The current Issue of Collier's contains- an article by Andrew Carnegie on "The Library Gift Business," to gether with a statement purporting, to be the Bret accurate list of Mr. Car neglu'a girts. The tabular exhibit shows aggregate donations of J51.59G, 903 for the erecting of 1,547 library buildings and 311 branch library buildings. The distribution of the library gifts within the United States Is summarized by states, with the names of the beneficiary cities and towna within each state. The Nebraska list Is as follows: Twenty-on libraries $31S,00 Alma, Albion. Auburn ReatiJc" De Witt, Falrhury, Fremont. Grand Island, Hastings. Havelock. Iloldrege, Kearney, Lincoln (?). MeCook. Neltgh. Norfolk, raTtirt City, South Omaha, Superior, Tecumseh. Making the division, this gives an average of a little more than $15,000 contributed by Mr. Carnegie to each of the cities enumerated. It is well known that the amounts given to Beatrice, Lincoln and South Omaha considerably exceed the averago, to that most of the others must counter balance by being below the average. Do tho people of any of these cities feel that they have been humiliated by accepting tainted money or pauper Ued by letting Mr. Carnegie help them house tbelr libraries properly? We doubt It. Yet whether or not tho donation of a library Is regarded as the most effective way of distributing wealth, one feature which Mr. Car negie emphasises must strike straight home. He insists that what he Is. do ing 1b to help the individual and the community to help themselves that the library gives nothing for nothing. The condition of the gift is that the library bo supported by taxation. "It is owned by the communityX It is no gift to the poorer classes. They help contribute their mito. It Is the library of the people and within its walls the poorest citizen has all tho rights of the mayor." This principle of Mr. Carnegie'8 li brary gifts ought to be kept fn view in all similar undertakings designed to provide charitable or educational insti tutions for a community. It must al ways be remembered that the erection of a building is only providing the plant and that the cost of maintenance and operation is a steady and per petual obligation. The foolishness of giving useless gifts It exceeded only by the foolishness of accepting gifts whose burdens outweigh the benefits. Pressing the Food limit. In hla address at Seattle James J. Hill pointed out that the exportable surplus of wheat had decreased from 120,000,000 to 20,000,000 bushels, with the time In prospect when there would be no surplus unless production should be Increased. '". The limits of food production have been repeatedly foreshadowed and sys tematic efforts have been made to in crease both the acreage and the yield per acre. One feature usually over looked, however. Is that the consump tion of wheat per capita has Increased, leading Inevitably to the conclusion that the standard of living is higher and that there are by no means so many underfed people as In years past. Another question connected with food supply which has attracted little attention has ft double significance. It Is the problem of getting more suste nance out of the production than we now bave. There is entirely too much food waste In American home life. It causes an excessive demand for food stuffs and Increases the cost of living without returning any equivalent. It was not so long ago that the "book farmer," as the agricultural school professor was called, was laughed at. Today hit advice la sought by every progressive tiller of the soil. The schools of domestic science have the same work to do In their field and are just beginning to be appreciated. The woman who cooks "Just aa mother used to do" may learn that there are ways of getting more nutrition out of food producta and of utilising what formerly went to waste. Indirect methods of increasing the food supply are at Important aa the direct, for they work a double econ oiny. ' Why Not Escape I The crueltlea perpetrated upon the Armenians for generations suggests the question why they do not leave the land where there Is nothing but misery lor them. They have lived there for centuries, persecuted first by one conqueror and then another and through it all have clung to the land of their fathers and preserved their national identity. They are not lack tng In either 'courage or shrewdness; In fact, In trade are more than a match for their neighbors. Yet they are not the only people who have similarly suffered and have faced their destiny in the same way. Weighting poverty, inability to see a brighter future elsewhere and In born human Inertia each play a part exert an influence to keep the Ar menians In Armenia, but the great impelling siutlment is attachment for the land which has been their home. This sentiment Is even more charac teristic of the oriental than of west era races and few ever completely alienate themselves from, the home country. Compared with our ideals lite In those lands la hard and unat tractive, yet those who wander con stantly look forward to return. The Chinaman and others