Gloom)' View of Future Unwarranted.
The gloomy view of the future evidently en
tertained by some of the evangelical churchei it
not warranted by anything nrjw'fb be noted in the
political or economical, situation of the world.
That a great war is being waged in Europe for
the determination of certain political questions,
racial ambitions, and such economic factors as
may be involved in commercial supremacy, should
not operate to support the suggestion that mis
sionaries must be sent to Europe later to restore
Christianity. fThe.war, in Its most terrible aspect,
is not blotting out civilization, nor even shaking
its foundations. Human destiny is being tried in
the fire of conflict, just as it has been in 'the days
of the world from its beginning. Man has not
yet come to a stature of mental or moral growth
when he may be ruled by pure reason and with
no show of iforce to support authority. But this
does not mean that his religious nature loses in
proportion as he turns to violence. Paradoxical
as it may seem, the intensity of his faith in the
future is increased as daily facing death brings
him closer and closer to the solution of life's sec
ond great mystery, and even the most abhorrent
tasks of war are undertaken as a duty springing
from i devotion to principle and a patriotic im
pulse that is the stronger because of. the deep
seated belief in the fundamentals of .religion on
which patriotism finally rests. .. Creeds may suffer,
and sects may disappear under the wave of war,
but religion will not vanish, ',and , Christianity,
which has survived greater shocks, will outlast
the present : f ;.

The' census bureau comes within two years of
the pace set by the industry, and frames in figures
a notable .picture of development, During, the

"" . France and Its Future Population.
' France is already discussing the' question of
repopulation as a serious phase , of the general
problem of reconstruction after peace' comes
again. The battle of Charleroi jostled the French
people into a realization of, a truth savant's Kad
vainly ' tried to , make them realize that they
were falling behind in the primary matter of
population. Second to Austria In 8l4 and in 1880
in number of people, France in 1913 had been out
stripped by both Germany and England, and was
being closely pressed by Italy. ' In 191 T deaths in
France outnumbered births by 34,000. The full
significance of these figures' in (heir bearing on
national life it now understood, by the. French. .
It is not merely a Question of providing "can
non fodder." If it should be brought about that
France will never again see a war, the greatness
of the country csnnot be maintained by a dwind
ling population, France is important to Europe,
and to the world,' because of its arts, its manufac
tures, and its many other indispensible contribu
tions to the service of mankind. No one realises
this more keenly than do the French, and it is
interesting that plans for the encouragement of
families are now being formulated. Advantages
of education and m other ways are to be provided
at public expense, and it is even suggested that
premiums be psid for children, at an increasing
ratio, to give an incentive to larger families.
, Whatever, action is taken by the French in
meeting the. shortage of population, which has
been so ruthlessly forced upon their attention , by
the war,' it will receive much consideration from
eugen.itts generally. With the outcry against
raising boys to be soldiers, faddists contending for
birtlt control,; and some other factors that col
laterally affect the problem, given, due. weight,
French, efforts Jo rci;h a, solution of the situation
will ba worth fwatching-i i: l "-"?

Spanish-American war it. has been the practice to
select a few graduates from schools where mili
tary training is given to. supplement the classes
from West Potof, and thus provide for the vacan
cies in the roster of commissioned officers. But
this means., will not provide .enough properly
trained men to furnish the pew regiments with of
ficers, and if the army should be expanded to war
strength, it would be chiefly, officered by men
taken from 'civil life! with little more of military
training than the boys under them. To include
the e.Cieriee Of arms with flie' other sciences now

eager to complete the qlrota. The earnestness of,
the English people in the war is no longer to be
questioned. y Political questions are still agitated,,
and differences of opinion on lesser matters exist,

