VOLUME I FALLS CITY , NEBRASKA , FRIDAY , SEPTEMBER 23 , 1904. NUMBER 38
trhi ; : ) paper has been given
credit for entertaining a desire to
- jolt the " "country attorney. " This
impression is erroneous. We
want to - print matters of public
in ercst. Last week however in
. , 't1 c court note we stated the fact
" ; hat the case of the State of Ne-
.braslm vs Ida Pool had been dismissed -
missed by the county attorney.
, This is an outrage. This woman
1i I I . beat a defenseless little boy over
. , .
the head with a stick until he
I was horribly mutilated. The doc-
, . . torwas called sometime ( several
days ) afterward and he found the
little fellow with his face flushed
l a with fever and suffering terribly
I from great superating gashes on
his head. He said that he had
fallen out of a hay 10ft. The
I doctor knew this was untrue , and
, finally , under a promise to give
the little chap some candy , secured -
. cured the truth upon his promise
not to tell the boys step sister ,
. " $ ' Ida Pool. "She hit me , " moan-
I ed.thc.little fellow , "she Hit me
with a stick until I went to sleep.
I tried to get her to stop but she
wouldn't. Don't tell her I told
you.t.r ev washed the blood off
of my head. They were doing it
. . when I woke up in bed. ] ) on't
} \ ' tell her I told you , she will give
I , .
'I ' me a suit of clothes If I don't
1ft. tell. " But the outraged doctor
'i ' told and the indignant citizens
I filed a complaint and the country
t attorney dismissed the case. Ida
, Pool can beat any child she
' wants to for there arc no crimi-
, ' " nal laws to be enforced in the
t . ' . ' county. For two years 'young
Martin has drawn his salary as

MISSED : : EVERY DISTRICT COURT
CASE. His father was telephoned
by citizens of Dawson and asked
\ to keep his son from dismissing
! this case and he promised to do
i so. How long-Oh Lord , how
. ' " , long.
. Since the above was written
! ' the indignant citizens of Dawson
3 have had the woman re-arrested
I . and have employed an attorney
\ ' out of their own pockets to pros-
( l r I cute her.

I : . District Court.
Judge A. H. Babcock commec-
ed court : Monday evening. The
I first thing to be heard was a request -
quest signed by certain attor-
neys that the court adjourned
and the jury be dismissed because
i " , . I of ill feeling among some of the
; ; ( lawyers. Other attorneys pro-
tested against an adjourn men t
stating that litigants should not
be deprived of a trial because one
lawyer didn't like another. Judge
Babcock took the matter under
advisement and adjourned court
until the following morniti'g.
When court convened in the
morning the demurrer in Atwood
V8 the The Falls City Telephone
Co. , was argued as well as a mo-
tion in Beep vs the Humboldt
National 'Jank. Both matters
were taken under advisement by
the court. On request of the
prosecuting witness the case of
the State vs Moore was dismissed.
Judge Babcock then adjourned
court until next Monday at which
time the jury cases ready for trial
will be heard.
One of the saddest events The
Tribune has ever chronicled is
the death of June Mussleman
which occured Tuesday night.
June Musselman was the eldest
child of Mr. and Mrs , Norman
Musselman and was just approaching -
preaching her sevententh year.
She had been ill with Typhoid
fever for several weeks and her
strength gradually waned under
the ravages of the disease.
Miss June was a beautiful
young lady and one of rare accomplishments -
complishments for her years.
She was loved by all who knew
her and her death has thrown a
pall over the entire city. We
know that words are empty un-
der such circumstance ! that noth-
ing can lesson the terrible grief
of parents who have suffered the
loss of a beautiful daughter , but
death has been reaping the flow-
ers along with the grain from
the beginning and parents have
been bereaved from the time in
the garden. This city extends
to Mr. and Mrs. Musselman its
heartfelt sympathy and says
with them "we cannot under-
stand. " i
The funeral services were con-
ducted from the house yesterday
afternoon-at 2:30 : and the remains
taken to the Steele Cemetery.
The Roosevelt club met in the
court house Tuesday evening to
perfect arrangements for the
A small crowd was in attend-
ance. The various committees
reported and new committee were
appointed. The next meeting of
the club win be Monday evening
at which time all republicans are
urged to attend. /
Engine No . 1225 , one of the
M. P. large battleships was ' de-
railed Wednesday afternoon
while switching the local yards.
Only the engine and tender
were off the track owing to the "
fact that the train was moving
slowly at the timeof the accident.
