; HATS AKD GBOCERTES.
This popular firm is composed of E.
W. Flentge, E. A. Johnston and C.i
l Stone. Tha seaior member, Mr.
Flentge, was bora and raisud in Cape
Girardeau County and entered mer
cantile life at the aga of 20. rears as
cleric for H, P. Peiroanett in the year
lSDi, and remained bo employed untU
the fall of 1838, whon ha launched his
bark on the turbulent siraaaa ol rasr
cantile competition on his own : ac
count, organizing- tbe firm of .Flentge
& Wood. Continuing this partner
ship until Aug. 1394, at the same time
as this firm of Flentge & Wood was
doing business at Cape Girardeau,
they had a branch firm atJackjon,
this State and -County, under ; frm
name of Snider & Heinberg. Af ;the
time of the dissolution of Flentge &
Wood, Mr. Wood bought the Jackson
store and Mr. Flentge remaining at
Cape Girardeau and organizing the
firm of Flentge & Heinberg, which
partnership continued until May, 1S97.
when the present firm of Flentge, John
ston & - Co. was organized. Mr.
Flentge's business career is certainly
a successful one; he is a" young man
yet and by patient toil and strict in
tegrity, be has won a high place in the
commercial world, and the .friendship
or a legion 01 inends. Mr. Flentge is
ments in his large stfOre. ;
Mr. E. A. Johnston is the bright
particular genius that can always be
found ?'hustling" for outside trade.
Mr. Johnson has just returned from
one of these trips of five days Jur
ation, and in that short space of time
sold hfteen large wholesale orders, and
placing his goods in Advance, Puxico,
Poplar Bluff, Van Buren, Piedmont,
Leper and Mill Springs. Mr. John
ston is an old "Knight of tbe Grip."
and has bad remarkable suecess. Mr.
Johnston is- a native of Illinois, and
at the tender a,go of twelve years he
visited St. Louis and was at once in
terested in bdsin-iss as it is conducted
in large cities By chanca he passed
the large store of Dodd, Brown & Co.
and seeing tbe many men employed
there, he decided to chance his fortunes
in that direction. He boldly walked
into the store and asked for employ
ment, and wasAsked t return to-morrow,
but by a persistent to-day will
do as well, he was employed at once
as "Elevator boy". By gradual Dro
motionwell earned) he was sent on
the road by his employers in the year
1884. The following year, 1885, there
was a change in the firm of Dodd,
Brown & Co. . They wore succeeded
by Brown, Doughty & Co.: and he con
tinued on the road for that lirm until
they retired from business in 1891, by
selling'their stock of goods to Sam'l
C. Dayiff & Co. Davis & Co. were by
the terms of sale to keep 20 of the best
men of the old firm, Mr. Johnston be
ing fortunate, and meriting it. was
chosen as one for the new firm. This
firm by reason of death, retired from
business in January, 1897, when Mr.
Johnston entered . the house of Ely
Walker Co., and continues there un-
present firm of Flentge, Johnston &
Co. This large and varied experience
makes him. eminently postjd in prices
and bis large acquaintance amongst
the trade, gives him advantages for
cheap purchases, consequently he can
sell cheaper. There is no cleverer a
gentleman or a man of sounder busi
ness principles found anywhere than
Mr. Johnson, and a harder worker
and greater bustler after bargains i
than he can not be found.
' Mr. C. F. Stone, the Company of
this tt m, has had a business experi
ence of years, and he is thoroughly i
abreast of the needs of the times. , He '
has special chargeof thelargeGrocery
Department of this firm and is con
stantly on the lookout for bargains.
Takiog all together, there s not a
more popular, progressive and strict
ly honest firm in this State. All three
partners are young men and have
their lives before. them. Royally are
they using it to the best interest of
their business and their patrons.

CAPE BREWERY A ICE CO. , ;
Sis years ago there was no brewery
or ice factory, in Cape Girardeau.
There tad been three breweries here
Casper Uhl's, Ferd. Hanny's and
Fritz Henninger's at one - time, but
they were all shut down at that date
and St Louis beer alone was handled.
Like tho woollen mill and other man
ufacturing enterprises of Capa Cirar
deaa they had all failed. -
To establish the new Cape Girardeau
brewery a stock company- was organ
ized with-a capital of $23,500 and was
incorporated on November 25, 1801,
oy Aaoipn wueaiger, sr.;- tranic v .
Feuerb&cher and Louis-F. Kloster-
mann as the Cape Brewery and ice
Company. .- The , plant ; was entirely
renovated with the latest improved
macninery for . brewing ' and the ice
mailt was also refitted for rnfrs.t.inns.
Mr. RueSiger was made president of
tne company, tie was also the mana
ger of the brewery and on his shrewd
head and broad shoulders developed
the main responsibility of bearing the
brnnt of the war waged relentlessly
against this home industry by the
millionaire brewing fiirms St Louis.
Cincinnati and Milwaukee. -
For. a white- the orosDect looked
gloomy. Everything was against the
local brewery. Our citizens were
diffident about patronizing its product
or purcnasmg its 6tocK. Tne grit and
energy of the incorporators, aided by
tne manager's skiii, hnaliy prevailed.
