Appealing; to Sectional Prejudice.
The persistent efforts of the democratic
World-Herald to arouse sectional prejudice
against Omaba ought not to go unnoticed. In
Its desperation to bolster up the weaknes of
Its owner's senatorial candidacy, It Is con
tinually urging the voters of the state to come
ever to its side and vote against republicans
because tbey happen to be residents of the
metropolis. Should a man bo punished be
cause he has established his home and built up
his success In Omaha? Have the people living
In Douglas county forfeited their rights as citi
zens because they happen to he more numerous
than tho&e of other several political subdi
visions of the state. The nominations on the
republican ticket were made by voters of tbe
state ag a whole, well aware of what they were
doing. It 1 hardly likely that the democrats
rejected any of the proffered candidates In
making their selections because of the location
of the aspirant's home, or that any was choseii
solely because he happened to be a resident of
a particular locality. However this may be,
what Is to be said of a newspaper, sustained by
the support of local business men and pretend
ing such devotion to the Interest of Omaha as
does the World-Herald, that 'plead with It
reader not to vote for candidate because their
homes ?.ro in Omaha?

One Sign that it Plain.
The reunion of the republican of Califor
nia baB In it nothing of encouragement for the
democrats. Jn no state In the union was the
division between the different republican ele
ment sharper than In the tiolden State. The
logic of events, however, ha served to bring
tho disputant there as elsewhere to a better
understanding, and It has been discovered that
the cause which led to the break were neither
fundamental nor Immovable. The patriotic de
sire of tbe republicans of California, In com
mon with those of the country, Is greater than
devotion to Issue that can better be adjusted
within republican councils, and that can not
be successfully fostered without. Even the
most ardent of the progressive realizes now
that no chance exists for his plan with the
bourbons of democracy In control of the coun
try. The republican party still I the one hope
of those who look for advance In the affair of
the United State, California's example I In
spiring to all good republican.
"Swat the Fly."
Again the health commissioner sound hi
warning to housewives and other, that the
campaign against the fly I on. It is not so
much against tbe fly himself, a wht he tand
for. Flies mean dirt, and dirt mean disease.
Health and bapinsss require that cleanliness
be the rule. To keep clean means to be care
ful. No sort of precaution Is proof against
carelessness. Screens are efficient only when
properly applied and maintained; the dally de
struction of refuse in which flies and similar
vermin breed, and wherein disease germs flour
ish; the general watchfulness over all occupied
premises, to see that cleanliness prevail
these are separate steps in tbe campaign for
safety In summer time. Not only Is it needed
to wat tho fly, but to swat him In advance of
his existence by removing and preventing condi
tion under which It Is possible for him to be
born at all. Health and comfort ere worth the

Defects of Weather Science
Oarrett T. Berrtee.
TIIK moat Imperfect science la meteorology, the ali
enee of tho weather. The teat of a '-lcnc! la H
ability to predict, phenomena that obey the law
It la supposed to have discovered. In this respe.t
meteorology fells fur short. The marKln of error H
It caleulatlona la sometime normoue sufficient to
completely reverse a prediction. The weather bureau
la a useful Institution, bawd unon an Incomplete sys
tem of correlated facta of observation, which are
scientific, ea far aa they go.. Hut there are element
concerned In the production of weather about wlfeh
the method of meteorology give no Information, and
which are not taken Into a'-count by any of Its the
ories. There are birds, Insects and four-footed ani
mal a whleh have an Incomperably greater foreknowl
edge of weather changes than the entire scientific
corpa of the Agricultural department poasesses.
When the predlcter of the weather bureau glee
warning of an approaching storm tbey act on -ve.y
much the same principle as that on which a railroad
time table I based. A train havlna besn announced
by telegraph aa alerted on a given line, will arrive, In
regular euceesslon, at certain point along that line,
and a station agent at any given point can. If no acci.
dent Intervenes, foretell the moment of the train'
arrival at his station.
Xtorm centers, or cyclone, moving across the coun
try are. In iuim ways, comparable to trains following
a time schedule. But, unfortunately, they do not run
on rsils, they are not dilven hy sn Invariable force,
they are subject to Interruptions end obstacles of
many kinds, and Instead of always keeping the lis' K
and following the course, they frequently wander
vaguely about or take an unexpected turn or else fade
away like exhausted whirl In water.
In fart, the weather bureau predlcter ere In the
same quandary In which train dispatchers would find
themaelvea If railroad track were ahlftlng lines, con
tinually drifting this Way and that, getting creased
and entangled or sinking Into suddenly formed quag
mire and thu disappearing for good I
Meteorology, aa a eelenee or weather prediction,
fail Juet becau It possesses too few facia. With the
aid of the telegraph the weather bureau can, If lucky,
follow the trail of a storm center across the 1'nlted
tUates, but tt cannot tell Just how a new storm U
born, nor Just when or where It will liegln Its course,
The one only great fact on which It buses It whol
system of prediction la the general tendency of cy
clonic dlaturbenee In thla country to travel eustwerd,
with a northerly trend, while aloims originating
around the Uulf of Mexico and the Carrlbean Hex
usually come up the coaat.
But the official weather prognostlcstora are aa
much in the dark aa the ordinary citizen concerning
what ta going to happen In the atmosphere next wee,
and they really know nothing aoout any storm until
after It ha begun It career, and then all that they
know I (from general principles) the course that It
will teke In case It doesn't happen to change It
The conduct of the weather during tbe last three
month ha been eufflolently aurprlslng lo show bow
Immensely desirable It i that we should bave some
mean of forecaatlng the varying character of the sea
sons. What recognisable cause have been at work to
make the present spring so different from the corre
sponding are son In 19167 A alight variation In the In
tensity, or quality, of the radiation received from the
sun might account for these things, and recent In
vestigation show that "ch vs rial Ions occur, but
what la needed I more accurate knowledge about
them and their effect.
The preaent la a period of maximum aun-apotted-neas,
and generally when spots are numerous ami
large on the sun the air temperature on the earth
are lower, nd. In some region, storms are morn fre
quent and violent. But all this I knowledge of so
vague and general a nature that It throw but a glim
mer of uncertain light upon the subject of weather
Meteorology telle u about temperatuies and hsr.
ometria pressures, about degrees of humidity and of
aridity, but It mlsse something else, which I evi
dently of essential Importance. Heat and light are
only two of an Infinite number of forms of vibration
sent to us from the sun. Kverybody know that wb"n
the weather record (how thet two day are precisely
alike In temperature, In humidity, etc, human nerve
prove that they are vastly unlike In some unnamed
peculiarity which affects the spring of life.
Tbe spider, bually and confidently spinning her
webs In preparation for a spell of fine weather which
some unerring mechanlam of foreknowledge within her
enable her to detect, I a surer guide than a bs"
ometer. Hhe responds to vibrations aa yet only
guessed at by science, and so, perhaps, do tbe aupor
sensitive nerve of many human creature.

