Germany Makes Amends.
Germany has apparently ended a serious dip
lomatic situation by complete and unreserved ac
quiescence In the demands of the American gov
ernment, so fsr as the Arabic rase Is concerned.
The Imperial German government acknowledges
that the captain of the submarine disregarded
his orders, and disavows his action, promising
to pay Indemnity for the American lives and
rioperty lost through the captain's misconduct.
This will set st rest the matter of the Arabic,
though bringing us back to the Lusltanla case.
In giving the orders, recently quoted, to Us
submarine commanders that they must make
sure of the enemy status of vessels before at
tacking, to observe further the regulation of
visit and search, Rtid Insure the safety of pas
S"ngerB and crews of vessels sunk, the German
submarine warfare Is brought fairly within the
srope of humane warfare, If there Is such
thing. With then points conceded, it may not
be so difficult for tbe German government to
rtcede from Its position on the Lusltanla attack,
and so remove the remaining Incitement to fric
tion In the relations between the two countries.
The School Board is Eight.
The majority members of the Omaha School
board deserve commendation and support for
firmly adhering to the position that tbe consti
tution of Nebraska bars religious instruction in
the schools, no matter in what disguise it may
This Is not a question whether the "Billy"
Sunday preaching Is doing good or harm, nor
whether Is Is denominational or multl-denomlna-tlonat,
nor whether It pleases one Class of par
ents and offends another clasg of parents, and
it Is not a question as to what has been done, or
tray be done In other cities at least, not wholly
any one of these things but of the plain and
palpable fart that to keep the public schools
from being unod to propagate any religions de
nomination or any system of religious teaching,
tbe constitution closes the door altogether.
Knowing how strong the prensure has been upon
the School board members in this matter from
xealous, though we believe mistaken, evangelical
association enthusiasts, their flnsl determination
to adhere strictly to the letter and spirit of the
hw shows devotion to a real conviction which
cannot be compromised and must strengthen
the board as a while In the public esteem.
Fire PreTention Day.
Governor Morehead has added another to his
already announced day for the special preaching
of the gospel of fire prevention, and thus Ne
braskans are officially called upon to celebrate
this survival of common sense on two separate
occasions. Every day should be devoted to the
purpose of preventing possible loss by fire. Fire
prevention consists In keeping premises clear of
accumulations of rubbish in which a conflagra
tion might generate; of taking care of all recep
tacles for fire or ashes, and the exercise of gen
eral watchfulness that means safety. Just now,
when fires for warming homes and buildings are
being rekindled. It contemplates examination of
flues and chimneys, to see that they are In safe
condition. There Is nothing complicated In the
plan of fire prevention. It is Just as easy to be
careful as It is to be careless, the only require
ment in most rases being mertdy change la
habits. Nebraskan's should observe fire preven
tion day continually, for by so doing they will
save much unnecessary loss to the state.
The Old-Faihioned Doctor.
An old-fashioned doctor has Just been laid at
pest in Omaha, his casket followed to the grave
by the sorrowing hearts of a multitude of people,
eld and young, to whose physical and mental ail
ments he had ministered during a long and use
ful llfe4 It is no disparagement to the new man
of science, who prescribes for or operates upon
buffering humanity, to say he will never build
lor himself temples In the hearts of grateful
patients such as were occupied by his forebears
under tbe sign of Aesculapius. Tbe Hlppocratio
oath is still as sonorous of sound and as binding
In sentiment aa ever, but the intimacy between
doctor and patient is no longer possible under
The old-fashioned doctor was more than
friend and more than confessor: he was the rod
and tbe staff to support and comfort the afflicted
in their bodily torments and weaknesses. His
word was law, as his sympathy was sure, and
hit devotion was equalled only by that of the
mother In Its self-effacement. No night too dark
00 stormy, no road too long or broken, for him
to travel abroad, responding to the faintest call
for aid as to the trumpet, sounding forth his
duty, lie prospered indifferently, for he seldom
kept books; he was not ft business man, but an
evangel of the healing science, bis mission to
mitigate human woe, to soften human life, and
to lengthen man's days la the land. His patience
vas inexhaustible, his courage dauntless, his
faith In humanity unshakable, and his work the
most, blessed ever done by man.
The new doctor has the skill, the learning,
the courage and the patience of his predecessor,
tut his very science sets him apart, and be he
Lever so devoted to his profession, honorable
above all the rest, he may never hope to win
the place held by the old-fashioned doctor In
the heart of the people. ' ;

The beat thing about Mr. Riley's poetry Is that It
ts all true more or less; aqd so there must have been
a real Raggedy Man. But Mr. Riley says the real
Raggedy Man was not one man at all. but the whola
flock of men-of-all-work who were engaged about the
Riley home from time to time. Once In dreaming
about hla boyhood and thoee who madn It ao happjr,
Mr. Riley got to thinking of theea hired men, and
how he uted to love to watch them and hear their
yarns; and then be reallied that theaa simple fe'
Iowa had much In common, all the way from great
seeming lmpcrtanoe to genuine love of, children. Ano
so he fuaed them all into one character, the kindly
hired man of ft country town, to whom tne little boy
speaka his eulogy.
Piich was the real Raggedy Man. Hla forbears, so
to say, who worked at tha Riley home, theae "hired
handa," were "lat se good," they "split the klndltn'
and chopped the wood." spaded the gardan. mowel

girl, even milked tha cow for, her In token ef affee

neceaaary 'to say that he wore no "fine clothes,"
but patched and ragged garments, and was a tri
rsgsady man. The children liked him, first of ail,
becauae he waa different from ether people, and then
for the very patches on his clothe, which made them
feel sorry for htm. "Yet he was not so ragged,"
eya Mr. Riley, "aa many people think nowadays
He was not a tramp, but a young fellow from ft neigh
