Now for the Spring Clean-Up.
With the advent of gentle springtime, It h up
to us to proceed systematically with our clean-up
of streets, yards and vacant lots. A year ago
wo had tho tornado debris to call forth a con
certed effort at such work, to which two days i
wore given, with splendid results. Happily, no
such disaster provokes our heroism this year,
but our civic pride should Inspire us all. While

The Flood of Bills.
Tho most striking parts of tho report on re-
form of legislative procedure are to be found in 1
tho tables giving the number of bills annually 1
or biennially proposed in the different states,
l'or last year in tho forty-olght states the flood (
of bills totaled tho staggorlng aggregato of
55, S7", and adding in tho figures for the p.c- ,
ceding year, which Involves little duplication be
causo most of the states have only biennial scs- j
sions, this total becomes 72,188. (
Equally significant Is the oxhlblt going back
a Bcrlea of years, indicating that the number of j
bills is stoadlly Increasing In nearly every ono of
the states. At one time it was supposed, and
urged, that tho establishment of a professional
bill-drafting agency, such as we havo In our log
Islatlvo reference bureau, would check tho out
pour of impossible or unnecessary proposals.
Tho oxporlonco,. hot only of Nebraska, but of
most of tho states as well, scorns to have proved
otherwise, if not precisely tho opposite, for tho
states which furnish a deportment for bill-drafting
ns un aid to tho law-makers show no diminu
tion of bills, but, on tho contrary, a continued
and often notable Increase. Tho curtailment
of tho tlmo limit for introducing bills, accom
plished by an amendment to our Nobraska con
stitution, was expected to help toward fewer
and better measures, but, ob wo all know, tho
result was disappointing.
The only explanation offered is "tho seeming
deslro to regulate all human activity by law
a law for each concolvablo idea of merit"
which is plausible enough except that too many
of the ideas havo no concolvablo morlt. Yot no
satisfactory means has been dovison for sifting
thorn out and hoading them off boforo thoy en
cumber the legislative files. In other words,
tho only visible safety valve Is election to our
legislatures of law-makers possessing ordinary
intelligence and enough common sonso to put
on the brakes and kill off tho freak Bchomes and
impracticable proposals with which our statute
books aro menaced.

The Sohool Girl and Dame Fashion.
"One of tho most sorlous problems of tho
educator to day is tho problem of tho school
gjrl tho most loyal dovptoo to tho Ooddcss of
Fashion," says tho president of tho Omaha
Woman's club, In lino with a thought expressed
on nioro than ono occasion by Tho Uee. "How
can knowledge bo instilled in tho heads plied
high with false tresses? As ono teacher .rcarily
sighed, 'If thoy woro more concerned with what
wont into their heads than what wont on, wo
might hopo to accomplish something.' "
But tho problem will novor bo solvod by tho
school alone. It calls for' tho Berlous co-oporatlon
or tho home. Of courso, it is difficult becauso
it is a virtue of swoot femininity to wIbIi to ap
pear beautiful and attractive and a virtue we
should hato to lose, so there is a' delicate dis
tinction botween proper and improper adorn
ments at least, many go on that supposition.
Clearly this fault is nioro tho mother's than tho
girl's; if It woro not, perhaps tho mother wov.ld
bo at school and tho girl at homo.
If tho distinction referred to is so delicate
tho boundary between propriety and impropriety
may have to bo determined by lotting tho girl
woar whntovor sho wishes up to tho tlmo it be
gins to interfere wjth her work in tho school
room. Porhnps no girl Is overdressing whoso
mind Is not diverted by these artificials from hor
schoollug, yot oven then sho may bo sotting a bad
example with pernicious offect on her BChool
matos. Tho paronts nro, or ought to be, tho
beat qualified to pass judgment and correct fol
lies and thoy make egregious blunders when
over; thoy ignore their duty and attempt to
slough It onto tho teacher.
Short Sermons nml Church Golue.
OMAHA, March 3b. To the Bdltor of
Tho Bee. A reader signing "II." says
every Sunday would bo "go-to-churoh"
Sunday If ministers preached short ser
mons. Of course I don't know what ho
considers a short sermon, but If ho Is
regular church attendant he knows that
the average sermon these daya In not
nioro than thirty minutes, many not
more than twonty.
But no one can say that If the sermons
wero shorter every Sunday would be a
"go-to-church" Sunday. People who go
to church with a serious purpoBO aro not
11 f raid to listen to good preaohlng, re
gardless of time. Our friend I fear is
merely echoing something he hoard a j
good long while ago when sermons really j
were of great length. He certainly la j
away behind time with his wall. It III I
become a people of our character and I
day to complain of the llttlo time spent
once- a week In spiritual devotion, ns
compared with tho six big busy days j
and nights given to other things. i
Isn't It a llttlo strange, though, that !
while mon will put up with tho Grossest
sort of Inefficiency In all other spheres
of endeavor they demand perfection In
tho chut cli, In tho hands of the fame
old, erring humans who run tho rest of
the world? Perhaps It Is a way of salv
ing a troubled conscience. Most men
feel that they ought to go to church;
know that the church represents what Is
best In life; that it appeals to tho best
In men, and, of course, It takes a stout
lira r tod man or a badly calloused con
science to turn away from such a con
viction. Ho cannot do so without trying
to Justify himself, and that Is why some
men offer these pitiful palliations, think
ing that a poor excuse Is better than

