Helping the Fanner in Hit Work.
Many Influences are quietly at work along '
eclentlfically established linos for the Improve-
!ient of methods of production, and In no field
of industry Is tbls more manifest than In aarl- j
(iiltiire. Within a decade farming hag been j
levolutlonlned, with the result that the output
l:as reached stupendous totals. Nowhere have
these Improvements found more ready favor or
been more promptly adopted than In Nebraska.
The end Is not yet, for at a conference at Lin
coln the general subject was discussed specifi
cally with a view to providing farm demonstra
tor's In those counties that are unable, by reason
cf shortage of funds, to secure the service of
these eiperts. The funds are provided Jointly
by the federal government, the state and local
community served. The Lincoln meeting de
veloped that bankers and other business men
not directly engaged in agriculture are willing
to enter into arrangements for paying tbe cost,
l!i order that better ways of getting things out
cf the ground may be established. It will be
money well Invested, for Nebraska's great
wealth comes from the farm, and whatever helps
the farmer helps everybody.

Behind the Battle Lines.
Dispatches from Europe bring newt of tre
mendous clashes between the armies, with vague
nuggestlons of tremendous losses, but the stu
pendous spectacle obscures some of the moves
that are being made behind the battle line.
Strategically, It Is possible, and even probable,
that the present desperate drive of the Allies
may be but the screen for a move on the other
side of the arena. Taken with the stubborn re
Hlutance and attack of the Russians along their'
front, the activity in the west may well be
looked on aa intended to divert the German plan
of sending relief to the Turk, whose ability to
rtalst the attack at the Dardanelles must be
measured by his supply of munitions. Under
neath it all may be descried the desire of the
Allies to place themselves on better military
terms with relation to the central powers before
serious talk of peace can be had.
Cooling- Off at Lincoln.
The eruption that racked the Nebraska state
house in all Its well-braced Joints aeems to have
subsided. Klre Commissioner Rldgell Is ap
proaching the official pay counter by degrees.
He has deposited his pay warrants In a local
bank, without endorsement; this will permit
him to check against the amount, leav'ng the
bank to stand aa the buffer between the commis
sioner and the state treasurer, hut In all good
season the warrants will be properly endorsed
and cashed. Rldgell still mutters of the suit he
threatened to bring, but that, too, will pass. Pay
for Food Commissioner Harman and his corps
of inspectors Is yet under tbe embargo laid
against it by the legislature. The supreme court
is In session, but no more is heard of the gov
ernor's announced intention to sue for tbe ouster
of tbe state treasurer as soon aa he could get
enough of the Judges together. Nor is any step
being taken to Inquire into the misuse of the
state funds, of which the governor admitted
knowledge, such aa farming money to favored
hunks, tbe rake-off on the bond fee, and the like.
Are the democrats going to get together
again and cover up all the misdeeds they have
all aged against one another?
Receivership for the "Katy."
' The) receivership for the Missouri, Kansas &
Texas, the fourth of the so-called Gould south
western system lines to he taken over by the
federal courts In bankruptcy proceedings, em
phasises tbe short-sightedness of. the peculiar
method of railroad financing criticised by Chair
man lllnes of tbe Santa Ke, and referred to in
The Bee lately. All tbe roada here Involved
served prosperous and growing regions. In which
the volume of traffic waa steadily Increasing.
Reports to the Interstate Commerce commission
show that the earnings of these lines grew from
year to year, but the burden of Interest charges,
coming from tbe funded debt, grew faster than
the Income. I'nder this condition bankruptcy
was Inevitable. Reorganisation may cure the
troubles of these lines, but the entire situation
li not to be relieved by the salvation of Individ
ual systems. The warning aounded by Mr.
Hlnes must be heeded by the magnates before

Tbe declaration that parcel post is here to
stay Is eminently correct, and the only strange
thing about It is that those who fought against
ita adoption do not realise the fact, and adjust
themselves to the situation without trying to
undo something now beyond recall.
