I A couple of fine concerts will be give next Wednesday by Miss Alys Hateman, the famous Soprano, who is bringing Mr. Montagu Nathan, the wW known violinist; Mr. Purlovitx, the famous pianist, and other fine artists.
Mima Bateman deserves * specially warm welcome at Southampton, inasmuch as. thanks to her untiring efforts on behalf of the Titanic Relief Fund, a cheque of considerable value was sent for th» benefit of sufferers by the great disaster.
In addition to her efforts on Ixrhalf of various beneficent objects. Miss Hateman's concerts on board the various liners on which she has travelled to and from America and Canada have always resulted in a substantial donation to the Seamen's Widows' and. Orphans' Fund.
Miss Bateman will submit a fine programme, and it is to be hoped that her splendid efforts in other directions will be rewarded with marked appreciation.
The territory on the border of the U.S.A. and Mexico is a convenient hunting ground for wrong doers, while the vicinity of the oorder also occa sionally sexves as a shelter for the innocent, and ~ Over the Divide " was a reproduction the latter incidents.
There is some fine riding shown, and the\chasc to the Mexican border ends with only the benefit of a few hundred yards to the pursued.

THE PALACE.
Patrons of the Pal ice are well catered for this week, and the bill provided is a varied and lengthy
Palace programmes have always been noted for the quality of their sketches, and Mr- Herbert Landeck breaks new ground iu his lates.L dramatic playlet, A Son of a Jew."
Both in conception, production, and acting, the | trifle is quite m little n aslendeee In it^\gay, and Mr. Landeck, as the old Jewish money-lender. I whose son, an undergraduate at Oxford, is hall 1 ashamed of him, carries the piece to success on his own shoulders.
It would be unfair to disclose the whole plot, but the old Jew, who, beneath a rough, uncultured exterior, hides a heart of gold, finds his lie-loved " Ikry " entangled in the meshes of a fortune hunting adventuress and a racing sharp, and. after some exciting episodes, rescues him from the toils. The little sketch is admirably played.
Sharp's troinboneers. including Schubert Sharp, demonstrate the possibilities of the trombone as a solo instrument, and are equally successful ill numbers of such divers character a* "Alexander's Rig-time Band." "In the Shadows," and a majestic excerpt from " Tannhauscr."
Charles Norton is responsible for a novel turn lit* his imitations of popular comedians "At the Races." and his impersonation of R. G. Knowles. Eugene Si ration, Wilkie Bard, and Chirgwin, with < all their mannerisms and little tricks of speech, backing their fancies with Joe" Ely in, who is making a book, is distinctly clever.

In the programme provided for the first pa>t of this week thepe was an admirable balance in the proportion of humorous and more serious sub-
A very fine specimen of the latter type of picture was "Their Golden Anniversary," which dealt in a charming manner with the accidental but happy reunion of an old couple and their son on the occasion of their golden wedding anniversary.
" The Fatal Mirror " was a drama full of intense feeling, and illustrated both the cheap valuation of life in the Wild West and the grim law of an eve for an eye, which prevails there. A number of other excellent films went to complete the programme. while another set of fine subjects is being obtained for exhibition during the end of the
