Mr. Allen's Recital.
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
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.
