The Falls City Tribune. *^r Vol. V FALLS CITY, NEBRASKA, FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 25, 1908. Number 36 SOCIETY NOTES AS TIVAS TOLD TO OUR SO CIETY EDITOR Various Kinds of Entertainment by Individuals, Lodges, Clubs, Churches, Etc The Presbyterian Juniors were delightfully entertained last Sat urday afternoon at the home of Helen Whitford. It was also Helen’s birthday. Over fifty were in attendance. Mrs. I. C. Maust entertained the boys of her Sunday school class one evening last week. The time was spent in true boy style. A watermelon feast was provided by the hostess, which made the evening’s enjoyment perfect. The Sunny- Slope kensington met with Mrs. Jesse Deaton last Wednesday. Dainty- refreshments were served and a good time en joyed by all. The next meeting will be with Misses Daisy and Mollie Stewart, Wednesday Sept. 30th. Sorosis met with Mrs. George Schock as hostess, Wednesday afternoon. A paper on Minerals was read by Mrs. Ewalt, and she had a collection of pictures to il lustrate her subject. Mrs. Banks read an article on “Turkish Wo men in a Peaceful Crusade for Freedom.’’ During the social half hour, refreshments were served. The club will meet Oct. 14, with Mrs. E. Falloon. On Tuesday evening the Re bekahs celebrated the 57th anni versary- of that order by enter taining the Odd Fellows and their families in roval style. A fine musical program was render ed,and Rev.R. Cooper Bailey,Ph. D., gave a very interesting histo ry of the order. The evening was then given oyer to a general social time. A .watermelon feast was one of the principle features of the evening, to which all did ample justice. The Odd Fellows feel indebted to the Rebekahs for such a pleasant time. One of the really pleasant events of the week, was the wed ding in high life at the Davis home in this city last Friday ev ening, when “Earl E- Wedd” and “Eloise Hope” were united in m a rri age. “Parson Fecken Looper. Ph. D.,” performed the ceremony. At the appointed time the happy young couple, with their attendants, entered the car lo. as the strains of “America” were being played by one of the guests, and the solem words were spoken. After congratulations the guests partook of an elabor ate supper consisting of red lem onade, weinerwurst, rye bread and the bride’s cake. The cos tumes were beautiful and deserve special mention, but space forbids. The presents were many and co9tly(?) In justice to all we will say that the affair was a bur lesque, but was most enjoyable and will long be remembered by the guests. The Friends in Council met with the Misses Cleaver, Friday, evening and enjoyed a delightful session. Roll call was answered to by Ed Howe's Globe Sights, and caused great amusement. The program throughout was fine- The club having decided to take up the study of Shakes peare, for the coming year, sev eral interesting papers were read by the different members on Shakespeare and his works. Miss Helen Martin, w’ho was a guest of the club, favored them with two vocal selections, “Who is Sylvia" and “Hark, Hark, the Lark,’’the words being by Shake speare and the music by Schu bert. Miss Alice Cleaver, ac companied by her sister. Mis? Florence, gave several of Schu bert's violin selections, while Miss Sallie Schoenheit gave a Schubert piano selection. After the pro 1 gram an eiegent lunch was serv ed and the club adjourned to meet in two weeks with Mrs. Paul Greenwald. Mrs. JIarrv Pence was also a guest on this occasion. Mrs. Martin Kanaly was the victim of a pleasant surprise on Tuesday evening, perpetrated by the many friends as a farewell be fore leaving for her new home in South Dakota. As prearranged, Mrs. Kanaly had been invited to go riding, and when she returned it was to find her home occupied by about thirty ladies. The sur prise was complete and so great as to almost overwhelm the vic tim, but she proved herself ei|iial to the occasion and made all feel their welcome. At an opportune time, Mrs- W. H. Kerr, on behalf ot the guests, presented Mrs Kanaly with a handsome mantle clock, as a slight token of their high esteem. She spoke with feeling of the separation about to take place, and of the many silent messages