At the Choral Hall last 'evening Mr. Clement Wragge, the eminent astronomer, delivered the last of his series of lectures to a crowded, house. Mr. Wragge took for his subject "The Flight of a Soul," and for the space of two hours his audience listened intently to an interesting and highly instructive discourse on ■themes far beyond those of earthly ken. This evening Mr. Wragge lectures on "ißadiom" at St. James' Hall. OPERA iEOUSE. There was another large audience at the Opera House last night, and the excellent programme of pictures supplied by the '.Messrs. Fuller met with evident appreciation. Amongst the pictures which have a distinct educative value the most interesting were those dealing with life and industries in Burmah, ski jumping at Christiania—a highly exciting and exhilarating winter sport, Wilbur Wright in his flying-machine—a picture which depicts that daring aeronaut's evolutions in the air several hundred feet above the ground, Moorish cavalry manoeuvres, and the currant industry. The comic relief is also well supplied. Next Saturday Mr. Fuller will present for the first time to the public of Auckland the cinephone, a marvellous instrument, combining the effects of the cinematograph and the gramophone, and providing moving pictures, with music, song and dialogue. The' current programme -will be repeated again to-night. ROYAL ALBERT HALL. The current programme of pictures was shown again last night. There was a large audience. The pictures will be exhibited again to-night. THE TTVOLI. This evening is the last opportunity of witnessing the present excellent programme at the Tivoli Theatre. Those who have not witnessed the Continental naval manoeuvres, and especially the course of a torpedo fired from one of the battleships, should not miss the final opportunity of seeing a most realistic picture. To-morrow night there will be an entire change of programme.
