course, on "the people," that term

The most significant part of our

his repeated reference to "my section

glamour with the regular rounders.
On the other hand, the enforcement
of proper regulations may in time

wholesome and delightful outing, and
a popular nnd profitable summer

Our Annual Toll of Hunters.
One hundred and thirty hunters
killed, 135 injured and not dead, is
tho open gaming season's toll, ac
cording to the record of casualties
kept by tho Chicago Tribune. Tho
slain are dlvldod between seventeen
states and Alaska, the others between
nlrte states. Wisconsin 1b the chief
offender, with twenty-nine Heaths
and twenty-eight Injuries, while
Michigan follows a very fair second,
Minnesota and North Dakota running
a tight race for third. Nobraska
does not appear in the lists at all.
Of course, some hunters must havo
been Injured and perhaps slain this
autumn in Nebraska, but. If so, the
records are not Included In this com
pilation. . . :
Dut what a fearful toll of life for
so brief a period. It challenges at
tention of a people so quick to cry
out against all manner of casualties
duo to preventable causes, such, for
example, as railroad, mine and auto
mobile accidents. But there Is still
nnother point worthy of mention.
How little attention, comparatively,
Is attracted by such heavy casualties
when they happen to be from, purely
private causes and confined to pri
vate "circles. It Is so with automo
bile accldonts. Relatively they, as
hunters' mishaps, excite almost no
general comment, but what if the
same number of deaths and Injuries
occurred In a railroad accident or a
mine? Instantly a clamor for better
means of safeguarding lite would
arise, and Justly so. As to the oth
ers, especially the hunters we are
apt to sigh and lay It onto certain
natural habits of carelessness diffi
cult, If not Impossible, to combat. No
more so than with respect to public
accidents. As a matter of con
sistency, we ought to be as alert to
correct our own private individual
faults as to insist on the correction
of those of public agencies.
People talk of the need for social
work by the church as it it were
something new, when in the begin
ning of its history the church was
bidden to minister to the wants of
the widow and orphan. It the lately
aroused zeal comes of the lack of
such effort, then it must be that the
church has simply failed of sufficient
response to the original command.

OMAHA, Dec. J. To the Editor of The
Bee: Mr. F. J. Irwin closes his com
munication to The Bee with the chal
lenge: Will some correspondent of The Bee
tell jour readers, if he can why a bishop
should receive more pay than a brake
man? At the risk of engendering bootless
disputation, I will suggest as one reason
that It Is because he Is a bfshop.
To become a - brakeman a man must
be equipped with sufficient of physical
strength to endure considerable hard
ships and a degree of Intelligence capa
ble of assimilating the Instructions given
to a point where he can efficiently carry
out a routine program of fixed and de
termined mechanical movements during
the hours of his employment. This Is
said with no Intention to disparage tho
brakeman, who Is usually a man of
mentality far above the reqlrements of
To become a bishop a man must have
physical capacity to endure strains of
nature that are never experienced by a
brakeman; must have mental qualllca
tlons that lift him above his fellow-men,
and must have passed through gradations
of service that -tax him to his utmost. In
order to develop those qualities that are
essential to successful leadership, with
out which no bishop can succeed.
A bishop might easily perform the du
ties of a brakeman, but how many brake
men are qualified to perform tho duties
of a bishop? OLD FOGY.
Is Cnthollclsm Declining t
OMAHA, Dec. I. To the Editor of
Tho Bee: Rabbi Cohn, speaklng'on Catho
licism, says It Is declining and has not
overcome the shock of the reformation.
Of course. It Is easy to see through his
argument. It would not do for him to
make It sound too good to his audience.
But let htm look at statistics and he
will see that It Is galntng rapidly, In
stead of declining. The Catholics of the
World at the census of 1800, numbered
about J30,00),000. Today they number over
300,000,000, which Is three times as
many as all the Prosestant sects com
bined. What the Catholic Church lost In
Europe 'during the reformation It has
more than made up In North and South
There are more Catholics In Germany
today than any other body. In England
thousands leave their former faith every
year to Join the Catholic ranks. In
Sweden. Norwon and Denmark, they are
rapidly returning to Catholicism. In
United States Us growth has been greater
than nny other country. The Cathollo
religion Is here to stay. It will last tilt
the end of time. There has been many
charges made against the church which
were not true. If we are to Judge the
church by the lives of a few bod people
In the church, I'm sorry to say It will
look worse for the reat of them." That
would not cause her to fall Into error.
The Cathllc church has been preaching
the somo doctrine for 1,900 years, even
her bitterest cnemys cannot cite one
Instance where It ever changed Its doc
trine. At times It has defined new ar
ticles of faith, but they have never dis
agreed with tho former teachings. The
same seven sacraments were practiced
In the catacombs of the first century as
are practiced today. If such a thing
should happen that the Catholic church
should sink, the rest will go with It. A
church that has stood the persecutions ot
the first three centuries and all the strug
gles of the succeeding centuries and the
so-called reformation of the sixteenth
century, can certainly survive In thin
twentieth century. Churches come and
churches go, but the Cathollo church
goes on forever. B. C, P.
la Scientific" Farming a Graft r
SOUTH BEND, Neb., Dec. 2,-To the'
Editor of Tho Bee: I wish some ono
more capable than I am would-write up
this scientific farming business .as It
should be done; for I do think it the
biggest graft ever undertaken. Has any
one been asked to vote for the enormous
expense to carry It on? No. It Is to be

too, and let our farm boys stay on the
farm and learn how to farm by practice;
but to take them off the farm to let
them be taught by persons that know
less than the average farmer, and when
he returns to the farm he Is no good at
all and cares more for a ball game than
any kind of work. His father has to
work much harder to supply him lri
