The sugar beets pounded Kearney
all over the diamond in the last
game yesterday. The grounds were
in trood shape and the weather
could not have been more favorable
for playing. Yesterday's games
were the first played by Kearney at
home and the disastrous results
were the subject of severe comment
by the local cranks. In the first
game Castone occupied the box, but
the sugar beets appeared to find the
ball as easily as an ordinary bal
loon. Hopp was in the box tor

A Fine Entertainment.
Notwithstanding the inclement
weather a large and representative
audience assembled at the opera
house last night to witness "A
Turkish Bath." The piece is a mu
sical comedy with no plot to speak
of and constructed on thepJan of "A
Tin Soldier," "Skipped by the Light
or tne jhoou, etc. the comedy is;
pure and of a high order, and the
specialties the finest heard in this
city for many a long day. The com
pany is excellent, each single mem
ber being an artist of ability. Miss
Heath as "Little Dot" is a sweet,
dainty winsome little lady, who
captured the hearts of the audien -e
at her first appearance. Her acting
was natural, charming and refresh
ing in ito own peculiar style and
her every appearance was hailed
with delight. Her song "Wont You
Come and Play," was simply im

derfully pretty, graceful and charm
ing glittle woman, with a sweet
and flexible voice of irreat ex
pression and power. She sang
The Last Rose of Summer" in a
manner that has only been excelled
by the great Abbott. It was divine.
Thomas J. Keogh, as "Officer Mc
Google," was great. He made one
think of Frank Daniels and Jimmy
Powers. Mr. Eckert aud his daugh
ter, Maybelle, sang excellently, both
possessing wonderful voices. It is
doubtful if ever before a company
has visited Aurora which has given
such complete satisfaction. We
trust the time is not far distant
when we will again welcome charm
ing Marie Heath and her excellent
company to Aurora. Aurora Evening-

A Venerable Goose.
The oldest goose on record as now liv

resident of Croton Landing, N. Y. He
says he purchased the goose from Isaac
Hill, who made an affidavit at the time
that the faithful fowl was fifty-two
years of age then. The goose lays fifty
eggs a year, and was sold by Mr. Ray at
the end of the third year of his posses
sion for $100. He says, to the best of his
knowledge and belief, she is how eighty
six years of age. New York Sun.

A Dangerous Tigress.
A well known student of the habits of
wild animals, writing of the stealthy
and dangerous character of the man-
eating tiger, mentions a case that hap
pened a few years ago m the Nagpur
district m India. A tigress had killed
so nianj people that a large reward was
offered for her destruction, She had
recently dragged away a native, but
being disturbed had left the body with
out devouring it.
The smk:ms believed that she would
return to her prey during the night, if it
was left undisturbed upon the spot
where she had forsaken it. There were
no trees, nor any timber suitable for the
construction ot a mucnarn. it was ac
cordingly resolved that four deep holes
should be dug, forming the corners of a
square, the body lying in the center.
Four watchers, each with his match
lock, took their positions in these holes.
Nothing came, and at length the moon
went down and the night was dark. The
men were afraid to go home through
the jungles, and so remained where they
were. Some of them fell asleep.
When daylight broke three of tha
shikaris issued from their positions, but
the fourth had disappeared; his hole was
empty. A few yards distant his match
lock was discovered lyinsr upon tli9
ground, and upon the dusty surface were
tho tracks of a tiger and the sweeping
trace where some large body had been
Upon following up the track the re
mains of the unlucky shikari were dis
covered, but the tigress had disappeared.
The cunning brute was not killed until
twelve months afterward, although
many persons devoted themselves to the
An Excellent Method of Exercising,
According to competent military crit
ics, one of the best drilled uniformed
bodies in this city is a juvenile battalion
called "The Knickerbocker Grays." It
is composed of from seventy-five to eighty
boys, ranging m age from eight to twelve
years. The battalion is an exclusive one,
being really a private drill class which
was started a few years ago by a num
ber of wealthy women who desired that
their sons should have the benefit of ex
ercise and instruction in the manual of
arms. The use of the Seventy-first Regi
ment armory is enjoyed by the boys,
through the courtesy of the officers of
that regiment, and they drill there on
Monday and Thursday afternoons dur
ing the winter season. The uniform of
the Knickerbocker Grays consists of
gray coat, trousers and cap of regula
tion pattern, and dark stockings. The
gray garments are neatly trimmed with
black braid. Each member of the Grays
carries a musket with bayonet
The president of the association, which
exercises a rigid supervision over this
drill class, is Mrs. Edward Curtis, the
vice president is Mrs. Beverly Robinson,
the treasurer is Mrs. Bradish Johnson,
and the secretary is Mrs. EL H. Chitten
