On Friday evening last the Bushman's Pride Lodge, 1.0. G.T., held its anniversary, the schoolroom being beautifully decorated for the occasion with wild ferns, the native clematis, and holly, mistletoe, and garden flowers. One hundred and twenty members and friends sat down to a sumptuous tea provided m Mrs Knight's usual. style. After tea a concert was held, m which the following ladies and gentlemen took part: —Mrs and Mrs Lylian, Mr R. Lyn'es, Mr Rands, Mr Grainger, and Mr R. Fagan. Mr Jas. Ross afforded much amusement by contributing a Scotch reading.. The concert was followed by a farce, the impersonations being capitally sustained by Messrs Lynes and Rands, assisted by Mr Graineer. It is only fair to allude to the generous attendance and assistance of the Methven visitors, who, m every way possible, contributed m no Small degree to the success of the meeting; m fact, taken as a whole, this can be culled the most successful meeting since the foundation of the lodjje. Tho chair was occupied by Mr Lylian. At the conclusion of the entertainment a public ball was held, Mr W. Symes supplying the music for the dancing m his well known inspiriting manner. The attendance at the ball was vei-y larjje, the only ground for complaint being the comparative smallness of the room, which; was certainly felt when thirty couples stood up who had come to dance, and meant doing so. Refreshments were served m the ante-room, and all left towards dawn, thoroughly satisfied with the entertainment provided.
