The union meeting of the Young
People's societies of the city at the
Christian church Sunday proved a
great success. The weather was
rather damn and cool, and the meet
ing was held inside, instead of on the
lawn. The church was tastefully dec
orated with flag?, which mcde a good
pettintr for the sneakers, whose
themes were all mors or less of a
patriotic nature.
Philip Rhin, who is president of
the Y. I. S. C. E. of the Christian
church, was leader, and E. H. Wes-
cott presided at the piano and the
music was assuredly good. A number
of appropriate hvmns were had at the

There has been a great deal of in

tools and implements used by the

Saturday Prof. Sterns of llarvun
university, together with a party of
assistants, arrived to undertake the
work of searching out a few of these
buried villages in the hope that some
thing of greater value to the store of
knowledge of the early inhabitants
might be elarned. The party went to
Nehawka from here and will put in
several days there in investigating
the traces that have been found o
the Indian tribes that formerly roam
ed over the locality. There has been
several mounds discovered there
which have turned out to have been
the marks of ancient Indian villages,
and several stone implements and
vessels have been unearthed that are
prized very highly by the scientific
world as representative of a race long
vanished. The party from Harvard
will also visit in the vicinty of Rock
Bluffs, where the hills are rich with
old relics of the long ago.

He was called upon innumerable times
to wield his influence toward the pass

When Mr. Wilson was elected as
president, it was said that Mr. Brown
would be given some high position of
trust. A number of offices were sug

his desire to stay in Lincoln, he would
probably have been appointed to some
diplomatic position under this admin

has been mentioned as the democratic
candidate for both governor and Unit

for either office.

to Jennie Bennett of Omaha. Two
sons were born to the union, one of
whom died February 2, 1899; the
other, F. W. Brown, jr., is at present

one brother, Mrs. William Beitler, of
