THE FALLS CITY TRIBUNE , FRIDAY , JUNE 12 , 1908 , THE FALLS CITY TRIBUNE Entered as second-class matter al I'nlls City/Nebraska , post oftice , Janu < nrv 12 , 1W4 , under the Act of Congress jn Mnrch 3,1879. PuMishcd every Friday at Falls City , Nebraska , by The Tribune Publishing Company C. F. Slmrls , Mand/fcr One year Sl.CO Six n'onths "i" Three months 40 TELEPHONE 226. The time lias arrived when a dry weather man could command good premium. The rain mak crs will have to vamoose. Brother-in-law Tom Allen will have to be muzzled or the Democ racy will be kept busy explaining away the $20,000 contribution from a New York syndicate. Not many years ago ( a purse was made up in this community to get rain makers here to make it rain. Why not change the or ilcr and employ some dry weather man to manufacture a little dry weather. You can not judge manhood aael womanhood by the garments worn. Many of the brightest characters are enclosed within humble garments , and many of the vilest under fine silks and broad-cloth. If our forefathers of fifty and sixty years ago , who then spoke of Nebraska as a portion of the great American desert , could look tJown upon our plains today they would be compelled to say , verily , "The desert has been made tc blossom as the rose. " We are promised another raise In the price of beef of from 1 to-C cents per pound. At this rate we will be compelled to bccom < more largely vegetarian than ever The only way , apparently , to nice a raise in price of meats is to cu down the consumption of it. Our esteemed contemporary the Palls City News , is scverel ; shocked by the views ot Mr. Wat son , concerning its demigod , Mr W. J. Brjan. In 18 % . while ; vice presidential candidate will Mr , Bryan , his every utteranct was gospel. Now everything ii false , abuse , and slander. Tin News has our sympathy. Iloke Smith , ol Georgia , wa ; beaten for renomination for gov miorof his state , although lu has served but one year. Hi stumped the state u n d m a d < speeches in every county. Mr Brown , his successful opponent made no speeches and won thi nomination. Silence is sometime evidence of political , wisdom. Rumor has reached us tha Silas R. Barton of Grand Island grand recorder of the A. O. U.W , also a member of the finance com uiittee of the supreme lodge , wi ! be a candidate for state aiulitc on the republican ticket. Mi Barton is well known throughot : the state , and the fact of his ha ; ing been elected five times to th office of grand recorder of th A. O. U. W. proves the hig esteem in which he is held an that he is the right man for tli place , A local politician , who is note for his sound political judgmen has some interesting figures c the probable vote for Bryan ar Taft in the electoral colleg He figures that of the 484 ele toral votes to be cast , Taft wi be sure of 2')0 or 47 votes mo than will be needed to elect hit : He concedes 127 electoral votes Bryan and 66 votes as doubtfu Even if Bryan were to receive a of the 66 votes which he classifu as doubtful , he would still be i votes short of election. No1 So let us saw wood and prepa for four more years of Republic : control. Bryan will still be fn to tour the country as a chauta qua lecturer. Jim McDowell and wife of T tumseli , came down the first tke week for a visit with relativ la this city. pOHHaKSME BK * SMIBB M I IK . ! 11 I I ' " i lll II II I III - I M i .

