[Communicated.] It was our privilege to attend the entertainment given by the children of the Aviston Schools, on the evening of Jan. 21. An enter- tainment by the children is always interesting owing to the great naturalness xhich xill crop out, and the absence of many uncom- mendable features often exhibited at occasions of this kind by persons of an older growth. This also ac- counts why an audience is glad to overlook possible imperfectiohs, and why they are always willing to applaud every effort of the lit- tle f-lks. And why should not happy,innocent youth be encourag- edm ths way? Ihe discourage. ments:and'.rebuffs o{a critical and of- ten heartless world will overtake them only:to seen. The wcather was lovely, roads excellent and so the Sch.ol ltall was soon filled to overflowing with the parents and friends of the little people. We do not desire to enter into detail about the program. Suffice it to say that wlfile there were some im- perfections, and while some o! course did better than others, the recitations were creditable, the short plays laughable and well re- ceived by the audience, while the music showed that the voices had been under the skillful training of a master hand. The tableaux were very fine and excited admi- ration, while the/pagic lantern ex- hibition was insthctive as well as entertaining.. The principal and teachers of the Aviston schools. have cause to feel proud of this effort on the part of their pupils, and may rest assured that the large audience went away avell pleased with the evening s entertainment.
