old and of little value, and the loss on it

WATER AT 400 FEET
Redmond Drilling Operations Prova
To Be Big Success
A large audience greeted the members
of the German M. E. choir who cave a
sacred concert in Sanford's Hall at this
place last Tuesday evening, and that the
musical treat of high order was enjoyed
and appreciated by all who heard it was
attested by the very generous applause
which followed each number of the
program. The German Methodist choir
enjoys a reputation throughout the
county for the high standard of the
music rendered by them at their weekly
services, several members of the choir
being highly accomplished musicians.
This reputation was fully sustained at
Tuesday evening's concert, in the ren
dition of a program which was greatly
enjoyed by all. In addition to the mus

Hoffman, Mrs. Hoffman and Miss Anna
C. Schrieher contributed greatly to the

by the choir, a male ouartet comiK)sed
