'Good-Night Dear - Orchestra
When the soul stirring strains of
David Reynolds' violin floated across
the room, there was an Irresistible
Inclination to trip the light fantastic
and the room was cleared for the pur
pose. Tho old time cotillions were
rendered by Mr. Reynolds as only he
knows bow they were played half a
-century ago, and many of the older
people present, who bad not danced for
years, simply could not resist the
temptation to renew the memories of
.youth and danced the evening out.
All in all it was a gathering that will
be remembered by those participating
for many years to .come, and Its success
relit eta credit on the Worshipful
Mauler and Secretary, Harry L.
MoEntlro and William Copping, who
arranged all of the details of the affair.

One of the most prouatsing of this
season's new dramatic offering? is
Doherty Collins & Co's prnlu;tion of
Norman Lee Swartout'e delinbiful
farce-oomedy, "The Arrival of Kitty."
The piece is said to be one of the
brightest and most potent laugh pro
ducer created since the days of the
Eoyt farces, and, In (act, It Is in some
ways Bimllar to those old masterpii ces
of wit and humor though it is et tlrely
new and original In theme and treat
ment, Mr. Swartout alreacy holds an
tin enviable place among contemporary
writers of farce comedy In this country
through his creation of "Sundy" and
, aeveral kindred piece but it is said that
he has eclipsed all his previous efforts
in "The Arrival of Kitty". . Doherty
Colllns& Co, who are successful pro
ducers of this line of dramatics, promise
to give their new comedy a thoroughly
adequate presentation and to provide a
company of unusual excellence. One of
-the particular attractive features of the
performance will be a number uf bright
and clever specialties-wbkU i:i be

William n. Berry, candidate of the
Keystone party for governor of Pennsyl
vania, was well received by the local
people last Friday night and spoke to
an audience tbat Oiled the Centennial
halt In every part. A largo number of
prominent citizens were on the platform
as vice-presidents. Since his former
visits to Reynoldsvllle Berry has Im
proved as a . campaign speaker and
succeeded in holding the olose attention
of his audience. Most of his charges
were dlreoted against the men identi
fied with the old capital graft charges
rather than against the b 'ads of the
present opposition tickets.
The Berry supporter In town, and
they are not a few, are now planning
to make an aotlve campaign for their
candidate and have organized a club for
that purpose.

With all the talk of the institute at
tractions, the local people are In dan
ger of forgetting that the usual lecture
course will be given In tho Assembly
ball this year, and that the talent will
be equal to that of any past year. The
school children have been making an
active canvas of the town during the
last few weeks and the sale of tickets
has been very fair. Tbe first attraction
will be given Friday night of this week,
October 28th, and Is of exceptional
merit. A concert has alwavs filled
Assembly ball and no doubt? will on
this occasion. The following is a good
description of The Vassar Girls, who
are booked to appear: This company
Is tbe outgrowth of an Ideal. About
ten years ago a gentleman of some
means and liberal Inclination conceived
the idea uf educating a double quartette
of girls for high class concert work.
With ample means and not Impatient
of time, he selected from the wide
circle of his acquaintance eight girls of
superior character and musical ability
and furnished them means to complete
their literary and musical education,
guiding the latter in tbe direction of
their contemplated work.
The selection of personnel of a com
pany five years iu advance of their first
engagement, is something unique In the
history of company organization and
gives Vassar Girls a distinction enjoyed
by no other. After these years of
schooling and special preparation, tbe
eight original girls appeared In concert
In an eastern city and their success was
Instantaneous and eminently justified
the time, expense and work requlrid to
prefect their musical education, make
solo artists of each Individual and make
them a unit in their ensemble work.
For five years this company of
educated, cultured and refined young
women has honored Its name, tbe
Eight Vassar Girls, in a high claBS
musical event In the best advanced
vaudeville In the leading cites' of tbe
United States, and has demonstrated
as have many of tbe great artists of
the world, that a good, clean musical
event of superior quality, iree from any
suspicion of .coarseness or cheapness wlnl'
appreciation and apbtause on Its merits
everywhere. So great has bean their
success that practically all their time
for five year's has been consumed In re
turn date work In twenty or thirty cities
through which tbey made their tour,
tuch as New York, Philadelphia, Buf
falo, Pittsburg, Cleveland, Cincinnati,
Cbloago, Minneapolis, St. Louts,
Kansas City, Omaha, Denver and San
Francisco, where ever-ioorcaslng aud
iences have greeted them.
