Probably the largest and neatest
kept frnit and nower earden in the city
is that of J. H. Kereenbrock in the east
ern portion of the city. A visit there at
this time of year is a real treat and a
feast for the eyes. Notwithstanding the
eevere April freeze, Mr. Kersenbrock's
orchard shows that there is to be con
siderable of a frnit crop. Cherries are
few bat the peach trees are pretty heav
ily loaded with the young fruit, and the
apple trees show plainly that there will
be more than was expected a month ago.
Quite a space is devoted to different
shaped nower beds and when in full
bloom will present a handsome picture.
Doubtless, it requires much time and
expense to keep this spot looking as it
does, but what enjoyment must come
with it alL Would that there were
hundreds more like it.
The Nineteenth annual encampment
of the Nebraska Division Sons of Vet

held each year for the purpose of elect
ing officers for ensuing year and anditing !
the different officers' books who have!
eerved the preceding year, and also to '
transact any other business for the good
of tbe order. Owing to the division
council failing to select Columbus aa a
place to hold this year's meeting until a
very late hour, there were but few dele
gates in attendance, still all who came
were of the true blue order and an ex
cellent meeting was held. A number of
delegates were here from Lushton, Wil
ber, Osceola and Shelby and there no
doubt would have been others could
they have had due notice. The election
of officers took place on Wednesday
afternoon, although it took until very
late before the meeting adjourned. The
following named were elected: Por
commander, James McBeth of Shelby;
aaaior vke, A. E. Hecker of Hooper;
junior vice, B. J. Galley, Columbus; for
division council, L E. Young, Lushton;
W. H. Davis, Wilber, and J. Howard
