a few years ago there was a newspaper
war with the result that the advertis
ing rates were cut to a point where
they do not pay the cost of composi
tion, consequently in the cuse of the
News it became decomposition. The
management will put in all its efforts
now to make its semi-weekly edition
a thing of beauty and a joy forever,
and it is to be hoped that the people
over there will lend their assistance
in the matter. Hon. K. M. Pollard,
who owns the paper, has been putting
up in rairuury mere is a "young
lad" we used to know well. He was
at one time an associate of the writer
on this paper and we always had good
reports to make of him. Then he
left us in our hmesomeness and
misery went away, dually getting
stranded or something at Fairbury
where ho was compelled to undertake
the work of putting new life and vigor
into the Gazette at that place. He
is succeeding all right, as we knew he
would, but at the same time has taken
unto himself airs and . has become
"cockey" if you know what that is.
Recently there appeared in this highly
moral, and at the same time, great
family newspaper, a little whisky edi
torial to which our friend seems to
take exceptions as instance what fol
lows from his pen:
It seems to be so easy for the

at Lincoln on account of its dry
condition when occasionally some
fellow gets tanked up in that town.

shot at the dry town because a

is not to be wondered that our old

Last Sunday's game fully demon
strated the all 'round ability of the
Red Sox when they defeated the crack
Lincoln Star team, who for but the
second time this year met their mas
ters. Our sporting editor was not on
the scene Sunday when the shut out
game was executed, having gone to
Omaha to see some professional (?)
ball, and he got his pie-recepticle
full. It was Omaha and Wichita
and the comedy of errors dished up
Sunday was enough to make Willie
Shakespeare's version read like a
card of thanks.
Omaha fans think a lot of Ta
Rourkes trained nurses, for they go
wild whenever their pets steal a base
or get to third and never whimper
when they fail to score, becauset herere
used to it we suppose. Of all the
dubs that ever booted a pig skin the
Omahaogs are the bell-cows. One
would judge from the stunt they put
on that they had received their train
ing at some ladies seminary, and as
Ade says, they couldn t put up a ball
were it handed to them on a silver tray
with water cress around it.
This may sound like spreading on
the mustard with a paddle, but the
Plattsinouth Red Sox can skin Rourkc s
aggregation as easily as a monk can
skin a banana, and we predict that
ere the end of the present season the
World-Herald will be asking for do
nations for the establishment of a home
for "also ran" ball players. Graham
plays the game all the time but he re
sembles a diamond m a dirty shirt when
they get together.
The game on the local grounds Sun
day should bring out a record break
er crowd. The Red Oak, Iowa, team
one of the fastest of that state, will he
here and they're will be something
doing worth your while.
The line up will be about the same
as Sunday, and from their performance
with the stars we see where the Red
Oak will have to travel some if she ex
pect to take our goat over the river.
Don't forget the big game on the
Fourth. The Lincoln Stars have ar
ranged to play the Sox on that date.
As the Sox have been the only team
which has not allowed them to score
this year they are naturally "laying
for us." It will be their playing to
regain lost laurels and the Sox playing
to show them their superiority, so
don't fail to be there.
Of course if you're a cheap mutt,
and prefer to do the tight-wad specialty
by walking around and planting your
self up on the hill where you can pinch
your two bits, the boys would just
as soon you stay at home with the
rest of the cattle, or go to the gate keep

no doubt he'll let you in free. Don't
climb the hill and get your eye full for
nothing. It takes money to run a ball
club and if your interested enough to
see the game sec it as you should.

To the People of Nebraska.
In response to an urgent demand
from educators and from other citi
zens throughout the state I have de
cided to present my name before the
Republican primaries for the state
I desire to Bay that the efficiency
of the State Department of Education
is such that no oue can hope to improve
greatly upon it. Having been in close
touch with the work of the department
d iring the past twelve years, under
standing and approving of the leading
policies of the administrations of Jack
son, Fowler, McBrien and Bishop,
together with my knowledge of pul
lic school conditions in the state I feci
that I ought to be able if elected to
continue the growth and iimprtancc
of this department in its relation
to the common and higher schools of
the state. I regret that Superintendent
Bishop is not to remain to work out
more fully the excellent movements
started during his administration. It
would be my desire to maintain the
general policy of the present admin
istration with reference to the teaching
of agriculture and other industrial
work in the schools. I would earnestly
desire to lay special emphasis on the
