    A magic lantern entertainment was given in the Thompson Estate Wesleyan Church on Monday night, at which there was a very good attendance. Mr. Dempsey, of the Junction Park State School, who kindly granted the use of his lantern, was in attendance to take charge of it, and delivered a very interesting address. The first part consisted of a variety of Irish views, including Lakes of Killarney, Cork harbour, scenes in Wicklow. A temperance sketch, entitled " Buy your own cherries," followed, which was read by Miss Florence Sacre, a teacher of the Sunday school, and illustrated by the magic lantern views. The story was equally interesting' to all present, the juveniles being very attentive and quiet. The proceedings closed with a comical piece, after which a hearty vote of thanks was accorded to Mr. Dempsey for his kindness in giving the entertainment. The proceeds were devoted to the trust fund of the church.

    At the fourth celebration of Arbor Day at the Junction Park State School, tho improvement in the appearance of the grounds since 1891 was very manifest. Some of the 1891 trees are now from 10ft to 16ft high, while those planted in 1892 and 1893 have made corresponding progress. Twenty more young trees sent by the Agricultural Department were planted out, principally around the border of the boys' cricket ground. The work this year has been done under skilled direction and on a proper system, the mistakes of past years being carefully avoided The members of the School Committee tendered efficient service throughout the day, as did also several parents who visited the grounds The teachers, too, had a little, more than an eight hour day of it in utilising all the good things generously supplied by the children's friends. In connection with the school gardens prizes were awarded as follow -For the best kept garden, Miss C. Broderick, for the best collection of growing plants and for the tree best attended for the past year, Miss S. Dims. Similar prizes will probably be given in the boys' section. The judging was done by Mr. Williams, nurseryman and florist, of Cooper's Plains, who expressed himself as surprised at the excellent work done by such youthful gardeners. Mr D F Denham, of Boggo road, supplied the prizes. In the afternoon a sports programme was carried out in presence of a large assemblage of patents and friends. Tea and unlimited fruit, cake, and lollies were served out at 5 o'clock, after which an entertainment for the children was given to a packed house A spelling contest lasting a long time was eventually won by W Hinson and C. Broderick. As the audience passed out of the grounds some fireworks were let off by Mr. G. Robson (a member of the school committee), and young and old dispersed after a most enjoyable day.

    In this, as in most of the metropolitan Schools, the wet weather on Wednesday evening interfered with what had promised to be a pronounced success. It came then as a great surprise to the School Committee and teachers to see the large hall in Regent-street well filled by pupils and their friends. The children's breaking-up entertainment was in every very satisfactory, and the financial result also will not fall far short of the anticipations of the committee. The second part of the entertainment included some very clever delineations of character by Professor Blumenthal, who examined phrenologically the heads of several persons from among the audience. His witty remarks on the characteristics revealed by the heads of his subjects caused roars of laughter. The concluding feature in the evening's entertainment was the distribution of prizes earned by regular attendance or by steady work throughout the year. Thirty-four pupils received special prizes for attending punctually on every day throughout the year. In addition each was presented with an ornamentally printed certificate. Over fifty other pupils received prizes for regular attendance, their record being marred in most cases by some trifling blemish, such as being once late, or absent a day. The chairman of the School Committee, Mr. D. F. Denham, in thanking the audience for their attendance, explained that, as the building debt was now almost all paid off, the committee hoped to be able in 1897 to establish a regular fund for the purpose of rewarding or assisting deserving pupils.

    The Junction Park School Committee held their first meeting in the schoolroom on last Friday night. The chairman (Mr. D. F. Denham) reported that the Hon. W. H. Wilson, accompanied by the Under Secretary for Education, had paid a visit to the school on the previous day, and that both had expressed pleasure at the marked success achieved by the committee in beautifying the surroundings of the school. The results of the December entertainment were reported, and the treasurer was instructed to pay the balance owing to the department on account of recent additions to the buildings. The teachers' report on the school showed the attendance to be far higher than ever before, and much more regular than even that in 1896. The committee next laid out a programme of their work for 1897, including the completing of the teacher's residence, new fencing, asphalting of playshed, new lending library, additional levelling, tree planting, and draining additional lavatories, and gymnastic apparatus,

    DUNELLAN STATE SCHOOL.
    [Greenslopes State School, established in 1890 as Dunellan State School] On Friday about 300 children of the school and neighbourhood were, through the liberality of the Stephens Divisional Board, and parents, entertained at a picnic, sports, and open-air tea, in the school grounds, 'which were gaily de decorated with flags for the occasion. Each child was presented with a Jubilee medal, and at the conclusion the scholars were formed in a semicircle in front of the main building, where they sang_ " Rule, Britannia," and " God Save the Queen.'" After certain vociferous cheers, they departed as dusk was setting in.
    JUNCTION PARK SCHOOL.
    The action of the Stephens Board in voting a ¡sum of money to entertain the children of the district schools insured a real "red-letter day" for the pupils. At the above school the celebrations were highly successful. The generous response of parents and friends aided in providing a school treat such as has not "been equalled in the district since 1890, when the building of the new school was celebrated. Arbor' Day was also held, and a memorial banyan tree was planted near the school. A short and highly amusing programme of sports was carried out, after which a very good display of physical drill was given by eight large companies, totalling 400 pupils. Afterwards the battalion formed in solid square, and sang the National Anthem and cheered for the Queen. At 4 o'clock over 750 pupils sat -down to a very liberal tea, and in twenty minutes considerably over half a ton of provisions had disappeared. During the afternoon some members of the Volunteer Band discoursed excellent music, and added much to the general enjoyment. A grotesque fire balloon in the shape of an unwieldy hippopotamus was sent up by Mr. Round (secretary of School Committee), and was an object of great interest and amusement After tea 380 children of the physical drill battalion were present by invitation at a lantern entertainment, where the mirth for an hour was simply uproarious. The day's proceedings closed with a distribution of the sports prizes to the winners. A pleasing feature of the day was the presentation of richly illuminated certificated to 148 pupils who had attended punctually on every school day in the half-year. The proceedings closed with cheers for the members of the Stephens Divisional Board, for the teachers, and for Messrs. Denham and Round, members of the School Committee present. A considerable surplus from the day is to be devoted to adding to the boy's gymnasium and completing the large playroom for the girls.

    In the Centennial Hall on Saturday night tho two South African memorial cots were presented respectively to the committees of the Hospital for Sick Children and the Friendly Societies' Cottage Hospital. It may be explained that when interest in the South African war was at its height two years ago, Miss Kitty M'Killop conceived the idea that some fitting tribute should be paid to Queensland's heroes, who had lost their lives fighting the Boers. This young lady believed that an excellent object-lesson would be provided if the memorial were the outcome of the united efforts of the children of the State
    …A large number had assembled in the Centennial Hall, which was decorated in a manner which especially appealed to one's patriotic sentiments. Pot plants and the flags of Great Britain and her dominions o'er the seas, set off the stage in a most suitable fashion. The cots, fully draped, were also on the stage. Seated before the audience were the members of the A. 0. Foresters' Band, which prior to the meeting and at intervals during the proceedings, provided several excellent instrumental items. No doubt a number of returned contingents were' among the audience, but neither uniforms nor war medals were in existence.
    … The Chairman explained the objects of the gathering, and referred to the enthusiasm that must have been displayed by the children and the promoters of the movement to collect, by penny subscription, sufficient money with which to purchase the two cots. Miss M'Klllop, he said, had undertaken a great deal of substantial work in good causes from time to time. There could not but be a hint of sadness when they remembered the events which the cots were to commemorate. They were to commemorate the death of those gallant fellows who had responded to the call to assist in lighting the Empire's battles, and now lay dead on the South African veldt. In requesting Mrs. Price to make the first presentation, he mentioned that her husband, Colonel Tom Price, had, during in period of the war, led the combined Australian forces. (Applause)
    …Miss M'Klllop, who was received with cheers, said the presentation had come as a great surprise to her, and she could assure them it would be numbered among her most treasured possessions. Much ¡is sho had been interested in the movement, she regretted much more than the occasion for it had ever arisen. She expressed her thanks to the children for sending her and the committee their pennies. She might inform them that the Brisbane Boys' Grammar School headed the list with £5, and the Junction Park State school came next.

    At a meeting of the parents and guardians of children attending the Junction Park State School, at which the Hon. O F. Denham presided, the report presented stated that the principal work undertaken by the committee was the extension of the school reserve, half-an-acre of land being purchased. It had been the aim of the committee to avoid having to make further extensions of the building, if possible, and with that object in view the teachers encouraged children from other localities to attend their own district school. It was not fair to ask the pupils to subscribe for addition to accommodate children not resident in the district. There was ample room for the present attendance of700, and with a little rearrangement seats could easily be provided for another 100 to 150 pupils. The continuation of King-street from Thompson Estate to the northern entrance to the school reserve had occupied attention. The committee made an offer to the Stephens Shire Council to bear nearly half the cost of the land, and there was reason to believe that the matter would be favourably settled immediately. The school building were reported to be in an excellent state and the committee had also improved the water supply. The internal management gave unqualified satisfaction to the Education Department; and the committee, it was remarked, had never been called upon to investigate a complaint. The report was adopted. The treasurer's statement showed an expenditure of -£339 19s., and that the balance in hand was 2s. 2d. A vote of thanks was accorded the retiring committee, and the following were elected! again :-Hon. D. V. -Denham, F..W. Peberdy, John Wadley, John Fowles, C. W Round, W. R. Juster, and P. P. Marshall. A vote of thanks was passed to the chairman, and at a subsequent meeting of the committee Mr. Denham was re-elected chairman. Mr. Peberdy was appointed secretary, and Mr. Wadley treasurer.

    The committee of the Blind Institute in Cornwall-street, South Brisbane, are making an effort to raise funds for the erection of a new wing to accommodate a larger number of Blind children, some of whom are now waiting for admission. To assist in this work some pupils of the State school at Junction Park organised a "half-hour entertainment" in the lunch interval on Thursday. In addition, donations to the fund, were brought from their homes by most of the pupils. The result was a cheque for £6 6s. 6d., which was handed to the superintendent the same afternoon. All sums collected for the above purpose are endowed on a £4 to £1 basis, so that the gross result of the efforts of those school children is a gain, to the building fund.

