MANLEY TEAM WIN
SUNDAY'S GAME
Take the Eagles Down the Line
Score of 4 to 2 in Contest on
Dampened Grounds.
by
From Monday's Daily.
Yesterday afternoon the followers
of the national pastime from the
promising little city of Manley ar
rived in our midst with their shin
ing war clubs and fast bunch of
base ball players and put the first
niche of the season in the record of
the Plattsmouth Eagles, winning the
game by a score of 4 to 2.
The visitors had expected to come
in even stronger force as they had a
hurler from Ashland scheduled to do
the tossing for their team, but owing
to the threatening weather he came
not. and the Manley team was placed
1,s own resources to supply the
I .i..f-,,.:. .. ; . ..i, ; ..
c:? ii tor piicners irom tne visitors
brought forth Mike OLeary. one of;
promising young players of ourj
: ''- ighboring town and he fitted very'
! nicely in the base ball machinery and
;Tept the Eagles at a disadvantage all
the wav through the game.
The locals were also shy in the

'against Nehawka. This necessitated
Herold assuming his old time
'Job back afiLebat and he caught a
' 5od game as is his general practice,
, although he has not for the past two
seasons played a great deal in this
i position. William Harvey Mason
was the choice of the
team as the
slab artist and played a good game,
although in one inning the team suf
fered heavv casualties and the visi
tors were aide to secure their four!

'water aiding in getting two of the
runs over the slab. I
J he water also conirioutea 10

William O'Donnell at the first sack
for the Eagles, was one of the chief
features of the game arid secured a
numb, t of very difficulty catches on;
the throws and hits made into nis-
position.

The game was very pleasing and
the two teams have promised a sec
ond meeting, when they will try out
the issues again.
RIVER STILL OVER
FLOWING BOTTOM
Inundates Farm Land East of Bur
lington Tracks Not as High
as Last Year but Rising
From M'inrtav'R Daljv.
The flood waters which have been
! accumulating in the Platte and Mis
souri rivers near their source are
now pouring with full force through
I this territory and ca-using not a lit
tle' damage to the low lands that lie
I where the old bed of the Missouri
i was in the long-distant past. The
land east of the Burlington right-of-
way, which had given promise of
returning an excellent crop for the
first time in the past three years, is
now under several feet of water and
last evening a three inch rise added
to the trials and tribulations of the
residents along the lands where the
water has been most felt.
The water has now swept over the
low lands from north of the Platts-'
mouth Water company's pumping
station and the land between the sta-'
tion and the residence of J. I. Lowe
just east of the depot, resembles a'
large lake, while prospects are good
for a still further raise. So far.
however, the water has not reached
the stage that it did last year, when
it entirely surrounded the Lowe home
and made travel necessary with a
row boat.
The high water has brought a
large number of fish into the chan
nels and shoots along the river and
some large sized cat fish have been
caught on the flooded sections of
land by the adventerous fishermen.

RETURNS FROM THE
HEAD CAMP, M. W. A,
County Judge Beeson, One of Ne
braska Delegates, Reports Fine
Time in St. Louis.
Prom Monday's Dally.
County Judge Allen J. Beeson and
wife returned home yesterday from
St. Louis, where they had been in
attendance at the sessions of the
head camp of the Modern Woodmen
of America. Judge Beeson being one
of the members of the Nebraska dele
gation to the great fraternal gather
ing. Judge Beeson reports the head
camp as being attended by some
5,000 Modern Woodmen and with a
camp of 2,000 Forresters there dur
ing the meeting and some very in
teresting competitive drills pulled
off by the various teams. The drill
team of Rock Island, Illinois, was the
winner of the first prize and No. 120
01 Omaha a close second, both teams
being brilliant in their drilling and
formations.
One of the most important busi
ness matters taken up and acted on
by the head camp was the decision
to place the age for membership at
from 1C to 50. instead of 18 and 45.
as it is at present. The officers of
the order believe that the youths of
the lower age joining will permit
the older class of men to enter with-
j out causing any appreciable increase
in the losses of the order,
j The city of St. Louis afforded
'many interesting sights for the niem
j bers of the camp and all of the points
of interest were taken 'in during the
stay of the visitors. The judge found
:the opportunity of hieing himself out
I to the National league park, where
he saw the Pittsburg team and the
.Cardinals tangle and Bender, well
known Indian pitcher, did the tossing
for the smokv citv crew at the game.
Shaw's gardens and the many inter
esting river views also helped in
jthe entertaining of the crowd of
visitors. One of the sights that ap
! pealed most to the genial jurist was
the court house of St. Louis, built
j in 1S29. and which is still used to
'house the officials of the county.
The old market where slaves were
sold in the ante-bellum days is still
visible and brings to mind recollec
tions of the past when St. Louis was
the metropolis of the slave-owning
states of the Mississippi valley.
ONLY HAIR TONIC
From Tuesday's Dallv.
Last evening one of the- parties
who exercises supervision over their
fellow men noticed a car standing
out on Washington avenue and one
of the occupants engaged in taking
a drink out of a strange appearing
bottle and at once it was decided
that here was a case of some hard
ened booze hound partaking of his
favorite beverage and the party who
witnessed the drinking hastened on
down to the business section of the
city and poured the story into the
ear of the law, with the result that
Chief Jones and Officer Chandler mo
tored out to the scene of the report
ed battle with the booze and found
the car all right but the contents of
the many bottles that were found
proved to be not hard liquor, but
merely a highly scented brand of
hair toic. The parties with the car
were selling the tonic and while the
evidence was apparent that it had
been used to promote the inward kick
as well as being used as a hair dress
ing, it was not sufficient to cause
the arrest of the parties and they
were allowed to go on their way re
joicing and with the tonic still in
tact. Q. Z. SOCIETY MEETS
From Tuesday' Dally.
The Q. Z. society of the Presby
terian church was very pleasantly
entertained yesterday afternoon at
the farm home of Mr. and Mrs. Searl

