The building was crowded, and although the teachers done all they could to find seating accommo dation the stream of patrons was too continuous, and before the appointed time of commencement standing room was at a premium. The result of tho concert, both from a stand point of merit as well as of patronage and finance, must be gratifying in deed to the Principal (Mr. F. Neal) and the staff of teachers who worked so assidiously to prepare the scholars under their charge. The pity of it is that we have not a.hall of sufficient dimensions to accommodate a large audience and thus give the perform ers a better opportunity of displaying their talsnts. Mr.. Arthur Big...
