Dawn of Peace Anniversary.
On Thursday evening the thirteenth anniversary of the above Lodge was celebrated by a tea and concert m the Templar Hall. The pro* ceedings were exceedingly well attended, the Hall being filled to the doors, and many persons having to stand during the meeting. The tables were well spread with good things, and were presided over by the Sisters of the Lodge. Tea over, the room was re-arranged for the concert, which was under the charge of Mr G. W. Andrews, C.T., who opened with a few remarks on the Order m general, and the Lodpe m particular, stating that during the thirteen years of the ktter's existence it has averaged over fifty pledges per year. A very earnest invitation was given to those who were not members to join at once, and advance a cause which meant good to all. The programme included contributions from members and friends as follows :—Mr Brooks, piano ; Mr and Miss Simmonds, violin; Mr Pick ford, song ; Miss and Master Fowke, violin ; Mrs Burfoot, song ; Mr Potter, comic reading ; Miss C. Steele, song ; Mr D. Leitch, cornet solo ; Mr Dowall, flute ; Misses Addis and Miss Crum, recitation ; Mr Marsden, the hand bells, which was the feature of the evening. The Rev. E. A. Scott gave a short address m favor of the temperance cause, referring strongly to the gambling curse also, as a growing evil which needs to be put down. He complimented the Lodge on its progress and good work done. With a. very hearty vote of thanks to all helpers, one of the most successful meetings ever held m the Hall was brought to a close by God save ths Queen on the bells.
