NEXT WEEK'S GRAND CONCERT. IN AID OF LOCAL CHARITIES. There should be a crowded and fashionable audience at the Albert Hall on Thursday afternoon next, when the Baroness Patti- Cederstrom will give a grand concert in aid of the Swansea Hospital and other local eharities. The incomparable cantatrice will be assisted by snch accqfcipliahed artistes as Madame Clara Eiasler, Madame Marianne Eiasler, Mr. Hirwen Jones, Mr. Bichard Green and Mr. W. Ganz. The tickets are being well disposed of, and they may be obtained, and the plan of hall may be seen, at Mr. John Braders', Wind-street. The programme contains many choice morecaux, and an intellectual and artistic treat may confidently be looked forward to. The Baroness Patti will sing Ganz's Nightingale's Trill," the Jewel Song from Faust (Gounod) and Gounod's Serenade Quand tu Chantes," with violin obligato. tThis is not the first time that the Baroness Patti-Cederstrom has come to the help of Swansea charities. Indeed she has been the means of assisting them to the extent of many thousands of pounds and it will certainly not be her fault if, next week, the concert falls behind any of its predecessors in the financial result. The chatelaine of Craig-y-Nos, like many others of the wealthy and leisured classes, frequently shows that she realises the responsibility of wealth and leisure, and that she is ready, not only to spend money, but to undergo a considerable amount of hard work in the fulfil- ment of her duties. Nor can it be reasonably doubted that a consciousness of the kindly consideration which the upper classes have for the lower has gradually spread itself of late years among the community with most salutary effects upon our national life. If the inequalities of fortunes are less bitterly and enviously felt in this country than in some others if the division of classes is less sharp, and the barriers between them more easily penetrated here than elsewhere, it is largely due to the causes which are ever closely associating birth and wealth and position and distinction with activity in good works. The ¡ Baroness Patti-Cederatrom deserves well of the people of this district, and we have no doubt that I they will show their appreciation of her charitable aid, and their recognition of the need and usefulness of the Hospital and the other I charities, by crowding to the Albert Hall on Thursday afternoon. The Baroness will be received and welcomed by the Mayor and Corporation, and those on the line of route—from the Midland Station through Wind-street, Temple-street, Oxford-street, Union-street and De-la-BechC3-street-are invited to decorate their premises. The Concert Committee, with the valuable assistance of the ex-Mayor, Aid. J. Aeron Thomas, have spared no effort to make the arrangements complete, and to ensure the financial success of the concert.
