A Very Spirited and Well Played
Game, and a Large Crowd of
Fans Present.
From Tuesday's Danr.
Before the largest crowd that ever
attended a ball game in Plattsmouth,
the Red Sox downed the Armours, by
a 4 to 2 score.. It was a battle royal
from start to finish, and only after
playing the best ball they have put up
in many a moon were the Hose able
to win out. Yeast, the twirler se
cured from Lincoln, was all to the
good, holding the visitors to six scat
tered hits, striking out seven men and
having almost perfect control. Eddie
Roben, the whirlwind little infielder,
played the keystone sack as it has
never been played here before, cutting
off several clean hits. Floyd Rock
well, the slugging outfielder, came
through with two clean swats, both
figuring in the run getting. Man for
man the Armours were simply out
classed and it was a deserving victory
fur the Hose.
The Armours opened the first in
ning by securing a tally. Al Graves
was safe when Rice fumbled his sharp
grounder. Graves stole second and
scored on Yost's single to right. The
Hose came right back. -Deal and Par
riott fanned the air, but "Rocky" sent
a screaming double to center, going
to third on Gurness' wild heave, and
scored on Ryan's wild heave to first.
The Packers scored again in the fifth,
when Clements received a free pass
to first, was sacrificed to second by
Gurnes and scored on Collins' single
to left. The real play came in the
seventh. Craig drew a walk, went to
second on Deal's sacrifice and scored
on Rockwell's hit to center Rice
smacked a hit to left and Roben drew
a walk. Harold came through with
the winning blow, a clean single over
second; Roben was nipped at third,
nding the inning. The Armours
threatened in their last two attempts
but Yeast had them in hand, at all
times. Following is he score:

In one of the most one sided games
f the year the Armours crushed the
Red Sox by a 12 to 2 score Sunday
The packers had their batting eye
jrlued on the ball and drove Lefty
Hirsch from the mound in 6 innings.
Cost, Learner and Al Graves responded
with doubles in the pinches and mis
plays on the Sox part gave the pack
ers the remainder of their runs. The
Armours scored in the first stanza,
Collins singled to left, stole second and
third and scored on Corcoran's fly to
left field. They came back in the
fourth with four more, Rapp was
Leaned by Hirsch; Clements was safe
on an infield blow; Collins gingled to
center, scoring Rapp; Learner sent
Clement and Collins home with a dou
hle down the left field line. Yost
doubled to left scoring Learner. The
fifth was again productive of a run
for the mighty sluggers when four
more runs were annexed by them as
a result of the lambasting of Hirsch
r-nd the general ragged game played
I y the locals. Scores in the sixth and
eighth enabled the visitors to pile up
the score that swamped the locals who
were lucky to get even two runs.
The Sox tallied in the seventh on a
hit by. Rice; a two bagger by Roben
and these two were netted as the sum
total of the Plattsmouth scores.

Prom Tuesflay's Dally,
Saturday afternoon a man named
Conn, and hailing from Cedar Creek,
met with quite a misfortune as he
was gaily mingling with the crowd
of 8,000 persons who filled the streets,
and as a result of his experience is
short 70 in good hard cash, the result
of the work of some light-fingered
person who, in the excitement and
crowd, made' the touch that caused
the loss of the pocketbook and the
corresponding gloom of the owner
The theft was reported to the authori
ties, and Sheriff Quinton and Chief
Barclay did their utmost to locate the
person taking the coin, but without
success. The empt pocketbook be
longing to Conn was found at the
Burlington station, but without the
money. It was thought at first that
the man had made his escape on the
Schuyler train, but it was searched at
Oreapolis without success. The theft
of the pocketbook led to a number of
very sensational reports as to how
the affair occurred, but it was merely
the case of a real smooth pickpocket
getting away with the gods, and for
tunately, was the only incident of the
kind reported, which isvery lucky, con
sidering the large crowd in attend
ance at the Home Coming.
From Tuesday's Daily.
Officer Alvin Jones is wearing his
left arm in a sling today as .the re
sult of a nasty, flesh wound from the
bullet of a 38-caliber revolver that was
discharged ot him at an early hour
this morning by a party of hoboes.
The officer had gone up to the upper
yards of the Burlington a short dis
tance north of the platform at the
depot and here he states there were
three hoboes sitting around a fire.
Mr. Jones requested them to move on
and not to camp in the yards and at
this two of the men started away but
the other instead of going proceeded
to draw a gun a shot Alvin through
the fleshy part of the left forearm
making a very painful wound. Mr,
Jones fired after the retreating men
but there seems to have been none of
them injured as they all made their
getaway. Jones came back to the
city to have his injured arm looked
after and Chief of Police Barclay was
called to the scene of action and in
company with Sheriff Quinton and
Mr. Jones visited the scene of the
trouble but there was no trace of the
men to be found. The place where
the shooting occurred is on the west
side of the railroad yards and a short
distance north of the switch shanty.
It is reported that three hoboes were
seen along the track yesterday after
noon near the west limits of the yards
Last evening the home of Mr and
Mrs Edward McCully was visited by
a great misfortune when their little
babe was taken from them by death
and leaves their home darkened by
the loss of the, rear one. - The little
daughter has been very poorly for the
past few weeks and was taken to Oma
ha Tuesday in the hopes 'of having an
operation performed for the relief of
the little one but without avail as the
babe gradually grew worse and passed
away In their loss the parents will
receive the deepest . sympathy of the
entire community. During the few ,
months of the life of the babe she has
been the sunshine of the home and the
loss is one that falls most bitterly on
the bereaved parents.
Jhe funeral of the babe wjll be held
tomorrow; afternoon from the home at
2:30 and the interment made in Oak
Hifl cemetery.
Interesting Letter From C. W. Sher
man, in Which He Mentions Other
Cass County People.
From Tuesday's Pally,
From far off California comes a
very interestjng letter from C. W.
Sherman, for a great many years
editor and publisher of The Journal,
and tells of the doings of the former
Cass County people in the coast coun
try. Mr. Sherman has removed from
Oregon to Los Angeles, and is now
enjoying life in the beautiful southern
city. In writing Mr. Sherman says:
"Los Angeles, Cal., Aug. 29th, 1916.

late Sthephen Davis, for many years

southern California is the acme of
pleasurable satisfaction, it is not quite
complete without The Journal, will

''Some forty people, former Cas

uuring the Home Coming the coun

was the scene of a pleasant week-end
party, when a number of their rela

down for a visit. The party numbered
several of the most talented musicians
in the big city and the- visit was one
of the rarest eniovment to pvprvunc
in the party. Those who were at the
Todd home were, Misses Madge,
