Secretary Hanson of the Fremont
Commercial club. The clover when
taken from the field was two feet

Bignell was promoting the channel

the Burlington railroad might be pro

the people that if his plans were
followed in three years clover would
be growing where the Platte rive
then flowed. He was hooted, his ef'
forts ridiculed and he was made th
object of much vigorous denunciation
on the part of some people. Never

Defeated Tabor Yesterday at
Malvern in Hard Fought Game.
Those who saw yesterday's ball
ame at Mah'n, la., returned full
f admiration for the Plattsmouth
earn wnieh won lis game atter a
heart-breaking finish and after it had
thrown it away in the first three In
nings. Incidentally, there is not a
man among the returning spectators
but has to say that Plattsmouth won
against ten men as the umpire did
about as rotten work as It was pos
sible for a man to do. His name was
Leatherhead, or some such a name,
and It seemed suitable to the occa
sion as bis decisions were either
knowingly wrong or he was utterly
unfitted for his place. Despite his
ile work, the Plattsmouth boys af
ter they got going crawled steadily
up on the Tabor team whom they
were playing and In the ninth inning
put over the winning run with two
men out.
Instead of playing the Shenandoah
Mink league team which had been
advertised the Plattsmouth team
found they were scheduled to cross
bats with the Tabor team, a strong
team and one with a number of dirty
ball players on It. One Instance of
this was when Kelly was seized about
the waist by their third baseman
who tried to hold him off the bag,
using rough tactics to prevent his
scoring. Kelly fought himself loose
and reached the bag and eventually
scored, this being the first run of the
The opening of the game looked
decidely ominous for Plattsmouth.
Bardwell was hit hard in the first
three innings and errors by the team
behind him were costly, enabling the
Tabor team to pile up 6 runs In the
first three innings while Plattsmouth
could got none. Part of the errors
of Plattsmouth were charageable to
the wretched field on which they
played, it being full of holes and
bumps and the infield having tufts of
grass on it which made fielding de
cidedly difficult.
But after the third Inning Bard
well braced up and pitched an air
tight game while his field support
improved lmmeansurably and the Ta
bor team never did get a run again.
And Plattsmouth commenced to score
when the others quit and continued
to pound out one run after another
until at the ninth It needed one
run to tie and another to win. These
two were forthcoming by strong and
heady play and the game came to an
end by the score of 7 to 6.
Tabor's pitcher tossed a good game
and held the strong hlt'ers of the
Plattsmouth team dow n In good shape
keeping their hits fairly well scat
tered but the hits they did secure
came when needed and did the Job.
Tabor wants another try at the lo
cal team and the boys are willing.
If Tabor comes to Plattsmouth they
can come. assured of a square deal
and that If they have the best team
they can have the game. They will
play nine men here and no more and
they will find a decent lIamond on
which to play.
Ore noticeable feature of the
game was that the spectators at the
commencement of the game were
strong "rooters" for Tabor while at
the close of the game they were all
for Plattsmouth and roasted the Ta
bor team unmercifully! The cause of
this was the dirty ball which the Ta
bors Indulged In together with the
rotten umpiring which disgusted the
fair minded people In the crowd.
The attendance was large and the
team appreciated the fact that their
braceup and good playing met with
approval. Those from this city at
tending the game returned to this
city on a local to the Junction and
a caboose to this city.
The batting for riattsmouth was
strengthened noticeably toward the
close of the game and Larson distin
guished himself with a three base
hit while Fitzgerald and Droege
each gathered a two base hit to their
credit. Had the game gone another
inning Plattsmouth would have
knocked the Tabor pitcher out of the
box without doubt as they were go
ing strong at the close and their two
winning runs came as a result of
clever playing coupled with good hit
ting. Th bnvs are renorted to have
made arrangements for a Sunday
game In this city with the Nebraska
City Minks in the near future and
it will be a contest worth going miles
to see. The MInk3 will have to iook
to their laurels although they have
recently taken a brace and are now
playing the best ball in the league
right now. They will find Platts
mouth a hard nut to crack though
when they come together this time
and Plattsmouth Intends to make
the Minks know that there has been
some ball game.
A dato with the .Lincoln Stars on
the Lincoln grounds has also been
arranged and If possible an excur
sion from this city will run to that

funeral service followed that of the
Episcopal church and was quite im
presslve in its simplicity.' The Ber
mon of Canon Burgess was a noble
tribute to the sweet soul which had
passed from earth and It contained
many words of comfort and cheer for
those who were left behind. It was
brief but a beautiful tribute to the
great worth of the deceased who pure
and spotless life furnished an inspir

