THE EDITOR WINS THE BADGE.
The FUttsmonth Wheel Clob Hold Their
First Meet and Contest For the
Club Badge Hick Predict t
Kain Other Notes.
The members of the Plattsmouth
Wheel club bad their llrst go for the
Dew gold medal emblematic of the
club championship at the fairgrounds
race track last night and an exciting
race it was, to be sure. The admis
sion was free, and although the partic
ipants fully expected their efforts
would be watched by u large audience,
they bad no idea that the first race
would attract so many sight-seers as
were on hand. The large attendance
simply went to prove that bicycling is
a popular sport. But the race.
There were eight entries. Dr. Mar
shall fixed the handicaps and they
were announced as follows: Will liv
ers, 2 minutes; Walter Thomas and C
S. Sherman. 1:30: J. K. Pollock. 1:15
Louie Thomas, 1 minute; Fred
Lehnhoff and E. II. Schulhoff,
4ri seconds: Tom Patterson, scratch.
The start was made at 7:4-5, and it
was full of interest from the very first
The distance was three miles, or six
turns of the track, and after three laps
had been run, the riders were so well
bunched that the outcome was really
in doubt to the very last. First place
and the medal fell to C. S. Sherman,
whose actual time was 10:02. J. K.
Pollock second and Fred Lehnhoff
third. The latter went the three
miles in a trifle under 9:2-5, and thus
scored the best time in the race.
The handicapping, aside from the
fact that the scratch man was placed
too far behind the other riders, was
well done, and at the finish less than
one hundred feet separated the winner
and the fifth man in the race.
It is the intention of the club to
have a sort of racing carnival every
week, and in addition to a race for the
medal, a quarter and half-mile dash
will be had previous to the principal
event. The admission will be free to
all of the meets.
The Glen wood Times is worried al
most beyond endurance over the pre
tended fact that Plattsmouth is on the
decline and cannot recover. Platts
mouth wants no sympathy from the
Times. Our merchants are doing a
substantial business, despite the gen
eral depression. That free ferry across
the Missouri which allows people to
lourney hither to trade, where more
and better bargains are offered in a
year than in Glenwood were the town
to live a century is the cause of the
enmity of the Glenwood papers to
ward Plattsmouth. This town has no
miarrel with Glenwood. The latter
village is really too insignificant to de
serve any notice.
Did you notice that the winner of
the cold medal and the w inner of the
time prize in last niRhtraclub champ
ionsliip race both rode Kambler
wheels? Ramblers speak for them
selves, and isn't it rather plain that
if you are contemplating the purchase
of a wheel that the Rambler is the one
to buy. No question about it they
ride easier than any in the market.
Lehnhoff Bros, have the agency. Ret
ter see them as to Rambler prices.

The wheel club members have se
cured the right to construct a new
racing track on the old Chicago avenue
base ball park, and work will be com
mencedon the grading at once. It is
hoped to have the track ready for the
next race for the club's gold medal.
The track will be a third of a mile in
circumference, and, owing to its proxi
mity to town, will make the club's
races more popular than ever.

Hicks Say a Storm.
Today has been one of the roost tor
rid we hare thus far experienced this
season, the thermometer registering
around about the hundred mark in the
shade. Itev. Irl 11. Hicks, "the storm
prophet, has successfully called the
turn on the heated term, and says:
"From 17th to 22d will prove a 'heated
term' which state will continue up to
and through the reactionary 25th and
26th, unless abated by storms about
lSthorl9th, or 25th or 26th. The
month will end in the midst of great
heat, with a threatening barometer,
and possibly active storms moving
from the west. Look out for drought
in following months." Col. Hicks'
weather forecasts are rather obtuse
and conditional, but let us hope that
his storm will put in an appearance on
schedule time, as successfully as did
his "heated term."

The readers of this paper will be
pleased to learn that there is at least
one dreaded disease that science has
been able to cure in all its stages and
that is catarrh. Hall's Catarrh Cure
is the only positive cure now known to
the medical fraternity. Catarrh being
a constitutional disease, requires a
constitutional treatment. Hall's Cat
arrh Cure is taken internally, act
ing directly upon the blood and
mucous surfaces of the system, thereby
destroying the foundation of the dis
ease, and giving the patient strength
by building up the constitution and
assisting nature in doing its work.

in its curative powers, that they offer
