THb F-ALLS CITY TRIBUNE , FRIDAY , FEBRUARY 23 , 1906
Now and Then.
Charlie Abbey is doing nicely
and has been removed from the
hospital to his home.
Falls City has a grand old man
of 70 who beats 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 with
everything young. The girl has
a fellow and the old man kicked.
"Why don't you marry some
steady , sober man of fifty who is
well settled , " asked the father.
" 1 believe , " ' replied the girl ,
"that I would rather have two of
twenty-five if its j'ltst lite same lu
The dinner by the ladies of the
Shakespeare club to their friends
last Tuesday evening was as
dainty and tasteful as one 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 Gulp wears
a worried look and Charlie Stanton -
ton is getting as thin as a rail
fro.ni worry. Dr. Yutscy has done
his best and started things to
ward the bottom of the thermom
eter several times , but so far
there is nothing doing towards
an ice crop.

If the lady that baked the
bread baked at the Methodist
exchange last week should ever
be in search of employment , she
can learn something to her ad
vantage by communicating with
The world looked like a child's
idea of Heaven last Saturday
morning with the trees and
shrubbery cloaked and swathed
in snow. It looked like a worn
an's idea of hell a few hours after
the sun had got in his work and
the walks and crossings were
cloaked and swathed in mud.
Ed Howe says if you want to
go to the Orient go to Honolulu
but no further as it will be but i
repetition. He advises all of hi
friends to forget all ideas of a
trip around the world. The
truth is , Howe is homesick.
Ned Towle nearly broke up
whist party the other evening
talking about the division. What
he doesn't know about probabili
ties and possibilities isn't worth
knowing , and his enthusiasm ih

Ths Tribune desires good cor
respondents in every part of the
county. If you would like to see
items from your locality in the
paper we would be glad to hear
from you that we may perfect
arrangements to the mutual ad
vantage of both. We want this
paper to be a county paper and
are willing to make great sacri
fices to accomplish this end.
The winter of 1900 is one that
old timers will be talking of for
many years to come. In the
language of a distinguished citi
zen "it is the mildest winter I
have ever seen and I've seen a
hundred of them. "

Are you reading "The Spend
ers" the continued storin The
Tribune ? It is becoming very
interesting and will increase in
interest with each succeeding
chapter. If you have not beer
reading it look back over yourolc
papers or read the synopsis am'
start this week. You will miss r
treat if you fail to read the story
The local company has beet
saying that the proposition sub
initial b\ them \v.v <
to most of tlti * subscribers of tin-
mutual t telephone companies but
11 that their committees were mis-
represcntinu . the wishes of the
j subscribers by refusing anything
but I 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 of15 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 their difiii-
culties without interference on
the part of the local company.
Who owns the streets of Falls
City , anyway ? Why should our
highways be used for personal
profit and in a way that creates a
feeling among the farmers so an
tagotfistic to our merchants that
open letters are being published
from such men as Will Crush
calling uioti 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 of
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
sprang should be compelled to de
clare himself one way or the
other on a question of such im
Alice and Nick are married and
the bride is Alice in wonderland
no longer. The Sunday papers
were filled with glowing accounts
of the happy bride the sun shone
on. A detailed account of the
presents was given with the
price mark attached to each.
We don't know what that thing
was the President of France gave ,
but it cost $50,000 , and Cuba' :
present cost $25,000. The nation :
of the world laugh at the com
mercialism of America and laugl
justly at that- The idea of turn
ing the wedding of the President's
daughter into a matter of dollars
and cents. The idea of looking
gift horse in the mouth and put
ting the price mark on the pres
ents of nations , rulers and tricnds
Be it said to the credit of King
Edward nobody knows the char
acter of his present nor its cost
and no right minded man cares
The next thing we know they
will be giving the cost of grave
clothes , the casket and the How
ers. What are we coming to
anyway that we cannot read o
the wedding of the President' *
daughter without the nauseating
details of the cost of wedding
presents , that we cannot say "w
hope you will be very , very happy
my dear , " without evidencing our
good wishes in dollars and cents ?
The death of Con Reagan re
moved one of Falls City's oldest
oldest and most respected citi
zens. There was a good deal of
a man about Con. He was al
ways cheerful and happy. His
heart was full of sympathy for
the wrongs and griefs of his
friends. lie was always happy
in their happiness. Everybody
liked him because he liked every
body. He never intentionally
hurt a fellow man. He has gone
to his reward. Peace to his ashes.
Ed King , Eph Sandusky , Fred
Kellar and Hob Cain are all
equally elated because of the
stub trains. The service will
permit them to spend much more
of their time at home where for
merly the ) ' put in most of their
time in other places or in making
