Appeal on behalf of Homes for the Aged Poor, by Mrs. DUDLEY BAXTER (the Mayoress of Kensington)

FOR the poor person who has spent a lifetime of independence, achieved by constant hard work, but has not been so lucky as to save enough for the years when work is impossible, the necessity of passing the close of life in a Poor Law Institution is a real tragedy. To save such people from this tragedy is the object of tonight's Good Cause, which provides, at eighteen homes in London, a room rent free and medical attendance to some 180 aged poor. Contributions should be sent to [address removed].

THE Belgian Composer, Gretry (1741-1813), began his musical life with a sore disappointment, and ended it with all kinds of honours and pensions. His disappointment lay in being turned out of a church choir as incapable at the age of eleven ; but when he found sympathetic masters, he got oh fast enough. At seventeen, he had written some little symphonies, and at eighteen he produced a Mass. Then he attracted the attention of a patron, who helped him to go to Italy. He was economical enough to travel to Rome on foot (falling in with an odd companion, a smuggler). He had still another rebuff there, for his master dismissed him as an incompetent student of composition.
