BROWNIE ORCHESTRA. enlight- Youthful Musicians Give a Deliirhtful Keception and Concert. The parlors of the Congregational Church were well filled Thursday evening when Prof. Hastings' Brownie Orchestra gave a reception and concert for the benefit of its friends. It was an exceedingly enjoyable affair and proved plainly that the little musicians are industrious in their work and possess ambition very seldom noticed in young people in that early stage of life. The girls acted- gracefully as the reception committee, while the boys did the honors as ushers. The Brownie Orchestra's selections were well executed and evidenced a thorough understanding of tho music before them, The little musicians are most assuredly progressing lively on their road to success, for which their leader deserves a great deal of credit. A piano duett by Stanley Bliss and Hettie Irish was neatly executed. Glad ys Lindsay played a piano solo very prettily. Pearl Swanton showed eonsid erable versitality by rendering a difll cult solo on the piano. A piano duett by Pearl Swanton and Luclle Smith, very cleverly rendered, proved one ot the best numbers on the program. Winnie Lewis went satisfactorily through technical difficulties of a somewhat elaborate piano seiecuion. uiue ruuu and Birdie Colven received much applause for the clear execution of a cornet duett. Ollie Fagan astonished her listeners by a command of fingering and an exhibition of fluency that one would hardly expect in such a youthful musician. The Brownie Mandolin and Guitar Club received also its share of the liberal applause and in justice, too, for its selections was rendered with a precision most delightful to observe. It is certain that the Brownie Orchestra scored a great success and everyone left well pleased at the good work accomplished. I I I
