THE CAPE WEEKLY TRIBUNE, CAPE GIRARDEAU, MISSOURI
THE GAPE WEEKLY TRIBUNE AND THE CAPE COUNTY HERALD. Every Friday by "r: THE CAPE GIRARDEAU PUBLISHING COMPANY. APPLICATION FOIi KXTttY AS SECOND CLASS MATTER AT THE POST OFFICE AT CAPE CilHARDEAU, MO.. PENDING. ONE DOLLAR PER YEAR IN ADVANCE CORNERING THE COTTON CROP. The plans of the Kentucky men to buy up all of the cotton in this terri- lory, as outlined in a news story appearing on another page of today's Tribune, is evidence that these financiers do not expect the European war 'o continue jnuch longer. It was predicted when the war began that it would end before the severe winter weather came, and men of influence who are familiar with condi tions in Europe, still cling to that belief. If the war should end soon cot ion would be in great demand just as will all other products from which clothing can be made. The Kentucky men are undoubtedly endeavoring to effect a corner on cotton, and if such a .scheme could ever be looked upon with favor it is just now. Men who control the money market in this country have always i-liown a tendency to limit the amount in circulation when a real crisis arose. And that is one reason why a great many people have always looked upon the plutocratic interest as being more of a menace than an asset to the ration. But to bring on hard times by refusing to invest in crops seems like bad judgment as well as almost criminal. Men who refuse to circulate their money naturally s-tore it up somewhere, and the man who visits in cotton, wheat and corn is just as safe as hewho hoardes it. By buying cotton now, the Kentuckians not only render great assist ance to the grower and the small merchant who depends upon the producer but it is like casting broad upon the water. These investors will get their money back and they will get it back ten fold. When the war is over cotton will be in greater demand than it has ever been before. And prices are fixed by the demand. And although the Kentucky tobacco men may be preparing for a golden harvest by buying up the cotton, no one will regret to see them garner it. When 1h; war is over there will be more business than this country, knows what to do with, but the problem pust at present is, how can the pillars in this ci.unuy be induced to work now and lessen the rush that will follow the war? The Kentucky mm are doing the right thing, and if big business a'! over iho country would follow the example set by the blue grass state, the factories and mills would be running as they never did before. A TRAGEDY AND ITS LESSON. The tragedy enacted upon the streets of Cane Girardeau Sunday shows ii'.w easily trivial things may assume serious proportions. A piece of pie l iaised th siM h.iiS, if not fatal injury of a man who is beloved by those who know him. Mr. Taylor, who wounded Mr. Freeman, also is well-known and has been pr:i ii'i ntiy connected in this city for many years. It is needles:; to say that both men now regret that they did net make coi.ce.ssien.-!, but h Is too late. . Yet this shooting should serve as a lesson to "others. Shootings never occur without weapons, and those whose duties kt p them armed, hi. u'.d make it a practice to use them only on criminals. The participants in Sunday's tragedy had been friends. The shooting, h refer;, was not duo to malice. It was simply a case of too much tem- ,. While the community will wait and patiently hope for Mr. Freeman's i-i - wry, it will uU-. sympathize with Mr. Taylor. GROWING CAPE GIRARDEAU. Cape Girardeau h is now about one hundred and fifty buildings that v.v-re not here this time last year. By the close of 1914 probably fifty more will ith' r be under obstruction or finished. In proportion to its population this civ is outgrowii.g St. Louis, andf its growth this year is no better than it was last year or the year before that. Cap- Girardeau is growing because it has th:: location and the kind of people who make a city. The outlook for next y?ar is as rosy as the pros perous year that have gone by. Every season a new subdivision is opened and filled with houses. Next spring building will in all probability begin in the extreme southern part of the city. Thv tract of ground which Louis Houck will sell this month is one of the most desirable that has been opened for residtential purposes in a long time. It contains enough ground to make small town and the contour of thlup.d makes it an ideal location for homes. Therefore Cape Girardeau may prepare to watch its southern extremity grow. A KING'S UNTARNISHED RECORD. A politician once said: "If you can't beat the other party, jine 'em." That teems like good advice to the Belgians just now. They started out to erase Germany from the map, but if all reports are tme, a perfect picture of Belgium just now would resemble a piece of Swiss cheese. When the Germans began their assault on the city of Antwerp, accord ing to the reports, they were firing 200 of the largest siege guns made. Each of these threw twenty projectiles a minute, and therefore the total number of shells hurled into Antwerp was 210,000 a minute, or 3,360,000 every twenty-four hours. V.'c do not criticize King Albert for hot-footing it out of town. When a big city is reduced to a hole in the ground, it is time for its residents to : peed up, and when it comes to running, an ordinary human being has r.