a awelterer, so warm the grandstand held j'pn,1,'"';. of'
more fan than the bleachers and Brother
Dave vended several barreli of his hand
made lemonade. Over 2,500 fan sat to the
finish and saw Omaha win; the third
straight game from the Houston, although
Dexter and his horde secured a lead of
three runa In tho first three Innings.
Wither-up and Sanders wore the opposing
lahmen" and It looked for two Innings as
though the elongated twlrler from Des
Moinaa waa gotr-a; to hold the Rourke family
ate, while hla teammates were clouting
Sanders. Things changed, however. In the
third Inning after Anderson had a chance
to start double play and end the Inning.
The Des Moines team werjt to pieces after
that error and before Dexter eould lasso
the wild' Colta Omaha had piled up five
hakeap In the Team.
Owner Hlgwins of the Des Moines team
at In the grandstand. He and Dexter had
talked over matters the night before and
decided upon a thorough ahakoup of the
team. Flournoy waa called back Into the
cam to play left. Bader waa put on aec
ond and, Dolan 6n first, while Dwyer was
ent ta center field. The changes were
about as radical as were forced upon tho
Omaha, team at the end of the first Inning.
Austin disputed the Judgment of the umpire-In
atrlking him out and was benched
for his energy. King waa them moved to
third. Autrey to second, Belden to right
and Bartlirf to first. Bartllff dropped a
foul tip, but atoned for It by catching the
next one In exactly aha same place. Franc
threw two low ones to Bartllff, which the
new member of the Rourke family did not
gobble up. LeBnand threw over King's
head In trying to head off a double steal
at second and waaa thus responsible for th
first run made by Des Moines In the first
lnninjr. Antrey 'also Joined the error column
by falling to atop a grounder on which he
got alia tnlt; , True, Drxtef stood In' his sun
light, but be had to be charged with an
error Juat tha- same.
How Visitor Start.
. With one out Dolan singled In the first
and went to third on Bader'a single. Bader
started to second and LeBrand threw the
ball away. One for Des Moines. In the
third Innlnc Fkiurhoy Opened with a triple
which bounded bad for Welch and went
on to thi 'Yence. Dolart made his second
hit, scoring Flournoy, went to third on
Bader'a double and home on Fitzgerald's
long fly-qut to Welch.
rThree runa hehind was the condition
which confronted the Omaha team when It
came to bat In the third Inning. Fisher
oponed with a single. - King flew out to
Anderson and Anderson booted Autrey'
gYonnUrerrndovVMi(her! atound with
a single and Autrey went to third. Belden
hit a Texas leaguer to left, which someone
should have captured, but It went aafe and
Autrey scored." Then came the grand
inlxup of the day." Buck Franck hit an
other popup back of third, which no ono
caught. Welch and Belden trotted home
and Flournoy threw the ball to second to
head off Franck. Bader muffed the ball
and Franck Kept running and scored before
the ball was fielded home.
Franck Gets Third lilt.
With one out In the next Inning Fisher
hit aafe again, stole second and came homo
on Klng'a single. ' in the fifth with one out
Belden hit for a double and came home
on Franck's double down the third base
k- line. It waa the third hit of the day for
Flourney opened the fifth with a d.iublo
and scored On Dwyer'a double. An effort
at a rally was made In the Inst Inning by
Dea Motneav but It ended with one run.

CALL FOR THECLD SETTLERS
President Vosl I rgos Those W ho Are
ot In to Join Without
rrcsident A. N. Yost of the Nebraska
Territorial Fionccrs' association says tho
coming meeting ut Mllford Is going to ba
one of the most interesting the associa
tion has ever held. The session at Lincoln
on Friday evening will be largely a busi
ness meeting, and the picnic at Milford
on the day following is to be one of a
renewal of old acquaintances and early
day experiences. Mr. Yost has this to
say to tho old settlers of Nebraska:
"In behulf of the territorial pioneers of
Nebraska I wunt to urge all the officers
and members of tho county pioneer asso
ciations to make a special effort to get
as many of their members and others to
Join the State Association of Nebraska
Pioneers. I would like also to see a pioneer
organization In every county In this stato,
nnd there is no reason why there should
not be. All It costs to organize Is an
effort, and a very small effort at that. I
would be glad to come and assist In or
ganizing an association In any county In
the state, or give any assistance In my
power. If you have picnics, I will be glad
to speak to your association and give you
all the Information in keeping up your
association that I possibly can. These or
ganizations mean more to tho coming gen
eration than to the present, and this Is
particularly true of the state association,
as tills Is an organization for the purpose
of registering aa territorial pioneers those
who came to this state or'were born in
Nebraska before March 1, 1867, and those
who came later as state pioneers, but
they all, belong to the same body, and
have the same privileges, as we want them
all on the register up to 1875; also for the
purpose of preserving historical data and

The Fourth of July afternoon population
at Krug park pushed five figures hard,
and the evening crowd was several thous

early and stayed late. Hundreds of well

extras furnishing a 2-mlnute service, went
out overcrowded with every available inch
of footboard space occupied. The garden
of the park overflowed early, and every
walk, avenue and promenade within the
enclosure was crowded with moving, Jost

waiting hour after hour, thereforo the con
slant, steady patronage was greater than
they could handle. The cafe nnd lunch par

of national and patriotic airs, and for en

popular with the park patrons were given.
