The Otago Public Service Club held another very enjoyable "ladies' evening" at their club rooms last night. Messrs Darton, Conn, and Finnegan, who were in charge of the arrangements, deserve great credit for the admirable way the rooms were decorated, especially the supper room ; the table with its crystal and varied abundance of flowers looked superb, setting it off to perfection. Miss E. Jacobs and Messrs A. Clothier, G. B. Dall, and A. J. Morrison were the vocalists. Miss Lichtenstein played the accompaniments in her usual efficient style. Dancing was indulged in till 12 30 to excellent music supplied by Mr B. Yates. This was the most successful of the series held so far.

An entertainment took place last night in St. Martin's Sahoolroom, North-east Valley, the Rev. Canon Richards presiding. Most oi the numhcis on the programme were encored. Miss Lena Treseder sang ' Last night,' and took part in a trio with her sister aud Mr Eva. Songs were also contributed by Mrs Strain (' Love's good-night'), Miss Logie ('Sweet and low'), Miss Pyrke {'A summer shower'), Mr E. Towsey {' Moua'), Mr H. L\J!y (' I trust you still'), Mr R. Smith ('Queen of the Earth'), Mr Eva ('Skipper of St. Ives'), and Mr Hopcraft ('The Garonne'). Mr A. W. Lilly played a pianoforte selection and shared the oec-ompauiments with Mr Towsey. Mr Wathen gave an address on ' The Study of ElocutioD,' and Master A. Loring varied the items with a humorous recitation. Similar entertainments are to be held at fortnightly intervals.

The reappearance of the Roscius Dramatic Society at the Princess's Theatre to-morrow and Saturday evenings in Palgrave Simpson's charming comedy-drama 'Fate's Decree' promises to attract crowded houses. The performances will be patronised by the Mayor and City Council, the Dunedin Free Public Library Association, and other bodies. A number of striking photographic groups of the principal scenes in the drama have attracted considerable attraction. The atage management is under the direction of iir Barrie Marschel. In view of the heavy booking, the funds of the proposed Dunedin free public library, for which the entertainments have been promoted, should be largely increased.
