Donlin, of the good old days of baseball: "And that reminds me," Mike interrupted himself, "that Johnny Evers said something the otherrday when he declared that baseball had loBt some of its grip, oh'the public because "the players no longer paraded through city streets and appeared in uniform only on the field. I agree with Johnny.- "It required considerable agility, to dodge the brickbats, then, but we always managed to escape with our lives.

"Visiting teams always put on their uniforms at-their hotel and usually rode out to the ball orchard in 'busses. Brush made us put on a lot ot dog,*but he-thereby*'subjected us to some awful risks.

I could feel a brick coming ,wheri I couldn't see it.'--'/"They, hated us in Chicago. The newspapers pointed out that we were as yellow as our horse blankets. The Cubs were our deadly rivals, and whep we got into our carriages after beat-,j ing them on their own grounds we always looked for trouble.

The entertainment was full of interest from.start to finish and lovers ot music enjoyed it Immensely. The story was taken from the Book of Ruth in the Bible, and was acted out so real, if one had not known the story It was not hard to follow it. The leading characters did extremely woll, most of them singing difficult songs. Miss Nora Anderson as "Ruth" has a beautiful and powerful soprano voice and suited her part. As a loving daughter her work was splendid. Miss Leona Farrell as "Naomi" the mother, could not have been hotter. She looked, acted and sang her part well and is a promising young singer. Orpah, the sister-in-law of 'Ruth, was very pretty In tier character and captivated the audience with her sweet voice and - mannor. This part was taken by Eva Sorensen. Miss Maiden sang extremely well in her part as "Tarnar." , Lucille Allon was very sweet in her part bb the child of Naomi. Mr. Myron Holmes sustained the part of "Elimoleck," a good man in Isreal. The two sons of Kllmileck were Lea McBride and Wilford Mel-drum, who were both very good, and tho love scene by the sons and the Moabitish women were great. Mr. Jensen as the "Prophet" of Israol and Madge Stevenson as the "Pro. photess" were also good. The singing ob the loading characters is certainly worthy ot Bpecial mention, and no doubt has taken some hard work and practice. One of the prettiest scenes and best no doubt was the trio sung by Ruth, Naomi and OVpah, when the mother tried to pursunde her daughters-in-law to return to their home and they sang. "Entreat me not to leave you." A splendid'chorus of girls and boys were the backbone of \ the cantata, carrying their choruses! well, and the costumos added greatly to the reality of the affair. Prof. Mitchell, of tho Knight Academy, who has charge of the entertainment, Is to be congratulated bn the splendid wofk of his students, and no doubt deserves a great amount of the credit for his untiring work. Magrath people enjoyed it immensely- and Invite them to come again. . Surprise Party. Mrs, N;i C.
