AN INTERESTING CEREMONY.
The Liedorkr-Hiiz Hud Turnverein Societies
Formally rultvd Saturday Kv-iilnsr.
Situruay evening, June 1:0, was
made memorable in the history of two
of the oldest social organizations in
this city by the formal act of uniting
them into one. The Turnveiein so
ciety was organized in this city July
jO, I8S7, and the Lioderkranz, a Ger
man singing soeiety, was organized
August 20, 1S78.
John Sattler was the last president
and Win. Wohlfurth vice-president of
the Turneis, while Chris Wohlfarth
ami Gust. Luu held similar positions
with the Lied- rKieuz. The new offi
cers of the joint societies in e being se
lected by a committee. The societies
mentioned have not ouiy kept up
their organization through all these
years, but have accumulated projKirty
and been successful socially to an emi
nent degree. 1 he old country custom
of throwing awny dull care at iho close
of the uiy and meeting for converse,
singing, ath.'etie exercise and amuse
ment has been carefully observed. No
where could one find a more hearty
whole souled crowd bent on having a
good time than at the meetings of
these societies in which the oldest
joined with the young in equal zest.
The preliminary arrangements for
uniting the two societies were all con
cluded and on Saturday evening what
might have been called a ratification
meeting was held. Tables twere set
in the large hall with chairs for mem
bers and guests, while the City band
occupied the front near tho stage and
discoursed their best music through
out tho evening. A most palatable
luncheon was served, while beer and
other refreshments wore as free as air
and almost as plentiful. An air of gen
ial hospitality was everywhere
noticeable. After eloquent siiooehes
in German by l'aul Gering,
Oswald Guthmau, Wilhelm Weber,
Ilerr Jahrig, Fred Lb nger, M. Soen
nichsen and several others.
The formal act of uniting the two
organizations took place when tho
- two presidents standing impressively
with clasped hands, on tho stage
listened to a chrteiing song called
thlP'Grca'TDay" by the liederknanz
which was lead by John Lutz sr. one of
the best vocalists in tho county. The
song was so well rendered that the
audience vociferously applauded. Tho
balance of the evening was given up to
social enjoyment which the German
Americans seem to so well understand
They can get nore hearty laughs in
one evening than a Yankee could
gather together in a month. -
The new organization starts out
under most flattering auspices, and
already a splendid two-story hall, the
largest in the city, is talked of to bo
located on the corner of their Wash
ington avenue property. The News
heartily wishes its German friends
their full share of success and good
earljr u Tragedy.
Parties who came in on the early
M. P. train from the south Sunday
morning report witnessing what came
near proving to be a tragedy. Hannah
Black, it seems, was about taking her
departure for Omaha, and as she and
her lover were walking toward town
near Ninth street they began to
quarrel. Finally tho young woman
threatened to shoot the young man,
arid he evidently took her at her word,
as he went into tho air like Prof.
Langly's ilying machine and made a
lively effort to seek cover. The girl,
howcvcr,coolly put her hand inside the
bosom of her dress, and drawing a re
volver, fired a deadly bullet at tho re
treating figure of her late lover, whose
pace was accelerated by the hum of
the bullet as it passed uncomfortably
near hm. The "tragedienne" went
on down to the 1$. & M. dcKt and took
the first train for Omaha, and the
lover has so far failed to make any
complaint, hence the matter will
doubtless be dropped without further

peaches on our place, aud have been
eating them for more than a week.
We have a very nice climate here.
Today the thermometer stands at
about 80 in the shade. There is nearly
always a breeze and it is nice at night
a man can iay down and go to sleep.
No hot, sultry nights like some I have
experienced in Nebraska. We have
nice neighborhoods, and every one
stands nearly on a equality no one is
"stuck up" and thinks they are a
little better than you because they
happen to have more wealth than
you. They are a very sociable lot of
people and extend you the hand of
welcome when you come and treat
you nice. Here is a description of my
little farm of 4i) acres: One good
stable; two good springs; one four
rooined bouse; little meadow; pasture;
28 acres in cultivation; orchard of
apples, pears, peaches, plums and
cherries, gooseberries, blackberries,
and currants; three-fourths mile to
school; four miles to Hush City; five
miles to Wolda and six miles to Gar
rett, which place has a population of
about 3,500, thiee railways and is one
of the liveliest little towns in the
state. There are lots of schools and
churches; land sells at from $15 to $85
per acre, owing to quality, whether
for grazing or for agriculture. East

which Nebraska papers claim it to
have it is not quite as bad here as

Ex-President Harrison will discuss
our national finances in an article on
"The Secretary of the Treasury,"
which will appear in the August issue
of the Ladies' Home Journal. He will
tell briefly of the origin of our finan
cial system; its expansion or develop
ment; how the nation raises its reven
ues, and disbursos its moneys; and de
tail the faults of our system of finan
ciering. Keferring to tho methods
necessary to maintain our gold reserve
General Harrison expresses himself
with evident disapproval, and says
that "tho present situation would be
absurd if it were not so serious." The
incrcaso or the diminution of the gold
reserve, tho ex-President asserts,
powerfully affects every interest, and
the "mending of existing conditions
will be a task for the wisest and
strongest statesmanship. "
Tho ex-president clearly intimates
that successful financiering Is ex
tremely difficult by the present
methods. Upon this point he says:
"If fifty dollars would suffice to hold
50,(KM),000 in the treasury the secre
tary could not expend that small sum.
lie must stand by until the gold is
gone, and then sell bonds to get it
bacK. The result is that the banks
and the brokers are often able to
mako play of the treasury. A finan
cial institution whoso board transacts
its business in public is at a disadvan
tage. A HOLIDAY TIUI

The corn fields in general are very
