BACK FROM TRIP TO
MR. AND MRS. THOMAS WILES
ARE HOME FROM MOST
Prom Monday's Daily.
Last Saturday evening, Thomas
Wiles and wife returned from a trip
extending over three weeks in Ar
kansas, where they visited many im
portant and interesting places. They
went to Little Rock where they vis
ited with their son. Lee Wiles, who
is minister of the First Christian
church of that city, for some two
weeks, and with the car of Noren
Wiles scouted over the surrounding
country seeing many places of inter
est. Among other places they visit
ed Hot Springs, some sixty miles from
Little Rock. Among the interesting
sights noted were the peculiar build
ings in the town, and the hotel at
which there were hundreds taking
baths and receiving treatment for
almost every ailment under the sun.
The country was interesting to Mr.
and Mrs. Wiles, and the more so on
account of the great difference of
climate and in the nature of farm
ing from that which prevails in good
old Nebraska. The colored people do
ail the work and farm with one mule
cultivating more than any one other
thing, cotton. Some corn and an
enormous amount of vegetables are
raised. Southern varieties, such as
sweet potatoes and articles of that
After having concluded their visit
at Little Rock they returned north
and visited at Fayetteville, which is
located in the northwest part of the
state, some thirty miles from the Ok
lahoma line and about twice as far
from the south line of Missouri.
Their visit here was at the home of
Mrs. Finch and family, she being a
daughter of Mr. Wiles. The town of
Fayetteville is most beautifully sit-
uated on a bench above the White j
river. Ther is a mountain , jusr.
east of the city which bears the rep 1-
tation of being the highest in the !
state of Arkansas. To the top of
this mountain climbed Mr. and Mrs.
Wiles. In order to ascend its steep
slopes they had to first go down near
the river and in some places the as
cent was nearly perpendicular. Upon
finally reaching the top they found
table land nearly a mile in width and
almost perfectly level whereupon all

ed. At this altitude they were able
to see into Oklahoma some thirty odd
miles distant. One thing that seem
ed peculiar to them was that there
were wells with an abundance of
water in them on the very top of this
mountain, which were not more than
14 feet deep. The waterworks sup
plying the city of Fayetteville are on
the side of this mountain about half
way up, and the storage of water
there produces an enormous pressure
in the city across the valley.
Mr. and Mrs. Wiles were well
pleased with their trip and think it
a wonderful country. But they were
glad to look again on old Plattsmouth
and the faces of their life-long
A LITTLE ATTENTION TO YOUR
CAR WILL SAVE YOU TROUBLE
From Monday's Daily.
Most of the people who are ow
ners of cars seem to court trouble
by their almost entire lack of care
in the matter of their tail lights.
They come to the city and park their
car before dark and then when they
are ready to go, get into the car
and away they scoot, without ever
taking into consideration the fact
that their tail lights are not burn
ing. The law requires that the lights
be burning in the rear of the car as
well as on the front. Chief of Po
lice Barclay is kept busy chasing af
ter car owners a good deal of the
time in order to keep these matters
The owners of cars who are care
less about this matter should take it
as a matter of kindness on' the part
of the police in calling their atten
tion to the necessity of keeping the
tail lights burning.

22. The L-49. the only Zeppelin to
fall into the hands of the allies
intact, struck its colors to the shot
gun of a local workman named
Boiteux. Lieutenant Lafargue, of
the Crocodile Escadrille winged the
Zeppelin, forcing it to land.
About 9:30 o'clock Saturday
morning Boiteux was walking in a
field with a dog and gun when he
heard the sound of motors. He looked
up and saw the Zeppelin surround
ed by airplanes which were pepper
ing it. The monster was flying very
slow and very low. Suddenly the
bows dipped into a clump of trees
and the airship came to a standstill,
subsiding gently across a narrow ra
vine in the bottom of which runs a

