CROCKERS EDUCATIONAL JOURNAL AND DAWSON OUTLOOK, Vol.VlI FALLS CITY, NEBRASKA, FRIDAY, JUNE 24, m<>. Number 26 ROUNDING UP HORSETHIEVES MUCH CREDIT DUE SHERIFF FENTON AND CHIEF MARTS. Jim Smith, a Suspect, Rounded Up at Mound City Tuesday Officers Good Work. Jim Smith, who is suspected of knowing more about the stealing of the Jones team than is good for him, was arrested at Mound City last Tuesday by Sheriff Fenton and Chief Maie, and broulit back here and will be arraigned in the county court on Thursday. This, as we believe, breaks up a gang of horse tiiieves which has been working this county for years. Smith lias a family living in Highland, Kas. Walters and Mc Mahan, the other member of the trio, who arc with us on the same charge, will have their preliminary next Mon day. The evidence will surely be sufficient to convince the judge that thes? men should become wards of the siate. Too much credit cannot hi' given our sheriff and chief of police for their untiring efforts in breaking up the gang, which lias worked in Richardson county successfully for so long. To know' that such things arc going on is one thing but to catch a fellow and prove him guilty is an other and much harder. Our officers we believe have done this and we should lie. and are, very protul of them for what they have don for the city and county. Christian Church.

Come and help make this a sph ndid service Sunday evening. All are invited to come and bring your friends. Must Be Decent. A number of young girls of Falls City have been extravagantly free in th«ir social relations. Several were taken into custody by the police court and sent home to their mothers where they belong. The moon-eyed guy from Rulo who was arrested among the weeds south of town with ou< of them t.ho other night, was fined as he deserved to be. Worse things are likely to happen to the girl? if they are not more maidenly and discreet in their behavior. We wish to warn all parties who may be concerned in similar improprieties in the future that names and facts will be published. Our facilities for getting bold of the facts are im proving as our familiarity with local conditions increases. There is only one way to keep out of the limelight of publicity with its humiliation and shame, and that is by being decent. James. One of the twin babies of Mr. and Mrs. E. E. James died early Sun day morning, after a brief but. very severe illness of one day. The sick ness appeared to be a case of un developed measles resulting in con vulsions. The funeral was held from the home Monday afternoon at two o’clock and interment in the Steele cemetery. Dr. Bailey officiated, as sisted by Rev. Nanninge. The sor rowing family have the sympathy of their many friends and neighbors. Voegele. William Voegele died at his home Saturday morning. He had been ill for several weeks. The funeral was held from the Williamsville church on Tuesday afternoon at two o’clock. Mr. Voegele came to Richardson county in 3 865 and has resided here ever since. He was a farmer by occupation. He leaves his widow and ten children to mourn his depart ure. Dedication. The dedication of the Presbyterian church last Sunday was a memorable event Large numbers attended the diff* lent services. Standing room was at a premium. The sermons were able arid to the purpose. The new building was dedicated almost free of debt. WORD FROM GERMANY. Mrs. Emma Boose Tucker Writes To Her Father In This City. Mr. and Mrs. Tucker,son-in-law and daughter ot' Win. Boose of this city have started home from a residence , of eight years in China. They are j coming overland as much as possible 1 and, as The Tribune is read by a number of their friends, we feel that the following card rcccivtal by the father, would be of interest. ‘'Between Berlin and Cologne,June 10, 1910. Dear Father—If ever there was a spot on earth that satisfied one’s soul, it is the ‘Fatherland.’ Such thrift, such cleanliness, such perfect mastery of the art of fann ing and all applied sciences, such comfortable homes, such gardening, such a beautiful country. Even though largely level from the eastern bordej to here, largely through the perfect pastoral landscape a thrifty people have made and all oilier su perlatives you may wish to use—all these belong to Germany. In a lit tle while we will see the famed Rhine and Cologne Cathedral. Two nice days in Berlin and one in Dres den's world famed art galleries. Left Berlin al 8:52 this morning., due in London 5:18 tomorrow.” "Stick To It, Dad.” Editor of The Falls City Tribune Dear Sir:—Except by reputation,you and I are entire strangers; but in spite of this fact, I take the liberty to send you the following: In the Falls City News recently, I saw the statement: “Bryan is actuat ed in his opposition to the saloon by the fact that they defeated him in his several campaigns for presi dent.” This reminds me of the story of the family which had a pup of the fighting breed, and, having tio other dog with which the pup could prac tice fighting with, the boys induced the father to try his ability along that line. While the pup was chew ing the the sire, the boys yelled, “Stick to it dad. It’s hard on you, but it’s the making of the pup.” Evidently the News appreciates (he fact, that it was hard on Bryan but was the making of the breweries and distilleries. It took Bryan and Kern a long time to find out that you couldn't “gather grapes of thorns, nor figs of thistles.” The bravest thing I ever saw was from a penitent at the altar. He said, "Thank God I have the cour age to give up." Hoping we may yet be able to clear the saloon from the reform track, I am Yours Respectfully, GEO. WATKINS. Nitzsche. Frederick Nitzsche was born in Germany. January 21. 