There are a few points in the corn
belt of the state where the ground is
becoming a little dry, but not to an
extent to cause any alarm. In fact,
it is generally contended that the dry
, weather is beneficial, as it is causing
the corn to mature more rapidly.

Some of the farmers in the South

largest in- the hist-ry of the state,
many of the farmers preparing 3

In most sections of the state1 the

tirely absent, it has not existed there
to such an extent as to cause alarm.
Last year very few cases were re
ported from Nebraska, therefore it
seemed probable that more cases
might be expected this season, and
such has, in fact, been the case. So,
while we have had only a few cases,
so tar as known, in the state up to
the present time. ; nevertheless, be
cause of the fact that we have had
more than last year, and because the
month of September is isually one
of the months of greatest prevalence,
tne state department ot health deems
a word, of warning not out of place.
rnysicians are requested to be on
the lookout for the mild and "abor
tive" cases of this disease, and they
are urged to promptly report all
case's coming under their observation.
Local health officers should also re
port all cases to the state department
without delay. ;
A state department official will pef
sonally investigate as many as possi
ble of the reported cases.' 1
The department has been asked if
it is advisable to open the schools in
communities where this, disease has
recently existed, or now exists,' and
to this the department replies that
there is no reason whatever for not
opening them, lit would, however,
suggest to teachers the importance
of being on the watch for" such symp
toms as are described.

Attitude and Attack the
Copenhagen, Sept. 8. A well-defined
movement is manifesting itself
in Germany, combining a protest
against the attitude of the Reichstag
majority in adopting the peace reso
lution, with expressions of indigna
tion at the references in President
Wilson's reply to Pope Benedict to
internal conditions in that country.
Business organizations in various
parts of Germany show signs of
careful nurture and acceleration of
the movement from some central
force which- is perhaps not far re
moved from the interests now con
trolling the Lokal Anzeiger of Ber
lin, the main protagonist of the move
ment. This situation should be considered
in connection with the campaign now
being made in the conservative press
for overthrow of the Reichstag's de
cision. To Use Machinery.
How far these newspapers are in
earnest in suggesting dissolution of
the Reichstag is difficult to determine.
They certainly do not desTire it un
less the government will use the elec
tion machinery, in connection with
press propaganda, in favor of annex
ationist candidates in the campaign.
The chamber of commerce of El
bing is the latest commercial organi
zation to join those of Berlin, Bre
men, Hamburg and Lubeck in pro
tests against peace without annexa
tions and the note of President Wil
son. The municipal authorities of Halle
have issued a flaming protest against
Mr. Wilson, declaring that he insulted
the German people gravely and
shamefully in his reply to the pope.
Only a few newspapers thus far have
printed the reports from Washington
stating that the American note did
not necessarily mean that the elimina
tion of the Hohenzollerns was re
garded as essential to peace.
