GOETHALS GETS THE "BUCK."
General Goethals is said to take his per
emptory designation as head of the. eight Tiour
railroad law commission rather grimly. Well,
why shouldn't he? Having the buck passed to
•youin a labor controversy is no cinch. "I am
still umler orders," is the way Goethals puts it.
Could not Mr. Wilson without recourse to
dragooning, get somebody to shoulder the re
sponsibility of displeasing either the railroad
men or the public—or both?
.] Incidentally, General Goethals and both of
his associates on the commission, Edgar E.
Clark and George Rublee, are republicans.

of longer views? Why climb except for the
hope of seeing far?" t,*
Dr. Slater makes an earnest' plea for this
study of the profoundly interesting question,
Whither, are we going? We study the track
whence we came, in anthrapology and history.
The look ahead is surely of more instant con
cern.- There is no ground, either theoretical oi
practical, upon which we may hesitate to con
sider the subject of living for the future," It
is true enough, perhaps, that our ancestors
thought too piuch about the future and too
little about the present. Nowadays the pendu
lum has swung too far the other way, and in
some quarters the gospel of the kingdom is al
most identified with model tenements, district
nurses and eugenics, so that many of us have
become curiously indifferent to the relative
values of sociology and character. "It does not
follow that »a daily bath is a complete substi
tute for the holy communion." Dr. Slater
urges us to give ourselves the pleasure now and
then of a brief excursion into the world where
we shall be after the death of the body. His
purpose is avowedly not philosophical but prac
tical, not metaphysical but ethical. In the book
are no arguments in support of immortality it
self, but," says the author, "those who believe
in personal immortality without being able to
attach to that belief any sense of reality or any
practical consequences, may perhaps be l$d in
to certain inferences, conjectures, and hopes
that will be not without interest for the intel
lectual and moral life."
A few extracts from Dr. Slater's book will
show the trend of his thought: '-1^'
In the first place, our future life will not be
idle. There must, if the soul really lives
hereafter and is not merely preserved or em
balmed in'an arrested state, be an endless spirit
ual integration. In order to prevent the far easier
disintegration that so easily overtakes us.
In some form or other, the discipline and the de
light of work must nbt be altogether lacking.
If the future life is not to be an idle life, its
activities must be such as belong to the realm of
the spirit. By the spirit (or soul) will be meant,
•throughout this discussion, all of the mind that
can survive physical death. And a soul
which had lost all of its powers of contact with
the rich and wonderful treasures of mfemory and
imagination, which" could no longer perceive or
conceive and reason as we do (or In some better
.way) would be no friend of ours. He might be
an angel, but we do not want to be angelB we
want to be ourselves.
Of the activities possible, then. In a spiritual
world, the first and perhaps the greatest may be
the silent influence for good upon" other spirits
In both worlds. It may mean the enlightenment
of error, steady, persistent reminder of past
privilege and aspiration. Matthew Ar
nold's "hours of Insight"—hours sometimes of a
purely intellectual Insight, when the worth of the
moral ideal Is suddenly and briefly revealed In all
its beauty. But how often, when your good angel
says, "Remftmber," you ask In vain, whether in
petulance or in prayer, "Remember what?" The
answer comes only as before, like a distant bell
that sounds the passing hours. "Remember, re
member!" It is life's warning signal, eternity's
cipher message to time, the future's summons to
the present. Taere are many that send that
message to us by night and by day many that
live beyond the mountains, and some that sleep
beyond the sea all of them friends.
Dr. Slater's chapters are never dogmatic
and the inquiry he invites is so fascinating that
many should be tempted to make it. It may
well be that his book will seem to make the
inquiry profitable as well as alluring.

Before such a calamity the administra

Clinton Herald: Prospects are that
the price of potatoes will reach $2 a
bushel and that the price of eggs wilt
ascend to 50 cents, according to local
dealers. What possible excuse can be
offered, for such almost unheard of
prices, right on the heels of the pro
ducing season? One explanation is
given in a bint that cold storage buy5
ers have monopolized the egg supply.
Here is an opportunity for another
democratic investigating body that
might be of some practical benefit.
Council Bluffs Nonpareil: President
Wilson's Omaha speech was non-politi
cal, according to label, but one gets
the impression from reading it that it
bears a striking resemblance to an
argument in support of Mr. Wilson's
democratic theorty of government.
Des Moines Tribune: A Chicago man
who, with a friend, visited a police sta
tion to give it the "once over" found
he was wanted on two charges. Per
haps he is now convinced that a police
station is a good place to stay away
from.
Burlingtiwr Hawk-Eye:' Everybody
in Iowa wants good roads. Then why
grow excited or squable over the de
tails? Iowans generally get what they
want even if it be the latest model
touring cars. And getting these, or
course, Iowa wants to use them, the
auto is the greatest argument for real
roads.
Webster City Freeman-Tribune. Of
course the republicans of Iowa, and
all the people of the state for that mat
ter, would .like to see and hear Justice
Hughes, but if he comes this way dur
ing the campaign he will simply be
wasting his time. It would be better
for the republican party if its presi
dential candidate would expend his
time and effortB in states where there
may be some doubt of the outcome.
Iowa is safe for from 50,000 to 100,000
majority.
fteal Estate Bandits.
World's Work: The enterprise of
the land and irrigation companies
along the Mexican border is truly
magnificent. First they buy the land
at from fifteen cents to three dollars
an acre, grub off the mesquite and
cactus, introduce these bare acres to
the Rrio Grande toy canal, spot roads
and streets, plant their borders with
palmettos and citrus fruit trees, and
run a few miles of neat, white-wash
ed fence around their so-called "im
provements."
Then they are ready for the "home
suckers." They run them down on
big excursion trains, feed them, sleep
them on board the trains or in com
fortable cottage barracks built for
the purpose, cut their hair and fill
them full of alluring, indigestible
statistics. Bn route and on the
ground the agents make apparent
sales by telegram from mystic distant
buyers which are checked up vigor

