The End for Luss.


Concert – A concert in aid of the Luss Golf Club was given in Luss Hall on Wednesday of last week. The Rev. A.S. Dunlop presided over an audience that was large considering the inclement nature of the weather. The chairman explained that the course had had to be abandoned and the club brought to an end owing to the continued difficulty in securing the necessary funds – a difficulty which was felt all the more on account of the smallness of the local population from which members might be drawn. The proceeds of the concert were to help to discharge liabilities which still rested on the club. An interesting and varied programme was sustained by the Fairfield Male Quartette – Messrs T. Adam, George Granger, Charles Middleton, and W. Irvine – assisted by Misses Maie Abercromby and Cameron Craig. Mr Dunlop also contributed two songs. The accompaniments were played by Mr Turnbull and Mr Campbell McGregor. The concert was followed by a dance in which a large number of visitors and local people took part. The music was supplied by the Richmond Brothers.
