THE WAKANUI SCHOOL AFFAIR.
Last Sunday was the day on which the usual fortnightly service is held by the Presbyterians at the. Wakanui School. There was no treasurer of the church standing by with the needful three shillings, to mollify the outraged School Committee, and, consequently, there was no admission for the worshippers to the school, as the Chairman had taken away the key and locked out all and sundry. The congregation was unusually large, as was to be expected, and they therefore adjourned to a neighboring gully, and held service in the open air, the Rev. Mr. Beattie preaching. We hear that a meeting of the local Church Committee will be held on Saturday evening to consider matters, and to take steps for having the building of a new church started at once. Meanwhile, services will be conducted a - .. Mr. David Wilson’s farmhouse. The key of the school having been carried off on Sunday and not returned on Monday morning, there was no getting in for the master and his scholars, so that the young ones enjoyed a holiday quite unexpectedly —no doubt to their great joy.
