A THOUGHT FOR TODAY Man-like is it to fall into sin, Friend-like is it to dwell therein; Child-like is it for sin to grieve, God-like is it all sin to leave. Fricdrich von Logan. There he some American housewives who could give the Irish valuable tips on home rule. "Will the length of hatpins be the subject of a platform of tho various parties in the next na tional campaign? The city council to be elected is the city coun cil that will give the people a chance to-vote on a sewer bond issue. Vesuvius has begun to spout fire again. Pos sibly it is getting ready to welcome Former President Roosevelt with real fire works. ,A woman with nothing human to love, says a rural philosopher, might as well bo a man in the moonlight with two charming girls. !A. news dispatch says a man has eloped with his mother-in-law. Will ho now have to contend with biscuits such as daughter used to make? The Douglas International-American is giv ing "hints on how to steal." It is to be hoped that its readers will prove averse to taking hints. The man with a teles'eppe who cannot find a pomot in these davs needs not an eye examina tion but merely a suggestion to geep abreast of the times. British courts hold South Dakota divorces invalid. Well, what of it! Anybody who is anybody goes to Reno, Nov., for such things now-a-days. "Let the nation have a share in Alaska's riches," suggests the April Hampton. What? And heartlessly squeeze out Messrs. Morgan and Guggenheim. Why do nice old ladies affect or wear the latest fads in braids. and rats and foundations? asks a critic. For tho same reason, perhaps, that nice young ladies do. An Omaha Methodist pastor recommends that all users of slang be quarantined as though af flicted with contagious disease. It would be an easier job to segregate the diction purists Cleaning day is approaching and there are some parts of tho city that need it bad. One cleaning day per year may do some backyards hut there are many that need a cleaning three or four times a week. SELECT GOOD MEN The voters in school district No. 1 should ex ercise great care in the selection of a member to succeed J. S. Miles on the board of trustees. Tn school affairs, as in the administration of matters municipal, we are on the eve of con siderable necessary expansion, and men of good judgment and business sense should be named to fill the places. It will he the duty of the new school board to pass on the record of Professor Smith, whose term of office will terminate at the close of the -present school year. If they find that tho guid ing hand has been faulty to a degree that has jeopardized the best interests of the schools and the pupils for whom they have boon maintained, then it will bo the duty of the board to select a successor who will give to the parent and pupil the service expected. Tf. on the contrarv, it is discovered that Mr. Smith's administration has been all that could be rensonablv expected, per sonal feeling and prejudice should be eliminated and the endorsement freely made. We speak of this, however, simplv as a prospective inci dent in the early life of the new board. Tt should not be made an issue in the campaign soon to be on in the selection of a successor to Mr. Miles. The duty of the people at this time is to select and then elect a man fully qualified for this im portant position; a man who will weigh ques tions on the scale of merit, and who will render his decisions unbiased and wholly in the inter est of the taxpayers and the youth of the city. A high school building is ono of the present necessities. The people are ready to entertain a proposition born of the wisdom of the school board and are willing to give liberally of their money to supply the demands in this direction. Persons familiar with conditions and those who have given the matter study assert that $."50,000 will be ample for the high school necessities of the city for the present and for a number of years to come. It is estimated that this amount of money will buy a lot, erect a suitable building and supply the necessary equippage. Tn treat ing this question the hoard should eliminate from consideration the increased tax burden; an increase of tax is to be expected. Tho necessi ties of tho city should be the sole consideration. When the taxpayers are confronted with the real facts they will endorse the action of the board and give to it the support required to carry to a successful issue the building of a high school. Messrs. P. P. Greer and Robert Pinyan have been mentioned in connection with tho office of school trustee. Neither of these gentlemen is, in the broad sense of the word, a candidate for the position. As a matter of fact neither has given a decisive answer to the appeals of their friends, but it is a safe venture to say that either would accept if the people are insistent. With two men so well equipped for the place the people are certainly free from jeopardy and about