Brave men and fair women, descen
dants of the Vikings, gathered last
evening in the Fontenelle hotel at the
eighth annual banquet of the Noonday

cipally Omahans of Swedish birth or
ancestry, but many came also from
other parts of the state and from
"Valhalla," the banquet hall, was
decorated with festoons of American
flags and a single Swedish flag.
The cover of the menu bore an em
bossed American flag and "America"
was sung at the opening of the ban
quet. The keynote of the whole elab
orate attair was patriotism, American
ism. P. A. Edquist, Swedish vice consul
at Omaha and president of the Noon
day club, was toastmaster. He voiced
the club's hearty welcome to its
guests and particularly to the ladies,
"We want to thank the ladies espe

He sketched the remarkable activi
ties of the Swedes in the building up
of this country from the earliest days
to the present. They were contem
porary with the Dutch and English in
settling the Atlantic coast states and
they pushed on to the west with or
ahead of advancing settlement, pio
neering and making productive farms
in the wilderness to add to the wealth
of the country.
They have built schools and col
leges, have produced great writers, in
ventors, statesmen, and have been a
mightv factor in the buildinff of the
republic, providing a steady, sturdy,
law-abiding and stanchly patriotic
class of citizens. He laid special em
phasis upon the thorough-going
Americanism ot tne Americans 01

claring that with them it is "America
first, last and all the time."
Toastmaster Edauist called upon C.
A. Abrahamson to respond to the
toast to the ladies.
'God made the heavens and the
earth and then man and finally the
finest and noblest of all, woman,
whom we all love and worship," said
Mr. Abrahamson. "Sometimes we
can't do anything with them, but we
never can do anything without them.

Patrick O'Neil in Song Recital.
Rev. S. L. Dowd presented Patrick
O'Neil, tenor, in song recital at the
Brandeie theater last evening, assisted
by Will Hetherington, violinist, and
Bertha Clark, pianist. This was Mr.
O'Neil'a first public appearance in
Omaha since his residence here, and
an audience of fair proportions greeted
him. Mr. O'Neil was evidently suf
fering from a cold, as traces of
hoarseness were frequently heard in
his voice. He enunciates well, and his
tones were free and clear in the mid
dle register. He sang his program
entirely in English. In the group of
Irish folksongs he won much favor
with his audience and after "In Dub
lin's Fair City," the closing number of
the group, he sang three encores,
among them the "Low Back Car."
Mr. O'Neil opened the program with
an aria "Una Furtive Lagrima," by
Donizetti, and sang three groups of
songs besides. He responded to an
encore after each group. Mr. Hether
ington contributed three groups of
violin numbers to the program, play
ing "Gavotte," by Gosscn, "Rigaudon,"
by Monsigny, and the Zarzicki "Ma
zurka" with especial success, and get
ting a broad and musical tone from
the "Old Irish Melody," set by Percy
Granger, which he played as an en
core. Miss Bertha Clark followed both
Mr. O'Neil and Mr. Hetherington
carefully in her unobtrusive and ac
ceptable accompaniments. H. M. R.
