EAGLE HAS SOME HAIL
From Friday's Pail v.
The western portion of the county
and especially the territory in the
vicinity of Eagle was visited yester
day afternoon by one of the heaviest
hail storms of years. The hail fell
so thick tl:..t it was possible to se
cure whole s'uovelsf nil on the street
and lay to the depth of an inch over
the surrounding country.
The hail storm apparently visited
only the western portion of Cass
county, although the eastern part of

WHAT IS TO BE THE
FATE OF BALL PARK? i
Number of Fans Urge That Steps to
Repair Fences and Seating Ac
comodations Be Taken Up.
The close of the season of 19 20
in the base ball circles of this city
fouml the base ball park in a most
lamentable condition and since the
opening of the reason the destruction
of the property has been marked.
The park was secured through the
energy of the manager of the ball
team, at that time. Ed Brantner,
Charley Johnson. Tom Walling and
H. N. Dovcy, the officers of tne as
sociation as well as the members of
the team themselves, who giving
their efforts and with the financial
assistance of the fans were able to
build the park, construct a gtxd sub
stantial fence, erect the grandstand
and bleachers and make it a first
clais park in every way.
In the past two years there has
been nothing done in the way of re
pairs and the result is that the pirk.
as far as equipment is concerned is
hovering on the ragged edge of noth
ing. A greater part cf the fence is
down or so near it that it is the mat
ter of only a short time until it gives
away, the grandstand is no longer
weather proof and a portion of the
roof will have to be replaced. The
bleachers too, have suffered from the
lack of care and attention and are
practically all gone to the bad.
The base ball park was one of the
best of the small parks in the state
when in proper shape and at this
time with a little effort could be
placed back in reasonably good shape
and a large amount of the lumber
can still be used but a few more
months and this possibility will be
gone as the boards cf the fence are

WILL HAVE BIG CLASS
The local arte of Eagles are pre
paring to hold a large 'lass initiation
in the near future and at their meet
ing last evening fifty-three members
were addel to the lodge membership.
If it is pos-ible to arrange for the
services of the South Omaha degree
earn the initiation will be held on
the first meeting in November, and if
not possible to have the team on
that date it will be made later. The
local arie has, since the first of Jan

now have a total membership of close
to ?xC0 in this city. The lodge ex

of the next state convention which

The injuries that caused her death
were caused on Sunday. October "r.l.
when Retty secured a box of matches
from the cupboard in the kitchen

jinto the yard and proceeded to light
I the matches with the result that her
. garments were caught afire and in a
few seconds she was ablaze ami the
.mother, hearing her cries, ran to the
! rescue, but the fire had done its
deadly work on the frail bedy and
despite all that medical skill and tii
ter.eUr hands cf the loving parents
were able to do for their little one.
her condition has gradually grown
worse until this morning.
The tragic suddenness of the acci
dent that brought death to this little
one has been a cruel shock to the
parents as it has taken from the
home the sunshine that has been
with them for such a few years of
life. In their hour of grief they
, can feel the comforting thought of
. the great love of the Master, who
: has said. "Suffer little children to

STATE MAY APPEAL
THE COLE DECISION
Hopes to Obtain Favorable
In Supreme Court of
The attorney general's office will
decide upon the return of Attorney
General Clarence A. Davis, whether
to try Cede again in the district court
of Howard county for the murder of
Mrs. Vogt. or to appeal from thej
federal court to the United States I
supreme court. j
It is considered probable that the
attorney general will favor an ap-;
peal instead of a new trial. The'
Grammer case, which is in no way t
affected by the de.cision in the Cole
case, is still pending in the federal
court at St. Paul. Both defendants
were tried separately in Howard
county and each sentenced to death.
KISS KNORR ARRIVES
From Monday's ratly.
This morning the home of Mr. and
Mrs. Roy V. Knorr was gladdened
when a fine little daughter arrived
to make her home with them in the
future. The little Miss is the first
child in the family and her advent
brings the greatest joy and happiness
to the proud parents. The parents
are receiving the hearty congratula
tions of their many friends with the
well wishes for future welfare of
Miss Knorr. The mother and little
one are doing nicely and Roy is
without doubt the proudest man in
ROAD STANDS OVERFLOW
The road on the Missouri river
bottom that was graded up a few
days ago stood the heavy rain and de
luge of flood water from the city
in excellent shape today and bore
out the wisdom of the construction
o fthe ditches on each side of the
road. The portion of road just at
the mouth of the Burlington subway
suffered somewhat from the large
volume of water flowing out, but this
will be later overcome by work of
extending concrete base out several
feet farther east that will divert the
water into the ditches on each side.

The Legion team is planning em
playing the greater part of their

that most of the members are cm

PLANS OF SALVA
TION ARMY DRIVE
Opportunity to Have a Part in Great
Work of Organization in Help
ing Fellow Man.
From Thursday's Dally.
"The drive system, more properly
termed the annual appeal for funds,"
says Brigadier William Andrews.
Chief Divisional Officer of the Sal
vation Army. Iowa-Nebraska Division.'
in an interview last night, "has not
been adopted, as is generally believed,
becaus.e it is an ea; y way of raising
money but because it has been proven
to be the most economical and effi
cient method. The Salvation Army
was financed formerly by passing the
tambourine, day in and day out. by
local officers. The result was that
over one-half of the time of our olli
cers, who are trained for relief work
was consumed in asking for money.
Then too. various organizations
adopted uniforms similar to our own
. nd solicited in the name of .some
"army". The general public be
lieving it was giving to the f.alva
tion Army, annually gave thousands
of dollars to "armies" whose only
interest in the public was how much
money they could get out of if To
I top this fraudulent collection of
money we instituted the one annual
campaign:. Other reasons whioh
have led us to use this method are:
1. It is good business. When
our funds are gathered and pho c 1
in the treasury at a special tinv1 of
the year we can outline our work a
year in advance and thus be far
more efficient and economical. For
merly our expenses were guessed at
freni day to aayi" "."ow" ve run on
the budget system. This ?avc-a the
people of Nehra-ska thousand.-? cf 'oi
l:u.s and enables us to reach hund
reds of people who were not readied
2. It does away with fraudulent
solicitation. Through publicity vve
have informed the people of Nebras
ka that there is but. one solicitation
annually in the name of the Salva
tion Army and consequently public
officials can arrest anyone represent
ing himself to be a Salvation Army
officer outside of the campaign per
iod. Last year in Wisconsin where
cur quota in a particular county
was only $250, an impostor who had
never been a member of any Army
confessed that she had manufac
tured her own uniform and solicited
over $2. COO that year from the peo
ple cf that county. Her total theft
in six years amounted to 114.000.
". It makes it possible for relief
workers to do relief .work when need
de. Now Salvation Army officers are
free to administer relief to the poor
and comfort to the downhearted at
all times. Formerly over one-half
cf their time was expended in so
liciting funds to support the work.
It is foolish for us to train officers
in the science of humanity and then
have them spend half their time so
4. It is most economical. The
new method requidres less expense
proportionately to the amount re
ceived. This has been proved by us
time and time again.
. It makes accounting easier.
The public now knows the exact
amount we receive and consequently
when we publish a balance sheet,
as we do annually, it is self-evident
that our money is being expended
