Omaha Ori the Postal Map.
By order of tho postmaster general
Omaha Is to bo one of the fifteen
local centers of the country where
doad lotter mail will bo consigned
and disposed of.
Omaha secured this recognition ot
Its Importance as a consequence of
having been designated by order of
tho preceding postmaster general as
headquarters for the then newly
created railway mall service division.
Postal officials are now also en
gaged In making a report on feasible
arrangements for establishing a par

a short time when nearly all ot Its

Cold Storage and Butter Prices.
Chicago 1b reported to have 66,
000,000 pounds of butter tn Its cold
storages plants, 10,000,000 pounds
moro than this timo last year, yot
consumors aro paying midwinter
prices for butter and threatened
wlth continued advances.
Tho cold Btorage system in princi
ple Is a great public boon; in opera
tion It can bo made a burden. Its
legitlmato use Ib definitely needed;
its abuse for predatory purposes
should bo prevented.
Here, perhaps. Is an inviting placo
for Inserting that ever-ready and
penotrating Investigation probe. It
might bo profitably sunk deep Into
tho flosh of a real, llvo octopus with
tentacles ot far reach, Butter Is a
staple and a combination of abun
dant supplies and .soaring prices
comes mighty near resembling re
straint in trade.
Teaching Principles of Farming.
Rudimentary instruction in tho
principles ot farming In tho schools
should produce bonotlcl&l results.
All boys and girls could profit by an
elemental, knowledge ot tho groaC
primary-. Industry and It Is really
anomalous that ,in a land pro-emi
nent In agriculture such instruction
has been so largoly neglected. Thou
sands of American boys and girls
grow up utterly Ignorant ot the first
principles of tho farm and farming,
Tho other day a Chicago paper
printed a letter from a boy 10 years
old who had never seen a farm and
begged tho privilege ot going to tho
country. That boy is only ono of an
army with no clear idea of the vast
amphltheator In which tho brain and
Drawn of nations Is brod.
While wo aro crying our "back to
tho farm" Bhlbboleths, we must be
gin laying tho foundation for tho sue
cess of tho movement tn the Instruc
tion ot the American youth in the
schools. It will bo seed sown, on for
tile, mellow soil that shall ono day
bring forth fruit In abundance.
Protection at Watering Places.
What Is done at local watering
places for til protection of life?
Are guards on hand to see that those
unablo to swim do not got into deep
water? Are expert divers and swim
mors presont for rcscuo work? Are
mechanical llfo-savlng dovices con
venlent, so that help may bo quickly
given when needed?
These questions are prompted by
the drowning ot a school boy In deep
wator. who, it Is said, could not
swim, He should not have been al
lowed to go beyond tho shallows.
Wttnnscna unv even after he went
, . --
down no a.w,
grappling hooks, could be found with!
which to recover tho body.
Manawa arid other local resorts
have bad their toll ot accidents in
years gone by. All such places that
attract thousands ot people should
make It tholr business to Insure their
safety by every available means.
Deep water limits should be fixed,
and those unable to swim kept out.
Guards should see that rules aro en
forced and precautions taken to nco
that those who go intp the water aro
not left to their own fate.

OMAHA, Aug. 7.-TO the Editor of The
Bee: Dr. W. E. Evans Is speaking kindly
of the socialists. He has Intimated that
thoy and the progressives are working
with the same end In view. Aside from
the surprising character ot such an as
sertion. Dr. Evans' attitude Is Indicative
of a radical change In publlo opinion.
Once socialists were thought to be long,
halrod, wild-eyed specimens of human
ity, caring nothing for life and property,
and totally devoid ot decency and self
respect. The following from the Outlook
will show that such views were not con
fined to the "unthinking rabble."

