South Side Meets Waterloo by
Score of 8 to 10, and Everyone
Blamed for Defeat.
From Friday's Daily.
Again have the fates decided
against the youth side of the city
on the base ball diamond, as the
result of yesterday's contest will
show. The game was played on
a muddy, slow lield, and many of
the south siders are claiming; this
as a reason for their defeat, while
others claim that the hitting of
Judge Beeson was the cause of
their Waterloo on the Held. The
score at the close stood 10 to 8
in favor of the north side, but
they were compelled to light hard
to secure the victory.
In the opening inning ''Old
Hickory" appeared on the mound
for the south siders and his de
struction of the boys from the
north side was something fierce,
man after man being swept down
before his terrible spit ball, but in
the third he caught a ball with
his bare hand and retired from
the game, being replaced by Jess
Warga, a former league star, but
after several innings it was evi
dent that his star had set. The
northsiders used Maytield for
pitcher and ''Red'' Lair fur catch
and were forlunale jn striking
out, their onnononls, as whenever
an opportunity was presented the
fielders sidestepped any balls
coming their way.
Judge Tleesmi was the main
star for the northsiders, making
safe hits every time at bat. and
his work with the stick contribut
ed largely to the success of his
team. Louie Kgenberger display
ed a great batting eye, securing
two safe hits in-the first, three
times at bat, but was noways left
on bases. Guy Reese did the
catching for the soul hsiders
whenever he could connect with
the ball. The line-up was as fol
lows: North Side Lair, catch; May
field, pilch; Nemelz. first; Mar
shall, R second; Marshall,, F.
third; Rosenerans, short; Heeson,
right; Keyle, left.
South Side Reese, catch; Hin
richsen, Warga, pilch; Ault, first;
Smith, second; McMaken, third;
Hasson, short; Sandin, right;
Halt, left; Kgenberger, catch.

Last evening the Kridge club
was entertained in a most charm
ing manner at the home of Mr.
and Mrs. C. W. Haylor and an
evening of much enjoyment was
spent by the company oj" bridge
enthusiasts. The house was
decorated in a very handsome
manner with roses and white
syringas, making a very beauti
ful appearance and adding much
to the enjoyment of the evening.
There were three tables tilled by
the club members and much
pleasure was derived from the
friendly rivalry in the game. At
an appropriate hour the hostess,
assisted by Mrs. Kva Reese,
served a most tempting and de
licious luncheon and one that
was much appercialed by the
guests, who departed for their
homes at a late hour, feeling
deeply indebted to their enter
tainers for the splendid time af
forded. Case on All Day.
From Friday's Daily.
The lime of the district court
was occupied yesterday in hear
ing the case of the First National
Hank vs. Jefferson dross. The
case is where the bank is seeking
hi hold some land purchased by
Cross from the J. I), thick estate
for a note made by Theodore
Uurk. The case was hotly fought
and a large number of witnesses
were examined by both sides, and
the arguments submitted to the
court by the attorneys on the dif
ferent sides. The land in dispute
is located near Fnion. The case
was continued over till Saturday.
That New Jail?
From Friday's Dally.
While in l'lattsniouth Tuesday
i morning we observed a large tent
at the north . side of the court
house to be used for union meet
ings of 'the churches. Some of
those court house sinners face
tiously informed us that, it was
the new county jail for which we
fought, bled and died a few times
two months ago. The tent is real
ly for religious services, con
sequently would no doubt seem
like a prison to some of those
wicked fellows who work six days
only and use the next day for
fishing and base ball. The min
isters selected an ideal location
scoot the sinners right out of the
court house into the tabernacle.

Only Little Over Three Weeks Till
the Great Natal Day and
Nothing Done.
From Saturday's Dally.
The proposition of holding a
Fourth of July celebration here,
which was agitated by the Com
mercial club at their meeting
some time ago, appears to have
failed of developing and the great
natal day in Plaltsnioulh will in
all probability be devoid of any
celebration. The neighboring
cities of Gleiiwood and Weeping
Water will celebrate the day in
first -class shape, and it is to be
regretted thai greater interest
has not, been taken in the matter
here, as (his is a point to which
everyone in this section of the
county would prefer to come if
given some inducement to do so.
II is understood that the band
here expects to go to Weeping
Water to furnish the music on
that day, and quite likely a large
number of our citizens will take
advantage of that fact to cele-
brate there.
A great many have hung back
on the Fourth of July celebra
tion, as well as the band concerts
because they could not see an im
mediate return of their donalion
in profits taken in, but they
should remember that if a cele
bration or concert brings the
people to town it, is up to the
merchant to offer the induce
ments to the farmers o come
into their stores to purchase
goods. . On the hand concert
question many are dissatisfied
because the concerts are not to
be held down on Main street,
among the cobblestones and dirt,
instead of in the Nigh school yard
or the park, as they should be.
The many inconveniees that have
turned up in previous concerts on
the streets should demonstrate to
evervone the niter uselessness of
trying to hold Hie concerts on the
streets and follow the plan out
lined of holding them on High
school hill.
At her beautiful home in the.
Second ward Mrs. Mary Allison
entertained yesterday afternoon
at a kensington in honor of her
daughter, Mrs. Charles S. Stone,
of Yampa, Colorado, who is her
guest for a short time. The ladies
spent the afternoon in plying the
busy needle and a general social
good time until late in the after
noon, when a very tempting two-
course luncheon was served by
the hostess, which greatly
augmented the pleasure of the
company, as the hospitality of
this worthy lady is well known

At the tent last evening a good
ly crowd greeted the management
who are conducting the revival
campaign. The evening, as far
as the weather was concerned,
was not all that might have been
desired, but better weather is
hoped for and expected. The
music was excellent and the sing
ing, while in books which the
public are not accustomed to
use, was well supported by the
congregation and the chorus,
which was in the process of or
ganization, did splendid work.
Prof, (iilmore, who has charge of
the chorus work, is a man who is
abundantly capable of doing the
work assigned him. We may look
for the best of work in that line.
Walter Klinger, the soloist, con
vinced those who listened to him,
of his ability along that line, and
is lo the music in all its branches
we may iook lor good enter lain-
ment, as well as the inspiration
for the work of the meetings that
shall come from the work.
Rev. C. 0. Smith, the evanglist,
in his speaking, is very pleasant
and earnest and can be heard
throughout the entire tent. His
enunciation is of the best and his
manner of handling a subject is
one which appeals to the people.
For a number of years during the
earlier portion of his life he was
a railroad man and his sym
pathies are with the man who
works, and it will be a pleasure
for all to bear him.
Everybody is welcome to these
meetings and it is desired that all
will lake advantage of Ihe oc
casion, as tney will lie aminuani-
ly repaid in many ways for their
attendance. The meetings will
convene at 8 o'colek, but will not
continue late, closing so that
everyone can get home at a sea
sonable hour.

appropriate hour the guests un
covered a vast array of tempt
ing eatables that they had brought
with them and proceeded to put
on a most delicious luncheon
that would please any epicurian,
and the occasion will be one long
to be remembered by all the
guests, as well as the recipient of
the surprise. Mrs. Kgenberger
received several handsome ant
costly remembrances of the event,
including a very elaborate cut
glass dish, the gift of the invad
ing party. There were some forty-
eight in the crowd that descended
on their friend, and in departing
they wished her many more happy
returns of the day.
