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.

Our A. P. 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,

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.

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
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
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
