There are many instances where their coolness and good judgment in emergencies have saved human life and valuable property. When the dam at Great Horse creek burst a telephone operator at Hudson, Colorado, saved the passengers on a crowded train by sending word along the line to farmers to flag the train before it reached Elder creek bridge, a span of which had been washed away. At your local switchboard there are always trained operators on duty, ready to render special service in emergencies. Every Bell Telephone is a Long Distance Station Cape Girardeau Bell Telephone Co.

Overstolz's Zoo Up By a Big Fox Judge Hay's Contribution to Wild Animal Home Con sumes Prairie Dog and Squirrel, Ten Years Old. A large red fox, presented to -the Ovcrstolz zoo on South Middle street, last week by Judge Edward I). Hays, is rapidly consuming the zoo. Old Br'er fox developed cannibalistic tendencies a few nights ago, seized a Kansas prairie dog and consumed it before help could reach the little rodent. C. H. Ovcrstolz, owner of the ani mals, was awakened during the night by the prairie dog's calls for help. -.Air. Ovcrstolz raised a window and re quested, the fox to behave. The noise was. heard no more that night, and it was supposed that reynard had quit molesting its neighbors. The following morning, when the keeper went to the cages to feel the animals, he noticed a bail of hair in the center of the cage, and upon in vestigation, Iwurncd that it was the re mains of the prairie dog. , Friday right there was a commotion in the zoo that aroused the neighbor hood. A series of piteous wails pene trated the midnight air, and people rushed to the windows. After n short silence there was another scivam, ar.e then the noise subsided. When the keeper went to the cage yostorday morning to learn the cause of the trouble of the. night before, a lone squirrel's tail lay on the bottom of the cage. A largo fox squirrel, ten years of age, had been consumed. A'!: f i'.iv. ar.la.als occupying the cage with the fox were removed yes terday, except Stanley, the 'possum. Stanley is so vicious that he cannot be handled, and if a tragedy befalls him. the 'possum will have only him self to blame. Mr. Ovcrstolz yesterday began a quiet investigation to ascertain the previous reputation of the fox. He be lieves Judge Hays has presented Ivm with a wolf disguised as a fox. NEGRO SAYS HE LAID PLANS TO KILL DAUES Went to Former Cape Man's Of fice With Revolver-Couldn't Find Him. St. Louis, Sept. 21. T.ouis Crave? of Jefferson City, a well-educated negro, held by the police on a forgery charge, told reporters today that he had plan ned to kill City Counselor Danes and to rob W. I). Yandiver, assistant Uni'ed States Treasurer in charge of the St. Louis Subtreasury. He said he went to Daues' office in. the City Hall last Friday, carrying a loaded revol ver, and sat there for a half hour waiting for Daues to return fiom a conference with Mayor Kiel. He then decided to postpone the hilling and went away without seeing Danes. He went the next day to Vandivev's office, he said, again carrying his re volver, and intending to force Van diver to sign a check for a large amount. Yandiver, whom he used to know in Southeast Missouri, talked to him in a friendly manner and gave him a quarter and he decided to defer his demand. However, he admits that he himself siirnod Vandivw's name to a check for which he attempted to pass, this attempt causing his arrest. Ho signed Otto Stifel's name to an other check, which was in his pocket when he was arrested. Craves was sent to the penitentiary 10 years ago for forgery, after he had jumped from the third tier of cells in the old City Hall, fracturng his skull. Gov. Hadloy later paroled him. and he married a Jefferson City negress who had considerable property. He has roomed for the last t" Q weeks at "i"S Lawton avenue. His grudge against Daues, he said, dates from the time when Daues, as a lawyer in Cape Cir- rdoau. procured a divorce for Craves first wife. He pleads temporary insan ity, the result of the old injury to his iead. as an explanation of his recent acts.

