A fair-oiz-d and appreciative audi enoe enj ije J tbe [entertainment given last night at the Grand for the bejiedf of Brunswick Library. /The program consisted of a reoital of “E ioob Arden” and humorousjk-' lections, by Mias May Agnes Jolley, and a musical and vocal concert by tbe Marina bar and and loading local amateur vooalista. Miss Kelly, tbe talented elooutiooist, very effectively reolted “Enooh Ar den,” bolding her bearers entranced from beginning to end, swaying them to teara with ber pathos, thrilling them with her emotional powers, and' arousing their mirth with her humor out sketches of “Naming the Kittens," and “A Naughty Girl in a Hotel.” M iss Kelly’s every gesture and move ments were the embodiment of grace. The warm plaudits wbioh greeted her efforts were well earned. The Marine bind’s selections, under the able manage ment of Prof. Baum gartner, were well received. Mrs. A. J . Crovati’s sole, “O Prom ise Me," was applauded, and ebe,ln appreciation, gave as an encore, “My Liu.” 'l'be quartette, "Home, Sweet Home,” by Meedamea Raymond and (Jrovatt and Messrs. Raymond sud Smith, was very sweetly rendered. The “Blue and Gray,” by Mrs. Ray mond, with a tableau in the back ground, representing the Confederate and On on eoldier in their respective uniform-, Impersonated by Messrs. Tworaey, Butts and B iley, was re ceived with enthusiasm. Mrs. Ray mond gave as an encore, “In May." Mr. A. W. Smith’s solo, “Deep Dowp, Deep,” again aoored a hit. Asa whole the entertainment was excellent, the only incident to mar the evening being the loud talking and whittling indulged in by persons in the lobby, wbioh at one time waa such as to interrupt the elocutionist in the midst of her reoitation. iC.
