A RETIRING ' V.C.'
Major-General Sir Reginald Clare Hart, V.C., is shortly terminating 40 years' service in His Majesty's forces. With his retirement the War Office loses an excellent officer and the rank and file a good friend. Since his appointment in 1892 to the command of the Thames district he has added new laurels to an already enviable reputation, and it is not too much to say that he will leave his command in the best of order for his successor. Sir Reginald comes of a soldiering family. His father was Lieutenant-General Hart, who had a military career mapped out for his son from the moment of his welcome advent in 1848. The future general was born at Scarif, in County Clare, Ireland, and reached the army by way of Marlborough and Cheltenham colleges. At 21 he was appointed lieutenant In the Royal Engineers, and from that date his promotions were rapid. Sir Reginald won his V.C. in the Afghan war in 1879, when, in spite of a galling fire from a much superior force, he literally cut his way to the rescue of a wounded trooper of the 13th Ben gal Lancers. He was also conspicuous for his courage in the 1881 Ashanti Expedition, and he was twice mentioned in despatches during the 1882 Egyptian campaign. Besides countless other in stances of recognition from headquarters, the plucky general possesses no fewer than five distinctions for bravery in saving human life. He had scarcely been in the army six months before he was presented with the Royal Humane Society's medal, besides a special medallion from the townspeople of Boulogne, and a medal from the French Government. This wholesale recognition was for rescuing a French man from the treacherous waters of Boulogne Harbor, at the risk of his own life, for, in diving, he struck his head against a pile, and for a time was rendered almost unconscious. But, undeterred by pain, he dived and brought the Frenchman safely to land. Twenty years after he added the silver clasp to his medal, at Roorkee, in India, by saving the life of a gunner who was drowning in the Ganges Canal. General Hart also wears the medals for his various campaigns, and among them that of the recent South African war is particularly prominent. He did yeoman service with Buller on the Tugela, and since his return to England has commanded at Chatham. The general has always led a busy open-air life, yet he has found time to attach his name to several publications and to make himself perfect in most of the manly sports. He was honored with a K.C.B. in 1893 by Queen Victoria, who had a high opinion of the gallant officer.

