WM—B—sa=r:=. ==a—— A GOOD BALL TEAM Why Can t Falls City Support a Ball Team? Why not have a good ball team? There isn’t much doing in Falls City in the amusement line, anyway. Of course we can go fishing in the Nemaha and Muddy, but as John J- Ingals would say, fishing in the Nemaha and Muddy is an irredescent dream. The ball team as constituted isn’t the kind we should have,and we won’t get the right kind until somebody goes down in his pocket or pockets and digs. We ought to hire a good short stop, pitcher and third baseman; then put Clarence Heck on second, Cornell and Sears in the outfield with Green and go after the best of them. Humboldt supported a salaried team; Auburn is now supporting one. What’s the matter with Falls City? It takes something besides talk, however, to make such, dreams come true. The Tribune doesn’t ask to be let off with talk. LIBRARY BOARD MEETS The Annual Report was Read and Accepted The library board met at the library Tuesday evening. The librarian’s report for February, March, April and May were read and accepted. The usual bills were allowed. As this was the meeting at which the annual re ports were due, they were read and ordered published. The li brarian’s report show’s an increase of 1101 volumes in circulation oyer last pear. Twenty-nine per cent of the books loaned were non-fiction. The magazine list for the com ing year was considered and prac tically the same list as the one now' on file was re-ordered. The book committee arranged for reg ular meetings to be held on the last Tuesday of each month to consider lists of new books. The first regular meeting will be on June 28. The board adjourned to meet the first Tuesday in July.

His injuries at first was not considered to be very alarming but I)r. Kerr examined him care fully and discovered his ankle to be dislocated and his should er blade to be fractured, beside being bruised quite badly. Jack certainly had a very nar row escape. At this writing lie is getting along nicely. Thrown By a Horse The little twelve year old son of Jerry Richards was out for a horseback ride Sunday after noon, and when just north of Mrs. T. P.

TUB IK N\MKS KNOWN “We only know they fought and died, and o'er their graves the wind has sighed, for many a long, slow-looted year; and win ter's snow has drifted here; and in the dawning warmth of spring the joyous birds came here to sing! we only know that rest is sweet to weary hearts and toiling feet, and they who sleep beneath the sod gave all they had to give to God. And in their radiance of the Throne, their names are known their names arc known! We know not from what homes they came; we cannot guess their dreams of fame; but lamps for them did vainly burn, and moth ers waited for their return, and listened at some cottage door, for steps that sounded never more; and loving eyes grew dim with tears, and hearts grew old with grief of years. And here they sleep, as they have slept, since legions o’er the country swept; where mothers wait before the Throne, their names are known their names are known.—Walt Mason. Will be Treated at Lincoln T. Mosier, who has been in very poor health for some time, and who suffers from epilepsy, was taken to Lincoln for treat ment.

Well, in some re spects there is some truth in it. If Rulo has a bad name it is more on account of drinking to excess than on account of the crimes committed. Hut, our present town board, of whom Rulo is justly proud, seem to be resolved to move this evil from our midst and re store, in this point, the good name of the town. Hut, in spite of this one deploring evil, there is a mighty good set of people in this town near the Missouri river. The town has a good public school, an excellent stall' of teachers, both of which we are proud. Also two tine churches, a Methodist and a Catholic. The Catholics also have a school oi their own, conducted by the Sisters of the Most Precious Blood. There are three Sisters, one attends to the household duties and looks, in a motherly way after the innerman of the Sisters and boarders, and the other two teach. The two who teach the children to do won. dertul things just think of only two teachers to teach and six pupils received a diploma in the Palmer system of hand writing, and quite a number, in eluding the ones named: Leslie Cronin, Agnes Kanaly, Esther Boehme, Eliza Mahan, Frances Pierce and Anna lieinke, re Iceived a diploma from County Superintendent Oliver lor fin ishing the eighth grade. Besides this we have quite a number of girls who are musi cians. well versed in music and of the theatrical ability of the children at the Catholic school. Now, who will say that Rulo has nothing to boast of! *#* Base Ball Spirit Auburn is a great ball town. One of our local sports attend ed a game at that place last week and tells us, that on ;i large bill board at the ball ground, are signs that read like thi-: “For a home run you may have a tine suit of clothes at my store. A three base run gives you the choice af all my neck ties. A two base run and you are entitled to a line stick pin.” The board lias been placed there by one of their clothing men.
