Played Excellent Ball.
Both the teams of Union and
Nehawka, who went to the mat at
Nehawka last Sunday, contained
some excellent players, men capable
of making home runs, and a high
number of scores. Nehawka was
somewhat handicapped on account of
a shortage of players and before the
game could be pulled off, it was ne
cessary to make a purchase of a play
er, and after having critically exam
ined the Union bunch, picked out
one which seemed would suit the oc
casion, Mr. H. W. Griffith, who after
some bickering as to price was pur
chased from the Union aggregation
by the Nehawka syndicate at the fig
ure of nine cents. His buying con
cluded the game was immediately
called. The Nehawka team showed
that they had the stuff in them for
during the first two innings they
,rolled up twelve runs and while
during the same time Union had got
ten three and it looked pretty bad
for Union. There were whisperings
going around the crowd that the eye
sight of the umpire. Fred Clarke,
was not the best, as while Union was
losing they could not see the correct
ness of his decisions when they were
against the Union team. When Un
ion got the decision then his eye
sight was excellent. The Union
team who are all good fellows, con
sisted of Pearceley, Lynde, Dave Eat
on, Earl Wolf, Hoback. Hathaway
Bruce Wolf and Kline. The Nehaw
ka team showing Kimball. Rutledge,
C. Cooper, Johnson, Griffith, pur
chased from Union, Sturm, Fred
Cooper. John Griffin and Spence. As
an evidence of their worth as ball
players we cite the results, Nehaw
ka sixteen and Union twenty-one.
A good natured and a large crowd
watched with much interest t?ie

the home grounds the coming Sun
day and will be pitted against the

car of Miss Taj-lor, with the result
that she was badly injured and the

tent. The injured lady is now show

of the case and it is thought the
matter will be handled in a manner
satisfactory to all concerned.

Harvest will be here before you think about it,
and you need a good place for your grain.
Consider how scarce cars are for shipping and
also how valuable wheat and oats are at present.
The loss of a few bushels will pay for a granary
that will last you twenty-five years.
Wheat in a good granary is much safer than in
the stack-or shock. Get busy; build now!
Let us figure your bill. We appreciate your pat
ronage and endeavor to merit it at all times.

City to Omaha and driving at an ex
ceedingly high rate of speed. The
car containing the Unidri people was
just coming out into the road run
ning north and south, north of
Charles Garrison's and had passed to
the west side of the road, which
was proper as they were coming
south, and the car driven by Cohen
also took the west side which was
wrong for him, and with the force
of a catapault, hit Miss Taylor's car
about the middlo, wrecking both
ars and injuring Miss Elsie Taylor
very severely, bruising her head and
one arm. Miss Taylor was compelled
to keep her bed for a number of
days and while mending is still in a
verv serious condition.
Washington, June 1. The bonus
legislation now in the senate bids
fair to repose in committee through
the summer and probably will rest
there until election. After that it
will be killed, it is believed here.
Passage of the bill by the house
was a most unusual proceeding, for
it is stated that at least 65 per cent
of the members were opposed to it.
The power of the American Legion
and the soldier vote drove men into
the "aye" column who- talked the
ohter way in the cloak rooms. ,
The senate, always known as a
body whicli is to rectify house mis
takes and accept verdicts bravely
which the house will not put upon
itself, is ready to take all blame for
refusal to act, the leaders declare.
Just how and when it will be done
has not been announced. It may
be that some step will be taken be
fore adjournment, although some of
the leaders said today the matter
had not been formally decided.

Her first illness covered a period
of more than three years, at times
suffering greatly, but due to her won
