The Apple Market. '
The apple market seems to be
way off in Cass county' at the
present lime. The prices offered
are not sufficient to pay the fann
ers for gathering them and bring
ing I hem to oy ii. Man are feed
ing their surplus apples lo the
hogs. There are some very fine
winter apples, but the market has
not vet opened for this class, and
the market will have to raise
somewhat on winter apples before
the fanners will offer any for sale.
Louie lUieinackle brought lo Ihis
olllce Saturday from the orchard
of t'nele Hen Becktuau Iwo of the
largest and prettiest apples of the
Wolf (ier variety we ever laid
eves upon, lint we are informed
there is scarcely any demand for
this quality. Apples are plenty in
Cass county, sure.

EXCITING FIGHT !AT
One Man Put to Sleep Another's
Nose Was Broken With a
From Tuesday's Dally.
A spectacular ligbl took place
yesterday afternoon at the ball
grounds while West Oak
Plaltsmoul h were playing.
The light grew out of a request
by Clyde Jones to the youngest
son of B. D. Worthing, winy was
carrying water, to give him a
drink. 'Flie Worthing boy was
earning water for the two teams,
and refused to give Jones a drink.
The father of the boy said to his
son: "Let him go down to the
spring and get his own water."
Thereupon, according to one
story thai is told, Jones went over
and struck Worthing on the jaw,
sending him to dreamland. It, re
quired a bucket of water to re
vive him to consciousness. At
this point all three of the Worth
ing boys entered the fight.. The
oldest boy, a young man about 18
years old, hit Jones across the
nose with a ball bat, breaking the
bones of the ridge of the nose, ac
cording to report.
Others picked up ball bats, some
to help Jones, others to help the
Worthings, but the two sides were
separated before any furl her
damage was done.
According to the story told by
Jones and his friends, Worthing
hit him first, but the police do not
give much credence to this, ac
count of the affair. Worthing is
generally censured for "bulling
in" into the affair.
No arrests have been made as
yet. II is said that Jones has
gone to Colorado.
