carried it ever since. Being1 an old
man he turned it over to his son.
Any one being bitten by a mad dog

free of charge by calling upon Mr.
Young at hi home.
The secretary has had more calls

About as groggy- a game of ball
as was ever witnessed on the home
grounds was played yesterday at
tlie ball park. 1 he home team
seemed to be afflicted with the blind
stagger or the hippo or some
other disease. 1 hey tumbled and
tore through nine innings of al
legeu oaii in a manner to make one
ill at ease and cause troubled slum
bers to haunt their downy couch.
George Yapp had an off day as ;
piicner yesterday ana was very-
wild, but as a catcher he put up a
very fair game.
Creighton started into catch for
the home team but was struck on
the arm by a foul tip and forced to
reure. lie win be all right in
Sam Patterson pitched for the
locals and was batted with far
reaching and disastrous effect. In
auumon to tins nis support was
like an egg in its overripe stage
Jam Hit the ball though; he got
three hits off Miller.
Stephenson at third evidently
thought he had been put there for
an ornament merely, as he put up
a game distinguished for its rotten
ness. Bert Dunn and jack Schulhoff
were about the only players on the
local side of the score sheet that
didn't have a big bundle of errors.
For the visitors Miller and
Mauphin were the battery and
they gave by far the best exhibi
tion of battery work seen here this
year. Miller pitched a fine game
throughout. The locals found him
for six hits but they were too scat
tered to net any runs. Mauphin
caught him in elegant style.
"Whitey" Miller and Sam Patterson
were not in it in stealing bases off
him. He threw down to second
with deadly aim. The remainder
of the Giants put up a fine game.
The attendance was about 7.1.

A pleasant social gathering took
place at the residence of Mr. C. E.
Wescott last evening, and doubtless
will be remembered by all present
as one ot the most enjoyable and
profitable social events of the sea
son. Refreshments were served
and amusements of an elevating
and edifying nature indulged in, as
can be appreciated, properly, by
those only who are accustomed to
the hospitable and social tenden

SAD NEWS FROM OMAHA
William Parker Fatally Hurt by
Mr. Samuel Parker, of this city-
received the sad intelligence, last
evening, that his son. who has been
employ ed on the l P. road at Oma
ha had met with an accident that, in
all probility, will cost him his lift
As the train was passing the
station, making a speed of about
twenty miles an hour, Mr. Parker
attempted to alight but in so doing
struck the platform with suc h force
that, in an instant he was rolled in
a ball and hurled with gn at vio
lence to the platform and severly
crushed and mutilated. It was
ascertained that his right leg had
been crushed into a pulp from the
knee down, his head badly cut, and
skull fractured. In addition to
this his right shoulder was badly-
crushed and his back injured. It
would be no surprise to hear of his
death at any time.
Mr. Samuel Parker, father of the
unfortunate man, left for the scene
on No. 5 this morning.
LATER - Since the above was set
up in type a telegram has been re
ceived announcing the death of Mr.
Parker. The funeral will take
place at the M. E. church to-morrow
at 3 o'clock.

Juite an exciting case was tried
before Judge Archer last evening
in which Mr. Buck Neely, a black
smith, was tried on the charge of
whipping one Paul Sitzman. De
velopments proved that Neel3-,
using a buggy whip as a weapon
and whippedjthe boy quite severely,
making marks across his legs and
abdomen. Mr. Neely admitted
having whipped the boy, but
claimed provocation, inasmuch as
the boy insulted his wife in a very
unbecoming and disgraceful man
ner. Justice Archer thought that
the deed was unjustifiable and fixed
the fine at $o and costs.
While the boy, doubtless, de
serves severe reproof f,or having in
sulted Mrs. Neely, it does not lie in
the power of Mr. Neely, nor even
the law of our state, to punish by
chastisement. The parent should
be appealed to as the proper author
ity in such cases.
Fred Molitor, the hired man of
F. Kuffemberge, living seven miles
west of town, sustained a compound
fracture of the right leg below the
knee. The accident occurred about
