The Good Templars inttsrtalnr.tent.
The free entertainment given under
the auspices of the Good Templars
lodge of this place in Duffle's hall
Tuesday evening was very largely
attended there being in the neighbor
hood of 300 present. It was a very in
teresting affiir and crowned with the.
completest success in every particular.
The proceedings were opened with
prayer by Rev C. B. Clark followed by
s few remarks from the chairman, "W.
C. T., C. Cooper. Next came a chorus
by the choir and then Sis Lottie Utley
gave a recitation entitled "The Rum
Seller," which sho did in a very
efficient manner. The chorus entitled
"Drink. Drink" was well rendered by
the choir. The F3say by J3ro J. .
Dufflo enclosed, abundant thought cm
the subject of "Prohibit the traffic and
savo the Drunkard." The quartctto
produced by Pro Cooper, "Wells and
Mitchell and Sis Holden seemed to
please the audience very .much. Sis
A. G. Brown gave a reaPing which
was listened to with interest by all.
Sis Ella Fraser sang a Eoh entitlad
"Wheio is my boy to-night," assisted
in the chorus by Pro Cooper and
Mitchell and Sis Holden. Si9 Praser'a
talent for singing is already known so
wo need not make any further com
ments. Pro Pettis made a very en
thusiastic speech on the evils of intem
perance declaring he would liot vote
for a man if he be a supporter of the
liquor traffic. Sis Hattie Holden ren
dered a solo which was well received
by all. Pro C. P. Clark spoke ten
minutes on Temperance and the work
that 6hould be d.ma by the temperance
folks. Applause after applause came
from the audience which showed the
sentinentottho.se present cm the points
brought forward by Pro Clark, who;
we must say proves himself a very'
able and efficient temperance orator.
The dialogue entitled "The Bridal
"Wine Cup" was produced by Broi J.
S. Dullie, J. MeArthur, Jas Cooper,
W. AVells, Sis Creighton, Ella Fruser,
Malora (1 randy. Sis Creightivi took
the part of bride and recited well her
part. Pro C. Cooper again took the
floor and expressed himself in regard
to temperance after which the enter
tainment was closed by tho choir sing
ing "Sparkling little fountain " "We
are confident if the lodge male, rp
their minds to have another entertiiu
ment fome time this winterand charge
ir admission, that the lull will be
packed full. This society arc doing
good work and we would rejoice t
see the wholo community join hands
and push this noble cause, then we
would have a peacful town and the
