BOY SCOUTS' CONCERT.
Successful Effort for Prince of Wales' Fund.
Another successful effort on behalf of the Prince of Wales' Fund took place on Saturday evening at St. Patrick's Hall, when the Boy Scouts gave a most enjoyable concert, which was well attended. Among those present were H.E. the Officer Commanding, Commodore Anstruther and Major Bowen, Chief Scout. The Scouts came to the fore in a humorous playlet entitled "Winning a Recruit," a number which elicited roars of laughter and demonstrated the performers' ability in things other than scouting. A monologue, "Our whist drive and concert," by Mr. Blake, was also well received, while Mrs. Goodman sang most pleasingly.
