Proclaims Virtues Of Patient Cow
"Blind Homer sang of Trojan
wars and heroes; Virgil, of men
and arms; Horace, of love and
Falernian wine; Dante, of the
infernal regions; and Milton,
of Paradise; but if I had the
genius of all .these old masters
romhined, a harp with a thou
sand strings, and I he world for
an audience, I would sing with
all my heart and soul of the
cow—proclaim her virtues—and
perpetuate her name to the re
motest generations. If f were a
srulptor and had the power to
chisel my thoughts in marble,
I would search the quarries of
the earth for the purest, whitest
stone, and somewhere. In an en
chanted land, where the skies
are bluest, and the waters pur
est, and the birds sing sweet
est far into the soft and mellow
moonlight nights, I would be
gin a Work of love and duty.
*
1 would bid the cold mvrble speak
for me. as I plied the chisel to Its
sides until the rough, hard surface
took the shape I wished and al
last- a cow stood revealed, wide and
kind eyes, in a posture of prtient
waiting to give the rich contents
of her swelling udder, and bless the
receivers with Joy Rnd health and
strength ■ .
1 would make a base on which
this spirit of my dreams would
stand, and around its rim 1 would
carve the figures of dear little bab
es. their hands and expectant faces
raised toward their best friend in
all the animal world, the friend
that, never fails them; the one that
puts the firm pink flesh upon their
tender frames, the one that, brings
dimples snri smiles like the touch
of angel's wings, when the sweet
life-giving milk trickles in a velvet
sugar stream down their tiny
throats, until the bottle falls away
and sleep comes to caress and hold
them still in its protecting arms
The cow is an uncrowned tween
without a scepter, and her kingdom
Is all the land between the seas.
Her motto ts service, and she al
ways gives more than she receives.
When the children are well, she
makes them better, and they grow
and flourish with her constant ben
efactions. When they are sick and
wasted, she raises them up and
I
starts them right again. Her milk
is the one perfect food for young
and old. It holds every element to
sustain and strengthen life. The
cow works for all humanity with
out a complaint, and was never
known to strike for higher wages.
All she wants in exchange for the
myriad blessings that she conferrs
is enough to eat and a place to lie
down at night. The cow is a lady
among all the four-footed creatur
es—a lady that doesn't need fine
clothes, or powder, or lip stick to
set off her infinite beauty.
She is a thorough democrat in
her habits and opinions. She gives
to men and women and children
of nil races and creeds; is kind to
all and favors none above the rest.
She is dainty, too, in her tastes.
She would rather die before she
would feed on flesh. Her food is
(lover, grain and succulent, things
of the vegetable world, grass, with
which God carpets the earth in liv
ing green at it springs fresh from
I he heart of nature
The cow is domestic. She loves
home. She knows the place Where
she lives, and Is faithful to it.
If she must wander away for feed
when the shadow’s begin to length
en in the evening she will be
/ending at the gate, asking for
admission, arid a chance to yield
her rich burden which she has
stored in daylight hours. The cow
is the poor man's chief reliance, his
tried and trusted friend. She is true
to him when all the world is cold.
The cow does not seek strange so
ciety. or run after the rich, as some
of her two-legged sisters do. That
is not her ambition She has high
er and different conceptions of
life.
Her concern is to help all hu
manitv. and the man wrho lives in
a cabin with seven tow-headed
children to bring him joy, and
noverty, is as much the recipient, of
her bounty as the. rich man with
three automobiles two dogs and
four servants, without, one child to
disturb his sleep or bring a smile (“
joy to his starving soul. T believe
that a cow loves the poor man best,
for he needs her most.
If all the cows in the world
should die or dry up tomorrow, it
W'ould bring untold calamity upon
mankind. We could get along bet
ter without railroads, banka or the
cotton crop, for without the cow
the race would sicken, decay and
finally perish. May we honor and
praise her as she deserves. I hope
that as we cease to be cruel and
selfish, we will quit murdering and
eating cows that have given us
strength and comfort and saved our
babies’ lives. When this happy day
comes, T should like to see a large
fund collected to build an ‘‘old cows
home," surrounded by luscious pas
tures and running water, where
these old and tried friends could
pass their remaining days and die
in peace.
In the fullness of age arid the
thought of duty well done, as they
bow their knees In reverence for
the last time, and settle down for
the last repose, may they pass eas
ily and naturally Into a better and
fairer land, where the grass Is for
ever green, and neither flies nor
tiger men can molest them or make
them afraid."
Wed Six Times, It
Will Be Her Final
Hollywood Cal.—Only thirty years
old and married six times. Mrs. Eu
genia Bankhead - Hoyt - Lee
White. says she is just an “incurable
optimist,” when it comes to matri
mony.
She has returned here with her
latest husband, Edward Ennis
"Teddy” White, 34, New York bro
ker, whom she wed a few days ago
near A«ua Caliente. Lower Cali
fornia. Mexico. Mrs. White , daugh
ter of Representative William B.
Bankhead of Alabama, was married
three times to Morton M, Hoyt.
"I really haven’t been marrying
just, for pastime.” she said last
night. "Until now I have simply
failed to find the right man. I am
more firmly convinced at this time
that I have found the right one.^I
have known Teddy for ten years.*
She said there would not be an
other marriage "if this one fails.”
White has been married before. His
name at first was reported from
Mexico to be "Smith."
The garment trades are growing In
North Carolina. More than four
thousand people are now employed
in these industries.

/ Graf Malces First Eancling on Water^
For the first time in its career, the pant Graf Zep
pelin was landed on the water when it came to rest
majestically on Lake Constance, Switzerland* with
out the aid of any landing crew. The test landing
on water was arranged in preparation for the North
y Pole flight of the Graf, in the course of which th.%
| Zeppelin will attempt to establish contact with Sir
Hubert Wilkins of the Arctic submarine Nautilus.
I The Graf is shown on Lake Constance, where it
1 appears to be resting as easily as an over-sizeddack.
