The followiug rémarks froin the GraLs Lake News are applicable to Aon Arbbr fnlly as ranch as they are to that place, as that kind of business is carried to an exoess in every entertainment given in this oity: "The indisoriminate encoring at the concert Tuesday evening was certainly in very bad taste. To encoré discreetly and vvith proper jndgrnent is both complimentary to the performer and indioative of a cnltured appreciation on the part of the andifince. bnt Wholesale encoring advertises a want of artistio taste, and is so offensive to the professional artist that he will refnse snch recalls altogether. fiere in Grass Lake, if our people will take the tionble to notioe, hand-clapping for a reoall, as a usual thing, originates with tbougbtless boys. They briDg their palms together noisily and persisteatly, whether appropriate or iuappropriate, and people who in other regards usually exercise discrimination, allow themselves to join in the folly of the juveniles. "The numbers comprising the program Tuesday eveniug were very well done, but some were better giveu than otbers, and to have encored a few of the very best would have been appropriate. But to put all on the same plañe made the compliment valueless. It is to be hoped tbat tbose of our oitizens who kuow where to really "draw the line" will uot allow an element which lacks snch peroeption to wheedle them into hand-clapping for indiscriminate recalls. Sach a practice, too, often draws the program out to a fciresome length, and besides is really misusing the oucnpants of the stage by forcing more work from them than' tbey contracted to give. "
