The bass solo by Mr. Davis was excellent. Mrs. Carrie L. Smith rendered a selection from Dun bar on Thanksgiving Day and tile Turkey which was very fine. D. O. Yates recited ttie “Black Regiment” in a masterly and elocutional manner. The piano solo, by Mrs. Nettie Grady, was. as expected, a classic rendition of tlie best. Duet by Miss Nancy Brown and Mrs. D. O. Yates was superb. Airs. Warrick’s solo, “Dream ing," was very sweet voiced and highly creditable. Mrs. Roie Hunter was praiseworthy. A humorous chorus song by twelv.e voices, “Funky Funk," was very entertaining. The entire program proved satisfactory. Mr. Lemuel Taylor, a coal' miner, died here very suddenly last week.

This play, now almost a classic, is certainly one of the most remarka ble dramas of the day. It is now in the sixteenth consecutive season on the American stage. Time, that fright ful ravager of dramatic life, does not harm it, fate always plays with it. It stands In the front rank and holds' its own with the best of the modern plays of the day. The charm of the piece lies in Its perpetual freshness and vigor. Its heart interest is sim ple and direct, its scenic attractive ness does not depend upon any pass ing- fad, and its most thrilling scene has for its foundation that most stir ring contest, the horse race. There is nothing temporal or fading in the whole play. For this reason it is as good today as it was yesterday, and as good yesterday as sixteen years ago when it was first produced.
