The Louisville Team Winning by a
Score of 3 to 4 Attendance
In a hair-raising contest yester
day afternoon at the Chicago Avenue
ball park, the fast Louisville team
defeated the local team by a score of
to 3. . Plattsmouth's Inability to
hit Hulfish who pitched for Louis
ville at times when the hits were
needed was responsible for the de
feat as the locals played a brilliant
fielding gamo and largely aided In
keeping down the score In that way.
For the visitors Hulfish pitched a
strong game although wild at times
and a little unsteady but at critical
moments he braced up and the locals
found themselves unable to get the
needed hits. He also was well sup
ported by his teammates who played
a good fielding game as a rule.
Baylor who pitched for Plattsmouth
suffered from lack of practice and
did not have the speed necessary to
compete with Hulfish. Had It not
been for the great support given
him in the field Louisville would un
doubtedly have added several scores.
He will Improve with practice and
more work. The Infield of the locals
covered Itself with glory, Smith and
Larson playing especially brilliant
ball at second and short. Mann had
the misfortune to split a finger dur
ing the first Innings of the game
which compelled his retlrment from
behind the bat to center field, Fitz
gerald taking his place and playing
a good game.
Others who did fine work were
Boal and Droege although the re
mainder took advantage of any op
portunities which came their way of
which there were not many. Mc
Cauley distinguished himself by some
heavy hitting making two drives to
deep center field one of which was
captured after a hard run. Smith
also batted well and secured more
safe hits than any of the others.
It looked like a shutout for Platts
mouth up to the seventh Inning when
the boys found Hulfish for their first
hits bunching several with a couple
of Louisville's errors and scoring two
runs. Another run was added In the
eighth. Louisville secured all their
runs In the first Inning of the game,
the last half being goose eggs for
them. The entire game was a good
one and furnished a lot of excltment
for the audience which was only
Another game Is booked for next
Saturday, Manager Warren securing
a South Omaha team for that oc
casion. Owing to some of the play
ers at that point being unalle to
get away, their team will be a picked
nine composed of the best men from
several clubs and the name will be
announced, later. Ladles will be ad
mitted free as usual and a large
crowd Is expected. The game ought
to be a hot one and the locals hope
to win It by a handy score.

The announcement was made last
Monday morning of the election by
the directors of the City National
bank of J. M. Teegarden as cashier

shlp of that lnstlutlon. Mr. Tee
garden becomes a stockholder and
director, further than this there Is no
change. C. W. Blsh retains his In
terest and continues In an official

ccssary by the Increased volume of
business. Jacob Domingo,
Clifton Countryman who has been
assisting at the bank the past few
months has concluded to go to Colo
rado and In partnership with his
brother-in-law, they will locate In a
town and start a bank.
Mr. Blsh finds that the work Is too
confining, as he has been practically
alone since his brother left here.and
ho was desirous of securing someone
In the bank who could fill the post

Teegarden Is peculiarly fitted for the
place. He has a thorough knowledge
of values of property, Is acquainted
with nearly all the p ole or the coun

In whom all have the utmost con
fldence, and by his personality will
no doubt assist In building up the
already rapidly growing business of

thought that tramps are responsible
for the theft.
Louisville needs an ordinance to
regulate the speed of automobiles
within the city limits. There are
scores of these machines In our

right to speed through town at a
forty mile clip.- Half of the dogs in
town have been killed off, but we do
not wish to have any of our citizens
run down. There Is a great deal of
earless driving that should be stop
