Southeast Missouri, down through
the Little River Drainage District,
will become the hunter's paradise this
autumn, if the reports that are daily
reaching the Cape are true.
The dry summer may have reduced
the corn crop, but it made the quail
and wild turkey flourish. The largest
coveys of quail seen in this part of
the state in many years are reported
from every community.
Flocks of wild turkey, nearly as
large as the tame varieties to be seen
at the average farm house, roam the
fields and swamp lands in the swamp
district. William Sanders, a farmer
living near Illmo, has three different
flocks on his land.
They have become so gently that
they frequently wander to the barn
lot and pick up grain. He is awaken
ed almost every morning by the gob
bling of the gobblers as they call their
flocks to order.
"There is one hen on my place,"
said Mr. Sanders, that has twenty
young ones. They are now more than
half grown and the gobblers have be
gun to strut.
"On a farm adjoining mine there
are three hens and their broods that
run together. They frequently visit the
hog pens and the straw stacks. I have
heard that hunters had begun to
Khoot these birds nothwithstanding
the fact that the law does not give
them permission to so for several
"Hut it would nut be good for a
hunter to be caught shooting wild
turkey on my farm. There was a
flock that roosted near my house last
winter and I did not shoot at them a
single time and I would not permit
anyone else to shoot them.
"If hunters would wait until these
birds are full grown before killing
them and then be moderate in their
mooting, we would soon replenish our
stock of this splendid game."
Charles Hitt, the Haarig barber,
yesterday received on invitation to
hunt this fall on the farm of a friend
who lives down mi the Little Kiver.

of the state. He expects to go tur

Mr. Charles Wilson and Miss Kmma
Nell llrooks were quietly married yes- j
terday evening at the homo of the
bride's parents, at 1151 llroadway.
The ceremony was performed by
Hev. F. Y. Campbell, with only imme
diate members of the respective fam
The wedding came as a surprise to
the many acquaintances and friends
of the young people, as it was gener
ally understood that the date had been
set for about October 1.
Mr. Wilson, who is engaged in the
automobile business in St, Louis, was
recently unexpectedly called to the
Cape on business matters, and it was
decided that as the time was so near
at band it would be best to, have the
wedding at this time and thus avoid
the necessity of Mr. Wilson's return.
The bride, who is one of the most
popular and accomplished ladies in the
city, is the daughter of Major and
Mrs. James F. Brooks, and was born
and reared in this city.
Mr. Wilson is the youngest son of
Mrs. Emma Wilson, of this city. He
was born in the Cape and has lived
here the greater part of his life, but
for the past two years has made his
home in St. Louis where he has en
tered the automobile business.
They are both of the most promin
ent families in Southeast Missouri,
and enjoy the friendship and highest
esteem of the entire community, and
when they depart this afternoon for
St. Louis where they will make their
home in the future, they will take
with them the kindest regards of a
host of sincere friends who wish them
every success and happiness in their

Electrical Display Frightens Res

A severe electrical storm accom
panied by a heavy downpour of rain,
visited the Cape Tuesday morning at
about 3 o'clock.
The storm suddenly and unexpect
edly and lasted for almost an hour.
Wicked flashes followed by deafen
ing claps of thunder, played inces
santly, and the heavens were almost
constantly in a state of brilliant illu
mination. Glittering blue flames flash
ed and darted along exposed wires and
metal fixtures, and the atmosphere it
self seemed to be heavily charged with
The disturbance ceased almost as
suddenly as it had appeared, and in
a few minutes after the echoes of the
last peal had faded away, the stars
came out and the sky was cleard per
fectly. .Many citizens who had been arous
ed from their slumbers by the furious
outbreak, again retired to finish their
night's rest after the storm abated
and the clouds had moved away.
Their peacefulness was soon to be
broken again, however, as their first
experience was only a forerunner of
one of the most furious and fear in
spiring aerial turbulences ever record
ed in this section of the country.
At about five o'clock great surging
banks of clouds appeared and in their
efforts to forge ahead, seemed to toss
and tumble as if struggling to escape
the wrath of some unseen force that
was driving them onward.
The heavens i were again con
cealed in inky blackness, and the sec
ond storm burst with renewed fury.
The machinery at the power house
could not withstand the immense volt-
the plant, and finally some of' the es
sential parts give way, after which
it was no longe- possible to distribute
power throughout the city.
The Tribune was just ready to go
to press when the breakdown occur
red, and for seven hours work was
suspended while the necessary repairs
were being made.
The power was impaired during the
progress of the first storm, but opera
tions did not cease until the second
outburst an hour later.
For several hours the street cars
were unable to move, and traffic was

