about 2 o'clock. It caught somehow
from a defective tluo and burned a

sent out from Box 35, and the fire

We were blessed yesterday with a
bright, beautiful and balmy day,the
first really pretty day we have had
this season, and as a consequence
there were crowds of worshippers at
all of the churches. The Gatholic,
Episcopal and Lutheran churches
were all beautifully decorated with
evergreens and (lowers and the ser
vices were beautiful and impressive.
In the afternoon there were church
services for the children iu nearly
all of the churches of these denomi
nations and so great was the attend
ance that in some instances many
persons were compelled to stand.
We would be glad to publish full
reports of the services in all of the

No matter how perfect an organi
zation may be, orjiow well it may
perform, a purely instrumental
concert (as was the case with
Thomas' Concert some years agoj)
These concerts will be vocal and
instrumental, and are not only in

the masses as well. Gilmore has
been before the public so long, that
he knos exactly what is needed
to please all.-
There is no doubt that Wilming
ton, which has so many lovers of
music, will look forward to this
great event with much pleasure, for
to hear such a concert is a privilege
which may never again be extended
to our citizens.
We have no doubt that the house
will be packed on this great occas-
wav to tne Tabernacle. We
have heard the number estimated as
high as 0,000, which; of course in
