atler which the exhibition conunenced.
The stage was most beautifully decorat
ed with evergreens, pictures, etc.
The exercises consisted of vocal and
instrumental mu-ie, charades, dia
logues, essays, deel.-Mii ition-, etc. The
principal ptrformcr were Mr. aijd
Mra.Leesen, teachers of Ilalsey, Jo-lfn,
Jama? and Jennie Pearl, .Tolm -Glass,
T. Powell, J. Wilburn. Mrs. Mansfield,
Sarah Deal, Milton Wilson, and others
of the sehoDl who took subordinate
parU. Mr. M. V. Jones wa-s Stage
Manager. 1 The exercises lasted nearly
four hours, and, judging from the.
frequent and tumultuous applause of
the large audience, were mo-t happily
received. Mi. Jones h-ul only about
two weeks to get ready for the per
formance after it was lirst talked of
and he was chosen as nvtnager. Sev
eral of the pieces had not been criti
cised at all ; the performers hid
seareo'y any practice ; the stage was
very small ; the audience crowded.
In view of all these drawbacks, we
think the exhibition was a big success,
and the performers done themselves
and the thriving town of Ilalsey great
credit. An excellent essay was rr ad
by D. Cooper. One Pkhsknt. '
for the next meeting: President, Rev.
It. J. Thompson ; Vice President, D.
C. Currie; Secretary, V. R. Rlain.
The entire exercises were harmoni
ous and very pleasant:, and cannotf be
without lene'tieial result to the cause,
as the seed was sown on good ground.
We have a strong tenierance force,
and hope to make our power felt.
