AN IMPROVED FULLS CITY
EXTENSIVE IMPROVEMENTS BY
THE MISSOURI PACIFIC
Surprises at Every Turn A Modern
Round House, Coal Chutes
a Network of Yardage.
While our friends in the country
were busily occupied with their spring
and summer work, Falls City was
also busy making changes and im
provements of her own. The most
striking of these of course is the round
house and other buildings in the
Missouri Pacific yards south of town.
Here sight-seeers will find surpris
es awaiting them at every turn. The
perspective from almost any angle
of approach is imposing. The exter
ior of the twenty-four stall round
house is practically complete, the
huge turn table is in its place, and
the needed grading about the plare
is, so far as appearance goes attend
ed to. And over all a coat( of clean
sand has been spread which gives the
yards a very neat and tidy appear
The modern coaling chute is quite
an interesting affair in itself. Here
the coal is dumped directly from the
cars into the pit below the tracks,
from where it is elevated, cleaned,
broken into convenient sizes for use
and is then distributed to the loading
chutes from which it can be quiekly
dropped onto the engine tenders.
Between the round house and the
coaling-chute is the ash pit and to the
south and beyond the main track the
new office building is going up.
Tlie main track east of the Bur
lington crossing has been elevated to
conform with the grade of the round
house and the yards. Away to the
east extends the net work of yard
trackage and the scores of connecting
switches. It is a sight worth seeing,
and visitors miss much who fail to
take, the time to go over the yards.
A Pointer For The Farmer.
The college classes are coming to
the Inter-State Live Stock show in
St. Joseph the week of September 26
to October 1st. These classes recog
nize the worth of the Live Stock show
for the study of stock judging. The
exhibitors are always ready and will
ing to have the college judging class
es take their stock for class work and
the value of this class work is recog
nised by the faculty in all of the Agri
cultural colleges. Now, if the show
is of so much value to the college
student, then why is it not equally
valuable to the farmer and his boys
who have not the advantage of the
college? Think it. over and think of
the Inter-State where there will be
classes in advanced live stock judg
ing from C'e leading Agricultural Col
leges of the country.
C. E. Adams for U. S. Senator.
C. E. Adams is the .ogical candi
date for United States senator of
Nebraska. His agressiveness, his
wide experience, his opposition to
graft, greed and dishonesty, easily
places him in the foremost ranks of
clean politics and a square deal. He
believes that the conscience of the
country should be represented in the
government of the country. He never
side-steps. Vote for him at the
primary, August 16th.
Important Bulletins For Parents.
Prof. Wm. A. McKeever. of the
Kansas Agricultural College, is put
ting out a series of bulletins which
should be in every farm home and in
every city home as well. These bulle
tins deal with the training of boys
and girls. He has issued five up to
the. present time. The first deals
with “The Cigarette Smoking Hoy”;
the second one deals with the sub
ject of “Teaching the Boy to Save”;
the third, “Training the Girl to Help
in the House”; the fourth, “Assisting
the Boy in the Choice of a Vocation”,
and the fifth, “A Better Crop of Boys
and Girls,” Every one of these bul
letins should be read carefully by par
ents. They can be obtained by writ
ing Prof. McKeever, Manhattan, Kan
sas, and enclosing one cent for each
Ur. Stuart’s lecture Sunday night
at the cnautauqua on the rather
unique theme of, “Stump Digger,”

set of arguments against the saloon
that are absolutely unanswerable.

As To State Senator.
Mr. Johnson of Pawnee City will
be nominated as the republican can
didate for the state senate at the
primary the 16th inst., as he has no
opposition. But with the democrats
it is a question. O. E. Hall, of Paw
nee City, a county option democrat,
is running, as is also J. H. Morehead
of this city, who is slated as opposed
to county option. Mr. Hall is a
worthy citizen, but few democrats
opposed to county option will by any
means vote for him. County option
democrats should be as wise and not
vote for Morehead.
Invariable custom gives Pawnee the
senator two years, then Richardson
two. This time it is Pawnee’s turn,
and all concerned should be fair. We
have just enjoyed the last two years,
in the person of our own senator, J.
R. Cain, Jr., who has represented
the two counties so very ably. Two
years ago when it was our turn to
furnish the senator, not a voice in
Pawnee was lifted to beat us out of
our rights. In 1912, we feel sure
they will be equally just to Richard
son again. These are good and suf
ficient reasons why Mr. Hall should
have at least twice as many votes as
Morehead. Parties are sure to lose,
by setting aside the square deal in
politics, and acting utterly selfish.—
Rolland Wright died Friday, Aug

