title ob thoMafcjert.
On last Friday and Saturday oveninga
Frof. G. M. Castor, assisted by hla Tory
ablo corps of assistants, prosented tho
Rod Cloud public wlthonoof tho most in
teresting and novol homo entertainments
that it hits boon our plcasuro to hoar
slnco residing in Rod Cloud, For qulto
a numbor of days provious, our reporter
had heard it rumored that there would
to n scoool entortalnmont, but did not
presume that it would be any thing more
than an ordinary ovory day ovont; but
immogino our surpriso to find an entor
talnmont that was in every way both ap
preciable and commendablo and a
credit to our schools in ovory way. Tho
training of tbo scholars was faultlose,
and each and every ono rendered tholr
various parts to almost porfoction and
olicitod tho loudost applause,
In this article we find oursolvoa un
able to go into detail in picking
out the boat parte, on account of the
length of tho program and because of
a'gonoral feeling that all did so woll
that it would bo almost impossible to
toll which part was rosily tho best, aaall
scorned to have docidod to do tholr ut
most to gratify the public and their in
structors. Doth ovenlnga the opera houso
was donsely packed, and many wero un
nblo to gain ontranco to the large audi
torium. The people of Rod Cloud should
certainly fool vory proud oyor tho chil
dren of our public Bchools, and wo feel
justly clatod, from tho fact that tho pu
pils, who took part and those who did
not, aro mora than abovo the average in
intellect und uncommonly studious,
which is cortalnly a mark of distinction
on behalf of tholr instructors and tbo
general management of tho public
schools of Red Cloud.
The proceeds of the entortalnmont
woro 184.11, which, after paying tho
necessary expenses, will be devoted to
establishing a public school library.
