They Trim the Pinochle's to the Tune
of 23 to 1.
On May 8th, the Avoca ball team
crossed bats with an aggregation
called the Pinochle's. But it was
the same old story, the Greens won
with ease, and but for one mlsplay
in the ninth inning would have scor
ed a shutout. The Avoca team put
up a snappy article of ball all the
way through. Considering the fact
that this was the first time the Pin
ochle's have been together this sea
son, tney did exceptionally well, Dut,
of course, were clearly outclassed by
Gillin's Greens. J. P. Rassmussen,
manager of the Pinochles, is confi
dent that with a little practice, his
team can make a much better show
ing. Hon. John Knox, as score-keeper,
and W. R. Graham as umpire, did
themselves proud, as the decisions
were perfect. At the end of the game
the score-keeper announced that the
score stood 22 to 1 in favor of the

convine of that. Mr. Olson has had
a force of young ladies engaged for
some days in mailing out some post
cards telling of the merits of his new
photo machine and he Is now com
mencing to appreciate the fact that
people read advertising. He is get
ting an enormous number of Inquir
ies about the machine with inquiries
as to terms and the like and his
stenographers are kept busy answer
ing letters on the matter. Some 17,
000 post cards are being sent out
and the result has been to make
a large Increase In the business of the
local postoffice. - That the new ma
hine will sell like hot cakes is certain
as every photographer in the coun
try Is interested in it and wants to
get something which will be the la
test method of printing photographs
and this machine fills the bill. It
is expected that the machine will be
on the market next week as the as
sembling of them Is proceeding with
rapidity at the factory and the de
mand can then be met. Mr. Olson
who has had great confidence in the
machine, is himself surprised at the
demand for it and knows now that
success is more than assured.

Through an oversight yesterday af
ternoon an account of the meeting
of the fire department held last Mon
day evening, was omitted. The meet
ing was largely attended and a very
harmonious one and considerable
business of importance was attended
to. One pleasure of t"he meeting was
the distribution of a box of excellent
cigars, the gift of Dr. Frank D. Cum
mins. Dr. Cummins remembered the
boys In this pleasant manner for their
good work when the house of his
mother, Mrs. Kate Cummins, caught
fire several weeks ago. Owing to
the active work of several members
of the department, coupled with a
quick response to the alarm, the fire
was confined to the roof of the build
ing and the damage done was not
great. Dr. Cummins' gift was appre
ciated by the boys as it is not often
they receive such marks of apprecia
tion for their hard work.

Red Men Swinging Signs.
Workmen are engaged this after
noon in swinging the new sign for
the Red Men hall, mention of which
was made in the Journal several days
ago. The sign Is a very handsome
one and shows up handsomely. As
told in the Journal the sign Is of sil
ver leaf on a blue back-ground and
was the product of George Luschln
sky. The Red Men can well be proud
of it as it makes a sign readable at
a great distance up the street.

surplus which will be raised there
will be available here to make up
the shortage in this part of the coun

Washington and believe It to be the

Washington, May 11. Census Direc
tor E. Dana Durand says that all esti
mates so far given out are premature
and Inaccurate, that there will be no
official announcements of population
totals for weeks to come and that the
public can placo no dependence on any
so called estimate until the final fig
ures are given out. None of these will
probably bo forthcoming before the 1st
of June, and the bulletins will then

story of some days ago to the effect
that the returns showed the population
of the United States to be about 91,-
000,000. that of New York about 4,500.-
000, that of Chicago about 2.500,000
and that of Philadelphia about 1,500,000
Is tlio merest guesswork. These fig
ures are of no more value, according to
Mr. Dura ud's intimation, than were
guesses made last year. It Is only a
short time now till wo may know how
big we are according to the card. I'u

Congressman Fails to Bring Receipt
From County Treasurer.
Lincoln, Mty 12. G. M. Hitchcock,
editor ot thu World Herald, came to
Lincoln to file his name as a caudiJato
for the Democratic nomination for
United States senator, but as he failed
to bring the receipt from the county
treasurer of Douglas county showing
he had paid the uece sary $5, he will
have to try again. Mr. Hitchcock was
under the impression that the money"
was to be paid here. Mr. Bryan came
downtown at noon and ate lunch with

"I am not In favor of an extra ses
sion of the legislature," said Mr.
Hitchcock, "though I am In favor of
the Initiative and referendum. In fact,
I believe that a great majority of the
Democratic party favors the initiative
and referendum, the greatest oppo
sition to Jt coming from Omaha, where
I live." .!.,'
"No, no, I feel certain that Mr., Bry
an will not be a candidate for the
senate," answered the congressman
to the question. "Bryan's friend3 have
known his position and they kuow
that he does not Intend to run-."
Asked if he would oppose writing
county option in the Democratic plat
form, should Mr. Bryan fall to secure
his extra sessjon, the congressman
said: "There will be a lot of Demo
crats who favor county option and
many who oppose it. I shall be among
those who are opposed to putting it
in the platform, not so much because
I am against county option, but be
cause I believe it is not a party ques
tion at all."

Fencing is the question you are about to consider. Whether
it be Field, Poultry or Garden it is necessary that you get just
what is best adapted for your purpose and to give the best results.
If you think of getting poultry fence, let us show you poultry fence
that is about three times as heavy as the ordinary Diamond Mesh
fence and at very little additional cost. This fence is heavy
enough to turn stock if necessary, and will turn smaller chickens
than the Diamond Mesh. New car of fence will be here in a few
days, so in order to be sure to have what you want at the time you
want it, let us set it around your yard. 1
