While his "pal" was entertaining the son of the owner of a Hudson car, a daring youth stote an extra tire off the automobile Sunday night, while the car was standing near the inter section of Broadway and Spanish .street. The thief was caught in the act by C. M. Morton and his wife, as the returned from the theater. He ran into the Courthouse yard and dis appeared in the dark. The companion of he thief was caught by Morton and his wife, but they released him Alien he professed ignorance of the theft. The automobile was the property of J. C. Merchant of llinio, who had lijlfc left the automohile at the corner I of Bi oadway and Spanish streets. His son did not want to go to the theater, and the father left him in charge of the machine. While sitting in the front seat, the hoy was joined by a lad about 14 years old. The stranger climbed into the automobile and began to entertain his new friend, thus distracting his at tention from the other boy, who im mediately got busy removing the auto tire. The little thief had succeeded in his work when he was discovered by Morton and his wife as they were re turning from the theater. The boy dropped the tire and ran, while the other who had been enter taining young Merchant, jumped out of the machine. He was caught, how ever, before he could get away. The boy told Morton and his wife that he was not a party to the transaction. The boy who was caught by the Morton couple told his mother, who is a prominent Cape woman, that he was merely a victim of circumstances. He lives with his grandmother. He told his mother that he and his younger brother had gone downtown and had decided to attend the show. He could ;;ot go because of the lack of funds, and waited for his brother on the out side. While waiting there, the Hud son car drove up and he got on the lun.ni'ig beard.

Kenvon, his bride r.n l Dr. Rhodes and his bride, who w ere married on the same day, depart ed on their honeymoons on the same train, will return home today after a brief stay at the Hotel Jefferson in St. Louis. These two couples were together most of the time in St. Louis. They ate together, went automobiling to gether", attended theaters together, and occupied suites adjoining each other. It w as in reality two couples on one honeymoon. It was originally plan ned that they would remain away from the city for two weeks, but because D. Rhodes had patients awaiting his return, and Prof. Kenyon was com pelled to take up his duties at the Nor n.al School, their honeymoons were ab breviated. Dr. Rhodes married Miss Ruth Glenn, the charming daughter of Mr. and Mrs. David A. Glenn, and Prof. Kenyon married Miss Rose Leming, daughter of M. E. Leming, and like wise one of the society belles of the city. The two couples were intimate friends when they were courting. When they became engaged, they planned to participate in each others wedding, ! . ii i t ii and then g0 honeymooning together. And their arrangements were realized. 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 needed to prevent and cure hog cholera and expel worms." F. F. BRAUN & BROS. MRS. G. H. GROSS TO BE BURIED FRIDAY Wife of Well-Known Cape Man Made Strenuous Fight For Life. The funeral of Mrs. Louise Gross, wife of Gottfried Gross, will be held Friday afternoon at 1 :30 o'clock- The ceremony will be held from the Lu theran Trinity Church, where Rev. August Wilder will deliver the funer al oration. The body will then be taken to the Lorimier Cemetery for burial. Mrs. Gross died, as announced in yesterday's issue of The Tribune, aft er an illness of several weeks. Death was due to cerebral meningitis. About eight weeks ago, Mrs. Gross suffered a nervous breakdown and was con fined to her bed for several days. She rallied, howere, and this buoyed up the hope that she would soon regain her normal condition. About four weeks ago she suffered a relapse. She grew worse and her condition soon became critical. For more than a week before her death she was in a state of subconsciousness, and only her strong constitution pro longed her life. Mrs. Gross was bora at Gordo nville, Oc t. 12, 1878. She was the daughter of John and Wilhelmina Schmidt, a very prominent family of Cape Coun ty. She received her education in the Trinity school of Cape Girardeau, and while attending this school, she made her home with Mrs. Wilhelmina Traupe, her grandmother, who is still living. After being graduated from this school and receiving her confirmation Mrs. Gross returned to Gordonville where she lived until she was married. She became the bride of Gottfried Gross, Aug. 10, 1900. One daughter was born to the couple. In 1903, Mr, Gross and his family moved to the Cape, where he established his busi ness. He went into partnership with Frank Ruh, and since then they have conducted a saloon on Good Hope street. The saloon was not opened yesterday morning and will remain closed until after the funeral. Mrs. Gross is survived by her hus band, Gottfried H. Gross; her daugh ter, Leone, 14 years old; her parents her brother, Gus Schmidt, and her sis ter. Mrs. Clara Eangert. The latter still lives in Gordonville, while the other relatives reside in the Cape. FRAUD TALES DON'T WORRY JEFF HUTSON Chief Thinks Investigation Wj! Swell His Lead Over Brinkopf. Chief of Police Hutson was little concerned over the contest of his elec tion, the notice of which wad served on the chief Thanksgiving night by his opponent, Henry Brinkopf. The latter was defeated by a majority of 49 votes. according to the official count. Chief Hutson declared that he would look with the best expectations into the future, adding that this contest would do him more jjood than injury lie is hopeful that the contest, filed by his -defeated opponent, will swell his majority. He says he is confident of taking charge of the sheriff's office at the beginning of the year. In The noticf of contest, it is charg ed that a number of fraudulent votes were cast. The precincts of Kloster- rnann, Pecan Grove and Dutchtown are mentioned as the places in whih more than 100 illegal ballots were cast. The contest is to be prosecuted by a non partisan committee. The contest notice charges that the investigation of this committee found numerous instances of illegal voting. It is said that many voters cast their vote in Dutchtown and then again in Cape Girardeau. These votes will be thrown out, the committee says, and it is planned to thus show Brinkopf was elected. It is also stated in the notice that 27 absentee votes were not counted, due to mistakes made by the election judges and clerks. These votes also favor Brinkopf, the committee says. There were 55 absentee votes cast in the entire county, and 27 were reject ed, because ie ballots did not bear the names of the judges and clerks as provided by law. The investigation of this non-partisan committee is said to have re vealed the fact that a man who was not a resident of Dutchtown, cast his billot, and also that there was the name of a man on the books who had moved to another State more than. 17 years ago. The unofficial returns of the elec tion gave Chief Hutson a majority of 33 votes over his Republican opponent. This lead, however, was increased by the official count and finally reach ed 49. The non-partisan committee has em the contest. I M. E. LEMING HEADS COMMERCIAL CLUB George P. Marsh Expected to be Made Secretarj Member ship Campaign on. M. E.

