The old year is fas drtawlng to a close, and it is quite fitting that with the (losing of the year old differenc es and accounts be closed also. The Tribune is putting forth strenous ef forts to get tin' old books balanced. Their are several reasons for this. During the past year the personal; of the Tribune office lma undergone many changes. Necessarily this lias given cause for changes in policy and method, and a general readjustment of business relations. Kvery beginning lias iih cmneuiues and the matter of finnnees is one of tlie most serious. The office needs the money tlint is outstanding. II is needed to maintain the integrity of I the business and for Improvements. Our friends ami well-wishers will be glad to contribute their part to*help ( an y this work forward successfully. Then wo have a notion that Nebras Kaus appreciate and enjoy most, wha I they have already paid for. We are meanly selfish enough to wish our subscribers all I bo possible good they can get out of the Tribunp. There fore for their sukos as well as our own we urge the advisability of the prompt settlement of subscription du es. It Is only a small matter for each subscriber to meet bis portion, but it amounts to a living with us. It is the Commissary Department of our fighting force.. And when subscrip tions delay the outcome of our work is jeopardized. This may only be a foolish fancy, nevertblcss the present management is ambitious of establishing a 'one price' print shop in Falls City. That it, one rate for all. and special con cessions to none. We are not blind to the ugly fact that our efforts thus far to do "the square deal" have lost us valued patronage. However, we shall fight for the integrity of our rates and have assurance that all fair minded citizens are with us. Merchants advertising in the Tri bune will prefer to find their trade with the pay-as-you-go people. It is a reasonable conclusion that the per son who neglects bis subscription bill will neglect other bills. we loei that wt^aro doing our ad vcrtising patrons a service in weed ing out delinquent subscribers and it should be some satisfaction for the dealer to know that he is not adver tising for undesirable customers. We desire to bring our mailing lisl strictly up to the requirements of the IT. S. postal laws when they iusisi only legitimate subscribers are eulil led to receive papers at second clasi rates. A legitimate subscriber is om who pays regularly. While tlie Tribune is sturdily tug King at the yoke, will the good citi zens not lay to occasionally and hell jolt the car of public progress for ward a pace or two. Do it now am do it again. THE SANTA FE BARS CIGARETTE The Santa Fe R. R. Company hn sent notice to all its employees tha they no longer desire the service o men who persist in smoking cigarette With the beginning of December tin order became effective, already a nu mber of men have felt its effects anc received their discharge. And for in other reason than that they persisted iii their right to smoke the coffin i nails. The company does not feel ' that it can compell a man to quit smoking, but they do know that they I can dispense with his service, and that to good advantage When one of the big railroads of the country takes such a radical ac tion it is time for common people to take notice. They have learned that smoking unfits a man for the trying duties of rail reading. It beclouds Ills mind, his eye is neither clear or quick and sure, his nerves want stead Iness and the whole man lacks that indlsponslhle quality called tlependa blenesH. Hereafter boys on the San ta Ke must, cut the “nails" or lose their Jobs. Which? MRS. MARY BAKER G. EDDY. Mrs. Mary Baker G. Eddy lias at last sueoumed to what members of her faith call error—or speaking plainly death. Though a frail wom an all Ilia- life, she has reached a ripe old age and retained her powers of mind to the last. She was truly a re markable woman, and succeeded in stamping her personality upon a movement that has become world wide. However wo may differ from her in belief, we must honor and res pect her for what she has accom plished. She had the ability of the true leader, ami was not only able to gather followers about her and com mand their willing service hut what is more difficult, she was able to hold them to the end. There arc I i thousands of Christian Scientists who all but worship her. Now that she j is dead and no longer the guiding j genius of the church, her followers1 will be fare to face with a new era in their organization. * * * The High School entertainment course is meeting with much favor with the citizens of the town. The ( first two numbers have not only been j well attended but only complimentary comments are hoard from those who attended. We are glad of this. It not only insures the success of the course this year, but it also indicates the citizens of Falls City are able to appreciate good entertainnment and will support it. * * • The effort to give the fire boys some compensation for their work and especially for the losses they suf fered is to be commended and should receive generous support. • • • Read the President’s message on another page. It contains food for reflection. it is not for the primary purpose of pleasing and offers sugges tions that will keep congress busy un til spring. * * * Tims far the English elections have been goign in favor of the Liberals. It. is worthy of note, that when Par liment was unwilling or unable to pas needed legislation that august body was dissolved and on election called all within the short space of a few weeks. * * * The Tribune desires a correspond ent in each school district in the county. This offers an excellent op - poortunity for wide-awake boys and 1 girls to cultivate the art of diserim i inate correspondence. Send your name and address to The Tribune, • wo will give you the necessary in ■ structions. i Christian Church Notes.

