Frank Spellbrink, for several years secretary of the Missouri Public Util ities Company of this city, was shot and seriously wounded in St. Louis by W. A. Schmeckebier, a brother-in-law, Monday afternoon. He was at first reported to have been fatally wounded but the physicians at the city hospital, where Spellbrink is confined, say he will recover. Francis Greable, a friend of Spell brink, was also shot and seriously wounded by Schmeckebier. They were fired upon as they attempted to enter the Schmeckebier Candy Company, of which Spellbrink's brother-in-law is the proprietor. Schmeckebier told the St. Louis po lice that he shot his brother-in-law and his companion after receiving a threatening communication from Spell brink over the telephone. Spellbrink's wife, Louise, is in deli cate health and has not been told of the shooting. She is Schmeckebier's sister. Schmeckebier opened fire with an automatic pistol when Spellbrink and Greable entered his office. He told the police he had received a telephone message from Spellbring that "I am coming down there to get you." After the telephone message was re ceived, a policeman was sent to guard Schmeckebier. The policeman had gone to a patrol box a block away to make his hourly report when the shooting occurred. When he heard the shots he ran back to the office and Schmeckebier surrendered to him. Greable told the police he met Spell brink downtown and was invited to take a walk with him. He said he was not told an attack was to be made on Schmeckebier. All of the six bullets in Schmecke bier's pistol took effect. Spellbrink was shot in the left side, abdomen, right arm and right leg. Greable was wounded in the righ side and right leg. Schmeckebier's mother, Mrs. Louise Schmeckebier, a widow, with whom he lives, said Spellbrink and her son had not been on good terms for some time. Spellbrink, she said, wanted Schmecke bier to give him and his wife employ ment with his candy company. Schmekebier said his business would not warrant this, she said, and this caused estrangement. Mrs. Schmeck ebier said she recentlv heard that Spellbrink had made threats to "get even with tier son. At the hospital Spellbrink denied that he had told Schmeckebier over the telephone that he was going to "get" him. He said he called up Schmeck ebier to talk over a business matter anil that Schmeckebier lecame angry. Spellbirnk said he then told his broth er-in-law he would "come down and see him." Spellbrink lived in Cape Girardeau for about five years and was quite popular. He was succeeded by John P. Meyers as secretary of the Utilities Company. lowing described real estate lying and being in the County of Cape Girardeau and State of Missouri, to-wit: One piece of land in township Nos thirty-one and thirty-two (31 and "2), North of Range fourteen (14) East, containing eighty-six and 55-100 acres, being all that part of Joseph Chevalier survey No. r,22), division No. 200; of the four hundred arpens which had not been disposed of the U.

A parade, such as never has wended the streets of Cape Girardeau before, will be a night feature of the enter tainment during fair week. It will be a burlesque on a genuine circus parade and if the success sim ilar pageants have met with in other cities is any criterion, it will be better than a genuine circus parade. The parade feature was definitely decided upon Sunday morning at a joint meeting of the Entertainment committee of the Commercial Club and a committee of the Board of Directors of the Fair and Park Association, which met at the Commercial Club. Those who were present were: Charles Blattner, president of the fair association; A. M. Tinsley, J. T. Nunn Sr., C. W. Stehr, J. T. Nunn Jr., secre tary of the fair; W. H. Bohnsack Jr., David Glenn, President J. H. McPher son, of the Commircial Club; Clyde Vandivort, of Jackson, and John Mil ler. The Commercial Club at its meet ing had authorized the Entertainment Committee to prepare some night fea tures for entertaining the crowds in town. The proposition of obtaining carnival companies and placing them on Spanish street, Broadway and Good Hope street first came up. The fair directors pointed out that such features would draw crowds away from the fair at night when it is plan ned to have the midway going full blast and a free show put on. The business men thereupon began planning for a different entertainment stunt, and the parade was selected as being the best for working up in a short time. Costumes will be brought from St. Louis and it is probable that an expert will be imported from St. Louis to train the Cape Girardeauans in pre senting the parade. The costumes of papier macho will represent elephants, tigers, horses, gi raffes, serpents and animals of vari ous descriptions found in a real circus parade. These will be accompanied by many clowns and floats interspersed that will carry out the idea of the bur lesque. There will be a lady caged in with a den of man-eating