Coy's JsidiinS Contest A Success.
The Stock Judging Contest for
Cape County Boys was held at
the Fair on Thursday. The pre
liminary scoring and instructions
were given on Wednesday.
Prof. Babcock of the Normal,
was there with part of his class
in Agriculture.
Twenty boys, eager to learn
and compete for the prizes, came
in the rain from different parts
of the county to be present at
9:30, the time set for the class
to meet. Some excellent speci
mens of the different types of
animals were on the grounds
and the owners kindly loaned
thorn for tne use of the boys.
Wednesday morning was given
to the scoring of horses, cattle
and hogs and at 2 o'clock the
boys met at the hog barn where
some extra work was given and
also the final instructions for the
contest proper.
Thursday was clear and bright
and at 10:00 the class met on
the grounds. A class of Berk
shire gilts were driven into the
show ring and the work began.
Each boy was given a sheet of
paper to record his placing of
the animals ard his reasons for
placing. All communication
with each other was forbidden
and twenty minutes was allowed
for each class of live stock.
Everyone meant business and
, took his own council ; there was
not a single violation of the
rules and some high-grade papers
were handed in.
A class of heavy draft mules
followed the hogs; after them
came a class of registered cows,
two Shorthorns and a Hereford.
The final class was composed of
a good draft mare and two pure
bred mares. The last class was
a difficult one, and as few of
the boys were very familiar with
draft horses there was more
diversity of opinion here than
in any other class.
At 1:00 o'clock the last paper
was handed in and the boys
despersed to enjoy the fair and
final results.
A noticeable feature was the
interest taken by older persons.
Many of them came to watch the
boys at work. They were not in
the way at all and were welcome,
for their presence proved that
the boys were not the only ones
The first prize of $15.00 was
won by Chas. Blottner, Jr., whose
score out of a possible 400 was
oo0; Cyrus Sides won second.
$10.00. with a score of 339;
Edwin Rasche won third, $5.00,
with a score of 335; Glenn Hens
ley, Albert Weiss, C. W. Green,
Joe Matthews and Bruce Baker
were 4th, 5th, Cth, 7th and 8th,
The Cape Girardeau County
Fair is the first fair in the state
to give a special r.tock judging
contest for the boys and it seems
that the results of the first con
test fully warrant the prediction
that it will be followed by others
and that each will be better than
the preceeding. .
Auto Accident Proves Fatal.
It was quite a shock when the
many friends of Rudolph Walth
er received the news over the
wires that he had died at the
Missouri Baptist Sanitarium at
St. Louis Friday night. He had
gone there to undergo an exami
nation with the Roentgen rays,
discovering a broken pelvic bone,
received from an auto accident
about three weeks ago. Great
hope was entertained by many
of his friends for a speedy re
covery, but Friday night he wa3
suddenly seized by convulsions,
caused from a small clot of blood
carried to the heart, resulting
in instant death.
Deceased was one of this city's
successful business men, going
into the furniture and under
taking business in 1S9G, and
continued with thi3 business
until death.
Funeral services were held at
the First Baptist church Tues
day afternoon at 2 o'clock, Rev.
Frank Y. Campbell officiating.
The funeral was in charge of
the Masonic order with a Knights
Templar escort and pall bearers.
The sons of Veterans, Knights
and Ladies of Security and East
ern Star, also acted as escorts to
the cemetery.
Mr. Walther is survived by
his wife and three children, two
sons, Bernieand Gussie, and one
daughter, Miss Bertha.

Preventive Medicine.
Typhoid Fever.
Typhoid fever is an infectious
disease caused by the typhoid
bacillus which, entering the
body in food stuff, passes through
the stomach into the intestines.
Here it grows and, when an
opjwrtunity presents itself, pas
ses through the intestinal wall
into the blood stream by which
it is carried to all pwts of the
body. In this way, the entire
body of the typhoid patient is
teeming with typhoid germs.
All of the excreta, such as saliva,
vomitus, urine, and feces con.
tain typhoid germs.
This infected excreta, in the
means for carrying the typhoid
germs from the patient to the
outside world. In the excreta
the typhoid germs live from a
few days to several montlis.
rreezing retards their growth.
but does not kill them. Sun
light kills the germ only when,
the germs are directly exposed
to the light. In the dried ex
creta, germs may live for from
one to two months. Owing to
the resistance of germs in ex
creta to cold and dryness, the
excreta becomes a menace to the
family of the patient, to the
neighbors, and to the commun
ity. Address questions on preven
tion of diseases to Preventive
