The first load of green corn Mas
brought to the canning factory this morn

to make the thermometer red-headed. It
reached about 100 in the- shade.

The came which was played Satur
day afternoon between the Clippers and
the first nine, ended in favor of the lat
ter by a score of 7 to 10. The first nine
pay the Clippers play well but they might
be a little better posted on the rules.
The Plattsmouth base ball club has
made arrangements with the Jetter &
Youngjclub of Oma'ia to play a game here
Saturday next. This club belongs to the
Omaha League and is said to be a firsc
team. Further narticulara will be
The fat and lean game which was to
hare been played tomorrow afternoon for
a supper, which was to be given at the
Kiddle house, and paid for by the los
ing club; has been postponed until the
latter part of the week, as all the players
could not be able to be present tomorrow,
"Wonder why the police did not en
forr the law last Saturday nisht and
"run in all the parties who were paint
ing the town. Several were heard upon
the streets between the hours of half-past
eleven and five in the morning making
irresistible discordant yelps. lYe believe
the law is a crood one. but what's the
matter with enforcing it?
Mr. W. J. Warrick has fitted UP a
window in the front of hi dm store,
which presents to the passer by a very
charming appearance. In a large box,
filled with rich Foil, are planted a fine lot
of fresh fcrus,and in the center is located
a large bowl, which contains about a half-
dozen red fish. The scene is a very pleas
ing one and looks very natural.
Messrs. James and Tom Patten-on,
the battery for the Plattsmouth base ball
team, who were engaged by theBalentine
and Atkinson teams last week, returned
borne last night. Friday they played with
the Balentine club against Chadron, but
owinsr to a dispute only seven innings
were played. They were to play with
Atkinson Saturday, but were objected to
by the opposing club as professionals.
Rev. A. Boswell. pastor of the col
ored people of this place lias been work
ing the city for the past few days with a
subscription paper. His object is to ob
tain enough money to afford them a
house or worship. At present they are
obliged to worship in open air or in pri
vate residences. So far he has succeeded
in securing the names or some of the
best citizens for good large sums and he
feels quite confident that he can secure
the desired amount. The church is to be
a small one and built in such a way that
at any time when necessity demands,
an addition can be built to the end. The
colored people of the city are all a peace
able class of people, and now that they
have formed a desire to worship their
Maker together, the priviledgc should
not be withel'l by the refusal of assist
ance by their white brethren who are able
The fever which has been spreading
rapidly in the city for some time has
reached those who sat in smiling authori
ty oyer the passers by, who have their
club room over the furniture store of J.
I. Unruh. No other cause is conspicuous
than that they merely play to fall in with
the style. The irresistible element has
shown itself in their case resulting in the
challenge of nine men to join with them
in holding down the diamond on the ball
field this afternoon. The tine who re
plied to their challenge are strikers and it
is thought that whatever curves the bach
elors may have originated will not sub
due, their powerful ball hammering.
They had not decided, before reaching
the grounds, what time the game 'should
stait. We suppose, had the bachelors
advertise! the game and their intention
of participating, that the young ladies of
the city would adhear to the call and
have turned out in a body, but ta it is
no notice has reached the publicVrevi-
ous to this and they cannot feel slighted
if their admirers do not pat in an apuear
' etce. -
The base ball club of Murray has
challenged the Clippers of this city to a
game of ball.
Mr. F. J. Bliss, of Cedar Itapids, la.,
has on exhibition in a room in the Sher-
boy 17 years of age and the younger
one 9. Their limbs from the Knees tome
... . y
feet have no resemblance to a human
limb and are jointed in about four or five
linWpnt nliires. Their hands arc also a
peculiar shape and they possess extra
ordinary strength. They are shaped
more like an animal's foot. They arc
1 ,i ith intelligent fellows and seem about
as happy as anybody. They give a per
formance in which they show considera
ble skill as acrobats, and although they
have little use of their limbs lower than
the knees, they throw themselves around
as lively as any circus actor.
John McClelland, a farmer who lives
idmiit four miles soath of Ashland, was
brought to the city this morning and ex
amined by Dr. Livingston, sr., before
Messrs. Beeson and Showalter, who were
