The house should have ' been packed to the doors. The company is probably^the. finest .of Jts^kind that haa ever visited our city, and, though the audience was small, there was no lack of appreciation of the genuine merit of the members of the company. Nebr- ly every number was vigorously en cored, and on one occasion the compa ny was compelled to sing three times before the next number could be given. The program was made up of the weird, factuating Negro melodies, sung so much in the South, The voices of the singers blend as one, and through out the entire program, not one'fats note was sounded. Each voice has been cultivated to a high degree, making the rich, melodiuus tones, characteristic with tne race.charming and de lightful. ' ' ' • The solo work was all good, each receiving an encore. During the inter mission Mr. London, the manager, made a brief address, giving a short sketch of his travels around tne world. There bus probably never been in Sterling a man who hae traveled as extensively as he. He is an easy talk er,tuses the finest of language, and hia iubjectlmatteTislnteresting. - - : The company closed its season with Tuesday night's concert. It is to .be hoped that it will visit Sterling at some future time and that it will be ,given the liberal reception it merits.
