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
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.
The Annual Report was Read and
The library board met at the
library Tuesday evening. The
librarian’s report for February,

and ordered published. The li
brarian’s report show’s an increase
of 1101 volumes in circulation

cent of the books loaned were
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

to meet the first Tuesday in July.

Jellison and John Shuman were

When they first began decorat

“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

Rulo Has Many Things of Which
She Can Boast
To The Tribune: Rulo has
! the name of being a rather
tough town. 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
The town has a good public
school, an excellent stall' of
teachers, both of which we are
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! *#*
