homa, a deserving democrat, at the head of a
division to deal with the matter, and Mr. Fig;
promptly proceeded to enlist the services of
other democrats, more or less' deserving, and
the hunt was on, Every now and then the boom
of the Figg bass drum might be heard, but it
was the only sound that greeted ears, strained to
catch the first cracking noise that was to be
followed by the crash of the tumbling fabric of
high prices. Nothing doing. The profiteers,
read about Figg and his purpose, and turned
again to their work. Every tim "Mitch"
Palmer emitted another expression of determi
nation to punish the blood suckers, they sent
prices up another notch. Finally, the attorney
general sees the end of his funds, and so must
set Mr. Figg and his cohorts adrift, his work
undone and the, campaign a failure. The public
long ago learned, however, that it most look for
relief elsewhere than in the democratic admin
istration offices at Washington. I
MAN ANp NATION.
In the confidence of free-will we say a
man's life is what he makes it. And so, inonei
sense, it is. But it depends largely on his sur
roundings, on physical and social conditions,
which is the general expression meaning climate,
the soil he treads upon, the people he associates
with, and the average intelligence of the popu
lation in which he is a unit all which, taken
together, mean for him opportunity or lack of.it.
No mantis within himself wholly the master
of his destiny. From his childhood too many
threads outside Bis own personality are tied to
him, tolbind, lead, restrict and control his acts.
Time also is a factor. In youth he is sanguine
and imagines Jiimself unfettered. Middle age
finds him conscious of many limitations tin
dreamed of in' his enthusiastic youth. Old age
too often overtakes him disappointed, disil
lusioned and if he has learned to look truth
squarely in the face aware that he has been
used by an infinite power for purposes he does
not fully comprehend.
Three things the old man realises: That his
whole life has been dominated by laws not of
bumari making; that his entry into the world
is still a mystery to him; and that his departure
from earthly activities will be against his will.
The birth of a man means a life that leads
inexorably to death. The birth of a nation
means the governmental life of a people, which
also leads inexorably to that government's
death. All history, both of the individual and
the nation, leads to that certain conclusion.
As the man protects himself against an early
and therefore untimely end, by what reason 'and
the experience of other men teach him are
wholesome and strengthening habits, so a na-'
tion, if its people are enlightened, seeks to pro
long its existence by avoiding excesses and
shunning those things which have led to the
death of other nations. But while man or na
tion may prolong its vigor by right living,
neither can forever avoid death, although both
put off the inevitable end by every expedient in
their power. Some men pin their faith to a
sound philosophy of life and live long; others
yield to bad habits, resort to quacks and nos
trums, and die early. Some nations hold fast
to sound principles and live' for many genera
tions; others flee to strange and radical
, doctrines and perish miserably in their youth.
The United States is young as the lives of
governments are measured. Its only dangerous
sickness was the malady of slavery. Bleeding
cured it of that poisonous infection.
But it must not be supposed, because Amer
ica is young and strong, that it is iibt 'subject to
acute and fatal diseases, just as the young man;
The germs that lead to the illness arid death of
nations are everywhere, just as thoscthat at-
tack men. There must be right living to keep
the nation in health. Our present youthful vi
tality has been nourished and built up by na
tional "good habits," exemplified in the con
stitution of our republic, in our legislative, ex
ecutive and judicial systems, and in our 'gov
ernment of, by and for the people. Our national
life blood is pure as yet, because as a whole the
people are clean, patriotic, liberty-loving and
v But we are all the time receiving new ele
ments into our system by immigration. Some
of human importations are wholesome,
. some pestilent. We must have a care about
permitting vicious enemies to come to or re
main with us, or we shall suffer infection. We
; still hold to Ihe principles of the fathers cf our
nation, which is well for us. But no nation
can live and grow without change. Nothing is
at rest in this world, neither men, nor principles
of government, nor nations. Change is the law
of the life of every earthly thing, whether in
dividual, legislative or constitutional. It is our
task to so educate ourselves in love pf countfy
and of our people, that justice shall prevail
Successful in that, our national life will en-
4ure through centuries. Failing in it early death
is certain. . .
The unrest following the death of the im
perial German government still .disturbs the
world. We feel it in abnormal economic and
industrial conditions; but if we retain our fidel-
' ity to law and order, voter down the dangerous
i remedies and false doctrines proposed by. vis
ionary and radical minorities, the world "war
will not seriously interrupt the heaithtui prog
" ress of our national life. We must remember
, that the ballot directly influences the life of the
nation, as well as our individual prosperity and
happiness. " ,
H. C. of L. Defeats Government.
Thevattornejr general of the United States
has abandoned his campaign against the h. c. of
I. because of its high cost Forced to practice
- economy in the conduct of his department, in
order to avoid a deficit, Mr. Palmer has dis-
- mantled his special machinery for overtaking
the profiteers, and will allow the regularly con
stituted agencies of justice to deal with the mat
ter. Nothins in this to excite surprise, although
' ' comment on it js likely to be varied and bitter.
Mr. Palmer some time ago announced with con
siderable vehemence his intention of pursuing
the profiteer to the-end, to bring down the cost
of living, and to somehow redeem the promise
made by the democrats so long ago. He started
out with a brass band, putting one t-igg of Okla
Why ,Vote for Pershing.
Not' a real argument has been advanced in
favor of any l the candidates for president on
the republican ticket that can not be applied
equally and with full force to the cause of John
J. Pershing. ,
His Americanism is unquestioned; he has
shown his devotion and fidelity to American
ideals in every way. If it is a question of ex-,
ecutive capacity, he has given ample proof that
he possesses that in highest degree; does the
country want a business man for president,
Pershing has handled bigger business transac
tions than any of the men whose names are
mentioned in connection with the office. As a
statesman and diplomatist he has shown rare
qualities. In fact, he only falls behind his rival i
in one point; he is not an experienced politician, L
and has never had a press agent.
. Any state in the union would be proud to
claim John J. Pershing as a citizen, 'and Ne
braska certainly is. Our people take real pride
in the fact that this great world figure pf a man
has his home in their midst. They also feel a
distinct satisfaction in the knowledge that he
is not only a possible but a probable nominee
of the republican party for president, which is
equivalent to his election. They know that for
tius reason the candidates from outside Ne
braska are making every endeavor within their
power to' take the state away from Pershing.
Every good reason is in favor of Nebfaskans
voting for the home candidate. The demo
crats are going to do this for Senator Hitch
cockj'so also should republicans vote for John
. Pershing.- Stand up for Nebraska 1
From time to time efforts are made to im
peach the essentially religious character of
Abraham Lincoln's life. He has even been
charged with infidelity.
Dr. Lyman Abbott, in a book review, ef
fectually disposes of tjiese slanders with two
quotations. The first is front Lincoln's second
inaugural, and follows:
Fondly do we hope fervently do we pray
that, this mighty scourge of war may speed
ily pass away. Yet, if God wills that it con
tinue until all the wealth piled up by the
bondman's 2S0 years of unrequited toil shall
be sunk, and until every drop of blood drawn
with the lash shall be paid by another drawn
with the sword, as was said 3,000 years ago,
so still it must be said, "The judgments of the
Lord' are true and righteaus altogether."
Lincoln was not a churchman. That is, he
was not a member of any church; but he fre
quently attended church services, including mid
week prayer meetings. He once said, and this
is Dr. Abbott's second quotation:
When any church will inscribe over its
altar as its sole qualification' for membership
the Savior's condensed statement of the sub
stance of both the law and Gospel, Thou shalt
love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and
with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and
thy neighbor as thyself that church will I
join with all my heart and soul.
There was the declaration of a man, truly
religious at heart, who would not bind himself
to an acceptation of man-made interpretations
of God's will.

