' Summer at the seaside resorts Is losing its standby thrill. Sea serpents tall to come across from the war zone. With a different outcome of the battle of Armageddon in 1912, every copper cable to Europe would hare been melted by this time. Up to the bour of going to press the senator bad not divulged his intention as to acquiescing in or opposing those persona-non-grata-Bryanite appointments. Aim lgland Imitating the American plan ot mobilising Inventive brains Is the most flattering bouquet tossed at Josephus Daniels since he manned the pi-box at Raleigh. The executive committee of the democratic party of Cook county, Illinois, tosses President Wilson's hat in the ring for 1916. For the first time the one-term plank gets the axe. Looking back on the Baengerfeat Illumines it as a financial as well as a musical success. And the tintlnabulatlon in the box office does sot interfere la the least with the harmony ot the choruses; Some day city councils and 'school boards and other taxing bodies will do their best to hold the tax rate down Instead of to inflate it to the high, eat legal limit but that day Is In the dim and distant future. The most gratifying newa from the aeat of war ia that Colonel Maher's typewriter battery baa not been permanently disabled, as witness its being again brought Into action on the polit ical firing line. Senator Reed of Missouri la quoted as say ing that the farmers of his state aold second grade horses and mules to the Allies at double prices. Yet there are critics who insist' that American neutrality is lopsided. Railroad traveling will presently become an Irresistible Joyride. The Gideon plan of remov ing the anvil emphasis from conversation by means of cards ot merit is bound to restore the standing room sign in the smoke rooms. It Is now said that owing to defective book keeping the exact else of the hole In the Dundee treasury may never be known. Were it not tor the consolidation, which he Dundee-ites fought so bard, no one would yet know that there was a bole in the treasury. The motorcycle relay eemonstration carry, lng a message from President Wilson from ocean to ocean, finished eight hours behind schedule time. Not a bad showing at that, but for fast communication roost people will continue to use the telegraph, the telephone and the wireless toe a little while yet. . r Vartoua claimant of tba I I Smith etock of goods ara atlll wrangling aa between Jurisdiction of federal anA stabs court a.

Tbe Eastland tragedy reminds us that It Is time to check up once more on safety first in every direction where people may be exposed to undue risk. Perhaps it takes a periodic catas trophe, like a big fire or wreck or boat-sinking, to bring us back from carelessness and reckless ness to common-sense precaution, for that is the only possible lesson it can teach. Fortunately, we have no mammoh excursion steamers In Omaha, but we have a lot of extra hazard places that should be checked up from time to time. FirstThe theaters and moving picture houses, which have multiplied so fast and whose patrons are so largely women and children. Second The bathing beaches, the boata and boat landings in our parks and nearby lakes that have already furnished more than their share of accidents. Third The grandstands at ball parks, speed ways, race tracks and athletic fields, which, though used but seldom, must bold large crowds. Fourth The schools, churches, tabernacles, pavilions and dance halls where people congre gate and require safe exits. Fifth Factories, hospitals, hotels and other institutions that house large numbers entitled to a minimum of fire risk. Sixth Bridges and viaducts that undergo uneven strata and are liable to deterioration. What we aay here does not mean that any of these places in or about Omaha are unsafe, but that eternal vigilance is the only preventive of mishap, and that .the present is the auspicious moment to make aure there is nothing amiss that can be remedied. Bed Cross and the European War. From headquarters at Washington comes word that the American Red Cross hospital units, operating on European battlefields, are to be withdrawn because of lack of supporting funds. This brings again to the tore the im mense amount of humanitarian service this coun try has performed during the progress of the European war, and presents a much more seri ous question for the belligerents to face that of themselves taking care of their own sick and -wounded. From the beginning America has assumed a large part of the responsibilities that rightly de volve on the nations engaged in the war. From this country has been sent out relief in every form to every country In Europe. In the wake of battle, where the armies were engeged solely in spreading death and terror, Americans have come to bind up the hurts and salve humanity Ifrom the wreckage. Belgium, Poland, Serbia, destroyed by the wide-sweeping ravages of war, have received