A Stock Owners Warned Against Death of An Old Lady. C. B. Pendleton Acquitted. The entertainment at the courthouse last Friday evening, given by the Ladies Aid Society of the Christian Church, was highly enjoyed by the many who put in an appearance. The acting was fine, not a mistake being made in the entire program. Columbia has a great deal qf talent, and much of it was displayed on this occasion. The duets by Misses Mary Myers and Grace Conover were skillfully executed, evincing much talent, and the singing by the children was delightful. Miss Jim Conover, as Dinah, the colored cook, in dialect and acting, brought down the house. The farce, the Minister's Wife, was highly enjoyable and kept the audience in an uproar. The scene "was at a Boarding School, the principal be ing Mrs. A. 0. Taylor, the dormitory girls, Misses Latitia Paull, Mary D. Patteson, Eva Walker, Allene Montgomery, the minister's wife, Miss Vic Hughes. It was full of fun from start to finish, the acting perfect. This farce was followed by another, ."Murder will Out." The characters being Grandmother Stiles, Mrs. G. Lena Stiles, her granddaughter, Miss Mabel Atkins: Minnie Sprague, Miss Dora Eubank; May Taylor, Miss Catherine Nell: Bridget O'Flaherty, Miss Vic Hughes. This play caused a smile to come across the faces of all present, and when the audience left for their respective homes, only compliments were heard of the evening's s: Reports are now beginning to come in to the department from several of the States quarantined for ihe disease 2:30 o'clock, foot-and-mou- th that persons who have no connection whatever with the department are attempting to pass themselves off as Federal Inspectors. There are several possible motives that micht account for the existence of these imposters. In the outbreak of 1908 there were instances of men who obtained money from credulous vie tims who believed that in this way they would escape the inconvenience of quarantine and disinfection. This is, of course, a very simple form of extortion. Another motive may be the sale of some anack remedy for the entertainment.

The Russian left wing resting on the river Warts, and the Russian right wing on the Vistula, both lying along the Warsaw-Kalis- z railroad, moved forward in unison in the last two days. Simultaneously the Russian center gave ground and the Germans followed, apparently relying upon a German column from Wielun to repulse the Russian left wing and to form a juncture with the main German forces. The German plan failed as a result of the battle on November There25, when the German force from Wielun was repuised. after, the Russian wings advanced and closed the gap through which the German center had passed.

CUT TO PIECES. One detachment of Germans in the recent fighting before Lodz, which reports arriving here assert was cut to pieces by the Russians, is said to have been on the point of executing a coup disguised as Russians. It is alleged that they wore the round fur peaked caps which form part of the Caucrsian regiment's uniform. They were detected as they were about to turn the Russian flank by Russian officers, who noted through the field glasses slight differences in the uniform and equipment of the Germans, according to the story. The Warsaw correspondent of the Reuter Telegram Company sends the following dispatch: "Long columns of German prisoners are passing through this city. Among them are many of the Prussian guard. Many wounded Germans have their hands and feet frozen and lack warm clothing." DIXMUDE RETAKEN. London, Nov. 26. The correspondent of the Daily Mail at Dunkirk, France, telegraphs that Dixmude has been retaken by the allies.. He says: "The French marines attacked the town strongly on Tuesday night and drove the Germans out of three lines of advanced trenches. On Wednesday they followed this up by entering the town in an irresistible charge. "The enemy did not halt in their retreat until they were seven miles out of the town. The marines lost 300 men."

