'WV MYZ 1W . V r. k ' FRIENDS PUSH WAREHOUSE BILL AVILL HELP SOLVE PROBLEM OF HIGH COST OF LIVING. AIMED AT GRAIN GAMBLERS Board of Trade Manipulators Are the Only Ones Opposed to I Measure. Lincoln. Tho lmperatlvo need o ' making fcolectlon of sifting commit tees In both tho houso and tho senato in tho near future In order that tho overcrowded general fllo and list of bills Bttll confronting the standing committees may be relieved, has call ed t'le attention of tho legislators to the 'fact that moro than ordinary care must ho taken In perpetuating thoso hills which have real merit and thoso which can easily he stifled without any great effect holng felt, s Outside some of tho measures which are of vast Interest to tho business side of the administration of tho state's affairs thoro 1b no hill at the present time which Is of moro real worth to the people of the state than tho public warehouse bill now In tho senate committee. Tho bill has re ceived glowing Indorsement at tho hands of hundreds of' producers of tho state and likowise a large number of consumers who see in its operation one of the loads to solution of tho problem of the excessive cost of liv ing. The bill. aB explained by Its author, Senator McParland of Douglas county, is modeled after the best parts of sim ilar laws In other states where tho principle has been worked out to tho satisfaction of farmers and townsmen alike. It is aimed at board of trade manipulators who play the labor and product of western farms on their gi gantic chess board with little thought of tho effect on the people who raise and who consume the grain. Grain gamblers of every sort are hit by the measure, which virtually provides the farmer with the ways and means whereby he may obtain storage for his grain and where it can bo held until tho market warrants its sale. Elimination of the gambling element on tho sale of farm products has been a goal long sought by those most vi tally Interested in farm marketing, and not until the public warehouse idea became workable was there -a method provided whereby this could be accom plished. ' The public warehouse plan must prevail in Nebraska some day. Legis lators who are supporting the move ment to make it a part of the present session's accomplishments and who Intend to battle vigorously for its passage say that dollar and cent sav ings to the people of the state during the coming two years will more than total to an amount equal to the appro priations provided for in some of the leading state business bills now pond ing. Intenslvo farming, made practicable in the minds of Nebraska farmers through its successful operation in other countries, is no more important than intensive marketing. Those who have faith in the public warehouse Idea assume tho position that only a combination of tho two can bring to Nebraska farmers tho utmost returns for their labor. "What does it profit a man to ralBO big crops and then loso money in tho marketing thereof?" they argue and tho answer Is so plain that It permits of no contradiction. Bills Passed by the Senate. Tho following bills have been passed by the state senate: Senate Pile No. 320, by Kghl of Wayno Changes the course of state normal schools to bo tho equivalent of two years In college.

PETS FOR THE GKttWING BOY Rabbits, Pigeons and Especially Ban. tam Chickens Are Dear to Heart of Developing Lad. (By rnOF. JOHN WILLAHD BOLTn.) Farming might bo defined aB tho art of producing vnlunblo crops from tho soil and disposing of theso soil products In a profltablo manner. This definition is lnmo, academically, but It carries our Idea. Tho backyard farmer must Include a great many othor factors In. his op orations, aB tho pocuninry profits he derives nro of much loss Importance thnn tho beautifying of his surround lngs and of tho lives of his entlro fam ily. No intelligent person can live amid beautiful ennobling scenes with out bolng Influenced for tho better, oven though It bo unconsciously.

Tho adult mind which hnB been denied helpful, InfluonccB may bocomo imper vious to thorn In time, but tho hopo of tho race llos In his chlldrun. Tho child's mind Is n ferttlo gar don, which cannot produco its own flowers nnd fruit, but which responds readily to tho trentment it rocelvcs, and benrs fruit or ovll woods accord ing to what wo plant thoreln and how It Is cultivated. Ono of tho most beautiful and h6po ful things about the wholo scheme of creation Is, to our mind, tho fact that overy normal child 1b born squaro with tho world. Ho inherits neither his parents bodily or mental diseases. But from tho Instant ho first cries, his futuro dependB almost absolutely upon the enro ho receives. Parents of children hnvo wonderful opportunity to hotter themselves and the ontlro world by making their own children hotter thnn their parents, physically and mentally. This is tho only way wo havo of repaying to our pnrontB tholr sufferings and depriva tions in bringing ua to manhood and womanhood'. There comeB a tlmo In overy boy's liro whon tho childish amusements no longer BUfllco. nnd ho Boeks Interests out of doors. This Is tho tlmo when tho mother coasos to havo an oyo on his every movomont nnd ho begliiB to associate with othor boys of his own ago, but of totally different bringing up, In many cases.
