Falls City Wins The basket ball game at the Jenne Friday evening ; between Falls City and Tecumseh High schools , resulted in a victory ior our home boys by a score of 40 to 14. This was the last game of the .season and was fairly well attend ed. Our boys have made a good record this year having been de- featecl but a couple of times , and that at the beginning of the sea son , With such a record it is a i hard matter to get a game , so decided - cided to quit and give some one else a chance. * _ a fc _ _ Successful Hog Sale. The Wittrock-Wyatt.Rieshick Poland-China hog sale 5i this city Wednesday , drew a large crowd from the surrounding country. The stock brought good prices , the average being $25.50.

The librarian's report for the month ot January shows a cir culation of 2150 volumes , 25 per cent of which were non-fiction. There were 85 cards issued and 2300 visitors registered. The High school pupils have been learning the use of the Readers' Guide to Periodical Literature while hunting up material for their debates. Of ten the subjects are indexed for which the magazines are not in the library. If anyone who has saved old copies of Harpers' Weekly for 1903 , 1904 and 1905 to July 1 would make a dona tion to the library , they would be gratefully received. New books were received this week and will be put on the shelves as soon as possible. The fiction will be ready for circula tion Saturday. "Painting the Town , " One of the novel features of "Painting the Town , " presented under the management of Ohas. Yale , occurs in the second act. The scene represents the stage of the Folie Music hall , it being the first night of an operatic production , the opera being given with all the dignity and detail of grand opera. A num ber of laughable incidents oc cur , the explanation of which is impossible. This much , how ever , can be stated , that the au dience itself becomes a part ol the play and assists in working up a very funny portion of the performance. The company , which is unus ually large , has been most care fully selected , and among the artists are the famous team of comedians known in vaudeville as the "Ileadliners , Ilalliday and Leonard , " Mazie King , the comedienne and premiere danc er , Madeline Buckley , the Eu ropean troupe of dancers and a large male and female chorus.

Lyford of Falls City wants to know what the Exhibit thinks of his advertisement that is running in the Tribune of that town. The Exhibit thinks the ad Is a cracker-jack. It Is a double- page display and its a safe bet that every day since It appeared It has filled the Lyford store with customers who are looking for bargains that haVc good Value. "Ninth Annual Housekeepers' Sale" is about the right sized type and the line above , "Hello ! Mrs. Housekeeper" is catchy enough to attract and center atten tion. The measure used is good , as it divides the two pages Into evenly balanced sections. There Is just about enough largo typo to display and It does this without giving the advertisement the appearance of a show bill. By the way ! It would not bo out of place to state the Tribune has a mighty good printer In its office and at the same time the Tribune has an office that Manager Sharks ought to be proud of , for In addition to throwing up two pages for Mr. Lyford , he has set a dandy half page display for Samuel Wahl , a half page for Matthews , the "Price Killer , " and a half dozen smaller ads. To do all of this , he docs not seem to have run out of sorts or taxed the capacity of his office. " The above was taken from the Omaha Trade Review , a paper that every business man should take , and coming from the source from which it does Mr. Lyford and the Tribune should both feel very much pleased with its opinion of our efforts. Damaged By Fire The house occupied by Rev. Dunkleberger on the corner of Fifth and Lane streets , was greatly damaged by fire Monday morning about 11:30. : The fire started from a defective Hue and was not discovered until it had gained great headway , the roof being a mass of ilames. A crowd soon gathered and by their united efforts succeeded in removing all the household ef fects without a great amount of damage , other than by water. The firemen worked hard and in a short time had the fire under control , but not until the roof was almost completely burned away and the upper story greatly damaged. The house , is owned by Mrs. Fisher , a widow lady living in the country. We understand the loss is fully covered by insurance , and that it will be remodeled at once. In the meantime Mr. Dunkle berger and family will occupy the house on the corner of Fourth and Lane Streets until their for mer home is repaired. The wise man protects himself against fire by having reliable Insurance. Why not you ? Your home may burn next . See us at once , before it is too late. It costs but little. CLKAVKH & Sinoi.n , Dist.

Grinstcad was down from balem Tuesday and favored this office with a call. Mr. Grinstcad tells us that his hogs are afflicted with the cholera and that in answer to a correspondence with Congressman Pollard , the Gov ernment has agreed to send an expert from Washington to co operate with Dr. Peters of the State Agricultural Institution , that together they will give the Government's treatment a thor ough test upon Mr. Grinstead's herd and also those of some of his neighbors. The Government's treatment for hog cholera , it is claimed , is meeting with phenomenal success. Sniisage In Her Stockings. A young Bohemian woman who works in the sausage de partment of the Swift packing plant of Kansas City was sus pected of taking sausage from the plant and was stopped as she started home from work recently by a police officer of the company. She was taken to the matron's room and searched. The young woman had between - tween six and seven pounds of sausage in her stockings. After a lecture she was allowed to o , Ex. How Is This For High ? One of the interesting speci mens on display at the Farmers' institute last week was a stalk of corn raised by John Rieschick which measured twelve feet and three inches in height and 8 feet to the ear of corn. This is the kind we raise in Nebraska , and need the step ladder to gather it. Bought New Home. On Monday of this week a deal was made whereby Dr. C. N.

Clancy Again In Court Michael Clancy of Dawson who seems to feel in duty bound to cause trouble at stated intervals , was again before Justice Spragins on Monday morning. The trouble this time grew out of his inhuman treatment of his live stock.