    Musgrave Park, South Brisbane, waa the scene of an interesting demonstration in aid of the funds of the South Brisbane Benevolent Society on Saturday. This took the form of an exhibition of physical drill (by State school scholars, and musical selections by the Foresters' Band. The park is always a busy place on Saturday afternoon, bowls, tennis, croquet claiming attention in their respective divisions, but on this occasion there was a much larger attendance than usual, and the grounds in the vicinity of the bandstand were gay with flags. Interest was chiefly concentrated in the performance of the school boys, forming Sergeant-major Byrne's physical culture class. These were drawn from the Junction Park, the Pinkenba, the Indooroopilly, and the Clayfield State Schools, and St. John's Day School. Their performances, which were gone through under the direction of their instructor, were admirable both as a display of picturesque athletic exercise and an exhibition of value of physical training in the cultivation of a good physique. The display was much enjoyed by the spectators, who frequently applauded the boys. Advantage was taken of their presence by the Mayor of South Brisbane (Alderman R. E. Burton) to present them with the medals awarded to them in recognition of their work at Patrick's-Day Sports. During the afternoon a collection was taken up in aid of the fund of the society, and young ladies employed themselves in selling dainty sweets for the same laudable object.

    Children's day at the Exhibition proved very popular, and it was estimated that there must have been fully ,15,000 representatives of young Queensland present at Bowen Bark on Saturday. ...One of the features of the morning's display was an exhibition of physical drill by 200 boys from the confined metropolitan schools. His Excellency the. Gc veTnor, accompanied by the Chief Justice (Sir Pope A. Cooper), the Speaker (Sir Alfred Cowley), and Captain Brooke (aide de-camp), witnessed the display. J. here were ten squads of boys, the schools re- presented being Junction, Park, Leichardt-street, East Brisbane, Taringa, Normal School, Woolloongabba, Valley, South Brisbane, Indooroopilly, and West End. There were a few shortages in the Woolloongabba squad, and there were made up from reserves from the other school. The boys looked exceedingly picturesque as they formed up en echelon. All were dressed in white knickers and singlets, but each squad wore distinctive sashes, which enhanced the effect. Ex-Sergeant-major Byrne ably directed the evolutions, to which the accompaniments were played by the Brisbane Concert Band. Some of the exercises were particularly well done by the boys.

    An effort is just now being made by the people of Junction Park and neighbourhood to raise a sum of £150 for the State School Improvement Fund and for debt extinction. With this end in view a two days' carnival or garden fete is being organised, commencing August 31. Vigorous work is going on towards the success of the movement. A meeting of the general and sub-committees was held on Wednesday, and was largely attended, over sixty being present. The ladies' committee reported that a vigorous canvass had been made, and that donations of money, goods, and work were pouring in at a great rate. The old scholars' committee reported that arrangements had been completed for a fancy dress cricket match, and a comic sports programme for one of the days. From the reports of other committees it appears arrangements are rapidly taking shape, and that the result of past months of hard work will be a monster programme of amusements. A specially gratifying feature is the ready co-operation of the metropolitan schools with the committee in their efforts.

Reports presented from sub-committees showed that the secretary was occupied almost continuously in receiving, classifying, and acknowledging donations. Various offers of assistance were accepted, and a further long list of donations and promises was read, amidst applause. During an interval Mr. C- W. Round exhibited two of the balloons which will be sent up at the carnival, and these were much admired. The head teacher reported that all ten of the State schools asked had agreed to send the teams that took part in the display of physical drill at the recent Exhibition. From the reports of the assistant secretaries it seems probable that there will be a very large attendance of the public.

Dempsey secretary) have been at work for months past preparing plain and fancy work for 'the stalls, as well as soliciting donations of all kinds from their friends. The results have so far exceeded the expectations of the promoters that they have had to enlarge the stalls. In this connection a novel idea is the insuring of all goods, which, as they arc received each day, are stored (temporarily) art the teacher's residence. An interesting feature of the large refreshment stall will be the "tea garden” with twenty Geisha girl attendants in costumes.

Mr. Denham watched the lads' work with interest, and in a short address at the termination of the display said he had been very much impressed with the earnest way in which they had carried out the exercises. That was very necessary, for such work could not be done in a listless fashion. He congratulated their instructor, Sergeant-major Byrne, on what had been done, and hoped, his services would be recognised, possibly in the direction of helping the teachers' classes in connection with the cadet movement.

    A most successful and thoroughly enjoyable open-air fete was commenced on Saturday last in the grounds of the Junction Park State School, the object of the entertainment being to raise funds for the fencing of the school grounds, and the preparation of a cricket pitch for the pupils. The opening ceremony was arranged to take place at 3 p.m., and for' some time before that hour every tram from the city carried double loads off passengers, by that by 3 o'clock there was a very large assemblage on the ground. Mr. Barnes, M.L.A., in declaring the fete open, congratulated the promoters on the fine weather prevailing, and on the excellent display of goods for sale. He was pleased that in Queensland State school pupils enjoyed by many advantages, and the Junction Park School record was a creditable one. The number on the roll was 720, and the average daily attendance was 640. He apologised for the absence of the Hon. D. F. Denham, who had been obliged to go to Wynnum to perform a similar ceremony in the absence of the Hon. W. Kidston through illness. He congratulated the headmaster, Mr. Dempsey, and his staff on the success achieved. A most admirable display of physical drill was then given by about 200 boys representing eleven schools, as follows : Junction Park, colours red and blue ; Woolloongabba, red and maroon ; East Brisbane, light blue ; Valley, navy-blue ; Indooroopilly, blue and gold ; Leichhardt street, red and maroon ; Dunellan, light and dark blue ; West End, red and navy blue ;, Taringa, navy-Blue ; Central School, light-blue. The scene was a pretty and inspiriting one, as the sturdy, healthy-looking little lads swung their arms and little young bodies with perfect rhythmical precision, singing their school songs the while. The exercises were carried out under the supervision of Sergeant-major Byrnes, and at the close Mrs. Digby Denham, on behalf of the National Association, presented 'to each lad a handsome silver badge, bearing the words, " National Association, August, 1906," these badges being a recognition of the fine display given by the boys at the recent Exhibition at Bowen Park. After a photograph had been taken, Mr. Dempsey thanked the boys and their teachers for assisting in the display, and they then dispersed in search of other amusements after giving three cheers for Mrs. Denham and Mr. Barnes. A very amusing fancy dress cricket match caused much hilarity, and was really an extremely comical performance. The players were got up to represent firemen, clowns, Gibson girls, policemen, jesters, volunteers, black gin, ambulance men, Father Christmas,

The players were got up to represent firemen, clowns, Gibson girls, policemen, jesters, volunteers, black gins, ambulance men, Father Christmas,

    STATE SCHOOL CADETS.
    INSPECTION BY COLONEL LYSTER AN EXCELLENT MUSTER.

    Much public interest was taken in the parade ot metropolitan State School Cadets held yesterday afternoon. The two battalions assembled at the Adelaide-street drill-shed, under Major Halstead, and marched via Edward, Queen, and George streets to the Domain. Major Halstead was attended by Captain T. H. Dodds, JJ.S.O., staff officer for cadets, and Major Carroll, ot the Instructional Staff, was also present. No. 1 Battalion was commanded by Captain Johnstone, and No. 2 'Battalion by Captain Dempsey. The following numbers were on parade :

    The brigade parade state showed that there were 39 officers (out of 43), and 700 other ranks (out of 720) on parade. No. 2 battalion was not in uniform, and consisted of the newly-formed Cadet Corps. The physique of this battalion re- ceived much favourable comment.
    On arrival at the Domain the parade was formed up in line to receive Colonel Lyster, the State Commandant. The inspecting officer, who was accompanied by Major Haag, was received with a general salute. He then minutely inspected the various companies, asking questions of the cadets as he passed along. The parade next marched past in column, and after wards in quarter column, and Colonel Lyster heartily commended the marching of several of the companies as they went by. The parade waa then subdivided, and each company was exercised by its own commander. Colonel Lyster rode around and watched the companies at drill.

    The parade was next reformed in quarter column, and Colonel Lyster addressed all ranks. He expressed his surprise and certification at the excellent turn out. There were only twenty-three absentees out of a total strength of 720. The drill and training they would receive, and the discipline they would undergo, would help towards the formation of a round and good character. He hoped the boys, after they left school, would join the Senior Cadet Corps, and, later on, go into the other corps of the service, so that, if ever their country needed them, they would be trained and ready for service. So pleased was he with what he had seen that he -would look forward with pleasure to hu next inspection of them. He referred in complementary terms to Major Halstead and added tint the appearance of the Parade, and the attendance, was a high testimony to the organising ability of the Staff Officer for Cadets (Captain Dodds). He hoped the Cadet officers would all be able to attend the school of instruction to be held at Southport in January next, and commended the work they were doing in connection with the corps. He gave a word of advice to all as to footwear, and reminded them that boots with high heels and pointed toes were not serviceable for military work.

    The officers were individually introduced to Colonel Lyster, and the parade was marched back to Adelaide-street and dismissed.

In each of the sixteen classes a first and second prize were awarded for the best year's work and in addition twelve prizes were given for the best home work throughout the year-one in each class. The chairman's annual special prizes were awarded by exhaustive ballot of the pupils as follows -For the most manly boy : Arnold Walker. For the most lady- like girl : Louisa Priest. It was announced that Linda Wohlsen was only two votes behind the successful competitor and Mr. Denham kindly provided an additional special prize for her and warmly complimented the successful competitors on the good opinions of their schoolfellow's. During the afternoon tea and dainty refreshments were provided. Visitors were loud in their praise of the beautiful grounds and the many excellent ariangements for the comfort and amusement of the pupils.

    Junction Park School. The triennial meeting of parents of pupils attending the Junction Park State School was held in the schoolroom last Monday night, the Hon. D. F. Denham in the chair. The retiring school committee presented their report for the three years just ended, and enumerated the various improvements effected during their term of office. Special commendation was given by the meeting for the vigorous work done in draining, levelling, and planting the spacious school reserve. During the counting of the ballot for a new committee the chairman invited suggestions for new work for them. The meeting was unanimous in approval of the projected baths to teach swimming, to be built in the ground lately added to the reserve, and many promises of hearty support were received. The ballot for new committee resulted in the election of seven in the following order :-tMcssis. John Wadley, G. A. Bayard. Hon. D. F. Denham, W. R. J Juster, P. P. Marshall, Jas. Wilson, and K. Down. Mr. Denham was re-elected chairman, and Mr. J. Wadley treasurer, and Mr. E. Down was chosen as secretary. The treasurer's statement showed that the committee took office in 1905, with a balance of a few shillings, that the total outlay was £400 0s 5d., and that £33 7s. 5d. remained in hand, while a further sum of £10 was due and soon to come in. Votes of thanks were accorded the outgoing committee and the chairman, and the meeting before separating gave a hearty expression of satisfaction with the school and confidence in the staff.

