in miniature of its musical progenitor. Tho
members are young misses and lads from
seven to fourteen years of(3ge, and thoy
played with a skill and precision that showed
excellent musical abilities, and that reflected
great credit on the careful training of tholr

tened to with great satisfaction byanaudienco
composed of the parents of tho pupils. String
quartette for eight violins, Annie Big

with variations, was rendered by a diminutive
lass of seven years, MissFlorclleEd6on. This

Freischutz," followed by a trio from "Don
Giovanni," solo by Miss Riggles, closing with
a quartette from Handel, "See the Conquer
ing Hero Comes." Great subjects for small
hands, but all acquitted themselves in a
manner that showed good talent and con
scientious work, and their teacher received