-uhhig on a king. Albert took or. speed every mile after leaving Antwerp, according to the off.cial time-keeper, and when he reached Ghent he was running so fast that he couldn't .stop, so he just sprinted right through the town and on to OsteP'l. The Kaiser, faithful to his love of the chase, even in times of war, ordered a few thousand of his speediest warriors to pursue the king. These soldiers lef i Antwerp fcr Ghent on tip top speed, but when they reached that city Albert had outdistanced Ahem and was not even visible through a powerful field glass. It therefore became necessary for the Germans to take charge of Ghent and give the city a thorough frisking. But Al was not there. Then the second lap of the race began. When the soldiers reached Ostend ti'"y found the King had been there long enough to throw up improvised breastworks and install an army behind them. The Germans were com pelled to pause a few minutes to batter down these home-made fortifica tion, and this afforded Albert time to escape from the city on the other side and generate enough speeel to safely elude his pursuers. The Kaiser's soldiers will take Ostend today, but they'll not catch Albert. Wrc are not familiar enough with a Jung's movements to even speculate on his whereabouts, but we know that w herevr he is, he is still running. The Germans may outwind AI or run him down by sheer speed, but when h-' becomes a German possession, the Kaiser will have to admit that king or no king, that boy can go some. - - r HONOR VIRTUE AND TRUTH. By Eugene C. Dolson. How well to impress their meaning In the pliant mind of youth These words of beautiful import: Honor, virtue and truth. And best, I think, is the mother Who would fain this wealth impart, Truth and virtue and honor, For guidance of each child-heart. Truth and virtue and honor These are the gems of earth; Promise of future manhood, Warrant of manly worth. Hyman Caldwell of Caruthersville, is in the city on business stopping with his brother, Ike Ca'dwell and family. Miss Mary and Otto Kochtitky left Monday for Maiden, were they will at tend the marriage of tho;r brother, Wade Kochtitzky, and Miss Ruth Stokes, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Stokes, which will tuke place Wednesday evening, October 11 i he home of tho bride's parents. Tne wed ding will be a quiet affair, only the immediate family of the briday party being present, but there will be a re ception afterwarels, for which about one hundred invitations have been issued. Mr. and Mrs. A. R. Byrd of St. Louis, and Mr. and Mrs. Otto Kochtitzky of this city, parents of the groom, will leave Tuesday for Malelen. Mrs. Max Kocck had r. few friends in for careb Monday evening in honor of her Mother, Mrs. O. E. Forster. The guests of the evening were Mesdames P. O. Hoch, H. C. Wasem, Wm. II. Harrison. Quite a delightful evening was passed in enjoying a great game of Bridge. Mrs. William A. O'Brien will enter tain the Bridge club Tuesday after noon at her apartment on Frederick street. Mrs. Kelward Rozier of Farmington, is visiting her daughter, Mrs. P. B. Leming. Mrs. Thomas Fitzpatrick left Mon day morning for St. Louis and from there will iournev to her home at Shrevcport, La. Mrs. Fitzpatrick has been visiting her mother, Mrs. W. T Wilson for the past three weeks and was the guest of honor at many social affairs during her stay. Miss Marjorie Post is expected home today from the east, where she has been enjoying the summer months The Christ Church Guild will meet today with Mrs. N. C. Weiler at her home on South Spanish street. Arthur Koerner arrived from St. Louis Monday, coming down for a visit with his wife and baby, who have been spending several weeks with Mrs. Koerner's mother, Mrs. Louis Bert ling. They will return to their home Wednesday. E. M. Strong and family were in the city Monday ,the guests of Mr. and Mrs. Dan Heard of South Sprigg street. The U. D. C. had a well attended meeting Monelay afternoon at the resi dence of Mrs. William Medley, the hostess of the day bcinc Mrs. W. T Wilson. N. S. Weiler and Mis. .Med ley. The local chapter sent a nice sum to the Kentucky State Chapter, as their part in the Jefferson Davis Memorial Fund, and also voted to purchase a ba'e jf cotton, giving their small assistance in the. present serious conditions in the so ith among the cot ton growers. An interesting feature of the meeting was the a .dress by Rev. J. J. Clopton, on Southern lead ership. Rev. Clopton has written sev eral well known art". -es ewi the s jj'h and its generals, which arc most in teresting, as he, b?ing a Virginian, ard residing in Richmond for many. .oprs, is thoroughly vamiliar wiih the scenes and the'- horoej, an 1 ean lalk with truth and filing on tr.is splendid subject. The local chapter .f tlw V. L C. has decided on u '.iou'1 plan .i wh'ch to help the cotton growers of H e south, and on Hidlov Veil they v:;l give a Cotton Ball. At thi., ball the ladies attending will wear t often gowns, no one bemg allowed to enter in any other costunv. Ite gcr.tiei .'