Higgins, treasurer, charac terised Monday's proceedings at the Fete as the most miserable show ever placed before the public by the A.N.A. To judge by the airs of importance which the members of the executive were as they strutted about the grounds, onii. would think they were doing some thing grand instead of bringing on some third-rate bicycle and foot races.

REV. MR. HOLLOW. Encomiums at Holy Trinity Meeting. Congregation and Archbishop. New Vicar's Career. There was a deeply pathetic note about the proceedings at the Holy Trinity parish hall on Wednesday night. The reason lay. in the fact that the Vicar, Rev. HI. Stanley Hol low, M.A., was occupying the chair for the last time,, after over five years' successful work in Port Mel bourne. In his opening address the Vicar congratulated the congregation on the excellent progress made during the year. He did not require to speak to the meeting at any length, he said, as the annual report spoke for itself. The one reason only he was unable to accept a presentation from the congregation in going away was that he felt rather mean about leaving Port Melbourne. He had the feelii? that he had climbed to success over the shoulders of the people who had aided him. so generously. THANKS TO PARISH WORKERS. Still, the position at Geelong was one which he could not afford-to let pass, and he would have...
