ALLS CITY TRIBUNE. T ! Vol. Ill FALLS CITY , NEBRASKA , FRIDAY , NOVEMBER 2 , 1906. Whole No. 147 J Ice Plant Moved. The ice plant is being dis mantled this week , as the own ers , The Larlciu Manufacturing Co. , of Omaha , are preparing to take the same to Omaha. It- was thought at one time that this institution would be one of value to this city but the exper iment was not very successful as the plant only ran one sea son. The ice it turned out was of excellent quality but the ex pense entailed by its production more than ate up the revenue it brought in. For several seasons the plant has been idle and this spring it was thought that another - other trial would be made but this plan never consummated in realization. We are sorry that it was not a success. Method In Their Madness. The Tribune has been criticis ing the judgment of McCray and Stalder for their foolish position concerning bridges. If rumors about the court house are correct , this criticism is hardly justified. Of course the attempt to ignore the Gilligan contract will be pro ductive of one or more law suits- but these law suits will be against the county and not against indi viduals. While these cases are being fought the county will be build ing bridges under the supervision of some member of the bridge committee. McCray and Stalder are members of the bridge com mittee and will doubtless oversee the construction of these bridges. For this service the county must j pay $3.00 per day. While the county is fighting and paying for law suits , certain members of the board will be ' drawing. $3.00 per day because of the contest. Of course the rumors about the court house may be incorrect , but we can't see where the county comes in can you ? Friedly's Hog Sale. Saturday last was the thir teenth annual Poland China hog sale held by Ferd Friedly of Verdon , who is among the pioneer neer breeders of this section. "Like all its predecessors , it was a success throughout and the youngsters brought the high dollar as a rule. J. W. Stowder of Auburn , topped the sale for one of his choice at $58 and he certainly was a beauty. R. Cope of this city thought enough of this herd to back his judgment for two good ones which he could not reach until they caught the $80 mark. Harden Bowers of Ver don , lives close enough to the herd to realize their true worth and made good on a couple of fine ones. Will McDougall of Salem knows a choice bunch of hogs when he sees them and is always willing to pay the top when they reach the standard of excellency he fixes. This bunch must have reached that limit as he became the owner ol eight head before the sale closed. Chris Horn of Barada wanted to better his prospects for an up-to-date herd and took home a fine youngster. This is but a few of those in attendance and buyers from abroad were numerous , many choice pigs going to neighbor ing states and counties north o here. Cols. Marion and Leon ard who had charge ot this sale certainly did themselves proud and all are well pleased witl the results. j . . _ - . Mrs. Rose Avery and children left Tuesday evening for thei future home in California. Family Gathering. John Martnet and Fred Lehn- herr , two prosperous farmers of the west end returned Saturday from attending a family reunion at Pine Island , Minnesota. The event was in honor of an aged brother-in-law , Fred Lchnherr and family. Mr. Lehnherr has passed the eighty line and is still hale and hearty , and in fact he appeared to be the youngest member in the gathering. John Martnet , of this county , married his sister many years ago , and became interested in improving a large tract of Rich ardson county land in Spciser precinct , this being the first time in forty-one 30ars that he has seen time to visit the family. One can scarcely imagine the changes that have taken place in these families during this long period and are filled with wonder at just what the feeling in the breast might be at a reunion of this nature. G. F. Lehnherr , the son , locat ed in this county some twenty years ago and has made frequent yisits to the old home. Six years ago accompanied by his aunt , Mrs. John Marmet , he spent a couple of weeks with his parents. On this occasion how ever he met a brother whom he had not seen for fourteen years. Surely nothing can bring more happiness to the aged parents than the home-coming of the children whom they have watched with care through all these long 'ears , and we often think that a hadow of sorrow also mingles vith the thought that it is proba- ly the last time the } ' may gather s an unbroken circle. Walker Whiteside. This popular star appeared before the people ot Falls City , it the Gehling , last Friday eve. ning , in the Magic Melody , iidging from the well filled louse , strange faces and large numbers from neighboring owns , this is the class of imusements that pleases the public. Many assert that while the Magic Melody is an excellent olay , it does not bring out the nil force and character of Mr. iVhiteside , as an artist , equal to other productions in which le takes the leading part. However , all must admit that : his was a very pleasing pro duction and that each member of the company was an artist n his and her part , and the production was pleasing as a whole. We are glad to hear numer ous flattering remarks regarding our home orchestra which ap peared at the Gehling and their selectionson , this occasion Avere of a very high order. We are glad that the manage ment was upheld in procuring amusements of this high order by so large an attendance , which will certainly enthuse him to procure further high class attractions. Kicked by a Horse. While engaged with his farm duties Sunday morning , Alex Bohman living on the McDowel place three miles northwest o this city , was severely injurec by a fractious horse. At the first blow Mr. Bohman was struck on the head and in at tempting to approach the horse again , he received a seconc blow on the leg , which laid him up the fore part of this week However , we are glad to state that no bones were broken am that Mr. Bohman will recove entirely. Henry T. bpeer was here from Barada the past Wednesday. Shop Changes Hands. i Mr. Smith was in from his farm near Salem on Monday and while here sold his Unisonal ) arlor to Mrs. Clara Babb- lines. Mrs. Glines has but ecently finished a course in arbering at an Omaha school uul is prepared to give her pecial attention to the work , jleorge Prater will still retain lis place in the shop. Wrenched His Shoulder. While assisting in lifting a ookcase last Saturday morn- ng , George Ilossack receiveda everely wrenched shoulder. Mie cords of the neck and shouter - er were badly strained and it vill be some time before George vill be able to turn his head vititout experiencing m u c h lain. A Close Call. While helping at the Gehling heatrc last Friday eve , pre- jaring for the Magic Melody , ' larvey Decker missed his bal- ince and fell down the trap doorway to the first floor. The distance which he fell was some wenty feet and those working vith him at the time thought hat he had surely fallen to his loath , or at the very least , to a erious injury. Ho\veveryoung ) ecker was only stunned a trifle y his flight through space and lis hard fall. This was one of he drops not included in the 'egular list and we are glad testate state that it did not end ser- o'usly. State Agriculture. Through the kindness of Vin cent Arnold , of Verdon , we arc n receipt of a copy ol the annual report of the State \gricultural society , for the year J905. It is a very neat jook and contains much valu- sble information , and was com- nled by W. S.
