We are glad to learn that Mr. Ivan Rolson, of Bangor, has been appointed to a second-lieutenancy in the Royal Irish Rifles at Donard Lodge, Newcastle.



It is not generally known, but it is none the less fact, tha Mr. Hans M'Roberts, dyer and cleaner, of 57 Main Street, Bangor, (opposite Scrabo House), is the pioneer of the dyeing business in North Down, and indeed in a very much wider area. Mr. M'Roberts inaugurated the business as long ago as 1888, and during the years that have intervened since then, although many similar concerns have sprung into existence, he continues to enjoy the esteem and the patronage of a very large section of the public. For the fact of a garment having been cleaned or dyed at the Bangor dye works is proof positive that it has been done in the best way possible. (advertorial continues)



Bangor shares in the honour which has been distributed in General Sir John French's first list of officers and men whose conduct during the war has been distinguished by conspicuous gallantry. Included in the list was the name of Sergeant Charles Graham, of the 5th Royal Irish Lancers, who is a son of Mr. James Graham, Church Street. Congratulations are due to the parents and friends of Sergeant Graham upon the honour that his bravery has won for him from the Commander-in-Chief.
