Despite the unt'avourab'a condition of the weather, there wa3 a good attendance, fully forty couples comprised of both young and old, participating m tripping " the light fantastic too." The chair was occupied by Mr Peter Stewart (chieftain), who delivered a brief opening speech, m which he congratulated those assembled on having ventured oufci m such unpropitious weather. The mere fact of so many bavins' faced the unfavourablo elements that evening was conclusive proof that, the Society was fairly established and its operations were being worthily supported by members. Mr Stewart concluded a brief but happy speech by expressing a hope that all present would thoroughly enjoy thenißelT^s. During the evening, m addition to the various dances comprised on the programme the following items wera contributed, and needless to say, were highly appreciated :-—Songß, Mr John Lane and Miss Terris; instrumental item. by members of the Society j pianoforte soloMrs Donald McLean, Mus. Bao. The danea music, which was played m splendid time and harmony, was contributed chiefly by lady members of the Society. The catering was m the hands of Mr and Mrs Elliott, who were indefatigable m their endeavours to give the fullest satisfaction.
