The Flattsmouth club and a few of
their earnest supporters were the only
ones that saw any hope for oar boys
at the start, but the belief that our
boys "had the game" gained ground at
every inning. Some of the boys ob
both sides were at times a little con
fused and made errors. Lacy, the
catcher in the Flattsmouth club, mad
no error in any way throughout the
game. "Tap" thiew the ball to a base
man; it meant "man out"; he let no
balls pass him during the entire game
and was always on the 'spot" when a
"foul tip" came along.
Kinser, Pitcher of our dub "did one
end' of several double plays in hue
style, and run" men to 1st Ii. in good
shape. Smith, Captain and 1st 13.,
made no mistakes in fielding and "did"
some of the plays in grand style, as
did 2nd S. Gerrans, who also played
in a manner that surprised every one
and even Ed. himself. Duke did
things in fine shape at the bat. was the
boss base stealer, but had no chance
out in field where the Weeping Waters
never knecked the ball, to "do him
self proud." Sessions in C. F. was do
ing his pari with a sore hand so sore
he could not write at his desk that
day, and although he did not catch
every ball hit by his epponents, foul
r otherwise, he made the best record
at the bat of any one ia the game.
Patterson made no errors in any part
but played little more than his share.
Swift, of 3d, Ii. did his duty nobly,
nene could do better; all were sur
prised to see hew Fat "shrunk" to
the ball when it came that way.
O'Rourke fills the bill at every turn;
Even the ladies were often heard to
exclaim, "Oh, ain't he splendid!"
Morris always plays just right and
makes no mistakes. "W. W. had some
fine players, and boys who commanded
the admiration gf all present, and a
great many really felt sorry that there
was not some way to let them be on
the winning side; they deserved great
credit for their manly efforts. At the
3d inning the captain of the W. W.
club objected to the umpire and the
dispute ended in a change of umpires.
Johnson, the umpire withdrew from
the game and Attorney McLennan
was chosen for remainder of the
Everyone present enjoyed the game
immensely except those who had bet
on the wrong club, and although the
score ran up higher than there was
any necessity for, every point made
ou eimei aiuo was mane uy unman t
playing. Ir. one of the plays made.
Ashmund threw ball from extieme
R. F. to 3d B. and "Bob" -nailed it
down" as it came in. Many double
plays were made by our boys. Bel
lows' pitching rather bothered our
boys but his catcher as well.
It was fine sport enjoyed by all and
both clubs have reason to be pioud of
the work done by their members. B.

At The Cass County Fair Grounds.
From the Dally State Democrat.
It was during the progress of the
Cass county fair at Flattsmouth last
week that the Davis sewing machine
came out once more victori
ous. The Domestic was the only com
peLitor on the ground for the pre mi
urn and between the two the fight was
made. The Domestic man objected
in the first place to a committee of
laiies to make the award and judge
the merits of the machine. To meet
this objection Mr. Jno. Way man, pro
prietor of the iron works and foundry
in Flattsmouth, was selected, which
made the committee stand as follows:
Jno. Waytuan, Mrs T. Thomas, Mrs.
Jno. Cummins. The Domestic man
then demanded that the committee re
quire the Davis machine to be taken
apart which was promptly done by the
Davis operator in the short time of
twenty-three minutes from the time
he began to the time he had his ma
chine together and running as though
nothing had happened. The com
mittee then required the Domestic to
be taken apart, which required three
quarters of an hour and was not put
together again on the fair grounds.
The committee then awarded the first
premium to the Davis over all for
simplicity of construction and su
perior workmanship, thus ending the
contest in favor of superior merit.

In the following remarkable state
ment, William J. Coughlin of Somer
ville, Mass., says: "In the fall of 1876
I was taken with a violent bleed
ing of the lungs followed by a se
vere cough. I was so weak at one
time that I could not leave my bed.
In the summer of 1877 I was admitted
to the City Hospital. While there the
doctors said I had a hole in my left
lung as big as a half dollar. I expend
ed over a hundred dollars in doctors
and medicines. I gave up hope, but a
friend told me of DR. HALL'S BAL
SAM FOR THE LUNGS. I got a
bottle to satisfy him, when to my sur
prise and gratification, 1 commenced
to feel better, and to-day feel in better
spirits than I have the past three years.
I write this hoping that every one
afflicted with Diseased Lungs will be
induced to take Dr. WM. HALL'S
BALSAM FOR THE LTINGS and be
conviuced that CONSUMPTION
CAN BE CURED. I can positively
say that it has done more good than
all the other medicines I have taken
during my sickness." Sold by drug