of love and cheer which the constant tick of the clock was intended to convey to her in her western home, Mrs. Kanaly endeavored to thank her friends, but it was a silent min gling of tears which was more eloquent than words- The even ing was then given to a general good time, and after partaking of nice refreshments, the guests departed for their several homes, each wishing their hostess a hap py life in her new home. A GOOD WOMAN GOME Mrs. Edward Morrison is One of Death's Victims This Week Mrs. Edward Morrison died at her home, six miles southwest of Falls City, on Saturday, Septem ber 19, 1908, aged 36 years, 3 months and 2 days. Why death should claim one so much needed in this world, and when in the prime of life, is one of the mysteries which can only be made known in the future. Leaving as she did. a loving hus band and family of little ones, who just now require a mother’s care and guidance, the vacancy thus caused is one which can nev er be filled. Just five weeks ago Mr. and Mrs. Morrison were called upon to give up their baby, jtnd at that time the mother contracted rheumatism and has been a great sufferer since, death being caused by the disease going to the heart Just seventeen years ago, Lin me Eakins became the happy bride of Edward Morrison. To this union seven children were born, of the six living, the oldest is but 16 and the youngest 6. She had always been a faithful wife and loving mother, unselfish to a fault and with no thought save for her family, and the grief which they now experience can only be lessoned by time. The funeral service was held Monday afternoon from the fam ily home, conducted by the Bretli I ren minister of Morrill. Kas., and was largely attended by the | sorrowing: friends and neighbors, j Interment was made in the Steele cemetery. To the breaved ones the Tri bune joins with many in extend ing deepest sympathy. Big Apples Wm. Thompson on Saturday I sent to this office one of the I largest apples we have seen in ! many a year. It is perfect in form and weigs seventeen ounces. Mr. Thompson does not know the name of the variety, and the ap ple buyers do not know, but it is certainly fine. BADLY INJURED BENNY WERNER RECEIVES SER IOUS INJURIES IN A RUN-AWAY ! Horse Frightened by Automobile is Cause of the Little Boy's Serious Accident Tuesday afternoon about 5 o’clock, Bennv Werner, the 14 year old son of Ernest Werner, accompanied by his brother Hen ry and Harold Miller, were driv ing along Wilson street, near the ball park, when their horse be came frightened at an automo bile. In the runaway which fob lowed, the right shaft of the buggy dropped and the vehicle was overturned and the occupants thrown out. Harold and Henry escaped with only a few scratches, but when they reached their com rade, he was found unconscious and badly bruised about the head. He was taken to his home and Ur. Boose summoned. At first it was feared the injuries might prove fatal as the little fellow did not regain consciousness until the following morning. At this time however, it is thought there will be no serious results, and while he will be confined to the home for some time, it is hoped there will soon be a complete re covery. GONE TO HIS REWARD H. W. Wolff Answers Summons Friday Morning H. W. Wolff died at his home in this city Friday, September 18, 190B, aged 72 years, 1 month and 12 days. Deceased had always enjoyed the very best of health until last February, when be had a severe attack of the grip, the same leaving him in a some what. weakened condition, but still able to attend to his duties until a week prior to his death, when he began to complain and was forced to take to his bed, suffering untold agonies from the effects of an abcess on the brain, which was the direct cause of his death. Mr. Wolff was born in Ger many, coming to this country when a boy about 10 years of age, locating in Wisconsin, where lie grew to manhood. He was married forty-five years ago to Miss Bridget Golster in Black River Falls, Wisconsin. To this union nine children were born, two ol them preceeding him to the great beyond. Be sides his widow there are seven children, all of whom were with him at the last. They are Mrs. Geo.

