Proves a Fiasco.
The boxing exhibition at the Lloyd
last evoning between Smith of Sidney
andLange of Omaha proved a fiasco, due
to tho fact that the night before Smith,
while undor the influence of liquor,
went out joy riding, fell from the car
and Injured his hand and arm so bndly
that when he appeared in tho ring
he was unable to do much sparring. He
did not divulge his condition to the
promotors of the event until just before
entering the ring, and thoy, the prom
otors, announced that those of tho
audience who were not satisfied, would
have their admission fee refunded. A
few took advantage of this offer. The
promoters had hoped to give the pat
rons an evening of .clean sport, and
that the affair ended as it did was not
their fault. Had Smith been in con
dition it is probable that he would have
clearly outclassed Lange.

M. E. Crosby, Secretary.
Eight hundred or a thousand people
assembled at the foot ball grounds
yesterday afternoon to see what had
been heralded as "tho" game of the
liason, tho Cheyenne warriors being
the opposing team. And it was "tho''
gamo, but only as it related to the
ecorc made by tho local eleven, the
vi si tots securing nine points while the
North Platte boys run up 110. As the
score Indicates, the game was not of
particular Interest, it was so "easy"
as to almost make it fa c ca). When
tho teams assembled on the Held the
visitors looked like sanitarium patients
as compared with heavy North Plotters,
but there was a chance that what tho
Choyennese lacked in "beof" might
be mado up in team work and srrmt
ing. This hope, however, was dissi
pated aftor the first two minutes of
play, during which the locals mado a
touch down and kicked goal. The only
gains made by tho visitors and they
were fewwore made by forward
passes, and the ficotness of foot of
one or two players. It was by this
method that thoy scored a goal kick,
tho other two points boing secured by
means of a "safety."
In general playing there was no com
parison in the work of the two teams,
tho locals outclassing tho visitors nt
evory point. Every North Platte player
showed up strong, and it is to bo re
gretted that the last game of the sea
son was with so weak a team.
The North Platto team ended tho
season without a defeat, nnd this too
after having played with all tho strong
teams of western Nebraska, thestrong
i a t an in Colorado and the supposed
champions of Wycminp.
Apparently the only high school team
in the state that might prove interest
ing for North P'atto would bo Omaha,
and efforts have been made to secure a
gamo with that team, but so far the
the efforts havo been futile.
