A concert and variety and entertainment was given in Castle Hill National School, Gilford on Friday evening, 15th inst, The Rev. P.P. Campbell, P.P., Tullylish, occupied the chairment, and the accommodation given by Castle Hill Schools, was taxed to the utmost extent. The first part of the programme was commenced by the school choir, a talented band of little juveniles, who received their instructions from Mrs. H. Boyle, their teacher. One and all distinguished themselves by their clever singing and acting, which was deserving of the highest praise. An action song, entitled, “The Teacher’s Guide,” was given by the children and heartily applauded. Mr. J.
