WINS CLOSE GAME
OF BALL SUNDAY
J5rch.nts cf this City Lose by Score
of 3 to 2 in Heal Baseball
Battle at Nebraska City.
From Monday's Taily.
Yesterday afternoon the Mer
chants baseball team of this city
motored down to Nebraska City and
engaged the Eagles of that city in
an exhibition of the national pastime
and which resulted in a victory for
the Oioe county team by the score
of 3 to 2 altho Plattsmouth outhit
their opponents but the breaks al
lowed the Eagles to pus-h the neces
sary run over the plate for a win.
Connors for Plattsmouth pitched a
good game and allowed only four
scattered hits in the whole nine in
nings but errors at the critical time
allowed the victory to slip to the
Eagles and the fact that the Platts
mouth players were unlucky in their
work on the bases. Gude did the tos
sing for the Otoe team and was nick
ed for eight hits in the battle. Mc
Carthy secured two hits, one for
three bags, and Dill Mason lammed
a two-sacker to the lef,t garden that
looked good for a homer, but Beason,
the fleet-footed left fielder of the
Eagle, was able to get the ball and
returned it so that Bill was stopped
at the second station.
The local team will play at "Ween
ing Water Wednesday and goes to
Glenwood on next Sunday.

police judge's office and doffed the
judicial ermine to retire to his home,
he received a hurry call to return
and open up the Palace of Justice
that a dispute among two of our

The court found on his arrival
that there was a complaint filed by
Chief of Police Barclay against B.
J. Halstead in which the defendant
was charged with fighting and the
object of his attack was Frank Batt
man. a resident of the south part of
From the statements mnde by both
Mr. Halstead and Mr. Battman it
seems that the affair occurred in the
Halstead meat market or South 6th
street, and arose in the first place
over the question of a claim of the
meat market man that he said had
not been paid while Mr. Battman
contended it had and from the verb
al argument the affair merged into
active warfare and soon the parties
were into it. Mr. Battman received
a rather disfigured optic in the me
lee and as he is not very active, was
the loser of the confer::
The matter was reported to the
police, and Chief Barclay took up the
case and after hearing the evidenre
in court. Judge Weber announced
that a fine of $25 and costs would
be assessed against Mr. Halstead.
The defendant announced that he
desired to appeal the case to the dis
trict court and bond was fixed in
the sum of $50 for the appeal, and.
owing to the lateness of the hour,
Mr. Halstead was given until this
morning to produce the fine or the
amount of the appeal in the case.
HAS VERY CLOSE
CALL FROM SER
Sterling Harris. Son of County Com
missioner, Has Bough Time
With Bucking Horse.
From Monday rallv
Yesterday morning Sterling Har
ris, 15-year-old son of County Com
missioner and Mrs. C. F. Harris, had
a very nnrrow escape from serious in
jury at the farm home of George II.
Shrader north of Union.
The young man had spent" the
night at the Shrader home and Sun
day morning was engeged in riding
a young horse in the farmyard when
the animal became unruly and start
ed bucking with all the vim of a real
western mustang and after several
bucks. Sterling was thrown over the
horse's head and fell to the ground,
his foot catching in bridle rein and
the horse then started to run to the
barn, dragging young Harris along
over the rough ground and after be
ing dragged some seventy-five yards
the rein broke, releasing him. The
horse dashed into the barn and had
the boy been held by the rein a few
seconds longer he would probably
have been very seriously injured as
the horse ran into the barn door.
Dr's B. F. and J. F. Brendel of
Murray were called and dressed the
injuries and an examination failed
to disclose any broken bones which
was very fortunate. He is resting
quite easily now but still feels the
effects of the injuries.

TRUCE OF H. M. S0ENNICHSEN
CONVEYING PARTY FROM
DEN, IS WRECKED.
'"rem Tuesday's Xal'iy
Last night about 11:00 when the
truck belonging to the H. M. Soen
nichsen ftcre was returning to this
city with a party that had been in
attendance at the Ak-Sar-Ben show,
the truck ran into the ditch near
the turn at the Nord farm on the
Platte bottom and as the result oe
cassioned some very painful injuries
to Mr. Soennichsen as well as knock
ing off one front and one rear wheel
of the truck and shaking up all of
the occupants of the truck.
The truck was driven by William
Mendenhall, who is in the employ of
Mr. Soennichsen and the party was
traveling at a very good rate of
f-necd, to reach home as early as pos
sible. It was quite dark along the
roadway and Mr. Mendenhall states
that he was unable to see far en
ough in advance to glimpse the turn
in the road and when he saw it, it
was too late to make it, and as a
consequence the car went into the
ditch. The driver says that the weeds
are quite high there and more or less
dust flying prevented him from see
ing the turn in time.
As the car struck the ditch it turn
ed over on. one side and Mr. Soen
nichsen was pitched out of the car,
over the steering wheel and Mr. Men
denhall, with whom he was riding,
and as he was thrown he lit on a
barbed wire fence inflicting a num
ber of painful cuts and injuries and
alighting on his face on the ground
was quite badly bruised and skinned
up. He had several cuts on his legs
from cither the wire or pieces of the
broken windshield, that necessitated
the services of a physician to dress.
Edward Donat and Carl Ofe were
seated in the rear of the truck and
were not seriously injured beyond
being bruised up some and as was al
so Mr. Mendenhall.
The injured man was brought in
by other amoi.sts returning from Om
aha and taken to his home where
he is bein:,' cared for. The truck was
brought in later and found to be
more or less battered up with two
wheels broken and other damages
including the broken windshield.
This accident was the only dis
agreeable feature of the trip to Om
aha and while serious enough it is
fortunate that no one was injured