The oue-cent letter postage proposition is
entirely separate and distinct from that of tbe i
purcel poat. Oue-cent letter postage will doubt
less come In Mine Just aa did two-cent letter
postage, which waa as radical a departure from
the preceding three-cent rate. Whether reduc
tion of letter postage works reduction or total
postal revenues depends entirely upon its effect
upon the volume of business. For example. It
ii doubtful whether continuance of the three
rent rate would have shown any better budget
balance than has the two-cent rate.
What will probably postpone letter postage
reduction, however, is not parcel poBt, but the
European, war tempting' other countries to use
the postofflce as part of their taxing machinery,
Canada, for example, having already added a
oue-cent war atamp tax, thus practically restor
ing tbe tbree-cent rate.
The Diminishing Family
"J. Meltee- Cattail In The Xadependeat,--
Professor of rsycbolog-y in Col amble university.
TUB ADJUSTMENT of population to means of sub
sistence appeals at flrat alsht to he so exact that
there Is likely to be en assumption of a controlling
mechanism such as exists In a state of nature. The
fact of the matter Is, however, that the food supply
and the other neceasitlea of life are not fixed quanti
ties, hut Imlease In proportion to the number of men
w ho both use snd produce them, in an era of the ap
plications of science, there are i.o diminishing returns
with Increasing population, but rather incresslng re
turns, owing to the production of larger numbers of
men who make discoveries and Improvements for the
benefit of all. The averuge well-being has been about
the same In France with a stationary population, as nv
Germany with a rapidly Increaalng population; but
Germany through Ita greater ahare In the advance
ment of science and Its applications has contributed
more to the world than has Fiance. The first effect
of a lowered Mrlh rate is to Increase wealth though
It la generally consumed In luxuries by ssvlng the
coat of the rearing of children, but later when the
productive workers are lacking there Is an economic
loes. France, as compared with Germany, saved each
year over a billion dollara by having fewer children
to support: but the gain In wealth was temporary. In
fact It ended In 1(W. whereas the Increase of wealth
In Germany In the course of the last generation was
It Is a fundamental question whether the relation
between the birth rata and the death rate will be main
tained under existing conditions so aa to' give an in
creasing, or, at all events, a stationary population.
Will both continue to decrease or remain approxi
mately as at present, or will the balance of the nine
teenth century he loat ns has sppsrently hsppened
The vital atatlsth s of the I'nlted Plates are entirely
Inadequate. Were registrations of deaths and births
exist, they aro Imperfect, snd the changing population.
Ita age composition and the amount of immigration
render them difficult to Interpret. But some Infor
mation concerning Mrtli rates is given by the p',i
portlon of ehlldren as determined by the census. If
the percentage of children under IS years of sge In
the population should continue to decrease as it did
from 1S80 to 1W0, there would be no children 200 years
heno;. From a special atudy by Mr. Kucsynskl it
appears that the birth rate of the native population
of Massachusetts was sixty-three per thousand women
of child-bearing age, as compared with eighty-five In
Frsnoe, 104 In England and 14.1 In Russia. As '-he
French population Is stationary, the native Ne r
England population, even apart from any further de
cline in the birth rate, decreases to three-fourths It
one generation. Special atatlstlca have been gathered
for college graduates. Treaident F.llot In his report for
11101-02 atated that U married Harvard graduates ot
the classes from '73 to 77 hsd sn average family of
two surviving 'children. Other data concerning the
families of college graduates have been published by
Prof. Thorndlke. President Hall snd others. The
Harvard graduate has on the average three-fourths ot
a son, the Vassar graduate one-half of a daughter.
What, then, are the causes lesdlng to the recent
decline of the birth rate, and are they likely to altor
so that the rate may again Increase, to maintain the
existing atate of affairs, or to produce a further de
crease? There is a biological adaptation which limits
the average fertility of women to about twelve chil
dren, and social conditions have led to one-half of the
women of child-bearing age being unmarried. The
further decrease of the average family to three or
four in the case of American scientific men or college
gradtiatea to two must be due to infertility or to
voluntary limitation. Both causes hsve been recog
nised since the time of the writing ot the book of Gen
esis; both have doubtless Increased in force In tae
course of the nineteenth century. It Is generally be
llebed that the principal cauae of the small slxe ot
the modern family is voluntary limitation. A dell
nlte answer Is supplied by Information given to rr
by 4A1 leading scientific men.
