majorities in Weeping Water city. The
Spent a Pleasant Afternoon.
Yesterday afternoon at her pleasant :
home, the genial hostess, Mrs. Wm.
Schmidtman entertained a number of her j
friends at an afternoon luncheon, and a j
specially prepared entertainment, in 1
honor of her friend, Mrs. E. S. Barker, !
formerly of this place, but now of j
Plainview. The decorations were very j
beautiful, being composed chrysanthe- J
mums and ferns, arranged in decided
pretty effects. Music was furnished by (
Mesdames W. C. Tippens and J. W. J
Gamble, the former presiding at the j
piano, while the latter sang some of the
songs which she alone can give that j
beautiful rendition which has made her
sinerintr so popular. During the after- ',
nood a dainty two-course luncheon was
served, and "all went merry as a mar
riage bell." In the departing of the
guests for their homes, they all wished
Mrs. Barker a very pleasant time in
her home in the northwest and endeav
ored to make her visit in this city one
long to be remembered.
C P. Richards and wife were passen
gers to Omaha this afternoon, where
they are visiting with friends and look
ing after some business matters as well.

Dr. Cook Improving
Dr. Cook is reported as being some
what improved in his condition and was
allowed by his physicians to sit up for
a little while yesterday. Hopes are
entertained that he will be able to be
out again in a short time. His many
friends will be pleased to learn of his
recovery and will be delighted when he
shall be out again.
A number of the friends of Carl N.
Humphrey and bride thought to catch
them at the train and give them a send
off. They went to the Missouri Pacific J
depot and waited until the train arrived !
from the south and when they found j
that the bridal party did not show up
they started for the Burlington depot
and arrived there too late for the train.
The happy couple had outwitted them
by driving to the Burlington bridge and
taking the train for the north at that
place and thus escaped the showers of
rice and old shoes. Nebraska City
W. T. Richardson, the Mynard mer- j
chant, was a brief business visitor in j

COST OF THANKS
It Will Be $1.25 More for the Average
Family Than Last Year.
United States government statisti
cians can give us figures from which
any one may form nis own conclusions.
But it does not take a mathematical
calculation to convince the average
housewife that a dollar does not go as
far this year as last. When she goes
out to buy her Thanksgiving dinner in
about three weeks it has been estimated
that for the average family it will cost
nearly $7.50, where it cost $0.25 last
year. And this is a difference of $1.25
in the cost of a single meal. No con
sumer would object to the present rise
of prices were he convinced that the
men who produce the things which he
purchases reap the benefit of the ad
vance in price. But every observing
person knows that this is not so. The
farmer is selling for less than he ever
did before. The consumer is paying
more. And this is true not only in ag
ricultural lines, but in all lines of in
dustry. The middleman, who happens
to be what we call the trusts, plays
both ends against the middle. He has
monopolized both the markets in which
the producer can sell and that in which
the consumer can buy. The trust buys
from the producer at its own price; it
sells to the consumer at its own figure.
The great mass of the people are abso
lutely at its mercy. Yet the president
prates of prosperity. Prosperity! An
other six years of such prosperity as
the great mass of our people have en
joyed during the last six years of the
Roosevelt regime and the whole scale of
living in our nation will be greatly low
ered. Already the tradesmen are stoop
ing to all kinds of tricks to cover up the
rise of the price level for which they
are not to blame. All sorts of methods
of adulteration, of giving short weight
and skimped measure are practiced.
More and cheaper yeast and less flour
is put in the bread. The hem and length
of all garments are cut down. As an
old negro servant expressed it: "We
have just got to put more water in the
soup nowaways. That's all." And that
is what this republican prosperity
means. It is a "more water in the
soup" prosperity. It is a prosperity
that is lowering the standard of
living to the great mass of our people.
And a nation's real strength rests, af
ter all, on the standards of living the
masses of its people can maintain.
Less prosperity talk, less invective
against the "malefactors of great
wealth" and the trusts and more action
toward reducing a tariff that makes
trusts possible would be appreciated.
Less sham prosecution of trusts, based
on futile investigations, fines and in
junctions, and more real prosecution,
devoid of the immunity bath and full of
the imprisonment penalty, would be
welcome. Fewer words and more deeds
this is the cure for the present dis
ease. . And this is what the people need

