Tasmanian Vocalist. Miss Kitty Longsmith who has been visiting the mainland returned &nbsp; to Launceston last week. Whilst in Melborne she sang to Signor Lacer - dote and Mr Henry Bracy (of the J. C. Williamson Co.) Mr Bracy said that Miss Longsmith had a glorious voice splendidly trained and regrett- ed she had not been with the Com- pany long before. He could not un- derstand where she had hidden her- self. He wanted au immediate en- gagement for the "Melba" season but Miss Longsmith had to decline the "immediate" engagement wish- ing first to confer with her parents and her teacher (Mr Jensen). Most probably Miss Longsmith will return to Melbourne later in the year. Signor Lacerdote was also much im- pressed with Miss Longsmith's voice and said all her notes rang "true as a bell."
