A- Macom is suffering with the grippe. Miss Zelma Goza of near town this morning purchased a fine piano of one of our local dealers. Mrs. Ellen Query and daughter, Miss Estelle, of Eloomfield, are guests of Mta Lou Query. On a aeoant of the illness of her John Enderle, star witness in the trial against Roy Rhodes, was yester day arrested by Sheriff Hutson. He is to answer "a charge of carrying con cealed weapons for which Mayor Kage issued a warrant last December. En derle was released on bond furnished by several friends who were attending the trial, which is being held at the Circuit Court in Jackson. The trial against Roy Rhodes is a sequel to a free-for-all fight at a pic nic in Dutch town, Aug. 5, last, when Rhodes and his two brothers, Grove rand Lester, engaged in a cut ting affray with Enderle and August Martin and Henry Wessell, all of Dutchtown. Mrs. Martha Rhodes, mother of the three brothers, was jointly charged with felonious assault, but the case against her and her other two sons will be beard later. When the trial was called a sever ance was asked by Harry E. Alex ander, who is defending the three Rhodes brothers, and the separate trials were granted. They will be heard later. Enderle, in testifying before Judge Kelley yesterday, related the details of the fight. He said he was attacked by Roy Rhodes, and the two brothers came tc Roy's assistance. He drew his knife in -self-defense. The Wes sel brothers, he said, rescued him from his assailants. All the participants of the affray ;ere more or less badly cut during the fight. They were treated by a physi- s. Rhodes was also cut. She THEARMORPLANT ExecutiYe Says He Would Fttor Extending City To Take In Site. WOULD MAKE CAPE 3 MILE; LONGER Permission of Parents of Young Couple Necessary Before License it Issued. Plant Saployes Would Get All Conveniences, Mayor Announce. Mayor Kage announced yesterday that in the event Cape Girardeau is chosen as the location for the new $11,000,000 armor plate plant, he will extend the city linvts to include the home of the plant, even though a site three miles from the present boundries of the city is selected. "If the Government picks Cape Gir ardeau to locate the plant," said the Mayor, "we must insure every con venience to the plant and to the em ployes of it. "I would be willing to extend the city limits in any direction three miles in order to take in the Government plant. By bringing the plant's loca tion within the city boundries, it would be supplied with light and water from the city as well as modern street im provements. "From what I am told, there seems to be an excellent chance -of Cape Gir ardeau being selected. Senator Oliver appears to be confident that the plant will come here, and I hope he is cor rect. "Everything that could be done to get it has been done, and if we should be fortunate enough to get the plant the city must do everything possible to afford modern conveniences. If the plant comes here, it will not be built in the city proper. I suppose it would go a mile or so in either direction. But wherever it might be located, hun dreds of houses would be built, and these people would want electric lights, city water and paved streets. By ex tending the city, we could accommo date them. "The city is prepared to go the limit to take care of the employes of the plant, if the project is located here. Fire protection would, of course, 13 necessary, and arrangements would have to be made for that. But I don't fancy there would be the slightest objection." Forest Sweany and Miss Josephine Sitick, of Chester, 111., eloped to Jack son yesterday and were married by Justice of the Peace Putz after the father of the youthful bridegroom had given his consent to the marriage and presented the consent of the parents of the young girl. The young couple arrived in Jack son two days ago and attempted to procure a license from Recorder of Deeds Siemers. He, however, refused to issue the document because of the youthful appearance of the young girl. When the bridegroom saw that his funds were getting very low, he wired his father for money. In response to the message the father paid an unexpected visit to his run-away son. After a long confer ence, the son finally succeeded in per suading the father to give his consent to the marriage. When the girl's par ents, who live in Chester, were com municated with and gave their con sent, the ceremony was performed. The young couple left Jackson im mediately after the marriage. The bridegroom, whose father Ls employ ed in the railroad shops at Chester 111., is 18 years old, ami his bride is one year his junior. CAPE LARRUPS THE DEXTER B. B.

M. H. Wilier, Guardian. EXECUTOR'S NOTICE! Notice is hereby given that letters testamentary upon the estate of James A. Murtaug., deceased, have been granted to the undersigned, by the Cape G-r-Heau Court of Common Pleas of Cape Girardeau County, Mis souri, braring date the 2nd day of January, 101T.

Steven Paul Hueber, Executor. with her three sons with felonious as sault Several witnesses for the defense testified that Enderle tried to borrow a gun before the fight started. Sev eral more witnesses will be heard to day, and the case will then be given to the jury. A heated argument arose between the Judge and the prosecuting attor ney when court convened, when the latter asked for a delay for the pro ceedings until the witness arrived The prosecuting attorney called the Judge's attention to the fact that the roads were almost impassable and that the arrival of the witnesses was de layed by the heavy snow. It is thought that in any event the outcome of the trial against Roy Rhodes will have a bearing on the charges against the two brothers and his mother. The jurors for the trial are: Fritz Moeller, Adolph Zschille, Leo Schaper, J. M. Randol, A. J. Schrock, Nick Harness, Ben Phelps, A. K. W. Sprengel. J. D. Wissman, Adolph Rudert, J. W. Rieman and Robert E. Masters on. The case against Enderle will be heard at the next term of court after he has been given the usual prelim inary hearing before a Justice ef the Peace.

