W. H. WYLER,
Editor and Manager,
It has come to us within the past i
few days that The Tribune and The j
Journal had consilidated. Just who
the Joker is who started the report
is unknown to us but it is erroneous.
So far as the Tribune is concerned 1
there is not a particle of truth in
the statement. It has always been j
able to paddle Its own canoe and ,
will continue to do so. If ever a
change in management is made it will
bo given to the public in ample time,
through The Tribune columns and
coming from any other source it may
• * *
With the passing ot theyear, much I
of wiiat has been of use and service'
in the upbuilding ofThoTribuuo must
also pass. The day has come when
the situation will permit laying great
crempliasls than was possible here
tofore upon quality. Falls City lias
enteredupoimncwei'Hof social and in
dustrial progress. All her institu
tions which cater to the public good
ought to so plan for the future as
lo add and not detract from this
general forward tendency. However,
only progress based on merit is worth
while and will ho permanent. The
Tribune is unalterably opposed to
shams and pretense. The product
of tiiis office must stand or fall on
Its merit. The quality of our news
must pass muster. Our subscrip
tion list is being brought within the
requirements of the postal depart
ment. at Washington as rapidly as pos
slide. To do tills Is exp ulsive, and
wo must urge that our subscribers
come to our help and settle now and
avod the Inecessity and annoyance of
carrying the old a counts over into
the new year.
Falls City Commercial Review.
L. M. Carptmtcr of Kansas City,
accompanied bj Mm. rowan, have
been engaged for a bom a month in
compiling and publishing a Coumier
oreial Review of Kails City. Tin
printing contract was let to this of
fice after careful consideration, and
the work was finished Monday. The
publication consists of sixteen large
pages and cover, in colors, making a
very neat and attractive appearance.
Profusely illustrated with photographs
of the interesting spots in town,
views of the new Missouri Pacific
buildings, portraits of some of our
enterprising business men, and in
terspersed with choice reading mat
ter. written in a happy style that
seems characteristic of Mr. Carpen
ter, tile work is one of Interest t<> all
Most towns are overrun with fake
advertisers men who corner all the
available cash they can lay their
hands on, and depart, leaving a very
bad taste in the mouth. This class
of people do more harm than good,
yet many times men will spend good
ly sums with them, and turn down
. the local newspaper, which lias given
freely of its space fort lie benefit of
the town. A work like the one is
sued by Mr. Carpenter, however, is
of real and lasting service to a town.
These reviews will be scatter
ed broadcast and will advertise Vails
City to a wonderful extent.
The Tribune has secured the bnl
ace of the edition, and would be
pleased to have those interested call
and get a copy. Send one to your
friends in other parts of the state,
of "back east,” and in this manner
advertise your home town. We make
no charge for the copies, but the
edition is Utilised, and will doubtless
bo completely exhausted in a few
days. So call at once.

FUTURE POSSIBILITIES OF THIS
(Taken from the Commercial Review)
A powerful attraction to business
enterprise and new commercial pro
jects in Falls City and Richardson
County consists in the fact that, this
section has not yet had its full de
velopment. The fact that it has still
to grow offers the largest possible
Invitation for business to come in and
grew up with it.
By its condition of vigorous devel
opment, this section presents a com
pelling contrast to other sections.
New concerns are less drawn to other,
parts by reason of the fact that they j
arc more fully developed and do not
offer the advantages that this sec
tion does. New concerns entering
then are necessarily limited in outloo
and must compete for business now
enjoyed by other concerns.
With an unlimited agricultural field
behind It, Kalla City looks Into a fu
turo greatness. A half century’s nidi
cul progress will scarcely realize 01 |
attain its logical possibilities ol
growth as the focus of the vast de
velopmental forces at work; forcei
which naturally concentrate upon tin J
upbuilding of Falls City. The sec
tion commercially trlbutory to this
city Is the principal scene of Indus j
trial advancement today and bids'
fair to continue so until that great'
territory lias been brought at least to j
the industrial plane of New lSngland
and middle western territory, which
it surpasses in natural productive
This section has become a wonder
In tlie commercial world. Tile growth j
of a town is more than an incident
or a condition of morchantlle enter
prise It springs from vitality. The
growing condition of Southeast No
braska will carry legitimate business
along with it. It may be called "A
business momentum’' tinerpialled any
where. A business will come nearer
"Ktinuing Itself" in this section than
In any other section we know. The
facts are well worth the considera
tion of men who contemplate the or
ganization of new concerns or the
moving of old ones.
THERE !S NO PLACE LIKE HOME j
To buy anything you need in any
line. Homo Trading is the secret off
the success of all communities. We
have laid forth upon the boundless
commercial, industrial and general re
sources of Falls City, but in order to ;
make your locality the busiest town
in this section and the most desirabh
to live in, It 1 sessential that tin
wealth of the entire community shall
h ■ kept circulate d within its bound •
SHOPS AND SHOP KEEPERS.
The desirability of a locality as a |
homo depends largely upon the char
acter of its shop and shop-keeper.
No one can find much comfort in a
town, where tho necessaries of life
are not within reach, and therefore,
high class shops and shop-keepers, do ^
much to draw people into a locality
and develop it. In many eases the
merchants are pioneers, going Into
new districts, staking their energies
and capital in building it up. Most
of tlie wonderful development of Falls
City may he credited to the business
iiii'ii and women of the section, who
have either instigated or loyally sup
ported every movement that would
benefit the commercial or social in
terests of the community. The mer
cantile establishments conducted by
these gentlemen equal and in many
eases surpass those found in other
handsome appointments of the stores
and the artistic display of the mer
chandise. Attractive show windows
line and beautify the principal
thoroughfares and are much in evi
dence throughout the city. The mer
chants of Falls City are, as a whole,
a representative body of men and
women; each of whom is a master
of his particular Hue, striving te enter
in tho best way to his or her trade.
That they succeed is evidenced by
the great volume of business done in
I the territory. It is to these public
J spirited men and women that thanks
| are due for making this work possible
i and tho compiler desires to expren
Ills sincere appreciation of the cour
teous people who have so generously
• assisted him in this effort.

