No Deterioration of the Nation.
Individuals who champion a definite course
of srtlon, and who fall to attract the following
(hey demand, are fond of declaring the Amer
icans as a nation have deteriorated. This alle
gstlon hss especially been used with astonishing
frequency in connection with discussions of in
lernstional relations and Internal policies dur
ing the last few months, and lis constant repeti
tion rosy have the effect of reusing some to
think it has foundation In fact. The contrary
Is true. No visible sign of retrogression, In
moral force or sptritusl purpose, has yet been
shown. Americans are peace-loving, but are
not more fond of their esse than sre other peo
ples they simply have more of It to enjoy.
Our wonderful progress In all the ways of
civilisation and enlightenment has given us ad
vantages and opportunities our forefathers
knew nothing about, even In their roost expan
sive dreams. These comforts snd conveniences
mske ns the envy of the less fortunate of tho
world, but they have not had the effect of de
stroying the fiber of our national life. A cir
cumscribed existence Is not essential to the de
velopment of character, nor does the strength
of a people rest finally on Us poverty. Today
we are reaping the benefit and enjoying the
fruits of those who made our wealth possible,
but we are not the less vigorous because we are
no longer living In primitive fashion.
Some flabby Intellects exist, and gain a hear
ing, but they do not represent the rlrlle Amer
icanism thst still leads the world.
Playground Palaver.
The upheaval in the local Recreation board
is not altogether a surprise to those who have
been watching the progress of this social inno
vation here. While experience has shown the
desirability of competent oversight of the pub
lie play places provided for the children of the
community, and this oversight must necesssrily
have the direction of some properly qualified
superintendent, the very ambitious and compre
hensive nrocram outlined by the recently in
stalled "expert" for the development of the play
system embraces a great deal that provokes dis
sent, and much organised detail threatening to
prove cumbersome in operation and destructive
of the purpose for which the playgrounds are
established. The especially objeotlonable
feature of the program Is that which contem
plates raising a fund to psy local speakers for
giving advice to supervisors, and levying a tax
on children playing ball to be divided among
the umpires. This smacks entirely too much
of a petty side line to be tamely endured. What
Omaha really wants it common sense adminis
tration of the publio playgrounds, so that the
children will have the maximum of freedom with
a minimum of supervision, good behavior and
the personal safety of the youngsters being
always secured.
"Villa and his bandits, alive or dead," con
stitutes the most pressing duty of the govern
ment. Diplomatic hair-splitting over eea travel
rights can be suspended while the nation rights
the wrongs of Americsns on the Rio Orsnde. ,
"Perdlcaris living, or Raesull dead!" was
the wording of the message of Secretary Hay
sent to the government of Morocco 00 a historic
occasion. A message of like import to the rul
ing powers of Mexico would fit American
temper at this moment.
Sweden's Objection Well Timed.
Sweden finds itself In much the same pre
dicament now as was Holland at the opening of
the war. An ensrgetto belligerent has aown
the waters, of the Baltic with a "mine field"
that means the cutting oft ot sea tratfte of all
kinds, an action against which the Swedes not
only protest, but propose to remedy by remov
ing the mines. Holland was forced' to take
similar action In the fall of 114, in order that
Its ports might be kept open. The lofty disre
gard for neutrals displayed at the opening of
the war has increased, rather than diminished,
in spite of the most vigorous representations,
and the present course indicates no purpose of
the warring nations to show greater considera
tion for their. peaceful neighbors. In this in
stance the circumstances are Interesting, be
cause of the fact that the Swedes have shown
an unmistakable bias for the Germans, although
maintaining a neutrality as rigid as the most
punctilious might require. Traffic between the
ports ot Sweden and Germany has continued
with but little interruption, and has been the
occasion ot not a little friction between tne
Swedes and the English. The Immediate effect
of the present protest is not likely to be more
effective than those that have preceded it, but
as the pressure on neutral commerce increases
the probability ot concerted action for protec
tion also grows.

