TAILEM BEND.
The Tailem Bend "Entertainers" reappeared in the Institute Hall on Wednesday evening last week. The proceeds were for local patriotic funds, and the hall was packed to the doors. An entirely new programme was given, consisting of the latest ragtime, patriotic, and other ballads.
…At the patriotic' concert held on Wednesday evening, May 2, the fourth picture, containing 16 photographs of soldiers who had enlisted, was unveiled by Mrs. Slater, of Wellington. The chairman of the Patriotic Citzens' Committee stated that this was the fourth picture to be unveiled, and that Mr. P. J. Critchley, who has collected the photos, expected to have sufficient shortly to make another group of 16 which would then bring the total to 80. The following soldiers' photos were unveiled:—Messrs. L. Rhue, Dan Sieben, C. Fuller, W. Karpany, J. P. Morris, P. Slater, W. Rayney, A. H. Wachtel, J. Taylor, F. White, F. Bolton, J. Winterfield, A. Rhue, W. J. Miller, J. O'Reilly, and J. Stott.
