ally, is of the first order, and the scenic effects attained in the settings of the various acts are splendid.

Mrs. Macdonald Fahey, who is about to start Coast to Coast tour, will sing in Victoria September 24
The cancellation early in the Summer of the proposed recital which was to have been given by Mrs. Macdonald Fahey was the occasion of very general disappointment among her hosts of admirers here, who have been anticipating, however, that opportunity would be given to hear her yet once again before her return East. It is now announced that arrangements have been concluded with the officers of the Metropolitan Methodist Church for a recital to be given there on Friday, September 24. Mrs. Fahey is at present in Prince Rupert, and on Tuesday evening will appear in the first concert of a series which she will give before she returns to the city. Her recital in Victoria, the programme for which will be announced in due course, may be called "Special Request Recital," as until a few days ago it had not been intended to include this city in the Coast to Coast tour which she is about to give. The forthcoming event will be very keenly looked forward to by all music lovers here.
