An Inyitation to Team Work.
With Greater Omaha consolidation assured,
tinless something Blips a cog In the final stages,
we may voice the hope that the people of the
annexed territory will at once Join with its for
team work la pushing the enlarged metropolis
mill further forward.
The list part of tht campaign -for the con
solidation bill has been lti comparative freedom
from eliminations and recriminations or mani
festations of 111 will, calculated to create lasting
antagonism. While those engased In the fight
on both sides have put In their beat efforts to
persuade thelawmakert to their way of think
ing, the crossfire has pot gottrn further than
to charge one another with being animated ly
selfish motives. But conceding the sincerity of
the opponents of the merger, It will devolvp
upon them to acrept the situation and makj
good on their protestations of devotion to the
welfare of their respective communities through
a co-operative effort for Improvement all along
the line. With every one pulling on the rope at
the same time, the wheels of progress for
Greater Omaha must move steadily faster with
corresponding benefits to one and all.

Wheat Crop of the World.
The International Institute of Agriculture
has Just sent out from Its headquarters at Rome
a preliminary statement on the area sown to
rinter crops (Including wheat and rye) in the
northern hemisphere countries, and crop returns
for the southern hemisphere countries. Ths
showing is very encouraging. According to the
figures given the United States data in hands of
the Institute, an Increase in area sown In the
northern hemisphere over last year Is generally
reported, especially In the United 8tates, with
an Increase of 22 per cent In acreage, and in In
dia, with an increase of 11 per cent. Plenty of
moisture haa fallen in all the countries, and
some report an excess, but no damage to the
prospective crops.
Tha good reports on the crops in the so nth em
hemisphere are confirmed by the bulletin, es
pecially the wheat yield. Argentina, Chile Aus
tralia and New Zealand report a yield of 6K
213,1 El quintals, or a trifle under 114,000,000
bushels, an Increase of 6.3 per cent over the
1813-14 crop. The yield of other crops In the
southern hemisphere Is also large. . ,
The significance of this showing of the
world's production of wheat, and other food
stuffs is, that even with the continuance of the
war in Europe, there Is little likelihood of the
world's going hungry. Some planting will be
done In each of the countries engaged in the
war, so that an ample aupply of food seems assured.
Merchants' Week a Success.
While the bringing of retail buyers to Omaha
for the purpose of making spring purchases is
not a novelty, the present event has been the
most successful of its kind aver undertaken. It
has seen a larger number of buyers than on any
previous occasion, and tha spirit that has pre
vailed Is proof that tha advantages of buying in
Omaha are fully appreciated by the Merchants
doing business In the smaller towns. Hospitable
entertainment mingled with the facility for do
ing business has cemented more firmly the
friendship between' the business men of, the city
and of the country, and meant a continuation of
the pleasant relations thus established. Omaha's
prestige as a distributing center for wares and
goods of all kinds is steadily growing, and its
supremacy In Its territory is no longer ques
tioned. The spirit that has marked "merchants'
week" is the spirit that. will make Omaha a sUll
greater market town. .
Observers of the political kaleidoscope
should not. overlook the significance of the
changevTecently announced In the chairmanship
of the bullmooee national committee, by which
former-Senator Joseph M. Dixon of Montana Is
eliminated by the resignation route, and Is suc
ceeded by soon-to-be-former-Congressman Victor
Mardock of Kansas. The reason given for the
rtxon resignation is Inability to look after the
duties of the position without sacrificing private
Interests, bat no one would imagine Senator
Dixon giving up command if he thought the bull
moose sun were rising Instead of setting.
Equally significant Is the concealment of the
source of authority which has commissioned Mr.
Murdock to be the new chairman, for ordinarily
a committee meeting Is necessary to take such
action. 8o far is known, however, no euch meet
ing haa beea held, except possibly of the handful
of bosses no, leaders supposed to be in pos
session of the remnants of the party machinery.
Gentle Spring" ApproachetL
The first meadow lark of tha spring la re
ported to have been sighted in Elniwood park,
but Robin Redbreast, sure precursor of the
season of "ethereal mildness," lingers somewhat
behind his schedule. Nor do the snowbanks bear
an earnest ot the Immediate pendency of the
new birth of nature. Soon, however, the venture
some crocus will be found peeping up through
the frosty, sodden sod within the woodlands,
while the householder, apprehensive from past
experience, already looks ahead to the turmoil
of spring cleaning, with Its discovery of the for
gotten debris of a long and snowy winter. It will
not be long until the swelling bads will burst
into leaf and flower, and the deen rreanawar.
that makes the beauty of local lawns will be
spangled with the yellow blossoms of the peren

be on once more.
Nor can the change come any too aoonr man
kind in general is bored stiff from a surplus of
dull, drab or weeping skies, and the weather
man may turn off the winter spout aa soon aa
he likes, for Omaha has had enough.

