With the present encouraging
outlook for factories, Capo Girar
deau seems to be putting the
risht foot foremost, with the
view of making this town a real
live wire in the manufacturing
industries. If good judgment
is used there is no doubt that the
factories already promised will
materialize?. The big box board
factory alone will be worth the
time and money to land. If the
men who propose to head the
plant are really sincere in asking
ground here for the same, they
will have few reasons to turn
down any reasonable offer from
the local promoters, a3 Cape Gi

were notified of the son's mis
fortune and arrived Monday

As a result of the meeting of
the railroad officials with the
Commercial Club, better train
service for Cape Girardeau is
promised. Many changes in the
passenger schedules wan sug
gested and approved by ail con
cerned. A new time table af
fecting trains. that run in and
out of thi3 city will likely soon
be issued showing many im
provements over the old sched
ule. Perhaps the most impor
tant addition to the service will
be the adding of a local accomo
dation train from Cape Girardeau
to Caruthersville, to leave this
city at seven 'clock in the
morning. The following of
ficials represented the railroad
interest: General Passenger
Agent Hilton of St. Louis; Gen
