For three innings the Hawkcye lads
had evertything their own way with
two fat scores to the good and their
rabbits foot working by the improved
method. Rut their dream was of short
duration. The Sox were quietly called
to one side by Pa, who sometimes says
things not for the ladies, and from this
time on their was nothing to it. The
Red Oak boy had given the Sox three
juicy eggs ami were preparing the
foul i h win n suddenly it was drop
ped and the goo ran all over the tlia
mtind. All that was needed was some
one to break the shell ami after Mann
had worked his way to second Kelly
obligingly humped the sphere for a
Texas leaguer and the first of the run
getting was over. After this the
boys sat up and took norishinent
without being teased ami before the
end of the eighth they had accumulated
the large sized sum of 8 scores by timely
hitting and fast base running. In their
field work they had the visitors skinned
a mile, and their exhibition with the
wagon tongue gave Ilulfish the better
of the argument so far as the slab ar
tists were concerned. In the seventh
inning when the Sex were at bat with
a man on first a decision of the umpire
was questioned and for a while it
looked bad to Ma. The decision in
question was properly given. It was
a case of ground rules, w hich allowed
but one base on an overthrow to first
base. McCauley was the runner on
first, Mason hit to third who ovrethrew
at first and the ball went to the woods.
McCauley had a good lead toward
second, when the ball was batted, waa
entitled to third through the overthrow
but having time to reach home he made
for the plate. Ry this time the ball had
been recovered by the first baseman
who threw to home to catch runner at
the plate, a,nd during this commotion
Mason had gone around to third. The
umpire refused to recognize the score
but ordered the men back to third
and second respectively from the fact
that after the ball passed over the first
base it was an over t'jrow or dead ball

and before the game could proceed
farther the ball had to again legally
be put "in play" and which can only
be done through , the pitcher in his
box, hence the decision was strictly
according to ground rules, and which
was afterward conceded by the play
ers. Another decisitn at first when Rard
weell was caught by a rod but whom
the umps called safe, was looked upon
by some few rooters who have yet sonic
things to learn about the great na
tional game, as a rank decision. Had
the ball been legally thrown to catch
the runner Rardwell would have been
out by four feet but Kelley deliber
ately balked, which not only made
Rardwell exempt from being put out
but allowed him to advance a base,
the latter fact not being taken advan

The Lincoln Stars composed of an
aggregation of ball players that play
ball all the time, were here yesterday
foT their second game, having been
shut out a week ago by a score of 1 to

harpoon wounds were still smarting
in their flesh.
They went in to win from the jump
but the Sox were there stronger than
Mistah Johnsing, and like Jeff, it was
a case of "couldn't come ba"ck" and
were beaten in one of the fastest games
ever seen on the home grounds.
The game opened before a throng of
people such . as has never before been
witnessed at the Chicago avenue park,
and every one there was chuck full of
base ball to the brim. The day was
hot, just the kind of weather for fast
work, and aside from one or two Rip
van Winkle stunts the article of ball
put up was of the league Variety.

Space will not permit a detailed
story of the game as we would wish

by a score of 2 to 1 when after some
gootl stick work and base running
the Sox managed to tie' the score.
Then in the fifth inning tl e Stars came

career Dick Merriwell never ha a
look in for the candy. It was the
prettiest line drive for three sacks
that ever came down the line ami Pete
took the long chance of stretching it
to home, which he did, and was safe
because the throw to home was w idc
and was muffed just enough to make
sailing easy for the onrushing Peter
the Great. This was the score that
tied the game and Larson was the next
man up. He planted one in the same
garden for two bases and like Pete
took the long chance of going to
third. The throw from left field to
catch him' at the sack went wild and
Larson scored. Of course tie Stars
claimed the loss of the game due to
hard luck, and that Pete's terrific
drive was a chance hit. Perhaps it's
true but a home run by the Stars
was swatted out when two men were
on bases, netting them 3 runs, which
might also be called a "chance hit."
Then the Sox had the game cinched
when Droege went to sleep at second
so taking the game on the whole the
Sox have it on the Stars by just enough
margin to be their betters.

SPEED OF SCORCHERS
MUST BE REGULATED
Mayor Insists That State Law ol
Eight Miles Per Hour
Must be Observed.
Numerous complaints have been
circulated and have reached the ears
of the city executive of late, of the
violation of a state law which has been
going on every day of the week. The
law in question is that regulating the
speed of autoists io eight miles an hour
within the limits of the city. There
urc but few machines in town that do
not tear it off at a minimum of twenty
miles, every time tl ey aro on the
street. Teamsters and drivers in the
business section have noticed a
number of cases of reckless driving
in the past ten days by persons wish
ing to catch a train out of the Rur
lington depot. With this sole object
in view, they open their throttle and
scorch down Main street as though
the existence of a nation was at stake.
S i far no serious accident has marred
the practice, but there is no telling
when a rig or machine will attempt t'
cross the path of a speeder and the rc
biilt will be a repe tition of the I'nion
or Omaha accident.
The niaily accidents of late itl the
motor world is stirring up the people
in one accord against such excessive
speed at the peril of life and limb
and legislation is being made in sev
eral states against it. As one citi
zen remarked, "The place ftr the go
devil scorchees is on the track,
where they can take their own life
ii their hands without endangering
persons who care to steer shy of them."
As a warning to chaeffcurs, Mayor
oattler has issued a notice that from
July, 1 no automobile shall be allowed
to run on ihc streets at a sliced
greater than eight miles per hour,the
maximum provided by the state law.
The police have been instructed
to arrest any one seen violacing
the law, unci although it may be
a difficult one to enforce, the practice
of reckless driving must be stopped
says the mayor. In many places in the
east, the authorities shoot into a
man's tires if he does not comply
to his demands to stop. It is not
thought t.nit such a step will be hard
ly neeessafry in Plattsmouth but the
police will take to tire popping lis
a last resort.
