"Jimmie" Low of Evanston, a nephew of Mrs. Bater, appeared among us recently and made almost unbelievable revelations regarding the schoolboy pranks of some of our most staid and dignified townsmen. We are constrained to believe that boys are pretty much of a nuisance."
"The Haymakers", which it may be said "en Passant" is quite the most taking secular cantata within the ken of your correspondent, was very acceptably presented on the evening of the 20th. Mr. Starkweather, to whose faithful drilling the success of the entertainment is due, acted both as musical director and stage manager and seemed to be almost omnipresent with a song here, a word there and a general supervision of the whole. Mrs. Starkweather's sweet voice added its full quota to the evening's enjoyment. Dr. Brown from Belvidere characterized the farmer most skillfully and his well rendered solos were a delight to listen to. Mr. Dalziel's clear tenor made "sweet melodies" and Alfred Bain's rich baritone is too well known and liked to need praise. Mr. Barstow made up as a typical dude and laboring under the disadvantage of indisposition, slept and snorted then fought wasps and sheltered under a tattered umbrella, singing meantime his terrors and pleadings in such a realistic manner as to elicit shouts of merriment from the audience. The management is indebted to him for the use of the draw curtain as well as histrionic and musical assistance. To those who came from a distance and so cheerfully lent such efficient aid, the entire community is under obligation. We express the sentiments of Millburn musicians when we say, that if these, our sister towns every get "stuck" and want our help they have only to ask to receive of our best.