BLOCK 10 FATALITY.
The acting coroner (Mr. Dove, D.S.M) held an inquest (with a jury of six) at the Courthouse to-day into the death of Patrick Devitt, who was killed in the Block 10 mine yesterday morning. Mr. T. Jhomson appeared for the Block 10 mine, Mr. B. Sawyer for the Mines Department, and Mr. W. D. Barnett on behalf of the A.M.A., of which association deceased was a member.
Dr. Dobbyn said deceased was dead when he saw him at the mine; all the muscles-and vessels and nerves of the right thigh were carried away; there was a large scalp wound on the head; death was due to shock from the injuries to the leg; there were no bones broken, and the scalp wound was unattended by fracture.
Thomas Devitt, miner, and brother of deceased, said deceased was a widower and left one child 15 years old; he was born in County Clare, and was 43- years old.
To Mr. Jhonson: Deceased, had been mining for about 20 years.
Charles Walters, miner, and mate of deceased, said they were working at stope No. 25 yesterday morning clearing away rocks to build a bulk to catch up ground that might come away, and had been working for about an hour and a-half under the same stone; before they started the rock was fairly sound; the shift boss (Snell) was there at the time, and asked deceased what "she" was like; deceased said "she" was as good as gold; after about an hour and a-half the stone came away and broke in halves, one piece hitting deceased on the head and the other piece in the groin; deceased said to witness as soon as the dirt cleared away, "Hold up my head, mate-don't let me choke;'' witness did so and called for help; it took six men to get the stone off deceased's leg, and even then de- ceased was breathing; when pulled up he was dead.
To the coroner: The work at which deceased and witness were engaged was not interfering with the safety of the rock that fell; they were merely getting the loose rocks out of the way.
To a juror: Witness considered that the bulk system was the safest, and that the accident would have happened just the same with square sets.
To Mr. Johnson : Witness and de- ceased had been working at the same place before; they knew that the ground was not too safe, and they tested it with extra precaution; the timbering was being put in closer than usual on account of the unsafe state of the ground; plenty of timber was available.
To Mr. Barnett: There was a bulk not two yards away from the scene of the accident ; they were going to continue with the same bulk to catch the ground at the back; between the foot wall and the bulk the ground was not heavy at all; witness reckoned that too many parties were, working in the stope and that the stope was pretty dangerous; witness's opinion was that the stope was settling, and that's why the ground came away; the ground was capable of being properly sounded; they pulled deceased up the winze on a 10 x 2 plank; the winze would measure about 4ft. x 5ft. ; about two tons of ground fell away; men pulled deceased up with ropes; the marks on deceased's head would not be caused by scratching in going up the winze; it was a perpendicular winze; when the shift boss came down he told them to build a bulk under the rock that fell and also to sound it well.
To Sergeant Mackie: Witness had been four years underground at Wallaroo Mines, and then he started with deceased; he had been working for seven weeks in the stope in which the accident happened; deceased saw Murphy, of the night shift, who told him when going on that there was some bad ground on the hanging wall; deceased did the sounding; witness was satisfied that the ground was sounded thoroughly.
To Mr. Jhonson: Witness had only been working as a miner for seven weeks in Broken Hill.
Charles John Murphy, miner, employed on the night shift, said he spoke to deceased when coming out of the cage; deceased said, " Well, how are things now?" and witness said. "Not too good; deceased asked," Where is 'she' looking bad?" witness said. "There's a piece on the hanging wall that is not too good at all-the mullock was falling there all night;" witness also said, "There's a big rock on the bulk that wants to come off, and when you get it off prop the bulk up as quick as you can; he advised deceased to be careful, and deceased said, "I don't mind 'her' at all.;" the last cage was leaving from the surface, and wit- ness said, "You'd better get down, Paddy ;" witness told the shift boss on the plat that the place was not too good, and their boss explained to him what they had been doing during the night.
To a juror: Before crib. "she" was laced right across, and there were stringers from the double bulk; "she" was laced from one bulk to the other with 10 x 2 timber; the ground was not very much cracked over the ends of the stringers; there was, in fact, no crack at all.
To the coroner: Witness told deceased that "she" was not too good at all, but the rock that fell was not the one that he thought most likely to do so.
To Mr. Barnett :They all knew the stope was a bad one, but the way they were working ''her" wasn't a bad way at all.
Joseph Snell, shift boss, said he went to No. 25 at about 20 minutes to 9 o'clock, and deceased was then in the act of sounding the ground; witness said, "How are things this morning?" and deceased replied, "First class I've never seen the stope looking better since I've been in it than 'she' is this morning;" deceased said, "Our mates say it's a bit heavy, but I don't know where it is;" he went on sounding again, and said, "Listen to this;" deceased said, "We'll take off those few stones on that bulk and rebuild it," and witness said, "Yes-and wedge her up tight;" deceased then repeated that "it would be as good as gold;" witness went to the 1200ft. level, but he had not gone far when he was informed that there was an accident in No. 25 stope.
To a juror: It was possible some- times to sound a piece of rock two tons in weight with a bar.
To Mr. Barnett :_ Witness himself put his hand on the piece of ground that came away, and it was found all right.
The jury returned a verdict of accidental death.

At Nurse M'Kimmie's private hospital last evening, at 5.30, there passed away Dr. O'Meehan, the well-known medico. The doctor was well-known in mining and racing circles, and was a member of the Weld Club and other local institutions.
Dr. O'Meehan, who was the eldest son of the late Mr. O'Meehan, merchant, of Ennis, County Clare, Ireland, arrived in W.A. 32 years ago, when he was 22 years old, and two years later in September, 1877, entered the Government service.

Coroner's Inquest.
On Saturday afternoon, Mr. W. Clarke, A.S.M., Parramatta District Coroner, held an inquest on the body of an old pensioner named John Dixon, who, on Friday morning, had been found lying dead underneath a low bank near the edge of a'Beckett's Creek, Granville. The inquest was held at the Vauxhall Hotel, where the body was then lying. Louis Quartermain, a lad, deposed that he saw a man (the deceased) lying near the bank of the creek.

Kerr deposed that he saw the body of a man, John Dixon, on -Friday. At the Coroner's request made a post mortem examination of the body the same day. The heart, lungs, kidneys and bowels were healthy, Found a quantity of blood effused over the brain. The cause of death was the effusion of blood on the brain, which was, in witness's opinion, due to a fall (not to disease). It might have been caused by a blow or any external force.

