Home Team Has Not Been Defeated This
Season A Splendid Record.
In the game played with the llan
scom Tark team of Omaha Saturday
afternoon on the home grounds, the
Plattsmouth lied Socks, by bunching
hits in the second and third Inning,
walked away with the honors of an
other game to place upon the record
which as yet does not show a single
defeat. About two hundred people
were in attendance, and we were pleas
ed to note that nearly every man paid
his admission fee, for which they had
the pleasure of itnesslnga good game.
In the first inning the Hanscom boys
came to bat first, and struck out in
one, two, three order, and then ex

who were unable to find the sphere
When the visitors came to liat in the
second inning, the first man upsingled
and through errors by the locals, and
sacrifice hits lie made the rounds and
brought in the only score accredited to
the Hanscom Park team. The home
team came to bat. and by a scries of
errors on the Dart of the visitors and
some effective batting by leathering
ton, Fitzgerald and Ilutler, live runs
were made in the second, the visitors
being shut out again in the third, and
four more men put across the plate by
the Red Socks in the last of the third
After the decisive runs of the game
had been made by the home team, the
Hanscom Park boys took a big brace
and held the locals down during the
rest of the game, only one well earned
run being made by the lied Socks in
the fifth. The features of the game
were the base stealing by Fitzgerald
and Wilkins: a three base hit by Fltz

A Week of Entertainment.
A number of Elmwood friends of
County Clerk and Mrs. Kosencrans ar
rived in the city Sunday and are be
ing entertained by these excellent peo
ple this week. Yesterday, In honor of
the visiting nuests, several of the
townspeople, including 1 eputy County
Clerk Morgan and wife, G. L. Farley
and wife and Superintendent and Mrs.
Gamble were added to the guests.
Notwithstanding the extreme heat
the afternoon was most enjoyaoiy
spent in a social manner.
Of course an excellent dinner was
prepared for the guests, which consist
ed of all the delicacies of the season,
and which were delightfully relished
by the participants.
Those present from out of town were
Pr.Trcnholm and wife, F. A. Raker
and wife and Mr. Enos Hughes, of
Elmwood, and Miss Cora Raker, of
Gretna. All these people will remain
as guests of Mr. and Mrs. Roscncrans
during the week, and in the meantime
will be joined by several other guests
from Elmwood and vicinity.
When freight train No. 2! pulled in
from Pacific Junction early Saturday
two colored gentlemen alighted from
their palace (stock) car and proceeded
to take a view of the city. After satis

being shown one of those by the clerk,
he said it was a needle for the instru

He was supplied with this and
then asked for some cocaine, and upon
being refused this by the clerk, he be

on going behind the counter and show
ing them how he used the stuff. He
finally left the store, but had not been
gone long until the syringe was missed
and the police notified. After a short

A special from NebraskaCity, under
date of Friday says: "Early Friday
morning the body of an unknown man
was found on the Missouri Pacific track
near North Tenth street. The man
had evidently been struck by a south
bound train near North Eleventh
street and his body dragged about 100"
yards. The body Is mangled and the
head Is missing, so that it may never
be Identified.
"It is not known what time or by
what train the man was killed. The
body was discovered by the engineer
on the early morning passenger train
bound for Omaha. Coronor Karsons
was notified and had the body remov
ed to the morgue.
"The man found on the Missouri Pa
cific tracks this morning has been
identified as John hrexel of Omaha.
Hrexel had been working about a mile
west of where the accident happened.
When last seen alive he was under the
Influence of liquor and had sarted for

men over reach themselves In trying
to get ahead of their neighbors. An
old skin flint who formerly lived in
Glenwood sold some property here re
cently and Instead of deeding all of the
property he managed to hold out five
feet of It. It Is the general supposi
tion that he expects to hold somebody
up and that they w 111 have to buy that
five feet sometime at an exorbitant
sum. The city will put In a new ce
ment walk and tax It on that strip
and there will be other taxes to pay,
and we hope that he will get so badly
pinched that he will not try any such

though some people never get too old

they deal. Glenwood Opinion.

The Heartless Gossip.
I)ld you ever notice that "talk"
doesn't hurt a man much? Perfection
Isn't looked for In man, and when some
one tries to Injure a man by ranting
about a few faults he has, the absent
one, who Is probably attending to his
own affairs, is elevated In the hearers
estimation, while the Informant Is
lowered accordingly. If a man knocks
along, doing fairly well, people realize
that while he has some faults, he has
more virtues, and they arc charitable
enough to these faults.
Put It is different with a girl or wo
man. No matter how good and pure a
woman may be, let someone start an
Infamous He about her and everyone
Is willing to pass It along and there Is
always some one to believe It. That
lie can never lie lived down. It may
burn low, but lovers are ready with
new gossip fuel. Hid you ever think
how damnably mean some goody-good
people are In this respect?

