Services at St. Luke's Church
Sunday was the Sunday upon which
the regular monthly song service at
St. Luke's Episcopal church was given.
And as is always the case, the choir
acquitted themselves superbly. Under
the very able leadership of Choirmaster
Austin, the music given by the choir is
of the very highest order of merit. The
Anthem "Light's Abode" by West,
formed the opening selection on a pro
gram of rare merit, and the choir gave
the noble melody a fitting rendition. In
the grand Anthem "He Shall Come
Down Like Rain" there was also much
skillful training manifested while the
closing number on the program, the
Anthem "What Hast Thou Given For
Me" by Ambrose, an old time favorite
with all, was beautifully and touching-
y sang. Choirmaster Austin in that
grand bass solo "Take Tip Thy Cross"
was at his best and his splendid bass
voice, a delight to listen to at any time
was magnificent in the handling of this
plendid solo. Mr. Austin in company
with his wife also sang a charming
duet "Shadows of the Evening Hour"
their voices blending in harmony and
lending themselves to the sentiment of
the air. Mrs. Annie Britt greatly de
lighted the congregation by a solo of
rare merit "My Shepherd" a noble
sacred selection which she interpreted
excellently, and for which her voice
was well fitted. Nevin's "Strength of
the Hills" as given by Mrs. II. S. Aus
tin, was a piece most acceptably fitted
to the program, her rendition being of
the highest grade. The Offertory by
Miss Kittie Cummius was charming and
grand instrumental selection, fingered
and expressed only as thit accomplish
ed and talented pianiste can express
music. It may be also said that much
of the success of the singing was due
to the perfect work of the accompanist.
As a whole the entire program was of
high rank and merit, and excellently
were paid. In the case of McDonald
there were extenuating circumstances,
he being an aged man a laborer who
had worked upon a farm near the city
and who had just secured a job upon
the section here. Under the circum
stances the court thought one dollar's
worth of celebrated brand was sufficient
and suspended the sentence providing

J. II. Merriam, who has been acting
in the capacity of city engineer in this
city for a number of months past,
has closed his connection with the city,
and departed for Omaha, expecting to
go from there to Denver, Colo., where
he will likely locate. It is a matter of
regret to have so good a man and so
efficient an engineer as Mr. Merriam
leave the city, but the field here is too
limited to afford him ground to stay
here. He has made himself verv nonu-
lar with everyone he has come in con
tact with during his stay in the city,
and he carries with him the very best
wishes of the entire community. His
work for the city was of the highest
order, and met with the commendation
of the city officials. He can be recom
mended to anyone desiring the services
of a competent and able civil engineer.
Henry R. Gering Monday was elec
ted President of the Porter-Ryerson-Hoobler
Drug Co, manufacturing phar
macists, who will very shortly open a
large wholesale drug house in Omaha,
Mr. Gering having taken a very large
interest in the concern and intending at
some time in the future to give it his
attention. This will not be for a num
ber of months yet, however, and he
will continue to make this city his home
and direct his portion of the business
from here until such a time as the busi
ness oi tne company compels him to
make a change. The many friends of
Mr. Gering will be delighted to learn of
his good fortune, in being selected as
the head of such a large concern,
thought they regret the severance
his connection with this city.

Tha Journal has had the pleasure of
witnessing one of the finest specimens
of apples seen here for many a day. It
is one that explodes the theory that
fruit cannot be raised on the Missouri
bottoms, this apple having been grown
by Mrs. Hinton who lives just across
the river near the big Burlington bridge.
Mrs. Hinton was in the city Saturday
and brought over a fine basket of large,
luscious apples one of which she left
with this paper as a specimen. She
was the guest of Mrs. J. W. Johnson
during her stay in the city. It can be
said for Mrs. Hinton that she is the
prize fruit raiser of the Iowa bottoms.
