U., on Thuiradaj of lut week, drew a good taouae and vai OM O( tbe most mot* able eveota* aa a looal entertainment that has ooconedlb this citjr tor torn* time.' In itself it wassomeWbafc of an ot Iginal tdear by which fcba married ladies should take tbe places of a jrounger generation, and contest for an eiocoyonary prise. Tbe result however, amply luatlfledthe 4xperl mei^bolih to makiag aa loUrMtiog program aodln aflnanoial^ray. The program was lnterspbised with mas* lcalselections, both vocaland^pstru mental, the latter being the married ladies orchestra, and not a mitn was seen to be in It, and tM whole pro: ceedings whereof the feminine gen* der, and showed what tbe ladies Ciao do as entertainer* whan thcg choose. Anyway the "lords of creation*? would hardly do better ir can we would like to be there: The Indjr contest ants esch and all did good work and it was a revelatlon to the audience to learn tbe talent that has lain dor mant so long. Mis. 0. B. Harris was adjudged, the medal and though there were at least two Close seconds thp judgment was fully endorsed by the audience. Her selection was highly dramatic in chai^iter. and action and voice, was splendidly done. The piece was entitled "Sworn Off*, and in part represented a man with the delirium tremens. "A Ohgjst: mas Story" by Mrs. J. K.Swltxer. was so pathetically, rendered- tb*t many of the aadience tbto tears. Mrs. 3. P. COOUWCI' di p^u.__ nearly ttmveited Moore gave the "New Crusade" In which one of the crusaders tells the story of converting:- a saloon keeper and assisting him to literally bireak uir his business, and Mrs. Moore told the utory in a very realistic mabner. Mrs. G. W. Ryan spoke In a clea? con vincing manner "What it Costs." Mrs. F. Feldman's selection "In tbe Kegs" was another affecting bit of pathos which carried the audience into visible sympathy. In the above comments the reporter does not desire to be, understood to ive judgment as to tbe relatlvemer or the contestants other tban to \ndicate tbe general program, and can only add that each'of the ladies did well. Tbe Judges were Messrs Frazer| Healey, and Hartley Df Em erson. The prooeeds were about $37. "\*riwhich apart went to the Fargo for the friendless."
