      WOWAN
      To honour Miss D. O'Neil, whose marriage to Mr. F. KrieseI will take place in Rockhampton in June, a number of her friends arranged a gift evening, which was held in the Masonic Hall on the 20th instant. Streamers, in delicate shades, of pink and blue, interspersed with trails and bunches of greenery gave the hall a very pretty appearance. Games, dancing and competitions were enjoyed. Matron Rhead and Mrs. Flood, winners of competitions, subsequently handed their prize to the guest of honour. Winners of the gentlemen's prizes were Mr. Jim Pegg and Mr. Cummings. Mr. T. Pegg gave splendid assistance with games and competitions, for which the committee of ladies responsible for the arrangements, is grateful. Musical items were rendered by Mesdames Neil and Brittain, the dance music being supplied by Mrs. Christensen and Messrs. Pegg, Olson and Thompson. A dainty supper was served, after which Mr. A. Neil, on behalf of the bride elect thanked those present for their beautiful gifts and for their many good wishes. Mr. Neil also apologised for the absence of Mr. Kriesel, who was too far away to be with them that night. The singing of "Auld Lang Syne ' brought a very pleasant evening to a close.

      Before leaving Wowan for Marburg, where she will in future reside, Mrs. S. Rutter was presented with a silver tea strainer on stand by the ladies of Wowan and with a silver sandwich trough by the lady members of the Roman Catholic Church. On the eve of his departure from Wowan, Constable S Rutter was farewelled at a smoke concert held in Preston's Hall on the 21st instant, about 50 representatives of town and country being present. Mr. H. Roxburgh, chairman of the Banana Shire Council, presided, and proposed "Our Guest"' which was supported by Mr. W. Hoskings. The chairman then presented Mr. Rutter with a wallet, of notes. Mr. Rutter suitably responded. Other toasts were also honoured. Songs were rendered by Messrs. K. Davidson, J. H. Christensen, T. Adams, H. Morton and Stirling, Messrs J Day, Stirling and F Bray contributing recitations. An enjoyable evening terminated with the singing of "Auld Lang Syne" and "For He's a Jolly Good Fellow.'"
