SCHOOL TEA PARTY.


       The teachers of Lapstone-road Infants School held their annual party
last Friday night. There were upwards of 20 present, and under the excellent
direction of that popular M. C. (Mr. J. BOWNESS) a very enjoyable evening was
spent. Miss. DAWSON contributed to the creature comforts of the party by laying
a tempting and plentiful table, which fact was not by any means ignored by the
party present. The dance which followed was heartily indulged in, and
continued until about 1-30.
