Mra. Woodrow Wilson, wife o(, the nation's president, was buried Mon day at Myrtle Hill cemetery, Rome. Ga, Rain fell in torrents while the casket was being lowered into the grave, which is beside those of Mrs. Wilson’s father and mother, almost in sight of the house in which she lived as a girl. Simplicity marked the funeral of Mrs. Woodrow Wilson. In deference to the wishes of the president, the exercises were brief. There was a forty-five minute service at the First Presbyterian church, where Mrs. Wilson's father, Rev. D. Edward 8. Axson. was pastor for seventeen years, and an even shorter ceremony at Myrtle Hill cemetery. Rome, the girlhood home of Mrs. Wilson, awaited in sombre attire the arrival of the funeral train from Washington. Buildings in the busi ness district and many residence sec tions ware draped in black. Traffic was closed early on the streets through which the procession was to pass from the railway station to the church, and from the church to the cemetery. Special policemen and national guardsmen were on patrol. Because of the limited capacity of the church, only members of the family and close friends were invited to be present. On arrival of the fu neral train at 2:30 p. m., it was planned to go at once to the church. Two of the old hymns which were Mrs. Wilsons favorites as a girl were sung. Rev. Sylvester Beach of Princeton, N. J., and the local pastor Rev. D. G. G. Snyder, conducted the ceremonies. “BOB" COCHINS AT EXIRA A large number of Audubon peo ple beard Robt. G. Cousins on the lec ture platform at the Chautauqua at Exira last Saturday. All are unani mous in their opinion that his lecture was the greatest and grandest lec ture ever delivered in Audubon county. Mr. Cousins is reputed to be America’s ablest orator, and all who heard the distinguished lowan, are convinced that the reputation is well founded. Thereweremany others who had planned to go but at the last moment failed to secure transpora tion accomodations. The lecturer has been in lowa poli tics thirty years or more, and during that time served the second lowa District in Congress several terms. He is familiar with public men and public affairs. He is still a young man and will be heard from in the years to come. At the. close of the afternoon pro gram Mr. Cousins met a number of Audubon county people whom h* knew while living in this city uncle Ed. B. Cousins. He spent Sat urday night and Sunday in Audubon, leaving Monday morning Tor Storm Lake where- be appeared at the Chau tauqua Tuesday afternoon GOV. CLARKE AT JACKSON VILEE Geo. W. Clarke, governor at the great state of lowa, was the principal speaker at the big farmers picnic at Jacksonville last Saturday afternoon. Although a very busy season for the farmers, many were out to enjoy the picnic and to hear the Governor. Hon O. H. Jacobsen, of Kimballton who served in the last two sessions of the legislature, introduced the governor and when the speech was concluded a large number went to shake hands with lowa’s excellent chief executl/e. He made a very good impression with the voters and many who were luke warm in his support are now enthu siastically for him. The talk wts not a political one Those from Audubon who were present said all were great ly impressed with Mr. Clarke's earn estness and his honest endeavor to meet present conditions. SCHOOL TIME !!

