FORT GRDQK SOLDIERS II HARD
FOUGHT SIM IIIIIE EIE
Plattsmouth Team Plays Finest Game Ever Seen in This City and
Lose by the Score of 2 to 0. .
From- Saturday's Daily.
Maybe the old Chicago avenue
grounds didn't see some base ball
game yesterday afternoon and may
'be the handful of people wno parted
with a few shekels didn't get the
worth of their money. Then again
maybe they did and then some. The
first time in many years In this city,
a ball game came near to lasting in
to a double header. And it was all
base ball, too.' For sixteen Innings
the brave soldier boys from the
Sixteenth Infantry at ForCrook and
the rejuvenated Plattsmouth team
struggled and fought and bled, as it
were, and then the soldiers pulled
down first money and won by the
heartbreaking score of 2 to 0.
And maybe it wasn't a hard game
to lose! Not knocking the soldier
boys, who are about as good a3 ever
hit this town, the game ought to
have been Plattsmouth's. Far be It
from us to decry the lowly umpire
who is human and prone to error but
we solemnly aver that Rector pitch
ed one of the greatest games of ball
even seen here or anywhere else and
won his own game in the tenth in
ning, only to be called out at the
plate by Slater of Fort Crook who
umpired. For Slater it can be said,
ho is a good umpire aid wa3 eminent
ly fair. From where he stood the
play looked as if Rector was out un
doubtedly, but from the other side
of the play it could be seen he was
However and beitso, Rector de
serves all the credit of pitching a
winning game. For five innings not
a soldier boy touched his curves and
not a man got to first base, and af
ter that the hits which came were
few and scattering and two of those
charged against him were of the
scratch variety. Really but three
hits were made oft his superb de
livery. We have criticised the Ne
braska City Minks but with Rector
in the box, we will have to say they
have got an awful good chance to
win for he surely makes 'em come
over like peas. It's Rector for us.
And that man Smith for the sol
diers was not so bad. lie was hit
harder than the score indicates for
nine long flies went into the out
field but with all that he is some
pitcher and could brace up and
squeeze out of a hole when the time
Then Plattsmouth Jtad Jt some
catcher yesterday, too. Keithlcy for
us. That old kid sure is there on
the catching proposition and played
n fierce and battling game yesterday,
j lie caught Rector like a vet and his
throws to bases were good enough
to hold even the fleetfooted khaki
boys close. And Waller for the boI
diers was also there and over. He
had the advantage of Keithley in be
ing a veteran, having been playing
ball when Halley's comet hoved In
sight in 1835, so it is said. And he
has all the tricks of the trade down,
too. He kept the audience in a con
stant roar of laughter from the Btart
of the game until the last man went
down in the fatal sixteenth and made
himself a popular favorite. But at
that, he had nothing on Keithley as
And then there was that Droege
boy eleven chances at short and
not a stumble. That is some man
and some ballplayer and McCauley
at first with 29 chances and nary a
fumble, and Fitzgerald at second who
had eight chances and no mistakes
while the outfield! . it never did
lose anything. Surely Plattsmouth
went as far as it could but it turned
to the left.
And the balance of the soldiers
are all ball players, too, every man
jack of them. They are one of the
fastest bunches of players ever to
come to this city. For team work,
head work and general knowledge of
the game this team is a mighty hard
one to beaU And with all that they
are gentlemen every one of them
and they made an impression on the
public here which warrants them a
cordial welcome if they ever return.
Ana now for the game. Fort
Crook opened In the first inning and
it was 1-2-3 with them. Three lit
tie infield hits were all that could bo
gotten off Rector and the inning was
over before people knew It had start
ed. Fitzgerald for Plattsmouth gar
nered a hit off Smith in their half
but it did no good ns Ileal
had gone out on a long fly to Kalal
and Droege on another long hit to
Murphy while the best McCauley
could do was to hit to Smith who
tossed him out at first.
In the second for the soldiers
Sherer went out to Drooge on a pop
up. Qulgley flew to Kelly and Mur
phy fanned. Plattsmouth Keithley
got to first by being hit and then
came a double play which electrified
the audience. Pete hit to Curran
who threw to White, doubling Keith
ley, and White then threw Pete out
at first Rector was thrown out at
first by Waller.
The third was tame for Crook.
Curran, Washock and Smith went
out quick, the two latter striking
out. For Plattsmouth Mason got a
base on balls and Schneider who is
postmaster In this burg and better
at that than umpiring according to
the crowd, called him out when he
tried to Bteal second even though
White dropped the ball. Maledic
tions and profanity from Platts
mouth and cries of "back to the post
