ORDERNOW Missouri Public Utilities Co. 400 Broadway WISEMAN REPORTED FOUND IN MT.VERNON (Continued from Page 1.) memory as a result of the exposure and was unable to recall his past. An eirort made last night by The Tribune to get into communication with Clyde Rasch at Mount Vernon failed. According to the information received from other sources in Mount Vernon Rasch is a laborer . Wiseman disappeared May CO, last year, when the boat in which he and Reuben Hoke, another veteran fisher man and a third man were returning from an island north of the city, where they had been fishing was over turned near a government fleet an chored on the east side of the river. Their skiff was overturned by the high waves. The other two saved their lives, but Wiseman disappeared under one of the dredge boats in the fleet and was not seen since. The other two men were unable to reach the city till the morning after the storm. Whether he really lost his life when the skiff overturned, or whether he was washed back on land and wandered about until he was found, is problematic since the mysterious letter has been received from Mount Vernon. Mrs. Wiseman said she would make every effort to determine whether the message was a .ioke or whether her husband was still living.

Miss Baird will accompany hira as far as St. Louis and return to this city. Aid of OSCAR SCHACK SAW FOUR SUBMARINES Says Speedy American Trans"" part Outdistanced German Undersea Craft. Oscar Schack .son of the weli known West End merchant who ar rived in France several weeks ago, has written several letters home about his trip over the ocean. Four submarines were sighted by the transport on which young Schack made the voyage, but they were too slow to be -dangerous. When the first U-boat was discov ered, Young Schack, writes, there was quite a commotion on board the American transport, but the speedy vessel soon outdistanced the subma rine. Three others were seen, but none of them got close enough to bo dangerous. Oscar writes that he did not suffer from sea sickness on the trip, and that the soldiers were given the same drill work on the ship that they had received while in camp on land. He is well pleased with army life and is enjoying the beautiful scenery in France. He has not been informed when the Americans now arriving over there will enter the trenches. YOUNG GIRL IS INJURED IN COLLISION OF TRAINS Bloom field Teacher Suffers Cuts and Bruises Others Slightly : Injured. In a collision between the Caruth- ersville local and the Poplar Bluff motor car south of the Frisco shops yesterday morning several -persons were slightly injured as they were thrown from their seats by the im pact. Miss Ruth Magee, a teacher of Bloomfield. suffered several cuts about the head and the face. She was the most seriously injured pas senger. . ;V The accident occurred on the curve south of the Frisco shops. The Ca- ruthersville train was backing into the passenger station, while the Pop lar Bluff train which had the right of way, was going south at a rapid speed. The rear coacn of the Ca ruthersville train was badly damaged My baby is two years old exactly. He is just as tall as the government table says he ought to be 33 3-4 inches. He doesn't weigh but 24 pounds, though, and the table says he ought to b3 3 pounds and 2 ounces heavier. What can I do about it? This is the sort of questions which mothers are asking of the busy wom en who are weighing and measuring the children of Cape Girardeau as a part of the nation-wide test of the welfare of American children. The success of the test as an aid in sav ing the lives of 100,000 children under five during Children's Year will be determined by the way mothers re spond to the challenge in this ques tion My child is underweight; what can I do about it? If a young child's weight is' as much as 2 pounds below the average for his height this should be a warn ing to his parents that the child's nu trition is not normal ,according to the Children's Bureau of the U. S. Department of Labor. If the weight falls markedly below the average the Children's Bureau suggests tiat the child be examined by a physician to see whether some fault in hygiene or diet or some defect or sickness is causing the malnutrition. In one large city where more than 82.000 children were weighed am: measured-it has been possible to di rect the mother to the nearest place where she could obtain the sort of information sh? needed as to how to care for her child and to bring his weight up to the average for his height. At the suggestion of the Children's Bureau the committee is urging par ents to take children found to be un derweight to their family physician, to infant welfare stations, or to chil dren's clinics for a thorough exami nation, and. if necessary, for treat ment. In this way the mother will re ceive advice as to what she can do to improve her child's health. And no cno has so good an opportunity as th- mother has to bring a child up to the average PROCLAMATION BY MAYOR. To the people of the City of .Cape Girardeau. As Mayor of the City of Cape Gir ardeau, I tjesne to direct your at tention to the statement of the Pres ident of the United States, designa ting June 2S'th 111 S as War Sav ings Day. On Juno 28th, it is expected that the people of the nation will assem ble at the schools or other designated meeting places in their respective districts and at these meetings pledge themselves to invest systematically in War Savings Stamp-:. In the words of the President, '"The great results which we seek can be obtain ed only by th participation of every member of the nation, young and old. in a national conceited thrift move ment. I, therefore, urge that our people everywhere pledge themselves as suggested by the Secretary of the Treasury, to the practice of thrift; to serve the government to their ut most in increasing production in all fields, necessary to the winning of the war; and that the people as evi dence of their loyalty invest all that thev can save in War Paving Stamps ." It behooves every citizen of this community to comply with the President's request as outlined above and I do hereby urge that the peo ple of this city set aside June 28th, 1018, as War Savings Day and cn that day assemble and consider their obligation to the government and pledge their loyal suppoit in the prosecution of the war by subscrib ing for War Savings Stamps ac cording to their means. In testimony whereof I have here unto set my hand this 15th day of June, A. D., 1018 H. II. HAAS.