all that remains is to decide upon one or tho other to make the sacrifice, and the con troversv will be at an end. FRAMING A NEW ISSUE The English house of lords may reform itself without waiting to be abolished. The resuU of the recent elections was so indefinite as to give it another lease of life. It evidently will try to take advantage of this to make itself permanent. At this time no king would be justified in cre ating 200 or 300 peers to give the necessary ma jority in the lords to pass a measure taking from it all of its essential rights, leaving par liament in effect a one-house body. So far as the election shows, this is not what the English people want. But they do want a change, and it would be suicidal for tho lords to appeal again to the peo ple with the issue as it was and still is. So Lord Roseberry has proposed a trinity resolution which declares, first, that there should be a strong and efficient second chamber, with the ability and experience to take part in national legislation authoritatively. Second, that in the United Kingdom such a chamber can best be formed through a remodel ing or reconstitution of the house of lords. Third, that 'such a change or transformation should be based on merit rather than or primo geniture, which is to say, by election or some other form of choice, but that every peer should not be of right a member as an incident of birth. This will be subnect to discussion by the lords as a statement of general principles or a policy along broad lines. The stronger opposition will probably lie in those peers, who seldom, save as driven in at time of emergency, take advantage of their present right of membership; and m those who are least able and least capable, and who regard their membership much as they do any other henditary right which has fallen into disuse, but still exists. ' But if the lords are wise and adopt this state ment, it will then be followed by a bill putting it in practical form and calling for a body, much like our senate, chosen by election, or otherwise, from the whole body of the peers. If the com mons refuse this, it will still form a new issue, and one with which the.lords will have a far bet ter chance of success in case of appeal to a pop ular vote. IT IS RIGHT, THOUGH Friends and supporters of Andre Maurel and T. W. Frey, erstwhile candidates in their re spective wards for the office of aldermen, are loud in their complaints against the action of the city council in turning down the nomination papers of these gentlemen and eliminating them as contestants at the primaries to be held on April 2.'?. The disposition of these cases was not at the pleasure of the members of the city council. Their action is guided and directed by the new primary law, which is quite plain and compre hensive on this particular point and should have been readily understood. That the candidates in question secured an excessive number of sig natures to their nomination petitions is ad vanced as evidence of their popularity and Uie wishes of the people in their respective voting precincts. All of which may and may not be true. There was great wisdom displayed, how ever, when the legislators placed a maximum and minimum percentage of signatures to be se cured and estopped voters from signing the pa pers of only one candidate for a named office. It makes it impossible, first, for the really dis tasteful party candidate to participate as a con- testant in the primaries by fixing a certain per centage of the vote to secure a certification on the plenary ticket, and the maximum percent age is not so great that the field can be monop olized by two or three candidates to the exclu sion of others who might desire to enter the contest. Jt was Globe's first venture under the new primary law and the mistakes that have been made were not wholly unexpected, now over, if the people in the home wards of Messrs. Frey and Maurel are anxious that these gentle men represent them, it will be an easy matter to petition their names on the general election ticket, as independent candidates, under the old law, a provision wisely made in the new primary law. HAIL TO THE CHIEF Rosy with health, brimful of energy, weary of the wilderness and homesick for civilization, Colonel Roosevelt has emerged from the jungle and was met by the advance guards of that civ ilization which he craved after a surfeit of the joys of barbarian wilds. The world is glad indeed to see you safely out of the jungle, Colonel. One section of it, a very large and important section, bounded on the north by the Dominion of Canada, on the south by the republic of Mexico, on the west by Japan and on the east by Manhattan island, is particu larly dee-lighted that you have been able to give the laugh to those absurd men of feeble under standing who said you would die in the jungle of the sleeping sickness. You are now whirling across the face of Eu rope, dazzling the eyes and