nnd was real baseball. Korth Platte
scored one In tho third nnd ono In
tho sixth nnd It looked as though the
Fame was to bo a shut out for the
Hershoy boys. In tho seventh inning
tho balooii went up when Bockor hit
a single to loft. The next man up
whiffed nd tho next ono filed out

the same amount, loavlng the score
G to 4. The gnmo then settled down
ngaln to a real game and thero wore
no more scores mado until tho ninth
when tho visitors pushed ono ovor
and got a man on third. However,
there were two out nnd tho next

tho score G to 5.
This waa the first gamo the Hersh

raised tho opinion of tho local .man
for their baseball ability. All the
men hit strong nnd they do some
good fielding. There wore only two
errors In tho gnmo and thoy were both
by the visitors.
North Platto secured 10 hits off
Bcchan nnd the visitors secured nine
off McClure. McCluro hit two men
nnd sruck out nine and Bechan
