One of the most unique entertainments
ever given In this dty held tha attention
of a crowded house at the Presbyterian
church last night, when thirty men and
women of tha congregation presented the
Old Folks Concert."
Tha feature of the occasion was that
the players were all men and women on
the shady aids of life. Tha play Itself
was just what the name signified, an
"Old Folks' Concert," without frills or
thrills, Just aa old-fashioned "shindig."
Many In tha audience were provoked to
mirth at the sight af staid bustness men.
soma dad In knickerbockers and Fauntle-
roy collars, while others wore with be
coming dignity the solemn If somewhat
antiquated garb of forty years ago.
Among the women who took part In
the program there were kindly old grand
mothers whose silvery hah was rendered
nowise leas venerable by the strange and
weird headgear that had been the pink
of fashtoa back la old New England be
fore theydvll war.
Tha program was mads up af tittle bits
of poetry, music and declamations, side
lights from tha days agone. Tender old
ballads that In baby days had wooed to
sleep many a man and woman In the
audience were again rehearsed by gentle
voices that had grown no less sweat be
cause of tha passing years. -
