candidate had given up the ghost
and retired from the race, John
Kiaer, a lusty and vigorous disciple
of the "calamity howlerB." walked
into "Hilly" Weber's aalooon and in
thunder tone9 proclaimed that he
had sundry and divers dollars iu
his pockets to wager that Joseph
Edgerton would be the next
supreme judge. No notice was
taken of this bold "deli," for no one
supposed that Kiser meant it, but
he did, and vociferously proclaimed
it again and again, until, to prevent
his place being pulled for dis
orderly conduct, Weber was com-
pelled to take ten dollars' worth of
the bet. After a great and unseemly
wrangle, C. H. Vallery was made
stakeholder, and the parties abided
the judgment of the people. Of
course, you all know how it came
out. Kdgerton wasn't in it; he
never knew he was running. Hon.
A. M. Post abolished his candi
dature in short order. Hut after
the election Kiser became a
changed mm. He no longer
desiied to deposit funds on Mr.
Edgerton's clectioti, but on the con
trary, he notified Mr. Vallery that
the money must not be paid over to
Weber. After repeated demands,
Weber sued for the amount. The
case was set for trial to-day, but,
owing to other business, the court
was forced to continue it indefi
nitely. Byron Clark and Charley

await "den. for Bering sea.

A SURE THING.
Plattsmouth Will Play Ball
League Club a Winner,
The local base ball management
has been on the rustle for sometime
and has finally received encourage
ment enough to warrant them in
declaring that Plattsmouth will
have base ball and good ball, too.
T. M. Patterson has had the entire
control of the club in his hands for
some time, and to his efforts can
this city lay its success. He has
already signed eight players and
has several more iu view. The
players so far signed are Maupin,
catcher of last year's Lincoln Giants
and Plattsmouth clubs; Reeves, a
crack colored pitcher of KanHBB
City; George Yapp, our crack
pitcher of last year; Gibson, first
baseman, of Fairfield, Iowa; Mc
Kibben, second baseman of last
season's Hastings team; Porter, of
the Pueblo, Colorado, team, third
base; Clark, of Carroll, Iowa, short
stop, and Bradford, of the Omaha
Nonpareils, fielder. It is possible,
however, that Bradford may not
play here. He has been dickering
with Beatrice, and they claim him.
Patterson still hopes to keep him.
The team compares favorably with
unyjin the league and, no doubt, will
be "in it" from the start. In fact, if
our enthusiasm gets worked up, we
will soon be ready to claim the
Hastings has finally determined
to enter the league and Kearney is
said to be getting in trim for a

center of which protruded the point of
a needle. She easily drew the needle

that has been the cause of all my ill

Mr. Stifjer was seen at his oflieo yes
