Entertainment at Carus.
On Last Saturday evening an excellent
entertainment was given at the Carus
schoolhouse for the benefit of the li
brary fund. The house was crowded to
the doors with an appreciative audience,
and ample money was raised to purchase
a good collection of books. The program,
consisting of recitations, songs and dia
logues, was well rendered in every par
ticalar, and each number elicited hearty
applause. Special men tun should be
made of the music rendered by William
Inskip, Miss Lulu Hay ward and Fred
Lindsey, William Inskip, Jr., rendered
a solo in a manner highly pleasing to all.
and another feature of merit was an ad
dress by Howard M. Brownell, of Ore
gon City. He spoke for 25 minutes to
the young people on the importance of
(elf-improvement, and closed with earn-
eet words of encouragement to old and
young. The close attention given him
by his hearers might well be the envy
of more experienced speakers than he.
Some time in the near future another
entertainment will be given, which, it
is hoped, many will attend. H. H.
