Mr Thns W Piorcrnffc J -1 no ? J.P., Alderman T. Martin Williams, J.P., and Mr Ernest Lloyd. The boys stood smartly at attention while the speakers impressed upon their young minds the importance at all times, under all cir- cumstances, of playing the game"—be honest, straightforward, clean in body and mind, in fact, live up to the excel- lent requirements of the Scout Law." By so doing they would be more manly and grow up to be better citizens in every way. The boys paid the greatest attention to the several speakers who spoke in a lucid simple manner. We venture to prophesy that some of the excellent advices given will be remem- bered by the boys for a long time to come. After the boys were dismissed, Mr T. W. Piggott was unanimously elected to the chair. Mr Piggott explained the purport of the meeting, viz., to further what he considered to be one of the best movements that could be started in the town.
