LEAVITT HOUSE BAZAAR.
The annual sale of work held under the auspices of the Women's Christian Temperance Union for the support of the work carried ou at Leavitt House will this year be on a somewhat more extended scale than last year, and many of those who this evening go down to that hive of industry at the foot of Albany street will be rather surprised at the excellence and variety of the articles ou the stalls. Dr Stuatt is to give the opening address at?.3o, after which there will bo singing and reciting by local amateurs, which will form an agreeable interlude to the more serious business of the evening. Paying a visit to Leavitt House this afternoon we found a really capital display of fancy and plain needlework done by girls varying from nine to twenty years of age - some of the work being such as would do credit to any of the advanced schools; a large assortment of dolls and other desirahles contributed by friends of the institution ; and a varied assortment of articles manufactured by the bojg, consisting of cone work, leather work (including a number of pictmeframeß), paper work, ornamented fans for wall decoration, toys, and other things which would take a lot of space to catalogue. There is also a Christmas tree, furnished entirely by the girls. The good ladies who have charge of the classes have every reason to bo satisfied with tho work of their pupils, and doubtless there will be ready Bale for everything. Part of the proceedings will be the presentation of prizes to thoso boys entitled to them. Over thirty competed, and the prize-takers are: For the most work and the best worker, Albert Galland (14), second prize John Galland (14); for the prettiest piece of paper work, Tom Brodie (13); for the best leather work, Willie Simpson (15); for the best cone work, Charlie Maclean (lo); Bible class prize, James Gray. It may be mentioned that Mrs Miller has seventy-five girls in her classes, and there are eighty-six boys in the classes presided over by Mrs M'Kenzie. There is to be a refreshment room, attended by the Y's, in connection with the bazaar.