PLAY FAST BALL THE LEAGUERS WIN IN A 2 TO 0 GAME I '* Results of Other Games Played By Falls City Boys During the Past Week I Well, Omaha has been here and gone, taking with them two nice scores and leaving to our boys nine big goose eggs as a souvenir of the day. It wasn’t hardly a fair exchange, but the big crowd was satisfied and more firmly convinced than ever that we have a tine bunch of ball players. The visitors scored in the first and again in the fourth, and that’s all they did do. The only real chance we had for scoring was in the seventh when Tommy Poteet put on one of his stunts and made a long drive for third, and then—well he didn’t receive the proper coaching and they caught him at the home plate. It was an awful disappoihtment,but that’s base ball. The visitors made live hits off ol Kelsey, while the colts found the leaguer for four good ones. The game was replete with double plays on both sides, while the fielding was of the best. Heck, Ed. Poteet, Tom Poteet and Kelsey each have a hit to their credit and are justly proud. Talk about fast ball. The game was played in one hour and ten minutes, and that is about as fast as any of them can go.1 There was a good crowd in attendance and all were glad to be there, and even if we did lose we are proud of our boys and the showing they made. Score by innings: Omaha.1 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 0 Falls City.. . .0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 Umpire—George Segrist. Time of g-ame, one hour and ten minutes. Poteet, Kelsey, Heck, Heacock and Foehlinger went to Robinson, Kas., Saturday, where the three former figured in the line up of the Robinson-Severence game. Heck played third for Severance and Poteet in his usual position for jRobinson. while Kelsey was on second. It was a great game so they say, resulting in a score of 11 to 0 in favor of Robinson. Poteet never will forgive Heck for throwing him out at home in that mean way. The Colts played a return game with Everest at that place on Sunday, and played one of their star games, shutting Everest out in a score of 2 to 0. Kelsey pitched the game of his life, al lowing but one scratch hit in the ninth inning. Everest played (good ball, too, and altogether it was a line exhibition, but they | will have to admit that our boys are just a little bit the best play I ers. _ PERKINS SENTENCED Gets Two Years in Penitentiary for Bnrglary Bill Perkins, who has been in I jail for some tune awaiting trial on the charge of burglary, ap peared in court Tuesday and plead guilty. He was sentenced by Judge Paper to two years in the penitentiary. His partner in the crime, Charley Prencby, will be tried on the same charge in this term of court. j This is Jnot the first offense ; for Perkins, as he has done time ! before and seems rather proud ! of the fact. EUGEN£ OPELT DEAD Dies on Monday in Hospital In Lin coln The following was taken from the Lincoln Journal of Tuesday. Eugene will be remembered by many ol our citizens, lie with his parents having lived here for some time a number of years ago, at which time, his father, Joe Opelt, was landlord of the Union House. “Eugene Opelt, son of Mrs. Joseph Opelt, died of dropsy at 1 o’clock yesterday afternoon at St. Elizabeth’s hospital at the age of forty-one years. He will be buried at 2;510 Wednesday afternoon from the Walton Roberts chapel on north Elev enth street. Mr. Opelt had been living in Omaha for several years, but was brought to Lin celn about five weeks ago. He was unmarried and leaves one brother, (’lyde Opelt of Denver, besides his mother, who lives at 1035 J street, this city. The Opelt family were among the pioneers of Nebraska and tvven ty or more years ago were the most prominent hotel keepers in Lincoln. Mr. Opelt died about nine years ago, and the family have since been scat tered.” A HAPPY GATHERING N. B. Judd and Wife Attend Home Coming in Illinois N. B. Judd and wife return, ed last Friday from Wenona, 111., where they had been to at tend a Judd home coming, and they report the time of their life. There were ninety-two present at the gathering, all Judds and their decendants, and at the ele gant dinner prepared, eighty were seated at one time. The oldest one present was a lady 95 years of age, while the com bined age of tne eight oldest was 590. Beside the home com ing celebration, the guests had the pleasure of attending the twenty-fifth wedding anniver sary of one of the relatives. Mr. Judd informs us that among the number, there were many he had never met, while there were others he had not seen for forty years, but there were no strangers, as it was one huge family. He also says that while it is dry and dusty here, it is noth ing to be compared to Illinois, and Falls City looked mighty good to them when they got back home. German Day A great crowd attended the German day celebration at Falls City. The First Regiment band was the feature of the day but disappointed the people by not giving an evening concert in the band stand. The Banda Rossa wouldn't do that—and our boys must always be generous with their music. They generally are and the Falls City friends feel bad because they cut out the con cert. Well, sometime the band will make good for the omission. The boys were making for a train which happened to be late but they didn't know’ it. Had the Falls City managers looked up the train a concert would have been had. The floats, parade and fireworks were excellent. It was a proud time for marshal of the day, Peter Kaiser. Everest defeated Falls City at base ball 7-0. Up to the last half of the eight inning the score was 7 0 in favor of Everest. Then the Falls City crowd and the umpire gave Everest the worst of it and came very nearly winning the game, getting in six runs in the last i half of the eight inning. But 1 the robbers were foiled by Provi dence and the Cood Young Men from Everest were spared.—Hia watha World.