annointed commissioners by the district
court. He was taken charge of by De
puty Sheriff Miller and two of his former
neighbors who brought him to the city
this morning. His friends stated that he
has been insane for more than a year,
and of late has become so crazy that he
has become unmanageable. At times he
would have spells in which he wished to
handle everything he would see, roughly.
and occasionally for a short time only he
would become ratiopal. He has been
sick for some time, but as be recovers
and his strength increases the more de
ranged he becomes. He is a married
man and has a famPy of about three
children. As Cue asylum is full at pres
ent it will not be known iit'ul word is
received from there whether he can be
accepted or not.
The prohibition law of Iowa must
have been declared off for a month judg
ing by the beer which is transferred to
Pacific Junction almost daily. Saturday
night another lot of kegs were seen
at the depot labeled for the above place,
and it U sttypesed the boys of that burg
had a genuine "blow onir It h shipped
to the web-feet and it'disappears iuko;ie
mysterious way, but when the citizens of
the tiatar state make known their inten
tion of crossing ho river and carry beer
with them, all the pretfcatic? people of
that land will haye arrangements ujade
to take possession of the;r "fire water"
and pit fjjem behind bars. A few days
ago a party of Iiavicmouth people had
made up their minds to ffend a dy on
the Iowa side and it had been reported
that they were to taka a supply of beer
with them. The Iowana were informed
in some way of their intention and all
preparations were made to catch the vis
itors. For some reason the trip was post
poned to an indefinite date.
The republican rajly, which took
place at Cedar Creek last Saturday night,
was reported by those attending from here
to have been a grand success in every
way. Sayles' hall was crowded to its ut
most capacity, not even standing room
could not be found. There was an atten
dance of about 200 people, and the meet
ing was enthused by the presence of
about one hundred ladies. The mem
bers of the little burg deserve the strong
est praise for such an exhibition of the in
terest taken in the welfare cf the country.
Politicians from the surrounding
country for a considerable distance put in
an appearance and a more enthusiastic
meeting in a place of jls size has not
been known. Before the nieeticg at the
hall a parade of about fifty people, head
ed by the Cedar Creek brass band,
marched up the street, those in the pro
cession carrying lanterns and transparen
cies. The hall was nicely decorated and
and streamers of Harrison and Morton
were hung upon the walls. The speakers
from here Mr. John A. Davies and
Judge Sullivan received loud rounds of
applause during their speaking. Mr.
John llamsey of that place, acted as
chairman and the first speaker he called
was Mr. Davies, who spoke in an able
manner on the tariff question and the
inconsistencies of democracy. Mr. Sulli
van, who also spoke on the tariff,
handled it in an able manner apparently
pleasing the audience by every utterance.
The meeting did not break up until after
To the officers and members of Cass
Camp No. 332 Modern "Woodmen of
America, there will be a special meeting
of Camp 332 this evening July 30th for

dance is desired, by order of V. C.

That Seeret Extradition Treaty.
England has murdered or driven from
Ireland over ten million people during
the reign of Victoria, and still the same
nation hounds you to this country and
has the hellish cjty to approach our
legislators and ask them to pass Iuwp by
which England could extradite any Irish
man who would attempt to defend his
own and his family's life and their home
from the accursed landlord ond bailiff.
Yes, this back stairway English-treaty,
was drawn up by the Democratic United
States minister in London, and at the
dictation of Eagjish statesmen, and that
treaty worded by Englishmen waa sent
to the United States scutate to be ratified.
It was ratified by Cleveland whom the
Irish vote put in office, then sent to the
senate for their "secret" approval!
Let Irishmen remember this on election
day that Cleveland approved it, and
every democratic senator in this country
voted to have it discussed and confirmed
private. The republican senators
voted to haye it discussed in
that the people would know
said about it and who said it.
and his cabinet seeing that
likely to meet great opposition had it
laid over till next December when it will
be called up again. If any true Irishman
ever votes for Cleveland or any demo
cratic senator after knowing and hearing
this, I hope the ghost of some "red devil"
will haunt him forever, even to the day
of judgment, till he repents in sack cloth
and ashes for his wickedness.
