SCHOOL, BANOIBâA laTge and fashionable aedienoe at the Penrhyo Hall, on Tuis- day even in it, expressed itself highlv fleased with the programme Mr and Mrs Hurren Harding provided for signs'lial-n? the advent of the Christmas holidays. Mmlnt House School has made suoh strides within the last "three years, and tbe pupils1 have become so numerous, thai, to give an enter- tainment in tbe sehAnlroom is new out of the question. Hence it was found neoesgary to secure; tbe Penrbvn Hall, wher" there is amnte aoeom- modation for performers and aud ienci". Theourtain rose upon a neatly arraneed group of ohildreo, who sing with mueh sweetness the oborus" When the morning," <to. This was followed by < oreditably performed pianoforte duet, by the Mispes Maggie Huehes and Graham. The next item on the pro- gramme was an exceedingly amusing one. The whole of the Boys* Class appeared In the role of shoemak»rs. and gave th» action song. The ëo;e;,re:t' t'Kr 1I::iD:a'Â¥h' b;: aoquitted themselves admirably, and oalled forth muoh lauehter. The solo, A Winter Lillabv," was then rung by Miss Vary Edward*, who was loudly applauded. â " 0 lovely peace" was epjoysd. The sight-singiac test thr eveh the senior olasaas were nit bv Mr Harding was demonstrated the thoroughness of the musiesl education imnarteil. Litttle Miss Harding recited SA Keeping His Word with oorrectoess and pathos, and her dear enun- ciation was remarkable In one who bas only seen eight summers.

Lewis cava a violin trio," See the oonquering hero nomas," which secured for them the plaudits of fb- audience. Next which om" a solp Legend of tfw Lily,"hy Kiss M. Hughes. We csnnot speak In terms too high of tbe violin and pianoforte dnet by the Misses Hewitt. It was superb, and had time allowed its repetition would have been warmly welooaied. There were two other items in the first part of the programme: An action sang by the Kindergarten olasa, and a pianoforte dust hv Misses M. Hewitt and Gladys Hughes. After an interval, "The tale of Aladdin and the Wonderful Lamp" was unfolded by Miss Olwen Rowlands, of whose capabilities we have had the pleasure on seveeal occasions of speaking In laudatory terms. The tableaux were nsrvelbusly well Arranged, and the perfnrmanoe redounds to the credit of all the members of tbe sebool. Tbe scenes were: -1, Telling the Tale; 2 The Descent to the Cave: 3. In the Cave 4 The Prinoaas going to the HiLtik 5,New Lampe for Old 6, The Enohsnted Cagile 7, The Coronation Procession, lntrodocing the hietorioel periods of British history. The closing seene was arranged and carried out with precision and taste, and general astonishment WM aroused at the correct- neea nf the en8tomllll, and tha way in which each performer did hia and her part.
