CONTEST IS ONLY
PRACTICE FOR CAPE
Coach Corleau of the Normal Re
ports the Game for The
Tribune.
The Normal eleven cruf bed the team
of the Will Mayfield in a game played
yesterday at the Fairgrounds. The
score was 111 to 0 in favor of the
Normals. A fusillade of touch-downs
was made by the latter while their op
ponents tried vainly to score. The Will
Mayfield team was on the defensive
from start to finish. This is probably
the largest score ever piled up by any
team on the local grounds. The coach
of the Cape team reported the game
for The Tribune, which follows:
By F. J. Courleux.
The Normal School eleven found it
self yesterday afternoon at the Fair
grounds and buried its small adver
saries under a shower of touch-downs.
Seventeen touch-downs and 0 goals
from touch-downs were the result of
the "pep" the Normalites exhibited.
The cause of this sudden display of
lighting spirit may be attributed to the
cold weather, but close friends ef the
players say the boys have had a great
desire to feel the joy of romping
rough-shod over some body else, just
as the C. B. C. boys did to them in
St. Louis. Every played on the team
is happy today as each of them feels
he played his part in rolling the lar
gest score ever made by a Cape Nor
mal team.
The team from Marble Hill was
light and inexperienced and were on
the defense up to the end of the game,
but were at a loss to solve the over
head game of the Normals. Parker
and Dudley, at ends, played a great
game. Seven touch-downs was their
lot, most of them from passes which
they pulled out of the air and convert
ed into points. Parker also added eight
goals after touch-downs out of eleven
tries. Parker's work is more note
worthy considering the fact that he
has been suffering from a twisted knee
all season.
The backfield, Ranney, Cline, Black
and Lathem, worked like a clock when
on the offense. Black had the team on
its toes from start to end, and used
gcod judgment in selecting his plays,
in getting the players to execute them.
Ranney, Cline and Black each got
two touch-downs, while Lathem got
one besides the pleasure of sending
"Zeppelins" into the outstretched hands
of Parker and Dudley. Lahmeyer,
Joyce and Crecelius each scored one
touch-down. Crecelius, besides getting
a touch-down, gave the spectators and
the visiting team a chance to see real
kicking. "Crecy" had his trusty well
oiled, and on nearly every kick-off,
sent the oval from 40 to C5 yards.
HLs kicks were high and long, giving
his teammates sufficient time to get
near the fellow who was unfortunate
enough to get it.
The visiting team made first down
by pushing through the line. Their
plays were usually smothered by the
Cape team fcefore well started, and if
the man carrying the ball did get past
the end, he met a worse fate. Ran
ney and Joyce had on their tackling
clothes and received many well-earned
comments on their hard, low, clean
cut tackling.
Marble Hill won the choice and was
elected to kick. At 3:15 o'clock the ball
got its start, and in eight rushes, the
first touch-down was made; Cline got
it. Just one minute before the game
ended Crecelius was shifted from cen
ter to left end. A long pass from La
them and "Crccy" made the last touch
down. Between those two touch-downs
and at the rate of one every three
minutes or less, the other 15 were
tallied.
Coach Zimmermann of Jackson ref
ereed the game and kept both teams
playing fast ball, allowing no time for
arguments or "jawing."

