was evidently short of the necessary fi

bat who could not condescend to recede
from his usual high life ambition, walk
ed into one of the large hotels of the city

certain what liabilities he was liable to
rome in contact with should he take din
ner at their house. "Fifty cents," said
the clerk. The young man set his fertile
brain to work and shortly he raised his
head and in a much subdued tone request
the clerk to pass him in for half price
as he was a very moderate eater. We
are sorry to say the clerk looked at him
by a rather sarcastic glance and replied:
"We could not afford to let you in there
for a dollar."

Council Bluffs vs. Plattsmouth.
Yesterday morning about fifty people
from here accompanied tins base ball team
to Council Bluffs, the required number
being secured to reduce the rate. The
Council Bluffs team met them on the
Lake Manaiwa bull ground, where
promptly at 3:30 the game was called.
About five hundred people were present
and witnessed the game. The Platts
mouth team was apparently far from be
ing in as good a condition as usual and
the Bluffs team was not obliged to exert
themselves to win. The battery for our
team did good work with the exception
of allowing as many base steals. Their
field did very poor work. The score
would have been considerably reduced
had they not made a fool play by letting
in three men who could easily have 1cen
The officious manager of the Bluffs
team disgusted many of the spectators
and fatigued the players by his authori
tative gibbrish. Such a bull-headed
fanatic, as a manager of a base ball
team, exhibits very poor judgment on
the part of the team as they will surely
be obliged to put up for his funeral ex
penses should he be allowed to accom
pany them very far from home
The umpire received considerable
credit from both teams for bis good
The Plattsmouth club left their op
ponents in the batting record, but owing
to the good fielding of the other side, it
availed them but little. It is reported
that two or three imported players assist
ed the Bluffs team.
As some ui the home team were in a
poor condition, they cannot receive the
full blame for their loss.
The following is the score by innings:
Council Bluffs.. 0 0 3 1 0 1 3 1 8
Plattsmouth 0 200000002
Base hits Plattsmouth

A Narrow Escape.
Mrs. Walter Young, who resides on
west Main street, narrowly escaped a hor
rible death last evening by the dangerous
fuel, gasoline. The gasoline in the stove
was about exhausted and before she was
about to refill the tank she turned the
flame low enough to extinguish it as she
thought. She went down cellar and re
turned with a crock full of the fluid and
as she leaned against the stove to pour
the oil into the tank, spilled a small
quantity which was caught up by the
She did not discover that her apron
was afire until she felt the heat from the
blaze which got a good start on her cloth
ing. In her excitement and attempt to
put out the fire she dropped the jug
which she held, and it fell to the floor
and broke, letting the oil run, which
scon caught, and in an instant the whole
room was filled with a blaze.
She immediately ran outside and at
tracted the attention of her husband and
his brother who were near at hand. Mr,
Ed Young In attempting to stop the fire
on her clothing knocked her down

Remember that he who sells most can
xu9 use or cocaine Is steadily increasing in
the practice of medicine in this country. It
Is ? roost dangerous drug and one of the
most useful in tne bands of our practitioners.
You hear people abusing cocaine, and talk
ing about the lives it has wrecked and every
scientific man must admit that the cocaine
habit is about the worst thing a man or
woman poulu get; but you don't so often hear
the things (hat ape pn he predit side of the
ledger. Cocaine has made the surgery pf th
eye and (be larynx very much easier. It is,
as you know, a local anaesthetic. Much of
the most delicate surgical work would be
very difficult without it, and in spite of the
failure which several doctors have mode, I
believe it may be used with magical effect in
cases of melancholia.
The trouble is that we do not know how to
use cocaine as yet. It la a new discov
ery not ten years old. We have not had
time to study it, you nee. The cocaine habit
is formed as easily, more easily than the
habit of drink, and once it takes hold of a
man he is a goner, it saps all his will power
and makes hini . first a slave and then a
maniac. But for all that the drug will be a
blessing to men when we understand it
rightly, as we will twenty years from now.
i think it will be classed among important
ucdicine3 with quinine and chloroform.
