parties ever given in Columbus was
the party given by the Misses Lottie

A. Drake can bowl some.
W. A. Way played in exceptionally
hard luck,drawing fourteen splits in the
match game last Thursday night.
The young "fellers" had the "old' una'
beaten to a turn until the last game
when, by a series of splits and errors
they lost their nerve.
Harry A. Graves is assistant engineer
at the bowling alley, having accepted a
position with Geo. Hagel, commencing
his work today.
P. J. Hurt is fond of oysters, more es
pecially when they are won in a bowl

'old men" vros.
The Hagel allej s witnessed a most in
teresting match game last Thursday
night between the "olds" and the
'youngs." It was a hot contest from
the beginning and it looked as if young
blo:d would tell until Drake began his
series of strikes in the finish. In fact
the Greek youths of ancient times could
not have showed iojjetter form than did
Hart, Way, McEver, Drake and Snyder.
And the youthful features of Gregorins,
Graves, Becher. Hurzeler and Wadhams
bore the wrinkles of age befcue the
donghty "old men" got through with
them. These wrinkles were all smooth
ed out however, when the players joined
at the banquet table at the Vienna and
got outside of several quarts of Corbett's
extra selects, for which the "youngs"
paid hs a penalty for their weak arms.
Witnesses of the game and banquet
declare tbat Pat Hart was the happiest
man ever seen in Columbus. The score
was as follows:
Gregorius 162 175 157499
Graves 145 164 170479
Becher 157 143 146-446

Kearney 18 -Colombo 0.
The Kearney Military Academy foot
ball eleven played the Columbus high
school eleven at Columbus Saturday
and won a victory by a score of IS to
The visitors made all their scores in
the first half of the game, after which
they were powerless to even have a
glimpse of the coveted goal.
Columbus kicked off when Kearney
secured the ball and lost it bnt twice
during the first half and scored three
touch-downs, and kicked goal three
times netting them 18 points.
At the beginning Gray of Columbus
was forced from the field by being
injured. He ssffered a broken
ankle. This greatly weakened
onr line-up and during the re
mainder of the first half Kearney
seemed to walk through onr boys at
The second half did not prove that
way and tha game continued to the
end one of the prettiest contests ever
witnessed on a foot ball field. Co
lumbus went in to score, and from
the beginning had Kearney on their
staff until they brought the ball
within six inches of a touch-down.
Here Kearney strengthened and with
stood center rnsnes. one after another
for three downs when onr boys comld
not gain an inch. This was the
nearest onr boys came to scoring.
After losing the ball to Kearney the
visitors gained a lew yards by center
rushes; and after being tightly crowd
ed in order to retain the ball before
the last down, punted for a short gain
and there th work finished with bnt
small result for either ide.
Though Columbus lost it waa a
nervy stand by a nervy bunch ; and
had the local displayed their training
qualities in the first half a they did
in the last the game woald hare ter
minated with a score much different.

Republican Candidates ?
The men to whom Platte county taxpayers, of all parties must look to break the "court house
ring" and to apply the rules of law and economy to the transactions of the county's business.
Try them one term If they don't live up to their pledges turn them out. Don,t be de
ceived by the eleventh hour statements of democratic candidates who have not
dared publicly to deny the statements made by the Journal from the official
records. "A change in the court house and lower taxes" is the watchword.
J. Dayton Stares, Republican Candidate for County Judge.
FROX HIS LETTER OF ACCEPTANCE:
"I regard it an injustice to litigants and an abuse of official prerogative, as well as a corrupting political prac
tice to give the publication of all legal notices and official proceedings to some party paper as a compensation
for political services, regardless of the wishes of interested parties or value to the public."

Republican candidate for sheriff. Every
body knows the popular auctioneer from
Creeton. As sheriff of Platte county he
will be satisfied with legal mileage. The
Madison Star-Mail, a democratic paper,
says of him: "If he were known in
Platte county as he is in Madison, that
800 democratic majority would look like
30 cents."' Creston, where he has lived
for 18 years, will give him a solid vote.

outcome of the coming election.
New Platte county has been governed
by the democratic party ever since I

years ago. and I believe if a majority

about twenty acres of well prepared soil

earnest labor, are worry ing about a place
