Crops and Crop Valnei.
Thos-'who believe In the pnychology theory
of buslneos conditions ought to find immense
compensation in the government s latest 1914
crop statement, showing 'that the farms of the
I'nltcd States this year produced crops valued
at f 5,0(8,742,000. It means that the American
farmer Pockets for his year's work $104,000,000
more than 'be rfld last year despite the loss of
$418,000,000 to cotton planters on lint alone
Is a result of the European war. This year's
whes,t and corn crop proved to be the most valu
ahle Vn record, with wheat and apples breaking
records for production and the potato crop neirf
to the largest ever raised. '
No matter wha folks may think of condi
tions generally, they cannot reasonably misin
terpret the meaning of these facta and figures.
In the firjt place, they mean that much new
wealth, for this country. Of course, the general
effect bt the great crops wou'.d be more apparent
to us now but for the counteracting influences
of 0i war. Vet, on the other hand, what If,
with tho war and its consequences, we had ex
perlenced a crop failure instead-of a record
breaking crop In the country? Then we would
have had causo for complaint.

The capture of the bold little German cruiser,
the Einden,' which bad wrought so much destruc
tion for the British, might have added a good
deal of seal to that celebration in London char
acterized by the thrilling speeches of Kitchener
and Asqtilth hftd it come about a little sooner.

More significant, however, than this Incident
are the speeches of Iofd Kitchener and Premier
Asqulth. The former declared that aside from
the troops reserved from the provinces and those
on ihe field,. England had now 1,250,000 men
drilling and eager for the front. "And yet I
must, have men, and still more men," he said.
And said the prem1er,"Thts Is going to be a long
war." " All of' which, evidently, Is meant to
inspire the highest determination in every Brit
ish subject,' though It may at the same time be
taken at Us face value. . ,s .
We on this side will hope, however, that Pre
mier Asqulth did not mean all his words might
imply, as to the duration of the 'war. In the
awful horror and slaughter there Is this one grim'
consolation,, that ,ach toll of disaster brings the
end of the war nearer.

Various civic organizations are discussing
the' desirability of a number of municipal enter

legislation, similarly la the late campaign
candidates on the legislative ticket talked much
about laws 'they were going to enact to. help
bring about these projects,' Sifted down to bed
rock,, however, the establishment of a municipal
farm, the building of' a wbfXhouse.'the purchase
of lighting plants, the! ojstijlng.o public baths,
the acquisition of ;tnore parks "ami playgrounds,
each and every one Is a question of money much
more than of authority. Either city or county

"Perjury has been committed In every di
vorce case I have ever heard," says a Chicago
Judge.. , And -there is reason to believe that per
jury Is almost, If not quite, as prevalent In many
other classes of litigation. At any rate,' as
every Judge, lawyer and many laymen, especially
those acting as Jurors, must know, It Is far too
common' for the peace of mind of, a people who
bank on- the courts for Impartial justice. It Is
not enough that courts and lawyers discover the
existence of the evil; they ought to take the lead
in curing It.., It seems to us that with the
proper determination on the part of those in
"charge of the administration of Justice) perjury
on the witness stand could ooa be eradicated,
or; at least, reduced to the very minimum.

A Dead Issue! Oh, Ko!
Aa S atkt Issue the Thlr4 ward In Omaha is a
dead Issue, which Is not likely aoon to be resurrected.
The people of the rest of the state are too busy
with mor important matters to waste any- time on
the Third ward. What Is needed moat U legislation
and setrulatlon. for the whole elate. Nor is it wise
or Just to denounce .the. whole population of
Omaha bcoauae It has a ward or two of political
dlareputablea. Lincoln Star.' ' . . S
Whlla this sounds fair, the Star man' does not
irasp the whole significance of the political famo
as It is played. lu Omaha. If be were thoroughly
familiar with conditions here, the Star man
would know that. "the Third ward machine" has
been "smashed" at every successive, election for
the last twenty years, but. that It remains the
pernia-ient stock tn trade of all the take reform
ers and ambitious demagogues who seek reward
of public place for fighting this terrlbie ogre.
He would also know that the Third ward casts
fewer votes than any other v ard la Omaha; that
its population Is mostly transient, because It con
tains all the principal hotels in the city; that as
a consequence, many of the same people-who
vote In the upper wards at one election find
themselves as guests of our hotels. voting la tho
Third ward at another election, and vice versa
Then, too, he would know that the honest elec
tions law has given us chemically-pure elections
In the Third ward aa well as Iq every other w ard.
. , But aside from all this,, how dull Omaha
politics would be without the Third ward bogey
to scare the, timid and laexprienced into the
told of the good shepherds, who alone can save
us from destruction by this monster.' .

