The sociable giyen at the residence

as it is accustomed to. It stated that
Henry Cooper had been receiving $8 per I

the goyernment had raised the pension I
to $12. The statement was a false one I
as he only recciyed $4 previous to the I
advance made bv 2 which only makes
him $6. Probably the editor of that pa
per was looking forward to the time
when Harrison and Morton will be elect
ed, knowing that he would be treated
right by that government.

Mr. Inhelder, ot Cedar Creek, was
in the city yasterday, and informed us of
the burglary which occurred at that place
yesterday morning, between the hours of
three and four o'clock. Two men broke
in the general store belonging to Mr.
Geo. E. Sayles, one of them entering
through the transom over the front door
and admitting the other tellow by un
baring the door from the inside. Sirs.
Sayles heard the man drop the bar and
informed her husband that some one was
in the store. He secured a shot gun and
started down stairs to the store, but a?
they heard him coining they took to their
heels and ned
He fired several shots
after them and it is not known whether
he hit them or not. Mr. Inhelder, who
lives a short distance away, heard the
shooting and put in appearance just as
one of the men was making his escape,
and he savs if he had been armed the
man never would haye got away. Mr..
Sayles followed the burglars from the
store, and as he fired after them when
tney wcre running they returned the tire.
As they succeeded in reaching the woods
their pursuers gave them up for the time.
In an article which appeared in the

should pursue to secure his boy. Mr.

city drove out to the residence of Mr.

six miles southwest of the city, and en
joyed a very pleasant time, dancing un

James Windham, son of R. B. Wind
ham, met with a very painful accident
this morning. While playing on the
stairs in the house he fell clown several
steps, causing lmu to bite his tongue, al
most severing it. Dr. T. P. Livingston
was summoned as so n as possible, who
stitched the wound so that it is thought
he will entirely recover from the injury.
The child is nine years of age.
The eclipse which was advertised by
the papers to take place last Saturday
night was postponed until last night for
the benefitjof the young people. All the fel
lows and their girls watched and admir

ef the postponement the previous night
and watched the moon in its course until
:t disappeared. The eclipse was first
noticeable about 'J:i0 and made a coin
plete job about 1 1 o'clock.
This afternoon a party of young
people drove out to a grove on Mr. Jake

Miss Lelia Thomas entertained a
number of her friends at the residence of
Mr. A. B. Todd last Saturday night. A
very pleasant time was had. The beau

favorable resort. Singing and different
amusements were indulged in after a
bountiful supply pf refreshments had
been served. The principal feature of

We noticed a large crowd in pursuit

secured cigars before taking their depar
ture. Upon inquiry of Mr. Donnelly, he
refused to give any information but
treated us in tne ae way by handing
over a cigar. It was learned afterward
that the generosity on his part was oc

The postmaster of La Platte arrived
in the city this morning- in pursuit of a
young man, stating that he had broken
into the postoffiec at that place and robb
ed the office of about $21 in money and
the value of about as much in five and
ten fent stanipg. After ftn investigation
of the city he secured the young man he
had been pursuing and indulged in quite
a lengthy conversation with him. He
gave the fellow to understand that it was
his intention to haye him arrested, and
instead of holding him himself and send
ing some one in search of an officer, he
left the man to take care of himself and
started out to look up an efficer, The

was not certain that the man was the
guilty party, but the man apparently did
not wish a trial n the matter and skip

