And lo! there was a mility cit3'
within the confines of Hit otiiinlj' of
Cass and state of .Nebraska and
within that city there dwelt a race
of "Hoboes." And these "I loboes''
dil form of themselves a tribe and
thfj' did fiiihla.ou Ihemscl ves witli
the cognomen of tilt "Farmers' Al
liance," and thry did procure for
themselves a room and did during
the winter months pass their time
in said room in a state of torpor.
And tliey did really think them
selves some pumpkins.
And in the same -i 1 3- there dwelt
another tribe of "Hoodoos" who
called themselves "Hachelois," ami
they were always awake and they
did esteem themselves fit com
panions for Kinjs and I'rinces.
And the liiemhers of lioth of these
tribes were what is known in base
hall slang as "fans," and they all
did "hoot" loud and long for the
home cl uh.
And it came to pass that one day
10 if I icy, the One IC3 e, or Killer,
being a member of the trihe of
"I lol iocs," a ml feel i 11 g a t peace villi
all the world, did haiiter one Starch, ;

or iMarcli, or I arisen, as trie case
may he, to take their respective
tribes and hie them to the liasc hall
park and do battle. And Tartscli,
etc., did think it a great scheme and
he did accept said challenge at
once, and both tribes did j-estetday
collide with great violence at the
aforesaid base ball paik to the
everlasting damage and mortifica
tion of the tribe of '"I I oboes."
For lo! there was in the tribe of
"Hoodoos" a spellbinder by the
name of Cliiford, and he did weave
a spell over the tribe of "Hoboes"
ho 111.1t t heir eyes were as the eyes
of a dead dog sightless. And
they could see not the ball to hit it,
neither could they see it to catch it,
and they were buried amid the
lilacs, and buried so deep that the
trump of the angel Gabriel can
never awake them.
And for the "Uachelor Hoodoos"
White, Green, Reinhaekle, 3IcCarty
and Clifford did take the most de
light in scalping the unfortunate
"Hoboes," while "Hoboes" Murray,
Grimes, McC'03 , V'allery and Cole
ably assistetl them in the execution.
"Hoodoo" Green took great and
exceeding pleasure in fanning the
'"Hoboes" out, having in the neigh
borhood of eighteen strike outs.
"Hoodoo" Clifford performed a
marvelous stop of a grounder in
the fore part of the game which
woke applause in the grand stand
and bleachers. And at the bat he
was out of sight. His frequent
home runs and three baggers
caused the audience to roar with
enthusiasm. It was vaguely hinted
that Anson was after him. "Hobo''
Vallery made a great circus play
that established him in great favor
with the crowd. He stopped a hot
grounder and after turning around
six times threw the runner out at
first. The game aroused all the
latent energy in the spectators and
the applause was sharp and fre
quent. This is the unofficial score:

The digestive process is carried on Set

But it is not necessary to go to the ani
mal kingdom for this, and it is a fact
that vegetable oils are more easily di
gested than animal fats They do not
become rancid so easily Rancid fat is
exceeding- poisonous. Nuts furnish an
excellent natural oil and it is a mistake
to suppose that they are dillicult of di
gestion. The reason for the prevalent
idea that nuts are hard to digest is that
they are taken at improper hours and
are not thoroughly masticated, often
being swallowed in chunks. But if taken
with a bit of bread or hard cracker, the
firm, fleshy substance of the nut can be
so finely divided that it will not be re
tained unduly in the stomach, but will
pass along to the duodenum where, by
the action of the bile, the fatty sub
stances contained will be digested aal
fitted to be passed along further in the
alimentary tract.
Corn meal contains the largest per
centage of fats of any of the grains.
Peas, beans and lentils also contain
forms of vegetable oil and are very nu
tritious, wholesome foods. (Joing into
