] With regard to the programs of tbe
j Chautauqua Festival offered during
the closing days. Thursday. Friday
and Saturdy, It is o nutter of taste
, and predilection whether Miss Ada
; Ward's touching stories and experiences of our brave boys In ttie trenches; the Orchestra and the sln<*!ns ot
Miss Olive McCormick or tiie great
lecture by Captain llindley should
rank first Some vote for one. some
for the otlier: but probably tin* lesson
taught by Captain Hindiey win continue to bear its fruit or serious
thought wtiijn the memory of the
others shall liave slipped to tlie limbo
of forgotton tilings.
Miss Ward reaches the hearts of
her hearers and moved the tears of
many whose thoughts arc more with
the bone of their bone und the flesh
of their flesh now uud^r Germcui
shell fire, than with things nearer
home. Her lecture was a message for
all of us iu that it brought all of us
nearer to the actualities of tlie veritable hell of war. It shook up and set
thinking many of us who are so sunk
iu love of ease that we shirk from
even harrowing our hearts by reading
of the Qerman desolation which has
swept over Belgium and Northern
France or thinking too deeply of the
tremendous sacrifices which are being
niadp for us by the lad- who were lu
knickers only the day before yesterday
The largest crowd of tlie week filled
tiie tent on Thursday evening to boor
Miss Olive McCormick and the Chun-
tauqua Orchestra, To all music lovers and all who have a love of sweet
concord of sounds iu tlieir souls tbe
program was a delight. The music
was actual, living music played hy
tnusicuns. and not tlu* miserable jingle
jangle of rag-timists and noise makers. One of the members of tlie
Orchestra, a mere hoy, played a number ot violin solos of quite exceptional
merit. He proved what is tlie difference between a violinist and a fiddler.
He does not need tlie spurious advertisement of playing on a fifteen thousand dolb.r instrument. He could get
more music out of one that cost the
proverbial fourteen pence than some
of those we could mention.
Tlie singing of .Miss McCormick was
dnporvpdly one of the ^rbng Items
of tlie Cltnutauqua programs. She
most certainly deserved tlie splendid
reception and tlie many imperative encores demanded hy a great and a cultured audience.. Her voice is a perfect soprano, clear and fresh with the
tone.hloom and glow of youth In it.
Tlie weariness which comes with
years of public singiurr has not yet
touched her voice nor has tiie deadly
routine of singing night after uiglii
taken a particle of verve from her
singing. In response to encore after
encore ahe gave ns little vocal penis,
jewels and diamonds of song and a
ballad or two. notably "Mavotirneen,"
a ballad that Is genuinely Irish in Its
construction and words and sentiment.
Every syllable, everv * uid reached a
home in the minds of her hearers.
She made the music help the words
and the words the music. She is a
Ri-eat musical artist and we of Cranbrook wh'h her back again with as
next year.   We shall not forget.
In this connection it is but rigiit to
say that three or four drunken louts
rrom a certain outside point succeeded
iu completely spoiling a considerable
part of Miss MoCormtekV program for
all   of  those  occupying   a   number   rf

of It from personal Inspection having

a percentage as high as B5 to 70'*.

In this connection it may be said that
tlie Kvans Brothers have secured a
group of claims of extraordinary extent and of good values in what Is
called locally Kelly Dnsin.

There is a shafi down some eighty
feet on a copper lead somewhere along