Ot theae families 176 were not voluntarily Unittel,
while :tf were ao limited, the cauae of the voluntary
limitation being health In 133 cases, expense In ninety
eight cases and various other reasons In fifty-four
cases. Chlldlessnesa was Involuntary In two-thirds of
the cases. In the standardised family of two children
the condition was desired In six cases out, of aevea.
In over one-third of the 4tl families the limits tlon was
Involuntary, due to Infertility and other pathological
causes, but If these hsd not obtained, voluntary limita
tion would have occurred later In nearly all, perhaps
In all cases.
Neither the prevalence ot the voluntary limitation
of the slxe of family, nor the fact that the slxe et
family la limited directly or Indirectly through In
fertility or Ill-health In more than three-fourths of the
rases, can be regarded with aatlsfactlon. It la Indeed
evidunt that a limitation of the number of offspring
was an essential condition of the evolution ot a higher
race and of the civilisation to which It has attained
There was first a biological adaptation limiting t le
fertility of women to an average of about twelve chi;.
dren, then a development of social Institutions reducing
the average number of children for each woman tj
about six, and now we have a psychological restric
tion limiting the number to about three. This number
appears to be nearly Ideal, In so far as the most desir
able rate of Increase ot population ts concerned. It
might be as undesirable and be made as illegal tor s
man to have six children aa to have two wives. But
we are playing with edged tools when we substitute
rationalism for fundamental instincts. In practice the
family la not voluntarily limited for the welfare of
the race, but to avoid risk and ill-health real 'or
fancied expenae and Inconvenience, and to 'give the
Individual child greater advantages. There seem to be
no existing conditions which will check the decreasing
birth rate, white there are powerful forces ternhnj
to lis decllue below the danger point of the death rate.
If the struggle for existence and natural aelectlon
are largely eliminated by enabling moat of those who
are born to attain middle age, then the vigor anJ
fertility of the race can only be maintained by a
eugenle selection of healthy parents. It social condi
tions become such that children are no longer of
economic value to their parents, while they have for
the atate a greater economle value than ever before,
than the state ahould be prepared to pay the cost ef
bearing and rearing them. When laws are pasaed fo -hi.
hltng ths marriage of the feeble-minded, of the ('

evident that we regard aoclal control of marriage a
feasible. If we supply free achoola on the ground ths I
this la of advantage to the Individual and to the state,
there is no reason why we should not give free medical
attendance and much elee. When we learn that the
prlvllegea of property are subordinate to the welfare
of children, there will be no difficulty In provld'rifc

To the Editor of The Bee; I have heard
Sunday twice. The first time was on the
evening of the opening In Omsha. The
second time was on the next Tuesday
night. I waa surprised to hear him re
pent some of hi trite saylnga on Tuea
day which he had Just uaed on the Run
day night before. I waa tired before he
was half through and wished I had not
gone. He said nothing that night.
Since that I have read his talks to some
extent, not all of them nor half of them.
I cannot see anything exceptional In
them, and do not believe Sunday is a
great preacher. I do believe he haa a
system which cannot be surpassed. He
pictures sin, snd call Tom, Dick and
Harry hypocrite. Telia them they are
going to hell unless they support the
church snd pay the expenses of the meet
ing. Then he selects the head men of
the atate, county and city and says that
his remarks are not Intended for them.
They are O'. K. He thus gets men to
use their Influence for him, Sunday, not
for God. The unmentloned are the com
mon heard that go to make up the crowds
and pay the money In dimes, quarters
and dollars. Where the one speclslly
mentioned pays $100 he does not feel it
as much as one of the common herd who
Did Christ pick out the super man and
set him aside and lambast the common
fellow? It won't work, and I have ven
tured the prognostic that Sunday haa
reaches the senlth of his crowd gather
ing, i think nothing more ot his ability
than the ability to gather a orowd. The
li-iuor question Is being fought out by
men and Women who have never seen
Sundsy and have never resd his talks,
but who have given the subject a lot of
time and thought. Tbe temperance wave
Is going on and Is going to take the
nation, but no one can fairly say It was
Sunday's preaching that accomplished the
work. Every business and enterprise
worth while requires good, common sense
and reason. The staying qualities ef
Christianity are wrought Into the soul of
man through good common sense and
reason, snd not through a senseless triads
of names, adjectives and boastings, sense
less bleating and common antics com
mon any place except on the platform.
