The Women's Committee of the Council of Defense are starting a campaign to awaken the parents and the boys and girls of Cape Gir ardeau to a realization of the neces sity of the boys and girls getting back into school work this fall. Many of the older boys are employed in positions paying good money and un less pressure in brought to bear their education will cease and we will have that thing that is deplorable in any countiy and doubly so in our great democracy. A host of young people swelling the ranks of the untrained workers. Nothing could be more un boys and girls should deliberately DESTRUCTIVE FIRES, LIGHTNING, TORNADOES AND WINDSTORMS Have Caused Losses of Millions of Dollars in Prop erty as Well as Thousands of Precious Lives FARM MUTUAL INSURANCE is the only form of protection not so expensive, but that it is available to every property owner, and is a perfect safeguard against property loss. It only costs 20 Cents per $100.00 Insurance-5 Years aud on life insurance the cost is proportionately small. Farmers' Mutual Insurance Companies, of Rock Port, incorporated in 1889, are the oldest, largest and cheapest in the state. R. VI. FRISSELL, Agent. give up their school training. In the United States today there is that very large class of workers stri ving against the handicap of lack of a good education, and along the line of the march of progress are found the unfortunates passed by the ones who have the advantages of the school training. It is so unfair to the boy and girl in this country, where the school house is not for the classes, but for the masses, to let a few paltry dol lars, he or she may earn now stand in the way of attaining that one thing that makes the boy or girl the equal of any parent. Have you the welfare of your children at heart"? Be alive to their-needs and see tha they are in school in September. Mrs.. F. J. Martin, Substitute Chairman of Publicity of Woman's Committee. NOTICE TO ICE CONSUMERS This is to advise that I have this day issued the following recommenda tion to all ice dealers in the cityj "Under the present unavoidable ice stringency,, it becomes necessary to take steps in protection of that class of patronage wherein some supply of ice is required in the perservation of health in the community. I would, therefore, recommend that all requests for ice from homes where sickness existas or where there are babies or infant children be given preference over demands of all other classes of pataronage and I will in sert notice in the two papers advising the public of this recommendation which is being made to all ice dealers in the city." ' -t ' Ice consumers in whose families there are babies, or wherein sickness exists will advise their dealer of the conditions in order that they may re ceive the preference recommended in tha above circular. R. W. FRISSEL, Chairman, Board of Health Supt. Dept. Public Safety. August 10, 1918. OPTIMIST IS A "BERLOQUE" People Have Joyous Time While Walt. Ing in Subway Stations Crap ' Game Holds Interest of the Crowd. Parts. Two more words have been added to that very growing dictionary of war words. In Paris these two words have achieved a new signifi cance. Pessimists are now known as "sirens" and optimists are "berloques." The significance is self-explanatory to those whfi have experienced an air raid in Paris. Many dread the screech ing, weird, banSneelike waft of the alarm glvirfg siren mote than the act ual danger from the raiders, while the "berloque," that Jtvefy little bugle call telling that all danger Is past and that one may rest safely in one's bed. is indeed a friend welcome as any optftntst. A Paris bookkeeper who suddenly left thje iSty Vhen the raids over the capital Mcflmii ioOecfaent and went to Nantes has been sued by his em ployer for $G0 damage for leaving with out notice. The case, not the only one of its kind in the French court today.ds attracting attention. The -bookkeeper's explanation was that his nerves were upset by the bombs and shells and that he thought himself Justified in getting out of dan ger. The court held that a bombard ment by airplanes and long-range guns could not be considered a sufli cient reason ror tne breach or con tract and gave judgment for the amount named. The darkened streets of Paris have caused many persons to roam around town after returning from the theater or a visit because of the difficulty lr. findlntr the streets and house numbers An attempt to improve this condition Is to be made eopn by placing iumlnous numbers traced,in little buttonlike mir rors which reflect and magnify the fmallesi Elimmtii'tlf light on the houses of the city. ' One wduld think upon descending to one of the large and centrally located underground railway stations which aresed as shelters that a soiree was in progress Instead of an air raid. This is what the correspondent saw one evening during a raid when he was obliged to seek cover in one of the subway stations: In one corner a violin, accompanied by two guitars, was doling out a tune to which a "squadron" of youthful avi ators were waltzing around, their part ners being a group of pretty danseuses who had hurriedly left a neighboring theater wearing their costumes, make up and all. In another corner a group of Poilus, loaded down with their trench equip ment, having been caught in the under ground while on their way to the rail road depot and to the front, were sing ing "Madelon." their "Tipperary," in rather discordant tones. But it was singing Just the same. Crap Game Holds Crowd. An unusual feature of this partlcu lar "soiree" was a genuine all-Ameri can crap game not for keeps. It would hardly be an exaggeration to say that half of the crowd in the station had odsred around the half dozen spare American doughboys three of whom were gentlemen of color to witness this contest in bone throwing. The colored fcjntfcmen handled their dice with a deftness that was delight fully reminiscent of "somewhere In Harlem," to say nothing of their pro ficiency In the vocabulary of the grme. which Parisians have since learned is a very essential adjunct to any skill at It. Investigation of casualties following an air raid over the capital have proved to the authorities that the greatest number of casualties are not the result of injuries received from the bombs of the raiders, but of care lessness on the part of the victims, rarislans have become too accustom ed to air raids. They stay out of doors to see the bursting of the shells from the antiaircraft guns and others leave their shelters and go home before the signal. As a result recently 23 persons were Injured, some because they did not keep tinder cover long enough, and others because they stood at their win dows watching the bursting shells as If it were an exhibition of fireworks. The police have again warned the pop ulation. "The better protection of the city," says an order, "is no reason for neglecting the precautions dictated by common sense."

