Ed was born and grew to man hood in this city and counted his friends by the entire circle of his acquaintances, for he had nc enemies. He was always an up right, industrious boy, and had been employed for years in the cigar factory in this city. About three years ago Ed’s health began to fail, and despite all efforts he could get no relief, and when death came to relieve bis suffering, to him it was a welcome visitor. Edwin P.

LARGE BUSINESS ENTERPRISE The Preston Mercantile Company a Pretentious Corporation “Tell me the character of your business men,’’ once said the late Marshal Field, “and I will tell you the future of your town.” This article is not an adver tisement. we wouldn't accept a cent for it. Rather, it is a volun tary tribute to some young busi ness men who are determined to put Preston on the map. Not long since these young fel lows, with a few of the older heads, organized a bank down there. Preston had always need ed such an institution and the welcome it received,together with the aggressive and conservative management made the bank a success at once. A member of the banking board recently spoke to the writer in the most glowing terms of this bank. And now comes Henry Zoeller, Ed Dowty, Harry Herman, the Margrave boys and several others and incorporated the Preston Mercantile Co., with a paid-up capital of $20,000, and an unlim ited capital in the confidence and respect of the entire community. This company will do a gen eral elevator, lumber, coal and mercantile business. All of its different branches are already established, but that the enter prise will prove a success goes without saying- In the mean time look for Preston to grow, for this crowd is made up of pushers, and pushers are the ones who do things. Omaha Will Be Hera All arrangements have been made and the Omaha base ball team will sure be here Wednes day afternoon- This is the league team which finished second place in the pennant race just closed, and we are sure of a fine exhibition of the national game. While our boys are not league players, here’s dollars to dough nuts, they’ll make Omaha play i ball. GER.MAN DAY THE SECOND ANNUAL CELE BRATION A CRAND SUCCESS A Large Crowd Was in Attendance and Everyone Enjoyed Themselves The second annual celebra tion by our German friend*, was even more of a success than that of last year, and the program as carried out was greatly en joyed by the large crowd in at tendance. During the forenoon the time was given to getting ready for the crowd and entertaining the early arrivals. The atternoon trains brought hundreds of visitors from sur rounding’ towns and at 8 o’clock the parade formed and marched up Stone street. It was headed by the marshal of the day, fol lowed b}T the mayor and council in gaily decorated automobiles. Then came the Hiawatha band playing their splendid music throughout the entire line of march. The floats, Columbia and Germania,were very pretty. They were occupied by Mrs. Conrad Brecht and Mrs. L’eter Kaiser, dressed to represent each country. The Falls City band followed and compared most favorably with the other in the music furnished. The members of the Deutsche Ges sellschaft made a tine showing, being there in a body, and were an important feature in the pa rade. The Kaffee Klatcli club, composed of a number of Ger man ladies, occupying a nicely decorated lloat, made a very pretty picture, while the farm ers threshing wheat in old time style, was true to life. Werner & Mosiman and George Fall stead each represented their business by decorated automo biles. Sigmund Spaeth and his German band were there, and tbeonly fault to find with them was that they did not furnish more music. John Hossack and his society for the recovery of stolen horses, brought up the rear of the very creditable pa rade. The line of inarch led to the park where the following pro gram was rendered: National Hymn - - America Address of Welcome Mayor Abbey Overture—'‘Diehter Bauer" Hiawatha Band Oration—John Mattes, Nebraska City Overture—‘ Deutsche Liecter" Hiawatha Band Address - • Hon. A. E. Gantt Kaiser Frederick March Hiawatha Band German National Hymn “Es Braust ein Iluf* In the evening there was an other parade consisting of bands illuminated floats, automobiles, etc., and the program fnr the day closed with a tine display of lireworks, after which a gen eral good time was indulged in. The day was a huge success, and those who had the affair in charge did themselves proud. NOTES It was one of the largest crowds Falls City has seen tor years. Nebraska City was well rep resented. Tne Hiawatha band was here and everyone enjoyed the excel, lent music they furnished. The street ‘•fakir’’ was very much in evidence, and their numerous booths and the bark ing of the ‘speelers, ’ gave Stone street the air of a midway. As a marshal, Peter Kaiser looked very commanding in his gay uniform. Everyone was good natured and caused the police no trouble. A PENNY SHOWER Uncle Jesse Crook Surprised or 82d Birthday I'ncle Jesse Crook was the vie* i tim of a pleasant surprise Satur day evening, perpetrated by his many relatives in thiscitv. The plans had been arranged by his daughter, Mrs- J. K. Wil hite, and all had been kept so quiet that the surprise was com plete. The victim and his wife had been persuaded to take supper at the home of their son, W- R. Crook, and in the meantime sev eral of the lacties went to his home and made ready for the guests. The flora! decorations were confined entirely to wild flowers, while the house was lighted with candles in oldfash* ioned candlesticks. Shortly after 8 o clock the un suspecting ones started for home and when they reached there, the surprise which greeted them was almost too much to bear. After a time, however. Uncle Jesse got his bearings and the most pleas ant evening of his life was the result. The time was spent in pleasant reminiscence and sing ing old time songs, while Uncle #esse told many of the experiences of his pioneer life. At an opportune time, G. J. Crook, in a few remarks, started the penny shower. Each family was requested to bring a penny for each year of their host's life, and in the final summing up, it was found taat Uncle Jesse had about all the pennies in town, there being -,000 in the pile. The recipient, tried to thank the guests, but was so overcome that the happ3’ tears flowed and words were unnecessary. A large table had been placed on the porch and a water melon feast was much enjoyed. It was indeed a pleaeant even ing and one long to be remem bered by the forty relatives pres ent.

