Last Thursday night as announced in the News, Mr. U. S. Allen, of Jasper, gave a series of dramatic re citations and impersonations. At the commencement he said by way of introduction that he had so construct ed his program that the last numbers would be the best, and he did just exactly as he said he would. The first piece on the program was "Why is Marriage a Failure," which was given in the Dutch dialect. Ow ing to the strange acoustic properties of the building, with which Mr. Al len was not familiar at first, it was rather difficult to understand him but but that defect soon parsed away. No. 2 was, "When Samuel led the Singing," being the lament of an old fellow at modern innovations. The third number, "Dead, Name Un known," was well given, and as Mr. Allen was warming up to his work the changes of character were very marked. "Tim" was a s'ruple story very affecting. For a fifth number, Mr. Allen re cited Poe's "Raven," and earned merited applause. He apologized to the audience tor his imitation of the voice of the raven, but it was un necessary as the sound could not pos sibly be mistaken for anything else. Number 6 was Hamlet's address to his father's ghost, with the parts of Horatio and Marcellus thrown in. It was a fearfully difficult task, but Mr. Allen acquitted himself admir ably. The next number was also from Hamlet, being the scene when Hamlet slays Polomus and charges his mother with her crimes. These two numbers are deserving of special mention as it was a bold undertak ing to even attempt to render them. The "First Sermon of the New Minister," was a complete change from the frightful scenes of a mo ment before and made the audience fairly roar, and the climax was a 'stunner.' The "Columbus" story of the tramp was also humorous and its ab surdity was much enjoyed. Mr. Al len's last was a parody on Will Car leton's, "Betsy and I are Out," given in the German dialect. It was both humorous and pathetic, and it called forth generous applause. It fact it left the audience in that happy state of mind that they wanted more. Mr. Allen gave a good entertain ment, and the evening was very en joyably spent. It is to be regretted that there was not a larger number present to hear him. .However, knowing now what Mr. Allen can do next time he appears we trust he will meet a larger house. -0 I) -o- C"0R the next 4 months we expect to close out our entire stock of goods, both at Whitwell and Pike ville, as we are going out of business in the Valley. ffer Goods Cheaner Than Ever Sold Here Before.