Our government never faced so tremendous a problem as that now lying dormant at the doors of congress and the legislatures, and which, when aroused, will shake this nation from center to circumference, and make civilization hide its face in shame. That problem is women in the field. The last federal census reports show we now have 1,514,000 women working in the field, most of them south of the Mason and Dixon line. There were approximately a million negro slaves working in the fields when liberated by the emancipation proclamation. We have freed our slaves and our women have taken their places in bondage. "We have broken the shackles off the negroes and welded them upon our daughters. of Civilization. The Chain-GanI A million women in bondage in the of southern fields form the chain-gancivilization the Industrial tragedy of the age. There is no overseer quite so cruel as that of unrestrained greed, no whip that stings like the lash of suborned destiny, and no auctioneer's block quite so revolting as that of organized avarice. The president of the United States was recently lauded by the press, and very properly so, for suggesting mediation between the engineers and railroad managers in adjusting their schedule of time and pay. The engineers threatened to strike if their wages were not increased from approximately ten to eleven dollars per day and service reduced from ten to eight hours and a similar readjustment of the overtime schedule. Our women are working in the field, many of them barefooted, for less than 50 , cents and their schedule is the rising sun and the evening star, and after the day's work is over they milk the cows, slop the hogs and rock the baby to sleep. Is anyone mediating over their problems, and to whom shall they threaten a strike? Congress has listened approvingly to those who toil at the forge and behind the counter, and many of our statesmen have smiled at the threats and have fanned the flame of unrest among industrial laborers. But women are'aa surely the final victims of industrial warfare as they are the burden-bearer- s in the war between nations, and those who arbitrate and mediate the differences between capital and labor should not forget that when the expenses of any industry are unnecessarily Increased, society foots the bill by drafting a new consignment of women from the home to the field. Pinch no Crumb From Women's Crust of Bread. No financial award can be made without someone footing the bill, and we commend to those who accept the responsibility of the distribution of industrial justice, the still small voice of the woman in the field as she pleads for mercy, and we beg that they pinch no crumb from her crust of bread or put another patch upon her ragged garments. We beg that they listen to the scream cf horror from the eagle on every American dollar that is wrung from the brow of toiling women and hear the Goddess of Justice hiss at a verdict that increases the want of woman to satisfy the greed of man. The women behind the counter and in the factory cry aloud for sympathy and the press thunders out in their defense and the pulpit plead3 for mercy, but how about the woman in the field? Will not these powerful exponents of human rights turn their talent, energies and influence to her relief? Will the Goddess of Liberty enthroned at Washington hold the calloused hand and soothe the feverish brow of her sex who sows and reaps the nation's harvest or will she permit the male of the species to shove women weak and weary from the bread-linof industry to the back alleys of poverty? Women and Children First. The census enumerators tell us that of the 1,514,000 women who work in the fields as farm hands 409,000 are sixteen years of age and under.. What is the final destiny of a nation whose future mothers spend their girlhood days behind the plow, pitching hay and hauling manure, and what is to become of womanly culture and refinement that grace the home, charm society and enthuse man to leap to glory in noble achievements if our daughters are raised in the society of the ox and the companionship of the plow? In that strata between the ages of are 950,000 womsixteen and forty-fiv- e en working as farm hands and many of them with suckling babes tugging at their breasts, as drenched in perspiration, they wield the scytho g g per-daye and guide the plow. What Is to become of that nation where poverty breaks the" crowns of the queens of the home; despair hurls a motner's-lov- e from its throne ana hunger drives innocent children from the schoolroom to the hoe? The census bureau shows that 155,- 000 of these women are forty-fiv- e years of age and over. There is no more pitiful sight in civilization than these saintly mothers of Israel stooped with age, drudging in the field from sun until sun and at night drenching their dingy pillows with the tears of despair as their aching hearts take it all to God in prayer. Civilization strikes them a blow when it should give them a crown, and their only friend is he who broke bread with beggars and said: "Come unto me all ye that are weary and heavy laden and 1 will give yoa rest" Oh, America! The land of the free and the home of the brave, the world's custodian of chivalry, the champion of human rights and the defender of the oppressed shall we permit our maidens fair to be torn from the hearthstone by the ruthless hand of destiny and chained to the plow? Shall we permit our faithful wives, whom we covenanted with God to cherish and protect, to be hurled from the home to the harvest field, and our mothers dear to be driven from the old arm chair to the cotton patch? In rescuing our citizens from the forces of civilization, can we not apply to our fair Dixieland the rule of the sea "women and children first?" There must be a readjustment o the wage scale of Industry so that the women can be taken from the field or given a reasonable wage for her services. Perhaps the issue has never been fairly raised, but the Farmers' Union, with a membership" of ten million, puts its organized forces squarely behind the issue and we now enter upon the docket of civilization the case of "The Woman in the Field" and demand an immediate trial. RAILROAD 1 APPEAL SiOENT The Common Carriers Ask for Relief President Wilson Directs Attention of Public to Their Needs. The committee of railroad executives, headed by Mr. Frank Trumbull, representing thirty-fiv- e of the leading railroad systems of the nation, recently presented to President Wilson a memorandum briefly reviewing the difficulties now confronting the railroads of the country and asking for the cooperation of the governmental authorities and the public in supporting railroad credits and recognizing an emergency which requires that the railroads be given additional revenues. The memorandum recites that the European war has resulted in general depression of business on the American continent and in the dislocation of credits at home and abroad. With revenues decreasing and interest rates increasing the transportation systems cf the country face a n.ost serious crisis and the memorandum is a strong presentation of the candle burning at both ends and the perils that must ultimately attend such a conflagration when the flames meet is apparent to all. In their general discussion the railroad representatives say in part: "By reason of legislation and regulation by the federal government and the forty-eigh- t states acting independently of each other, as well as through the action of a strong public opinion, railroad expenses in. recent years have vastly increased. No criticism is here made of the general theory of governmental regulation, but on the other hnd, no ingenuity can relieve the caTiers of expenses created thereby." President Wilson, in transmitting-thmemorandum of the railroad presidents to the publW, characterizes it as "a lucid statement or plain truth." The president recognizing the emergency as extr wdinary, continuing, said in part: "You ask me to cal- - ihe attention of the country to the Juperative need that railway credits bU sustained and the railroads helped ifc every possible way, whether by prirte effort or by the wherever feasible of governmental agencies, and I am glad to do so because I think the need very real.''

