  • Notes 
      By the death of Mr. S. Faulkner, at the age of 77, Narrabri lost a citizen who was very closely allied to the 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 Maidin, Victoria. When twenty-five years of age he was sent by Messrs Elliot Bros, to work for Edmund Fuss, who was then making cordial in Narrabri, Seven years later, in 1891, Mr. Faulkner acquired the business from his employer and started out for himself, building a factory in Tibbereona 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 thousands 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 Walgett. The cordials manufactured at Mr.Faulkner's factory were of such quality as to attract State-wide popularity. His soda water was specially indemand, and still is with many of theleading hotels In Sydney. Cases of this famous soda water have been shipped to England and other parts
      of the world. While a very keen and active business man, Mr. Faulkner always found time to sponsor public movements. He became Interested in municipal affairs and was elected an alderman on February 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 Strickland. 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. Forman, a member of and committeeman of the P. A. H. Association, a member and committee man of the Narrabri Jockey Club, and many other organisations won his support. In later years ill-health caused retirement from this very active life, but he remained 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 constant attendnnce at meetings, displayed an unfailing interest in the progress made. Possessing a generous nature, Mr.Faulkner contributed to any plea for assistance provided he believed thecall 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 marriage. The funeral was very largely attended by his wide circle of friends, members of the M.U.I.O.O.F., and Masonic Orders marching at the head of the cortege. The funeral service was conducted by Rev. Wood, in conjunction with the Lodges, the remains being interred in the Presbyterian portion of the cemetery. [3]
