The Thrills That Kill.
People who attended the auto races at the
Omaha Speedway are not complaining that the
exhibition was tame or that they were victims
of a bunco game. They experienced the thrills
that kilt or, rather, the thrill produced by killing,
namely two accidenta with one fatality and that
seems to be the height of racing sport
It is a popular mania, perhaps not developed
here more than elsewhere, to see daring men, as
it were, toy their lives. The people want thrills
and insist upon having then at any price and at
any cost of life and limb.
But, what's the good of it and what is ac
complished after it is all over? It is only a ques
tion of time when the law that put an end to
dueling and to knockout prize fighting will inter
pose a restraining hand on the auto-speed maniacs.
Water and the Thrlety Corn Fields.
Billions of cubic feet of water are impounded
back of the Pathfinder dam; thousands of acres
of corn in western Nebraska thirst for that water.
To bring the two together means to turn the idle
water into golden dollars. Why is it not done?
Because the reclamation aervice of the United
States has stored up the water and feels that
it has a right to keep it What for? To irrigate
the dry lands of the semi-arid region it is in
tended to serve. Well, why doesn't the reclama
tion service let the water go to the corn fields
that need it? Nobody outside of official Washing
ton seems to know. The Pathfinder dam was
constructed to store up waters of the North
Platte that ran away useless. Great ditches were
built and many acres Of land were brought under
cultivation, until the limit was reached. Further
down the river are other acres of land, much
needing irrigation, but now deprived of the water
that is held idle by the Pathfinder. This isn't at
all in keeping with the purposes of that dam. It
may be that some red tape will have to be cut, and
some technicalities overlooked, but the fields now
drying up ought to have that water. It wouldn't
matter a great deal if the Pathfinder reservoir
waa emptied during the next six' weeks. A lot
more water will pour down from the mountains
of Colrado and Wyoming and replenish the store,
and the corn in the crib will look a lot better
than idle water behind, the big dam.
Democrats Dodge Child Labor.
In making up its program of "imperative legis
lation," the democratic steering committee of the
senate has decided to allow the Keating child
labor bit! to lie over until December. This meas
ure waa passed by the house several months agd,
and sent to the senate, where it has been held up
by the influence of the southern cotton mill own
ers, who are the ones chiefly concerned in its de
feat Although the platform adopted at St. Louis
says, "we favor the speedy passage of an effective
federal child labor law," the dominant party pre
fers to exclude the messure from the list of things
to be done, and will fritter away the rest of the
present aession of congress in debating the ship
ping bill, defeated st the last aession, and almost
at surely doomed to defeat in the present The
deliberate evasion of a real Issue will not be over
looked by the voters, who can not be fooled again
by the tham of s platform promise so openly
Ignored. ' The democrats prate loudly of their
devotion to the reform involved in the Keating
bill, but they dare not face the test of Its passage,
for fear of offending the cotton baront of the
touth. . , 1 : ', ;
Education and Fsrming.
The criticism of farmers for haphaxrd methodt
of horse raiting uttered by Dr. C. W. McCamp
belt of the Kansas City Live Stock Registry
board before the convention of Missouri Valley
veterinarians, applies with equal force to nearly
all branches of farm' production. A lack of in
telligent management is evident in many direc
tions. Waste of material and energy spring1 from
attempting too much, resulting in little being well
done. Intelligence applied to fewer things
brings better and more satisfactory returns in
the long run. In farming, as in all other activ
ities, knowledge makes for success, and the meas
ure of success it in proportion to the knowledge
spplied. . A recent report on farm life in New
York state shows that one farmer in three makes
money and only one in twenty-eight makes $2,000
or more a year, That this poor showing it due
to poverty of knowledge and shiftlessness is
proven ' by the fact that farmers with a high
school education make double and college men
treble the profits per acre than do the unschooled
farmers. In the west the unschooled farmer; as a
rule, won s competence through hard knocks, rich
lands and the rising valuea of products and acres.
The later farmer, requires more capital, more
knowledge of soils, and the indispensable hearti
ness which converts raw material into the best
paying marketable commodity. Today more than
ever before the farm offers the greatest rewards
for intelligent energy. No other occupation more
surely guarantees independence.
: Plea for Nonpartisan Support.
In his speech at Detroit thepresident pleads
for "nonpartisan" support, urging that voters
forget party and rally behind his pretensions to a
second term. It is characteristic of democrats to
resort to this sham patriotism whenever threat
ened by defeat , The hollowness of the maneuver,
nor ita exposure, is not sufficient to deter them
from its practice. They are slways "nonpartisan"
when seeking for votes In republican states, but
we yet have to hear the cry raised by them any
where in the sunny touth, where democratic ma
jorities are reliable. But the democrats are never
nonpartisan when making plant for government,
or when carrying out duties devolving on them.
The present administration, for example, has vio
lated the civil service law in letter and spirit, and
has arbitrarily created 30,000 positions under, the
government to be filled by "deserving democrats."
Mr. Wilson may be a nonpartisan in Michigan, but
he's s good democrat in Georgia.1

larger than the other."
Brittling with rage, the lady left that thop
and tought another.- Here, again, the assistant