from us the relief otherwise un obtainable. Part of this ' work Is to be con tinued, for special funds have been set apart for it, but the general work of tbe Red Cross is set to cease on October 1. The hearts and the purses of our people are alike open to the suffering millions of Europe, and it need not be looked on with surprise if means are yet found to continue the Red Cross activities In Europe. Whatever happens, the contrast between the American expenditures for relief and the European extravagance for de struction will never be lees than It is now. ' "Let the Battle Proceed." With the reputation of never looking for a fight and never dodging one, Colonel John O. Maher has wheeled his type-writer battery into line and fired a salvo, announcing tbe opening of the expected battle over the Bryan-Hitchcock selections. With the echoes of this salute reverberating across the hills and downs of Ne braska, we may expect at once a general' engage ment, and such freedom of firing as will make the local councils of democracy a combination ot Donnybrook and Kilkenny. Tbe long delay in the distribution of tbe plums allowed-hope to spring In many a breast, and in some it took such root as to become almost permanent. It la not easy to uproot such aspirations, secret though they may have been, and the faithful will surely make the welkin ring with their pro test. "We may expect much frank dlscuseion not only of Mr. Bryan's family affairs, but also of the inner circle of the senator's editorial room. But It will take a powerful lot ot objection from the rank and file to secure a revision of the ap pointments jnade. Experiment Worth Watching The department of animal husbandry ot the University of Nebraska is about to embark on an experiment, the outcome of which will be ot much service to the farmers of Nebraska, It has to do with the feeding of lambs In summer and fall, and will be looked to to aettle several very essential points ot which the experts at present are not agreed. In other experiments in feeding thla department baa added much to the useful knowledge of the etock raiser, and this lateat research work should be of as much service as any. To determine the best ration, the most successful care, and tbe speediest way of bringing stock of any kind to marketable con. dltion, and the surest way to profit for the feeder, has been but a part of the work of the atate'a great agricultural school, but in this it has served the public far beyond Its cost. As a food animal-producing state, Nebraska is fortu nate in having auch an Institution, so well equipped and direc ted. . i Under Arreit at Bayonne. The law of New Jersey is to be given a trial at the handling of the disorders in connection with the strike at the Standard Oil worka at Bayonne. The sheriff has placed under arrest one of the company's managers and thirty-two or the armed guards employed at the works, charging them with inciting riot. This action appears to be for the purpose of upholding the law of the state, and to show that It la not neces sary for private concerns to arm their employes In order to secure proper protection for property. Tbe strike of a number of unorganised workmen at the refineries baa been the occasion of a great deal of disorder, and several of the men have been killed by tbe armed guards. The sheriff has from the first Insisted that be is capable of handling the situation, and baa refused to call for militia. lie disarmed the strikers, and his arresting the guards indicates that New Jersey is not Colorado, and that the law is able to deal with disorder on both sides. "Safety first" is a good slogan for folks on land as well as In the water. Culls from Collier's Tha Dletlartlaa arlr. NEHRA8KA la an asiirjiliural state, aa all know who have traveled peat Ita teeming arrea or lodged In Its hotel. But men do not usually admire that which la near to their own Uvea: tha unusual thing has the better chance for applause. It Is cheering, than, to find that Oovernor Morehead'a committee, In search of Nebraaka'a moat oMstlngulahcd cltlxen. has honored tha atata entomologist. Dr. Law rence Bruner. of the Cnlvereity of Nebraska. When the chinch bug waa ravaging wheat f lei da by the mile he found a paraalte which destroyed the pest and de vised means to apply tha aorely needed remedy. Per hape this was Prof. Bruner'a most Important and dramatic victory, but p na muet not alao the ateady helpfulness of his yeara of work In tha small cam jwlgns which man Is always waging and must forever wage against tha blind greed of that swarming insect world which la all about tie. It la not ao much that millions of dollars were saved, but rather that tha victory ever nature waa won for tha men of intelli gence and care: that earth waa made more of a noma and less of a gambling place. Thla la not the least of the mighty aervlcet of science, and Nebraska does well fo be proud of Ma first cltlaen.