Impose upon the living the duty of returning the ashes of the dead for burial In their native land. The oriental's attachment for his native land is beyond the compre hension of the occidental. The Armenian it an oriental and possesses In the highest degree this characteristic ' of inertia. ' Few have emigrated, but the mnjorlty remain and face their fate, and unless the Turk la restrained will continue In the land until the race is exterminated or liberated.. Their refusal to emigrate or assimilate with other peoples stimu lates the persecutions which have decimated their number, but their Ideals, remain unchanged. , FITNESS A recent number of the Engineering News calls attention to an Incident which Illustrates tho .too prevalent popular failure to appreciate what con stitutes fitness to perform duties re quiring special skill and professional attainments. Reference Is made to the offer to Admiral Robley D. Evans of'a position at the head of tho engi neers In charge of construction work n tho San Pedro harbor. The report cited continues: The offer was made by Mayor Alexander, with the understanding that if Admiral Evans consented to make Los A nudes his home steps would bo taken Immediately after, consolidation for Ihe creation of the position. When the offer was made It waa thought that the wide, experience of the famous naval hero from his trips to the harbors of the world would be of Immenso value In the work of building up the great harbor of the future of southern Cali fornia. Without questioning at all Admiral Evans' ability as a naval officer, or his reputation as a naval hero, the ques tion Is asked why either of these dis tinctions qualify him to assume re sponsibility for a great civil englneer- ng work and suggests that the Item would be no more ridiculous If It read: Mr. Isham Randolph, well known to the public, and to the engineering profession for his long service as chief engineer of the Chicago drainage canal, as well as for his achievements as a civil engineer In other Important works, has been selected to be admiral of the Atlantic squadron of the United States navy. It Is thought that the wide experience of this famous engi neer In dealing with apparatus for the restraint of water will be ot Immense value n the work of controlling vessels which float In this element. While Indulging this criticism. En gineering News adds by way of tribute to Admiral 1 Evans' good common sense: In fairness to Admiral Evans, It should be said that ; i did not accept the offer of the civil engineering position. He recos- nlzed, doubtless, that It was as absurd to place him in charge of an Important civil engineering work as It would have been to make him consulting physician to a hospi tal or chief legal adviser to the Sugar Trust AH of this goes to re-enforce what The Boe has said time and again about putting square pegs in round holes. Because a man may be fairly success ful in one line of activity gives no as surance that he will answer the re quirements of any position just be cause It Is in the public service, and more particularly ot positions that call for Experience and technical knowU edge possessed only by specialists. Uniform Car Service. The Interstate Commerce commis sion will perform a service of great value to both shippers and railroads if it succeeds In bringing about a uni form system of car service. At pres ent each railroad syBtem has its own methods with which shippers on other lines are not necessarily familiar and which are often so at variance with these of connecting lines as to cause needless delays. When traffic Is nor mal or below no serious harm results, but at floodtlde, as in . 1907, this lack of uniformity produces costly compli cations. Conflicting state lawt are an In superable barrier to uniformity In many Instances and lack of co-opera tion by the roads In others. Business demands, however, are so Insistent that the obstacles must sooner or later be removed. Railroads cannot keep sufflolent equipment to meet promptly all extraordinary emergencies, but a harmonious system would make It pos sible to utilize equipment to ita full capacity and greatly reduce the Incon venience ot traffic crushes. Disagreeing railroad managers and conflicting state laws point to eventual federal regulation ot car service. The general government Is the only power broad enough to cover all fields and all conditions. Railroad managers themselves realize this and generally favor federal control, which originally they fought bitterly. They do not rel Ish control now more than before, but they see that It la unavoidable and naturally prefer something .uniform and definite to something indefinite and conflicting. The traffic problems are growing larger and methods which sufficed yesterday are Inadequate to day. Uniform methods In all trans portation are an essen.iul and cannot be obtained without lodging authority in one place to prescribe and enforce them. Schooling: for Diplomats. For years the consular and diplo matic service of the' United Statea waa admittedly the poorest of all the great nations. Political