And the pen the penned it was the pen
ot Theodore Roosevelt. During the last
presidential campaign Theodore, In addi
tion, stated repeatedly that the success
of the progressive party was all that
could savo the country from socialism. It
Is evident that Theodore Roosevelt and
Dr. W. A. Evans, though In the same
party, are not at all of the same mind, i
The rank and file of the progressive
party are undoubtedly sincere. They are
earnestly endeavoring to solve many
grave problems. But they are groping In

A Illd Gospel.
NORTH TLATTE, Neb.. Aug. 6,-To
the Editor of The Bee: Let the Gospel
light shine forth; In II Corinthians, 4-3,
It says: "But If our Gospel be hid, It is
hid to them that are lost" Paul had an
experience of his lost condition, but ha
did not know he waa lost when he with
others formed a great persecution against
the chUrch, aa In Acts, 7:M to 60 and
chapter $1 to 5. The same Is true today.
Men glory In persecuting the church and
followers ot Jesus, though they make
mistakes In trying to follow Him. Paul
said men that do such an act are lost;
but It was after his conversion.
Now, tho same Lord that made such a
change In Paul's life can make i change
In men's lives today. A defamer of Chris
tianity today Is no worse thin Paul. It
ull comes from the same antichrist spirit
When men are tilled with this antichrist
spirit they will strut around and blas
pheme everything that Is Chrlstllko and
It makes no difference how hard It Is
for a Christian to bear It. It was the
same way Paul and his friends did.
But there Is another mirror sldo of
Paul's life. Let's look Into It as he holds
It up by his strenuous living life. In
Acts, 9, Is his conversion; he Is Saul now,
but after his conversion ho was called
Paul. In Acts, chapter 29, Paul tells
Agrtppa his life before and after his
conversion In Such way that Ayrlppa
said unto Paul, "Almost you persuadest
me to be a Christian." Paul's answer was,
"Would to God you were and those that
are with you." And that wish of Paul's
Is the wish of all after their conversion.
Paul In his defense did not run around
to find out what some ono had 4d
and done as an excuse for not accepting
Christ as men do today. Paul reallted
he must be saved, and I do be
lieve If men were more Interested In
their own salvation than they are In
defaming the Imperfections t weak men,
they, like Paul, would be a greater bless
ing to humanity. Be not afraid to come
up to the standard like Paul and there
wilt then be no hidden Gospel to any
poor man; no, nevor.
Kick Against Street Obatrttctlnn.
OMAHA, Aug. .-To the Editor Of The
Bee: Let ma register a kick tho way the
railway company Is monopolizing tha
streets where Jt robuilda its traoka.
Leavenworth street was Impassable for
Weeks on account ot street railway ob
structions, and now Farnam street Is un
dergoing the same treatment In other
cities they do not let the street railway,
or other publlo corporations, tear up more
than two blocks of the street at a time,
and make them rtpalr One stretch before
they start work on another. Why can't
Omaha do likewise?
Good Times amd Bad Times.
CHICAGO, Aug. To the Editor of
The Bee. The ratio between production
per capita and consumption per capita
determines good or bad conditions. For
example, estimate $10,000,000,000 as the
value ot the average annual crop, and
the surplus would be about $$,(00,000,000,
but should our annual crop, through
drouth or other misfortune, be reduced
to $7,KX),C00,0CO. the surplus would be
nothing, hence very hard times and pos
We have 106,000,WO people In this
country. If through Idleness, short hours,
or Inefficiency ot labor, production should
be reduced 3i cents per capita per day,
and through extravagance and reckless
expenditure there should be an added
waste of S cepts per day, making a total
loss of 7 cents per day, or $2S per annum
per capita. It would equal $2,600,600,000. an
amount as great and as destructive aa a
76 per cent crop,
A short crop Is Immediately noticed,
and we locate our mlifortune at once,
but apparently no one takss Into account
a loss due to Inefficiency, and tha reck
less and almost criminal waste of our
people, which Is as destructive annually
as would be the short crop.
Our government cannot regulate and
correct existing conditions: It Is up to
the individual. It for the next year every
American would do honest work, cease
watching the clock and practice decent
and sane economy, our troubles would be
eliminated, and the muckraking press
and tha political agitators would be a
thing of the past.
