August Hagenow and his band car
ried off the firat prize of three hundred
dollars at the Woodmen band contest
at St Paai, Minnesota, last week. Not
satisfied with this distinction, they ako
captured the firat prize of twenty-five
doUara for the beat appearing band in a
Woodsaan parade at Minneapolis. Citi
zens of both St. Paul and Minneapolis
declared the Hagenow band to be beet
balanced maeical organization ever
heard in those cities. Twenty bands
were in. attendance, isclading Bsveral
profeaaionil organizations; but only two
cared to compete for the prize: the West
Superior band of Wisconsin and the
Flour City band of Minneapolis, the
latter composed entirely of profession
als. The fact that Mr. Hagenow's
band won the first prize at Kansas City
two years ago frightened the others
away from the contest. The selection
on which the marking was done was the
difficult Von Weber overture "Oberon."
This number also appeared on the pro
gram at the band concert at the audi
torium on Tuesday night. It is an
old saying that a prophet is without
honor in his own country; but the resi
dents of Lincoln have occasion for great
pride in an organization like the Hage
now band, and during the summer
monthB their concerts at the auditorium
will be a source of great pleasure, and
should receive enthusiastic support from

there is no place like the country. The '
hens' cackling, little chickens peeping,
birds singing, cows lowing, been hum

the spirit into a content and repose un
known to the residents of a city, and
adds: "Let me go where-e'er 1 will 1
hear a sky-born muBic still."
