will follow in time.
In the oreliminary workout Tues
day afternoon a careful estimate of
the Ltrength of the team was im
possible. A number of tin boys
showed such form that that with
practice and drill in team-work, they
will no doubt develop into a team
that will be a credit to the city.

good will and spirit. Let everybody
join in an effort that will show ap

part a splendid celebration can be car
ried out, to the credit of the com
munity and to the honor of the old
soldiers, both living and dead, and
it will not bo a burden to anyone. Let
each one contribute his mite and the
day can he made a grand success.

Falls City Greatly in Need of Pub
lic Toilet and Rest Rooms
Ear-Mark of Culture.
One of the ear marks of culture
anil social progress is the provision
made, both public and private, for
the care and comfort of the body. As
people become more refined they also
become more thoughtful. Natural
delicacy compels them to provide
conveniences not dreamed of by their
less refined forbears. l£folt™iw then
that the toilet facilities of a city of
any size are a fair index of standard
of culture of the citizens.
It cannot be-said to the credit of
Falls City that we have practically no
public conveniences of this kind.
There is no place in town where
ladies and children t an retire to rest,
or for toilet purposes, that is entire
ly open to the public. There should
be rooms conveniently located, and
maintained at the public expense,
j where visitors eoulil at all times re
lire for privacy and rest, and to at
tend to their physical wants.
Such a place would be a great, re
lief to tired shoppers, especially to
.those from the more distant country
districts, it would also tend to re
lieve the congestion in stores on
busy days, as women and children
have no other place to wait, and are
compelled to hang round the store
rooms, to their own mortification
and the hindrance of business. It
would also bo in the interests of
cleanliness, sanitation and good mor
als. Falls City needs a rest room.
■I,nil needs it badly. Who will .,„ur
the ball a rolling? And who will
help give tlie good tiling a boost
Special from Humboldt.
After an illness coveting a period
of several years Lawrence M Sterns
died at his home ^>n Nemaha street
at an early hour Friday morning. His
death was due to tuberculosis, from
which malady Mr. Sterns Pas been
afflicted for several years. The dis
ease assumed ,i serious nature during
the early winter months, compelling
tiim to remain at bis home a greater
part of the time, his business being
in the hands of competent assistants.
Mr. Sterns has for years been num
bered among our most enterprising
and upright mercantile men, being
engaged in the dry goods business.
The deceased was numbered among
the early settlers of Humboldt and
was among the public spirited men
who assisted in moulding this town.
Funeral services were held from the
family home Monday morning at
11 conducted by Rev. John Cal
vert. who is now in charge of the
Methodist congregation at Sutton,
During the hour of funeral services
the business houses were closed. Tilt*
remains were* interred in the' Hum
boldt cemetery. The* deceased is sur
vived by a wife* and numerous rela
tives in this locality.
Burlington train No. 4:; was six
houre late Tuesday evening, arriving
at Falls City at one o'clock Wednes
day morning. A dozen ei more
strangers got off and went up town
to find lodging. But they tried iu
vain. Every house in town was full.
The men verc compelled to sit up
until morning. They entertained
one another swearing at Falls City
and her lack of accommodations. They
overlooked the fact that Falls City,
like a husky kid. has outgrown her
clothes. The present accommodations
arc not equal to the demands.
Falls City is getting to he too crowd
ed Hi be comfortable. We need more
lodging houses and hotel accommoda
tions to properly care for the con
stantly increasing number of strang
ers in town.

A Band.
That a city as large as Kalis City ]
should lie without a good hand is!
unusual. .Music figures so largely in !
the success of all public gatherings
that the lack of it hand is ,i serious
handicap. We are convinced that
the situation admits of relief The
talent is available, what is needed is
leadership, someone w ho has the
ability and the will to organize and ]
conduct a good band. The Tribune!
will be glad to In ar front any who]
have suggestions to offer.
