Penarth Philharmonic Society. At Andrews' Large Hall, on Sunday night last, a sacred musical service was held, under the auspices of the above-named society, for the benefit of the relict and family of the late Mr Alfred Smith, who was recantly burnt to death at the Penarth Steam Laundry. The hall was crowded. The Rev W. Wallace presided, and was supported by the Presi- dent of the Society (Mr Joseph Lace), who at the- outset expressed a wish that no unseemly enthusiasm would manifest itself among the audience. The choir, numbering nearly 100, under the baton of Mr Alfred S. Jones, organist and choirmaster of the Trinity Wesleyan Chapel, gave a very creditable performance, the accompanist being Mr Albert E* Jones, organist. etc., of the Arcot-street Wesleyan Chapel, and Mr Bert Hallett- Interspersed were solos by Miss Emily Francis, of the renowned Royal Welsh Ladies' Choir, and Mr J. F. Proud, conductor of the Cardiff Blue Ribbon Choir. The former sang in her sweetly inimitable manner, 61 With Verdure Clad," and the latter Gounod's For Ever with the Lord and a Rejoice Judah." He alson sang a duet with MrGarston entitled. "N ow we are Ambassadors. It id almost needless to add that Mi- Proud's services were a sine gua non to the evening's musical delecta- tion. En passant, it must be mentioned that the choir sustained its reputation, and Mr A. S. Jones is to be felicitated thereon. Mr Lace, in his presidential address, in referring to the sad disaster whereby Mr Smith lost his life, made a special appeal for Mrs Smith and her large family. God's providence .vas, indeed, inscrutable, but they had His assurance that the widow and orphans were His ppecial care- The collection realised .£10. Un stinted praise is due to the accompanists and conductor, choir, and solo- artistes for their gratuitous services.
