Having the bulk of their farm

and wife and Will Hummell and wife
started a week ago Saturday for the
northern part of the state, where a
large number of former Plattsmouth

Their first stop was at Flainview,
where they saw many former Casj
county people and were so surround
ed by friends that they could scarce
ly realize they were out of their
home vicinity. They found Fred
Ebinger. Fred Weidman and Hans
Goos all engaged in business in the
promising little city of Plainview,
and each doing well. They also met
and visited at the homes of Henry
Falter, Jacob Horn.- Mtehael.-Jacob.
Henry and Louis Hoffard, John
Weber and John and Phillip Schae

vicinity and John Hoofer, of Arcadia.
They describe the homes of these
men as being the best, and say that
they have prospered beyond measure.
They found the country very pro
ductive this year, with bountiful
crops everywhere en route. The cool
evenings made the trip a pleasure,
although on one or two ocasions the
nights were a bit to cool and a fear
of frost was expressed. Luckily it
has not yet materialized and all hope
the crops will get to a safety point

Stimpson Hurled Part of Game for
Armours Yesterday Defeated
by a 9 to 0 Score.
From Monday's l'ailj.
The Monarchs. crack negro team
of Kansas City, had little trouble in
winning a double header in Omalia
yesterday afternoon from the Ar
mours, taking the first game 9 to 0
and the second 11 to 5.
Fart of the first contest was pitch
ed by Stimpson. former Plattsmouth
sandlotter who migrated to South
Dakota early this season, but was re
leased several weeks ago. StimsAn
went in to relieve Babe, but was un
able to effectively check the on
slought of the "smokes."
In the second game. Madden,
former Murpny-uid-it nurier was
opposed by Donaldson, famous col
ored twirler of big league ability.
The Monarchs also won the Sat
urday afternoon game against Andy
Graves, by a score of 6 to 1, after it
had remained 1 to 1 up to the first
half of the ninth, thus winning the
series In three straight.
Inability to See Narrow Place
Bottom of Hill Responsible
No One Injured.
From Monday's Dally.
Yesterday morning while Carl
Ohlschlager, make-up man in the
Journal composing rooms, while out
riding in his Cadillac roadster, ac
companied by a Mr. Henderson, met
with an accident ut the foot of the
hill just west of the L. L. Wiles
farm, which although it was the
cause of damaging two perfectly good
cars, was lucky inasmuch as it was
not attendant by loss of life or per
sonal injuries.
Mr. Ohlschlager and companion
had been viewing the country and
were driving at a moderate rate of
speed, and as they were descending
the hill, hidden from vision by the
overhanging branches of trees along
the roadway, a culvert and narrow
place in the road could not be seen
until they were right up to it. It
so happened that at the same time,
coming" from the east was the car of
W. F. Nolting, occupied by himself
and family.
When the drivers were able to
get an unobstructed view of the road
and note its impassibility, the cars
were but a short distance apart and
to stop short fit a collision was im
possible. On the other hand, the
narrowness of Ihe highway precluded
possibility of passing without one or
the other of the cars going into the
deep ditch. The lesser danger seem
ed to be in a headon collission, and
although the brakes were used effec
tively the cars came together with
considerable impact.
Doth cars were large ones, the
one driven by Mr. Ohlschlager being
a Cadillac roadster and that of Mr.
Nolting a Willys-Knight. The cars
were both badly wrecked and will
require the expenditure of many dol
lars to place them in serviceable
condition again. Had either or both
drivers been traveling at a high rate
of speed, the inevitable result would
have been a terrific pile-up, result
ing undoubtedly in loss of life, and
in view of the circumstances the
occupants of both machines can con
sider themselves lucky in this re
spect. It looks as though there might be
a damage claim filed against the
county for recovery for permitting
such a place to remain in the public
highway. The losers in this accident
both feel that they were in no way
to blame for the collision and attend
ant losses which they sustained.
The cars have been taken to the
garage tor repairs, out just wnat
steps will be taken in this direction
has not been determined.
