It was a happy and thanktul crowd that

But it was wcll to open its doors for tho

grand words of Shakspearo mado a noblo
cliristening service. Tlio gloomy Trag

and carpct aro added, old Bennington
will possess a llouso equal to many in
tho largest cities.
To old Beuningtonians, it does not
seem so vcry lotig ago that Apolco Hall
was built ou South St. It was, for many
yoars our only gathering placo. It was
a proud day for Bennington when
Library llall was given to tho villagc,
aud it has seryed us well for thirty
yuars. But tlio old hall had its hmita

rcmarks that wcro mado about liim and
his work last Saturday ovening, I think
ho would havo rcalized that tho peoplo of
Bennington apprcciato what he has dono
for them. Wnon a man does a kind, aud
aud helpful, and unsolllsh dccd, it is
pleasanc for liim to know that it is ap
preciatcd, and it is wcll that Mr. I'utnam
sliouhl bo told that wo rcalizo our ooli
gations to hira,
It is wcll understood that an Opora

Bennington owes Mr. II. W. Putnam a
debtof gratitudc, not only for rclieving
us from tho discomforts of Library Hall,
but for giving to acountry town a motro
politan Opera Ilouse. a. r. v.
"Wliere Aro WeAt?"
Mr. Edltor. This was tho qucstion that
many Bennington pooplo asked thcm
selvcs as thoy sat in tho dainty little thc
atre, so artistically dccorated, that was
opencd to the public on Saturday oven
ing. One could hardly believo them
sulves in Bennington, and all familiar
with Troy and Albany kuow that thcre
is nothing that cau cumparo with it in
either placo so that it really aeemed as
if one wero in New York, with the ex
ception that those who are in the hablt
of attonding tho theatre out of town did
not havo tho uncomfortablo fecling that
thoy would probably havo to loso part
of the last act in ortlcr to catch the train.
Ono of the reasons that Library Ilall has
not bcen bottor patronizcd is that many
dld not havo proper oreralls to woar that
would be in kseping with tho placo, but
this difllculty no louger prescnts itself as
no ono has any clothos too flne to woar
in this charming teraplo of art and
amuscment. It was notcd with much
plcasiiro that somo of our prominent
citizens appearcd in ovening dress and
while it is sometimes a little bother af
ter a busy day to drcss for the thcatro wo
aro suro that the rellning iufluenco and
tho pleasure it givcs othsrs will atnply
compensate for tho oxtra troublo. It is a
great mistako that peoplo who can afford
to do things haiidsomely do not do to
for fear of being considercd snobbish or
tryiiig to outshine thoir nclghbor. It
was only a fow years ago that tho car
riages used by some of our wealthy citi
zens and Bummer visitors wcre a dis
gracc, not only to thcmsolves and the
town, but to tho hnndsomo horses, for
which our State is noted, that wero com
pellcd to draw them. Whethnr it was
horso or man that kickcd we know not,
but tho fact is, to-day ono of the
chief attractions of our villago is tho
large numbcr of artistic turnouts that
actually give as much pleasuro to your
humblo servant and hundreds llko him
that go afoot or walk as thoy do to tho
gentlcraen who aro ablo to possess them.
If our poople would rcalizo a little moro
the amount of pleasure thoy can ciyo the
whole community by paying a little moro
attcntion to tln nicctics of lift, taking
for their cncouragcment the progress
this town lins made in tho last tive yuars,
it will not bo long beforo tho question
will bo askod in all parts of our town as
was askcd in our new thcatro,

The best ovidtnce of a man's skill, me
