Memorial Day and the Future.
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
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

Washington University Medical school, St.

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.
