AN EXCELLENT TREAT.
Professor O. H. - Bakeless has
completed arrangements for the
coming of the Ben Greet Company
of English players to the Normal
School during the first week in
April. This will be a literary treat
which Bloomsburg is fortunate in
As we have stated before, this
company is the best known produc
er of Shakespereati plays in this
country and England. That they
have played under the auspices of
nearly every prominent college and
university in the United States is
evidence of their ability.
They interpret the dramas of the
Bard of Avon from the original
versions, presenting them in the
style of the early English theatre,
without change of scenery, thus
giving a literary value to their

It is probable that a matinee and
an evening performance will be
given. Three hundred seats have
beeu reserved at oue dollar, and all
but eighty of these have been al
ready engaged. The rest of the
house will be sold at fifty cents a
seat. The company deserves a
crowded house, and such an early
demand for tickets indicates that it
will play to capacity.
The Poultry Show of the Blooms
burg Poultry, Pigeou, and Pet
Stock Association, held in the Mid
way last week, was a success in
every way. The exhibit was large
and well arranged, and the birds
made up the finest collection ever
brought together in the county.
The public generally enjoyed it,
and the members of the association
were more than satisfied.
The out of-town exhibitors were
greatly pleased with the care taken
of their stock here and with the
promptness of their return. Many
letters expressing gratification have
Financially the show was a suc
cess; not that there will be much of
a surplus, but that there will be no
deficit, which is highly satisfactory
in that it was the first attempt of
this kind in town.

The members of the Christian
Endeavor of St. Matthew's Luth
eran Church have secured the ser
vices of Hon. II. M. Hinckley of
Danville, for a lecture in the church
on Friday evening. The subject of
his discourse is "Nehemiah."
Judge Hinckley has a high repu
tation as a public speaker, both as
a lawyer and a layman, and the
church should be filled to bear him.
No admission will be charged,
out a silver collection will be taken.