F. Triptett, Columbia, Ky. Nation Rings With Cries of Stricken Industry. By Peter Radford Lecturer National Farmers' Union. King Cotton has suffered more from the European war than any other agricultural product on the American continent The shells of the belligerents have bursted over his throne, frightening his subjects and shattering his markets, and, the nation cries out "God save the 3dng!" People from every walk of life have contributed their mite toward rescue work. Society has danced before the king; milady has decreed that the family wardrobe shall contain only cotton goods; the press has plead with the public to "buy a bale"; bankers have been formulating holding plans; congress and legislative "bodies have deliberated over relief measures: statesmen and writers lave grown eloquent expounding the Inalienable rights of "His Majesty" and presenting schemes for preserving the financial integrity of the stricken staple, but the sword of Europe has proved mightier than the pen of America in fixing value upon thft product of the sunny south. Prices have been bayoneted, values riddled and markets decimated by the battling hosts of the eastern hemisphere until the American farmer has suffered a war loss of $400,000,000, and a bale of cotton brave enough to enter a European port must pay a ransom of half its value or go to prison until the war is over. Hope of the Future Lies In tion. The Farmers' Union, through the columns of the press, wants to thank the American people for the friendship, sympathy and assistance given the cotton farmers in the hour of distress and to direct attention to cooperative methods necessary to permanently assist the marketing of all farm products The present emergency presents as crave a situation as ever confrnnfpd the American farmer and from the ' viewpoint of the producer, would seem panic-stricken, Co-oper- a- Ad By Peter Radford Lecturer National Farmers' Union. The economic distribution of farm products is today the world's greatest problem and the war, while it has brought its hardships, has clearly emphasized the importance of distribution as a factor in American agriculture and promises to give the farmers the of the government and the business men the solution of their marketing problem. This result will, in a measure, compensate us for our war losses, for the business interests and government have been in the main assisting almost exclusively on the production side of agriculture. While the department of agriculture has been dumping tons of literature on the farmer telling him how to produce, the farmer has been dumping tons of products in the nation's garbage can for want of a market. The World Will Never Starve. At no time since Adam and Eve were driven from the Garden of Eden have the inhabitants of this world suffered from lack of production, hut some people have gone hungry from the day of creation to this good hour for the lack of proper distribution. Slight variations in production have forced a change in diet and one locality has felt the pinch of want, while another surfeited, but the world as a whole has ever been a land o' r1pr,T' h of We now have less than the tillable land of the earth's surface under cultivation, and we not only have this surplus area to draw on but it is safe to estimate that in case of one-tent- Daily Courier - Journal $6.00 a Year m f JferrJrl'sfiiFtaiflJA5fc?'Cijl5?T-"C1iU- Sunday Courier Journal m&m mmmmmm&mmm--mmm vm&mmBEasE&rKzm i .msnezacx-rK-Ki .,f.

