Booney Saved The Day. Col. Boone, the Fats' short stop, who was the brightest particular Starr in that organization, with a few exceptions, played a remarkable game. When a tine little fly came down in hia hands and he ducked and ran away from the ball, it wasall because Grasshopper Starr of the Leans yelled to Jim Burnett to gobble the sphere. Then when that nice little grounder came out and Boone was Starr gazing, it was Lee Arthur, the Fats’ giant third baseman, who wanted to get the persimmon and yelled to Booney, “It’s my ball, don’t let me step on you!’’ and this so rattled and un nerved him that except lor the beau tiful fly he sent almost out of sight, which was caught by Johansen for the Leans, he was almost oat of the game. Boone contends that Starr had fixed Lee Arthur to lose the game for the Fats, but that he would not stand for this and saved the game for the Fats as the score will show. Boone is thinking of joining the Pueblo Fans for the balance of the season, but don't want any grass hopper-Starr’s or sbuab-Arthur's to queer the game on him. Justice. Clear Creek.

Culley May Get Slice of Big Fortune. [The following article taken from the Louisville fKy.) Herald reads like a chapter from the Arabian Knights, the principals being an uncle and aunt of A. P. Culley; his mother’s brother and sister.—Ed.] Like a fairy legend of poor people coming into immense fortunes and becoming kings and queens is the story of Prof. C. W. Mattliis, of 759 Eighth St., and Mrs. Annie E. Gore, of 1613 William St., who expect to come into the tremendous estate of Lord Dillard, of Ireland, from whom they claim direct descent. Although a hundred years have passed since the death of Lord Dillard, none of his descendants have attempted to secure the immense fortune, which is one of the largest estates in the world. From father to son the story of the great estate has been handed down, and each in his turn has dreamed of the tremendous wealth which should be his own. Prof. Matfchis and Mrs. Gore have made a serious attempt to secure the wealth, and expect to be entitled to it in a few years. Clarence Brown of Elizabethtown, has written the officials in Dublin, and the records of the family will be opened and com pared with those kept here through many generations, for the family has kept trace of their ancestors back to the American Revolution, when Lord Dillard’s son came to this country and fought for the liberty of America from English rule. In 1780 Lord Dillard died, leaving a vast estate, which comprised thousands of acres of fertile land and many homes near Dublin. His son, William Dillard, had come to America, in 1700 and settled in Virginia. He enlisted in the Revolutionary war under General Israel Putnam, and was killed in the battie of Runker Hill. His son, James Dillard, moved to Kentucky and was one of the founders of Elizabethtown. His daughter, Nancy, married John Matthis, and was the mother of Prof. Matthis and Mrs. Gore. Resides these two in Louis ville, Kentucky, Mrs. Mandy Rrown of Cecelia, Ky., and Mrs. Maggie Rayne of Missouri, will inherit shares of the fortune, which has been the byword of the family for years back. A. P. Culley of Loup City, Neb., a nephew of Mrs. Gore, will start for Ireland in several months to deter mine the status of the estate. Prof. Matthis is a graduate of Eradenburg Academy and a doctor of philosophy. He is an applicant for a Carneigej pension for aged teachers. Mrs. Gore’s husband was Lieut. Dennis Gore, U. S. A. Montezuma Valley is “It.” The Montezuma Valley in south west Colorado seems to have an im mense attraction to our Loup City capitalists. Within the past few months they have, according to the Journal, published at Cortez, the county seat of that valley, purchased $60,000 worth of property there. Geo. Truelsen, just returned from a trip to the Montezuma country last week, purchased a quarter section, paying therefor $8,000, on which the wheat harvest will realize 50 bushels per acre. Geo. and J. H. Lee also last week purchased a quarter section there for $4,000. On the 17th of September, Will Zimmerman will take a party of some forty land seekers to the Montezuma valley, from Loup City and surrounding country, and undoubtedly they will take large Holdings. To give some idea of this country which is attracting the at tention of our people, we asked Mr. Zimmerman a few questions of in terest about that country, having a touch of the fever in our veins, and found the valley comprises 60,000 acres. There are 3,000 acres of orchard, half of which are bearing. About 100,000 young trees have been set