INDUSTRIAL.; Notwithstanding the drought which was prolonged during nearly thn whole winter aud spring, and tho considerable loss and damage it occasioned in a good many inr-tauces, the fruit industry made substantial progress during the year 1S8S. The fruitgrowers of Central Cum berland, thanks to the energising action of the Fruitgrowers Union, are fast a wakening to the fact that if they clesiro to bo successful in their business thev must eschew 'rule of thumb.' and go iu with patience aud intelligent obser vation for tho best horticultural processes that are suitable to tho local environment. The Union hns done good work with persistent earnestness right through tho year. It is thoroughly representative of the staple district industry ; but it does not yet receive that amount of support from the fruitgrowers to which it is justly entitled beciiu.se of its stren uous exertiousiutlieireau.se.

THE SNOWDKOP PANTOMIME. AVith such a big gun in the burnt cork line as Mr. AH. Moynham to superintend their show, the Snowdrop Minstrels, to n packed house, got through a first-class programme of minstrelsy, a pantomime, 'Tho Black Blue Beard,' a comical transformation scene, and a side-splitting harlequinade, on Boxing night. All the sonsrs went well in the chairs. Mr. Moynham was encored for his effort, and Messrs. J nmieson, Reilly and Thompson kept the fun going with him. The blacl- panto mime ' Blue Beard, or the Merry Musselman's Mother-in-law,' created roars of laughter, owing to the funny characterisations of Messrs. Moynham, Jamiesou, Thompson, and Keilly. The transformation scene, ' Tho Glittering Halls of the Mouto-de-Piete,' was Tery comical, and tho baloon ascent a la Williams and Baldwin, was simply excruciat ingly funny. The harlequinade went off swimmingly ; Messrs. Moynham, Jamieson, Garlick, King and Keilly making tho best possible use of their characters.
