ELTHAM CONCERT-GOERS. Sir,-I would like to draw atten tion to what appears to be thought lessness on the part of some people who attend .our concerts. They get_ in the doorway or at the back of the hall, and carry on a conversation while 'items are being rendered, and not only spoil the pleasure for others, but make it hard for the performers. The last concei t was a noted example, and some of the best items we have heard-in the hall were hardly heard by some of us, owing to so much chatter.-Yours, etc., PRO BONO PUBLICO.
