The law lecture room was vvell filled Friday evening at 5 o'c ock to hear the reading of Prof. Fulton. The speaker called attentiou to the fact that most readers are giving recitals of single plays or dramatizations of novéis. He wished to recall tlie old way of giving a variety of readings to show versatility of expression. The reading of "Xo Sects in Heaven" was rprefaced with a few lemarks ou the conception of action, in which he showed the difference between personative and descriptive action. The tselection tliough old was mach appreciated and called forth rep?ated applause. The npxt number was a selection in negro dialect entitled '-Únele Israel's Cali," in which patbo-i and humor were very happily bleuded. The selection was new to all and was delightfully entertaining, both in matter and in the rendition. J3y special reqnest of Mr. Trueblood, Mr 'Fulton reeited the ''Spanish Duel," a rythmical selection containing a good deal of S])dinsii dialect. The selection has been heard here many times before, bul it is alwaya afavorité, and Mr. Fulton's smooth, clear, well modulated voice added to it a charm that few readers can give. In response to repeated calis for "more," Mr. Fulton closed with a humorous selection entitled ' Chad and the Goose," which captivated and convulsed tlie audience. Prof. Fulton may always be assured of a warm wel come to Ann Arbor.
