"Sir" Edward Pare, a comedian of skill and ability, indefatigable and con- siderably versatile man, unstinted ap- plause, his several items? were enjoyed to the full, the whole audience laughing u nres! I jned!y at bis excellent humour. The Hon." Harry Bowden is a humor- ist of a very high order, so pleasingly refined, and his artistic efforts were re- ceived with unfeigned appreciation.— Mr Harry Kirk, a comedian with a never ending flow of wit and humour, was in great form, and the audience were kept, in continual merriment the whole of the time he occupied the stage.—Mr Harry Slatter made good use of his cultured voice, and his numbers were especially enjoyable, all artistically rendered and w i  b care wiLlr iiiterpi,eL,t-tion.-Air Chas. Elstree was in his usual good form, and gave one or two exceedingly clever skits. richly funny and artistic. He has a remarkably wonderful, voice which he knows well how to use to advantage.— Mr Bobby Fraser, besides being an ac- companist of exceptional excellence, is an entertainer of ability, and is un- doubtedly a great acquisition to the show. Special mention should be made of the concerted items, particularly "The Chicken Rag" and "The Merry Month of May." The former included a burles- que cock fight, and was highly amusing, and the latter proved a most tuneful and characteristic number, the maypole dance being very effective. The sketch on this occasion, Musical Corsets," was excruciatingly funny, it was one of the most comical we have seen for a long time, and the audience greeted it with volleys of laughter. Altogether the concert was a huge success, and proved yet again that there is appa- rently no limit to the capabilities of this clever company. Their entertainment throughout is highly artistic and well deserving of every support, it would be difficult to conceive abetter working and satisfactory programme. We aie promised programmes in the near future that will excel anything the Mag- nets have ever done. There iS, indeed, a treat in store, The Male Yoiee Choir held their weekly Sacred Concert on the front last Sunday night, when about a thousand visitors and inhabitants listened with rapt attention. A very good collection was made, every penny of which was handed over to two very deserving cases in the town. Messrs Pare and Bowden gave the free use of the chairs for the evening, so that nothing be deducted from the amount collected. These sacred concerts serve a double purpose, not only do they bring the gospel in sweet and alluring strains of music to the hearing of many who cannot be in- duced to attend a piace of worship, but by using the proceeds in this manner they bring a ray of cheer into hearts stricken by sorrow and sadness. The history of the Male Voice Choir has al- ways been that of the Good Samaritan -tall.: is cheap and common, while good actions are rare and precious.