S elect a fat young rabbit which, if fresh, . Wiil have no un pleasant odor. SEln and clean it and split down, the back. Disjoint and cut into convenient-sized pieces for serv ing; wipe each with a damp cloth and parboil it in a little vinegar water if the gamey taste Is at all objectionable.

Add these to the rice and let it cook very slowly on the back part of the stove or in the fire less cooker. Just before serving, add more seasoning, if needed, and pour over it two tablespoonfuls of melted j butter; add two large cardamon seeds split, and turn into a hot dish. A cupful of grated cheese stirred Into hot mush makes a nourishing and wholesome dish.

Woodrow Wilson. Extravagant use of the telephone is wasteful. It is wasteful of the man-powerand woman-power of the nation. Women are taking the places of men called to . the colors and it is becoming increasingly difficult to get a sufficient number of competent women to handle the ever-increasing number of telephone calls. It is a situation for the telephone subscriber to consider. They can help: By refraining from making unneccessary calls; By prohibiting younger people, clerks and ser vants in th2ir hjrnes from using the telephone for trivial conversations; By reducing the length of conversations to not over FIVE MINUTES; and By always referring lor tne correct numoer. This practical assistance will keep lines of com munication open and enable your telephone compa ny to give urgently needed service. Cape Girardeau Telephone Compan BELLEVILLE WON'T HEAR THOMPSON Citizens Refuse to Permit Him To Speak Because of His Attitude. ST. LOUIS, Aug. 15. William Ha'e Thompson, Mayor of Chicago and candidate for the Repub lican nomination for United States Senator from Illinois, will not be al lowed to speak at Belleville Saturday, if Mayor Duvall of that city and a large number of the citizens can pre vent him. Protests against Thomp son's addressing a Belleville audience are said to be due to his alleged an ti-Administration stand. Thompson's representative engaged to the Telephone Directory te Lhyric Theater two weeks ago, agreeing to pay Joseph Erber, the owner, $50 for its use next Saturday night. Yesterday Erber, acting on the protest of the Mayor and other citizens, refunded the money and wired Thompson he could not use the theater. As Erber controls both theaters ac Belleville, Thompson will have t look I for a place to- speak in the interests of his candidacy. This is the second t?me that Mayor Thompson has found a closed door on the East Side. At Edw&Fdsv.iV Sat urday, it was announced by th.? May or that Thomp.sou, who had arranged to speak there, would r.ot be permit ted to do so. CHICHESTER 5 PUIS V !4IM Amk yrnw Dmta H.TA f Plila UIMttd tM nmufcVV? bows, Mated At Blue RiUm. V grant.
