THE WEEKLY TRIBUNE AND CAPE COUNTY HERALD. FRIDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 24, 1916.
NORMAL TRIMS MAYFIELD BOYS, SCORE 111 TO 0 Local Rugby Squad Simply Tramps on Visitors in Game Here. CONTEST IS ONLY PRACTICE FOR CAPE Coach Corleau of the Normal Re ports the Game for The Tribune. The Normal eleven cruf bed the team of the Will Mayfield in a game played yesterday at the Fairgrounds. The score was 111 to 0 in favor of the Normals. A fusillade of touch-downs was made by the latter while their op ponents tried vainly to score. The Will Mayfield team was on the defensive from start to finish. This is probably the largest score ever piled up by any team on the local grounds. The coach of the Cape team reported the game for The Tribune, which follows: By F. J. Courleux. The Normal School eleven found it self yesterday afternoon at the Fair grounds and buried its small adver saries under a shower of touch-downs. Seventeen touch-downs and 0 goals from touch-downs were the result of the "pep" the Normalites exhibited. The cause of this sudden display of lighting spirit may be attributed to the cold weather, but close friends ef the players say the boys have had a great desire to feel the joy of romping rough-shod over some body else, just as the C. B. C. boys did to them in St. Louis. Every played on the team is happy today as each of them feels he played his part in rolling the lar gest score ever made by a Cape Nor mal team. The team from Marble Hill was light and inexperienced and were on the defense up to the end of the game, but were at a loss to solve the over head game of the Normals. Parker and Dudley, at ends, played a great game. Seven touch-downs was their lot, most of them from passes which they pulled out of the air and convert ed into points. Parker also added eight goals after touch-downs out of eleven tries. Parker's work is more note worthy considering the fact that he has been suffering from a twisted knee all season. The backfield, Ranney, Cline, Black and Lathem, worked like a clock when on the offense. Black had the team on its toes from start to end, and used gcod judgment in selecting his plays, in getting the players to execute them. Ranney, Cline and Black each got two touch-downs, while Lathem got one besides the pleasure of sending "Zeppelins" into the outstretched hands of Parker and Dudley. Lahmeyer, Joyce and Crecelius each scored one touch-down. Crecelius, besides getting a touch-down, gave the spectators and the visiting team a chance to see real kicking. "Crecy" had his trusty well oiled, and on nearly every kick-off, sent the oval from 40 to C5 yards. HLs kicks were high and long, giving his teammates sufficient time to get near the fellow who was unfortunate enough to get it. The visiting team made first down by pushing through the line. Their plays were usually smothered by the Cape team fcefore well started, and if the man carrying the ball did get past the end, he met a worse fate. Ran ney and Joyce had on their tackling clothes and received many well-earned comments on their hard, low, clean cut tackling. Marble Hill won the choice and was elected to kick. At 3:15 o'clock the ball got its start, and in eight rushes, the first touch-down was made; Cline got it. Just one minute before the game ended Crecelius was shifted from cen ter to left end. A long pass from La them and "Crccy" made the last touch down. Between those two touch-downs and at the rate of one every three minutes or less, the other 15 were tallied. Coach Zimmermann of Jackson ref ereed the game and kept both teams playing fast ball, allowing no time for arguments or "jawing." Cape line-up: Dudley, Walling, Cre celius, left end; Klaus, Farrar, left tackle; Bartles, Miller, Johnson, left guard; Crecelius, Farrar, center; Fitz gerald, Clark, James, right guard; Lahmeyer, Johnson, right tackle; Par ker, right end; Cline, Joyce, quarter back; Black, right half; Ranney, left half; Lathem, full back.

