While preparations for inaugurating tho

with roluctant acceptance on the part ot the
authorities in chargo of a situation that loavos

out Practically all tho national banks havo
qualified as reserve bank membors, but com
paratively few of tho state institutions have
taken steps to como in. Tho point is mado by
banking experts that without them tho system
will lack completeness, because the preponder
ance of banking power in this country Is with
the state banks. Recent compilations show re
sources of state banks of about fourteen billions
as against resources of national banks of about
eleven billions. Already tho talk In Washington
foreshadows amendment of tho law to make It
more attractive to stato banks by permitting
them also to hold reserves and by exempting

there is no likelihood that tho proposed changes
will be considered at the presont session of con

OMAHA, July 4,-To the Editor of Tho
Beo: Heretofore I have had something
to say about the 111 considered action of
the school board In Important matters.
Tho decision of the board with reference
to Prof. Nathan Bernstein Is, to my mind,
dishonest. It Is evidence ot the tact that
the board holds Its contract obligations
lightly. It Is notice to tho corps of teach
ers on the permanent roll that uny of
them may at any tlmo be dismissed, no
matter how efficient In the school room
they may be. Nobody has ever iilleged
that Mr. Bernstein Is not efficient. As
a matter of fact, ho Is distinctively a
teacher who has the power to Impart In
struction to young men and women. He
makes nn Impression upon the student,
and he makes It easy for the student to
comprehend the subject In hand. Ho has
been of very great service to the Omaha

Injury done to the public schoot system
by the Commercial High as It Is con
ducted." When tho board violates principles of
good faith and deposes 'a teacher, as In
this case. It does a positive injury to the
schools. It sets a bad example to tho
students. Moreover, the best teachers In
the school will tako notice of the unfair
and Unlawful treatment accorded Mr.
Bernstein and take the first opportunity
to look elsewhere for engagements to
teach. A school board which disregards
Its contracts with the teachers cannot ex

SOUTH OMAHA, July 5. To tho Editor
of The Bee: Tho meeting referred to aa
"secret session" held on the evening ot
July 1 waa attended by 130 employes of
tho bureau, and secret meetings aro not
ordinarily held at library hall. Your
article in The Bee would lead the public
to believe that all employes of the Bureau
of Animal Industry receive salary of
Jl.SOO, when as a matter of fact not more
than one-fourth ot the bureau employes
are receiving a salary In excess of 11,200
per annum, the remainder ranging from
WW to Sl.SOO. We cannot believe that
anyone will be deceived by the compari
son between tho laborer in the pacRlng
house and the employe of the government
whose work la such that the people of the
United States have confidence In the le
gend, "U. S. Inspected and Passed."
Theso employes all havo their positions
by reason of having passed competitive
.civil service examinations, which re
quire among other things that the veterl
rnrlans bo graduates ot accredited
schools; the meat inspectors practical ex
perience of not less than five years In
tho curing and handling of meats, the
sslstants and stock examiners not less
than three years practical experience in
the handling of stock, in addition to an
educational test for all classes. Clerks

reason that he represents a district con

In tho United States, and we believe that
his selection was an honor to him, to
Omaha, and the great stato of Ne

approval of the house committee irre
spective of party lines, and bureau em
ployes expect this bill to stand entirely
on its merits.

They ore not and never wero bosses.
The real bosses ot this day are such
fellows aa La Follette, Cummins, Rooso-
velt with Kenyon, Norrls and Brlstow as
smaller bosses. The primary system has
done more to bring forth such fellows
as the ones I have named than any other
one thins and tho primary system has
tended to disrupt the republican party as
I predicted would be tho case when the
agitation was first started for this "rich
man's system." None but rich men can
afford to run for office for they are
compelled to make two campaigns and
rran of moderate circumstances cannot
afford to make two campaigns in order
Tho banquet made men who wero there
feel like they wore at an old time re
publican convention where enthusiasm
was contagious and many said they wish
the old tlmo convention system was in
vogue again today aa it would tend to
rouse old-time enthusiasm.
It 111 becomes some ot these western up
starts to denounce men who have made the
republican party and the party that has
made them. If Kenyon wants to heal up
the sores ot the past, he had better
quit ripping them open by denouncing
men or me republican party wno are
simply republicans without any "pro
greeslve" foolishness about It. The men
who have stood by the party through

