With the adoption last r!ght of new by
laws and articles of incorporation the
Omaha Baengerfest lost Its Identity to be
come a part of an enormous German sing
ing society to be known as the Omaha
T!J9 3ove, which will push Omaha far
up In the realm of music, was made last
night at the annual election and banquet
of the Baengerfctt, held at the German
home. The move was auggested by the
actions of the German singing societies
..f Indianapolis, Kansas City, St. Louis
and many other cities in combining their
various local German singing organiza
tions which represent those cltlea.
The Omaha Muuikvereln will comprise
the memberships ol the Baengerfest,
Mannerchor. Orpheus and . Concordla.
whlch will make It one of the largest
German societies in the weat. As was
discussed last night, an annual musical
festival or convention will be held In
Omaha which will bring to this city be
tween 600 and Sot) visitors every year.
It waa also auggested that the assocla
tlon would build a music hall, but no
definite actlou was takeo as to that. The
following directors who were elected last

Before Large Crowd
An audience williug to be amused ap
preciated for two hours last night the
novel and harmless fun provided by the
seventy-five members of the local Elks'
club, who made their first appearance on
the stage as real minstrels. Every face
waa familiar to nearly every person in the
audience despite paints and wigs, and the
surprh-e equaled the enjoyment where so
much more was given than was ex
pected. " ......
There were some especially briniant
stars, but every face that beamed on tho
audience indicated stellar qualities. The
songs of Douglass; Evans, Hill Bchnorr,
and Elgan, were encored repeatedly. Du
quette's slelght-of-hand htunt and Tln
cher and Metzger's strong men's act were
especially funny and called for much
more 'in the way of encores than tho
young men had time to give.
Alderman Mlnijlck aa one of the black
faces also gathered p showers of bou
quets that were thrown at him the mo
ment he was recognized. Tho work to

Gain in Shipments for 1911 $1,?02,074.21
This volume is unequaled by competition from ANY
source-past or present. No other concern ever made
or shipped as many shoes in one year.
We have been in the business only 13 years. Through good years and bad
our growth has been continuous an average gain in shipments of over ONE
MILLION DOLLARS each year.
, Our standard is shoes honestly constructed from GOOD leather No substi-.
tutes for leather are ever used.
Each year- wc arc making more shoes. Our
factories produced the past year, over Six Million
Pairs. The larger the output the lower the cost.
The wearer gets the benefit of the saving.
Each season "Star Brand" Shoes have been
made better uniformly better than other shoes
sold at the same price. The growth of our busi
ness proves it.
The shoe business is conducted under more
active competition than any other great industry;
There are over 1300 shoe manufacturers in the
United States. This competition has been an AID
to the growth of our sales.
Wc carry a TWO MILLION DOLLAR
stock, replenished with over Twenty Thousand
pairs of shoes daily new styles kept up to date
every day. Last year wc turned this stock nearly
seven times. No dead stock; therefore, no losses.
The merchant who applies this plan to his
business and orders according to his needs, keeps
new-shoes and new styles coming for his customers
all the time.
In this way the merchant can turn his stock as
often as ive do. He can do a larger business on a
smaller investment. It is all in the turn-over.
SIX POPULAR "STAR BRAND" LINES:
Tee "PATRIOT"--a fine thoe for men. The 'P1LCRIH"- ntal-lervictabU-pcpvtar price. "1FCKIR THAN THE LAW" the etrongeet and
longest wearing work ehoe. The "SOCIETY" a particular $hoe for particular women. "TESS lid TED" School Sheet for girle and
boye-look better, fit better, wear longer. "OUR FAMLY" An every day thoe for every member of the family.
Always ask for and insist on having "StarBrand Shoes." If your dealer doesn't
handle them it will pay you to change dealers.
. Look for the "Star" on the heel then you cannot be mistaken.
