EIGHT TEAMS WILL COMPOSE BASEBALL ORGANIZATION. I MEETING HERE LAST NIGHT A Committee on Constitution Was Ap pointed Tilden , Nellgh , Stanton , " Pilger , Wisner , West Point , Scrib- ner and Norfolk In the League. At a meeting of haseball enthusi asts from northern Nebraska points held at the office of Chairman W. W. Roberts in this city last night , it was determined to form an eight-team league consisting of clubs from Stanton - ton , Pilger , Wisner , West Point , Scrib- ner , Tilden , Nellgh and Norfolk , and to call the organization , "The Elkhorn Valley Baseball League. " A committee of four , composed of C. A Smith of Tilden , Al Pont of Stanton , J. W. Stewart of Wisner , and John Neligh of West Point was ap pointed to draft a constitution and to meeti n the office of Mr. Pont at Stanton - ton at 3 o'clock on the afternoon of March 5 for the puipose of its adop tion. The committee was Instructed to secure a copy of the by-laws of the Western league. Enthusiastic fans from Wisner and West Point were here In full foice , all heartily in favor of the formation of the proposed league. It was decided at the meeting to extend an invitation to Nellgh to join the aggregation. It will , of course , depend now unon each individual town ns to whether or not the single teams shall be 01- pani/.ed but the idea seemed to pre vail at the meeting that , with the proper effort In each place and with the right support from the business men of each town , the organization will be possible without any ( Joubt. It will bo seen from the schedule that the teams which are now consid ered are from towns on the main line of the Chicago fc Northwestern rail way and that , therefore , the name "Elkhorn Valley league" is literally true.

The Foster bill to scale all state rates 10 per cent is being hind fought by the lobby , audit Is charged by members that the nil- loads are back of the effort to create a commission.

GROUND UP IN WASH-MACHINE Unique and Strangely Tragic Fate Which Befell the Purring Pet of a Little 5-Year-Old Girl at West Point. Was Washed Out Like 3 Towel. West Point , Neb. , Feb. 18 Bathed to deatli in the lamlly washing ma chine was the unique and strangely tiagic fate which befell a little white kitten at the hands of its devoted mlb- tiess , 3-year old Lena Casey. The kitten had been o'ut in the snowdrifts and returned indoors with a quaitet of slightly soiled little feet. Slezing her pet in her arms , Lena ca ressingly informed the creature that it must have a bath straightway and that the family washing machine would be used as the mobt effectual means of cleanliness. "You're foots are very black , Kitty , " she said to her affectionate playmate and best friend in the world "And I think they ought to De washed off Now you must be a good kitten and get into the wash-machine that's jour bath tub , Kitty without a wlum per. " Accordingly the purring pet was lifted gently into the inner recesses of the Monday morning machinery of the household , and locked llgbtl > in , after it had been given a tender fare well stroke from the diminuthe , toft white hand of the kitten laundress Then the wheels began to grind and shortly after the lid was opened Dashing her fingers down to clutch her kitten clean , little Lena was horror ror stricken to find its form limp and lifeless and Its eyes shut tightly. She sobbed later as though her little heart would break , when she found that the pufesy was really dead. The bathed- to-death pet was buried in the back yard. The little girl is a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Casey. Mr Casey is salesman In a general merchandise store here. NOTABLE WEDDING AT VERDIGRE Fred W. Dlprick and Miss Rosa J.

"Before we can sympathize with others , we miiht have buffered our selves. " No one can defccribe to you the suffering attending a nattack of the grip , unless you ha\e had the ac tual experience. There is probably no disease that causes to much phys ical and mental agony , or which to successfullly defies medical aid. All danger from the grip , however , may ho avoided by the prompt ute of Chamberlain's Cough remedy. Among thotens , of thousands who have used this remedy , not one case has ever been reported that has resulted In pneumonia or that has not recovered. Tor sale by oLonard the druggist.