Champ Wright in Marshal, Mo. The
remains were brought to this city
Sunday, and funeral services were
held Monday, conducted by the K. of
P. lodge and interment was made in
the city cemetery. The deceased is
well known in this community, hav
ing spent the greater part of his life
near this city. His brothers, Champ
Wright of Marshal, Mo„ and George
Wright of Montana were present at
David Bley, a middle aged farmer
died suddenly at his home southeast
of this city, Monday. Although he
had been suffering from Bright's dis
ease for some time, his health seem
ed much improved and he was able
to oversee his farm work. His death
was a great shock to his friends.
Tyrolean Alpine Singers.
The “yodling" by the Tyrolean
singers is something out of the ordi
nary. Their manner is so entirely
free from affection, their voices as
clear as bells in their native Alpine
homes, and the music is of a style and
character peculiar to their native
land and life of their people, that it
offers a most refreshing and whole
some variety for lovers of good mu

Things We May Still Learn.
Real estate is rapidly advancing In
Kails City, or rather real estate deal
ers have greatly advanced the price of
their holdings. Rents are also being
greatly increased. It is a reasonable
question to ask, whether this is either
wise or profitable. There is no ques
tion but that the tactics being pur
sued by some of our property holders
is driving people and business from
the city. The people who have oc
casion to look for homes in our city
are not going to pay two prices for
the privilege of coming here If
they can possibly avoid it. And most
of them can avoid it. They are
railroad people and have free trans
portation to the north and south.
Other towns are glad to receive them.
They are a few things we may still

