DAIRYING AT THE PENINSULA.
The Government dairy expert was to have met the residents of the Peninsula last evening at the Highcliff Drillshed for the purpose of discussing the dairy industry. Some 200 persons, amongst whom was a goodly number of females, assembled at the meeting place at the hour appointed, but after waiting about an hour it began to dawn upon them that the meeting would net eventuate. A messenger being despatched to the Hon. W. M. Larnach’s residence, it was found that the expert had not arrived, owing to an unfortunate misunderstanding which had arisen. When it was discovered that the residents had assembled to no purpose, several proposals wore made by those present to take advantage of the oppor-tunity-one suggesting that a dance should be held, another that an impromptu concert should be arranged, while a facetiouslyinclined individual thought that the questions “ Is marriage a failure ?" and “ Should the franchise be extended to females ?” should be discussed. None of these suggestions, however, were adopted, aud the residents returned to their homes. We understand that the meeting will take place next Friday, and on Saturday practical illustra tions of the various methods of battermaking, etc., will be given.