Snipe passed over Cane Girardeau in great flocks last night on their way from the nesting grounds in the Sas katchewan country to the Southern States where they will spend the win ter. According to old residents of the Cape, the snipe do not usually go south so early, leaving after the forest trees in this section have shed their leaves and light freezes give the north the first touch of winter. Their departure is taken to indicate an early autumn. The snipe v.ero dazed by the electric street lights as they passed over. Sev eral birds strayed from their courses and lost their way. They fluttered about on Main street for several min utes before regaining their bearings. Yesterday was the first day of In dian Summer, according to the al manac. This is regarded as the poetic season of the year. It is the time when the forest trees take on the col ors of the rainbow. The air, made crisp by the first frosts, is supposed to possess an ozone as bracing as wine. Indian Summer in this locality oc casionally lasts until the early part of November, but it frequently turns into real fall or early v.ir.ier weather, the latter part of October. As two light frosts have been reported in this coun ty during the past week, it is expect ed that the loaves on the forest trees will begin to take on their brilliant colors within a short time. Saturday will be known as '"Hcrbst An fang."' which means the becrinning of "nutiimn. .Tndfo Wilier possesses a German calendar of events and holi days in Europe. BOYS PLAY SNAKE HOAX ON TALLEY Patrolman Battles Reptile on Sidewalk and Find Piece of Rag. T'ltrolmrn Oorcre Trdley of the Broadway beat last night exercised his courage and skill as a snake killer. He put a dor.t in his club by slaughtering a bit of Mack rag that had been drawn ecross the sidewalk bv bovs on bis beat who played a hoax on passershy Talley was induced to attack the ered it and fled precipitately for the "snake" bv two men who first encount- ly tramped upon it and after many protection of a policeman. The apparition started to wriggle itself neros sthe walk on Sprigg street Broadway. The object was making in front of the Hunzc residence near good headway v. hon the two men near- excl imatioiis of horror, ran up the middle of the street. They too', i ,:i'ey back and the offi cer approached, using all the precau tions of an experienced woodsman. He had his club firmly grasped in his hand ready for instant action. The snake played dead ns he approached, thus allowing the patrolman to get close up on him for an examination before the killing commenced. Ta'Iey's ryes are those of an expert squirrel shot and as he got close upon the apparition upon the ridewalk, he saw the black thread that furnished the life of the snake. His two companions heaved sighs of relief when the patrolman announced to them that instead of having en dangered their lives, they simply had been hoaxed and simultaneously, the small boys who had been in hiding and who hail mainpulatod the "snake" broke up the party with their shouts of derision.

After Judge John A. Snider yester day dissolved a temporary writ of in junction issued to restrain Herman Loeffel and the city from doing paving work on North Fountain street, Ed ward L. Drum, attorney for "Josh" Anderson, filed a motion for a new trial, and announced that unless some agreement is reached, the case will be appealed. As soon as the injunction had been dissolved by the court, Judge Edward I). Hays filed a motion asking for $500 damages for Mr. Loeffel, the bond of Mr. Anderson to be held on the mo tion. The case centered upon a difference in two surveys made on North Foun tain street in connection with the street paving being done. Anderson claimed that the city's survey made an aggression of from two to eight feet upon his land on the eastern side of Fountain street for a distance of two blocks north of the cemetery. Before the Loeff el-Anderson case was completed, Judge Frank Kelly oc cupied the bench and a jury returned a verdict giving C. J. and J. A. Engle man a judgment for $1197.56 from Henry M. Amclunke in a suit involv ing the sale of a farm in Mississippi. The three men reside in Cape County and Amelunke sold the Englemanns the farm for $7000. Through an unaccountable reason the Englemanns were called upon to pay twice for a part of the farm and they sued to recover. The suit was filed last February. A third case vas taken up before Judge Snider yesterday afternoon when the jury was drawn and testi mony started in a suit involving a question of title to a farm in the west end of the county. The fight is between J. M. Iessley and S. Edson. The case was started before the following jury: Oswald Hartling, John Schneider, Henry Gockel, G. .R Davis, Julius Jahn, William F. Koer her, Joseph Siemers, A. J. Masters Henry Kelpe, Leo Saupe, A. G. Land graf and Charles Wise. Mr. Lessley was one of thi? most im portant witnesses who were examined yesterday afternoon. MRS. BEN EGGIMANN DIES IN ST. LOUIS Lived in Cape Sister of VV. Bergmann Funeral Yesterday. Fi 'iends of Mrs. Matlida Eggiman, a member of a prominent Cape County family and a sister of W. C. Berg mann, yesterday learned of her death late last Friday night at her home in St. Louis. Mr." Bergmann, Alvin Bergmann, a nephew, and Mrs. Robert Vogelsang, a niece, went to fct. Louis where they attended the funeral which was held yesterday afternoon. Mrs. Eggimann was 78 years old. She died while in bed Friday night and it was not until members of her fam ily wer.t to her room the following Saturday morning that tkey discover ed her death. She had been suffering for the last seven or eight years with a cancer of the breast and that is be lieved to have been the cause of her death. Mrs. , Eggimann, until about two years ago, lived in the Cape, when she went to St. Louis to make her home with a daughter, Mrs. Annie Mahneke, where she died. She was married twice, her first husband being Charles Burches. Her son, Charles Burches, killed himself about two years ago. Her second hus band, the late Ben Eggimann, was prominent here and he has been dead for several years. After the funeral services had been held yesterday the body was cremated at the Missouri Crematory