S A Sham Distinction.
How to Keep Well
. By Dr. W. A. EVANS
A large part of the widespread
use of patent medicines is founded
on the mystery of medicine and the
natural credulity of the human anl
malt In an article on "Credulity
and Cured," Dr. Frederick Peterson
says: . . .
"The healthy organism is difficult
enough to know and to understand,
but when we have .added to this the
innumerable diseases that develop
within the body and the scores of
intangible and invisible enemies that
attack it from the outside the prob
lem grows colossal and it is no won
der that people in general, no mat
ter how erudite in other directions,
have not the smallest Conception of
the problems of medical therapy."
If one knows nothing of a subject
the soil is prepared for faith, pre
conception, conviction. The great
majority of illnesses are temporary,
self-limited, and tend to recovery by
nature ' unassisted. It is not sur
prising, then, that when an Intel
ligent professor or learned clergy
man happens to take during such
a spell of illness a packet of powder
ed cottage cheese sold under a
catchy name his prompt recovery
should fill him with a profound con
viction of the value of the remedy.
He has this one convinoing case.
Being his own, it lends a strong per
sonal note to his recommendation
of the agent to his friends. In fact,
he becomes an authority by a single
case, commends the remedy to oth
ers, and even writes letters of his
experience for use by the adver
tisers. The common illustration on this
)ioint is Bishop Berkeley and a tar
water made by mixing a gallon of