The Political Caldron
WILT, the Dreater Omaha merger be put throuah
with the emergency clause, making It effective
ahead of the Impending municipal election?
And if It does go throuah In a form Immediately
operative, enlarging tli political war arena, whnt
chanirea will It make In the political map by which
the candidates must guide themselves?
These are the new questions suddenly brought
home to the city campaign rUtealnts by legislative
developments at Lincoln. 'Whether the emergency
clmiee will or will rot atay on the l.HI la purely
ape, ulatlve. but there are reaaons to believe that It
will. When the measure went through the eenste, it
dkt not have enough vot- on pansage to make It an
emergency lew, but several of the opponents changed
their votes, at the same time Inserting the explana
tion Into the Journal that they did so because they be
lieved. If merger was to come. It shotud be expedited
to permit the voters of the annexed iltlra and towns
to have a voice In choosing the municipal officer
elected thia spring to administer their government for
the ensiling three years. The same reasons would
apply equally to th procedure In the house-that Is
to say. If on final roll rail a safe majority la recorded
for consolidation, enough of the volca on the other
aide could he readily transferred to prevent the
elimination of the emergency clause, and give the am
bltloua ststnamen of Potith Omaha, Dundee, Benson
and Florence a chance to throw their hats Into the
city eommlsslonershlp ring if they want to.
A revleed political map. adding at least 10 pr
cent to the total vote, and bringing In groupa of
voters who have never before participated In our city
politics would necessarily Inject several elementa o?
uncertainty Into the situation. It will he natural for
fotith Omaha to demand one of the seven elective
places tn the city haJI-whelher It can enforce that
demand depending upon Its ability to present candi
date with qualification that appeal to the voters
here In Omaha. Giving South Omaha a cermmlasione--sliip,
however, would leave Omaha with only nix,
which number might still be further diminished if
ome one from other annexed territory should sue
ced In capturing one of tha places. Whatever com
bination may be made for either primary or election
will have to take Into consideration the alignment of
the new votes. Judging from previous elections, it
goes without saying that the sentiment In South
Omaha la predominantly wet. In Dundee dry, and in
Benson and Florenca more evenly divided, but the
total vote of South Omaha Is twice that of all tha
othsr auburn.' As between different Omajia candi
date, the acburhan vote may easily be the deciding
weight In the balance.
' It I hinted that several chronlo candidates are
holding back their announcement to file because of
fsara that they may be adjudged Insane, one candi
date already having been cited to appear before the
Insanity board.
Jlrst what la It In the way of qualifications or
promise that is wanted of the place hunters? One
candidate announce that If Tie be elected he will en
force all of the mandates on the statute books, a feat
which ha not been aocompllshed since Moses and
tha prophets tried their hands at law making. An
other vouchsafes the Information that he was born
in Omaha and lived here fifty years, and. therefore,
ha ahould be elected. Another man recite the fact
that two year ago while serving In the state legi.
latura ha waa Interested In a certain bill for Omaha
which should entitle him now to be connected up with
the payroll. "Bafety flrat," Is tha alogaa which atlll
another candidate has adopted for his campaign cards

Twice Told Tales

At a dinner party in Washington the conversation
turned to old-Ume customs and this llttlo story wts
told by Mrs. Leigh C. Palmer, wife, of Lieutenant
Commander Palmer of the navy: '
One afternoon Mrs. Jones paid a visit to her
friend, Mr. Smith. In a distant part of tha town, and
on her return aha proceeded to impart to Husband
Jonea the mora Important Incident of her 'call.
"And there is another, Hiram," remarked tha good
woman, aa the recital flowed on. "I don't believe tha

"They alnt!" responded Hiram, with a surprised
expression. "What makes ye think that?"
"Well. It' Jut thl way." returned Mra. Jones.

a day of smiles, when you use,
Calumet. A day of smiles for you
and for the rest of the family, too.

wasted but every baking will. come from
the oven fluffy and tasty and evenly raised.
Always insist on Calumet. Your grocer has it. .
