House Thursday evening, )December

Is especially pleased at being able to
secure this attraction, as it was rot

higher priced number than lie origin
ally contracted for. The songs of four
centuries, the "Puritan Period," tlie
"Colonial Period," the "Abolitionist
Period" and the ".\lodern Period" is
expectedt to be a most pleasing part
of the program.

Broad Street Methodist Episcopal
v. Thonas .J. .1. Wright, Pastor.
Oct. 18, 1916.
Ye Olde New England 'Choir appear
ed upon the platform of the Broad
Street Methodist Episcopal Church last
night in a programme that was highly
instructive, and intensely interesting
as well as extremely entertaining. The
costumes, solos, duets and the quartet
work was of the best. We could not
allow them to depart without person
ally thanking them.
The reader, Miss Ruble, was one of
the best that we have ever had, and
ranks among the best in her line. Her
dialect readings were perfect, and her
entire list of readings were of the best.
Best of all they were not a rehash of
the -old and worn-out recitations.
The entertainment of last night has
left a good taste for what is to follow
in the course.
(Signed) Thos. J. J. Wright.
Mi. Switzer states that he still has
season tickets for sale and would be
glad to dispose of them to 'those who
desire to see the entire program.
