Simm are so well known that it hardly needs uny comment hero. 'Miss Siinm hus a voice of intense drair.atic power, and at the same time full and sweet. She gives promise ot .i musical career. The only regrettable feature ut tha toncert was the small attendanuo. The program and its object both merited a packed house.
