Boys Out on Parole.
The three young boys, Ernest
Verhue, Arthur Harness and
Frank Marsh, aged 9, 12 and 10
years, respectively, were arraign
ed this morning before Judge
Iteeson, charged with stealing
brass and copper from the West
ern Machine and Foundry Go.
After giving the matter con
sideration the judge decided that
instead of sending them to the
state reformatory at Kearney, he
would release the boys on parole
for thirty days, pending good be
havior. This case is unusual for
the extreme youth of the culpits
and their apparent incorrigibility.

which was given under the

Elva Hartford; second prize, Ruth
Clark, Marie Baldwin; honorable

the young people who were se

of the city schools.

who have made the essay contest
a success, the judges for time and
careful work, and also those who
participated in the progra'(i,

Return From Hastings.
Messrs. William Starkjohn and
Frank Neumann of this city re
turned this morning on Uurling-
on train No. G from Hastings,
Neb., where they have been for
the past few days attending the
state convention of the Sons of
Ierman. They report that they
lad a most enjoyable and in
structive lime at the convention,
n spite of the fact that the
weather was somewhat inclement,
n fact it rained nearly every day
Iowever, the delegates from this
city did not. allow that fact to
nterfere much with their enjoy
ment, especially in view of the
fact that in the contest which was
on at the convention in regard to
the proposed increase in rates
for the coming year, our dele
gates were lined up on the "in
surgent" side, and succeeded in
carrying their point by a single
vote. Although this is a narrow
margin it is still very effective
and the delegates are well pleased.

A very much appreciated im
provement has been made in the
Ciem theater in this city in the
installation . of a large 2 i-inch
exhaust fan that will be used to
purify the air in the auditorium
of the theater, as the fan will
carry 5,000 cubic feet a minute
and will assure that there will al
ways be a constant supply of
pure, fresh air in the room and
do awav with the inconvenience
so often found of a close, warm
room when it is filled with a large
crowd of persons. The fan wa
installed for Mr. Shlaes by the
firm of Warga & Schuldice, who
have the contract for the placing
of a number of fans in the dif
ferent business houses of the city

Among the singers who have
taken part in the festival of
music at the Omaha auditorium,
which was held Monday and
Tuesday by the Mendelssohn
choir of Omaha, under the direc
tion of Thomas J. Kelley, in as
sociation with the Chicago Sym
phony orchestra, was Mrs. J. W.
Gamble, formerly of this city.
Mrs. Gamble is gifted, as every
one here knows, with a splendid
voice, and has taken advantage of
the occasion to enlist in this
splendid musical organization,
and derives as much benefit as
possible from the instruction of
Prof. Kelley. This musical event
was one of the largest ever held
in Omaha and has been pro
nounced one of the greatest
triuniphs ever scored by the
choir. ' The Symphony orchestra
is the same as was presided over
by the late Theodore Thomas,
and is under the direction of
Frederick Stock, the famous con
ductor, known tjie world over.
