They have all qualitied hs tender
feet. To pass the examination they
were required to know the Scout law,
the sign, salute and significance of the'
budge, thu composition and history of
the national flag and the customary
forms of respect due to it.
They had to become expert in the
tying of four different knots.
These boys have all taken the Scout
oath, which is as follows:
On my honor I will do my best:
1. To do my duty to God and my
country, and to obey the Scout law.
2 To help other people at all times,
:i, To keep myself physically strong
mentally awake and morally straight.
We mo glad to know that these
boys, by this oath, have taken a stand
for upright, clean living, and declared
their purpose to make their lives
serviceable to the community. It is a
pleasure for every tnati and woman in
the vicinity to be assured that certain
boys can be trusted, to know haw to
pick them out, to see the evidences of
their worth and reliability. These boys
deserve the especial eucouiagemelit

The meeting of the Congregational
Brotherhood Tuesday night was of
ebpoclal interest. The usual opeulng
exercises were conducted by the pre
sident, Mr. Cotting. In answer to the
roll call Mr. Ollham culled attention
iu an impressive manner to the hero
ism and chivalrous self government of
the fifteen hundred men who were
drowned in the accident to the Titauic.
Rev. Bayne also warmly commended
their self sacrince. ine meeting was
then turned over to the chairman of
the community welfare committee,
who called on Mr. Maurer to give an
explanation of the taxing power of the
city council, Mr. Maurer gave a very
full aud lucid exposition of the whole
subject. He could ilnd no authority
to levy tuxes iu excess of fifteen mills
on the dollar for all purposes, except
to pay the interest and principal of
the bonded Indebtedness. Mr. Maurer
stated the total taxes iu this city as
01 mills, and in that connection fur
nished a statemout showing the taxes
in twenty-four Nebraska cities, which
we publish in auother column.
Mr. Maurer's address was listened
to with great iuterest. And there was
general approval of the research and
thought given by the speaker to his
Mr. Gather exhibited the present in
debtedness of the city aud figures
showing the lucome and expenditures
of the lighting and water plant.
Mr. Overing confined bis remarks to
the improvement of the streets and ex
plained what could bo done with little
expenditure of money by the adoption
of a systematic procedure so that
each administration would add to, in
stead of undo the work of its predeces
sors. Mr. Pierce thought the .city had
made a mistake by making the rood
ways of the streets too narrow. The
dirt necessary to round up the middle
of the streets Is made unavailable.
The discussion tbcu became general,
until the hour and a half were con
sumed. The now faces at the meeting
weie those of Mayor elect, Turnure,
and Councilman to be, Saunders.
These gentleineu contented themselves
with putting interrogatories, and ex
hibited u desire to become acquainted
with the views of the peoplo whom
they are soon to serve.