I hope there will be some good come
from the meetings in Omaha. I believe
that tho expenditure of an equal sum of
money in securing and maintaining a per
manent Institution would be Infnltely bet
ter. I see nothing lasting aa the result
of the kind of talk, etc, heard and wit
nesaed In the Tabernacle. If there la
anything of real good and Indurance to
come from this, I will say that I believe
our present civilisation has reached a
atate where It can digest to its good, that
which it seems would sour the stomach of
a buxxard. L. O. PFEIFFER.
A Reply to Tharatoa.
SOUTH SIDE, Sept. 28. To the Editor
of The Bee: In the letter of John M.
Thurston In The Bee, I find he states
that Christ did not threaten mankind
with hell. If he will take his Bible and
read the book ot Matthew throug and
not read any other port of the Bible, he
will find that Christ used no me very
vigorous language in denouncing the
wicked of His day and repeatedly warned
his auditors of the dangers of hell and of
hell fire. lie showed some of the "Bill"
Sunday kind of religion when he kicked
the gamblers out of the temple of the
Lord, which they had profaned.
In denouncing the Pharisee he said.
"O generation of vipers how can ye, be
ing evil, speak good things." He repeat
edly called the scribee and Pharisees
hypocrites and as a wicked and adulter
mm generation. Ho also said to those
about him that unlets their righteous,
nesa exceeded that of the scribes and
Pharisees that they would in no wise en
ter the kingdom of God. If they would
not enter the kingdom of God, I would
like to auk Senator Thurston where they
will go to
If we believe a part of the Bible we will
have to believe all of it For if we be
lieve there is a heaven we will have to
believe there Is a hell, for the Bible tells
of one aa much aa of the other. Christ
alw said. "Not all who say Lord, Lord,
shall enter the kingdom of heaven."
Where will they go to If they do not
enter heaven? He also said It a part
of the body offend you cast tt away so
a to avoid danger ot hell fire. Look tt
up, senator, and see It I am right.
Why is it that people have quit going
to church? They do not go like they did
fifty yeara ago when all the churches
preached hell fire and brimstone and they
were crowded to the doors every Sunday.
When the preachers of Omaha taught aa
Senator Thurtson wants them to, the
church attendance dwindled, but when
"lull" Sunday comes and preaches tho
old time religion, people come out by the
tena of thnueands to hear htm and the
good he will do and has already done
will lait long after Senator Thurston ia
dead and forgotten. F. A. AGNEW.

Inhaling strength with every breath
Soft biown across the mountain way,
I stroll whore autumn's crimson death
And summer's resurrection say
The annual rime of death and life.
Smooth winds the road o'er covert glade.
On upward slope by varying strife.
For mastery, of light and shade.
Here greenery hath conquered all,
And dominates a world of love:
Yon distant hill is mighty thrall
Of mastered bluenesa throned above.
Here find I quiet rest I seek
Far from 'he turbulance of men.
And mildly Importune the meek
Fawn-voices of the woodland glen.
Where think not that the woods are stilli
For whomso'er can overhear,
Eech runlet speaketh, and each hill
A music hid from carnal ear.
The dumb rocks hint their history;
and myriad winged thlnga float past,
Wlih messages of mystery
Sent from the dim lea-8hadowed vast.
All tender moss that steadfast clings
To warm the oak-root, mantlewlee,
Rome answer has for questionings.
Repose for restless subtleties.
If 1 would stanch an anguish sore
That contumely's thrust hath made.
Or intq wounds mild healing pour.
Away from battlefields of trade.
I walk amid these leafy balms
Wood distillations magic breeds
Upborne upon the upheld palm
Of elfin greenwood Ganymede.
And learn how thought Is kin to prayer.
That grace, as Juices from earth's sod
Flows through the veins of spirit, where
Man'a aoul doth feel the touch of God.
