"NMmtoa Chocolate kin Bull Game Saturday. The local baseball team will play the Geo. II. Lee team of Omaha at the Chicago Avenue grounds on next Saturday, Juno 5. This game ought to be a cracking good one as the Lee team is one of the crack Omaha amateur teams and the locals are not so slow. They have been putting In spare moments practicing and they intend to make a showing which will surprise the fans. Manager Warren is giving the boys a course of sprouts calculated to make real ball players of them and by Satur day he hopes to have them with their batting eyes.

The boys will appear next Saturday for the first time In their new uni forms and they are a neat, nobby looking bunch. Turn out and give them a boost. In addition to the strong Lees, the locals will play a strong Atchison, Kas. team In the near future. Band Did Fine Work. Through some oversight, The Jour nal failed to properly give the Wood man bnnd credit for the excellent work which they did last Monday both on the street and at tho ball park. The boys were engaged by the ball club to parade the Main street and march to the ball grounds and also give a small concert previous to and during the game which they did. It Is hardly necessary to sav they played some fine music for they have already an established reputa tion for furnishing the real goods despite their only having been prac ticing a short time. They. play In time and have splendid expression and are altogether a mighty good outfit to llBten to. It was Intended to have an appreciation of the band appear with the account of the ball game but it was misplaced Is some manner and overlooked. Tho members of the ball team de sired that an expression of their ap preciation of the band boys bo print ed and that their public thanks be extended them for their services. SM-iial Policeman.
