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.

Base Ball Notes The Colts have all reported, and a finer looking bunch of players were never seen in this city. 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 Practicing 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 and wages. Horse Ran Away While on his way from Hum boldt yesterday, Mr. Goddard, of the music store of this city was driving with his auto, when he met Mr. Robahr, who was driving a horse to a cart. The horse be came frightened at the machine, threw the driver out and broke things up in general.