in St. Louis- ALTERED INTAKE SALE OF BREEDING TO SOLVE CAPEST0CKISP0STP0NED i WATER PROBLEM Engineers Will Confer Today on Modified Scheme of Hugo Wurdack's. RIVER IS NEVER LOW ENOUGH FOR WORK Well on Bank Circumvents Diffi culty in Middle of Stream. An engineering conference which will seek to agree upon altered plans for a new water intake for the Cape water supply will be he'd at the of fice of the PubliV Utilities Company to day, when the water and light com pany, the Missouri Public Sendee Commission anJ the city will be repre sented. An alteration in the plans for the water intake has been prompted, the utilities company engineers declare, by the fact that it has boon imnosM'bl? to install the crib that was planned and made a part of the franchise about two years ago. The scheme that has been evolved by the engineers for the utilities company gets at the same result, it is said, by means of a different manner of water intake. At the conference, today. Paid Bay liss, assistant engineer for the Public Service Commission, will represent that body, Mr. Billings, chief engineer for the Missouri Light & Development Co., will represent the local water and light company, and it is probable that Major Brooks will represent the Cape. Under the scheme for a new water intake crib, a pipeline was to lead diagonally across the river and t: the northeast of the present pumping sta tion to a regular crib sunk to the bed of the river and in the center of the stream. At the lowest water level so far re corded, contractors who have viewed the situation for the utilities company, have pronounced th? job imposs;bIe of . .. - ..... i attainment, Manager A. -M. Tinslev said last night. It would be necessary to sink the crib abuot "0 feet in the middle of the river. Hugo Wurdock, president of the Light & Development Co.. and his en gineers now have proposed to the Pub lic Service Commission a plan for ex tending a pipeline along the bank of the river north from the powerhouse ior anout -sou teet. At that po:nt a well 15 feet in diameter and about -Ifi feet in depth would be sunk. Then a pipeline water intako would be run to the center of the stream from that point, which would conduct water irom tne miciuic or the river and from a portion not touched by Sloan's Creek, to the first well, whence it would be pumped to the plant build ing south of Sloan's There it would be prepared for dis tribution over the citv in the same manner as is now done. The altered plans have been submit ted to the commission and today an examination of the scene probably will be made by Engineer Bavliss who may make recommendations that will lead to the permanent settlement of the Cape's water supply problem. Construction of the crib in the mid dle of the river is a highly expensive piece of work as compared with thriftily Wilkinson to Run for Trea- plans now suggested, and in addition. to that fact, the Cape has been forced to wait for two vears for a low river stage so that work in the middle of the river could be carried on. The new scheme could be carried out at once. BLOMEYER WOMAN DIES SUDDENLY Mrs. Maude V. Walters Had Blood Poisoning For Several Days. Mrs. mauds v. waiters, wife of a farmer, Jake Walter, well-known on the East Side, died at her home near Blomeycr late yesterday afternoon aft er an illness of several days. The Walters family formerly lived near McClurc and recenty moved to a farm one mile west of Blomeyer. Mrs. Walters was "2 years old. Blood poi soning was the cause of her death. The funeral will be held Thursday when burial will be in the Lenze Cem etery near Thebes. AI Brinkopf and Henry Kimmich last night drove to Mi Walters familv ne.ir Blomever to embalm the body and prepare it to be hiDDed to Thebes today. Mrs. Walters is survived by her bus- band and three small children. She re- cently gave birth to a baby. Pure Beef Men Decide Not Stage Public Action Next October. C. M. McWilliams, County Agent. I.a:t Saturday the Cape County Breeders of Pure Bred Berf Cattle met at Jackson to decMe on several ques tions that v ere before the association. At their Jtir.e meeting it was decided to hoh! a pubii- s-.'e of breeding stock in October. The members all io 'ared thornsoho:; in favor of f-,: T-T.m hut state. 1 that their i . . animal.: had foond such a ready dr-n-ard : t private . ale that there was ve-.-y fr..v animals really for sale at present. A vote was 'alien and it was de idrd to ih-iVr the sale to sine future time, t he d:;1e t,, ,,.. cided later. Secretary Wash Miller of Oak I: idee has recently visited well-known h, -rds in Iowa and Illinois and gave an inter esting account of his trip. Mr. Mi!!, r says that cattle of good breeding and individuality are in great demand and selling readily for good prices. The b'-reders present stated that :i gre.t bull: of business was !.cal and it is fortunate that this is true. The effect of goo.! iloed. p:irtu-.:!a'jv. the sire has been fully demonstrated ro often that the results are veil known. It surely is a favorable condition of af fairs when practically all the breeders of pure-bred beef cattle in the county report that they are unable to supply the local demand that comes to them. It means that our local cattle a,e be ing rapidly impr ved and that t he farmers and stockmen are finding that it pays to u.--e good blood. Two new members w ere ad.l-'d to tiie roll, and after passing f ivovabiy on a motion to assist in leaking the live stock f-how at Jackson next month, a success, the meeting adjourned to met again in January. Seed Corn Selection Bight now and during the first half of October is an ideal time to select next yea 's com. Selection from the standing .-.t:dk means that you have an opportunity to inspect the parent of the corn. A stocky stalk with short spaces botv ecn the joints and with broad loaves is a better feeder and a better producer than the opposite type. Tlv position of the ear and whether r not it ben. is downward in order to shed water may also be noted. In short, an accurate idea of producing power of corn mav be had if the parent stalk i : . t.idied and ,i few hours devoted t. seed selec tion will unquestionably yield larger returns if the work is inteilige.itly done.