NEW PICTURE FOR THE ART GALLERY.
His Excellency the Governor has very kindly lent a valuable picture to the Art Gallery, It is an original picture by John Singleton Copley, R.A. (1737-1815), from which he painted his large picture which hangs in the National Gallery in London. The subject is "The Death of Major Pierson at St. Heliers, Jersey." The picture has all Copley's characteristics--rich in colour and dramatic in composition. Copley was an American by birth, born in Boston. His father and mother emigrated from Limerick. The father was descended from the Copleys, of Yorkshire, and his mother from the Singletons, of County Clare, both families of importance. When J. S. Copley was 11 years of age his mother was married to Peter Pelham, a portrait painter and mezzotint engraver. This marriage was an advantage to young Copley, since he not only received the instruction and advice of Pelham, but was surrounded by those who sympathised with him in the choice of his profession. He attained eminence as a portrait painter in America, and lived in easy elegance, having married in 1769 Miss Susan Clark, a daughter of a distinguished merchant of Boston. A little later Copley sent to Benjamin West (then president of the Royal Academy) in London his picture of "The Boy with a Squirrel" for exhibition at Somerset House. He sent no letter or name with it; the rule of the exhibition excluded anonymous pictures, but knew it to be American work by the wood upon which it was painted, and from the fact of the squirrel being such as belong to New England. The rule was set aside, and the picture so favourably received that Copley was advised to go to England. He sailed in 1774, never to return. …

Obituary DEATH OF FATHER LYNCH IN DISCHARGING HIS DUTIES. The news of the appallingly sudden death of the Rev. Father Lynch under most distressing circumstances on Sunday evening, was received with the very deepest regret by every section of the community yesterday, especially those people over whom he ministered, and by whom he was very dearly beloved. Father Lynch had for some time past been in the hands of his medical adviser, as he suffered from heart trouble. Acting under his doctor's advice, he gave up driving to the distant parts of his charge alone, and for a considerable period has been accompanied by his friend, Mr. M. Dunne, head operator at the local telegraph office. On Saturday evening Father Lynch, accompanied by Mr. Dunne, left Horsham at six o'clock, in a buggy for Rupanyup, which place they reached, after a nice drive in the cool of the evening, about 9.30 p.m. After a good night's rest, Father Lynch held service in the Rupanyup Hall, and despite the very hot weather there was a good congregation. At 10 a.m., the reverend gentleman and Mr Dunne left for Murtoa, the drive being very trying, owing to the great heat. Murtoa was reached at 10 minutes past 11, and at 11.30 another service was held in the Catholic Church. Again the heat was intense, but the congregation a fairly numerous one. Father Lynch preached a fervent and eloquent sermon, and many of those present subsequently commented on the earnestness of his manner, and all will in future years remember the last spoken words of their much be loved priest. Service over, the travelers had dinner at Sheridan's Club Hotel. The afternoon was spent in resting and trying to keep out of the heat so that they might return home in the cool of the evening. Father Lynch had a quiet lie down after 4 p.m., and about 5.30 the deceased and Mr Dunne started on their way home. When about two miles out of Murtoa Father Lynch expressed a wish to get out of the buggy, but they drove on a good distance further before he did so, his companion having to assist him out. Mr. Dunne observed Father Lynch was reeling very consider ably, and he jumped out of the buggy to assist him. The deceased was then in a state of partial collapse and it was with great difficulty Mr. Dunne got him into his seat. They had not driven more than 100 yards when the deceased collapsed altogether, and Mr Dunne had to support him on his arm. Even then he appeared to be dying. With all the haste possible, Mr Dunne galloped to Mr. Martin McGee's, where he called for assistance and had the unconscious priest carried in and laid on a sofa. Mr. Dunne felt certain that by this time Father Lynch was dead. In Mr. McGee's they opened the deceased's shirt, and baring his breast drenched it with cold water. Whisky was also poured between his teeth, but all without avail. Every thing that could be thought of was done to revive him unsuccessfully. Mr Dunne, in the meantime, had despatched a messenger to Murtoa for Dr. Rabi and came on himself in an effort to reach Horsham. His horses, however, knocked up, and he only reached as far as Mr. Con Hogan's of Dooen. Here he rested his tired animals, and dispatched Mr. Con Hogan on a fast horse for Father Meade and Dr. Robinson. When Dr. Rabi arrived he pronounced life extinct and Dr. Robinson, who had at tended Father Lynch, pronounced that death resulted from heart failure. The deceased Father Lynch, who was 50 years of age, was born at Ennis, County Clare, Ireland and came out to Australia when quite a young man. Early in life he had dedicated his career to the church. He completed his education and student life at Bathurst, New South Wales and was ordained in Melbourne. About 20 years ago he was stationed in Horsham as priest. After a few years he went to far fields, and officiated at Hamilton, Maryborough, and Watchem. In every place he made warm and fast friends, and was the beloved by all who came in contact with him. About six years ago he returned to Horsham, where he remained till his sad and sudden death. The deceased de voted nearly all his time to his people and his Church, and took little participation in public matters. He was an exceedingly charitable man, and there are many families who have thanked God for the timely aid that has reached them through the medium of Father Lynch's always open purse. The deceased was one of three brothers, all priests, one still officiates in Ireland, and one was drowned while in the execution of his duty in New South Wales. Naturally the Senior Priest of the parish, Father Meade, is very much cut up about the sad death of his colleague, whom he has always held in the highest esteem, and whose demise he deeply deplores. The funeral will take place at 1.30 this afternoon, and it is expected that several priests will be in attendance, to pay their last respects to their deceased friend. Mass will commence in the church at 10 a.m. The body was brought in from Mr. McGee's at a late hour last night, and placed in the church.

