HIMMELBLIMJEHt Vicc-Prcsidtnt FUR TRAPPERS TO MAKE BIG HAULS Possum Now Means Meal and Majbe 2 Bnsheli of Potatoes. The man who joes coon hunting and catchei a possum now, catches some thing else than a square meal of pos sum and dumplin's he has a fur and hide that will bring in approximately two bushels of potatoes at a high price. Fur trapping around the Cape is scheduled to have a boom that will rival the days when Don Louis Lori mier founded this place more than a hundred years ago as a fur-trading post, where the indians brought their pelts to dispose of them. The prices of furs, all of wkich maj be obtained in the vicinity of the Cape and especially in the swamps below here, have advanced in a manner that almost has kept pace with flour and , SUgar, or potatoes and beans, or quin- high as $4 or $5 for prize furs or extra large size. A possum's hide brings from 25 cents up to as high as $3 to $4 for first-class pelts; foxes arc worth from $j to $8.50; mink, $2.50 to $6 or ?7; amj skunk. .$1 to 3.50 or $4. The black skunk pelt is most in de- mand and brings the best price, and next comes the narrow striped fur with the wide striped pelt third among the skunk hid6. Two of the Frank boys, who live west of the Cape, yesterday brought !'ree coon hides to market, one of the :emers boys and a companion a few rights ago went coon hunting and got ight coon pelts near Gordonville. A short time ago, a party composed f Pete Herst, JIcLain and Ed Flentge went hunting south of the Cape and treed several animals which they wcr unable to get because of the absence of an ax to fell the trees. Several men who live in the swamps below the Cape, make hunting and trapping for the fur market a side line of some consequence at this time of the year. F. F. BRAUN & BROS. MILK IN WINTER Why do your cows give less milk in winter than they do in summer? Just because nature does not supply them with grasses and green food. But we have come to the assistance of Dame Nature with B. A. Thomas' Stock Remedy which contains the very in gredients that the green feed supplies in season, only, of course, in a more highly concentrated form. We guar antee that this remedy will make your cows give more milk, and better milk, with the same feed. F. F. BRAUN & BROS. First!! t5. M. CAUTEll, Secretary S. B. HUNTER, icc-rrcsidcat SE HAVE BEATEN L ONLY 259 PRECINCTS IN MIS SOURI ARE YET TO BE HEARD FROM. REED IS 25,000 IN THE LEAD All of Democratic State Ticket but John P. Gordon la Elected All Constitutional Amendments Probably Defeated. St Louis, Nov. 9. The election of Frederick D. Gardner, Democrat, as governor of Missouri, seemed to be as sured Thursday morning on the re ceipt of returns from all except 259 voting precincts In the state. On the face of these returns Gardner led Hen ry Lamm, Republican, by 4,637 votes. A majority of the outstanding pre cincts are Democratic generally. The indication is that Gardner will win with a plurality of about 7,000. The returns Indicate that President Wilson has carried the state with a plurality in excess of 30.000. and that Senator Reed has carried it over Wal ter S. Dickey with a plurality In ex cess of 25.000. In 3,200 precincts the vote for gov ernor is: Gardner, 342,206; Lamm, 337.569. In 2,913 precincts the vote for pres ident is: vfeson, 353,936; Hughes, 328,099. In 2,910 precincts the vote for Unit ed States senator is: Reed, 348,267; Dickey, 324.375. Returns on minor state offices indi cate the election of all Democratic candidates except Auditor John P. Gordon, a candidate for re-election. Gordon seems to have been decisively defeated. He lost St. Louis by 33,241. and was scratched in many other parts of the state, though in many of what are known as the 'rock-ribbed' Democratic counties he ran up with the other candidates on the ticket, and in several of these counties ran ahead of other candidates for minor offices. All the constitutional amendments appear to have been defeated, though there is a possibility that the amend ment authorizing the legislature to pension the blind has carried. In 1,430 precincts the vote on prohibition was 37,902 for and 179,560 against. Tli Gardner land bank in the same pre cincts received 80,142, and against it 126.450 votes were cast. On the blind pension amendment the same precincts gave 106,356 for and 104.138 against. Vote on State Officers. Following is the rote on state of ficers from 1,30 precincts, including the cities of SL Louis and Kansas City: Secretary of State Sullivan (Deni.), 178.984; Askin (Uep.), 186.387. State Auditor Gordon (Dem.), 107, 639; Haekmann (Rep.), 196,418. Treasurer Middlekamp (Dem.), 177,882; Thompson (Rep.). 179,523. Attorney-General Mason (Rep.), M8M06; McAllister (Dem.), 177,292. Judge of Supreme Court, No. 1 Woodson (Dem.), 180,267; Johnson (Rep.). 