A Concert by Blind People.
The blind people of the Hartford
Institute for the Blind will give a
a unique entertainment in the Court
House in Middleburg on Saturday
evening, May 13th, 1890. A huge
company of talented blind people
will render a Mock Trial "The Tri
umph of Invention" followed by a
Musicalc. Tickets arc for sale at
the Commissioners' office.
The mock trial bos always proven
an interesting feature of entertain
ment as all tne principal parts are
taken by blind people. The musical
numbers will add variety tothepro-
gram, and those who attend will not
only enjoy a novel entertainment,
but by their patronage will assist the
Association in its work. When it is
understood that this Association is
undertaking to do for the blind peo
ple of the United States what the
British and Foreign Association is
doing for the young and adult blind
of Great Britain, and that now, ow
ing to the great progress made in
adapting moc'ern inventions to the
use ofthe blind, it is not only possi
ble but comparatively easy to rescue
every blind person of ordinary intel
ligence from a life of idle depend
ence and assist him to reach a higher
plane of life where he may enjoy
that liberty and freedom of action
which accompanies self-reliance and
the ability to iinake one's life useful,
those who live in the sunlight will
find a strong incentive to encourage
this Association by their patronage
and support. 2t.
