Cape Girardeau from the time he was

Although he had been critically ill
for many months, the announcement of
his death was a distinct shock to his

whom he came in constant contact. A

Hirschberg of St. Louis, has received
from Lady William Vernon, mother of
William W. Vernon.
The body of the young soldier was
buried in an unmarked grave behind
the lines of battle, and his relatives
will never be able to distinguish his
mound from those of his comrades,
which dot the devastcd land of con

Lady Vernon, who is now living in
"The Grange," her country estate, at
Coslsdon Surrey, England, had receiv
ed only the mere announcement that
her son had died in one of the British
offensive movements, when she com
municated with her sister in St. Louis.
Lady Vernon, in looking through the
effects of the dead soldier, found a
number of letters written to young
Vernon from friends in Cape Girar

to obtain the addresses of a number
of young men and young women in the
Cape so that she could communicate

Lieut. Vernon was a civil engineer,
and came to the Cape three years ago
to work on the Frisco construction
work along the river front. He re
mained here until the early winter of
1914, or several months after the war
broke out. While here he was a so

departure for Canada, where he em

until late last summer. He was for a
time with an engineer corps and later
entered training quarters for service
in the trenches.
His fearless work in active service
wen prompt recognition from his su
periors, and he wa promoted in rapid
succession. He participated in several
attempts of the British and French
to dislodge the Germans frtm their
tie front, but escaped uninjured until
the attack of Oct. 15. He was charg

the brain caused him to drop dead on
the field. Owing to the furious fight

before his body was recovered. When
the British got possession of it, the

Lieut. Vernon comes from a distin

His mother was a Miss Frost, and was
born m St. Louis. Lord Vernon, father
of William, died many years ago. He
belonged to an influential family in
London, England, but Lord Vernon
spent many years in the United States,
making his home in St. Louis.
With the receipt of the news of
Lieut. Vernon's death.it became known
in the Cape yesterday that William
Seybourn, a nephew of the late Capt.
Alt, had been made a cripple during
the fighting in France. Mr. Seybourn
lived in the Cape for four years, dur
ing the time he was interested with
Capt Alt in Southeast Missouri land.
In a recent letter to N. C. Frissell, the
well-known civil engineer, Mr. Sey

military hospital in Kent, England, re

had virtually regained his health, but
he said the wound in the leg had ren
dered him unfit for further service at
the front. He is now in a military
training school, where he is training
recruits for active service.

News of the wedding of Mrs. Laura
Jung and Charles Walthers reached
their friends in the Cape yesterday.
The couple were married quietly on
Monday afternoon at Benton, whence
they stole away without the knowl
edge of their friends. The news was
quite a surprise, as nobody had sus
pected that they were engaged.
The bride is the widow of the late
Henry Jung, a lightning-rod agent,
who died some time ago. She has one
child. The bridegroom is a carpenter
and emanates from a prominent fam
ily of Cape County. He has been em
ployed by the Taylor Bros., a contract,
ing firm, which is erecting the new
laundry on Sprigg street. He has two
children, a girl and a boy, by his
Mr. Walthers has been making his
home with his sister, Mrs. Frederick
Curry, who lives on Hanover street.
Mrs. Jung has been living on Bloom
field street, near Pacific. She left the
beautiful home on the Jackson road
shortly after the death of her husband
some two years ago, and moved to the
address on Bloomfield street.
Nothing was known of the mar
riage until friends were told by the
couple after their return Tuesday
morning. They slipped away quietlv
and went to Benton in the automobile
of a friend, without confiding in him
the intent and purpose of their trip.
Just where the couple will make their
future home is not yet definitely
known. They will most likely retain
the old home of the bride, who has
been living: with her mother. '
