Nebraska'! Scmi-Centennlnl. The proper celebration of tho flf-' tieth year of statehood for Nebraska, j which occurs III tho winter of 1917,1 Is nl randy a subject for discussion, tho most insistent suggostlon being that we should utlllzo tho occasion to hold an exposition of state resources. Tho Boo agrees that the semi centennial should bo commemorated in a manner befitting its importance, and that tho obsorvanco should in clude features to make it statewide. Whether an exposition, such as is proposed, should bo a part of the celebration, however, wo aro not so cortaln. Not that Nebraska could not get togotiier a creditable oxhlblt of its own resources, but tho San Francisco exposition and tho Han Diego exposition will Interveno, with ptobably others on tho calendar, which may produce a surfeit of this sort of thing. Two years ago Mexico celebrated Its centennial anniversary by pagean try and parades, but moro chiefly by erecting and dedicating historical monumonts, new school buildings and charitable institutions on moro pormanont and useful Investments of their money. Porhaps Mexico has set us an example worth following. Church Awakening. Statistics employed in the nation wide church extension campaign in dicate that the church sends out 92 per cent of the associate charity workers now engaged in this coun try, 88 per cont of the social- set tlement workers and 71 per cent of general social workors, Thus it claims distinction as the loader In the moral reforms nnd uplift move ments, of tho day. It does not claim that all thoso enterprises aro car ried on In the name of tho ohurch, as, of courso, thoy are not. In oplte of this general awakening to largo responsibilities on tho part of tho church, census statistics fur ther show that tho population of tho Protestant churches Increased only 1V4 por cent In tho decode from 1000 to 1910. This fact tho church mon fully reallza and view with much concern. They aro exerting this groat effort, which takes tho form of varied social uplift movements, becaitBo thoy rcallzo it und arc determined to cbango results. Undoubtedly tho church bus folt Its oharo of tho general effect of tho pro-commercialism of tho ago, when men aro diverted from Its pews by tho -influx of material thing. But tlio church must face tho condition ' i , . ... 'tirpukht about ., nnd appreciate tho 'necessity, howovor lamentable It jmay be, of competing with worldly attractions nvi.rHv-.iunB tor men.

" , ' , The Legislative Bill (Ftfqfory. One consequence of tho'nddptlon of ono of tho amondmontH Jijst ongrnftod on tno Nobraska constitution will be to cut short by half thV) tlrUO for tho Introduction of logldWUvo hills." Hith erto mombors have peon! privileged to prcsont measures for forty full IocIb- latlve-dayB, but from now on they will hnvo to terminate .this . part of their activity In twonty dayn. It has boon tho custom.' nfter tho grind of bills was under hoauwuy, to raako comparisons by'blll mimbcru to. soo whothor houflo or senate wore oxceoding, as It werp,"(ho Bpood limit recorded by preceding legislatures at Corresponding periods," arid tho um ber of bills Introduced. waa tho .com parative. measure of value, if reduc-. lng tho tltno limit will halvo tho num ber of bills, even without' affecting their quality, it would hardly bo pro claimed an uumtxud evil, it Is a rea sonable expectation, however, that the bill factory will work overtime for twenty days, so that thero may bo no such disproportion as 'would other wise follow, Salesmanship, Tho popular emphasis being laid upon scientific salesmanship as n pro requisite to mercantile success Is np predated by business firms perhaps for soltlsh roasons, nnd yet the bene fits aro available to tho employe alert to ombraco them. Tho scientific salesman will sharo all advantages with hla employer. Merchants are sure to increase inBtead. of diminish their intorost and efforts along this line, for tho pnrposo is most apropos. One Of the best assets nnd adver tisements a business house can ha'yo Ib a satisfied customer. Next, then, are tho salesmen who work for satis faction among tholr purchasers. Therefore, It would seem that tho clerk who alms at selling a man what ho wants more than inducing him to buy something ho does not want is In the long run the valuable elork and the scientific salesman. For tho sake of making a big snlo many a clerk thinks ho has scored a triumph If ho run pack a customer with a lot of goods he neither needed nor de sired and will later regret buying. That Is business, It is said. Events may show It to be very poor business, though.

The Abomination of Falsehood. Solomon named six things the Lord hated and a seventh, which also was an abomination unto Him: A false witness that speaketh ilea and he thai noweth discord among brethren. Tho Lord, Himself, had established a commandment against this pest in the law he gave Mosos at Sinai which thunders on down through the ages: Thou ahalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor. As hateful today as then as nbomlnnble, Confidence undermined, lovo and respect lost, friendship sun dered! How often aro theso tho re sults of tho slnous sin of art fill lying, of idle or petty gossip by him "that sowoth discord nmong brethren." Tho civil law. punishes certain forms of falso witness libel, slander, per jury, and if it Inflicted a penalty for this deliberate mischlcf-maklng lying it would not bo far wrong. This is ono of tho commonest evils of tho day, this habit of speaking ill of a fellowman. It 4s difficult to keep on speaking ill without speak ing falsely, and if nt first a moral scruple restrains, the outright lie habit soon wears away all con scientious veneering and sears tho mind with a callous scar that docs not feel tho prick of self-incrimination, thd monitor of an accusing con fidence. That stage reached, the rest of tho way ls all down hill. A Pernicious Practice. A wise enforcement of the Juvenile court rulo ngnlnst boys nnd young mon loafing on street corners at night should produce good results. Such a regulation Is badly needed In parts of tho city, whoro youths congregate and mako themselves obnoxious to pnssors-by, particularly girls and women. This practico should bo stopped and tho Juvenllo officers seem to bo the propor ones to stop It. Boys always have and always wl run tho stroots, lo nn extent at night, but in cities full of temptations thoy should not uso a llcensa to the detri ment of good behavior and other folks' poaco. It 1b to bo hopod this project of tho Juvenile court will bo carried into permanent practice until It really becomes effectual.

