THE COÜNTEY.

TWO FINE OLD MEN.

STIRLING EAST, October 26.-For several weeks there have been dangerous ruts in the Mount Barker road. It is wonderful that serious accidents have not occurred. Recently the holes have been so deep as to be cNoccding'y perilous to vehicular trafti-. The Stirling council would not recognise any responsibility to repair them because it is a Government road. Two old-age pensioners, both of whom are over 80 years of age, fearing serious results, without payment of any kind, procured metal and blinding and filled up two of the worst holes. One of the-se fine

old men on Saturday last repaired a danger spot at Stirling AVcst. Tlie other tin-afe 7>la«>, nt Strung Ej»t, .1 little below the Church of Christ, was made safe by the second octogenarian 0:1 .Monday. These grand oli mer. deserve the ittitme-t thanks of the travelling public. As «l.stan, e in the second case was given ht- a wcll kiiowr resident, who brought along his horse and

cart.

WALLAROO, October 24-The Wallaroo branch  

of the Cheer-up Society is doing valuable work. The hon. secretary is Miss H. Davies. When the present new wheat siding is ready the wheat now stacked inland and much at various outports in the gulf is to be brought to Wallaroo for re- stacking. This will give employment to many wharf hands for some time. The men are making good progess with the work. The plans for the two extra class rooms at the public school have arrived, and tenders are to be called for the work at an early date. The Rev. Samuel Forsyth, the

popular Methodist minister, of Wallaroo, who has been appointed chaplain for the trip of a troop- ship, was given a public farewell in the Town Hall on Monday evening. The mayor - (Mr. T E. Ashton) presided over a large audience, and complimented Mr. Forsyth on his appointment. Addresses were also delivered by the Rev. D. Morgan, of Lloyd Memorial Church, Conncillor Clark, Mr. J. Malcolm, Mr. H. May, Dr. W. H. Harbison. Mr. .S. H. Davey, and Mr. P. M. Sulli- van. Items were rendered by Mesdames Martin   Lawson, Miss O. Harman. Messrs May and Lawson. Dr. W. H. Harbison presented Mr. Forsyth with a fountain pen from the tennis club, and the mayor handed him a parcel from the Cheer-up Society, also an extra military packet from Miss F. Snodgrass. The Rev. S. Forsyth was born in County Tyrone, Ireland; his father was a farmer, and supported a wife and six child- ren from the produce grown on 20 acres of land. He was at the age of 15 years apprenticed to the drapery trade, and he left home for Australia when 20 years old. He lived with his uncle in Brisbane for four months, and then went to Melbourne, where he secured a situation at the emporium of Messrs. Foy & Gibson. After re- maining with that firm for twelve months he sailed for New Zealand, and obtained a situation in Wellington. On his return tn Australia he entered the Hope Lodge Missionary Training Col- lege, Belair, Later he took np evangelistic work and then entered the Methodist ministry in 1907. The first year he was engaged in evangelistic work, and was appointed to Cross-roads, near Moonta Here he spent two years, and did splen- did work, after which he was stationed at Central   street, South Broken Hill, and after three years' good work at the silver city, came to Wallaroo, where for 2½ years he has labored, and the po- sition of the Wallaroo Church to-day owes much to the excellent effort of one of the most popular ministers that have filled the Methodist pulpit here. He is deservedly esteemed by all.
