  • Notes 
      By the death of Mr. S. Faulkner,
      at tne age of 77, Narrabri lost a citi
      zen who was very closely allied to
      tne town's commercial advancement
      for over half a century. The late
      Mr. Faulkner, born at Castlemain,
      Victoria, was one of., a family of
      fourteen, having eleven brothers and
      two sisters, who all predeceased him
      except one brother, Thomas, of Mai
      din, Victoria. When twenty-five years
      of age he was sent by Messrs Elliot
      Bros, to work for Edmund Fuss, who
      was then making cordialB in Narrabri,
      Seven years later, in 1891, Mr. Faulk
      ner acquired the business from his
      employer and started out for himself,
      building a factory in Tlbbereona
      street. This factory served him until
      1913 when he erected the existing
      plant and premises in Maltland Street.
      Mr. Faulkner became associated
      with the late Mr. Stafford in giving
      Narrabri its first electric lighting
      plant, while his energies were also
      directed to controlling interests in a
      butter factory and the Tibbereena
      meat works. During the war thous
      ands and thousands of frozen rabbits
      were sent to the soldiers from the old
      butter factory.
      Mr. Faulkner was one of the first
      to manufacture ice in Narrabri, and
      when he controlled the Tibbereena
      works, he supplied ice to all the North
      western towns from' Gunnedah to
      The cordials manufactured at Mr.
      Faulkner's factory were of such qual
      ity as to attract State-wide popular
      ity. His soda water was specially in
      demand, and still is with many of the
      leading hotels In Sydney. Cases of
      this famous soda water have been
      shipped to England and other parts
      nf rV-o wnrlH.
      While a very keen and active busin
      ess man, Mr. Faulkner always found
      time to sponsor public movements. He
      became Interested in municipal affairs
      and was elected an alderman on Feb
      ruary 1, 1908. He retained his spat at
      the Council table until January 31,
      1911, and was Mayor during 1910-11,
      during which term he entertained
      the then State Governor, Sir Gerald
      Stlckland. After a brief retirement
      an alderman, from November 1912 to
      January 1913.
      Any movement which had as its
      cause the advancement of Narrabri
      found favour with Mr.; Faulkner. For
      man, a member of and committeeman
      of the P., A. H. Association, a mem
      ber and committeeman of the Narrabri
      Jockey Club, and many other organ
      isations won his support. In later
      years ill-health caused retirement
      from this very active life, but he re
      mained a keen observer of all public
      movements. Frequently his advice
      was sought on several matters. A
      prominent member of the Miwnnto
      Order in early years, Mr. Faulkner
      saw the foundation of the Lodge in
      Narrabri, and while not being in con
      stant attendnnce at meetings, display
      ed an unfailing interest in the pro
      gress made.
      Possessing a generous nature, Mr.
      Faulkner contributed to any plea for
      assistance provided he believed the
      call worthy. of support. Persons in
      need were seldom turned away.
      Deceased is survived by his wife,
      whom he married in 1904, his first
      wife predeceasing him many years
      ago. There are no children by either
      The funeral was very largely atten
      ded by his wide circle of friends, mem
      bers of the M.U.I.O.O.F., and Masonic
      Orders marching at the head of the
      cortege. The funeral service was con
      ducted by Rev. Wood, in conjunction
      with the Lodges, the remains being
      interred in the Presbyterian portion
      of the cemetery. [3]
