WATTS MILLS RAND
GIVES CONCERT PRIDAY
Will Play on the Public Squate Frid'py
Afternoon at 2:80 O'cloek.
The question of "What ha become
of the Watts Milla Concert Bland?" is
about to bp answered, as this organiza
tion will give a concert on tbe steps
of the court house in Laurens onFri
clay afternoon, December 24th, at 2:30
The process of geting into shape to
give a public performance ha., been
necessarily slow, (ue to the fact that
none of the members were familiar
with the first principles of music and
naturally -had to begin at the first. In
addition to this handicap,' it w
found necessary to increase the num
ber of instrungents, -and this set the
banyd back sewbat in order for the
new members to become proficient. it
was also necessary to make a change
in -thie directorship, but it is; believed
tha thue change was made fa .the bet
ter as the present director hA c, in 'the
short time he hias had charge of the
band, made excellent p1)rogress;.
The :band now has oan Iia rumenta
tion of 26 pIeces as follows: -
Corneta-W. 'M. Wod,,sohoist; - I.
