The Glasgow Butchery Co. have recently sold out to Air John , Oliver, who is apparently already doing a thriving business in his new establishment.. A new branch shop is being erected at the west end of the town for Air W. H. Johnston, butcher, wherein no doubt crowds will congregate. ATi- A, IT. King, a member of the local brass band, was rather taken by surprise recently py being made the- recipient of a handsome silver sug-ar scoop in honour of his having joined the ranks of the benedicts:. MiKing rose to the occasion, and suitably acknowledged the gift. The Social Committee of the Awansa Lodgt. 1.0.0. F., AI.U., met on Saturday- evening for the purpose of presenting Air C.
