FALLS CITY’S GREEN HOUSE
SUNNYSIDE — A PLACE OF INTEREST AND BEAUTY
To the uninitiated, a visit to the greenhouse, last Monday
morning would have been very interesting. All hands
were busy working on the floral pieces that were to be 3er.t
out that night to Lincoln, ready for the display at the State
Besides the large collection of blooming and decorative
plants, including roses, carnations, palms, bagonias, , variaga
ted foliage plants, ferns and ivy, all of which were taken to
Lincoln last. Friday by Mr. Pence, there was a fine col
lection of made pieces sent up Monday night. This consisted
of one basket of exquisite La France rcses of superior beau
ty, a large anchor in white ros:s, asters and carnations, and
a wreath of white roses, caniation; and iillies of the valley.
It would be an impossibility to impress the beauty of these
upon those who did not see them in the original. The blos
some and the work of building them into these beautiful
designs are worthy of a city and greenhouse many times the
size of Falls City and Sunnyside. Siamonton and Pence have
reason to be proud because of the enviable record they have
In the past two years Simonton and Pence have taken
more premiums on cut flowers than any other firm exhibit
mg. The following premiums were taken last week.

2nd. on best floral design — Anchor.
1st. on best basket of cut flowers.
1st. on best wreath of cut flowers on easel.
2nd. on best display of cut flowers to cover not less than
tv/enty square feet.
One must visit Sunnyside to appreciate the size and beau
ty of this institution, which is bringing an immense business
to our city, such as is little appreciated by most of our peo
ple. Simanton and Pence have continued to improve and
enlarge until they have one of the best equipped green
houses in the state. They do a large wholesale business.
Their trade in Falls City is only a small part of the business
this firm actually does.
Simanton and Pence are enterprising business men. They
are constantly on the watch for better things and the new
est methods of plant culture. Just now they are planning to
extend and improve their plant. They are not afxaid to
launch out into new fields of endeavor and to undertake ex
tensive experiments with a view of improving their prod
ucts or of increasing their output.
A well conducted greenhouse in any community means more
to the community than just so much business as is being trans
acted. It is a center of education and culture. Few things
have such a refining influence as flowers. Simanton and
Pence are doing a noble work by cultivating a love for the
beautiful as it is found in plants and growing things.
THE POWER OF THE SALOON.
It’s a stolen power. A power greater even than that ol the
corporation and the trust. There are, in hte state ol Nebraska,
more than a thousand saloons. Every saloon is a campaigning
field for the liquor interests and thcliquor vote. Every day, 11n*
saloon is the scene of one colossal political rally, and the votes are
transformed and remoulded and stacked in a -heap ot glittering
promise, to the man whose love for liquor is greater than his love
of state. The saloon is fast becoming a domineering factor in
state polities. Non-par^isian itself, it deals in politics as a board
of trade speculation. It. buys a block of democracy and the demo
cratic- leaders promise the delivery of that block on election day.
The saloon machinery is the cleverest bit of political manipu
lation in the state. It buys back a man's vote with his own gold,
knowing that the gold will not stay long with the man whose
thirst is greater than his principle (
Sheldon was beaten bythc saloon. Bryan was downed by the
same element, and it looks as though Shallenberger might suffer
the same humiliation. And these are men greater than men of
their time and party, but as it would seem, not greater than the sa
loon and its power.—The Blaine County Booster.