.VEWBKRO, Ore. May 3,-To the Kdl
t'.r of The Bee- The Nebraska chapter,
Iaushters of the American Revolution,
have rendered a notable sorvl:e to the
tublic geneia'ly and to Nebraska In
particular, In the luLII -a'-lon of their
U dutiful book, "Nebraska Rcmlnli
encen." It In jmcked with human "liter
est" stories that grip the heart. .Vs hie.
t.,rleel material the book Is of incalcu
hlt value. That there could te lound w
huge e minilwr of persons to eontrlbuM
iw olIcctlooH of their early expeile.mes in
Nebraska, that they should have pos
sessed tho ability to write In a minner
so graphic, so condensed and fffe"tlve, '
surprising. Ich of those contribution
Is a gem. In reading the booli 1 saw
many name of persens I know.
it was alo sururlslng to find that so
many of the arly settlers in Nebraska
Hied in dug-outs at the atari. O'.r family
lived In one a few months during our
first summer In the territory and after
wiid converted it Into a sUblo for four
horar snd four cows und tbete they wcr
buried for three days and night many
fe t deep 1 y a nnwtorm. The ' til ,ry of
Kontenelle" brought back reeollectlon of
early days. My father was on of the
Qulucy company Who platled thtc town.
The church bell referred to In that
story was senl out aa a present by a
origregiitionallst church In ujuincy and
Iso a silver communion service It was
hauled out from Omiiha by Thomas Olb.
son, who rigged It up on his wsgon In
uch a way that aa he approached the
village of Fontenello he rang It. He, w.t'i
Afr, Myers, founded the Rocky Mountain
News the first paper printed in Denver
In Wih He waa a man of wonderful en
ergy, Aa secretary of th Omaha Board
of Trade he secured the sale by the city
of Omaha to that organization of the lot
on which th Hoard of Trade building
was erected In th so. Th lot had pre
vlouly been used by th fir depart
ment. In th conr of a reient speech "Uncle
Joe Cannon" said: "In the western end
of this capitol I a picture entitled,
'Westward the Wlar of Empire Take If
Way,' A great artist painted that pic
ture. It represents the pioneer on hi
way westward. There are the ateer an I
tho mule bitched up together; there I the
woman with tbe babe in her arms sitting
In ihe wagon; there 1 th little grave by
the roadside; there la th pioneer with
his coonskln cap and the tittle boy, tho
him or the grandson, carrying a rifle,
followed by the faithful dog; another
standa upon th mountain and looka to
the westward. I waa part of that pic
ture In a way by that I mean that I ex
perienced most that It represented In th
pioneer day and I looked upon the pic
ture for tbe first time, thoifgh I am not
mu'h given to tear, I caught myself
crying and during all the years Mora 1
have ie er glen ed towaid ft wi.bout ear
ing to myeelf; 'Uod ble the man who
painted that plctur.' "
And ro will say thousand of those win
were "a part of the picture'' painted In
this book: "Ood bles the noble women
of the Newberg chapter of the Daugli
tir of th American Revolution."
