Substantial Change Taking Place In
The Building.
P' ler liaeakos, proprietor of the
Candy Kitchen, is this week having
tin partitions taken out which pre
viously separated his store from
1’ S lleucocU A- Son’s office, and
otherwise making more room for
the increased business, which he lias
Mr. liaeakos lias a new soda foun
tain which lie will install as soon as
the building is ready, and it is one
that would do an Omaha of Kansas
City store a credit to own.
When all changes have taken place
Hie Candy Ritcnen will occupy al
most three times the room it has
Rest Room.
The plans for the new Christian
church under consideration include
a rest room. A place always open
and provided witli necessary conven
iences such as toilet, heat, light,
etc., and free to till. This is a very
laudable project and one which
ought to receive the hearty endorse
ment of every citizen of Falls
The question in our mind is. why
leave this important mutter to any
one church? Why not make it a
city feature and lit il be supported
by the entire city. That such a
place is needed, there can be no
question. Country patrons when in
town have no place to stay over. No
privacy, no comforts whatsoever.
Scarcely so much as the common
toilet necessities The only place for
the public to wait over in town at
present are to he found in the bus
iiiesa places, where quiet and priva
cy are entirely out of the question.
A decent regard for the comfort
of tin people, who come to town,
who do business here, requires that
something be done to make their
stay in town agreeable and as com
fortable as possible. This is a mat
j ter for the Commercial club to eon
| aider at once.
One of the Most Beneficial Acqui
sitions that Could Be Se
cured for Falls City.
There is now a movement on foot
among the business men of the city
to organize and conduc t a big school.
No institution that we can think of
could tie of more value to our growing
city than a big tip-lo date institution
of learning,
There is no reason why. if managed
properly, we cannot eventually bring
hundreds of pupils annually from tho
surrounding territory. Many e-ith s
smaller than ours and located less
favorably have Schools with an an
nual allcnditiici of from !*0<> to UOOO
pupil: Why ran we not support
suc h tt sc hool, or rather let such n
school help support us? Untold lien
efits aside from the- financial gain
would lie derived from a good school.
The Tribune is always ready to
help liocitd a * proposition of this
kind, and we hope every liusirieHS
man and every parent will see the:
need of pushing this project to real
The funeral serv ices nvt r the hotly
