before, and did not feel equal to the
task of throwing the game, so McCau
ley went into the box for the locals.
Glenwood went to bat first and made
a score on a home run by Cunningham,
the second baseman. Plattsmsuth
made no score in their half and Glen
wood also received a shut out in their
second half and also in tho third, while
the locals s:orcd one, making the score
one to one at the end of the third in
ning. In the first half of the fourth
Glenwood filled the bases o:i a hit and
several bunts, in which the ball seemed
to take delight in evading the advances
of Pitcher McCauley, who made heroic
efforto to eet his claws around it. A
few moro bunts brought in two scores,
while a hit into McCauley's hands so
surprised that worthy that he forgot
to get it to first or third and Glenwood
had a man on first and third. Then
Catcher Wilkens made a 2-base hit,
scoring the man on third, and hIso Cun
ningham, who had stole second. Wil
kens stole third and scored on a single,
making the score 6 to 1 in favor of
Glenwood. Plattsmouth was unable to
score for the remainder of the game,
though they had many good opportuni
ties, with the bases full.
Glenwood made another in the sixth,
after which Williams went in for the
locate and the best they could do ofT his
delivery was one hit and three straight
One of the features of the game was
the excellent fielding of Jones, the vis
itors' regular pitcher, who nabbed cv
erything coming his way and even
leaned way up on the fence and caught
a one-hander which seemed an impossi
bility. This gentleman also made some
splendid hits, and if he pitches as well
as he fields and bats, he is certainly a
Wilkens, the veteran, also played
good ball and in fact the whole Glen
wood bunch are fast ball players, muk
ing but one error the entire game, and
to say the Plattsmouth team was out
of their class u not a thousand miles
from the truth. Drocge, who made a
hit in the third inning, was hurt while
sliJing to third on a steal. He slid
headfirst into the peg which serves to
hold the ban in place. He received
quite an injury on the top of his head.
Deal, who took his place, scored on a
hit by Smith.
The crowd in attendance was smaller
than usual and this fact materially
aided in defeating the home team, the
boys being greatly disheartened by the
slimness of the turnout

"Blessed are the pencemakes: for they
shall be called the children of God", is
the underlying sentiment of tho new
religious novel by Hiram W. Hayes,
author'of tho most successful book,
Tsui Anthony, Christian", which has
had such a phenomenal sale during the
last 18 months.
The new book will be called "The
Peacemakers", and as was the case
with author's first, it has been written
for a purpose. That purpose is to dem
onstrate that the way to bring about a
condition of the universal peace is for
each individual to think peace instead
of war. As showing the result of this
condition of thought, Mr. Hayes has
woven a story of great dramatic inter
est and unusual strength. While meta
physical in its general character, the
author has not hesitated to use physical
conditions as they exist in the world to
day to bring his characters into play
and to create situations of the most
dramatic. He has likewise shown great
ingenuity in his history of the future,
and has created political geography that
would do credit even to Napoleon.
The great beauty of the work to tho
average reader is its novelty, as it
deals with a subject never before
handled in this manner. Many have at
tempted to picture a world wide peace,
but it has ever been brought about
through conquest of some great mater
ial power. The condition toward which
Mr. Hayes leads his readers is that of
a peace brought about by the develop
ment of such right thinking on the part
of the individual, as to make war an
The story is romantic in the extreme,
but the characters are so noble and
the ideals are so high, that one is lifted
for the time above tho sordid ambitions
of mankinds to that higher plane upon
which the great Master metaphyician
lived and demonstrated his understand
ing by his mighty works. If the
author has occasionally dipped into the
material for bis situations, it has been
for the purpose of illustration, for
which he may well be pardoned.
"The Peacemakers" promises to be
come a speedy rival of Mr. Hayes first
and successful work. The Rcid Pub
lishing Company of Boston is the pub-ilsser.
About 190 manufacturers of farm ma

shown by experts in charge, making it
possible to get exactly the machine
best suited to his needs.

Government will Continue Ex

of little Pests.
Missola, Aug. 28 -The government's
work in poisoning prairie dogs on in
fested stock ranges in this National
Forest district has had results this
year which forest officers have decided
warrant its continuance in 1910. For
two years systematic efforts upon an
extensive scale have been mado by the
Forest Servico in co-operation with the
stockmen, to rid tho National Forest
Ranges in Arizona, Colorado and New
Mexico of these pests, but this work
was not undertaken in the Northwest
until the spring of 1909.
Eastern Montana and the Dakotas
seem to be the worst infested portion
of this District. Tho National Forest
areas of these regions are comparative
ly small, but in some instances the col
onies or towns of these animals cover
an area of several hundred acres and
the native forage plants have been
greatly in jurcd, while some range areas
outside the forests have been practi-.
In the spring of the present year
small allotments of funds were made
to the supervisors of the Custer and
Sioux National Forests for the purpose
of starting this work. The funds
were for the most part expended in
purchasing strychnine and other drugs
used in preparing grain for bait, while
the grain was furnished by the settlers.
The poisoned grain, usually wheat,
was distributed at the holes throughout
the dog towns, both by forest officers
and by forest users. More time was
consumed in perfecting the plan of co
operation than had been anticipated
and much of the bait was put out too
late to obtain the best results, though
several large dog towns were entirely
cleaned up. Experience has proven
that the grain should be put out very
early in the spring-in fact, just as
soon as the animals appear from thir
winter quarters-for the best results
may be obtained before green grass
