The Falls City Tribune. > Vol. V FALLS CITY, NEBRASKA, FRIDAY, AUGUST 28, 1908. Number 32 CITY COUNCIL AN IMPORTANT MEETING HELD I.AST FRIDAY EVENING Contract for Pump. Pump House and Wells Awarded to Mr. Merkle of Kansas City At the meeting of the city council Friday evening, Aug. 21 the bids for the pump, power house and wells were opened and read and the contract for same awarded to Mr. Merkle of Kansas City, at the price of 82, 850. The test well now on the grounds, will be used and the contract calls for three addition al wells. Work will be com menced at once, the same to be completed by November 1st. This is the last of the con tracts to be awarded for the new water and light plant, and the council feel that they have ac complished much good work, since all the improvements con tracted lor will come within the appropriation fund. The contractors for the taak, tower and pipe line will arrive in the city this week to begin their work. Their first work will be the work on the tower, which will be located on the Miles block, as first decided up on. It is now only a matter of a very short time until Falls City will have a water and light plant which will be a pride to our citizens. The council have had a most strenuous time during the past few months in settling these vi tal questions, and now that they are settled, let us at least be thankful |to them for the time and labor spent in the interests of our city. It Is False All statements ol whatever sort, coming from whatsoever source, that the Methodist-Epis copal church has committed it self to Bryan is false and mis leading. The Methodist church never has in all its history7 pledged its members to the sup port of any party, neither have they tried to influence them one way or the other, no circular has been issued, nor word sent along the line, no article written in any of its numerous publications seeking to influence its members to vote either for Mr. Bryan or for Mr. Taft. Rev. C. A. Mastin. School Opens Next Monday On next Monday, Aug. 31, our public schools will open for the term. Everything is readiness, and a big enrollment is looked for.

Be on hand at the ringing of the bell Monday morning._ Building Addition In order to accommodate their increasing business, Heacock A Son are building quite a large addition to their mill to be used as a storage house for flour. Our people all wrant the best, and as a result this firm is kept busy almost night and day. Special State Fair Rates TheBurlington have announced their rate of one and one-half fare for the state fair, good for all week. This makes the cost from Falls City, including admis sion to the grounds and street car fare, S3.40. Closing Out Sale Eobt Paul will hold a closing out sale on his farm two and one-half miles north of Eulo, on Tuesday, September 29. Fuil particulars will be given later. OUR BAND -What Ed Howe of The Atchison Globe Has to Say That Ed. Howe still has a hankerin’ after Falls City, his old home, or anything pertain ing thereto, is very evident from the following items taken from the Atchison Globe of Aug. 20: “Considering that we used to play in the Falla City band, it’s funny it didn’t serenade the Globe office today.’’ “This reporter points with pride to the Falls City band, which is in town today; he used to play in that organization. But it is safe to say that no member of the band remembers the time when this reporter played in the Falls City band; more than thirty years ago.” “Alois Philipp, an old band teacher, said today: ‘The Palls City band is pretty good.’ That’s the band we used to play with. We began on the bass drum and then took the tuba, or bass horn. Then we tried alto, tenor, and cornet. We never could play alto, tenor or cornet very well, but we played the tuba so well, that the teacher was jealous; he had a son who played tuba in the Arago band, and the teacher used to tell around that we were no better than his son, Emil.” A FAREWELL Tendered a Number of Our People Who are Leaving the City. On Thursday evening a recep tion was given at the home of Rev. Dr. Bailey, as a sort of a farewell to a number of his con gregation who are leaving the city. A large crowd was present to wish them success in their new fields and the program consisting of vocal and instrumental selec tions, reading and speeches was very interesting. Nice refresh ments were served. These people will be greatly missed by the pastor in hischurch and Sunday school work but they go with the good will and best wishes of all. Those leaving are Mrs. Maud Davies and daughter Helen who go to Eames, Iowa; .Viable Green wald and Miss Snidow to Lamars Iowa. Beulah Greenwaldto Idaho to teach; Anita Wilson to Val paraiso. Ind., to study music; Dorathea Morehead and Ruth Heacock to Lincoln to University and Alice Yoder and Anna Mason will teach in the country. MORE SCHOOLING .. . . — Miss Anita Wilson to Attend School at Valparaiso. Indiana Miss Anita Wilson is expecting to leave next week for Valoaraiso, Ind., where she will attend the school of music which has made that town famous in the past few years. While Miss Wilson expects to take special work in the school she will also continue her violin and vocal studies. Miss Anita’s ability in these branches have given her great prominence in the musical circles in this vicini ty, and her many friends here feel that she has a splendid fu ture before her. She has a beau tiful contralto voice and has dis played more than ordinary skill on her favorite instrument, the violin. We are sure to hear more of Miss Anita. Baptist Church Morning service at 11 o’clock, evening service 8 o’clock, Sunday school 9:45 a, m., prayer meeting Wednesday 8 p. m. All are in vited to these services. G- F. Reichel, Pastor.

