Some of the country papers are inclined to Jarge part of the blame for the Decatur bank i.hire to loose bank inspection. It is either .' t or a loose banking law, and both should be Vhtened up. t It is the irony of fate that some of the very who fought the hardest to keep South 'j'nalia out of Omaha are now fighting the hard 'J to land that vacant coinmissionership in the tuaha city halt.

This is Memorial day, when the nation pauses for a moment to place a wreath on the tomb of its soldier dead, and to "highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain." Men who were straight and strong, lithe and active, half a century ago now march with faltering steps, but the fire that lit their eyes in '65 is still clear and bright. They are the Grand Army of the Re public, indeed. And the younger veterans, who followed Old Glory into the Cuban brakes and tha glades of the Philippines, giving to that flag a new meaning and a higher mission, are the brothers in arms and patriotism of those older men, and we are all heritors of what they wrought. Memorial day has a deeper meaning for us now. In 1861 and 1808 war came upon the land unsought, and found the people unready. The tale of this unreadiness is found in the toll of death, taken, not on the battlefield, hut in the camp; in the base hospitals, not amidst the crash of cannon and the rattle of musketry, the rush ing charge and fierce grapple, where death for liberty is life's finest boon, but by disease which might have been prevented and the existence of which is still a source of shame. These men died because of ignorance. Their lives, wasted in vain, were the price paid for unreadiness. Will we commit the same blunder? When we resolve today that liberty shall have a new birth in this land, why not also resolve that we will make reasonable preparations, so that if our young men are called again to defend that liberty and the flag that symbolizes it, they will not fall victims to ignorance of the simplest re quirement of life in camp. Memorial day should teach something for the future by recalling the mistakes of the past. James J. Hill, Empire Builder. James J, Hill will be remembered as a builder. He came at a time when an empire was to be opened, and he had the clear vision to see its pos sibilities. The wonderful resources and limit less possibilities of the northwest appealed to him at a time when to others less gifted it seemed but a region of waste an3 cold and barrenness. His energy and enthusiasm brought his dream to realization, and added to the wealth of the world an immense storehouse of treasure, unlocked by the railroads he projected. His service will hardly be measured in dollar and cents. He not only built railroads, but he devised ways for building states and home. He encouraged set tlers to go into the wilderness and gave his as sistance to the beginnings, and lived to see much of his elfort take form in prosperous communities, where lie found only the wilds. He startled the railroad world a few years ago by his statetnent that it would require five billion of capital to put the line of this country into good working condition. Hi prophecy has been more than ful filled, and the railroads are still working to at tain, the place marked for them by this leader. The Burlington road is an example of his ability as a director. A giant figure ha gone from the transportation world, but hit example will long inspire his successor. Platformi to the Point. A platform "brief and to the point," a ug gested, would be a highly welcome innovation by the impending national conventions. The trouble is that the platform-makers are always beleag uered by spokesmen for all sorts of interests and orginizations backing projects calling for na tional legislation, all insisting upon the indorse ment of their particular proposals. The ten dency has been for year to string out the plat forms by adding a plank on this subject and a plank on that subject, with a view to attracting votes or preventing defections. Conditions seem favorable to eliminating a lot of these minor declarations, or at least cutting them down to a mere enumeration. At any rate, the day of fancy rhetoric and lengthy recitals of long-ago history is past. If the platform is intended to command more than mere momentary notice it must be confined chiefly to the live, throbbing issues that go to the core of current life and that must be met within the next few years to smooth the way for national development and insure the future welfare of the people. No Neutrality for Greece. Efforts of the king of Greece and his advisers to keep out of the war are likely to prove una vailing. Occupation of Saloniki by the allies i answered now by the occupation by Bulgar of Greek forts in Macedonia. That these forts were evacuated by the Greeks without resistance mav te interpreted as indicating Grecian leaning to Hie side of the central powers, but the fact that only moral ohjection was made to the occupation of Naloniki by the allies may as well be taken as evidence of Greek favor for their cause. This division of sentiment m Greece has been under stood front the first. The king has openly espoused the German isuse. while his former premier, Venerelos, a popular leader, has been vigorous in hit advocacy of the allied interests, Neither has been able to grt the support that would prtinit ihe open espousal oj one side or the ether, hut the prcssine being brought to bear by the actual operation, of war, and the activity nf Xl.r ru!gat tans, ancient enemies of the r. lent nu seise to precipitate a decision that otherwise could have been mdrfinitel) p,tt poird tireece will htr to Heilare on wlmh side ns lone an t nilliiniir will be tast Modifying Hi Mexican Policy. 1 ht aiHii.il,., f Hiriit if,,,,, a!,i!:ton that prlil'. t hat been revived trout Anirit, te, If tit in Mexwo. toinp' 'rung ot itn,f m tf, inved at l-e bands ot ', Mr,n g stmunenl is s ... ti.l fl a s . . at r .1 r im 4I !ie hot II -use It d .yi')! i,, rs in h maiiff wht ti e . !ta! ci f.oal ,, ,( hf , UMIJV ,,,! rt-a he. t' '"ii'ts' ! a It.