After a Crisis in the Market There is Always

What Actually Occasioned the Wall Street Panic
Scarcity of Capital the Principal Cause.
After a crisis in the markets there is
always abundance of authoritative in
formation as to why any crisis what
ever should have come. Opinions in
cases of this sort will differ, because
panics are psychological. But in any
case, the inquiry remains as to just
what caused such events as last week's
early bank disasters, and the train of
events that followed them, says the
New York Post.
First and foremost stands the long
discussed scarcity of capital, wherein
demands on the world's credit resources
had out-stripped supply. Such a situa
tion meant either that new plans involv
ing large use of money must be laid
aside or else that capital already lodged
in older enterprises must be withdrawn.
But its withdrawal left many older un
dertakings and the banks whose funds
were invested in them in a more or less
Second, and as a corollary, must be
cited the waste of credit during many
years; by our "boomers" and promoters
of 1901 and 1902, by the suspicious per
sonages who bought up banks on mar
gin, and built up their "chain," and by
the infatuated financiers who threw us
in debt to Europe during 100G by hun
dreds of millions of dollars for the pur
pose chiefly of putting up the price of
stocks. The very much larger part of

" Baby Is Dead."
A telegraph operator pens the follow
ing thoughts suggested by a brief mes
sage as it flashed along the wires:
"Baby is dead! " Three little words
passed along the line, copied somewhere
and soon forgotten. But after all was
quiet I leaned my head upon my hand
and fell into a ideep reverie of all that
those words may mean.
Somewhere a dainty form, still and
cold, clasped by a mother's arm tonight.
Eyes that were on the yesterday bright

neath white lids that no voice can raise
Two soft hands, whose rose-leaf fin
gers were wont to wander lovingly
around mother's neck and face, loosely
holding white buds, quietly folded in
Soft lips, yesterday rippling with
laughter, sweet as woodland brook falls,
gay as the trill of a forest bird, tonight
unresponsive to kiss or call of love.
A silent home the patter of baby's
feet forever hushed a cradle bed un
pressed. Little shoes half worn dain

blue to match those eyes of yesterday,

A mother's groping touch in uneasy
slumber, for the fair head that shall
never again rest upon her bosom. The
low sob, the bitter tear, as broken
dreams awake to sad reality. The hopes
of future years wrecked, like fair ships
that suddenly go down in sight of land.
The watching of other babies dimpled,
laughing, strong, and this one gone!
The present agony of grief the future
emptiness of heart, all held in those
three little words, "Baby is Dead."
Indeed, it is well that we can copy
and soon forget the words so freighted
with woe to those who send and receive
them. And yet it cannot harm us now
and then to give a tender thought to
those whom our careless pen stroke is
preparing such a weight of grief."
Will It Be Byron Clark?
The Lincoln Journal has the follow
ing to say in reference to the appoint
ment of a successor to J. W. Deweese,
late at the head of the legal depart
ment of the Burlington, now deceased:
"Local lawyers say it has been rumored
that Byron Clark of Plattsmouth is to
be made, head of the legal department
of the Burlington in this city, succeed
ing the late J. W. Deweese. No ap
pointment has been announced, although
it was expected that shortly action
would be taken in this matter, soon
after the return of General Manderson
to his office at Omaha."

Appreciated the Firemen's Services.
W. J. Lorenz is preparing to give the
David City Fire department a banquet
at Bahr's restaurant Thursday evening.
Mr. Lorenz appreciated the willingness
and hard work of the boys last week
when his meat market was burning.
This makes the boys feel good, when
the business men appreciate their efforts
to save their places of business.
We clip the above from yesterday's
issue of the Omaha Bee, which haa
reference to one of our former citizens,
and shows the feelings entertained for
the services which the fire department
of that city rendered at the fire a short
time since. At the time, the building
whioh was occupied by Mr. lorenz in
David City was destroyed, but by the
heroic work of the firemen the greater
portion of the goods of the market were
saved. Mr. Lorenz takes this plan to
show his appreciation of the efforts put
forth by the fire laddies on the occasion.
This kind of an appreciation of their
services is a great encouragement to
the boys who fight the fire demon, and
try to protect our homes. The item is
