The Oriental I.n t rriHin m lit .
The Oriental entertain men t gn va n at
the Pre&by terian chuich last evening
by Phr. res Behannesey was the best
entertainment of that naluie which
has ever been presented in Platts
mouth. Mr. Behannesey is a native i f
Damascus, hence is thoroughly cou
vei siant with the manners and customs
of the people of that country, their
ro'igion. language, etc., and his lec
ture was highly instructive and very
amusinfr. Thero wero about forty
persons dressed in the u n ique cost u mes
of the Oiient, some of the costumes
being of rich material and very beau
tiful. Mr. Behannesey described the
different classes, their peculiar cus
toms, introducing- persons dressed in
the native costumes, including the
governor and his harem, Greek and
Arab priests, the treacherous Kurd,
tho soldier, farmer and shepherd,
showing- some of the weapons used in
warfare. Takiug it all in all, it was
most enjoyable. Tho entertain ment
was concluded by a rendition of the
Mohammedan prater by Mr. Behan-ne.-ey,
and the salute by the wayside,
which was intensely interesting. We
deem tho entertainment an education
of itself and one could learn moie io

that at ono critical time this medicine
was tho indirect savior of our army,
for if tho packers had been unable to
work there would have been no way
of getting supplies tot he front. Tin): e
