The concert given by the Esta­
cada Choral society on Friday even­
ing at the Liberty Theater was in­
deed a treat to the local public due
to its fine rendition and type of
numbers chosen.
Under the able direction of Mr.
David Horner, of Dodge, the follow­
ing numbers were sung by the chor­
us: National Hymn, “To Thee, O
Country,” “ Bridal Chorus,” “Lulla­
by,” Brahms, “Olaf Trygvason,”
“The Dancers,’ ’ “Li’l Liza Jan e,”
“Glor'a,” Mozart, “Angel of Peace”
“ Wanderer's Night Song, by Ruben-
stein, as sung by Mrs. Fred Horner
and Mrs. Harry Kitching was most
pleasingly given and they were
called upon for an encore.
Miss Ruth Dillon sang “Hark, the
Robin’s Song,” delightfully, and al­
so responded with a second number.
The “War March of the Priests”
was played by Messrs. Ahlberg, Ba­
ker and H, Horner on the violins
and cello and proved very enter­
taining to their listeners.
An old time song, “A little Farm
Well Tilled” was revived again and
as given by Messrs. H. Horner, Ba­
ker and F. Horner “bronght down
the house” with laughter and they
were compelled to sing it a second
time much to the delight of the aud­
A quartette consisting of Mr. and
Mrs. F. Horner 4 Miss Ruth Dillon
and Harold Horner sang "A Regu­

more opportunity for dramatics.

accompanist for the entire program

The Choral society is composed
of about thirty or forty local mu­
sicians and is putting in a great,
deal of time and effort in making
this chorug a truly big asset to the