    State School Anniversary. The seventeenth anniversary of the opening of the Junction Park State School was celebrated on Saturday afternoon. There was a large assemblage of parents, pupils, teachers, and old scholars, and a thoroughly enjoyable time was spent. The school committee waa represented by the Hon. D. F. Denham (chairman), and Messrs. W. R. Juster, G. H. Bayard, and Jas. Wilson. Mr. Denhiam, addressed the assemblage expressed his pleasure at being present to inaugurate two more improvements to their school. In declaring the new tennis court open for practice, he called on a party of old scholars and friends to give the school pupils an exposition of the game. The new court was found to " play" very well, and the players had an interested crowd of on-lookers all the afternoon. In declaring the new miniature rifle range open for the use of cadets, Mr. Denham said that the Commonwealth Government had made a sensible move a year or two ago in the enrolment of 30,000 Australian military cadets. They had done still better in deciding to place miniature rifle ranges in the State school grounds, so that cadets would bo able to learn to shoot straight, and to learn it in their play-grounds just as they learned cricket or football. This was the first miniature range opened in a Queensland State sehoolground, and the parents present would be able to see for themselves that .there was absolute safety. The sum of £400 had been set apart for providing miniature ranges in schools this year, and doubtless the work would be continued till all the principal schools were provided with them. About 20,000 cadets passed out of the ranks every year, and in ten years time, at this rate, the Commonwealth would have a force of 200,000 young men and lads who had had some training in drill and shooting. When we came to train these young men in the Australian army-of-defence of the future the benefit derived from the cadet movement would be strikingly apparent. Every one hoped there would be no need for war or ¿eating, and the knowledge that Australia had so large a number of drilled men, able to shoot -well, would go a long vvay to deter an cnemy, from attacking the Commonwealth He advised the boys to be diligent in practice, and to use the mean of improvement now at their disposal Three cheers for Mr Denham and the school committee were given bv. the local cadets and the visitor. A rifle match between cadet teams representmg the Junction and Thompson Estate sections ot the cadet compiny was shot off on the new range, and resulted in a win for the Junction team bv 7 point.s Cadet P Clausen made the best score of the day-20 points out of 25-equivalent to a score of 84 under rifle club condition. Two of the teachers -Lieutenant Campbell and Mr C Jones -carired out a sports programme amongst the pupils, the various events being keenly contested and enjoyed. Durng the afternoon light refreshments were despensed under the supervision of the school committee and Mrs J J Dempsey, wife of the head teacher.

    A very successful start was made at the South Brisbane Technical College on Saturday morning with the cookery classes arranged by the Depattmant ot Public Instruction for girls selected from schools on the south-side of the river The schools represented were Coorpanoo, Dunellan Estate, East Brisbane, Norman Park, Kangaroo Point, South Brisbane, West End, Junction Park, and Woolloongabba, and forty two giris attended the classes. Miss Slaughter, the demonstrator, attacted the girls at once with her bright manner of teaching , every step was carefully explained, and subsequent questionings showed that the pupils had a thorough knowledge of the morning's work. Miss Slaughter's tuition was on the most practical lines and it was her intention that the girls shall acquire a thorough knowledge ot the preparation of the whole of a plain meal. Girls were selected for washing up, and to their credits, when volunteers were called for every hand was raised for duty. Their Teachcr impressed them with the fact that even the simplest detail must be well done for learning is tor all time, and bad habits are more easily learned than eradicated. Miss Slaughter's also taught with familiar terms in cookery, and showed them how to ulitilise substitutcs at hand. Nothing was too trival for explanation and demonstration, and the pupils were most responsive. The course demonstrated at the first lesson, included beans boiled to a nice bright green, mashed potatoes, rock cake, apple pie, and baked stuffed mullet-all perfectly cooked and arranged daintily for serving. The cooking room attached to the college occupies the basement. Rows of chairs are placed for pupils while receiving thoretical instruction and for practical work there are tables at which a certain number of giris practice on small quantities of material supplied by the parents, and regarding which they have previously received instruction. The kitchen contains a very fine gas stote and all appliances for cooking. The theory book compiled bythe Misses A and M Schauer is the text book in use, and pupils are expected at the conclusion of the course of instruction to pass examinations both in theory and practical tests.

    The many friends of Mr George Bell- Booth, of Junction terrace, South Brisbane, and chief superintendent A.M.P. Society's Industrial Department, will regret to learn that his youngest son, Andrew, aged five years, has been sent home from the Sick Children's Hospital totally blind the result of an accident. About five months ago the little lad was playing in the play ground of the Junction Park State School, and, in running past several boys who were engaged in a game of tip cat, was struck in the right eye with the bat. Medical aid was immediately called, and it was found that the eye-ball has burst. Acting on advice given, the lad was nursed at home for about three weeks, when the parents, apphending sympathetic inflamination in the left eye, took him to the Children's Hospital, where he was carcfully examined and the injured eye at once removed by Dr. Lockhart Gibson, who expressed regret that the child had not been brought to the institution when the accident happened. In the Hospital every attention that medical and nursing skill could devise was accorded him. but unfortunately, a film had formed over the left eye and left the little patient totally blind. At the time of the accident the child had just commenced to learn his A.B.C.

    School Swimming Pools. Some little time ago the Junction Park State School Committee approached the Brisbane Board of Waterworks with a view to ascertaining the probable cost of sufficient water to supply a concrete swimming pool which it was proposed to establish in the ground of the school. The board replied to the effect that water would be supplied at l0d. per thousand gallons, the same late as charged to municipal baths. At a meeting of the board yesterday a letter was read fiom Mr. E. Down, secretary to the Junction Park School Committee, expressing thanks for the encouraging nature of the board's reply. Mr; Down continued : " I am also to inform you that we have since approached the Minister for Public Instruction on the matter, who, though favourable himself, said it was really a Cabinet matter, being quite a new departure. When it had been considered there, we were informed that the Government could not see its way to give us any assistance in the matter. We are, however, determined not to let the matter drop. In view of the encouragement I've have had from your board we intend to persevere till the means of learning to swim are at the disposal of all the pupils of our school. For these reasons we hope that the option of the terms already offered may be continued to us until my committee are ready to build our school swimining pool." Mr. Hertzberg remarked thut the Road of Waterworks members were unanimous in their desire to encourage swimming, and the chairman, Mr. A. Midson, added. "Anywhere the children are taught and encouraged to swim the water will be supplied at the lowest possible rate."

    At the Junction' Park school the annual prizes were distributed by Mr. W. H. Barnes, M.L.A., in the presence of a large assemblage of parents and past scholars. As in previous years, there were many who had made a perfect year's, attendance- no fewer than 101 boys and girls-and to each of these a gift book was given. The John Fowles' gold medal for the best year's work, was won by Leslie Pitter, with 94 per cent of all the marks given for the year. In each draft there was an award of a first and a second prize, on the same lines, and a first prize for home lessons. The younger scholars had previously had a varied sports programme for toy prizes. Mr. Barnes delivered a happy address to the children, and was accorded three ringing cheers. Later in the afternoon he opened a new tennis court in a remote part of the beautiful school grounds. The court had been laid down by a club, formed from amongst past scholars of the school, and play was indulged in 'till dusk. The new court was pronounced an excellent one for play.

    EVOLUTION OF THE TEACHER A paper on "The evolution of the Queensland Teacher" was read by Mr J J Dempsey, of Junction Park State School. He traced the efforts of the Queensland authorities to secure a supply of teachers, bcginning with the pupil teacher system in the sixties. He drew a graphic picture of the difficulties of the old Board of Education and dwelt in glowing terms on the lasting effect of the work and influence ot Messrs. Anderson Evvart, Kerr, and Platt, in raising the status and tone of our schools and education service. The in-coming of the British trained teachers had had far-reaching effects on the life and aims of the service. Through them the influence of the professors and training masters of Great Bntain were now felt in the remotest parts of Queensland. The total abolition of the staff assistant had deprived Queensland of an admirable stamp of teacher and a mistake had been made in drawing away the best blood of our schools by scholarships to the secondary schools, whence they never returned to work in the primary schools. The time was ripe for a new departure. The secondary schools should be the main, if not the only door of entrance to the teaching profession, and the indispensable preparation for the work should be performed properly by means of the Training College and the University.

    STATE SCHOOLS' SWIMMING ASSOCIATION. The annual meeting of the Schools' Swimming Association was held in the Y.M.C.A. Building last night. There was a large attendance, including Messrs. Cunningham (New Farm), Johnston (Kangaroo Point), Dempsey (Junction Park), Warren (Leiehhardt-street), and Briggs (South Brisbane). Mr. J. D. Story (president) occupied the chair. The annual report showed that the association, had had a very satisfactory year, and that a large number of children had been taught to swim. It was determined to change the name of the association to the " State Schools' Swimming Association," or to confine the association, to children attending State schools only. It had been found in the past that when all the schools were admitted the championships and prizes were carried off by boys attending the higher schools, and this had proved discouraging to the children, be longing to the State schools. It waa decided that an effort should be made to secure special concessions for school children in the war of prices of admission to the baths. Special concessions were given at South Brisbane, but it was stated that this did not exist in the other baths. It was reported that more schools were joining the association, and there was every prospect for a very successful year. It was decided to work in conjunction with the Life Saving Association. It was resolved to draw up rules for the association. Previously there were no roles, but in view of the fact that matters were working well it was considered necesaaty to have rules. The election of officers resulted :-Patron, the Minister for Education ; president, Mr. J. D. Story ; vice presidents, the Inspector-General of Schools, the Mavors of North and.South Brisbane, the Metropolitan Inspectors of Schools, and the Metropolitan Head Teachers ; chairman of committees, Of. -James Gafsden : secretary, Mr. A. Griffiths.

The second annual rifle meeting of the metropolitan division of the Commonwealth Military Cadet Corps waa commenced on the Enoggera range yesterday with the B and C Series of matches.

    SCHOOL SWIMMING POOL. AN IMPORTANT INNOVATION.
    SPEECH BY THE MINISTER.
    The first swimming pool in conjunction with Queensland State schools was opened under the happiest auspices by the Minister for Public Instruction (Hon. W. H. Barnes) at Junction Park on Saturday. The Minister was accompanied by Mrs. Barnes, Mr. J. D. Story . Under-Secretary), Mr. R. H. Roe (Inspector-General), and Inspector and Mrs. Shirley. Seated also on the dais were Mr. J. J. Dempsey (head master of the school), Mrs. Dempsey, and the following members of the committee : Messrs. Down (secretary), W. R. Juster, P. Marshall, Wadley, G. A. Bayard, Aleclames Down, Jitter, Marshall, Wndley, and Bayard. Apologies were received from Alderman J. Allen, Rev. W. Little, Mr. A. Midson, and others. After dainty afternoon tea was served, an inspection of the swimming pool was made by the Minister and patty, and a number of speeches were delivered.