A WOMAN DROWNED
MAGISTERIAL INQUIRY.
On Saturday Mr H. Pinchin, J.P., the coroner for this district, held a magisterial inquiry concerning the death of a married woman named Norah Ayres, at Carrington, near Jerry's Plains. The following evidence was tendered: — Norah Ayres, a. single woman, residing at Carrington, and the daughter of the deceased, deposed that she drove her mother and two children into Jerry's Plains on the previous day (Friday), and they were returning home about half-past 4 o'clock in the afternoon; when, in coming up out of the river, the trace broke in halves and the horse turned round. The sulky struck a log in the river and capsized, and witness and de ceased were thrown out, the sulky being on top of deceased. Witness got the children out and placed them on the bank, and then tried to get the sulky off the deceased. The water was some three to three feet six inches deep and the bank was very steep, coming out. Witness sent one of the children, about nine years of age, to tell her brother what had happened, and her brother came down at once and helped remove the sulky. Some time elapsed between the upsetting of the sulky and releasing the body. There were no signs of animation in the body. They all tried to restore life, but without avail. Deceased had complained at times of her heart, but had not been under a doctor. The body of deceased was completely sub merged in the water, the back of the sulky pinning deceased down. Witness and the others bad been in the habit of crossing the river for years, and never had an accident before. The horse was a quiet one. George Ayres deposed that he was a farmer, and lived with his mother (the deceased) at Carrington, Jerry's Plains. Deceased was 73 years of age, and a native of County Clare, Ireland. De ceased left home with the last witness to go into Jerry's Plains during the previous afternoon. Witness heard of the accident, ran down to the river, and found the deceased in the bed of the river, with the sulky on top of her. Witness assisted his sister to lift the sulky off the body of deceased, and took the body to the bank. Witness thought deceased was then dead, but tried to restore animation by placing the body face down-wards, and working to pump the water out. This was continued for some time without any good effect, and the body was brought to the house, where Constable Vaughan also tried for some time to restore life. Deceased left six boys and four girls living, and her husband died some six years ago. Deceased owned about four acres of land at Jerry's Plains, valued at about £40. Deceased owned no stock, nor was her life insured. The horse was perfectly quiet. Constable Vaughan gave evidence as to having been called in when the accident was reported, and his endeavours, without avail, to restore animation to the deceased. He was of opinion that death was caused by asphyxia, by drowning, through the sulky pinning the deceased under the water. He had known the deceased for some sixteen months and she appeared to be a healthy, well-matured, and nourished woman. No medical evidence was tendered, and the Coroner found that deceased met her death by drowning, through the capsizing of a sulky.

STRANGE DISAPPEARANCE.
APPLICATION TO THE COURT. CASE OF THOMAS KEANE.
His Honour Mr. Justice Real was asked in Chambers last week to grant administration, on presumption of the death, of an intestate under somewhat peculiar circumstances. In 1893 Thomas Keane, a labourer, residing at Maryborough, left, it was thought, for Sydney. Before going be gave his Government Savings Bank pass book, in which there was a credit of £156, to William Clancy, of Goomeri, near Kilkivan, requesting him to send it to his father in Ireland if anything happened to him. From his departure from Mary borough neither Clancy nor Keane's relatives in Ireland ever heard from him. It was supposed that he reached Sydney safely and went into partnership with a man named Neville as a builder and con tractor, but, although careful inquiries had been made and advertisement had been published in Southern papers, no trace could be found of either Keane or Neville. They had apparently disappeared from the face of the earth. In August, 1899, a son of Clancy saw a paragraph in the "Colonist" stating that a man named Thomas Keane had been admitted to the Plague Hospital in Sydney and had died there. He concluded that this was the Thomas Keane who had formerly lived in Mary borough, in 1905 William Clancy (the father) visited Ireland, and called on Thomas Keane's father in the County Clare, and gave him the bank pass book, telling him that be believed Thomas Keane had died of the plague. Fresh inquiries were set on foot in Sydney and Melbourne, and it was ascertained that the Thomas Keane who was admitted to the Plague Hospital did not die, but was discharged cured. This person wrote to the solicitors concerned suggesting that he was the Thomas Keane formerly of Mary borough. A list of questions were sent to him to answer in proof of this identity, but he made no reply to the letter, and the information he had given in his letter of claim did not agree with what was known of the Thomas Keane supposed to be dead. No trace of the latter had been found, and the money he left in the Savings Bank had in the meanwhile increased the addition of interest to £241 9s. 1d. Mr. F. W. Mole, Deputy Curator of Intestate Estates, applied on the assumption of Keane's death for letters of administration of his estate. His Honour went very fully into the matter, and held that the evidence was sufficient to raise the presumption of death, and following the case of re Gooding, decided last year, granted administration accordingly.

