Those who remember the minstrel show given by tlie Ethan Allen club four years ago. and that number Includes, about overvbody wnn ever goes to tho theatre, will be glait to learn that anoth er entertainment of a similar character j contemplated. The plan was formu la tod at a musical smoker in the assemb ly hull of tlie Etluuis' -lub house Friday evening, when "'. II. Wilder, the energet ic conductor of tho former entertainment and a few other musicians rendered a most enjoyable vocal and instru mental programme. There were flute solos by Mr. Wilder, bailtone num bers by William Konerison of Montpeller, tenor .selections by F. I'. Jlitclull, with Pianist ITeston of The Strung theatre, as anompanlst. At the close of tho reg ular programme, Arthur Ulnkn. an em ploye of tho club, was invited to Mng, and fairly captivated his hearers with his rich baritone voice and tlie sympathetic manner in which he handled it. Then ns ii lilting finale some of those who took pail in tlie minstrel show four years ago sang Die stirring opening chorus. There was a largo attendance of members of tin- club, nil of whom were glad to seo the assembly hall put to such ploasant sc. During thp evening Dr. D. C llawley, piesident of the club, brought to the attention of those present u. proposed entertainment along the lines of the form er minstrel show but on a mora nrc- lentlous scale. Mr. Wilder thjn outlined Hie plan. He has in preparation an oner- itic extravaganza nnd has already ar- uigeu mucli of the music for it. The scene Is laid on tho Mississippi rher and a well-defined plot runs through tile two acts. The Hist act is a lluht oner.t. choruses, solos, duets and trios nnd tho second act Is of a minstrel character, Tlie pickannlnny choius nnd tho other turos of the former enertalnment will not be omitted and between the acts there will no tome high class selections by the Whll tier orchestra of 20 pieces, which hits mic ceeded the well known Wilder orchestra, Mr. Wilder' .scheme met with tho Ii.stant approval of the members present, ns win shown by the unanimous rising vote which was taken. J he entertainment will bo given in The Strong theatre rn at least two evenings and it was suggested that It be made a part n. the celebration of tho Mill anniversary of the formation of tho F.tliai, Alien Engine company, out of which tho Ethiiu Allen club has grown. This occurs en April 7 of next year. Committees to have the affair in cliaiKo will probably lie nppointei' soon, although' it is not likely that rehearsals will begin until nfler tho holiday. Mr. Wllder's Durllngton pupils In voice, piano an-1 flute have now reached such a numhQi' that 'ho lias prnclicnJIy decided In make this city his home In the future. The Ethans have tnver failed to make t success of anything they have under taken and with Mr. Wilder in the city i,t nil t'mes to direct and advise, the coming enterta'unient will rank with that given four years ago. That will be satisfaction nough. H Skin of Beauty is r Joy Forever . R. T. Fallx Gouraud s Orlantal Croam or Magical tJooutlflor Remove Tan.
