LE BON'S BAY

SCHOOL PICNIC.

The annual school picnic was held on Friday last in beautiful weather. Tbe grounds were fresh and green, a delightful contrast to that so long experienced. Most oftbe residents with their children attended, and the pro gramme of races and other events were proceeded with. Tbe ladies who provided the necessary refreshments attended to the wants of young and old, and a most enjoyable day was spent. As the people departed black clouds came up from the south, and j those living at a distance had a most unenviable experience of rain, bail, thunder and lightning. Tbe hailstones were especially large, and did great damage to tomatoes, cabbage, brocolli, and the leaves of pumpkins So terrifying to the stock was the roar of the storm that very few of the cows could be got in to be milked, and had consequently to be left till tbe follow ing morning.

On the evening of the picnio it is usual to have a dance at which young and old assemble, The storm kept away all hut the most enthusiastic, and the affair was postponed till Mon day evening when a very pleasant evening was spent.
