has been filling the pulpit at Trinity I
German Lutheran Church in the Cape,
Sunday delivered his last sermon here.
He will depart for New York in
about five weeks and on Dec. 2-'l, he
will set sail for his South American
post. He has been called to become
a missionary in a Lutheran settlement
of about 40,000 people.

a condition of his going to South

Kramer filled the pulott at Trinity
Church in the absence of Rev. A. Wil

The young substitute is a native of
this part of the State and is well
known in the community. He lacks
about seven months of having com
pleted his theological education in the
schools, but his acceptance of the call
to 66uth America will make up for
him, the credits that he lacks.

CAPE ROCK FOSSILS
Carry Off 150 Pounds of Rare
Specimens After Few
Cape Rock was a stamping ground for
fossils Sunday afternoon and yester
day. Prof. D. K. Gregor. of the de
partment of geology of the Univer
sity of Missouri, and F. A. Samson,
bibliographer of the Missouri Histor
ical Society, visited there and carried
away about l."0 pounds of various
specimen fossils that will be used in
the scientific laboratories at Colum
bia. Both men are authorities on geology
and the latter is a scientist who is
known probably better in Eastern sci
entific centers and in Europe than he
is right in his home State.
The men gathered the specimens
that they wish to use by picking them
from the face of exposed rocks ami by
getting them out of the ground. A
study of the fossils that have gather-1
ed will reveal the character of the
plant and animal life that prevailed
in this section of the world many hun
dreds of years ago.
Both men departed from the Cape
yesterday afternoon to go to St. Marys j
where they will conduct scientific ex- i
peditions up both the Little and Big
Mr. Samson recently gave a coliec
tion of shells and geological specimens
all valued at $80,000 which it took him
a lifetime to gather together, to the
State. He has had more than a score :
of things in his line of scientific work
named after him.
