On Saturday evening last, the people of this town and community who patron ized the play given in Town Hall, were • delightfully entertained by the young ladies and gentlemen who gave the dra ma entitled “The Country Doctor.” The play is full of amusing incidents, the “doctor” being mixed-up in many of them. Love, jealousy and misfortune, share an equal part in the drama, but finally the secret of the falsely.accused lady is made known, the death of her untrue husband announced, and the doc tor wins a bride. Between acts one and two, a Japanese song and drill was given by six young , ladies. ] Between the second and third acts, Miss Helen Martin and Master Victor Martin sang a duet, which was much ap preciated by the audience. 1 Between the third and fourth acts a beautiful duet was sung by Miss Hazel Wolf, the leading lady in the play, and Mr. Paul Baard, the sheriff for the occa sion.

A Beautiful Custom. , Young People Sing The Old Christmas Carols. A very pleasing feature of Christmas I Eve locally, was the singing of carols on our streets by a choir of young people of I the Lutheran church. The practice of singing Christmas carols in the open on Christmas Eve is an an nual affair in England, the streets of . I London as well as the cities and villages I of the provinces being filled with the . I “waits” as they are called. The mem | j bers of the local choir, reviving this , 1 ancient and honorable custom, which is now being taken up all over our country in connection with “Community Trees,” etc.; identified themselves with a great movement, which in time will bring the celebration of the yuletide back to its ancient mooring* from which it seems to , have strayed. Christmas has been com mercialized in this materialistic age— everything is of the “made to order” variety—even the Christmas services used by the schools are ground out at so much per measure. They are generally a hodge-podge with a lilt and tilt, with leanings to the operatic and poor opera at that. The old Christmas carols are not the output of mediocrity—they are the effects of inspiration. The music and score show poetry in its true sense and admirable technique. “Adeste Fidelia,” “Brightest and Best of the Sons of the Morning,” “Holy Night” and a number of others never grow old, but their vital ity is such that they show new strength and beauty with each generation. The young people who braved the raw weath er of last Wednesday night are to be highly commended. They sang the old songs and sang them well—the voices blended nicely and in the stillness of the night the effect was very beautiful, in spiring, and to many, especially to those prevented by illness or otherwise from attending the Holy Day services of the churches and schools, they brought com fort and peace. An Appreciative Beneficiary. Midnight Songs. Just as Dec. 24 was passing into Dec. 25, the beautiful carol “Holy Night!” was being sung very sweetly beneath my window as 1 awaken from sleep. The beauty of the carol, and the Christ mas spirit which suggested such kindly, graceful ministration to one who was shut in because of ill health, gave me a pleasure that words can never express, but that a grateful heart will ever cherish. As inexpressible joy was brought to the shepherds watching on Judean hills by the angels’ song more than nineteen hundred years ago, so a sweet peace, like a benediction, seemed to pervade my room as the voices sang this fine old Christmas hymn. Not knowing when I will be able to see the singers personally, I wish to thank each and all most sincerely for their kindness through the columns of our paper and to wish each one “A Very Happy New Year.” _M. Beth Firor. Thomas J. Gilson Dead. As a result of an accident sustained a short while before Christmas and from which he had nearly recovered, Mr. Thos. J. Gilson, formerly of Frederick city, is dead at his home at Elephant Butte, New Mexico. Mr. Gilson was3o years of age, and he leaves a widow, Mrs. Alice Osier Gilson, and two sons, Thomas Richard and Charles Osier Gilson, to mourn their loss. Mr. Gilson had been stationed at Ele phant Butte, New Mexico for the past several months, being in the United States Reclamation Service, being inter ested in the construction of a big dam for the Government; the building of the dam will require about eight years to complete. The accident happened while Mr. Gil son was on his way home, and was pass ing a saw mill. He stopped with a num ber of other people to see what was going on. Suddenly, without warning, a piece of wood was hurled from the saw into the crowd, striking Mr. Gilson on the side of the head. His face was badly mutilated, and he was severely injured. However, he shortly afterward recover ed sufficiently to be about, but from some cause a turn was made for the worse, and his condition became critical, result ing fatally.’ Burns After Motor Thieves. The American Motorists’ Protective Association has arranged with the Wm. J. Burns International Detective Agency to establish a special department at their headquarters in twenty leading cities, for the detection, apprehension and pros ecution of motor car thieves or other depredators on members of the Associa tion.
