Children's Day was celebrated by the Germans last Saturday. The little ones, dressed in holiday attire, marched through the principal streets to the music of the Manning band and then repaired to the hall where the exercises were held. In the rifle contest for the Kingship Francis Radeleff was the winner; Charlie Ohrt second; George Radeleff, third; Henry Wendel, fourth Ferdinand Hell, fifth. In the jug-breaking contest Miss Clara Claussen was the winner and declared Queen for the next year. After these contests the children were given the floor and a right merry time they had until ten o'clock at night dancing to the music of Professor Lyden's orchestra.

German children's day, which was due on the 22d inst., (inst. - means in the current month) was postponed until today on account of stormy weather. At 12:30 a procession, composed of children, escorted by the band, will parade the principal streets of the city, after which the children will repair to the hall where they will dance and have a merry-making time in general. In the evening the children will occupy the floor until 10 o'clock when the older ones will take a turn around.