Merlin, Aug. 2(5. The commanders
of the German troops are i.uing a
proclamation to the inhabitants of
every hostile town they occupy, as fol
lows: "Citizensa body of the German
army under my command has occu
pied your city. Inasmuch as the war
is carried on only between the armies,
I guarantee in due form the life and
private property of all the inhabitants
under the following conditions :
"1. The inhabitants must strictly
avoid every hostile act against the
"2. Food and forage for our men
and horses are to be furnished by the
inhabitants. Every such delivery will
be paid for at once in coin, or a re
ceipt will be issued, to be redeemed
after the termination of the war.
"3. The inhabitants are to house
our soldiers and horses in the best
manner, and to keep their houses
lighted at night.
"4. The inhabitants are to put the
roads in a passable condition, to re
move all obstacles erected by the ene
my, and to give the best support to
our troops, in order that they may be
able to fulfill their task, doubly dif
ficult in a hostile land.
"5. It is forbidden to collect in
crowds on the streets, to ring the bells
or to communicate with the enemy in
any way whatever.
"6. All weapons in possession of the
inhabitants are to be handed over at
the town hall within two hours.
"7. The Mayor, the clergyman and
four well-reputed citizens are to ap
pear before me at once to act as hos
tages during the stay of the troops.
Under these conditions I repeat it
the lives and private property of the
inhabitants are perfectly secure. The
strict discipline to which our soldiers
are accustomed renders it possible
that no inhabitant will be compelled
to neglect his business affairs, or to
desert his home and hearth.
On the other hand, I shall adopt the
most stringent measure as soon as the
above condtions are not observed. In
this respect I shall hold the hostages
in the first instance responsible. Be
sides this, every citizen will be shot
who is found with a weapon in his
hands, or committing any act what
ever hostile to our troops. Finally, the
entire city is res- onsible for the deeds
of every individual citizen, and the
citizens will do well to keep mutual
oversight over each other, in order
that they may avoid the unpleasant
consequences that must follow upon
any co-operation with the enemy."
It is as a consequence of no-observance
of such proclamations, the Ger
mans state, that a number of villages
in llelgium and on the Franco-German
frontier have been burned, and
the inhabitants severely punished.
ALL ABLE-BODIED MEN
IN GERMANY AT THE FRONT
Rules of Government Has Made Berlin
a Lady town, Say Tourists.
London, Sept. 8. As a result of
Germany's rigid compulsory military
service laws, there is not now an able
bodied man in the city of Berlin, ac
cording to tourists arriving from the
German capital. The mobilization or
ders of the Kaiser called out every
male in Lerlin except those too old,
cripples and boys. Theae now are do
ing police duty and guarding roads and
bridges. At all the approaches to the
city and around the bridges and pub
lic buildings boys of It and 14 years
of age may be seen, wearing uniforms
and standing guard with fixed bayo
nets. Since this war began, much has been
heard of Germany's military regula
tions and much misinformation has
been disseminated. Military service
in Germany is compulsory. Liability
begins at the age of seventeen and
ends at the age of forty-five, but ac
tual service begins at twenty.
There aro no exceptions to the rule;
no ways to dodge duty except by leav
ing the country. The vigorous law ap
plies to all, rich and poor, aristocrat
The term of compulsory service in
the Germany army is seven years in

horse artillery, where the periods are
three and four year.-. During this re
servo service, the soldier is regarded
as belonging to his corps and joins it
twiV" in the five (or four) year period
for six weeks of training.
After being in the first lin" army,
the Gorman soldier passes into the
l.and.vehr, or second line army. He
serves live years in the infantry, or
throe years for cavalrymen and horse
artillerymen, in the first ban of the
Landwehr. Infantrymen nre called
out for training twice in this period,
each time for ?ight or fourteen days.
Landwehr cavalry and horse artillery
are not called out in time of peace.
The soldier then is passed into the
second ban of the Landwehr, until he
reached his fortieth year. There is no
training during this period of service.
The Sick Man of the East

Turkey in the Great European war. Xono in touch with the situation, mil

AsiUM to take a hand in the fracas. The only wonder was that Turkey
did not not in sooner.
Doubtless the Porte was waiting to see "which way the cat jumped."
if the Allies had started out victorious, Turkey might have cast her lot
with her great and good friend, England. But the success of German arms
in France, the s&ady pounding of the German lines, daily forging ahead,
nearer and nearer to Paris, probably convinced Turkey that the safest
place. would be on the side of Germany.
Therefore Turkey must was against the Allies. Her objective is sup
posed to be the Russian Caucasus and Egypt, which country formerly be
longed to Turkey.
In this war, Turkey has nothing to lose, because the

meht. Also Turkey had an army of some 600,000 nien Teft over from tb.e Bal
kan wars. She has to keep them in arma, tacause of the threatened sec
ond war with Greece, and it may be that tHe Porte thought tlhese men
might as well be fighting somebody.
But the most probable explanation of Turkey's participation in the war
is that she was persuaded by Germany. The fact that about 'seventy-two
German officers are with the Turkish army gave notice to the world, early
in the struggle that if Turkey came in, she would be on the side of Ger
many. Should the Kaiser win out in the big war, with Turkey as an ally, it
would be an excellent thing for Turkey.
The Balkan states that are Turkey's enemies, the states which partition
ed Turkey-in-Europe, are Slavonic, and as such are on the side of Russia.
Germany has asserted that her principal enemy in the great conflict is
Russia, the Germans fighting orginally to prevent the consummation Of the
Pan-Slavonic Union. "
Therefore if Turkey should be on the winning side at the end of the
war, it might help her considerably in regaining some of her lost territory,
particularly the Aegean Islands, most of which went to Greece at the end
of the Balkan war.
When Turkey mobilized her troops and declared war, it was ail that
she already had taken steps to attack Egypt. That African country, which
formerly was a Turkish possession, is now a British Protectorate, though
nominally autonomous, under the Khedive. To re-take Egypt it would be
necessary only for the Turks to defeat the small British army now in that
country. England is far too busy just now on the continent to devote much
attention to Egypt.
With the Czar having his hands full with Austria and with Germany in
fcast Prussia and in Russian Poland, the Turkish government might figure
that it would be a safe time to invade the Caucasus, and win back some of
the territory that Russians originally wrested from the Constantinople
At any rate, Turkey had nothing to gain by remaining neutral, little
more to lose than she already has lost and in a general Armageddon, such
as now is raging throughout Europe almost anything might happen.
