The "Diamond Lancers" now taught In all
the principal schools and classes throughout
the country , has already become so well
known that any further description of , or

The "Berlin" comprises a polka step , dis
playing an easy and graceful too movement.
It commences with three pol'ta ' steps for
ward , starting wit'i the outside foot , then
pointing inside toe front and back , a half
turn Is made , completely changing the posi
tions of the dancers. The couple assume
their original position by repeating this
movement , starting off , however , in the op
posite direction to that first taken. Four
polka steps are next d.inced in order that the
couple may again bo in position for the half
turn and repetition of liguro above described.
Thin dance ran also be executed in rodowa
and galop time.
Tno "Laraveno" is in
3-1 time and consists
of an easy slide in either direction , passing
'the opposite foot back and front to a grace-
spring movement and the execution of a
redowa step in either direction and repeat ,
leading off again with two glissades.
"The "Parisian Gavotte" is the most difll-
cult , though most popular , of all. No other
dance at present In vogue can bo comp ired
with It , as it is entirely original in its ar
rangement from beginning to end. It is an
exceedingly lively dance , full of action , while
the music to which it is executed is particu
larly inspiring. The participants , each standIng -
Ing in half position , facing each other the
same as in the "Diamond , " are first required
to pass the .outside toe front , then back , re
peating the same within side foot , leading off
with a redowa in either direction , terminat
ing with four glissades , the gentleman start
ing on the left and the lady on the right.

The mission of Society.
It has been well said that the vital princi
ple grows weak when isolated. The man
who cares for nobody and for whom nobody
cares has nothing to live forthut will pay for
the trouble of keeping soul and body to
gether. You must have a heap of embers to
make u glowing fire. Scatter them apart
and they become dim and cold. So to have n
brisk , vigorous 11 fo you must have a group
of lives to keep each other warm , as it were
to alTord each other mutual encourage
ment and confidence and support. If you
wish to live the life of a man , and not that
of a fungus , bo social , bo brotherly , bo char-
Ituulo , be sympathetic , nnd labor earnestly
for the good of your kind.

Question Annln How Xlioy Ob
served Thanksgiving Day.
O. O. P.
A wide field for
speculation and dis
cussion Is brought up
in the trouble which
has come upon an
eminent past grand
commander in New
York , because ho
indited a fraternal
letter to various
members of the
order under the
ing u good word for a brother who was
a candidate for . the ofllco of Hcuten
ant governor and enclosing pasters. As a
matter of fact the fraternal orders must
necessarily have an influence in politics if
the obligations which they Impose are of any
force. An lullitity of causes and circum
stances may modify the obligation to assist
one another In the political field but thcro
is an immense force in the "fel
low feeling" which makes us wondrous kind.
The great safeguard , however , lies In the
fact that no member of the order of Odd
Follows , nor indeed ol any of the grcxt fra
ternal organl/atlons , can bo true to the teach
ings of his order and cast his vote for any
other than the one whom ho considers tha
best man for his country nnd for humanity.
Speaking of tlio Now York incident , the San
Francisco Examiner says : The writer
doubtless forgot , in the beat of the campaign
and the desire to get his friend elected , that
the initials and titles of orders could bo
legitimately used except upon matters in
some way pertaining to the fratern
ity or connected therewith , Ho may
have thought It "wus for the good of the or
der" that his candidate should bo elected ,
Wo have known the time In the history of
New York when , If the fraternal
societies . had canvassed and elec
tioneered for certain candidates for
ofllco or against certain others , it would
have been "for the good of the orders , "
Also in Missouri ; yes , and also hero ut homo
In California. The sweeping assertion that
"politics can never bo allowed or enter
tained , " etc. , Is not correct. Whan there are ,
united wealthy antagonists seeking , by every
means , to hamper , cramp und obstruct , by
legislation , the march of fraternities , ft is of
vital importance that tha orders rlso , us they
have done , and through the medium of tlio
ballot box elect friends and retire antagon
ists. Wo know naught of the case under dis
cussion , It muy be , as charged , a gr.ivo violation
lation , but when the assort ion is made that
under no circumstances should an order have
anything to do with politics or candidates ,
wo respectfully assert that this rule , Hue all
others , has exceptions.
From correspondence collected by the
Pythian Knight of Rochester relative to
the insurance question , the following extracts -
tracts are of Interest in Omaha. Under date
of November 5 , Supreme Chancellor General
William Ward writes to U. B. Uowley , Esq. ,
grand chancellor of Louisiana : "You ask ,
under date of November 1 , 18S3 ! 'Would
there bo any objection tn some of the mom-
bora of the order starting nn Insurance com

