the crowd was greatly pleased to

About eight years ago a certain lady ,
not many miles from here , set about
laying aside a part of the money she
could spare from the sale of butter , eggs ,
chickens , garden stuff , etc. , and depos
ited it in the
Falls City State Bank
The interest and accumulations were
added every six months , a new interest
bearing certificate of deposit issued and
a few days ago when the certificate was
renewed the amount exceeded $1,000.00.
Why not try this plan ?
Shot in the Leg Five Years Ago.
Archie Dean a twelve year
Falls City boy was shot in the
leg five years ago while out hunt
ing with his brother. The at
tending physician at that time
not being able to find the bullet
it was left in the leg and caused
him no trouble until three weeks
ago when he slid down from a
haystack and in so doing jarred
the bullet loose. The next morn
ing the limb seemed stiff and
grew gradually worse. Tuesday
evening Drs. Boose and Wolfe
were called and they came to the
conclusion that the leg was full
of pus caused b3r the old shot
wound. An incision was made
and about a pint of pus was taken
out. At this writing Archie is
getting along nicely , but it will
be some time before he is up
A Last Appeal.
The Ladies Auxiliary to the
Stccle Cemetery Association wish
to make this last appeal to the
members of the society also to
those who are not members , but
who are interested in having the
cemetery beautified and kept
We feel that this is a commend
able work and worthy the pat
ronage of every one , especially
those who have loved ones laid
to rest out there , but a few can
not carry this work on alone , we
need funds and help. The ladies
expend not less than fifty dollars
a year and often very much more
in this work.
The Ladies Auxiliary own and
have full control of the water
system that has been put in at
the cemetery and are at a great
expense every year in keeping it
in repair , buying hose , water can ,
etc. . and if people who use the
water do not appreciate it enough
to come forward and pay one
dollar a year for the privilege we
will just simply have to shut it
off. Perhaps some are not aware
that no person has a right to use
the water who does not pay one
dollar a year for the privilige.
All members , of the auxiliary
arc entitled to use the water if
they keep their dues paid up.
Now the members seem to have
lost interest in this matter and
seem to think a few can carry on
this work , but they cannot , and
we arc going to have one more
meeting and if the members don't
turn out and signify by their
presence that they want this to
go on we will not turn the water
on this year and wiU discontinue
This meeting will be in the
form of a reorganization. No
1 back dues will be collected , we
will just start out anew. We
make a special appeal to those
who are not members but who
are interested out there to cotne
and join the auxiliary. The
next meeting will be with Mrs.
