FOR COUNTY SUPERINTENDENT. A. E. Falch is a Republican Candidate For That Position. Andrew E. Falch, of the town of Grand Rapids, who has been teacher at the Howe high school and assistant to the city superintendent of schools in Grand Rapids, has been urged by many of his friends to become a candi date for the superintendent of schools in Wood county. He has carefully canvassed the situation and hereby presents himself a candidate for said office subject to the action of the Republican county convention. W T e therefore present him to the people of this county and hope he will receive favorable consideration. We append herewith a cut of Mr. Falch and a short description of his qualifications for the position. Andrew E. Falch attended the dis trict school at Wood Lake, Wis., until he was twelve years old. Being de sirous of obtaining a college educa tion, at his own expense, he went to Minneapolis. Minn., in October, 1888. Here he secured employment as errand boy in an office. A few months later an opportunity was offered to enter a printing office, and he then resolved to learn the printer’s trade. He worked steadily as a printer three years and in 1891 became foreman of a newspaper in Ironwood, Mich. By devoting his spare hours to study and attending evening schools, he was prepared to enter the North Wiscon sin academy at Ashland, Wis., in 1892. He made his way at the academy largely by setting type and reporting for the Ashland papers: he also taught school one year. He was graduated in 1890, and, after teaching one more year, entered Beloit College in the fall of 1897. During the four years at college Mr. Falch more than earned his way, the trade he had learned being often a great help. In 1901 he was graduated from Beloit College with the degree of Bachelor of Arts. The recommendations he holds from the president and professors of the college testify that Mr. Falch was always an earnest and faithful student. Since graduation he has secured a life state certificate from the state superintendent of schools. Mr. Falch has always been interest ed in literary work and athletics. During his school career he was editor one year of a school publication, took part often as member of debating teams and won several first places in oratorical contests. He also found time to manage and participate in foot ball and track meets. While in school Mr. Falch paid special attention to the study of Ger man, this being the language of his father. Mr. Falch speaks Norwegian and Swedish fluently. His success as a teacher in the schools of Grand Rapids is in a mca- “Another Demonstration of what Cash Buying can Accomplish.”—Spafford.

ESTABLISHED 1857. sure shown by what Supt. Hambrecht says of him: “Mr. Falch has proven himself a marker! success and given excellent satisfaction as a teacher. In fact we regard him as being one of the best teachers we have had for a number of years. His methods are practical and he gets the very best results from his pupils. Besides teaching, Mi. Falch has acted in the capacity of assistant to the city super intendent in which capacity he has shown good business sense and a re liability that was truly helpful. I have no hesitancy whatever in com mending him to any position requiring a good business sense and executive capacity. The Board of Education of Grand Rapids re-elected Mr. Falch as teacher in the city schools at an ad vance in salary.” We consider him well prepared for such a position, and the fact that he is acquainted with the German, Nor wegian and Swedish languages adds greatly to his titness for the place. His candidacy should receive favorable consideration at the hands of the Republicans throughout the county. —a- ii mm Words of Appreciation. The Municipality, for July, has the following to say concerning the Municipal League Convention held here last month: “The most successful and largely attended meeting in the history of the League occurred at Grand Rapids June 4 and 5. Cities from all parts of the state were represented and many cities sent several delegates. The attendance of delegates and other persons was more than one hundred. The city officers and people of Grand Rapids had prepared a splendid recep tion for the visiting city officers. Committees had evidently been at work upon a program of pleasure and instruction for all who came. The city was everywhere in gala attire. The delegates were met at the station with music and carriages and escorted to the hotel. The homes, business houses and streets every where presented evidence of an enthusiactic and hearty welcome. A most elaborate use of bunting and the national emblem was made which gave color to the city and to the occa sion. Several arches of electric lights were placed at conspicuous points and added a pleasing effect to the general decorations. The citizens had placed carriages at the disposal of the visitors in order that the city and Us environs might be more closely inspected. These trips were enjoyable features of the meeting. The city of Grand Rapids is situated at a point of the Wisconsin river which affords great water power and consequently has before it a great industrial future. Much of this power is still unutilized although several large paper factories are located near the city. These provided interesting points for visitors.” Burglary With a Moral Ending. Whether comic burglary is a power ful factor in making people be on their guard is a question. Mrs. Guy Getts thoroughly doubts this. Thursday afternoon Mrs. Getts returned to her home after a brief absence and found that many valuable articles had dis appeared. She then blamed herself for not being more careful in locking the doors, etc. After making a com plete investigation it seemed to be a case of clear and unqualified burglary. The matter was about to be reported to the police, when Mrs. Getts’ sister in-law appeared upon the scene. Everything was then explained—there had been no theft. The articles had been hidden to teach Mrs. Getts the value of always locking her doors when leaving her home. Farm For Sale.

The Long Distance Telephone and Telegraph Company has made appli cation to this city for a franchise to build a line connecting Grand Rapids with the main trunk line from Mil waukee to Minneapolis. If the franchise is granted the work will be begun at once and it is expected that the new service will go into effect within sixty days. D. F. Hall, a representative of the company, who was here last week, said that no local exchange would be put in as the com pany does only long distance business. The office of the new company will probably be in the rooms of the Wisconsin Telephone exchange. Schools to Open Soon. The opening of the city schools this year will occur on Monday, Sept. 1. This means that over one half of the summer vacation has passed, and soon the boys and girls will be hard at work again. The Board of Education has spent a great deal of money this year in making many necessary improvements in the different build ings and hope to have everything in readiness when the schools open this fall. of John Albee.

The test proved a success as only one little leak was found; this was quickly mended Mon day. As s6on as the* standpipe has been painted it will be turned over to the city for approval. The engineer in charge of the work says that Grand Rapids has now one of the largest and best standpipes in Wiscon sin. The standpipe reaches a height of 173 feet, is 26 feet in diameter and has a capacity of 150,000 gallons. It will cost about SII,OOO. The water mains are being thoroughly tested this week but it may yet be many weeks before the system wib be ready for general use.
