Witnessed By Many Out-of-Town Brothers Friday Night. It is a matter of common knowl edge that when Falls City Lodge No. :!(! of the i. O. O. F., lias any special degree work on hand, there will stire I ly be some visitors from surrounding towns present to see the work. Last Friday night however, the record for visitors and interest seem ed to climb toward the top Men wore present from Wymore, Chester, Pawnee, Table Rock, Humboldt, Haw sou, Salem, Rulo, Verdon, from sev eral towns in Kansas, Missouri. Iowa, and one gentleman from Ohio, made it a point to s c the work done by th - degree team of this lodge. The first degree was given in the presence of nearly tot) men, and, af ter the work v as finished, speeches were in order, and one after another declared that though the work had been witnessed from Maine to Cali ! fornia in the several jurisdictions,yet. Falls City held the distinction of be ing able to interpret the work and j exemplify the teii, hings better and ; more efficiently than in any other | place. A general social line was m i | joyed by all until midnight. Building at Falls City. It is said and believed that Fulls City isn't as good a town as Hiawa tha. isn't as rich a town and isn't j much larger, yet Falls City keeps i in -! proving most sensibly. The vinegar works there is a good paying venture Hiawatha turned down. The big poultry house established there is well worth the cost, it will bring the poultry sellers to town. Here's something we can’t understand: Hiawatha is a better behaved town than Falls City, yet Falls City churches seem to be thriving and out growing those of Hiawatha. It is possible that the church people will be able to close the saloons at the coming election. The Presby terian people are building a $15,000 church. Mr. Henry Smith has giv en it a splendid $2,500 organ. The Methodists have a $10,000 or $12,0001 | church building and will build on | an $8,000 addition. The Christians; are preparing to build a fine church ! | building. The Catholics are putting ! up a Cathedral. They always build I ■strong and well. -Hiawatha World. Sunday School Convention.

Sec. i THE NEMAHA'S NEW ROUTE THE BIG DREDGE RESUMES lTS CHANNEL CUTTING Work to Be Pushed With More Than Usual Vigor Work on South Fork Delayed The big (Tredge, so long idle in the bottom, over against Falls City, lias steam up again and is: busily teat ing out the new channel for the Nema ha. In a few weeks the dredge will have cut through to the Nemaha, let ting ttie water flow through the new cut till beyond Falls City. It is expected to prosecute the work of ditching the Nemaha bottoms with more than usual vigor this spring, in the hope of getting tin; work done at tin- earliest possible time. The new dredge being built soutii of Dawson will lie ready for work in a few weeks, and s will at once begin cutting the channel open between Dawson and Salem. The dredge on the Miles Ilaueh. which lias done nothing to speak of since built early last fall, on account of legal difficulties, will, it is hoped, soon get busy also and open the way of the South Fork to its junction with the North Fork east of Salem. There have been many unlook< d for obstacles to meet and overcome which iiet essarily have delayed the progress of the dredging. ,l! is ex pected, however, that with the ad justment of most of these difficulties, DEATH OF OLIVER W BROWN TUESDAY NIGHT.

Mr Brown was widely known as an expert accountant and book-keeper, and at times served in that capacity Champion Girls' High School Basket Ball Team, 1909-10. the work will go forward to a speedy termination without serious in term p t ion. It will be a great relief to many people when the big diteh is finally finished and its success or failure experitut ntally and actually demon strated by the way it cares for the first big freshet. There are still a great many interested parties, and others, who have no confidence in the ultimate success of the under takink. Their doubts can only be substantially and satisfactorily nit t by an actual demonstration. That the ditch, if properly constructed, will more than meet the expectations of its most ardent supporters is ottr firm conviction. NEW SHOE STORE. J. Lansky, Formerly With M. Seff, To Open One.