    The Minister expressed his pleasure at being asked to perform so interesting a ceremony. He regretted exceedingly the unavoidable absence of the chairman of the school committee (Hon. D. F. Denham), who asked the Minister to convey his best wishes and deep regret. He noticed that this was the majority day of the school under the present head master, and in looking over figures he noted the wonderful progress of the school. There was a good enrolment of 700 and a magnificent average attendance of 645. This showed that the head master was heart and soul in the progress of the school, and also reflected credit on teachers, parents, and scholars. He also noticed that a former pupil had designed tlhe pool, and an energetic committee of practical men had supervised its erection. He noticed also with pleasure that provision had been made to keep the baths free from anything objectable; and every svvimmer must have a shower bath before entering the pool. Mr. Barnes also paid a compliment to the lady helpers, and said he always recognised their work, even in an election campaign. The wife of the head master took the initiative, and it was a cose of all pulling together. This was the completion of a long cherished scheme of Mr. Dempsey's. and he congratulated every one on its success.

    At this juncture Master Harrison, in a brief speech, preferrod a request to the Minister that a whole or part holiday should be granted to the school today in commemoration'of its majority and the opening of the pool. This was granted.

    Mr. Story said that, as president of the State School Swimming Association, he was pleased to join in the general rejoicings at the opening of the swimming pool. As the Under Secrotary, he had some knowledge of the efforts of the committee. He would testify that they had an energetic committee and an energetic head master. The department had not contributed one penny towards die swimming pool, but it had contributed one half of the cost of a new playsheds, and he must add that he never saw a playshed put to more admirable use. It was usual tor the committees to contribute only one fifth of the cost of playsheds. He hoped children would be taught the means to restore the apparently drowned. He considered swimming pool training grounds for the navy and would be of great service in this connection, and he hoped that soon the ABC in swimming would be taught in all State schools. The number of children taught last year by the Slate was 300 boys and 100 girls, and this he considered an excellent start. Mr. R. H. Roe (Inspector-General) added his congratulations to those of the Minister and the Under Secretary, and said he regarded it as a magnificent portion of school nvork. Inspector Shirley also expressed his appreciation of the work accomplished, both in the school and in the grounds. In the latter connection he said that Mr, Dempsey's example had a beneficial effect on the district. Mr. J. J. Dempsey, head master of the schcol, acknowledged his appreciation of all the kind things said of him, and his indebtedness to all those who had helped towards the realisation of his long cherished scheme. It was an object-lesson in cooperation-committee, teachers, and parents. He paid a tribute to the Hon. D. F. Denham (cliairman of the school committee), to Mr. Stephens, the first chairman, and to Mr. Joseph Allen. He said every pupil would be taught to swim and how to save life. The pool, he continued, was an imitation of the one in the Y.M.C.A. Building. The funds were raised in one year. Though slightly over the amount available had been spent, he was sure the small debt would be liquidated in a month. A vote of thanks was passed with acclamation to the Minister, the under Secretary, and other visitors, and suitably acknowledged. Those present included Miss Denham. Mr. and Mrs. J. S. Kerr, Mr. and Mrs. J. E. Jones, Mr. and Mrs. W. Bevington, Mr. and Airs. Briggs, Mr. and Airs. Bradshaw, Mr. and Mrs. Jas. Wilson. Air. and Mrs. G. Simpson, Mr. and Mrs. G. K.

Amongst his items were ' Intermezzo ' (Mascagni), and 'Zigeuner AVeisc" (Boehm), "Graceful Dance" (Cave), and ' Minuet ' (Mozart), in all of which he displayed facile execution, good bowing, and correct intonaton. Sirs James Wilson contributed Borne nicely sung ballads, and variety was lent by recitations from Miss Walden, a clever ventrlloquial item by Mr B V, Pike character sketches by Mr. J J Dcmpsey, and musical comedies from Mr D Mackay, all of which were well received, as also a vocal number by Mr J AV M Culloch.

    EDUCATION IN QUEENSLAND.

    SOUTH AUSTRALIAN COMMISSION'S INVESTIGATIONS.
    AN INTERESTING INTERVIEW.
    "What I would like to say about your school is this: "We have seen nothing in your school arrangements which we would like to have altered," was the high tribute to Queensland's educational system paid by Mr. T. Ryan, the chauman of the South Australian Royal Commission on Higher Education, yesterday atternoon in the course ot an interview. This remark came after Mr. Ryan had been giving his impression of the visits paid by the Commission to various schools in the metrpolois during the day. He told first ot their visit to the Junction Park School. They had seen the boys at work, heard the lessons being taught, and examined the books used to teach them. They had also seen the boys in their fine swimming pool, and were given an exhibition of life saving. And at the end of their visit they could say nothing more than that they were absolutely delighted with what they had seen at the school. Sir. Dempsey, the head teacher, had been very kind, and they had a good time.

    Thence they went to the East Brisbane. State School, where the head teacher (Lieutenant-Colonel Halstead) had introduced them to the various members of the staff, and given them an interesting insight into the teaching methods. This time the Minister for Education and other members of the Commission briefly addressed the children. They also made a request to let the children have a holiday in honour of the party's visit, and as a result, the school was to be given a holiday on the Tuesday of Easter week

    Coronation Celebrations. About 40 persons were present at the meeting convened in the South Brisbane Town Hall last evening for the purpose of further considering arrangements for the children's festival to be held at the Brisbane Cricket Oriound on June 23 in connection with the Coronation celebrations The Major of South Brisbane (Alderman A Gillespie) presided, and others present included Aldermen G A Savage, j Downe, and Neylan Mr Cr W Bennett (secretary), and numerous representatives of various State schools on the south side of the river An apology for absence was received from Alderman Allen. A letter, from the Junction Park State School intimated that owing to distance difficulties it had been decided, not to participate in the combined function but that arrangements were being made for local celebrations. In response to requests it was agreed to allow the Dunellan and Rocklea schools to take part in the festival Mr Bennett suggested that the Coronation medals and post cards be presented to the children in the various schools two or three day's prior to June 23, so that all who attended the function might be enabled to wear the medals, and tlhat those who could not be present would at any rate, be sure to receive the mementoes . A motion to this effect was carried Lieutenant-Colonel Halstead was unanimously appointed to act as marshal of the children. The report of the sub committee the details of which have aiready been published in the "Courier," was received and adopted including a recommendation that there be an additional grant towards the prize fund, with a view to promoting interschool competitions. After a number of minor matters had been discussed the meeting was adjourned till June 14.
    Edmund Gregory, writes Sir,-Presuming that a part of this function will be the providing of come sort of refreshment for the little folks, it not infrequently happens that the arrangements for distributing such too often mar the whole proceedings, a thing which might be avoided by a little forethought. Let me suggest the following as a solution of a possible difficultv- I am, of course supposing then, will be a general gathering in some one place -It ought not to be difficult to ascertain the number to be present-, in which case, instead of distributing the refreshments promiscuously, nothing could bo simpler than to place a few sandwiches, a bathbun, and an apple orange banana or some other fruit in a paper bag, which could thus be easily distributed without waste or being subjected to too much exposure, and without confusion.

    THE CORONATION. FESTIVITIES IN BRISBANE. THE DAY'S ARRANGEMENTS. The Coronation of King George and Queen Mary will be performed with stately ceremonial to-day in Westminster Abbey amid the rejoicings of a nation. Through the wide, free States of the Commonwealth the feeling of pride 'and jubilation in the joyful and august event will be strikingly manifested, and Queensland, most favoured of States, will not be behind- hand in celebrating worthily the crowning of a nation's monarchs. -The State Government, the City of Brisbane and her people, recognising the historic importance of the occasion have planned the festivities on broad, dignified lines, in which the dominant notes will be rejoicing and thanksgiving. …
    In addition to the festivities in the city proper, there will be celebrations in various suburbs. Bulimba, for instance, the public are invited to the State School, where the children will be addressed by the Minister for Public Works (Hon W H Barnes), and where there will be tree planting, sports, and a distribution of Coronation medals. There will be a some what similar function at the Junction Park State School, where Mr Barnes will attend at 2.30 pm. to open the new infant school, and where the children will be feted and a ceremony of tree-planting be performed. At Sandgate a children's procession and fete will be held, with sports, and prizes and refreshments for the children.

    Social Duties of Public Men. It is undeniable that our public men are given very little rest in these stirring times. While even one else is rejoicing at the event of the Coronation, and enjoying the sights, the feasts, and the amusements accompanying it, the leaders in State and local government must be having a very toilsome time. As an instance, the State Treasurer on Thursday, paid a visit to the school festivities at Bulimba, whence he went by motor car to Hemmant, Wynnum and Junction Park, in succession, finishing up the day at Coorparoo. At each place he addressed the children and visitors suitable to the occasion, and planted a ' Coronation tree, ' and at one of the schools he opened a new schoolroom is well. The Hon. D F Denham (State Premier) in addition to attending the Governor's levee, was at the Coronation celebrations at Yeronga School and at Junction Park School. At the latter he conducted a party of friends over the new infant school, and evinced a hearty interest in the day's proceeding, besides inspecting all the improvements lately completed. Thence he travelled to the citizens' service at the Exhibition Grounds, and attended the fireworks as a wind up to a very full day. There would appeal to be some truth in a remark made to a Queenslander by one of the Scottish Commissioners "You seem to kill off your public men very rapidly here " As Lord Chelmsford said on one occasion: "It may soon become imperative to pass an Act providing a close season for Governors and public men.

