CLARENCE TOWN. The members of the Clarence Town Band of Hope held their monthly meeting on Thursday evening last in the School of Arts. Although the weather was threatening the hall was crowded. A varied and most enjoyable programme was successfully rendered, the majority of the performers being from Sydney, at present guests of Mr. J. T. Junor, of ' Banamba,' Seaham. The entertainment was opened with a pianoforte duet by the Misses McNichol and Dunlop, ' Great Globe Quadrilles.' Later in the evening these ladies again favoured the audience with 'Prince Imperial Quadrille.'
