' Mr. Kratt has sung here before, .' knd those who heard him last even-, ling were much impressed with bis . - sympathetic rendition of the tenor , parts.

Those who have not heard the Tri-Clty Symphony orchestra this season were greatly impressed with the pastoral symphony which was a part of the first pat of the oratorio. - Many noticed something unusual in last evening's program when, after Uie introduction to the bass aria by Mr. Kreldler, "The Trump et Shall Sound," Fred Phelps of Davenport, trumpeter' with the Tri nity Symphony orchestra, played the solo and accompaniment. Sel dom in the rendition of "The Mes: s!ah" is this possible, for there are few players of this instrument who are capable of carrying the part "The Messiah" has been given by some of the largest organizations in large, eastern cities with this part omitted 'because of the lark of a trumpeter.

In a short time Berry's arms were working in all directions, grabbing the offerings of cigars 5-centers, 25-centers, 50-centers, and on up. The movements of his arms took on the appearance of . a jumbled mass of traffic signals, and drivers behind those who were Fhowering Berry soon got a worried light in their eyes. They did not know what to do. ' Taking' in tbe situa tion, Berry almost started a smile, but didn't make it. The reporter, however, can vouch for the statement tbat Berry was seen to grin this morning. It was when Berry graciously offered to split 50-50 with the reporter on the cigars.
