as 'two and two' but if they had
been practiced generally during the
five years mention a large part of
the $91.S00,00O tire loss from smok
ing and the use of matches would
have been saved to the Nation."
From Tuesday's Daily.
The baseball fans of the city were
treated to two good exhibitions of
the national pastime on Sunday and
Monday, when Pa Harclay's Eagles
trimmed up their rivals, the Kinney
Shoe company team, of Omaha, and
the Murdock team.
The game on Sunday with the
Kinney Shoe company aggregation
was the occasion of William Harvey
Mason showing some real class as a
ball tosser and he was able to keep
the visitors guessing the greater pari
of the game and the contest was
won by the Eagles by the score of
4 to 2. One of the runs secured by
the visitors was on a home run while
an error permitted the scoring of
the second tally of the visitors. The
Eagles showed speed and class in
the contest and Harry Newman, the
fast second sacker, covered himself
with glorv in his stick work that
added materially to the success of
The game yesterday afternoon was
largely interfered with by the rain
at noon and also by the fact that it
was held later on account of the ser
vices at the Parmele theatre. Man
ager Barclay and the hall team very
graciously deferring to the'spirit of
the day until the memorial services
The Murdock team had been con
siderably strengthened since their
previous appearance here and made
a much better showing against our
sterling ball artists but were unable
to get anywhere with the game as
the final score was to 4 in favor
of the locals. Joe McCarthy, who
proved a whirlwind on the hiirh
school team, was on the mound yes
terday and kept the residents of Ihej
west side city guessing at all stages;
of the game and the stick work of!
the Eagles was much beter than I
that of their opponents. The ruin'
had interfered with the perfect con-1
dition of the grounds and did not

The Eagles have so far tins season j

the new blood that Manager Ilar-j
clay has introduced has more than;
made good and before the season is
over the city will have a team they
can well feel proud of and their
judgment in the selection of a man

as Mr. Barclay is doing his utmost
to give the fans a real team.
ON CARELESS SMOKER
Chief Sandin Recites Enormous Loss
of Past Five Years Due to the
Incautious Use of Tobacco
Smokers and users of mat f lies

$!l,S0ft.0Ort worth of property in
the United States during the live
years. 1915-1919 inclusive, accord
ing to Fire Chief O. Sandin, who to
day started a special campaign
the careless tobacco smokers of the
"We are not criticising the habit
of smoking," said Chief Sandin to
day, "but we do censure the care
less persons who thoughtlessly cast
lighted matches, cigar and cigarette
stubs into waste baskets, rubbish
piles or other places where combus
tible material is upresent.
"Considering that the American
public consumes over 7,271.000,000
cigars and more than 42.4.",;.000.00o
cigarettes yearly and 700.ooo.ooo
matches raily, it is not surprising
that we have so many fires from this
hazard. The mileage of the cigaret
tes used in the course of a year
would stretch a distance almost five
times the length of America's steam
railways. This large consumption
does not excuse the loss, however,,
but makes it evident that stringent
precautions are necessary.
"Unfortunately," continued the
chief, "there is considerable loss of
life by burning because of reckless
employes in factories and other places
of business who snatch a smoke w hen
the foreman is not looking. If dis
covery is threatened, the smoker is
likely to get rid of his cigarette,
cigar or pipe as rapidly as possible,
with little thought as to where it
may land. 1
"There have been numerous cases
where fires have started in this way.
In one New York shirt waist factory,
an operative threw a lighted cigarette
stub into cotton scraps on he flooi
and, as a result of his thoughtless
ness, 145 girls lost their lives in the
fire and panic that followed.
"There have been a number of
serious fires from this hazard in the
history of our own city. In fact,
smokers are responsible for a great
er portion of our fire losses than any
other agency except improperly used
electricity and electrical appliances.
"It is an obvious truth that the
American public is constitutionally
careless and prone to 'take a chance.'
That is the reason we have such
heavy fire, losses as compared with
"The proper time to fight a fire is
before it occurs, and I am asking
employers of the city to enforce their
'No Smoking' rules, and to be more
careful themselves. Eire is a com
munity proposition and not a per
sonal one, although there are not
many people who realize this fact.
"The way to reduce the number of
fires due to the use of matches and j
smoking materials is to make sure
that neither lighted matches nor to-!
bacco embers are ever disposed of
in unsafe places. Break your match j
sticks in half after using them, and,
stamp upon your cigar and cigarette j
stubs if you are outdoors. Indoors, '

VISIT THE CITY
Live Wires Advertising the Market
City of the West Spend Short
Time Here Saturday.
Saturday afternoon occurred the
fin il su ing of the Omaha Chamber of
Commerce booster trip which took
the members of the party through
the fruit belt of eastern Nebraska
on their way back to Omaha. The
party, traveling on their special
train, started from Tecumseh early
in the morning and passed through
Johnson and Nemaha counties to
P.rownville and Peru and thence in
to Nebraska City, where an extend
ed stop was made and the visitors
given a royal welcome by the resi
dents of that city and the Omaha
trade boosters state that it was the
most enthusiastic reception they had
received on their swing through the
South Platte territory.
The party arrived in Plattsmouth
at ." o'clock over the Missouri Pacific
and for the course of three quarters
of an hour visited among the busi
ness bouses of the city as each of
the large Omaha wholesale concerns
had representatives on the expedi
tion. The different tradesmen took
the opportunity of visiting the local
retailers and the live boosters pro
ceeded in the short time they had to
thoroughly advertise the Omaha re
tail establishments and the fact that
the Gate City was the one bright
spot in the west for business as well
The expedition was accompanied
by the Dan Desdunes band of colored
musicians and they afforded the res
idents of this city with some very
lively music for a few moments that
served as a most entertaining feature
of the trip.
The visit of the Omaha business
men out in the state has served to
establish closer and more friendly re
lations between the metropolis and
the smaller towns of the state and
is the proper spirit to show among
residents of the great commonwealth
