This is one of the most rollicking comic

her admirable support will do it full

the performances of hor company that is
rarely to bo found in companies devoted
to light opera. Thochoius is especially to

close of the first and second acts. Jeannlo

hi:. unnuAitivr's oration'.
Mr. Kdwaid Sayro Gorhardt of Danville,
Pa., whodcllvcred the oration, wasthoora
tor at Gettysjmrg last year. He is a gentlo
man of medium height and very pleasing
personality. His oration conformed to
his personal characteristics. Hosaid, after
paying a tributo to tho dead, that they will
live ns long as tbero is daylight fn tho
world. He said that wo owe to tho Union
soldiers the debt pf eternal gratitude. The
great work of reuniting tho nation wus
sketched by tho orator In language
graphic nnd truthful. "Unity is our
normal condition. For this our ancestors
struggled as they struggled for their inde
pendence: for this thoy contended lu legis
lative halls as they contended on tho field
of battle; for this tho Union soldier fought
in a later contest of war; for this, we too,
must battle in a conquest of peace."
The pre-ent grandeur ot our Nation
afforded him a subject for most in
tercsting talk. Ho also spoke most
eruditely of our future as a nation. His
remarks on that subject wore character
ized by good t-onsQ and a thorough knowl
edge of what was going on. Another sub
ject of hl.s discourse treated of "Tho Ac
cumulation of lte.-orved National Power."
This subject was sketched at length and
very forcibly, as was also tho leaning
tendency In tho opposito direction.
essny was the fact that tho present genera
tion will never reap tho fruits of its labors,
"Biien iickio arguments as ineso carry
their own fallacies with them; for to oboy
such injunctions as these Is to at ouco put
an end to all human achlovnments una to
all patriotic duty. Had such ungenerous
impulses as theso controlled tho heroio ef
forts of tho Union soldiers struggling on
tho Held of bnttlo a grateful people would
not thus as.-cuibloT.o-day to decorato tho
graves of Its martyred dead."
"And well might we, my countrymen,
as wo stand here to-day, in tho midst of
peace and prosperity, the glorious results
of another s labor, exclaim; 'Would that
tho heroes of tho revolution could for an
Instant rise, up from their forgottou graves
to behold tho greatness of their peoplol
Would that rack one of tho kindred spirits
of yonder heights of Arlington could now
burst tho coromeuts of their honored
glares to behold tho splendor of this
Nation's Capital, which they once so
nobly fought to savo!'"
The orator concluded with n moU eu!o
gistic reference to tho memory of tho
Union soldiers, living and dead.

piohslvcly dollvcrod and listened to with
