PRESIDENT SETS FIRE
PREVENTION DAY, OCT. 9
Washington, Sept. 21. President
Harding in a proclamation issued to
day, called upon the country to set
aside Monday, October 9, as fire pre
vention day. and to observe it in such
a manner as to impress upon the peo
ple the "Importance of precaution
ary measures for the avoidance of
"It has long been a reproach of
our country." the president said in
the proclamation, "that by reason of
poor construction, inadequate facil
ities for fire prevention and all too
general carelessness about possible
causes of conflagration, our fire
waste reaches figures year after year
which are not approached in any
other country in the world."
That's why when tailors and oth
ers advertise that the immediate pas
sage of the tariff bill is to be a sig
nal for a general price advance on
all woolen goods, buncoing in a large
measure of the public. For present
prices are based on the after war
surplus and the fact that the emer
gency tariff has practically been an
embargo to help use those surpluses
One of the most uninteresting de
vices we can think of is an alarm
clock that insists on ringing at the
usual hour regardless of the time a
fellow wants to get up.

GAME FROM CEDAR
Score of 6 to 3 is Besult of Battle
Locals Have One Bad Inning
that Piles up Score.
Yesterday afternoon Manager Bob
Stivers and his warriors from Cedar
Creek motored down to mix it up
with the local baseball team and as
a result of the meeting the Cedar
Creen team returned home defeated
by the score of 6 to 3.
The locals started right out after
j the goat of the visitors and main
tained a ciear ieaa umu me seventn
inning. In the opener Herold hit a
nasty one to left garden and was
perched safely on first base and
O'Donnell then attempted to sacri
fice but he got it too far and Mei
singer, the visitors' pitcher, threw
Pete out at second. "Werden also at
tempted a bunt and which also re
sulted in Meisinger getting O'Don
nell at second and Werden was also
nipped at first base.
The first blood was drew by the
locals in the third inning. Herold
opened with a fly to left field and
was followed by O'Donnell who tried
to for a sacrifice but flew out to
short. Werden laid down a clean bunt
that advanced Pete to the second
station and when Shepherd rapped a
two bagerto second, Pete scored.
In the fourth frame the locals
made their second score. Joe Mc
Carthy, the village Waite Hoyt, hit
one of Rudolph's slants to the center
field and advanced when William
Haivey Mason placed a real bunt in
to the diamond that the visitors
could not handle and which left both
players safe. Sprecher was out on a
grounder to Meisinger. Frank Grad
oville, the clever young shortstop,
made possible the first score with a
rap to center on which McCarthy
scored. Herold closed the inning on
an infield drive to second.
Another was chalked up for the
Plattsmouth boys in the sixth when
Ed Gradoville, who did the back
stopping, was hit iu the ribs and giv
en his base and advanced when Mc
Carthy placed a hot one through the
pitcher. -When Frank Gradoville hit
to right garden Ed scored in a hot
race for the plate and Koop, the vis
itors' catcher who was blocking the
line, was threw for a five yard loss
The fatal seventh inning saw the
visitors come from behind and tie
the score our sterlings had been pil
ing up. Shinn was hit on the heel by
McCarthy and sent to first and Har
old Koop followed and was safe when
Werden failed to hold his grounder
and both men registered when
Reichart hit to center. On the infield
hit of Knutson that Herold failed
to hold. Reichart scored and the
hopes of the visitors' rose to fever
heat with the prospects of victory,
but they were soon dashed as the
locals in their half of the inning
came back and hung up two safe ones
for a lead. O'Donnell hit to right
field and was able to score on the
grounder of Werden to short. Ed
Gradoville secured a hit through j
short and while it was only good
for one base by the time the rival i
team had jazzed the ball around the
diamond Gradoville had registered
at the plate.
The last run of the locals came in
the eighth when Mason was hit by
Meisinger, sacrificed by Frank Grad
oville and registered when Herold
hit to center for a safety.
The visitors have a good and clean
organization of ball players as can
be found in any place of the same
size of Cedar Creek and certainly
have reason to be well pleased with
their showing this season on the dia
mond. Th tabulated score of the game is

