Miles : put this detective in charge
of his ranch it1 Grant precinct

thousand acres and employs a
large number of men. 'rhe

Ball ' Games . \
Last Tuesday afternoon at two
o'clock the Falls City Colts played -
ed the Highland team a very exciting -
citing game of base ball , the score
being 1 to 0 in fa\'orof Highland.
The game was good from start
to finish and our boys deserve
much credit although they lost
the game. 1"horn berg , who
held first , played good ball and
made a three base hit. . jgood
crowd was out and all enjoyed
the game. Highland is out mak-
ing , l tour through this end of
the state.
The Falls City colts played a
game of base ball at Stella on
Wednesday. Time score was 6 to
2 in favor of Stella 'l"he game
.

ed good bal1. Clatence Heck had
the misfortune to havc his ankle
sprained during the seventh in-
ning and this caused our boys to
finish the game with only eight
men. The returned game was
played here yesterday y evening
but we go to press too early to
give an account of it.
lIeacocks Elevator Burns
Last Wednesday morning about
four o'clock our citizens were
awakened by the ringing of the
fire bell , and was soon learned
that P. S. Heacock's elevator was
on fire. They hurried to the
place and everything was done
to keep the buildings near from
burning as the flames had gain-

eel such headway that it , was impossible -
possible to save the elevator or ,
get any timing out of it , ag thc \ .

building and grain were very dry ( .
and in a short time after the lire
was discovered ; the whole struc-
ture wa burned Clown. How it
originated , is a ystC.1y : to every n ;
one tiS there was no fire ill the : ti
elevator all day 'l'ucsday , The f- .
fire had such a start that noth-
jug was learned as to what part
of the building the fire started '

'I"he 1 Heacock elevator was
well furnished throughout and 7
there were several thdusand
bushels of grain in it.Ye un-
dcrstand there were $4,000 insur-
ance on the building , and $2,000
on the grain. Time loss will be
somewhere in the neighborhood
of $11,000 ' . . . .4 ,
Commencement r
'l"he Fa11s City school has closed x
for the summer vacation. tl"hurs-
day , \ay ] 25 was the last day and I
II-
markefl the closing of perhaps ,
the most successful year's work
in the history of the school. The
opera house was crowded with
people who were much interested
in this great public work Time
qeh1ing was beautifully decorated -
ed in the class colors being purple
and white. Time stage was bank-
ed with potted plants , cut flowers
and palms
'l'he instrumenal music as well
as the vocal was well rendered.
The vocation was pronounced
by l eY. Griffin The class history -
tory by Kate Maddox was good.
The class poem by : Anna < 14'rehsc ;
the essays by Lena and Ruth
Aiken showed much study. The
oration by Frank Boose and . l class
prophecy by Vesta Lively were
very interest'ing. A rose drill by
Miss Gag-nons pupils was fine and
much credit is given Miss Gag-
11on. James Coupe chose for his
oration " , ] hc Graduate Problem
which was good and was we'll de-
livered.
The class play "Jede(1 ah Jud-
ldns , J. P. " was good and the
members of the class are to be
congratulated upon this grand
success.
We have heard several who
were competent to judge on such ,
remark that it was one of the
most entertaining and best ren-
dered programs ever given by a
grad uating class from our schools
'l'he pupils , the teachers , pat-
ron and audience were alike dc-
lighted. Our schools have 'made
an enviable record this year , and
we are proud of the work that is
being donc.