Scientists of the Mayo clinic in this city believe they have discovered the micro-organism believed to be responsible for the plague of infantile paralysis, which killed and crippled 20,000 children last summer. If the deductions are correct, a vac cine can probably be developed which will effect a cure for the dreaded dis ease. The discovery was made by the Mavo brothers, and if it proves to be as important as it now indicates, they will have made another remarkable contribution to the medical Jrofes-j sion. As surgeons the Mayos are not sur- nassed in the world. Eminent sur geons from every land visit the Mayo institution to consult them and to watch them in action.

SHERMAN HAUPT MAD DOG BITES TWO; GROCE SHOOTS IT Painter and Girl Attacked by Animal Before Policeman Is Summoned. After attacking a man and a little girl, a supposed mad dog was shot and killed Thursday afternoon by Police man Groce, who put five bullets through the animal before it died. The man who was bitten is William Hamilton of 319 South Ellis street. The name of the little girl could not be ascertained, as she disappeared be fore any cf the neighbors knew what had happened. Hamilton was bitten on the calf of the right leg after his trou.sers were torn to shreds. Hamilton was painting the front porch of the residence of Joseph Fuerth, 130 South Sprigg street. H noticed the hound in the yard and chased it out several times. The last time the dog sprang at him, froath ing at its mouth, and jammed his teeth into the leg of his victim. Hamilton knocked the dog into the street. Policeman Groce was called, and when he arrived the dog had gone back into Fuerth's yard. The policeman cor nered the animal in the backyard, after the neighbors had armed themselves with clubs and other primitive weap ons. Ue began shooting as the dog attemted to attack him. Groce fired five shots at the dog and every one took effect. The bullets were fired from a 44-calibre pistol. The carcass was buried by the policeman yesterday morning. The brains of the deg were not examined as is usually done In such cases to ascertain wheth ei the animal really was rabid. The little girl who was bitten was in the icinity of Bloomfield and Pacific street when attacked. She was on her way to a store when overtaken by th dog. NO HOOP SKIRTS AT THE CEMETERY BALL Cost of Wire Will Forbid Con struction of Zeppelin Costumes', Ladies Say. The active members of the Ceme tery Association will give a "farewell" luncheon at the home of Mrs. Louis Pott Thursday afternoon. The title of the feast might indicate that the organization wa disbanding, but it isn't. It merely means that this will be the last important meeting of the presept year. The luncheon will be given at the expense of the ladies. Each member who attends will be taxed her propor tion of the cost of the feast. At this meeting work for next season will be outlined, and plans for completing the fund necessary to provide a pagoda over the Lorimier graves will also be discussed. The date of the Colonial ball, which will be given sometime this winter, may be decided upon at the meeling tomorrow. Only ladies who are 60 years of age or over will be permitted to actively participate in the dance, which may be given at the Elks club. The quadrille, the Virginia reel and other old-tirae steps will be danced by the ladies. It was announced yes terday by M. J. Koeck, treasurer of the Cemetery Association, that the hoop-skirt feature of the entertain ment had been dropped. Tlie increase in the cost of wire, as a result of the war, makes it impos sible for the association to construct any hoop-skirts before peace has been declared, and an inventory taken a few days ago revealed the fact that there are not enough hoop-skirts in the gar rest of the Cape to go around. These are the reasons why the puff was taken out of the Colonial ball. PEACE MOTION IS DEFEATED Rome, Dec. 7. A motion introduced in the Chamber of Deputies yesterday urging peace was defeated by a vote of 343 to 47. Those who voted in the minority were mostly Socialists. Pre mier Bonselli asked for the rejection of the motion not, he said, because he wished the Italian Parliament to vote against peace in itself, but against an Italian initiative for peace while the country was pledged with its allies not to end the war until victory was at tained. 1
