There are at least two departments uf tin: 113th of which tbe battalion is exceptionally brass band and the pipes. It was shown without a doubt that the Kilties have the most accomplished set of musicians that, have ever been associated with Leth- bridge, and this is no idle boast. "The Maple Leaf Forever" was the first se- lection cf tlis brr.r.n band, followed by "The by Sousa, These brought forth a good round uf ap- plause, but the big hit was accom- plished when the hand played "The Village Band." a comic piece. It brought down the house. The band is supposed to be playing at a country fair and commences by tuning their instruments. Then comes a series of discords which runs through the num- ber, and which are sometimes found in a village band. The number is purely comedy but it requires skilful manip- ulation. It was perfectly rendered, and Lieut. Richards, leader, is to be congratulated upun the success that is attending his efforts to equip a first rate band. The pipers are always favorites and their appearance on the stage was the signal for much animation among the audience. The Highland Reel by Pipe Major Hosle. Sergt. AVhyte, Pipers Bu- chanan, Me Arthur and McBeth was rendered in approved fashion iu this act. The musical selections and recita- tions were splendid. In Pte. Vaugban the Kilties have au artist. His song, "By the Yukon and the "Be- douin Love with the monologue "Dismal made him a favor- ite with tbe audience. Lieut. Asquith too achieved a triumph in his recita- tion, as did Lance-Corpl. Jackson in "Two Little Drummer Boys" recita- tion, and his "We're All Under the Same Old Flap" song. Piper Buchanan is as good with tho violin as he Is with the pipes, and his Scottish airs brought him an ava- lanche of: approval when he left the stage. Splendid Rifle Drill One of the most interesting parts of the program was seen when the ma- chine gun section, a body of picked men, gave a rifle drill under Lieut. Frame. The audience after witness- ing their feats were better off. In knowledge as to the intricacies df the art of soldiering. The drill was put through without a hitch, Lieut. Frame explaining all points of the drill as they came up. The physical exercises were not be-" hind the rifle drill in interest. This class was under the command Lieut. Asquith. They are a fins body of men, all with splejidid physiques. They went through the many exer- cises perfectly and wound up with the men forming the figures "113." This act was loudly cheered too. The bugle calls of the British army from "Reveille" to "Lights Out" was another feature of the program which proved of more than ordinary interest to the audience. A little humor was inserted into this number of the pro- gram when one of the .buglers was In- clined to work overtime with his in- strument. The various calls were ex- plained by Lieut. Richards.