Testimony was ghcn by Slate Tron sin or Peter Mottonson , who was a member of the slate boaid of public lands ami buildings that expended the $ inonoo appropilatlon ; Foiinor Allot nov Cionotal Pi out , Foiinor Socrolmv of State 0V Mmsh , and Slate Aicltl tcct James TMor , jr These gentlemen gave their reasons for expending the money at Norfolk In building tlnoo cottages and an ad ministration building. The conditions after the lire were explained and the situation as U then confiontcd the state boaid was reviewod. v It appeared fiom the testimony , ac cording to the statement of ono meni- Ijoi of the committee , that the state board expended the money the legisla ture appiopriatod In a manner voiy cieditable to the stale They used some of the material In the old build ing for the now stritclutoH nnd acted according to their host judgment In planning the now buildings. The mem bers examined adhoiod to the conten tion that they had oboved the law and the whole case seemed to resolve It self into Iho qitoslion whether Ihoy had a right lo cxeroiso the latllude they did , and whether or not the work is repairing or lobuilding In the sense used In the statute. State Architect Tjlor was piosent to give information to the committee as to what had been done at Norfolk Ho explained that while the buildings present a fine appearance , the state was enabled to secure this at a reason able figure. Some of the rooms are finished In a wood resembling mahog any. As a matter of fact , the wood is an ordinary kind stained. Some imitation marble or onyx In the admin istration building cieates an excellent Impression upon the visitor , but Is not excessively expensive. Mr. Tyler explained the system of constinctlon followed He was one of the party of state officers who visited Illinois Institutions to secure ideas for the new buildings Ho said the cottage system was evidently the best one to follow It ga\e more room than could ha\e been secured by building up the portion of the binned building thai would have been available and the patients can receive better trealinent. The experts In insanity almost unani mously recommend the cottage sys tem. BLANCHE COPPER MINE. The Mineral Showing at a Depth of 140 Feet Is Very Encouraging. Norfolk stockholders In the Blanche Copper Mining company of which H E Owen of this city Is president , will be pleased to know that progress Is being made in the work of developing the property , and learn of the good showing in deposits thai are being made. The following from the Her ald of Grand Encampment , Wyoming , of February 10 , shows the results of the mining operations up to thai date : "The two-compartment shaft on the property of the Blanche Copper min ing company has a very encouraging showing of mineral at Its present depth of 140 feet At a depth of about 120 feet the formation began to change and the last fifteen feet of work has been in a bard formation which Is now badly broken up Seams of oxidised material , talc and quartz cross the bhaft at all angles , and along the seams are la > ers of a/urlte copper while considerable copper glance is pre ent here and there. "The shaft Is not/In vein material at present , but the presence of copper and the broken condition of the ground indicate thai It Is only a mal ter of pinking or crosscuttlng to bring the workings into oro.

BASEBALL MEETING HERE TONIGHT Northern Nebraska Enthusiasts Will Try to Organize. North Nebraska baseball enthusi asts will moot in Norfolk again to night for the purpose of discussing the possibilities of a league In this section of the country The meeting will be held at the office of W W Roberts at 8 o'clock and all Norfolk fans are urgently requested to attend the meeting Secretary Pont of Stun- ton says that there will he a latge delegation present from other towns. Telephone messages this morning dis closed the fact that a number of fans have started for Norfolk and will been on hand. Concerning the prospects of the league , the West Point Republican says- Since that time , West Point has re ceived an Invitation to be present at the meeting , and In all probability , such well-known enthusiasts as Harry Howarth , Will McDonald , Will Nellgh and Frank Sharrar will be in attend ance. The Republican believes the project to he a feasible one It believes , fur ther , that this town will support good league ball to a very reasonable ex tent. Working under stringent rules and with league umpires , there will bo little chance for rowdvlsm and dir ty ball playing. An organisation made up of clubs from Crc-ighton , Wayne , Norfolk , Nellgh , Madison , Stanton , Wlsnor and West Point would bo fair ly compact and might be able to weather the financial gale. It goes without fjaylng that , in order to do this , it will bo necessary to place the salary limit at the minimum and to gi\o every encouragement to amateur players. Too much professionalism will kill the sport and local players should ho given the preference and utill/ed wherever possible. The Re publican would like to toe a move of this kind succeed and it heartily pulls its thumbs for the success of the pro ject. ject.A A number of other papers suggest ideas. At Plalnvlew the thought Is expressed that a high school league might bo more inexpensively operated and that interest would not lag , as long as the boys were all amateurs.
