THE ENTERTAINMENT.— The enter tainment held ly the Millheim Liter ary Society on last Friday evening was attended by a large audience. Some of the performances were very good, while others deserve censuring. The exercises of the eveuing were opened with an appropriate prayer by Rev. B. Hengst, followed by a salutatory from Miss Rose Ilarter. The lady perform ed her task in a very creditable man ner delivering her address in a slow, distinct and correct way. The ora tion of Rev. J. G. W. Herald on "Ad vantages of the International Exhibi. Hon" and Mr. W. T. Auman's "Broth er and I," deserve special mention as well rendered productions. Several other orations.declamations and essays were delivered throughout the even ing, of which we would 3ay that the selections of the subjects were good but that the performers did not do them justice. The amateur orators mnst give the study of elocution a lit tle more attention if they would suc ceed in interesting an audience. The vocal pieces sang by the Misses Sallie Musser and Mary Lose, Mr. W. T. Auman aud Mr. J. W. Lose were rich treats aud were ably accompanied on the organ by Miss Cora Kreamer. The tableau representing "Queen Victoria's Royal Court" was one of the best features of the programme and was gotten up iu a brilliant and tasty manner, making a pleasing im pression on all present. Considerable time and work had been spent on this tableau, but the participants were re warded for their labor by the manifest appreciation of the audience. Enter taining dialogues formed part of the programme, among which the well known "Frog Hollow Lyceum*' was received with most favor. We are only sorry to state that some of their pieces were not exactly suita ble !or an entertainment of a Literary society aud would . advise its officers and members to use more care in the future so that no objectionable matter will go on the stage. The people ex pect their entertainments to bo inter esting, instructive and elevating and anything that may have a tendency of lowering the morals or characters of our young people should be avoided on an occasion of this kind, The order in the audience was not as good as it ought to have been and it was at times exceedingly difficult for the parforniers to render their pieces satisfactory. The band eDliyened the occasion by some of their best music. —A sad bereavement befell our friend Jacob Putweiler on Monday in tlio unexpected death of his oldest son, Elmer The young man had only been sick a few days but suffered extremely during his short illness. The deceased was a model young man and had been industriously working on his father's farm ever since he was able to do any woik. It is a severe blow for the giief-striekon family and they have the sincerest sympathy of the community. The funeral took place on Wednesday forenoon and was attended by a large number of relatives and friends. —The other day W. J. Springer call ed us in to look at bis new place of bus iness on Main Street. We found nicely arranged and fitted up rooms which aie to be used for divers enterprises. In the large front room he expects to keep confectioneries, in the two smaller a partmentsto serve oysters and in the backroom to follow his trade as barber. He wants to begin with shaving the pocket books in Vhe front rooms and and put the iinishing touches on the faces of his customers in the backroom. Sometime this week yet he will open his b.tziar and invites his many friends and customers to give him a call. —Again it becomes our sad duty to record the sudden death of one of our neighbors and friends,one who has lived in this community these many years- Mrs. Julia Ann Musser, wife of John G.
