Warrant Their Civilization Is Simply Four Cen turies Behind Ours, Says Writer in Magazine. iREATrD AT POPLAR iOTl-L LAST SA tLRDAY j Aliened He Asked $2,000 Down ForSrvices Denies All Charges. Having offered to get a friend plac ed in draft class one freed from mil itary service for $5000, is the charge on which Claudo J. Bowman, a plum ber of Charleston, was arrested in a hotel at Poplar B!uff Saturday even ing, when ho called at the hotel to meet M. T. Lee, who, it is charged was to pay him $2,0C0 for the ser vices. Bowman was brought to the Cape Tuesday and is held in the city jail pending his release on bond, which was fixed at $2,000. His arrest was the result of the in vestigation made by Post Office In spector, W. I Kleinwachter, who it alleged has a letter in his posses s'on said to have been written by Bowman to Lee, in which he made the ofT r to get liim out of the draft for T,,000. The $2,000, which he was to receive last Saturday evening, was the cah sum said to be .paid down on the transaction, the federal offi cers say. Bowman was taken before United "!t?..tes Commissioner Kage Tuesday morning, but declined to make any statement. He was acc'ompanie'd by Prosecuting Attorney Ashby of Miss sainpi County, who is making an ef fort to have Bowman freed on a bond. His mother and several friends ar expected to arrive here today to fill the bond. When seen by a reporter for The Tribune at the city jail, Bowman flat ly donied the charges, on which he was arrested. He said he had writ ten no letter to Leo and that he n?ver made any offer to get him released from military servic?. lie said su h an offer on his rar would have been ridiculous, as ho knew of no way to have a man freed from draft ecrvicc. He said he had no influence in Char leston and never believed it possible to get anybody out of the draft: He admitted that he was in Poplar Bluff. He said, however, he had rone there to see about some plumb ing work on a church and was arrest d at the hotel Saturday evening, bv.t -Vnicd having had any dealings with Lea. Lee is a farmer and has been plac ed in Class one in the draft. Accord :ng to the information he gave the 'eleral authorities, he received a let ter from Bowman, March 18, iu which 3owman asked $5,0CO to have him re leased from the draft army. Leo fur. ther told the authorities, he had ranged to deposit $2,000 as the initial charge for Bowman's services, and that the remaining ?3,000 should be paid in installments. This is the first case of this kind in Southeast Missouri resulting in an arrest. Bowman will be held for trial in federal court during the Ap ril term, which convenes, April 8. I used to see a good deal of a Swer. j in Petrograd who lived with his Rus sian wife in a little Inside tenement over in the Viborg quarter and wroto long and very erudite articles in mi croscopic long-band for Stockholm so cialist newspaper, Arthur Kuhl writes in Collier's Weekly. A social demo crat himself, in the bewildering shift ing of political values, he had becom-. almost conservative. Realism was Li j strong point, and he never tired of smil- , ing satirically at. western attempts t explain the mysterious Russian espe cially attempts after the manner of Stephen Graham, always so much mor Russian than the Russians tuenistlve.--. "'Mysterious, mysticism, a separate destiny for the Slavs,' " he would qut satirically. "All foolishness! There"; nothing mysterious about Russia it s merely four centuries difference in civ ilizationthat's all." There was something, at least. I i what he said. Tolstoy's nonresistaii'-.' and his final renunciation of everything to go out into the winter night to met t his God; there was something of rao in this and not mere personal idiosyn crasy something more in the air o. this half-oriental land than it is i:i ours. Yet westerners often do forger, when considering Russia, that its vast uneducated majority are closer perhaps to the material life, the superstitions and prejudices of the sixteenth cvn tury, than to our own. When Shakes peare, borrowiug for his Roman mil. the crowds he saw about him in Eliza bethan London, described their li- nnd loutishness, and how they thiv.v their "greasy caps in nir," was he n t looking at a person in very much tl;. same stage of historical development as the Russian peasant of 1017?

He was 75 years old, and had been a resident of Cape Girar deau County more than half a cen tury. Mr. Fomkahl lingered more than five months. He was suffering from dropsy. About a month ago hia con dition seemed greatly improved, but he soon suffered a relapse which pro ved a fatal attack.

What we need, and need badly right now, is a tree commission hav ing absolute control of all street planting. The trees shoud be tuken away from the owners of abutting property. He should neither be held responsible for them nor allowed to touch them, any further tlinn any other resident of the eity. Why has the eity taken over street, curb and sidewalk, and. allowed a narrow strip oC private property to intervene? Why does the city partially control it? Is a divided interest and responsibility conducive to the best results? A study of our street planting quick ly bring an answer. N t one in a hundred is competent to choose -th" right tree for a street. The same per centage will care for tliL::i pi-.r. r!y. ami about the same number v, ill Hans on tin; sanu tree.

COUNTIES REPORT BIG CHOLERA LOSS Reports from several counties in Southeast Missouri on the spreading of hog cholera and the heavy loss of hogs due to this disease have convinc ed the farmers of the necessity of a st -ck law, County Farm Agent Seta Babccck said Saturday, when asked whether the disease had gained a hold in Cape Girardeau County. He de clared that very few cases, if any at all, could be found in this county. A tour through the county in con nection with the tree spraying demon strations, the county farm adviser said, had convinced him that the hog cholera had almost been wiped out in Cape Girardeau County. He inquired of farmers in all sections of the county, he said, and failed to find one whose porkers were attacked by this animal plague Since the enforcement of the stock law in Cape County, Babcock said, the spreading of the disease could be easi ly prevented in the event one farmer's Tho best methods to follow and the best crop to grow in or lr to rink' n small area !5ke a back yard protpr " tiie maximum amnnat of food for 11 family are discussed in a publication of the United St.it"s ilenarf P'.ept of agriculture.
