conceded that tlio iwrformnnco in ltncntircty

Tho music loving ieoplo of Lincoln had
been on tho tip-too of expectancy for several
weeks regarding tho production of tho beauti
ful cantata by Lincoln talent, assisted by
Prof. Walter D'Enyer, of Duluth, Minn., at
tho Congregational church, Monday and
Tuesday evenings. As a cousoquunco, long
buforo tho tones of tho monster plpo organ
had pealed forth it was found nocossary to
close tho doors against a multitude of pooplo
who ongorly clamberod for admission. Every
avullnblo seat and all tho standing room was
occupied. Boon af tor tho doors woro closed
tho plpo organ sounded forth in melodious
strains which thrillod tho audience. This was
followed by solos and choruses by Lincoln's
bost musical talent.
Mrs. 1'. V. M. Raymond nnd Prof. Will tor
D'Enyer doservo great credit for tho success
of tho cantata, as they labored hard and
