A Champions’ Gathering
The piping competition arranged by Mr. Edward MacPherson appears, from the entries announced, to have attracted the champions in rare style. MacColl, Oban[;] MacPherson, Badenoch; K. MacDonald, Inverness; and Centre, Edinburgh, are a few of the names received. Seven o’clock has been fixed as the hour of commencement, an early hour, but necessitated by the numerous entrants.
