The baby show at the carnival on Saturday afternoon was a great success. There were about sixty entries, and the judge (Dr Coughtrey) had his work cut out for him. To the ordinary observer the babies were all exactly alike, with the exception of some trifling differences in costume, but Dr Coughtrey appears to have been able to make some distinctions, and the prizes wero awarded as follows : Best baby between twelve and fifteen months of age (prize, rug and cosey): Annie Turnbnll, fourteen months.

Best baby between sis and twelve months of age (first prize, box of tea and one dozen photob; second, set of silver spoons; third, brooch and jacket): Robert Watson, ten months, 30J'b, 1; Ida Stamper, seven months, 25&1b, 2 ; Alice M. Fairley, eleven months, 28lb, 3; Thomas Neilson, 10 months, 27£lb, special prize.

Best babyunder six months of age (first prize, bracelet; second, a suit of clothe; and doll; third, doll): Archibald Graham; 1; Maggie Campbell, 2; Thomas Ireland, 3. Twins (prize, handsome spring mattress): Mrs Williams' boys, aged three years, 1; Mrs Peter Clark's boy and girl, eighteen month?, special prize. In the evening the Garrison Hall was crowded till the close of the carnival, which' has throughout been an unqualified success. A number of entertainments were provided during the evening, including several varieties of reols, in which Messrs Munro,

GilUes, and Stuart Brothers distingniahed themselves. A squad of the Navals, under Petty-officer Price, went through cutlass drill in a very smart manner; and music was supplied during the evening by the Kaikorai Band. Business was brisk about the stalls, and tig money was the result. It must be satisfactory to the promoters to know that some LfiOO has been realised altogether by the carnival, and all those entrusted with its management in the various branches are to be complimented on the way in which their duties were carried oat.

The name of Mi3S T. Terry was inadvertently omitted from the list of those who assisted at the stalls.