    AMONG THE CHÍLDREN
    JUNCTION PARK SCHOOL.
    Yesterday was a great gala day in the annals of the Junction Park State School, not only by reason of the children's Coronation celebration, but also because it marked the opening of the infants' schoolroom, which had just been completed. Probably never before has Buch a large crowd of happy picnickers gathered in these roomy school grounds the children present-the majority, of course, being Junction Park scholars-numbered nearly 1000. Past scholars turned out in big numbers, and there was a proportionately large gathering of parents and friends. Without doubt, all parties spent on enjoyable and memorable day. The gates were opened at 11 a m. Before noon there was a big gathering of children, aud lunch was served to them. From 12 3O pm to 2 p m the scholars heartily indulged in a comprehensive sports programme, which was put through without a hitch, and subsequently a lengthy programme of a simular nature was provided for past scholars. After a fine display of physical drill had been given by the combined scholars, the latter, all wearing Coronation medals, were drawn, up, in charge of their teachers, in front of the new building, and, in the presence of numerous visitors, the Hon. W H Barnes (State Treasurer and Minister for Works), who was accompanied by Mrs Barnes, officially declared the new schoolroom opened. In doing so, he expressed his pleasure at the generous and enthusiastic manner in which the parents had contributed to the cost, and his admiration at the result of the work. The school was to be congratulated, he said, on having such a valuable master as Mr J J. Dempsey, who always entered so enthusiastically in everything he did. Refernng to the important connection which the Premier had shown in the school in the past, he suggested that the new building should be christened the Denham School. In connection with the Coronation celebrations, Mr Barnes impressed upon his young hearers the value of loyalty and patriotism, urging them to love their country always. He also reminded them that they could be kings and queens in their own homes by being bright and happy, and helping others to be so. In conclusion he promised the children, in response to a unanimous vote of the little ones themselves, a whole holiday be next Friday. The Minister called for cheers for the King and Queen, which were given with vigorous enthusiasm. Cheers were also given for Mr and Mrs Barnes, Mr Dempsey, and others. After the massed children had sung the National Anthem Messrs E Dean (secretary of the committee) and Dempsey briefly addressed the gathering after which the children were dismissed to continue their games. About midday the Hon D F Denham (Premier) arrived with a party, with whom be was shown over the new infant school and the swimming bath. The visistors expressed admiration for the design and appearance of the building and its equipment. Mr Denham expressed his regret that he was unable to remain for the afternoon, as he had to leave at 2 o'clock for the Exhibition Grounds. Advantage was taken of the occasion to observe an Arbor Day, and among the trees planted were two weeping figs, two hill tigs, two Cunningham figs, three silver wattles (presented by P Airey, Esq ), and the " Coronation tree" (a healthy Poinciana Regio), the last named being planted by the Hon W H Barnes. The fourth class pupils planted a hedge, fronting the school quadrangle, and the work of tree planting is to be continued next Monday. The pretties sight of the day was a very effectue display of physical drill by 600 pupils, under the direction of Mr. I. Diminock, senior assistant teacher. The movements were executed with vim and precision, and the picture, framed by the crowds of parents, past pupils and visitors was an inspiring one. The sports programme was carried on with spirit throughout the day and concluded with a fancy dress football match, which evoked roars of laughter. Everybody concerned worked with a will for the great success achieved, and the teachers especially deserved the additional holiday, on June 30, granted to the school by the Hon. W H Barnes

    Premier's Address to Cadets. A parade of about 120 cadets represent mg a portion of the force enrolled for training area 9A was held at the June tion Park btate behool on baturday after noon when an address was delivered bv the Premier (Hon D T Denham). The troops were commanded by Captain Benjamin (area officer) and Captain F M Page (Bugade Major 3rd Brigade) was also present staff Sergeant-major Howley was in attendance, and among the visitors were Mr E G E Serivan (Under secretary for Agriculture) Councillor M Cosker and Mr T J Dempsey (head master of the Junction school). The Premier said that although it was the first Saturday afternoon he had had free for a very long time and he had earmaked it for a quiet, simplo game of bowls, he had esteemed it a privilege a pleasure and a duty to accede to their officer's request that he should address them. Although the matter of defence was directly under the control of the Commonwealth Government there were numerous questions in connection with the forces which came under the official notice of the State Ministry, and he had always felt and would continue to feel it a special duty to do everything possible to facilitate this great national movement. He was very glad therefore that the Minister for Public Instruction had consented to them use of the school grounds at Junction Park for their parades and drills and had placed a room at the disposal of their officer. In this respect they hod been more fortunate than in many of the other brigades, which were to be seen drilling by the roadside. He warned them that they should be careful lest they abused their rights and privileges in the use of the grounds and advised them not to loiter about the school premises and reserve, but to leave the place when then drills were over. Were they to infringe on the departments concession it was, of course, possible that the Minister would say that the grounds were no longer at their disposal. The great system of defence winch they were helping to build up was as one with which the entire people of Australia were in full accord. It was not a movement of momentary or passing importance. It was a settled policy and a confirmed pnnciple based on lines laid down by one of Britain's greatest and best soldiers-Lord Kitchener. It must and should have the fullest support of both the boys and their parents. He believed that before many years had passed the Australian system would be adopted in the motherland. He urged the lads to make the most of and not to abuse their opportunities for attaining proficiency in military work which would be of benefit to both themselves and the nation. Their training would serve to inculcate the virtues of promptness, obedience, discipline and also that spirit of camaraderie which would enable them and the nation as a whole to work effectively and harmomously. Let them, as one small unit in the scheme, carry out their operations with enthusiasm and diligence This would in turn assist towards the establishment throughout Australia of a magnificent state of efficiency and allow of the entire nation combining in time of stress and acting concertedly as one vast military unit. Duty to their country must be their first consideration. A great turning point in Britain's history was Trafalgar- Nelson counselled his men that "England this day expects every man do his duty," and it was because every man obeyed that injunction that the Empire's greatness was assured. And so also, Australia expected every man and every boy to do his duty. A number of evolutions were gone through by the cadets, who, together with Captain Benjamin, were heartily complimented by Mr. Denham.

    MIDSUMMER VACATIONFix this text I JUNCTION PARK SCHOOL. On Saturday afternoon last the chairman of the school committee Hon. D. F. Denham distributed over 100 annual and special prizes to the pupils of the Junction State School. The play room in the basement were utilised for the purpose, and therewas a large and representative gathering of parents and Friends.
    The Premier, who was accompanied by Mrs. Denham,- was particularly happy in his address and his remarks to the children. He referred to the long connection with the school as chairman of its committee, a school attended by his own children. and alluded to the long continued harmonious co-operation of the committees and the teaching staff in devising and bringing to a practical issue schemes for the betterment of the school. Starting from an enrolment of 60 pupils taught in a small cottage, the school had grown in a little over 23 years to one of over 800 children, for whom the Education Depattment had provided a staff of 23 teachers. He reviewed the work of the committee for the year now closing, and characterised it as a year of successful effort, due to the co-operation of parents with the committee and staff. Their year's programme had included the purchase of a piano for the infant section, a caretaker's cottage, and the addition of a quarter acre to the infant's playground. He had been pleased to see the flag of the Empire flying from the fine flag staff presented by their neighbour, Mr. G. R. Flay; and he noted also the action of the past pupils in providing a second tennis court in the grounds. The projected addition to the infants' dopartment was hung up for the present, as the Depnrt'mont of Public Instruction was attending first to the wants of country districts, which were in most cases of an urgent kind. Town schools therefore had to wait. Reverting to the more immediate business of the afternoon, he was pleased to see that residents had provided liberally in special and ordinary prizes, which he now proceeded to hand to the winners. The John Fowles memorial medal for the best year's work was won for the third year in succession by Mary Marshall (VI). A similar medal, presented by Mr. V. Airey, for competition in the middle school, was awarded to Ena Morris (IV). The chairman's prizes, awarded on the vote of the pupils each year, went to Vera Day and Henry Woldsen. For the best attendance record special prizes were given to Vida Nissen and Hary Clark, who have attended every day for eight years; to May Wallace and Amelia Kenny for seven years; Alice Love and Nellie Wallace for six years, and to Vrea Neil, Elsie Binden, Ethel White, Myrtle White, and Sam Kenny for five full vears attendance. In all, £1 had made the full year in 1912. But for epidemics that number would probaby have been trebled. Four beautiful dressed dolls, presented by Mr. W. R. Juster, were given as first prices in four junior classes, and these were won by Doris Rasmussen, Vera Nairn, Nettie Wardlow and Florence Johnston. After the prizes had been distributed the senior scholars gave a display of physical exercises during which afternoon tea was handed round to the visitors. Mr. Denham announced that he would see the school had a special holiday on Friday 13th inst. and he concluded by wishing teachers and scholars an enjoyable vacation.

    SOUTH SIDE WANTS. TO THE EDITOR. Sir,—The above are numerous: please afford me a little space to state two of them.
    1. We want a general hospital for South Brisbane, or a branch of the ex- isting General Hospital in our midst. At present, it costs half a day's work, and a shilling in fares, to visit a sick person in the General Hospital, or to take a patient there. There are now fully 40,- 000 citizens of Greater Brisbane living on the South Side of Victoria Bridge. All Brisbane had about half that number when "the General" was built, and South Brisbane had a few hundred. And why should we pay this outrageous tax? I say the time is ripe for establishing, and contributing to, our own hospital. There is an excellent site at Diamantina. A hospital for chronic cases ought not to exist in the midst of the swarming population of the Thompson and neighbouring Estates. It should be a few miles out along the Southport or Cleveland railway line. I cannot, think why our Health Department allows it to remain where it is.
    2. Like the Brisbane and South Brisbane Councils, the Stephens Shire needs to be on the alert about public parks and reserves. Just think of it—not an inch of public reserve from Fiveways to Yeronga Park. What will be the state of things ten years hence, with not a spare allotment, anywhere on Thompson, Dunellan, City View, Junction Park, St. Kilda, Collins, Waterton, or Ferndale Estates, or Annerley ; not an inch of land for recreation? Those estates will carry a total population of over 10,000—probably 15,000, when fully built on. I venture to suggest that the local council should acquire the old Ekibin rifle range, or part of it, before it is subdivided, and convert it into a public park. It is used in that way now by the indulgence of the owners; but where shall we be when it is cut up ? Why, sire, there will be no room anywhere in a 600-acre suburb to play a game of cricket or football. Our playing grounds are rapidly disappearing even now.—I am, sir,

    CARNIVAL OF NATIONS.
    IDEAL CONDITIONS.
    A BRILLIANT SPECTACLE.
    No finer holiday conditions could have been wished for than those which prevailed for the long postponed and eagerly-looked-for Carnival of Nations, arranged by the National Council of Women, which took place on the Brisbane Cricket Ground on Saturday. The sky was innocent of a cloud and the brilliant sunshine was tempered by a gentle breeze which besides relieving the afternoon of a suspicion of sultriness, gave that flutter of the ribbon that wave of the plume, and that ripple of the loose part of the gaily coloured robes which added a perfecting touch of animation to a happy and animated scene. It was essentially a children's affair, but interest in it was not confined to children alone, and although the juvenile members of the community largely predominated both young and old of all classes flocked in thousands to the grounds, and when a youthful company of naval cadets from the Brisbane Institute of Social Service, under Chief Instructor E. Widdup, marched on to the grounds to open the carnival by a display of drill the spectators numbered fully 8000. Among those present were Sir Arthur Morgan, Sir Arthur and Lady Rutledge, Sir Pope A. Cooper and the. Hon D. F. Denham. During the afternoon, Madame Clara Butt and Mr Kennerley Rumford paid a visit to the grounds, and expressed their surprise and pleasure at such a fine display being made by Queensland children. An interesting item was a Maypole dance by girls of the Ever Onward Rechabite Trippers. A Maypole surmounted by an immense crown was erected, and around this they danced the stately old English folk dance, which embodies the very spirit of the holiday. The little performers looked very pretty in white dresses with coloured sashes and decked with yellow blossoms. An exhibition of physical exercises was given by the Norman Park Company of the 8th battalion of Senior Cadets, the champion team of Queensland. Then came a Morris dance by the young pupils of the Girls' High School, and a display of physical training by a number of older scholars of the school.

