COMPETITIVE CONCERTS.

    It has been found necessary to postpone the competitive concerts in connection with the Kempsey Methodist Flower Show. The new dates will be Ladies’ Concert, September 7th; Gents’ Concert, September 12th. The interest in these concerts is growing and the ladies are certain they will win.

————
SCHOOL OF ARTS.

    At the first meeting of the new Committee of the Kempsey School of Arts last night, the following officers were elected for the ensuing year: President, Mr P Fleming; Vice-Presidents, Messrs G Pennefather and W Layton; Secretary, Mr RC Cliff; Treasurer, Mr Hutchison; Auditor, Mr DD Gillies; Librarian, Mr G Pennefather.

————
SURF CLUB DANCE.

    The dances under the auspices of the Kempsey and Crescent Head Surf Life-Saving Club still hold a high place in popularity among dancers. Wednesday night’s dance at the Good Templars’ Hall proved no exception to the rule. Under the able guidance of Mr J Ambler as MC, with the capital music of Mrs Connors at the piano, everything went with a swing from start to finish.

————
REGISTRATION OF BRANDS.

    Stockowners would be wise to bear in mind that all registrations of brands must be made by September 30th. Those who have not given this matter attention should do so at once, as after that date the brand will be cancelled and the only way then to procure a brand is to make application for a new one, which will be a rather expensive job.

————
PP BOARD.

    A list is being compiled of those who have failed to pay their rates to the Port Macquarie PP [Pastures Protection] Board at Kempsey. As soon as this is complete prosecutions will be instituted for the recovery of rates without any further notice to the ratepayers. A considerable sum of rates is carried forward at the beginning of each financial year and the Board has decided to take the only measure open to them to recover these amounts.

————
SMITHTOWN SCHOOL OF ARTS.

    The annual meeting of the Smithtown School of Arts was held on July 31st. Mr AJH Taylor (President) was in the chair. The balance-sheet and report were adopted. The former showed a substantial balance of nearly £100 to the credit of the institution. It was reported that 45 volumes had been added to the library during the year, and minor repairs had been carried out to the building. The revenue from the billiard tables had been well maintained. Four scholarships were made available to the school children to the library, but these were not used. The following officers were elected:—President, Mr AJH Taylor; Vice-Presidents, Messrs R Plummer and ET Hill; Hon Secretary, Mr D Neal; Treasurer, Mr H Parry; Committee, Messrs RL Morris, F Mohr, RE Neal, WD Barron, D Duncan, P Plummer and B Plummer, H Davey, JJ Brodie and S Green.

————
BOXING CONTEST.

    An interesting 20-round boxing contest will be held at the Victoria Theatre, Kempsey, on Tuesday, September 5th, between Ern McLachlan (Macleay River) and Irish O’Grady (Newcastle). Irish O’Grady is from the same school as Don Burns, who recently defeated Billy Byrnes at Kempsey. He has the unique record of never having been put off his feet, and has gone the 20 rounds on every occasion that he has been scheduled to do so. Ern McLachlan, the local man, has a good record of fights at the Hippodrome and Sydney Stadium and also the Brisbane Stadium, and has eight or nine quick knock-outs to his credit. He was also welterweight champion of New Zealand. Should “Ern” be successful a big effort will be made to bring a first-class man of his weight from Sydney to engage him over the championship distance. O’Grady and McLachlan are both welterweights.

————
BOY SCOUTS' WEEKLY MEETING.

    The boys carried out their general work, as at previous meetings, several passing badges. At the Senior Scouts and Patrol Leaders’ meeting SM Lawrence occupied the chair. A letter had been received from the Dungog Scout Master, proposing to hold a Corroboree at Dungog at the latter end of September, being largely for those not going to Melbourne, 250 scouts being invited, Kempsey Troop included. SM Lawrence said that the fare would be 12/ return, and the citizens of Dungog were going to keep them while they were there. It was decided to see next meeting night how many could go. In reply to SM Lawrence, the Treasurer said that there was £30 in hand, and the expenses would run into about £90. After much discussion the following resolutions were carried: (1) Proposed by K Brenton, seconded by H Thorne: That a stall be hold on August 25th. (2) Proposed by L Muddle, seconded by H Crew: That there be a juvenile ball on August 30th. Prize fore best fancy dress. Admission: Adults 2/-, Juveniles 1/-. (3) That, if possible, there be a citizens’ meeting at a later date.—Contributed.
