a social and musical entertainment at
the residence of O. II. Heath. Tuesday
evening. Among the attractions of the
evening was some v.eal music rendered
by the renow ned and celebrated "Prof.
Sprinkle Pomes" and his famous class
of eight stars. The large house of Mr.
Heaths' was packed, about one hundred
and fifty persons being present. It
was observed that the folding
doors of a large room w ere kept closed
and guarded, while inutterings and om
inous sounds proceeded t herc-frorn and
caught the ears of the listening ones,
many conjectures were made and nu
merous questions asked concerning the
evil tines in the Pandemonium, fears
were soon dispelled by some spiritual
and unsi en hand pushing the folding
doors apait and lo! and behold, instead
of the seven Muses, or any of the won
ders of Pluto's lea'm. there stood th
grand and imposing form of Prof. Sprin

in a large canvas stretched across the
room there appeared eight faces repre
senting the eight notes of the scale, at
a given signal from the "Prof.", they
ran the scale and the delighted specta

'Suwanie River' was then most sublime
ly sung and the "Three Black Crows"
liad a thrilling effect upon all as the
last note died away. eveiylody was
hoarse wi thlaughter'but quickly gath