A NEW SALEM.
Salem Will Soon Have a Home
Work oil the new buildings, that
are to take the places of the ones
burned out in the big fire in the
spring, is progressing rapidly. A
number of store rooms ami I lie bank
building are expected to be in condi
tion to permit of their occupation by
the first of September. All the out
side material is brick, iron, stone
and cement. Kuril structure is front
ed with pressed brick .
.1, (1. Ranger's now two-story build
ing Is 24x70. Tile ground floor lie
will occupy with Ills harness shop
mid hardware. The second story will
ho used as a lodge room.
McDowell's general store building
is 30x100. It is strictly modern in
its appointments. A freight elevator
will make quick connection with the
storage rooms in the basement. Mr.
McDowell is also arranging to have
a “rest room" hi connection with
Shildneck Bros.’ new furniture and
hardware store will be 43x80 and con
tain two rooms.
Malone A Pearson’s restaurant and
confectionary store will be 20x70.
The new Salem, now rapidly emerg
ing from tlie ashes of the old town,
will lie altogether a big Improvement
on what it was before. A similar
fire in the business districts will be
impossible in the future.
Plans are also on foot to resurrect
Salem's newspaper. The Index was
totally destroyed by the fire. Mr.
Wickam, the proprietor losing every
thing. For tills reason he has not
felt able to replace the plant destroy
ed. Arrangements are now being
made to Install a plant as soon as
suitable quarters are available. An
outfit has been provided and is now
available. They hope to have the mat
ter well under way within a week or
two, if all parties Interested In pro
viding Salem with another home pa
per will take hold promptly and do
A Matter of Taste.
The fear that the Airdome and
the Chautauqua would conflict is not
being realized. The fact is, that
people who are interested in the
one, find little in the other to their
taste. There is a difference.
The sow and the sheep may keep
company together in the pasture, but
when they seek rest and recreation
they part company, the sow lying
down in the mire with deep grunts
of satisfaction, while the sheep seeks
some green and quiet nook In thfe
shade. It’s all a matter of taste.
The Big Dredge.
!,ast Sunday the big dredge had
pushed its nose up against the pub
lic road south of town and was easy
of access for sightseers and the cur
ious. As a consequence many went
out to get a good look at the big
digger. That the size and massive
ness of the machine impressed all
comers goes without question. It
certainly is a1 ponderous piece of
machinery and well worth anyone’s
while to go and look oveer.
Nebraskans Boost Frontier Days.
One hundred Nebrasans, forty
from the Union stoc k yards at South
Omaha, are going to Cheyenne August
25, 26 and 27 to boost the frontier cel
ebration and do everything possible
to make this celebration a pronounced
success, encourage its continuation
and boost the idea of preserving the
bareback rider and the cow boy.
“Wyoming never fails to come to
Nebraska for any celebration or state
fair and we want to show our appre
ciation of the unique entertainment
which Cheyenne offers the country
each year in the frontier celebration”
says K. Buckingham, general manager
of the Union stock yards and one of
the chief organizers of the party.
The special train bearing this Ne
braska delegation will run over the
Union Pacific and leave Omaha on
Thursday, August 25. Besides the
lice stock interests from South Oma
ha the governors of Ak-Sar-Ben and
a number of prominent Nebraskans
have agreed to go.
Nebraska will be well represented
at Cheyenne and the organizers of
this party say no better advertise
ment can be secured for the state
than bv attending in a body the vari
ous expositions held in other states.
Through its advertising and legisla
tive committees, the Nebraska State
Association of Commercial Clubs has
been asked to attend the Cheyenne
BUSY WEEK FOR FALLS CITY
THE CHATAUQUA ATTRACTING
THE INTELLIGENT MASSES
A Program Replete With Interest
ing and Instructive Features
This has been a busy week in
Falls City. Following closely the
Inuy season, when the farmers and
rural folks are too actively employed
to find time to go to town, Chau
tauqua week came as a relief for
many. The rain. Monday, was not
only a boon to the farmers, but has
proven a business getter for Falls
cit.y. Farmers felt that they could
well afford to take a day or two oft
and leave their fields and stock take
a rest. As a consequence they came
to town, attending to neglected busi
ness and doing necessary shopping.
Most of them also took in the chau
tauqua and base ball, and not a few
stepped inside the Atrdome to get
a taste, if no more.
However, many were not content
with one visit. What they saw and
enjoyed made them wish for more.
The corn lias been left to its own
devices and the pigs In their mud,
and the farmers have come back
again to refresh themselves and feed
imps. Harlow h domestic science lioui
is simply out-of-siglit. Anything that
enters to the stomach Is bound to
challenge tlie interest of the masses.
The tent is crowded at every lecture.
And people go away hungry for more.

Mrs. Birdie Maupin's hour with
the little folks is a treat for all who
stay to listen. She knows the hearts
of the little folks. More children
are In attendance this year than last
year, and altogether the hour is a
very happy and timely one. Parents
can well afford to take the time to
accompany their children to the park
in order to hoar and see Mrs. Maup
in and catch her Bpirit, and if pos
sible learn her method.
The childrens’ play ground, an in
novation this year is a great attract
ion for the young folks and is tho
center of much that is Just whole
some and jolly.
The afternoon wnd evening attend
ance and interest, thus far has been
good. Fully equal to other years in
spite of the connter attractions, af
forded by the Atrdome and base ball.
Sunday will be a big day. It will
mark a climax In the plans of the
Chautauqua for this year. Three able
speakers will magnify the platform
work of the day. The churches will
all dismiss in order to permit their
members to attend as largely as pos
sible. It is not often that we have
the oportunlty to hear talent of such
a high order at home, and we ought
not rob ourselves of the good things*
in store for us at this time. It ia
not the part of the intelligent to ig
nore these meetings. It pays. If not
in dollars and cents, then in the in
spiration and uplift, and outlook that

The crowds on the grounds, and
the air of “we are having a good
time,’’ should be encouraging to the
Chautauqua officials. Nothing has
been left undone to furnish material
for pleasure and profit, and now that
we have the weather man helping us
we should enjoy to the fullest extent
what has been prepared for us. Af
