having everything (he best, and, in ae1

were guided by (lie idea alone of pleasy
inn the classes as well as the masses,
and In securing Weber's Cincinnati (

have certainly struck the keynote of (
I success, and the finest music ever
given at an exposition will be heard '
during (he holding of the Appalachian j

The Louisville Courier-Journal, '
speaking of Weber's Hand, says: 1
II "Never have the people of Kentucky i
[1 known such.a band as Weber's, which t
i played at the State Fair. Not only '
for excellence and proper musical in- I
1 terpretatlon or for the qualities of *
^ each musician to turn himself into a ,
j song bird, calliope, or a whistle, but
for general good humor, Indefatigable (
B work and cheerfulness with which ^
s they responded to reouests for encores
did Weber's Hand make Itself famous." ^

A quotation from a letter received I
from the manager of the IMttsburg Fx- (
position verifies the foregoing by the
|, following: (
"All those who visited the exposition (
during the season will remember with j
many a tin ill of pleasure tho hours
