The pupils of St. Hilda's School are responsible for this good work, they having undertaken to provide the entertainment, the proceeds from which will be devoted to St. Matthew's Day School. There are three stills around the room, and all are most creditable in their dainty arrangements. The flower and lolly stall will be looked after "by the piipils of St. Hilda, the fancy work stall by Mesdames J. S. Watson, Clark, Latter, and Ada Collinson, and the refreshments will be under the charge of Miss M'Lean. The staga has been handsomely decorated in preparation for the entertainment, which commences this evening at 7.30, when scenes from Shakespeare's ' Midsummer Night's Dreim,' with appropriate scenery and costumes, will be rendered by the senior pupils from St. Hilda's.
