The program was tlio name a» given hero on the previous occasion, but wan none the I em enjoyable an each of the eizlit young ladies in the company grace, beauty and talent, i combination, which in ever pleadnr; to entertainment lovern. Tho company appeared as the Wo-luati'i! elub of Symphony City, having a dress rehearsal. The concert Included voeal and Instrumental »election» and readings all ......... the highest possible order. MIsji Fowler, the render, who made hiicIi a Hplen-dld Impression hero on her firat appearance, emphnslzed her claimn to ponlnrlty by cleverly rendering hcv-era I selections In a thoroughly Inimitable manner, which won the enthusiastic approval of the audience at oncn. The several selection» Riven by members of the company in costume wero also very pleasing, while each number on the varied program blended perfectly with the happy Idea upon which the diversified program was founded. Tho presentation of Mexico, the op-ruing number by the entire company was especially worthy of notice a« wero tho selections of Miss Brooks, the violinist.

ThomsonSUMMER STREET - - MAYNARD HARD ON WOOLEN BUSINESS Nasonvlllc Mlllo Gone Into Inoolven-cy—Fear Other Mlllo Will Follow Tho Nasonvlllo woolen mills In Rhode Island have gone Into voluntary Insolvency and a receiver baa been appointed to wind up the business because of the opinion of the management that it cannot be continued with till.- tariff revised as proposed at Washington. Tho mills had a surplus of over $03,000 at the beginning of the year, but the long toboggan slide looked too hard for that amount of money and 125 people lose their employment in the manufacture of woolen goods. Tho above Item seems to indicate tlint there is considerable truth In tho "tariff" story printed in The Enterprise last week which wan widely read and commented upon. It Is stated on good authority that tho American Woolen Co. Is highly apprehensive of tho pending legislation and loolt forward to marked depression and even nn entire shut down of many of Its mills for a tlmo at least with a general reduction in wages also immiment. If tho Democratic leaders had arranged for a gradual reduction, covering a period of several years, giving American manufacturers nn opportunity to readjust their business to meet changing conditions created by Increased competition that dam-ago done might be discounted to a great oxtent. But to have to stand for having the prop lcnoclted from under all nt once, is rather a hard strain to undergo and at present It looks as 1f nothing' could prevent an extremely dull summer in the woolen business.
