Impatient I, and discontent, My cares were all that I could see! "From dawn to dusk new tasks arose How blessed each one seems to-day! 'The plan farm duites! How I joy Here, safe, protected, dull, to stay! "The plenteous fields are stretching wide, The quiet village lies below, Ne rumor comes of pillage, want. There's no alarm of threatening foe! "Gay hollyhocks and by the wall, The" boughs with ripening fruit hang low, From younder oat field sounds the voice Of one whose fealty well I know! "God pity women oversea, Who husbands, son, must give to die! God make me thankful! They deser ved Iove, safety, peace, as much as I!"

Nine-tenths of the new fall hats are covered with velvet ,whuh prom ises to b enormously fashionable as a millinery fabric a covering fabric, at least for many hats covered with velvet are flower-trimmed or have smart bows or pleated ribboi. The feather-trimmed hats are almost in variably of velvet. For every early fall wear during the long stretch of warm weather which always comes during the Indian summer the taf feta hat is commended, and some of the new models are very alluring, and appear more to the average wo man than the heavier velvet hat, though the latter is being worn even now at midsummer by those who love to be in the very van of the mode Smart velvet hats in new fall shapes have already made their appearance at Newport and Bar Harbor, where they are wore with summer dresses of sheer material matched by white buttoned boots and parasols. A charming taffeta hat from Car oline Reboux is of marine blue taffeta with a trimming bow of marine blue moire ribbon. The hat is scarcely more than a skull cap, with an inch high brim standing up around the edge. It is perched on one side, while a the left the waves of the hair are fully revealed. On this tiny taf feta ha is balanced the enormous ribbon bow, which is softly arranged almost to covetr the crown, the wired loops and ends standing out at the sides. The bow measures 25 inches from tip to tip and is of moire ribbon 9 inches wide. One thing has been made certain by advancing military news from Paris, the fall hat will bo small. Per haps larger hats will appear by mid- season they are wearing some now in Paris but there is no indication of it in the early models; small, smart and rather pertly balanced on the head is the hat the fashionably dress ed woman will effect with her tail- lour. The smallness of the new shapes, however, is in the brim only. Crowns are large or appear to be large in comparison with the tiny brim which often just forms a rim around the edge of the hat. And the plain, un broken crown is completely out of fashion. All of the new hats of au thoritative designs have crowns laid in pleats, shirred in gathers or drap ped in some artful manner or other so that one side of the hat is talle than the other. The day of the blocked felt hat is passed for the woman who dresses modishly. Undoubtedly the millinery departments will have block ed felt hats by the dozens for popular sellings, but they will not be the hats selected by exclusive folks, i.nd though many of the French models include fine soft felt in their make up, the felt is invariably combined with velvet or silk in some sort of draped effect. Of course, these drap ed hats are all built over frames usual ly or buckram wired into shape, and in the last yea ror two the business of making and selling hat frames has become an important feature of every retail millinery department.

Miss Wilburn's basket weaving c!as at the Normal has a display on at present that will be well worth the trip to the school to see. Baskets of i ... . ! every shape and size and the dureren, manners of weaving them are about the room, giving one a surprise as to what a fascinating art this is, w'th such beautiful and effective results. Under Miss Wilburn's excellent in- struction, quite a large class has been seen each week busily engaged in this interesting work, and not only the school girls find time for these lessons, but a number of the society matrons and girls also have taken an active interest in basket making, with some exceedingly clever results. Miss Esther Folley departed on the Steamer Cape Girardeau Tuesday for St. Louis. She will meet Miss Luc 'e Arnold of Benton there, and they will journey to St. Paul, through Canada to Vancoover taking the boat there for Seattle. From Seattle they will continue south to California stopping at San Francisco and Lo sAngelos for two weeks.

A splendid audience greeted the fair ac tresses and showed their delight the play and its characters by their continual applauding. The members were greatly pleased with the finan cial success of the play, also, which assisted them in adding quite auoat little sum to their treasury. o The recital that was to have been given Tuesday morning by the pupils of Miss Elizabeth Lawson, at the Nor mal Auditorium was postponed until this morning until 10 o'clock. o Mr. and Mrs. L.