Two fires in the Cape yesterday aft ernoon and last night kept the depart ment occupied until after 4 o'clock this morning. The first alarm came from the .Machen hame on BeHevue street and the second from the .south ern part of the city. The lire department returned short ly after 10 o'clock last night from 026 South Fountain street, where a con flagration in a residence had been ex tinguished. Three hours later the de partment was summoned back to the building, where the blaze had been re kindled. The firemen made a record run to the scene, but the building was en gulfed in flames when they reached the ?.cene. For more than two hours the battle between the firemen and the conflagration raged, but the blaze was finally quenched. The home, how ever, was reduced to ruins. The total loss could not be estimated last night. Chief French of the fire department told a representative of The Tribune that the lire was caused by an over heated furnace. Ho said every tra; ? of the blaze had been extinguished be fore the department left the lioi;s early in the evening. Ho attributes the second blaze to some smoldering em bers that were hidden in the walls and caused the flames to break out anew. The home was occupied by Harry Dai ringer and family. The first blaze was discovered in the building shortly after 0 o'clock, while the BarriniTrs were attending a picture show. The alarm was turned in by a pedestrian who happened to be passing. He saw smoke issuing from the windows of the upper story of the building and sounded an alarm. The fire department made a quick run to the scene and soon had the blaze under control. A window was shat tered with the nozzle of the hose and within less than live minutes the tire was supposed to be out. The firemen examined the building to make sure that the- fire was quenched, and when convinced that the blaze was out, they returned to the station. Only a small hole was burn ed in the floor of th kitchen by the first blaze. The second condae-: ation wiped out the household effects and destroyed the building. No one was injured. i Shortly before noon yesterday the home of H. L. Mac-hen. "15 BeHevue street, which is occupied by his moth er, was damaged by a fire that orig inated upon the roof. The flames were confined to the up per part of the building but the water, which leaked into the house, damaged the interior of the building and house hold goods. It is believed that the fire was caus ed by sparks that came from the chim ney and fell on the roof. MOXEY IN EGGS Eggs are not bankable but the money from their sale is.

WILD TURKEY FEAST AT FREEMAN'S CAFE A wild turkey dinner a spread with plenty of white meat, dark meat, cran berries, "stuflin'," celery, "French fries," more white meat and cranber ries and then some more dark meat last night formed the center of a dual celebration at the Crescent Cafe. The banquet was a testimonial of Chris M. Freeman's accuracy with his shotgun and at the same time was in honor of the forty-third anniver sary of City Clerk R. W. Frissell, who was a guest of honor. Mv. and Mrs. Freeman were hosts at the long banquet table that was drawn up in their restaurant after 1 their regular diners had been served. The red-legged gobbler that brvame the center of attraction was slain vir tually in the suburbs of the Cape. It was the third that Mr. Freeman brought down within 24 hours. Last night as the large slices of white meat went the rounds of the table and here and there a:i enthu siastic diner brandished a "drum stick." .Mr. Freeman told the story of how iie bagged the gobbler. The bird, when dressed weighed about twenty pounisanu was one oi uie u.rg-si - r a i t . . i broucht into tne ( ape. lie snot it Friday morning. "I got to the swamps or rather where the swamps used to be located just across the big ditch below town." Mr. Freeman began, "and all I could hear was the dir. of wild turkeys.

