The New Battalion

The raising of the 112th Battalion, C.E.F. has been apportioned to the counties west of Halifax. Lieut. Col. T. M. Seeley hopes to raise a double company of about 250 men in Shelburne and Yarmouth counties, for the 112th, and was in town on Wednesday to interview Recruiting Officer McLean with reference to the matter. It is understood that if a sufficient number is recruited in this place a squad of boys will be allowed to lodge at home, and will be drilled here during the winter. The directors of the Agricultural Society have shown their patriotism and keenness for the town’s welfare by voting the free use of the exhibition building for troops. – Shelburne Budget.