Presbyterian Church Notes It was a matter of sincere regret to us that our splendid organ was put out of commission last Sunday owing to a break down at the garage where t tin- current for the motor is gen-1 erated. All is well again now and ' we expect a good day next Sabbath. | Tlie pastor will preach morning and \ evening and we will have special | music at each service. (in Thursday evening. Dee. 15, Dr. | Francis F. Tucker will deliver a splen did stcreoptican lecture in the First' Presbyterian church on “China, a Field of Opportunity.” Knowing Low thoroughly competent Dr. Tucker is by education and by experience litis lecture and these pictures will ap 1 peal to all. A small charge for admission will be made and the pfo | coeds given to the building fund of j the new church. You cannot afford j to miss this. — During the time ot' the exhibit of j Chinese and Japanese curios in the ; First Presbyterian church lately, a | number of people expressed a wish to buy some of the articles seen. I am i glad to say that the Drs. Tucker ; have now consented to put a display of these articles in the basepient of our church on Friday and Saturday, December 16 and 17 and offer for sale at preies that will make them sell fast. Furthermore, these good people will donate all the proceeds of this sale to the building fund of their new hospital in China. Therefore one will not only g et an opportunity to buy nice unique Christmas presents, but will also be helping to send the Christmas spirit to far away China where it is more needed.—R. Cooper Bailey, Pastor. Basket Ball. In iho basket ball gaum atTeeum seh last Friday night honors again fell to our girls' High School team. They clearly out-classed the Tec urn soli team and had things about their own way. The score was 41 to 6. All the girls played a fine game nad it would be almost an injustice to mention any individual play because good work was the order through out. The girls say the Tecumseh girls are good to play against. Die line up this year is as follows: Lucille Leyda, first center. Camille Leyda. second center; Florence Parch en, right forward; Bertha Stumbo left forwaard; Ituth Messier, right guard, Grace Reavis left guard; Con stance Lyford, substitute. The boys lost their first game of the season to the Teeumseh team, of 22 to 27. This is their first con test game and their team work w as not so strong as it should have been. Most of the players are new and in this game they found their weak places. But for all that they put. up a fine game and their score is a credit to them. The lineup is Robert Mason, center; George Apel, right guard; Robert lleck, lert guard; Frank Kanaly, left forward; Leon Norris, right forward; Jim Hutchings, substitute. There were three lively rooters! along in the persons of Frank j Reavis, Jr., Frank Gist and Phil Briggs, and they certainly rooted for' Falls City. i The teams were royally entertain-' ed by the Teeumseh young people and they enjoyed the trip immensely. FROM A PRACTICAL PAINTER. He Compliments Dr. Morsman On His Articles, Views Them as Practical. _ The following will show that Hr. Morsman’s paint articles arc read and appreciated by those who understand the necessary qualitf s and the use of good paint. We are pleased to give; the opinion to our readers. I have road with interest Dr. Mors man's articles on paints, oils, etc. His article relating to the mixing of a batch of paint is well wortli! some serious consideration by thej beginners or the would-be painters of today as they contain many valuable t hints as to the mixing and method of I application, but if the doctor will stop and consider he will remember that to those' who have kept in touch with tlie modern methods in house paints and painting these suggestions only serve to refresh our memories as to the facts as set forth, as we were called upon to deal with them ten or twelve years ago. As the writer of an experience of thirty-two years of house painting I can truly say to the amateur house painter, that the doctor lias given some ex cellent and practical advice which the beginner will profit to adopt to themselves and their patrons. How ever, permit me to say from experi ence that the use of driers is un known to me in house painting, tur pentine only in limited quantities on certain classes of work, the condi tions of the surface determining the amount required . In all of my ex perience I have never had one square foot of painted surface to chip, crack or peal. You ask how do I overcome it? Thus- plenty of brush ing, raw oil primer, very little lead, just enough to make a good filler. Don’t spare the brushing, brush wel on both coats; it pays. Don't hurry your work thereby slighting to your own and to your patrons detriment. Haste always causes waste. For pitch pine, hemlock, spruce, and all gummy woods each must, have a special treat ment as all surfaces differ. The up to-date house painter must be able to recognize these different conditions as he comes in contact with them, with as much skill as the family physician exhibits in coping with the different diseases which he is daily called upon to successfully treat. No one man has ever attained that posi tion whereby he can truly say, I an learn nothing more, as long as wo exist this little world in which we have lived remains to us unexplored only so far as life hs permitated us to forge our little way. There constantly appears before us new methods by which the same re sults may bo accomplished thereby simplifying the methods formerly pur ' y Alum in food must therefore act as a poison.” V Q ' 'jj —Prof. Johnson, Yale University. i Read the label.