FOR SALE RINGLING DAY ALMOST HERE Big Circus Bound This Way on Five Great Trains Loaded With Wonders. Children are now on their best be havior in anticipation of a real holi day treat on August 18 when Ring ling Brothers’ Worlds’ Greatest Shows will exhibit in At lantic. It is expected that Audubon will send more than its usual number of “sawduet fans” to welcome this popular circus. Ringling Brothers promise many novelities and Innovations and a “bigger and better everything” is the slogan. Preceding the regular circus performance the new spect acle of Solomon and the Queen of Sheba"will be enacted on the largest stage in the world. This mammonth 1,250 character pageant cost $1,000,- 000 and the costumes, scenery and stage properties are said to be a rev elation in gorgeousness. Among the 385 arenlc acts are scores of eques trians including the Lloyds, famous English riders, the Borsinis, rolling globe artists; the Balkanis. whirl wind riders from the Balkan moun tains; the five highest perch acts ever presented; boxing and wrestling kangaroos; five herds of trick ele phants; 50 clowns, 20 families of aerialtsts and a magnificent horse show and speed tournament. The menagerie is larger and more com plete than ever before exhibited in America. A free street parade will be given on the morning of show day. ASK FOR HIS RETURN At the last quarterly conference of the Methodist Episcopal church, held on Monday, Rev. A. A. Walburn, who has been the pastor for the past year, was requested to be returned to this charge for another year. During a part of the year just past the health of Mr. Walburn has not been the best, at times, which hindered very much in his work. During the time he has done much of foundation work which will bear fruit in time to come, but together with this much has been done to advance the cause which is now in evidence. Mr. Walburn is what you might term a shirt sleeve preacher. He is just common, every day in his manners, and the simple fact that you do not wear the best of clothes for any reason does not affect him one bit, and he is just as willing to grasp your hand in good fellowship in overalls as in broadcloth. His sermons are direct and to the point —no half measures or dodges go— just the plain gospel truth. Should the conference return him to Ham burg for another year, we feel it will be a good move both for the church and the town in general.—Hamburg Reporter. TO DELINQUENT SUBSCRIBERS We have during the past been very lenient with our delinquent sub scribers. most all of whom were for mer residents of Audubon but are now scattered to the four winds of the earth, and reside in the various states of the union. During the past week we have sent a statement of account to all those who are in ar rears and we hope that they will be kind enough to make a remittance by return mail. Unless a remittance is promptly mailed, their names will be dropped from our subscription list and the account placed in the hands of attorneys ’ for collection. We have been, at heavy expense during the past summer installing new machinery, and we hope our readers have appreciated the effort we have made to give them more live reading matter than any other news paper published in Audubon county. In order to continue to publish a good live newspaper, we must have money. By giving this matter prompt attention, our readers will confer a great favor on yours truly. 'TIS 12 O’CLOCK—GOOD-NIGHT A jolly bunch of the Audubon young folks, known as the Picnic Club, choose Exira and the Chautau qua Thursday night as the scene of another good time. Unusual weather conditions favored the trip and the machines had no mishaps on the road. Picnic supper was spread in the park in time to enter Chautauqua but a short time after the opening number. The big band seemed to be enjoyed by all, though it is rumored that some people got a liitle too hi larious for Audubon's good reputa tion. Upon returning to Audubon the joy-riders found it inviting to drive 'round via Ross to strike the road home. The remains of several water melons testify to the fact that the moon witnessed one grand pow-wow before midnight found them back in town. SPECIAL FIRE POLICE Last Thursday night a meeting of the fire department was held at the fire hall and the regular business at tended to. During the recent fire in the Howald block it was almost im possible for the members of the fire department to reach the seat of the fire, because of too large a crowd, not only of small boys, but grown people standing in the way, greatly hamper ing the fire boys in the performance of their duty. During the meeting, the matter of appointing tour special police officers to keep back crowds at fires was brought up, and decided upon. The following officers were appointed and will draw the same pay that the firemen receive: Gene Johnson, H. A. Northup, Chas. Sun berg and Geo. Townsend. When ap proached by any of these officers dur ing a fire, it is hoped that no one will take offense as it is done for the betterment of the citys welfare. MARRIED AT CARROLL Ray Faust, a son of Mr. and Mrs. George Faust of Exira and Mias Edna Wells, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Wells of Audubon went to Car roll Saturday where on Monday morning at 10:30 o’clock they were united in marriage by a Justice of the Peace. Mr. Faust is employed by E. E. Bailey as a painter, and with his wife will make their home in Audubon at the Arlington Hotel. Their many friends will wish them every success in life. They returned to Audubon Monday on the evening train. We are informed that Jim Nelson of Carroll an Miss Marie Faust of Exira were married ' ' the same time. AUDUBON, IOWA THURSDAY, AUGUST 13, 1914 WERE STOPPED AT NEW YORK