About ono hundred und .fifty gentlemen
assembled nt Elks' lodge room Tuesday even
ing in response to Invitations sent them by
Omaha council of the National union. Th'o
entertainment committee of the council made
splendid arrangements for a good time and In
the enjoyment of these assembled they did
their work well.
The first number of the performance was
an exhibition drill by a sound of the Omaha
guards composed of Captain A. H. Bclinrff ,
Sorgonnt F. E. Bamford , First Sergeant
William J. Faye , Corporal A. E. Campbell
aud Private w. S. Dolph. The drill was
faultlessly executed and the guards wcro re
warded with hearty applause.

and about eighty engaged in this pastlmo.

also with music. Mr. A. B. Woodman gave
n violin solo , W. W. Bowlsby rendered n

When the entire assemblage sang "March
ing Through Georgia , " John Brown's Bodv"
and "There's a hole in the bottom of the
sen" a few of the morn timid guests thought
the roof wouU raise.
Then uirio refreshments and cigars nnd
perhaps the chorus singing had sharpened
the appetites , because It was surprising to see
the good things disappear.
At this Juncture Captain Scharff called the
guests to order nnd introduced Mr. J. W. Mav-
uard , * president of ttio council before , in his
usual happy manner extended a cordial wel
come to the guests of the evening.