.en's part in the dress of the evening v. ill be the cotton tic wuich they will le required to wear. Further plans for the ball have not boon ma'le, but the U. D. C. will hold a special meeting Wednesday afternoon at which time they will complete thi arrangements for the affair, ar.d a f armal announce ment will b'1 maele after that. Know ing the s.'.rious conditions which pre vail at the. preccnt in the Southern States, the women th.v country over are prcvirg thir interest and patriot ism by jo:r.:i.g hands with the suffer ers, ard using vh'lr influence and ability in finding a market for this stupendous southern product and a re lief from the awful wrr.t which is predominating at tht; present time. So the U. D. C. have chesen this at tractive manner in adding their r.ame to the list of thousands of ther women, who are working for this worthy cause and undoubtedly they will have the support of the club women and their families throughout the city. No woman need despair this season because her favorite silks and velvets are unobtainable on account of the European war. American manufac turers have come valiantly to the rescue, and so beautiful and distin guished ara the materials now pre sented for selection fabrics woven and dyed right here in America that after the war is over it is quite safe to predict that these American ma trials will hold equal rank with im ported stuffs. Almost the moment war was de clared, chiffons, housselines and nets of foreign manufacture jumped in price, and women who had set their hearts on winter evening gowns made of these fabrics had a sinking of the heart, but it was speedily discovered that just as airy, just as beautiful ma terials, in colors as soft and exclusive could be obtained in the shops, and the march of winter fashions has not been one whit delayed as far as America is concerned. The friends of Mrs. Harry Rogers will be glad to learn that she has been removed from St. Francis hospital to the home of her mother, Mrs. Chris Schraeder, on Middle street very much improved, and a speedy recovery is hoped for by her physician. Mr. and Mrs. Mike Sullivan return ed Tuejday morning from their wed ding trip which they spent on the ranch at Brownwood, of Tom Baldwin, son of the well known aviator. They are comfortably settled at 14.. South. Spanish street, and will be glad to welcome their friends there. The St. Agues' Guild of the Epis copal church will meet this afternoon with the Misses Clopton at the par sonage. Chcrchez La Fcmme. A western iletective said in the smoking room at a San Francisco ho tel: "T locate the dishonest clerk, isolated the one who was chasing round in iaxicabs to roog gardens with young ladies." He shook his head and added: "A slip of a girl can make the stead iest man fall." The benefit performance given by the ladies of the Civic Improvement association Monday night at the Broadway thontcr attracted ejuite good crowd. The pictures at this pop ular show house always please their audiences, and the people are so ac customed to the management giving them the be; t there is in the moving picture line, a benefit performance is generally an assured success. Miss Nell Saupe of South Sprigg street, had a few friends in Monday evening in honor of her birthday an niversary. The time was passed in en joying cards and music, and later a tempting luncheon. Among the guests were Misses Meta, Tekla Schack, Messrs. Elmer and Oscar Schack and Irvin Saupe. Miss Marguerite Oliver is at pres ent enjoying a visit with friends at Richmond Virginia, and her Cap? friends will be glad to learn that she will be home the latter part of thi week. Miss Marguerite will be able to give many interesting narratives of her trip abroad during this sum mer, anel her experience in the war zone, and no doubt she will be (piitc busy answering cpiestions. Among the Cape society folks who will attend the wedding of Miss Ruth Stokesand Wade Kochtitzky at Mal elen Wednesday, are: Mr. anel Mrs. Al len Oliver, Misses Rose Leming and Ruth Glenn and Messrs. Benson Ilar elesty and Russell Pcarmcmt. This wedding thought quiet, will be one of the prominent social events of the season, as it unites two of the most popular members of both Maiden and Cape's social set. Miss Stokes will have as her maid of honor, her sister, Miss Roberta Stokes, and as her maids, Miss Mary Kochtitzky and Miss Laura Keller. Mr. Otto Kochtit zky will be the best man.

An unusually splendid game was played the honors going to Mrs. Robert Lam- kin and. Mrs. S. B. Hunter, and ne, a guest prize to Mrs. WM'am H. Hani son. Mrs. O'Brien is a charming and capable young matron, and the elabor ate luncheon served the gntsts at the close of the game, brought many pret ty compliments from the lad;ea pres ent. Those enjoying tne aiiernoon were Mesdames R. L. Lamkin, Iska Carmack, S. B. Hunter, Edward Ro zier, W. H. Harrison, J. P. Meyers, Williams Bryan; Misses Hazel Harri son, Alice Griffith, Marie Weber, Mary Wilson, Dorothy Bell. Mrs. P. B. Leming left Tuesday for St. Louis, where she will do her winter shopping. . .