1820, and died in Arago, this county. .Tune 13, 1910. In 1853 he came to America locat ing in Buffalo, N. Y. In 1858 he mov ed to Arago, where he has since lived. In 1S71 his wife died at the ago of forty-seven years. To this union was horn ten children, four of whom are still living: Fred E. who lives on the home place, Mrs. George Bickle of Goffs, Fas., Mrs. Louise Zoellpr of Happy, Texas, Mrs. August Woeh ler of Corning, Mo. He also leaves twenty-five grand-children and four teen great-grand children. For A Clean Falls City. Tlie police court is working for a clea.r Falls City. Malfactors need ex pect little consideration at the court’s hands. We surmise that our dough ty mayor is about ready to bag the local d''i U and put him in the cool er. Of course the county prosecute^ will defend him and every , horse thief Billy Fenton and our big chief can 'and. Whiskey, the devil and the prosecuting attorney are boon companions—and horse thieves(?), Arrived From Colorado. Mr. and Mrs. Ed Jones arrived the latter part of the week from Colorado. They have spent the past fourteen months on a homestead at Sayre, Col. They say the climate there is fine, and their sojourn in that country was one grand, glorious vacation. Both were glad to greet their many Falls City friends again, and say the old town looks good to them. Dawson Up Against It. Dawson is without hotel accomoda tions. Mr. Kirk recently closed shop and went to the country' to work. The situation is rather em barrasing this hot. strenuous weath | it. In Dawson you must go hungry j and ttiirsty. IN THE TOILS OF A HOODOO OUR PEERLESS ONES TOYING WITH BR ER BONEHEAD. A Record of Eight Straignt Games Lost Outclassed by Clarinda Foxes To Strengthen. The Inst series of games tit this place were a nightmare. We wish they could be forgotten. We lost all of them and slid down until, if the list were turned upside down, we would be nearer the top than we are now. It wasn't all poor play ing but just not playing together at critical times, and as some of our best players were on the hospital list. Clarinda just took them all. The games however, were more in teresting than the score would indi cate. Clarinda lias some excellent players. One of our fans said after visiting with them awhile that they would no doubt finish at the top if they stayed as clean at other towns and r.i home as they did while here. The time is past when profession al athletes can afford to dissipate. Our hoys went to Auburn. Monday and we hope to see them continue the winning steak until they are again at the top. It is easy to find fault. Easy' to sit up in the grandstand and say how this o! that play should have been made, hut we can do more good by getting down and taking the hoys by the hand and telling them to go in and win next time. Wi have a good team and this slump doesn't mean anything in par ticular, at least not that, it is nec essary to change the makeup of the team to any great extent. Where will you find another battery as good as ours? And with a little coaching, the individual stars in the Infield can he developed into a team. So as the season is still young we may yet climb back to where we were in the beginning. Bo,' s, we want you to chase your hoodoo, forget all unjust criticisms. Get into every game with the idea you are going to win, and not say inil until the last man is out in the last inning. Brace up. We are with you. We lost the game Tuesday, 2 to I. but it was a case of luck for Au burn With the new men who have been secured, we are in the race for first place once more. With McCabe back in harness, and the others all out of the hospital, we are in shape again This is ideal base ball weath er. If the boosting of loyal fans will do any good, ar.d it will, our boys will soon be in first place again. Falls City won from Auburn Wed nesday. 7 to 1. Now three straight on the horn- grounds,beginning Thurs day t nd we will breathe again. A Base Ball Kick. Editor Tribune—The base ball sea son is one-third gone and the home team is earnestly seeking the bot tom rung of the ladder. At the time of writing, we have lost nine out ol the last ten games. Every body says, strengthen the team, but the days and weeks go by and nothing is done. Why wait until we are hope’essly beaten before making the team stronger? If we are to have new and better material, why not get it now when we still have a fight ng chance. The truth of the matter is. we have a weak ball team. The team of last year, when the home boys played for the love of the game, was stronger than the present organ ization. We ought to have three new out fielders. Men who can start when lie hall is hi* and cover more than twenty feet of space, and make a hit at least once a week. Our out field is a joke as now constituted both in the field and at the bat We are weak at first, in fact Poteet is the only man on the team that is showing any especial class. Our pitching staff is fair and has been doing its full share towards winning games. But the rest, of it, in base ball language, is rotten. Game after game lias been lost by weak hitting and unspeakable field ing. There are many good men in the Kansas City city league that could be signed. We say we will strengthen, but nothing is done. The time to do this is while we have a figh'ing chance at the flag and that time is now. A Disgusted Fan. Business College. The Falls City Business College will open as per schedule. Sept. 5th. It will be better equipped than ever to serve the needs of students. MADDOX.FORDYCE. Very Pretty Home Wedding In This City Wednesday Evening.

