Fine Minstrel Show

The Original Georgia Minstrels drew a good sized house Tuesday evening. A better show has never visited Niles, the entire troupe being fine musicians. The afternoon and evening concerts by the brass band were the best ever heard here and gave a good foretaste of what was to follow.

The string orchestra was magnificent, while the singing of the various members of the troupe could not be excelled by any company doing large cities only. For 2-1/2 hours of solid, clean, wholesome fun and frolic, mingled with first-class vocal and instrumental music, let us have Hart and George's Minstrels. If they ever come this way again no hall will hold the crowd who will want to hear them.
