THE WEEKLY TRIBUNE AND CAPE COUNTY HERALD, FRIDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 13, 1914.
THE CAPE WEEKLY TRIBUNE "AND THE CAPE COUNTY .HERALD . Every Friday by V THE CAPE GIRARDEAU PUBLISHING COMPANY. APPLICATION FOB ENTRY A8 SECOND CLASS MATTER AT THE POST OFFICE AT CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO., tEJUNJXQ. . ONE DOLLAR PER AUTUMN. Dear old aukmn, it is with us, Tripping over dell and lea; ' Wilting blossoms by the million Just where summer used to be. Jessamines and all the astors They have vanished with .the wren And will not return till springtime . Calls them from their graves again. Indian summer, blessed season. How it makes all nature sigh ! Skipping over field and woodland. Pausing just to sanctify. Sassafras is burning crimson, Golden are the fields of corn; Pjurple wild grapes hang in clusters, Dripping dew drops every morn. Oh, how mighty is our Maker, Guarding over everything! Now it's autumn, then comes winter, Which must give THE BLYTHESVILLE TRAIN. The efforts that are being made to change the schedule of the Blythes ville train would be little short of disastrous to the merchants. It would be far more advantageous if another train could be brought into Cape Girardeau from another direction, arriving and departing on the Blythesville schedule. The Frisco service on the Blythesville line is excellent so far as the mer chants and the buyers are concerned. The train's arrival here at 11 o'clock in the morning is convenient to people who live along the line and shop in Cape Girardeau It departs at 3 o'clock, which gives visitors four hours to do their purchasing. There is no train ente.ing this city that is more beneficial to the mer chants than the Frisco running to and from Blythesville. To change the schedule so that the train arrives at 6 o'clock in the evening and departs at 7 in the morning, would either drive people who now shop here to other cities or it would make expeditions to Cape Girardeau exceedingly incon venient. In addition to changing the schedule on the Blythesville line, the Frisco is to be asked to put on another train that will penetrate a more populous region, with Cape Girardeau as the terminus. This request would be rejected, especially just now. Railroads all over the country are retrenching, and the Frisco is still in the hands of receivers. Mr. Nixon, receiver and operator of the road, knows too much about the busi ness to incumber that line with more burdens. It is out of the question to expect the Frisco to put on another train just new. Of course, it would be beneficial to this city, and no doubt is an event o? the future, but not at present. The Blythesville train is rendering good service and it brings trade to this city every day. But if those who would change the schedule of this train cm have one like they propose put on, they ought to do that first and then arrange new hours for Blythesville. If they cannot induce the Frisco to add another train, they should let well enough be. TOM JUDEN AND HARA-KIRI. If the Democratic party succeeds in appointing Thomas J. Juden Post master of Cape Girardeau, it will not be necessary for that party to nominate county tickets in the future. Mr. Juden was defeated for Committeeman in the primaries without an opponent. The Democrats simply wrote the name cf James A. Kinder on the ticket, and enough of them'did it to .defeat' Mr. juden. That proves how popular Mr. Juden is among Democrats. Mr. Juden has made an excellent court clerk, but he is probably the most unpopular man in this county. For the Democrats to appoint him Postmaster of Cape Gir ardeau, would simply mean that the Democratic party had voluntarily corn nutted hara-kiri. VEST'S EULOGY OF A DOG. At the request of a reader of The Tribune, we are reproducing herewith the famous eulogy of a dog, delivered by the late United States Senator Geo. G. Vest. This speech was delivered at a trial of a suit to recover damages for the death of a Missouri dog, which had been killed by a farmer. Senator Vest prosecuted the case. His speech was as follows: Gentlemen of the Jury: The best friend a man has in this world may turn against him and become his enemy. His son or daughter, that he has reared with loving care, may prove ungrateful. - Those who are nearest and dearest to us, those whom we trust with our happiness and our good name, may become traitors to their faith. The money that a man has he may lose. It flies away from him, perhaps when he needs it most. A man's reputation may be sacrificed in a moment of iil-considered action. The people who are prone to fall on their knees to do us honor when success is with us, may be the first to throw the stone of malice when failure settles its cloud upon our heads. The absolutely unselfish friend that a man can have in this selfish world, the one that never