KENNY. Mr Patrick Kenny, one of the best known farmers of Bungeet, died at Winton, on the 24th inst., after a lingering illness, from an affection of the heart, the outcome of a strain caused whilst endeavoring some years ago to move a log during fencing operations. The de ceased, aged 53 years, sold his old home at the first named place only a few years ago, and bought another homestead where he died, which, however, he was not destined to enjoy, for, soon after taking possession of it, he became seriously indisposed, gradually sinking till his expiration on the date alluded to. The late Mr Kenny was born in County Clare , (Ireland) and came to Victoria 44 years ago, so that he was a mere boy when he arrived here. Having reached the age of manhood he married Miss Catherine Bergin, the daughter of old and well respected people who lived for many years at new township, Kilmore, and finally settled at Bungeet as a land selector, where, with the co-operation of a faithful energetic wife, he reared a family of three sons and four daughters, the eldest being 23 years and the youngest 9. Deceased was one of Nature's gentlemen--one of the highest eulogiums that could be used respecting him--and was not only behoved by his wife and family for his kind and self-sacrificing character as a father, but was one of the best-liked men in his own community. So generous, indeed, was he that he could not keep the use of anything he possessed from a needy neighbor; and his liberality in other ways was simply bound less. Candid critics used to say of him that he was far too kind and that rather than disoblige anyone he would suffer loss himself. Unfortunately this, fine stamp of man is dying out only too fast, but if there really be a hereafter--as all Christian men believe there is-he, of all others, should enjoy eternal reward. A feeling of intense sympathy is felt for Mrs Kenny and family in the departure from their fireside of one who, with such nobility of character, was of such loving interest to them.

DEATH OF Mr Martin O'Dea.
News, was brought into town yesterday morning of the passing away of Mr. Martin O'Dea, of Deer Park, Lord John Swamp, which sad event took place at on early hour yesterday. Mr. O'Dea was 70 years of age, and was born in County Clare, Ireland. He emigrated to these colonies 46 years ago, and immediately proceeded up to the Downs. When free selection was first introduced into this portion of the State, Mr. O'Dea was fortunate enough to secure the holding which he retained till the time of his death. He and his good wife bore the vicissitudes and troubles of a pioneer's life; but the fighting spirit of the Celt was strong in Mr. O'Dea, and he weathered the storm. He was of a most kindly disposition, his home was always welcome to the stranger, and a more hospitable man never lived. His death has removed from our midst another land mark-another of the old residents, who are slowly but surely crossing the bar. Though his death was expected, yet the tidings of his demise were received with feelings of genuine regret. He is survived by a widow and seven grown up children, Councillor Pat O'Dea, Elbow Valley; Mr. John O'Dea, Western Hotel, Toowoomba; Mrs Pendock, Royal Hotel, Chinchilla; Mrs. Kennane, Bundamba; Mr. Tom and Steven O'Dea, Deer Park; and Mr Daniel O'Dea who is at present in one of the other States. The deceased had a large family connection in the town and district, and to the members his family and their relations we extend our sincere sympathy. The funeral is timed to be at St. Mary's at 2:30 to-day.

Deceased, who was 72 years at age at the time of his death, was born at Ennis, about 18 miles west of Limerick, in County Clare, Ireland, his parents being in comfortable circumstances. He must have come to Australia early in life, as he participated in the early days of Bendigo and many other mining rushes, visiting Western Australia and New Zealand, in which latter colony he is said to have made a decent rise. He was also at the Palmer and Hodgkinson rushes, and was packing in the palmy days of Port Douglas, being for a while a resident of the town. Finally he got married and made his home at Rifle Creek, on top of the Port Douglas Range.

DEATH OF MR. M. HINCHEY.