SCIENCE IN GROWING CORN
Requires Great Deal of Labor, but
Farmtr Is Repaid by the In
(Hy ( HAH. K. PBTKH8KN.)
The testing of seed corn Is very Ini•
portunt this spring. Not in many1
years has the question so closely ap 1
pealed to the farmer as It does now.
Much of the seed corn saved In the 1
corn belt states for this season's plant 1
Ing is showing low germination and!
better cultivation than ever will be
necessary to produce a big crop.
A good seed bed is the foundation!
of the crop, or rather the first ston -1
upon the real foundation, the seed.
Presuming that the corn ground Is in
proper rotation and sutllciently man
ured. It should be worked up as mel
low as a garden bed. If stalks are on
the ground they should be disked both
ways, the rollers being ground sharp,
then follow with a spading disk, ant!
work the soil thoroughly four or five
If Is hardly possible to spend toe
much time In preparing the ground
It should he disked three times each
way, making six workings before
When stalks are plowed under a
good plan is to harrow tlrst then plow,
then harrow again and plant.
The harrow should follow the plow
closely and all plowed ground should
h>> finished every noon and night.
Another good preparation is tu disk I
the ground four times, using a spader ;
the first time and an ordinary disk a'
week later. Then harrow the land
after each double disking and plant
close after the harrow. Howe the Il
linois man says that after several
years' experience he prefers disking
to plowing. Of course sod ground
must be plowed.
It la also important to use the right
kind of a corn planter—use an edge
drop planter or one that will drop the
exact number of kernels for which it,
Is set !I0 times out of 100. It should
even do better than that, if the seed
has been carefully sorted according
to size to tit the holes In the different
plates. This Is the only way to get
an even stand of corn. An even stand
from good seed la the only way to
grow a profitable crop.
Test the planter well before taking
It to the Held. Do not spoil a lot of
ground and waste u lot of seed trying
to find out whether your planter is
reliable or not.
USEFUL IN HEATING WATER
In Hog-Killing Time Device Shown in
Illustration Is of Greatest Value
A crane is very useful In heating
water during h ,■ -killing time, or when
ever a kettle ite be suspended over
a lire. Set ft heavy post firmly into
the ground, tamping in a shovelful of
course gravel or stone and attach a
bar of iron at the proper distance

! from the ground.
Some Fertilizers Injure Celery.
It !s popularly believed that certain
fertilizers influence the disease of cel
ery known as black heart, and a series
of experiments was carried on at thn
Florida experiment station, in which
3t5 formulas of fertilizers were tested.
] Flats receiving nitrate of soda and
i kainit were uniformly severely at
tacked by the disease, and those plats
' which received fertilizers consisting
! of bone meal, fish scrap and high
: grade sulphate of potash gave best re
Care of New Lawn.
I All new lawns should be covered
I with well rotted manure or other com
i mercial fertilizer late in the fall. Five
hundred pounds of the latter to the
acre Is a good proportion. Some gar
deners think that the use of stable
manure encourages weeds.
Fertilizers for Fruit.
Commercial fertilizers rich In pot
ash Is needed for fruit trees; it
strengthens and builds up the wood and
adds flavor to the fruit. When they get
strong and vigorous apply nitrate of
soda in the early spring.
Its superiority is unquestioned
Its fame world-wide
Its use a protection and a guarantee
against alum food
The low-grade powders are made from “ phosphate alum," or 44 sodium alumi
num sulphate," which is also alum, a mineral acid, and that makes the food unhealthful.
One pound of the imitation (25c.) powders contains five ounces of alum, a

The continued use of alum made food impairs digestion, causing dyspepsia.
The careful housewife when buying baking powder, will examine the label and take
only a brand whose label shows the powder to be made from cream ot tartar.

For Eastern. Southern and Foreign Markets j
As 1 lmve bought and owned more horses and mules in the last twenty years than any |
other one country buyer in Knvopc or America, and as I buy horses and inn I s for eight or ten |
different markets, I can pay you more money than any other moil in Aim- ica for any kind
of a horse or a mule you have for salt1.
Falls City, Saturday, Dec. 31
Now if you have an extra draft horse, trotter or pacer, elumk or southern horse, dont sell ]
them until you show them to me. 1 want mules from fourteen hands high to as big as they I
grow. I want them from three to ten years old. I’m coming to buy not to look. ;
