A. at the link, 1 ut Monday evening, was a perfect success, both in numbers and in the variety, excellence and brülianey of the costumes. The oíd folk's social Saturday evening at the M. E. church, was fairly attended, and richly enjoyed by those who were there. Some of the costumes were really elegant. The Old Folks' concert at the Unltarian church last Monday evening was one of the picaban test events of the kind held in the city this season. The attendance was large, and the refreshments sel ved afterward were pronounced superb. The gymnasium fund did not increase ny by the procceds from the Koek Band concert, Monday eveuing, but the people who attended that entertainment went to their homes feeling well pleased with what they saw and heard. The rocks were truly made to sing, and in a wotiderful sweet way, too. There were also one or two other curious iustruuionts with which musicians hervabouts are not familiar. One of the youtijj uicu brought out a boot jack, and playcd upon a couple of nails driven into it, "The Last Rose of Sunimor," in such a marnier as to sosolicit rapturous applause. Some ot the audience expected him to pull oll' one of bis and play a tune tipon the nails in its heels, such a faculty had hc for bringlng uiusic out of everything. Accompanying tliis troupe is a "reader,'1 Miss Ida M. l.nuMi, by name, and she also struck the popular heart with her inimitable style and freah, piquant ways. One of the boys leaned over and pered into our ear : "Say, Mr. Keporter, wlien jou write thls up, please say Chat you saw suck au audienca as waa never before seen in l'niversity hall; they were all dead heads." "N'ot quite all," saiil bis companion, ,"some of them are bald heads." Where are tbe students and members of the gymnasium club? asked the astonished reporter, who saw but few of them present. Au abnormal silence was all that reached his ears.