Mnrkle. A reader dug tha following letter out or Brother Victor Rose tee's Omaha Bee, and sent it In to us In recent morning' a mall: To tha Editor nT The Bee: It la a sad thing to poor, Billy people of tha twentieth century complaining of the high coat of living and saving that they can't live on salaries of 00 all tha way up to $000. For fifteen yeara my salary haa ranged from ISO to and t-have a good sum of money In tha bank, a wife and alx children. 1, manage thlnga on a common sense basis. No foolish ness. Nickels spent on moving pictures and candy and lea cream are wasted. Money spent on finery ia wasted. In my family we have nothing In tha way of Inxurlee Just the plain everyday food. I do tha buying myaelf. Cereals, oatmeal, and similar foods form tha bulk of our diet. We buy one pound of atenk a week. I hava a piece of It every day because I need meat to sustain my atrength for my work. The rest of tha family do not need meat In fact, are better oft without It. The only luxury we buy la tobacco, and the cost of that cornea to only 40 cents a week. Wo save much on buying bread that Is a day old, thua in creasing the buying power of our money 100 per cent. Cheese I find a good substitute for butter and more nutritious, aa well aa coating only half aa much. It la a very simple thing to raise a family on. a email salary If a man just haa common sense and doesn't leave tha buying to his wife, and sees to It that trades men give him a dollar"a worth for every dollar ha apenda. I hava only been In Omaha a year, but 1 sua ran tee I hava made my money go further than any other worktngmaa In the city, and I can prove it If nacaaaary. A. B. , M.IC K.L.E. Our stenographer passed this on to us with tha following oomment: ' . , People read thla sort of thing and then wonder why some of us prefer to remain old maids! Well, there's a great deal to be said on that.' In the first place, If our stenographer were Mra. Mlckle, wa think that something sudden and surprising would happen in tha Mlckle family. In the second place, a home and six children, even with Mr. Mickla thrown 1n, are batter than being en old maid. Finally, wa want to know more about Mlckle. Maybe ha wrote the letter tn Irony. Maybe he doesn't exist. Maybe one of The Bee's bright young men Invented him to add to tha gayety of nations. Won't Brother Rose, water be, kind enough, at our request, to send one of his reporters out to see Mr. Mickla and tell tha world about him? If he is a real human being, there are a lot of things wa should Ilka to say about him, and not all of them to hla discredit His Ideas are not all bad. When ha eats alt the meat in tha family he la doing tha rest of tha family a real aervlce. The main point in which ha ia all wrong la his distrust of Ms wifo in tha matter of buying. Hie case may be an axoeptlon. but In nlr.e casea out of ten the wife Is a batter buyer than tha husband. After all Is said and done, tha outstanding fact about Mtokle la that ha want and did it. He did marry and ha did raise a family. For that achievement, compared to him, all tha whining young men who complain they can't af ford it are merely objecta of varying degrees of con tempt. Aa laaportawt wbjaet. Wa wilt take more Interest In that fine old Billy season question.

A Ban iFrancisco man talis of e flower, growing abundantly near Santa Barbara, which la peculiarly attractive to bees. "Now, aaya he, "there was a young Californlan, particularly fond of honey, who used to visit a certain Kanta Barbara hostelry because auch a aruperlor aort of .thla nectar was to be had there. "This young man married in due course, and tha weddmg trip Included Banta Barbara, ao that tha bride might taete thla aupreme honey. But to his dismay no honey appeared on the breekfaet table tha first morning ot their etay. The groom frowned. Ho called the old familiar waiter over to him. "Whero'a my honey T he demanded. "The waiter hesitated, looked awkwardly at tha bride, and then bent toward tha young man's ear and In a hoarse whlapar stammered, 'Why, Maria don't work here any more, sir.' -Harper's Weekly.

And now, to ahow the long-eared sagacity of tha present administration, the same men have been ordered to return and check their own work.

