Ashland Ladies Entertained.
The Ashland Ladles' quartet, which ap
peared in Portland during the sessions of
the fruitgrowers the past week, has
been the subject of much social attention.
Many persons have made It their mission
to see that the ladies thoroughly enjoyed
themselves during their stay in this city,
and there is probably no prominent object
of interest they have not seen. The quar
tet is made up of Miss Carolyn D. Roper,
first soprano; Miss Mary Silsby, second
soprano; Mrs. E. L. Chrlsman, first alto;
Miss Esther Silsby, second alto. The
various selections rendered by the quartet
in this city show them to possess pure,
harmonious and thoroughly trained voices.
The soprano. Miss Roper, made a partic
ularly good impression. She has had the
advantage of complete musical culture,
and possesses a fine voice, of excellent
compass and sweet quality.
