He will depart for New York in about five weeks and on Dec. 2-'l, he will set sail for his South American post. He has been called to become a missionary in a Lutheran settlement of about 40,000 people. Before he departs, however, and as a condition of his going to South America, he will be married.

The young substitute is a native of this part of the State and is well known in the community. He lacks about seven months of having com pleted his theological education in the schools, but his acceptance of the call to 66uth America will make up for him, the credits that he lacks.

SCIENTISTS PICK CAPE ROCK FOSSILS Carry Off 150 Pounds of Rare Specimens After Few Hours Search. Cape Rock was a stamping ground for fossils Sunday afternoon and yester day. Prof. D. K. Gregor. of the de partment of geology of the Univer sity of Missouri, and F. A. Samson, bibliographer of the Missouri Histor ical Society, visited there and carried away about l."0 pounds of various specimen fossils that will be used in the scientific laboratories at Colum bia. Both men are authorities on geology and the latter is a scientist who is known probably better in Eastern sci entific centers and in Europe than he is right in his home State. The men gathered the specimens that they wish to use by picking them from the face of exposed rocks ami by getting them out of the ground. A study of the fossils that have gather-1 ed will reveal the character of the plant and animal life that prevailed in this section of the world many hun dreds of years ago. Both men departed from the Cape yesterday afternoon to go to St. Marys j where they will conduct scientific ex- i peditions up both the Little and Big Saline valleys. Mr. Samson recently gave a coliec tion of shells and geological specimens all valued at $80,000 which it took him a lifetime to gather together, to the State. He has had more than a score : of things in his line of scientific work named after him.

Frank Royster's mule became avari cious last night at feeding time and, after Frank had placed live large ears of corn in the feed-box, grabbed a sixth ear. It wasn't an ear of com that Frank's mule grabbed, though, but rather one of Frank's own hearing and listening machines. Mr. Royster is a junk dealer, well known in all parts of the Cape. He re sides at the Green Tree Hotel and stables his mule, which draws his junk wagon about town, at a barn in Smel- terville. The junk business was good yester- day and the mule had been called up on to haul unusually heavy loads about the city. The good old product of Mis souri's farms did K?s work uncomplain ingly and manifested no dissatisfac tion until the stable was reached.