It was apparent from the start that the teams were evenly matched and at no time could either side claim the game, and it was only won by hard work and the best of playing. Floyd pitched for Troy and Schtnelzel for Falls City, each al lowing but five hits. Each man played his position and the game from start to finish was a fine ex" hibition. Score by innings: Troy.0 0 0 2 0 0 0 0 0—2 Falls City.. ..0 0 0 10 1 2 0 0—4 The second game was even better than the first. Our boys played without an error and Troy made but two. Wakefield, the colored gentle man, was in the box for the visi tors, and the way he did curve that ball was a caution, but our boys landed on him for six hits. Heacock did the twirling for the home team, and while he let sev eral men walk, that seemed to be the only way they could get to a base, as he allowed but two hits, and try as they would, all they could do would be to knock little pop-ups, making good practice work for the fielders. The result by innings: Troy.000000 0 0 0—0 Falls City ....12000000 0—3 NOTES. Willard Sears wa» back at his old place in left field, and as usual got everything coming his way. The Troy ball team are among the nicest young fellows that ever played ball in our city, and we hope they will play here again before the season closes. Troy’s third baseman is a dan dy, but he can’t beat Clare Foster. The double plays on Friday in which Foehlinger,Heck and Wapp figured would have done credit to any of the big league players. Poteet didn’t allow a ball to pass him. Cornell can play any place you put put him, but he has no equal when it comes to getting the ball into the diamond from center field. ____ Our boys again lost to Atchison Tuesday by a score of 4 to 0, but even at that, it was a dandy game, and greatly enjoyed by the large crowd in attendance. Kelsey pitched a fine game for the home boys and but for the few costly errors, the score would have read differently. He struck out eight men, while Morgan, who did the twirling for Atchi-| son, had but seven to his credit. That Atchison has one of the very best ball teams, cannot be denied, but we still contend that they have to play their very best when they go against Falls City,' and it's anybody's game from I start to finish. A feature of the game was the splendid fielding by both teams and two double plays by Atchison. For three innings there was as fine an exhibition of ball playing as one could wish for, but in the fourth Atchison scored three runs on errors and an earned run in the seventh, and while our boys succeeded in making several hits, they were so scattered that they failed to draw a prize. The only excuse we can offer for the defeat is errors, or a hard luck story. Atchison 0003001 0 0—4 Falls City 00000000 0—0 STRICKEN DOWN E. E BETLL OF THIS CITY VICTIM OF APPOPLEXY Is Now in a Critical Condition At His Rooms in the National Hotel The sad news has reached us that our townsmen, R. R. Hell, was stricken with appoplexy about 1 1 o’clock at the National hotel. Mr. Bell lor sometime has been traveling for a drug firm but gave up bis position recently, intend ing to rest as he had not been feeling well. His condition was not considered serious, however, and when the stroke came it was a great shock. Up to the time of going to press he is still unconscious and the attending physicians give no hope of his recovery. CUPID'S WORK Miss Emma Brecht and William Koso United in Marriage On Thursday afternoon, Aug. 20th, occurred a pretty little wedding out at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Brecht, north east of the city, Promptly at 3 o’clock the bridal party entered the parlor when the Rev. Dr. Bailey pro nounced the words that made Mr. William Koso and Miss Emma Brecht husband and wife. Only the immediate friends of tlu* family were present to wit lie'ss the ceremony. Mr. George Brecht performed the duties of best man and Miss Maude Mc Caun very- efficiently served as bridesmaid. It is the intention of Mr. and Mrs. Koso to go to farming a few miles north of the home of the bride's parent’s where they will be glad to welcome their friends. The usual dinner served so generously in the dining room was appreciated by all present. Both poung people have many friends in this vicinity who unite with the Tribune in extending congratulations. URSULINE ACADEMY ' j This Splendid School Will Open September Seventh The convent sisters returned Tuesday evening from York, where they have been attending the institute.

