Company, on the thirteenth of November. In this company were Miss Shipp,
soprano and readerg Miss Ailene Pettit, violinistg Mrs. Etta Goode Heacock,

On November the twenty-fourth, Captain Richmond Pearson Hobson addressed
us on "The Destiny of Our Nationf' This was the second number of the lecture

Operatic Company. In the company were Mrs. Telka Farm McKinnie, sopranog
Miss Rose Heidenreich, contraltog Mr. Christian Mathesen, tenorg Mr. Burt P.

"Martha," in costume.
The fourth number was given on February the twenty-fourth, by the Castle
Square Entertainers. In this company were Mr. LeRoy Hulbert, first tenor, who
also played mandolin, banjo, concert horn, cornet, octavin and piano, Mr. Henri
A. Keats, second tenor, who played violoncello, concert horn and is a pianist of
marked ability, Mr. Pratt, baritone, who played violin, piano and cornet, and is
an excellent dialect monologistg Mr. A. A. Kurtz, bass, who played the violin.
This was one of the best attended numbers of the course.
The fifth number was given by Dana Walden, the magician. He is certainly
a master in the mysterious arts, and was thoroughly enjoyed by all. He had
with him a ventriloquist who caused very much amusement.
As a whole, the course this year was attended better than last and was a
success financially. g
