have been holding a most successful
fulr in Hurke's hall for the past week,
have decided to have a grand wind-up.
and for that purpose the hall has been
secured for tomonow night. ln
doubtedly they would have included

ly. First appeared Prof. John Firth
and hlr. H-year-old son, Hugh, In a
piano duet. Tho youngster ishowed
cleverness and proficiency, whllo his
father's talents are well known. F.d
gar Stuck sang a. coon song and then
a sentimental ballad, and though he
forgot part of his words and was
laughed at for it, ho kept his head
and gave a humorous rejoinder to his
audience which brought forth yet more
laughter. Hlodwln Davis, the tswect
voiced little singer, captivated all by
two well-rendered ballad.-". Then Mr.
Sidney Hughes, of Scrnnton, unexpect
edly made his appearance, and sang
"Th Holy City" and "The Palms,"
In an exquisitely clear and high tenor
voice. Then the floor was cleared for
action and dancing was kept up until

but was not seriously 111 until about an
hour before her death. Her maiden

of a few years In Herrlek Centre, until
nl'oiit tlfteen years ago, when her hus

here until his deuth, a year ago last
Three years ago last January Mr.