ot this republic aa are those who hav

system of primary nominations and they
are better republicans. F. A. AGNEW.
When Onr Urnnrifnthers Ate erf.
When tho increased cost ot living Is discussed
today, the complainant usually begins by quoting the
prices of rib roast or sirloin steak. In 1745, tho best
beef sold in Boston at 12 cents a pound, but from
colonial days down to a very late period meat waa
supplied In a most primitive manner. As late as the
'70s everybody, even In considerable towns, kept
chickens, and nearly everybody a pig and cow, and
all this live stock was permitted to roam at will
through the streets, Pigs were butchered In the
back yards of private residences, and the carcass
hung from a convenient apple tree. Tho butcher
bought what cattle he could and at times the meat
was excellent In quality, but more often tho carcass
was that of a cow that no longer gave milk, or of a
bull that had lost his bloom, or or a steer whose
work under the yoke was no longer efficient; and
invariably a steak for dinner was heralded by the
vigorous pounding with tho potato masher wielded
by the stalwart arm of the cook. The average qual
ity of beef was so poor that pork ws rightly pra
fcrrcd as food, and was sold for double the prlco
of beef. In 1737 Francis Fllktn notes a sale of "twenty
pounds of boul btfe" for 78 cents, which would be 3
cents a pound; cheap enough for "blfe," be it ever
Chnnge In Cattle Itnlslng Methods.
In the '70s tho sportsn.cn Joined forces with tha
Indians and with repeating arms these two classes of
savages exterminated the buffalo. Tnis slaughter
cleared the plains for tho stockmen, and In a few
years these free public lands were occupied by over
(0,000,000 cattle. Theso vast herds gave the packers
their opportunity to absorb the meat trade ot tho
country, and they set the price to t)e paid for the
live cattle as well as the price demanded from the
consumer. Of late years the best of these public
lands have been bought and fenced In by tho farmers
so that the acreage of free land open to the cattle
men has yearly become smaller and its average fer
tility also less. Hence cattle that sold on the hoof at
114 six years ago, brought $30 In 1913. Wo can scarcely
look for a reduction in price aa the result of impor
tations, though an advance may for a time thereby
bo checked. When the cattleman Is compelled to
own his grazing land the price of beef will naturally
advance until It equals or exceeds that of the "70s,
but wo cannot expect to return to the careless, un
sanitary methods of tho old days, and it Is expensive
to be sanitary.
Hen Frnlt nnd Various Other Frnits.
The growing scarcity of beef sufficiently accounts
for the Increase In price of mutton, pork, poultry,
fish and eggs, and other things that the housekeeper
would naturally atrlvo to substitute for beef. In the
eighteenth century In New Tork eggs sold for 9
cents a dozen. They sold for 6 cents a dozen In
Mississippi In 1892. There is one compensation today;
for, with the high prices and cold storage, wo get
stale eggs very rarely. Twenty years ago stale eggs
wero common, Wheat sold in New York In 1720 nt
from SI to 11.60 a bushel. In London In 1757 it sold
nt from $3 to 12.60 a bushel. Eighteenth century prices
for apples were S7.S0 ta barrel In Scotland and 11.60 in
New York. Oranges boat twice what they do now,
and lemons three times as much. Our grandfathers
nover saw a banana and our fathers paid 10 cents
piece for them, Now the corporation that brings
them to our doors nt 10 cents a dozen should In
tho Judgment of the very. wise be taxed out of ex
Hide I.fnea thnt Used to Be Bcaroew
Our eighteenth century ancestors paid three times
as much aa we now pay ror cioves, auspice ana
chocolate, four times as much for cinnamon and pep
per, ten times as much for washing blue, eleven
times as much for rice, twelve times aa much for
coffee, and thirteen times as much for sago. Sugar
that can be bought today for 5 cents a pound sold
in tho seventeenth, eighteenth and nineteenth cen
turies at from 10 to 28 cents. Althollgn the sugar
peopte seem willing to acknowledge that they are the
most disreputable trust In the lot, wo must realize
that they have done their full snare to reduce the
cost of living. Tea waa brought to England early
In the seventeenth century as a curiosity, and sold
at 60 a pound. During tho balance of the century,
with increasing Imports. It sold at $15 a pound. In
1753 the Importations were 4,000.000 pounds annually,
and the average price waa 15 a pound. In 1763 the
American colonies consumed 1,600,000 pounds of tea.
and paid from S1.EO to 115 a pound. In 1743 Francis
Fllkln exchanged two pounds of tea for a load of
hav. Today we pay 80 cents a pound for a quality
of tea that cost II in 1900, and 5 in colonial days. -

Increased out of all reason pure water. Our fathers
found It everywhere, to be had for the taking; but
modern sanitation has befouled every stream, pois
oned every wtll and rendered every spring an object
ot suspicion. If thero be a "moss-covered bucket"
left anywhere, It would have to be sterilized before
using. Untold millions have been spent to give cities
nnd towns pure water, and after we have paid the
resulting taxes we are warned by boards of health
to boll tho water beroro annum, xno wor wo
get In the autumn we are told we brought with us
from the country, where the water is only less
dangerous than tho milk, usually a city araws us
water from the same stream In which it deposits its
vage with a shrug for the towns below and a
curse for those above. In the summer of 1913 a nsn,
by somo mischance, found itself In the Passaic river
and tried to escape by Jumping. Tho event waa so
extraordinary that it was soberly chronicled on the
front pages of the New York papers. Yet there was
a time, not so many years ago, when this stream
supplied much of the food of the people who lived
on its banks. We pay from 10 to 15 cents a gallon
for water with a modest pedigree, but a high class
certificate of purity costs ua 40 cents, it we return the

II. Q. Wells tells a story ot a deaf old fisherman

motor boat near htm sprang a leak and almost im
mediately sank. To the great indignation of the un
fortunate occupants of the motor boat the old man
took not the slightest notice of their plight but rowed
calmly along, puffing serenely at his clay pipe. They
shouted, but he was too deaf to hear. Finally, they
managed to swim to his boat and scramble on board.
He seemed surprise to see them, end was still
more taken aback when one ot them yelled indig
nantly at htm: "Confound youl Why didn't you lend
us a hand? Didn't you see we wero sinking?"
"Lor bless yen" he gasped in reply. "I saw ye

About the only complaint we get
is from the man who has been feed
ing his car twice to much of it
A tremendous amount of money
and pains is spent in making
Polarine a clean, carbon-free lubri
cant of the highest efficiency.
Polarine is stable at high tempera
ture, will feed freely down to zero
and is absolutely uniform
Be sure you get Polarine. If in
doubt send us a sample for analysis.