One of the most highly esteemed and well known pioneers of the district, in the person of Mr. Michael Hinchey, died suddenly at his residence on Shark Creek, on Saturday morning. It appears Mr. Hinchey was about his ordinary duties early on Saturday, and complained of feeling unwell, and returned to his bed, and soon afterwards expired. Death is attributed to heart failure. Mr. Hinchey, who was 75 years of age was born ¡n County Clare, Ireland, and came to the colony in 1867, and on his arrival was engaged on the South Coast for some years, after which he came to the Clarence and entered into farming pursuits on the South Arm, and eventually took up land in the vicinity of Shark Creek, on which place he resided for about 35 years. The death of Mr. Hinchey removes from our midst one who had done much for the progress of the district in which he resided, and as one of our early pioneers severs a connecting link with the pioneer days of the past, when the settlers had to contend with the many difficulties surrounding the early days of the Clarence, and of the present prosperous inhabited district of the Lower Clarence, which enjoys the title of being one of the most prosperous localities on the coast, and which is due to men of the late Mr. Hinchey's stamp. Reference was made by Arch-priest Walsh at the R.C. Church, Maclean, on Sunday morning to the esteem in which the late Mr. Hinchey was held, and to his sterling qualities as a churchman and a citizen of the district. The funeral took place on Sunday, and the body was conveyed by the s.s. Maggie from Shark Creek to Maclean, where the procession left the public wharf for the R.C. cemetery at 12.30. The funeral was very largely attended. Ven. Arch-priest Walsh officiated at the graveside. Mr. Hinchey leaves a widow and 11 children to mourn their loss, and being Mesdames J. Gallagher, Thos. Maguire, M. Ryan : Misses M. and K. Hinchey: Messrs. J. Hinchey, Michael Hinchey.,Thomas Hinchey (Shark Creek), Denis Hinchey (hotelier, Chatsworth), Joseph Hinchey (police force, North Svdney), and Patrick Hinchey (police force, Newcastle). Mr. Patrick Hinchey, of Maclean, was a brother to deceased the late Mrs. D. A. Silver being a daughter.

MR PATRICK CALVIN. RETIRES FROM N.Z. MINES DEPARTMENT. SOME -PERSONAL REMINISCENCES.
The many Yea friends of Mr Patrick Galvin, who formerly con ducted the "Chronicle," will regret to learn that the ruthless hand of the retrenchment party, which is now causing great consternation in the New Zealand civil service, has fallen heavily upon him, “The Mines Record," a Government publication of which he was the editor for some years past, having been abolished. "The Record" was a thoroughly modern publication, in magazine form, which kept those interested in the mining industry well posted in all developments in the two islands and also placed before them particulars of the most up to date methods and scientific treatments of ores, etc. The capable manner in which it was edited was the frequent subject of favorable comment by similar works in other parts of the world, and in every way reflected credit on our popular friend. The journal, however, was conceived in the days of New Zealand's unbounded prosperity, and now that the tide has turned, temporarily at any rate, against this land of great resources, an oppressed treasurer has passed "The Record" out of existence, and Mr Galvin, although he has not reached the superannuation retiring age, being in his 62nd year, comes under the general scheme of retrenchment. Memories of his splendid personal attributes still doubtless linger pleasantly in the minds of many of our readers, who came to know him as one of Nature's gentlemen, and the following personal reminiscences recounted in a New Zealand paper. should not prove uninteresting: Mr Galvin, who is a native of Ennis, County Clare, Ireland, has had an interesting career. He came to New Zealand from Melbourne in 1S75, after spending eight years on the Bendigo and Ballarat goldfields. The Otago goldfields attracted him, and he subsequently edited the Arrow Observer, Arrowtown. The climate of Otago being too cold, he came to Wel lington, and worked for some time as a compositor in the Government Printing Office ; then he joined Lyon and Blair, and later on the New Zealand Times jobbing and news office, eventually becoming sub editor. Mr Galvin then went to Hawera, and started the Star, with Mr J. B. Innis, printer, of Wellington. and Mr J. C. York, the latter then being editor of the New Zealand Times, having succeeded Dr Pollen. Whilst residing in Hawera Mr Galvin had some interesting experiences during the Parihaka troubles. He relinquished his Hawera position in 1882. After a sojourn at Rotorua, Mr Gal vin went into business at Opunake, and later on started the Egmont Courier. This did not prove a financial success, lasting only six months. Proceeding to Gisborne, he edited the Poverty Bay Herald for some nine months, then resuming his old position of sub-editor of the New Zealand Times. About 18 months afterwards, 1886-7, the Hon. W. J. Larnach, at that time Minister for Mines, engaged Mr Galvin to compile the Handbook of New Zealand Mines and this was his first connection with the Mines Department. At the conclusion of that work he proceeded to Marl borough, and edited the Marlborough Express for some time. Crossing over to Melbourne, he represented the New Zealand Times and Christchurch Press at the exhibition of 1888, and he became connected with the Melbourne press, representing the Victorian Farmers' Gazette in the Press Gallery. He was sub-editor of that paper at the time it was edited by the late Mr C O. Montrose. Thence he edited the Wangaratta Chronicle, and later on became lessee and editor of the Yea Chronicle. He remained at Yea for six years, and, on retiring, was presented with an address in the Shire hall, receiving also a purse of sovereigns, for his services to the district. He was in addition, the recipient of an address from the Yea Dairy Company, one of the leading dairying companies in Victoria, for his services to the dairying industry. Mrs Galvin at the same time received a gold watch. Returning to New Zealand, Mr Gal vin took charge of the Hawera Morning Post started there by Mr H. M. Stowell, of the Native Department. After a year 's residence in Hawera he joined the Mines Department as secretary of the Mining Bureau and editor of the Mines Record, Hon A. J Cadman (afterwards Sir Alfred Cadman) being then Minister for Mines. Mr Galvin initiated the Record and has edited it up to the present day. The Queensland Government, after a visit of some of its representatives, followed in New Zealand's footsteps in the matter of a publication of this nature. Mr Galvin edited the Mines Handbook issued in connection with the International Exhibition in 1906. About thirty years ago, Mr Galvin, in company with Mr Vincent Claridge, Mr H. E. Wareup, of Charlotte-street, Mr W. Smith, of Hawera, Mr W. Jennings (now Druids' secretary in Wellington), Mr Capper (now farming at Parparumn), and some other enthusiasts started the Wellington Working Men's Club with a modest capital of thirteen shillings. Mr Galvin was unanimously elected the first president. On three successive occasions he received the same mark of favour from its members. During this period strong pressure was brought to bear to induce him to contest a Wellington seat for Parliament. Those were the days before payment of members was authorised, and he could not see his way to enter politics. On his retirement from the presidential chair, he was presented with a valuable marble clock. The club started with a membership of less than 40; to-day it has about 1000 members. Mr Galvin will take with him in his retirement from the Mines Department the best wishes of a very large circle of friends.

