A GOOD PROSPECT.

ill have a club and, if our wea'th
ill only hold out, it will be a state
league club. After much figuring
ind many sleepless nights
our mathem itical editor has arrived
at the conclusion that about
x or eight hundred dollars is all
that is necessary to give us a tirst
grade team. He has further arrived
it conclusion that we are en
hu'ustic enough to cough up this
amount this year and go in and
knock the spots out of Kearney or
Heatrice or any other thriving and
ptogressive village mat may uod

club we have Miller. Perrine, the
'nttcrsons and John SchulhofT. If
that isn't nucleus enough we have
never seen one. Willi six hundred
dollars to start with, with a ball
park already in good trim and with
reasonable amount of confidence
there is no reason why we can't be
in it. The next step on the program
is for the president of the associa
tion to call a meeting of the stock
holders and set the ball rolling.

FREAK OF LOVERS.
They run Away From Weeping
Papa and Mamma and
How the Course of True Love Leads
Over Great Mountains of Diffi
culties. Reports reaches this city yester
day of a social event at Union
which is shaking that quiet village
to its center. It i the elopement of
two cousins named John W. A.
Bird of Indiana, and Miss Osta Bird
of that place, before the very eyes
of the girl's parents.
Young Bird has been on a visit
with his uncle. For some time the
young people have showed a
marked attachment forone another.
Yet this occasioned little comment,
for both are of highly respected
parents, their fathers being
brothers. Time has gone on and
the mutual love of the two young
peoyle has grown apace. The girl,
Miss Bird' however, was still young,
and the idea that any serious inten
tions ot marriage were entertained
by young Bird, never entered the
minds of her parents,
Yesterday the accumulating ava-
lancbe of love bore away the two
fond lovers with it. They could not
resist. They must become one just
it the soonest possible moment.
1'hey asked Papa and Mamma Bird,
but they refused, since they were
not of sufficient age. The disap
pointed lovers put their heads to
gether, and upon mature considera
tion jointly and severally, decided
to elope like people did in books
and newspapers. They started for
the depot. They had plenty of time
to catch the train and when they ar
rived there they sat down to chuckle
over the great "shake" they were
giving the old people. But while
they were sitting there in eerene
bliss, who should appear but the
ferocious parents. They had got
wind someway through a jealous
rival of Miss Bird it is thought
and hastened at once to the depot
to head off the forward children.
There worst fears were realized
There sat the consicnceless ones,
smirking sweetly, but with two
tickets stamped for Nebraska City.
It shocked the good old people; but
their courage returned as soon as
they recollect that these refractory
ones were the same creatures whom
they had spanked in former days
for lesser offences. They girded
themselves for the strife and aet
about to pursuade by threats, then
by tears and supplications their
children from their mad course.
But it availed not. The train came,
and from under the very tearful
noses of the parents they stepped
upon the train platform and were
spirited way in a trice.
They arrived at Nebraska City
yesterday and proceeded to get tne
necessary license, and go through
the perfunctory ceremony. It was
a lotof fun although; and they en
joyed themselves hughly all after
noon. But it was ticklish business
getting the license. Yet that was
finally procurred from Judge Katon,
nnd they were married at the
Central House by Justice White.
The couple then took the train lor
Delaware county Indiana where
the groom lives. There John has a
farm and they will live as happy
Boosters. Nebraska City I'rees.
Skipped by the Light of the Moon

employe of the B. & M. shops nnd

leaving several of out merchants

Judge Archer's court was oc -
cuoied this forenoon with a case
between The Continental Insurance
Company vs. Knoua ii. uarnes.
The suit was brought on a note for
$72, The defense was that the note
was a forgery and the evidence was
licit that ludire Archer trave the
ilefendant a verdict. The defend
ant is from Greenwood.
A ;t seems to be in order for
newspapers to suggest candidates
for the various political offices of
trust the Kcho would suggest the
name of Walter Cutforth, of Louis
ville, as one of the candidates for
the legislature. He is a staunch
republican, bears a sweeping in
fluence and always uses his talent
for tho betterment of any and all
causes. The republicans of Cass
county can well afford a careful con-
ideration of this proposition.