lions. In all probability, the lions will be poodle dogs rigged up to represent the king of beasts. The snake charmer will be on deck and A. H. Tinsley, who is at the head of the Commercial Club Committee which is staging the parade, is plan ning to have a "phony" calliope to wind up the affair. Tinsley last night declared that there will have to be several capable young men who are willing to make heroes of themselves offer their serv ices to become beasts for the night of the parade. A feature of the parade will be a float with a large, smoot platform. A troupe of acrobats will be engaged to put on a series of stunts on this plat form at various stops the parade will make enroute. A parade similar to the one planned for the Capo was given on July " in Anna, 111., where it met with great success. The Cape plans to have a pageant about four or five times the size of the Anna affair. The parade will "make-up" in a rock quarry out on Broadway west of J Pacific street. It will march east on iJroa.tway t o.Main, stopping jor a nod at l.roadway and rountain lor tno ; acrobatic stunt, and also at Main and Uroadway. It will go south on Main to I nde- j pendence, west on Independence to Spanish, South on Spanish to Good j Hope, west on Good Hope to Frederick where another acrobatic show will be staged, then west on Good Hope to Pacific, north on Pacific to Broadway where the last acrobatic show will be staged and from that point the parade will continue on out to the Fair grounds. It is planned to give the parade on Wednesday evening, September 2!, and Friday evening, Oct. 1. A canvass of business men in all parts of the town will bo made to raise funds for the parade, and it is under stood that many of the business men have indicated their intention of giv ing liberally toward the stunt. A. R. Ponder of San Antonio, Tex., nnd J. A. Harrell, of Pasadena, Cal., ' yesterday were in the Cape attending j to business interests here before de parting for St. Louis. Both men for merly were Capo Girardeauans. Pon der was in charge of the construction of the Cape street railway system and was manager of the telephone system ; and superintended the installation of j the service as well. Harrell, about is vr.ir! niro. was in business in Jackson i and had numerous business interests in the Capo. He went from Cape County to California. BAD STREET MAY CLOSE FACTORY, SAYS D. B. SMITH SuperintendentDecIaresShoe Plant Isn't Appreciated By Cape People. RUTS IN HIGHWAY RUIN PLANT'S RIGS Efforts Made to Get Oil for Street Meet With No Success. D. R. Smith, superintendent of the International Shoe Company's plant, yesterday said that if the city of Cape Girardeau did not repair North Main street, the factorv would be closed. "Capo Girardeau is always willing to do something for an institution which is worth nothing to the city, but it always opposes a request from the shoe factory. We pay salaries of $7,000 a week or approximately $::o0, 000 a year, but the city compels us to haul over a street that would not be tolerated in a country town. "The street is as bad as any road in the county. It has reached a stage where it is almost impossible to haul freight over it. It has been in this con dition for more than a year. The situ ation has become aggravated during the past month because of the dry weather. The city refuses to sprinkle the street, and the dust is now more than six inches deep in places. Six hundred employes of the shoe plant wade through this dust night and morning. We are compelled to employ men to wipe the dust from the leather in order for the men and women to work with it. "The Waters Pierce Oil Company offered to donate 40,01)0 gallons of oil to be uod on the street from Broad way to a point north of the shoe fac tory, provided the people would pay the freight of the oil from Pennsylva nia and the cost of spreading the oil The total sum would not exceed ?150 I sent two men out today with peti tions, asking for contributions. The shoe factory headed the list with ? The two men were able to get only ?17. "It seems to mo that the business people do not appreciate the shoe far tory. The members of the City Coun cil think of the factory only when they are running for office. During the campaigns they always call at the plant and ask permission to go through and meet the voters. "There is no other citv in Missouri where the International Shoe Com pany has a plant that refuses to co operate with the factory. We have tol erated conditions in the hope that eventually the city would do some thing for us, but 1 don't believe that time will con.e. "Bv steady hauling over Main street a new wagon would be almost wreck ed within a month. Two thirds of tin freight that comes to the Cape and goes is hauled over North Main street, but in spite of this fact, we are com oe ei to to crate the worst street in town. "Wo are entitled to a decent street and it should be kept in first class condition all the time.

