the German consul at Chicago for
a chart of the unoccupied govern

The supposition is that the consu
wants this chart for the purpose of
ascertaining the prospects for es
tablishing a German colony at some

entail a month's labor, the land
officers will not issue the same

The event was given in celebration
or tne fourteenth anniversary of
this excellent and rapidly growing
organization. E. B. Warner acted
as master of ceremonies, and as is
always the case, well performed the
duties incumbent upon him. The
programme rendered was an ex-
ceiient one, oemg as follows: Son"-
by C. F. Scharmann, address on
theK. O. T. M. by H. D. Rhea,
paper on the L. O. T. M. by Mrs.
Chas. Wood, a reading by Mrs.
Minnie Harvey, and a song by a
quartette composed of Miss White,
Mrs. Warner and Messrs. Redmond
and Warner. At the completion of
this programme the people sur
rounded the tables and partook of
icecream and cake. That this lat
ter event was appreciated may be
mierrea trom the fact that thirty
gallons of ice cream and a wagon
load of cake were consumed. These
refreshments were . contributed
jointly hy the K. O. T. M. and the
L. O. T. M.. the laffpr TMticr nlirmf
as closely identified with the enter
tainment as the former. The occa
sion proved a pleasant one through
out and will not soon be forgotten
by attendants. Few secret societies
have proven more popular and
worthy than the two divisions of
the Maccabees, and this is fully
attested by the wonderful growth.