Coatman Hardware Co.,
Jackson, Cal., Sept. 21. One body
was missing today among those of
the forty-seven gold miners who
perished from gas in the Argonaut
shaft. By a whim of fate it was the
body of William Fessell, the man
who wrote on the rock with the
smoke of his miner's lamp a farewell
message for all the doomed forty
seven. It was believed possible that he
evidently a leader of the stricken
shift had crept from the chamber
of death to a higher level, hoping
to find some means of escape for his
comrades. The men from the bureau
of mines were certain, however, that
they countey forty-seven bodies last
Monday night. They considered it
most likely that Fessell's body was
buried by a cave-in since the work
of removal began.
The state industrial accident com
mission has been instructed to cut
away and preserve that portion of
the stone in the mine drift on which
Fessell burned with his lamp the
only message left by the miners.
Clarence E. Jarvis. member of the
state board of control, said the stone
would be kept by the state in mem
ory of the victims.
The words written on the stone,
Jarvis said, were:
"Gas getting bad, 3 o'clock."
Below the figure "4" had been
burned and a portion of the letter
"O." Fessell is believed to have suc
cumbed to the gas at that point.

Crifro.p.eto Consolidation of His Or
r 3 - id

Loop No Reply Given.
Mike Cantillion, president of the
Dakota league, which comprises four
cities in South Dakota and a similar
number in North Dakota, is anxious
to interest magnates of the Nebraska
league in a scheme to organize a
new Nebraska-Dakota loop. Presi
dent Mike, known in Lincoln by
reason of his former ownership of
the Des Moines club of the Western
league sixteen years ago, has written
several Nebraska league owners pro
poring that the four best towns of
the Dakota circuit be linked with
the four best cities of the Miles loop
in forming the new organization.
The executive of the Dakota league
has heard rumblings of Sioux City's
retirement from the Western league
and hints that Sioux town would be
a desirable acquisition for his pro
posed N-D loop, while he suggests
that Lincoln also miuht wish to re
tire from the Nebraska league to
take membership in the new circuit.
Grand Island and Norfolk of the Ne
braska league are mentioned by Can
tillion as possible members, while
Council Bluffs, he says, also might
be taken into the fold.
Owners of the Lincoln franchise in
the Nebraska league said today that
they were not in position to give the
Dakota league president a definite
reply. Negotiations for the sale of
Landis field to a syndicate of Lin
coln men who aspire to place the
Nebraska capital city in the West
ern league may come to a head with
in the near future. The syndicate
will ask the local magnates to put
a price on their park, both on a rent
al and outright basis, and in case the
price is right the deal may be closed
at an early date. In that event, Lin
coln would step back into the west
ern league. Lincoln Star.

SALUTING IN THE

Away with Nuisance that was
Unpopular with All.
Washington. Sept. 22. Army reg
ulations are soon to be amended to
do away with much of the exchange
of salutes between officers and men
in public places.
Experience during the war, when
large numbers of officers were in
Washington and other centers of
military effort has convinced war
department officials that strict ad
herence to existing regulations made
the required exchange of salutes up
on every meeting a nuisance, and
led "to a general disregard of the
regulations among officers by com
The revised regulations will re

both officers and men to military
reservations, except where they may

House of Deputies Overrules Em
phatic Protest by Delegate
Portland, Ore., Sept. 22. The ses-'

night was enlivened by an attack by
Rcswell Page of Beaver Dam, Va.,
upon a proposed new prayer in the
"You have introduced into this.
! the most sacred of all ouf services,"
he said, "new prayers and new cere-
' monials, distasteful to many of us.
You pray to the blessed Virgin Mary.
I don't care what the people of Bos
ton, or New York, or Milwaukee
think, I represent the people of old
Virginia and know what they think.
I protest, sir, against this prayer."
The protest was unavailing. The
whole service as revised was adopt
ed. A change was made in a prayer
which read: "Have mercy on all
Jews, Turks, infidels and heretics."
The words of the new prayer areH

In proposing the change the Rev.
Dr. C. L. Slattery of New York, sec
retary of the prayer book revision
commission, stated: "I think, as
Christians, .that we should show a
spirit of charity of Christianity ' to
the Jewish people. This prayer is an
insult to them. By removing it we
are extending the hand of Christian
fellowshop to them."
