On Thursday evening a number of friends and comrades assembled at the Horse and Jockey Hotel, Carrington Street, to say good-by to Tpr. David Andrews. Songs, recitations, and a good exhibition of conjuring by Mr. Cole filled up the programme. The guest of the evening was presented with a wrist watch, bandolier, and silver-mounted pipe. In acknowledging the presentation Mr. Andrews said that he was not forced to go but believed in every son of Erin fighting for his King and country.
