THIS FALLS CITY TRIBUNE , FRIDAY , FEBRUARY 23. 1906
Now and Then.
Charlie AbbtM is doing iiiceh
and has been removed from the
hospital to his home.
Falls City has a grand old man
of 7 ( > who boats the game of
sausage and buckwheat cakes
for breakfast every morning. His
son , with whom he lives and who
makes a breakfast out of toasted
crackers and grape nuts , says the
old man is an ostrich.
A good story is told of a local
girl whose father is a grouchy
old fellow in love with the good
old times and out of sorts witli
everything young. The girl ha *
a fellow and the old man kicked.
"Why don't you marry some
steady , sober man of fifty who \ *
well settled , " asked the father.
MI believe , " replied the girl ,
"that I would rather have two of
twenty-live if its just the same to
The dinner by the Indie1 * of the
Shakespeare club to their friends
las ) Tuesday evening was as
dainty and tasteful as OIK * could
wish , it didn't suit the husband
of one of the members however ,
as he said very audibly as the
meat course was being discussed ,
"I'd rather have backbone and
kraut a dang site. "
This ice proposition is becom
ing serious. George Cttlp wears
a worried look and Charlie Stanton -
ton is getting as thin as a rail
frgm worry. Dr. Yutx.y has done
his best and started things to
ward the bottom of the thermom
eter several times , but so fai
there is nothing doing towards
an ice crop.
If the lady that baked tin
bread baked at the Mcthodisi
exchange last week should eve :
be in search of employment , slu

vantage by communicating witl

Ed Howe says if you want t <
go to the Orient go to Ilonolult
but no further as it will be but i
repetition. He advises all of hi :
friends to forget all ideas of ;
trip around the world. Tlu
truth is , Howe is homesick.

Ths Tribune desires good cor
respondents in every part of th
county. If you would like to se <
items from your locality in th
paper we would be glad to hea
from you that we may perfec
arrangements to the mutual ad
vantage of both. We want thi
paper to be a county paper an
are willing to make great sacr
fices to accomplish this end.
The winter of I'JOu is one thr
old timers will be talking of fc
many years to come. In tli
language of a distinguished cit
zen "it is the mildest winter
have ever seen and I've seen
hundred of them. "
Are you reading "The Speiv
ers" the continued story in Tl
Tribune ? It is becoming ve :
interesting and will increase
interest with each succecdii
chapter. If you have not bei
reading it look back overyouro
papers or read the synopsis ai
start this week. You will miss
treat if you fail to read the stor
The local company has bei
saying that the proposition su
mittcd l > \ them was s.uisi.ulon
to most of the subscribers ol thr
mutual telephone companies but
that their committees were mis-
represcntinu the wishes of the
subscribers by refusing anything
but a toll station. It may throw
some light on this phase of the
subject to state that the Preston
company in annual session last
week decided by a vote of 45 to 3
to decline the Falls City proposi
lion and again appeal to the citi
zens of Falls City for a toll
station. It seems to a man up a
tree that the people of Falls City
might be able to settle tlioirdiflii-
culties without interference on
the part of the local company.
Who owns the streets of Falls
City , anyway ? Why should out
highways be used for personal
profit and in a way that creates a
feeling among the farmers so an
tagoifistic to our merchants that
open letters arc being published
from such men as Will Crush
calling upon telephone subscrib
ers to boycott our town. This is
not a personal matter with The
Tribune. It won't mean a cent
to us whatever the termination ol
the controversy is. It is a per
sonal matter to the merchants of
the city , it is dollars and cents to
them. We feel that every candi
date for Mayor and council this
spring should be compelled to de
clare himself one waj * or the
other on a question of such im
