From Wednesday's Daily.
The new building which is to be
forty feet in width, and one hund

will be two stories, with a driveway
in the rear of the building for the

unit which is in place in the build

new mill is to be located, shows the
workings of the machinery and
plans. There is but one ten ton
unit now but in the plant which is
to be constructed across the street
there will be ten. The machine
which is now constructed and in
stalled is being tested, and is work

thus preventing the reduction of the
leaves to dust, which would result
in much loss, and fs the practice
pursued by many mills, thus making
in their product much dust which
is entirely eliminated by the pro

large rotary fan which draws a
draft of &ir through the cutter
draws off the dust, thus taking away
dut and other particles which
would otherwise make the product
inferior. The condensing machines,

FOURTH OF JULY BALL GAMES.
From Wednesday's Daily.
The games which are to be play
ed here on the Fourth of July be
tween the Holmes. White Sox team
and the Red Sox of this city, will
be called respectively at 10:00 in
the morning and again at 3:00 in
the afternoon. A pretty good hunch
is out that Carl Stimson will be
tfie pitcher which the Plattsmruith
team will have to play against.
Mr. Stimson is an excellent pitch
er and also an excellent young
man and the team here know about
what they have to go up against.
Who the Red Sox will have is not
definitely known at this time.
. The Sunday Game.
The game for next Sunday has
been arranged between the Red Sox,
who will play six men against a
picked nine from the teams of the
Burlington shops league, and as
there is a handicap, we may look
for a pretty closely contested game.
JULY FOURTH FLAG DAY.

In the year, six of which have been
celebrated this year and the seventh

nation, should be remembered by
all in this land. Whether that one
has as yet become a citizen or not.
Have him observe the nation's
birthday, and inculcate some pat
riotism and lov of country by the
time when he shall become a citi
