BASK BALL SEASON ENDS IN NOHTIf 1'LATTE. m Tho base ball Hoason In North Platte closed Sunday with the game wltli Sid ney. Tho condition or the treasury necessitated this movo; the manage ment wisely concluding to closo the season and bo In position to pay all bills, rather than to koep up the t?am until Sei)teinbr lirst nnti nwmnre oi- llgatlnns that would be hard t meet, and could not be mot wlthoutsoliciting funds from business men and xrtners mid this would bo like pulling tdoih. The team was to havo lm tliffl wewt on a western trip, and these garnM to- ether with the two ecnwuisu tor ontembor 1st and 2d with the Lincoln Cleaners .and Dyors wore the unly onefl in sight, so tho local fans have little to lose. Tha North Platte team under the management of Jake Qettmnn had a very successful season. Twenty-four gninos were played, eighteen Were won, nve lost and one a tie giving the team a norcentago of about .825, which Is sn exceptionally high stand inr. and easily awarding to Norm Platte the pennant for western Ne. brnka and niacins the team at or noar the head of the amateur teams of the state. 1 while North Platte Had a winning team, tho financial support glvon at tho gamos was not such as .it should havo boon, and tins is particularity truo of tho week day gamos. A a rule tho Sunday game were well patronized. One difficulty this soason was the groat distanco visiting teams had to travol, and tho oxponso of getting thorn here. This necessarily made in roads on the treasury. Whono teams travel hsro from Choyonno, Scotts Muffs, Sidney or Lincoln, base ball becomes an cxpenslvo luxury. ::o:j Miss Maud Bryant, of Council Bluffs, loft Friday aftornoon after a vis t 'with Mr. and Mrs. Milium Hosier.
