A Wonderful Woman.
(From Pittsburg (') I- ' '. Jul
Tbere was nothing to startle the
world in the brief Item of news that
came out of Brookline, Mass., yts
terday, announcing that Mrs. Mary
taker Eddy, founder and leader of
the Christian Science denomination,
was quietly observing the eighty
ninth anniversary of her birth, sur
rounded by a few friends at her mod
The item Itself was charac teristic
of the subject. Probably Mrs. Eddy
herself would have preferred that
nothing at all be said about It.
But there is a great deal in the
I.Iain fact that this remarkable wo
man is now rounding out her nine
tieth year, of which the people every
where may well take note.
Seldom do we have presented a
subject more replete with valuable
tuggestions Inspiration, or general up
lift. Mrs. Eddy stands among the fore
most women of her time and genera
tion. Whether or not we subscribe to
the doctrines which she has founded
and maintained, we cannot take from
the credit which rightfully occurs
through her position as one of the
world's workers, as one who has been
devoted to the welfare of others, who
has all but given her life to the cause
Iiy the sheer force of her person

faltering faith In the correctness of
her beliefs, this woman has succeed

of men fail to do. '
Under her leadership and wise

classed among the principal faiths of

is In a most flourishing condition.
Its devotees are as earnest and

llgloV Hundreds of thousands of believers
Lave found comfort in the teachings
of Mrs. Eddy. Men and women, rack
ed with physical and mental pain,
have found peace under the soothing
influence of the Christian Science
They have built up a great and
Influential property, they have made
themselves a factor In the progress
of the nation, and they have made the
world eager to know more about the
wonderful woman who has been their
inspiration through It all.
She appears to the observer as one
who has been inspired with a mission
to bring salvation Into a sln-rldden
world. To her, self-sacrifice seemed
an acceptable portion, and wherever
it has been required of her she has
made It willingly and cheerfully
Throughout It all she has been
moved by a single desire to do some
thing for suffering humanity and to
advance the spiritual welfare of the
Where Is It possible to find any
treater work than this?
Mrs. Eddy's life has been one of
constant effort for her fellow beings.
She has had no selfish alms to ac
complish, no unworthy alms to at
tain, no ulterior motives to shield
with the cloak of religion.
Everything was clone for others
and when she has finally passed to
ier reward those who are left behind
will reap the full benefit of her labor
Mrs. Eddy Is a staunch advocate of
prayer. She believes in the efficacy
of prayer, and upon this belief the
religion she has founded leans more
Btrongly thnn anything else.

perhaps, exemplify this belief to a
greater degree than Is done by the
people of other denominations.

ciples ami in the mission which she
was sent into the world to perform.
Mrs. Eddy will not be classed as
"great" In the same manner as other
women of her time. She has not fill
ed the public mind with those things
that are of earth earthy.
ller's is a greatness of love, of
heart, of mind, of faith, of all the
higher elements that are too often
crushed beneath the overpowering
weight of mundane things.
She will always be known as the
onteniporary of such magnificent wo
men and world's workers as Harriet
Ileecher Stowe, Queen Victoria, Jane
Addams, Helen Gould and their kind.
of which there are few.
Who can estimate the real value of
such a woman's work. It Is as ini
mitable as the' universe Itself.
Herself, the stanchest advocate of
continued prayer, Mrs. Eddy doubt
less will be the subject of thousands
of fervent petitions to the throne of
grace at this time.
And the burden of these prayers
will be that her useful life may be
spared to the people for other an
niversaries such as that which took
place at Brookllne yesterday.

The Plattsmouth ball team kept up
their pace yesterday in a nine Inning
game with the Townsend Gun club,
and came out with six scores to one
l for the visiting team. The game
would have been a shut-out for the
visitors had It not been for one error
made by the Plattsmouth players in
the last Inning In getting the ball to
first, the fielder making a short
throw and the ball failed to reach
the baseman in time to shut out the
one score made by the team.
The home battery was Hulfish In
the box and Pete Herold behind the
bat, and their work was as nearly
perfect as possible. Hulfish pitched
a "two hit game." The game was
ably umpired by Louis Relnackle,
there being no protests made to any
of his decisions.
Members of the home team making
scores were: t'eai z, ritzgeram i,
McCauley 1, Mason 1, Herold 1. For
the visitors, Tabor made the solitary
score for that side. The boys mak
ing hits were: Peal. Fitzgerald, Hul
fish, Bardwell, Mason and Mann each
knoc king a two bagger.
The visitors making hits were Kane
and McNamara. In the field work
Mann caught two remarkable files
which brought forth the wild appro
val of bleachers. Taken all around
It was a fine game that our boys
put up, and too much praise cannont
be said of the fine work of Bardwell
on third, Hulfish as pitcher and
Herold behind the bat.
This week, commencing Wednes
day, for three days, the team will
conte at the Malvern carnial for first
place among four teams, me oinerB
among the teams being Sterz Tri
umphs of "Omaha, and the Merchants
of Council Bluffs. The purses being
$120, first; $80, second; $60, third;
and $4 0 for the fourth prize.
Mr. L. Relnackle of this place has
been employed by the association at
Malvern to umpire the entire series
of games of which there will be two
played each day. Our fellows expect
to carry off one of the good pieces
of money at this meet.
On August 25 the team will go to
Tabor to be In a three days tourna
ment for a purse of $400, divided
thus: $150, $100, $80 and $70.
Plattsmouth this year has an unus
ually strong team and out of twenty
six games played our boys have only
lost four. If we had gotten Into the
Mink league this season, we would
have been up near the head of the
list. A very fair crowd was present
to witness the game yesterday, much
arge, In fact, than expected.
Visits South Dakota.
Henry Zuckweiler returned from
South lJakota Saturday afternoon,
where he purchased a quarter section
of land a year ago. Mr. Zuckweiler is
well pleased with the country In
Hand county where he was and says
that land has advanced at least $4
per acre since he purchased his last
year. He saw alfalfa there from
which two . crops had been cut and
the third crop was almost ready to
cut, wheat was better than a half
crop and other crops were better than
wheat. At present Mr. Zuckweiler Is
located about fourteen miles from
town but a railroad has been sur
veyed from Hitchcock In Beadle to
Onlda in Sulla county which will put
a station within five miles of his
land. A good rain fell there a week
ago when Mr. Zuckweiler first ar
rived, and crops of all kinds were In
better condition than here.
