A meeting of the Volunteer Eire Brigade for the election of officers for the ensuing year will be held in the old Council Chambers, Burnett street, this evening. The Hon Mrßallance’a visit to Ashburton has been postponed. The Minister will arrive in town by the express to morrow morning.

Professor and Mrs Baldwin gave a second performance at the Oddfellows’ Hall last evening. The attendance was much larger than on the previous evening but we regret to add, it included a few persons who evidently had not sufficient intelligence to enjoy the entertainment themselves nor grace enough to permit others to do so fully. • One individual was particularly offensive, and we are not the least surprised that the disturbance so interfered with the equanimity of Professor and Mrs Baldwin that the success of the entertainment was much impaired. Notwithstanding these interruptions the performers presented a very pleasing programme which was well received by the audience, but owing to Mrs Baldwin’s nervous condition it was impossible to repeat the clairvoyancy seance. Mr Lacey’s ventriloquism was again eminently successful, but it is unfortunate this talented young gentleman does not provide his figures with more than one dialogue. A new feature introduced into the programme, a ballad by Mr Harland, was well received and an encore demanded. The company left for the South this morning.
The adjourned meeting of the South Rakaia School Committee was held last evening. Present—Messrs Hardy (Chairman), L’roadbent, Philips, Fletcher, Rycraft, and Oxley The Master reported the average for the month, 120 ; for the last quarter, 121; working -.verage, 128.8; highest attendance, 146, and number on roll, 181.—The Chat-man's action with regard to the holidays at Easter was approved of.—lt was decided to purchase new ropes for the girls’ swings and to procure new footballs for the boys.—The following long looked for reply was received from the Education Board : “ With reference to your letter of Feb. 17th and other communications, the Board has voted a sum for an addition to your school understood to be sufficient to put up a new room large enough to be a material improvement to the accommodation. The architect will prepare plana and call for lenders as soon as practical.—After the repeated applications mads for urgently required additions, the above letter was received with much satisfaction.— Tho meeting then adjourned.

Liver Complaints.—The digestion cannot be long so seriously disordered without the derangement being perceptible on the countenance. These pills prevent both unpleasant consequences ; they improve the appetite and with the increase of desire for food, they augment the powers of digestion and assimilation in the stomach. Holloways Pills deal most satisfactorily with deranged or diseased conditions of the many organs engaged in extracting nourishment for our bodies from our various diets —as the liver, stomach, and bowels, over all of which they exercise the most salutary control. By resorting at an early stage of this malady to these purifiying and laxative Pills, the dyspeptic is speedily restored to health and strength, and his sallowness gradually vanishes. —fAdvt.