Another Chance for Funston.
The War department having ordered the
pursuit ot Villa and his bandits across the Mex
ican border, It appears certain that the man
who captured Agulnaldo Is to be the one who
will finally expunge Francisco Villa as a factor
in international affairs. General Funston is
the proper person, If he have official sanction
for his act. His career has been such as gives
assurance In advance that the pursuit will only
terminate at 1U goal. The Kansas boy who
fought through the canebrakes of Cuba with
Gomes and Garcia, who swam the river in pur
sutt ot the Filipino lnsurrectos, who tan down
and captured the notorious Agulnaldo, and who
has since done a soldier's duty with a soldier's
devotion, is well qualified for the Job of settling
accounts with the Mexican raiders. He is a
western product, a fine type ot the plains breed,
and will hardly disappoint his countrymen In
the outcome of his latest mission.
The Book of tho Earth
Oarratt T. Serrlss.
HE Ufa hiotory ot our world, as far aa fossil re
mains rareal It to geologist, la contained in a
series of rock strata, formed one above another.
Ilka tha layers of an onion. In these strata aru
burled remains of the Jiving creatures which existed
at tha time whan materials of which each stratum
la enmpoeod were la!d down. In such a series, of
course, tha lowest must have been deposited first.
Thua tha enmt of the earth with Its successive layers
resemble. In soma ways, a book lying with It" front
pas downward, the end of tha story being at tha top.
This geological book must be read backward, start
ing with tha conclusion and going back to the be
ginning, and this method of reading, which would be
fatal to tha Interest Of a detective story, really adds
to tha fascination of the earth romance because Its
plot is reversed, and tha mystery pertains to the
start and not to the finish.
But the great rock book, unfortunately, has not
been wall preserved. Its leaves Instead of lying un
disturbed In their original order have been crumpled,
pierced, torn, mingled together, and disordered to
auch a degrea that In many places rarts of the bot
tom leaf have been thrust up to the top, and some
times huge mas-sea torn out of the book have been
shored back again upside down.
Nowhere can a complete series of even a small
portion of tha leaves be found retaining from top te
bottom their relative positions. The problem that
geologists had to attack when they began to decipher
the marvelloiia history of hundreds of millions of
years contained In this shattered volume resembled
somewhat that which confronts studanta of human
records whan they try to read tha Inscriptions en
broken clay tablets, er to put together fragments of
ancient manuscripts.
But the geologists have ene advantage In that
every page is marked all ever with certain charac
teristic things which enable them to recognise the
fragments, no matter how far they may have been
carried from their original position. It is eomr what
aa if each leaf of a book ware made of a particular
kind of paper, and printed In a type peculiar to It
self. With such close It would not be difficult te re
construct a tom-up book. If there were so essential
portions altogether missing. But In the geological
books tha characters do run ever, more or lass, from
page to page, so that uncertainty often exists as to
exactly where a fragment should be placed.
Now, keeping these difficulties tn mind, let us see
what the interpreters of nature's great rock bible
have been able to read. They find, first, that at the
bottom of the book, that la, at Its beginning, there
la a mass of chaotic material, which seams to have
been ground up, dissolved, squeezed out, redeposlted
and repressed, so that whatever characters may once
have been Impressed upon It have been destroyed.
This first leaf. Indecipherable as far as the story of
life on the globe Is concerned. Is called the Asolo
(lifeless) age. The upper part of It, where some
faint Indications of primitive life sre to be dis
cerned, is the Eosolo (Ufa dawn) age. A vast frag
ment of this chaotlo leaf ilea on the earth's present
surface In Canada, a big silver of It extending Into
the Adirondack mountains In northern Naw York.
Next comes the thick leaf called the Paleosoto
(ancient Ufa age). This Is divided, from bottom up
ward. Into four subleavea, named respectively the
Cambrian, the Silurian, the Devonian and the Carbon
iferous, in the Cambrian there are few forms of
life, and they seem to have been all marina, such as
seaweeds and very simple animals, such as mollusks.
In the Silurian "marine life, large oceans, small
landa, uniform climate," continued te be the charao
tertatlo features. Tha typical animals were Inverte
brates, that la creatures not constructed on the back
bone principle.
The Devonian witnessed a decided advance. Land
plants now began to oevelop, and perhaps the first
forests were then formed. The great characteristic
of the Devonian, was, however, the development of
back-boned animals In the form ef fishes. These no
doubt began la the late Silurian, but they became so
abundant In the Devonian that It has been called "the
age of fishes." The Carboniferous, which followed.
was the era ef the "eoal plants," from which the
principal coal beds ef the earth were develops!
Animal life was abundant In the Carboniferous,, and
then, for the first time, insects appeared in consid
erable numbers. The Carboniferous Insects were
astonishing giants. One, a specie ef phasma, had
a body a foot long and wings more than two feet In
The next great leaf above the Paleozoic Is the
Ifesosolo (middle life) age. This Is divided from bot
tom upward Into three parte, the Triaeslo, Juraaste
and Cretaceous, The Trlaaalc and Juraaslo are
characterised by the beginning of the mammals, or
animals which nourish their young with their milk.
But at that time they were insignificant little crea
tures. The great beasts called dinosaurs began In
the Trlaaalc but attained their senltn In the Jurassic,
which la often called "the age of great reptiles."
These creatures, however, continued en. In Changing
forma, through the nest, the Cretaceous, or chalk ere.
The enormous beds of chalk la many parte ef the
world date from this time, having been formed from
the remains of countless billions of mlnute-eheUed
creatures Inhabiting the sea. Birds made their first
appearance, by development from reptiles, tn the
Jurassic, and continued to develop through the Cre

