which he held in the bank, and in
each he displayed conspicuous abil

Lotus Glee Club, on Feb
The Lotus Glee Club will appear in
Newberry on February eigteenth to
round out the successful lyceum
course. The company come highly
recommended and praised by all who
have had the pleasure of hearing its
artistic concerts, and will do doubt
less prove the climax in a course
which has been thoroughly appreciat

is the desire of the management to
sell a great many tickets, in addition
to the season tickets, as an opportun
ity will be effered to the music-loving
citizens of the town to enjoy a treat
which they cannot afford co miss.

critics were unanimous in pronounc
ing their part-singing the finest they
had ever heard or believed possible.
The Club enjoys a unique distinction
from other quartettes, having the
prestige of a distinguished European
success in addition to its high rank
among leading American organiza
