The Union base ball team last Sun
day at the Dunbar park, came very
near winning a game, a thing which

is just as near as they have won,
with the single exception of the game
played at Plattsmouth. where the tal
lies were five each and on account
of the lateness of the hour, the game
could not be continued longer. Just
as the car carrying the mascot of
the Union team was entering the
suburbs of Durbar, it was noticed

breeze from the ea&t and a black cat
crossed the road in front of the auto,
it was evident that the team could
not overcome thehandicap. However,
they will play with the team from
Murdock next Monday and they will
meet a fine set of young ni-n with a
determination to play ball, but a jol

Although Opposed by Labor Looks
Like Senatoi Gore of Okla
homa, is Defeated.
St. Louis, Aug. 3. -Unofficial in
complete returns from today's state
wide primary indicated John Atkin
son had defeated Frank H. Farris and
Charles H. Mayer for the democrat
ic nomination for governor. Arthur
M. Hyde and E. K. E. McJimsey, con
testing for the republican nomina
tion, were running neck and neck,
the former polling a large vote in the
rural sections of the state, and the
latter running strong in many of the
larger cities.
Senator Sheldon P. Spencer ap
n:)rfTiilv won iivpr Dwislit V. Davie
and James L. Minnis for the republi
can nomination for United States sen
ator. Breckinridge Long was run
ning strong for the democratic nomi
nation and it anneared he would de

Senator Gore Defeated
Oklahoma City. Aug. 3. A tabu
lation by the Daily Oklahoman at
midnight of returns from 810 pre
cincts from fifty-five of the seventy-
seven counties in the state give
Scott Ferris 61.200 votes for the
democratic nomination for U. S sen
ator and Senator Thomas P. Gore
5S..572 in today's statewide primary.
Early returns, coming in rapidly
from towns and cities, but slowly
from the rural districts at midnight
gave Scott Ferris the lead over Sen
ator Gore. Returns on the repub
lican contest for the senatorial nom
ination' were meagre.
The Gore strength, it was said at
political headquarters here, would
not appear until late as it lies in he
rural precincts.
Kansas Incumbents Win
Topeka, Kan., Aug. 3. Early re
turns from today's statewide primary
election indicate Senator Chas. Cur
tis, Governor Henry J. Allen and all
present congressmen are leading their
respective opponents.
The returns from the city indicate
labor voted against Allen, putting
him behind Senator Curtis. In the
rural districts, however, the vote for
the governor apparently was large.
The democratic returns up to a
late hour were, not sufficient to form
any estimate of the strength of the
four candidates for the nomination
for governor. Jonathan Davis, W. S.
Hvatt, Dempster Potts and O. T.
George H. Hodges, democrat, was
nominated for the United States sen
ate without opposition.
The following named were nomi
nated for representatives in congress
on the republican ticket without op
position: Homer Hoch, Hays B.
White and J. N. Tincher.
These democratic- candidates for
representatives in congress were un
opposed: J. D. Tarkington, Thomas
F. Johnson, J. R. Beeching and W.
A. Avers.

The tragic death of Lieut. Lock
lear and his assistant, recounted in
today's press dispatches will come as
a surprise to those who saw the fear

last fall. And, although wonderful
strides have been made in flying, it
cannot be decreed as absolutely safe,
.iny more than automobiling, or any
of the various "improved" modes of
travel that have come in vogue dur
ing the past decade. Locklear and
his assistants flaw over Plattsmouth
in two planes last fall while enroute
to Lincoln and were seen by large
numbers of Plattsmouth people who
were attracted by the rumbling of
their motors as they swooped down
over the buildings apparently in an
effort to gain their proper bearings,
for soin they rose to a high altitude
and continued on their way.

Raise Better Wheat!
Early and deep plowing will produce better wheat
yields. But even increased yields won't pay for killing
your horses with summer plowing. Buy a Titan trac

Tractor farming is increasing in favor daily. Come
in and see me for particulars and prices.
Below Wholesale Prices!
We have decided to sell our entire stock of goods
at and even below wholesale prices. As other business
is calling for our attention and demanding our time, we
will close out our entire stock of goods at a sacrifice.

Remember, the entire stock goes ! Nothing will be