OBITUARY.
DEATH OF MR. THOMAS LEECH.
We regret to announce the death of Acting-sergt. Thomas Leech, of the Queensland Police -Force, who for the past three years has been in charge of the watch-house at the Warwick station. Some few weeks ago Mr. Leech took ill, but his devotion to duty was such that be would not lay up until absolutely compelled to. In consequence he had rather a bad turn, but he recovered sufficiently to put hope into the hearts of his friends that if he took a change to another climate he would soon recover his wonted health and strength. Leave of absence was therefore secured from the authorities, and Mr. Leech went to Brisbane and later to Lismore, N.S. Wales. The anticipated return to good health, however, was not realised, for the strain on the heart had been too much, and yesterday one of his oldest friends in Queensland, Mr.

John Leonard, received a wire conveying the sad news of his death in Lismore. The late Mr. Leech, who was about 54 years of age, was born in County Clare, Ireland, and in his early days was a school teacher. But the attraction of the police service, of which his father had been a member, prevailed, and he joined perhaps the most famous corps in Europe, the Royal Irish Constabulary. Later he became a member of the London Metropolitan Police Force, and subsequently saw service with the China Police, after which he joined the Queensland Police. In the latter he had a long and meritorious service, and before he was transferred to Warwick he was in charge at Emerald, in the Central District. Wherever he was stationed Mr. Leech speedily made warm friends, and though his residence in Warwick had only been a short one, he had already surrounded himself with a circle of admiring friends. Though of a quiet and unassuming disposition the late Mr. Leech had rare talents. His mind, both from experience and study, was richly endowed, and to this he added the charm of an observant man of the world. In his youth he cultivated the poetic Muse, and, indeed, in London published a volume of verse which was splendidly reviewed by the great English literary journal "The Athenaeum," and was also excellently reviewed by the London morning press. In Australia his imaginative gifts found expression in another direction, and about 20 years ago in Brisbane he perfected a new kind of bullet, which secured a flatter trajectory, this involving, of course, a higher speed and increasing the then limit of point blank range. The Brisbane "Courier" published a laudatory article on this invention, but, owing to difficulties at the time Mr. Leech could not induce the authorities to take the matter up. Mr. Leech, however, had the satisfaction-a saddening satisfaction, perhaps-of knowing that some years later a bullet, embracing the principal features of the Leech bullet, was adopted by the German army. Of late years Mr. Leech had interested himself in a hydroplane and given special attention to a noiseless and smokeless powder, the idea of which had been simmering in his mind for many years. Indeed, during the past three or four months Mr. Leech, through the instrumentality of Mr. S. B. Irwin, had placed himself in communication with the Commonwealth Defence authorities regarding this powder, and, had he lived, he expected before the end of the year to initiate experiments, based upon previous discoveries, in this connection. Amongst those who knew him the deceased was regarded as a warm hearted and true friend. He was possessed of a mind richly stored with knowledge, both in science and literature, whilst in the police force he was an exceedingly popular officer. He leaves a widow to mourn her great loss, and the sympathy of the community will go out to her in her sad bereavement.

