About as groggy a game of ball
as was ever witnessed on the home
grounds was played yesterday at
the ball park. The home team
seemed to be afflicted with the blind
staggers or the hippo or some
oilier disease. They tumbled and
tore through nine innings of al
leged ball in a manner to make one
ill at ease and cause troubled slum
bers to haunt their downy couch.
George Yapp had an olT day as a
pitcher yesterda3 and was very
wild, but as a catcher he put up a
ver3r fair game.
Creighton started into catch for
the home team but was struck on
the arm l3' a foul tip and forced to
retire. He will be all right in a
Sam Patterson pitched for the
locals and was hatted with far
reaching and disastrous effect. In
addition to this his support was
like an egg in its overripe stage.
Sam hit the ball though; he got
thtee hits ofT Miller.
Stephenson at third evidently
thought he had been put there for
an ornament merely, as he put up
a game distinguished for its rotten
ness. Bert Dunn and Jack Schulhoff
were about the only players on the
local side of the score sheet that
didn't have a big bundle of errors.
For the visitors Miller and
Mauphin were the battery and
the gave b3' far the best exhibi
tion of battery work seen here this
year. Miller pitched a fine game
throughout. The locals found him
for six hits but they were too scat
tered to net any runs. Mauphin
caught " him in elegant st3'le.
"Whitey" Miller and Sam Patterson
were not in it in stealing bases off
him. He threw down to second
with deadlj' aim. The remainder
of the Giants put up a fine game.
The attendance was about 75.
This is the score:

We acknowledge the receipt of a
copy of a special edition of the
Souix City, (la) Times, intended as
an advestisement of the business
enterprises of the cit3' but, particular-,
the "Corn Palace" exposition,
which opens Oct. 1st, and closes
Oct. 17th. 1891. This modern temple,
a magnificient structure heretofore,
will this 3rear, surprass in size and
grandeur all former attempts. It is
to be more than twice as large as its
predecessors, being 380 feet " long
and 200 feet high; in addition to the
corn palace the newest and most
unique attractions will be intro
duced, which, with the display of
industrial products will make the
evert one worth attending. With
the Coal Palace at Otumua, the
Blue Grass Palace Creston, and the
Corn Palace at Sioux Cit3', Iowa has
made wonderful strides in advertis
ing her resources. Could not a
mve be inaugurated by which Ne
beraska might be benefitted, like
wise. We have the essentials for a
creditable displa3r and it could be
made a profitable investment to the
projectors and the state, if the mat
ter were given the proper attention.
We have the resources and it is
onl- a question of time when our
state will make strides towaad the
front, but it would hasten the time,
if necessary steps were taken to
bring the facts prominently before
A Pleasant Time.
A pleasant social gathering took
place at the residence of Mr. C. K.
Wescott last evening, and doubtless
will be remembered b3" all present
as one of the most enjo3"able and

and amusements of an elevating
and edif3ring nature indulged in, as
can be appreciated, properly. b3'

SAD NEWS FROM OMAHA
William Parker Fatally Hurt by a
Mr. Samuel Parker, of this cit3
ri'ceived the sad intelligence, last
evening, that his son, who has been
employed on the U. P. road at Oma
ha had met with an accident that, in
all probilit3, will cost him his life.
As the train was passing the
station, making a speed of about
twenty miles an hour, Mr. Parker
attempted to alight but in so doing
struck the platform with such force
that, in an instant he was rolled in
a ball and hurled with great vio
lence to the platform and severly
crushed and mutilated. It was
ascertained that his right leg had
been crushed info a pulp from the
knee down, his head badly cut, and
skull fractured. In addition to
this his right shoulder was hadl3'
crushed and his back injured. It
would be 110 surprise to hear of his
death at 3113- time.
Mr. Samuel Parker, father of the
unfortunate mail, left for the scene
on No. 5 this morning.
LATER Since the above was set
up in type a telegram has been re
ceived announcing the death of Mr.
Parker. The funeral will take
place at the M. K. church to-morrow
at H o'clock.
An Old Newspaper.
Mr. L. D. Bennett left upon our
table this morning Vol. I, No. 1. of
the "Platte Valley Herald." It being
a copy of the first edition, it is the
oldest copy in the county. It bears
the date of Oct. 18, 1800.
The paper is a neat seven-column
folio, independent in politics, and
edited by Alfred Thompson. The
county oflicers as given are as fol
lows: R. M. Clark, probate judge;
D. II. Wheeler, county clerk; Wr. D.
McCord, sheriff; J. D. Simpson,
treasurer; Wm. IL Spratlin,
recorder; A. B. Smith, county sur
veyor. Among the advertisements, we
notice the merits of the Platts
mouth Steam Ferry are extolled, as
is usuall3' done when a man wishes
the people to know that he has a
While there are peculiarities in
regard to some details of the paper,
on the whole, it shows that the en
terprise and ability of the editor
was in keeping with the demand
and doubtless it was a potent fac
tor in the promulgation of news in
(Jitite an exciting case was tried
before Judge Archer last evening
in which Mr. Buck Neel3', a black
smith, was tried on the charge of
whipping one Paul Sitzman. De
velopments proved that Neel3
using a buggy whip as a weapon,
and whipped;the boy quite severely,
making marks across his legs and
abdomen. Mr. Neely admitted
having whipped the boy, but
claimed provocation, inasmuch as
the bo3' insulted his wife in a verj
unbecoming and disgraceful man
ner. Justice Archer thought that
the deed was unjustifiable and fixed
the fine at $5 and costs.
While the boy. doubtless, de
serves severe reproof for having in
sulted Mrs. Neely, it does not lie in
the power of Mr. Neel3". nor even
the law of our state, to punish by
chastisement. The parent should
be appealed to as the proper author
i t in such cases.
That Rich Case.
In the case of K. G. Vanuatta vs
Mathew Gering this paper stated
last evening that said Vannatta vs.
Metteers attorney, agreed in consi
deration of $20 would induce Met
teer to settle the judgement re
covered hy Gering. Since the publi
cation of this we learn that E. G.
Vanatta was not Metteer's attorney
and had nothing whatever to do
with the case of Gering vs. Metteer
except as Gerings attorney-, in
settling the same and that Gering
now refused to pay him for his ser
vices. If that ie the case it will not
be so rich as we at first supposed.
Fred Molitor, the hired man of
F. Kuffernberge, living seven miles
west of town, sustained a compound
fracture of the right leg below the
knee. The accident occurred about
9 o'clock last evening, caused by a
Republican Central Committee.
The Republican County Central
Committee will meet at Weeping
Water, Saturdav, Aug. 15, 1891.
