THE CAPE WEEKLY TRIBUNE AND CAPE COUNTY HERALD
Cause and Effort. j ! Llewellyn was a million man; lie always calmly tried, Before ho ventured, to inspect tlio ease from every side; He never leaped before he looked; ho never closed his eyes And blindly rushed to ruin in a fool ish enterpriKe; Yet all his days ho had to drudge; the chance was never there When ho had in his cautious way, found out that it was fair. Impulsiveness was Sniggloy's fault; with hopes that mounted high He rushed ahead at everything his fancy bade him try; He never sat around in doubt while other, braver men Went forth to take the chances which would not return again; Yet, ragged and borne down by debts, he mourned his hapless lot, Nor saw the folly that it was to act before ho thought. MOKAL. 'Tis .well to look before you leap; 'nought ventured nothing gained; The sky is high, the sea is deep; 'tis damp when it has rained. If you have a blue dining room and have some really good Japanese or Chinese porcelain, or china in blue and white, use it, and use nothing else, unless it be some interesting lit tle Japanese or Chinese knicknacks in brass a gong or a tiny idol per haps. Wedgewood is a beautiful plate rail decoration if it is used alone; but unfortunately, there are few who possess enough of it to furnish a whole plate rail. If modern pottery is used, it is well to choose the whole furnishing of the plate rail at once. There is a certain brown and cream colored ware in the market now that could be used effectively in the room where yellow or brown predominates. The ware is decorated with peasant scenes. There are many good designs in royal doulton of various sorts that can be chosen. Only they should be selected with a definite idea in mind of the other pieces with which they are to rank and of the room they are to decorate. O One of the prettiest affairs of the week was the euchre party given by Mrs. M. E. Hazen at her home on Middle street, in honor of her birth day anniversary. The guests of the afternoon looked most charming in their dainty lingerie frocks, and the beautiful roses and sweet peas which were used as decorations, made quite an attractive addition to the occasion. The highest scores of the game were made by Mrs. Strain, first; Mrs. Zats, second; Mrs. Parr, third and also lone hand. At the close of the game Mrs. Iiar.cn served a most delicious luncheon.

Warm weather is a dangerous per iod for children and all mothers dread the summer for their little ones. As the weather grows warmer and warmer, fewer and lighter should be worn by the baby. So many mothers have a mistaken idea that flannel bands must be kept around baby's abdomen, next to the skin, no matter what the weather. The treatment is not only wrong, but actually cruel.

LIGHTNING RODS GET I'NCLE SAM'S O. I'ncle Sam has given his official O. K. to the lightning rod. Answering a correspondent who had been beseiged by college boys selling lightning rods all summer, but who wanted the advice of the highest authority before purchasing. Secre tary of Agriculture Houston advised him that a good rod would do all the agents promised. "Do lightning rods really protect buildings." the correspondent asked. "Yes," the Secretary replied, "but . the rods must be of proper character, properly installed and properly ground ed." "In lightnii g rods on a builililing. ' increase the conger of being struck?" 1 the eoi respondent then asked. j "Yes," again replied the Secretary "but a properly roililed house may bo ' struck several times without injury, whereas a single stroke without the protection afforded by the rods may cause disaster." i j Secretary Houston, gives this ad- vice in the weekly letter to crop correspondents, issued under his diree-j tion. Ho advises farmers and others who want to know anything more on the subject of lightning rods to send j for Farmers' Bulletin No. 3t7, which department scientists agree is the last word on the subject. FEWER CATTLE MARKETED THAN HIRING LAST YEAR ED REGENHARDT IS COM). Left St. Louis to (Jet Cool And Now Has the Chills. Edward F. Kcgonhnrdt, I'nited States Marshal, whom William II. Taft dubbed the "lighthouse of Cape Girardeau," dropped down to the Cape from St. Louis a few days ago to cool off, and ho did it. The change in the temperature caused the marshal to be seized with a chill, and he is now confined to his bed in an effort to get warm. Mr. Regonhardt reached Capo Girar deau Sunday, and he made no effort to hide the fact that he was in search of a cool spot. He found one that ho thought was all ho was looking for, and ho removed his hat and took a seat. He soon discovered that the air was cooler than he had contracted for, and ho started to look for a stove. Before he could locate a rise in the temperature, he got on the outside of some ire cream, and the heat in his system dropped almost to freezing. He has been trying to get warm ever since, and yesterday he was seized with a chill. He will spend several days in an effort to warm up before returning to St. Louis, his physician said.

Thus far this year l.lO.IMHI fewer cattle have been marketed in Kansas City than in the same period in 1913, the re ceipts being the smallest of any simi lar period in twenty years. The de crease is attributed to the drouth in the Southwest last summer. Prices are the highest ever known for this month. The demand now, cattlemen and meat packers say, must bo supplied mostly from grass-fed cattle. Another crop of prime corn fed beeves cannot be made they say, until the corn crop of 1014 is available probably not sooner than the mid dle of November. If August prices for corn-fatted steers are as much higher than the July level as they were in 1012, next month will see prime beeves, bring ing tl a hundred pounds in Kansas City. Beeves of the sort mentioned sold here yesterday at $(1.85. Homer Lynn of Charleston spent Tuesday in the Cape vwiting friends. Oda Drum, of Sedgwick ville ing relatives in this city. is visit G. R.

Ill , hne 1 1 , The past week might aptly bo called the banner period of the year as far as prices and quality of the cattle offering was concerned. There were more strictly prime beeves on sale luring the week than there were at any period previous to this one. Prices were the highest of the year. Strictly good steers were in demand at all stages of the week and sold on a steady to strong basis. However, the runs were liberal and toward the middle of the week medium grades took a downward trend and closed about 10 to 15c lower, while common graucs wore i.i to ',c oil ami in some cases more. Some 1200-pound steers at 0 S5 were top for the week and also for the year. A generous sprinkling of steers sold in a range of $0 to O lid. Supply of heifers was moderate illirinn the week ami while sei-nral i i i , ..... .. , . to iii tien in iiiioe iiiauiy were oiiereil, I the grade was only up to the average. There was a strong demand for good quality heifers and they stdtl on a strong, active basis al all times. Some mixed steers ami ht-ifers at $0.(10, topped the butcher division ami several bunches cleared at $S.7,"i to 0.50. Medium to gootl grades, how ever, late in the week were slow ami closed about 1(1 to 1 5c lower, while common, grass heifers were 15 to 25e off. Just a moderate supply of covs was offered and all grades sold gootl to the middle of the week, when buyers started hammering i ilium classes with the result that they declined 1(1 to 15c, ami in places more. 'aimers and cutters were 10 to 15c lower. Bulls won- in rather generous supply and sold slow al at 15 to 25 declines. Calves were on the upturn throughout the week ami closed 50 to 75c higher, with a top of $10.(5. Mockers and feeders showed signs of firmness during the fore part of the week, but later on were draggy and closet! about steady. The same was true of slock cows anil heifers. Receipts in the quarantine division were liberal in volume, and came most ly from Texas. There were some good foil steers on sale during the week, but only a small offering of strictly good grassers was available. Prices held up well early in the period. but as the runs continued liberal. medium grades developed losses ami closed 15 to 25c lower. Bulk of the I fed classes were steady. Some fed steers sold at $S.50, a new record for the year, and others went at $S to K 4(1. Bulk of the best grassers sold at $7 to 7.S5.
