Call or address Ad Seibert, Exira, Ia. 8 31 4w We were in attendance at a public gathering one day last week where the vice that prevailed caused us to blush for America's young man hooi. We are not mentioning all of the rottenness that transpired, but there was one act that was the most revolting, disgusting, nause ating thing we ever witnessed. A young man who is not fit to breathe the pure air of this world because of the contamination with which he burdens it, took on a quantity of the "effervescent amber liquid." and proceeded to meander around through the crowd' dropping vile epithets from a putrid mouth. The climax of his deepicable baseness occurred when he turned to a young Jady and with that foul tongue his, inBnlted her with an obscene remark. Like others, we Bimply looked on. The wonder of it is that no one struck him. Gal lantry is surely lacking when such things are permitted. The beast would be less harmless if he were under the ground. The space he occupies in this world is worse than wasted. Our lowest type of brute creation is as far above him, as the stais are above us and his parents would have done more good for humanity if they had spent the time they took to raise him, in raising hogs for the mar ket. The people would have appre ciated their work more, too. We sincerely hope we may never meet such a type of humanity again. Queen Esther. The cantata of "Queen Esther," given at the opera bouae on Friday evening, by Exira home talent, was one of the very beBt performances ever given in our town by home talent—or any other talent for that matter. The costumes were fine, and the chorus of twenty-five voices was especially good, something rarely seen in a town the size of Exira. The acting throughout the entire play showed that the com pany had been drilled by a master hand at the business. The principal characters of the play, that of '"Queen Esther," by Katberine Crane: "King Ahas uerus," by Will WiBsler "Haman, king's counselor," by EdDelahoyde "Mordecai, the Jew," by Frank Hen shall and "Zereeh, Hainan's wif.e," by Anna Gruby, are all artists of of the first magnitude, and their acting drew forth the hearty ap plause of the audience. The only drawback to the com plete success of the play was the small audience that went to hear them. This may be accounted for by several circumstances. A great many of our people were out of town an "East Lynne" show a week previous that buncoed a large number out of their hard earnings, giving almost nothing in return: a great many had just returned from the Chautauqua and had not got rested the early evening threaten ed rain and last but not least, the show was not thoroughly adver tised. The people here knew noth ing of the kind of a performence they were to receive. All we can say now is that those who failed to attend miBBed some thing fine in the way of an even ing's entertainment, and the play ers went away with leaner pocket books than when they came. We trust that our good friends in Exira will not think the Lewis peo ple ungrateful, for if they should ever repeat "Queen Esther" here again, we can almost secure them a crowded house, barring physical impossibilities. The troupe is composed of ladies and gentlemen, who are amontr the best people of their town. Their conduct while here was such as to win the good opinion of all.
