There never was a better time to
cut weeds than now; right now.
One weather prophet predicts frost
in six weeks. Here’s hoping lie is
The Tribune will keep “open
house” through Chautauqua week. A
welcome awaits pa, ma, and the kids.
According to tin1 Railroad Maga
zine, there are over a million rail
road men in the lMilted States who
are total abstainers.

And now that wonderful country,
Alaska,comes to the front with a sup
ply of coal that knocks the theory of
a future coal famine Into smither
eens. Alaska was not a bad invest
ment, after all,though at the time the
puurchase was made, by some, it
was concidered a huge Joke.
Falls City welcomes the visitors to
the annual chautauqun. No pains or
expellee inis been spared to secuure
attractions of world-wide reputation,
and those who come from a distance,
and those who tarry with us through
the whole week of entertainment will
be amply repaid for their efforts.
G. S. Christy, of Nemaha county,
an authority upon fruit crop condition
estimates the pcucli yield of this sec
tion of the state, at about one-tenth
of a normal crop. Go slow with those
peach preserves made from last
year's peaches -open only when the
presiding elder is with you, or the
bishop; or upon the occasion of a
mother-in-law's first visit.
Of course the high waters did some
damage in Richardson county, but not
one of the losers have time to grieve
over it. Where it is possible the
overflowed lands will yet be made
to yield, and the final harvest will
see a plenteous acreage and a satis
fied farmer. It takes more than the
turbulent Nebraska to affect that
v grand average that Richardson county
is famous for.
Falls City has been chosen as a
terminal point by the Missouri Pacific
railway company, which fact seems
to disturb some of the adjacent vil
lages that from time to time have
‘‘had hopes,” and the spirit of “sour
grapes” shine forth from the columns
of various disgruntled local journals.
It must be understood that the M. P.
Is to build and 18-stall round house
in Falls City—a brick affair if you
please—one that will bear no resem
blance to the make shifts that have
answered temporary in other towns.
The M. P., is coming to Falls City to
stay, and are building for the future j
as well as the present. After all
it was atnere matter of location—

And it is necessary to add thut the

Don't confound the Falls City chau
taucpia with small gatherings that list

under the name of “chautauqtui.”
Ours is a real chautauquua. Twenty

THE THAW WOMAN.
A fool story was printed in a New
York papers that Mrs. Evelyn Thaw
lately appeared at the WaldorfAstorla
and that, while silting in the lobby,
!x r pet snake esraped, causing a
commotion. The story was telegraph
ed all over the country. If we were
llic editor of a big paper and a New
York correspondent shoo'd' telegraph
such a story as that, we would dis
charge him. And how the papers
do love to advertise the Waldorf
Astoria, as though all the jays are
dying to stop there, and see the
noted guests, and fee the noted wait
ers. So far as we are concerned,
we’d rather eat a meal at home than
at the Waldorf-Astoria. Wo country
people do not think half as much of
New York as New York people think
we do. Out in the country, we are
much more prosperous, sane and con
tent than New York people think we
are. Why should Evelyn Thaw he
kept in the lime light? She was
never prominent except as the mis
tress of tough men. She was on the
stage, tint not beenuse of talent; she
had nothing to recommend her except
a pretty face and shapely legs. She
was the cause of -a brutal murder.
Why should such a woman be ex
ploited In the papers? Why not
drop this Thaw woman, and exploit
worthy girls?—E. W. Howe.
