New era begins for the Scholars’ Field

150 YEARS PRESENTATION The members of Langholm Established Church Choir, on the evening of Wednesday last, presented one of the members of the choir, Mr William Murray, on the occasion of his leaving Langholm for New Zealand, with two handsome volumes of music and other tokens of respect, from ladies of the choir.
These testimonials of esteem were presented by their excellent leader, Mr Simon Irving, who made a few very feeling remarks, wishing their young friend health and prosperity in the land of his adoption.
During the severe thunderstorm which passed over this district on Wednesday afternoon, the lightning struck the chimney and shattered the chimney pots on the old toll bar at the foot of the village occupied by Miss Ogilvie.
It is not long since Treasurer Tait sort of ear-marked the Scholars’ Field as the next housing site for Langholm and we agreed that this piece of neglected ground should be utilised for some utilitarian purpose.
LAD DOES WELL IN CHAMPIONSHIP
Young Langholm golfer Graham Davidson is still only 12 years old but he wrote his name on the Thomas Dickson and Son Silver Salver at Selkirk on Sunday by winning the Border Boys Championship for Under 14s.
