Our Opera House was filled oo Monday
evening from footlights to celling with an
appreciative assembly who lent their ears
and eyes to the proceedings of a genuine
army camp-fire kindled by the comrades
of Hamlin Post. Ouly old soldiers can
know tbe old time significance of this sort
of entertainment The men who could
sing comic songs and HI stories found
their true vocation in the center of little
groups of hardy campaigners about the
fires pf fence rails along the valleys and
bill slopes of theSoutb'endurln' de wall."
Thoseexperlences were reproduced on our
stage, where were seen the old flag, stacks
of guns, and the bras twelve-pounder
from the post room. The evening opened
nnder the direction of Post Commander
Lang with martial music by the Brighton
drum corps, led by Uncle Hugh Mother,
who bad been practicing some new pieces
for this occasion. This veteran lifer Is
himself a spectacle worth taking trouble
to see. A few words of welcome were
spokea by the post chapl'an, who sounded
the key note of the entertainment with
"A little nonsense now and then,
is relished by the wisest men."
Brief addresses were ma.le by Past
Commander In Chief Kounts and
bis adjutant general, Enright, both ot To-
ledo. It was pathetic to see the first named
comrade assisted to tbe stage, for, at Mia
slon Ridge the rebels left him but one leg
to stand on. Judge Hlnman spoke learn
edly, and evidently from personal obser
vation on the ''grey-back," a sort of locust
(a low-cuss ''the boys" call it)
that gave no little annoyance to the armies
of tbe rebellion. There was a sword dance
by Prof Melville in Scotch costume, a
tableau, "Tbe Lone Soldier's Grave," lo
which sixteen young ladies as protecting
angels gather about and kueel with tbe
black-robed widow who bu at last found
tbe weed covered grave of her soldier hu.
