IH 25 1 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 oals. 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 was the lineup: South Omaha Alma Dlckman, C; Edna Elster, Sub. C; Llljlan Dick' man, L. F.; Edith Finch, R. F.; Ola Alaworth, L. G. ; Gladys Van Sant, R. G.; Jean Berger, Sub Dorothea Van Winkle, Sub. Platts mouth Leota Barton, C; Bessie Edwards, Sub. C; Helen Trility, L ' P.: Racheal Livingston. R. F.: Fern Long, L. G.; Mattie Larson, R. G.; Marie Robertson, Sub. 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. SIJUIll 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 use. 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. Those who enjoyed Misses Dovey's hospitality were Mesdames T. P. Livingston, Allen Murphy of Om aha, H. Herold, A. E. Gass, W. J. Streight, Edith Donelan, C. 0. Fricke; Misses Bertha White of Om aha, Florence, Helen and lone Dovey. Lillian Murphy, Dora Fricke, Bar bara and Mia Gerlng, Mary Foster, Verna Cole, Martha Goehry,, Frances Hatch, Minnie Guthman, Majoriy Walker, Lusetta Patterson of Om aha. 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. William Rakes and wife of Rock Bluffs came up this morning and made a quick trip to Omaha, re turning on the noon train and drlv Ing home this afternoon. n I IMPRESSED WITH 1 SCHEME 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 1'ectiliur Vase. 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 to.