Little by-little the enterprise grow in
favor. ; To-day it controls practically
the entire local market, besides ship
ping large quantities of beer to other
places anda number of our mostprora
inent citizens . are amoag its stock
Until the present year, the brewery
has been managed by . Mr.. Adolph
Ruediger, Sr., but that responsibility
has recently heen transferred to his
son, Mr, Adolph Ruediger, Jr., -who
has provelhis fitness. forthe position
by graduating from the American
Brewing Academy, of Chicago, one
of the best in tha world:
The growing demand for ice has led
to the invention of machines for its
manufacture in countries where the
home supply is insufficient The arti
ficial refrigeration of water is the
problem to be solved. The required
low temperature is produced at the
Cape ice plant by volatizing, that is
evaporating, amonia. - The original
filant .: of She Cape , Brewery, and
ca Co., has been more ; than
doubled in capacity within the past
two months and now produces fcom
twelve to fourteen tons a day. : As
there are 5C0 cans, each with a capac
ity of 300 pounds, the output can be
increased whenever necessary. The
process of congelation is-.simplo.
Water, -which has, been distilled., to
kill th.3 germs, i3 run through the re
boiler "through cooling pipes and
through a charcoal filter Into the cold
storage tank. From this the cans are
automatically filled by ; means of a
fifty-foot hose, lhese cans are next
plunged into tanks containing brine.
Around tho interior surface of each
tank are coiled pipes containing con
densed ammonia from thecompressor.
It is the evaporation of this compress
ed ammonia that causes the requisite
low temperatore and turns the distill
ed water in tho cans into ice. - Brine
is -used ta float tbe cans because it re
mains liquid at a lower' temperatute
thantae freezing point ol water. ; .
The most suggestive ifact connected
with theCape Brewery & IceCompany
that it has succeeded where others had
failed. This shows that tbe succes
of an enterorise largely depends on its
management. Itssuccess also demon
strates that the reason why Cape Gtr
ardean has not other factories is not
becausi of its lack of facilities but
because of its lack of the right kind f
men to undertake and carry on. such,

RETAIL -DY GOCCS. ' -.-
Mr. David A.Glena is one of Cape
Girardeau's most -enterprising and
honored merchants. Mr. Gkms was
horn in Lyons County, Ktntuelfv, in
the year 1851, where ' be received a
liberal education. :; At the age of Vi
yeas-s I.ir.. Glenn i arrived In Cape
Girardeau with the muniiioant sum
of $19.59 in his pocket, Being a man
of strong determination, and nothing
daunted, he started boldly out to
make a name and iortime for himself,
how well he succeeded, the large bus
iness themanyand deversitied interests
ha represents tell the tale only to well.
In the early part of his careet Mr.
Glenn adopted as his motto, honesty
and integrity for all, r.t all Jtrces".
This high standard' of manhood Is the
guiding star of hi3 successful career.
After a few days sojourn in Cape
Girardeau, Mr. Glenn found employ
ment with Leech Bros., as clerk and
continued so until the year 1379. On
the first day of April, 1879 Mr. Glenn
was ablo after years of toil and
economy ta enter business on bis own
account. Renting a store at the fool
of main street,-; and with' a limited
capital he'started for St Louis to bay
his first stock of goods. Mr. Glenn,
had a hard time to make his meager
purse pay tor tne many Kind ol foods
wantea. After a ctecktred strdjrgrie
he managed to buy S3,5tH) worth of
goods, rieturning- to Capa Girardeau
with bis goods and opening-them op.
He made an instant success, and ri2tu
here Mr. Glenn adopted his life-Ion
rule of honesty, by selling goods us
they were, on there own merits, and
not by false representation.
Mr. Olenn s success from that time
to this was made step by step, and
each Tear saw his business prosper
and Increase, his present o uartera be
came to small for his increased busi-
nrss in 1891. -..-
He purchased a nice lot and consult
ing a good architect, the present l&rze
store (the finest one in Southeast Mis
souri was tne. result of that consulta
tion. Removing to this magnificent
6tore Mr. Glenn's business career be
gau in earnest, and branching out, be
cas to day a large, if not the largest
wholesale trado in Squthoast Missouri.
Mr. Gienn's store is a paradise of neat
ness, where goods of the highest
grades are kept in . large quantities.
One thing that can not be overlooked
in Mr, Glenn's store, is this; all sales
men are strictly prohibited from mak
ing any unknown claims on goods, if
goods are cotton they are to say so
regardkss of sale. If wool, they can
say so. If they are not acquainted
with the quality of goods they mast
frankly say so, which system makes
it as safe for a ' child tOj . buy as a
grown person," and hasj proven of
such high value that to iieution the
mme of Glenn in ' connection with a
purchase i3 to disarm any suspicion
which may attach to any goods.
Mr. Glenn is a progressive citizen,
a man of honor and a truo man in
svery sense of the word.- He is presi
