A ptoiy of disappointed lovo ami
giief over the death of n yvtmg man
Is given from the vicinity of.Avoca,
where Miss Kmma Meimers, aged IS,
i' t templed suicide a few days ago, and
the young woman is now lying In one
of the Omaha hospitals in a very
tlitlcal condition suffering from the
effects of poison self administered
with a desire of ending her life. As
far as can be ascertained the young
lady has been brooding over the hc
ridental death several months ago of
the young man to whom she was en
gaged to be married, and her despond
ent condition finally culminated n few
lays ago in her attempt at suicide.
She was alone at the farm home when
phe took the poison and telephoned to
her parents of her rah act, and they
at once secured a physician, who was
rufhed to th Koimers' homo and
found the young woman suffering
groittly from the effects of the poison.
and although she was saved from
delh at the time, her condition was
such that it Was thought best to have
her taken to Omaha to receive treat
msnl at one of the hospitals there,
and since th&t time she has been lying
between lif and d?nth. despite the
tpleudid fight being made to save her
from the effects of her act. The grief
of the young woman over the death of
hi?r lover has boon most profound and
thU is thought by the relatives to
have caused her attempt to join him
itt death.

The county court houso was quite u

bridge contracting companies in this
section of the state wero on hand to
submit their bids for the woik of the
county for tho etiauing year. The
greater part of the work in the past
year has been handled by the Monarch
Kngineerin Co., of Kalis City. There
were cpjile a number of bids tiled for
the different lines of bridge work that
will be required during the next year.
The sum which has ben paid out for
bridges and re-pairs in the last few
years has boon considerable, as the
heavy rains and storm of tho last
two seasons have played havoc with
the bridges of the county.

Large Attendance
and a ( lose and
ing Contest.
Tho I'lattsmoijlh Red Sox yesterday
afternoon, for the second time this
season, were able to do businesa with
the redoubtable (Ilenwood aggregation
of base ballists, nnd copped a moat
Interesting contest in the cloning In
nings of a hard-fought battle by a
rcoro of 2 to 1, and this after the
visitor seemed to have everything
their own way, but with the en
thusiasm of the large crowd to a saint
them the members of tho crimaon
hose were able to get away with the
long end of the hoart-breaking con
test, ami in thin the. sticking of Real
and llerold in the ninth frame brought
in the necessary tally that spelled vie
lory. In the eighth round Hcrold had
registered the tying run of the con
test. The boys were not at their best
in the opening innit.gH, but tightened
and carried off the fourteenth straight
win on the home grounds nnd humbled
tho I own team, who bad come to this
city determined to secure the game.
There was nothing doing in the way
of scoring' during the first four in
rdngH, but in the fifth the visitors jar
red loose and made things look de
cidedly stormy for the followers or
the Sox. Mann, the catcher of the
lowu team, led off with a hit over
shortstop that could not be handled in
time and was followed by Pitcher Hall
with one in the Hame place. Undore
was mixed with u little grounder to
lnrriottat third and was caught out
at the first station; Mann scored, but
Hall was caught out at the third sack
Linville ended the gloomy inning by
knocking a grounder to Craig which
was as good ns suicide, as the fust
first sucker caught him easily. Al
though with several good chances af
ler this the Clcnwood boys were un
able to get by with any more runs.
In the eighth inning the big show
was started as far as the local3 were
concerned, when Hcrold hit to left
garden for two bags nnd was advanc
ed by . Mason with a sacrifice to-thinl,
which I'cte sccu.'ed, while Masoif was
thrown out at the initial station
Gleko then laid against cue. of H;o,li
er Hall's slants and placed it safely
over second, bringing 'in Tote with the
needed score to tie up the game, but
Hobbie was tagged out at second when
Pitman hit to the shortstop. C
Smith, who had been substituted for
Iuie Smith in the sixth, was caught
at the second station on a steal.
With the score tied when the Sox
came to bat in the ninth the crow.!
was wild with enthusiasm and the
grandstand and bleachers rocked with
the cheers of the admirers of the Sox
nnd the cheers were well deserved, for
right here was where the Sox won the
game. Craig was the first up and was
walked by Hall, which later proved his
undoing, as Deal, who followed, ad
vancod him to third by a rap over
third, and after Tetcr Hcrold had
slammed one over the third sack Craig
came home w ith the score that spelled
defeat for Glenwood and earned a
well deserved victory for the locals.
It might not be amiss to remark
that Hcrold has been the batting kid
in the last few engagements and
gathered to himself three hits yester
day, two of which were important in
winning the game. The box score of
the contest was as follows:

Pitman wa fair to both sides and the
visitoi done Jittlfe disputing over the '
decision of the "ump," When the urn-'
pi re is a Kquarc in his decisions a
Mr. Pitman, and being from our own
town, it looks rather bad form for the'
local to dispute hi judgment on so'
many little matter;. Ir tho re were
rank rulings made by the umpire a
teum would be justified in kicking, but.
most of the boys recognize the fact
that the present umpire is one of more
than usual good judgment and fair
ness. Such actions hurt the game arid
does much to discourage the fans
from attending.
Saturday afternoon the office of
County Judge Hecson greatly re
tembled the famous Gretna Green,
with several couples of young people
desiring to be joined in wedlock pres
ent. The fame of the judge must have
spread beyond the broad confines of
his home state, as those seeking the
ceremony of matrimony came from
quite a distance.
The first to be united were Mr.
Puul H. Osiek of St. Joseph, Missouri,
and Miss May Andreasen of Stella,
Neb. This party came to this city ac
companied by Mrs. T. II. Iladgen and
II. II. Warwich in an automobile, and
as soon as the wedding was over de
parted for Stella.
Walter Vernon of Kansas City, Mis
souri, and Miss Louise Alden of
Olathc, Colorado, arrived in the city
Saturday afternoon at 4 o'clock and
nt once sought the court house, where
they secured a licenes and were united
in marriage by the judge, and return
ed to Omaha on the evening train and
will doubtless have a warm spot in
their hearts for I'lattmouth, the
scene of their great happiness.
The free "entertainment Saturday
afternoon was one of the most suc
cessful that has been given so far this
year by tho entertainment committee
and the business men and citizens and
tho large crowd in attendance felt
well repaid for their trouble in being
present. The Burlington band, under
the direction of Prof. E. H. Schulhof,
gave a splendid concert at Fourth and
Main streets, which was enjoyed by
several hundred persons, and one of
the most difficult and artistic programs
of the season was given and thorough
ly appreciated by the music-lovers in
attendance. At the close of the cou-
cert the team of Adolph and Raymond,
comic acrobatic artists, gave a pleas
ing performance and their act was re
ceived with marked favor by the en
tire audience on the streets, and in re
sponse to a request these gentlemen
have agreed to return in two weeks
for a three nights' engagement at the
Air 'Dome, when they will present
three new and novel acts. The weath
er being so fine kept a great many
farmers from attending, but late in
the afternoon a large number were
fcble to get in to witness the second
free act of Messrs. Adolph and Ray
J. H. Xorris and wife of near Hold-
redge. Neb., came in j-rstervlay for a
short visit, with their old friends, Mr.
and Mrs. Bennett Chnswisscr. Mr.
Norris resided for a groat many years
on a farm west of Murray and his old

are well pleased to meet him.They
will spend a few weeks here.

For some time children going out
Chicago avenue have been in the
habit of running along and dodging
the automobiles which are going and
coming along that thoroughfare, and
last evening one little girl came near
meeting her doath as the result of this
practice. Tho girl, incompany with
a number of other children of from
6 to 10 years of age, were driving sev
eral cows down the avenue and also
playing along by seeing how close
they could come to the automobiles
tiaveling along the avenue, and as
cne car was coming in the driver was
compelled to turn out for a buggy and
just as the little girl ran across the
road in front of the machine. It was
only a miracle that the child was not
killed or bi.dly injured, as the car
only missed her by a few inches. Par
ents who have children in the habit of
making this thoroughfare a play
ground should take the matter in hand
and see that they do not attempt to
play tag with the passing autos. or
sooner or later an accident will occur
that will cause them great anguish
and grief. From the statements of
those who were near the scene the
driver of the car was not in the least
to blame for the narorw escape of the
child, as he was running at a very
low rate of .speed when the child
dashed in the way of the car.

Sheriff Quinton was notified yester
day that a young man named Albert
Hall, of Glenwood, bad come over to
this city and it was desired by his par
ents that he be returned home, as they
desired that he join his military com
pany, which leaves for the summer
camp of instruction near Des Moines.
The young man is described as being
19 years old, and well built and when
last seen wore a brown coat with blue
serge trousers. His parents are very
desirous of having their son return
home and go out with the militia boys
to the camp, and for this reason re
quested the sheriff to attempt and lo
cate the young roan. So far he has
not been seen and may have returned
to Glenwood on his own account.
