Was the Score of the Basket Ball
Game at South Orfiaha
Last Night
The Omaha Bee this morning has
the following excellent account of
the basketball game between the
Plattsmouth High school girls and
the South Omaha team. According
to this Plattsmouth certainly went
some in this game and won the ad
miration of their opponents.
Plattsmouth, 25; South Omaha 7.
This was the score of the basket
ball game by the girls' teams of the
two schools played last night at the
Young Men's Christian association
gymnasium. The Plattsmouth team
learly outclassed the young team
of South Omaha, doing faster pass
ing and making better plays. Helen
Trility of the visitors was easily the
:nost brilliant player on the floor,
rfhe was the left forward of the
Mattsmouth team and it was her
work which piled up the score. Her
delivery was exceedingly accurate
:ind when she leaned back and
threw the ball by an overhead swing
it nearly always passed through the
-.goal. Miss Gladys Van Sant was un
able to stop these scores. She was
'ast, however, and had she' more ex
perience would have learned the
rick of interfering. Miss Trility
threw four field goals In the first
half. The South Omaha girls sue
oeeded in making but one goal on
a foul, leaving the score 11 to 1 at
the end of the half.
In the second half Miss Finch
hrew two goals and one foul for
South Omaha. Lillian Dlckman al
80 threw , one foul. Miss Trility at
. the same time threw seven field
The South Omaha girls were be
wildered by the Jostling and speed
"f Plattsmouth, their practice games
being played with no such vigor. Mr.
Harrison of Plattsmouth and Miss
Dennett of South Omaha were the
-officials of the game. The following

Freak Weather.
An extraordinary freak of the
weather has been holding the boards
here for the past several days. Yes
terday afternoon' the sky clouded up
and there was every indication of
' snow but in the early evening
the rain, which had started in about
four o'clock changed to a mixture
at snow and rain and a strong east
wind sprang up. Later this devel
oped into a Bteady rainfall and the
rain continued to fall all night with
scarcely an lntervission. The night
was one of the most disagreeable
In years and very few people ven
tured out in the storm. This morn
tag it was still raining and up to
noon there was practically no ces
sation in the downpour. West of
here the rain was supplanted by
now and a heavy damp snow cov
ered all the country clear to the
Rockies. Omaha experienced a
heavy fall of wet snow as did Lin
coln and the intervening country.
The weather bureau for today pre
dicts snow, although there Is less in
dications than yesterday. The un
iiaual feature of the storm is that
this time of year every storm of
this kind with thunder and light
ning haB heretofore turned off with
a cold snap but this has acted the
wverse and warmer weather has
followed the wake of the storm.
Fanger's Big Advertisement.
The Journal today prints a special
advertisement for M. Fanger, the
Wooltex merchant, who is going out
vt business here. It invites the
Plattsmouth public and the people
from the surrounding country to
note what Mr. Fanger ogers them
In the shape of bargains. He is
making prices so low that everyone
is justified in taking advantage of
them and the figures he quotes,
speak, for themselves. The Journal
ta sure that his bargains are real
and that it will pay every house
keeper and every lady in this sec
tion to examine his offers. In every
department he has marked the
prices down to where it pays any
one to patronize him. This adver
tisement appears in the Journal to
day and you should not fall to read
it. Remember M. Fanger Is going
to leave Plattsmouth and everything
In his store down to the fixtures
goes at this sale. The advertise
ment speaks for Itself as to the
p.-Ices and if you fall to find in it
what you want, call upon the store
and ask the proprietor. He has the
soods and he wants to sell them
and It is up to the 'people now to
take advantage of his bargains.
Iu Police Court.
Judge Archer yesterday afternoon
had I. H. Sltzman before him on a
charge preferred by Chief Amick.
The chief found I. H. suffering from
an overdose of bug-juice and gath
ered him in. Judge Archer heard
the I'.rgment pro and con in behalf
and against prisioner and doled out
to him equal and exact justice to
the extent of one dollar's worth
with the costs which was squared
up and I. H. sent rejoicing upon his
way just as the shades of night
were falling fast. incidentally,
Judge Archer delivered I. II. a lec
ture upon the futility of human en
deavor In so far as drinking up the
product of the whisky thule, so to
speak, of all who went up against
the game.
This morning he had Bert Helner
before him charged with having
been foolish enough to go John
Barleycorn a few rounds yester'een.
Bert was complained against for
havinsr gone to Dovey's store and
then and there being exhibiting war
like tendencies and a desire to put
the business of said Doveys to the
bad. incidentally, also,' Bert had
n ugly looking butcher knife in his
pocket when haled in' by Chief
Amick, but he had made no effort
to use said weapon. Bert was
gathered into the arms of the police
yesterday afternoon and this morn
ing after a pleasant night with
Ell Manspeaker he faced hizzoner
who heard his story and then point
ed out to him the utter folley of
the course he wa3 pursuing. Judge
Archer reminded him that the way
of the transgressor was, indeed,
hard and then sentenced him to pay
a fine of five plunks and costs. The
whichness of all this is that Bert
had not the wherewithal to square
same and he was committed to goal
there to linger until said fine and
costs are paid.
In Honor of Miss Fricke.
A large company was most de
lightfully entertained zy Misses
Clair and Hazel Dovey at their home
yesterday afternoon at a kitchen
shower in honor of Miss Fricke.
After the arrival of all the guests,
slips of paper and pencils were dis'
tributed and the guests were request
ed to guess the contests of little
bags, which had been hung about
the rooms and which contained some
kitchen utensil. Miss Bertha White
of Omaha won first prize and Mar
jory Walker the booby prize.
Following the guessing game,
slips of paper were again distributed
and . the guests requested to write
pecipes for' the bride-to-be future5
The guests were men invited tc
the dining room, where a dainty
three course luncheon was provided.
The bride-to-be was them show-
trcl with various kitchen utensils.

