Close Season With Two Victories
Tho baseball season was closed Tues
day afternoon so farnsMcCook and the
Central Nebraska league are concerned
and the event was celebrated by tho
local team by two conclusive victories
over their old enemy tho Holdrege com
Mondays game resulted in McCooks
favor by a score of 12 to 6 Teel was in
the box for tho visitors and the locals
landed on him quite promiscuously
Tuesdays game was closer the score
was 7 to 5 in McCooks favor Ahlin
pitched for Holdrege and at tho outstart
it looked like the locals were in for
troublo but a bunch of errors by tho
visitors in the fourth inning placed Mc
Cobk in tho lead which they maintained
to tho close of the game
These two games marked the close of
tho season Giltnor Minden and Red
Cloud having dropped out of tho league
McCook and Holdrege were the only re
maining clubs McCook disbanded her
team on Tuesday evening It is under
stood that Holdrege intends to maintain
her organization which is to be strength
ened by additions from McCook and
Minden and that they contemplate a
-trip through Iowa
A number of the McCook players have
already departed for homo Wilson the
big first baseman has gone to Ord
Townsend goes to Tecumseh Bender
the mighty little catcher has departed
for Sutton It is stated that Bender
and Rhodes will join tho Holdrege com
bination for the remainder of the season
Bender admits he may join them a
little latter
Thus has closed a very satisfactory if
short season So far as McCook is con
cerned we understand that the club
disbands in good condition financially
and perhaps it is just as well as later in
tho season it seems to be difficult to
keep up tho interest and receipts and
there is danger of shortage in finances
McCook has had in the field the best
team that has ever carried her name
and all parties concerned are to be con
gratulated in the outcome as tho locals
would doubtless have been the pennant
winners had the games of the schedule
been completed
It Went Off All At Once
Master Frank McAninch who lives
over south of the city was quite pain
fully burned Wednesday of this week
while burning some powder in a horn
flask He was engaged in pouring
out the powder and touching a match
to it While holding the horn and
applying a match to it tho entire con
tents of tho horn were exploded The
lad was painfully burned about hands
and face His clothing caught fire but
a jump into a convenient water tank
extinguished the blaze Applying lini
ment to the burns did not help the sit
uation and he was a sorry looking lad
when ho arrived in the city and secured
medical aid

Concerning the Junior Normal School
the ghegg bixry debate
The Gregg Bixby debate last evening
was one of the star attractions of the
normal entertainment course The court
room was well filled and it is safe to
state that all were were pleased with
the entortainment and instruction pro-
vided The question discussed was
Resolved That the right of the ballot
shall be extended to women Miss
Laura A Gregg of Omaha affirmed and
Dr A L Bixby of the Lincoln Journal
denied Miss Gregg is a keen cutter
has her argument well in hand and gives
utterance in an elocutionary oratorical
style quite impressive The doctor is
strenuously dissimilar in style of utter
ance and mode of debate but not a whit
the less effective Ho makes a clever
and essential foil for the more ponderous
assaults of the ailirmant gives zest to a
debate which would otherwise approach
heaviness In the colonels shiftiness
he has recourse to and brings into action
his poetic muse with effect and flavor
Withal it was a clever affair with a suffi
cient element of humor yet not frivo
lous After the debate Miss Gregg se
cured the signatures of a number of
misguided women to her doctrine but
the doctor advised his friends to make
their escape as speedily as possible
governor mickeys address
The court room was well filled Tues
day evening on the occasion of the de
livery by Governor Mickey of his lecture
on Character Building The governor
does not pose as an orator but he has
some powerful strong convictions con
cerning what constitutes a good and use
ful citizen and what should go into the
matter of building up a sound useful
Christian character and he just tells
his hearers what he thinks about it in
his plain simple direct and unembel
lished style The governor believes in
Christian character and urged upon the
teachers and others present tho supremo
importance of building a moral and re
ligious character in the child while cul
tivating the intellectual and esthetic na
ture of the pupil The governor has a
homely way of presenting his ideas and
an archaic style of illustrating them
but his views are wholesome and whole-
souled and worthwile
