THE BLYTHESVILLE TRAIN.
The efforts that are being made to change the schedule of the Blythes
ville train would be little short of disastrous to the merchants. It would be
far more advantageous if another train could be brought into Cape Girardeau
from another direction, arriving and departing on the Blythesville schedule.
The Frisco service on the Blythesville line is excellent so far as the mer
chants and the buyers are concerned. The train's arrival here at 11 o'clock
in the morning is convenient to people who live along the line and shop in
Cape Girardeau It departs at 3 o'clock, which gives visitors four hours to
do their purchasing.
There is no train ente.ing this city that is more beneficial to the mer
chants than the Frisco running to and from Blythesville. To change the
schedule so that the train arrives at 6 o'clock in the evening and departs at
7 in the morning, would either drive people who now shop here to other
cities or it would make expeditions to Cape Girardeau exceedingly incon
venient. In addition to changing the schedule on the Blythesville line, the Frisco
is to be asked to put on another train that will penetrate a more populous
region, with Cape Girardeau as the terminus.
This request would be rejected, especially just now. Railroads all over
the country are retrenching, and the Frisco is still in the hands of receivers.
Mr. Nixon, receiver and operator of the road, knows too much about the busi
ness to incumber that line with more burdens.
It is out of the question to expect the Frisco to put on another train just
new. Of course, it would be beneficial to this city, and no doubt is an event
o? the future, but not at present.
The Blythesville train is rendering good service and it brings trade to this
city every day. But if those who would change the schedule of this train
cm have one like they propose put on, they ought to do that first and then
arrange new hours for Blythesville. If they cannot induce the Frisco to add
another train, they should let well enough be.
TOM JUDEN AND HARA-KIRI.
If the Democratic party succeeds in appointing Thomas J. Juden Post
master of Cape Girardeau, it will not be necessary for that party to nominate
county tickets in the future. Mr. Juden was defeated for Committeeman in
the primaries without an opponent. The Democrats simply wrote the name
cf James A. Kinder on the ticket, and enough of them'did it to .defeat' Mr.
juden. That proves how popular Mr. Juden is among Democrats. Mr. Juden
has made an excellent court clerk, but he is probably the most unpopular man
in this county. For the Democrats to appoint him Postmaster of Cape Gir
ardeau, would simply mean that the Democratic party had voluntarily corn
VEST'S EULOGY OF A DOG.
At the request of a reader of The Tribune, we are reproducing herewith
the famous eulogy of a dog, delivered by the late United States Senator
Geo. G. Vest. This speech was delivered at a trial of a suit to recover damages
for the death of a Missouri dog, which had been killed by a farmer. Senator
Vest prosecuted the case. His speech was as follows:
Gentlemen of the Jury: The best friend a man has in this world may
turn against him and become his enemy. His son or daughter, that he has
reared with loving care, may prove ungrateful. - Those who are nearest and
dearest to us, those whom we trust with our happiness and our good name,
may become traitors to their faith.
The money that a man has he may lose. It flies away from him, perhaps
when he needs it most. A man's reputation may be sacrificed in a moment of
iil-considered action. The people who are prone to fall on their knees to do us
honor when success is with us, may be the first to throw the stone of malice
when failure settles its cloud upon our heads.
The absolutely unselfish friend that a man can have in this selfish world,
the one that never deserts him, the one that never proves ungrateful or treach
erous, is his dog.
Gentlemen of the Jury: A man's dog stands by him in prosperity and in
poverty, in health and in sickness.
He will sleep on the cold ground, where the wintry winds blow apd the
snow drives fiercely, if only he can be near his master's side. He will kiss
the hand that has no food to offer, he will lick the wounds and sores that come
in encounters with the roughness of the world.
He guards tHe sleep of his pauper master as if he were a prince. When
all other friends desert, he remains. When riches take wings and reputation
falls to pieces, he is as constant in his love as the sun in its journey through
If fortune drives the master forth, an outcast in the world, friendless and
homeless, the faithful dog asks no higher privilege than that of accompanying
to guard against danger, to fight against his enemies; and when the last
scene of all comes, and death takes the master in its embrace, and his body is
laid away in the cold ground, no matter if all other friends pursue their .way,
there by his graveside will the noble dog be found, his head between his paws,
his eyes sad but open in alert watchfulness, faithful and true even in death.
WAR RECALLS LINCOLN'S LETTER.
A Berlin mother, whose six sons went to the front when Germany de
clared war on the Allies, has lost five of them. This sacrifice recalls vividly
the letter written by Abraham Lincoln. fifty years ago this month to Mrs.
Bixby, in Boston, Mass., who lost five sons on the battlefield in the great
conCict between the North and the South. His letter, which seems particular
ly appropriate at this time, follows:
To Mrs. Bixby, Boston, Mass.
' I have been shown in the files of the War Department a state
ment of the Adjutant General of Massachusetts that you are the
mother of five sons who have died gloriously on the field of

