Concert at Lagmhor.

A. tei-meeting and concert in convection with the Lagmhor Presbyterian Church was held on Thursday last. Tea was provided in a Inr^e marquee adjoining the church. At 8 p.m. an adjournment was made to the church where a good programme of vocal and instrumental uiusic was rendered by local musicians*, and a party from Ashburton under Mr E. Undrill. The Rev. J. Paterson occupied the Chair. The orchestra contributed three selections which were much appreciated by the audience, as was also Mr Undrill's flute solo. Mi' Carson scored a distinct success with his song " When T was a boy at school, " and was enthusiastically encored, responding with the musical monologue, " What is a Gentleman." Two other monologuos given later "If we only knew" and "His only Hair" were aleo well received. Mus Jones sang " Children Asleep " and alao took the solo in the part song " Jingle Pells " which was one of the most successful items of the evening. The quartette " Take my hand" by Mrs Moore, Miss Kelly, and Messrs Irvine and August-was also well rendered. " The gates of the West" by Miss Irvine, and " Sing me to Sleep" by Miss Passmore, were both very well sung, and Mr August was encored for his song, " In old Madrid " responding with " Mona." Short but interesting addresses were given by the Ray. J. Paterson and Mr Hutcheson. Ao the close of the concert, Mr August, oe behalf of the congregation, presented the Rev. Paterson with a very handsome pair of gig lamps and a pair of driving gloves, Mr Patersoa suitably responding. A presentation was also to have been made to the Rev. F. N. Blackiston, who conducts the Church of England services at Lagmhor, but owing to his unavoidable absence, the presentation was made privately. Many thanks are due to all who helped to make the gathering a success, especially to the Ashburton performers, and to Mr Ford of Lagmhor, who assisted materially in many ways.
