FAREWELLS TO SOLDIERS.

SEND-OFF TO PRIVATES M. A. AND M. P. CRONIN.

YEELANNA, August 14. 

A smoke social was tendered to Privates   M. A. Cronin and M. P. Cronin in the Yeelanna Hotel on Friday night prior to their departure for the front. They have always taken a lively interest in all local sports, &c., and their act in offering their services to the Empire has been admired. Mr. T. A. Wilkins occupied the chair and proposed the health of the King. Mr. W. Watkins proposed the toast of "Our Guests." Others who also supported the toast included Messrs. Carey, Jones,     Bache, Cooper, C. Carey, Habner, and   Behinna. Privates M. A and M. P. Cronin, responded. Songs were rendered by Mr. B. Pharmer (2), E. Firrell. The singing of "Auld Lang Syne" terminated one of the pleasantest evenings ever held in Yeelanna.

His brother, Trooper Myles Cronin, also sailed on the same date, and they had been together practically all the time. He was well known and highly respected by a large circle of friends, and the news of his death came as a great shock.—R.I.P.