"Immediately," said M. Boiteux,

ONCOMING FREIGHT DEMOL
ISHES All AUTO AT UNION
From Monday's Daily.
Saturday morning while Robert
Good and Gussie Pullen, were at
tempting to cross the Missouri Pa
cific tracks at Union, the engine of
their automobile died when they had
just gotten on the track, with the
result that the car stopped as well.
and while they were making prep
arations to start the engine, a freight
came along, striking the car as it
stood on the track, completely de
molishing the front portion ott the
car, and scattering it along the
track for considerable distance. The
men were able to get clear of the
wreckage, but not without Mr.
Good getting scratched nip consider
Mr. Pullen was more fortunate as
he got away without a scratch. The
, drivels of the car did not notice the
train coming, and when attempting
to cross, they were not aware of its
approach. Neither did the railroad
men know of the attempted cross
ing of the automobile until it shot
upon the track and stopped, and
while the engineer did what he could
to avert the collision, he was not
able to prevent it.
It is fortunate that neither man
was killed outright, and that they
escaped with as little injury as came
to them. The damage to the car was
NO ONE TO CLAIM PROPERTY
LEFT BY MURDOCH FARMER
From Monday's Daily.
Herman Teokoter, was a prosper
ous farmer, unmarried, having
eighty acres of land near Murdock,
where he had it stocked well with
good cattle, horses, hogs and poul
try, besides having a nice crop of
the varieties raised on a farm such
as corn, oats, wheat, and other
things, besides having other property
on his farm. Something over a
month since the man sickened and
died at his home. lie has only two
sisters, they living in Germany, and
their country an alien enemy of the
United States. There were no one
a relative to file a petition for the
appointment of an administrator.
Now comes a creditor through his
attorney C. S. Aldrich and asks the
appointment of Henry Ileichman, as
the administrator. The question
which Is to puzzle the authorities is
the disposition of the residue of the
property after the payment of the
indebtedness. It looks as though it
could not go to alien enemy heirs,
and there are no others to inherit,
will it escheat to the state, or will
t be confiscated by the general gov
ernment. It has not been stated
whether the man who died was a
citizen of America or Germany,
which would make another phase of

London, Oct. 22. London and

enjoys the luxury of kicking over
food which, to a veteran survivor of
the real thing in food shortage, is
both good and ample.
To a reminiscent correspondent's
Berlin palate, London is still exub
erantly epicurean. Its food troubles
are microscopic surface phenomena,
as seen thourgh Berlin glasses.
London has not begun to feel the
cruel gaff of war as Berlin knows it.

The great heart of Lonodn beats
with its old wonted regularity; Ber
lin's pulse in comparison is unde

three years of war Berlin shows
suggestive symptoms of moral as well
as physical mal-nutrition. London's
vitality is absolutely unimpaired.
After Berlin, life seems to throb

London's arteries. The thunder of
ihe Strand and Picadilly is nerve
racking after the restful quiet of
Berlin. The continuous procession
of juggernaut motor busses and real
rubber tired taxicabs seem like a
wild, impossible dream after the al
most motor earless streets of Berlin
from which even the humble horse
drawn vehicles seem to be doomed
to vanish. Shops full of food and
clothing, purchasable without cards,

No Peace Talk In London.
Even more important, by way of
contrast, Berlin honestly harbors
intense peace yearnings and does not
care who knows it. I have heard
not a ward of peace talk in London.
Berlin's spirits are kept up by fre
quent administration cf early peace
hopes and is enthusiastic for a com
promise peace of reconciliation and
mutual good understanding. London
is incurably deaf to the peace siren.

London, and no need of it, for Lon
don is far from the holding out
The real war is only beginning
for London, still in the first flush of
its strength, calmly, almost stolidly
conscious of its trenmendous, un
tapped reservoir of potential power
and platitudinously confident that
the knockout wallop can be admin
istered to Germany, and nothing
short of beating Germany is for the
moment entertained. And while
Berlin is- hoping againts hope that
there will be no fourth war winter
you feel that London regards the
past as merely preliminary sparring
and is settling down for two or
three years more if necessary.
America's Entry A New Worry.
Berlin continues gamely to stand
tip under the gruelling punishment
of food and economic pressure com
pared to. which London's air raids
are pin pricks. But there is abso
lutely no reason for any special dis
play of gameness on London's part.
It has not begun to know real hard
ship, the incessant punishment as in
flicted by the war on Berlin's bruis
ed, battered body. And while Ber
lin suffers sudden depressions and
exaltations of spirit and attacks of
nervousness over America's entry,
which it gets over only by clinging
to the fiction that America is bluff
ing, London jogs along with no
trace of tension or nervous break
down, its morale buoyed up, if brac
ing were needed, by the comfort
ing knowledge that all America is
mobilizing and means business.
Berlin is worried by the unknown
factor of America and is beginning
to realize that time now is fighting
against Germany, whose sole hope
lies in ending the war before Amer
ica's armies are ready for battle.
London fcas already discounted Amer
ica's entry as a decisive factor in
the world war. The moral effect of
America's entry is the vital out
standing, all important difference be
tween London and Berlin.
