Philadelphia Ledger: There was food for thought In this observation made by our Washington correspondent In his let ter on the tariff: "The main purpose of all tho schemes that have been proposed Is not how llttlo to raise, but how much to spend.

Approximately juu.uw persons were rendered homeless by the flood. Th property damaged is too great to be estl mated at tho present time. Statistics on homes destroyed or dam aged are Incomplete. The towns report lug show a total of 2.158 homes de iruycu. uuuiBKru uomrs are greatly In excess of this number. Dayton, Columbus and Hamilton were the greatest sufferers.

The revolution- ary tendencies of the president should cause little worry and less surprise. A chief maglatrato who began by recognis ing tho exlstenco of a vice president might be expected to go the length of even delivering In person an address to congress. New York Tribune: We tremble to think what would have happened to President Wilson If the Hon. "Joe" P.a. ley had held over Into this congress, Joe" would at least have tried to ex press what he thought Jefferson ought to havo thought under such trying clr cumstances. Philadelphia Bulletin: Why should our democratic friends be so greatly excted over the "speech from the throne" 'n Washington? It may be the entering wedge for the revival of many other Ir tercstlng old customs that will help t cheer and amuse us In these rushlntr days. Who knows but what we may have the lord mayor's parade In Phila delphia some time In the future? Springfield Republican: History will not say of President Wilson that ne lacked initiative or the courage to defy custom when It seemed advisable to fol low new courses. It Is his deliberate Judgment that the public Interest would be promoted by a return to the original practice of presidents of the Unltec Statos In personally appearing before either branch of the legislative body. whenever circumstances seemed to war rant It. to present the views of the chief magistrate, or to give "Information of the state of the 'union.' " In the phraie of the constitution. Washington and Adams alone ot the long line of presidents did that, however Jefferson established the custom that has since prevailed until It .has eemed like an unwritten law. A Sample of Water Ilonril Cnnie. OMAHA. April 16. To the Elltor of The Bee: On April 7 I sent a check for $5.41 to the Omaha Water board In payment of water bill for privilege of uslntf water from April 1 to July 1, which they im mediately returned demanding an extra 5 per cent because this bill had not been paid on on before April 1. This bill was for water In a five-room cottage located In tho midst of the tor nado district In the northeast part of the city. In the confusion and wreckage of the house nhd furniture this bill was not found until April 7 and a check waa im mediately sent therefor, but was refused as being 28 cents short of the rate to be collected after April 1. At the rate of this bill the expense of using water this year wilt be J5.88 higher than last year for the same cottage. A TAXPAYER. nenil the Illblr More. BRADSHAW, Neb., April lB.-To the Editor of The Bee: Much has been said through Tho Bee's- letter box since the destructive tornado that swept down through your beautiful city Easter Sun day, attempting to plncc tho cause, and whether God's hand was or was not In it Some of tho discussions have been shock ing to good moral sense while others have been more or less amusing, but all have shown to a greater or less degree the various Ideas poor mortal man has of his Maker and ft very meager knowledge of the scrlpturces. The subject Is n sacred one. too sacred for me to attempt to en large or elaborate upon, but wo wish to quote a few references from God's own holy word and allow the reader to look up the texts and study them out for themselves. Wp aro told In second Timothv. 3:lfi: "All scripture Is given by Inspiration of uou and Is profitable for Instruction in righteousness." Now let us turn to first Corinthians, 2:16, where we reaA "Who hath known the mind of tho Lord, that he may Instruct Him?" Then again In Romans, 11:34-35, we read: "For who hath known tho mind of the 1-ord? or M.Ka I. . I. ... ".u uuwi iieen tus counsellor? or who hath first given to Him, and It shall be recompensed unto him again?" Then turn over to Job, 23:13: "But He Is In one mind and who caif turn Him? and what ills soul deslreth, even that Ho doth.' Wo havo quoted tho above passages of scripturo that they may arouse an In teresi in tno reader to read further along this samo lino of thought and offer the following references that the readers of Tho Bee may search out and read for themselves: Numbers, 16:28-33; Isaiah, 10:15-18; Proverbs, 27:30, nnd Job, 28:12-14-23-28. It Is generally concelded by all Bible readers and students that tho Great Ruler, architect and builder of this uni verse, whom wo call God, possesses ! three qualities or powers. He Is omnip otent. He is omniscient and He is omnl present. Recognising these facts, let us j cease our making gods after our humane and Inhumane Ideas, and to close this article we refor the reader to Psalms 133:6-16- JOHN B. DEY. An Onttldtr'i Advice. DENVER, Colo.. April 14.-To tho Ed itor of The Bee: Tho recent disasters of cyclone, flood and fire should not be con sidered, as Individual calamities. In the proper light they are community disasters and therefore community problems. Time wns when wo could not look upon them thus, but a new splrU Is on us and new powers are In our hands. Wo issue bonds against tho Incomo of our cities for civic centers, park systems and other great public ornaments which wo believe will havo moral as well as other effects upon our citizens. But here Is R public movement mor.i vital. In Its effect upon the community, which If the city could finance It, would become an mtercst bearing Investment to the city for all time. In the great calamities of Omaha, Day ton and other cities, there will no doubt be hundreds of citizens formerly self supporting and city supporting that will, by the destruction of their life savings, bo thrown into the class of thoso who Struggle for mere existence, or who be come a burden upon tho community. In the presence of such disasters it is easy for parents to convince themselves that the boy can leave school and be come a member of tho already too great army of child laborers. The girls, too. ore not spared and they enter the factor ies to brave the dangers of modern in- dustrlal lite. Already our western papers are plan ning to gain additional population for the west because these ylctlms of disaster nre uprooted In their present environ ment and there Is a feeling that they can be Induced to go Into new communities if It means that they must start all over again. Now you cities of the cast will spend money to Induce new citizens to take tho placo of those you lose. Why not ba willing to spend a. llttlo to keep thoso you nnve. it you can bond your cities for civic beauty, why not do so to repair this calamity. You will thus first assure the rebuilding of the destroyed districts be cause It Is a civic venture, and not de pendable upon Individual Initiative which may, and too often Is, Inadequate to the tasK. You can hold an already present population without suffering tho loss which must ensue upon a large migration from your city. The present problems should open a new era in socializing our clvlo activities. F. W. HENRY". LINES TO A SMILE. "No woman knows how to drive ft nail." "And what of that?
