The recital of tho two ••lessons” hy senior scholars, the singing of special hymns by the children (including Kipling’s • Recessional * to ‘ St. Chrysostom ’), and a, sob excellently rendered hy Miss Nancy Aslin were pleasing features in tho service. The pastor i.Rev. W. J. Ashford) occupied tho pulpit, and delivered a characteristic, address based upon Isaiah Hi., 1: “ But mi your beautiful garments,” which the children and adults evidently followed with verv keen interest.
In tho afternoon a young people’s Ecr vice was held, at which, amongst a nrnn her of good things, including a tastofuilymiderod solo by Misa Dora Hancock, the ••tiny tots” distinguished themselves, to the apparent delight of tho congregation, by singing ’The Finger Family.’ At the evening service Marie Corelli's ‘ln Our Hearts Celestial Voices' was sung as a double quartet, tho “lessons” were again impressively recited by senior scholars, and Master Sidney Swift sang ‘God's Garden.' Thu pastern preached an appropriate sermon to parents and teachers, based upon St. Mark x., 15, 14. The young people’s celebrations are to be brought to a conclusion on Friday evening next, when a tea will bo held, followed by an entertainment, at which tho children will be tha entertainers, including the Boy Scouts, who will give a display of physical exercises. .
