elected. When the case came on
for hearing C. F' . Rcavis appear-

Last Friday might a number of
Falls City Odd Fellows attended
the lodge at Salem and thereby
hangs a tale. They returned
about midnight and it seems that
Vet Simanton was plodding
thoughtfully . his way in the
direction of Sunnysic1e when his
attention was attracted by what
I
seemed to be the rapid discharge
of fr . ! arms ri rht clown in the
heart of the city. For a moment
1\lr. Simanton stood irr . solute and
then the firing increased in rapid-
ity and he imagined that all the
banks in the city was being rob-
bed simultaneously , or the prison-
ers in the county jail had muti-
nied , or in short , there wts
"something doing. " His desire
to be on the firing line where
bullets were , whistling merrilly ,
lead him to turn and advance at
double { quick , his pocket knife
open in his hand. When he
reached the business center of the
city he learned to his great disappointment -
appointment that the , explosions
were caused by the exhaust of the
gasoline engine in thc Tribune
office. He there upon beat an
orderly retreat and we don't
know exactly how the story
leaked out.
Mrs E. E. Haskins , accom-
panied by her sister , left Sunday
for Michigan in response to a
telegram announcing the serious
illness ! ? of their mother.
Mrs . Barbara Custer left Monday -
day for a visit with her daughter ,
\lrs. Robt. Norton , of Colorado
Springs.
John Oswald has been confined
to his home this week by an at-
tack of in.l1ammatory rhnematism.

The charge was made during _ JI ,
the late judicial campaign that ; ; .
the democratic party would re- .4
ward Mr. Martin : for hip service , . f
and the prediction has proven ; !
corn'ct. Concerning this appointment :
pointmettt true republicans will . 10
'
think that the reward is not too ' 1
' '
great for the services performed. ;
This late rcrwas certainly worthy 'J
of his hirc.

The appointment of a repuhli- '
' I
canstcnographer by a democratic , ;
judge , is , we believe , without ' ' .

precedent < in this or any other { ; '

district. There arc in this end
, . ' ,
of the district plenty of deserving
young democrats to whom this
'
appointment should logically 'I
have gone , and the fact that such
has not been its case cannot be ' .
swallowed b\ . the honest demo- t
crats . of the district without a n ; : : ii

The methods that were used to ' :
