Current Concerns. 'Train up a child in the way it should go, and when Jt is old1 it' will not depart therefrom,' was assuredly never meant for the daughtera of Peak Hill. Leastways, tins would bo the conclusion of anyone visitingthB vari ous dances held of laid. Especially would it be the case in the last social function of this description. The hull was literally packed with children of both sexos— though the girls predomi nated — who' were stepping the light fantastic like old veterans, until the ' wee ' small hours of morning.