Lady Astor Wins for Women. "
For the first time in more than two genera
tions a nofable change is about to be made in
British divorce laws, doing away with the ddii-i
ble standard "of morality. Up to now for many
years infidelity on part of the wife has been
cause for divorce in England, while not on part
of the husband. An amendment to equalize this
was pending before the House of Commons,
with scant prospect ' for passage, when Lady
Nancy Astor came to its defense. She did not
plead for' divorce to be made easier, but she did
ask that the law equalize the Sexes in their
right tovdivorce. "You will never get moral
ity," she said, "so long as you recognize a dou
ble standard for men and women. We must
uplift our sons and daughters to a high ideal of
moral equality." She doe's not believe that
American women have gained anything of merit
because of the ease with which divorce is ob
tainable over here, but she does hold that the
single standard of morality obtaining is an ad
vantage. Her argument was listened to with
close attention by" a crowded chamber, and on
division the amendment was carried. Lady
Astor has been the means of setting woman
that much nea-er to an equality with man in
Great Britain, proving her election to the Par
liament was not a mistahe.

on the distinction between bolshevism and
Americanism. When a group of switchmen en
deavor to force an increase of wages by tying
up transportation they are animated by bol
shevism. When a landlord demands $125 per
month for, a $7$ flat, or a shoe merchant asks
Vl for a pair of $8 shoes, they are actuated by
good old-fashioned Americanism. It roust be
conceded that in onff respect the landlord and
merchant are free from the censure that at

refune to continue at work untir their claims

landlord and merchant invariably evince a dis
position to submit the matter to arbitration.

. GLORIFYING THE GOOD-FOR-NOTHING.
(Wm. Graham Sumner, "The Forsotten Man.")
Who is the Forgotten Man? He is the sim
ple, honest laborer, ready to earn his living by
productive work. .We pass him by because he
is independent, self-supporting, and asks no fa
vors. He does not appeal to the emotions or
excite the sentiments. He only wants to make
a contract and fulfill it with respect on both
sides and favor an neither side. He must get
his living out of the capital of the country. The
larger the capital is, the better living, he can
get. j Every particle of capital which is wasted
on the vicious, the Idle, and the shiftless is so
much taken from the capital available to re
ward the independent and productive laborer.
But we stand with our backs to the Independent
and productive laborer all "the time. We do not
remember him because he makes no clamor;
but I appeal to you whethjer. he is not the man
who ought to be remembered first of all, rfnd
whether, on any sound social theory, we bught
not to protect him against the burdens of the
good-for-nothing. In these last years I have
read hundreds of articles and heard scores of
sermons and speeches, which were really glorifi
cations of the good-for-nothing, as if these were
the charge of society, recommended by right
reason to its care and protection. We are ad
dressed all the time as if those who are respecta
ble were to blame because some are not so, and
as if there were an obligation on the part of
those who have done their duty towards those
who have not done their duty. Every man is
bound to take care of himself and his fajnlly
and to do his share in the work of society. It is
totally false that one who has done so is bound
to bear the care and charge of those who are
wretched because theyj have not done so. The'
silly popular notion is that the beggars live at
the expense of the rich, but the truth is that
those who eat and produce not live at the ex
pense of those who labor and produce.

Wesley, not 'content with found

medical book in which he extolled
Bishop Berkley's tar water for
scores of ills. I am sure that thou
sands of people who took this tar
water got well just as they would
have had they not taken tar water.
I am equally sure they were honest
in thinking tar water etired them.

Omaha, April 15. To the Editor
of The Bee: I am glad to see Mr.
F. A. Stroup agltatinr our old hobby
again relating to utilising the latent
power that is going to waste 'on ac
count of the negligence of capitalists
and short-sightedness of our state of

is not a cupful In comparison to the

the enormous benefit that could be
derived from Mr. Stroup's proposi

seems that this matter is sidetracked
