Our brave boys who were at the
front have been returning one after another until soon all will be home
The last one to receive a welcome
was Lieut. Rickie Lane, who arrived about a week ago, and on Monday
evening he was given a reception at his old home on the Reforestry Farm,
which showed by the great number who were present the respect the people
of this community have for himself and his mother and sisters. We all know the welcome we have
received at the home of Mrs. Lane, and last Monday night's proved equal to
any that had preceded it.
It is supposed that over 100 people
were present and enjoyed the games and conversation for a while, after
which the Rev. J. M. Smith, in a well-worded address, mentioned the part
Lieut. Lane had taken in the war, and thanked the Almighty for bringing
him back safely to us again, and then presented him with a small sum of
money. The excellent lunch which had been
provided by the ladies was then passed around and enjoyed by all.
