Many Soldiers Return

Quite a large number of soldiers have returned to this county during the past week, and received warm welcomes from their relatives and friends.

By far, the greater number came in on Sunday, but, unfortunately, they were not able to arrive on one car. 
A number therefore missed the informal welcome planned for them at 3.30 in the afternoon.

The soldiers band, which is faithfully practicing a couple of evenings a week, was at the 3.30 car, and played a number of selections, reminding its hearers of the days when the 39th band, and later the 133rd band, gave so much enjoyment.

A large number of townspeople also visited the station and greeted the soldiers.

Among the lucky ones to return during the week were:

A. Angus
H. Bannister
George Blake
Clarence Brady
B. Brown
Oscar Brown
W. Capper
Oliver Decou
L. Dixon
Walter Hammond
[Olof] Hitchcock
A. Holman
L. Howey
Charles Judd
Capt. Ira Miller
Lemon Mills
Roland Mills
Delbert Neiderauer
Frank Price
Wm. Rigg
James Urie
Jim Vincent
Robert Westgarth
George Wilson
