Field's minstrels was the attraction at the Comus theatre Monday night, and one 1 of the largest crowds ever in the theatre witnessed the perform ance of this famous organization. Mr. Field has always carried the best there is in minstrelsy, but this year he has excelled himself in securing sweet sing· j funny comedians, arid gra<e ful dancers; and to cap it all, he ι has costumed and scenically mounted the performance on a gorgeous scale. The set of the Panama canal, with the bat tlçghips passing through, was a fine scenic and mechanical pro duction. Burt Swor and Billy Clark U were the principal comedians Uand their gags and antics were riew and mirth provoking. Mention must also be made of the excellent band and orchestra, which furnished some popular selections. Operetta Tonight. ^ 'The Feast of the Little Lan terns," a Japanese operetta, will be given at the Comus theatre tonight by the Arts Club, of Aberdeen, which is composed of about forty of Aberdeen's most talented young people. The operetta met with great favor in Aberdeen, and a second performance was given at the re quest of the music loving public and a still greater suceesswasj scored. The stage settings, floral deco rations and electrical effects will present a veritable Japanese | wonder garden. The operetta should be liber ally patronized, and we hope that a large audience will greet the talented young artists. Methodist Church. I Sunday School at 9:30 a. m.

Ash W. Allen 3o. Y. M. C. A. Notes. "Bottled Sunshine," a lecture delivered at the Y. M. C A· last Friday night by Dr. Robert Ar thur Elwood, the famous pastor of the Boardwalk church of Jer sey City, was a delight and in spiration to all who heard him. Taking as his theme a little boy walking along the boardwalk of Atlantic City with a bottle under his arm throwing sunshine into the faoes of the sour and de spondent people he would meet, he developed a philosophy of seeing life through the eyes of love and beauty. Hating all shams and hypocricy and believ ing in a religion of right living and doing things. Dr. Elwood left in the minds and hearts of his hearers higher ideals and an inspiration to nobler deeds. The Barbashela- Club has put on a series of lectures once a month for its members and friends, the first of which was delivered by Dr. J. H. Green, one of our leading physicians, on "First Aid in Fractures." Dr. Green had an interested and ap preciative audience in the boys, and the club tendered him a ris ing vote of thanks for his in structive and painstaking work. Other physicians and friends in terested in the boys will be in vited from time to time to ad eress the club. This club is doing a real con structive work. Besides having a good social time together they are studying at present "Life Questions of High School Boys," a volume published by the Y. M. C. A. Press and especially adapt ed to the needs of boys. Each boy in the club has signed a pledge to "cut out" cigarettes until he is 21 years old. Basket ball is being organized and will soon be in full swing. Secretary. Masonic Officers Elected.