hospitality were Mesdames T. P.

More Turkeys.
Thanksgiving turkeys will be very
scarce this year, and high In price,
and some of us thankful people will
have to do without them. That will
be a little difficult, for Thanksgiv
ing and turkey go together like
girls and boys. But there is no need
to be disgruntled at our own fault.
We have the fields, and If we do
not have enough turkeys, it is be
cause we are trifling away our en
ergies on less important things.
Chickens, ducks, tenderloins will be
scarcer, too, and prices higher.
But the spirit of Thanksgiving is
equal to any emergency. There are
many things to any emergency.
There are many" things in which it
will have a jubilant voice. Every
thing good hits Thanksgiving. There
are boiled beef and cabbage, swine
and turnips, big, snowy, roily polly
apple dumplings, stuffed pickerel
and pumpkin pie enough to make
any man thankful, who has a heart
in him as big as a walnut.
But where ' are the turkeys? Is
the story' 'of this life dropping be
hind? Are the farms losing their
grip? Are the farmers' wives so
absorbed in Paris fashions that they
are forgetting the turkeys? The
market reports from the east say
there are twenty-five per cent fewer
turkeys this year than last, and more
people to eat them. Raise turkeys.
Plant them in the waste places. Let
them cover the fallow ground. Let
us have less everything and more
turkey. Lincoln Star.

This City Has Adopted to Carry
Off Flood Water
Joseph Nation of Fremont, a
prominent traveling man out of that
city for the International Harves
ter company, was in the city yester
day interviewing the agricultural
implement people, remaining over
night. He was much impressed with
the scheme which this city has adopt
ed for handling the flood waters and
witnessed a partical demonstration
of it efficacy last night when he saw
the mass of water rushing down the
center of the street He pronounces
the scheme an unqualified success
and the only criticism he has to of
fer is in the failure to adopt some
scheme for crossings over the street
In time of flood. He suggested the
building of several crossings some
two or three blocks apart, the cross-1
ings to be raised some ten lncnes or
a foot above the street center hut
lowered at the ends so that teams
might drive aror.nd them. He also
thought there should be lights on
every street corner. In Fremont he
states there is a light on every
street corner In both the business
and residence portions of the city.
This Is made possible by the city
owning its own light plant. He says
municipal ownership In Fremont has
proven a great success and the peo
ple of that place would not consider
a return to the private ownership
project. Fremont also owns Us
own water works and ' this is ad.
ministered In conjunction with the
light plant and the two give the
best of satisfaction, Mr, Nation de
parted tbln morning for the north.

A peculiar case was filed yester
day afternoon in district court
wherein Alvln L. McDonald seeks to
keep his erst nominal wife, Agnes
A., from using his name in her busi
ness. The case is peculiar in that
in 1896 Agnes sued Alvln for a di
vorce, and on the trial of said cause
it developed that Agnes had mar
ried Alvln without the formality of
obtaining a decree of divorce from
a former husband. Hence, as Will
lam Shakespeare would say, Agnes'
suit went "where the woodbine
twineth" and she found the marri
age with Alvln merely annulled. It
would appear she had continued to
recklessly use Alvln's name as a
part of her business assets and he
objects strenuously to this. As the
petition was not In Clerk Robert
son's office, the contents are not
open to public perusal. Anyway, he
wants the use of his name stopped
and seeks the aid of the court there
