THE FALLS CITY TRIBUNE.
Vol. Ill FALLS CITY , NEBRASKA , FRIDAY , JULY 13 , 1906. Whole No. 13i
Celebration at Rulo.
Another Fourth of July has
followed other Fourths into th e
past , and the celebration at
Rule , is Jilso past but it was a
very nice celebration. The
crowd was large and orderly.
The programme was good and
carried out with care.
The band boys furnished ex
cellent music and the Glee club
n deserve great credit lor the
pleasure their music added to
the occasion. Also several
solos Avere rendered , which in
the writers opinion can not be
beat on the 4th of July or any
other time. A recitation was
also well rendered.
John Wiltse of Falls City
spoke to some length , on Inde
pendence , which showed thought
and care in thp preparation.
Following Mr. Wiltse , Superin
tendent Oliver delivered a very
pleasing talk along educational
lines and while all his talk was
appreciated , one thought was
particularly fine , and that was ,
that what we need more of is
moral education. The last
speeker was F. E. Stump of
Lincoln , his theme was Frater
nity , but his talk was cut short
by the black clouds which were
overcasting the sky , the crowd
scattered and for a while it
looked like the celebration was
ended , but after a nice shower
which cooled the air and laid
the dust , the people began to
meet for the fireworks and other
pleasures , which the evening
Several balloons were sent
up , music and fireworks con
tinued until a late hour. Mr.
Stump gave a public exhibition
ol the Screen work of the A. 0.
U. W. and a grand ball ended
the program for the day.
The large crowd seemed to
enjoy the day , and a nicer , more
orderly crowd would be hard to
find than was entertained in
Rule that day , and the strangers
who visited us on that day ,
will be welcomed again , when
the\T choose to come.
ONE WHO WAS TIIBKE.
One of the principals in the
following clipping , taken from
the Tecumseh Chieftain is well
known to Falls City people.
Louise Radinsky enjoys a large
circle of friends here , who extend
to Mr. and Mrs. Earl Harclin sin
cere congratulations :
At the home of the bride , in
Sterling- , Sunday , July 1 , 1'JOO ,
at 1 o'clock p. m. , occurred the
marriage of Louise Radinsky oi
that town to Earl Hardin of Te
cumseh. Rev. D. B. Lake , pastoi
of the Sterling M. E. church ,
pronounced the ceremony in the
presence of but few relatives. Al
the close of the ceremony a dinner -
ner was served , and that after
noon Mr. and Mrs. Hardin de
parted for Hot Springs , S. D
where they are spending theii
honeymoon. They will return tt
Tecumseh next week and mak <
their home in the groom's house
on East Broadway.
The groom was the eldest ser
of the late Mr. and Mrs. Ilenrj

George Hinton is dead.
Scarcely a week passes that
f he Tribune does not record the
sad news of someone's passing.
Phis week , however , must be
recorded the death of one whc
by reason of the long years
ived among us and the cheerful ,
cindly nature that made him
cnown to the entire community ,
eaves a feeling of personal loss
: o us all. For George Hinton
The old mill by the side of
which he lived as a boy , the
murky river where he swam and
fished long ago with the gener
ation now reaching middle life ,
lis many friends and com
panions who never received
anything but unvarying kind
ness from him will miss him
now that he has gone , and even
though the end has been antici-
lated for months , will feel n
sense of irreparable loss in the
announcement that George Hinton -
ton is dead.
George never seemed able tc
accummulate much of the
world's goodssome way or othei
it never seemed to him thai
wealth was one of life's essen
tials. But he never failed ir
doing a kindly act , nor ir
thoughtfulness of the feeding *
of others , nor in making am
liolding friends , and I guess
that after all is over and tin
lory told and the book closed
that it is fully as important t <
say he never made anyone un
happy and was always true t <
his Iriends , as to say he left ;
George was the only child o
John and Marilln Hinton. Hi :
mother died some years ago am

grief stricken father , to when
the sympathy of the entire com
munity goes out , is left alone
George Hinton was born ii
Kingston , Pa. , on March 2,1807
and was 39 years of age at th
time of his death. While quit
young his parents moved t

lived , with a short interruptior
For a few years he lived i :
Denver but to him there was a :
irresistible force recalling hit
to his old home , so he returnei
to this city and lived here unti
his death last Monday. He wa
married to Lydia Minnick som
few years ago to which union ;
daughter was born. His earl ;
life was spent at the Exchang
mill south of town which , wit !
his father , he operated for man ;
years. He was one of the prc
raoters and owners of the beau
tiful Hinton's park. The latte
part of his life has been lived i
Falls City. About a year ag
his health began to fail and hi
decline was rapid. The drea
disease , tuberculosis , had fasl
ened itself upon him with
tenacity that would not be de
nied. For months he has bee
hesitating at the brink of the
river , but his courage never
failed him neither did he com-
'plain. ' During those days when
he was able to be about town he
! was the same cheerful light
hearted George. When asked
low he felt he always answered
with the courage of one who
uakes a good light , "I am bet
ter. " But his friends saw the
change that was being wrought
and knew that the time was
short. And last Monday at his
lotne on llarlan street the grim
visitor called for him and
George llinton was no more.
The funeral was held Wednes-
.lay afternoon , the interment
being in Steele's cemetery , an
mmense throng following the
remains to the grave.

In the language of the states-

The crowd came early from the
country round about and all

shout of "here she comes. " The
parade did not take place until
after dinner and was witnessed
by a large crowd. The show
was good , one of the best in

unusual and many were of the
highest class. The tent at the