OMAHA, Nov.. 10,-To the Editor of The
lire: There seems to be considerable
confusion concerning the laws and rul
Init regarding the salo of cocaine.
The, federal government, through a re

and the ''pure food" or chemistry divi
sion, are slowly hedging It about and

lS-cent and 20-cent envelopes contain'

are ' now beginning to show effect aa
there are many now begging physicians
to write prescriptions for them and these
so-called d6pe flenda have been doing
considerable thieving ,at noon time from
doctors' end dentists' offices.
This federal ruling of the ' pure' food
department requires the Importer o ther
of the ooCa leaves from which- cocaine:
la made or all cocaine Imported, that
every bit be declared to the bureau ot
chemistry at Washington and the Im
porter agrees also not to sell any Of It or
use any ot it in any manner deleterious
to the people ot the t'nlted Btates and to
keep a record of each 'parson, firm' or
corporation sold. . ."
Also the manufacturers ot cocaine in.
this country must do the .same thing and
all the wholesale houses also. Then- the
retail druggists must all report and keep
a record with the wholesale houses.
This Is maklncr the druggists think, a
they do not know what will come next. .
Aa we understand It, there Is to be no
more manufacture or sale of that light,
feathery crystal known as flake- cocaine
which is' the best form or It, as It Is so
readily soluble In water.
-This ruling then ' says: "This declarw-.

physician writes a' prescription "for. his

The Nebraska law prohibits the refill-

the- pure food department, which are
made in accordance with the federal law

Hje coming legislature to do something
to stop the pernicious sale of this drug.
It might ba well for it to look Into the
matter and conform as tar as possible
with the federal government, which can
do far more to eradicate it than any
state law or city ordinance. ' -