should attempt to beguile you from the grief. of a loss. so over
whelming. But I cannot refrain, from tendering you the consola
tion that may be found in the thanks of the republic, they died to
I pray that our Heavenly Father may assuage the anguish of "
your bereavement, and leave you only the cherished memory of
the loved and lost, and the solemn pride that must be yours to

Berlin Shows no Evidence of
War Prices of Food Are
: r " " Normal; 1
Berlin, Nov. 9 They still eat wheat
bread in Berlin. Amusements proceed
with little sign of abatement. Few
posters to call men to arms are' in evi
dence, and there are many able-bodied
men on the etreets in civilian clothes.
These" conditions, in striking contrast
t othe situation in neutral Holland,
where all people are compelled to eat
bread that has a 75 per cent of ad
mixture of rye, and where almost all
walls are covered with official an
nouncements relating to mobilization
and the regulation of prices, were
sources of wonderment to a corres
pondent of the Associated Press, who
has just arrived from constant scenes
of war and its aftermath.
That Germany is at war could not
De gleaned from street impressions,
though a person might speculate on
the causes that have led to two con
ditions. Everywhere one see large
photographs of the Emperor, the
Crown Prince and Generals von Hin
denberg, von Beseler and other mili
tary notables exhibited, as are cam
paign lithographs i n the United
States. There are other photographs
of Emperor Francis Joseph and Aus
The second condition is the poor
state of the horses which do the .haul
ing in the city. All good horses have
been requisitioned for military pur
poses, with the result that every horse
able to keep moving is being urged to
further, and often painful, effort.
There is surprisingly few soldiers to
be seen in the streets of the German
capital. Now and then a column puts
in an appearance cheerful, eager and
usually bedecked with flowers off for
the war. Beside the men are seen
mothers, wives, sisters, sweethearts
not so cheerful. But it seems to be
contrary to some unwritten law to
to show emotions in this business of
going to tJie front, perhaps never to
return. So, while the men hide their
concern imder a cheerfulness that ap
pears to be natural enough, the wom
en belie their redened eyes with a
smile and swallow hard as each talks
to the man whom she accompanies to
the train that will take him east or
west either way a road to danger.
The cafes are crowded to capacity;
and many artists who are out of wprk
represent cultailment of programs
rather than total closing. A similar
condition prevails among shop and fac
tory employes, but in their case the
percentage of unemploymcn i slower
because of the men taken to the front.
Official figures recently issued show
that, with the progress of redistribut
ing labor not yet completed, there
were in Berlin only from 2 to 6 per
cent more unemployed than normally,
while in the case of certain trades,
which require men to exceptionally

-There has been little reduction in
the quantity, and no deterioration in
the quality of the food offered. Nor
are the prices materially higher. Many
of .the big restaurants have made no
change whatever in their prices since
the war began.
"We must win," is the slogan of
everybody in Berlin. To make this pos
sible, everybody accepts resignedly
whatever sacrifice has to be made.

the battle line, the women, including

Comment heard in the street, public
places and official quarters is not such
that one could say that the war is pop
ular in Germany. That term would
hardly describe the feeling. A better
definition of the sentiment prevailing
in all classes of Berlin's population
and, it is claimed, the empire, is that
the was is a very disagreeable busi
ness, -which must be disposed of thor
oughly and with whol?-heartedness.
In the crowds may be seen many
women in mourning. While the spirit
of collecvity of the, Berliner is. such
that the sight of them does not leave
him unimpressed, itf also reminds him
that what happened to pne today may:
happen to another tomorrow. Press
and public alike express this Spartan
sentiment. ' ,
