THE FALLS CITY TRIBUNE.
Vol. V FALLS CITY , NEBRASKA , FRIDAY , MARCH 27 , 1908. Number 10 Coming to the Front. Her many friends in this citv will be most pleased to hear of the brilliant success of Miss Edna Wentworth in her chosen profes sion , that of a singer. All knew she had talent and man ) ' had prophesied great things for her , but that she has forged to the front so quickly is hard to realize , as it seems such a short time since she was just a little girl going to school here. She is now the soprano singer with tjie Wentworth Concert Co. , under the management of the Metro politan Lyceum Bureau of Kansas City , and is creating a great sen sation wherever she appears. We only hope her route will bring her back to her old Falls City home among the man } ' who will be so glad to hear her sing again. Caught the Horse Thief. A horse was stolen last Sunday night from Mrs. Polly Button , who lives on a farm between Highland and White Cloud , Kas. , but the thief was not long at liberty , for in trying to escape made the mistake of heading for this place , where our officials , who get just about every one they go after- soon had him in charge. The facts in the matter are these : On Monday morning Mrs. F. Shields of this city received a telephone message from Mrs. Button , who is a relative , stating that a horse had been stolen from her the night before. She gave a description of the animal and requested our police to be on the lookout. Mr. Shields immediate- br > notified Officer Marts , who started at once to try and get a clew of the thief. In the mean time a man had appeared at the Mettz livery barn and tried to dispose of a horse. His actions aroused suspicion and Sheriff Fen- ton was sent for , who arrested the man , pending an investigation. When Mr. Marts appeared with his description of the horse , all doubt as to the man's guilt was removed , and the news was tele phoned back to Mrs. Button , who sent her son to identify the ani mal. mal.When When the man , who gave his name as Collins , was confronted by Button he confessed to the crime , saying he was drunk and went into the barn to lay down. He was smoking at the time , and the light from his pipe set fire to the barn. When he realized what he had done his only thought waste to escape , so he stole the horse. One horse was burned to death in the fire and another one so badly injured that it is thought it will have to be killed. About eleven tons of hay and a large amount of small grain was also consumed in the fire. When Mr. Button saw who the guilty party was he was greatly surprised , as they had been neigh bors for a long time , and comes from a well respected family , his father being a big land owner in that vicinity. Collins was taken to Troy , Kas. , Monday evening to await his trial. Marriage Record. Francis Smith , Verdon , . . 23 Elizabeth Nedrow , Verdonj . IS Lester A. Riggs , Kansas City , 23 Lydia C.

On last Sunday afternoon Jim Pelham and Miss Ollie Morton sustained injuries in a runaway from which it will take some time to recover. They were starting for a drive and just as Mr. Pelham was get ting in the buggy the team start ed to run , with the unfortunate man between the wheel and buggy box in such a manner that he was unable to loose himself and was dragged some distance , receiving a badly injured arm , numerous cuts about the head and face and otherwise hurt. The young lad } ' was thrown from the buggy and had the hip bone broken besides receiving other severe injuries. Br. Green was summoned and did all that was possible for the injured ones , but it is feared that the young lady will be confined to her bed for some time , while Mr. Pelham , who was more for tunate , will soon be himself again. While helping to moye a build ing on Monday afternoon in Sa lem , L. Albertson was severely hurt by n lever striking him under the chin. It was a close call , as the blow almost severed his jugu lar vein. A Close Call. W. W. Abbey is getting his a little sooner than he expected. While sweeping the back porch of his store Saturday morning some one threw an empty beer keg from above which just grazed his shoulder. Search was made on the roofs of both the Wahl and Reayis & Abbey's buildings but no one was in sight. It is thought that some one had been cele brating in the rooms up stairs the night before and threw the keg out of the window without the usual warning , "look out be low. " It was a narrow escape for had the keg struck him on the head it would undoubtedly have killed him. Died. CATKON.

Our Rule correspondent fur nishes the following report of the fatal shooting of Tom Mooney , on Sunday morning at his home near Rule : Sunday morning , about ten o'clock , news was brought to this city that a sad accident had hap pened at the home of Mr. James Mooney , sr. , in which his oldest son , Thomas Mooney , lost his life. An old gun had hung for years on the back porch , and it is supposed he attempted to take it down to examine it. as the gun was found hanging from the strap which supported it. No one saw the act and all he could say when his mother reached his side was. "I am shot. " Medical aid was summoned at once , but the fatal discharge had done its work too well for any earthly help to avail , and death came in a few minutes after the arrival of the physician This sad accident has almost pros trated the aged parents and was a great shock to all his relatives and friends. He was unmarried and resided with his parents about one and a half miles west of Rulo. Funeral services were held Tuesday forenoon at the Catholic church , after which the remains were laid to rest in the Catholic cemetery. He leaves a large circle of relatives , who have the sympathy of all in this sad hour. Interrupted Crap Game. Chief Beasley , while wander ing through the yards at the depot on Sunday , he happened on to a crap game indulged in by four Hiawatha citizens , three colored men and one white man.

Manshardt has been pas tor of the Evangelical church in this city four years , and in that time has endeared himself to the members of his congregation to such an extent that it is hard for .hem to give him up.

Manshardt in this city. The [ lolton conference retains Rev. tfanninga at his present charge east of this city. Will Make Pickles. The Leo Cider and Vinegar Co. lave decided to add pickle making to their other business in this city. They will buy all the cu cumbers that are brought to them this summer , and this should add quite a department to their fac tory , as well as to scatter quite a sum of money through the com munity to those who will raise cucumbers for them. Persons who expect to raise cucumbers for the factory should first get a sheet of instructions from the State Bank , telling them how to raise , pick and market them , to get the most out of them. Seed for choice varieties can also be had at the State Bank. It looks like this factory is des tined to become one of our most successful institutions. We un derstand that they are going to make some additional improve ments to handle the apple croj this fall , and will possibly put in two new cider presses. We arc glad to sec such an industry do so well , and wish that we had man ) more of other kinds with such ; promising future. * - Lenten Services.