deserts him, the one that never proves ungrateful or treach erous, is his dog. Gentlemen of the Jury: A man's dog stands by him in prosperity and in poverty, in health and in sickness. He will sleep on the cold ground, where the wintry winds blow apd the snow drives fiercely, if only he can be near his master's side. He will kiss the hand that has no food to offer, he will lick the wounds and sores that come in encounters with the roughness of the world. He guards tHe sleep of his pauper master as if he were a prince. When all other friends desert, he remains. When riches take wings and reputation falls to pieces, he is as constant in his love as the sun in its journey through the heavens. If fortune drives the master forth, an outcast in the world, friendless and homeless, the faithful dog asks no higher privilege than that of accompanying to guard against danger, to fight against his enemies; and when the last scene of all comes, and death takes the master in its embrace, and his body is laid away in the cold ground, no matter if all other friends pursue their .way, there by his graveside will the noble dog be found, his head between his paws, his eyes sad but open in alert watchfulness, faithful and true even in death. WAR RECALLS LINCOLN'S LETTER. A Berlin mother, whose six sons went to the front when Germany de clared war on the Allies, has lost five of them. This sacrifice recalls vividly the letter written by Abraham Lincoln. fifty years ago this month to Mrs. Bixby, in Boston, Mass., who lost five sons on the battlefield in the great conCict between the North and the South. His letter, which seems particular ly appropriate at this time, follows: To Mrs. Bixby, Boston, Mass. Dear Madam: ' I have been shown in the files of the War Department a state ment of the Adjutant General of Massachusetts that you are the mother of five sons who have died gloriously on the field of tattle. ' I feel how weak and fruitless .must be any word of mine which . . should attempt to beguile you from the grief. of a loss. so over whelming. But I cannot refrain, from tendering you the consola tion that may be found in the thanks of the republic, they died to Save'.'' ' I pray that our Heavenly Father may assuage the anguish of " your bereavement, and leave you only the cherished memory of the loved and lost, and the solemn pride that must be yours to have1 laid so costly a sacrifice upon :the altar of freedom. Yours very sincerely and respectfully, A. LINCOLN. YEAR IN ADVANCE away to spring. J.P.W. GERMANY PREPARED FOR A LOKG.SEIGE Berlin Shows no Evidence of War Prices of Food Are : r " " Normal; 1 Berlin, Nov. 9 They still eat wheat bread in Berlin. Amusements proceed with little sign of abatement. Few posters to call men to arms are' in evi dence, and there are many able-bodied men on the etreets in civilian clothes. These" conditions, in striking contrast t othe situation in neutral Holland, where all people are compelled to eat bread that has a 75 per cent of ad mixture of rye, and where almost all walls are covered with official an nouncements relating to mobilization and the regulation of prices, were sources of wonderment to a corres pondent of the Associated Press, who has just arrived from constant scenes of war and its aftermath. That Germany is at war could not De gleaned from street impressions, though a person might speculate on the causes that have led to two con ditions. Everywhere one see large photographs of the Emperor, the Crown Prince and Generals von Hin denberg, von Beseler and other mili tary notables exhibited, as are cam paign lithographs i n the United States. There are other photographs of Emperor Francis Joseph and Aus trian Generals. The second condition is the poor state of the horses which do the .haul ing in the city. All good horses have been requisitioned for military pur poses, with the result that every horse able to keep moving is being urged to further, and often painful, effort. There is surprisingly few soldiers to be seen in the streets of the German capital. Now and then a column puts in an appearance cheerful, eager and usually bedecked with flowers off for the war. Beside the men are seen mothers, wives, sisters, sweethearts not so cheerful. But it seems to be contrary to some unwritten law to to show emotions in this business of going to tJie front, perhaps never to return. So, while the men hide their concern imder a cheerfulness that ap pears to be natural enough, the wom en belie their redened eyes with a smile and swallow hard as each talks to the man whom she accompanies to the train that will take him east or west either way a road to danger. The cafes are crowded to capacity; and many artists who are out of wprk represent cultailment of programs rather than total closing. A similar condition prevails among shop and fac tory employes, but in