The Maenncrchor consists of the leading
German elti/cns , and is ns merry an orga
nization , with as much good cheer constantly
following us any such organization In the
land. Last even ing was onoof their special
occasions , and it Is almost needless to say it
was an enjoyable ono to all participants. The
hall was beautifully decorated with holiday
adornments. The early part of the evening
was spent with music , which forms so im-
l > ortunt a part of the society's enjoyment.
Then there wus dancing and refreshments.
The chief merriment wus , however , centered
In a Christmas tree. It was a beautiful one ,
brightly lighted and heavily laden. There
are about two hundred members and the tree
bore fruit for each one. The boughs were
loaded with mysterious packages , each bear
ing a certain number , and each member was
plvcn by chance a corresjionding number.
When the tree was all lighted , the distri
bution of the gifts was In the charge of L. A.
LJergumn and Antono Kink. There was
much fun caused us package after package
was given out in response to the calling of
the numbers , and full grown members found
themselves in possession of dolls , trumpets ,
and various novelties. Among those who
held a number which wus not called out was
Captain L. Kirscht , the president of the
Macnnerchor. Ho was most happily sur
prised on finding that a special gift was re
served for him us a closing. It was an ele
gant ebony cane , with a richly chased gold
head on which was very nicely engraved ,
"Council H lu flu Maenncrchor to Its Presi
dent , L. Kirscht , Jan. 1st , lbS8. "
The engraving wus done by Mr. Greyer , a
young man who bus much skill. Captain
Kirscht was taken completely by suprise.
Antono Kink made a very fitting speech of
presentation. He alluded to the fact that
Captain Kirscht was one of the oldest mem
bers of the society , and the manner in which
he had served as president had endeared him
A brief acceptance was uttered by the reci
pient , who was duly appreciative of the
honor conferred , and the good will expressed.
A season of merry making followed. The

The New York Plumbing company has
been making It decidedly warm for II. W.
Tilton , of the DEI : . The company has lilted
up his residence , No. J527 Fifth avenue , with
a complete system of hot water heating. The
use of steam is well known , but the idea of
using hot water , in place of steam , is com
paratively now. Many huvc been watching
the result of its introduction in this city with
special interest. The recent intense cold has
given a line opportunity for putting the sys
tem to the test , unit it has stood it grandly.
It takes a fellow a little time to get used to
the novelty. The old inclination still lingers
to rush up to some stove and indulge in an
enthusiastic poking of the fire. Ono wants
to see something burning to convince himself
that the cold is being energetically fought.
Then if ono leaves a door open into another
room there comes up the old inclination of
indulging in a shiver , and speedily follow it
by a sharp lecture of the culprit. When ono
don't feel any shiver and has no excuse for
blowing off his wrath , there is a feeling of
disappointment. There is no place for the
dog or cat to crawl under a stove and take
un ull day's roast. There are no warm cor
ners for anyone to selfishly monopolize. The
tired ncwsguthcrcr looks in vain for some
place where ho cun perch his feet higher
than his head , and toast them. All of these
little changes in one's habits are quite
marked , but ono finds much consolation for
The heat can bo made Just whatono wants ,
quickly and surely , and can bo sent all over
the house. It goes where it is sent , and no
sudden wind , or treacherous crack , can turn
it from its course. It holds it own , and keeps
the even tenor of its way , day in and night
through. It's a moist heat , and there is no
keeping of tin cans full of water to prevent
the air from drying up. Then with coal at
$11.50 a ton it is cheering to know that all of
one's income is not going up the chimney. It
matters not In wliat part of a room ono is
seated , there is warmth. There is no need of
nervousness over defective flues , or falling
stovepipes. In fact , it comes as near the per
fect , silent , self-acting , safe and sure system
of heating us any that has been thus far dis
Llko steam It requires skill and care to
have the system put in , and arranged prop
erly. Hatched or cheap work , will make
much trouble. The New York Plumbing
company bus already established a reputation
for understanding its business , and attending
to it. The result is that the residences which
they have furnished are giving no trouble.
When once put In properly the hot water
heating is us simple to run ns an ordinary
stove. With the results of this season prov
ing so satisfactory , the company will find it
self crowded with orders for the comingycar.

The Apollo club , of Omaha , Is making ar
rangements for repenting in this city the ser
ies of concerts which they provided for
Omaha. The continuance of this plan depends
largely on the support given to the enterprise
by the musio lovers of this city. The llrst
conceit is to bo given at Dohuny's opera
house on the Oth , Friday evening , this week.
The Apollo club has already a reputation
which should cause the simple announcement
sufficient to fill the house. As an additional
attraction , the St.Cecclla quartet.of this city ,
consisting of Mrs. Wudsworth , Mrs. Evans ,
Mrs. Mocked and Mrs. Ward , will assist. Mr.
Urigham will also take part , two solos being
promised from him. With such a programme
n rare treat is assured. If the enterprise la
appreciated as It should bo the other concerts
of this club cun also be scouted for this city ,

the St. Louis Globe-Uemoouut : Mr.
< I Joseph O. Lnnuntiter , living nufthucbt
t 1 of Tultbville , in this ( Ray ) , county , hua
a colt eight months old thai is a most
hiiiciilur phenomenon of nature. When
foaled the only peculiarity about it was
that it had very little huir on it , and its
upper lip bucnied longer than usual
with colts , mid was of a singular shape ;
otherwise it was a well-formed colt.
The hair , what there was of it , was a
mouse color. When about a month old
tlru colt's upper lip hud grown longer
and assumed a conical form. Its upper
lip has continued to grow until it is now
eight and one-half inches long , nnd
almost exactly like an elephant's trunk.
t can pick up small potatoes and an-
) les with its trunk ( if wo may call it
such ) , hut it cannot bend it sufllcient to
enable it to put the apple or potato in
Is mouth. The mother of the colt was
t Richmond about eight months before
lie colt was horn , when Sells' mcnngerio
was hero , and got terribly frightened at
one of the elephants. Mr. Lancaster
ma written P. T. Burnum to buy the
Snd Dcnth of a Star.
Ccntralia ( Kan. ) Guard : The "Uncle
Tom O'abin" show performed hero Mon
day night. As they forgot to give the
usual compliHientaries in return for free
uilTs wo didn't go. Their best actor
, ho trick jackass died before they got
icrc , and that's the only thing wo cared
ibout seeing , anyway.