backing largely die tated the appointments. A great step forward waa taken by the Roosevelt administration and congress strength ened the executive order by enacting the consular reform bill. Under this law and the executive action the con sular service is becoming one of the most efficient departments of the fed eral governnion and ita value will In crease with the gradual weeding out of Incompetents left from the old regime. The consular service law, however, did not include the diplomatic service and ambassadors, ministers and offl I clala under them continue to be tub- Ject to the old methods ot appoint ment. With the approval of the presi dent. Secretary Knox Is said to be or ganizing a school of diplomacy to remedy some of the difficulties. This school will be under the charge of men having long experience in the diplo matic service and all appointees below the grade of minister will have to take a course of Instruction before assign ment to their posts. Foffowing up the merit Idea, all promotions In the subordinate service will be under sim ilar regulations. The large number who failed to pass consular examinations has brought out forcibly the poor quality of material seeking appointments and prompted this action to be taken In the diplomatic branch In advance of legislation. There are no.tr seventeen newly appointed vacancies and these will provide tne first pupils for the school. The candidates will be in structed In the routine duties of their office and listen to loctures by experi enced diplomats, which will equip them fairly well for their duties. By making efficiency a fixed policy of his administration and applying It to the diplomatic service Mr. Taft is bound to Improve the standard of American representation abroad. Sale of municipal Securities. The tales of municipal bonds In 1908 reached the enormous total of $313,797,649, as against $250,754,946 in 1904, the next highest record in the history of the country. The north Atlantic group of cities floated $176,- 065,777 and the north central section, in which Nebraoka is placed, comes next with $65,242,723. The southern section Is far behind the others.' The purposes for which the Be bonds were lesued were as follows: Grand total $313,797,549 Refunding 16.7S4.S40 Net additional..., 277,012,709 Water 60,087.709 Urldgcs, streets, etc 75,756,730 Sewers 26. 573,296 Schools 46,832,101 Buildings '. 27.684,9ti5 Parks 11.7S6.647 Light and gas :. 1,657,989 Funding and Improvement.. 26,S2,965 Miscellaneous 30,350,307 It is a fair presumption that the pro portion of refunding and funding or floating debts will not vary much from other years and In this view Is a re liable Index of the amount of munici pal Improvements for the year. . How much of the large sum under the head of water Is for new work and how much for the purchase of existing plants does not appear, but New York City is spending millions on new con struction and the probabilities are that no large amount was used for pur chasing private plants. The most notable conclusion to be drawn from the exhibit Is that Ameri can cities are not only growing, but that they are expending millions to make city life more healthful and pleasant. , Practically all this vast sum went for the things which directly minister to these wants. We are con tinually reminded that European cities are far ahead of us, but with such a tremendous rate of expenditure it can not be long until American cities will compare favorably with any in the world In meeting these demands of urban comfort. Broader View of the South. If the people of the north imagine they alone have learned to take a more liberal view of the civil war they are mistaken. Memorial day in the south gave a good illustration of this. There are many thousands of northern sol diers buried In southern cemeteries and on practically every one of them the people of the south strewed the graves with flowert. In many In stances the veterans who wore the gray Joined with the few union boI diers In the southern communities In paying tribute to their dead. The south. It Is true, holds fast to Its Ideals, but It Is a sentiment of com radeship rather than an Insistence that the victory should have been theirs. Whatever difference of opinion there waa aa to the Issuea of the-war, there are no two opinions north or south as to the mutual benefits of preserving the union. A charity which is broad enough to pay tribute to a fallen op ponent must be broad enough to bridge the gap between the living. The south was the greater sufferer from the war, and It la not atrange, therefore, that bitterness should rankle longer there. The episodes of Memorial day in the south afford occasion for congratula tion that it has not been left for future generations to bring about this under standing, but that some of the par ticipants in the conflict have been spared to promote It. We have received invitations to the graduation exercises of quite a number of the great universities and colleges throughout the country and, among others, one handsomely engraved from Milton college requesting the honor of our