The Harris-Chapman Con cert. The Epworth League was very for unate in securing the Harris-Chap man entertainment for last Tuesday evening. The house was packed with eager listeners before the hour for commencing tbe program. Miss Chap man has a very strong, rich voice, per fectly trained with which she could fill a hall many times larger than tbe court room in which the concert was given. She was accompanied in all her pieces by Mr. Harris on the piano. Mr. Harris demonstrated to all who had tbe pleasure of listening to him that he is a musician of rare ability for one so young, and tbe fact that the training be has received has not been wasted was appreciated by all. All of his music was of a difficult kind far beyond an ordinary player. Miss Bartlett, the reader was enthus iastically encored for the one selection she favored the audience with, and generously responded with a pretty piece. In connection with musical enter tainments we believe it not out of place to say that the average person who attends the entertainments in towns of this size is not educated to the high standard one must attain in order to thoroughly appreciate the classical music given by accomplish ed musicians such as Miss Chapman and Mr. Harris. We do not mention this as a criticism, but simply to sug gest that one or two simple and fami liar pieces would be well received by the average audience.—Observer. Dr. W. E.
