In reply to tho reporter's question whether
nil rteKtM lmil to lmvo morn room, nnd what
would Ixi.'omo of tho huiidsomo Uurllngton
depot, tho railway nmgimto wild:
"There Isn't n deiwt In tho city Hint enn

"To what use will tho present depots bo

"Tho Ilurllngtou ollloors on the second nnd

tiro building will bo turned Into otllces, nud
tho other depots will bo iiied ns freight,
Tho location has already liaan secured, nnd
the now deot will bo built ns soon ns thu
rnrious details can lie nrrnuged, near tho

tolccntolt more definitely, bctwi-cu that
polntnnd tho lliiillngton. As to tho building
itself, tlio plans, etc., nothing can et bo Mild
but It is glory enough for ono day to know
that a union depot will bo built, nnd that it
will Ih) a structure, imposing nml hnndsomo
enough to grnco nny motroiwlltnn center.
Omaha has been nunouuclng periodically for
tho Inst ten years that their now union depot
would bo built ntonco, "but tho depot tlmt
they looked for novor enmo." Maybe, Oma
ha would not feel n llttlo sore if Lincoln's new
union depot would bo n reality beforo their
long-talked of nnd long promised structure.
Hueh, however, seems to bo tho fact nnd tlio
Couiiir.il congratulate! tho elttzous of Lin

A NARrtOW ESCAPE.
Nyo llrrently Umplriwl Onino list
A short tlmo ngo I was called tqion by
rommltteo of phyilcmns and surgeons of
Mlnnenxtls, led by Dr. Hunter of thnt city,
with n request that I would uinplro n gnmo
of base ball to bo played on tho ensuing day
between tho Allopaths nnd IIomiDopaths ot
Minneapolis for tho championship of thu
northwest, tho proceeds to go to tho llonnuo
I told Dr. Hunter that ntinllwlso provl
donco had not seen (It to endow mo with n
grent deal of baseball wisdom, but that I
was passionately fond of tho game, rocognls
lug, as 1 did, that it denoted a woiidorful do
greoof progress nnd u gradual loading up
from beau bag and two-old-cnt townrds tho
earnestness, tho throb nud thrill nud such
things in thnt of tho trim nthlota.
Dr. Hunter vald I had tho right Idea of tho
gnmo, ho thought, nud ho would get Mr.
Coiikllu, of tho Grand Opera houso, to do
tho active (xirt of tho umpiring, leaving mo
mostly to sit under tho shiulo of n largo sun
umbrella, outsldo tho oiblt of hot bulls nnd
engaged In thought Ho said that n groat
many (icoplo had noticed In mo tho faculty
of being uhlo to nsHiuuo n Ihlnkful nlr whiio
really engaged In something else. Ho said
people llko 1 that in anybody, nnd especially
in an utiplru.
At'JiIlO tho rival clubs nnived In separata
nmbuluuccj mid chuso up for "ins." Tho Al
lopaths got the bat,
Each club had n separate pall out of which
they drunk when In need of anything in thnt
Una Tlio Hoimrinpnths took theirs nt a
third dilution every twenty minutes out of n
"graduate," nud tho Allopaths drank out of
n largo tin dlpior until rolluvcd.
1 presume tho different players would not
cm o to havo mu uso their names hero and to
I will substitute fictitious names.
Tho Allopaths wuro u uniform consisting of
different kinds of clothes, but very becoming
Indeed. A fuw bnsoball uniforms scattered
through tho two clubs gavo llfo nud pi
quancy to thu gauio nud mado It morn illfll
cult fur tho uinplro to tell which sido wns in.
Dr. Gray wore drab small clothes, n light
high lint with wido, black band and lung,
nshes of roses mohair duster, hold lu pl.ua by
means of a string.
Dr. Wltidymclcr woro n bluo flannol sail
or's suit, with inllnmcd rovers of samo.
Dr. Peudergnst won) a low neck nud short
slcovo knit lingerie, with checkered panta
loons nud u wnil of till o ut tho throat. Ho
woro n tarpaulin hat nnd no ornaments.
Dr. Illeeker woro n jmlr of nil wool trou
sers, with wedge of shrimp pink satin sot in
tho back between his suspender buttons;
white, oion back shirt, Dili stripo suspenders
nud Alplno lint.
Dr. Early woron stroot costutno, with fire
man's hat and varioloid necktie.
Dr. Pangliorn woro n Priuco Albert coat,
knickerbockers nnd foro and nf t steamer hat
of small bluo and white plaid, with squirrel
skin car tabs tied roguishly over tho top. Ho
woro no ornaments ut tho beginning of tho
gamo, but at tho third inning appeared in a
stellated, comminuted contusion Just cast ot
tho parotid gland.
Dr. Pcmbcrthy worn n tenuis suit with silk
hat and crocheted slIpiKrs. Ho mado n very
duo iippoaranco ou tho beautiful green ball
ground, but generally ioiislied lioforo he
reached second. In batting Dr. Pcmbcrthy
almost nlwuys stnick at tho ball nftcr tho
catcher had It In his pocket, nud ho always
errod In diagnosing tho general direction of
tho ball, nnd his treatment of it was vision
ury and theoretical lu tho extreme. I had to
reprimand him three tlmo for these things
Tho gnmo was called nt 3 o'clock', nud with
two largo shingles to keep tally on, 1 told tho
boys to sail lu.
Dr. Mills, of tho Allopaths, went first to
bat Ho was dressed simply in u suit of bluo
llanncl, with richly leaded moccasins and
high crowned stiff black shiny straw hat. Ho
spat ou both hands, then caught up a quart
of sand, which ho applied to tho handlo of tho
bat, breathed lu nil tbo nlr between himself
and tho center fielder, asked for nu abdom
inal ball, and Got so near what ho requested
that it was somo tlmo beforo I could signal
Mr. Ccnklin to go on with tlio gamo. IIo
was given his baso ou balls, I bcllovo, nud
mado a homo run iu tho ambulance When
ho got lu ho tallied and took n bismuth kw
dcr that w ould havo settled tbo stomach of a
wholo livery stable
Dr. Dixon then camo to tho bat. IIo was
dressed in a morning costumo of brown chov
lot with maroon fnlllo fraucaUa slcovo llnlngi
which had crocked his Unci: in places, bt,t
did not hurt tho general effect. Ho woro no
ornaments aside from a society emblem ot
solid gold attached to his watch chain which
weighed two or three pounds. Ho nskod for
n clavlclo ball, which ho missed by n right
sniait, Tho pitcher prescribed another cap
sulo for him, which ho struck at Just u few
moments beforo it got to him, and with such
forcons to whirl him around on tho homo
plato with great vlolcnco. Assoonas ho had
recovered from his giddiness nnd vertigo
-died time again, and this tlmo ho swatted
tho lull so h.gb tint it was u glonoai chattel
for tho center Holder to get under it, ns it
was n long tuno in tho nlr mid camo down as
straight nu n shot, but tho rvutcr fielder was
Just lilting n new topicr to hu stethoscope,
which ho had lost out ou his way to tho
grounds, and so muffed it, rs wo would say.
Tho general error mado by physiclauj iu
playing this gamo I llnd, iu both schools,
is not so much a lack of proper
l.nowiedgo of Its histology, physiol
ogy, inleroscjphy, chemistry, pjthol
ogy, physiological tuodicine, pharmacy or
thcrajK-'Utles, for nil schools teem to treat a
hot ball in about tho iamo manner, favoring
in inoit cases n conservative courbo until tho
tcmjieratniv of tho ball is leduced, but tho
common error scorns to bo tho same ns that
