The programme consisted of songs by Misses Selby and Robertson, and Messrs W. Field, H. Crawford, A. Kerr, J . Kerr ; duets by the Misses Drake and Miss Selby and Mr Kerr ; and recitations by Messrs A. C. Toshach, Jas. McXaughton, and Mr A, McKillop : Mr A. Nicholson, contributed a reading. A very interesting competition was an elocutionary contest for two books donated by a member. Mr A. McKillop, of Invercargill, acted as judge. Mr D. Munroe was placed first and Mr H. Crawford second. Mr McKillop, whose verdict was well received, expressed himself as well-pleased with the talent displayed. At the dance, which followed, recitations were given by Miss McNaughton, of Greenhills, and Mr McKillop, both items being accorded hearty applause. Mr Crawford secured a good hearing with a well-rendered song. Mr Drake played the music for the dance.
