Municipal Picnic.

The third annual Municipal picnic was held at Ocean Beach on Wednesday last and largely patronised. The day was fine, and a very enjoyable, time was spent. It was a regular day out i'or the juveniles, and the beach presented quite a gala appearance. A number of races were run, and keenly competed. The secretary (Mr T. Clarke) and his energetic committee are to be congratulated on the success of the gathering, and it is to be hoped that this picnic is the forerunner of many more such gatherings.
