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. BRIDGE CLUB ENTERTAINED AT THE BAYLOR HOME From Friday's Dally. 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. I 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. (.Nothing personal in this re mark.) Union Ledger. 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. ENTERTAINS IN HONOR OF HER DAUGHTER. MRS. CHARLES S. STONE 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 ami t lie guesis fell that it. was cerlainly ent on casion. a rare treat to be pres- iiiis pieasureanie oc- JIave you tried the Forest, Rose flour? If not, why not? It is tho best flour on the market and is sold by all dealers. H 4 MEETING AT THE TENT LAST T From Friday's Dally. 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. . J. V. EGENBERGER IS SURPRISED ON HER BIRTHDAY From Frlday'a Dally.

During the evening musi cal selections were given by the different members of the crowd, which added greatly to the enjoy inent of the occasion, and at an 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. . To Undergo Operation. This morning Mrs. F. W.

He was on the street yesterday about, 1:30 and it. .was noticed he seemed very much excited, nervous ami irrit able, hut nothing was thought of Hie matter until, on his return home, he became irrational and it became necessary lo summon medical aid to look after him. The Rev. John Williams of Oma ha, representing Ihe Hishop of Nebraska, arrived last evening on No. 2 and look charge of the care of Ihe unfortunate man, and a trained nurse will be brought here, probably today, to care for him until he has recovered suf ficiently lo be removed lo a place where he can spend a few months in complete rest and where he will not be disturbed.
