Keeley pitched a winning; game In the
opening whirl with Wichita, holding the
Kannani to four hits. Ho had perfect sup
port In the field and shut out Wichita
until the ninth inning. Altchlson also was
at his best and kept well scattered the
Ix hits he allowed.
For the first five Innings the Rourkes
wenf down In one-two-thrre order and only
sixteen men faced the pitcher. But In the
sixth It was a different story. Oondlng
walked, after ono out, and went to second
on Kecley'a single. Schoonover flew to Bel
den for the sncond out. Corrldon poled out
a Texas leaguer to the right field and
Oondlng scored. Corrldon going to second
on the throwln, and Keeley going to third.
Xing batted a hot grounder to the short
stop, who let It get through his hands for
a long roll out to center field, and Keeley
and Corrldon tallied. . "v
Wichita. Escapes Bhatoat.
When the ninth opened and Westerill Im
mediately knocked a long fly into Klggert's
hands, It looked like a shutout. Then, when
Middleton tried to puncture the center field
fence for three bases, It looked somewhat
different. Middleton scored when Turner
batted a little infield grounder and was
thrown out at first. All chance for Wichita
to tie the score waa nipped lit the bud when
Klggert outran another long fly, this time

One game today and a double-header
Two of OmaWa six hits were lovely
Texas leaguers, - where they couldn't be
reached with a ten-foot pole. ,
Another Kansan will arrive today.
Kneaves, a shortstop from Hutchinson, has
been purchased for the Rourkes.
With Oondlng behind the bat, there were
fewer attempts to steal second. Middleton
tried It but he couldn't beat Oondlng's
Schoonover made his initial appearanoe.
He hasn't quite his gait yet, but ho doesn't
look halt bad. And then again, he's from
Pitcher Altchlson can do more than pitch.
He knows what to do when bee-llners and
hot grounders are coming his way, and he
la also fast on his feet. . ,

"I announce that I shall not be a candi
date for re-eleotlon to the senate of the
United States. My health will not permit.
The making of this announcement la to pie
a matter of deep regret, because I feel it
will be disappointing to my frlenda and
more loyal or disinterested friends no man
ever had. I muke no attempt to oonvey to
them my heartfelt thanks for the consider

tempt would but reveal the poverty of
words at my command."

Mr. and Mrs. William Webber Cele
brate Anniversary by Receiving;
Hundreds of Friends.
MITCHELL, S. D., Aug. 23. (Speclal.)-
Fifty years of wedded life, filled with hap
piness and prosperityls the portion which
has come to Mr. and Mrs. William Webber,
who have made their home In Jerauld coun
ty since the' year 18U1, and moving to Wes-
sington Springs a year or two ago. The oc
casion of the celebration was an import
ant event In the social life of Wesslngton
Springs, and the invited list extended Into
the hundreds. The house was Inadequate
to hold - the people who were present, and
two large tents were secured and set up
on the vacant lots adjoining the Kebber
residence. The parlor tent was handsomely
decorated with gold colors, with white
to complete the harmony, and the second
tent was used for the big dinner which was
served. In the parlor tent Mr. and Mrs.
Webber received their guests at noon an
immense row of people were there ready
to extend their congratulations. With all
the relatives and friends, there were ISO
people seated at the tables In tha tent, the
guests being grouped with reference to
rlatlons and friendships. The arrange
ments required for the dinner were numer
ous and were carried out by a corps of
There were present at the celebration
three couples who were also present at the
wedding fifty years ago. When the din
ner was served, a program was presented
by the young people that took up a good
portion of the afternoon.
Mr. and Mrs. Webber were married at
Rcckton, 111., and spent most of their early
life on a farm. Mr. Webber turned his at
tention to inventions a few years after he
waa married and his name is connected
with some of the greatest agricultural in-
entlons of ' those days, and which really
started the, idea of labor-saving machinery
on the farm. At Kockton Mr. Webber de
voted his time to the manufacture of farm
machinery and on December 27, 1867, he
completed the first real two-horse reaper, on
which he secured a patent, and later man
ufactured these machines on a large scale.
They were received at first with consider
able doubt by the farmers in those days,
but a demonstration by the inventor was
sufficient to prove the merit of his har
vesting machine. Mr. Webber also invented
the angle sieve fanning mill, a patent
lever farm gate, and also the sickle section
that Is now In use on mowers. After
twelve years of manufacturing of these Im
plements, Mr. Webber had to give up on
acount of 111 health. He then moved to
Ogle county, Illinois and bought 240 acres
of land in lhiS, living there three years. In
1891 they moved to South Dakota, and have
gained a fine competence. They raised
two sons and one daughter, one of the
sons, WIlITam, and the dauzhter. belna-
present at the golden anniversary.
The worthy old couple waa presented
with many handsome presents during the
day by the close friends they have made In
the state. About twenty-five people were
present from Illinois and Iowa.
