S DRUIDS'. GALA. The annual gala of the,.Druids was opened by the Governor, Sir Arthur Stanley, at the Exhibition building in the presence of a large gathering on Saturday last. It is proving a worthy successor to so many worthy predecessors in the noble cause of charity, and it is gratifying to re flect that our own stall is playing no insignificant part in the general scheme. It is within a few feet. of the main entrance. It is the first stall oni the right hand .side, in fact, and if anything more were wanted to distiinguish it, the familiar red and blue colors of our football club would supply thie deficiency. A busy time has been spent there by our i'e presentative workers in the cause of charity; the smaller stock had. in deed, been almost completely disposed of by Monday evening; and the prin cipal concern of assistaints now is to sell as many tickets as possible in the raffles for the bedstead and din ing room suite, etc. Perhaps the most energetic of the local iorkers "was ...