179,117. The partial vote on judges of the court of appeals follows: St. lOuis Court of Appeals, 619 pre cincts Biggs (Dem.), 91,727; Becker (Rep ), 99.379. Springfield Court of Appeals. 113 precincts Bradley (Dem.), 13,853; Cox (Rep ). 11,222. Kansas City Court of Appeals, 128 precincts Bland (Dem.), 16,055; Lan don (Rep.), 11.15S. The Democrats will control both houses of the state legislature; the senate by a large majority and the house by a comfortable margin. The Democrats are assured of 73 members of the house, one more than a major ity; the Republicans have 40 and 29 are in doubt. WOMEN GIVE STATE T0WILS0N State of Washington Votes Demo cratic for the First Time In 16 Years Seattle. Nov. 9. Wood row Wilson can thank the women of Washington for the seven electoral votes which the state cast in favor of tb presi dent. For the first time in 1 years Washington has gone Democratic. And the women did it. Both Republican and Democratic campaign managers made a strong ap peal for the women voters. They ex pected this vote would turn the tide and it did. This is the first time the complexion of the vote here has been changed since 1896. when the state went Democratic. Since then Repub lican managers have always regarded Washington as a stanch Republican state. 6,626 MILITIAMEN'S VOTES IN FIVE DOUBTFUL STATES New York, Nov. .

Herrick and the Victories in Nebraska and Nevada Make This Certain. New York, Nov 9. late returns from Ohio, indicating the re-election of Senator Atlee Pomerene (Dem.) over Myron T. Herrick (Rep.) virtually ended the possibility of Republican ascendancy in the senate. With Democratic leaders insisting that Hitchcock, In Nebraska, and Pittman, in Nevada, have been re-elected, and with Kendrick probably elected in Wyoming, the political status of the new senate would thus be: Demo crats 52, Republicans 42, with the re sult in Arizona and New Mexico still in doubt. Should the Republicans carry both, the Democratic majority in the sen te would be tight. WILSON MAINTAINS HIS LEAD IN IDAHO Boise, Idaho, Nov. 9. President Wil ?on maintained a substantial lead over Charles E. Hughes in Idaho. Returns from 552 cf the 743 precincts gave Wilson 59,467 votes, as against 46,205 for Hughes. STRAW VOTE MISSES ON BUT TWO STATES Bona Fide Election Changes Two Returns Made to Drug Stores. While the official outcome of the Presidential election remained in doubt all clay yesterday and last night, po litical experts resorted to the report of the straw vote of the Rexall store posted on Broadway to predict the final outcome of the election. Of the States that have been report ed in the Presidential returns as go oinjr for either one side or the other, the straw vote missed fire on but two States, with two more hanging in the balance. All other States in the Union yesterday afternoon had been ac curately foreshadowed as to their po litical complexion. The ttraw vote, which encompassed H)Q0 stores, predicted South Dakota would be Democratic rather than Re publicna, and likewise that Washing ton would go Republican instead of Democratic. The straw vote marks Minnesota in the Democratic column, and all day yesterday one of the chief fights was nvulc around that State. In Colifornia, where the fight hinged la.-t night, Hughes was predicted to be a winner by a close margin. The vote was taken over several weeks prior to the election and the total electoral vote that was returned for Vil?on gave him a large majority in berrin re-elected President.

Darclay Kurrie, a resident of Cape Girardeau County, who was in Ken tucky cn the day of election, sent his vote to Rlucher Sperling, the County Clerk, by mail, but it will not be count ed with the absentee ballots. The law permits a registered voter, away from home on election day, to mail in his vote, provided he is within the State limits. If he happens to be in another State, the voter is deprived of his right to cast his ballot. This does not apply to soldiers, however. Mr. Sperling had received 26 absen tee ballots last night and he expects another installment today. He said last evening that these votes would not change he result of the election in this county. The only change that might be pos sible is in the contest for sheriff. JcfT Hutson, the Democratic nominee, gain ed one vote over Henry Drinkopf, his Republican opponent, in the official count which was completed yesterday. Judge Edward D. Hays, Republican nominee for Circuit Judge, gained a few votes in the rcctoiit over Judge Frank Kelly, but the result is not ma terial in view of the fact that Judge Kelly swept Scott and Mississippi counties by enormons majorities. The official count changed the totals of nearly every candidate, but the ad vantage, with the exception of sheriff, was in favor of the Republican nerni nee. ; ..
