WHAT'S THE MATTER.
Notwithstanding the fact thai
ever ) ' indication suggests tlu
prosperous condition of our pee
pie , we are enduring a period ol
great and unaccountable business
inactivity. Crops neverwere more ,
promising , the batiks are full ol
money , live stock commands n
fair price , in fact every commer
cial condition prompts the ques
tion , what's the matter ? Maj
we not find the answer at homo ?
The surrounding towns are offer
ing every inducement to secure
the trade which naturally belong ?
to us ; what are we doing to re
tain i ( ? It is an undeniable facl
that our stores are superior to anj
competition in southeastern Ne
braska Nobody can deny thai
Falls City merchants demand ant
receive a less percentage of prolll
on merchandise than any othei
city in this section. A compari
son of the advertisements of oui
merchants with the announce
incut made by the merchants ir
surrounding cities demonstrate
that wo undersell all competion
While this condition is one of tlu
trade induccrs , standing alone i
is insufficient.The people dematu
amusement. Auburn tries t <
make every Saturday a holidai
for the farming public. A bane
concert is given on the streets a
the expense of the merchants
The outside public is made wel
come - to feel at home. Tin
best investment Kails City cai
make is to employ the band t
play on the streets every Satur
day. A Saturday afternoon batv
concert will bring many peopl
. , to Falls City who would other
I1 i wise go to some other city. 5c
the buying public in the habit o
trading here. To create tha
habit requires work. You can
not relieve the present dullnes
by knocking , you must do some
thing.Ye are neglecting on
opportunities. That's what' '
Mr. Pollard was honored by th
presence of Journal crowd ; i
the meeting last Saturday. Thi
is the first time the gang has a
tended a republican gatherin
for two years.
The Tribune is not in tl
newspaper business for its healtl
It is a business proposition wit
Us. As a business institution v
are asking nobody to regard it :
a charitable institution. Win
we go to a merchant for his ai
vertising , we go prepared
show that we have the large
circulation in Richardson count
If that merchant does not wa ;
advertising space , it is a matt
of choice with him. That's li
business. We have always ma <
it a rule and intend to continue
obedience thereto , not to go to ;
advertiser and whine because i
has chosen to advertise in oth
papers. One of the advertise
of this town has been bored in
taking space in the Falls Ci
Journal this week by a meml
of the grafter gang following h
around and saying , "you ai
treating "s fair. " The Tribu
doesn't want business in this w ;
"We can give you more public

We stand ready to prove tl
assertion. If as a business pr <
osition our paper appeals to y <

you with childish complaints
get your business. We are i
built that way.
The county authorities have
permitted the Hiawatha people
to place benches in the court
house square , where the farmers'
wives and children may sit and
rest in the shade of the trees.
Wouldn't it be a good idea to do
the same thing in Falls City ?
The tired mothers who drive a
long distance to trade with our
merchants , would doubtless an
ticipate a trip to Palls City with
more pleasure if they knew that
some provision had been made for
their comfort. Put the band on
the street , furnish a resting
place for the ladies and their
little ones where they may sit
and listen to the music , and see
what Saturday afternoon in
Falls City will look like in thirty
days from now. Don't knock