FRISCO EMPLOYES PLAY BALL The I'risoo machinists and boiler makers of this city were relieved from their duties Saturday afternoon giv ing the buys an opportunity to settle! the question of the superiority of their respective bull teams. At the noon hour arrangements , were made to piny the deciding name. At about one o'clock in the afternoon 1 the two teams met on the diamond at the Fair Grounds prepared to maintain the honor of the crafts to which they belonged. The ma chinists' line-up was as follows, Behy mer catch; Rieck, pitch,Kaempher first-base; Fulbright, short; Franck second base; Lynch, third-base; John Kraft, right field; Clyde McDonald, center fiefd, Craig, left field. The boiler makers lineup was as follows: Meyer, catch, Alexander, pitch, Wilier, first base; Margraves, short, Grimes, second base; Ruh, third base, Stone, center; Hale, left field; Hainan, right field.

Franck distinguished himself, being the only man to make a three-base hit during the game. AD SWAMPS HIS STORE New York Company Finds The Tri bune Gets the Business. An advertisement in The Tribune Saturday morning more than doubled the sales of the New York Clothing Store, which is located at 127 Main street. The business of that store Saturday was the biggest since the store opened. "I just made on investigation to see where all of the people came from," said Louis Hub, the manager last night. "How did you know I had these bargains to offer?" was the question asked every visitor by Mr. Hub. "I was astounded to know that one ad in The Tribune could bring such results," said Mr. Hubb. "The returns from your paper were the greatest I ever saw, and I have been in the clothing business a long time. "I don't believe The Tribune has an enemy among the class of people who patronize the stores of Cape Oirardeau. Each visitor to the store not only stated that he read the ad in The Tribune, but he took occasion to say that it was the best paper the city ever had. "My sales today convinced me that I will have to keep an ad in your paper. Because The Tribune certainly does deliver the goods." APOPLEXY KILLS P. H. HOOK, Arises from Bed and Dies Tying His Shoe. P. H. Hook died at his home at 323 Themis street, yesterday morning at about nine o'clock. His death was sudden and was the result of a stroke of apoplexy with which he was seized at five o'clock in the morn ing.

TRADE UNDERTONE IS MUCH BETTER Foundation for Future Operation Created, Says Bank of Com merce Digest. St. Louis, Aug. 4. The August issue of the Digest of Trade Condi tions, issued by the National- Bank of Commerce says there is a decided ly healthier undertone in business, although real improvement is hardly more than noticeable. "Something has been created dur ing the last ninety days in the way of a foundation for future commercial and financial operations." is the state ment of the DigoHt. "The past nine ty days have been a rather Btrenuous period, as every man in business has been tested almost to the limit of his ability in devising ways and means of improving his own particu lar business. "The margin between cost and selling price has been narrowed, but with improving demand for all classes of commodities, from steel to sugar, the volume of trade may prove enough larger to partially offset, at least, the narrower margins of profit. "There is plenty of money in the country and there are indications that money will be loaned more freely on mortgages and securities of that class, which will mean that the money will finally find its way tinto com mercial channels." Bank Clearings Increased. Bank clearings for the principal cities showed an increase in June of 2 per cent over the corresponding month last year, according to the Digest. New York City clearings increased more than 1 per cent. Clearings outside of New York City for the first half of the year are only a fraction of 1 per cent below last year. Out of 160 cities eighty-four showed increases over last year. New financing for June was $7,000, 000 more than for June, 1013, while the total number of shares traded on the New York F.xehange did not quite reach $4,000,000, which was considerably less than half the numlx-r traded last year. Bond sales for June were "i3.000.0tM). an increase of r2,MM),(MM) over June, 1913. Business failures for June totaled 10.54 with liabilities of $45,000,000 compared with HMiO in June 1013, with liabilities of $17,000,000. The number of failures was smaller and the liabilities much greater, but the assets of the failed concerns were much heavier, leaving the net ex cess of liabilities over assets about i the san.e as that reported for firms ' t . :i: :..

Early reports on gross earnings for June indicate a slight improve ment, the decrease for railroads which have reported averaging 7 per cent. A few railroads show a decrease in gross of olny 4 per cent.
