    ROSEBERY
    By Our Correspondent
    WELCOME HOME.
    The residents of Rosebery and district turned out in full force on Wednesday night to a welcome home social to Private Wattie Toner, of Warracknabeal, who has been invalided home from the front. Prior to enlisting Private Toner was in the employ of Cr. McMahon. A short programme of musical items was much enjoyed. Mr. Anderson made an efficient chairman, and spoke in glowing terms of the patriotic spirit of the guest in going to fight for King and country, and referred to the good reports of the bravery of Private Toner at the front, which the guest had not mentioned, but which had been written home in letters by comrades. On behalf of the residents, Mr. Anderson presented the guest with a gold medal, inscribed, and said he was very pleased to welcome him back again., Messrs. Mitchell and Roll endorsed the chairman's remarks. Private Toner, in a neat speech, thanked all present for their kindness, and for the medal, which he would always prize. The company lustily sang, "For he's a jolly good fellow," and gave three hearty cheers.

    The ladies provided a supper in their usual good style. The dance which
    followed proved most enjoyable to
    those who care for the pastime.

    Appended is the programme:"God save the King" and "God bless our splendid men." overture, Miss Oakley; song,
    "Sing us a song of Australia," Miss Thwaite; song, "Anzas," Miss Oakley; recitation. "When the old man starts to plough," Otto Bierwith; song, "A Broken Doll." Mr. Stimpson (a returned soldier, who added a very good
    recruiting verse to the song); recitation, "Larkhill Camp," Neville Darley; song. Miss Thwaite; song, "Urchins we," Otto Bierwith, George and Ada Thwaite. The piano was kindly lent by Mrs. Thwaite.

    BALMORAL.
    Balmoral held great rejoicings on Tuesday on account of the glad news coining through that hostilities had ceased. Business places were closed, and a general holiday observed. The school children marched from the school dosn the street singing patriotic songs, and general cheering was joined in by the crowd assembled. Sports and games were held for young and old in the Mechanics' grounds, and very much enjoyed by all, for they derived great fun out of it. Addresses were given by the Rev J. I. King, Cr. H. J. Seymour, and Messrs. W. T. Plunabe, F. H. Brown and W. P. Toner. The singing of the National Anthem concluded the programme, and a huge bonfire was set going. Thus ended the day's rejoicing.
