been in the citv during the oast few
days report that it will be necessary
, to nave rain at least by tne end ot tne
, week in order to have even a half a
crop of corn One newspaper, in giv-
ing the official rain fall figures for
i that community up to Julyl. as com
, pared with other years, finds that
there has been less rain this year by
almost an inch than there was in tne
dry season of 1S94 Of coarse, we
have had rains and at times they were
almost invaluable, and as a result a
fair crop of wheat has been harvested.
Bar the outlook far corn is certainly
ot encouraging right now.

Gottfried Ingold died very suddenly
at his home in the east part of the
city earlv Saturday morning. He
arose in the morning, apparently
well, and went out to a tent in the
yard, where he was found some time
later by members of the family and
taken to the house, where he. died
soon after. Apparently death was
caused by heart failure. He had been
a resident of this city far about twen
ty years. He is survived by a wife
and nine children, six sons and three

Eight straight without a miss was
the record of the Columbus team for
eight days preceding the tumble of
last Sunday. As a result, the team
rose from seventh place to fourth and
remained in the first division for one
day. But SuSWay the tide turned
again and the game was lost to Se
ward, and Monday and Tuesday they
lost to York at York. In yesterday's
game the score was close with Col
umbus in the lead until the last half
of the last inning, when with two
men out. and one an base a home run
was knocked which reversed the score
and took the game. The team will
be watched with more concern and in
terest than ever from now on"to the
end of the season on account of the
fact that there are but five mare
weeks of the season. There is still
time for Coimbus to stand out and
make a good showing if they have
good luck. One game has been for
feited during the week, when last
Friday. Umpire Edwards threw the
game between York and Fremont to
York, on account of the insubordina
tion of Manager Bennett, which has
become chronic as is admitted even
by the Fremont Tribune. Both Fre
mont and Superior are making hard
fights to maintain the supremacy,
first he and then the other heading
the list by a narrow margin. Just
now, Superior is in the lead, but not
so much so. but Fremont can get it
back again in a couple of days with
the conditions right. Columbus will
be back home again Sunday for a ser
ies of twelve more games three
each with York. Superior. Kearney
and Grand Island. The remainder of
this week will be spent at Kearney.