celius, left end; Klaus, Farrar, left

TWO FIRES IN 1
NIGHT DESTROYS
SOUTH CAPEHOME
Building, Occupied by Harry
Barringer on Fountain,
Reduced to Ruins.
1ST BLAZE QUENCHED,
2ND TAKES BUILDING
Machen Residence on BeHevue
Street Also Damaged by
Afternoon Blaze.
Two fires in the Cape yesterday aft
ernoon and last night kept the depart
ment occupied until after 4 o'clock
this morning. The first alarm came
from the .Machen hame on BeHevue
street and the second from the .south
ern part of the city.
The lire department returned short
ly after 10 o'clock last night from 026
South Fountain street, where a con
flagration in a residence had been ex
tinguished. Three hours later the de
partment was summoned back to the
building, where the blaze had been re
kindled. The firemen made a record run to
the scene, but the building was en
gulfed in flames when they reached
the ?.cene. For more than two hours
the battle between the firemen and the
conflagration raged, but the blaze was
finally quenched. The home, how
ever, was reduced to ruins. The total
loss could not be estimated last night.
Chief French of the fire department
told a representative of The Tribune
that the lire was caused by an over
heated furnace. Ho said every tra; ?
of the blaze had been extinguished be
fore the department left the lioi;s
early in the evening. Ho attributes the
second blaze to some smoldering em
bers that were hidden in the walls and
caused the flames to break out anew.
The home was occupied by Harry
Dai ringer and family. The first blaze
was discovered in the building shortly
after 0 o'clock, while the BarriniTrs
were attending a picture show. The
alarm was turned in by a pedestrian
who happened to be passing. He saw
smoke issuing from the windows of
the upper story of the building and
sounded an alarm.
The fire department made a quick
run to the scene and soon had the blaze
under control. A window was shat
tered with the nozzle of the hose and
within less than live minutes the tire
was supposed to be out.
The firemen examined the building
to make sure that the- fire was
quenched, and when convinced that the
blaze was out, they returned to the
station. Only a small hole was burn
ed in the floor of th kitchen by the
first blaze. The second condae-: ation
wiped out the household effects and
destroyed the building. No one was
injured. i
Shortly before noon yesterday the
home of H. L. Mac-hen. "15 BeHevue
street, which is occupied by his moth
er, was damaged by a fire that orig
inated upon the roof.
The flames were confined to the up
per part of the building but the water,
which leaked into the house, damaged
the interior of the building and house
hold goods.
It is believed that the fire was caus
ed by sparks that came from the chim
ney and fell on the roof.

WILD TURKEY FEAST
AT FREEMAN'S CAFE
A wild turkey dinner a spread with
plenty of white meat, dark meat, cran
berries, "stuflin'," celery, "French
fries," more white meat and cranber
ries and then some more dark meat
last night formed the center of a dual
celebration at the Crescent Cafe.
The banquet was a testimonial of
Chris M. Freeman's accuracy with
his shotgun and at the same time was
in honor of the forty-third anniver
sary of City Clerk R. W. Frissell, who
was a guest of honor.
Mv. and Mrs. Freeman were hosts
at the long banquet table that was
drawn up in their restaurant after
1 their regular diners had been served.
The red-legged gobbler that brvame
the center of attraction was slain vir
tually in the suburbs of the Cape. It
was the third that Mr. Freeman
brought down within 24 hours.
Last night as the large slices of
white meat went the rounds of the
table and here and there a:i enthu
siastic diner brandished a "drum
stick." .Mr. Freeman told the story of
how iie bagged the gobbler. The bird,
when dressed weighed about twenty

Mr. Frissell, who celebrated his
birthday yesterday, is a native of tlu
Cape. He is a son of Mr. and Mrs.
N. C. Frissell and he has been City
j Clerk for the la.t year and a quarter.
When lie was requested la.-t night
to act as toastmaster, he eyed the
white mrat and cranberries and re
plied: "I don't like toat. 0:ut your

