Eleven competed. Considerable interest and amusement were created by the competitions. The 21 prop:r Dames puzzled the scripture readers, and the unpunctuated reading was a problem diffi- cult to solve, whilst the subject of the impromptu speech taxed the oratorial skill of the competitors, and the given time of three minutes was a apaca too extensive for some of the speakers to fill. The pro- ceeds of the entertainment were in aid of the funds of the Sunday School. There was a good attendance, and all seemed to enjoy the rendering of the pro- grame. The Chairman at the clo-te expressed thanks to Mr Lloyd for adjudicating, and to all who had taken part. =
