"Ill Barbiere," "Una voce poca fa," was rendered mos' beautifully by her mezzo soprauo voice. Her encore was more beautiful than all, she sang "Marguertte." The aunual masquerade ol the ( Jer mauia club, was well attended on Tuesday night, and was thoroughly enjoyable to all The Germania club is a most successful rival of the much vaunted Imperial and in hospitality is beyond comparison. The ier- a l mama was organized by one t our best Germans as a family club, where their children could enjoy the danc ing ami ct be under the eye of ptter families. This is certainly a unique way and a most sensible one, to give the little oaes, after school hours an eveuing of real pleasure. With such stauuch gentlemen as Col. VV. J. Dulmeyer, E. Mayor Binder, Mr. J. Strauss, as spousers for the clut, it will remain a special feature of Jettersoo's social life. Mrs. A. P.

So far the effects are not particularly disastrous, hut more serious trouble is expected. It is about time that the Ohio metro polis had made regular arrangements for floods. Tbey can be depended on as fixed institutions in that locality. Year afier year territory that was once regarded as safe and valuable business property has been inundated, sjsji there has been a great fail in values in consequence. The change is due to the stripping of the timber from the tributaries of the Ohio and the improved d range f farming lands, whereby the water which formerly was slow in finding its way to the main stream now runs into it as though from a roof. What is true of Cincinnati is true of mauy cities on river b inks in the Mississippi Valley. And as these floods are likely, tor the reasons named, to increase rather than dimish in volume, a systematic recognition of the situation, and adaptation of things, thereto, are in order.
