Mothers' day has nevor impressed some men
as much as others becaiiso of that sacredly
Jealous rogard which normal . man has for
mother above any other person. 8otno Inwardly
resent tho suggestion of this observance as a
presumption upon their lack of filial lovo or a
necessity for Its Inspiration. Truth is men who
aro men say with Colorldgo:
A mother Is a mother still,
The holiest thing alive.
They may wear tho little flower In their
Japel as n tribute to her, a token to the lovo
which, as Drowning said, "begins nnd ends
thero" in motherhood. Dut wo Imagine that
many a mnn this day rather feels that this very
public manifestation is a tresspass upon a rola-.
Hon far tqo sacred for common exhibition; that
ho feels ho would much rather . cherish tho
Jealousy of his affection in tho .secrecy of his
own heart. '
yet of course, tho significance of tho day,
llko tho motlvo of Its author, Is noble, and so
noblo mon fall Into tho observance, oven though
fooling, many of them, that for a people prono
to public days and observances this Is giving a
superfluity to tho expression of a lovo that'
stands alone, a love that ovon tho 'poots havo
vied to express. Says Thockcry nnd nono

of little children.

"Manifest Destiny-" ,
Tho "grab-Mexico" advocates and tho "on-to-Panama"
shoutern talk glibly about "mani
fest destiny." It Is Inevitable, they toll us, that
wo should tako over all of tho country lying
botwecn us and the Panama cannl. Tho Louis
ville Courier-Journal goos back to Stephen A.
Douglas for quotations In point: "We must
havo Cuba and Mexico and Contral America,"
said Douglas. "Ours is a progrosslvo nation
and acquisition is lnovltable to progress. As a
young, vigorous and growing people wo must
obey tho scriptural mandate to Increase and
multiply, and, as fast as wo lncreaso and multi
ply, wo mustoxpand. It Is tho law of our bolng,
It Is manifest destiny. Yotf could not resist It
If you tried."
. Tho "manifest destiny" idea is fascinating
and alluring, but, unfortunately, has Its weak
spots. No bno can glvo any convincing reason
why destiny should tnko us to tho south sooner
than it does to tho north. Canada la Just as
fair and Inviting as is Mexico, and wo have
Alaska, to connect up with on the other side of
It in counterpart to tho canal on tho far side
of Mexico, and both are equally "manifest."

The Church Progressive.
Churchmon with mental vision reaching be
yond the .vestibule of a church are more and
more enlisting advertising as an Invaluable as
sistant. They realtze that In dealing with tho
world at largo they must utilize tho main avo
nucs of enlightenment and education the
modern 9wapaper. "Advertising," says Rev.
Dernard Vaughan, tho noted Iondon preacher,
"Is tho art of arresting the attention of tho pub
lic and telling whoro best to find what it most
wants. Why havo wo music, ritual and preach
ing in church If not to advertise tho supplies wo
possess? Tho end in view being so splendid,
wo are more than Justified in advertising as tho
moBt legitimate means of drawing the public
attention." Rov. Vaughan strikes tho koynoto
of religious forward movoment.
Distrust of legislatures.
Whenevor a legislature Is in session in Ne
braska the question most eagerly asked by the
public is, "Whon will It adjourn?" The legis
lature Is viewed as a necessary evil to bo tol
erated as woll as may be, but to be gotten rid,
of as soon as possible.
Wo are apt to havo tho impression that this
odium attaches to our own particular legisla
ture, and not .to other legislatures, but we may
assure ourselves the condition, instead of being
unlquo. Is general In practically all the states.
That it 1b tho same in Alabama as in Nebraska
may easily bo gathered from an article con
tributed to tho current North American Review
by Governor O'Neal of that state, In which ho
endeavors to find tho causes for tho distrust of
stale legislatures and to tell how that distrust
may bo mitigated, If not removed.
Governor O'Neal asserts that while disap
pointment with results achieved by legislatures
has brought down upon them all sorts of prohi
bitions, restrictions and limitations upon tholr
power, yet, notwithstanding these efforts at re
form, tho legislative output has not been im
proved. Governor O'Neal thinks tho remedy is
to widen again the legislative nuthorlty, and so
euro responsibility by increasing tho powors anl
duties of tho executive. He wants annual ses
sions, larger salaries, more expeditious pro
cedure, smallor membership, bigger constituent
districts, and, above nil, amplor veto powors.
Although a domocrat and chief executlvo ot
a state In tho heart of tho solid south, Governor
O'Neal, let It be noted, doos not even hint at the
Initiative, referendum or other form of direct
law-making to remove tho distrust In the legis
lature, but puts his chief reliance In strengthen
ing tho executive. ""Wo should not undertake
to abolish,, but rather to reform our law-making
bodies,' Is his conclusion, "and to make our
state legislatures what they wore Intended to be
deliberative assemblages, not timid or vacil
lating, swept by every temporary breeze or pop
Nature Faking Again.
As If tho war-germ wero in tho atmosphere,
wo 8oo a chanco for nnother sot-to over nature
faking as the outcome of n declaration that the
Invention of tho spineless cactus is a fake. The
credit for producing the spineless cactus, as we
nre all aware, has been claimed for Luthor Dur
bank, the plant wizard, but hero comeB tho
usually peaceful Dr. Dessey, who ranks as high
ns any of thorn as a botany expert, and says
thero was no necessity of breeding a spineless
cactus for, feeding to cattle or for any other
put pose, becauso thero aro many natural spine
less cactuses to bo found, and no self-respecting
cow would eat one, anyway.
Now, If that controversy had arisen betweon
certain other naturalists wo are sure thero
would bo no settlement by mediation or arbitra
tion, for one or tho other would ' be made to
swallow tho cactus, spines and all. In view,
howovor, of tho proved noncombatant disposi
tions of both Dr. Dessey nnd Prof. Durbank, wo
bellovo it will not be necessary to call out the
Charity, Cold and Hot.
The chlof burden of all tho talk at the chari
ties and corrections meeting recently lield hero
was that charity should bo systematically and
scientifically co-ordinated, tho Ills of tho body
toclal, like tho Ills of tho body corporal, should
be treatod by oxports familiar with causes and
effects anj applying remedies both preventive
and corrective. Tho haphazard, off-hnnd distri
bution of alms was properly pronounced to bo
wasteful, inoffoctlvo and only brooding more
poverty by encouraging dependency and destroy
ing Incentive to' self-help. Assistance to the
unfortunate should bo oxtended through organ
ized and specialized agencies under contrallzdd
'supervision to, prevent duplication, and to glvo
Just tho kind of nld needed. If all our charita
blo efforts wore combined In this way tho re
sources available for them would be conserved,
nnd tho porcentago of cases successfully han
dled vastly Increased.
All this will be ungrudgingly conceded;
nnd the fact that system- Is ns osaentlal to effl-cli-ncydh
charity ns,1n business can n'ot beoni
trovcrted.oyot the personal giving an"d' the-Unscientific
hand-outs continue becauso in many
ii. stances charity must bo'sorved hot or not at
all. With most poople tho chord of sympathy
la struck on tho spur of tho moment, and tho
responBo colnos by impulse regardless whether
it is Buccorlng morltorlous need or merely pro
moting ImpdBture. It would bo a cold world
Indeed If tho sight of apparent suffering or
neglect did not stir up compassion.
The real problom of our organized and co
ordinated charities is to got the warmth into it
that characterizes tho disorganized personal
giving. Not charity cold, but charity hot, or at
least not lacking warmth, must bo included in
tho ingredients of tho prescription that Is to
alleviate or cure social dependency.
Catching the Passing Breeze.
Catching tho passing breeze Is tho llfo of
trado in moro ways than one, as witness tho
haste of tho book publishers to push volumes
about Mexico, while public attention is riveted
in that directions Fast on tholr heels aro tho

