Miss Margaret Tinsley, the only fem inine County Clerk in the business, yesterday tame up to the Cape from her home at Caruthersville to attend the convention of the County Clerks' Association of Missouri, which is in session in the Cape.

She is County Clerk in Pemiscot County, and was elected .Nov. - For many years she was employed tin the oflice as deputy under her father. As a natural consequence, when her father died tight months ago, she tilled the place till the expira tion of his term. She was named for the position without a dissenting voice and as the election drew nigh, she announced herself a candidate for re election. She got it again, on account of her unquestioned ability and because there wasn't a man in the whole county who could muster courage enough to meet her on the stump in a campaign de bate. Miss Tinsley yesterday evening and last night spent the time visiting with Mrs. George E. llackmann, who ac companied her husband to the (.'ape.

' VINCENTIANS' HEAD IS DEAD IN PARIS Catholic Dignitary Was a Visitor to U. S. Six Years Ago-Father Levan Learns of His Demise. A cable from Paris to Father T. .1. Levan, president of St. Vincent's Col lege, yesterday, told of the death in Paiis of the very Rev. Emile Villette, superior general of the Vincentian Or der, and head of the Sisters of Char ity. He was one of the most learned men in the Catholic Church and his ac quaintance was world-wide. He was CI years of age, and for many years had been one of the most influ ential men in his church. Under his direction the two orders of which he was the head prospered to a remark able degree. He was most distinguish, ed as an executive. About six years ago the very Rev. Emile Villette visited the United I States and called upon the various communities where the Yincentians are established. In each city he was received with the iiio.-t unusual hon ors. "His retiring disposition and ab solute consecration to his high and holy work made him care little for the many attentions shown him," .-aid one of the priests at the College, who knew the dignitary personally. "His sole aim and desire in life was to promote piety in the hearts and lives of men." Mis death will necessitate an early election of a new head of the two or ders. Provincial councils will be called in tne United States, and two dele gates frm each province will attend a general assembly in some city to be designated by the delegates.

"What's that you're wearing?" ask ed the attorney for the car company, pointing to a stone in K cause's scarf. "I'll take it," answered Miller. Added to that, Krause's suit was thrown out of court, the Judge holding he had no right to sue as a poor per son. GKKMANY WILL SEND SOilO ITALIANS HOME Berlin. Nov. HI.

The opening of peace negotiations may per haps be expected with fair prospects of success in the course of th coming winter, according to Count Albert Ap ponyi, veteran Hungarian leader and former Hungarian Premier. Count Apponyi, who is visitnig Ger many to deliver twoaddresses on Hun garian history, expressed his views in an interview given to a correspondent of the Asosciated Press, in which he discussed the general European situa tion. "We cannot expect," he said, "to see peace negotiations opened within the next few weeks while the Rumanian campaign is still undecided.
