Smoke Night and Presentation to Mr. G. J. Tuckett. On the retirement of Mr. G. J. Tuckett from the secretaryship of the Nathalia Agricultural Society, it was felt by the members of that body that some fitting recognition of his services should be made. He had taken the position when the affairs of the so- ciety were at a low ebb, and by perse- verance, tact, and ability had in seven years wiped off an overdraft of over £1100 and presented a balance sheet with a credit. The outcome of this feeling was the presence of over 100 townsfolk and members of the society in the Public Hall on Thursday even- ing last, when a social was tendered Mr. Tuckett. The President of the shire (Cr. W. A. Campbell) was in the chair, the President of the Agricultural Society &nbsp; (Mr. W. Leaf), being on his left, and the guest of the evening on his right hand. Having invited all to make themselves at home and do justice to the catering of Mr. O. Gray, of the Bridge Hotel he said a great honor ha...
