On Saturday last in the presence of a large gathering, the foundation-stone of the Langhorne's Creek Soldiers' Memorial Hall was laid. Mr. A. H. Howard (chairman of the hall committee) gave an address and introduced Major W. S Hosking, who set the foundation stone in position, and declared it well and truly laid. Mr N. D Richardson (president of the Strathalbyn Returned Soldiers' Club) spoke on behalf of the returned soldiers. He said that altogether 37 had enlisted from the district, of whom 12 made the supreme sacrifice.