i Since Mr. Freeman's successes have
j been made known in the Cape, several
hunt'ng parties have been organized, in
the Cape to visit the turkey infested
districts south of the city. Motorists
who have arrived recealy in the Cape
after passing over the Hock Levee
road declare that they have been able
to see the wild turkeys from the road,
and John Dohognc declared the other
day he saw three in the roadway that
refused to take flight when his auto
approached.
WASEM EXPECTS TO
BE HERE FOR X-MAS
The condition of H. C. Wasem. the
well-known druggist of Haarig, is im
proving so rapidly that it is believed
he will be back home for a Christmas
dinner. This was the contents of a
telegram sent bv Mrs. Wasem. who is
at the bedside of her husband.
I Mr. Wasem was operated on by Dr.
! Charles Mayo, the well-known surgeon
! of Rochester, Minn. He rallied rap
! idlv and began to show signs of im
provement immediately after the oper
ation. Mrs. Wasem, who has been with her
husband since he went to Rochester
two weeks ago, will b? back some
time next week. She states in the tele
gram, which was sent to the employes
of the drug store, that 5he expects to
be back in the Cape the first of next
week.
Mr. Wasem is so confident of com
plete recovery that he remarked in the
message, he intended to partake of a
turkey feast when he returned to the
Cape. For more, than a year he has
been on a diet of railk and eggs.
PRIEST EULOGIZES
FATHER MURTAUGH
! Life Long Friend oi Dead Clergy-
man Says Death Had No
Sting for Him.
An impressive ceremony, perpetuat
ing the memory of Fatner James A.
Murtaugh, was held yesterday morn
ing at St. Vincent's Catholic Church,
on South Spanish street. A large
crowd from the parish attendee! the
ceremony, which was marked by a
beautiful tribute by Rev. Father Von
Tourenhout of Ste. Genevieve, a life
long friend of Father Mtutaugh.
The solemn requiem mass was cele
brated by Rev. Father I.evan, presi
dent of the college; Father Muhlsieper,
of Kelso, was deacon, and Father M.
D. Collins, of Jackson, subdeacon.
Father Walsh was the master of cere
monies, and Father Connors, thurefer.
A score of priests from the neighbor
ing towns were in the sanctuary. Mem
bers of the Knights of Columbus at
tended in a body.
Father Von Tourenhout, a noted pul
pit orator, chose the text, "Mihi vivere,
Christus est, et mori lucrum." which
means "For me to live is Christ and
to die is gain." Guided by these words,
Father Von Tourenhout touched on the
Hfo of tho iocf,asfy! and showed that
his life was a positive proof of the
Biblical quotation, which he chose as
his theme.
He mentioned the universality of
death sparing no one, coming at any
time and conquering all. "Naturally
r-V.r;-t tenches that there is at
'i better world after this one. Thi
---- - - i
hf4 -
i lief made St. Paul crv out: Oh, death
where is thy sting; oh. grave where is
thy victory! Christ robbed death of its
sting."
Father Von Tourenhout then turned
to the life of his late friend, whom he
described as a religious leader, as an
educator, as a missionary, and above
all, as a priest who lived as Christ
decreed, and therefore, for him death
had not sting. In conclusion the speak
er said : "All glorif v the war hero who i
go forth conquering nations and cities,
but at the same time causing dest rue-
aition and making widows and orphans.
i How very much more praise-worthy
the educator, the missionary or the
priest who builds up and strengthens
instead of teaming down and destroy
ing?
Much m;ht he snid of Father Mur-
targVs offo-ls towards civic inprove
ment :rd social progress, especially
here in Cap" Girardeau, and about
many other things that he attempted
and accomplished, but after all, his
great work was his spiritual work to
the souls of men. His work as a
Catholic priest certainly after his
many years of priestly service he could
say: "For me io live is Christ and to
die is gain!" Blessed are they who
co ami do in like manner.'"

GIRL, DRESSED AS A
MAN, HELD IN SOUTH
Stenographer Says She Became a
Hobo to be With Pugilist
She Loves.
Memphis, Tenn., Nov. 17. Vera
Harrison, 18 years old, dressed in a
boy's suit, told while occupying a cell
in the Memphis jail how she had "ho
boed" all the way from Houston, Tex.,
to this city posing as a man.
She was in love with Terry Ketchell,
a prize fighter, and when she found
he was coming north she decided to
accompany him. He had no money.
He told her he was going to "hobo."
Undaunted, she procured a suit of male
attire and one night boarded a freight
train in the Houston yards. The couple
made their way northward, frequently
being put oft trains. At Anniston,
Ketchell got work in a munition fac
tory. After a few weeks Ketchell de
cided to come to Memphis, where he
heard he could probably get a bout
with a local fighter. He was looking
for the sportsman when a policeman
noticed the form of his companion,
concluded "it" was a woman anrt
placed them under arrest. The girl
said she had been married to Norris
Ela, mate on a steamer.
"Terry is a prize fighter," said the
girl. "He licked the champion light
weight of Texas and beat Jimmy Pa
pas, the Greek. Terry is the best boy
in the whole world. He loves me and
I love him, and some day when we
both get out of here, we're going to
get married. Terry's been a father
and a big brother to me ever since we
! left and started hoboing.
"We've hopped freight trains to
gether, ridden the blind baggage to
gether, camped in the woods, and h?
always has been the same boy. He
has protected me from other tramps
on freight trains, bought me food
when he didn't have enough money to
buy anything for himself, and stood
by me all the way through.
"I am a stenographer. I worked
at Svift & Co.'s plant in Galveston
until I married Norris Ela. I didnt
marry him because I loved him; it
was simply to get away from home,
where my mother and father treated
me mean. Terry advised me to stick
to my husband. My father took me
to San Antonio, Tex., to break up the
attachment between us, but I left and:
joined Terrv at Houston.
KINDER WILL OPPOSE
KAGE IN THE SPRING
James A. Kinder, the Haarig drug
gist, is going to be a candidate for
Mayor at the April election, accord
ing to the reports from every quarter
of the city- He has not publicly stated
whether he would make the race, but
his close friends say he has given them
his promise to run.
His entry will eliminate Ctto Koch
titzky, who had been counted on to
make another efTort to land the job.
He wag defeated two years ago, but it
was generally understood that he
would try again.
Most of the Kochtitzky following of
two years ago have lined up for the
Haarig man. Kinder was formerly
chairman of the Democratic County
Committee.
Friends of Mayor Kage have been
urging him to come out for re-election,
and while it is believed that he
will run again, he has not so officially
declared his intentions.
Councilman Medley last night stated
that he had conferred with Mayor
Kage concerning the campaign in the
spring, and he is convinced that the
Mayor will make the race.
Four members of the City Council
are also to be elected next spring.
The councilmen whose terms expire
are: Walter D. Black, first ward;
Charles Armgardt, second; Charles
Kaess, third; Jay A. Fowler, fourth.
Mr. Armgardt, who has announced
himself as a candidate for Chief of
Police, will be eliminated from the race
for council. Roscoe O'Connell, it is
said, will be a candidate for council in
the first ward. Mr. Black was once
ouoted as saying he would not run
again, but his friends have urged him
to make the race. Mr. Fowler has not
decided whether he cares to run for
office again. In the event that he de
cides to step out, Capt. J. L. Stout
will be a candidate for the council in
the fourth ward. His friends have
been urging him to enter the political
arena for several years, but he has
never consented to do so.
DOING THE WORK.
W. T. Nanney, Noel, Mo., writes,
"Your B. A. Thomas' Hog Powder is
doing the work down in this part of
the world. It proved to be what we
need to prevent and cure hog cholera
and spel worms."

