In proportion to ability and effi
ciency at the rate that Is paid to
hired public offlcors and employes,
this volunteored Borrlce would add
up to almost incalculable yalUo.
Tbeso observations are prompted
by what seems to us inadequate ap
preciation of tho brains, timo and
labor freoly given to Omaha by the
men in responsible direction of tho
Ak-Sar-Dcn fall festival and by those
who are Just about 'to close up their
labors In connection with tho rollof
work following the lato tornado.
Pcrhapa tho two bodies aro not ex
actly of tho same class, tho dno being
more or less permanent and the othor
simply temporary, tho one drawing
tho limelight and passing glory and
tho other devoid of display and pro
ductive of thanklcssncss, if not com
plaints. Dut the point is there, that
the best business talent In a live,
progressive community is always
requisitioned when there Is a real job
to do, and tho response Is promptly
niado out of pure public spirit to
promote tho general good, In which
those who carry tbo laboring oar
share only as do all the rest.
After all, howevor, as overyone
who has ever answered such a call
will testify, the consciousness of a
higher duty done to the best or one's
ability is tho real satisfaction that
comes from publio service.
The Trespasser Problem.
According to reliable statistics,
192,642 persons wero killed on rail-
road property In this country from
1830 to 1912, inclusiv6: 103.660. or
63,8 per cent as trespassers, for
whose safety the railroads wore not
directly responsible In that time
16,932, or 8.8 per cent, of tho whole
met death In train accldonts. Thnsn
doaths chargod to mischance, or tho
fault or carolossness' of Uho victim,
ore numbered at 176,610, or 01.2 per
cent of the whole.
The railroads complain that while
tbo publio hears much about the 8.8
per cent killed in train accldonts, for
which tho railways aro directly re
sponsible, it hear very little about
tho other 91.2 per cent, and there Is
something in that. Apart from that,
howovor, the trespasser problem
challenges public attention. It calls
for consideration by national and
state legislatures, as woll as commis
sions having to do with other forma
of railway regulation. The long and
short or It Is that tho time has como

Choosing a Vocation.
, A book has been written on
"Choosing o Vocation," and if it
serves no other purpose than to
arouse those who read It to the im
portance of toe selecting of a life
work It will have Justified itself.
What choice can be more important
unless it be that of choosing a hus
band or wlfa? To this aga belong
the credit of barkening to the call
for greater efficiency and to the
task! of raising each tnan'a efficiency
to Its highest exponent. But such
a thing is not possible unlets the
man first has found his proper
sphere of labor. Haphazard methods
seldom produoe maximum efficiency.
Or, as this author referred to, the
lato Professor Frank Parsons or
Boston, puts it:
If a yoving man chooses his vocation so
mat nis best abilities and enthusiasms
Will be united with his daily work, he
ia iaia ui lounaauon of success and
happiness. But If hl miii.. ..
tbuslasms are separated from his dally
worx, or do not find in It fair scope and
opportunity for exercise and develop
ment; It his OCCUD4tl0tl Is miralv a
means of making a. living, and tho work
he loves to do Is side-tracked Into the
evening hours, or pushed out of his life
altogether, he will be only a fraction of
me man n ought to be.
Yet how many parents have, nron
erly considered tho selection of their
boys' vocation? "I believe In let
ting a boy follow tho bent of his own
talents and choose his OWn nocuniL.
tlon" Is a very common expression of
parents, who seem to think that as
"water seeks its own level" an 1m
maturo youth will unaided certainly
fall into the sphere for whtoh he Is
most fitted. But the logic of such
reasoning does not appoar. The
parent guides the child through
school and all the other prelim
inaries, ao why not into the final
and permanont role of his life? Not
that one person may fully decide for
another what ho should do, but wise
counsel Is helpful and needed.
Between the boy and bis parents
thero ought to be a pretty good Idea
of tho boy's talents, tastes and In
clinations, a thorough inventory and
reckoning or which aro essential in
a faithful effort to start ono along
the right road. Of course, em
phasis Is no more to be laid on in
fallibility here than elsewhere, for
the average, human is not free to see
and admit his own shortcomings, but
tile general rule as laid down Is a
mighty good one to follow. At
least, it Is better than paying no at
tention whatever to one of the most
crucial turns in every career.
The Contribution of the Germans.
The most notable feature of this
year's Ak-Sar-Ben festival, according
to the consensus of public opinion,
was the contribution o'f the German
dement of the cpmmunlly in tho
form of tho Gorman day exercises
and parade. Tho magnificent dis
play made illustrates what, can be
dono by well directed effort, enthusi
astically supportod, along nationality
lines in a cosmopolitan tlty like ours.
It takes an occasional rontindor of
this kind to Impress up6n us tho
largo and substantial part which our
citizens ot German ancestry tako In
all our public activities, but which
is not so clearly seen as when massed
In a special project, promoted and
executed by themselvos. Among tho
admirable traits of the men and
women of German descont aro their
pride In upholding them. Our Ger
man friends have set an example, not
only to tho othor so-called foreign
elements among us, but to those who
like to distinguish themselves as

Pood Price Variations.
An Investigation made by the fed
oral bureau ot labor Into the prices
ot food In halt a doten eastern clUes
discloses a decided variation between
them. Tbe clUes in the list are Bal
timore, Boston, Cleveland, New York,
Philadelphia and Washington, and
the returns Indicate that food prices
in Baltimore are decidedly lower
than in the other cities, and that
Boston, rather than New York, as
would naturally be expected, runs
Taking the low quotations for a
particular date, sirloin steak could
be had In Baltimore for 20 cents a
pound, as against 22 cents In Cleve
land, 24 cents In Now York, 25 cents
In Washington, 38 cents in Philadel
phia and 33 cents In Boston. For
rib roast the low pried in Baltimore
was 16 cents, as against 22 cents In
Boston, and 20 cents In New York
and Philadelphia. Eggs selling In
Baltimore and Washington for 24
cents a dozen were commanding 31
cents in Boston and 30 cents in New
York. In the one Item of butter
alone the range In Baltimore, 34 to
42 cents, was higher than In Boston
at from 31 to 37 cents.
Without fuller information it
would be idle to try to explain tbe
reason for theso divergent condi
tions, which are doubtless repeated
as between our own cities of' the
west. If wo were to make a wild
guess, however, It would be that the
moro active competition of Balti
more's public markets Is reflected In
these food prices, and that possibly
Boston grocers and butchers have a
closer understanding with one an
other in which consideration for the
consumer Is not overrnwerlng,
The Gospel of Sanitation.
Our missionaries nave borne their
gospel beyond tho seas "unto the
uttermost parts of tho earth." In
their wake have gone tho evangelists
of commerce to spread American In
terests and Influence in other lands.
And then followed the civil servants
with their good news of sanitation,
through the instrumentality of which
"lands that havo lain in darkness"
havo been lighted with a now hope,
new aspiration, new vision or life.

Influence with the natives would
amount almost to nothing If thoy

they find upon entering their fields
of labor; that the orientals expect
the occidental to know how to help
them out of their unwholesome phys
ical conditions as well as administer
to their spiritual wants, whlCh are
really the vory last to be considered
by th6 far easterner. By-precept and
example our representatives in what
ever cause or capacity, then, must
teach the people ot these lands the
redeeming power of sanitary exist
ence. Call it what they will, the critics
ot "territorial aggression" .beg the
question so long as they criticise an

Ours has, If through no other agency
