“That the residents of the village of Marmora are enthusiastically patriotic was evidenced last evening when the spacious new town hall was filled to the doors with men, women and children. The object of the gathering was two-fold in its character, namely, as a patriotic rally and to bid good-bye to and honor fourteen young men and one married man who have enlisted as members of the 49th Hastings Regiment for the second overseas contingent.
It was in every respect a great gathering and one that will be impressed upon the hearts of all who were present for some time to come. The hall was most tastefully decorated for the occasion with flags, bunting and flowers. The addresses and songs rendered were most patriotic.”
