and all the ministers in the city. The
prevention of all forms of cruelty ia the
aim of the society. Its especial work is
to prevent cruelty to, children, to crim
inals and defective and dependent per
sons, and to animals. This object is
accomplished by the creation of a pub
lic humane sentiment, by the education
of the young to moral sensibility toward
all living beings, and by the punishment
of offenders to the full extent of the
law. During the past year 23,925 cases
of cruelty to children and 99,850 cases of
cruelty to animals were investigated by
the American humane association in a
territory including less than one third
of the United States. A majority of
these cases were settled out of court,
while arrest and imprisonment were
found necessary in some instances. Mr.
O'Hanlon has recently organized eight
een societies in Iowa, and will continue
the work in Nebraska in the following
cities: Nebraska City, Crete, Beatrice,
Hastings, Aurora, Grand Island, Kear
ney, North Platte, Lexington, Central
City, Columbus, Genoa, Schuyler, Fre
mont, Shelby, Osceola, West Point, O'
Neill, Ainsworth and Chadron.
Everything concerning Colonel Stot
senburg is of loving interest to Nebras
kans. A year or two after he graduated
at West Point, General Sherman en
quired about him of an uncle. When
told that he was out west the General
said: "It is a hard life but it pays to
be out there in the long run. That boy
will make a fine soldier and be of use to
his country if he lives and is ever called
upon to do duty in war." In reporting
the old General's remark to the young
soldier stationed in an obscure western
cantonment, his uncle added that he
said to him: "Stotsenburg knew noth
ing but his duty and never drank."
This information especially pleased the
General who "was all smiles in a mom
ent." The letter containing the words
of commendation and prophesy of his
future, is yellowed by time. It was
among Colonel Stotsenburg's treasures
and is an indication of his hopes and
confidence in himself and in his own
integrity and ability.
Governor Savage, his staff, several of
the state officers and a party of Lincoln
citizens went to Omaha on Monday
oveniog to be the gueBts of the Knights
of Ak-Sar-Ben and incidentally to at
tend the concert by Bellstedt's band.
They were met at the train by Presi
dent Fry and the board of governors of
Ak-Sar-Ben, and were driven in car
riages to the corcert tent. After listen
ing to a couple of musical numbers the
visitors were taken to the Ak-Sar-Ben
den, where with appropriate ceremonies
the work of initiation was carried on.
The party of visitors included Governor
Savage and Mrs. Savage, General Col
