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.

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
