Dennis McCarthy was born at Bos
ton, Mass., April 6, 1832, and died
at the Soldiers' Home, Dayton, O.,
July 29. 1917. aged 85 years 3
months and 23 days. Dennis McCar
thy was for nine years an employe
of the Burlington shops at Platts
mouth and a citizen of this city, and
known by many of the peopla of
Plattsmouth now living here. Mr.
McCarthy was a veteran of the civil
war, and had since 1S91 until the
time of his death, made his hope at
the Soldiers' Home at Daytolff O.
During the war he was what is, or
was known as a corporal of a gun
squad in the navy, and was on the
Cumberland, which was sunk by the 1
Merrimac, the first ironclad war ves
sel ever constructed in the history
of the world. This was the day be
fore the famous battle between the'
Merrimac, the confederate man-of-
war, and the Monitor, the first iron
clad manufactured by the United
States government. At the time the
Merrimac sank the Cumberland she
had a long spar covered with iron,
for the purpose of ramming other
vessels, and with this she rammed
the Cumberland, "and like the honey
bee, left its stinger in the wound un
the spar was broken off in the hold
of the Cumberland, and was, in all
probability, what saved the Monitor
the following day during that famous
battle, as at that time the Merrimac
endeavored to ram the Monitor, the
prow sliding off its sides.
3Ir. McCarthy is the last of the
crew which was on the Cumberland
at the time when she was sunk.
There were on the Cumberland in
all, 400, and out of that number
there were . only thirty-five saved
among whom was Mr. Dennis Mc
Carthy. Mr. McCarthy was here on a visit
with his sons, Joe and Prank Mc
Carthy, who reside in this city,
three years ago. There is also a
daughter, Mrs. Geo. Wellman of
Fmm Friday's Dally.
Miss Alverna Born, daughter of
Henry Born, west of Plattsmouth,
accompanied by her brother, Leon
ard, departed this morning for Ben
son, one of the recent additions of
Omaha, where they will be the
guests of Misses Edna and Myrtle
Snell, and where they will attend a
picnic given by the Sunday school

enth birthday of Master Leonard,
and he will celebrate it in Benson.
They will stay until Sunday, when
Mr. Henry Born and wife will drive
up in their car and spend Sunday
with friends there, and bring the
children home in the evening.

The Red Sox
Win Another
Results in Another Victory for the
Red Sox Large Crowd of
Fans Take It In.
In the ball game Sunday, between
the National Cash Register Com
pany, of Omaha, and the Red Sox, of
Plattsmouth, with the visitors tak
ing the iniatory inning, they reaped
nothing. Still they knew the game
and were in a measure good players.
Etter, the second baseman, secured a
good single, and made second on the
grounder of Mclvor. but died there,
while Mclvor was unable to reach
first. Dudwig made a single, and
Feeney grounded out. With the Sox,
Beal was out on a grounder, Sals
berg got to first, and on a foul by
Simpson both went over. Jungmas
got a good swipe, but the fly was
appropriated by Jeff, while Hay and
Pete, saw to it that Basspalle and
Pates did not have to run for first.
Herold was hit and took a base, but
died on second. Hay got a single,
and Mason was hit, Edwards got hit
and the bases were full. Grassman
got a good hit, and on a fumble by
Basspalle, the visitors third base.
Hay, Mason and Edwards all came
in. Grassman landing on third, Pois
all got a single and Grassman got
home, while Poisall was out trying
to get second. Runs four for the
Red Sox and nothing for the visitors.
While this looked bad for the vis
itors they were playing good ball,
and were all satisfied with the de
cisions of Umpire J. M. Cunningham,
The third. Harris. Hoffman and
Etter all struck out, while with the
home boys Herold and Simpson
struck out. Hay had a single, and
Mason struck out. The fourth for
the visitors was Mclvor out on first,
with a hit for Ludwig and on which
he finally got to second, but Feeney
and Jungmas were cut on Jungmas'
fly. The game was filled with good
feeling, and being as the weather
was so warm it was necessary for Hay
to do a good deal of fanning and he
was willing. Hoffman, the pitcher
for the Register Company, was a
sport, too. and did his share, but in
the eighth it looked as though the
visitors would get a run. when Pates,
'the catcher for the Register people.
got a hit which netted him third.
but alas, he died there. In the lat
ter part of the eighth, Mason added
another run and the people were on
their way home. Pates was an all-
right catcher, and all did well, but
were a little light for the home boys,
but barring the four runs in the
second, would have been a good game
of ball.