Why can't we have one. lCverybody wants one. The city needs one. Whenever there is a baud in town people turn out on mass to hoar it. There is enough talent, in * Kails City to have an excellent hand, if someone would but call a meeting for the purpose of organizing, we could no doubt start out with a bunch of players which would need but. a little practice, to be a credit to Kails City. That Kails City appreciates good music, and 1 lint we have an abun dance of talent, wo all know. Lei some one who Is acquainted with the players and the situation, take the first, step and we will have a baud. The following was brought in by a frien 1 just after the Lincoln Commer cial club hud been in town, and shows the real situation. “Why not, was ringing.Jn my ears wiieii the Lincoln Commercial Club visited our town and the gentle strains of music floated over our peaceful city; yes, why should not Kalis City have a brass baud of her own. To me it seems very strange that c thrifty city like ours should be without a well organized brass band of not less than fifteen or twen ty men. “Where is the Moses that will lead us out of this musical wilderness. "That our people are music loving was evidenced by the large attend ance at tlie organ recital at <lie Pres byterian church. That we have the talent, one can assure himself by visiting the various choirs of our churches. There are few cities In the state with better material than ours. Then why not. It seems to me that there are no oppositions; our business men and our churches, yea every sensible citizen would welcome and contribute their part to the bring ing about of this fact —Contributed.” Presbyterian Church Notes. The great day of dedication of the new Presbyterian church edifice lias come and gone Into history. It sure ly marked a great epoch in the his tory, of the denomination in this city. On Saturday evening vve fared a de ficit rf something over $5,000.00, and on Sunday evening that deficit had been reduced by a little over $1,200.OR Wlm. enthusiasm prevailed all day The giving was superb and it is tlie desire of the pastor and officers alike tliai the public should lie in formed of our sincere appreciation of tlie help given on that day. In view of (lie many demands being made at iliis lime upon the church people and general public, vve are sincerely grate ful to all concerned for the generous help given in our time of crucial need, if any of the friends who made pledges lari Sunday find thein selve.1 aide to liquidate the pledges now. it will he a great advantage to the building committee if they will call upon Fred Brecht at Mr. Hea cock's up town office where he will gladly receive any contributions of fered It is discovered that we need sonn tiling over $1,000.00 to cover our remaining indebtedness. In our ex tremity vve confidently appeal to the publt ■ spirited of our city, who have not been able to help thus far, to assist us as soon and as much as pos sible. Again expressing our sincere gratitude, we are for the building committee Respectfully, R Cooper Bailey, Chairman. Tlie Sacrament of baptism and th Holy Communion will be administer ed m xt Sunday morning. All the membership is urged to be present for that sacred service.

FULLS CITY PLUCKS A PLUM A FEDERAL BINDING ASSURED TO COST $67,000 00. Tide in the Affairs of Falls City on the Sw/ell Logical Place for Educational Institution. Late Wednesday afternoon a mes sage was leceived from Senator Hur ket of Wa.-diington, to tile effect that the senate had just passed the bill appropriating $07,000 for a federal building at Falls City. "It never rains, but it pours.” Falls City is more fortunate than site de serve! to lie. .lust, what all that this will mean to Falls City is Impossible to foretell at ibis early stage of the matter. This rnueh is assured, that Falls City will have a fine govern ment. pnsioffice building erected in tile near future. City delivery and other advantageous features are cer tain to follow. Tli tide in the affairs of Falls City is on tile swell. If just at this Junction the city could be Induced to do In ■ part, still greater things would ii suit. Thus far our good tilings have come to us with little effort anti prat tically no outlay on tile part tif tin city. If the city took a strong hand in the present advance the otherwise impossible would easily bo accomplished. Falls City is the logi cal place for a strong educational in stitution. There is absolutely noth ing to prevent us having an insti tutin'! of learning and culture repre senting the Investment of hundreds of thousands in money and the bring ing to the business interests of tho town the trade of hundreds of new people, excepting the general indif ference of a very large part of our i-ltiz us to the welfare and growth of their home town. It is difficult to understand why our people aro so slow to make use of their opportuni ties. Is it probable there are those among us, who are deliberately witholding their support in order to discourage the growth of the city. The bringing here of peeople of cul ture and eharaeter, will necessarily tend to strengthen the cause of de cency and morality. Realizing tills, is it possible that, there are people in town, who would rattier see 1 ho Interests of Falls City decline than give up their pet ideas? The Lincoln Boosters. 'I'li ■ Lincoln Commercial Club spec ial arrived in Falls City from Table Hock over the Burlington, Monday evening. The train reached here too late to give the club a fair chance for seeing tin* town and meeting with tho business people, as they left again early Tuesday morning. Their advent and departure was scarcely noticed. The club stopped long enough at Dawson and Salem to go up street and serenade the town. From items which have since ap peared in the Lincoln papers, the club was favorably impressed with what they saw and heard while in Falls City. Falls City’s location is far enough from Lincoln to he of some real interest to that place from a commercial and educational point of view. That the Boosters ap preciated this fact there is no doubt. Card of Thanks. We take this means of thanking our itiends and neighbors for their many acts of kindness and words of comfort spoken, during the sickness and death of our beloved wife, dau ghter and sister. Mrs. Minnie Long. We also extend thanks to friends for the In nutiful floral offering. HOWARD LONG. MRS. W. P. LONG. FRED LONG. Holiness Camp Meeting.
