BREVITIES. Our local bowling club have not entered a rink for the Invercargill tournament, as there are several inter-club matches to be played on during the Easter holidays, for prizes presented by the President and VicePresidents. Mr Salmon, our postmaster, has recently returned from a holiday, and Mr Fordham is now on leave, taking a spell from post office business. The s.s. Maheno is expected to arrive from Melbourne on Sunday instead of Monday. The local Guards held a very successful social last Friday, and I understand everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves. A large number of residents have taken advantage of the special excursion to Christchurch, with the object of seeing the Exhibition. The local Foresters are having a fruit supper with a few of their ■friends next Thursday evening. MAGISTRATE’S COURT.