He gives on thi point the results of investigations in .Tit. i-ouis; "The kind of evidence that one gets as to the heredity of twinning may be indicated by refer- ...... in ornor, n( filtv 1 Oil it falTlilie. Thff , iiv, ,u " j investigator bad no knowledge of any ot these. families until, in each case, tne mrin 01 twins was reported to the bureau of vital statistics. On looking into the family histories, it was learned that these fifty new-born pairs of twins had 171 elder brother and iter born singly, and twenty (ten pair) who were twins. The fre quency of twins among the brothers and sis ter of twins then is about 1:18. In the mothers fraternities (groups of brother and sisters) there had been 318 single births and ten pairs of twin (1:32), and in the fathers', 219 single and eight pairs of twins (1:37), Comparing these figures with the 'normal incidence' for St. Louis (1:90.6) one is justified, especially since essentially iimi lar figure are obtained from more extensive data, in concluding that twin-production is fre quently a family peculiarity. "Analyzing the individual families, evidence it found that what seem to be hiovular twinning is hereditary in the direct female line. Whether there is any relation at all between the two type is an open question. While some of these fami lies furnish beautiful chart indicative of a he reditary tendency for twinning, other are fre quently met with in which, while there may be a record of many individuals in several genera tions, only one pair of twin appear. In these instances the twins sometime eem to be hiovu lar, ometime uniovular. Such family historie may indicate that while twinning is in lome way hereditary in most instances, it may nevertheless at time appear sporadically. The most prob able inference to be drawn from this fart would seem to be that the ability to produce twins is possibly common to all strains, and that the fre quency of twin-birth in different lines is merely relative. It is not likely, on the one hand, that strain will be found in which twins never occur, nor, on the other hand, in which there is nothing but twins. But that uch cause as may tend toward twin-production are more constant or react more effectually in 1 some line than in other seem evident. That one of the factor commonly involved in the case of both uniovular and biocular twinning is hereditary eem to be well established. The obstacle that are met in attempting to o!ve this problem are found to be of such a nature as to prevent a quick arrival at final conclusions, but they are not such as to discourage the hope that a definite solution of the problem may be obtained." Nebraska Press Comment Norfolk News: The Omaha Bee has adopted a bigger sire of type, such a the w. g. c. d. ha been using for thirty years. Welcome to our circle, Bee. Oconto Register: About fifty women from all walks of life applied for the position of "clowness" in answer to the ad. of a circu in Omaha. If any of them were dressed accord inn to the latest dictates of fashion they were already garbed for the role. Tekamah Herald: The Omaha Bee is cer tainly eivinff sufficient publicity to the wild-cat banking methods practiced by Cashier Elliott of the Farmers' State 1iank at Decatur, which was recently closed. If the state banking law cannot be enforced, the public should know the reason why. Gering Courier: The World-Herald made a "nonpartisan" appeal for Andy Morrissey for supreme judge, because he is a democrat. There are many republican papers who make a similar appeal tor rawcett, Because ne is a rcpumican. That's a game with two sides, but irrespective of politics, (awcett is the right man. Blair Tribune: Decatur's bank failure reads like a tale of frenzied finance and makes one think of Wall street and the bucket shops. The first year alter a change was made m the man agement a 5) per cent dividend was declared and the manipulation of the books fooled the State Banking Board. The promoter made things hum, and rumor had it that he owned six different automobiles in the two years' time. But the bubble burst and the promoters were brought back to mother earth w ith a bump that took all of the wind out of their sails. Moral: You must do something bigger than to break a country bank if you would get away with it. Kearney Hub: For something real nasty and offensively partisan it is not necessary to look lartlier lhait the billowing paragraph from the World-Herald: "While republican leaders keen howling for preparedness, and while mammoth parade are arranged and pulled otf to demon Mratr that the country is clamoring for it, the democratic administration is providing it" This is equivalent to the ih.uge that republicans planned the New York preparedness deiuoiistra t it hi and are planning the proposed demonstra tion at IbnaK". when it is a fact, as all know. that t tin e is absolutely nothing partisan in the prepai edness movement It is soinetlnnii quite new it the tune honored use of the petition and personal demonstration are to be suspended ust iieiatisr me ilcmovratic patty is in powri lull't you litillk so' Twice Told Talcs 1-1 I' f.aM.t ol I'.'luMn ' A Taltnte.fi Father Uthei ba t dfsi .1 iht he mini a Itiotunei a strut leftii bit touiiitul i.sn father r.'U iu ! u'v , !nit sfvrrf'i, h. r "d l-e b..v ii..s !fr !, an , ib Hs a I ss hrf I -it ... , ',.,. lH whi!