Falls City State Bank Capital and Surplus , $70,000.00 Dr. Miller on Bryan and tue $15,000.00. The following letter from Dr. Miller of Omaha to the Omaha Bee is to the point and worthy of reproduction in these columns. It is a letter from a very able Democrat , who was once editor of the Omaha Herald , a staunch Democratic paper. We give it below without further comment : Omaha , June 4 , 1908. To the Kditor of the Bee : The revelations which show that $15,000 was brought into the state in 1/J04 with which to buy votes in "blocks of five" and per capita that Mr. Bryan might be sent into a cushioned seat in the United States senate and George Washington Bcrge might occupy the governor's chair , which is now undeniably adorned by Gco. L. Sheldon , came like a clap of what Lord Byron might call "live thunder1' from a cloudless sky. The shock among the Bryancse democracy and to Mr. Bryan him self appears to be something awful. Hit birds are Hying tc cover in every direction and feath ers curtain the shining sun , Brother-in-Law Allen throws uj his holy hands , and the almightj and everlasting Dahlman opens his mouth in concerted chorus t < admit that they got and spent tht money , both swearing that Bryar knew nothing about it. "Who said he did ? Why thii hurricane of protest which teemi in the press and keeps the wire ! hissing hot , with denials fron Mr. Bryan and his trusted confi dants that the peerless and pun One knew nothing about it ? ' Certainly , and , of course , Mr Bryan knew nothing about it.1 Of course not. A very suspicious and acute man is Mr. Bryan in al political and personal affairs ex cept when vast sums of monej are buying votes for him THAT DAI.V VUND. Ten years ago a similar thitif happened when some one of hi : audacious henchmen escaped fron his control and lied into tin "Rocky" of Heosidam , the silvc mounted abode of Marcus Dal ; and other "plutocrats1 am brought down to Omaha fron $50,000 to$75,000 of their taintci money for the same purpose Twenty-five or $30,000 was raise in the state to buy up local lead crs. and $40,000 is said to hay t beed needed in Omaha to buy on and buy up newspapers and ganu of starving loafers in the lowe wards of the city in that day c universal distress from panic an poverty. Mr. Bryan evidentl e "knew nothing about it" then t the same extent that he "kno\\ nothing about the $15,000 hat from "Wall street" and thoj political pirates and personal ou laws , Ryan and Sheehan , as M Bryan hasiso often described then Of course not. lie is simpl 11 minded and dull in all such wicl 11u 11e edness in politics and he seems 1 u be hopelessly benighted. And here comes another of tl o 1. B.'s in our hi h-born politics i 11 the person of George Washingtc 11S : Berge , stool pigeon for Mr.Bryai who was the camNute for go ernor. According to the almifjhi v , e and everlasting Dahlman , cvci cent of that $15,000 rotten mon < n was obtained for the sole purpo of electing him governor , and h too , ' 'knew nothing about it. " TIMBliKV'OK KNOW-NOTHING I AK' It is respectfully submitted th jf a full-fleged know-nothing par could be organized in Nebrasl with this kind of very raw mate ial if Mr. Bryan would consent to decorate its head , and Stool- Pigcon Berge would agree to grace the tail. Mr. Berge also "knew nothing about it , " because like the explosive Mr. Bryan , he says so himself , which , of course , ought to settle the question be yond all debate or doubt , es pecially since Brother-in-Law Allen and our eminent ) uniyersal and everlasting friend Dahlman declare the same thing. My dis tinguished neighbor , Constantine Smyth , I think , would agree with me in this as a fine lawyer and a gentleman of rare judg ment. That anonymous lawyer .mentioned by the Bee should im mediately proceed to hide his diminished head after having said that Mr. Bryan knew all about it. At any rate Mr. Bryan and Mr. Berge are the most benighted pair that were ever heard of in all the annals of the democratic party. Mr. Bcrge didn't see or touch a dollar of that royal fifteen thousand for which Brother-in- Law Allen and our universal and everlastling friend Dahlman jour neyed 3,000 miles for the sole purpose of making him governor of the state. This curious fact evidently dazes and disgusts him. But he should be reasonable. Those who know the political purity of soul of Mr. Bryan can readily understand why Brother- in-Law Allen and the universal and everlastling Dahlman did not let him "know anything about it. " They were afraid he would be shocked out of the campaign for the senate if he were allowed to "know anything about it. " For the same heavenly reason , it is more than likely , they also de cided not to allow Mr. Berge to "know anything about it. " My own deliberate opinion isi if I may be allowed to express an opinion on my own work , that I have made the vindication of the two benighted B.'s as clear as mud. GnouGK L.

