Well, Plattsmouth didn't do so
worse, after all. J ne local oau ooys
copped off second money at Malvern
and just missed first by an eye lash.
The first game was lost on a fluke
something which Is liable to happen
n any game and something which is
quite unavoidable. The boys played
fine ball in all three games and the
unfortunate bobble which cost them
first place and fifty slmoleons of real
money was merely one of the inci
dents which must be overlooked. The
second game on Thursday with Car
son resulted as told In last evening's
paper In a slaughter of the lnno-
ents, Carson being taken into camp
by the score of 6 to 1.
The great big feature of the tourn
ament was the ruthless scalping of
the Sidney team by the locals. The
score wnen the swatresi was over
was 17 to 1 In Plattsmouth's favor,
something truly awful and war
ranted to remove any possible feei
ng that Plattsmouth couldn't play
ball. Williams, the live Indian,
pitched the game for the locals and
had Sidney on his staff. They never
at any time had a look-in .and se
cured their one run merely as a gift,
as It was quite unearned. In justice
to Williams, It may be remarked that
the first game which he lost could
be charged up to a sore arm, as he
complained of tb arm before going
Into the game. Despite this he prob
ably would have won out fut for an
unfortunate error behind him at a
critical time. But the game yester
day developed no sore arm. He was
there, klddo, with the goods, and
had curves and shoots and things
to beat Sidney and the band all put
together. It is said one Sidney
player complained to the umpire
that the ball, when It passed him,
was under size, but ibis is rumor
merely. Anyway, It was too scarce
lor the Sidney batters, who were
mowed down right and left.
In addition he was backed up by
superb fielding. In fact, all three
games demonstrated that the locals
are some fielding team and they
kept their opponents guessing at all
tlmese. Cope caught the three
games and did excellent work, few
bases being oiolen on him. He was
there with the quick snap of the
ball and cut off many an unwary
runner who thought second or third
looked good to him. The games
were also characterized by great
work on the bngs and the outfield,
and the entire team acquitted Itself
In fine shape. The local pitchers
who twirled the second game de
serve great credit for their work.
The team this afternoon plays
Baker Bros, of Omaha, and if they
have anything like the crown they
deserve the Chicago Avenue grounds
will not hold the people. Turn out
and give the boys the right kind of
patronage. They deserve It, as they i
are, the greatest advertisement the
city had had In many years. They
expect to play every day during the
carnlvnl, and If the team is to be
kept together It must be by liberal
patronage. Remember, people, that
Plattsmouth at one time was the
live baseball town of Nebraska.
Don't you nil remember how we
used to cheer the locals on to vic
tory when Weeping Water, Wahoo,
Columbus, Uncoln, Norfolk, Kenr-
ney, Beatrice and other towns play
ed here. Well, we have the goods
now, and all we need Is the people
and the cheer. Your place Is out at
Chicago Avenue park with your two
bits and a loud hip, hip, hurrah.

parted this life after an illness of j
some little time. She was admitted I
to the home here on October 16,1

the Institution for almost four years.
Her remains were taken to DeWltt,
Neb., for burial, she having a
brother, Frank P. Baker, residing at
that point. She also had a sister
living there and another sister living
In Chicago. A most delightful lady,
her many friends at the home sin
cerely feel her loss.
Mrs. Sarah Conwell, who has
been In poor health for some months
passed on to the far country last
night She will be sadly missed at
the Masonic home, where she has
resided for the last three years. Her
brother, Mr. Baker, from Iowa, ar
rived too late to be recognized by
her, but not too late to see her eyes
peacefully and painlessly close In
the last sleep from which she will
meet the dawn of that eternal day,
to which we too hope soon to
awaken. Her body will be taken tn
the 1 p. m. train to her old home

owns a profitable private fish hatch
ery, arrived in Lincoln yesterday
from a visit to the state and govern
ment hatcheries in Michigan, Wis
consin. Ohio and Illinois. He also
attended the national meeting of
state and government flshculturlsts.
The hatcheries in Michigan and Wis
consin are the best in the county, but
Mr. Runlon, after visiting them, said
he had seen no better than the Ne
braska state hatchery, near South
The inspection of hatcheries In
other states was a revelation to me,"
said Mr. Runlon. "We saw some
hatcheries that have better and more
expensive buildings, but none is bet
ter equipped end stocked or Is near
er up to date In methods or is doing
better work thin tne Nebraska
hatchery under Mr. O'Brien. He
stands at the head of his profession
in this country and has been doing
wonderful work for many years on a
modest salary, yet It Is doubtful if
many of the people of Nebraska rea
lize what his services mean to the
tate. Mr. O'Brien could leave the
service of Nebraska any minute and
get several times the salary he is
receiving, but he likes the state and
has interests here, and no salary
elsewhere tempts him."
There Is no state appropriation
for the payment of the expenses of
the superintendent of the Nebraska
hatchery to national meetings, and
he was obliged to pay his own ex
penses. According to Mr. Runlon
the convention was like most other
national conventions, more or less of
a farce and little was learned there
by experts. The principal object of
the trip was to see the practical
workings of state and national hatch
eries that were visited. Mr. Runlon
has taken to fishculture for pleas
ure and profit. He has nine ponds
covering four acres, fed by a spring,
and makes a specialty of raising
bass and crapples. During the pres
ent year he sold $1,200 worth of fish
and has many orders yet to fill. He
sells mostly to persons who desire to
stock private ponds. The eggs of
bass are adhesive, unlike trout and
other fish of the salmon family, and
cannot be hatched by artificial
means. They are batched in ponds
by natural methods, and when the
fish are six months old they are
reday to be transplanted In other
Superintendent O'Brien came to
Lincoln to see about repairs on the
fisheries building at the state fair
grounds. His state exhibit at the
fair this year promises to be a little
better than usual. When the new
building was erected for this exhibit
ordinary glass was placed in the
aquariums, but every time a big fish
got restless and tried to get away
the glass was broken like so much
paper. Mr. O'Brien finds that in
some hatcheries glass one Inch thick
Is used. The state fair board has
promised to use glass half an Inch
thick for the game fish and large
'Of course some hatcheries main
tained by other states and by the
government have salt water displays
that Nebraska cannot have," said
Mr. O'Brien, "but aside from that I
do not think any citizens need be
ashamed of our state hatcheries."

Taken Suddenly 111.
Yesterday morning Thomas Troop
was taken suddenly and violently ill
with an attack of heart trouble and
for sometime his life was despaired
of. During the day he was troubled
with sinking spells and only heroic
treatment saved his life. A physi
cian was hurriedly summoned and to
this fact he can lay his speedy Im
provement. He was taken from his
place of business jvhere the attack
occurred to the home of his brother
Robert Troop last evening and this
morning he Is reported as much im
proved and It Is believed he Is now
out of danger. This is the hope
of his many friends at least.
