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.

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
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

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
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.

There's a very small young lady
Who goes riding past my door.
Both on sunny days and shady,
Every afternoon at four.
She's a haughty little creature
And, though you're a millionaire.
She will scan your every feature
With a calm, relentless stare.
Y'ou may rent a sixty-power
Or an eighty-power car.
Or a taxi by the hour,
But with her you're not at par.
For her chauffeur is behind her
And does not obstruct the view;
There Is nothing to remind her
There's a single thing to do.
She Is moved on springs as luring
As the bosom of the sea;
"Tls like drifting from one's moorini
On a floating symphony.
But the mystery extended
Is the fuel that's employed,
For tho moro of It expended
Is the less of It destroyed. '
It's a force whose emanation
Is a flame that always glows;
Just a mother's adoration
That no waning ever known.
And so my dear, I mention
It In Joy to see you move;
Though you have no comprehension
Of the limitless dimension
Of your faithful chauffeur's love.