Trnlnlnur Our Trnt'.hers.
OMAHA, March 23. To tho KdlUr of
Tho Bee: "What Is the matter with our
daughters, aro they not doing their duty
as teachers In our public schools? Are
they not proficient to hold the position
as public school teachers In Omaha? Do
wo havo to go outsldo of Omaha to so
licit girls for Instructors In otir own pub
llo schools? What Is the matter with
our own training school? Is it not cap
able to train our own girls from our own
high school for our own uso In our own
schools? And why should wo havo to go
outsldo to solicit girls for our teaching
staff at a greater expense to our peoplo?
I thought that our school system is
ono of the finest In tho land, so ac
knowledged by everybody everywhere.
Is not tho success of our school system
responsive to tho efforts of our school
teachers, a great many of whom aro
graduates from our own training school?
"Why is it that many othor cities main
tain such training- schools for tho very
purpose wo maintain our training school
and wo never hear of any other city
trying to abolish their owp institutions
In order to patronlto outsiders.
Do wo in Omaha posses so llttlo pa
triotism and local prldo as to tolerate
oven tho mero Intimation of such inten
tionsand by whom, by our own mem
bers of tho school board? t
1 can hardly believe that such a move
Is contemplated by anyone, and particu
larly by members of tho board. ,
I, as taxpayer and father of a teacher
graduated from our own training school,
most emphatically protest against such
a contemplated move, and I am suro that
a great many patrons and taxpayers talco
tho same position. Our city will not stand
for such a move, and the Board of Edu
cation should think twice boforo doing
anything of tho kind. TAXPAYER.

That Element of Waste,
Government exports compute a $300,000,000
waBto in our uunual egg production,' that Is, that
'white our egg crop amounts to $500,000,000 a
year it should como up to $700,000,000, on tho
basis of tho number of eggs laid. From tho hen
houso to tho consumer they figuro $50,000,000
worth of eggs broken and destroyed and $150,
000,000 worth spoiled in poor handling', pre
sumably In storago and otherwise. Again, tho
heu, being a porverse creaturo, invariably lays
more eggs in tho warm months than people con
sume and fowor In tho winter, thus arbitrarily
Ignoring the fine points in tho ancient law ct
supply and demand.
At a glance, one perceives an arduous task in
solving the egg problem, for It involves tho
handling ot two obstreperous factors, tbo per
verse hen, who does the laying, and tho boy who
totes the eggs from the nest to the house. Ju6t
as soon as our exports find a way of persuading
Miss Biddy to adjust her production tq tho vary
ing shades of consumption demands and the ooy

Omaha want an ordinance that will artificially glvo

probably easily bo proven that there is comparatively
less Intemperato drinking when thoso seeking refresh
ment can at the sam tlmo partake of a meal or
lunch, than when men have no other privilege than
of drinking only, at the bar. In tho larger centers tho
most orderly of tho saloons aro those which are at
the same time eating places. But that Is frankly not
tho point. Certain of the competition must be put
