Cases of mistaken identity and absent mindedncss frequently occur, but seldom are they more amazing or more happily settled thau the one that took place near the Fkke Tuadek office yesterday morning. A farmer (name omitted) drove up in front of a grocery store and hitched his team and went away to do some trading. Soon after one of the bovs of the store had occasion to tie the team in another place a few feet distant to facilitate loading the grocer's wagon. This done it was driven away, and farmer No. 2, a stranger to No. 1, drove up and tied his team where No. l's was first tied, and went into the store. There was some slight resemblance between tlie two, and the buggies were much alike. In a few minutes No. 1 came back, untied bis (?) horses and proceeded to drive away. No. 2 thought some one was taking undue liberty with his team and rushed out like mud, demanding, "What are you doing with my team?" dec. No. 1 was aghast, looked at the man, at the team he was driving, and then at his own team that stood tied within 20 feet of him. Words failed him, and when he comprehended how near he had been taken for a horsctliief, the misery depicted on his face was very comical. The bystanders roared with laughter. Finally No. 1 stam mered out his explanation of how he left his team, was thinking of other matters w hen he drove off, and well, the whole affair was passed as one of those funny jokes a man will innocently play upon himself sometimes. ley.

Tim concert at the Congregational church on last Tuesday evening was the most sue cessful local affair that has been given in U. tun a this season. It was really something unusual In its array of talent. The vot alNts also were In splendid voice, und the whole programme was given with splendid spirit. The orchestra never performed better, and their music was a genuine treat. Mrs. Wright was very kindly received, singing with -itat-cr effect than we remember her to have given ever before, her voice und execution having improved greatly during the years she had been uway from Ottawa. On encore she gave "Tlie Last Rose of Summer." Miss Whittle- soy wus cordially greeted, of course, und fill- ly equulletl all the expectations of her friends. Her voice hail improved in quality during tlie year and her execution is better than ever. She has acquired much of the manner of the professional, naturally, and shows a decided dramatic talent. She was rupturously en cored, giving "Swanee River." Miss Grant sang with her usual good taste. She Is a fa vorite in Ottawa, and on recall, gave the charming "Maid of Dundee." A splendid quartette, Mrs. Wright, Mrs. Brose Jordan, Messrs. Kendall and Prlt hard, gave Ken dall's " Rock of Ages," a very fine creation, show ing Mr. Kendall to be not simply a sing, er, but a real musician of not a little creative genius. The female trio were not the least enjoyable part of the programme. Mr. Jor dan Is a new voice to Ottawa audiences, but it Is so rich and so well cultivated, she will no doubt be heard often again. They made charming selections and executed them faith fully and tastefully. Miss Evans again showed herself one of the most accomplished pianists lu the city, and delighted the musicians in hearing; though a selection less artistic would have pleased the major part of tho au dience more, we think. The audience wus very large, nearly filling the church, and all were enthusiastic In the expression of praise. Mrs. .lane Cnlleii, mother of Hon. Win.