their case the percentage of unemploymcn i slower because of the men taken to the front. Official figures recently issued show that, with the progress of redistribut ing labor not yet completed, there were in Berlin only from 2 to 6 per cent more unemployed than normally, while in the case of certain trades, which require men to exceptionally good physique, there was a shortage of labor. ' The bills of fare in the Berlin hotels and restaurants may now be read by the German who knows no French. The "speisckarte" is no longer a "menu." -There has been little reduction in the quantity, and no deterioration in the quality of the food offered. Nor are the prices materially higher. Many of .the big restaurants have made no change whatever in their prices since the war began. "We must win," is the slogan of everybody in Berlin. To make this pos sible, everybody accepts resignedly whatever sacrifice has to be made. While the army has the hard work in the battle line, the women, including the Empress and the ladies of her court, knit socks, wristlets, gloves, sweaters, abdominal bands and calf warmers," Innumerable packages arc dispatch- Led to the front, containing mostly ci gars, small bottles of spirituous bev erages and chocalate, for whose nutri tious value the German soldier has the highest respect. Comment heard in the street, public places and official quarters is not such that one could say that the war is pop ular in Germany. That term would hardly describe the feeling. A better definition of the sentiment prevailing in all classes of Berlin's population and, it is claimed, the empire, is that the was is a very disagreeable busi ness, -which must be disposed of thor oughly and with whol?-heartedness. In the crowds may be seen many women in mourning. While the spirit of collecvity of the, Berliner is. such that the sight of them does not leave him unimpressed, itf also reminds him that what happened to pne today may: happen to another tomorrow. Press and public alike express this Spartan sentiment. ' , Berlin does not -seem to fear an in-, yasion by hostile air . craft. For this reason, no limition has been put on Street lighting, and electric signs glara and flash everywhere, which would; guide an .aviator for miles. .' A plenti ful supply of fuel has mad economy unnecessary. According to figures published in the Berliner Tageblatt, the German graia and potato crops are so large thjat even without the importation of foodstuffs, there is no danger for at. least n year to cornel The embargo, It is pointed out, has placed the entire harvest at Germany's disposal. Meas ures for the regulation of flour prices, so as not to exceed the normal figure Vrvl soon be taken. The slaughtering of calves has been limited, to prevent any unfavorable effect on the beef supply. Meat prices throughout Germany are declared to be normal. Owing to a general commandeering of horses and wagons, the streets -are not quite as clean as they were for merly. That, and .the conditions al ready referred to, are the only indi cation that Berlin is not in the midst of peace. There is so little excitement in the capital that even the war bul letins of the newspapers get but half the attention they do elsewhere. The United Daughters of the Con federacy, in convention at the Plant ers' Hotel Saturday, re-elected Mrs. Charles P. Hough of Jefferson City, State president; Mrs. C. B. Faris 4f Jefferson City, corresponding secre tary; Mrs. M. B. Proctor of Monroe City, treasurer; Mrs. Frank S.

Mrs. Robert Funkhouser of the St. Louis chapter, introduced a motion to the effect that a boy should be edu cated this year by the U. D. C. as well as two girls. There was a lengthy de bate on this motion, and it was finally decided to give some boy the scholar ship to the University of Missouri, if Central College, at Lexington, refused to give the same terms that the two other colleges Cottey at Nevada, and Christian, at Columbia had offered in their scholarships,'' ,-It was proved Saturday afternoon, at the convention of the United Daughters of the Confederacy, that women are as good if not better pol iticians than men, when the Commit tee on Revision of the Constitution and By-laws recommended and attain ed adoption of en amendment to the constitution, giving the larger chap ters more representation in the an nual State conventions. The Committee on Revision changed orily the last part of the clause and omitted the limitation of members of a chapter, thus n'lowing the larger chapters two arrl three more votes than ihey hare hr;d. The majority, led i-v Mrs. Jav. R Gantt. had or rrsed i his amendment i;nti the last minute, in committee. ?u: f.nally com promised. o - At the Buckingham Saturday night, the modern dances, together with the Virginia Reel, held sway the recep tion given by the U. 1 C. in the Rose Parlor of the club.
