And against a college team, too. Now wasn't that just too lovely, 46 to 32, whoop ’er up for Falls City High School girls, champions of state basket hall teams. The Cotner girls made a good score to start things but what they started was the spirit of determination in our girls to put a finish on them. They did. It was the hardest fought game of the season, but there lias not yet been a team present them selves who could stand up before the High Scool girls and the University girls had to acknowledge their super iors. That’s right, it takes good goods to beat Falls City. It was a contest worth seeing and the large audience was fair in their applause of good plays from both teams. There is no use denying it the girls worked, for the Uni. team had come down to win and had the team work to make tilings interesting. Hut with all the enthusiasm of the High School, yells and all. there was simply nothing to do but win. The Falls City Basket Ball girls are simp ly It, and we are proud of Our Champions.

They hust< ned to him only to find the deatli Angel had reached liis side first, and he was at rest. The remains were brought home on Friday night and the funeral preached by ltev. Ilrooks of Falls City, Sunday at 2 o'clock.p. in. A large crowd of old friends and neighbors came to pay their last respects to him, who had been one of them so long. The beautiful casket was covered with flowers, silent tribute of loving friends. Mr. Gilbert was a quiet un assuming man, who could count as friends all who knew him. To his family, ever kind, tender and thoughtful of their welfare, noth ing can ever fill his place to them. But may the thought that he is for ever at rest and knowledge of the happy lives they spent together, com fort them, and may the one who said, "I will be a husband to the widow and a father to the fatherless" bring them peace. The remains were tenderly laid in the Silent City, to await the resurrection morn. REYNOLDS. ' " . ... James It. Reynolds was born Oct. 11th, 1829. in Poughkeepsie county. New York.
