LINCOLN TEAM A HUMMER
Will Play Three Games in Tope
ka—Then Go To Denver
Denver won the second game
of the opening series in a rat
tling ten inning contest, the
score being 1 to 0. This lone
score was made on a steal home
by a Denver player, which ordin
arily never would have succeed
ed, but the bare faced burglary
was made against such heavy odd
of winning that it came ns a sur
prise and thus was a success.
The giii ie itt Hie Beach Sunday
between the Denver and Lincoln
clubs was a joy to the fans who
attended. The Antelopes again
demonstrated their ability with
the pole stick and when the thing
dosed it was found that nine
luscious caster eggs were chalk
ed up against the Denver boys
while the Lincoln club bad four
credit marks. Jake Wolverton
winged a good game and held
the heavy hitting Grizzlies to
one lone hit, while the Lincoln
bunch knocked out an even doz
en from the hand of Peter Kh
man. However, the fact is ap
parent from what we have seen
tf the Denver club that they
have certainly a strong aggrega
tion, and will lie found up cIorp
to the top.
Lincoln left Sunday night for
three games in Topeka and three
in Denver, and will return Sun
day for a game that afternoon at
the Beach with the Wichita Tz
zios, another strong bunch.
Denver came to Lincoln in a
special and was met. at the
train by a band, which beaded a
parade up the street. It was a
surprise for the Grizzlies, and
was appreciated very much. They
carried with them throe hustling
newspaper men from the Denver
papers and in consequence their
trip was well taken care of.
A Fine Modern Cottage

Methodist Social Circle
Airs. Dr. Fordyce was hostess
to the Methodist Social Circle
yesterday afternoon. About fifty
ladies were present in spite of
the threatening weather. The
house was beautifully decorated
in Easter lilies, apple blossoms
and cut flowers. Aliss Edna Car
ico favored the company with a
vocal solo; Aliss Sara Alorsman,
an instrumental solo; Nellie Craig
a vocal solo. Aliss Alaude Gra
ham and Airs. T. L. Davies de
lighted all with a special musi
cal selection, ‘‘Bethoven’s Sym

usual charming manner made the
afternoon one of real pleasure to

Base Ball Notes
The Colts have all reported,
and a finer looking bunch of
players were never seen in this
John Forrester, manager, is
an old hand at the business, hav
ing played in the Western legues
at Leavenworth and Topeka.
Jack, as he is better known t<»
the base ball fans, is a man of
wide experience and certainly
knows a base ball player when he
secs one. This is what he says
about the league-. ‘‘I have a
bunch of promising young players
1 won't say what the end will be.
but keep your good eye on ns.”
And of course we expect him
to repeat what we did last year,
coine home at the close of the
season with ‘‘the coveted rug.”
A Show for the people, old and I
young, all come away with the
same verdist. “Best show we
ever saw.” Falls City, May, 3.
The Young Men’s quartet met
at the home of Miss Jennie Keitn
last night with Miss Lena Nort
dorf as accompanist.
OPENING GAME MAY 18
Boys Have Arrived And Are Out
The ball boys are out l'or
practice these days, and are fast
getting in shape for the opneing
game. Falls City will undoubted
ly be the best town in the
league in point of attendance,and
it is earnestly hoped that she can
duplicate her feat of last year
and bring home anothe pennant.
If it were possible to call the
games at 0:00 o’clock, the attend
ance would nearly double, as the
shop men and many others who
are unable to get off in thq mid
dle of the afternoon could and
would miss their supper in order
to attend. Now that we are to
have no Sunday base ball, it
scents worth trying to arrange at
least a game a week for such a
time that the laboring man can
gte a chance to see the great nat
ional game without losing time
