TROUBLE ON THE RAPIDS
Rafter Ben Hershey Ties Up to Await
.a Rise in the River- liars
Practically all of the boats which
are now navigating the Mississippi
river are finding difficulty in making
good headway, and low speed is the
order, whether they are running in day
light or nighttime. Although the chan
nel of the river is deep enough to per
mit any boat to travel, yet it is hidden
and is not more than 100 feet wide.
The pilots are unable to keep in it and
as soon as the boats, veer a little to
one side or the other, difficulty is ex
perienced. Two" weeks ago the J. S.
was lodged on a sandbar at Keiths
burg for four hours before it could be
extricated. All of the boats have been
stuck for a few minutes at some place
in the river. k
The rapids near LeClalre are causing
much trouble, although no accidents
have yet occurred. The pilots' are be
ing as careful as possible, and although
some trouble will be experienced, no
serious difficulty is anticipated. The
stage of .the river at present is two
feet above low water mark and the
prospects for a rise in the next two
weeks are very poor.
Shortage in Rainfall.
The soil in the north is very dry,
there having been a shortage in rain
fall. Any rain which does come will
be absorbed by the earth and will not
reach the river.
The raft boat Ben Hershey is in port
and will tie up until the water in the
upper river is higher. It Is impossible
to take the rafts out at present.
The steamer. Sidney of the Diamond
Jo line has not had any difficulty yet,
although it has been stuck on sand
bars a few times. The St. Paul will
not enter the trade at the time sched
uled, the initial trip having been de
layed nine days. Instead of leaving
St. Louis on June 30, it will leave July
9 and will arrive here July 11.

SIR GENILLE CA VE-I5ROWXE CA VE, WHO SEEKS A RICH WIFE. DIS
PLAYING SKILL WITH LASSO.
Is there any A merlon a maid, spin
ster, widow (all over seventy provi
sionally barred, likewise divorcees)
who would like to marry iuto the fifth
oldest family in England, pay off a
stack of perfectly good mortgages on
ancestral halls, etc.. and be known io
court as "my lady?" This is not a
frivolous question, but meant in all
seriousness. Sir Genille Cave-Rrowue-Cave.
eleventh baronet of that
name, Is New York looking for a
wife with money.
Sir Genille has been known pretty
widely In this country as tbe "cowboy
baronet." although he did not come
Into his title until three years ago.
when his father died. At the time the
paternal baronet died his son and heir
was punching cows In Colorado. Ha
had been a ranchman in this country
since 1SS0. and what he didn't know
about cattle and roughing it on the
frontier was known to few sturdy six
footers who walked in chaps and Mex
But Cowboy Cave-Browne-Cave never
plotted matrlmouy. He preferred shoot
ing up ranch towns and mining camps
or tracking a horse thief. . He was
built for the strenuous ways of man
and did. not hanker the tiniest hank
for domestic desuetude.
"Kid Cave" Transformed.
Now all that is changed. Returning
to England In 1907 and finding him
self a baronet and the head of a bouse
of the(very oldest British vintage, it
was necessary for "Kid Cave." erst
while of the Half Circle B ranch, to
brush up his manners and act party.
His mother, the dowager Lady Cave-Browne-Cave,
introduced her strenuous
son to all the ladies and lords, as none,
not even tbe most terrifically titled
dukes, has anything on the Cave-Browne-Caves
in the way of antiquity.
The Cave-Browne-Caves have been he
reditary knights since IOCS.' which Is
some time ago.
ne dfdn't advertise for a wife In
Enghmd. as he didn't believe there
were any Englishwomen who had
money enough and at the same time
were anxious to wed a partly Ameri
can baronet that is. American in style.
Moreover, he didn't like the looks of
the few slluj English ladles who were
pointed cut to him. -
"Not that I. really give a hang for
looks in this matter." said Sir Genille
in discussing it. "She; may look as
she pleases, hang it all. if she's got
the tin. and so long as the tin is guar
anteed I'll bar none in petticoats un

"There's no use beating around the
bush." said the big ex-cowboy, "and
making cross cuts. I'm looking for a
wife," and the sooner all the women in
America with money know It the bet
ter I'll feci about it.
"I'm big and brawny and clean and
healthy as nil -outdoors. I've got a
top notch title with all the trimmings,
and before the lady ueed take a step
in the mutter sho can consult' my at.
torneys In Londou.
"Our coat of arms Is one of the best
in England, and Stretton Hall. Leices
tershire, Is u fine, big place if one had
the tin to run it. There are collieries
on the place that are mortgaged for
about 40.000. That's a rather good
bit of brass, but it's a flivver to tbe
mortgage on Stretton nail. My idea
Is to wipe the mortgage off tbe col
lieries first, and then we can live a bit
in a small place until we're ready to
take the hall out of pawn."
Sir Genille would prefer a western
girl or a widow, as he rather tikes
"Buf." he added. "I don't think they
will have money enough. Most of
those western girls that get money
move east. That's why I've started in
on my campaign here. My address Is
No. 221 Johnson avenue. Richmond
Hill. N. Y.. and all the ladles who are
interested in this little proposition of
mine may address me there."

now on to bringing about the election
of legislators who would favor woman

rap at Representative Dillon of Ga

"I do not know," said Mrs. McCul