Yes , thcro are many objections , und In

the name of the order of the Knights of Pi'tb-
Every knight is eligible to membership in
the endowment rank.
I will not grant permission to use the name
of the order to any organization called life in
Yon may ask , why not permit Louisiana to
exorcise the same privilege of souio jurisdic
tions that now nso the name of thu order
connected with life insurance.
My reply would be , they orirnnl/ccl prior to
my ndmlnlstratfon , but I will say further
that my report to the supreme lodfjo will em
body a strong recommendation to uinko it
illegal to thus use the iiuino of the order.
True Unlghthood is , to foster every Interest
of the order , and tha endowment runic Is an
Interest of vital importance. "
In a rather vehement communication ad
dressed to the same publication , ana leveled
particularly and speuiflcally at the I1. O. C.s
Shropshire and Moncll , J. A , Hinsey ,
of Milwaukee , president of the
board of control , takes occasion to
remark that "if suiiremo authority has In the
past said thcso frauds 'should' ' bo prohibited ,
the supreme chancellor and president of the
board of control noiva.iy they shall be ami are
prohibited from usingcithnrtho word 'I'.vtli-
ian , ' or 'Knights of Pvthias , " as a title
to procure and do buslnessas a life Insurance
company , an-l I trust every member of the
order , particularly those of the endowment
rank , will spcalc aud act boldly in support of
this position. "
On the other hand a secretary of one of
these organUations who believes that thu en
dowment r.m'.c should "liustlo with thereat , "
writes : "The endowment r.ink of this order
1ms never been a practical buccess , that is ,
with any degree of satisfaction to northern
knights , and I am not surprised
that these movements for homo insur
ance are being enacted and ngitatrd
nil over the country , especially in the north-
crn states. Has It como to pass that n
knight cannot do anything except what is
dictated to him by the supreme lodcof Are
wo subject to some Pythian monarchy J Can
not an individual knight inmno In a Pythian
Lite or an endowment rank , or both , as he
clcctsi If the laws of this country will al
low the incorporation uf n Pythlmi life in
surancc company , Is it In keeping with good
cit7cnshii ! > for the Huprcmo loilgo to say that
the incorporation should not bu operative !
On the other hand , suppose the nuijrcine
lodge should say that midi insurance com
panies wora illegal and not allowed to exibt ,
what then ) If they cannot work with and
by thu sanction of thu supreme loilro. ; why
they can work without it. The bovci-lgn
grand lodge , I. O. O. K. does not sanction
the Covlngton Mutual , but it Is a success ,
nevertheless ; also , the Masonic Aid. "