also called the Age of Mammals, because thsy now
became predominant. The Cenoaole haa two principal
divisions, tho Tertiary 1 below, and the Quaternary
above, which brings us to the world ef our time. The
Tertiary, In turn, haa three subdivisions, the Eocene,
Miocene and Pliocene. Gradually through these Ter
tiary eras were developed the anoeatral forma of
many characteristlo animals of our day, such as mon

tor of The Bee: I notice that perennial

ranged to put Nebraska to the expense
of printing his name on the primary bal-
lota aa a candidate for president. It
seems thst some plan might be devised
to protect ourselves from freak candi
dates, which not only tend to bring eur
election system Into ridicule, but cause
considerable expense. Xf nothing bettor
Is suggested, why not try this: Amend
tha law allowing tha secretary of state,
at his discretion, to require a bond from
any candidate, say for llO.nm, conditioned
upon hla receiving t J or 3 per cent of
the votes st the primary or election at
which he Is a candidate. It ought not
to be a serious tax on the brain of the
secretary to tell a freak candidate, and
It la extremely unlikely that any man,
would ever be elected to that office who
would abuse such authority. I hope
somebody can suggest a better plan, but
am trying this for a starter.

A Ward for the Jastlee Ceart,
OMAHA. March W.-To the Editor of
The Bee: There has been lately so much
criticism of justice court procedure and
practice and so much commendation of
the new municipal court that a few ques
tioita may be appropriate.
Ftret-Doee the municipal court Intend
to set aside the laws of the atate of
Nebraska for the collection of debt?
Aeoond Will higher costs and longer
delay In the determination of cases be
ot any advantage te poor debtors?
Third Ca a the new court be any more
lenient with poor debtora than the laws
Cf the slate provide?
Fourth What advantage will be de
rived by litigants in changing the place,
but not the mods of trials?
Fifth If justice courts are so vile and
are being operated contrary to law, why
does not some one take the proper legal
stepe to correct these evils?
I have had some experience In this
matter. A few years ago one party
started out right. The record ef the case
la in the district court and it might be
well to note that the people who tried
to beamirch my record not only had the
costs taxed against them without the In
troduction of any testimony on my pert,
and Incidents thr It may be mentioned
that the eoatiThave not yet been paid;
the highly Indignant attorney who was
going to do so much proving to bo ss
much of a shirker ef debts as were Ms
The laws of Nebraska are too severe
In some respects snd too lenient In eth
ers, but they are to be enforced without
fear or favor: they are enforced In the
districts courts In the same manner ss
in the justice courts or In the supreme
court, and the latter alone should de
termine the question of the constitution
ality ef laws.
Here la a challenge epen to all: I will
pay the costs of any appeal or error
proceedings from any fin! order or judg
ment In any case on my docket which
may be reversed on any point of law by
the supreme court of the state of Ne
braska. If the people who sre so strongly
critical mean business here is their op
portunity. It some of them de-otc their
time and I'll devote the cash.
I was the first and only party so far
to ask the legislature to amend the laws
for the collection of debt against poor
debtors. I drafted a bill which was in
troduced In the legislature at Its last
session which would hsve reduced costs
In Justice courts at least 50 per cent all
round, and more than that in cases
where garnishee proceedings are now In
voked. That bill was killed by the Doug
las county delegation In the lsst legisla
ture and these costs are still outrag
eously high.
Incidentally, these gentlemen who re
fused to reduce Justice costs doubled the
mileage feee of constables In cases, so
that when a poor debtor Uvea ten mllea
from the court house he must pay tl
mileage fees where he was required to
pay tl before the law was amended.
Where the debtor lives wlUin a mile of
the court room he Is compelled to pay
SO cents more In each case which goes
to garnishment proceedings, where my
bill would have reduced his costs In such
case at least M.SS.
