Dynamite Too Easy to Get.
Los Angeles, whore two years ago
dynamlto figured In one of the most
appalling crimes of the age, hns had
apparently n miraculous cscapo from
another explosion tragedy. It was
not tho fault of tho maniac who on
terod police headquarters loaded
down with tho deadly explosivo that
lives and property were not blown to
atoms. Even the remarkable tact
fulness of tho polloo officers, with
out other unaccountable Interven
tion, at this distance, seems scarcely
adequate to avert disaster.
But tho point of general concern
Is this dynamlto nnd other high
explosives are too oasy to got. They
seem to be procurable somehow by
anyonn who wants them, whothor he
be' a maniac or a desperado careless
of his own and others' lives. Tho
explosive must bo put out of the
reach of reckless people. It should
not be obtalnablo at all except for
legitimate purposes by persons of
known character- Not t6 restrict Its
salo nnd use by law In to make It
a menace to noddy. In tho right
eous outcry against "gun-totlng," an
offectlvo protest should also go out
against the Indiscriminate sale,
transportation and use of these more
dangerous Instruments of outlawry.

service reform and retaining tho ground
that has already been gained by the
Taft and other administrations.

OMAHA, Nov. 20, To the Editor of The
See: Every effort that makes for musical
naivete and for idealism of the heart
brings a period of true musical creation
nearer to our land. Mr. and Mrs. Thomas
Kelly's chinning folk song recital last
night had a mission whlen only requires
understanding to be loved. Does anyone
minx u an easy matter to arrange a
true folk song recital? In fact, the folk
song demands an unusual degree of musi
cal Inwardness. And as for the musical
mission of the folk song, I would range
that with the literary mission of a peo
ple's simplest ereatlons, the nursery
rhymes, the ballads, the Idiomatic prov
erbs, the elementary expressions of a
people's soul. No ona is liable to feel
deeply a language, and master it from
within, who has passed up Its kinder
garten stage. The great writers were
first nourished by the mother's milk ot
their language. The folk song has just

ot the foreign born and their Immediate
descendants you have a musical center?
Now. why? Because those people feel th.
simple folk song. That disposes them to

education permits the grasping of more
complicated musical form.
Yes, Mr. Kelly, you are on the right

cities, denying rbe right ot the street car
company to collect fares until seats were
provided, our poverty-stricken street car
