Schmelzel Tuesday afternoon. They report the usual busy and of course, good time. Several guests from out of town were there. Horse Thieves Caught. Sheriff Kenton and Chief of Police Sam Marts made a new record for quick work Tuesday morning. Monday night Charles McMahan and Melvin Walters went to the barn of Wm. Branscom, near the old wat er works and took a team, which they forge, to pay for or even notify the own r that they intended to feed for him. Tuesday morning the officers were notified, and one hour after the thieves had crossed the ferry going to St. Heroin the officers crossed in persuit. The men had no idea they were being followed until the officers were upon them. One of them started to run toward some trees nearby, but a gentle re minder by the sheriff that the sprint would be his last one caused the fel low to “stand without hitching.” Much credit is due to botli Sheriff Fenton and Chief Marts for the rap id tire order in which this matter was handled. Walters has been in trouble before. Three years ago lie was arrested for burning a barn at Rulo and has since been arrasted by Cheif Marts on sev eral occasions for minor offences. There has been for some time a place where stolen horses seem to lanish. These horses were no doubt, going into this neighborhood and we hope that the arrest of these m«n will, in a measure, stop our part of the trouble. RED LETTER DAY. A Fine Programm Rendered—Annual Childrens' Day. Juno 12th was rod letter day at the j Evangelical church. On this day! these people held their annual Chil-j drens’ Hay The day was one of the1 most beautiful June Sundays. The morning dawned cloudless, and Un people gathered from far and near for the morning service. The floral dec orations were exceptionally fine; the church wan fragrant with roses and wild daisies and many of the other varieties now m season. The large choir under the efficient leadership of Edward Daeschner did noble service. All were made to feel that the gospel of His grace is never sweeeter than when it is the gospel in song. The part the little folks had in the pro gram was well rendered. The offering of the day for the spread of the gospel was $35.30. In the evening. Rev. Nanninga gave his lecture on one of America’s most useful institutions or the work of the Sunday School. The speaker said: “We have in this great country four institutions on which the well being of our people rest. The first are the homes and the home training of the children. If the home fails every other of the institutions must in that measure fall. The second institution is our complete school system. The other two in order, the Sunday school and the church.” In a country like ours where we have a complete separ ation of church and state, it is quite plain what responsibilities fall upon the Sunday school. The speaker em phasized that fact that as the day school trains the mind In all useful knowledge, so it is the mission of the Sunday School to teach, to in struct and train the religious mind of the child. The Sunday school must never lose sight of this fact that she is the educator of the children in things spiritual and religious. This brought to foreground the very important problem,the Sunday School teacher. Missouri Pacific Works. The work on the round house Is nearing completion. There has been much disappointment on the part of the new' employees not be ing able to get needed accommoda tions in Fnlls City. The date for the removal of the division from At chison here has been necessarily post poned. The coal chute and water works are going up rapidly. The com pletion of both will add matherially to the appearancce of things around the yards. The main track has been leveled up and received its surfacing of sand this week. The work of leveling up the yard, filling in around the. round house and finishing up generally, goes merrily on. There still remains the ash dump and the office building to de definitely plan ned for. No doubt work on them will be begun, before long. Supt. McManus is pushing the work on the employees’ homes. The ground has been platted and staked off. The work of construction will begin as soon as possible. Some two score cottages are expected to go up at once. A Strong Enterprise. The National Poultry and Kgg Co. are moving into their new quarters at the foot of Stoim street today. The main building now' nearly completed is quite an imposing structue. It will be the main storage and refriger ating building. A gravity system of refrigeration has been installed in it, and in a few days the com pany will be in position to take cate of all the poultry, eggs and butter their hundreds of customers can ship them. Other buildings will go up as soon as possible. This plant under the efficient management of Mr. Marr promises to be one of Falls City's strongest enterprises. As this is a wholesale business it draws on a very wide territory and brings to Falls City a large trade which other wise would be lost. Organ Recital. The magnificent, new pipe organ in the Presbyterian church will be opened to the public Friday evening. Prof. Stanley, one of the most accom plished performers on pipe organs west of Chicago, will give a recital. He will be ably supported by his accomplished wife, who is a good sopranist. The occasion will bring as fine a musical talent to the town as ever was in Falls City. You will want to hear them. A SAD REVERSAL OF FORM — FALLS CITY CLUB NOW KNOW THE TASTE OF DEFEAT. Auburn Plucks Two Games Clar inda Hogs Three The Club Now in Second Place. The Auburn boys lost the first game to Falls City5 to 2.. The ganio was interesting from start to finish. Something doing all the time. The work on both teams shows that there is a genuine base ball spirit iti each player and the crowd surely proves that it pays to play clean ball. The game Friday was a good one even though we lost it to Auburn ti to 4. Miller and Smith had charge of the firing line and until the eighth inning the game was ours. Then the load came out of their shoes, and Auburn taking advantage of some wild throws, was able to get a lead which we could not overcome. Saturday’s game was a repetition of Friday’s only a better one. Duran delivered for us and was in the game, (lill for Auburn was at his best. Both pitchers had such control that not a man was given a pass to first. Our battery is in the hospital just a lit tle. McCabe sprained his arm Tues day. and Poteet is suffering in the same way, but we hope they will both be back in harness in a few days. The other boys are all right, but we need all of them. Our hall team seems to be on the slide and somebody has been greas ing the toboggan. The pitchers have been going well hut the hatting is far ftotn satisfactory. The following are the Individual batting averages as compiled from the games on the home grounds: Martin, 315. McCabe, 300. Smith, 285. Poteet, 250. McBride, 250. Sloane, 240. Sarver, 220. Annis, 200. Ransom, 170. Van Tappen. 