The Poetry of Antumn.
That tho weather ran a Aid his Worst
to us for moro than throe months, all
will admit: but why not lot by
gones be bygones and face the future
with faith even In the weather man,
who Intimates that ho will never,
never do It again? Why not forget
and forgive, at least forgive, and look
to the coming weeks of a typical Nc-
braaka'autumn, which Is a season for
tho gods? Into It wo have plunged
In a night but out o It we shall not
emerge till winter's snows enshroud
us, and In the meantime wo shall
enjoy the most refreshing, invig
orating and delightful season of the
year. ,
"1 am the poem of earth," said the
voice of the rain,
And, there Is just enough of this
poetry In a Nebraska autumn to
moisten and nweeten the earth and
tho air and the aromas exhaled by tho
dying leaves and foliage. If ono time.
Is more adapted to tho spirit of such
forgiveness than others, surely it Is
this time of tho "melancholy days,
(he saddest of tho year,' but niso tho
most Joy-Insplrlng.

in the well-known year of 1192 Chris
topher Columbus stood leandlng over the
rail of the good ship Isabella. (See
Petrarch Googly's "Columbue the Gem
of the Ocean.") Suddenly, with Just the
suspicion of a splash, a thought struck
him.
"HI! Bpagetto! nudolphb! Glovanl
Gar LJck!" he cried. And soon his
trusted officers were gathered about him.
(Bee Rlffery Sklnk's "The Christian
Narrtea of Columbus' Crew.")
"What? What?" they chorused excit
edly. "Spyxonl noi lando, nlxlT" (ToU
don't spy land, do you?")
"A thought has struck me," explained
Christopher. , "IJseento." ("Listen.")
"I'll tll It tn vou. It's a.-, rood one!"
(Seo Antonio Spavlnl'a "Columbus' Table

"I was Just thinking," said tha great
discoverer, with a sly Italian smile, "I
was Just thinking that It we found the
earth to be flat Instead of round after
all. where do we get off?''
The officers, after laughing politely,
mado a note of It, and this Is said td be
the origin of the slang phrase, "Where
do I got off?" etc. Detroit Free Press,

During the last presidential election a

"E don't know."
What'' about Wilson?"

"Do you think Roosevelt has any

The Case of Prof. Iternsteln.
OMAHA. Sept U.-To the Editor of Tho

demotion of Prof. Bernstein of the Omaha
High school certainly will appeal to the
sonse of Justice and fair ploy Inherent In
every rightly constituted Individual An
a- graduate of the high school and as a
former student under Prof. Bernstein. U
does Indeed seem odd to me that after
fifteen years of efficient and faithful
ervlce a man's devotlbn to hs work
should be rewarded tn this peculiar
fashion.
The inducement held out by employers
to young people today who are entering
the business field Is that of promotion
and ultimate success1. This goal as a
rule Is only achieved after years of hon
est -and energetlo service. The reward
should Justly bo commensurate with 'the
quality; 6f cervlco rendered. In Prof.
Bernstein's case It seems that efficiency
and faithfulness In the discharge of his
duties count for naught and that a .cap
able Instructor'a Just deserts, are nqt
worthy of real consideration by tbe
powers that foe.
The professor has always possessed the
faculty 6f jnaklng real friends of his
pupils without In the least sacrificing
the proper dignity compatible with his

Into consideration- I refer to the fact
that If this coast-to-coast road passes
through Nebraska as proposed, It will run
alone; the line of the Union Pacltlo rail
road, and nearly all the way will. Ho
within the 400 feet claimed by the rait
read company as their right-of-way. In
what hi known as the Townsend case, or
tho Northern Faclflo against Tpwnsend, It
was held by the United, States supreme
court that that read could not sell, or In
anyway alienate Its right-of-way (It had
(09 feet, the same, as claimed by the Union
Pacific), nor could any private person,
or the public, obtain title to It by adverse
possession. If that doctrine should be
held 'as applicable to the Union Pacific
(and th question has hot yet bn Ju
dicially determined) It will be seen that
this proposed road through Nebraska In
volves great possibilities of future trouble
for us lf the State should become a party
to It.
Why then should we give any encour
agement to this proposed road along the
line of the Union Pacific railroad when It
is , bound to be a very expensive propo-
Itlon with no, compensatory advantages?

A man who has no heed of trends Is

for pubUo amusement, it may be also a
means for saving many lives lost on the
lakes and river each year through ignor
ance of the currents and the condition of
the bottom of tbe water.

Afraid of Lincoln HI Kb. way, 1
SILVKU CREEK, Neb., Sept. I8..-T0' tni(
Editor of Tha Bee: Now that It has been
determined that the "Lincoln Highway,"
or coast-to-posst. road, is to go west from
Omaha along the line of the old "over-
land trail." I suppose I ought to be highly
elated. But I am not; I- don't want the
road to corns this way at all and have
been boosting tor .Lincoln. What Is a
"Lincoln" road good for anyway, that
don't go through Lincoln?
If the road does come this way it will
cross my farm, and that a Just exactly
what I do not want, I can't drive to town
now about three miles distant) without
having to be all the time on the watch
tor automobiles, and If we had that road
with autos swarming past all the tiro,
as they would do, I should feel like leav
ing the state. Which would doubtless he
a great relief to some people. It wll net
be long before every farmer will have an
automobile, and every man and woman
In town who can manage to get In dsbt
for one, and that will be about as much
as we can attend to. If the automobile
tourists would leave any money In the
Country worth while it might be different.
But they will leave practically nothing at
all butslde of the big towns llks Fremont,
Grand Island and Kearney, and very little

Silver Creek would get out of It would
be the profit on the sale of a little oil
and a few cigars. Of course, those tour
ists would need a little beer and booze.
But that would be no object to US as
Silver Cretk Is located midway between
several dry towns (Osceola. Stromsburg,
Central City, tunerton, ucnoa ana Mon
roe) and It Is as much as we can do to
keep all those prohibitionists wet up. (I
suppose It takes about a carload a week,)
It Is claimed that the Lincoln highway
people have raised .090,630 by private
subscription and that they will raise
000,000 more. In building this coast to
coast read they propose to rurnisn the
material and then want the states and
counties to do tha work and, of course,
keep th road In repair for all time. And
so next year the automobile people will
make another fight for the control of
the legislature, as they have already twice
done with the rsault that nobody got any
road legislation of any value, simply be
cause tbe automobile rang wanted to- hog
the whole thing.
