Fred G. Egenberger, who for
the past few weeks has been con
fined to his home in this city,
was yesterday down town, and his
appearance on the street was the
source of a great deal of pleasure
to his friends, who have been
preatly worried by his illness. Mr.
Egenberger has been suffering
greatly in the past year or two
with rheumatism and stomach
trouble, and has been unable to
be as active as formerly in his

The case of the Manley Co

and defendants. The jury was

dine, George Klinger, jr., W. M.
Cook, Frank Laughlin, G. G. Mei
singer, Frank Sivey, Henry Shoe
maker, Gust Johnson and James
W. Holmes, and the submitting of
he evidence commenced at once.
There was quite a number of wit
nesses placed on the stand by
he plaintiff to testify as to the
oss of the grain shipped from the
elevator to the Omaha market
ver the defendant railroad, and
n cars furnished by the railroad
company and which allowed the
grain to waste, with the result
hat the elevator company seeks

According to custom Governor
Morehead has issued the annual
Arbor day proclamation setting
forth Wednesday, April 22, as the
proper day to set out trees. The
day is fixed by statute, but is an
nually called to the attention of
he people by the executive officer
of the state. The erovernor savs:
On Wednesday, the 22d inst,
which is fixed by statute as Arbor
day, I suggest that we devote a
portion of the day to the planting
of trees, shrubs and vines, and
that the teachers of the state put
forth a special effort to develop
in the minds of their pupils a love
Tor flowers, plants and birds. The
great life of usefulness before
the child calls for more than
mere book instruction. Let them
be taught to deal with real things
and help them develop a love for
beautiful surroundings.
I earnestly urge that this day
be observed in a loyal and public
spirited manner, that we may
show ourselves worthy to be

will be ample to allow all the ten

desire to enter the club, and some
very fine sets are looked forward
to by the enthusiastic members of
the organization. A structure
will be built to be used as a
dressing room, and a shower
bath installed for the use of the
players, where they can clean up
after the contests, and this will
be a most pleasing feature of the
new grounds.
For years there has been a lit

who have been keeping alive the
interest in the game, and they
will now be given an opportunity

the game to their heart's content

Rex Young Improving.
From "Wednesday's Dally.
Albert Young, Sam Pitman and
Bert Root, from Murray, were in
the city a few hours yesterday
levelling looking after some busi
ness matters. Mr. Young informs
us that his brother. Rex, who was
so seriously injured last Satur
day, at which time his team ran
away with him while engaged at
w-ork with a stalk cutter, is get-j
ting along1 nicely, and from pres.
Lnt indications will entirely re-
I cover from his injuries. The
escape was a very narrow one for
Mr. Young, and while he was
thrown from the rear of the cut
ter, he was tangled up in the lines!
in such a manner as to be thrown
against the blades of the cutter,
receiving many wounds in various
portions of the body, several of
wincn were quite deep ana
serious. His many friends will
be pleased to learn that he is
resting easily and permanent re
covery is not far distant.

Suffering From Blood Poison.
From Wednesday's Dally.
W. H. Parsons of this city is
nursing a verv sore hand as the
result of an attack of blood
poison which come on him quit
suddenly. He had the hand in
jured two weeks ago Sunday a
Albia, Iowa, by striking it against
the 'side of a wagon, and at that
time he thought, nothing of the
injury, as it appeared to be only a
slight abrasion of the skin. A
few days ago he noticed a pimple
appearing on the hand, and con
sulting a physician discovered
that he was suffering from blood
poison. The hand lias given the
gentleman a great deal of pain,
but he hopes that it will soon
heal up and allow him the use of
it again.
The Meeting Calls Many Ministers
Here and They Enjoy an
Interesting Conference,
The meeting of the minister's
conference at the Methodist
church has attracted a goodly
number of the different pastors
of this section of the Tecumseh
district. The meeting last even
ing at the church was presided
over by Rev. A. Allan Randall of
Nebraska City, formerly pastor
here, and in his remarks he al-
hnded feelinc-lv to his services in
thp rhurch here and the nleasant
feelinp. he ha(1 fop thp members
of th rhrch. and tmid a elow-
in? lrimite n the choir of the
t church, which has done so much
pastor by their hard work for the
upbuilding of the church.
At the meeting last evening the
conference was afforded an un
expected and very pleasant treat
in having with them Rev. I. B
Schrengost, vice chancellor of the
Weslyan university at University
Place, who delivered a most able
address on the subject of "Wis
doms," and in his address he fol
lowed the development of the
human race and the wonderful
improvements that had been
made in machinery and inven
tions, and he then took up the
development of the human heart
and asked the audience if the
culture of the heart had kept
pace through the years with the
other advances of mankind, and
took for an example the story of
Ruth, pVinting out the rude
scythe with which she gleaned the
grain, with the modern reapers
and binders and showed how the

Sunday Sees the Opening of the
Season Here, When the
Alamitos Play.
The base ball season in Platts
mouth will open on Sunday next
at the Booster ball park, when
our sterling athletes will do bat
tle with the Alamito team of
Omaha, one of the fastest of the
amateur organizations of the me
tropolis, but the boys here feel
that they have got some ball team
themselves and are willing to
take on any of the teams from the
metropolis. The line-up this year
looks mighty good to the lovers
of the great national sport, and
the fans can rest assurred that
the season of 1914 will be one
long to be remembered for the
strong team representing this
city on the diamond.
In Carle and Neitzel the team
?as two excellent catchers, and
Connors on the slab is all that
can possibly be asked. McCauley,
he old veteran, will start the sea
son for the team at first base, but
Smith will be on hand later in
he season to assist in this job.
At the second sack Salsburg will
again slop the lightninsr-like
drives of the catchers, and with
he strong catching staff and Jeff
on the job it will go hard Willi
the man who tries to steal bases.
arriott, the fast little man from
eru, will be on the job at short
this season, and the dope has him
igured out even better than last
season, wnen lie made sucn a
good showing with the locals. At
the third sack Pete Herold will
again make his appearance in a
J Booster uniform, and is filled
with enthusiasm for the game
and promises to makes the fans
sit up and take notice of the
quality of base ball furnished
them this year. In the outer gar
den Carle, Mason and Beal will
appear, as well as Mann, one of
the old reliable men on the team,
and with this line-up in view
there is every reason for the fans
of Plattsmouth looking forward
with pleasure to the coming sea
son. The grounds have been fixed up
in fine shape and are now as
smooth and level as it is possible
to get them, and the boys were
out last evening getting warmed
up for the active work of the sea
son, and when it is started out
you want to keep your eyes on
this city and her fast bunch of
ball players. Be sure to be on
hand Sunday and see the opening
game and get the boys started off
This morning Henry Snoke, one
of the most substantial farmers
of Tipton precinct, visited the
city, and calling at the county
clerk's office filed his name for
the democratic nomination for
the office of county commissioner
from the third district. Mr.
Snoke is one of the most popular
men in the west part of the coun
ty and his name is almost a
household word in the locality
where he has made his home for
so many years, and his candidacy
will find warm support wherever
he is known, as there are no more
whole-souled or better men on
earth than Henry Snoke. There
are a number of other candidates
filed for the some office in the
