Eisks Lives to
Avoid a Collision
Cottage Grove, Or Oct. 28. Risking
the Uvea of hts family and others In
the oar to prevent what seemed like
an unavoidable collision with another
car, "W. B. Cooper, while coming home
from Eugene early Sunday evening,
drove his car into a covered ditch. All
the occupants were thrown out but
none was injured beyond a few
scratches. The car was taken from
the ditch apparently uninjured. The
accident occurred at what Is known as
the second grade crossing this side of
Eugene where there is a dangerous
bend in the road. Two other cars going
in opposite directions had' stopped,
completely blocking the road. Not
anticipating such an emergency, the
Cooper car, which was following close
ly the car going in the same Direc
tion, was placed in a dangerous pre
dicament. Mr. Cooper took the wheel
from Mrs. Cooper, who had been driv
ing, and attempted to pass the cars by
crowding into the bushes beside the
road. The bushes, however, had grown
over a ditch, into which the car
dropped. Besides Mr. and Mrs. Cooper
and two children. Miss Ruth Johnson
and Mrs. C. E. Frost were in the car.
A car was sent from here to bring
the party into the city.

By Alice Rohe.
Vienna, Oct. 6. (By courier to
Rome, thence by mall to New York).
Vienna is a city of lost hope, of
gloom, of gray despair.
The once gayest and most beautiful
capital in Kurope is today the saddest,
the most distressed. Silent, hopeless
protests against the horrors of the war
which has turned this wonderful, joy
ous place Into a melancholy sepulchre
for the living come from every stratum
I have seen a procession of 490,
mothers whose husbands died in Ga
licia, carrying in their arms their
fatherless babes. They filed past the
great cold ministry of war. It was
their mute appeal for peace.
I have seen a procession ef little
children, nlaintive and futile emis
saries of life, silently protesting
against needless death.
Arrest Betnming Troops.
I have seen trains arriving every
one crowded to suffocation with the
wounded and dying. From the midst
of these maimed and mutilated, sick
ened and suffering men, I have seen
uncomprehending soldiers, dazed by
the horrors of war, crazed with joy at
being home again, dragged from their
companions and placed under arrest
Why, in their delirium ' of excite
ment they had cried out curses against
one which moves the Viennese to de
spair. I talked with one of these wounded
soldiers as the car in. which he was
being carried stopped in front of the
Burg theatre for repairs. He told me
in whispers, while the guards were
busy with the car, of the frightful
ravages made by the Russians and
Servians on the Austrian forces.
Dead Buried In Xaps.
"They have buried our dead in
heaps," he said, tears coursing down
his face. "They were killed like sheep
driven to a slaughter yard. The Rus
sian artillery has done unbelievable
"The Russians waste their ammuni
tion as though it were as free as air.
Their infantry is not good, but how
terrible is their artillery how terrible!"
The spirit of patriotism among the
Vienniese amounts to Its highest, as
these wounded men are being conveyed
through the Btreets. Before the war
ministry, beside the monument of
Marie Theresa and of Prince Schwar
senberg, the cannon and arms cap
tured from the Russians are on view.
The people never tire of caressing
them. The meaner signs of Austrian
success are like gleams of hope in a
leaden sky of despair.
The churches are constantly filled
with women and children praying for
husbands and fathers and brothers
The feudal prince who !s among the

Everywhere one, hears criticism of

Their avarice and selfishness, the peo-

had believed that in such an hour even
their tightened purses would open. The
