It is always a pleasure for the peo ple of any community to knew that the boys who have gone out from among them are making good in the line of business whiee they have chosen. Donald C. Despain, a Plattsmouth boy, and Russell Stoner, a Weeping Water young man, left this county some time ago, the former to accept a position of honor and trust under a Nebraska governor and the latter to take up work with the Burlington rail; road. Some time ago they began a partner ship in business in the city of Lincoln in which they have been doing well. A few weeks ago they became convinced that as a business venture the posses sion of the franchise of the Lincoln base ball club would be a successful one. It was true that for some weeks the club had not been going well and all the season had been at the bottom of the percentage column in the west ern league. It had not been drawing good crowds at thw home park, and in reality was decidedly on the down grade. To take hold of a business proposition of this kind requires a great deal of nerve and the outlay of a good deal ef cash m the way of the purchase of players. At the time they took posses sion of the team it was that part of the season where it is the hardest to get good players, but notwithstanding this they made an offer for the franchise and it was acccpeted. They at once began a campaign for good players and in order to build up the team they decided to dispose of the manager, one of the mo9t popular play ers in professional ball and a man. who hud hundreds of warm friends in Lin coln, but when the Omaha manage ment offered Despain & Stoner $1,500 for this popular playsr the offer was accepted. As was to be expected this move on the part of the Lincoln men raised a howl of protest that would in most cases have caused men in like circumstances to have jigged back, but there was no taking back on tluj part of the owners of the Lincoln team and the deal was concluded and the transfer made to Omaha. The outcome has shown the wisdom of the new owners. This left the Lincoln team without a manager and the wires were kept hot for several (lavs in an effort to find the BOYS' SCHOOL SUITS JXEaSQO0- at". . . O . O Dutchess Guessing Contest. The buttons in the Dutchess jar will be counted by a committee next Saturday morning at 10 o'clock. A pair of Dutchess $3.30 pants will be awarded to the person whose guess is the nearest.

Final ly as an experiment they put the team in charge of one of the catchers, Jini mie Sullivan, and at once the team came to life and has been playing a brand of ball that would purely won them the pennant if they had started right at the beginning of the season. Messrs Despain & Stoner have made good in the face of the hardest kind of discouraging circumstances. They have built up the Lincoln base ball team in spite of the most persistent knocking a base ball management ever faced, but the outcome has shown that the nerve required to win out was pos essed by these young men, and Cass county people will be glad to know that they are on the road to success. Four new players have been pur chased and the team is now considered one of the strongest in the Western League. The team will be playing in Lincoln every day except Sundays till September 20. and any Cass county citizen who is in Lincoln during that time ought to go and see the game and the fast aggregation that Despain & Stoner have got together. Meeting is Enthusiastic Republican County Central Com mittee Holds Session and Discnsses Campaign. Last Friday the republican county central committee met at the court house and was called to order by the chairman, Willard Clapp, of Elmwood. In the absence of the secretary, II. G. Welk nsick, who was present later in the meeting, L. A. Tyson was selected to act in that capacity. Reports and suggestions were made by Beveral members of the committee, and ad dresses were made by several others who were m attendance. . ' : It wtrn one "f the most, and we can really say, the most enthusiastic meet ing of this kind we ever attended, and speaks well for the future success of the republican party in Cass county. Everybody was feeling good over the situation and everybody reported a healthy condition of affairs in their lo cality. Another meeting of the committee will be held a little later when more definite plans regarding the campaign will be discussed.

Owing to the inclemency of the wea ther and the fact that great prepara tions had been made for the event, the Labor Day festivities planned between this city and Havelock have been post poned until next Saturday. Monday, the day originally set for these events, had been looked forward to as one the big days of Plattsmouth's big carnival, and when the day dawned dark and rainy, disappointment was expressed on every Bide. But the railroad boys were not to bo "shunted" onto a side track in any such unceremonious man ner. While the condition of the weath er precluded the possibility of doing anything today, the men in charge of the celebration promptly got busy with the wires, and securing Havelock 's ap proval, everything was postponed until Saturday. Among the events scheduled for that day which will be participated in by ' both cities may be mentioned A hose cart race, A nozzle fight, A wrestling match, A tag of war, , A 100-yard dash, A base ball game, And a parade of floats, societies, etc. Without doubt this would have prov en one of tho best days of the cantyal, and our people are to be congratulated that they are not to be deprived of witnessing these events. A Deserved Appointment. Luke Wiles, the prominent young stockman and breeder of Red Poll cattle, has been appointed by Got. Shulleaberger as a delegate to the dry farming congress which is to be held at Raleigh, N. C, on Nov. 4, 1900. The governor has been several months making the appointments, which num ber 125 from this state, but the list was not completed untill last week and given to the public through the medium of the state press on Saturday. An other prominent Cass county farmer to reaeive an appointment was I. F. Dale of Greeswood. Mr. Wiles is preparing to attend the Congress and will go if he can possibly get his work in shape. One feature of the trip which appeals to him is a visit to the old homestead of his grandfather, Thomas Wiles, who for many years re sided in the vicinity of Raleigh. Daniel Foster of Union, father of County Superintendent Mary Foster, was in the city last week attending to business matters and taking in the carnival. Our rain coats shine in rain or shine.
