Coney Island's Tribute To The
Coney Island stood still for
half an hour yesterday afternoon
as a mark of respect to the late
'Elmer S. Dundy oneof the found
ers of Luna park and a pioneer
in the building1 of new Coney
Island. At 4 o'clock Mr. Dundy's
body was removed from the re
ceiving vault in the old Mora
vian cemetery , Staten Island , tea
a new vault prepared for it.
Promptly on the strike of that
hour all business was suspended.
The music stopped and the res
taurants ceased to serve their
patrons. Thousands of visitors
were wonder-struck by the sud
den transformation , but when
they learned the reason they
joined in the silent honors ot the
Jeptba Dunn.
Jeptha Dunn of Barada died in
Lincoln on Sunday April 2Sth.
1907. Mr. Dunn has been a res
ident of Richardson County for
nearly twenty years , having
made his home with his son R.
J. Dunn in Barada and vicinity
all ot that time.
For some time the old < jen tie-
man , who was vpast 74 years of
age , has been suffering1 from a
complication of ailments ; and in
the hopes of benefiting his health
he was removed to a sanitarium
at Lincoln some three weeks ago.
The deceased is survived by his
widow and two children to whom
the Tribune tenders its sympathy
in the hour of their be'reavment.
The funeral was held from the
home of R. J. Dunn in Barada on
Tuesday. Rev. Teeter of Falls
City being officiating the clergy
Union Tabernacle Meeting.
The great union revival meet
ing for Falls City will have to be
postponed from May 12th. tc
June 2nd. on account of the re
markable success of evangelisl
Oliver at East Liverpool , Ohio.
It being impossible for him tc
close the meetings there withoui
great injustice to the cause.
A second tabernacle has beer
constructed in a suburb when
the meetings are being continued
From the latest report of the pro
gress of the meeting the numbei
of converts has now passed the
1000 mark.
It will be a great day for Fall :
Cit3 * when a man ofsuch not <
and power opens a campaigt
here. Now is the time to adver
tise the good points of Palls City
Falls City Clob Women.
Falls City has a number o
woman's clubs and such ones a
different times have shown i
desire to aid and promote th
general welfare. Why wouldu'
it be a good idea for each one o
these clubs to plant and tend
flower bed Jn the park ? Wi
mean by this a real flower bed
artistically arranged and laid out
It would add greatly to th
general appearance of the par
and will assist in starting righ
what is destined to be the pretties
spot in Southeastern Nebrashn
Now is the time to do this , so wh.
not do it now.
