OBITUARY. MRS. J. BOND. The death took place yesterday un- der very sad circumstances of Mrs. Elizabeth Bond, wife of Mr. Jack Bond, hairdresser. It will be remem- bered that Mr. Bond some few weeks ago commenced business as hairdress- er at Young, and it was his intention after arrangements could be made to bring his wife and family from Bur- rowa to reside. Mrs. Bond, however, &nbsp; became ill, and only four or five days ago was brought to Young, and placed in the Sacred Heart Hospital. She was then in a very serious condition, suffering from blood poisoning and in- fluenza. The late Mrs. Bond was on- ly 38 years of age. She was, we be- lieve, a native of Young, and was mar- ried here, being a niece of Mr. W. Hobson, of Stoney Creek. A family of four daughters and three sons, the youngest of whom is 2 years old, and the eldest 16, are left with the hus- band to mourn their sad loss, and we extend our deep sympathy to them in their great sorrow.

Fallen in Battle [Newspaper Article] — Young Witness — 12 February 1915
Fallen in Battle Every nation has its own particular method of identifying its dead in war time. Each English soldier has a' small oblong card (known officially as Army Form B. 2,0G7), which is stitched inside the tunic. On it are entered particulars of the man's name and re* giment, next-of-kin, ctc. Besides this every article of the main's clothing in stamped with a number which corres ponds to one written opposite his name In the regimental records, as well an the county depot of his battalion. Our method is a little mor'j elabor ate than that of Germany, who^o foI diers carry a metal disc bearing a num , ber at the Berlin "War Office. After a battle numbers, not name3, are tele graphed and verified. And the effec* tiveness of this system may bo judged by the fact that after the fighting around Metz in 1S70, when the casual ties exceeded 40,000, . complete lists wero posted in tho capital two days later. The Japaneso system is very simil ar. . Each man has three discs-one . round...

WHAT'S IN A NAME. [Newspaper Article] — Young Witness — 12 February 1915
WHAT'S IN A NAME. . The old principle of British law, that a man's hame Is his castle, has produced in many important develop ments. Perhaps the prettiest is the general custom in having one's homo j named, the same as every castle Is. Title, Territory, or distinguished j events-what a vista it opens up to the Imagination in choosing a name for the home. One of ihe most popular .ways of recording the name as a per manent decoration is in having tho chosen name stamped out on copper plate by Wunderllch, Ltd., tho well known manufacturers of Art Collings. and other popular house decorations. These name plates arc very ornate and remarkably cheap. Any nome desired can bo procured In any design. A vi sit to the firm's show rooms, in Pitt street, Sydney, is both entertaining and instructive to those interested in tho Art production of Australian metal workers.
