Last year , aided by subscriptions from out
side parties , tlio society was enabled to clvo
an entertainment for Its very commence
ment , composed of Its literary , musical and
social talent. Tills year It has become
sufficiently strong to Rive an entertainment
based simply upon Its own resources and to
Invite as participators those who had , In the
society's commencement , lent their hand in
tlio society's aid. Tlio meetings of the asso
ciation are held the tirst ot every month at
the rooms of their president , Julius Meyer ,
but the organization Is looking forward
confidently to the near future to have a
separate suite of rooms for their own use ,
and already there Is In formation quite an
extensive library for the use of its members
as soon as they enter their now quarters.
Judging the future of the society by Its past ,
it b'.ds fair to become a solid and stationary
headpiece of the Jewish '
young man's for

THE UATTALiON drill at the base ball
park Friday afternoon of tlio U. U. K.
of P. was well attended by the Sir
Knights. The evolutions were well per
formed nnd show that the few practice
drills have obtained goou results. The

have them where they will not have to
run lather and thither to gut them.
IT WAS unfortunate that tlio mistake
should have occurred us regards the
president's membership with the Knights
of Pythias. The members of that order
would be proud of the fellowship of the
chief executive , but their reception to the
distinguished guest wilt bo none the less
hearty , and among tlio pleasant recol
lections of his western visit none will bo
more prominent in the president's
memory than thu imposing display of the
gallant knights of Nebraska.

The wind Is awake and away !
Her loose hair btiuams behind her ;
O'er hill and hollow ,
Wlioie none may follow ,
Shn Hies where none may lind her ,
And only God's hand bind her.
Tlio wind Is awake and away I
She has sot all natuie swinging ;
Leal In tlio bower
And stany ( lower
Into the dance itre springing.
The wind Is auako and away !
The great pines roar with laughter ,
And dip like closer ,
AsBlie sweeps o\ur ,
Her wild hair streaming after.
The wind Is awake and away !
Tliu white spray leaps behind her ;
Ocean ami llower
Admit her power
As slm Hies where none may llnd her ,
And only God'.s hand bind her.
