Working Out 0or ItlTBtion. , '
Are we s heedless generation, incapable of
appreciating the meaning of the great processes
of evolution in operation about us, or do we
realise that the world is breaking away from much
we looked, upon as established snd Immutable,
and thst those of us who survive will emerge
into sn ers of newer, and maybe better, social
and political adjustment? This thought is not
new; it has be'en uttered in many forms during
the last three years, and through all the wide
range over which the resultant' discussion hss
pursued the idea, one steady' note haa sounded.
The race is working out s new phase of its sal
vation. Ideals which embody principles funda
mental in themselves snd essentially neceaiary to
correct human relationship Sre coming into
Nature's wsys sre tsiy to note, but difficult
to comprehend. The emergence of a continent,
the subsidence of snother, the disappearance of
sn islsnd, or sny of the msny physical changes
we continually note, are readily explained by
application of our limited knowledge of ereation'a
Isws. We marvel for a moment and go on snout
our business, unmindful of the fact that similar
laws sre working in society, and have so worked
from the very beginning of things.1 WsrS msy
be merely the projection on s more pretentious
sesle of the petty differences thst arise between
men, but they are evidences of a divergence of
thought and purpose, and of the constantly oper
ating processes thst tend forever to Change.
From th sposrent evil of the moment always
hss advance proceeded.' Just now man's enleve
ments sre being tested on the snvil of Destiny,
snd whstever is worthy to survive will survive,
its fiber more closely welded because of the
pounding it sustslni, snd therefore more fit for
the newer life into which it will come from the
trial it now endures. God's in His heaven, all's
right with the world," still.
ffo Need for Hysteria.
Young men who sre now going off to preb-
sble wsr sre lesving behind dependents. This
is Inevitable. It is alio inevitable that these de
pendents be provided for. Many employers srs
generously srrsnging that the volunteers who
lesve their service shall be carried on the pay
roll for a definite length of time, until the neces
sary readjustment of the soldiers' affairs can be
made. Comprehensive plans for aasisting those
who need it will be worked out in good sesion.
People are not likely to allow the soldier's fsmily
to suffer for wsnt of necessaries. Just now a
revival of the Relatives' union, or sone similsr
organisation is in order. The work of looking
after soldiers' dependents csn be quietly and ef
fectively accomplished through such an organisa
tion, and the duty of the public to its defenders
thus dischsrged. No need for excitement or hys
teris of any sort is apparent, but orderly method
to meet the need should at one be set in motion,
Rcandaliitng the Btnknptcjr Law.
A recent decision of our Nebraska supreme
court materially est down the fees clsimed by
the lawyers who had fought out a will case and
were on the point of absorbing the big end of the
estatt to the exclusion of the heirs, the court
csrefulty explaining that, while the lawyers did
the work, the smount involved did not wsrrsnt
the fees demsnded. This decision of the court
unquestionsbly accords with popular sentiment
which Is sgsinst estlng up sn estate by any grab-
game litigation. .
But what is true of property left by a person
actually deceased applies equally to the property
of a person financially defunct We have before
us the creditors' notice for a bankrupt corporation
in litigation in the federal court of Illinois show
ing a balance in the hands of the trustees amount
ing to $509.31 with s petition asking allowance
of $20.98 for expenses incurred, $2,500 for the
trustee's attorneys, $636 for the receiver, $1,500
fnr the receiver's attorney. S702.62 lor certain
other liabilities incurred, and $500 for the credi
tors' attorneys and further notice that the ques
tlon is to be taken up "as to the declsration of a
first and final dividend on claims proved snd al
lowed." In other words, with $5,209.38 in hand,
the trustee, the receiver snd the various sets of
attorneys have put in claima tdtalling $5,859.62,
or $450 more than the aggregate assets, leaving
fine prospect for "first and final" dividend on
claims of actus! creditors proved snd snowed.
Unfortunately this is not an exceptional
but is a fair sample of whst is happening every
day In bankruptcy courte all over the land, aa a
result of which disgusted creditors compromise
any claim rither than take a chance in the
bankruptcy lottery where they stand to draw
nothing but blanks. An. effort is being made to
repeat or modify the federal bankruptcy law, but
it naturany meets witn tne vigorous opposition
of the folks who sre fattening on the spoils. As
administrated, or rather aa it la being abused, the
bankruptcy proceedings are a graft and a fraud
and simply an opening, protected by law, for any
one to repudiate hia debta whenever he-wants to.

The Department of Agriculture gives out
some statistical information ss to the acreage
planted in watermelon a, but with the fatuity of
the present democratic administration, it in
cludes only the pstches in Dixieland. We have
no desire to pluck even a leaf from whatever
laurels the southern planters msy clsim as their
guerdon for having reduced the watermelon from
its eminence as a summertime boon to the sor
did condition of aa article of commerce, but we
would like to call Washington's attention to the
fact thst some melons do grow up north. : Who,
outside of tha precincts of Secretary Houaton'i
department, never heard of Muacatine laland,
for example, and who doesn t know of the lus
cious triumphs that lie in luxury along the sandy
bottom lands of uncounted rivers snd creeks
through sit the corn belt,, where the watermelon
stilt presides ss a fruit and is just aa essential to
existence in July and August as the air we
breathe or the water we swim in? Go to; the
south msy have a monopoly on mint and hasel
splitters, but us folks up no'th can teach 'em all,
even Texas, what a real watermelon is like.
A aotsble back-from-the-city movement is in
progress smong the garment manufacturers, of
New York as a result of the present strike of era
ptoyes. The industry employes 25,000 persons,
with an annual payroll of $250,000,000. It is the
settled belief of these employers thst industrial
peace Is impossible in a large city where strong
support is given striking workmen. In small
communities the absence of this influence makes
for peace. The greater incentive for the out-of-
town movement lies in the opportunity rural sur
roundings offers for cheaper tabor snd inferior
working conditions two features hitherto notori
ous in the garment industry of New York.

was the ally of Italy a million in gold and en
couragement to resist in Tripoli. To, bring this
gold, which wss contraband of war, into Tunis,
Enver had conceived the idea of shoeing with
