Social Feature of the Session.
The following account of the do

lodge No. 173, and Upchurth
lodge No. 2.
Superior lodge No. 193 of South
Omaha, performed the Degree of
Honor memorial drill with a rever
ence that touched more serious emo
tions of the spectators.
Following the drills adjournment
was taken to the auditorium of the
academy where the literary part of
the program was tarried out.
It was announced that Mayor
James Dahlman, who was on the pro
gram to deliver the opening address,
was unavoidably detained. Thomas
Flynn was substituted for him.
"I realize," said My. Flynn, "that
It bas been a disappointment to the
mayor as well as to you, that he was
not able to address you tonight. I
am sure It would have been his pleas
ure as a member of the Degree of
Honor to take advantage of this oc
casion to say a word of commenda
tion to this organization."
Mr. Flynn concluded his address
with a glowing eulogy of the things
for which the Degree of Honor

of honor, gave a brief talk In her
stead, which was followed by a short
discourse from Superior Recorder
Elizabeth E. Allhurn.
"This Is my first visit to the Ne
braska Jurisdiction of the Degree of
Honor," said Mrs. Oion, "and In ex
planation of that fai t, I will say that
I saved the best state for the last."
Declaring that she wanted to corrob
orate what was said of the fraternity
and its mission by Mr. Flynn, Mrs.
Olson completed her remarks.
At the Paxton hotel yesterday af
ternoon the nomination of the offi
