New Boiler Ordered and When Re
ceived There Will Be No More
With a little help and boosting on
the part of the residents and business
men of the city, I'lattsmouth will booh
have a twenty four hour electric
lighting service that will do justice
to any city of this size. If Mr. Albert
Clabaugh, the energetic superinten
dent of the Nebraska Lighting Com
pany, can get the city council to agree
on an all night seivice for the city
s'reet lights, arrangements will prob
ably be made immediately for the ad
Although there has been a number
of requests for longer service for sonic
time, the lighting company deems H
MWKuanrv iliiit si tun contracts he drawn
up, guaranteeing at 'east a part of the
inci cased operating expenses that
would come with such a change,
before the twenty-four hour service
can be absolutely assured. At the
present time, the city has about C0 of
the 40 candle power Tungsten lights
on the streets in the residence districts,
for which they pay an annual sum of
$17 a light, while the new contract,
which will be presented to the city
dads, making the lighting hours just
twice as long, reads at the very reason
aide rate of S'J5 per light.
Theie are but few people of he town
who are aware of the completeness
of the city lighting plant, and of the
considerable sums of money that aie
being spent on it to make it amply
.supply the city's "juice.',' In the past
few montlis over $7,000 has been usee!
in equipping the plant with new ap
paratus, and the company now l
duplicates of every machine, making
two distinct plants with the exception
of the boilers, and therein lies the pres
ent trouble. But this matter wil
oon be remedied, for before the week
is over, another 125 horse power Atlas

The boiler trouble was the cause
of the brief shutting off of the current
last night. Itseemsthat the big fog
maker receives it's weekly bath on
Sunday and it takes decidedly quick
work to get it in working order for
it's evening pull, and last night, on
account of a small leak in the water
column, there was a little unusua
delay in getting up steam. However,
when the new boiler is installed, these
delays will be entirely done away wit
and a few of the wrinkles will come out

Nelson J. Murray and family have
just returned from the state of Wash

Murray says he failed to see the "pol

absence and he thinks he has seen
nough oi that much talked ot ccuntrv
to last him for a long time. The Ne
braska man spent his time in Spokane
and some of the towns along the Sound
and he found the long drizzling rains
of the winter months very oimrcss-

Mr. Murray worked most of his
time at his trade as carpenter, and
states that that country was never
made for his class of people. It might
c all right for the millionaire, who
would care to pay 55c a pound for his
butter, and 60c for his eggs; but as for
Nels, give him old Cass county, Nebraska.
Last year Flattsmouth had a pretty
good ball team to represent the city,
and it is now getting the season of
the year when if there is going to be
a team to represent I'lattsmouth for
the coming season, we should get busy
and see what cm be done.
The editor of the Daily News wou!
like to see a ripping good team tl
vciir. one that would make the othc
towns around this section take notice.
We understand that there aregoo
' local plavers here in the city, suflicici
.J.) make a good team. We also un
r.'.hvhtand that it might be possible
to find enough material from our local
ranks for a team which the town
vould support in good shape. The
question might possibly be as to wheth
er we had a box artist of the required
ability to deliver the goods in such
shape that games would be won.
We would like to get the senti
ment of the people here along the line
of having a team this season. The
News stands ready any time to asssisr
in any way possible toward themattct.
We would like to hear from all inter
ested and would like to see a meet
ing called in the near future. The
News office is open for a meeting at
any time the base ball fans feel that
they would like to get together and
talk the matter over.
Shall we get into the game?
Collection of Mechanical Toys.
Mason Wescott, accompanied by his
father, C. C. Wescott, and sister,
Alice Louise made a pleasure trip to
Omaha yesterday afternoon, incident
ally to see a very unique collection of
mechanical toys and models of lo
comotives. The interesting collec
tion is in the possession of Mr. Harold
Allen, a cousin of Mr. .Wccott's.
Mr. Allen is not in any way connected
with this sort of a trade, he is a very
tainted musician, and has simply
started this novil assortment of en
gines as a past time. It is said his
collection is as completo as could be
seen at any exposition. He has them
running by springs, steam, electricity
and every locomotive power that
could be imagined many of them
being of his own handiwork. The
Flattsmouth visitors spent a very in
structive afternoon at Mr. Allen's
residence and considered the sight
quite a treat.
Flattsmouth has a girl's basket ball
team, that is winning a reputation
which if kept up will mean fame in
the athletic circles not only for the
high school, of which it is an origini
zation, but fo; the town as well.
Last season, the school maintained
a boy's team, but this fall it was de
cided not to continue the boys five and
all the interest has centered in the
group of athletical lassies. The girls
arc a determined set for fair. They
have put on their war paint with the
one idea of pulling down the girls
championship of the state., and the
prospects are indeed bright for them
doing it too.
When the movement for the team
was startid in the fall, and the pros
pective candidates were looked over
the outlook was not so promising,
for although the girls had played a
few class games, none of them were
then developed to a high state of
proficiency. This however, makes
the girls standing all the more note

The customary line-up of the team
is Helen Irillity and Hachael Living
ston, forwards; Mattie Larson am
Fern Long, guards; Lenta barton and

A good deal of the success of the team
is due to the unceasing efforts of their
captain, Miss Trillety, and their
coach and manager, Mr. Harrison,
the high school principal.
Coaxes Had has been the general
place of practice for the athletes and
Mondays, Wednesdays and Thurs
days will nearly always find the girls
in the hall, induluine in their basket
throwing practice. The feminine
game is played, following the custom
generally practised throughout the
country, using the double center,
which raises the number on the team
from five to six. This fortn of line-up
is seldom if ever used by the boys
The girls are,undertaking a pretty
stiff proposition in a game with the
eru Normal team, which they arc
trying to list for Friday night. This
team is hardly to be elassed with the
high school teams, but it is certain
they will have to work for their goals
against the Flattsmouth aggregation.
There is some talk of a movement be
ing under way for a game with Falls
City in the near future, but as the
season is nearly at a close, this game
may not be scheduled this spring.

Man Falls Three Stories.
An accident which will probably
prove fatal happened yesterday to
Edward O'Kccte, a laborer on the new
Hrandeis building at Omaha. O'Kccfe
a single man, about 38 years of age,
was wheeling a load of brick on the
roof of the theater building, when he
missed his footing and fell from the
tcmporaiy platform to the third floor
below. The impact broke the im
foitunate man's right leg, and terribly
gashed his face and shoulders, but for
some reason he was not rendered unconscious.

Tired at Three O'clock?" "No Sir! I Use the Monarch"
IF typewriters were machines run mechanical means in
stead of human hands, you would find that, with a given amrnint
of power, a Monarch could be run at a higher maintained speed
than other typewriters.
Run by "girl power," you find that the Monarch is run at
a higher all-day average speed than other typewriters, and
without a "tapering off," from fatigue toward the day's end.
Both these truths are due to the fact that