ing reels of Mexican incidents snap-shotted in
action. Tho pext turn of tho wheel will glvo
us tho Mexican background for tho sensational
melodrama, and tho Mexican flavor will per

carried tho roflox of tho Philippines after the
war with Spain. It Mexico does not soon mod

MOTHER'S DAY, 1914.
When waves dash high.
When the rough winds cry,
When the song ot life's sea Is a moan,
When clouds grow dark
And threaten the barque,
When I'm out on the great waste alone
Whose voice do I hear,
In the midst of my fear.
Softly lulling my thoughts to rest,
Whose face do I see.
Calm and prayerful, by me?
Always Mother's, the dearest and best
Oh! often her voice
Mad", my sad heart rejoice,
In thOBO old days, that long since are
When Joy would expand .
At the touch of her hand,
And deep darkness give way to the dawn.
Tears were soon dried
With her at my side,
And sorrow and pain would not stay
When Mother came near,
, With her smile or her tear
All my troubles soon vanished away.
Today, her sweet voice
Makes my sad heart rejoice,
As in those old days, long since fled
As memory flowers.
In love's golden bowers.
Peep through tho leaves that are dead.
Mother's soft touch,
That I long for so much,
I can feel on my furrowed brow still
And can (see thoso dear eyes.
That could never disguise,
With mother-love-llght again fill. .
'Twas Mother who knew
Of the false and the true
Of the heartache, tho sorrow and bliss.
Perhaps I may find
Another as kind,
In the next world, but never In this.
When Peace, like a dove,
Breathed her mcssago of love
Overflowing the heart with Its Joy
'Twaa Mother who blessed,
As they left the home nest.
The dear fledgling girl and boy.
I'll write her today,
(I will not delay)
That my dear, loving mother may see
There Is much I would do
For the one kind and true,
Who has sacrificed so much for me.
I'll send her, I say,
A letter, today,
That great Joy to the loved one will brlngi
Or, back to the nest
Where the fledgling found rest.
Fly once more to the sheltering wing.
GRACE WILES HALL.
Comfort in motoring has a new meaning
with the Packard one-man top.
This top is easily raised or lowered hy one
person. Sockets clamp to ends of windshield
stanchions, eliminating straps. Curtains
over all doors, except the left front door,
arranged to open with the door.
Because it combines advanced features of
convenience with its maximum service
qualities, the Packard car appeals most
strongly to exacting motorists.
