Boosters and pitched iil od:rod

umpire in ye.-derdny's game they
miuhl have been playing yet. as in
Ihe ovenlh inning tho "limp"

'Tho Sumlay pa-mo was a ragged
contest, full of errors, in which
tho Orkin's managed to pot away
Willi the big end and hanol tho
local boys .-everal rims as a re
sult of their poor judgment and
inability to :.- hobl of the ball.

Tho ba-o ball game yesterday
afternoon was one that warmed
the hearts of the fans, for it was
surely as good a game as could
be seen anywhere that the great
national sport is plaved, and
those who attended felt well re
paid for their bravinsr the wind
and dust, as the Boosters and
Frank. Quigloy's pels certainly
played a gilt-edged game, and
until Ihe close if was a question
who would win.
For six innings the contest was
without a sroro, with both Con
nor and Holland of Ihe A. (). U.
YV.'s work in well and with good
support keeping the score down.
The vi-itors broke the ioo in their
half of the seventh, when Saup
rapped out. a two-batrger to lefi
Hold and was "saeriliood to third
by Holland, and scored when Hall
biffed the ball for a single.
Daughorty, who followed Hall,
was safe at first, and on the de
cision of the umpire giving Ken
nedy a base on balls, Hall was
forced in, but the decision was
very much disapproved of riy all
who saw the game, as Connor
was clearly entitled to a strike on,
(lie man. This, combined with
several other decisions against
Ileal while batting, aided ma
terially in preventing' t-he. locals
fr..m taking the game.
Plattsmouth scored its one run
in the ninth, when Connor was
safe at. lirst. on an error by Mo
Andrews, stole .second and came
in with a run on Ihe two-bagger
of Ilea! to confer held, but this
ended the suspense, as Parriott,
who followed, struck out. The

A dastardly outrage was per
petrated last evening on Wash
ington avenue when some pari
or parties, without fear the ia
or respect for themselves, de
liberately "barked" about eight oi
tho lino young trees that wore
recently set out along that thor
oughfare. The trees were cut with
a large knife or hatchet and the
work was evi.lently not that oi
any child, as the branches of tht
trees were broken down in a man
ner that indicated that a person
of heighth had done the michiot
and the lacerations on Ihe bark oi
the trees were of such a nature as
to indicate that the work had
been clone with the purpose of
killing; them, and should the
parties doing the work be found
I hey sltould be made to suffer the
severest penally that the law can
inflict, and a reward should be
offered for their arrest and con
viction This is the second time
the city authorities have planted
trees along Washington avenue,
and Ihe fust time a number of
the Irees were broken oil' by chil
dren: going- along the street, but
this ease is clearly one or pure
unadulterated meanness and
ought to be investigated and
some action taken in' the matter,
as it litis aroused considerable in
dignation among- the residents in
that part of tin" city.
The announcement appears in
Ihe Omaha papers of yesterday
of Ihe forthcoming, marriage o!
a former Plattsmouth girl,. Miss
Kathryn (irace, the daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. James ( race of
South Omaha. Miss Grace is a
native Plattsmouth girl, having
been born in this city, and re
sided here until some few years
ago, when the family removed to
South Omaha, and Is a young
lady of much charm of character
and Ihe friends oT the family in
this city will learn with g-roat
pleasure of her approaching

early in October and I he fortun

An Auto Driven by John Falter
Strikes Buggy and Injures
the Occupant.
From Tuesday s Daily
Last evening- a few minutes be
fore 9 o'clock a collision occurred
on Aortn mxiii street, nciween an
.automobile driven .by John Falter
and a buggy in which Max Pries
was driving- up the street. The
accident occurred just opposite
Ihe Goring- residence, and the
automobile had just turned into
Sixth street from Kim. and was
running south, and was, accord
ing: to the story told by pries
without any" lights on tho front
to guide its course. Pries saw the
err roimnir onto turn and Turner
ut to permit the machine to pass.
but the car came on and crashec
into the hf.rso and buggy, skin-
ning the horse up and damaging
the buggy to some extent, while
Max was thrown clear out of the
vehicle, and from the nature
his bruises it seems likely that he
truck the fender of tho car in
falling, but there were no bones
u-okon and tho examination of
he injured man failed to reveal
any internal ln.iuries. it. was
thought at first that the man had
received injuries that might re
ult very seriously, but this
morninsr the patient seems to be
celt ins? along- in first-class shape
and will probably escape serious
The harness on the horse was
torn up some as a result of the
collision and the buggy' will re
quire some repairing- before it
an be used. It is most fortunate
that the automobile was not running-
at a high rale of speed, as
if it had been Mr. Pries would
have undoubtedly been killed. Al
ter the accident the injured man
was conveyed to his homo on
North Sixth street and medical
assistance summoned to ad
minster to his needs.
This accident brings forcibly
to mind the fact that the regula
tion of Ihe traffic in t his city is
becoming quite a problem and
that some action in regard to
making all vehicles, either auto
mobiles or carriages and
wagons, observe more strict
ly the law in regard to driving-
along- the street, as in the
present reckless manner it is
eertrain, sooner or later, to result
in the serious injury or. death of
someone, if the matter is not at
tended to. There are rules gov
erning the sides of street on
which ingoing- and outgoing
vehicles should travel, as well as
one in regard to motor vehicles
carrying lights to protect the pub
lic and other parties driving- on
the highway, and it is quite
noticeable of evenings that this
rule is not complied t with by a
large number of drivers.

Death of Ivan White Removes One
of the Best Citizens of
Cass County.
From Tuesday's Dally.
."Death loves a sinning mark,"
and yesterday morning the grim,
messenger took from our rnidsf
one of tho foremost citizens of
the eastern' sect ion of Cass coun
ty, Ivan S. White, who for many
years was one of Ihe prominent
farmers of Rock UJuff precinct,
but who for the last few years has
resided in Murray.
Mr. White, on his retirement

to Plattsmouth, whore ho pur
chased property, but later decid
ed to move to Murray, among
more familiar scones, and secur
ed him a homo there, and had re
sided in that place since thru
time. Mr. While for Ihe pn-t few
vears has been sutrering greatly
from cancer, and despite all that
medical skill or loving bands
could do, the disease co.i! iniicl
its ravages until' it made his re
covery impossible and he suffered
patiently until the end brought
him relief.
Tho loss of Mr. White will be
greatly felt throughout Ihe coun
ty, where he was so well and
favorably known, and where bo
had resided since 1850, and his
passing will leave a place hard to
lill, as he was one of those strong,
sturdy men who havo made tho
tate of Nebraska all it is, and
his advce and watchfulness in
Ihe early days of Ihe young stale
;ind county contributed much to
its material welfare.
Ivan S. White was born in
Davis county, Missouri, May ID,
1835. and was reared on a farm
mi Livingston county, Missouri,
crowing to manhood in this sec
tion of the country, and he farm
ed there for himself for two years

such untold value to his ventures

but resided there onlv a few
months, removing to Nebraska in
August, 1850, and located in RocT;
Bluffs, then a flourishing little
city, engaging in farming- near
'hat point, and as a result of his
ability and watchfulness he was
ible lo accumulate quite a neat
fortune for his old ago. During
last years of his life on the
tarm no was- engaged quae ex
tensively in the raising of stock.
During the civil war Mr. While
enlisted in the Second Nebraska
cavalry and served with much
credit to himself in lhat regiment
for eight months. While a resi
dent of Livingston county, Mis
souri, ho was married on Feb
ruary 1!8, 185-5, lo Miss Anna
Smith, and as a result . of that
union two children, .Mrs. David
