The programme was made up of recitations and Swedish drills wdiich were done in consecutive order; the recitations were all carefully selected and added to the completeness in general of the drill concert. Special mention must be made of the smart way in which the girls on the whole acquitted themselves in the performance of these drills. The hoop drill —in this the girls displayed their skill and moved as smartly and as orderly as t r a i n e d soldiers would; then comes the Pole drill which was nene the less interesting and in this, the girls were quite .at home and one would be impn ssed that the) enjoyed this even better. The crowning beauty of the entertainment was that of a candle chill in which all the giils were particularly inti rested. The gaietyof the costumes, the brilliancy of the many lighted candles, the celerity and graceful manner in which the girls manipulated themselves dining this performance won the admiration and applause of the entire assembly.

He was told that it was flag day and unless he had on a flag. no one would buy his greens. "Bahoo" was in a serious plight with these jeering women and /S around, and he didn't go very far from the jeering mass before his misery was relieved by the approach of a winsome who sold him the Union Jack.

Flag Day Observed With Enthusiasm
All Over Jamaica.
"*c
Concluded Prom Tuesday.
The Governor Present.
As stated before, His Excel-
lency Sir William Manning add-
ed to the pleasure and success
of the day's proceedings, by
meeting the citizens on the steps
of the Bank of Nova Scotia
shortly before 3 o'clock in the
afternoon. His Excellency mo
tored down to the appointed
place on time, in his parts be
ing the Honourable Mrs Trefu
sis, the wife of the A. D C. to
the Governor. Sir William
Manning was received by the
Kingston Boy Scouts, under
Scout Master MoCorkell, the
!> ind attached to one of the
Companies playing the nation
al anthem. On leaving the car
the Governor was greeted by
members of the Jamaica War
Contingent Committee, and es-
corted to the centre of thestep,
where he met the Ladies' Com
mitleoMrs. William Wilson,
Mrs M do Cordova and Mrs
Sydney Couperand where one
of the most pleas int'Wcidents
of the day then foil >wed. It
was the presentation to Sir
William Manning of a beautiful
silk miniature Bag by Miss Te^sc
deCordova, daughter of Mr.
O'Connor deCordova of this ci-
tv. 'What is Mis E*cellencv with a smile ns
the emblem was pinned to the
lapel of his coat, by the young
lady, in 1 members of the ladies'
Committee who were in atten-
dance, hastened to reply that
there was uo charge. "I would
dike to buy some flags from the
ladies," then said the Governor
pulling out a bundle of notes
from his pocket, and the adorn-
ment of the lapel of his coat
commenced straightway. The
"flag girls" were hard at work,
an I each and everyone that
pinned on a flag, received a one
pound note for her successful
effort. Spontaneously heart)
Inns broke out for the Chief
Executive of the colony, who
after bowing his response, made
his way over to the "Colon-
nade,'' where he had tea, and
later on started back for King's
House. His visit was a brief
one, but it was a fitting climax
to the Sag day proceedings.
Store Decorations.
Coming down King Street,
the store premises of Messrs.
ftiwaites cS Co., Edwin Char
ley, Clifford Sadler, Sasso and
Miller, the Wilson Building,
Messrs. Sherlock and Smith,
Fashion House and Mr. Charles
Fisher, and the Chineze Hazaar
were all more or less ornately
decorated with Hags and bunt-
ing. Lower down King St.,
the frontages of St. George's
House and "The Sports" also
m nil? a line showing. In Har-
bour Street Mr. Leonard deCor
d ivn's place was dressed up,
hut it must be admitted that,
for ornate display, Mr. C. T.
Isaacs' store should be awarded
the palm. Flags and shrubbery
: were most cunningly interwov-
en into a nice picture, but the
big attraction was the Alpha
! Cottage Band which, local
on the roof of the colonnade,
1 which had been screened over
with an awning played, for sev-
eral hours, most lively airs, and
kept a big crowd in front of the
store for the best part of the
day. The beautiful China set
'presented by Mr. C. T. Isaacs to
the Ladies' Committee to be
sold for the benefit of the War
Contingent Fund, was also very
much admired.
At the Sugar Wharf.
Between four hundred and
five hundred persons assembled
at the Sugar Wnarf (Messrs
Fred L. Myers and Son) yester-
day morning, where for sorni
'hours they were regaled with
music by the Boy Scout Baud.

had been gone through, Mr.

Dear Mr. Editor,
in a masterly and efficient
manner. The programme
was made up of recitations
and Swedish drills wdiich were
done in consecutive order;
the recitations were all care-
fully selected and added to
the completeness in general
of the drill concert. Special
mention must be made of the
smart way in which the girls
on the whole acquitted them-
selves in the performance of
these drills.
The hoop drill in this the
girls displayed their skill and
moved as smartly and as or-
derly as t r a i n e d soldiers
would; then comes the Pole
drill which was nene the less
interesting and in this, the
girls were quite .at home and
one would be impn ssed that
the) enjoyed this even better.
The crowning beauty of the
entertainment was that of a
candle chill in which all the
giils were particularly inti r-
ested. The gaietyof the cos-
tumes, the brilliancy of the
many lighted candles, the
celerity and graceful manner
in which the girls manipulat-
ed themselves dining this
performance won the admira-
tion and applause of the en-
tire assembly.
Miss Clara Bain the pro-
moter of this ever to be re-
membered festivity must be
congratulated for her pains-
taking effort in bringing this
festival ton successful issue,
with the joint assistance of
Misses Irene Bain,Owen Bain,
Christobel Green,Sarah Bain,

Along B certain road in the
suburbs could be seen a group
of women, who had cast aside
ordinary work of the day to
witness what was happening
even if it was to watch the de
coratcd cars run along. It
didn't take long for them to be-
come charged with a spirit of
I nthusiasm, and soon 1 hey
could be seen attacking an F.ast
Indian vendor of vegetables.
He was told that it was flag
day and unless he had on a flag.
no one would buy his greens.
"Bahoo" was in a serious plight
with these jeering women and
/S around, and he didn't go
very far from the jeering mass
before his misery was relieved
by the approach of a winsome
, who sold him the Union
Jack.
