Having been fortunate enough to secure the agency for the Blau-Gass, we
are going to reduce our immense Hardware Stock and evenually close it out entirely, retaining only the
Heating and Plumbing end. In order to accomplish this quickly we are making the prices quoted in this
advertisement. This sale will coutinue uniil we find a buyer for our stock and will give you an opportu
nity to get goods at less prices than they were ever offered in Plattsmouth before.
It is impossible to itemize prices on every item, as it, would take over a month to go through and ite
mize everything separate. We wish to state that outside of heating and plumbing material we are not
holding back anything, but will discount every article, as we are positively going out ot the hardware end
ot our business. With the new line that we have taken it will take all the time we have to give it proper
attention, and if there anything you need in the hardware line you would do well to look over our stock.
We are going to advertise our stock for sale in the leading papers and very likely will have a buyer for
the entire stock in a very short time, so if there is anything you need it would be well to get it at once.

GAME A CORKER
A Large Crowd Attends the Game
and Had Lots of Fun and
The ba.se ball game played yes
terday between north and south
Mde Main street business men was
ji playful success and was attend
ed by a large crowd of rooters.
The line-up was as follows:
South Side McMaken, catch,
and Taylor, pitch, with A. L.
Henry as substitute for Baylor
and Scott for McMaken; Fricke,
first base; Brady, second base;
Herold, third base; Smith, short
stop; Warga, left Held; Wescott,
center field, with Bernie as sub
stitute; Jones right field, with
Halt as substitute.
North Side Schneider, catch;
Mayfield, pitch; J. Ivcrson Henry
as sub for Mayfield, who was in
jured in the fifth inning; Goos,
first base; Nemetz, second base;
Patterson, third base, with J. Fal
ter as sub; Pollock, shortstop;
Sayles, left field, with George Fal
ter as sub; Beeson, center field;
Morgan, right field, with McEl
wain as sub.
The north side came to bat first
and scored quite frequently and
remained at bat until the entire
team had batted around. Schneid
er, Nemetz, Pollock, Patterson,
Sayles and Beeson scored. in the
first inning, while Goos never
reached first base. Sayles walked
out to first, four balls going
rapidly by him without a gesture
from Sayles. Six scores was the
result of the first inning for the
north side, the batters being able
lo read the signs of the opposing
battery and blocked their shrewd
est moves. Two scores were run
in by the north side in the sec
ond inning, while a whitewash in
the third was sequel of the inning.
The north siders had no trouble
in finding Pitcher Baylor right
along In the fifth inning Baylor
was relieved by his captain and A.
I.. Henry, the left-handed twirler,
was placed in the box, and at the
end of the inning five more scores
were run in by the north siders.
When the game ended in the mid
tile of the ninth inning the north
siders had run in seventeen
Some of the thrilling plays were
made by Judge Beeson, when, in
the first inning lie knocked a
three-bagger and in the fifth he
caught an innocent fly knocked by
Smith to center field, and bp Me
F.hvain, when he failed to connect
with a fine fly knocked to right
field by Smith in the seventh in
ning. The south siders did some ex
cellent playing. McMaken, the
catcher, proved himself to be the
best kicker on the ground and
frequently called the umpire and!
others down. With all their clever
work at the hat and running bases
they failed to score until the fifth
inning, when scores were made
by Warga and Wescott. Bernie,
Halt, Smith and Warga scored in
Ihe seventh inning and this was
the sum total of the marks made
by the south side.
1 fie cause of the difference in
Ihe score has been attributed to
the absence of Carl Kunsmann,
the pig tail for the south siders,
who had to be in Omaha. Carl
feels that I here should be a re
turn game some time when he can
be in town.
J. E. McDaniel, as water boy for
the south side, was right on his
job, with straw hat and blue bib
overalls, and with plenty of water
for the thirsty players.
Pollock, the Ty Cobb of the
north side team, was the most un
fortunate player in the game and
was struck with the ball no less
than three times, twice by the
pitcher and once by the pig tail,
who struck Bert square on the
Pitcher Mayfield was injured by
a collision with First Baseman
Fricke and had to quit the game
in the fifth inning.
The game was umpired by Dot
son, whose decisions usually
pleased the bleachers.
BASE BALL GAME

That swift playing bunch, the J.
I. Cross team, of Omaha, will be
here next Sunday afternoon to
meet the home team at the city
ball park, in what promises to be
one of the most interesting games
of the season up to the present
time. The J. I. Cross team has
played in this city on numerous
occasions in the past few years,
and while many of the old players
have probably left the team, we
venture the assertion that they
are stronger than ever.
The Red Sox have been doing
some good work the past few
weeks, and are strengthening
themselves considerably by good
practice work, and with the addi
