By a mistake In correcting linotype slugs last week, the first line of the following note of the banquet was left out!' v The solos by Misses Craig and Browning and Mr. Pratt were at once a surprise and delight to the visitors, who warmly congratulated the singers. That there was a line or more omitted showed plainly enough in the Item, but Just to make sure that no will think the News Record was intentionally guilty of calling one of the fair singers by her first name without prefix of any kind and leav ing the name of the other out entire ly, space is gladly given for this cor rection."
