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 established. 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 previously. 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 City. 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. [MAY SECURE A BIG SCHOOL AN IMPORTANT MOVEMENT ON FOOT TO THAT END. 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 ization Yateb. The funeral serv ices nvt r the hotly of Mrs Kiln Yiitis were held in the Chl ist mu i hnrcli Inst Sunday after noon, conducted by Ucv. K K. Day.
