A Hundred Years Ago

ON Monday evening while Mr O S Whittick, of Brawns Farm, Bix, was picking walnuts, the ladder he was standing on slipped and Mr Whittick lost his balance and fell heavily to the ground. It was at once evident that Mr Whittick had a very serious injury. Dr Smith of Henley was sent for him. Upon examination, it was found that Mr Whittick had broken his back and now lies in a very critical condition.

A weekend camp of a highly interesting and enjoyable nature was spent by 40 members of “D” company, 4th Batt. The company paraded at the Drill Hall on Saturday evening, and was divided into two parties — the Blue Force (North of the Thames) and the Red Force (South of the Thames). The vicar thanked the company for the excellent example they were setting to the youths of the neighbourhood.

Henley and District Bowling Club meeting was held at the Oxford Temperance Hotel last Tuesday evening. A resolution was proposed that a bowling club for Henley and District be formed. A strong committee of eight was then elected to carry the club on. Mr Baker was elected hon-secretary and Mr S Hales hon-treasurer. The Henley Cricket Club offered the use of their ground at a nominal sum and the offer was accepted.
