Thoro is probably not that porson liv
ing who does not appreciate, to somo ox
tont, tho aweot strains ot music. Some,
while totally ignornnt of tho distinction
betwoen music of a higher and lowor
grade, Iovo music rogardloss of how it is
produced. Tho illltorato and tho reftnod
of all races, tribes and kindrod lovo tho
melodious strains of n woll manipulated
instrument. It mnken tho oheerlMS
choerful, and tho sad glad; it enthuses
tho glowing mind with a roal fooling of
hnppinr-RS, which probably nothing but
music could do; it furnishos tho rcetlosB
feet of many unsocial gathering with suf
ficient exorcises, and makos tho irropres-
siblo negro give vent to bis lovo ot music
with a familiar jig danco.
Tho good pooplo of Rod Cloud always
manifest their appreciation ot a musical
ovont by their proaonco nnd cooporntion.
Iho Sons of Votoraus band havo for
many montlm past been growing rapidly
in public favor, and when thoy declared
thoir intention somo weeks hIiico to givo

dicted an interesting and successful on

that tho doings nt tho opera houso Tues

In othor words, tho hoilse was
chock full. Altogether, tho progrummo
was oxcollont, and almost faultlessly ren

ager nnd prompter, besides doing his
share in tho musical program. From
tho timo tho evont was suggested, ho
took an active part for which ho deserves

Theovorturo "Nuggot Noll," beginning
tho exorcises, was u difficult ono indcod.
It was rendored by tho entiro band and
elicited vociferous appluuso.
In tho quintet entitled "Hunter's
March" by Millor, Hendrick, West, Dick
orson nnd Putmor, tho nudionco con
ceived a marked improvomont, and tho
selection was well rocoivod.
Oscar Patraor covorod himtolt all over
with glory in his tuba solo, ontitlod
"Rocked in tho Cradlo of tho Deep," and
was loudly oncorod.
Tho "Dream of Glory" with piano and
cornet by Honry Clarko and Miss Lillio
Smith was strictly first-class. Both woro
perfectly composed nnd proved thorn
selves porfoctly familiar with the eoloo
tion and to possess much musical talent.
Thad McNitt nnd Prof. Geo. Hondrick
with thoir violins, accompanied by Miss
Grace Fort at the piano rendered an ox

of a modley played by tho Misses Mary

The "Four VngB" was indood a pecu

Of course, they wore oncorod, and tho
way they responded was as graceful as a

to a largo crack in a cako of limburger

Miller's tune no ho walked on the stage.
Of course, it was all burlesque, and, as
such, served satisfactorily.
Special praise was lauded tho ladies'
quartet consisting of Mrs. Martin, Mrs.
West, Miss West and Miss Blanche Sel

moniously in "O Lovoly Stur." Thoy
wero loudly encored and rocoivod many
complimentary remarks. Tho selection,

One ot the most beautiful selections
was tho finale which concluded tho ex

A. II. GnAv'fl Finn. Last Saturday
night about 11:30, during tho severo
snow storm, firo was discovorod in tho
houso occupiod by Diok Gray. The
alarm was immediately sounded and,
notwithstanding tho violence ot tho
storm, was responded to by a largo body
of firemen and willing neighbors. Every
thing was dono to save tho building, and
in thoir stronuouB efforts, Diok Gray
und Beach Robinson came near losing
thoir lives. They woro Inside tho burn
ing building, in total darkness, and tho
door becamo locked. Tho smoko ovor
camo thorn, and in tho doneity of smoke
and'darkness they wore unable for somo
timo to locate tho lock. This thoy finally
succeeded in doing however, and wero
prostrated for somo timo after roaohing
oport'nir. Tho houso was nicely fur
nished, und ovory effort was put forth to
save, at least, a small portion ot tho
property. Nothing but afew bedclothes
woro saved, and, while tho building wus
not entirely dostroyod, tho contents
woro entirely consumed, Ouly about 40
per cent ot tho contents were insured,
and as a conscquonco, the loss falls heav
ily on Mr. Gray. Tho main loss which
Dick doplores, is tho loss ot his books
containing valuablo records for yeuie
back. At the timoof tho first alarm,
Mr. Gray and wifo woro absent and just
on tho point ot returning home.
