frontier state. Later with her parents
she moved to Kentucky and still later
to Indiana, In the year 1855 she met
and was won by George V. Fairfield,
then a civil engineer in the service of
the DlufTton Railroad of BlufTton, Ind.
They were mairied in the year lS.r." at
Fort Wayne, Ind., and the following
year saw the newly wedded couple cross

"Where Quality Counts."
Last Thurday evening at the Meth
odist church in this city Frank II. Leon
ard, of Brooklyn, N. Y., delivered a
lecture on Christian Science to a good
sized audience. Hon. R. B. Windham
presided at the meeting and introduced
Mr. Leonard is a very pleasant pub
lie speaker. He has a good voice and
a fine delivery. He said the Christian
Sciencs church had no creed, but that
it tun.9 to the Bible for its doctrine.
He said in part: "The work which
Christian Science is doing for mankind
today is enabling us to eliminate from
consciousness the belief that there is
any other life than the spiritual, and is
bringing dominion and power to the
one who before was held in bondage,
subject to all things, master of none.
When Jesus said, if a man keep my
sayings, he shall never see death,' the
saying he referred to was this: 'He
that believeth on me, the works that I
do shall he do also; and greater works
than these shall he do: because I go
unto my Father.' The works he was
doing when he made this statement
were these: he was healing the sick,
clear.sir.g the lepers, casting out evils,
and raising the dead, 'by the Spirit of
Gad,'-to His glory, and to the libera
tion of all those who turned to Him."
He showed how Christian Science
had grown from a half dozen believers
in 18o, until now it maintains churches
in an Puri3 01 ir' country, and in al
most every civilized nation of the
world. He said the lack of develop
ment in other churches, where they
were making little progress, was due
to the fact that they were not doers of
lhe work. While not all of his auditors
agreed with him, they were pleased
with hid address.

The above shows the score by innings
in the ball game at the park Saturday
between Plattsmouth and the C. II. S.
base ball team from Omaha.
I-t was a rousing game and at the
iui of the eight inning our team looked
like a sure winner with the score 4 to 2
in its favor. But right here the Omaha
boys got in some heavy stick work and
the end of the score showed they had
added four runs to their list, and giv-
ing them a lend which it was impossible
to overcome, as the best the home team
could do was to make one score at the
last time to bat.
The heavy batting of Mann and
Sabatkin were features of the game.
In fact the latter batted so well he was
in to bat a little too often to suit the
umpire who was about to rule him out
during me eigntn limine: hut the matter
was settled by compelling the base run
ner on second to return to first.
Omaha made two double plays. One
from Kennedy to Kennedy retiring the
ase runner and batted and and from
Waugh to Kennedy, ditto.
Errors, Plattsmouth and Omaha 4.
In the fourth inning Mann had his
finger hurt and he was placed in the
eld with Fitzgerald behind the bat
and Beal on third.
