PIC NIC. -- Some of our citizens had a pic nic on Thursday of last week. The national brass band was present to enliven the scenes of the day. We understand the pic nic was enjoyed hugely.

RAIN BADLY NEEDED. -- Rain badly needed in this portion of God’s vineyard. Vegetation is suffering for the want of it. Heavy rains have fallen in other portions of the country during the past week, but no rain have we had for lo these many weeks. The weather clerk must certainly not be attending to duty promptly. It is hoped that the parched earth will be refreshed by rain.