ARMLESS MAN HERE,
DRIVINGBIG AUTO
Ohioan is Expert Chauffeur and
Writes With His
Month.
Frank E. Fithen, an armless auto
mobile wonder, arrived in the Cape
yesterday afternoon, accompanied by
his wife. They came here in their
scarlet-red luxurious "Oakland-Six,
Speedster" in which they are making
their third tour of the United States.
The armless wizard attracted quite
a crowd as he stopped on the street
corners and demonstrated his skill in
chauiTeuring an automobile with the
stumps of his arms. These are cut off
above the elbow.
The steering wheel of the machine
is made for the specific use of the arm
less man. There are several rings in
the wheel, and in these he holds his
arms while operating the car. To show
his certainty and cleverness in run
ning his automobile, Fithen gave a
demonstration of quick stops, backing
up and slow driving. After each dem
onstration he would offer photographs
of himself and wife for sale.
His skill in motoring without arms
does not limit his cleverness. He writes
as good a hand as a trained penman,
and he writes with his mouth. He will
push the pencil or writing utensil b?
tween his teeth and write anything
just as well as any other person would
with the use of his hands.
Fithen, who is stopping at the St.
Charles Hotel, is on his third trip
through the United States. His na
tive town is Steubenville. O.. where
he and his wife reside. He lost his
arms in a railroad wreck when only
nine years old.
The couple intend to leave the Cape
this morning. They will go to Dyers
burg, Tenn., where they expect to ar
rive this evening. They stored their
machine in Black's garage on Broad
way. RUSSELL DEFEATED

MILK IN WINTER
Why do vour cows give less milk in
winter than they do in summer? Just
because nature does not supply them
with grasses and green food. But we
have come to the assistance of Dame
Nature with B. A. Thomas Stock
Remedy which contains the very in
gredients that the green feed supplies
in season, only, of course, in a more

Earl MrClintic Plays Star Role in
Opening Game, but Slumps
Under Pressure.
The Wizards, one of the new teams
i in the bowling league, last night trim
med their opponents, the Wonders, to
the tune of three games in succession.
It was the first match game for most
of the men who made up the two
teams and both teams went to the al
leys with blood in their eyes.
Karl McClinto,k, the midget crack
shot of the Wonders, helped to hrinv;
his team's s: on into the hi? league
class with a mark of 10 in the first
game, but he was unable to hold the
pace throughout the match and hi f
forts failed to win the contest.
The game last night complete.-, the
first round of a 20-week tournament
among the six teams that have be n
organized and the winners have been
the Royals, the Ideals and the Wiz

into their hands for the first time this
fall and show evidence of developing
into first-class men.