NAUVOO, ILL., OCT. 10.
Nauvoo's high school pupils have
organized a literary society and ex

instructive evenings during the school
term.
Nauvoo's ball team -went to FVrt
Madison last Sunday afternoon to
play with the ball txwsers of the up
river city. The penitentiary city out

vwo received one lonely score to Fort
Madison's seven. Even at that, Nau
voo's ball tossers feel elated in hold
ing the leaguers down to 'seven \runs.
Autumn leaves always cause much
inconvenience. The fallen leaves
are blown about everywhere In the
main section of the city. If there is
no way to prevent the leaves from
coming down, perhaps a method
might^be devised for raking them up
and take them to a safe place and
burn them.
Mr. and Mrs. Elmer Buckert and
little daughter of Ijouisville, Ky., are
visiting relatives in N&uvoo, the
guests of the young man's parents,
Mr. and Mrs. John Buckert.
Mrs. Louis Cook of Warsaw, came
up to Nauvoo last Saturday after
noon for a visit with her daughter,
Mrs. A. E. Dangherty and family.
Mrs. Edith Tyler of Dunlap, Iowa,
is In Nauvoo for a three week's visit
with her daughter, Mrs. W. F. Hertel,
at the Lutheran parsonage. This
column came over in a row boat with
the lady last Saturday night and in
which boat there were an even doz
en persons. Mrs. Tyler said it was
her first experience in crossing a
river in a skiff since she was a lit
tle girl and then crossed the Illinois
river, which is about one-third as
wide as Lake Keokuk at this point.
The lady stood the trip bravely with
but little fear and proved herself
quite a heroine. Mrs. Tyler, after
terminating her vlBit at Nauvoo,
will go to Lincoln, Neb., to make her
future home.
It is believed that one million dol
lars' worth more cars will be bought
next year than there were this year.
If that in any more sales are made in
this section, Nauvoo authorities will
have to widen Mulholland street, our
business section, considerable.
Complaint is made by the attend
ants at the Nauvoo high sch»ol on
account of the very dark rooms and
suggest the removal of three soft
maple trees that are close to the
north side of the building. The
school board ought to remove them
or put more windows In the high
school building.
Fred Salm, Jr., and Jos. Nelson of
Nauvoo were in Springfield, 111., re

Kimball of Nauvoo, motored to St.

Carl Boedecker of Nauvoo assisted

the street fair last week.
The Ladles' Industrial society of
Nauvoo will hold their annual harvest
social October IS and 14, in our opera
bouse. The ladles will serve a
"Dutch dinner" on Saturday, October
14. They invite all to bring In veg
etables, fruit, bakery and fancy work.
Some places like Chicago, Kansas
City and a few other rural routes are
dressing up girls and sending them
out as police officers to catch mash
ers. and fears are entertained that
many other places may tak^ up this
method to stop lovers to become
united. We cannot say that we ap
prove of this idea. If a girl cannot
catch a masher, will it not he a re
flection on either her dutlfulness or
on her attractiveness If Marie or
Sally comes in day after day with
the "nothing doing" sign up, may not
the captain conclude that she is not
competent as a masher catcher and
shift her to the cabbage garden to
catch stray cows and mules? To
avoid this contingency we should say
that It would be "up to" Marie or
Sally to catch their share of mashers,
enough to keep them on the mashing
squad. This may result In over
offlclousness and overzealousness.
With their job at stake they may ar
rest men with what the poet called
"the kindly eye," genUemen who may
give a lady's coznllness a kind and ap
proving glance on the street. On
the other hand, there may be Mable,
whose attractiveness no man can
withstand. To set her forth in the'
highways and byways dressed In the
beat to provoke attentions Is scarce-:
ly fair to mankind. Many a gallant
fellow would gladly do a month in
jail for the privilege of being arrested
by a pretty woman. On the whole,1
we feel that the mashing squad will'
be a failure. No self-respecting
young woman can work on it and fail
to catch her share of mashers.
Everyone knows that there are plenty
of them abroad. If the lady falls to
bring some in, she lays herself open
to the charge of being unattractive.
If she is too attractive she 'becomes
an unwarrantable provocation to law
breaking. When a lady snoops to
conquer she loses the respect of hon
est men.
A railroad meeting will be held to
night (Tuesday) in the Nauvoo coun
cil rooms and to which business men,
property owners and farmers of thu
vicinity are invited and .urgently re
quested to attend and speak out in
meeting and show cause why Nauvoo
should not get the proposed interur
ban line from Ft. Madison to Nauvoo
without delay. Mr. H. S. Payne of
Ft. Madison has again taken up the
burden of soliciting stock for the
proposed road. There were seven
men of Nauvoo who sobecrfbed $1,