Those Au/ful "Pipe Oreams" They're Something Terrible We are acquainted with an edi tor that Binokes a cob pipe, and we are able to slate with some de gree of accuracy, that the pipe weighs no less than ten pounds, empty. Now, when this veteran editor, las well as smoker) tills that pipe with good old corneake tobacco, and then starts it to going with a-match, information just seems to stew right out of him, and lie dreams—dreams lie can see Bryan in the while house, and dreams that he has a larger circu lation than any other paper in the county, that lie pays more help than any other print shop in the city, that his printers nre better workmen than those cinployed in the office of his contemporaries. He says so himself. The pipe he smokes must be a merry widow ’cause we never saw anything its equal. We’ll have to take his word for the rest. We never took much stock in Dr. Osier’s theory that all men should be chloro formed when they reach the age of 50, but we are about to change our mind.

A WINNING HERD j BILLY" HOLT ACTED A LITTLE "HOGGISH" IN DES MOINES Carried Away About All the Prizes in Sight at Iowa State Fair Last week W. R. Holt shipped the pick of his fine herd of Herk shire hogs to Des Moines. Iowa, where they were placed on exhi bition at the state fair, proving, as in former years, one of the principle features in the line stock department. On Wednesday morning, M. Giannini received word that this herd had captured six first prizes, three seconds, three thirds, two fourths and three sweepstakes. We have now come to the conclu sion that if there had been any thing more of importance to get, Hilly would have landed it. For several year Mr. Holt has spared no expense in getting the best available stock, both in breed ing and individuality, at the head of this excellent herd, while his experience has favored his choice at each change made. It is now the universal judgment of the leading breeders of the west, that this is the leading herd of Berk shires either in this or adjoining states, a reputation of which he and his numerous friends are just ly proud. We often wonder if the average farmer and stockman fully appre ciate the value of such a herd at their very door. They certainly know that scrub stock of any kind has had its day. It has cost years of experiment and thousands of dollars to build this herd to its present perfection. Not every farmer can afford this, yet what a change, with but slight extra expense under these conditions, by placing a youngster from this famous herd each year with your own hogs. How long would it be ere your herd would surprise you? A good, smooth, even bunch of hogs always tops the market and this is the way to get them, especially when you have the very best at your door and Holt pays the freight From DcsMoines Billy will ship his herd to Lincoln for ex hibition at the state fair next, week. They have always been winners at Lincoln and no doubt will prove just as attractive this year. They will also go to To peka, St. Joe and finally the win ners will then enter in the Royal Stock Show in Kansas City. FIRE AT GARAGE Small Blaze Damaged Automobile Friday Evening There was quite an excite ment stirred up at the garage Friday evening, when one of the automobile caught fire, and for a few moments it looked like a big blaze would be the result. Charley Harkendorff came to town in his car, and finding his gasoline had about given out, ran the machine to the garage for a fresh supply. Tn tilling the tank a quantity of the fluid was spilled on the machine which caught tire from a lamp, and in a second it was a mass of flames. Guy Crook with great presence of mind, jumped into the machine and backed it out of the building, thus keep ing the llames from spreading. A tire alarm was turned in but the tire was extinguished before the department arrived. The car was badly scorched and one tire burned, but received no ser I ious damage.
