I'ath'-r Sieoert's account of th- lvlatiocs with Mi-s Cook, say ing th;,t Father Siebert met Miss Cook when she was in a hospital about two years ago. Miss Cook 1 act asked fcr a priest and I'ather Siebert was summoned. That was the beginning of their ac quaintance, he said, and thereafter the priest gay financial aid to the girl because she was sick an;l in need of mate-rial ait!. The prie.t's regard for the girl always h-wl been that of a pastor for a number of his parish, j Knehans said he hael learned as a rc- suit of his conference, an I Father Sie- bert simply points to the letters that ho has written to Miss Cook as evi- ; d"nrc of that fact. He said that he had written several ; lott.rs to Miss Cook all ir that spirit,! Knehans continued, and the priest like-, wise admitted openly that he hael sent Miss Cook money. The money j was given in the spirit of giving aid j to a suffering woman and r.o ether in-; torpretation may be placeel upon it, Father Siebert contends. Once when Miss Cook was in Pop lar Bluff, she wrote to the priest ask ing for money, Knehans said the his tory related, saying in her letter that she had a position awaiting her in the Cape if she could obtain the funds to make the trip with to the Cape. The priest furnished her with the j ironey on that occasion, and several j times sinfe that time, money was ask ed in a similar manner. Commenting on the agreement inti mated in one of the letters Miss Cook wrote to Siebert asking hir.i for money, ! CAPE GIRL WILL SUE PRIEST FOR REFUSING TO WED Employs H. E. Alexander to File Suit Charges He Offered Her Money SAYS LETTERS WILL PROVE HER STORY Woman in St. Louis Will Tell Story of Hotel Scene, She Asserts St. Louis, Jan. Tho inside story of an alleged roivancc between the Rev. Father Joseph Siebert, of N17 Sidney street. Ft. Louis, a Catholic missionary priest, and Miss Marie Cook, a pretty It) year old girl of Cape Girardeau, Mo., became known here today, v. hen it was learned that Fath er Siebert had b"en in consultation with Charles Danes, City Counselor, who is a warm friend of the priest. Attorney O. E. Knehans of Cape Girardeau has also been employed by Father Siebert to look after that end of the case. II. E. Alexander of Cape Girardeau, has been retained by Miss Cook to bring a suit for breach of promise. It is not known whether the contemplat ed action will be liled in St. Louis or in Cape Girardeau, but owing to the fact that Father Siebert i.s a resident of this city, it is expeited that the case will be docketed in the St. Louis courts. The relations between Miss Cook and Father Siebert, according to her charges, have existed for about two ; years beginning shortly after she was dismissed from a hospital in Cape Girardeau. Sh met the priest while a patient at the hospital, and in a short time after she had regained her sli onuth, she was invited to fonn1 to St. Louis, the oxpe-nses of her trip be ing bcrnn by the clergyman, she says. As a missionary priest, I'ather Sie bert is compelled to travel over near- ly every section of the state, and vlr'Ie i n these trip.: he rec-:-iveel !ct- tor.- from Miss Cook and wrote to her. ! He jidmits that he was in oorresponel nee v dli the Cape Girardeau girl, hut denies that there w ro anv eiues- J icnab!.' motives behind Ids action. He says the girl mad? recjuests for money from him, anel ii some in stances h snt money lo her, but charity prompted his actions, lie de clares. The priest rssr-rts that he was mov ed through pity to assist. Mi.-s Cook. She- had siiti'ered much sickness dur- ti.eii accjaaintanco, anel for Knehans snid that the priest absolute- deniotl in the conference that there 3xiited any such agreement. He said that both Father Siebert and his attorneys are at a loss to know just what Miss Cook expects from the Father. Father Siebert, Knehans said, i.s a missionary priest traveling over the state, conducting Catholic meetings much similar in character to protest ant revival mee tings. His salary is $i0 a month, paid by the church or ganization. Knehans said and beyond ! that, he has no further mean Harry E. AI"ar.ier, who is repre- sonting Marie Cc-ok, la.1 nt ::'ght refused to discuss the cas". T have nothing jto say. If the other sick proposes to j try the case through the newspapers, I havo no objections to make." was his comment when The Tribune communi- j ; caled v i Fath ith him ove r the telephone, j r Siebert is well-known and i held m much esteem by his acquaint- ances in this city. He is a native of Ste. Gc nevieve, but is well-known in Catholic circles here. Several years ago, he sper.t two weeks in this city, holding a mission. He is considered one of the ablest priests in the state. Father Siebert is about 40 years old, of rather large stature anel inclined to be fleshy. He is well-known as an orator. Miss Cook could not be found last night by The Tribune. Her name j dees not appear in the city or tele- phone directories. Mr. Alexander stated that she lived with relatives in the Cape, but declined to reveal the name of those with whom she lived. "Since the other side is so anxious to air this case, I will have something to say later," he said. ' months at a time, was unable to work. While ill and in need, she appealed to the priest for assistance, and several times he fonvareled money to her. Once, his attorneys sai 1, he assisted , l.er to wipe o:it a doc tor's bill. it is said mat a hi. Louis girl, a elore friend of .Miss Cook, was with the Cape Girardeau girl whe n .she met Father Siebeit at top Princess Hotel, an establishment on 17th and Market streets, this city, during the early part of December. Each of the girls occupied separate rooms, the young ladies say, and during the Jr stay there, I'ather Siebert called on Miss Cook twice, remaini r.g in her room for several hours each time. During Miss Cook's visit in St. Louis at that time, she demanded that Father Siebert marry her, but he re fused, :-ho says. According to her story, Father Siebert promised to renounce his religion rn:' marry her. His close friends say that he denies this allegation, saying that their re lations had only been as priest and parishioner, and that the subject of matrimoav was ne ver suggested or thought of by him. j It is understood that the priest,! will HID UlkOI m j HilM J 1 1 t" ( l I t - liminary plans to have the case brought to the attention of the Feder al authorities, charging that it is a scheme of the two girls to extract money from him through blackmail. Two letters, written t Father Sie bert recently by .Miss Cook, will be of fered in evidence to sub-iantiate his charge that the Capo Girardeau girl is attempting to force bi n to give her money, under the threat of being ex posed. The two letters from Miss Cook follow. Capo Girardeau, Mo., Dee. ft. 1!1.". Rev. J. Siebert, 817 Sidney street, St. Louis Mo. Dear Father: 1 returned home all o. k. Wish you was hear.

As ever your baby, MARIE COOK, Cape Girardeau, Mo. Miss Cook claims to have more than forty letters written to Lev by Father j Siebert, during their acquaintance-! ship. In these, it is asi -rted. that he j requested her to keep in strictest con fidence the relations oxi-ting between 'heir.. "Mum is tho wo id." he is al '"god to have written to Miss Cook in one let1 or in which he discussed a "mtrib ntion to help her meet a phvsi-' -ir-n's bill. In another communica- i tion, tho pi sd asked for details ! oncerning her illness, what her doctor ; said of the case, and inquired the j physician's name. The priest admits writing some of I'he letters, but said his nuostions were asked because he felt sorry for Miss Cook because of her misfortunes. He says his relations were honorable throughout, and that he never made any advances to the girl or spoke to her in terms of endearment.

It is cookeel somewhat liko tho corn pone, but instead of being hvivy through the waist, it has eko, indentations, which serve to hold the molasses. j "This is the way I eat them: Taking I my fork in my right hand, I spear the waffle and remove it from the serving dish to my plate. After smearing it with two coatings of fresh butter. I saturate fit with syrup. After allow ing it ample time to absorb tne mo uses, I attack it with fork and knf.
