Boosters and Sigma Chi Fraternity
Team of Lincoln Make Even
Break on Games.
Charley Johnson's Boosters
took a base ball game from the
team representing the Sigma Chi
fraternity of Lincoln Saturday af
ternoon on the local grounds by
a score of 5 to 3. The contest
was filled with errors and was de
cidedly a ragged game, although
the local team played a fair game,

big smoke for the Boosters, being
exceptionally good, ten of the
Greek letter boys retiring on

shortstop. Smith look his out

McCauley, who followed him,

which ended (he agony.
In the, second inning, Mason, to
show what, he could do, proceeded
to strike out Hyde, Potter and
Fuller, in order. The locals were
unable to score in their half, al
though Mann reached third base.
D. Arries fell a victim to the
"spit" ball of Mr. Potter and B.

The balloon, which had been
waiting for the preceding innings,
made a fine ascension in the third,
and before the Sigma Chi boys
could settle down the Boosters

Lincoln visitors retired in one,

then the fun began. Connors
knocked a high fly to right field,

Smith, and was followed by
Charles Ault, who proceeded to
place a nice safe one through

who caught for the visitors, got
his baiting eye to working and
lined out a two-bagger that,

close and exciting and drew a
large-sized crowd to see the
Sigma (mi's do battle with the
Boosters, and after I he smoke of

winners by a score of i to .1. The

The work of the locals was not
as fast as that of the Saturday
contest and several errors and
misjudgrnents gave the contest
to the visitors. Connor pitched
a good game and should have won
if he had received good support.
The college team was represented
na the mound by Owen Frank, and
while his work was not partic

in the hole and enabled his team

The celebration yesterday of
the twentieth anniversary of the
erecting of the T. J. Sokol Turner
hall in this city was one that was
argely attended by the members
of the society and their friends
and an afternoon of much enjoy
ment was participated in.
The program in the afternoon
opened with a concert by the Hol
ly orchestra in the main audit
orium, and a few minutes later
the curtain was rolled up, disclos
ing the committee and speakers
on the stage. William Holly, the
president of the local society,
acted as chairman, and after a
few remarks introduced Mayor
John P. Sattler, who, in a short
and well limed address, welcomed
the visilors to the city and ex
pressed his pleasure at being
present on this occasion and also
his appreciation of the value of
the Bohemians as citizens. He
then read the address made at the
opening of the ball twenty years
ago by Charles M. Butler, at that,
time mayor of the city.
The speech of the mayor was
followed by a selection from the
Omaha quartet, which accom
panied I he theatrical company
here, and I heir singing made a
great, hit with the large crowd.
A very interesting and pleasing
address was delivered by Joseph
Slerba of Omaha, being a repeti
tion of the lecture given by Kmil
Bousky at the opening of the hall,
and in the address the history of
the Sokols was traced from the
time of the Homans down to the
present day and was one of much
historical value, and while the
speech was quile lengthy, the
speaker held the attention of his
auditors to the close. Following
this the Omaha quartet again
favored the gathering with one of
their pleasing numbers, and the
crowd then moved out to the
spacious and beautiful park,
where a pleasant time was had
visiting and everybody enjoyed
themselves to the limit.
For the evening's entertain
ment Ihe Omaha Dramatic club,
under the direction of Joe Mik,
gave a production in Bohemian of
the comedy, "The Chocolate
Soldier," and it was equally as
pleasing as the English version,
and Ihe situations in the play
were unchanged and kept, the
audience in a continuous laugh
from start, to finish and the differ
ent parts were ably handled by
the actors, who are among the
best in the metropolis. After the
play a social dance was enjoyed
for a few hours by tho young poo
pie and the strains of the or-
cheslra drew many of the older
ones out on the floor to trip the
light fantastic for a few minutes.
The occasion as a whole was
one very pleasing to everyone and
those attending had one of the
times of their lives and felt that
to meet with these hardy rep
resentatives of the Bohemian
nationality was one that could not
be overlooked and their only re
gret was that the anniversaries
do not, occur more frequently.

Always the Home of Satisfaction
the beauties of nature, the judge
turned the prow of his land ship
homeward, which he kept at a
speed of about 25 knots per hour,
until he was within about a league
of his own domicile, and was ris
ing over a gentle swell of some of
Cass county's $150 per acre land
when' the engine showed indica
tions of that tired feeling which
comes in the spring. With each
foot on some kind of lever to in
crease the speed, and both hands
grasped firmly on the steering ap
paratus, like the gallant land tar
that he is, the man of law and the
adept, with marriage ceremonies,
assayed to navigate the hill just
this side of where W. T. Adams
lives, and with one of the four
passengers pumping gasoline, the
good ship hove over the crown of
the hill in just thirty minutes af
ter it, had left the foot thereof.
With the hill behind them, the
good auto, "Titanic," picked up
its heels like a cyote and ran like
a scared rabbit until they had
passed the farm home of Charles
E. Cook, when it went slower and
slower until the wheels seemed as
though they would stop, and they
did stop and stayed stopped.
The judge, being somewhat of a
doctor, dismounted and made a
thorough investigation, and after
taking all the symptoms into con
sideration, he concluded that the
animal had died from a lack of
that life-giving fluid gasoline.
In the last sad moments of the
dying monster the paroxysm of
pain at the departure of the last
spark of life was so great that the
groanings were so loud that it at
tracted the attention of the neigh
bors, who came running to offer
what assistance they could.
Among the crowd which quickly
collected was seen Ihe round and
smiling face of Charles Cook, who
offered to furnish some gasoline
which they had used to clean some
clothing in, but the discreet judge,
while he thanked the kind-hearted
farmer, refused the proffer.
Just then sounded the "honk,
honk" of the car of Sheriff Quin-
ton, who coming up, otTered to
undergo a surgical operation or
the transfusion of gasoline from
the tank of his car to that of the
The Way Auto Gives Trouble Just

This time it is the engine of
Judge Beeson's auto which dies.
With all the eclat of an aristocrat,
the versatile and gracious judge,
harnessed his motor car, and with
the new paint shining resplendent
in the afternoon's sun, he brought
the machine around, loaded all
the family and a number of visit
ors and were away to the country
on a pleasure trip.
For a while all went as merry
as a marriage bell. They were
overjoyed at. the way the farming
districts looked, just like a pic
ture, much of the promise of the
coming harvest, reminding one of
the glimpse which Moses got
from the top of Mount Nebo when
he viewed the landscape o'er.
After feasting themselves on
dead "Titanic." As the judge con
sidered this a hazardous risk, he
suggested that the sheriff go to
the city post haste and riding like
John Gilpin, for gasoline.
While the sheriff was gone the
car of George Dovey rolled up to
the spot where the party were
beleaguered, making the offer of
transfusion, which was respect
fully declined. While awaiting
the return of the sheriff there
came to the judge something of
the meaning of the parable of the
"Foolish Virgins," who had their
lamps trimmed and burning but
no oil in their vessel he the
same way, with his engine run
ning but no gas in his tank.
Three minutes after the sheriff
returned and had given the ani
mal a drink the party were down
town and happy as larks, wiser
for their experience, but still

mistake was one easy to make.
