several cars were being slowly shoved

Much interest is being manifested
in the various exhibits representing
the dairy industry at the state fair.
About 20,000 hand separators are in
use in this state at this time and all
of the principal hand separator man
ufacturers have secured space in the
dairy building and will have their
various makes of machines on exhib
ition, and competent men to explain
the desirable and useful qualities.
At the St. Louie exposition it is a
fad for states making an exhibit of
dairy products to attract attention by
life size models in butter placed in the
show window ocenpied by such state.
In order to keep up with the times in
this direction the Beatrice Creamery
Company of Lincoln have arranged,
at an expense of several hundred dol
lars, to have one of thft most expert
artists employed at the St.-Louis Ex
position come to Lincoln and model in
butter a life size exhibit to be placed
in the refrigerator in the dairy build
ing on the state fair grounds, and in
order to accomodate this exhibit and
show it to the best possible advantage,
the state fair management have plan
ned to enlarge the window in the front
of the refrigerator to fixS feet, with
plate glass front.
The management of the state fair to
be held in Lincoln, August 29 to Sep

aad interesting attraction.

The first round in the Lindsay case
of Fitzsimmons vs Brod boll was pulled
off in county court last Friday and
resulted in first blood for Fitzsim
mons. The court fined Mr. Brod boll
-1.00 and costs for "menacing and
threatening assault" upon E. C. Fitz
simmons. The costs amount to some
50. Mr. Brod boll has filed an appeal
to district court.
The alleged circumstances, which
it would seem have been proved to
the satisfaction of the conrt, are that
on the lf.th of July E. A. Brodboll
met E. C. Fitzsimmons on the streets
of Lindsay and pointed the small end
of a gun at him, threatening to shoot
him. Mr. Brodboll is the Lindsay
banker who has been active in the
case of the charges which were made
against Drs. Munk and Walker of
Newman Grove, and which were not
proved. His son. Paul Brodboll, is
now under bond to appear at Spald
ing on the 2'Jth of this month to an
swer a charge of shooting ont window
lights in the school honse where be
has been teaching, and of starting a
prairie fire which caused great loss of
. In the case which was decided Fri
day afternoon in county conrt, Mr.
Brodboll asked the court if he had any
other charges against him to bring
them on all at the same time so that
they could all be settled at once.
Howevor. the court was unable to
find anything else on his docket, so
the Fitzsimmons case was tried and
decided as stated.

The Columbus baseball team deci
sively defeated the Crestoa bunch San
day afternoon on the home grounds.
The score was 8 to 0. The Colnabms
battery was Dolaa and Dodders, and
for Creston Morrison and Sharrar.
The feature of the game was Dolan's
pitching. He struck ont fifteen men,
and in the first three innings did not
left a man reach first base. His support
was good, and the game was never in
doabt. For the visitors, Morrison
pitched a good game, bat the home
boys were very handy with the stick
and were lucky once or twice in gett
ing hits at just the Tight time. Cres
ton got a man on third twice in the
game, but that was their limit. Jones
was a star batter for the Columbus
team and Janded on the ball in a very
reckless fashion. The diamond was
in good shape and a fair crowd at
tended. Jones. Gutzmer and Taylor
are oredited with stolen bases. Next
Sunday one of the hard games of the
seasonwilI be played With the Schuy
ler team. The Scbayler crowd are
said to be a pretty rapid set, and there
will be a game worth going miles to
see. The home team is showing up
in fine shape, and they are putting up
a game that is worthy of support by
all the local fans. The price charged
is tho good old-fashioned quarter.
The Columbus team took a fall out
of the "Sioux Indians, Monday after
noon, in a score of 7 to 3. The In
dians are repreeented to come from
Spokane, Wash., and to be on their
way to the St. Lonis exposition.
They have a strong team and had
won nine straight games before they
Lohr and Jones were tho Columbus
battery. In the evening the red men
got back at the local boys in a species
of horse play known as baseball by
arc-lights. They have a number of
electric lights around the diamond
which is abont ten feet less on each
side than the regular diamond. The
oatfielders all play np in the diamond,
and they use a dead ball somewhat
larger than the league ball and softer.
At this game the noble redskins
rubbed it into the palefaces in the
gross sum of 17 to 8. It was lots of
fun. but did not bear any striking re
semblance to the great national game.
In the game next Sunday, and all
others hereafter, there will be an
officer present on the grounds to keep
everything in order and insure con

which will be unexceptionable.
