THE FALLS CITY TRIBUNE.
. , , , , . ' Number i5
Vol. V FALLS CITY NEBRASKA FRIDAY HAY i 1908.
A Pleasant Surprise.
Kev Neide and wife were th
victims of a most pleasant sui
prise on last Thursday evenin ;
w hen the members o f S 1
Thomas church took possessio
of their home and proceeded t
manage things to their likiny
It was all done so quietly am
with so little ceremony that th
reverend and his wiie did no
realize what had happened uu
til after the crowd had departei
and an inventory was taken o
the good things they had left a
tokens or the appreciation o
the good work he is accomplish
ing in this parish , and of th
splendid Easter services he hai
given them.
Old Pete is Dead
Pcte the faithful old hors
which "has done service on the dc
livery wagon for Billy Moss fc
so many years , died last Friday
and now Billy is mourning th
loss of one of the best horses eve
known.
For twenty years Pete hitche
to the delivery wagon and stand
ing on the corners has been
familiar figure to our people , wh
will miss him almost as much a
does his master.
In the meantime Billy is lool <
ing around for another horse bu
thinks he will be hard to pleas
as in his estimation there is oul
one Pete.
Let's Have a Ball Team.
Is Falls City to have a bai
team this season is the all absorl
ing question. When we conside
the fact that nearly every littl
village and hamlet around us ar
playing bafl , it seems too ba
that a town the size of Falls Cit
does not waken up to the imporl
ance of a ball team.
Realizing the good derived froi
such an advertisement , we unclci
stand that one of our merchant
has volunteered to uniform
team , and if it is a good advei
tisement for a business firm wh
would it not be good for th
town ? It would be , and with th
splendid material at hand it woul
be an easy matter to organize
winner , and thus furnish amuse
ment to our lovers of the sport a
well as keep our town before th
people.
Here's to Tommy Glines.Poteel
Heacock , Cornell , Scars , HecV
Ruegge , Meyers. Messier and th
rest of our old stars get busy.
A Law Suit Between Two Scho (
Districts.
It is seldom that the Count
Court is the scene of a law sui
between two school districts
but on Monday , of this week ,
judgment for $116.0 J was obtain
ed by school district No. fl
against district No. 97.
It seems that on February /
1905 , fohn Findlay , treasurer c
district No. 97 , presented a
order on the county treasure ]
Mr. Zook. tor $100.05 and recen
ed that sum in payment. B
mistake the amount paid wa
charged against district No. Q.
although district No. 97 got tb
money.
As soon as district No , C
learned of the mistake its treai
urer made demand on distric
No. 97 for the repayment of tl :
money , but district No. 97 seen
ed to wish to cling to the mone ;
After exhausting all oth <
means , the matter was place
in the hands of attorney JoL
Wiltse , and judgment for $11C
00 obtained.

The Elks held a very interesl
ing and busy session at the regt
lar meeting on Friday evening
when three new members wer
made acquainted with the secret
of the order. The victims wer
Bert Harris of Stella and Chestc
Fisher and Dan Sullivan of thi
city. The goat was in good trii
iml showed the candidates
merry time , but they were equate
to the occasion and are figurini
on the good time they can hav
with the next fellow.
Didn't Know it was Loaded.
The Tribune last week put
lished a signed article at the re
quest of Mr. Dan Sullivan tha
subsequent events show to hav
been loaded.
If there be any misunderstand
ing between Mr. Sullivan an
Jerry Kanaly we desire no pai
in it , nor would we have publishc
the article had we known any re
flection on Mr. Kanaly was in
tended. Both of these gentle
men are well and favorably know
to our people and the Tribune re
grets the unpleasantness and es
aecially that we have unknowing
y reflected upon one of our bes
citizens.

The Tribune has been unabl

brooder for the night when th

frightfully that death follows

Mrs. Margrave leaves tw
children , one a baby , and he

TRIBUNE joins a host of friend
in tendering sympathy to th
stricken family.

As to Paving.
The question of paving Ston
street has often been thought o
and talked of in this city , bu
never until now had any rea
effort ever been made to lear ;
the sentiment of the propert ;
owners. This week , however
C. H. Heineman made a persona
canvass of Stone street , inter
viewing each property owne
on the three blocks from WahP
store to the Union House , am
without a single exception al
were ready and willing to pa
the cost of paving along thei
property. Enough cannot b
said of the good to be derive
from paving Stone street , an
now that Mr. Heinernan ha
started the ball to rolling le
each one give it a push. Wit
the hearty co-operation of al
there is no reason wlijr this in
provement cannot be brougli
about with scarcely an efforl
Don't leave it all with Mr. Ileiiu
man , who is more than willin
to do his share , but let ever )
body get busy before the knocl
ers get their hammers in shap
to kill this much needed improve
ment , as they have so man
good things in the past.