Mr. Frissell, who celebrated his birthday yesterday, is a native of tlu Cape. He is a son of Mr. and Mrs. N. C. Frissell and he has been City j Clerk for the la.t year and a quarter. When lie was requested la.-t night to act as toastmaster, he eyed the white mrat and cranberries and re plied: "I don't like toat. 0:ut your fooli V and I'll take a second joint!" Those who were Mr. and Mrs. Free man' guests were Frank Lawler. El lis Daugherty, Elmer SV, H. N. Frissel!. W. C. Guer.rie', Roll i Fex. j Louis Polark, Jacob Polaek and G. P. Mar-di. i Since Mr. Freeman's successes have j been made known in the Cape, several hunt'ng parties have been organized, in the Cape to visit the turkey infested districts south of the city. Motorists who have arrived recealy in the Cape after passing over the Hock Levee road declare that they have been able to see the wild turkeys from the road, and John Dohognc declared the other day he saw three in the roadway that refused to take flight when his auto approached. WASEM EXPECTS TO BE HERE FOR X-MAS The condition of H. C. Wasem. the well-known druggist of Haarig, is im proving so rapidly that it is believed he will be back home for a Christmas dinner. This was the contents of a telegram sent bv Mrs. Wasem. who is at the bedside of her husband. I Mr. Wasem was operated on by Dr. ! Charles Mayo, the well-known surgeon ! of Rochester, Minn. He rallied rap ! idlv and began to show signs of im provement immediately after the oper ation. Mrs. Wasem, who has been with her husband since he went to Rochester two weeks ago, will b? back some time next week. She states in the tele gram, which was sent to the employes of the drug store, that 5he expects to be back in the Cape the first of next week. Mr. Wasem is so confident of com plete recovery that he remarked in the message, he intended to partake of a turkey feast when he returned to the Cape. For more, than a year he has been on a diet of railk and eggs. PRIEST EULOGIZES FATHER MURTAUGH ! Life Long Friend oi Dead Clergy- man Says Death Had No Sting for Him. An impressive ceremony, perpetuat ing the memory of Fatner James A. Murtaugh, was held yesterday morn ing at St. Vincent's Catholic Church, on South Spanish street. A large crowd from the parish attendee! the ceremony, which was marked by a beautiful tribute by Rev. Father Von Tourenhout of Ste. Genevieve, a life long friend of Father Mtutaugh. The solemn requiem mass was cele brated by Rev. Father I.evan, presi dent of the college; Father Muhlsieper, of Kelso, was deacon, and Father M. D. Collins, of Jackson, subdeacon. Father Walsh was the master of cere monies, and Father Connors, thurefer. A score of priests from the neighbor ing towns were in the sanctuary. Mem bers of the Knights of Columbus at tended in a body. Father Von Tourenhout, a noted pul pit orator, chose the text, "Mihi vivere, Christus est, et mori lucrum." which means "For me to live is Christ and to die is gain." Guided by these words, Father Von Tourenhout touched on the Hfo of tho iocf,asfy! and showed that his life was a positive proof of the Biblical quotation, which he chose as his theme. He mentioned the universality of death sparing no one, coming at any time and conquering all. "Naturally r-V.r;-t tenches that there is at 'i better world after this one. Thi ---- - - i hf4 - i lief made St. Paul crv out: Oh, death where is thy sting; oh. grave where is thy victory! Christ robbed death of its sting." Father Von Tourenhout then turned to the life of his late friend, whom he described as a religious leader, as an educator, as a missionary, and above all, as a priest who lived as Christ decreed, and therefore, for him death had not sting. In conclusion the speak er said : "All glorif v the war hero who i go forth conquering nations and cities, but at the same time causing dest rue- aition and making widows and orphans. i How very much more praise-worthy the educator, the missionary or the priest who builds up and strengthens instead of teaming down and destroy ing? Much m;ht he snid of Father Mur- targVs offo-ls towards civic inprove ment :rd social progress, especially here in Cap" Girardeau, and about many other things that he attempted and accomplished, but after all, his great work was his spiritual work to the souls of men. His work as a Catholic priest certainly after his many years of priestly service he could say: "For me io live is Christ and to die is gain!" Blessed are they who co ami do in like manner.'" "MAW" COOPER HAS BIRTHDAY TODAY Two Turkeys and the Trimmin's Quartet Music to be Features at Party. .Mrs. Ollie Cooper, known all over the Cape and Southeast Missouri as "Maw" Cooper, together with her "boys" today will celebrate her birth day.

