permit the possibility of the importa

Has Falls City ever been blessed
with an overflow of such citizenship?
No, but the Lord blessed her when
placing the townsite in the best part
of the best county in the state of N£
biaska, and what she is today is larg
ly due to this fact. There has nev
er been a concentrated effort toward
public improvement—every move of
that nature has been with more or
less siriff, and yet we have grown.
Had we been blessed with a few loy
al home boosters that were willing to
give the glad hand to the stranger
that entered our gate and tell him
this is a good town to locate in, we
would certainly have seen a different
town than the Kails City of today.

ferent industries we might, mention
would not do well In our midst—and

Kalis City today has the best op
portunity ever presented to make her
self felt in the commercial world. No
town on tin* globe is surrounded by
a better farming community; our ship
ping facilities are good, we have a
sightly location and plenty of wealth
to accomplish any desired end in a
public way. As was said to the young
man of old,“one tiling thou lackest."

his continuance in office.
There.' are times when it becomes

machine to do the work. The vote
from both i’.aradas would show that
the democratic machine was put in ex
