BARNAWARTHA.
Word has been received that Sergeant
Ted Draper has been wounded in France.
This is the second time that Teddy has
been wounded. He has been three years
on service and his friends hope that his
wound is not a severe one. -
Private "Paddy" Devitt was also wounded
in this big fight. This is "Paddy's"
second time also. He was wounded at
Pozieres about two years ago, being shot
in the- heel. It was thought then that
he would be invalided home, but he was
patched up and returned to the firing line.
"Paddy" is a cousin of Private George
Boyce, of Tallangatta; whose death in
action was reported last week. They are
grandsons of late Mr. and Mrs. Boyce, of
Wangaratta, formerly of Barnawartha

On 20th September, 1917 during the attack on POLYGON WOOD Corporal Boyce was in charge of Wireless and Power Buzzer station. He erected aerial under barrage fire and after much trouble and dangerous work ( being buried by shell fire and much shaken) he got into communication with the Corps directing station. He set out earths and power buzzer and obtained communications and constantly repaired same under constant shell fire. Having established his station he went through barrage to the Brigade Forward Stations and set them in working order. It was largely due to the conspicuous gallantry on the part of this N.C.O. that amplifier and power buzer communication was such a success.

Mrs. John Harney

In our last issue we gave a brief notice of the passing of Mrs. John Harney, on Wednesday July 22, 1903. She had been ill some time and her death was not unexpected. Mary Boyce was born in county Tipperary, Ireland, in 1833. She came to the United States, arriving in St. Louis in 1853, and came to Henry in 1854. Here in the year 1856 she was united in marriage to John Harney. By this union there survive 6 children. William of Chicago, Edward of Oklahoma, John of Mineral, Ill., Mrs.Margaret Harrington of Champaign, Mrs. Kate Studyvin of Rantoul, and Thomas at home. The sisters and brothers surviving are Mrs. Elizabeth Wallace of this city, Mrs. Margaret Glasheen of Providence R.I., and Daniel Boyce of Peu(n)field, Ill. Her husband preceded her to the other life some years ago. Her age was 70. For many years Mr. and Mrs. Harney resided in Whitefield, owning a fine farm, he being one of the most industrious and successful farmers in the township. After his death Mrs. Harney concluded to sell the farm and move to Henry, and purchasinga house has since made Henry her residence. She was a good woman, kindly as wife, mother, neighbor and friend, beloved by a large circle of friends, and to the fullness of time at a ripe old age, has gone to her heavenly home.

The funeral was held on Saturday, at 10 a.m. at St. Joseph's church, where Rev Fr Kurley, the rector, chanted a requiem high mass, following with remarks appropriate to a sorrowing occasion of this kind. The auditorium, altars and sanctuary had been draped for the memorial services be held the next day in honor of the late Pope, and seem appropriate for the solemn event in connection with the funeral of Mrs.Harney. 'Jesus lover of my soul' and 'Nearer, my God to thee,' were among the hymns sung by the choir during the services. The pall bearers were Messrs. Joseph Harrington (I think brother to Thomas Harrington, cuz Thomas had a brother named Joseph who died in Henry, Ill in 1935), John Barry, Charles McManus, John Hartley, Jr., Philip O'Mara and David Dwyer. Those present from abroad at the funeral were W.H Harney and wife from Chicago; John Harney and wife of Mineral; T.L. Harrington and wife of Champaign; Mrs. J.A. Studyvin of Rantoul; Daniel Boyce and daughter Mrs.Burke of Penfield; Mrs. McCabe of Morris, Ed Harney and wife of Bradford; Wm Harney of Sparland, and Mrs. Michael Real of Bradford.

There was a very large attendance of sympathizing friends, and the services were solemn and impressive. The internment was in St.Patrick's cemetery north of the city.

Call not back the dear departed,

Anchored safe where storms are o'er.

On the border land we left her

Soon to meet and part no more.

On the casket rested a cross of beautiful flowers, also a pillow of flowers on which was the word "Mother," a bouquet of white roses and a beautiful.....(I do not have the rest of the article).