some forty being present. The party
left the church in autos shortly af
ter 4 o clock and reaching the Dav
is home found a most pleasant rest
ing place, in the cool shade and in
viting surroundings of the home. Well
filled baskets of the good things to
eat had been provided and to this
the members did ample justice in
every way and at a late hour in the
evening returned homeward, tired
but well pleased with the outing and
charmed w'ith the hospitality afford
ed them at the Davis home.

That Mr. Douglass may find much

DECIDE MOONSKIN
ING NOT A SUCCESS
Parties Near Greenwood Find They
are Not Cut Out for Makers
of the Corn Juice.
From Monday's Dally.
Krom Monday's Dally
Saturday morning Sheriff C. D.
Q u in I in accompanied by William
Grebe drove out to the vicinitv of
Greenwood where they were joined
Karl Schmitt, one of the state agents
from the office of Gus Hyer.s. state
sheriff, and the party proceeded to
look over the situation there with
the view of locating anyone who
might be making the drink that in
ebriates as well as cheers and which
had been reported as being quite free
ly circulating in this portion of tiie
arid region of the U. S. A.
The only case discovered was that
of a home made coil and worm which
however was not in operation and
owners freely told the sheriff the
truth of the matter as far as they
knew the facts in the case. They
stated that they had intended at one
time of making a little "licker" for
their stomach's sake but the first
trial was so disgusting that they had
abandoned all further effort and the
arid condition was as great around
their home as any in the country.
The parties inthe case were evi
dently very sincere in their state
ments and the matter has been al
lowed to rest until the return of
County Attorney A. G. Cole from
Ohio. It is not thought that the par
ties will he given any severe punish
ment as their only offense apparent
ly was in having the coil on hand.

From Monday's Dally.
The teachers and officers of the
Christian church Sunday school yes
terday motored out to the state fish
eries near Gretna and spent the day

where the rainfall had been most
noticeable.

ORDER OF DE
MOLAY IS OR
GANIZED HERE
LAUNCHED UNDER SPONSORSHIP
OF NERRASXA CHAPTER
NO. 3, R. A. M.
From Tuesday's Daily.
The newest branch of the Mason
ic fraternity the Order of D'Molay,
was brought into being this afternoon
when the members of the Omaha
chapter of the order commenced the
work of the initation of the members
who have been secured in this city.
To speak of this order it is a new
departure in the field of Masonry
and affords to the youth of the land
the opportunity of gathering the les
ions of the great fraternity that will
tend toward better living and a high
er standard of manhood in the com
munities where the order is founded.
The Order of DeMolay is primarly
for the sons of Master Masons and
their friends and chums and was
brought into being at Kansas City in
March 191!, under the leadership of
Frank S. Landis. In a very short time
the order, which was then of a pure
ly local nature had drawn a mem
bership of 2.000 in Kansas City
alone.
The ritual of the order was pre
pared by Mr. Landis and Frank A.
Marshall of Kansas City. The work
of the order among the boys attrac
ted some little attention from among
the Mason.s of the west and among
these Dr. Zoro Clark of Omaha, one
of the Jeading members of the Ma
sonic fraternity in the west and this
bore fruit in the fact that Dr. Clark
became one of leaders in boosting the
cause of DeMolay in the United States
and assisted materially in bringing
it to the present high standard.
The leaders cf the Masonic order
soon realized the immense possibil
ities for good in the order and it was
soon nationalized and a grand coun
cil appointed to control the order.
The purpose of the order is to make
better men. The ritualistic work
teaches reverence, patritism, filial
love, clean living and good citizen
ship. Two degrees are offered in the
initatory work.
In this city the chapter of DeMo
lay will be sponsored by Nebraska
Chapter No. 3 R. A. M. and the work
of the boys will to some extent be
supervised,. by the higher branch of
the order.
Dr. Clark, who is the honorable
inspector general of the thirty-third
degree Masons of Nebraska, and Chief
Advisor of the Omaha council of the
Order of DeMolay was here today
conferring with the local Masons and
assisting in the work of securing the
starting of the chapter here.