150. Duran, 000. Miller, (100. This shows the team to he bat ting but 198 on the home grounds. For it to be a winning aggregation, it should bat not less than 250 at home. The town remains loyal to the boys, notwithstanding the slump, but, inas much as we have dug up the cash to pay salaries, we take the liberty of suggesting that reasonable hours and tlie minimum of dissipation are conducive to good batting eyes. Back about one hundred years, we used to play one old eat with a fel low who Is still in the game, and still kicking about everything that isn’t just as he thinks it should be. Using, yet sometimes under great provoca tion, profane and obscene language, making himself an object of contempt among fans and players alike. He is a great batter and in some other respects a good player, but he could be all this and a gentleman be sides We are glad that we have outgrown this kind of ball playing; that our team is above this kind of thing and that we are sure to see the game played by men who have respect for the opinion of even the umpire, • * « Sage will umpire the Clarinda games Hooray! * * * Sarver lias made the only home run on the home grounds. * * * The change in the batting order will work well. Just watch it. * * * Smith is a good catcher, and one of the best hitters on the team. * * * McCabe is not only a good hitter, but he is a swell short-stop as well. • * » O, for the smash of “Teeter’s" bat, the sound of the hits that are still. * * * VanTappen continues his fine field ing, but his batting is getting a little dim. * * * McBride is picking up in hitting and continues to field his position in class A style. * » * The fans are all hoping that the hot weather will take the ‘‘kink" out of Tommy’s arm. * * * Clarinda has not played here so far but the three games this week will give us a line on the Iowans. Duran should have had a shut-out In both games ho pitched against Au burn. * * * Base Ball Notes, And Auburn, the roar guard, took two out of throe on our home grounds, * * * Tlie fans are ripe for the Clarinda games, Thursday, Friday and Satur day and record breaking crowds will be In the stands. * * * Sloane continues his usual good game. His two base hit with the bases full in the first Auburn game was timely and put the game on Ice. • * * McCabe was saved for Clarinda and was not used against Auburn. Next time we will save McCabe for Au burn and not use him against Clar inda. * * * Ransom's release pleases the fans. He was hopelessly out.-classed in the league. If the new man is a good hitter, he will make the team much stronger. * * * Auburn is at the bottom, but. keep your eyes on this team. The team that win the pennant is going to have an argument with our sister city be fore the curtain falls on the season. * * + •lust bear in mind that we play Clarinda on the home grounds Thurs day, Friday, and Saturday of this week. This will he a hot fight for leadership and these three games will be hummers. * * * A more orderly, well behaved crowd than that turned out. by Falls City can not be found anywhere. Practically all of our preachers attend the games and at least half the specta tors are ladles. * * • The stands thought Manager Hill should have sent Poteet in to hit for Ransom Saturday, when there were two men on bases. Tommy lias sev eral hits in his system and we all remember the games he has broken up in the past. If the few knockers in the grand stanJ who volunteer so much advice concerning Manager Bill, had half the basd ball sense that ^he old man has in his noodle, the tortured listeners might have a little more patience with their twaddle. * * * The best Falls City could get from Meyers was the worst, of It. This Dutchman is too officious. He is somewhat “chesty" over a little authority and usually exercised it. by creating opportunities to hand it to Falls City whenever possible. Miller pitched good ball against Au burn and should have won his game. He held them down to four hits while we made ten. The eight errors be hind him. however, proved loo big a handicap. Miller is a good pitcher and will win his full share of the games before the season is over. • « • Knock the knocker. This goes double. We have a choice assort ment that infest the grand stand and makes life miserable for the specta tors who attend the game to enjoy them and not to hear tlie anvil chor us that sets up every time a batter strikes out or a fielder makes an er ror. * * * Auburn is the fastest visiting team that has played here, and the fans believe that it is only hard luck that is keeping this team down. The players are all gentlemanly and clean, and strange as it may seem, our peo ple are all wishing Auburn the best luck In the world. In fact, the state ment was heard many times that if the home team must be beaten they would rather have a bunch like Au burn or Nebraska City do it than any other. The Auburn boys all spoke of the treatment accorded them here and of the impartial manner in which the fans applauded good plays. Notice. Tin- Falls City Fishing Club will meet Saturday evening at eight o'clock at Wirth's store. All mem bers and others interested are invit ed to attend. F. \. KELLER, Pres. F. K FARRINGTON, Sec.