The foregoing lines of a rollicking sailors' sons
shows the spirit which animated the crewaof the
phantom-Ilka cruisers of Germany which have roamed
the southern seas, where he . British navy ia not
strong, and preyed upon' the commerce of the allies.
Only two cruisers scored a record worth while the
cruiser Dresden In the South Atlantic and the Emden
In the Pacific and Indian oceans, where it haa Just
met its match and went to an Inglorious finish on the
beach of Coco Island.
The work of the Emden In the east in three short
months rivaled the operations of the confederate
cruiser Alabama, which kept the seas for twenty-two
months and cruised all over the world destroying
union ships and their cargoes, valued at more than
ST.OW.eoO, before the United Rtatea steamer Kearaarge
sent It to the bottom oft Cherbourg.
One of the Etudes' Victims.
The climbing sun waa biasing in the heavens,' the
sea running in long, oily swells, and the dun-oolored
British tram per Clan Matheson waa nosing Its way
nut of the Bay of Bengal toward tho Indian ocean.
No breese shook tho dirty brown ' canvas stretched
over the deck forwsrd, nor corrugated the glassy
surface of the ses, relates the New York World. In
the shade of the canvas a few Lascars sprawled,
stolidly passing the stem of their narghileh, or dron
ing weirdly on their pipes. . No other sound in the
ship, but the- thumping of its engines and the-dancing
mutter of the water as it curled away from Its fore- :
foot Where the decks were bare the sun drew the
pitch out of the seams and set It seething like a
caldron. And the cook's galley smelled to heaven.
Ham Donovan, the mate, let himself down with a j
thump besldea Orson, the third officer of the tramp, (
In the shads forward. ' '
"I'll tell you." he aald with an oath, "It's hot."1 "I
' ."It Is," replied Orson; "beastly 'ol."
He said nothing more for a while. Then, presently I
"But it ain't the 'eat which ia a-troubtln' me. .It's
them Dutchmen. One of then bleedtnk cruisers scut
tled six ships last week. I know, for I saw their crews 1
put ashore in Madras. I don't want that to 'appen
to us; I want to get 'ome, I do. Leastways, I don't
want to be stuck In thla blasted, amelly-'ole no longer."
"Terra, ye're mad!" exclaimed the mate-. "They've
got that Dootchman before this, and you may lay to
. "Well, if they 'ave, I 'aven't 'card of It" r '
. A moment later the lookout aloft sang out "Ball
ho!'! and there was a rush of feet forward. Away ff
the port bow there was a faint smudge against the
"Bmoksl" said Orson. "If It's one of them bloomin
It waa smoke. Gradually It became darker, more
defined. After a time a mast popped over the rim of.
the sea, then another. Then the amokeatsck, and fi
nally a gray, scarcely discernible hull.
"A man-of-war, by the powers!" exclaimed the third
officer. i v
The Lascars crowded in the port rail chattering
excitedly, and pointing at the stranger. - ' .
The stranger, whatever it was, iwtld straight on,
and when well within range hovo to, broadside, on to
tba Claa Matheson. Suddenly the sir reverberated
with a heavy boom, and a round shot plumped Into
the sea a few hundred yards to starboard of the tramp.
The anginas were stopped and the captain ran up the
Union Jack. Immediately a launch was lowered from
the stranger and cams plunging and dipping in the
direction ef the Clan Matheson.
Crashing- Plalaat. '
.""As soon as it rams near enough for the men of the
tramp to distinguish. the uniforms of those in the
launch, and that of the officer standing in the stern,
pandemonium broke loose. Whan within hailing dis
tance the launoh stopped, and the officer in the stem,
brscing himself against the roll of the sea, demanded
to know, in a roaring, raucous voice, who and what
the tramp was. The captain shouted this information '
back, and a few things more Jriat thuet have Surprised
the ' officer 0a -the launch.
"Stand by I" the latter roared again. "I'm coming
aboard." The officer from the launch came over the ,
side and stated that he was Lieutenant Von der Heyde
of H. M. 8. Emden, and that ha had orders, for them
to vacate their' ship without delay, as it was to be
There was nothing for it but to obey, and obey they
did. They ware transferred rapidly, and soon the
whole crew waa huddled on the cleared decks of th
8udden!y,on of the Eroden's foor-lnch guns banged
out, and a ehell plunged into the sea about fifty yards
beyond the Clan Matheson. The next tore a great
japing hole tn Its port bow. Then, while Its craw
were Basing tn awe at their ship, a crashing broadside
divided the air; the, tramp lurched suddenly to port
and the next Instant heaved upward In a 'terrifio
eruption of flinders, boats, davits spars and smoke-,
stacks. Than ita stem upended. It took a violent dive'
forwsrd, and with a last tremendous splash slid for
ward beneath the surface of the sea.
Whew war broke out the Einden waa on the China
station with four other German warships, ths Scharn
horst. ths Genelaenau, the Nuernberg and the Stettin.
Of these, two are reported badly battered and taken
to Hongkong by the British. But the Emden mads
its way south past the Philippines and along the coast
et North Borneo through the Straits of Malacca up
the Malay peninsula and into the. Indian ocean.
It arrived in the Bay of Bengal on September 10,
and In four days captured seven rich prises, six of
which H sank. Steaming due west, it next appeared

You've probably noticed that the

The detachable sedaa and : coupa

driving again, take off ths winter, top,
store it away and tit the extension
Practically two cars in one great
big feature that is making a powerful
appeal to most fall buyers. -
No other city is in a better position to cash in on im
pending1 prosperity than Omhik so let's don't pull the

A good way to do this is to get a few oopies of Pan