Its tissue changes in the spinal eord and
the characteristic symptoms have been weil
described and everywhere known to scholarly
men, yet the profession does not succeed well
in the treatment of patients thus afflicted
for the reason that they attempt to treat
the disease Instead of treating the patient.
Their philosophy of life and disease, born
out of the ignorance, errors and superstitions
of a credulous age, arc not in harmony with
modern evolutionary -ecience. They are ob
sessed with - germophobia, and blinded by
the financial rewards of the germ theory, aa
the fundamental, primary cause of disease.
They refuse to see the truth that chemical
and biological factors in the blood stream
are primary, and the presence of germs a
secondary matter They do not see the
truth that a relatively pure blood stream
la ample protection against any germ and
all forms of disease. So-called pathological
germs cannot live and do harm in a pur
blood stream. But when from violations of
physiological laws and sanitary precaution
the blood stream is impoverished and vital
forces weakened for lack of proper and
auffieient food, so often found among the
poor in our cities, or among the wealthier
class of people who arc overfed with excess
of various kinds where elimination of wast
matter is imperfect and henc then is an
accumulation of chemical substances that
impair tissue resistance and pollute th
blood stream making a soil where th germ
can proliferate and destroy the patient, then
disease Is produced,
Then is no good reason whatever, for
Injecting millions of dead bacteria, or se
rums into a human body to kill pathological
germs or to prevent disease when then la
a far better way of purifying th blood
stream so no germ can exist then and do
harm. The medical profession is wrong In
teaching people to look outside of them
selves for the causes of disease. Th truth
la, w build our own diseases, by our in
tense emotions, perverted functions, Improper
feedings and failure to eliminate Injurious
chemical substances, that strictly speaking,
constitute an auto-intoxication. Germ exist
everywhere in nature. In health and disease,
and they can do no harm in a body pro
tected by a pure blood stream.
Epidemics and endemics feed upon those
who have a poisoned blood stream, and
stop where then Is no auto-intoxication.
Disease cannot go fnm person to person
when the life Is properly lived and the blood
stream relatively pun. The common teaching
and beliefs of the medical profession are
old superstitions unworthy of those who can
and do think. Infantll paralysis is not to
be handled with drugs, serums, or vaccines,
but by sanitary condition, right thinking,
right living and a strong vital resistance
reinforced by a relatively pure blood stream.
The day is coming when people will be
ashamed to be sick. The physician of the
futun will be a teacher rather than a dope
giver. The so-called germ theory of dis
ease and th method of treatment em
ployed by most physicians an, like vaccina
tion, an Insult to my intelligence, and the
common sens of thinking people.

Omaha, July 15. To th Editor of Th
Bee: I notice that then I being experi
enced some considerable difficulty In deliver
ing progressive party men wholesale. This
la exactly what I expected and I would hav
been very much disappointed otherwise. Th
progressive party 1 made up of men who
believe In something, and It Is hard to de
liver that kind of men.
And then is plenty of room for dlfferene
of opinion as to what progressives should
do In th coming election. I, frankly, have
doubt. I consider the present administra
tion about a uncertain, wabbly and ama
teurish a It Is possible for a man of ability
to mak It, and the appointments about as
disgraceful as possible, consistent with good
intentions, but if I believed that the cham
pioning of Hughea by the hyphens meant
th leaning of Hughe by th millionth part
of an inch toward surrendering any part of
hi Independence to any foreign element, I
would be for Wilson tf he hadJeen wrong
all of th time instead of only two-third of
To me, then I Just on question worth
whil before the American people today.
That la, is then an American people? An
we a nation or just a jumble of discordant
laments T Have we the courage of our con
viction, granting that we hav any convic
tion, or an we so enamond of ease and
prosperity and the full belly that we will
submit to anything rather than fight? De
we want our boy brought up to take kicks
and cuffs from every bully rather tnan
come horn with an occasional black eye?
To m it teems patent that then 1 no
measuring th harm that Wilson has don
along this line. Hughes couldn't b worse,
therefore X am for Hugh, at th tarn time
granting Wilson all his good intentions. Hav
ing demoralised, with his false standards of
courage, and his official recognition of flab
bines and slacking, the young men of the
country, he now And himself in a position
when he must try to undo all this and, out
of these same young man, build up an army.
I hav been for Roosevelt, I am still for
Roosevelt, who created the issu of Ameri
canism, and who did th only sensible thing
in refusing to accept a nomination on the
third party ticket, after the nomination of
Hughe. Hughes, after personal Interviews,
has been able to satisfy Roosevelt's rather
too fervid patriotism and Americanism. If
he Is right on that Issue, he Is right for me.
Other Issues can wait. Whether we have
a country that Is as good as it might be
la of secondary Importance to whether we
have a country at all. Whether Nebraska
hall be dry or wet Is important: whether
men shall hav good or starvation wages is
Important ; whether women and children
shall work under healthful conditions or
the reverse is important; whether officials
shall be honest or dishonest Is important;
but all these can wait. The thing la to
hav a country of our own men and women
of courage to assert their right to work
them out without outside interference. Wil
son makes for flabbiness, vacillation and un
certainty. There Is nothing la th history
of Hughes to indicate such tendencies.
Therefore I am for Hughe.

how the len of gray
And a fellow realises that he's wandering
far away , . ,
From tho pleanures of hie boyhood and his
youth and nevermore
Will know the Joy of laughter as he did In
days of yore.
Oh. It'e then he starts to thinking of a
stubby little lad i
With a faee as brown berries and a
soul supremely glad.
When a gray-haired dreamer wanders down
the lanes of memory
And forgets the living present for the time
He takes off his shoes and stockings, and
he thrown his coat away,
And he's free from all ret rict Ions, save the
rult'S of manly play.
He may be In tattered garment, but bare
headed in the sun
He forgets hie proud successes and the riches
he haa won.
Oh, there's not a man that llveth but would
give his all to be
The stubby little fellow that In dreamland
he can see.
And the splendors that surround him and
the joys about him spread
Only seem to rise and taunt him with the
boyhood that has fled.
When the hair about the temples begin to
show time's silver stain.
Then the richest man that'a living yearns
to be a boy again.
