With .Music and Danclnc, Games mid
feasting, Nctt Officers Take up
The officers elect of Victor Lodge No. 10
K. of P. were publicly installed on Tues
day evening of this week. A large atten
dance of the knights and their friends was
present. The installation ceremonies were
conducted by Deputy Grand Chancellor
C. A. Rankin, assisted by Deputy Grand
Prelate L. M. McFall and Deputy Grand
Vice-Chancellor H. F. Hanson. The im
pressive installation ceremonies were inter
spersed with songs by the members of the
lodge, solos by A. Blackburn, Miss Helen
Broome and music by a string quartette
composed of Prof. Moore, first violin.
George Walz, second violin; Judge Spacht,
viola and S. M . Smyscr, cello.
After the ceremonies of installation were
concluded tables were brought out and as
many as could be accommodated at the ta
bles engaged in progressive high five.
Mrs. Dr. Bowman and H. F, Hanson were
either the best players or sat in better luck
than their various competitors for they
carried off the prizes. While the card
playing was in progress A. Blackburn took
advantage of the situation and turned his
phonograph loose on the assembly and
marches, waltzes, coon songs, banjo solos
and stories of the adventures of Col.
Stewart followed each other in quick suc
cession to the immense entertainment of
the entire company. After the prizes
were awarded the cards were put away for
future use and Hal Pardee got in his work
on the party by serving an elegant lunch.
The tables were then cleared away and
Mr. Walz stuck his violin under his chin
and, assisted by Mr. Broome at the piano,
soon had die company engaged in dancing
to music that would have made the ordina
ry fiddler turn green with envy. At about
1 2 '30 Wednesday morning the party broke
up declaring that when it comes to show

We very much deplore the great irregu
larity in'attendance, most of which we be
lieve to be due to epidemic diseases and
other sickness, and hence to a certain ex
tent unavoidable, but nevertheless it is
obvious that school work is very much re
tarded thereby; and not only is thu effort
of each room affected adversely, but alas,
it en tails much greater labor and worry on
the part of the teacher. We hope howev
er that the different diseases have about
run their course, and that we may look for
better attendance during the remainder ol
this year. Respectfully submitted,

A crowded house greeted the production
of the Missouri Girl at the opera house
last Friday evening and they were well en
tertained. It was laughter almost from
start to finish in spite of two harrowing
deaths. As a fun-producer it is hard to
excel and that is what it is played for
principally, as it is on the farce comedy
order. The parts give opportunity for
character work and most of it was over
done. In fact, it is seldom that the coun
try bumpkin, the old maid and Hie child's
part in a play are not so overdone that no
body ever saw anything in life like them,
although farce comedy is not expected to
be produced without great exaggeration.
All in all, everyone got his money's worth
and we recommend any one in need of
good laugh to go to see the Missouri Girl.

Animals to secure the passage of a law
compelling western ranchmen to prepare
adequate provisions for their stock during
the winter that many cases of suffering

reasons for the passage of the bill, and

"A conference lasting over two hours
was held tonight in the office of Secretary

situation was presented and discussed
thoroughly. At the conclusion of the con
ference it was'agreed that the Nebraska
delegation be permitted to draft a bill and
submit it to Secretary Hitchcock and
Chairman Lacey. It is now thought that
since a full conference has been had a bill
can be drawn by the Nebraskans embody
ing points that would be acceptable to all
concerned. The main points, as printed
in previous dispatches to the Bee, after a
conference between the cattlemen and Ne
braskans aud Major Lacey just prior to
the holiday adjournment will be incorpor
ated in the bill to be drawn as a result of
tonight's talk with 1 Secretary Hitchcock
