Coat of Arms-----Mr. Frank Kestinmaucher Sr. had on exhibition during Christmas the German coat of arms.  It was carved by him and was entirely of wood, was beautifully finished, and was a correct representation in every respect.  The two-headed eagle was in white and grey, while the crowns, mace ball, etcetera were inlaid with gold.  The flag was of pale blue silk, inlaid with red.  The eagle was 3 feet in height and 3 feet across.  Its cost was valued at $25.00.  Mr. Kestinmaucher has sent it to Hamilton as a Christmas present to his son-in-law, Chris Wurtz.
