Rifle Volunteers all present and correct

2108 oldwinner Lieutenant-colonel Lord Henry Scott congratulates the officers and members of the 1st Administrative Battalion Dumfries Rifle Volunteers on the smart and soldier-like appearance made by them at the recent review at Carlisle.The stay of the 5th K.O.S.B. at Dumfries was by no means a picnic for any man connected with the battalion. The officers had an extremely busy and often times very worrying spell. Although there were fewer entries than usual at the Annual Show organised by Canonbie Horticultural and Crafts Society, held in Canonbie Hall on Saturday afternoon, the quality was relatively good considering growing conditions so far as flowers and vegetables are concerned.Preparations are well underway for the “Holm Show” which takes place at Newcastleton on Saturday, with 40 trophies to compete for and £900 in prizes.

German ultimatum

070814 pipers The fourth annual exhibition of this society was held at Burnfoot, on Wednesday last. The show of fruit and vegetables both in the Westerkirk and Langholm Cottagers’ Class was very good. The intense anxiety with which at home and abroad an official statement of the attitude of the British Government in the European war has been awaited was relieved on Monday afternoon, when Sir Edward Grey explained our position in a speech in the House of Commons.Before the Langholm Pipe Band took the stage to open the concert Ex-Cornet Borthwick referred to the retiral from the band of Mr Tom Fletcher, a member of the band for 40 years.It is a great honour to be chosen to represent your country at either senior or junior level in any field of sport.

Sweethearts marry at age of 81 and 69

KC times past July25 The annual and long-looked for Pic Nic in connection with the New Town Bowling green came off on Saturday afternoon, on the ground near to Langholm Lodge. The North British Agriculturalist, dealing in its summer number with agricultural men in the Border show district, says:– “Mr Thomas Elliot, Kirndean, Newcastleton, has still to a large extent his spurs to win, but he is a young man of much promise, and since he went to Roxburghshire has taken quite a prominent place in the county. A son of the late Mr Walter Elliot, who was for many years factor and manager at Ardtornish, he was brought up in a thorough school, and is not only an enthusiastic farmer, but a capital manager of stock.”A Langholm widow Mrs Nellie Moffat who is 81 years of age was married in Kirkpatrick-Fleming Parish Church on Friday, 10th July, to Mr Bill Grierson a 69-year-old widower.Cornet Johnstone was well supported on the Peden’s View rideout on Tuesday night when 52 riders participated. Ian Rhodes had a difficult job judging a good entry in the pony competition, the girls looking particularly smart with well-groomed ponies. After much deliberation, he eventually pronounced Allison Middlemass the winner and her sister Clare a close second.