GIRL, DRESSED AS A MAN, HELD IN SOUTH Stenographer Says She Became a Hobo to be With Pugilist She Loves. Memphis, Tenn., Nov. 17. Vera Harrison, 18 years old, dressed in a boy's suit, told while occupying a cell in the Memphis jail how she had "ho boed" all the way from Houston, Tex., to this city posing as a man. She was in love with Terry Ketchell, a prize fighter, and when she found he was coming north she decided to accompany him. He had no money. He told her he was going to "hobo." Undaunted, she procured a suit of male attire and one night boarded a freight train in the Houston yards. The couple made their way northward, frequently being put oft trains. At Anniston, Ketchell got work in a munition fac tory. After a few weeks Ketchell de cided to come to Memphis, where he heard he could probably get a bout with a local fighter. He was looking for the sportsman when a policeman noticed the form of his companion, concluded "it" was a woman anrt placed them under arrest. The girl said she had been married to Norris Ela, mate on a steamer. "Terry is a prize fighter," said the girl. "He licked the champion light weight of Texas and beat Jimmy Pa pas, the Greek. Terry is the best boy in the whole world. He loves me and I love him, and some day when we both get out of here, we're going to get married. Terry's been a father and a big brother to me ever since we ! left and started hoboing. "We've hopped freight trains to gether, ridden the blind baggage to gether, camped in the woods, and h? always has been the same boy. He has protected me from other tramps on freight trains, bought me food when he didn't have enough money to buy anything for himself, and stood by me all the way through. "I am a stenographer. I worked at Svift & Co.'s plant in Galveston until I married Norris Ela. I didnt marry him because I loved him; it was simply to get away from home, where my mother and father treated me mean. Terry advised me to stick to my husband. My father took me to San Antonio, Tex., to break up the attachment between us, but I left and: joined Terrv at Houston. KINDER WILL OPPOSE KAGE IN THE SPRING James A. Kinder, the Haarig drug gist, is going to be a candidate for Mayor at the April election, accord ing to the reports from every quarter of the city- He has not publicly stated whether he would make the race, but his close friends say he has given them his promise to run. His entry will eliminate Ctto Koch titzky, who had been counted on to make another efTort to land the job. He wag defeated two years ago, but it was generally understood that he would try again. Most of the Kochtitzky following of two years ago have lined up for the Haarig man. Kinder was formerly chairman of the Democratic County Committee. Friends of Mayor Kage have been urging him to come out for re-election, and while it is believed that he will run again, he has not so officially declared his intentions. Councilman Medley last night stated that he had conferred with Mayor Kage concerning the campaign in the spring, and he is convinced that the Mayor will make the race. Four members of the City Council are also to be elected next spring. The councilmen whose terms expire are: Walter D. Black, first ward; Charles Armgardt, second; Charles Kaess, third; Jay A. Fowler, fourth. Mr. Armgardt, who has announced himself as a candidate for Chief of Police, will be eliminated from the race for council. Roscoe O'Connell, it is said, will be a candidate for council in the first ward. Mr. Black was once ouoted as saying he would not run again, but his friends have urged him to make the race. Mr. Fowler has not decided whether he cares to run for office again. In the event that he de cides to step out, Capt. J. L. Stout will be a candidate for the council in the fourth ward. His friends have been urging him to enter the political arena for several years, but he has never consented to do so. DOING THE WORK. W. T. Nanney, Noel, Mo., writes, "Your B. A. Thomas' Hog Powder is doing the work down in this part of the world. It proved to be what we need to prevent and cure hog cholera and spel worms." F. F. BRAUN BROS. ARMLESS MAN HERE, DRIVINGBIG AUTO Ohioan is Expert Chauffeur and Writes With His Month. Frank E. Fithen, an armless auto mobile wonder, arrived in the Cape yesterday afternoon, accompanied by his wife. They came here in their scarlet-red luxurious "Oakland-Six, Speedster" in which they are making their third tour of the United States. The armless wizard attracted quite a crowd as he stopped on the street corners and demonstrated his skill in chauiTeuring an automobile with the stumps of his arms. These are cut off above the elbow. The steering wheel of the machine is made for the specific use of the arm less man. There are several rings in the wheel, and in these he holds his arms while operating the car. To show his certainty and cleverness in run ning his automobile, Fithen gave a demonstration of quick stops, backing up and slow driving. After each dem onstration he would offer photographs of himself and wife for sale. His skill in motoring without arms does not limit his cleverness. He writes as good a hand as a trained penman, and he writes with his mouth. He will push the pencil or writing utensil b? tween his teeth and write anything just as well as any other person would with the use of his hands. Fithen, who is stopping at the St. Charles Hotel, is on his third trip through the United States. His na tive town is Steubenville. O.. where he and his wife reside. He lost his arms in a railroad wreck when only nine years old. The couple intend to leave the Cape this morning. They will go to Dyers burg, Tenn., where they expect to ar rive this evening. They stored their machine in Black's garage on Broad way. RUSSELL DEFEATED HILL BY 1165 VOTES Returns From Counties Show That Congressman Ran Ahead of Wilson.
