  • Notes 
    • Farewell Gathering to Volunteer. A large number of friends gathered on Saturday afternoon at the house of Mrs. A.S. Weber, 95 Brubacher St., to bid Signaller Benj. Clayfield farewell, who is about to leave in a few days for England. Mr. Clayfield has been training in Guelph and London Barracks since last February as signaller and is now a qualified subject. On his arrival in England he will receive further training. The many friends that gathered at the home of Mrs. A.S. Weber where Mr. Clayfield is staying at present had arranged a programme and Mr. Wesley C. Kramp was appointed to act as chairman, which he did in a very able manner. The programme was as follows: Male Quartette-Tenting to-night, And Just before the Battle Mother, sung by Homer Brubacher, Wm. Brubacher, John Woolner and Gordon E. Kramp. Instrumental-By Miss Ennetta Herner (Mocking Bird) Piano Duet-By Miss Pearl Becker and Miss Ennetta Herner (Silver Bells) and (At Full Tilt) Reading by Mr. Simon Weber, and John Woolner. Recitations By Miss Mable Herner and Miss Clara Woolner. Address and presentation by Miss Clara Woolner and Mr. Homer Brubacher which consisted of a pair of beautiful gold engraved cuff links in remembrance of the many friends who gathered to bid farewell to Mr. Clayfield.
