New Office Fixture.
Dr. Elster, the prominent eity den

The bowl is of colored glass which is
made to revolve by the net ion of the
water on the inside. The office is now
being piped for the new apparatus
but it will be several days before it can
be put into operation. This form of
a bowl is used by nearly all of the up
to date tooth pullers and the addition
of it will mean a great improvement
in the Main street dentist's facili
ties. Surveyor on Avenue.
(From Tuesday's Dally)
II. D. Patterson, an engineer from
Papillion, arrived in the city this
morning with his surveying instru
ments and with the help of a few men
from the city, he will go to work on
surveying Chicago avenue. The street
was gone over a short time ago and all
tho necessary marking stones were
discovered. Near the end of the aven
ue it was found the telephone poles
were nearly in the center of the street
proper. The stakes for the work have
all been made and it will be a short
job now to lay out the street and make
the preparations for the new macadam.
This really begins to look like the street
is to be improved although the city
council has not yet accepted Mr.
Will's proposition on the pitying.
The matter will be presented to the
city fathers within a short time and
it is hoped the actual work will start
Besides the surveying of the avenue
the grade will be established for three
or four side walks in different parts
of the town, and the engineer will
probably bo in the city several days.
BEATS ASHLAND TEAM !
High School I zCs Win Their First
Game Played this Season.
The Plattsmouth high school lads
put up the real article of base ball
Saturday afternoon wlien they trimm
ed the Ashland High to the tunc of
19 to 12. It was the genuine stuJT
from start to finish and there was
something doing in every inning.
Although the Ashland team had the
local team bested in their size and
huskincss, the Plattsmouth nine man
aged to show them up when it came
to slugging the ball.
The Ashland pitcher began to weak
en in the fifth inning, and the coach
wishing to save him for next week's
game, took him out of the box and put
in a sub.
The visitors found the Plattsmouth
twirlcr with considerable ease during
the first inning, starting out strong with
three runs. The locals were equal
to the occasion however, and they
slammed out three round trips that
made the first innings score a tie.
The home pitcher got into the pace
as he warmed up and held the visitors
down to three runs in the next six
innings. The Plattsmouth beys ham
mered out the runs every oilier inning
at the rate of three or four a frame.
The Ashland team rallied in theeighth
and ran in six men when the game was
stopped so that they could make
their return train.
Whalen, the Plattsmouth pitcher,
showed up to fine advantage in the
game and the fellows now feel confi
dent in his qualities which arc going
to give something to build up the team
Falter on third, played a good game
throughout and was the leading stick
artist of the team. The way he slugged
the ball meant a run nearly every time.
Kanka on first put up a good game
and stopped a number of hot ones
that came his way. Dovey out irt
center field made good in getting under
the sphere. He caught three pretty
filies during the game. Propst behind
the bat was there all of the time. He
and his pitcher worked well together.
Hertld and Briggs - were strong on
the bat and slugged the sphere for a
number of safe hits. The entire Platts
mouth team showed more skill in
finding the ball with the stick than the
Ashland lads did. Larson at short
covered lots of ground and in but,
drove out a three bugger. J. Way
bright with the Ashland bunch also
sent the ball in the air for a three
The local pitcher strqek out seven
men, the two Ashland men, eight.
Most of the game's scores were re
sults of errors. Thej umpires were
Drocgc and Richie. The score by
Plattsmouth. ..3 0 4 0 3 4 0 410
Ashaland 3 10 10 0 1 fi-12
The only disappointing part of the
game was the meager crowd that
turned ouk to support the fellows.
It was the first game of the season
and perhaps the sporting blood in the
Plattsmouth fans hadn t begun to
waken up yet, but it's a cinch there
ought to be a larger crowd out for a
game like Saturday's. The team
could stand a little more loyal support
from the school pupils too.
The High school fellows did not
make expenses on the game. They're
not the kind thatarc going to mourn
over the loss of a dollar or two,
nor are they going to get cold feet
and not run the risks of going in the
hole on other games; they're going
to get the best games possible and all
they want is a crowd to turn Out and
sec them skin their visiting opponents.
The next home game will, probably
be in two weeks. Next Saturday they
play the Nebraska City boys at Ne
braska City and the Ashland nine meet
the University Place bunch at Ashland.
A City Beautiful.
To the traveler who passes through
this city on the Burlington or waits
for the train at the station, how im
pressed lie must become when he
looks out to the eastward over the un
dulating plaaa which extends from his
feet to the clear, cooling waters of the
Missouri, half a mile distant, andees
spread out before him those beauti
ful monuments of the thrift and handi
work of the garbage man; beautifully
placed in promiscuous confusion, so
that each seems to vie with the other
in tho effort to draw attention which
its especial symetrieal formation de
serves. As the weary traveller, after
riding for hours across the great state
of Iowa conies across the big bridge
into Nebraska and beholds these
wondrous beauties, how he must be un
impressed with the thriftiness of the
Antelope state and the esthetic nature
of tho people who in 'such pictuesquc
ncss exhibit the bcautiousness of the
"Stlftungs Fest" at Omaha.
(From Monday's Dally) j
A number u ;'ie Plattsmou; !' ns j
of Herman went i.p to Omaha yes.er-,
day aftcrniK.il to lutcnd the big anr.ual
met iing of ti e German order. The j
local delegation left on the two o'clock I

in the evening. Following an after
noon of bowling and various other
games and amusements, the members
sat down to an old time Dutch spread.
It was one of the big events of the
year for the Sons of Herman and every
man that attended was glad that he
was there. The Plattsmouth dele
gation returned on the "owl train"
last night. They were John Sattler,
William Kaufman, Henry Kaufman,

Geise and William Budig.
Wants Divorce. '
(From Monday's Dally)
A petition for divorce was filed in
the district court this morning by
Mrs. Edith Allen on the grounds that
her husband Waverly T. Allen was
a heavy drinker and while intoxicated
had threatened and abused her. She
claims that he has not provided the
family with enough money to buy
clothing and provisions and that it
was necessary for her to work in order
to support the family of small chil
dren. She is asking for a small ali
mony and a monthly allowance suf
ficient to support her family. Mr. and
Mrs. Allen are both residents of Weep

Following the institutions of the
Plattsmouth Cominen ial club, P. A.
Barrows went to Om.-.ha Saturday to
interview Mr. W. L. Swygart an al
falfa man who has had considerable
experience in the business and who
was manager of a large mill at Albion
a couple of years ago when a company
was formed there and the mill built
at that place. Mr. Swygart signi
fied his willingness to come here and
assist the loca' comany in their plans
and pive them such information as he
could toward getting the mill establish
ed. Mr. Swygart is nn old friend of
Mr. Barrows and said he would
glad to help the matter along as much
as possible. He will probably he here
Cattle Bring Big Price.
A bunch of Cass County cattle
brought a top notch price at South
Omaha a few days ago when John
Warga took up a dozen steers to the
stock yards and came home with
$1,220 in his pocket. The animals
were a herd of fine beef steers that he
had raised on his farm about five miles
south of town. He had them fattened
up until the beeves were in fine con
dition and with the high juice of meat
at present, he got about S102 each for
them. This looks like a pretty good
ad for Cass County cattle and for the
stock man that raised them.
Turners' Dancing Party.
A delightful dancing party was en
joyed at Tunic Halle Saturday even
ing by flic members of the German
