Altogether about 100 young folk were oonveyed to the picnic ground by means of waggon and lorry. The • youngsters' were in oharge of the officers of the Reohabite Tent and the Band of Hope, and the whole of the pro* ceedings from beginning to end passed oS without a hitch. Not a little interest was shown in the various races and oompefci* tions, which were held throughout the afternoon and evening. Superintendent Stewart was the head of the sports com mittee, and to say that he managed things properly would not be saying enough—he managed, or rather con" trolled, the matters entrusted to bis j supervision excellently, and it may be sIbo said that he did not receive much help from the aeoretary and other officers, who were apparently busy attending to the welfare of the young ladies.
