On Monday evening, at the practice of the Mornington Amateur Orchestral Society, Mr R. Jackson, the conductor, was presented with a table lamp. Mr T. N. Jory, in miking the presentation on behalf of the, members, referred to Mr Jackson’s methods of conducting the orchestra as being most praiseworthy, and held that the standard of proficiency now gained by the_ society was very largely due to the conductor’s capable and persevering manner. The many friends of Mrs Hatton, president of the Franchise League, will be glad to learn that the operation which she was compelled to undergo- on Monday last has proved successful.