There are Seve ral negro huts in the alley a short distance from where she was standing. Casey Ransom arrived at the scene of the shooting a few moments after ward and too late to pusue the man. Mrs. Hansom in describing the man's actions said she was not sure that she had hit him, the only indication being his exclamations. A close inspection of the alley failed to show a trace of blood, and last night physicians and surgeons failed to report that they had been called to attend anyone suffering with a gun- shot wound. J. W. Wenger came up to the Cape from Cairo yesterday on business. SCHOOL ATTENDENCE GREATER THAN 1914 Normal and Public Institution Show (Jain Over Last Year's Opening. At the close of the ftrn day'- t-r rollmi-nt at the Normal School ..-'., day, .'i2 students had compict. ,j u.-tr class assignments, 2!) more than upon the first day a year ago. Similarly in the city schools, the enrollment for the first day this ear exceeded the figure for 1114 by 138. The enrollment at the Norma! School will continue to be heavy for three days, when it is expected that the vast majority of the students will be in the school. The enrollment at the Normal this winter is expected to be more than 700. Classes at the Normal will meet to day for assignments and preliminary organization. Tomorrow the actual work of the year will commence. In the public schools the total enroll ment at all buildings is l.".Cl as against 140:! last year. The enrollment at the High School is 221, ol greater than a year ago. There has been a large increase in the enrollment in the Lincoln (colored) school. The enrollment by buildings this year as compared with that of Ia.-t year is as follows: Building Washington Jefferson i r 1 4 irir. 271 22.'. nit r.m r:. i 27:: 120 ;:::2 170 221 122! 1 ::.v 174 21 k; iio.. l.vn last night Lorimier (grades) I.orimier (High School). Grand totals Superintendent 'rock declared that the increase in the first day's enrollment was normal and sim ply bears out the natural growth of the schools recorded in former years. He declared that normally there ought to be several more pupils en rolled in the schools in the course of the week and at the close of a month, the enrollment will reach about its maximum. He expects at least "0 to 7.") more pupils to bo enrolled in the schools this week. Little confusion attended the open ing of the public schools yesterday. For the most part the grade pupils when assigned to their rooms com menced the daily "grind" that will be theirs from nov until they get a re spite on Thanksgiving holiday. At the Normal School the process of enrollment is considerably slower, because each student must hold an in dividual conference with a member of the faculty assigned to become his ad visor throughout that student's course in the school. The question of subjects to be studied and arrangement of courses is thoroughly gone into at this interview. LUTHERAN WOMEN SHY AT ALT HOME Society of (irandmas Hesitates to Depart from Custom in Use Half Century. The members of the Old Ladies' Aid Society of the Trinity German Lu theran Church still are divided over the question as to whether they shall join with the members of the younger peoples organizations in the occupa tion of the old Alt mansion, which re cently has been acquired by the church and is being converted into a club house. At their meeting yesterday after noon at the home of Rev. and Mrs. A. Wilder, the women of the aid society passed up a decision in the matter till their next meeting. Since the Alt home has been ob tained by the church, the younger women have been trying to get the members of the Old Ladies' Aid So- iety to move into the fine old man sion. The Old Ladies' Aid Society is one of the oldest institutions of thet hurch. It soon will celebrate its fif tieth anniversary and the members of the congregation have been anxious to get the society to enter the new club muse. They want to devote a special room for the society's use and they will re gard it as a distinct mark of approval when the older women take part of the occupancy of the home. On the other hand, the members of the aid society have, since the organ ization was formed, been accustomed to holding their meetings fortnightly at the home of the various members. It is a sort of sewing society as well as church gossip exchange. Each of the members has taken a vast deal of pride in the entertainment of the society at their individual homes and the fact that the members J R.

Let us all try to find something to ex hibit and thus help to make it a suc cess. Some complaints have come from breeders of fine stock that the pre miums are not large enough to justify the preparation of their stock for show and it is certainly a fact that Sikestoii, for example, offers much more generous rewards at her fair. 1 notice that in the fruit department there is a great deal more money of fered for the various classes as well as a greater variety of classes in which to enter but we should not let this alone prevent us from attending and exhibiting whatever we have of superior excellence. We must remem ber that our rewards are not all in cash. Although the peach crop Jns largo, much of it was lost through ihe brown rot. Last summer was too dry for fungus diseases like the rot to develop but the rainy August of this year pro vided the bset conditions for the spread and rapid growth of it. Much depends on the character of the spring spraying. If it were thorough, the rot would be less prevalent for the rot spores must find their way into the fruit through some break in the skin. Such breaks are usually the work of insects whose number depend on the efficiency of the spray. Let us con sult w ith you about when to spray and what to spray with. The last of the month of September is generally late enough to pick the latest of the apples. The common rule is that they are ready to ix picked as soon as the seeds are brown and the apples well colored. The Winesaji is one of the last to require picking. Pick on a dry, sunny day and store in a dry, cool cellar. Grade the fruit care fully. Bruised, wormy or specked fruit will not keep long and such should be separated from the perfectly sound. Late in the fall they may be taken from the cellar and buried in the ground where they will retain their crispness and juiciness better than anywhere else. L. R. Johnson, Cape Girardeau Normal School. have for so many years gone from home for their meetings, accounts for a firm Itond of union among all the members. It has led to probably a closer union in the society. The mem bers have become far more intimately acquainted. At each meeting of the society a collection of ten cents each has been taken up to defray expenses of enter taining the society with a light lunch eon. This feature has made the work of the organization thoroughly i' no cratic in spirit. With the ecquisition of the Alt homo the younger women's aid society has taken up its quarter.- there and has made plans for furnishing a room as their quarters. They have invited some of the members of the Old Ladies Aid Society in to their meetings to show them what there is at the Alt Mansion and present their arguments force fully as to why the oldersociety should change its method of meeting. At the older women's meeting yes terday those who attended the young women's meeting reported on what they had observed. The result of the discussion was that the members were divided. It is anticipated that further efforts will be made in the next week to win over those who still want to hold the home meetings by having them attend the younger women's meeting next Wednesday at the Alt roar?ion. Should the older women decide to take a part of the house, they expect to go to some expense in furnishing it with their society equipment. L.