About this period , I. o nb.iut ono hunurcil
and llfty years before the ndvcnt of the Mca-
slnli , tlioy bognn to bo called Kssenca
( "seers , ' or thu silent , the mysterious ) , mid
nftcrthe eventful subjugation of Israel , sub *
senucntly to the ilo.it li in battle of Juitai
Maccabeus , they withdrew disheartened Into
the desert , nnd built their principal habita
tions near the Dead sea. Isolated cennnunt *
tipsef the Ksseuos al"0 established them *
solves In various heathen countries , nml
it is a rumarknblo historical fact that
out of -n corruption ef the
Kssonlo rite , the simple and comparatively
piiroVeliglonof the lire worshipers aroio.
They were not allowed by their vows to
proselyte , mid hence , notwithstanding tha
remarkable Inllncnco they wielded , their
aggregate number In Jiulon was notmucti
nbovo four thousand at tun tlmo of the birth
of the Messiah , and yet their luiK | > rtanco was
such that a gate of Jerusalem was named in
honor of them , and their history nnd acts
decupled a largo space In the writings ot
Joscphus and Plnlo the philosopher.
I'liey made systematic provision for the
poor ; devoted especial attention to thu euro
and medical truattnonl of the sick ; cul-
tlvat \ \ a close aciiualntaiico with the move
ments and phenomena uf the heavenly orbs ;
devoted themsulvoi , to ngriculturo and mech
anics ; manlfcstod a tender regard for chil
dren , and n reverence for the nucd ; wcro
always ready to relieve distress wherever
found ; and their magnanimity , self control ,
and heroism under persecution , their Indif
ference to death , and siibluno faith In the
immortality and future blessedness of the
soul all combine. ! to render thorn nobly
conspicuous in their day , and to win for
thorn the leveroiit respect of oven the
heathen by whom tl.ey were surrounded.
Abcv.it ono hundred and llfty years aftrr
the old disponsalion had given place to tlio
now , the or ler nearly disnpiiwrs from his
tory. It hud , us the tradition Informs uv ,
licconm very much modified under the in
fluence of Christianity , and accepted Jesus ns
being "Htm that w.is to come. " Its dis
tinctive forms and its asceticism were not
lost , and it can bo clearly traced to that re
markable r.ico , the Druses of Mount Le
banon , into whom the Kssenos seem to have
merged , and from whom the Orst erus.idcrs
received the hints out of which grew the or
ders of Christian Knights. It is behoved
that many of these modlllcd 1sones joined
the crusaders in their abortive attempts to
recover Jiideii from the .Saracens.

Though not strictly a secret society , the
following account furnished by Mr. Willuun
Ncvc of the progress and work of ono of the
leading benevolent societies will be i cad with
The Danish association is one of the least
assuming , but nevertheless entitled to u
front rank among the societies in Omaha on
account of its bciiKVolencu and enterprise.
It was organi/cd January ID , 1S71 , by about
a do7cn of our Daiilsh-Ameriuiu citirois as a
social society , and gicw slowly for some
years , then n weekly sick benefit
of f" was luidcd and u little later
a funeral benefit of W50 , MIKM whuli
the society hiis paid thous.mdH i.
dollars to its members and oilier needy
countrymen. In charitable acts no society
in Omaha will outrank thu Danish. TJm en
terprise is best proven by Inokinu at thu eio-
gant brick block on South Klghlcenlh. iicnr
Hnrnoy. where a bulldligof : which llioeout H
fully i > iOUli ( ) , stands almost i-pmplulod , on a
lot of nearly thos.uno value , with only $ JV'OO
mortgage on all of II. The property UViied
by the society pioper ; no shares or slock vt
issueJ , The name of the build. ng is the
D.iuish ussoel.ilion block , The dimensions
am IH feet front and 10.1 feet In depth , ami ,
four stories hfuli. It Is built of proved
brick , stone and terra cotta , and is clmmod
to bo the ino.nl sulMiunlial building of Hi
si/.o In Omaha. Tlio first floor Is nriMiigtd
for stores for rout. All the rest Is for t'io '
society's use. The second floor Is divided
into a largo cluhroum , libiury ,
committee rooms , a largo meet
ing room and a dining room ,
with n .seating capacity of'i50 persons. There
nro also toilet rouus : and all modern im
provements. The third Hour Is tlio dancing
hall , the name of which Is Washington hull ,
and covers all of the third floor except a
ncnt llttlo stage and ladles mid gouts' toilet
rooms. The dancing floor prouor Is GIUUO
feet , with a culling ! ! ! feet lilyli. A splendid
eight foot g.iUory surrounds the hall. For
balls and Cuiiccrls this hall beats anything
In the city.
\\'o would inalco a suggestion to thecom -
itiittoa for the charity b.ill , If such K going
to bo hold this winter , to neo the ofllecrs of
the society about the hull , as wo foul assured
they would gladly donate the building for
such a purpose. The society will rout the
