I HOMAGE TO SHAKESPEARE. I The closing performances of the Stratford- on-Avoa Shakespeare Tercentenary Com- memoration took place on Saturday night amid great enthusiasm. At the close a mag- nificent stage picture was presented, entitled "Homage to Shakespeare," in which over 100 characters took part. The Mayor (Alderman Flower), in the course of a speech, said there was no other theatre in the world that had produced all Shakespeare's plays upon its stage. This tercentenary year they had the assistance of thirty of the most distinguished artists in the dramatic profession desirous of honour- ing Shakespeare. The audience and company sang "Auld Lang Syne" and the National Anthem. Sir Sidney Lee, presiding at the annual meeting at Stratford on Saturday of the trustees of Shakespeare's birthplace, said that they had lost 98 per cent. of their American visitors, but he confidently antei- pated a return to the ordinary numbers I when the war was over.
