TCUNDY & MCCLURE, J^HS. -a-i,^ Onamia, Minn. The G. A. R. Entertalument:' 2 he fife and drum entertainment given at the opera house last Tuesday ight under the auspices 6f Wallace T. Rines post was a big success, the house being packed. Major Hendersho,t and his son, the former with the drum and the latter with the fife, were the great attraction. The major is as much at home with a drum as a child is with some favorite top in its nursery. With the silver drum presented to him by Horace Greeley through the hands of General Winfield Scott, and the drum the W. R. C. and G. A. pre sented him at a national encampment at Indianapolis, he brings back very vividly the memories of the field and camfires of '61-'65. His son's accom paniment on the fife makes complete the patriotic musical combination. The major can get all kinds of music nut of his drum, from the faint echoes of an old song to the roar of musketry and cannon. His imitation of a battle was certainly fine, as was also his imi tation of an engine pulling a heavy train up grade, the passage through the tunnel, and the run down the grade. He interspersed his program with some local hits, all done in a happy, pleasant manner. He was as sisted by local talent, Dr. Tarbox, Mrs. Cooney, M. L. Cormany, Prof. White, Mrs. Burgan and daughters, and Mas ter Chas. Brace all participating in the program, with readings, recitations and musical selections. The Prince ton orchestra furnished several selec tions during the evening and is to be congratulated on the character of its music. The Princeton band furnished street music, for all of which voluntary contributions the G. A. R. wishes to return thanks. As a closing hit Major Hendershot called all the old soldiers present onto the platform while all joined in singing ''The White Army Bean A team belonging to Frank Kaufert ran away last Monday while in town and made things lively for a few min utes.
