law. Mr. Clark declared that if
there had been any hold-up In busi-
ness It was simply because prudence
was being exercised. He said the
wish was the father of the thought
with the republican leaders and
suggested that It was strange that
no one else had seen signs of falling

Representative Mann had painted
a gloomy picture of the country un

WASHINGTON, Dec. 19.—His-
toric battle flags of the United
States In the museum at West Point
military academy are sadly in need
of repairs and the civil service com-
mission is endeavoring to find
expert needlewoman to mend them.
These ancient colors are very valu-
able. Most of them pertain to thi
revolutionary, Mexican and civil
wars and were carried by troops en-
gaged In these conflicts.
The work of repairing these flags
will be very difficult because in mos:
cases the material has become so
brittle that they would almost fall
to pieces If handled too roughly.
An open competitive examination
will be held to obtain the right pet
eon for tho task.

One of the most pleasant social
events of the season was the linen
shower given yesterday afternoon by
Mrs. James D. Wilson In honor of
her niece. Miss Leila Stapler Wilson,
whose wedding with Mr. Leon Law-
rence Leslie will be solemnized Sat-
urday, December 27. Thirty-six
guests assembled at the home of
Mrs. Wilson, when the bpide-to-be
was Introduced. She was then blind-
folded and taken to an arch closed
by draperies pinned together with a
large red heart. This she was re-
quested to unpin, after which the
blind was removed and Miss Wii
son's gaze fell upon the shower of
beautiful linens arranged upon a
table among potted ferns. Many
beautiful pieces were given by her
host of friends but for the want of
space we are unable to give descrip-
tions and the names of the donors.
One piece however, we cannot pass
without giving a short special men
tion. This was two and one-half
ards of crocheted lace suitable for
sheet. This pattern was designed
and crocheted by Mrs. J. A. Law-
rence, arranged with three doves at
either end, with the name "Leila
Stapler Wilson, 1913" in large let-
ters and figures through tha center
arranged to balance by other de-
signs In crochet work being very
neat and as a whole showing great
ability for designing. A half-hour
guessing game was had. Miss Louise
Crafton receiving a beautiful hand-
made dresser scarf as tho prize, aft-
er which the hostess served a de-
licious two-course luncheon. The
home was beautifully decorated
with jotted plants and ferns and
artistically draped with strings or
red hearts.

ROME, Dec. 18.—The death of
Cardinal Rampolla, former papal

known to Pope Pius X., until yes-

Bressan, the pope's private secre
tary, went to see hJs holiness at an
early hour Intending to break the
sad news as gently as possible. But
when the pope heard the name ol
Cardinal Rampolla, coupled with the
word "indisposition" he grew pale
and begged them te tell him the
truth without hesitation, as anxiety
and uncertainty affected him more
than anything else. The two pre-
lates then told him that Rampolla
was dead.
As recently as Saturday the pope

Farmers in the Ozark country are
marketing the biggest crop of
Christmas turkeys they have sold in
many years. Springfield is the cen-
tral point for shipping tho birds

Ozark's contributions of turkeys for
the holiday trade will exceed 100,-
