HESWALL ENTERTAINMENT —A capital entertain- ment, on behaif of Charles Thompson's (Birken- head) Poor Childrens' Mission, was given at the Heswall Hotel Victoria on Thursday evening. It opened with a piano solo by Miss Gunning, and songs were afte; wards given by Miss Flora Ellis, Mr. A. Ashley, and Mr. Ben Jones. Miss Hol- lowood and Mr. Ashley also gave a capital vocal duet, and Mess.s. and Miss Jackson contributed two of their charming instrumental trios. Miss Scarratt recited the "Old Folks," and the pretty toy dust from the "GeIsha" was rendered by Miss Whitely and Mr. Elston. Songs were also very cleverly given by children from the Mission. The chief attraction, however, was the sketch, "A Quiet Cup of Tea," which was presented in a most realistic fashion, and in which the various characters were most admirably sustained by "local talent." In the opinion of the majority of the audience it surpassed in point of excellence anything of the kind hitherto presented here, and it is not surprising in view of its success, to leant that a local dramatic society is being formed. At the close the Chairman in proposing a vote of thanks to Miss Hollowood for her kindness in arranging the entertainment. on behalf of the Mission, referred to the vast amount of good achieved by the latter The characters in the sketch were as follows:—Captain Bouncer, Mr. Haddocks; Dr. Dickenson, Mr. H. Jones; Mrs. Featherby (a young widow), Miss Hollowood; Miss Mrs. Majar Mountchestnut. Miss Pennington; Clara (a housemaid). Miss Dumball; John (page boy), Master H. Johnson.