Every Canadian a Villager. Perhaps every Canadian does not know that ho Is a "villager , " says the London News. For the country owes its name to a curious misconception on the part of M. Jacques Cartler , who is credited with the discovery ol the St Lawrence. Ho could make but little out of the conversation of the natives , and , hearing them frequently use the word "Kanata , " their name for a village , he fell into the mistake of supposing that It was the name ol their country. Thus , In more than one sense , has Canada grown from a little village to a great state. An Unlucky Coin. "The quarter-dollar , " said a numls matlst , "should be a very unluckj coin. It Is nothing but one mass ol thlrteens. There are 13 stars on it There are 13 letters In the scroll thai the eagle holds In its claws , there ar ( 13 feathers In the eagle's tall , and there are 13 feathers In Us wing. Or the shield there are 13 parallel lines 13 horizontal stripes and 13 arrow heads. Finally , In the word 'quarter dollar' there arc just 13 letters. " But Yet a Man ! "I suppose I have about the mos thoughtful , kind and considerate hus band In the world , " she was saying eadly.

An uptown doctor * who Is noted fo Inclslveness of language was sltUnj In his offlco the other day when th telephone bell rang. "Hello , " answered the doctor. ' ; Hello. " came a voles. "Is this th undertaker's office ? " "No , " replied the doctor , "you'v It a little , " d U hung up t& " HAD TO BE MORE EXPLICIT. "Dear Grandpa" Conveyed Little to Post Office Officials. A member of the Yale basketball team which played here a night or two ago received a check a present In three figures from his grandfather who lives in n New Jersey town. The check , as a matter of fact , was a fake prepared by William L. Lush , the Yale coach , formerly left fielder on the Cleveland baseball team , who was hero with the team. But fake or no fake the recipient of the check got mighty excited. Ho raced right across the Hollenden lobby to the telegraph desk , the min ute ho saw the size of the check , and wrote out a telegram as follows : "Dear Grandpa , , New Jersey. Thanks very much for check. This IB a receipt. Your grandson. " He wrote It just that way. Then ho hustled into the writing room to thank grandpa more fully by letter. While ho was preparing the letter a bellboy brought him back his tele gram , along with the 30 cents ho had paid to send It 30 In pennies and this was written across the mes sage : "Can't find anybody named dear grandpa. " Then the Yale boj came to. Cleveland Plain Dealer. WHY BE CRABBED ABOUT AQE ? One Instance , at Least , In Which It Brought No Good. At the dinner that the Chicago Press club gave In Edward Payson Weston's honor , the veteran pedes trian said of old age : "Ago Is no crime , but you would think so from the way some people try to conceal It. We can give the lie to ago by being gay , vigorous , bouyant , and it is foolish of us to resent our burden of years In any other manner. "Tho aged Bon Davles of St. Joseph resented his years in a foolish , crusty , surly way. " 'Hello , old man Daviesl * an elder ly St. Joseph lawyer said to him one morning. " 'Old ! ' Davles snarled. 'Old , hey ? Well , how about yourself ? I'm no old er than you are. What's your earliest recollection ? ' "Tho lawyer grinned at old man Davles and replied : ' "Well , let me see. Yes , I think that's it. My earliest recollection Is hearing folks say : 'There goes old man Davles. ' " Messenger Pigeons. In taking Its observations the mes senger pigeon rises to the height vary ing between 200 and 700 feet , accord ing to the climatic or other local con ditions. But , whether the height bo 200 or 700 feet , the pigeon flies in a series of circles , but always returns to a central position Immediately above the spot from which It has been released. As soon as it has accurately determined its direction it darts off for home. The speed varies accord ing to atmospheric conditions. With a strong wind behind them , they will fly at a velocity of 1,500 or l.COO yards a minute. Stilt Skating. "They skate on stilts In Sweden , " said a traveler. "It Is an odd and pretty sight to see. Hero a girl skims along , elevated two feet above the Ice. There goes an expert upon stilts flvo feet high. "Stilt skating is very , very difficult. Nevertheless , the Swedes do the outer and inner edge , cut rings backward , even make the grapevine. "But when they fall ! A fall from five-foot stilts often makes a hole In the Ice. " Knew How to Treat a Lady. ' The woman had been accused of murder , the evidence sustaining the charge , but the jury brought In a verdict of "not guilty. " "How did you reach such a mon strous conclusion ? " asked the Judge , severely. "Your honor , " returned the fore man , do we look like 12 jays that don't know how to treat a lady ? "