Several familiar olovatlons that havo becomo landmarks, of tlmo havo boon re duced along tho main .thoroughfares. Thq. topography of Omaha, in faqt, ls undergoing constant change. Ono must be Btruck by tho fact, as ho vlowa so much of this excavation, that It has required tho dint of hard est effort .to hul.ld this bustling Wost orn metropolis hero upon thoso old jlllUs. Bocauso of theso -obstacles wo have a city markedly strong and durable Omaha builds fast, but ex ceeding well. Steadily and much moro rapidly than ono may Incllno to think, it is supplanting tho trailer Btruct'uros of other days with nioro modern and mnssivo buildings. Thus far tio chango from warm woathor t6 mildly cool autumn haa not porcuptlbly checked building op- orations. 'Contractors and workmen Bcom to havo 'all they can do, and if men are unemployed In Omaha It must bo from choice nnd not neces sity. Tho chances are good for con- tluiouB work through tho winter In this line unless tho weather becomes very sovoro, for thoro ls bo much work under way that needs doing. Six. Great Corn States, Accord Lug to the government's lat est estimate the country boa produced this year 3,109,137,000 bushel's of corn. Comparing the cropB by states for the last four years, of which this ls tho largest, we find that Nebraska maintains Us place among tho six leading corn-producing states. It was fifth In 1909 and 1911, fourth In 1910 nnd ls sixth this year, with a yield larger than In auy of theso four years except 1910. Iowa goes into flrut place this j-ear with a very small margin over Illinois, which led in tho other three years, with Iowa in sec oud place, Missouri Is third this year, as It has been slnco 1909, when it was fourth with Indiana third Indiana this year ranks fifth, as It did In 1910, ranking fourth in 1911 Kansas is fourth this yeur, which is its highest rank in thoso four years. In 1909 and 1911 it dropped out of the six gtoat corn states on tlroly, being displaced both tiroes by Ohio and In 1910 It barely came into sixth place For 1912, upon tho basis of the government's figures, the standing of tho six leading states with their production by bushels Is as follows low 433.021.000 Illinois 4a.ia.ooi) Missouri :aM,ooo Kansas IW.t-il.too Indiana SW.sn.w) Nebraska IJy.SSO.O) In i,r..nn..Mn.. o..

An Interesting feature o tho governments report is tho exten sion of oorn-growing in the poulh Toxas, for Instance, which last year produced only 09,350,00 bushels, this year raised 163,300,000 bushels; Oklahoma produced 101,878,000 bushels aB against 3C,88S,000 last year, whllo Kentucky harvested 109, 440,000 bushels this year, Tonnesseo 86,632,000 and Arkansas 52,103,000 bushols. .As new land is opened up and Intensive methods applied to farming, theso figures will bo multi plied several times in the next few years and Nebraska, with such vast dominions yet untitled for corn, will rise much closer to the top of this list, Barking Up the Wrong Tree. Our amiable democratic contem porary indulges in a hysterical scream over nn unfortunate develop ment of a murder case in nprth Ne braska in which tho defendant, a woman, escaping on tho second trial on tho plea of insanity, is being held In the insane asylum instead of the penitentiary, nothwlthstnndlng the omphatlc assertion of the asylum authorities that sho is not now, and novor was, Insane. Tho animus of tho outburst of indignation ls found in the attempt to draw a moral against granting now trials In crim inal cases on "technicalities," and laying tho blamo on tho supremo court, rnther than on tho jury that held tho Insanity plea good. Tho trouble with both the promise and tho conclusion is that they rest upon n porvorsion of tho facts, as referenco to tho record of tho case in the Bupremo court reports will disclose. Tho bald assertion Is made that tho Bupremo court said "that in its opinion 8ho.wns guilty and sane, and tho penalty was not too groat." This is not a true statement, for no whoro Is it borne out by the opinion of tho court rendered by Judge Root and concurred in by flvo of the seven Judges. Quito tho contrary, tin. court holds that an erroneous in struction of the trial Judge com pletely barred tho jury from consider ing tho question of inaanity, which was tho only defense open to tho ac cused, thero being no dispute as to other circumstances. As every ono knows, tho right to Plead insanitv ls not a technicality, but-a substantial! ogal right. Tho only expression of bollof in tho. prisoner's sanity comes in tho dissenting opinion, concurred in by only two Judges, which cannot bit called an opinion of tho court. This Is a case whoro if Justico has miscarried, as it appears to have dono, the fault must bo lodged, not nBa,nst tlo supremo Judges, but against a Jury of tho prlsonor's neigh bors, who, manifesting tho usual compaBalon for n woman, gavo hor tho benefit of tho doubt.' John Knox nnd John Calvin, were thoy living, doubtloss would have Birillod bonign approval unon the United States, which has Just elected Presbyterians to bo president and vlco president, governors of New York, Indiana, and doubtless a few other states. And' one cannot forget n this connection tho part played at Ualtlmore by Elder Brynn of this same faith, which largoly rests upon tho doctrine of election. Don't forgot that the. only duties Imposed by the Albort law dovolve upon tho county attorney, who ls charged with prosecution of owners and rent coljoctors of misused prop erty.
