Letter From Plnmcr.
Flumkr, Nov. 13. 1873.
Ed. Recohd: TtieCnural Uoion or this
place gave a musical entertainment in tbe
United Presbyterian church l,st evening,
wbicb, considerering the unpleasant weath
er and bad roads, was a decided success.
Tbe time or tue concert was decided
upon anil anuouoced some two weeks since,
when '-the sna ibone, and tbe skies were
blue". But alas! fur the calculations ul
him who pljces bis dependunce upon "Old
Probabilities!" Four days previous to toe
appointed evenitic, the rain ami snow he
gnu to pell down alternately and our good
roads to disappear. Thus who were inter
esled in tbe success of tbe concert, predicted
a certain failure. But tbe "bins were post
ed," tbe tickets war circulated, and there
was no sucb word as tail. So despite tbe
rain, mud, and dark ess, seven o'clock last
evening found the class assembled, but el
most despairing of an audience. However
lbs citiZ-ms ol tbe placo came out in good
numbers, thus greatly eucauragiug tbe cl s
aad showing a general appreciation of thai,
endeavors to provide a pleasant eveniug
entertainment, and Iroin Petroleum Centre
tbey came, tbaaks to tbe Rkcokd.
Tbe programme consisted uf Choruses,
Anthems, Quartettes, Duetts, Solos, etc.;
Mrs. M. Brandon, olrrut(lio, was organist
and fully sustained tbe bappy reputation
she bas already gained in musical circles.
The mutio by tbe 0 ass was well rendered
showing oareiul drilling and marked tin
provetneut. The pieces uieetlug most
general favor were tbe Anthem "Awake!
put on thy strength," and tbe Chant "Ab.de
Miss Bonner sang "I'd like to change my
name" eliciting hearty applause.
Mrs. William McCray, Mrs. Brandon,
Prof. Boynton and Mr. Wadded sang "The
dearest spot ou Earth"- a sweet son oi
home was Ibis, well sang. A charming lit
lie song "Over There," was sung by Misses
Tiliie and Annie Sbreve, Rev. Uobertsou
and Mr Robert Shieve. Mr. Jobu Wadded
sang "A trip to Niagara Falls," which was
received with applause and geueral laugh
Mr. C. Boyes taug "Rocked in the cradle
of tbe Deep," in excellent style.
Prof. Boyuton, assisted by Mrs. McCray-
Miss Bonner, and Mr. Boyce sang tbe comi
cal song "Tue tiiugin' Skewl."
By n quest tbe Shreve brothers and Bisters
oC Miller Farm, assisted by others, sang
'Nearer Home," which met with so much
favor at a prevluus coucert.
Although tbe weather was so very aula-
vorable and the roads almost impassable.
the class have no excuse tor complaint
either with regard to tbe members of the
audience,or tbe amuiint realized financially..
It is the intention, however, to repeat tbe
Concert as soon as tbe roads become good,
when we bespeak lor tue class a good audi
ence wbicb tbe it eflorts and success richly
Tbe programme of tbe concert In con'.eru
plation,wbile rouaisiiug substantially of the
same performances, will have so tnaoy new
and good ones added to it, that it will in
reality he a net programme. It is also
proposed to bring Ibe little folks forward
The Cuorsl Union is striving bard to ,.t

efforts of tbe class and its aole coniluc or

friends and lovert ol muslo win encourage