out the past spring. The soil is claimed to be of unusual productiveness and two great irrigation ditches fed by a swift rushing and deep river 1,000 feet higher than the valley gives abundant water for all purposes. Land values are from $25 to $40 per acre, and it isclaimed that when they have better railroad facilities, which are promised for the very near future, the values will easily be doubled. The delegation which will leave here on the 17th of September will get a round fare rate of $35.45, and if you want to know more about the coun try and facts relating thereto than we have space to devote to this story, see W. D. Zimmerman and he will tell you all you may want to know. On and after August 26, 1907, “The Overland Limited” trains, numbers 1 and 2, and “The Los Angeles Limit ed” trains, numbers 7 and 8, will handle interstate business only, and passenge/s without proper interstate tickets will not be carried on these trains. Mileage tickets will be honored on these trains for interstate trips only. According to an opinion handed down by the attorney general, saloons ; tppst close all day of primary election. SEEING THE COMET Bob Mathew Not a Suc cessful Astronomer. From Saturday’s Lincoln Star. A desire to see the morning comet under the most satisfactory circum stances of a pretty girl’s company in a sail boat while .the flower scented breezes of early morning were blow ing led to a series of embarrassing consequences to Robert Mathew, who is a practicing attorney in Loup City, and a Lincoln young lady tliao accom panied him. Mr. Mathew and his friend rode horseback to Capital beach this morn ing, about 3:30. They had made ar rangements with the management last night for a sail boat, and it stood rocking in the water at the foot of the pier when they arrived. With a light lunch that they had brought along and a few fishing lines for luck, they piled into the boat, and raised the sail. There was a good breeze and straight as an arrow the boat shot out into the center of the lake. When the middle of the lake was reached Mr. Mathew attempted to lower the sails so that the two could gaze at the brilliant comet that light ed up the eastern heavens. It was not the lowering kind. It could be taken down when the boat was at rest at the pier, but not while it was in mid water. This was embarrassing in it self. The sail must come down or the pleasure of the morning would be lost and the sacrifice of sleep that had been necessitated by this trip would not be compensated for. The jib-sail was jerked down but the main sail could not be released._,They could not rise in the boat for fear of tipping it over and the canvas was too tough to be torn loose. While the two pondered and wor ried, the breeze began to grow stronger and the boat rolled recklessly, they thought. It shot around in a circle and the occupants were juggling with death when they had come for the utmost pleasure. They yelled for help but there was only a small boy with nothing more than a fish pole, within hearing distance, and he could do nothing. While the girl screamed and the man yelled for help, the boat kept up its circling and rocking and threatened to upset at any moment/?. They yelled to the boy to bring a row boat and help them out, but he was heedless to their cries of distress. At last while the wind ceased its play ror a few moments, the pole of the other sail and hands were used to shove the boat to shore. Finally it was w ithin a few yards, but the water was still knee deep. It would go no farther. The girl was brave, and with one leap she jumped from the boat into the dirty mud and water. A moment more and she was on dry land but far from dry herself. The girl was out and now Mr. Mathew thought it was his turn to escape from the cruel waves. He stepped to the front end of the boat to make the leap, but a sudden gust of wind struck the sail and the boat shot back upon the rolling waters of the lake. The girl was safe, but he never learned to swim and did not seem to know what he could do. The girl solved the problem. While he was trying to keep the waves from rising over the rail into the boat the girl was on a dead run for the boat house. There was no one there, but she was equal to the occasion. The boats were all chained and locked, but that did not matter. One stroke of an axe and the girl had a boat free. A moment more and the oars were grasped and the girl was off to the rescue. The rescue was accomplished and now the couple are safe at home in sweet contentTthat only a small boy was present to see their distress and there is no way for the news to leak out.