-Louisville Courier.
There are no doubt some few In our
city who are unfavorable to a street
carnival, but a large majority of our
business men have given liberally for
the purpose of securing the Parker
Amusement Company here for the
week of July ll 11, Inclusive.
The Eagles of the city, after mature
deliberation, have finally determined
to push the carnival, an 1 furnish the
amusement-loving people of ( 'ass and
adjoining counties with a whole week
of solid fun, such as has never 'before
been witnessed in Plattsmouth, and
such as no other carnival can give but
the Parker Amusement Company.
Fur the past two seasons we li;ie
had st reet fairs, but. neither one are
to be compared with 1 his company In
any way. C. W. Parker, the owner, Is
a gentleman, who Is known all over
the land as being honorable and up
right hi all his dealings and the Jour
nal Is ready to reiterate what the pa
pers have said III the towns thai fin
Parker company have visited this sea
son --that it Is the finest company of
Its character tiaveling.
The Park Amusement Company car
ry ten shows, four free at t tactions and
one of the, finest bands that travels.
It takes a train of fifteen cars locarry
the paraphernalia and the company,
and they own the cars they have in
use. The Journal views tin! street
fair in a different light, perhaps, than
many, and bHieve in getting the. best
while we are at it, and Is well satisfied
that the Parker Company Is enabled
to give the people their money's worth
In every particular. Their shows are
all free from that class of vaudeville
which usually travel with carnival
companies, and no one need be afraid
to take his family to see any of them.
The Parker Amusement Company
were in Great liend, Kansas, last
week, and here Is what the Tribune
has to say in reference to the company :
"TheC. W. Parker Amusement Co.
arrived on Sunday, having been en
gaged to furnish the attractions for
the Fire Fighters Spring Jubilee, and
by tliis time the people of Great Pernd
are realizing what the 'Parker Stand
ard' of carnivals Is. It has been for
cibly demonstrated to us this week
why we often hear the remark that
Col. C. W. Parker Is to the carnival
business what the Illngllng Pros, arc
to the circus business. In with these
lines of amusement it has taken west
ern men to set the pace rorincir re
spective lines. It affords us much
pleasure to add our small mite to the
already long list of recommendations
to the Parker aggregations and It has
never been our pleasure to have met
a cleaner, brighter, nor bettor carol val
company than the C. W. Parker
Amusement Co. and much credit for
this condition of excellence Is due to
the untiring efforts of the lesces and
managers, Messrs. Hoy Cramer and II.
S. Tyler. This company presents four
Free Attractions that arc seldom
equalled and never surpassed by a car
nival company. They consist of Lc-
Pctite Faustina, a charming young
lady, who Loops the Loop in a large
wooden ball; Monsieur liorrlnc I oe-
clssl, who Leaps the Gap on a bicycle;
Valers Clark, acrialists supreme, on
the double trapeze; and Sig Claricus
Kinir of the Hounding Wire. Each of
the free acts are given twice dally be
ginning at 2 p. m. and one every hour
thereafter except at fl p. m.

I'.uroplan town, where the natives as
semble to market their different
wares. The custom originated in sev
eral of the prosperous towns in Texas
several years ago, ami has proved so
successful us a business proposition ti
the merchants, that many of the coun
ty scats in the Lone Star state are
carrying on thesame successfully anil
to the general satisfaction of the busi
ness Interests. The Journal's only
Idea In publishing this article Is hi the
hope that u similar proposition might
he adopted by the people of Platts
mouth. Towns In Texas have boomed
In a business way lneonseiuenceof the
"First Monday" business, ami we can
not see why, If other towns have been
revived in a business way, that I'latts
inoutli wit li the adoption of a day like
this, could not he brought out of tho
"kinks" and business revived lo Its
former days:
"Two years ago two newspaper men
of the town got together to see If they
could not Increase the t rade area of
the town and set apart certain days;
for certain purposes. The citizens,
more especially the business men, took"
up t he Idea, and several meet ings with
hcM, with the result that, the first,
Monday in each month
as trader's dav. livery one living with
in Altos' trade territory was asked to
bring In town anything I. c wished lo
dispose of, either by I lading, selling,
' swapping," or any old wa.. The
newspapers devoted a certain amount
of space to booming 1 traders' day" in
the editorial, local and advertising
columns, the merchants Increased
t heir advertising space to call atten
tion tohargalns which I hey had to of
fer for that day only. As a general
rule, each merchant, took some .special
article he could make a leader of, cut
the price on It and advertise It extensively.
"From the beginning "traders' day'1
has been an iiinualilied success, and
the big crowds which assembled hero
on that day have more than justified
the extra time, trouble and expense,
the effort has cost the merchant s, and
it. is an instlt ut Ion firmly cslahlishcil
in the minds of the people. Now
"first Monday" crowds come without
sending for them, though the mer-
cnanis coniiniie looiierauracuve oar
gains throuiih t he newspapers, and any
event of any importance lo the people
of southern Greer county, or any pub
lic meeting which it is desired the
farmers shall attend and take Interest
in, Is always set for "first Monday."
The minstrel shows, repertoire com
panies and all the rest of the dinky
"Tom" and "Ten night" shows make
it a point to get Into Alius on that day,
and they are never disappointed In tho
crowds that are here to welcome them.
The church societies also take advan
tage of the day to serve the crowds
with "chicken pie dinners." The
great interest shown In the irrigation
movement was worked up on a "first
Monday" when the crowds of farmers
were here and had to listen to the irri
gation men brought here by the busi
ness men for the purpose of speaking.
Farmers come from fifty mllesaround,
and within a radius of ten miles in
every direction from Altusand it would
be an unusual thing to find a farmer
at home on "first Monday." They all
come to Altus, bringing their families,
who crowd the stores all day long,
where they dispose of their farm pro
ducts and do thclr.'tradlng.
"One great feature of the day which
has done Altus an Incalculable amount
of good Is the working up of the live
stock Interest. For Instance, horse
traders surrounding Altus for thirty
miles come to town on "first Monday,"
bringing all their animals for sale or
exchange. There are as many as a
dozen horses being auctioned off at the
same time on the southeast corner of
the square, which Is the chosen place
for the horse market.
"It would seem that nothing can
detract from the popularity of "first
Monday" In Altus, and each time the
crowd shows an Increase In numbers.
Although In March there was the
worst and most disagreeable dust storm
of the season, the crowds were there
just the same, and about as much stuff
changed hands as usual."
