GOOD GAME EXPECTED FOR
SUNDAY AT THE BALL PARK
From Tuepdav'p Dally.
It may look dark for the base ball
going public for next Sunday, as the
manager has signed for the Chamlis
American Giants, of Council Bluffs,
la. These people have the reputation
of playing ball as it should be played,
and all who are interested in a good
game, irrespective of religion, race,
color or previous condition of servi
tude, had better get a seat as soon as
dinner is over, for if you don't you
will miss something. The Red Sox
will be in fine trim, and we are prom
ised a fine exhibition of the American
PIECE OF BONE TAKEN OUT.
From Tuesday's Daily.
Robert H. Patton, who has been on
the retired list for some time on ac
count of an infection of one of his
fingers, and which has caused him a
great deal of trouble, was compelled
to have a portion of the bone taken
out the finger yesterday. Mr. Patton
only received a very slight wound
when he was injured, tut the infec
tion has caused a great deal of suf
fering, and finally, when the bone be
came infected, as well as the flesh,
he was compelled to have it taken
out. He has hopes now that the in
jured member will begin to heal and
that eventually will be well again.
RETURN FROM VISIT.
From Tuesday's Daily.
Mrs. J. T. Baird and daughter, Miss
Carrie, who for two weeks were at
Ruskin, Neb. where they were the
guests at the home of the former's
daughter, Mrs. Fred Jones, returned
!iome yesterday. They report things
ooking very well in that portion of
the county, when the matter of the
absence of moisture is taken into con
sideration. There has been no rain
of any conseuence for the past sixty
days, still the corn is looking green,
but shows some effects of the dry
spell. Potatoes, although thick on
the vines, are small, because of the
ack of moisture.
VISITED WITH SISTER.
From Tuesday's Daily.
Mrs. J. A. Hall, of Liberty Center,
Warren county, Iowa, who has been
visiting in this city for the past two
weeks, the guest of her sister, Mrs.
L. L. Porter and family, departed this
morning for her Iowa home. Mrs.
Jessie Copenhaver, another sister,
who was also visiting with the Por
ters, returned to her home at Des
Moines last Sunday, where she is en
gaged in teaching.
FOR COLD MEATS.
From Tuesday's Dailv.
Hatt & Co., who have always been
progressive in their line, are again
in the van with an ice box separately
for cold meats, enclosed in glass on
all sides, and presents a very attrac
tive apearance as all its contents can
be plainly seen. The ice receptacle is
shielded by French-plate mirrors that
adds to its appearance. They also
have a vegetable refrigerator with a
glass top, which keeps its contents
as fresh as from the vine and dis
plays them to the best advantage.
SUFFERING MUCH PAIN.
From Tuesday's Dally.
Philip A. Hild, who yesterday was
caught between the threshing ma
chine and the side of the crip while
endeavoring to get the machine out
in order to begin threshing his grain,
and who had his shoulder dislocated,
besides being squeezed badly, is still
stiff ering much pain and not showing
improvement. We are in hopes he
will be better soon.
WANTED DAMAGES FOR
ACCIDENT THAT HAP
PENED ONE YEAR AGO
From Tuesday's Daily.
Over an accident which happened
over a year ago was attempted a le
gal contest over the meeting at a road
ciossing of to automobiles, which
bumped into each other with some
damage tu each. The occupants were
uninjured otherwise than to have
spoiled their temper?. One car was
coming west and the other was go
ing north some six miles west of here.
The man going north brought the ac
tion and claimed that he had sounded
his horn, and the other man had not.
He admitted that he was making fif
teen miles per hour, and when he saw
the other car scoot out from behind
some trees, he increased his speed in
order to avoid the contact which
seemed imminent. The opposing at
torney cited the law, which says that
a man must not drive to exceed eight
miles per hour when ciossing an in
tersecting road. Then he asked a dis
missal of the case, which was granted
by the court. The damage done to
each machine was churned to be about

In county court was heard yester
day the case of Peter Gakemeier vs.
Thimgen Garage, in which the Thim
gen Garage has repaired an automo
bile for Peter Gakemeier, and the re
plevin was for possession of the car.
When the car was taken to the garage
for repairs a contract was made
whereby it was agreed that Mr. Gake
meier, who is rather hard of hearing,
should conform to the rules and re
main outside the workshop portion
of the garage. This it was proven
he failed to do and the owners of the
place ordered him out. When the
car was done he refused to go into
the place after it. althuogh he was
told by the garage people iz had been
completed. He asked them to bring it
out for him. as he was to have thirty
days to try it, in order to see if it
was substantially repaired. When
they refused to set the car outside the
garage for him to receive it Mr.
Gakemeier replevined the car. At the
hearing today he was required to put
up a bond in twice the amount of the
repairs for the car, which was $40.1".
This he did and the case stands thus,
with a chance for him to appeal the
case, as he claimed the charges were
