especially pleasing. It consisted ot
vocal eolos, readings and recitations.
Mr. Turner has a deep, well-tonea

tilty of expression rarely found in a
heavy voice. Mrs. Vanderhoef's ac
companiments were of their usual
standard of perfection.
Miss Patterson gave two readings,
and the encores showed a deep appre
ciation of talent unalloyed. The vocal
duet by Miss Williams and Miss De
Camp, brought out once again the fact
•that Grand Forks has singers of rare
ability. Their voices blended harmoni
ously, and they received hearty en
cores. Miss Pauline Allen also favor
ed the company with a vocal selection,
in which attracted the genuine ad
miration of those present. Her se
lections have a freshness which finds
ready response In the human heart.
Mrs. Irish presided at the Baldwin for