July J4.-To tha Edi tor of The Bra: I was much interested In your report of tha speech of, Hexamer, head of th Oerman-American 'alliance, which ha delivered at tha banquet given In his honor at the Fontenetle .Friday evening. He atarted whh a strong denunciation of the American presa, I presume for the reason they are backing our presi dent In hla efforts to protect the Uvea and property of American cltlaens. How ever, the American press needs no de fense at my hands. He next attacked tha publio sdhool sys tem, of which every true American 1 ao Justly proud. It la a wrone; principle to try to array one class of Americana against another, and whoever attempte It la lni my Judg ment making a great mistake. He lays stress upon tha fact that large numbera of Germans inlistel in the civil war, and 'helped put down the rebellion. I grant you that h true. Probably not one regiment went to the front without It German contingent There were severs! German boys in my eumpany ; they were true blue and bravo, always ready when duty called. Wa muat .give them honor and credit. But let ua not forget we are all eltlzene of a common country, either by birth or adoption, and It was Just as Incumbent upon one as tha other to rally to the de fense of the flag whenever and wher ever it might bo a si! ailed. He further said, .'The time ia ripe for German Americana to stand up and assert their rights." May I ask of what lights thoy have been deprived? They have been honored In the highest places in the halls of congresa, they have helped to make our laws: In the executive branch, aa governors and Judges, they hava helped execute the laws, in fact, they are today holding places of trust and authority In all the state. t Thli kind of talk a this critical time to try to place oue claaa above another, may cause trouble. At any other time U would be simply lu dicrous. ' EDWIN M, BEAJUE. "A ad All for a! Sonar." OMAHA, July .-To th F.ditor of The Bee: Tha splendid team work of 1,000 male voices (Maennerchor) of the cltle making up the Northwestern Saengerfeet, on tbe stage of th Auditorium last week, apeaks for ttaetf of the history of song to this the first part of the twentieth century. Few realise what a struggle tha art of song had tn past ages to build music to Its present position first through melody and then harmony and then symphony. Tha first scale ot record In History la one of three notes, made by the natural Inflectlona of. tha tonea of the voice in musical speech downward like th Greeka sang their eplo poetry. Thus: say hello naturally to the telephone girl and your voloe will fall in tone on the low to tha musical Interval of a fourth. It aha doea not anawer, you say It again, but this time your voice does not fall so far quite, but to the Interval ot a major third and thua wa have the aoale, aay down from middle C to C.'A flat, O. Next we have the scale of Sappho (619 B. C), not a myth or a muse, but a real little woman, with black hair and a aweet voice. ' At th tuna or the Greek philosopher, Pythagoras, (S33 B. C.) all ot tha eeven primary notes were In and a few of tha chromatic notes . also.' This wa the seven-note or diatonio scale In whioh tbe voice struggled for some eighteen cen turies to make aong In melody and all through the dark and middle ages to tha time of the Italian renaissance. Then Instrumental musio came to the rescue of cantata music, by tha madrigals or songs of tha troubadours and menne alngers accompanied by their stringed Instruments. Like them, too, Martin Luther broke away from tha droning, alng-song chant and liturgies of th church, still singing ilka th Greeks In fourths and thus started muslo In tha melodjr of thirds with some anap to It and a tuned Instru ment to check the vole up to, and thua waa modern harmony born. Tha ftve-not scales of tha Asiatic, where th volca went up-to tha fifth in stead of down to tha fourth, has for some reaaon never developed harmony and la very walling to us, like Chines and Japanese music, or th hoot-che koot-ch of tb afreets of Cairo. Tha trouble dur ing all thea renturtea waa tha "terrible'1 tri-tona in tha acala, called in tha middle agea "the devil In music." They did not realise that the octave waa tha natural division of the scale, but they tried to divide In tha middle of the octave, but there waa tha trt-tone of three full notea (from F to- B). To avoid this they made two acala In the octave and the true Greek pentachords start on E to F, O, A, below, and the one above, B, C. D, U Theae ware simple scale of fourth ehd major and minor thirds and no trt-tone, but very tame music. They knew that to pluck half of tha atrlng made tha octave above tba whole string, to pluck three-fourths of tha string and you get the Interval of the fourth, two-thirds makes a fifth, four- fifths a major third, flve-eiaths a minor I third, etc. but they did not know that two consecutive thirds make a fifth and three-third a seventh and by Inversion third become sixths and sevenths become eeoonds because they did not know now to use tha ectav note, nor did they use fifths and to them tha fourths sounded better than tha thirds on which modern music Is founded. It waa tha great choral master of Italy. Palestrina 415:4) who brought on octave or diapason music and bridged around tha devil la muslo at last. It waa Moaart. a Osnuaif (IT) who flrat xaade use ot the baritone voice, that made thla aaengvrfest possible, for It la the voice of the average man. Before his time the Italians made some of tha male voire take the scprano part along with tenors and bassoa Remember the tone of the whole string, aa on It Is founded not only fundamental base, but the keys of muslo which John Bebsstlan Bach GttK) also a German, found out by bis ear alone and afterwards proved by Helmholts (also a German who died in lif4, whoso mother waa English) by tha physics of sound ss mathematically cor rect.
