THE WRESTLING MATCH ftT LOUISVILLE PRONOUNCED BEST EVER HELD THERE About One Hundred Attend From Plattsmouth and al! Pronounce the Event a Great Success, and They Speak in Glowing Terms of Their Hospitable Entertainment There. From Friday's Dally. The wrestling match that took place in the city of Louisville last orcning was a grand success from overy standpoint. Owing to the untiring diligence of the manage ment and its friends in advertis ing the event, it was hy far the best attended of any similar con test ever held in Cass county. All the events were interesting, and tery man of the one hundred or more who attended from Platts mouth agreed that he received the oatire worth of his money. The evening's entertainment opened with an exhibition of wrestling as an art, by Farmer Burns, former champion of the world, and Pete Rooney, an Oma ha crack wrestler. Farmer Burns also addressed the audience on the benefits and advantages of the game, giving some explanatory remarks concerning technical points. The preliminary match con sisted of an hour's hard milling n the part of Joe Spence, the Louisville amateur, who was matched against Kid Terry of Ne braska City. Terry appeared to be stalling throughout the strug gle, and allowed Spence to as sume and maintain the offensive entirely. The latter made a game ofTort to throw Terry, but the Ne braska City boy was too skillful on the defensive. At the cjid of the hour the match was declared a draw by Referee Cullwan of Mis souri Valley, Iowa. In the main contest of the evening Frank - Sehmarderer of Louisville defeated Albert Doty of Weeping Water in three straight falls, the match listing only about ten minutes. Doty, who was con Idcnt of success and had been 11 HOT RENT A POSTOFFICE BOX? People Should Be Slow to Critize Postmaster, When Does Noth ing to Lessen Troubles. Not so very long ago a prom inent business man of Platts mouth whose economical business tiothods preclude the rental of a kox at the postofllco, had busi ness at a distant city, and left an rder al the postolllee to forward all mail to his address in the city, where his business called him temporiarily. In the hustle of the general delivery business the clerk of the local office relumed to the gentleman a letter he had himself written to his wife, and at the end f a three days' stay, when Ins re tarded to Plattsmouth, the gentle man had hard work explaining to his wife his cold indifference in ever writing her a word during his absence. And feeling some what peeved, the economical gen tleman hurried to the general de livery of the postofliee and pro weeded to roast the department and its manner of serving the public and especially the afore said IMatlsmouth man. If the Journal had its way a good, honest democrat would be dispensing the mail at the Platts mouth office, but we believe in Riving the "devil his due," never theless, and if our friend would take into consideration the various duties of the. postmaster and the difficult position he oc cupies and the trying ordeal with all sorts and conditions of humanity to try to please, he would "haul in his horns," and save his criticism for some fel fow who has more time to listen. Uo might also lessen the troubles of the department if he would se cure a box in which his mail mat ter could be deposited to await his oming, and thus save some of his wn valuable time, that is sonic times taken up hy having to line touted as a winner by some authorities, was badly outclassed by Sehmarderer, the latter hand ling the big fellow with ease and showing the effect of the careful training Farmer Burns had put him through. Doty had only re ceived about four days' training before the contest and was in no such condition as his opponent. There is no doubt but what Louisville has a coiner in the person of Sehmarderer. About one hundred sports boarded the train that left Platts mouth at 6:30, including Terry and his backer, Dolf Kuhlman, and a number of adherents from Ne braska City. The Cass county court house was well represented, nearly all the county officials be ing present. Altogether, it was a good, clean match, and Louisville is to be congratulated upon the way it was conducted. The attendance of a large crowd from Plattsmouth and the excellent treatment they were accorded surely does a lot to promote good feeling and good fellowship. We hope it will not be long before Plattsmouth can offer something in the athletic line. A Jew live wires like T. 14. Par meel, who by his untiring efforts in like enterprises, should be greatly appreciated by the people of Louisville. Those who enjoyed the sport last evening from this city are indebted to him for se curing the special train, as well as the royal manner in which they were entertained. Tom is a hustler when he undertakes an event of this class and nothing but a suc cessful end proves satisfactory to him. ! up and wait window. for his turn at the In Honor of Eleventh Birthday. From Friday's Dally. Yesterday marked the eleventh birthday anniversary of little Miss (trace Beeson, and in order to properly celebrate the event she had invited thirty little girl friends to come to her home after school, at which time she enter tained them al a Valentine parly. For the occasion and in deference to the Valentine season, the pretty parlors of the Beeson home had been very attractively decorated with ropes of little red hearts The little girls spent a very happy afternoon All kinds of games and amusements which the girls like to play were indulged in and which created much merriment and frolic. At 5 o'clock the little girls sat down to the elegant birthday supper prepared in the dining room, and not the least of the many templing danlies was the big birthday cake, which stood in the center of the table lighted with eleven candles, marking the number of years (he little hostess had passed. The little girls all agree that this "eleventh birthday party" was the happiest one they have participated in for some time and wish Grace many more as happy birthdays.
