The following letter , which is self explanatory , will be of in terest to the many who have been awaiting1 the outcome of the experiments : SALKM , NEB. , March 4. FALLS CITY THIBUNB , Falls City Neb. Sms : The hogs which were treated by the expert from Ames , Iowa , under the direc tion of the department of agri culture at Washington , have de veloped the following facts : Eight healthy hogs were bought and placed in the lot with seven sick ones on Feb ruary 23 , four of the well hogs were treated and four were not. Six of the seven hogs died in forty-eight hours and one is still living. On March 3 one un treated hog died and the other three are very sick. The treat ed hogs are well. I believe the same will all live and the un- freated ones will all die. Yours truly , R. E. GRINSTCAD. Library Notes. The Library board met in the council rooms Tuesday evening , to transact business for January and February. The usual num ber of bills were allowed and the librarian's reports for the two months accepted. The record for Februar } ' shows an attend ance of 2147 persons , and a circu lation of 2200 volumes , 28 per cent of which were non-fiction. 173 cards have been issued since the first of the year. Through the kindness of E. M. Pollard the Library is receiving a number of valuable books and pamphlets from the government printing office. These will be classified and placed in easy ac cess to the public so that the vast amount of information in them may be of use. FtaecfTb A man who claimed to be from Napier , Mo. , persisted in making himself obnoxious to a number of ladies on the street Saturday eve ning but finally got what was coming to him when the hus band of one of the ladies handed him an uppercut which put him out of business for a time. He landed in police court Mon day morning when Judge Sprag- ins fined him $10 for his offense. There has been too much of this kind of business going on in our city for sometime , and per haps the dose given this man will be a lesson to others , and make it possible for ladies to been on the street in the evening with out being molested. Save Your Old Clothes As house cleaning time approaches preaches the humane officer de sires us to call attention of the good house wives to the fact that there are many people in our city who will be glad to get their cast off clothing , so in your spring clean up when you come across anything that you do not care for but which can be used by these less fortunate ones , just lay it aside and notify C. Hershey and he will call for it , or send same to the humane headquarters over Hargrave's stoic. A Big Success That the young ladies of the Episcopal church are a success when it comes to running electric theaters was proven Monday night when they realized about $28 from the receipts of that en tertainment in this city.

They feel greatly indebted to the gentle men for thus making it possible to add such a neat sum to their treasury.

Ramel was born DC ccmbcr 8th , 1836 , in Tuscarawas County , Ohio , in which stale he continued to reside for nearly 30 years. In December , 1858 , he was married to Miss Barbara Bremer , and six years later he moved to Chicago , and in 1865 he came to Falls City with his wife and little children where they made their home for two years , and then moved onto their farm south of Vcrdon , where they both resided until the great reaper came and took them away. Mrs. Ramel died about 20 years ago. Of this happy union there were born eight children , 5 sons and 3 daughters , all of whom arc still living but one son. In the year 1889 Mr. Ramel was married to Mrs. Mary Hen derson of Lenox , Iowa , who sur vives his death , and with the large family of children , mourns the loss of a good husband and father. The family is large for there are remaining 26 grand children and one great grandson. In early life Mr. Ramel united with the Moravian church and later with the Cumberland Pres byterian church in which faith and church he died. For the past year his health has been only very poor , and the last two weeks he was confined to his bed , yet amid his great suffer ings , maintained a patient Chris tian spirit , and awaited the call of his Master. The funeral service was held at the family residence and was conducted by Rev. Bailey last Saturday morning at 10 o'clock- and the interment was in the Steele cemetery. A large throng of people at tended the service at the home , and a long procession of carriages followed to the cemetery at Falls City. W. C. T. I ) . News. "Falls City's going dry. " Say it , sing it , work for it , pray for it , believe it. This assertion sounds good as it is passed hun dreds of times per day from lip to lip. No such show ol enthu siasm has taken hold of Falls City in years as has lately set tled upon it in the cloud of ex pressed conviction that the sa loon has had its day in Falls City. The pleas of the saloon keepers are especially touching as they recount how obedient and law abiding they have been. There are but few voices lifted in their defense , however , and it has become about as unpopular - lar to defend thesaloon as Abra ham Lincoln declared it was uncustomary for. a man to wear his wife's bonnet. Meantime every man , woman and child that has the good of Falls City at heart and can throw an atom of inlluence into the campaign ought not by all they hold dear fail to do it. We wish a mighty shout would be sounded from High school to depots , and from the cast to the west , a long , loud shout in unison by every Christian man , woman and child , and though the enemy cry peace , peace , that there would be no peace until the final victors shout and our beloved city is free from more than hu man slavery , for it is both body and soul. We have faith to be lieve that the Lord hears our cry and "that the mighty vol ume ot prayer that is daily as cending will be answered , But voters , it is for you to say what Falls City shall be. We W. 0. T. U. can only pray. Contrib uted. Society News.

A Correction I desire to correct an error made in publishing the proceedings of the county board a short time ago , in which it appears that Joseph Glasser had drawn $415 for his services for the year l'J07. This should haye been $2')0.05 as is shown by the records in my office. Since the question of salaries has caused considerate comment this statement is made to correct the wrong impression given in this matter. J. II. HUTCHINGS , County Clerk.
