Norton and the Organist. At the Sydney City Council inquiry M. Wiegand, the.city organist, was examined and was drawn out by Alderman Norton with interesting results. Don't you think said Norton, that in playing at St. Patrick's you are acting unfairly to Australian musicians 1 — certainly not ; never.

Silk aud satins, laces and Jewells, are in themselvas but a small adjunct to boauty if ladies only knew it.
