Visits Son's Grave
PARIS, Feb. 20—Pride and sor-
row fought a silent battle in the
heart of a black garbed woman as
.she stood yesterday in the midst
of war's havoc on one of the
bloodiest battlefield'^ in France,
beholding the grave of her fallen
.soldier son, a simple grave, but
well cared for by the reverent
hands of comrades.
On an awkward cross, half of
wood, half of pieces of an air-
plane's propeler, written by a Ger-
man hand was inscribed the name:
"Qeutin Roosevelt." All was sol-
emn silence in this barren plain
where but a few months ago raged
the roar of death-belching cannon.
With Mrs. Roosevelt was a small
party of friends and military of-

agreed with her husband that their
son should remain where he fell, |
on France's soil, and who had come ,
thousands of miles across the sea '
though still bent under a fresh |
grief, batlled courageously against
her emotions. Tenderly, as if in
a last farewell caress for the boy
who sleeps his last sleep under-
neath, she placed some flowers on
the grave, then stood for several
minutes, apparently visualizing
the tragic but glorious end of the
Lieutenant Colonel Theodore
Roosevelt, Jr., was with his

litical pot in Oklahoma City is
boiling fiercely, and promises to
boil over before the day of the

pears to be in the Democratic
ranks, with J. C. Walton as the
central figure. Walton is the
candidate of the Giddings-Barrett
faction for mayor, and is being
strongly opposed by the "Good
Government" league promoted by
Doc Moroney and other leading
citizens. He is also opposed by all
the newspapers of Oklahoma City,,
by whom his election is regarded
as a calamity that the city could
not endure. Under his adminis-
tration it is believed Oklahoma
City would be a "wide open town"
in every acceptation of the term,
and that the bars would be let
down to all sorts of extravagance
and maladministration—in fact, a
sort of a Bolsheviki administra-

ed he has killed 400 worthless curs
(during his administration, and the
ladies think there are 400 more
that ought to be killed. Nothing
is more provoking than to work
hard for weeks on your flower
beds, and some night, just when
you have the beds looking as you
would have them, some contempt-
ible cur comes along and destroys
them. One little old worthless
cur can do more damage in an
hour than the horticulturist can
replace in a week.

Mrs. George W. Miller and her
son, Earl left at noon today for
New York City, to meet their son
and brother, Keith, who is return-
ing from service overseas. Keith
cablegramed from Italy that he
would leave a port of that coun-
try on February 15th and land at
New York on February 25th. Mrs.
Miller and Earl figure on giving
him a pleasant surprise. Keith

the French army, and it is prob-
able he will not have to go t<J a

thirty days, but will be allowed to
come straight home. He has had
a great experience, and will be
