Her lower register particularly was very rich and pleasing., Mr. Glanville Davies again proved himself to be a true artiste. His enun- ciation and vocalisation were especially good.. Miss Blodwen Lloyd delighted the audience with her singing, and was encored. Madame Jeanes- Thomas, in her pianoforte solo, displayed much musical feeling and correct expression, together with sympathy and a grasp of the pieces ren- dered. The duet contributed by Miss Lloyd and Mr. Davies evinced an excellent blend of voice and understanding. Madame Bevan, in Tosti's "Good-Bye," well deserved her encore, for which she gave "The End of a Perfect Day." The different items rendered by the choir were with- out exception much enjoyed, and Mr. J. Simon Davies, the conductor, is to be commended on an excellent performance.

We cavalry men ar? yearning for the long, bright and sunny days to come, when we hope to meet the famous (lays to,. So far, when we have met them, they have,. turned tail and gallopped away as fast as their horses could carry them.