Peter Petersen and Jeppe Nelson of Fiscus who had planned a trip to Denmark and expected to set sail for the land of their nativity thefore part of the month, found on reaching New York that the “New Fatherland,” on which they had secured passage, would not sail on account of war con ditions in Europe. This news in a measure, was dis appointing. but inasmuch as neither of the gentlemen cared to enlist in any of the armies, they decided it would be best for them to postpone their trip indefinitely. They did not propose to come back, to Audubon county, however, without seeing at least a part of "America First." The two gentlemen spent consider able time sight seeing in New York City, going out to see the Statute of Liberty and a boat ride up the Hud son river. They went from New York to Washington. D. C., and were more than delighted with the many interesting sights at the Nations Capitol. They went ta the office of Congressman Green but he was out of -the city, so his secretary, Chas. Ketchum took them in charge. The Smithsonian Institute, the Mint, the Navy Yards and the Congressional Library were of special interest to the visitors. Mr. Nelson served in the navy in Denmark some 30 years ago and of course the Navy Yards was of interest to him. They were privileged to board the president's yacht and were accorded many other privileges through the courtesy of Mr. Ketchum. While in the office yesterday, Mr. Nelson stated that they enoyed the trip in the east almost as well as they would have enjoyed the trip abroad, and though they did not get to sail on the “New Fatherland.” they were on the big ship and got to see what a magnificent ship it was. Mr. Petersen and Mr. Nelson stopp ed at various other points of interest on their return home, such as going to Mt. Vernon, the home of Geo. Washington, Georgetown, National Cemetery and many points of interest around Pittsburg. Not having been able to sail, the amount of money paid for their steamship tickets, which they bought through F. W. Smith, will be refunded to them. Newspaper readers have seen much of the word ”mobiliz»tfon” during the past week, and there probably have been few who hive had any thing more than a very' hazy idea of what the word signifies. The Brook lyn Eagle gives the following ex planation: “Just what does mobilization mean? This question, more than any other, has been on the lips of readers of war news during the past week. The dispatches have been full of assertions like the following: If Russia mobilizes. Germany will de clare war.” German mobilization to be followed by French invasion.’ But there has been no explanation why whatever action this military Jerm connotes, should be so provocative of inter-national disturbance. The fact is that mobilization is the step which must precede the first overt act of war and usually the mob ilization of an army is immediately followed by either a declaration of war or some overt act of war. Con sidered purely as a tecnlcal military term, mobilization means drawing to the different military units —battil- ion, battery or squadron—the num ber of reserves which brings it up to its -full war strength, but its signifi cance only becomes apparent in con sidering everything that this involves. “In a country like Germany, with a military machine of gigantic pro portions, .fired, oiled, with steam in the boilers, ready to respond to the touch of a lever at the Kaiser's word ordering moblization—and he alone is authorized to give it—sets into mo tion 2.000,000 separate units.” A beautiful home wedding occured at Lake View, lowa, on Thursday, Aug. 6, at three o'clock when Miss Etta Spencer, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Geo. R. Spencer, formerly resi dents of Audubon county was married to Charles E. Day. Promptly at 3:00 o'clock Miss Mamie Spencer, niece of the bride took her place at the piano and play ed a beautiful introductory piece, af ter which Miss Bertha Day, sister of the bride groom sang a solo accom panied by Mamie Spencer. During the beautiful ring ceremony of the M. E. church. Miss Rose Weighton of this city played very softly on the piano and also throughout the con gratulations. The home was decorat ed with English Jasmine and sweet peas, the color scheme being pink and white. The bride was dressed in a lovely white dress with touches of pink on it, while the groom wore blue serge. Dainty refreshments were served by four young ladles also dressed in pink and white. The same evening the happy couple boarded the train for Fort Dodge on their way to Wisconsin where thex will visit Mr. Day’s sister re turning to Early, lowa, in time for Mr. Day to take up his work as Sup erintendent of the public schools on Sept. 7th. CANNING FACTORY RUNNING The Audubon Canning Company commenced operations in their fac tory last Monday noon, with a good sized force. The corn is in splendid condition and from all indications, the pack this year will be the largest and of the best quality since the factory has been running under the present management. Mr Loveland is proving to be the right man in the right place and during the next six weeks he will have a big force at work day and night. Audubon is proud of this splendid business enter prise. SCHOOL OPENS SEPTEMBER 7th The local schools will begin their year's work on Monday, September 7th. As usual, there will be quite a large number of rural pupils in the school, and some of these will care to work for their room or their board, or will at least care to earn something that will help them in car ing for these items of expense. Any one desiring a pupil to help with house work or to tak’i care of a fur nace or to do any other kind of odd Jobs in 'stores, etc., should phone or see Mr. Johansen.