cards for you." Kelly and Deal
could do nothing and ended the In
The fourth and fifth for Crook
were repetitions of the third 1-2-3
over again with two more strikeouts
to the credit of Rector. For Platts
mouth there was a chance to score
In the fourth but a lack of nerve on
the part of McCauley lost it. Droege
had gone out, Waller to Sherer and
Fitzgerald had done likewise, Curran
to Sherer. McCauley got a single and
went to third on a bad throw of
Washock to catch Keithley at first.
Keithley went to second and on the
throw to catch him, McCauley might
have made home with the run which
would have won the game but stage
fright or heart failuro attacked him
and he didn't durst to try it. White
muffed the throw and ho could have
made it maybe. Pete hoisted a fly
into right and ended the inning. The
locals did nothing in the fifth, al
though Mason hoisted a long fly into
left which Kalal 'et alive.
Crook opened the sixth with a sin
gle by Curran who was sacrificed
to second by Smith and there he
died. Plattsmouth's end was Bhort
and sweet, "nothing doing."
In the seventh Waller gave the
home folks a spell of vavular trou
ble by getting a base on balls by a
trick as old as the late Mr. Mcthus
lem. He stole second a measley
trick and then came Pete, the man
from the wigwam, with a disastrous
bobble which let hi mto third and
let Sherer who had singled to se
cond. But then all things turned
out well for the right people, for
Waller was too game and tried to
race home on Quigley's hit to Real
but he reckoned without the host for
that man Beal made one of the most
beautiful throws ever seen on any
diamond and nipped the runner at
the plate wi!h room to spare. The
people rose up en masse as the poe
says, and gave Beal the mighty hand
clap. In its half Plattsmouth got
nobody farther than second which
Pete pilfered a foxy trick, and one
which saved him from being lynched
for his bobble. ..
In the eighth Crook got Murphy
as far as third on his long hit, which
was only a base hit but which he real
ly might have had credit for two
on, and on a sacrifice hit by Smith.
Washock got to first by being hit by
the ball and went to second on the
same sacrifice but there they ended.
For Plattsmouth 1-2-3, Bweet nothing
About this time the spectators be
gan to breath hard and the man with
the watery eyes opined it waa Borne
game "most as good as I used to
play at Factoryville." A dark, tense
silence brooded over the land broken
only by the wild howls of the rooters
perched on the hill and In the hol
lowsbut they were some broken at
Crook made a desperate attempt
to get one over in the ninth but fail
ed. Waller again got a base on balls
by his old habits, then got caught
by trying to monkey with old foxy
Droege and McCauley. They nailed
him to the cross at second, Droege
being the nailer. Waller Is old
enough to know that he can't travel
as fast as his confrere Halley though
he seemed to think bo. White got a
hit in this inning and went to sec
ond on Shero's out but there per
ished he miserably. For Plattsmouth
onco moro with the 1-2-3, that man
Smith pitching vicious ball and re
fusing to bo hit.
Tenth lor soldiers, nothing. Young
Mr. Curran who got to first on balls
was nipped at second as a diversion
which was the nearest to it. In
Plattsmouth's half the public thought
the game was won and from our
lofty seat in the nethermost heights
of the grandstand It surely looked
so. Mr. Rector whom we have Bald
before Is some ball player, hit a fine
bouncing single 'and he was followed
up iy Mason with another. Rector
took advantage of this hit and
scampered madly about the bases
while the ball was being chased by
Qulgley. The latter fielded the ball
to the plate to catch Rector who slid
and seemed safe but Slater who um
pired that base called him out.
The soldiers got nothing in the
eleventh nor did Plattsmouth.
In the twelfth Sherer worked his
way around to third on sacrifice hits
but no further. Plattsmouth did
nothing. The thirteenth for Crook
was nothing and the same for the
locals although Pete got a hit In that
inning. Fourteenth was 1-2-3 for
Crook and likewise for Platts. Fif
teenth 1-2-3 for Crook again and
likewise for the locals. Waller in
this Inning muffed a high foul which
peeved him a whole lot and amused
the uproarious crowd in the stand.
Then came the finish. For Crook
Washock got a base on balls, went to
second on Smith's sacrifice, and to
third on Kalal's Bame while Waller
sacrificed him home. Then came a
single by White which scored Kalal
and ended the run-getting. For
Plattsmouth sackcloth and ashes.
But for all that, my countrymen,
it was grand, good ball playing and
although defeated, Plattsmouth de
serves the highest credit. Both of
the teams played great ball and
Plattsmouth ought to appreciate that
they have a team which has gone
out for records. Sixteen innings is
among the longest games ever play
ed In the country and said to bo the
longest in Nebraska. The Bcore:

A good per cent of the other nineteen pay enough
for their clothes in the course of a year, but they
don't buy the right kind. They buy ordinary
clothes that look fairly well for a few weeks and
their stylish, good looks, vanish. Why buy the
"near good" when you can get our "QUALITY

Difficult Scriptures on Hell.
A little book selling at only ten
cents, postpaid, is having a very wide
circllatlon running up Into the mil
lions. It contains some very start
ling information respecting the
meaning of the word Hell. It claims
to demonstrate, both from the He
brew and the Greek of our Bible, that
Hall I s.N'OT a place of eternal tor
ment, but merely another name for
the Tomb, the GRAVE, the STATE
OF DEATH. It effects to show that
man was not redeemed from a far-
off place of eternal torture, but quot
es the Scrptlures proving that he
at the cost of his Redeemer's LIFE
and that the Scripture Hope, both
for the Church and the World, Is a
resurrection hope based upon the
death and resurrection of Jesus. The
book Is certainly worth the reading.
The Information It furnishes Is cer
tainly valuable far beyond Its trifling
cost. Order It at once from iho

Hours Pleasantly Spent.
About thirty-five of the delegates
who have been attending the thirty
fifth annual convention of the Ne
braska Eastern Star, at the Masonic
Temple, of Omaha, the past three
days, came down to this city on the
morning train over the Missouri Pa
cific, yesterday, and spent a few
hours at the Masonic Homo. The
forenoon hours were very pleasantly
spent in viewing the various rooms,
buildings and grounds, and visiting
with the members of the Home, and
it may be said to the credit of Mrs.
Askwith, that the entertainment of
fered on this occasion, was all that
a most hospitable mind could devise,
the delegates had come well armed
with lunch baskets filled with most
tempting eatables, and at noon this
was spread In the large dining room
of the Home and each delegate In
vited one of the members of the
Home to join in the banquet with
them. After doing ample justice to
this most elegant noon-day meal, the
remaining short time was devoted to
social conversation and finally tho
farewells were said. The delegates
departed for Omaha over the Burl
ington at 2 o'clock. The visit of the
delegates at the Home was most
thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated
by the members and they were loatho
to have them depart so soon.

Tho best weapon against prohibi
tion Is In the hands of the people.
It is temperance not only In drink
ing, but also in eating and in all
habits. Temperance Is the founda
tion of welfare and health. But it
happened to the greatest part of tho
people that at some occasions the
rule of temperance was thrown aside
and that some Indisposition follow
ed. Such an Indisposition Bhould be
treated at once, In order to prevent
a serious sickness. In such cases we
recommend Trlncr's American Elixir
of Bitter Wine. It quickly heals the
sore stomach and makes It able to
accept and digest any food without
difficulties. In weakness of the blood
this remedy Is without a peer, as also
In diseases of thd stomach, the In

fy tho blood and carry nutritious
food even to the smallest particles
