Rev. Baum
gartner Resigns
111 Health Cause of Popular Mur
dock Pastor's Re
tirement. Last Sunday, Sept. 2Gth, at the Lu
theran church north of town occurred
a most memorable farewell reception
which will alwajs be a pleasant and
cheering page on lift's book. Owing to
cot tinued ill health the beloved pastor
Rev. J. E. Baumgprtner was unable
lor.ger to minister to his congregation
in the able manner ho desired and as he
also wished to leave his charge in splen
did condition, he thought it best to re
sign his pastorate at this time, while
the church was prospering and he still
retained his mental faculties.
A meeting of the church members
was held Sunday afternoon, at which
time a Rev. Meiers of Arapahoe.Nebr.,
was tendered a call to fill the vacancy
caused by Rev. Baumgartners resigna
tion. Mr. Meiers was strongly recom
mended by those present who knew of
his ability and the call was made by a
unanimous vote and should he decide
to accept of this call we bid him a
hearty welcome. After the business
of the da was disposed of, Rev. Heart
man made a fine address to the con
gregation present in which he went
ovlt the record of the past 17 years
during which time Rev. Baumgartner
was pastor of this flock, certainly the
Lord has dealt kindly with the good
people of the congregation, a3 they
have prospered in every way beyond
what was their, due. The ladies of the
church next very cordially invited all
present to partake of refreshments
which had been prepared in a bountiful
marncr; and it was a real pleasure to
drop a coin into the basket which was
passed to show our appreciation of the
,. good works of the retiring minister,
and which was only a slight testimonial
of the love and affection in which he
was held by his admiring llo;k. Seven
teen years ago it was that Rev. Bsum
gartner took up the local church work,
coming here from RulTulo county; and
during this period of time he has suc
ceeded in buildh g up a very strong
congregation which worships in a beau
tiful church, surrounded by groves,
viryeards and orchards which bespeak
his handiwork as a first class horticul
turalist. In this beauty spot are also
located the parsonage and school, as
well as the cemetery.

leave for Lincoln this week sometime
to take up their future residence, as he
has purchased a fine home in the Capi
tal city located at 1610 So. 21th street,
where he will be glad to greet all of his
old friends. We regret his departure
from our midst and can only wish him
a full measure of the good things in
store for all those who have lived a
true christian life in this world.
Subscriptions Are Slow.
Major W. R. Flemke returned last
evening from Avoca where he had been
Sunday to deliver a lecture and a cou
ple of sermons. Ilia- organization has
recently sent out hundreds of letters
appealing to the community for funds
with which, to purchase a place lor
worship and the major desires to im
preis upon the people the need for re
sponding promptly. He states that so
far but two responses have been re
ceived, one from this city and one from
Murdock, and as the season is rapidly
advancing when it will no longer be
possible to hold street meetings he is
very anxious to get his funds in and se
cure possession of a place of worship.
Prospects are Cood.
Judge Beeson left last eveningon the
Schuyler for South Bend where he goes
to do a little campaigning. From there
he will make the Rock Island towns in
the west part of the county and return
to this city via the Missouri Pacific.
The judge is meeting with a most
hearty reception in his canvas for re
election, the assurances being received
from all parts of the county being of a
character to indicate that a sweeping
republican victory may be expected
this fall.
Feeder Condition Unsatisfactory.

Omaha markets continue to soaramong

may hold up indefinitely.the local feed

great as to warrant making haste

"Wins Pennant
One of the Closest Fights Ever
Seen in the Western
League Race.
The base ball season in the Western
League closed last Tuesday after one
of the hottest contests ever seen in the
west. Up to one month ago four teams,
Sioux City, Des Moines, Omaha and
Denver were making a fight for the top
position with chances that either might
win. A few day later saw Denver
take a slump which nut her out of the
race for the flag, while three weeks
ago Omaha lost out as a contender and
the race narrowed down to Sioux City
and Des Moines.
These two teams see-sawed backward
and forward for several days, first one
at the top and then the other till about
a week before the season closed when
it looked as if Sioux City had the flag
practically won, caused by the Lincoln
team taking a double header from Des
Moines, Sioux City at the same time
holding her own with Omaha. How
ever Lincoln took two out of three
from the Sioux a day or so later and
Des Moines won a double header from
Omaha and the fight again took on n
interesting condition. Des Moines and
Sioux City later got together the
former winning the full series of three
games, thus putting her in the running
again, with a percentage of .601 to
Sioux City .617.
With only three days of the season
left Sioux City went to Omaha to play
three games and Des Moines enter
tained Lincoln on the Des Moines
grounds. The first game between Om
aha and Sioux City on Sunday was a
tie 2 to 2, the second was won by Sioux
City on Monday 12 to 1. Des Moines
won from Lincoln both days and when
the final contest came on Tuesday it
was necessary for Sioux City and Om
aha to play on" the tie game to settle
the pennant, for if Des Moines woni
from Lincoln, anil Omaha won the first
game of the double header it would
take the second game to decide whether
Des Moines or Sioux City would win
the pennant of 1909.
Omaha won the first game from
Sioux City by the score of 6 to 2 and
when the news came that Des Moines
had won from Lincoln the excitement
at the Omaha grounds was intense.
Men went wild and the women waived
their Merry Widow bonnets in the air
and shouted themselves hoarse. At the
time the result was announced, the
second game of the Sioux City-Omaha
double header was about half over and
Omaha was one run to the good. Sioux
City tied it up the next inning, but the
strain under which they had played
for the past week seemed too much for
them and in the last half of that inning
they went to pieces and Omaha got
around for two more. The next inning
both sides scored once but it wasn't
enough for Sioux City and so the game
was over and a pennant lost for a team
that at one time seemed to have the
flag won without a doubt.
But that is one of the things in base
ball which makes the game so popular
and gives it a standing as the great
national game. The game is never
won for sure until it is over, and in
this case as in the case this year in the
other leagues the pennant is not won
till the season is practically closed.
Following in the standing of the teams
at the close of the season. It will be
noted that Des Moines is only one
point to the good:

Fine Millinery
The Greatest Display of Millin
ery Ever Opened in
M. Fanger will open and have on
display on next Thursday, Friday and
Saturday the largest, finest and most
up-to-date display of millinery goods
ever shown to the ladies of Cass county.
Mr. Fanger has always used great
efforts to please his lady patrons in
stylish millinery goods, and every one
who has visited his store k how's that
each succeeding season he ht more
than held good in this respect. This
line of millinery goods has been select
ed with only one idea in view, and that
is to please his former patrons and all
those who desire the latest and moBt
up-to-date styles in hats and bonnets,
and all other lines of millinery goods.
The fact is, Mr. Fanger's stock of such
goods is very large, and in his buying
he purchases for two establishments,
one here and at Omaha, and he has the
advantage over other small concerns of
getting his goods cheaper from the
wholesale houses than the others, be
cause he buys in greater quantities.
This is easy enough to understand why
Mr. Fanger has the confidence of the
ladies of Plattsmouth and vicinity and
why his goods prove the best in their
line. Faneer's department store is
known all over Cass county, and the
ladies especially know that when he
advertises a fine display, the goods will
be there in great variety. Remember
the dates of this great display-Thurs
day, Friday and Saturday, September
30, Octoler 1 and 2. Don't fail to be
there on one of those dates and order
what you want. There will be a great
rush, and milliners will have to have
time to trim what you order. And we
want to say that Mr. Fanger has em
ployed as head milliner an expert, and
one right up-to-date with her work.
