St. Leonards to Kirkstall. The folllowing is taken from the Bella rine " Herald" of Monday last: The departure of Mr. and Mrs. II. J. Hatters and family from this district to Kirkstall leaves a vacancy which will be hard lo fill. During his nine and a half years' control of the St. Leonards school Mr. Hatters proved himself a teacher of ability, and obtained some splendid school records. During his term there he sent forward 17 scholars for the several certifi cates, and of these 16 passed with credit, and the 17th failed only through ill-health. In private life at Portarlington Mr. Hat ters proved himself a gifted musician, and those violin solos which have so often delighted local audiences, will be greatly missed at our entertainments. He was one of the founders of the Young Men's Athletic Club, and as its instructor he proved himself a boon to the members.