London, Aug. 12.—(5:45 p. m.) —A dispatch from Rome to the Cen tral News says the Corriere d'ltalla publishes a telegram from the fron tier stating that an Austrian cavalry brigade has been exterminated on the Austria-Russian frontier. The Austrian cavalrymen are said to have attacked the Cossacks, who were accompanied by artillery. They were unable to hold their own and tried to get back across the frontier, but rain had fallen and the men and horses were caught in the marshy ground and shot down until not a man remained alive. ' FALLS FROM WAGON AND IS SERIOUSLY INJURED A distressing accident took place yesterday afternoon at the home of Cassie Root, two and a half miles northwest of Larland when Ivan Root, the 16 year old son fell from a load of small grain he was hauling from the field to the threshing ma chine. Young Root was crossing a little ravine with the load of grain. In crossing this ravine he lost his bal ance and fell off the load onto the horses. This frightened the team and the horses ran away. The lad fell under the wagon which passed over his body crushing three ribs, breaking a bone back of the ear and causing other serious bruises. Last night he was still in a serious con dition, but this morning he is some what improved and the attending physician has hopes of his recovery unless the injuries should bring on a paralized condition. FELL FROM BARN THIS MORNING Chris Petersen, a carpenter fell from the roof of the new barn that is being built on the Wm. McLeran farm, one and a half miles west of town early this morning. He with another carpenter were shingling the roof when the scaffolding broke. Pet ersen was the only one to fall to the ground and it is difficult to determine how seriously he was injured. A physician was called to attend the injured man. No bones are broken but he may have sustained internal injuries. , PROMINENT COUPLE MARRIED Last Saturday at the home of Rev. E. B Cousins, Nels C. Christensen and Miss Edna Waiters were united in marriage by the reverend gentle man.

Sunday afternoon on the local dia raond. the Elk Horn base hath team defeated Audubon, in a well played and clean game of base ball. A fair sized crowd witnessed the game, quite a number accompanying the visiting team. The Audubon team was unable to place the ball any where else but in the hands of the op posing team. The feature play of the game was a trippie one pulled off by Booten, when he caught a fly ball, stepped on Ist base, retiring the re turning runner from second and then throwing the ball to 2nd base, retir ing the returning runner from 3rd. The game was well played by both teams and the fans were all satisfied. Coon Rapids will play here next Sunday.

B. & Q. at Galesburg, 111., had met with an accident while switching in the yards and had suffered the loss of a leg. They immediately went to Galesburg to be at the bedside of the injured brother whose recovery was consider ed very doubtful.

Fullerton, Super visor of music in the State Teachers College at Cedar Falls, was in Aud ubon lust Saturday calling upon the County Superintendent and others in the interest of having a demonstra tion school in this county. This is a new departure by the Teachers College which has been tried out in a number of rural schools in the vicinity of Cedar Falls during the past year with very satisfactory re sults. The purpose of the faculty is to establish one in each county in our state. The plan followed is to send a well-trained teacher to the school that may be selected, the college paying whatever it is necessary to add to the wages of the district to secure one who is thoroughly prepar ed to do first class work. The school will be visited at intervals by an ex pert from the college to assist in bringing the work to the highest grade of efficiency so that tt may be a worthy example to follow by other teachers and schools in the county. Miss Stearns took Mr. Fullerton and A. C. Ross out to Douglas town ship to see a fine modern school building just completed, and they were delighted with its arrangement and construction. In its seating, heating, lighting and convenience it seems to be without criticism. It surely is a long way from the log house and slab seats of Ye Olden time. FOR HALE NOTICE I will sell my 80 acre improved farm, all hog tight fence, all seeded except 27 acres located one mile northwest of Audubon. This is one of the best farms in this county.