All calamities teach us lessons and the present crisis serves to illuminate the frailties of our marketing methods and the weakness of our credit system, and out of the financial anguish and travail of the cotton farmer will come a volume of discussion and a mass of suggestions and finally a solution of this, the biggest problem in the economic life of America, if, indeed, we have not already laid the foundation for at least temporary re- the earth's population could at the present time knock their living out of the trees of the forest gather it from wild vines and draw it from streams.

Although the opinion is expressed by foreign- military critics that operations on a large scale are in progress in France and official announcements from Paris and Berlin tell of no important battles. The fighing in the east likewise has dimin-ishe- d in intensity. The German War Office statement reports that nothing of importance has occurred, west or east. The French announcement speaks of violent artillery firenear the North Sea at Nieuport, in the vicinity of Ypres, and between the Rivers Lys and Somme. German forces persist in their infantry attacks in the Argon-n- e region, but so far as has been disclosed have made little progress. The barrier of water which helped the Allies to check the German advance toward the French coast has been extended, further territory having been inundated to the south of Dixmude. The Krupp factory at Essen, which supplies the atrman army with its great guns, is said to have been bombarded by an aeronaut, though with what effect is unknown. In Budapest it is asserted that the capture of Belgrade, Servia, by Auscrians was accomplished in a battle with bayonets. This version is at variance with reports from Nish that the Servian troops evacuated the city. Emperor King George was on the firing line in France y William, who recently visited his troops in East Prussia, is now 3aid to be in Breslau, Silesia, where he conferred with Archduke n army.

Advices from both Berlin and Petrograd indicated that the Germans had definitely succeeded in throwing back the enveloping Russian forces and were maintaining stolidly their positions west of Lowiez. Furthermore, it is said that the Germans are again undertaking an energetic offensive. The completeness of change in the situation, ascribed variously to the failure of the Russian Gen. Rennenkampff to close up the ring about the Germans and to the brilliant strategy of the German leaders, is mdicated by a report telegraphed from Petrograd by an English correspondent who previously had announced that the Russians had won an overwhelming victory.

A German military critic estimates that the Russian losses in killed, wounded, prisoners and death from sickness amount to fuld ly 1,100,000, or of the nation's best troops. one-thir- In Galicia the situation is still confused. Recent reports from Petrograd that the Russians had invested Crac3w on three sides are now contradicted by an unofficial dispatch, which says that the invaders are eight miles from the city. The Archbishop of Pxezmysl, the Galician stronghold which has been under siege for several weeks, is quoted a3 saying that the situation there is des perate and that the surrender of the city impends. Germany's determination to prosecute the war relentlessly is reflected in the virtually unanimous vote of the Reichstag for a war credit of $1,250,000,000 and in the Imperial Chancellor's declaration that his country would fight to the last breath. Dispatches from Nish, the temporary capital of Servia, confirm Austrian reports of the occupation of Belgrade by stating that the city has been evacuated by the Servians in consaquence of the advance of the invading Austrian army. In France and Belgium the deadlock remains unbroken. Although fighting proceeds at various points, there was no indication that either side had won important advantages. Berlin, Dec. 3. to-night (By wireless.) An official War Office state- says that the Germans have succeeded in cutting ment through' the Russian right wing in Poland, capturing 12,000 prisonguns. ers and twenty-fiv- e '.There has been marked change in the situation in the Eastern theater in the past few days," said the announcement. "Hard fighting is in progress at Lodz. Our losses have been heavy, but they cannot be called enormous."
