JamlaorU A uent Editor Herald: Referring to your article on the recent lire, and your good suggestion for improve ment of the burut district, permit a warm friend of your lovely el'y to impress the citizens of Columbia and Maury county with the importance of building a new Court House at the earliest possible time. Your prjseut Court House has Keen its day. Build a new oue ou another H'e; let it be lire proof aud attractive in design, worthy of the coming importance of Columbia with her completed Naliou- ai Arsenal aud fifty eHtah'whe I man ufacturing industries. Utilize the site of your present Court House for a 1 lountaiu dedicated to John Browu, the grand old Scotch-Irish hero who founded your city. Have this Brown Memorial Fountain dedicated with imposing ceremonies by a Scotch Irish Cougress, which would gladly again assemble iu Columbia if it -vited. Do not say that the present Court House site is too valuable for this Memorial rouutaiu. While this mission of art is to soften, elevate and humauize man, it also possesses money value to surroundings. As an illustration, where now stands the most beautiful fountain lu the world (t rerer to the Cincinnati Firth stnet fountain) was but a few years ago the most filthy and unattractive part of Cincinnati. Property in that section was cheap and difficult to sell uri . i .. . wiieu tne lounram was placed iu this once wretched location, pr -perty wout up wun a jump; its surround ings are now built up with palaces, wnere once fcioou novels. A Memorial Foiiuta u on your Pub uc csquare would in like manner benefit Co'umbia. No time should be lost in arraugiug for vour new Court House. Tne destruction bv lire oi tn? present one. would entail untold loss and vexations and unend ing troubles from the burning of recor s, tic. II the ladies of Maurv couuty would organize a John Brown Memorial fountain Association, and apply to your commissioners for the Court House sito whou tho building is removed, I am sure they would be sustained and encouraged by your citizens iu their efforts to beautify Columbia, increase the value of its real estate, and to do justice to the memory of the patriot and Scotch- Irish hero John Browu wuofound- ed Columbia. The desiaru for this suggested historic memorial fountain should come from the braiu aud heart of yoUr gifted home artist, Miss Zollicoffjr. The Old Man. ENTERTAINMENTS. TACKY party.

Tho company do served a larger audience than it had, for their work was really artistic. The prima donna Marie Greenwood who took the partif "Piammeta" grew more aud more upon her audience. Her solo at the beginning of tho fourth act was so grandly sung that she was rapturous ly encored, and hor singing ol "Swing ing iu the Grape-Vine Swing," was so sweetly done that she captivated her audience completely. Asa second en core she sang "Suwanee River," in a sweet and pathetic style. Sharing the honors of tho evening wan the acting an'l singing of Miss Mamie Taylor as "liocoaocio." This artisto'e. line voioo was specially noticeable in the choruses, which were remarkably strong and fine. Her every motion was grace' itself, and she eamo in for her full share of admiration. The pretty Miss Julia Earnest, as "Isabella" the coopers" wife, acted her part well. W. P. Guiberson, as "Lot teringhi, the coojior" and Tom Martin as "Lambertueclo, the grocer" are a pair hard to beat in comedy part. The acting of former as a drunkard could not be Improved on, while the originali ty of latters drollery kept the audience in a roor of laughter. Tho "Coopers' Chorus" was especially well rendered. I'll'? dancing n the ducal palace was one of tlie host things ever seen on our stage. Altogether the company is a strong one, and should they return in February, as they propose, we bespeak for them a hearty reception and packed house, with standing room only. CARD PARTY. Mrs. E. L.
