Omaha may have four extra ball games
at home during September If arrange
ments now being mado between Pa
Rourke and the management of the To
peka ball club are. consummated. The
plan Is to transfer all the game3 Omaha
plays at Topeka for the remainder of the
season to Omaha.
The plan was brought up for discussion
while the Omaha team was In Topeka.
During the four games Omaha played at
Kawville. but 8S9 persons turned out.
The Omaha share of the gate receipts
was the guaranty for th first four days
and but ten dollars over that on the

seemed to have abandoned the team. For
this reason Omaha may get the four

August 2 -will be played In Omaha on
August IS when the Topeka club will

THE SWIFT SPECIFIC CO ATLANTA. CA.
Peaches Pour in;
City Eats Share,
With the fruit movement from T,exas,
Arkansas and Missouri the heaviest in
the history of those states, California
has Jumped Into the game and Is send
ing 100 carloads into Omaha dally, -to say
nothing of the hundreds of carloads that
are being shipped into other cities. The
result is that at this time Omaha la the
largest fruit distributing center in th
central west and not far behind Chicago.
Railroad men say that during the last
week more than 100 carloads of peaches
have been arriving dally from Texas and
Arkansas and that now Missouri Is add
ing from twenty-five to fifty cars daily
to this vast quantity.
Of course Omaha is not consuming the
225 to 250 cars of fruit that comes in
each day. but it is taking its share.
From here the fruit goes in every direc
tion, this having been made the central
distributing point. Here the cars are
re-iced and sent on, going northwest as
far a Billings, Deadwood and the Black
Hills country, north to St. Paul, Minne
apolis and even Winnipeg, and east to
Duluth, Chicago, Milwaukee, Buffalo
and New York City.
At this time ' Omaha people are eating
on an- average one carload of peaches
dally. They were never so cheap as
now,, the big, rosy cheeked fellows from
Arkansas retailing at around 31 a bushel.
They are not expected to go lower, but
will remain around this figure until the
Missouri peaches are off the market,.
This year southern Nebraska and
northern Kansas are expected to provldo
a large quantity of peaches. Through
the peach raising section of these states
the crop has been enormous and the
quality and grade is said to be about the
same as the Missouri product. These
peadhes will commence to make their ap
pearance next week.
