Tribune Publishing Company,
Falls City, Nebraska,
As a "wayfarer" whose earliest recollections are of Rulo, where my
father with his family lived for a time in 1866-7,. his residence being
continued in Richardson -ounty, near Falls City, for several years there
after, I am greatly interested in the "Reminiscences of a Wayfarer" now
being published in The Tribune.
The pleasing style of the writer in leading up to and weaving his
fa-ts into a story impresses me with the thought that if he has ever fol
lowed any other vocation, he has missel his calling. He is -ertainly
to • . ; i graph! • history of Ri 'har s n u unty, an i s
, hi story would be of unusual value as the record of an important part of
our great state, I trust that his reminiscences may be extended to -over a
re -ital of every important event and step of progress, in and by the county
up to the present time.
It is needless to say that I shall each week eagerly look forward
to a perusal of this feature of your paper.
Wishing The Tribune the greatest success, and with highest regards
to its publishers, I am, Sincerely yours,
(Signed), W. H. HARRISON.

Lincoln Badly Defeat by
Falls City Boys
The Wesleyan Fniversity bas
ket ball team of Lincoln met the
real thing when it encountered the
local team last Friday night. The
game was certainly a (lately and
the way thw boys went into it kept
the interest at fever heat during
its entire progress. The play was
inclined to be a little rough at
times and among the souvenirs of
the encounter was a bloody nose,
and a black eye. The collegians
expected an easy thing and didn’t
wake up until the local hoys pull
ed off some plays that wete
screamers. Then t h e cry of
“hurry tip" from their captain
spurred them to desperate action
but to no avail for when the game
ended the referee announced 27 to
15 in favor of Falls City. All the
boys played magnificently especi
ally Reavis and Kanaly, Reavis
scored 22 of the 27 points his'team

DEATHS REPORTED TO US
TWO UNEXPECTED DEATHS IN
During the Week the Cold Hanl
of Death Takes From Three
Homes the Mother
Mrs.Pink Belli' Prichard after
an illness covering only o n e
week died at her home north of
town Wednesday morning. She
was a victim of blood poison
and her suffering was intense
and all that doctors and friends
could do was done but she rap
idly grew worse.
This young woman whose
death has made necessary the
preparation ot this sketch waa
born ill) years ago in Cass court,
ty, Illinois. She came to this
county 2a years ago and on Dec.
Bo, 1*117, she was married to
George Prichard. To this union
two sons Harry and Guy were
born, one is lo and the other
s years old. Besides a husband
and two sons she leaves a father,
.1.8. Bloomer of Mario, Okla ,
and a sister, Mrs. Fanny Guinn.
We can ill afford to lose a
woman like Mrs. Prichard. Ti n
true extent of the loss is one of
those things which cannot be
measured by any huinan system
of computation. It is enough
for us to know that God in his
great wisdom has seen tit to re
move her from our midst and
call her to her reward.
The husband and two sons,
who survive her have no lack
of sympathy. Their sorrow is
great and those who mourn with
them are many and are sorry be
cause they can tind no words
that bring comfort or consolta
tion to the bereaved ones.
The funeral will be held today
at 1:30 p. m. from the residence
and interment made in Steelt
Mrs. Louise Steinbrink who
lives in the north ’part of town
underwent an operation f o r
strangulated hernia at the home
of her daughter Mrs. Fred Fehr

the operation tine and it then
looked like there was no reason
why she could not recover but
she was taken worse and died
Wednesday morning. She leaves
to mourn the death of mother
two children, Mrs. Fred Fehr
and Frank Steinbrink both of
this city. Her husband pre
ceded her to the grave about 15
year» ago. The deceased was
