Thus was the first act of the dramat- j
Latlon of "Hiawatha" enacted, and the
audience of 2. 000 appreciated the in-'
t rprctation of Longfellow's eplr In
dian poem with continued applause!
Th- true Indian setting, the skill and j
attention to detail with which the j
parts were enacted, called forth mer- ,
!od commendation, p.nd as the play,
progressed and the life of Hiawatha ;

been enacted by local talent. '
