The curtain was rolled up on the
baseball season in these parts yes
terday afternoon when Manager
Johnnie Wolff and his colts journey
ed down to the peaceful little town
of Union and engaged the baseball
team of that city in nine innings of
the national pastime. The attend
ance was very pleasing as the weath

of Union a chance to shake off the
lethargy of the winter season and
tune u ptheir voices on the bleach
ers in rooting for their team.
As is generally the case the Un
ion team is one of the best in the
county and has many of the old vet
erans of the last few seasons in the
lineup and who have made the city
by the banks of the Weeping Water
famous as the home of ball players.
For the game yesterday Union had
imported a hurler from the Weeping
Water team but his work was not
of the best and in the pinches he
was hit to advanfage by the Platts
For the Plattsmouth team Wil
liam Harvey Mason was sent to the
mound by Manager Wolff and re
leased all the pent up energy of the
winter in his tossing and kept the
Union batters guessing all the way
through his five innings in the box
and only one run was garnered by
the opposition in this time. Joe Mc
Carthy who did the work on the
mound in the last four innings did
not receive the best of support .and
while he was not hit effectively a
number of errors allowed the visi
tors to tally several scores. Both

to please the fans who were present.
Manager Wolff states that the
team still has need of a number of
players and if there are any in the
community who have been conceal

on the blaze and which was not only
unsuccessful but brought upon the

Prominent Iowa Farmer Breeder, of
Whiting, Heads Missouri River
The Missouri River Farmers' asso

Whiting, Iowa, one of the progressive
farmer-stockmen of the corn belt.
The Cassady properties of several
thousand acres at Whiting in the
Missouri river bottom represent the
best development along the river sec
tion. For many years the Cassady
farms have been extensively devoted
to cattle breeding and feeding, ont
of the foremost purebred Hereford
herds being maintained there. As
much of the Cassady land is operated
by tenants, a system of tenant leases
looking to permanency and the build
ing up of the soil's fertility has been
worked out and applied with very
decided success. The Cassady leases
offer a solution of the tenant problem
in this county.

"This is not a plan for private

hundred and eighty thousand dollars
per year, besides supplying the peo
ple constant and reliable electric
service for less than five cents per
kilowatt, for which they are now
paying thirteen cents.
"Five hundred dollars per day
paid into the city treasury wouid
help a lot toward paying expenses
of every kind, also reduce our taxes
to a minimum.
If a California town can pay all
its expenses by owning an oil well,
Plattsmouth can do the same Dy har
nessing a better proposition which
is the last waters of the Platte v hich
is wasting itself right nt our door.
The Plattsmouth PuHi Owner

exploit the people but assembled for
tha purpose of bringing into the
hands of the people the control of its
public utilities upon which the life
and comfort of the common people

near the real cost of production.
"The Plattsmouth Public Owner

energy toward relieving the people
of their excessive tax burdens, to
build up and beautify and make n
useful community one that will on
courage a greater population, not
forgetting our farmer neighbors
whose burdens are also heavy.
"The Public Ownership League s