More Snow Will Be Falling Soon Says Goosebone Colonel Matt Discourses On Weather a Bit, And Then Describes His Hondymoon Bride Tucks Him in Bed. Aeep on your red nanneis. I see there's more blustry weather on the way," said Col. Matt Morrison, the goosebone weather prophet, yesterday, after detecting a snow cloud acting suspiciously over the northern out skirts of the city. The Colonel has not been visible oft en during the past wo weeks, but his absence has not been the result of seeing his shadow. He is honeymoon ing again, and feels that it is proper for him to remain largely in eclipse. He emerged early last week and predicted the two snow storms, and then went into hiding again. While calling on friends yesterday, he map ped out a weather program for the next few days. He sees another snow before Sunday, with rain for today. There will be a few warm days this month, say3 the goosebone prophet, and winter may extend through Febru ary and into March. When the Colonel made his first ap pearance in public after taking unto himself a better half, he was confront ed by a number of Cape Girardeau ladies who had expressed Leap Year intentions to accept him as their true and lawful husband. Nix on the mush," replied the Colonel. "I'm married now and I'm goin' to stay married. I figured it would be pretty hard on some of you wimmen to give me up, but it's all over now." The goosebone prophet admitted yesterday his bride tucked the covers carefully under him during the recent cold morojags and she trot out and made the fires. When the Morrison bedroom was warm enough to toast the Coloftel tootsies, bis bride would turn back Che comforts and he piled! out. The basket ball team of the Cape High School inaugurated the season on its own court by trouncing the Dex ter team by a score of 40 to 21 last night. The battle was hard fought, and only decided in the last half, when several baskets, thrown by Lehr and Ranney, of the local team, gave the Cape boys a comfortable lead. The star of the defeated team was Sislor, who played left guard. He made five field goals, while only one of his teammates, Clark, had one goal to his credit. The victory of the local team was principally due to the excellent team work. None of the local players at tempted to star individually, but all united their playing strength against the opponents in order to down him. After the game had been put on ice, five substitutes were inserted in the lineup. They were: McBride, Mat thews, J. Ranney, Black and Doherty. They all managed to hold the Dexter team for the rest of the game. Prof. Courleux of the Normal was the referee. Goodin was selected time keeper and Prof. Dunn kept score. The lineup of the Cape team was: Baird, r.f.; Lehr, l.f.; Massingill, c; Ranney. r.g.; Kinder, l.g. The Dexter team lineup was as follows: Pruitt, r.f.; Sisler, l.f.; Stone, c; Clark, r.g.; Buchanan, l.g. They had two substi tutes, namely Vaught and Hart. The game was largely attended and every point scored by the Cape team was applauded by the spectators. Next Friday the Cape boys will meet the Sikeston team and the following Fri day the Bloomfield High School team will be here. ARKANSAN'S LEG IS AMPUTATED IN CAPE Limb Was Broken When Rolled ou Him From Train. Log Frank Gardner, a timberman of Biggers, Ark., had his left leg am putated at the knee at St. Francis Hos pital last night. The patient has been confined to the hospital for several weeks, suffering from a fracture of the 1 " i rv . . . . umo. ine operation oecame neces sary, when the attending physician saw that his patient was threatened with blood poisoning. Gardner was brought here three weeks ago. He was hurt in Biggers while piling timber. The. timber had been loaded on a freight car, and the stakes of the car gave away under the weight of the timber and several logs rolled on Gardner's leg. The left leg was badly mangled below the knee. He was brought to the Cape, but because of his condition, an operation could not be performed upon his ar rival. When it became apparent that blood, poisoning: as developing, tie r pe'ration was perftfrnied. ' S7 The Right Number rHEN you go out to make a call in per son, you always assure yourself that you have the right address. In making a telephone call, it saves a lot of time and bother, to be sure of the number. The absolutely sure way is to first consult the telephone directory not trusting to memory and then listen carefully when the operator repeats back to you the number, correcting her if she is wrong. When you get the wrong number, it is always well to remember that the person called to the tele phone by mistake is never at fault and should be treated with the utmost courtesy. Every Bell Telephone is a Long Distance Station Cape Girardeau Bell Telephone Co. VANDIVER TO AID CAPE GET PLANT Former Besident of This City to Be Here When Commission Comes. W.D. Vandiver, United States Sub treasurer at St. Louis, has assured Cape Girardeau of his support in the fight of the Cape to secure the Gov ernment armor plate plant, for which $11,000,000 have been appropriated by Congress. M. E. Leming, president of the Commercial Club, returned last night from St. Louis, where he had a conference with Mr. Vandiver regard ing the Government plant. Mr. Vandiver assured Leming that he would come to Cape Girardeau to help the city in its fight for the plant if the Location Board decided to visit Cape Girardeau. Although St. Louis is trying to land the plant, Mr. Van diver said he would support Cape Gir ardeau instead. Edward F. Goltra, Democratic Na tional Committeeman from Missouri, is making an effort to have the plant, located in St. Louis. He has secured the support of the president of the Deep Waterway Association. Several other influential men art? said to bo backing Mr. Goitra in his efforts to have St. Louis considered in this race. The Business Men's League, the leading commercial organization of St. Louis, however, is not taking any in terest in the proposition, in as much as the bill authorizing the establishment of the plant provides that the factory shall not be located near a large city. St. Louis, of course, has no chance t get the plant. MILK IN WINTER Why do your cows give less milk in winter than they do in summer?
