years of his sorvico at Co
lumbia Prof. Qobdnow has exerted
far-reaching influonco upon other
scholars, who havo gono to tho ends
of tho oarth. Indeod, ho has had
undor his tutolago somo of tho young
loaders of tho Now China. The English-speaking
secretary to Prosldont
Yuan Chi Knl, in fact, is a graduate
of Columbia, which has received its
quota of tho young Chinese sent to
this country undor tho terms of tho
Hay agreement, growing out of ho
Boxer lndomnlty concession, to bo ed
ucated In our colleges and universi
ties. Prof, Goodnow's opportunity will
be groat, and his ability to moet tho
tost Ib aoknowlodgod. His eminenco
as n student and teacher of consti
tutional government and economic
development Is recognized abroad.
Another scholar thus goes forth into
the field of politics of tho widest pos
slblo domain to prove, no doubt, tho
eminent fitness of scholarship for tho
practical administration of govern
mental affairs. -
The Home in Court
Tho Chicago Tribune suggests that
our courts aro rapidly becoming dc
mestlcatod, that wheroas family quar
rels In tho past wero quietly settled
around the fireside by calling on eld
erly undo or aunt to act as arbiter,
the man and wife today parade their
grievances boforo the rld In civil
court; that Instead of a bod slat in
the hands of a stern, but loving
father for the boy who stolo an apple,
today the lad is haled before an
auBtero Juvenllo judge. All of
which, opines the Tribune, suggests
the wisdom of women us Judges and
assistants to judges as specialists in
domestic problems.
Perhaps we shall come to that
wo have come to so many queer ends
but where is tho assurance of Its
accomplishing the desired object? It
Is sad to observe how poorly our pres
ent modern methods of reform seem
to compare with the past in conduc
ing to the wholesome conditions of
tho homo, if the comparison may bo
made partially from the standpoint
of tho ever Increasing number of
homes blasted by divorce and boys
sent to various correctional Institu
tions, boys, who, perhaps, are llttlo
different from the lads of other days.
Before resorting to additional public
expedients to reform the home, would
it not be wise to attempt some reform
within tho home, Itself? That, of
course, suggests a difficult task, so
long sb parents are diverted from the
supreme Importance of maintaining
the old-fashioned fireside as the cen-
tor of chief attraction to themselves
and their chlldrpn.
Like Mother, Like Son.
Tho llttlo boy, his brother and
widowed mother had lost their lowly
cottage and all belongings In the
storm. Tho child was sent to a
friend to ask for work for the
mother. The friend offered him a
"Oh, no, mother wouldn't want me
to take that," he said, drawing back.
"Why, you need it; you havo no
money and no home," urged the
"No," porslstod the boy, ".mother
says thoro are so many wOrso off

Rather largo altruism for a lnd of

roflectod tho stout, true heart of the
lonely little widow seeking nothing
but tho opportunity of earning bread
for herself and two llttlo boys.
Weak, orrlng humanity scales
somo lofty hoighU sometimes, and
It seoms to riso highest from the
lowest depressions of adversity.
Many an object lesson of tho nobility

trials of tho last week to teach us

City Charter Limitations.
While in tho framing of a home-
ruio charter tho charter-makers have
a practically free hand over nil
strictly municipal activities, they are
still subject to limitations which rulo
out many suggestions that urn hnlnir
offered. Good advice is always do-
sirea ana welcomed, but unless those
giving advice havo a fair notion nf
charter Jurisdiction their suggestions
are apt to bo moro or less Imprac
Tho work of tho charter-makers,
it should bo understood, must be sub
ject to tho general state laws. It Ib
the consensus of legal opinion that
thoy cannot ropeal or change laws
that apply uniformly throughout tho
state or to all cities. If so, wo can
not through our charter abolish tho
8 o'clock, law or tho Albert law, any
more than wo can resclmP'the law
making It a felony to steal or to sot
up a gambling dovlco, although wo
might possibly add local regulations
on top of stato restrictions. It is a
question whether wo can altor the
distribution of governmental powers.
For oxample, judicial power is vested
with tho regularly constituted judgos,
and poor relief devolves upon the
county. Tho charter-makers cannot
take ovor tho county hospital to the
city any more than thoy can take
over the county court house, so that
suggestions relating to reorganiza
tion of county hospital and poor
farm, however portinent, como as
goods to the wrong market, unloss it
is the desire to have tho city dupli
cate work now dono by the county.
Charter-makers are limited In
many other ways by tho peculiar
traditions of our own city govern
ment, by property and Institutions
bolonglng to the city which are, and
must be, maintained by the existing
debt burden and by present and
prospoctlvo financial resources. In
tho vory nature of things, Omaha's
new charter must be a revision and
rearrangement rather than a brand
new factory -product built for nn
ideal city.
It is inevitable that large numbers
of strangors from around about will
visit Omaha to view the district de
vastated by tornado. This is a
natural and not reprohonsible curi
osity tho result of a situation that
is presented whenever such a catas
trophe occurs. To tho credit of the
railroads it should bo said that they
aro not exploiting the storm damage
in a spectacular way and, though ro
questod to do so, havo refused to
put on special trains or to promote
tornado scene excursions. Visitors
who como on their own accord, how
evor, should bo treated courteously,
and will in turn be expected to de
mean themselves properly.

Breath of April, when earth'H rapture
Shake the hills at your command,
And your old, Immortal promise
Thrills the gardens of the land.
Let my tear-swept heart be ready
For the joy that wildly wakes.
When In every lane and orchard
All the ancient wonder breaks.
When the morning, like a primrose,
Bursts to sudden flaming flower;
And the hawthorn hedges whiten
In the fragrant twilight hour.
When the shining hills stand verdant.
Like green warders of the world,
And from every tree your banners
Jubilantly are unfurled.
Then, oh, then. In pity tako me
From pale winter's sheath and khroud,
And make all my burdens lighter
Than the farthest fleecy cloud.
Make the shadows that engulf me
Vanish swiftly as a dream;
Give me of your flowery knowledge.
Teach me your wild pagan theme.
Wrap me round with your mad muolo.
Drench me In your cleansing rain,
And erase my chlldlBh errors,
All the clinging dust and stain.
Breath of April, breathe your healing;
Make me ready In that hour
When tho world's sad heart you quicker
With the spring's first fragile flower.
