Professor Whitlen Explains Decline 'f
Grape Culthntion In the State
The attitude of the people of Mis
souri towards the use of liquor has
killed the grape growing industry
that flourished here, especially along
the bluffs, fifty years ago, says Prof.
J. C. Whitten of the College of Agri
culture. With the wave of prohibition that
swept the country went the practice
of every farmer growing grapes to
make his own wine. However, the
industry will be revived in a few
years, because grapes are coming into
demand as table delicacies. In the'"" ""'- "" " "" w.

Conference at Hamilton Last
' Week Would Furnisb
Extra Pastor.
Committee Appointed to In
, vestigate the Matter
Church Services Today.
A movement for establishing a
Methodist guild hall in Columbia and
the placing of a competent Methodist
minister in charge was started in
Hamilton, Mo., last week at the sec
ond business session of the Missouri
Conference of the Methodist Episco
pal Church. Dr. S. B. Campbell of
Springfield. Mo., a member of the St.
Louis Conference appeared before the
meeting there in the interest of this
proposition. He said a committee of
three men had been appointed by the
St. Louis Conference to investigate
and obtain data on the subject and
advised that the Missouri Conference
appoint a similar committee to co-operate
with the men of the other Con
ference. "I have figures from Irwin Switzler.
registrar of the University of Mis
souri," he said, "which show that
there are about 700 Methodist stu
dents attending the state institution
at Columbia. Altogether there are
about 1000 students who could be
' brought into the fold of Methodism
I there. It Is necessary that the Meth
odist Church do something for the
spiritual guidance of these young men
and women.
"I believe we should place in Col
umbia a preacher experienced in the
handling of young people to guide
them and keep them from falling
I away from our church. He should be
i ' . ,
able to command a salary
of from
$3500 to $4500 a year."
It was decided at the meeting that
a committee would be appointed to
work in conjunction with the one
from the St. Louis Conference in re-
, gard to the establishment of such a
! guild.

Unusual Vehicle Was Popular Here a
Few Tears Ago.
Weather-beaten and delapidated, al
most hidden by high weeds, an old
time hansom with the driver's seat on
top at the back sits "unwept, unhon
ored. and unsung" on a vacant lot on
Moss street. The hansom belongs to
Rothwell and Mordica's livery stable
and was at one time the most popular
vehicle in Columbia.
But that was several years ago. It
was purchased by Mr. Mordica from!
a second-hand store in 1902 for about
five hundred dollars. He brought it
to Columbia and because of the pri
vacy it offorded and its warmth in
winter it soon became a favorite. Be

dances it was used for Pleasure
But it boean to net a bad renuta-
tion. It was used tod late at night.
There were "joy rides" or cab rides I
not automobile are ever used for
joy rides. Its use was discontinued
and although it is yet strong it has
no place but the scran heap in the
society of Columbia vehicles. The
rubber has been taken from the tires
the paint is scaling off and the wheels '
sink deeper into the mud each time
it rains.
There are many interesting legends
connected with the hansom. One is
that it belonged to John L. Sullivan,
who sold it just thirteen days before
he lost the championhsip as a prize
fighter to James J. Corbett. But the
legend is based only on the word of;
the second-hand dealer who sold the
vehicle to Mr. Mordica.

defective flue was the cause of the
blaze, which originated in the kitchen
when a fire was started in the cook

firemen in extinguishing the fire

Fourteen to 0 Defeat For the
Team From School Of

Tigers Showed Plenty of Fight
And Their Opponents

'they couldn't cross the Tiger goal,
, Their gameness kept the varsity from
having an easy time.
And along with occasional flashes
of Rood football there was more con-
ersational football than has been
seen on Rollins Field for some time.
Everybody was "talking It up." and
that very same talk may have been
what put the apparent ginger in the
teams. At times the conversation be
came personal, but glory to both

Officials said after the game that it

there was no roughness.
I Whether the Tigers met Prof. C. L.
Brewer's expectation or not in the
game they played, they demonstrated
one thing. They were in excellent
phyhical condition. They left the
game unscratched, but Rolla players
fared much worse. Xot a few of
them walked with difficulty.
Tigers Full of Ginger.
Professor Brewer's made-over Tig

really. The game was a poor one
from the standpoint or good football,
fumbles being frequent, but the thing
that impressed the Missouri rooters
was the "ginger" displayed by the
The other games this season were
marked by listless work, but yester
day afternoon the Tigers fought un

Rolla was forced to use many sub
stitutes on account of the injuries to
its men. .Missouri was penalized six
times for holding.
Knobel. who has been criticized for
poor defensive work, was the star of
the game, both on the offensive and
defensive. He won the applause of
the rooters by his aggressive tactics.
He was the chief ground gainer for
Missouri and made one of the two

Wiggans, next to Knobel, was the
most effective, cerrying the ball. He
wriggled and squirmed his way
through the line, seemingly without
any effort. He made one of Missouri's
touchdowns in the second quarter.
Shepard did the kicking for Mis
souri. He easily had the better of
the punting duel with Rolla. He
kicked two goals from touchdown and
failed in two drop kicks from about
the thirty yard line.
Missouri did all of its scoring In the
first half. The first touchdown was
for a touchdown. Wiggans and
Knobel carried the ball down the field
for the second touchdown in the sec

and played until he was injured in

Missouri's goal never was ln dan

Tigers' goal was about thlrty-fivp
yards, when Monntjoy or the Miners
broke away in the second hair ror a
thirty-yard run and was stopped by
Turley and Knobel. Practically the
entire game was played in Rolla's
territory. Missouri gained about 350
yards to Rolla's sixty.
Rolla braced in the second hair and
held the Tigers scoreless. This prob
