September 16.— Tree-planting has been carried out on the Mortlock recreation park lately by Mr. S. Torr and Mr. F. H. Marston, 350 trees being planted, comprising 100 white cedars, 100 pines, and 150 mixed gums. They were put in just in time to catch our September rains. Six hundred, trees were planted there last season, but owing to the season being dry most of them died.
A meeting of the committee of the children’s annual Eight Hours sports was held in the institute on Saturday last, when Mr. C. Pulford submitted a satisfactory balance sheet. He was again re-elected secretary and collector, Mr. S. Torr resigning his position.
