    Gray's Hall 

    • A concert for the benefit of Mrs Delgaty and family will be given at Kaitangata this evening. The programme, which will be found in our advertising columns, possesses merits that should secure a full attendance. Mr Delgaty was well known to many in Balclutha and Kaitangata and throughout the Clutha district, and we are sure his old acquaintances will only be too glad to do what is in their power to make the concert successful in a pecuniary point of view. Regarding Balclutha we would point out that on many occasions the good people of Kaitangata have arranged for special trains to enable them to patronise similar entertainments in Balclutha. We have an opportunity of returning the compliment to-night. A special train will leave here at 6 30 p.m. returning at the close of the concert. There is thus no excuse left for non-attendance, and we hope to see both the train and the hall crowded.

      The Concert in Gray's Hall, Kaitangata, on Friday evening, 1st inst., for the benefit of Mrs Delgaty, was a complete success in every respect. The purpose for which it was got up was praiseworthy in the extreme, and we were glad to see the public responded in a manner worthy of the occasion. Mr William Shore occupied the chair, and briefly, but feelingly, alluded to the object which had called them together that evening. He said he was glad to see such a large attendance for such a laudable purpose, but from the first time the question of the concert had been mooted, he had little doubt of the result, knowing the generous and sympathising hearts of the people of the district. He concluded by reading a letter of thanks from Mrs Delgaty, which he very truly observed spoke far more eloquently to them than any of the stereotyped phrases commonly used by Chairmen on similar occasions. He wished to thank them one and all for their attendance, and felt quite sure the pleasure the performers felt in giving their service was equalled by that of the audience in giving their assistance to such a benevolent object as the one that had called them together that evening. The programme was then gone through in first-class style, both vocal and instrumental. The usual votes of thanks to the performers, and the Chairman, brought the Concert to a close. A dance followed, which was patronised by old and young till an early hour the following morning, The proceeds amounted to L31.
