The Harugari Maennerchor of Ann Arbor will celébrate the glorious Fourth by dedicating their new and beautiful flag, which has just arrived from the well known and justly popular Mrs. Hermann, of Detroit. On the obverse side of the flag, on a chrome yellow field, on a pedestal composed of the shield and coat of arms of the society, stands the goddess of music and song, with right hand supporting a lyre and left hand holding aloft a scroll. Around the pedestal is worked a wreath of oak and laurel and a streamer bearing the date of the society's organization; above, and forming an are, the words: "Harugari Maennerchor." On the reverse side, on blue field, on pedestal composed of the shield and coat of arms of the United States, the American eagle, the corners neatly workëd in with oak and laurel. The whole work is silk embroidery. It is a true work of art that must be seen to be appreciated. The German-American societies of Ann Arbor, Chelsea, Dexter, Ypsilanti and Saline, and male choirs of Detroit will particípate in the festivities. A grand procession of all societies wül parade the principal streets and march to Relief Park, where the Hon. B. F. Thompson, mayor of the city, will deliver an address of welcome and the exercises of dedication will take place. Good music, dancing in the afternoon and evening and a good time generally is assured. "He who not wine, wife and sona. Rematas a fooi his whole life long." "
