Their Waterloo
The Haskell Indians who defeated the
McCook club in two games Wednesday
and Thursday of last week met their
Waterloo at Minden on the following
Friday and Saturday Minden took
Fridays game by a score of 12 to it and
Saturdays contest by iS to 2 In Sat
urdays game besides having the Kear
ney battery they were reinforced by two
professional ball players from Omaha
and they didnt do a thing to the
The overwhelming riefeut of the Indi
ans on Saturday is still further explained
by the fact that the Indians pitcher
was kidnapped Friday evening and
taken to Kearney by two females and
returned from Kearney Saturday mdrn
ing at ten oclock in a somewhat intoxi
cated condition Minden made fourteen
of her eighteen scores in two innings
It is stated that the manager of the
Indians quit them at Minden and that
Captain Gravelleis managing them now
The Indians are reported to have become
demoralized after the second inning of
Saturdays game Dame Rumor also
has it that some traveling men went the
limit on the Indians in Saturdays game
and had to borrow postage stamps to
write for money to get them out of town
The Indians defeated Franklin Tues
day by a score of 9 to 1 Arapahoes
Tuesday defeated the Smilhfield club
by a score of ir to 2
Slivers Sadly Slaughtered
The annual five inning Fats vs Leans
gauie was pulled off Tuesday afternoon
before a goodly audience with the cus
lomarj and amusing particulars and the
usual result
When the game opened the gladiators
were arrayed as followeth for the fray

The Beef Eaters were captained by
Frank Everist and the Slivers by W V
Gage The score was 14 to S in favor of
the heavy weights who owe their vic
tory largely to Frank Everists unap
proachable windworks and to the sad
fact that Dr Gages mascots curves
were even more puzzling and unex
pected to Ed Cann than they were to
the fatmen
Doubled the Yield
H W Campbell the soil culture man
came up from his experimental farm at
Bird City Kansas Sunday via Omaha
Mr Campbell says that while Kansas is
pretty well seared that the crops on his
farm raised about double the amount of
wheat to the acre this year as compared
with the crops of farmers in his section
who farmed under the old method in
fact this season has given a most thorough
opportunity for testing bis theory and
methods of farming in the semi arid dis
tricts and has thoroughly convinced all
who have seen it of its practicabilitj and
merit There are no skeptics in his
locality now Holdrege Progress
Same as Domestic Orders
Under late order of the postoffice de
partment the McCook can
now issue orders direct payable in the
the Philippine Islands Cuba Porto
Rico or Canada at the same cost and
under the same rules and regulations as
regular domestic money orders This
will not only simplify the matter but
will considerably cheapen these orders
especially those sent to Canada where
the cost is greatly reduced
School Board Meeting
The board of education held a regular
monthly session Monday evening A
number of claims were allowed Mrs
Ida E White of Omaha Nebraska

players full of confidence of victory and
up until the closing innings it looked as
though they might win out as they
finished their firfet half of the eighth in
ning one score to the good 6 to 5
Failing to score thereafter the visitors
were defeated in one of the closest and
prettiest games ever witnessed in Mc
Cook by a score of 7 to 6 the winning
two scores being made by McCook in
the last half of the ninth The line up
was as follows
