The Falls City tribune. (Falls City, Neb.) 1904-191?, August 28, 1908, Image 3
NOW AND THEN It lias been said, and rightly, that the atmosphere of a home, the room empty of all but its furnishings, silently proclaims the character of its inhabitant. A tew volumes, well selected, a few pictures of real artistic merit, simple though they may be, be speak to the observer, cultuie and refinement as plainly as crowded shelves indiscriminately filled disclose the immitator or the untutored. It is as equally true that the surroundings stamp the individ ual, not only the immediate sur roundings, but the section of country in which he lives, stamps liini with its own mark, recogniz able by the keen observer. In a recent visit to the east, the writer found hourly demon strations of tlie above statement, for although we are one people, one nation under one flag, we are nevertheless divided into sections, with sectional interests, sectional tastes, and oddest of all, a sec tional language- Sectional in terests were plainly shown when every clerk, street car conductor, or vendor of any sort, would ap oligize, if in changing money he had to give more than a dollar in silver and a silver dollar is an al most unknown piece of money. It certainly is not in circulation only as the west carries it east. During a month’s stay in that section, the only silver I saw I had in my own purse. To enjoy the sectional lan guage one need stay but a day in Atlantic City and listen, for this beautiful and popular resort, standing as it does, on the coast of the big, solemn ocean, visited by thousands of people, is a city of all nations, all sections and all people. A fact fully appreciated even by the news boys, for from every corner on the famous “Board Walk’’ can be heard, “Name your town, I have your papers.” On hearing that one beautiful evening, when we had settled ourselves to watch the restless ocean under a placid moon, and the restless people as well, a certain little Nebraska boy hurried ofT to purchase a pa per. He soon returned and with just a touch or impatience in his voice remarked, “I asked for a Falls City Tribune and all I could get was a Lincoln paper. ” Little Nebraska was disappointed and he was certain that newsboy had failed to appreciate the possibili i ties of his vocation, for he said, “It the State Journal is worth 15 cents the Tribune is worth a quarter. ’ By using one’s eyes and ears at such a place, there is certain fac iuation in selecting the real from the false and the genuine from the counterfeit. And listen, can you not tell the Philadelphian who goes “daown t’ Atlantic” from shop, bank or rush of busi ness, on Saturday, to enjoy the invigorating air. one day out of every week, and the Bostonian who “cannt” breakfast on a Sun day morning without his baked beans and brown bread: and the one from “Baltimore” or “Yohk State” who has the tune and ac cent on one who is monarch of all he surveys and has pre-empted all in sight, even the blue sky above him Ana wnen Knoae isiana wun nasal tones enlarges upon the de light of a “clayrn bake,” one from the interior smiles at the Yankee drawl marking the New England er, with just a shade of difference for each state, even within the narrov/ limits of little Rhode Is land is an accent or twang heard no place else. Dignified, stately Maine pat iently endorses Chicagoians gush ing effusion upon the “be-au-ti ful” oceaii that is “simply out of sight’’ and being painfully ignor ant as to Chicago’s colloquialism. Maine exclaims “the idear,” for to him the ocean is very much in sight. And Kentucky, looking on, re marks “that is the bluest ‘waiali’ evah I saw" and Virginia with a softening of her “a’s” agrees. The Californian wagers “two bits’’ against a Washingtonians “quarter «f a dollah” that Long Beach is a more popular resort than Atlantic City and Missouri being called in to settle the dis pute, says she has never been out “that away,’’ will have to vote for Atlantic City. Thus it goes, and to the interested listener it becomes a pleasant pastime to speculate on one’s locality from bis accent. Now an then we met one from Nebraska, dear, fitful Nebraska, that is either wet or dry, hot or cold as the mood strikes her, l?ut evening it all up in the long run, until the is just about right—and it was like an occasional breeze from the west to heaf one speak, not with an accent “wild and Model “10" BUICK CARS Represent.the highest possible value.

But with all the lamination of the east with its natural beauty and things that belong to the years of yesterday, with its crowds and evidences of wealth, and all these will charm for a time, the best part was in turn ing westward to a land with no yesterday but with energetic peo ple feeling today with events that make history turning west ward to the southeastern portion of Nebraska that held the spot dearest of all on earth . the home block beautiful. NEED NOT SlMnve. The little count was trying to make a good impression. “Ah,” he whispered, suavely, “I should like to take you coaching through our castle grounds. I am an expert handler of the ribbons.” The sensible heiress smiled. ‘■Indeed!” she replied, sweetly. “How lucky!” “Lucky P” “Yes, if you don’t succeed in find ing a rich wife you can easily obtain a position at some ribbon counter.” GOOD SUGGESTIONS. Following is from an exchange: “Beware of theologians who have no sense of mirth; they arc not alto gether human.” “Keep your chin up.” “Don’t take your troubles to bed with you; hang them on a chair with your trousers or drop them into a glass of water with your teeth.” SYMPATHETIC. “I am sure I do not know what will become of Bessie,” said Bessie’s mamma. “She came home from Sunday school yesterday crying. When T asked her what she was cry ing about she said f “ ‘Because poor Eve never had any mamma.’ ” AT BRIDGE. Miss Bridge Fiend—You ought to be able to write fine comedies, Mr. Post.