    The principal event, the procession of the nations, commenced at about 4 o'clock and formed a brilliant and magnificent spectacle. Preceded by the Earl Marshal (Mr Reg Woodhouse), in Court costume and long royal blue cloak supported by a page, the procession moved with slow and stately motion into the arena, from the far side of the ground. Following the Earl Marshal walked the Queen of Peace, richly attired and bearing the crown and sceptre, with her attendant ladies carrying the palms of peace and clad in loose flowing robes, Britannia, with shield, triple folk, and helmet marched next in order. Attending her on either side marched two stout yeomen and bearing her royal blue train were five pretty little mermaids emblematic of her supremacy on the sea. One after another the nations filed in to the strains of their respective anthems or national music, and as they filed past the throne of the Queen of Peace, placed opposite the centre of the grand stand, the leader of each national body received a palm from one of the queen's attendants, England, Wales, Scotland, Ireland, Switzerland, Sweden, Burma, Canada, Italy, United States, Roumania, Germany, Spain, Belgium, China, France, Paraguay, Holland, Austria, Russia, Norway, Turkey, India, Japan, Portugal, Argentina, Denmark, Zealand, Cuba, Servia and the various States of the Australasian Commonwealth, were all represented in the brilliant throng. After making the circuit of the ground the representatives of the various nations formed in groups in the centre where they spread out in the shape of a gigantic crown, making the entire ground a mass of bright colours.

    A SCHOOL STORY TOLD BY THE GOYERNOR,
    CEREMONY AT JUNCTION PARK.
    THE AMERICAN ENDOWMENT SYSTEM.
    Past and present scholars of the Junction Park State School with their friends and relatives made a brave display at the Junction Park State School on Saturday afternoon the occasion being the official opening by his Excellency tho Governor of an additional building for the accommodation of the infants classes. It was quite a red letter day for all concerned and careful inquiry into all that had led up to it enabled his Excellency to tell to those present a story of school development that was evidently as gratifying to his Excellency as to his hearers.

    Sir Wm MacGregor was accompanied by Lady MacGregor and Miss Honor Paget and attended by Captain Foxton ADC. The Vice-regal party was welcomed on arrival by the Hon D F Denham (Premier of Queensland and chairman of the School Committee), Mrs Denham, the Hon W Stephens M L C, Mr J Stodart MLA, and the members of the School Committee comprising Messrs F Down (hon secretary), P Marshall (hon treasurer), G A Bayard, G Flay, I Dickson and W R Juster. A guard of honour was formed by the Senior Cadets of 9a Training Area under Captain Benjamin and the Excelsior Band played the National Anthem. His Excellency inspected the cadets and then, in company with the Premier and members of the committee, went ovcr the whole of the school buildings, the party being conducted by Mr J J Dempsey (head master). A visit was paid to the school swimming basin, where half a dozen scholars gave an interesting exhibition of life saving. The visitors afterwards assembled on the balcony of the new building, some hundreds of scholars and relatives being grouped in the picturesque grounds below and the opening ceremony was performed. The Premier welcomed his Excellency and Lady MacGregor on behalf of the committee the children and their parents. Mr Denham introduced to his Excellency the first scholar on the school roll in 1888 Mr Albert Peters who welcomed his Excellency and Lady MacGregor on behalf of the old scholars. Little Margaret Dempsey presented Lady MacGregor with a handsome bouquet. Mr Dempsey rend apologies and good wishes from the Hon J W Blair (Minister for Public Instruction), Mr Story (Under Secretary), the Hon W H Barnes (State Treasurer) and Dr J Shirley.

    Sir Wm MacGregor presented to the school a framed portrait of their Majesties King George and Queen Mary, and members of their family, setting out in homely phrase the significance of the gift, something of the relationship of sovereign and subject, and giving the children a peep into the domestic quailtie of the Queen and her children. The gift was received by two of the scholars -Miss Mary Marshall and Master George Leckie. All present joined in singing the National Anthem and three cheers were given for their Majesties. Mastcr Leckie, in admiraole manner and language thanked his Excellency, and on behalf of 800 loyal young Australians thanked their Majesties for the kindness and interest manifested towards Queensland and wished them health, strength and wisdom. Mi Lr Down (hon secretary of the School Committee) requested his Excellcncy to declare the new school building open and to name it the Denham Infant School (Applause ). His Excelleney said the occasion gave him considerable pleasure from the fact that the Junction Park State School was such a fine example of the remarkable progress made in the primary education of Queensland, thus giving an excellent index of the development of the State itself. He had learned that the school was first started by some of the district residents in 1888. The first school was a hired cottage which had accommodated three score of pupils. The only teacher was Mrs Barry who had carried on the work under difficulties until 1889. In that year the committee had neither land nor money, and as a final catastrophe the teacher resigned. Mr J J Dempsey their present head master was induced to take up tho work and had been with them ever since (Applause ). After some months the school was moved into what was known as the Regent street Hall where it remained for some 10 months. During that time the committee appeared to have been very busy for it raised subscriptions and obtained 5 acres of the land that formed the site of the present school. In this he had learned of one of the very few instances in Queensland where people had looked sufficiently far ahead. He had gathered that some at that time thought three quarters of an acre would be quite sufficient but the present gathering would realise what a huge mistake that would have been. It was in October 1890, just 28 years ago that the foundation stone of the new school was laid, and on the 31st of the following Match the teachers and children took possession with accommodation for 250 children But on the first day 450 pupils presented themselves. From one point of view that was very encouraging, but it meant that they had to busy themselves soon in getting more accommodation. In 22 years thereafter five additions had been made to the accommodation and now they were assembled to officially open the sixth, to be known as the Denham Infant School, making the whole establishment one of the finest in the State. The pupils had grown with the school for there was now an average daily attendance of 800 children with accommodation for 950, the attendance being 13 times as great as 25 yeais ago. The committee ,24 years ago, had neither land nor money and was in debt £35 .Now it had land buildings, and furniture of an estimated value of £6000 (Applause ). No doubt a great factor in this extraordinary dovelopment was to be found in the continuity of action and policy which had been observed. They had for 20 years had the one chairman of the School Committee-the Hon Digby F Denham-and Mr Wadley had been their treasurer for 16 years. There was the further fact that for 24,- years Mr Dempsey had been their head teacher. During that period he had been ably supported by Miss Brown, and for 10 years by Miss Mulveny. The broad and progressive spirit of the school was also manifested in its swimming basin, which in the four years of its existence, had turned out some 500 well trained swimmers and by their 70 guinea piano which must be a great delight to the pupils. Referring to the interior of the older school building his Excellency suggested that painting it a French grey would improve the lighting, and indicated the splendid ventilation and lighting of the new school room as evidence of the advance made in these matters of late years. Mention was made of the fact that the committee had been enabled to increase the school area to seven acres, and his Excellency said this caused him to turn with increasing admiration to the American system of land endowment for education. That system briefly was that since 1848 in each township in the United States, comprising 86 sections of land, each one mile square, two sections were set apart for the purpose of education. The total area this set apart had been 134,591 square miles or one and a half times the entire area of Victoria. A similar proportion in Queensland would give, in round figures, 29,000 square miles of country for educational purposes. When he saw the difficulties experienced in getting land and money for education, and the ever increasing appreciation of the advantages of education, he could imagine that the day might come when it would be found desirable to endow the schools of Australia on lines similar to those of the United States. In conclusion, his Excellency hoped they would continue to have the services of their old friends and officers for many years longer. He named and declared the school open, as requested (Continued applause ). Mr Denham informed those present that two of the eight gold medals presented hy the Chamber of Manufactures for the best essays on the recently celebrated "Manufacturers' Week" had been won by pupils of the Junction Park School-Miss May Tremlett Francis (first prize for girls), and Master George Leckie (first for boys, junior section). He would ask his Excellency to present the medals. Sir William MacGregor complied with the request amid furthrr cheers. A vote of thanks to his Excellency and Lady MacGregor was moved by Mr. Denham, seconded by Mr. J. Stodart, and carried by acclamation, the applause being re- doubled when his Excellency announced that Monday would be a special school holiday, in honour of the occasion. Mr. Dempsey delivered a brief address, thanking his Excellency and Lady MacGregor, and impressing upon the scholars something of the importance of all they had heard. "Never a sentence is lost," said Mr. Dempsey, as he, told of the inspiration he had himself received, when at the age of 8 years he had received a prize from the hands of the then Governor, Sir George Bowen, at the old Normal School. At the close of the ceremony afternoon tea was served to the visitors in the upstairs room of the Denham Infant School, and a sports programme for the children was decided in the grounds.

    At the opening of the new wing at the Junction Park School on Saturday after- noon his Excellency the Governor was received on arrival by the chairman of the School Committee (Hon. D. F. Denham), the head teacher (Mr J. J. Dempsey), and the members of the School Committee. After the opening ceremony a large number of guests were entertained on behalf of the committee. The upper room had been converted into a beautiful reception-room by Mesdames J. J Dempsey, E. Down, and G. Bayard, Miss Walker, and Mr. W.H. Clarkson, and here afternoon tea was served amid delightful surroundings. Conspicuous among the decorations was a superb col- lection of palms, kindly lent by Mr. C. Gamin. The vice-regal table was beautified with shaded sweet peas and maiden hair ferns in silver vases. There were also two small sprays of Scottish heather, tied with tiny bows of MacGregor tartan ribbon. The heather was received direct from Scotland, a few days ago, by a Scot- tish lassie—a pupil—who begged the privilege of presenting it for the occasion. On arrival Lady MacGregor was presented with a beautiful basket of roses by little Margaret Dempsey, the two a half year old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. J. Dempsey. Those present included, in ad- dition to the Vice-regal party, the Hon. and Mrs. D. F Denham, Hon. and Mrs. W. Stephens, Mr. and Mrs. J Stodart, Misses Stephens (2), Messrs. G. Curry, G. Walker, and Rev. Molesworth (members of former School Committees), Mrs. J. Shirley, Mr. and Miss Beet, Mr. and Mrs. J. J Dempsey, Mr. and Mrs. W. J.

