Falls City an undesirable place
in which to live and I ain't going
te help you fellows ruin it.
Falls City has two industries
that are not properly appreciated ;
they are the poultry industry and
the walnut log business. More
than five thousand dollars in
poultry business is done in Falls
City every two weeks. Sixty
eight car loads of walnut logs
have been shipped out of this
town in the last ten months.
Because of these two enterprises
Falls City has reaped thousands
of dollars every month.
The band stand should not be
built in the corner of the court
house yard. The most conven
ient place would be close to the
south door where the audience
could sit and listen to the music
instead of standing in the street
as would be necessary if the
stand should be constructed in the
corner. Another good reason is
that one of the prettiest things
in Falls City is the corner flower
bed. To destroy this and put a
band stand there would detract
materialv ! from the appearance
of the public aquare.
The persistent advertiser is
the man who does the business.
To keep your name constantly
before the public is the real
sucess in commercial advertising.
If the readers of your local paper
would be shown your name every
time they pick up the paper it
would mean dollars every week.
To familiarize the buying public
with your business , your wares
and your prices , and to keep them
constantly before the public is
to cultivate a habit of visiting
your store which gives you the
opportunity to make good.
Here is an incident showing the
value of continuous advertising
A firm placed on the market a
commodity which we will call
Soaper's Soap. Every time the
business man ate his breakfast
he saw in the morning paper the
term ' 'Soapcr'ssoap" . The busi
ness man kept right on using the
old kind. One day his wife told
him to get some soap and he for
got it until lie saw his car com
ing , so he rushed into the store
and called for soap. "What
kind' , ? The business man wis
in a hurry and called out the
name which had been impressed
on his mind by persistent adver
tising , "Soaper's soap" . He took
it home and found out it was the
real thing and the advertised
article had another customer.

Nebraska Free High School Law.
The legislature of Nebraska
this winter passed a new free
high school law. It passed
with the emergency clause and
is now a part of the public
school law of Nebraska. Par
ents or guardians who desire
the /benefits of this law must
make applications to the
County Superintendent before
the second Monday in June
The blanks are in the office ,
ready to be sent on application.
Pupils who have finished the
eighth grade in the rural schools
are entitled to the benefits of
this law , i. e. those who re
ceived the county diploma this
year or in the past , provided
they are able to do the ninth
grade work in some high school.
Also pupils who are in the high
school and desire to continue
the work of the high school :
those who pass , this year from
the ninth to the tenth grade , or
from the tenth to the eleventh ,
or from the eleventh to the
twelfth grades , in the high
school should make this ap
Parents and guardians should
write to the County Super
intendent immediately for the
blank application. Pupils who
have failed to an eighth grade
diploma may have a second
trial on the subjects where the
grade fell below 70 per cent.
Some have failed on only one
or two subjects. In order to se.
cure the eighth grade diploma
the pupil must have a general
average of 150 per cent , with no
grade below 70 per cent.
Pupils who desire to make
this second trial may write to
me and arrangements will be
made for the examination. Do
not wait , the time is short.

The Sacred Codfish , Its Maker.
A cotllish , carved in wood ,
hangs nn th < white mahogany
wall of the Massachusetts Hall
of Representatives in the State
house , in Boston. Between two
classic pillars it occupies a
place of honor , directly op-
poite the desk of the presiding
officer. This wooden fish is the
renowned original sacred cod
fish of the Old Colony , and it
has assisted at the delibera
tions of the lawmakers of Mas
sachusetts for more than a cen
tury and a half , gathering sanct
ity year by year. It is a relic
of the old building which pre
ceded the present State-house ,
and great is the dignify of this
souvenir of Colonial art and in-
The following account of its
origin is given in the Boston
Budget and Beacon :
"Captain John Welch , of Bos
ton , was the creator and carver
of the celebrated fish. He was
a wood-carver of renown for
his time , and in 1747 established
his business in Dock Square.
He belonged to the Ancient and
Honorable Artillery Company ,
and afterward became its cap
tain. He was called upon to
the decoration of the Colonial
Assembly Hall i and as , at that
period , codfish was the colony's
main article of export , Captain
Welch conceived the idea of im
mortalizing the king fish of the
Massachusetts waters. When
completed , the carving was
finished oil and colored so as to
be a facsimile of life , and was
hung on the wall of the As
sembly Hall. The Scrap Book.
There will be a meeting of the
Old Settlers held at Dawson on
Tuesday June 4th , l'J07 ' at 2 o'
clock p' m. at Cummings Hall
to set the dates for the An
nual picnic , select the com-
mitties and transact any other
business that may come before
the meeting. Everybody invited
to be present.

The people in all lines of duty
who do the most work are the
calmest , most unhurried. Duties
never wildly chase each other in
their lives. One ta k never turns
another out , nor ever compels
hurried , imperfect doing. The
calm spirit works methodically ,
doing one thing at a time well ,
and it therefore works swiftly ,
though appearing to be in no

The Tribune may be some
thing of a scold and it may be
pretty free with its advice , but
we have a few ideas and seemingly
can't re fain from speaking out in
meeting. What burdens us at
this time is the prevelancc of the
cocaine habit among a few of
the unfortunates. The drug
habit , because of its cheapness
and the exhiliration following
its use. is becoming a greater
menace to America than all the
booze and tobacco sold. Every
community is either fighting it
or is permitting a condition to
grow that will cause a world of
unhappiness and misery. The
destruction caused by cocaine or
morphine is greater a hundred
fold than whisky. It ruins the
health and destroys the moral
preceptions of every person who
uses it. A Falls City physcian
said the other day that a pound
of cocaine was worse than a
hogshead of whisky. To protect
those who are unfortunately too
weak to refrain from such per
nicious habits the city should
pass a drastic measure making it
a penalty to sell these drugs with
out a prescription from a reput
able physcian , and to prohibit
the filling of the same prescrip
tion twice. You say that this
habit is not prevalent in Falls
City ? You do not know. Ask

ers was held last Friday and
Saturday in the office of county
Supt. Oliver. An unusually
large number of teachers were
examined this month. Beside
those from Falls City who were
examined there were eighteen
from other town in the county
and a few from Kansas.
