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

tiagic fate which befell a little white
kitten at the hands of its devoted mlb-

The kitten had been o'ut in the

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 , "

and best friend in the world "And

Now you must be a good kitten and

Accordingly the purring pet was

the suffering attending a nattack of

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.
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

not excessively expensive. Mr. Tyler
explained the system of constinctlon

of state officers who visited Illinois
Institutions to secure ideas for the

system was evidently the best one to
follow It ga\e more room than could
ha\e been secured by building up the

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-

delegation present from other towns.
Telephone messages this morning dis

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
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

A number of other papers suggest
ideas. At Plalnvlew the thought Is

Sweet Prune Plum.
September 1 , 1903 , three bushels of
plums were picked from one five-year-
old tree in D. D. Hammond's orchard
of Sweet Prune plums. The tree com
menced to bear two years after plantIng -
Ing and Is bearing every year. It is
the only Prune plum that has been a
success with mo and I have tried
many kinds. It stood the dry years ,
1893 and 1891 , and the hard winter of
1899 and bore fruit the following sea
son. It Is a grand success for North
eastern Nebraska. It is a dark purple
in color , large sl/e , skin can be easily
removed and can be pitted like a
free stone peach. The\ are excellent
for canning and ptesorves and are so
sweet that iho\ requite very little
sugar. I sold this plum at $2 50 to
$3.00 a bushel the past season when
other vailetles of fcour plums were
selling for 75 cents to $1 Oo a bushel.
It has taken flist premium at several
falls , a premium at the Lincoln state
fair , and limbs and branches loaded
with plums , shipped to the Pan-Amer
ican exposition at Buffalo , New York ,
wore shown in the Nobrasak fruit ex
hibit that took ono of the gold medals.
I also recehod an honoiablo mention
diploma on this plum from the Pan-
American exposition. Wo believe this
pltun has more good qualities , and is
the best plum in existence for this
whole northwestern country. If you
plant some of these trees yon will bo
well paid.
Wo have a choice fine lot of five to
six feet trees to sell for the spring
of 1)05. ! ) These trees wore grown from
grafts cut off thc o hearing treps that
bore these plnms , and they will bear
fruit at two or three years old if
planted and are snro to bo genuine.
If you want some of these trees send
your order early and got the host plum
