tho first article of Impeachment.
Denver News: . The -m vau,
Impeachment Is the proof that It gives
of the power of public opinion and the
admission of popular sovereignty.
Indianapolis News: Once again we see
that the constitution as framed by the
fathora Is not so hopelessly out of date
us some of our modem reformers would
have us believe.
Des Moines Capital: The overwhelm
ing vote-CG to S-ln favor of 'impeach
ment on the first count makes It plain
that the senate acted entirely upon the
merits of the case and not from parti
san, factional or other considerations.
Kansas City Times; The good in this
trial and tho result of it la not measured

standard than many Judges have set for

tho fact that even under the present
cupjbersome. sysfe'm It Is possible to

Cleveland Plain Dealer: If an example
was needed to prove that tho people al

OMAHA, Jan. IS. To the Kdltor of The
Bee: I desire to thank you for the ed
itorial on "Prize Fighting and Fakers."
It Is timely nnd every law-abiding citizen
will commend you for It.
Would you define the status of the beg
gars on the streets of Omaha that seem
to he In a bad pllght7 Does not tho
county provldo for nil such unfortunates?
Why are tlmy permitted to be on tho
streets displaying their afflictions? Our
city Is abundantly ublo to provldo for all
such nnd most people do not object to
being taxed for such Institutions or pro
vide for deserving dependents, but when
Is one nble to know who Is undeserving?
It seems to me It reflects upon the dig
nity and standing of a city lo allow beg
gars on tho streets and especially Upon
the principal thoroughfares. They should
he taken In charge by the police, ' their
real condition Investigated and such pro
vision made for them that 'comports with

The -ISrxt Corn Khoiv.
COLUMBIA, 8. a, Jan. 10.-To the
Kdltor of Tho Bee: The National Corn
exposition will be held this year In
Columbia from January 17 to February
S. That It comes from the great corn
states of the west to Bouth Carolina Is
remarkable, and is due In part to tho
.achievement of feouth Carolina corn
growers who hold the world's record In
.production of corn per acre and to tho
enthusiasm and enterprise of South
Carolinians In guaranteeing the ex
penses of tho exposition and In provld
ing special buildings for It. The chief
building, ' a gigantic 'steel structure Just
erected, covers 07,000 feet of floor space.
The exposition fundamentally educa
tional; It ia planned and conducted on a
unique basis and Is devoted entirely to

OMAHA, Jan, 18. To the Editor of The
Bee: I am wondering If very many ot the
people of Nebraska fully rcaflzo the
wonderful Industrial changes that havo
taken place In this county during tho
last ten years und the effect these
changes have upon the business ot
'farming.
For instance, ten yeaai ago the factors
output of nutomobles was 9,000. Last year
3,(j00 uutomoblles wtro built In tho
United Htatcs nnd It Is safe to say that
near 1,000,0X0 arc now in use. Today count
lesa thousnnds of well paid men are en
gaged In manufacturing, selling and run
ning automobiles and theso thousands
nre all consumers of farmers' products.
The same Is true In similar degree of
the moving picture tndustry. the. electrical
Industry, tho cement Industry and many
others.
During tlie last ten years wo had 8,571,
000 Immigrants como to this country nnd
of this number (USS.OOO settled north of
"tho Ohio and enst of the Mississippi
river, most all of whom engaged lp some
kind of Industrial pursuit
During tho last ten years we have had
a most wonderful Increase In the num
ber of men who have become so well-to-do
that they do not need to, and do not,
engage themselves In productive, labor,
but do engage themselves In trading, traf
ficking nnd bartering of one kind and,
another by which tljcy are making money
easier than the way they got their start;
also a wonderful Increase In tho number
of students In our colleges, of ministers,
lawyers, bankers, clerks, bond, brokers. In
surance agents, newspaper tnen, printers,
delivery men about towns and cities, and
almost countless others who nro' consum
ers and have the money to buy with,
but whose labors, however, useful, are
not toward producing things to cat and
the farmers feed them all.
This great Industrial and professional
growth has created a growing demand for
meat, milk and butter, and here Is where
Nebraska shines, but right here la where
Nebraska needs to wake up to Its oppor
tunity. On our 127,728 Nebraska, farms that
average 20 acres eacK we have, 4 H01S
milch cows, or three cows to each farm.
On these Nebraska farms we have 1.BS3
silos, or ono to each seventy farms, nnd
this In spite of tho fact that the demand
for milk has become sq great throughout
the eastern states that nearly every
farmer who milks cows, as far west as
Indiana, can get such a price for milk
that It is sold Just as It comes from the
cow, leaving a wide-open butter market
all throughout the east for Nebraska
farmer.
' Fair more, than halt of the counties In
Nebraska, ace Just oa rich in' farming
possibilities-as-Jefferson cqunty. Wiscon
sin, and this s certainly no reflection
upon Jefferson county, Wlsconsln'but this
one Wisconsin county that la only twenty-four
miles square ha wtthlu Its boun
iJarlex more than tt.OW raltcli wows, ha
!
forty-nine treameries. six cheese factor
Irs, nnd five condensaries, and last year
the farmers of that one county produced
milk to the vnlue of X.&00.UJ0. and sold I
more than iMM.COO worth ot young and '
old dairy stock.
Last year our 1I7,7U Nebraska farms
produced cereals, forage, root and fruit
ciops to the value of $333,000,000 and the
production of cream was only a side line.
We would not havo to reach anything
like tho maximum of our possibilities to
have the sale of Nebraska cream atone
go far aboWs the value of all of the
eoreals, forage, root and fruit crops that
we raised last year.

The way to purchase happiness
Is the Installment plan,
A kindly deed to ono In need
Y6u proffer when you can;
A smile or two you must pay down;
That Isn't much to pay
Then on the score you offer more
A chances come your way.
Of course, you'ro paying all your life
You see, the sort of man
That people bless, buys happiness
On the installment plan.