stunning the con sciousness of an effete civilization. Soon you will be landing upon the soil that gave you birth and opportunity and the priceless privilege of service to humanity. Your welcome will be warm, warmer than any welcome ever given to any human being by the greatest people on earth. These are your people, and you are their well-beloved.' You will find hunting good in America, too, Colonel. Here you may hunt again in its native lair the beast of Special Privilege, with the cun ning of the fox, the reckless courage of the rouge elephant, the greediness of the hog, and the remorselessness of the hyena. The'hunting in America is very good, Colonel. More power to you. POINTED PARAGRAPHS How we blow when we begin to put on airs ! Lend a man money and he will return for more. And many a fair woman has taken a" man by storm. Do not seek in others what you conceal in yourself. People with the telephone habit make a busy man tired. You can't please yourself and your neighbors simultaneously. It's a case of long suffering when a giraffe has a sore throat. Ever know a sneak thief to steal into a house and take a bath? A politician isn't necessarily straight because he refuses to unbend. It isn't always those with weak eyes who look on the dark side of life. A woman isn't invariably as pretty as a pic ture even if she is painted. Some men would rather make a dishonest quarter than earn an honest dollar. It isn't the tears a woman sheds in public that wear furrows in her complexion. A woman can generate as much interest in n church social as a man can in a prize fight. The after effect is the worst thing about get ting drunk likewise, also, about getting mar ried. A round hole in the center of a compound mix ture of dyspepsia is but another name for a doughnut. A girl likes to have some one to make her blush, just to convince people that her complex ion is the real thing. The average woman can bluff almost any man, but when it comes to bluffing some other woman well, that's another story. And when a young widow means business it is up to the wise bachelor to trek for tho tall timber. The average man insists that he wouldn't do anything mean, yet there is a lot of petty meanness in the world. If we ever publish a dictionary, we will define mollycoddle as a man whose every act meets with approval of his wife's mother. Tf a married woman is looking for trouble all she has to do is to read extracts to her husband from the letters he wrote her during their courtship. The man who attempts to grow fuzz, on his bald pate hasn't any cause to lord it over his wife just because she spends a few 'dollars for a hair switch.

"That sort of spirits, my son, that make you see blue monkeys and pink elephants." "Since her husband has made a fortune she doesn't seem to bo the same woman she was." "I know it. She always says 'has gotten' now." "I suppose some of your public addresses are matters of inspiration. " "Not so much matters of inspiration," re plied Senator Sorphum, "as of respiration." "The paper states that eggs have gone up $2 a carat." "A carat?" "Oh, pshaw! I read it wrong. It's $2 a crate." Damocles saw the sword suspended bv a hair "Lucky for me somebody wasn't bald," he cried. Herewith he spoke lightly of other things. "I argued with that fool Dauber", till 3 o'clock tliis morning about the old masters. What an ass that fellow is to argue like that." 1 ' Yes ; a perfect idiot!" Artist (to tentative customer) Now, I'll be quite frank with you. I refused $1,000 for it from an American, because I don't want it to go out of France, but I'll let you have it for $10.

"That's where he is strong. He has to think at least twice before he says anything." Mr. Talkalot All men are born equal, Uncle Eph, but the trouble is they don't stay that way. Uncle Eph Da's right, suh, da's right. Some of 'em gits to be a pow'ful sight equaler dan de odders. "Yes, T was fined $500 for putting coloring matter in artificial butter." "Well, didn't you deserve it?" "Perhaps. But what made me mad was that the nudge who imposed the fine had dyed whisk ers.' "Do you subscribe for a woman's magazine for your wife?" asks the man with the mono gram on his vest. "No, sir," stoutly replies the man with the square chin. "And my wife doesn't buy my socks for me, either." Nater What has become of Emma Tynenot tor since she married? Tellers Why, she and her husband have gone to light housekeeping somewhere in Arizona.

"And did you get the job, Sam?" " I sure did, boss." "What kind of work did you procure, Sam?" "Some washing for m' wife!" "John John," whis'pored Mrs. Gidgely, nudging her husband. "What is it?" he sleepily asked. "There's a burglar in the house." "What do you want me to do get up and run the risk of being killed?" "No ; but if you find in the morning that some body has gone through your pockets, don't blame me." SPOTLESS AS A JUDGE should be, correct as any of his decisions.
