When the end of the programme was reached the audience must have felt amply repaid for the energy (and coin) expened. Miss Greenhalgh opened the concert with a pianoforte solo execu ted in her usual skilful manner, and led off the second part with an arrange ment of 'Scottish Airs' which was highly approved of by all the Scots --- and non-Scots. Miss McKenzie's con tributions 'Twa's company' and ' Ebrin on the Rhine' were deservedly well reoeived; and Mr. Gilbert's comic   songs ' Your turn next' and ' That'll do' were both warmly encored.