There were a great many floral

Luther's FARM Special
is one of those indispensable farm tools. To the farmer
who is discriminating, and looks at quality instead of
price, who wants the BUST whether he buys machinery,
clothing, shoes or food stuff. To such a one, LUTH
F.R'S FARM SPECIAL will strongly appeal. Up to
the time we put out this great labor saving tool he had
to be content with the old, slow-cutting grindstone or
unsatisfactory emerv grinder, but now he can have the
service of the most perfect farm tool sharpening device
ever invented. There is not a tool used about the farm
that is superior to our FARM SPF.CIAL GRIXDF.R as
a labor saver. It sharpens everything in one-twentieth
the time it would take on the grindstone. The grind
stone cuts so slow that you would prefer to work with a
dull tool rather than endure the backache and HARD
WORK of keeping tools sharp on it.
IT IS KASY to sharpen tool on the Farm Special.
Your ten-year-old hoy will tell vou it is fun to sharpen
everything on this FARM SPECIAL GRIXDKR.
County Commissioner Fredrich
Gives Order for Purchase
From Saturday' lally.
The war which nas been raging
between County Surveyor Patterson
and the county commissioners bids
fair to come to an end now as the
commissioners this morning ordered
him the instruments he has been
lighting for. Some time ago they
purchased on trial a set of second
hand Instruments from Orlando Tefft
at Avoca, but the Instruments did
not suit the surveyor w ho had them
tested by a competent man at Omaha
w ho pronounced them to be badly In
need of repair. Under these condi
tions It was found that the cost of
be Instruments and the repairs would
be more than the cost of the new set
and the commissioners capitulated
and today ordered for his use:
One No. 76 Surveyors Transit and
tripod. .
One No. D05 New York Levellns
Three No. 534 Flag staffs, 6, 8
and 10 feet long.
The origin of the dispute between
Ihe surveyor and the commissioners
was when he demanded that the
county furnish instruments to run
his office with. This the commis
sioners refused to do and he final. T
went Into . district court where he
asked a writ of mandamus to com
pel the commissioners to furnish the
required Instruments. The case wns
fought and tried before Judge Travis
who Issued a writ requiring the pur
chase but giving the commissioners
time to rent or buy instruments be
fore the writ went into effect. This
the commissioners failed to do and
the writ became effective. Then fol
owed the purchase of the Instruments
from Tefft and on rejection the above
order was made for new Instruments
from the Gurley people hi New York.
The Gurley Instruments are generally

From Frlilay'i Pally.
Yesterday afternoon Win. Ketch,
a farmer living about one mile south
of Nehawka, was found dead In his
hayfleld where he had been at work.
Presumably the man had died of
heart disease as he was found upon
a haystack which he was working
on. There was nothing to Indicate
foul play or other than natural death
and no Inquest was considered neces
sary. He leaves a wife and three
children. He was quite well known
lu his neighborhood and a highly re
spected citizen. The discovery of his
death came while the Republican
convention was In session at Union
and a number of the delegates and
spectators hurried to the field where
the remains were found.
Joseph Mullln, Charles tlalley, Cap.
Aldrlch and Win. Leffler were a part
of the Stove Creek delegation to the
Democratic county convention, com

Narrow Fschih.
The friends of John W.' Stelnhart
of Nebraska City, In this city can ex
tend him their congratulations on a,
narrow escape from death which took
place yesterday. The-accident which
happened at Sutton, Neb., was occa
sioned by Steinhart's automobile be
ing struck ou a crossing by a freight
train which had just left the Sutton
yards and which was moving at a low
rate of speed. The freight struck the
rear wheels of the auto and hurled it
to one side wrecking the car and in
juring the occupants. The aeeldeut
Is said to have been occasioned by
the caiiessness of the chauffeur who
thought he had plenty of time to get
across the crossing lu front of the.
approaching train. Fortunately none
of the party was badly hurt but their
escape from at least serious Injury Is
little short of a miracle. The Injured
John W. Stelnhart, bruised about
the face.
Mrs. John W. Stelnhart, bruised
about face and right knee.
Mrs. If. T. Van Wyck Denner, th
most seriously injured of the party.
Fracture of the left arm above th
elbow; cheek bone gashed.
Miss Louise Coe, slightly cut about
the forehead.
Walter Armstrong, chauffeur,
bruised about the thigh, being caught
under the overturned machine.
The train which hit the auto stop
ped and the party was taken to th
office of a physician where their In
juries were cared for. Later they
returned to their home by train.
Judge Travis will hold district
court here on Saturday, July 23, 1910
having adjourned until that date.
