It is related that at a picnic icld last week , a number of , the girls sneaked off and went s.vim- ning. Some of the boys were carching for a fishing place , and he mermaids hearing their approach preach hurried out of the water irnl made 'for the brush. One of he frightened swimmers , who bought herself well concealed aid to a companion , "I have a landy hide. " A boy happened ilong at this time and gazing ritically at a leg sticking through he vines said ; "It looks good to Resisted Arrest.

The Falls City Ball Players. In speaking of a ball game played recently between Hastings ind Kearney teams , The Hast- ngs Tribune says ; Harry Foehlinger , the fleet : ooted short stop , is a Falls City 3oy who is an experienced player. Third base is held down in ye olden style by Claire Foster who mils from Falls City. Gus Ruegge , pitcher , and Thomas Poteet , catcher , are two more Falls City boys who have won the confidence of the ocal fans. Small Boy Hurt. t Mrs. O'Mara , a widow lady liv- ng seven miles north of the city came to town Wednesday accom panied by her seven-year old son to see the street fair. During : he afternoon the boy strayed away from his mother and climb ed onto the high fence surround ing the count } ' jail in order that he might see the loop the loop. He lost his balance and fell into an open cellar way , sustaining numerous and severe bruises. His injuries were dressed , after which the little fellow was taken to his home. Young Men Butted In. Miss Elizabeth and Misses Elta and Clara Boose entertained the members of the Young Ladies Kensington club of the Presby terian church on last Friday evening. The members of the club came with their kensington bags well filled with fancy work and all were busily engaged when two young men appeared on the scene. They too , had Kensington bags and fancy work. These credentials however were not recognized by the society and the male intruders were only allowed to remain and ply the needle and crochet hook , after each had paid a special license fee of one dollar. While all were present and busy with the work in hand , a mail carrier called at at the house and left a sealed proposal of marriage to each maiden lady present. The mem bers of the club , however , had reserved the right to reject any and all bids and the same was promptly done although the mat ter furnished much amusement for all. The evening was spent in a very pleasent mamier. Re freshments were served. Frank Todd came down from Humboldt Wednesday to attend the street fair. The Street Fair. The street fair has proven a great success for the Parker Amusement Co. The aggrega tion arrived in the city on time and pitched its tents along Stone street and the ad jacentsidc streets. Without exception , the shows are good and those who patro nized them have gotten value received. The free attractions have been conspicuous by their absence ami the farmer who lias come town to see the sights has found himself in the position of a man who is invited to a party and-is then asked to pa } for the refreshments. The streets have persented a gala appearance and the music of the band and the and the merry-go-round organ cry of the spicier have given the necessary atmosphere to the street fair. But the carnival was not what the people expected. They were led to believe that there would be free attractions and that a price would not be put upon everything in the way of amusement. The street lair will not prove a paying proposition from a business standpoint. Entertainment has been afforded to those who cared to pay for it. It is only from a business point of view that the street fair has been unsuccessful for the company has given clean entertainments and all connected with it have conducted themselves in a proper manner. One can hardly blame them for getting the best of the bargain when they are able to do so. NOTUS. ' . The band is not the best in the world , but , it is above the average travelling organization of this kind. kind.The The merry-go-round organ has attracted considerable attention. It is a wonderful piece of mech anism. It is clever mechanical device in fact it is more interest ing from a mechanical than from a musical standpoint. The necessary apparatus for a high dive had been installed in front of Wahl's store , but Tues day a passing wagon ran into a guy rope and the damage was sufficient to put that apparatus out of commission. A schntc for the loop-the-gap act was then erected and a man mounted on a bicycle has performed this thrill ing feat every day to the delight of the assembled multitudes. A Falls City wan who ought to know , says that the Katzenjam- mer castle idea was originated by some poor devil , "in the cold gray dawn of the morning after. " Those ice cream sandwiches are doubtless very good , but the person eating one appears about as awkward as a man eating green corn from the cob. The trip to the Alps was very entertaining. Mechanical in genuity assisted by a healthy imagination enabled the beholder to duly appreciate the spectacle. The statue turning to life is an old illustion but never fails to en tertain and mystify. A young man and woman from Dawson were riding on the Ferris wheel Tuesday night. "Would't it be nice , " said the young man as they reached the top of the wheel , "if wecould ride this way through life together ? " He fol lowed the question with a more direct proposal , but just then the wheel stopped and the young lady , taking it as a bad sign , turned down his propo'sition. On last Thursday County Judge Wilhite performed the ceremony uniting in marriage Samuel Knowles and Sadie G. Wing.both of Mound City , Mo. Congressman Pollard Married. lion. E. M. Pollard , the newly elected congressman from the first district and Gertrude Wat- tcrman were married at the home of the bride's parents in Omaha on Tuesday evening. The ro mance which led to the marriage begun in Lincoln some time ago and while in the midst of the recent congressional campaign , Mr. Pollard was also making plans for the important step that has just been taken. The con gressman-elect and h i s bride have left for a trip to the Pacific coast. No Law Suit. Under the above caption the last issue of the.Journal related an alleged attempt on the part of a local lawyer to involve the city in a law suit with the Jesse James show. Of course the ac count was a baseless falsehood. The proprietor of the show did seek advice ol a lawyer with reference to his rights in the matter and was told that he could sue out a mandamus to compel the mayor to sign the the show license , but in as much as the application would have to be time enough to get the writ signed as no judge of that court was in the city. Judge Wilhite says that the state ment of the Journal to the effect that he was asked to issue an in junction is not correct , as no such request was made by any one. If the legal department of that paper would stop and think for a moment he would know that no lawyer would ask for an injunction in the case \vhere the thing required is com pel action and not to restrain action. We might add further that if the Journal is correct is saying that industry tends to in crease a lawyers , business , that it would not be a bad idea for its legal department to get busy. Warm Time at Council Meeting. In response to an invitation from the mayor all of the clergy men of the city together with a number of our msot representative - ative citizens met with the coun cil Monday evening to remon- state over the gambling and other illegal tilings now taking place in this city. The mayor was in consultation with Francis Martin on the steps of the German church immediate- before the session , and from what we learn was loaded for bear when the show commenced. We have been unable to get the the exact facts but one the part icipants said "the mayor spent most of his time in lauding him self and the rest of the time in abusing us and The Tribune. 1 told our people what we might -expect and had the satisfaction of saying I told you so after the adjournment. " It is to be re gretted that the present condi- exists , but The Tribuntcan say with the preacher , "we told yon so. " Child Injured. On last Thursday the inlant son of Chas. Ileineman stepped on a nail the point of which en tirely pierced the little fellows foot. Dr. Burchard was called to dress the injury , which proved I to be exceedingly painful' and 'caused ' the unfortunate little fel low much distress. The wound is healing perfectly. Joe Morris , Hugh Leatherman , Lou Beard and Herb Borland were among the Humboldt people wlu came down Wednesday to visi the fair. Miss Emma Frank of Quincy 111. was z guest at the Home o J. C. Tanner this week. Notice. The Richardson county teach ers' institute will be held in Falls ity , August 7-12th inclusive. It seems that the enrollment will reach 175. We are anxious to se- cuse boarding places for these teachers. Those who will take .eachers to room and board will confer a favor by making the same known to me. Lost Valuable Hog Win Brandow , owner of the Nemaha Valley herd of Ditroc Jerseys has had the misfortune to ese Eskort 29501 , one of his most valuable animals. The animal was a grandson of Dnroc Challen ger 11163 , a hog that was valued at more than $750.
