John Stockton's House in the East
Part of Town Wns Badly
Damaged by Fire
The home of John Stockton i
in the east part of town, Wednes'j
day morning was the scene of!
one of the worst tires this city
has had for some time. The (am
ilv had only been up a short time]
when Clara went out of doors and |
on returning told tier parents she j
believed the house was on lire. 1
They looked, but failed to lind a I
blaze, but on going up stairs j
found the roof to be on fire.
'I'lie tire department was called i
and in a short time the lire was!
extinguished. The second storv
of the house was nearly all burned 1
and the water ran through and ;
ruined the plaster and all the:
lower rooms. The furniture was
all saved with very few scratches
and rugs were all taken out.
It is a big loss for them. The 1
house was insured for$l,500. The
family were unable to find a house
to move in, so they will store their
goods and stay at the home of
Mrs. Margaret Maddox until the
house can be rebuilt, plastered
and papered.
The origin of the tire is not
known, but it is supposed that it
was caused from a defective flue.
Many, who helped fight the
fire say there is no comparison in
the pressure of the new water
plant to that of the old one. This
fact makes it encouraging to the
fire boys who have always been
willing but had nothing to work
"With Cor several years the
power has not been sufficient to
extinguish a blaze of any conse
Push This Enterprise
Do you remember what hap
pened last year? Falls City won
the county and South-Eastern
Nebraska Field Meets. The
South-Eastern Nebraska Meet
was held at Falls City. This
town is centrally located and
has better accommodations than
any other town in the league.
Now if the students and citizens
want the meet here, now is the
time to work. The field meets
are a source of enjoyment to the
citizens and a benefit to the stu
dent. Does not the welfare of
your boy interest you enough to
push this enterprise? Were you
not fully repaid last year? Falls
City has been t-uccessful ior the
last two years in both the county
and South-Eastern Meet. Should
she succeed in these meets this
year she will have won three
years in succession, which en
tities her. under the athletic
rules, to hold these trophies for
ever. Orange and Black.

Prof Clark of Chicago Gave a
Dramatic Recital of The
Popular Play
l’rof. S. II. Clark of the Chicago
University gave a dramatic read
ing of the popular play “A Ser
vant in the House,” at the Bap
tist church on Monday evening
Mr- Clark had been brought her;
by the City Federation of Wo
men's clubs, and it was due to th*
elTorts of this organization’s mert: •
bers that he was greeted by 1
large crowd- lOvery person in
the audience enjoyed the reading
from the first, for the Professor
entered into it with an enthus *
asm and earnestness which holds
his hearers in rapt interest
throughout- He is equipped with
a splendid voice capable of modu -
lation at bis will, a pleasing per
sonalityand an intelligence which
interprets the finer shades of
meaning in the lines spoken. The
sweet, winsome, childish charai •
ter of Mary was portrayed with
as much truth as the worldly*
contemptible Bishop of Lanca
shire; the strong, rugged one ot
Robert; or Manson, the compel*
ling, moving character in the
whole theme, whose religion is
summed up in these words, *'I
love (Jod and all my brothers-”
Those who were fortunate
enough to hear Prof. Clark con -
sider the evening well spent, and
much credit is due the enterpris
ing women, who brought him
here- It is a sad commentary on
the men of Falls City that the
audience was largely women- ft
makes one wonder “Whv ”’