Dickson, and Misses Williams (2), Mulveny, Huxley, and Reardon. An unusually large guard of honour of senior cadets, under Capt. Benjamin, received the Governor on his arrival, and at his departure the entrance road was lined on both sides by some 600 boys and girls.

The department has approved of the payment of the following fees for the tuition of the scholarship holders :— Males : First and second year, £12/12/ per annum; third year, £14/14/ per annum. Females: First and second year, £10/10/ per annum; third year, £12/12/ per annum.

The following is a list of the names of the successful candidates in order of merit:— . J. Leckey, Junction Park; May Tremlett Francis, Junction Park.

The gift of Mr Dempsey took the form of a magnificent case of cutlery suitablbly inscribed, while Miss Brown received a lady travelling case beautifully fitted and inscribed. Mr Barnes, to the at accompanment of cheers, made the presentations and referred to the yaluable services rendered during a quarter of a century by the guests of honour. He spoke of the pleasure it always gave him to come to Junction Park and of the influence wielded by the school in the building up of the State's manhood. He humorously took a vote on the question as to" How best to make this event remembered." Mr Stodart was called upon to declare the result and amid applause and cheers declared "A whole holiday on Friday next, " carried on the voices. Mr Dempsey in responding paid a tiibute to the many co-operators whose help was involved in the making of a successful school to the cheerful and loyal staff the enthusiastic committee, the generous public who supported their work, and the departmental officers who tried to give them the best facilities for carrying it out. He was glad that Miss Broun was associated with him in the event of that day as it testified to the important part placed by the assistant teachers in the conduct and work of the school. Furthermore the gift was one in which Mrs Dempsey would share and that earned with it appreciation of her encouraging influence in all his work. He traced the history of the school from January 1889, when it was first opened in a four roomed cottage. Since then every year has seen its growth, the regsiters to date showing that upwards of 5O0O had passed through the books. He closely watched the career of the young people on leaving school, and proudly claimed that none had ever been called upon by a magistrate to show cause for breaches of the country's laws. They were rearing good and law abiding citizens (Applause ).

    Mr J Campbell on behalf of Miss Brown thanked the donors for their gift. He took the opportunity to add his quota of praise to the influence of Miss Brown for good. Mr Stodart commended all concerned for the building up of this educational pile, the largest in his electorate. Mr J D Story bore testimony to the far-reaching influence of Mr Dempsey's work, and to tho estimation in which the school and its staff are held by the department. Even on that day he was in receipt of a letter from New South Wales concerning one of tho school's progressive measures. Cheers for the visitors and the guests of honour terminated the proceedings. The presentation committee (Medames F Carter, W Stephens, and E Down) generously entertained the teachers and visiting officials to a dainty afternoon tea.

    ADVANCED EDUCATION.
    VISIT OF AN EXPERT.
    By the R.M S Omrah, which reached Brisbane yesterday, there arrived Mr. F. Tate (Director of Education in Victoria), who is on a visit to this State with his daughter. Mr. Tate called on the Hon. J. W. Blair (Minister for Public Instruction) during the morning, and the visitors were later entertained at luncheon in the Botanic Gardens by Mr Blair. Mr. Tate's stay in Brisbane is necessarily short, as he is due back in Melbourne on Saturday. Mr. J. D. Story (Under Secretary), and Mr. R. H. Roe, M A. (Inspector-General), were amongst the Minister's guests at luncheon. The visitor was taken to the East Brisbane and Junction Park State Schools, by Mr. Story, and today he will visit one or two schools outside the metropolitan area. Questioned as to his impressions, Mr. Tate said he had been struck by the style of school building in Queensland, which is entirely different to those generally adopted in Victoria, and is evidently designed to allow of the benefits of open-air teaching being availed of to a most commendable extent. The need for fresh air was being realised in Victoria, where open-air pavilions was being used as adjuncts to the school buildings proper. Mr Tate was pleaded with the location of the schools visited, and referring to the swimming pool at Junction Park, he said this was a subject to which considerable attention was being directed in Victoria. Mr F Beaurepaire, the champion swimmer, is employed as an organiscr of swimming classes in a number of the boy's schools, and Miss May Cox does similar duty foi the girls Certificates for proficiency in swimming, diving, and life saving are issued by the Education Department, and last year some 10,000 junior certificates were issued. The swimming facilities arc largely provided by the municipalities, but in other cases the School Committees have raised funds, and constructed pools similar to that at Junction Park.

    The funeral of the late Mr. John Wadley, of Messrs. Denham Bros., who passed away at his residence, Grovelands, Crack- nell-road, on Saturday, took place on Monday afternoon. A short service was conducted by the Rev. E. Wilson (owing to the unavoidable absence of the pastor, Rev. W. G. Sands) at the Cracknell-road Congregational Church, of which Mr. Wadley was treasurer and a deacon. The church was tastefully draped by Mrs. Juster. The choir rendered suitable hymns, and the oiganist (Mr. G. Weston) played the "Dead March " whilst the coffin was being carried out by Messrs. H. J. Law, S. H. Walker, J. E. Pillinger, and W. J. Moss. At the conclusion of the service the cortege moved for the South Brisbane cemetery, and many followed to the grave- side, where the Rev. E. Wilson impressively conducted the service.

    The photo of the Junction Park State School Honour Board is particularly interesting. The original or foundation board contained 40 names. It was unveiled on Empire Day with 25 names on it-names of past scholars who had gone to the war These soon grew to 34 names. For Wattle Day was added the fortieth name, and the girls decorated the board with flags and wattle flowers. A lantern slide of the "board" was shown every Saturday night at the local picture shows. Soon the numbers grew to 86, as shown on our photo. But today the board is full, with 96 names on it, and there are four more, bringing the record up to 100. In May or June last the head teacher (Mr J J Dempsey) sent one of the post card photos to the Minister for Public Instruction, and Mr. Hardacre decided to provide an "honour board" for any school requiring one. A week ago a local newsagent borrowed the board and exhibited it in his window for a few days. Large numbers perused it.

    BREAKFAST AT JUNCTION PARK SCHOOL. There was a simmer of excitement around Junction Park yesterday morning. Multi-coloured flags fluttered gently in the light morning breeze, and eager expectant crowds ot adults and school children were in waiting. About 8.40 the steady beat of the drums and the strains of "Soldiers of the King" by a brass band signalised tho approach of the "Dun- garees," who, escorted by cadets, military band, and school children, the latter carrying flags, formed a picturesque sight as they moved down the tree-lined road- way. In the van were four-khaki-clad horse- men. Then came the Toowong Citizens' Band, which had met the men at Moorooka. It was followed by A Coy, Junction Park Cadets, over 100 strong, in charge of Lieuts, B. Benjamin, R. Bayard, and Staff Sergeant-major J. Hepburn. Next came the military band from Bell's Paddock under charge of Bandmaster J. T. Caves, which had joined the march at Oxley the previous day. The "Dungarees," in grey dungarees and white hats, with' khaki armlets, haversacks and water bottles, and the useful tin pannikin, made a fine show. They carried three banners, one (bearing the words, "We are from Stanthorpe, come and join us," another the motto, "Remember our martyred nurse, Miss Cavell," and the third, the lettering,-"Come on, Australia, Coo-ee, Coo-ee," and "We are doing our duty, will you do yours ? " A large detachment of school children brought up the rear, and many more children, were lined up on the way to the school, where the men were heartily acclaimed on their arrival, and entertained by the Stephens Shire Council and the residents, about 70 Red Cross ladies waiting at the table, where they were unremitting in their attention to the men. After the Royal toast had been honoured. Councillor W. R. Juster (Chairman of Stephens Shire Council) welcomed the men. He said he was sure every man in the "Dungarees" would uphold tin; traditions and the honour which their comrades on the field of battle bad set up. He hoped God would bless them and give them a safe return. (Applause and a soldier's voice-" We all have return, tickets, and we are 'all right''-a remark which was loudly cheered.) Hon. D. F. Denham welcomed the men on this, the first stage of their long march to Constantinople. (Applause.)! They had no manner of doubt as to their courage and valour, but courage and valour alone were not all that were required at Gallipoli. Camp life was essential that they might be qualified to take their places with the soldiers of the King from all parts of the Empire, and he was satisfied that the men would devote themselves sedulously and earnestly to the training in camp, so that they might quit themselves like men when their trying hour came. (Applause.) , Hon. W. Stephens, M.L.O., congratulated the men on volunteering, and wished them all sorts of luck and a safe return. Colonel Lee returned thanks on be- half of the men, and said the thanks of all the men at Enoggera and those connected with the recruiting movement were due to those who had taken such good care of the men. Lieutenant Binnia also returned thanks. Chaplain Lieutenant-Colonel Garland, on behalf of the Recruiting Executive, thanked the Stephens Shire Council for, its response to the call to, entertain the men. He mentioned that the number entering Brisbane would be 135, but that did not represent the full result of the march, as other men were entering the camps independently, while he knew of groups of 16 and smaller groups who were enlisting as a result of the march. The march was resumed at 10 o'clock and along the route to the Fiveways, which was reached at 10.30, the men were heartily cheered.

