Seeing the hall at Waimahaka ighted up I took a walk oven to see the cause, and on making inquiries I found that the railway employes were holding their annual social. The hall presented the appearance of fairyland, decorated with ferns, flags, and Chinese lanterns, and photos of locomotives and Union 'diplomas. The stage was lit up the full width with red. . white, and green lamps. The grand march, which was led off by Mr and Mrs Soulsby, consisted of fhtv couples, and the floor was in perfect condition. The music, which was excellent, was played by the Messrs Shirley (father and son). Mr .]. Mclntosh ably acted as M.C., and kept things lively. During the intervals song« were contributed by Miss Joss, of Bluff, and by Messrs Shirley (2), Campbell, Murphy, and Conly' The accompaniments were played by Miss Templeton. The catering was in the hands of Mr J. Templeton, Waimahaka, who gave great satisfaction. The railway stall (which consists of six members) all worked with a will, and must feel gratified at the satisfactory results. Mr R. Stewart acted as secret ay in an efficient manner.
