The Spuing Milt.sConvention.—
That feast of song will be a bright spot
in the memories of the musicians who
congregated there last week for years
to come. There was an exceptionally
large class of singers and the chor
uses discoursed were of a high order
and were well rendered. Prof. B erlv
has few peers as a conductor and he
succeeded in doing full justice to the
muMJ selected. His even Dinner and
pleasant, gentlemanly ways hardly ever
fail to win the good will of his pupils
and the respect of the public. He was
faithfullv and ably assisted on the or
gan by Miss Sallie lloffer,of Bellefonte,
who is a lady of raie musical accom
plishments. Prof. I.v.vell M. Meyer
did his full share in making the con
vention a complete success. His ring
ing voice which has an unusual com
pass and is well cultivated was of great
value in the choruses and quaitettes.
while his s dos which are principally of
a comic nature, are inimitable. The
go,id people of Spring Mills had pre
pared'ihemselvt s for the entei tainment
of their musical guests from a distance
and they did play the host, admirably.
Everybody was well taken care of and
all bad a ical nice time. The concerts
on Friday and .Saturday evening were
splendid exhibitions of vocal talent
and the audiences went away well
pleased on both evenings. There was
a pleasing variety of choruses, semi
choruses. quartettes, duets, solos and,
as usual Prof. Lowell J/eyrr brought
down the house with his comic songs.
