Quite a num­ber of towns­peo­ple as­sem­bled at the SS Bingera on Monday evening, the oc­ca­sion be­ing to say farewell to Lieu­tenant Hely, who with 10 vol­un­teers, left for the front. Sev­eral of his friends pre­sented him with use­ful ar­ti­cles as to­kens of the es­teem in which he was held by them, the ladies es­pe­cially be­ing con­spic­u­ous by their pres­ence. His work in con­nec­tion with the Rail­way De­part­ment took up a lot of his time, but his spare hours were de­voted to the AGA [ Aus­tralian Gar­ri­son Ar­tillery], with such good re­sults that for some time he has held the po­si­tion of Lieu­tenant. So­cially, he was a great favourite, be­ing very fond of mu­sic, and a fair vo­cal­ist, and a con­stant at­ten­dant at most of the terp­si­chorean gath­er­ings. His de­par­ture was marked by the pres­ence of his many young friends, who saw the steamer leave to the strains of For He’s a Jolly Good Fel­low.
