Author of'the Famous Fourteen
Points Will Sit at Peace Ta?
ble and See That America's
Aims Are Carried Out.
Washington, December 3?1'resi?ent
Wilson began tonight his trip to Eu?
rope to attend the peace conference.
The President left Washington on a
special train for New York, where to?
morrow he and his party will board
the transport George Washington on
which the voyage across the Atlantic
will be made.
No announcement was made as to
the president's itinerary, but it was
understood that the George Washing?
ton would steam from New York with
her naval convoy sometime tomor?
row, probably in the morning. About
seven days will be required for the
trip, and the ship will dock at a
French port, presumably Brest.
The President does not expect to
be abroad for more than six weeks,
which would give him just a month
on European soil. Bet'ora the peace
conference meets he will confer with
Premiers Lloyd George, of Great
Britain; Clcmanceau, of France and
Orlando, of Italy, and probably with
King Albert of Belgium, to discuss
the salient points of the peac treaty.
While in Europe Mr. Wilson plans
to visit England and Italy as well as
France, and he may go to Brussels.
Hu also is understood to intend to
make a pilgrimage to some of the
battlefields in France. Great prep?
arations have been made in London
Paris, and Rome for the President's
Joseph P. Tumulty, the president's
secretary, accompanied Mr. Wilson to
New York, but will not go abroad. He
will return to Washington to conduct
the ubsiness of the White House and
will be the eyes and eacrs of the
president in this country. Mr. Tu?
multy will be in frequent communica?
tion with the oresident by cable and
will keep him fully advised of events
at home.
President Wilson did not go to the
union station until a short time be?
fore the time for his train to depart.
As he and Mrs. Wilson entered the
station the crowd there cheered and
s'ddiers and sailors who were wait?
ing for trains formed a human lane
through which the President and Mrs.
Wilson walked to the train shed.
When some of the crowd wished
the president "Good Luck" and "A
Pleasant Voyage,"' Mr. Wilson smil?
ingly called back "Thank you."
Just before the train pulled out of
the stntion, the personnel of the par?
ty aboard was announced.
Only three of the five American
representatives to the peace confer?
ence as announced at the White house
will cross on the former North Ger?
man-Lloyd liner. They are the pres?
ident himself, ecretary of t?te Rob?

help them in their bereavement'.
Brother Shoop was always ready
to minister to tho sick and helpless.
He will he much missed in our com?

lose him it is Heaven's gain. We are
sure that he has only fallen asleep
safe in the arms of Jesus.

I related ;ii the little book "The Cap

I Moore family were almost extermi?
nated by the Indians years ago. 0. B.
: Joyful Moore, a member of the Moore
jlnmily, lives in the old home place oi
I his fathers He has n nice home and
'a tine farm, and brags a good deal
about bis line corn. We got n glimpse
I of him us we passed. He was pot l ei ?
i ing around in a barn hIickI near the
< road, all muffled up like he was about
half frozen. On the road lives Wag
i tier, Mrs. Ilurrissou and John W.
IUuchannii, Mr.-.. Ilnrrisson has a nice
large residence, wl|jlc just across the
road is the old log house of other
I days, long ago. Glad it stands. These
I old landmarks should not be lorn
I away. The "old pile" is "crumbling
I In the dust." The roof of the old front
I porch is sway-hacked and, like an oh
I man, is bowing and leaning towards
'the eul'th. Talk about bad roads! In
i Abb's Valley there is some of the
worst roads ever. Along about MrH.
Harrison's and .lohn Iluchanan's ami
i in other places, the roads are bad
enough now. What they must bo in
midwinter is scraccly imaginable.
I We wound around over a big ridge

something got wrong with the stem

[or some other part of the car, and
?ran them against side of the bridge

I were both dead, but luckily, neither
