MP for 25 years

301014 hector A meeting of the Presbytery of Lockerbie was held in this church on the 13th instant, for the purpose of moderating in a call to the Rev. John Davidson, Lochend. There was a numerous attendance. After the first rush for food stuffs and the attempt of unscrupulous shopkeepers to make capital out of the situation – which attempt was promptly regulated by the military authorities – Hamburg was comparatively quiet, and but for the companies of reservists we saw being drilled, and the great number of troop trains passing through, we might have thought that the war was a bit of a fable. The annual Harvest Thanksgiving service at Eskdalemuir Church was conducted on Sunday morning by the Rev. J. C. Lough who preached an eloquent sermon on the sowing, reaping and gathering in of the grain. Dumfries and Galloway Regional Council and Annandale and Eskdale District Council both hosted receptions last week to pay tribute to Sir Hector Monro who has been M.P. for Dumfriesshire for 25 years.

Allies meet strong resistance in France

Resistance is being offered by the Germans on a front extending from the Noyon district, the heights to the north of Vic-sur-Aisne, and to the north and west of Reims, as far as Ville-sur-Tourbe, west of the Argonne. Along this front they have established some strong defensive positions. The first meeting of the new session was held in Gilnockie Hall, with Mrs J. Little presiding. Gregor Fisher, well-known Scottish actor and star of BBC2’s “Naked Video” officially opened the refurbished Thomas Hope Hospital and Health Centre in Langholm.