CASTORIA For Infant and Children. The Kind You Have Aiways Bought Bears the (51 pitare of Registered Men Must Aban don Non-essential Em ploynfent July 1 WAR ORDER TO STOP FARM LABOR SHORTAGE Edict Effects Men fa Classes Two, Three And Four Of Draft The order issued recently by th'. War Department requiring all me:i ; registered under the draft act to en- ! gage in some productive business, it j was staled yesterday by the members of the local board, will aid consider ably in remedying the shortage of farm labor which ha; threatened to t-become a great menace to the har vesting of the crops. Inasmuc as many will be compelled to chang-' their occupation under this order, and farming is the greatest producing business in this county, it is believed by the members of the local board j that many will go to the farms and j hcip bring in the crops. J According to th-j instructions r. j ceived yesterday by the local boaia jfrom the War Department all men ! who have been placed in Classes Two, ' Three and Four, must seek some cm j ployment by which they become pro 'duting agents after July 1. Thoe j in Class One will not be effected by i the order, Blucher Sperling, secretary of the board, said for the reason that tr.ey will soon be called to the army. Should a registered man fail to comply with the War Department's "go to work" order, he will be sum moned ibefore the local board an 1 show cause why he should not be re classified and placed in Class On ', subu'cc to immediate military scrvico. Producing employment, the board members in Jackson explained, in cludes all branches of the business woiid, in which material is manufac tured needed by the government in the conduct of tin1 war, such farming, employment in the shoe fac tory, saw mills, whielT have govern ment contracts, flour mills and -powder mills engaged in making muni tions for the government. Numerous requests have been re ceived by County Farm Adviser Sftji Babcock from farmcis who are shor'. of help. Their crops, they say. wi.l go to wate in the fields if they can not secure farm hands within the next few days when t ii cutting of wheat wiil bn staited. Owing to th;? increased price offered for wheat the wheat acreage ia the Stale has be'-n greatly increased, and as h natural consequence more help will be ' quired to harvest the whait crop. Thi following instructions were re ceived ytbteiiiay by the local board showing the occupation- which haw been termed non-productive by th- War Department: Serving of food or drink, or either, in public places, including hotels an I social clubs. Passmgcr elevator operators and attendants, and door mm, footmen, carriage openers t-nd ether attend ants in clubs, hotels, stores, apart ment houses, ofllce buildings ami both houses. Ushers and other attendants en gaged and occupied in connection with games, sports and amusements, excepting actual performers in legiti mate concerts, operas or theatrical performances. Performers employed and occupied in domestic service. Sales clerks and other clerks em ployed rn sto2es and other mercan tile establishments. The following conditions are to be recognized by the beard as legitimate excuses, the board using common sense and judgment in all cases: Sickness. Reasonable vacation. Lack of reasonable opportunity for employment outside of occupations above enumerated. Temporary absence from regular employment not to exceed one week, unless such absence is habitual and frequent. Compelling domestic circumstances that would not permit change of em ployment without disproportionate hardship to dependants of registrant, or where change from non-productive to productive occupation would ne cessitate removal from place of resi dence.

To the Editor of the Tribune. A glance at a map cf the lowland region of Southeast Missouri will I make plain to anyone that the north ern part is a region bounded on the north by the Qzark Hills, on the east by the Mississippi River, on the south by the Cat railroad from Cairo to Poplar Bluff, and on the west by the Ozavks. A further examination of this re- j gion will show that Cape Girardeau is situated at the northeristm cnr. i ner of this region, Cairo at the southeastern corner of it, Poplar, BluHf at the southwestern corner of it, and Dexter, Sikeston and Charles ton on the southern border of it. Ti-.is irregular shapsi region is about 40 miles f 10:11 north f sniiih ! 1 1 e i j. and () miles fiom oast to west. It contains an area of approximately 200 square miles and includes some of the richest farming land to be found anywhere on the globe.
