Never before has the Invercargill public had such a chance of amusement and instruction. Their visit has been eagerly awaited by a large number of people, and their efforts to cater a very high-class entertainment has been -duly rewarded. Those who have not yet attended should make a point of being- there to-day. Mothers should bring their children to the* grand matinee this afternoon and enjoy the good things provided. To-night a new performance is being presented, and trains are being -delated to give Bluff residents a ohairce to witness the performance, and it should be largely availed of. A remarkably high standard has been set by Mr West and the Brescians. and the patronage ace corded is a striking compliment of their ability. It is purely an entertainment for the people, at very popular prices-, viz.. Bs. 2s, and Is. The corporation staff, under Mr Stone, the engineer, have risen to the occasion, and Mr West is delighted- at the manner in which he is able to show the pictures. The singing and playing of the Brescians is much admired. They are finished performers, and must be. heard to be appreciated. The popular manager. Mr (lee, is delighted with the patronage accorded, and their stay in Invercargill is being made a pleasant one.
