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 promised. 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. Radinsky-Hardin. One of the principals in the following clipping , taken from the Tecumseh Chieftain is well known to Falls City people.

Mr. John Bruhn of Omaha las purchased Mr. Beaulieu's lews stand here , and will con- luct the same in an up-to-date nanner. 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 s dead. 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 ; large estate. George was the only child o John and Marilln Hinton. Hi : mother died some years ago am with the death of George tin 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 Palls City where he has sine 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. To the wife and little daugh ter , to the father who has been eft bereft and alone , the sympa thy of the entire community joes out , trusting that He who s the author of all things good will be with them and comfort them in this the hour of their sadness. The Circus. In the language of the states- nan from Skunk Ridge "the circus has came and went. " The crowd came early from the country round about and all towns within a radius of thirty niles. Because of the long run : rom Kansas City the circus ar rived late and the small boy waiting at the depot from two n the morning until after nine jefore he heard the welcome 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 ; act that has ever visited Falls Citg. Some of the acts were unusual and many were of the highest class. The tent at the afternoon performance was well filled and everybody seemed satisfied. NOTKS. The show is owned by Ring- ling Brothers , they having purchased it at the beginning of the season. Some people drove thirty miles to the show , leaving their homes about midnight in order to be here on time. One of the trapeze performers is an old friend of Mrs. Bert Reavis. His home is in St. Louis and he belongs to a very fine family. His parents are greatly oppossed to his em. ployment. The girl with the white shoes and dress , accompanied by the boy with gloves on his hands and medals on his coat was very much in evidence. The clean streets looked well enough to induce the adminiS' tration to keep them clean all the time. The water tanks provided - vided by the city were a great convenience. What a duece of a time the Giraffe must have when he get' a sore throat. New Wheat. New wheat was being taken in at the Heacock & Son mil ! on Monday morning of this week. This is the first thej have received and it is of ex cellent quality. Another Change. One of our popular mea market proprietors , J. B. Rame has sold his shop to A. E , Schmidt ot Red Cloud. Mr. Ramel has been in oui business circle for some time and we are sorry to see him re tire from our midst. His successor Mr. Schmidt , is an old hand at the butcher business and we can assure his patrons of the best of service , !

Prof. Smith , of Pawnee City , formerly professor of the busi ness college in this city , de livered the sermon , while Kev. Smith of Ilumboldt and Rev. Des Jardiun of Pawnee City assisted by delivering charges. It was a splendid service and one which was a pleasure to all attending. A Pleasant Pound. On Monday evening of this week the memberof the First Christian church visited the liome of their minister and gave lie and his family quite a "pounding , " leaving many tok ens of their love and esteem to replenish the larder and gladden their hearts. Quite a number who were unable to be present sent their tokens with others. All went home feeling the better - ter , for "It is more blessed to give than to receive. Making Good.