ON THE DIAMOND FALLS CITY MAKES FINE SHOW ING DURING THE WEEK Win Three Out of Four Games Played with Horton and Everest HORTON-FALLS CITY Those who witnessed the ball games in Hiawatha last, week, say they were by far the best games played by onr boys this season. Everyone played professional ball, and the large crowd that went over from this place were well re paid for their trip. The following account of Thurs days game taken from the Hiawa tha World, will show you how it happened: “The Falls City baseball teasers cnyie down Thursday afternoon and went out to the ball park. The Horton Star soon began to fall and at the end of the nine innings of hard base ball playing they were all down except Harry Page, who went around the hori 1 zon for a home run in the ninth, after it looked like a shut out. Foster, the first man up for Falls City, got a hit, but Poteet who followed, struck into a double, spoiling the chance to score. Par ker, for Horton, did the teg nning of the double pet by quickly field ing to Chappie, who doubled to Page. In their half Horton pop ped up a little fly and Kelsey, the Irish pitcher for Falls City struck out two. FaiiB City did their stunt in the second when Sears got a life on Cobbs’ error. Foeh linger put a liner down to first but Page gobbled it up. Ileucock got a fielders choice and then swiped one with Foehliuger on third. Kelsey, the Irish slab artist, saw the pinch and sent a grounder down between short and second that sounded like the tear ing of a. mile of canvas. Two dents in the pan showed for the Brewers and that was all they needed. Kelsey was clearly the star for Falls City, striking out an even dozen Horton players and winning the game by his ground hit. Heck for Falls City made a wonderful catch, nabbing Parker, who was stealing second, thus keeping Horton from scoring in the seventh. Page’s homer in the ninth was the saving feature of the game, scoriug Horton's only run. Falls City.0 20000002 Horton.0000000 0 1 Batteries,Kelsey and Poteet ;Bark tey and Burke. Umpire, A. Hut chinson of Robinson.” Friday’s game was equally ns good, but our boys were a little stingy and did not allow Horton to even look at home plate. The score for the secoud game was it to 0. Horton had a fine bunch of players but were just a little out classed. EVEREST-FALLS CITY The game on Tuesday after noon with Everest and Falls City as opponents, was about the worst mixture of good and bad ball playing our fans have wit nessed in some time. Heacock pitched winning ball, striking out eight men and allowing but four hits. The twirler for Everest ! did not do nearl) such good work ! but he had the support. The first and second innings were good, but in the third Ever* est succeeded, through a bunch of errors and a home run, to score three men and there was nothing more doing until the seventh, when by another bunch of errors, mingled with a good display of ■ boy play on the part of our boys, Everest added four more to their credit, making the score 7 to 0. This stopped ihe fun for the visitors as our boys finally decid* Continued on Eighth page ( THEATER SEASON AT HAND The Gehling Will Open on Thurs day Night Of Next Week “Down Vermont Way” is the attraction secured by Manager Gehling for the opening of bis popular play house on Thursday night of next week, September 24. The attraction is one of the best dramas touring this season and no doubt will be greeted by a large, crowd.

While the building inspector, during his re cent visit to the city pronounced the Gelding far above the average in point of safety in case of fire, still these few changes have been made in order to make it doubly secure and that none may feel in the least way timid about entenug Mr. Gelding lias many' fine at tractions booked for the season and our theater goers may look for a pleasant winter along this line.
