Bi si tors Were a Fine Bunch of
Boys and Everything Passed
cf Harmoniously.
By playing- the hunting- game in.
the first inning of the hall game
yesterday Plattsmouth n
three runs, which was enough to
beat Manley. Both pitchers hurl
ed a sU-rling article of hall, ami
Miller of Mauley seemed to have
the better nf the deal, allowing
hut three hits. The umpiring
was -ure a change to what we
hae heen u-ej to, Jimmy Mc
Andrews of Omaha acting- in that
capacity in perfect fairness to
holh sides.
Manley failed to count in their
opening inning- of tin game. Carle,
heading olf fop the Red Sox,
walked: Parriott hunted inti the
pitcher's hand and Miller at
tempted to get Carle at second,
hut his throw was late ami both
men" were safe. C. Smith follow
ed with a hunt of exactly the same
nature and the pitcher tried for
the third time to get the man at
third, hut against his throw was
late and the sacks were loaded.
Ilerold -truck out. A fries hunted
into Miller's hands; Carle was
easily out. but O'Brien, the catch
er, dropped the throw and the
runner --cored. 1'arriott scored
on a passed hall by O'Brien. Mar-on
brought C. Smith home on a
hunt and was thrown out at lirst.
Arries was put out while attempting-
to reach the home plate,
thereby ending the inning.
In the seventh l'lattsmouth
again threatened to score, but
Mason was caught between third
and home on a failure at I In
squeeze play.
During the tirst eight innings
not a Manley lad had reached
third base, but in the ninth Dallas
opened the performance with a
.-ingle. Murphy followed with a
good hit to the left tiebl fence,
scoring Dallas, but Murphy was
put out in attempting to stretch
his hit into a three-bagger. Bryan,
bntting for Leeman, was hit by
one of I'ike's slants. L. Smith
made a fine catch of Miller's drive
to right tiebl and double, l Bryan
at first and ended the game,
leaving the score :? to 1 in favor
of (he Red Sox.
The fielding of Mason for
l'lattsmouth and Maxwell for
Manley were the features of the
game. The Manley players were
a very gentlemanly bunch of fel
lows and their conduct was all
that coulil be a. ked. both on and
off the field, and the fans were
delighted with the splendid way
in which they played the game
without any rag-chewing that is
the general custom of the visiting
teams here. There were a large
number here from Manley and
ihey were delighted with the fast
ball game. The line-up of the

Nebraska Grown Grain Finds Ex
port Markets in Europe and
All Ports Are Closed.
l lie maiKeis of the world are
reached from the Nebraska wheat
lields via the north Atlantic and
gulf coast ports. There js prac
tically no grain market reached
bv the west ports. Oecasioiiallv a
car ot wheat is .-tupped west, but
the amount exported from the Pa-
citic coast ports is neglible.
I'hei efore when the "eastern and
southern ports announce an em
bargo grain stops moving from
Nebraska wheat fields. Elevators
are -till loading-, bul there is no
export market.

our wheat production, a larger
per cent of the Nebraska crop.
however, is said to be sent abroad.
The millions in China and
Japan buy little grain, compared
o what some countries with
mailer population buy, and most
of what they do buy is furnished
by Rus-ia, shipped from the Rus
sian wheal country via the trans
Siberian railroad to the east cost
of Asia.
"Why hasn't some far-seeing
transportation magnet made .-ome
effort to develop a market in Asia
to take care of our surplus at just
uch times as these?"' is a query
frequentlv heard since the war
There is such a market, not a
ig one to be sure, but there is a
leniand for export Hour from the
west coast. Canada moves a targe
amount of flour and some wheat
from Vancouver. The market has
not been of great benefit to the
niled States grain grower, hou-
e er.
J. J. Hill at one time made
trenuous efforts to develop an
Asiatic trade, but of late ears his
energies have not been directed
toward that channel of develop
ment so exclusively as when he
was building- two large freight
carrying vessels to care for the
export business from his Puget
ound terminals.

Ihiring the heavy loading sea
son of July the car supply was
not exhausted. Now the cars sent
asf. wilh grain will be returned in

manner in which they may be
rought back will permit many of
them to come back loaded, thus
making a revenue haul for the

when wheat aprain moves seaward
there will be less danger of a mar
