Vr"in Tliuroday's DaiTy.
J. Q. Stevens, formerly of Chicago,
but who is miw locating a cone
manufacturing industry in Kansas
City, is in Plattsmouth today in
conference with I... C. Sharp rela
tive to an order for the construction
of ten of the cone machines made by
the local plant, and which are now
in process of manufacture. The lo
cally made machine has been found
far superior to all other makes of
tone manufacturing machines and
one of its best feature is that the
material does not come in contact
with human hands whfte in the pro
cess of moulding and baking. The
demand for the machines is increas
ing by leap's and bounds and it is
being found impossible to supply
them as rapidly as wanted.
Relative to the new cone-making
industry in Kanras City, the Kan
sas Cityan. which is the paper pub
lished by the Chamber of Commerce,
has the following to way:
Million Cones a Day
With the location .of the J. Q,
Stephens Cone company at "S4 1
Southwest Boulevard, Kansas City
has secured what is claimed will be
the best equipped and most economic
ir-e cream cone manufacturing plant
in the I'nited State--. The company
has located here, according to Mr. J.
Q. Stephens, on account of the splen
did facilities offered in the way cf
distribution, as it is proposed to dis
tribute from this plant throughout
the United States. The company is
capitalized at $150,000, all of which
will be paid in.
In the matter of production, it is
said that this plant will be second
to none. They have installed one
large automatic split mold machine,
the only one of its kind ever buiit
and which has i capacity of over
100.000 cones a day. Their com
plete outfit will consist of ten of
these machines. which are bein?
I u i It especially for them, and which
will give a capacity of approximate
ly 1.000.000 cones per day. These
v. ill be shipped in carload lots, load
ed directly at the plant. Their meth
od of manufacture will be new and
unique, the material used not being
exposed to the air or touched by
human hands from the time the flour
goes into the mixer until the finish
ed cone crimes from the machine.
Mr. J. Q. Stephens, paid to be one
of the best pasted men on the man
ufacture and distribution of ice
?ream cones in the country, is presi
dent t-f the company. In order to
have local representation it is in
tended to select local business men
as the remaining officers and direc
tors, with Mr. L. C. Sharp, of Platts
i.iouth. Nebraska, the builder of the
Machine, as one of the directors.

for the store house. Sanders was hit
bv the ball, while Wooster and Price
were caught on second. Although
their success in this first half did
not look so bad, it was soon eclipsed
by the store house, for when they
had gotten through-lambasting th?
ball, each of the nine players hud
faced the "coach shop pitcher, Hirer

scoring while three were left on

controversy, in which claims were
made for and against, the decision of
Umpire J. W. Holmes held and the
overalls went glimmering through
the vale of things that were suppos

the store house made four more runs
and seemed satisfied, having ac
cumulated a total of eleven. The
coach shops were only able to get
eight men across the plate, and thus
lost the game, by a score of 11 to 8.
The hits were evenly divided, there
being seventeen on each side. The
coach shops had four two base hits,
and one three base hit. while the
store house had a four base hit and
two two base hits. Each side had
three walks on balls.
