A good Samaritan passed the way
where a democrat had fallen from his
ass and lay upon the road apparently in
deep trouble with a sore head and minus
a pant leg. The good Samaritan, who
was a republican, lifted him from the
miry clay and after bandaging the bruis
ed limb and bathing the swell ed head,
Bent him on his way rejoicing to lite laud
of the republicans Plattsmouth. He
informed the good man that he had at
tended a grand rally the night before.
Kev. W. B. Alexander, in his sermon
yesterday morning showed the amount of
money expended by the American people
last year for missionary purposes and
asked them to compare it with the amount
spent for do; tax the e&uie year. He did
not see why dogs should be taxed any
way, and that there was one which prowl
ed about in the vicinity of his residence
every night and made more noise than if
lie had not been taxed for the people

The Ball Came.
The Jctter & Young club of Omaha
badly defeated the Plattsmouth club on
their own ground last Saturday afternoon.
The Omaha team did not win the
game by extra smooth playing, but were
allowed to have everything their own
way by the general poor playing indulg
ed in by the home team. Mr. Tom Pat
terson, the pitcher for the Plattsmouth
club, who is looked upon by the players
of his team as their main support, was
badly crippled during the first inning
and was obliged to leave the field. This
break in the club discouraged and seem
ed to rattle every player, and they all
held the diamond down in a way that
prompted the spectators to believe they
were taking a day off. Two outsiders
were taken into the field before the game
The club was dissatisfied with three
or four decisions given by the umpire
and that helped to discourage them.
The club has played with twobetter
nines this season, both games being good
ones, and it is thought if Mr. Tom Pat
terson had not been obliged to leave his
box, a better game would have resulted
Following is the score :
Omaha, 0300 5 3010 12
Plattsmouth, 100000010 2
Umpire, W. Chambers. Battery for
Plattsmouth, Sam and Jim Patterson; for
Omaha, Hughes and Morrisey. Mr. Jim
Patterson made the two runs for Platts
mouth. He knocked a two-bagger.

Saturday a f teniae Leteea 4 nnd 5
o'clock, Clarence Forbes, a boy about 10
years of age, son of Mr. Chag. Forbes,
met with a very painful and ugly acci
dent. He had jumped on a farmer's wa
gon, as the famers were driving out Chi
cago ay enue on their return hom?. In
some way the bey fell from the wagon
and was run over, the wheei in 6Qje mys
terious way tearing the lower half of his
riht ear from his head. It is not known
by anyone whether one of the wheels
pasd over his head or not, but some sup
pose it did as ui ckull is slightly fractur
ed and his scalp badly eut. Jr. Schild-
knecht was sent for and arrived as soon as
possible. The piece of the ear which was
torn off was eved on immediately, and
at the last exauiinailoft f,ha doctor
thought the ear would be all right after
healing up. The boy cannot give any
information as to how the accident oc
c irred or how he fell from the wagon
Although badly injured about the head