Died At Her Horne South of Town Sunday Evening. Minnie Elizabeth Neff, second dau ghter of Orange and Elizabeth Neff was born In Kearney, Neb,, Sept. 13, IS"!*. At eleven years of age she eatne with her parents to Ksills City; a little over a year later she went to make her home with T. 3. Cist and fumily, where she remained for fif teen years. On the 14th day of February, 11*07 she was married to Howard Long of this city. They located immediately niton a farm near Dawson; after liv ing there for two years, they bought a farm Just across the Kansas line, which is still their home, SI e grew to womanhood in our midst, attended the public schools and early in life site united with the Methodist church. At one time she taught a class in the Sunday school composed of boys, who are now young men. Minnie, as she was familiarly known *<) all, was modest and winning, hav ing an inborn faculty of making and keeping friends until their number is legion. Her nurse spoke the senli ment of ail who knew her when she remaiked to n lady, “who could he with Mrs. Hong a week and not love her.” The beautiful casket of clay con fined a far more beautiful spirit, that was adorned with nil the womanly gracces; it seemed that nothing was lacking, but. four weeks ago last Tues day the finishing touch was added when she entered the Valley of the Shadow and came forth witli the halo of motherhood about her. When the tiny morsel of life, fresh from the hands of Its Creator, was laid in her arms, she exclaimed, "Can it be I'm In Heaven.” She had tasted earth's sweetest Joy. Hast Sunday evening as the day was growing tired and the shadows grew long and dark, her spirit took its flight and entered into the pres ence of her Master to hear the glad words, “well done.” As the last light of day was dying in the west, a group of loving friends lingered just outside the door of her home, thinking of the miracle that had Just been wrought in their pres ence and asking "why?” and “whith er.” A little bird perched on an over hanging hough near by and poured forth a volume of song that seefued to say, “listen and learn,” and an infinite calm fell upon them! Who knows if we but had ears to hear and hearts to Interpret, what mes sage the little songster might have been bringing? Sure it is, that it. was a song of triumph sung in the calm of that beautiful Sabbath even ing. The years of Mrs. Long's earthly life extended from Sept. 13, 1879 un til June 13, 1910, but the end of the memory of her sweet spirit and acts of loving kindness is not yet nor will be as long as one lives who knew her. The dawn of her eternal life began nt sunset last Sunday evening and the triumph and burst of glory was heralded to us by the twilight song of the little night bird. She leaves her husband and little daughter, Ruth Emma, a father and mother, flvt sisters, one brother, and a host, of sorrowing friends. But she has only gone on just ahead to make the pathway a little sweeter and a little surer that leads to Him. Splendid Program. The Christian Endeavorers of the Christian church gave an entertain ment last Sunday evening to a crowd ed house. It was In the form of a musical and literary program. Those present were highly entertained and speak words of praise for the splen did way in which the young people handled the affair.

We all saw it from tho midget porker which followed its mate around the track, to the mam moth elephant with Its almost human Intelligence Kails City and the s»r sonndlng country surely satisfied tho show company that we appreciate and enjoy a clean entertainment; and In justice to the company, will say that we were given that kind. The performance wus of a high or der, being both entertaining and in structive. The rowdy element which used to follow show companies was conspicuous on account of its ab sence, which is also a commendable feature. Most, everyone enjoys a good circus but those who don't, and had to go In order to see that “the children’’ had a good time, seemed to us to be having as good a time as those of us who have never really grown up.