presence for its commencement at 10 o'clock on Thursday, June 17, 1909. with this Inscription in the lower left hand cdrner: Address by Hon. David Eugene Thompson, Ambassador Extraordinary and Minister ' Plenipotentiary of the United States to Mexico. We will be on the qui vive until a week from next Thursday to learu what is about to happen at Milton, Wis. Chronicling the death of the late Dr. Theodore Barth, Nie of Germany'r most distinguished Journalists, it is re called that he spent some time In 1S96 traveling with Mr. Bryan la order to study political conditions and election methods In the United States. Dr. Barth, however, refused to be carried away by the free silver frenzy and never let his personal admiration for Mr. Bryan go to the extent ot accept ing his financial fallacies. Dr. Barth visited In Omaha and at the time ex pressed particular ploaxure at meeting here so many cultured people of Ger man birth or descent. Congressman Champ Clark Insists that the administration talk of econ omy Is all "flubdub." That Is proba bly the Missouri way of saying that the minority proposes to spend Just at much money as ever it the majority will shoulder the responsibility. The Florida legislator who com plained about negroes bolng permitted to wear uniforms would probably not be so captious in time of war. No doubt he would Just as soon see a negro on the firing line as to be ex posed to a bullet himself. Senator Tillman has broken out again. He objected to the vice presi dent telling him to take his seat be cause he was out of order, but he had been quiescent for so long that he was unable to get up full steam on short notice. One eastern railroad shows a loaded car movement of 297,634 cars for the month of May, which is the largest In Its history except May, 1907. That looks as though tho prosperity path finder car had blazed out the way. A Fort Dodge man ent $35 for a marriage bureau bride and then com plained because she failed to put In an appearance. Perhaps the price went up and his margin was wiped out. Braced for tho Onrush. Baltimore American. The commencement season, with Its an nual flood of graduating oratory.

Rude shocks of fate have -their compen sations. One of A.

The untrained will rock the matrimonial boat, aa heretofore. The blind senator of Oklahoma handed Washington papers a package they do not appreciate. He had read In the aenate a portion of one, in order that It might be 'inserted In the Congressional Record" and get the benefit of an extensive circu lation. A delightful sample of pictorial, descrip tive and typographic art la the Burlington passenger department pamphlet on "Scenic Colorado." The pamphlet Is expected to draw tourists toward scenic wonders ot the Rockies and persuade vacationists to take the first train headed for the uplands. The opposite effect is possible. The book let tells so much and so vividly, by word and picture, that the rest seeker may peruse It leisurely at home and - feel like one who haa viewed the scenery on the spot,. minus the leg wear and the draft on the purse. SECULAR SHOTS AT THE PULPIT. St. Louis Globe-Democrat: The Presby terians at Denver showed excellent senao in voting down a proposition putting under the church ban any Presbyterian judge who will officially sign a license for the sale of liquor. It Is remarkable to what extremi ties fanaticism can go. When it urges sworn officers to commit perjury it la nearlng the limit. Chicago Record-Herald: An Indiana preacher gives It as his opinion that girls like to dance only because they can thus get Ihemselvea hugged. He surely la mis taken. Moat girls could get themselves hugged by merely stepping behind the door, and it Is generally understood that hugging In such a place la much more satisfactory to both parties than out In the middle of a lighted ball room. Baltimore American: Just what effect the position taken by the Presbyterians will have may notbe aald, but as the agt tatlon against the weed is not new. It Is to be feared that the set habits of the present generation ot smokers will not be influenced. Doubtless some fathers, fond of a smoke themselves, will be roused to greater diligence In guarding their progeny from following lu their footsteps. This would be a good thing, aa smokTng la an expensive and. It must be confessed, an unnecessary habit. It cannot be said, how ever, that the church and the weed are in hostile camps so long aa the smokers' churches exist. SERMONS BOILED DOWN. All the stiffness In a man's neck la taken out of his back. Piety adopted because it pays costs more than It la worth. It la always safe to Idealise the real If you realise tho Ideal. A life is holy In the measure that it makes Uvea really happy. Keaources for tomorrow depend on re serves made today. The best proof of a great religion Is lu use on small occasions. The only way to digest a god sermon is to do what It suggests. The pe&slmist always puts hla beat corns forward In a irowd. Soma folks try to get rid of a man's faults by advertising them. You never can express the factor of man tn terms of the dust alone.
