The Rainbow fair in aid of the Presbyterian Chur eh funds was opened in the Drill Hall on Wednesday afternoon by Mr J. (!. Watson, who. in his remarks, hoped the Fair would prove successful. So far the hope has been well maintained, business at the various stalls being - very brisk. The usual raffles, so common at bazaars, are at this fair conspicuous by their absence. Everything is offered for sale with a fair amount of profit. Each evening - proceedings commence with a rainbow song, and the Bluff Xaval Band enliven proceedings outside the hall with a little music. The undermentioned are. the oHlcJals, who have contributed so well to the success of the Fair :—President, Mrs I.aishley ; chairman. Mr Tmlay ; secretaries. Mrs U. Georgeson and Mr I’. C. Andersen. The stall proprietors *aiv as follows ; Tea Kiosk—Mrs .1. Stewart, Misses Mitchell,* Dora Mitchell, Georgeson. Edith. Bertha. Maud and Jessie tintton. Children's Stall—Mrs Boviand and Miss Walker. Plain Work Stall—Mesdames J. Walker. Imlay. and Keith. Pinafore Stall—Mesdames Barber and A. McKenzie. H/aniple Stall—Mesdames Atkinson aircl Mclntosh. Dip—Messrs J. Mathieson, Donaldson. and R. Wright. Kellie Stall—Misses A. Georgeson and I). Williamson., Produce Stall—MV P. Georgeson. Young Kadi os' Stall—Mrs It. Galbraith. Misses Keith, B. White, McLeod , Andersen, and Gifford. Enchanted Swing—Messrs A. McKenzie and C. E. Hansen. Shooting Gallery—Messrs G. Harwood and A. McKenzie. Skittles—Messrs W. Murray a nd R. Galbraith. Doorkeepers—Messrs Keith and r A'. Donaldson. The Fair continues till Saturday night, and is well worth a. visit, if only to look at the. stalls, which are all nicely decorated to represent rainbows. Anyway, once inside, it would be hard, to resist the ladies in their efforts to dispose of so many nice articles. ■ & :