police are not to be found, and the pur

The Creat Ball Came
As large, if not a larger crowd than
has been seen upon the bull ground, wit
nessed the great game of ball yesterday
between the fats and leans. Considera
ble money changed hands not less than
$."00 and the betters were putting up
their money on the tat players with great
confidence. Since a druggist was the
instigator of the game, we believe it was
done as a business scheme, for today the
players are purchasing arnica, St. Jacobs
Gil, Wi.zard Oil and all chemicals used
as remedies for cripples, and have been,
a good part of the da', rubbing them
selves down. The batteries for the teams
an; retired for the day and leaving their
business in charge of others. The lean
men went to bat first and they succeeded
in making a score which is seldom reach
by other clubs in nine innings. With
that start and encouragement they took
the field and held the fat men down to
ten runs. After the first inning the fat
men held the opposition score down and
worked their own score up to about a ti
at the last two or three innings. Consid
erable excitement was the result of tlu
seventh iuning when a fly was knocked
into the field and caught by Mr. Riddle
of the lean nine which decided the game
in their favor. He froze to the ball, and
squeezed it with what strength he stil!
possessed for fear it might leave him i'j
some way. At first he supposed, judg
ing from the disappointed expresHoii
that overcame his face, that he had
missed it. Another expert, one of the fat
players by the name of Wm. Neville,
stole several bases in grand style. Onci
when he made a base hit and was run
ning to first, the large straw hat whicl
he had on was caught by the wind and
blown off. He made for first base, but
not being satisfied to tr .vel around tin
diamond without a hat, started after ii
and had it not been for his contort! ve
base stealing he would surely have been
put out. Mr. .lames Patterson, win;
played right field for the fats, caught a
fly which surprised himself and everyone
else. Aboijt seven of the lean fellows
then took charge ot hun and carried him
to the home plate, affording considerable
amusement for the spectators. Mr.
Weber, of the fat nine, became disabled
in the second or third inning and his po
sition in center field was filled by C. W.
Sherman of the Journal, who did som
excellent batting for the heavy nine.
The principal feature of the the game
was the heavy batting on both sides.
Several of the lean men were caught
sleeping near some the bases they sup
posed they were standing on and put out.
Although the fats were defeated by one
run, they feci as confident in themselves
as ever and are willing although they are
all sore today, to play another game
whenever their opponents will appear on
the field. Some of the men in that club
say they are willing to raise $100 for the
next game on the victory for their side.
We believe the lean players are afraid to
try another game, as the7 consider their
victory only came about by chance.
The following is the score and the
number of runs made by innings by each
player. There is nothing small about

Wi: regret that we overlooked the vol
uble democratic stump speech of J. A.
Bruso in Saturday evening's .lion'f a3
we would not have that gentlemen think
we had not perused it with amusement
and curiosity. Does it not occur to Mr.
Bruso that he has mi-taken liio impor
tance in the matter of our rep!' to tho
Journal editorial on the famous cat toon J
It would seem that Mr. Bruso is entirely
too sensitive for a political cartoonist
and that his democracy is entirely too
much like the watermelon he mentions
"ready to open and work."' The IIi.lt l li
will not lie small about the matter; wo
are willing to concede thai tne cai'iocn.
as a work of "high art" is a rare picturp
and that its author ij. capable of greafc
things in that line and hope this admis
sion will heal any wounds that may have
been opened by our reply to Bro. Slier
man's editorial mention of the picture.
We are pleased however, to see that Mr,
Bruso takes a bold stand against free
trade, but we are afraid he is in a minor
ity in "that great am. g'.'ar.d a. ... -y
democrats" which ha. been o:i ever
side of every question before the Ameri
can people for a quarter of a century,
and which is now trying the double
horse back feat, on the tariff question.
Neither do we see any use in Mr. Bruso
stopping at "some of the raw materials,''
which he is going to pt on c'l.e. je
to help out the consumer, and think ho
is unfortunate as a "revenue reform" ad
vocate in his caitoon, i:i .selecting
article which he confesses he does not
know whether his party has helped him
on or not. As leather has been on a low
duty schedule always and as the duty
was no higher on an average in SJS than
it was in '42 and '."iT to those "grand
democratic" re-form periods when ":i"e;
were cheaper a.id necessaries of lite dc.nc
than they are today, i.vnt the cartoon a

foreign labor question we can have no
controversy with our arti: t, the republi

petition, ihe democratic parly would pull
his wages down to a level with it !S;ihgio

Mr. Bruso' political prejudices close h?
eyes to the danger he mentions. Finally
a.i the brick masons wages are directly
in point on the wage question and tho
cartoon is not, we adhere to our criticiun
of editor Sherman's mention of the great
picture and if Mr. Bruso is to persist In
his artistic flights we are sorry he ao?
clines to wrk on something practical
and to the point. Eyn if it be the

We arc pointed by the Journal to
those good old days when the Hies were
blowing old Jimmy Buchanan Mhilc the
solid south democracy was robbing tho
government under his nose: when wage
were on the pauper scale, and necessaries
of life were beyond the reach of working
men, as compared with these days of high
tariff, and are urged to consider that
period of democratic rule as an argument
why we should resort to the folly of '."7
and strike down the protective policy of
this rich, happy, prosperous nation. By
all means let everybody look back as the
Journal suggests; its a mighty good
idea if there is any danger of the country
