Reading and Concert.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Only a moderate sized audience was in Sanders theatre last evening to hear the readings of Professor J. W. Churchill of Andover, together with the concert by the Glee and Banjo clubs. Professor Churchill's readings were excellent and called unbounded enthusiasm from the audience. His first selection, "Dr. Marigold's Last Prescription," was given very appreciatively, but did not take so well as his others. "A Strange Duel," was strong and graphic, but it was "No. 5 Collect Street" that found the most favor. His interpretation of that was admirable, and the rendering of the encore, one of "Sam Lawton's" characteristic stories, was inimitable.

The Glee club was at its best, but for some reason its reception was by no means enthusiastic. "Cannibalee," by Mr. Fullerton and the club, "Drink to me only with thine eyes," and "Versatile baby," were the favorites. The Banjo club was encored twice. The selections were played with remarkable grace and purity of expression, and the technique could hardly have been better. The favorite, as usual, was "Braham's Medley."
