AKAROA FIRE BRIGADE.
In spite of the war, there was a good attendance of children at the ball last Thursday night. Many came in from German Bay and other districts, and the sight of the children was a very pleasing one. A number of spectators assembled in the gallery, Tin dance was well managed by the ladie?, who have given up a great deal of time to the practices. The idea of 'holding fchis annual ball is an excel- ! lent one, as it gives every child an opportunity to learn to dance, and the children should thank the Akaroa ladies wbo give so much time and trouble for their instruction. The Fire Brigade provided an. excellent supper, and the children went home at 10.30 affcur a most enjoyable evening. As to the costumes, some of the sets were excellently thought out, notably that of the cricketers (the bigger girl 3 tvnd boys). It looked 1 especially well at tbig time, as the colours were those of the flags of Britain aod France, red, , white and blue-