While I liave not yet seen the moving pictures
of our Nebraska semi-centennial history pageant,
I am told that they are very fine, and that the
best pictures show the parade passing the presi
dential party in the reviewing stand, with the Bee
building and the city hall on the other side. Here
was Nebraska history in the background as well
as in the foreground, and it was noted by others,
as well, as may be attested by the following let
ter I have received from Frank J. Sadilek of Wil
ber. one of Nebraska's most prominent Bohemian
citizens, which I cannot refrain from reproducing:
While watching the parade in Omaha, and
when that part representing the first settlers
- coming to this state in prairie schooners came
around, it reminded me of your father, Edward
Roscwater, to whom a great deal of credit is
due for large settlement of agricultural people
When he first began to publish a Bohemian
paper in Omaha, there was just such a picture
on the front page. A covered wagon on the
prairie,' husband and wife standing by the' fire
and a group of small children playing around,
while the oxen were grazing near by. Many of
my Bohemian countrymen were induced, on ac
count of his writings of the richness of the soil
of Nebraska, to come from Iowa, Wisconsin
and other states to locate here, and through
' them many of their friends from the old coun
try. Now all are prosperous beyond their ex
pectations. What a consolation it would have been to
his heart could he have seen that great proces
sion, with the president of the United States
viewing it ight across the street, where once
upon a time stood on a high hill his little home,
now surrounded by skyscrapers.
Allusion might also be made to the fact that
the city hall stands on the site of the residence of
Governor Alvin Saunders, who held his guberna
torial commission from Abraham Lincoln. I have
i faint recollection of the serenade that was given
him there on his return borne when he was later
elected United States senator. .
Stringe, is it not, that my attention was at
tracted almost simultaneously by the demolition
of the old Germania hall building over on Harney
street east of Nineteenth, which directly adjoined
the spot to which "the little home on the high
hill", referred to was moved and remodeled for
bur occupancy to clear the location for the pres
ent Bee building. We lived over there for about
five years while the neighboring Germania hall
was the center of the social activities of the Ger
mans of Omaha, who then as now constituted one
of the substantial elements in the city's population.-
here were held the turnfests and ssenger
fests, the dances, masquerades, anniversary feiers
and, occasionally, . the presentation of German
drama. For a time the building served as a club
house, though its main use was for a German
American school maintained there to teach pu
pils facility with both the German and English
languages. The old-time Germans must be sorry
to see the building go, although it has long since
outlived its usefulness.
In this column recently I related an anecdote,
in connection with the visit of the federal land
bank board to Omaha, repeating a remark I had
n'ade to Herbert Quick when he suggested that
the place that gets the bank must be tornado
pi oo,, iriitl l responded: 'Then Omaha's one of
the few places that can qualify, for it has been
scientifically established that tornadoes never hit
twice in the same soot, and we've had ours." .
. .. A. little, insurance paper published in Indian
apolis taxes me up on mis ana insists mat over
stepped the limit when I said this fact was "scien
tilwally established," and it tells me that it has
never been established, "scientifically or other
wise' that anv. given locality may not be visited
,by, a tornado more than once. To make my dis:
comnuire an tne more complete, mis- interesting
statement is added: . i
...Asa matter of fact, the collection of accurate
tornado data goes back but a few decades.
Lieutenant FinTey's work, the first serious at
tempt, we believe, that was made to classify
tornadoes, being published .in the early '80s.
Inasmuch, as the area covered by a tornado
rarely exceeds twenty-five square miles, and the
average number that visits Nebraska being less
than three per year, the probability that any
particular area in the state's 76,000 square miles
will be hit more than once is remote. Yet,
Finley says, "That certain topographical fea
tures in our western states are extrmely fa-
. vorablc to the development and the consequent
occurrence of tornadoes in the same locality."
This, however, is questioned by later invest!-
We received more than 1 000 replies from
policyholders scattered over fifteen or twenty
states in the tornado investigation which we
made early this year. Many advised us that
tornadoes in their localities invariably followed).
, water courses, This is said by meteorologists
' to be nothing more than a coincidence; yet the
observation has been made by men in widely
separated sections of the country t
.Prof. Henry has figured it out that in states
where .tornadoes Occur most frequently that
"for any specific area or farm -of one square
mile, the probability of being visited by a tor
nado is less then one-sixteenth of 1 per cent
per century;" yet Mt. Carmel, III., was hit twice
in 1887; Stillwater, Minn., was hit On July 14,
1893, and again on May 9, 1894; Kansas City,
Mo., in July, ltf0; May. 1883, and May, 1886;
I ouisville, Ky.. in If 60. 1890 and 1892; St. Louis,
Mo., in 1872. 1890, .1893 and 1896. It would ap
pear from this record that Lieutenant Finley s
observations are correct. That being the case
the government should take at least one of the
federal reserve banks out of Missouri. ."".
. . -In the face of that exhibit it is douhtlea time
for me to back-track a 'trifle, tut I still insist
that Omaha meets all the requisite qualifications
for the land bank location. ".. .
