A daughter was born to Mr. and Mrs. R. C. Harbison last Sunday morn ing. Mr. and Mrs. Harbison have been visiting for several weeks with-the lat- ill A draft for $1400 is all that has been received by Mrs. M. M. Hazen, of William and Frederick streets, as indemnity and damages for the death of her husband who was burned to death in a sawmill fire at Standard, La., last October. The corporation that made the set tlement, the Louisiana Central Lumber Co., is a .$15,000,000 organization, own ing properties virtually throughout the Southwest. The settlement of $1400 was made outside of court through the efforts of Mrs. Hazen's son-in-law, H. H. Haas, of the St. Charles Drug Store, and it was only after a lengthy correspond ence and a series of personal conver sations that Haas was able to bring the sum up to that amount. At the outset, the indemnity bonding company, which was handling the case for the lumber concern, offered but $500. Through Haas' work, they final ly raised the figure to $1000 and then $1400. The settlement was made some weeks ago and Mrs. Hazen received the draft through Haas a few days ago. Mr. Hazen, who was G8 years old, was employed on the third floor of the saw mill, where he kept the saws used, sharpened. He and his sole assistant, a man named Dodson, were the only men killed in the fire. Their bodies were burned completely. The fire started on the first floor and mounted upward through the building rapidly. The smoke was so dense it asphyxiated some of the work men on the first floor before they could escape, and they had to be drag ged from the burning building by their companions. About 200 men were at work in the place. It is believed the fire started from spontaneous com bustion. Hazen and his assistant Dodson, were in a part of the mill removed from the escapes and they had no time to make a getaway, Haas de clared. Haas, who practiced as an attorney several years ago, went to the mill town after the fire to investigate the fire with a view of getting evidence upon which to base a damage suit against the mill company. He found on his arrival there, he de clared, that virtually all the employes were reticent about talking of the mill and the conditions that existed inside. He succeeded, however, in getting evidence, he said, upon which he be lieved he could successfully base a damage suit. A proffer to compromise then was made and the negotiations continued. Haas said he believed the possibility of recovering damages through a suit were good, but the judgment would have been curtailed, he said, on ac count of his father-in-law's age. Dodson's relatives had not started action yet. Dodson was 24 years old and was married and leaves young children. Mr. Hazen three years ago resided in the Cape. He was an experienced mechanic and had been connected with the mill in Standard but a year when the fire occurred.

Hayden, who came to the Cape yesterday on business, last night de clared that during the high water re cently, Puxico was cut off from the surrounding country and went for five days without railroad service. Not a wheel moved into Puxico during the entire period. He declared that much of the corn has been spoiled by the wa ter, but many of the farmers are cut ting the corn by hand and placing it in silos to save it for winter feed. He s accompanied by E. Richmond. William Dohogue of Kelso last night was a business visitor in the Cape. Manager Joe Barenkamp of the Capahas last night announced that he expects to learn this afternoon wheth er the plans for a steamboat excursion to Cairo this Sunday may be carried out. Last week Barenkamp began mak ing arrangements to obtain a large excursion steamer to carry a crowd of 800 to 1000 baseball fans from the Cape to Cairo, where a game has been scheduled. Negotiations were entered into with the officials of the Spread Eagle, an excursion steamer running out of St. Louis, in an endeavor to se cure that boat's services. Barnekamp expects to receive a let ter this afternoon from St. Louis with the decision of the steamboat officials as to whether or not the Spread Eagle may be brought to the Cape for the trip. The boat officers had expected to do a big business with an excursion on Labor Day, Monday, September 6, and if they brought their craft to the Cape on Sunday, it would be impossible for them to get back to St. Louis in time for the Labor Day picnic crowds. If the Cape crowd that wishes to ac company the baseball team to Cairo is large and promising enough, the steamer may come anyway, and put on a couple short excursions here at the Cape the following day. Barenkamp last inght said if the steamer cannot be secured for the ex cursion to Cairo, the baseball men in Cairo will change the game to the Cape and will charter one of the small Ohio river boats with which they will bring an excursion to the Cape. Should the baseball game between the Capahas and Cairo be brought to the Cape, a series of motorcycle races and other field events will be staged in the Fairgrounds, making it a com bination spectacle. Barenkamp says many persons have indicated to him their desire to go on the excursion to Cairo Sunday if he succeeds in getting the Spread Eagle. The Spread Eagle is a large boat that will accommodate 1500 passen gers and provide plenty of room for them. The fare will be $1 for the round trip and the boat will depart from the Cape early in the morning about 8:"0 a.m. and after the game has been played, the crowd will start back immediately. Morrison Sees Frigid Winter in Goose Bone (Continued from page 1.) under their throats. Well, in the au tumn of ')' these spots were coal black and I notice they are jet black now. This leads me to believe that the win ter is going to be long and severe. "I remember the mustache on our speckled torn cat grew heavy in the fall of 186-'?, and I have a torn cat with a mustache almost as thick as mine now. This is also a bad sign. Every stray dog, I notice, has a heavy coat of fur, which is another proof that the winter is going to be cold. "I ate roasted goose last Sunday, and .iusC as I expected, I found the wish bone heavy. This is sure proof that we will have snow early and it wil remain with us late. "I have been watching the sky these mornings to see if the geese and ducks have begun to go south. I expect them to start down from the north soon. When I see them you can bet your right eye that Mat Morrison slips on his red flannels. And I'll keep 'em on until these geese start back north next spring." GIANT APPLE REACHES CITY Henry W. Weis Presents Louis Brin kopf With Two-pound Beauty. Henry Y. Weis, the well-known farmer, is about to put Cape Girar deau County on the map as the land of the big red apple. He is the 1915 champion giant apple grower. The fruit is of the summer variety, yet un named by Mr. Weis. The apple was presented to Louis Brinkopf yesterday afternoon by Mr. Weis and weighs more than two pounds, is fourteen and one half inch es in circumference and six inches in diameter. It is said to be the largest apple ever exhibited in this city. Mr. Weis presented Mr. Brinkopf with a bushel of the monsters taken from one small tree. Every apple was large, but the biggest of them all was without a mate. Because of its size, Mr. Brinkopf called it "Jumbo." He will keep the apple for a souvenir and next spring will plant the seed.