    UNIVERSAL SERVICE.
    MEETING AT JUNCTION PARK
    A meeting for the purpose of advocating the introduction of universal military service was held last night in the Junction Park Picture Garden, and was well attended. Mr. Peter Airey presided. The programme was opened by the exhibition of a number of patriotic slides and films. The Chairman, after referring sympathetically to the death of a district resident on active service, said he would like to ask those present if it was fair that the sacrifice should fall on the few. It was not fair, and it was because of this unfairness that the gentlemen who would speak later had thrown in their lot against it. Universal service did not mean that everybody would have to go to the war, but that, instead of the present haphazard method by which the country's best mon were sent away, every man between the ages of 19 and 60 would be classified according to how he could best serve. The Prime Minister had said that he was about to take a course in which he believed he would be supported by 90 per cent, of the people of Australia. If he was going to take such a course he (the speaker) believed that he would lose no time in instituting compulsory service. Recently Mr. Finlayson, M.H.R., had made a speech in which he warned the public to beware of returned soldiers. Had it not been for the thousands of conscripts fighting in France and Russia Mr. Finlayson would not have been able to to have made this speech.
    Mr. D. F. Denham said that now, after two years of the most deadly conflict the world thad ever known, the cry was: "How long, oh Lord, how long ?" How long the war would last depended on the supply of men and munitions. Germany had for many years laid up large stores of munitions, and built up huge armies, and the fact that she was able to lay waste and ravage Belgium and Northern France was due to England's unpreparcdness. At the conclusion of the Boar War, Lord Roberts had conducted a campaign to wake up the people to what he considered the inevitable conflict, but a deaf ear had been turned to his warnings. Had this not been so victory would long ago have been Britain. It was the Navy alone which was ready, and the Navy which had saved the situation. The wastage of war was great, and volunteers were not coming forward in sufficient numbers to make it up. England, after trying the Avolumtary system, had recognised that the only thins to be done was to call up every available man in the country, and the object of the present meeting was to advocate that this be done in Australia. A campaign against universal service had been started, and it was up to everybody to let Mr. Hughes see that public feeling was in favour of conscription. Tho voluntary system was unfair, for awhile one section of Ihe people was making sacrifices, another section was making none at all. Conscription did not mean that every man would have to go to thr trenches, for some could serve better at home. Already there was a law on the Federal Statute Books establishing compulsory military service within the country, and for its defence. At the present time, Australia was being defended on the battlefields of France and Russia, and all that was asked was that this word "within" be changed to "beyond." Soma were howling against military service. If Germany won these men would have no choice. They would be conscripts -and conscripts for the Hun.
    A Voice: Slavery.
    Mr. Denham: It ,has been said that universal service is slavery. Has it led to slavery in England, France, or Switzerland ? Even a great democratic country like the United States has at one time been forced to adopt conscription. Then it had a great man at the helm, and I -believe that now Mr. Hughes, like President Lincoln, sees what his duty is, and will do it. Mr. Denham then moved the following motion:-"That this meeting endorses the principle of universal service, and will do its utmost to bring it, about at the earliest moment."
    Mr. K. M. Grant, in supporting tho motion, said that some-Mr. Finlayson among them-had preached that conscription was undemocratic. There could be nothing more absurd than this, for it put the rich man's son on no higher a plane than, the poor man's son.
    The Hon. A. A. Davey, M.L.C., also supported the motion: He said that there was a crying necessity for universal service. There were only two ways by which the war could be brought to a victorious termination. One of them was a sweeping victory by the Allies, but before it could he brought about more enthusiasm would have to be thrown in. More men were needed, and it was hard to see what objection a man living in a free country and physically fit could possibly have to serving. He felt sure that if the men of Australia could only be shown the real position the difficulty would be, not in getting them to como forward, but in receiving those who would spring forward at the call. The Chairman then put the motion, which was carried unanimously.

    STEPHENS SHIRE FÊTE
    OPENED BY THE GOVERNOR.
    In May of this year a desire to do something to assist the defenders of the Empire led to the formation of the Stephens Shire Soldiers' Entertanment and Help Society. On Saturday the society gathered funds for the work by means of a fete held in the Junction Park State Schcol grounds. The residents of the shire attended in large numbers, and many stalls scattered about the grounds provided divers channels through which to contribute their money to the good cause. There were sales of work, fancy goods, and refreshment stalls, shooting galleries, Aunt Sallies, a garden stall conducted by the Stephens Horticultural Society, a display of work by the Stephens Shire Men's Red Cross Auxiliary, and other attractions. At the close of the fete considerably more than £ 200 was in hand, and it is expected that when the accounts are closed £300 net will be added to the fund. His Excellency the Governor and Lady Gould-Adams were present, attended by Captain Cosens. The Vice-regal party was welcomed by the executive officers of the society, including Councillor F. A. Stimpson (chairman), Messrs. A. Claik (hon, sec), J. J. Corrigan (assistant hon, sec), J. J. Dempsey (hon. treas.), Mrs. Stimpson (president of the Women's Committee), and Mrs. Hector Reid (hon. secretary of the Women's Committee). His Excellency was received by a guard ot honour, composed of Area 9A Cadets, under Lieutenant Drew. A party of 300 school children was also drawn up to welcome his Excellency end Lady Goold-Adams. The children were from Junction Park School under Mr. J. J. Dempsey, Yeronga School under Mr. C. R. Morton, Dunellan School under Mr. J. Crellin, and Mt. Gravatt School under Mr. A. T. Jackson. Councillor Stimpson asked His Excellency to declare the fete open, and welcomed Sir Hamilton and Lady Goold-Adams to the shire. The objects of their society, he said, were to give a fitting farevvell to the men of the district when they were leaving for the Front, to welcome them on their rcturn, and to assist them in such a way as might be necessary, such as securing employment. Each one was provided with a small silver insignia of the shire on leaving, and an illuminated address on returning. Stephens Shire had responded well to the call for men, a total of 369 having enlisted, or 12 more than the q'uota estimated on a population basis. Had other districts done so well the war would, he thought, be nearer an end. (Applause.) His Excellency said Lady Goold-Adams and he were glad to show their sympathy with the objects of the society. They were in sympathy with every movement that meant support to the men in the tenches and help for them on their return. He had been struck by the enormous amount of energy displayed in successfully carrying out functions such as this, particularly by the ladies. He had read reports of a discussion by the National Council of Women as to the best means of utilising the services of women in this crisis, and he hoped a suitable outlet would be found for it. He had taken various opportunities of urging local committees, municipal and shire councils, to render organised aid in the work of repatriation. To the council of the shire in which he lived he had offered £100, in case they secured another £200, to be spent in preparing ground for returned soldiers'. The War Council had written in thanks stating that the offer was already bearing fruit, and as a result many pieces of land, which had previously been lost sight of, were being recommended for settlement. He had undertaken in South Africa a big scheme of land settlement for soldiers after the Boer War, and from his experience there he would urge them to hold out the hand of friendship to any soldiers who with their wives might settle amongst them, particularly those from the Old Land. In closing his Excellency gave a holiday to the children of the four schools represented at the gathering. (Applause.)
    Mrs. Stimpson handed to Lady Goold Adams an Australian flag, a present from the ladies of the committee. His Excellency called for three cheers for the flag, which were heartily given. At the invitation of Mr Denham, cheers were given for his Excellency and Lady Goold Adams. .A busy time was spent by the various stall holders, and a programme of sports provided entertainment for the children. During the afternoon his Excellency inspected the school swimming pool, and also the honour board, upon which there wore the names of over 200 former scholars of the Junction Park S:hool who have enlisted. His Excellency was interested in the portraits of four of these who fell at Gallipoli. The South Brisbane Band, provided music during the afternoon. In the evening an open-air concert was rendered, the organiser being Mr. C. M. Morgan.

The fete was organised by Stephens Shire War Council, with the object of raising £300. The Governor was to have opened the fete but owing to an important engagement was unable to attend. The Lieutenant Governor and State Commandant also had similar engagements, and could not attend. The Chairman (Councillor F A Stimpson) introduced Mr D F Denham who performed the opening cermony and the Caledonian Pipe Band, under the baton of Pipe major Rankin, rendered selections during the afternoon. The stalls looked well in the early part of the afternoon, but after the rain had ceased presented a very sad appaerance. However, the rain did not in any way hinder the sale of articles from the various stalls. All round the grounds ladies were to be seen selling art union or raffle tickets, a noteworthy fact being that all the prizcs were donated by residents of the district. The arrangements for sports were cancelled owing to the condition of the ground. The stalls and their conveners were as follows - sweets Miss Dorlane , ice cream Mrs J A Cockerlll , cakes Mrs Serlvcn ; soft drinks, Mrs G S Flaye , produce, Mr, J Stewart , horticulture, Mr JSoden ; Paddys market, Mr T Gibb , refreshments, Mrs F A Stimpson. Weather permitting, the fete will be continued this evening, and a concert will be held in the grounds.

The building will be handed over from the Works Department today, and at us expected that everything will be in readiness for school work to begin on March 4. It is intended that kindergarten work shall be included in the curriculum at the school, in addition to the ordinary school work Mrs A T Crosser has been appointed as head mistress. The school is for girls and infants only, and accommodation is provided for 450 pupils in the building proper,, with additional space below. It is probable that the erection of a boys' school in the vicinity will be proceeded with at in early date. The Buranda school will relieve the pressure on the schools at East Brisbane, Dunellan, Junction Park, and perhaps Dutton Park.

    CIGARETTES ON PARADE. A WARNING TO CADETS. Sidney George Reading, a senior cadet, was proceeded against before Mr w. Harris, P M , in the City Summons Court yesterday by Herbert A Benjamin area officer training area 9a, on information that on July 13, 1918, at Junction Park, South Brisbane defendant had in his possession on parade, material for making cigarettes. The defendant pleaded guilty. Captain Benjamin said that the bringing of cigarettes by cadets to parade was having a very bad effect in many instances. Cadet sometimes came down to parade smoking, and others who knew that to do so was an offence, looked upon such conduct as treading the authorities with contempt. Cigarette smoking .was having a serious effect on discipline. It was the first occasion he had brought cadets before the court for such an offence, but something had to be done to put it down. While not pressing for a heavy penalty, he asked that the defendant he dealt with ia such a way as would impress others.
    Mr Harris, addressing defendant said ' As your ofliccr rightly has pointed out, it is absolutely necessary to have discipline in the military forces. Discipline must be maintianed, otherwise the forces will become a rabble and useless tor their purpose " Mr Harris said that in view of all the circumstances of the case he would not impose a severe penalty, but would fine defendant 2/6 with 1/6 costs in default to be committed to the custody of the area ofliccr for 12 davs. The P M warned defendant against the consequences of a repetition of the offence.
    Captain Benjamin If parents give then consent to cadets smoking pipes they are allowed to do bo provided we have the consent in writing, but under no circumstances are cigarettes permitted Medical authorities tell us that cigarettes stunt the growth of lads at the cadet age.
    Mr Harris "Yes, they are better without smoking at that age.
    Two other cadets were dealt with in the children's court on a complaint ol a similar nature.

Stimpson) who invited the officers and men to a breakfast prepared for them' in the play- room of the Junction Park School. The march was resumed via the lpswich-road, signs, of welcome being everywhere apparent. Near the Yeronga School a group of school children assembled' to greet the passing column. There, was another and much larger gathering at the tram terminus. At Junction Park the school road was lined on each side by borne hundreds of the pupils in charge of three of the' teachers (Messrs. Dempsey, Morrow, and Clarkson), The children waved tiny Union Jacks and cheered as the men passed between their lines. The men formed up on the school parade ground- with the ranks of pupils round them; and all -sainted the flags of Britain and Australia. Here they were entertained by the ladies of the shire, and toasts were honoured. The fine honour board on the school wall recorded the names of 300 boys at the Front was much admired. The board and the portraits of the fallen boys had 'been tastefully decorated toy the girls and some of the teachers, with a profusion of wattle. The march to South Brisbane was resumed at 11 o'clock..