Mr. Michael Nolan of near Harrogate, who died a few days ago, was 68 years of age. He was born in County Clare (Ireland), and came to South Australia in 1858. He settled, on the Bremer River, and after 10 years took up land which has been the homestead of the family ever since. He was an industrious and thrifty man, and increased his holding until he had a large area of land. He indulged in sheep breeding and agriculture, and was very successful. A widow, six sons, and four daughters survive, and there are also eight grand children.

We regret to announce the demise of Mrs. Toomey, relict of the late Mr. T. Toomey, of Elbow Valley, which sad event occurred about 8.30 on Thursday night. The deceased, who is a sister of Mr. John Burns, Dragon-street, was 68 years of age, and death was due to general break up. She was born in County Clare, Ireland, and in company with her brother came to Elbow Valley when the gold rush commenced to that place. Later, she and her husband selected land in the district, experienced all the trials that were the lot of early pioneers, but eventually they won through. She proved herself a good parent, a fond wife, and an excellent neighbor, and she and her family of two sons were respected by all who came in contact with them. The funeral took place yesterday, and was largely attended, a number of members of the Hibernian Society walking at the head of the cortege.

BATTLE OF QUEBEC. WOLFE BANQUET.
… DR. MACNAMARA'S REMINISCENCES. Dr. Macnamara also replied. He said Mr Haldane had toiled with such striking ability and extraordinary energy and industry for the well-being of the British soldier that no one on an occasion like that could adequately take his place. Mr Haldane had asked him to say that nothing but the absolute call of duty on the bench in the House of Commons would have prevented his being present, that he deeply regretted his absence, and how sincerely his wishes were for the success of the function. (Cheers.) Having said that, he might say that he felt peculiarly honored at being asked to be present. Sixty years ago a young Irish lad from county Clare joined the old 47th, "Wolfe's Own," as a private soldier. He went out to the Crimea, and fought in the trenches before Sevastopol as a private soldier. "Later he went to Canada with the regiment as a young sergeant," added Dr. Macnamara, "and on August 23, 1861, in the barracks at Montreal I was born-his son." (Hear, hear.) Dr. Macnamara, continuing, said he was very proud to wear the King's uniform as a commissioned officer, a Minister of the Crown, but he was even prouder of being the son of Sergeant Thomas Macnamara, of the old 47th, Wolfe's Own. (Hear, hear.) He spent his very early days in its barrack rooms, upon its parade ground, its ball alley, its guard-room, its canteen, and, greatly daring, had even explored its orderly-room and its cells. (Laughter.) He therefore learned all about the heights of Abraham, and Wolfe, and Montcalm, the rare chivalry of both leaders, and the fine courage of both armies. He thought Wolfe and Montcalm both set the world an imperishable exemplar of splendid devotion each to his cause, and of splendid devotion each towards the other. (Hear, hear.) Their fight was 150 years in the past; their memory was undying, and out of their nobility of character, and the patient devotion of their followers had sprung due fruit in the brotherhood, the good will, and the loyalty to one another which characterised their descendants to-day in Canada. (Cheers.) A week or two since he sat and listened to the discussions, between members of Home Government and representatives of Governments of' Oversea Do minions, on the great and even vital problem-British Imperial Defence. He rejoiced, as a Colonial born, to note the instant recognition by their brothers across the sea of their stake in integrity of this Empire. He rejoiced to think that they were privileged-they of the Oversea Dominions, and they of the Home Government-to lay foundations of a defensive force by land and sea, adequate to meet any possible needs of the future. Not for purposes of aggression, but to defend our far-flung Empire, and to keep open, the great sea highways, upon which our commerce and the daily food and occupation of our peoples so largely depended.

Chronicle and North Coast Advertiser (Qld. : 1903 - 1922) Saturday 26 February 1910 p 4 Article
Mr. Patrick Reilly of Image Flat who holds 116 acres as a dairy, sugar cane and general farm, came from Ireland in 1863; knocked about Queensland for 11 years getting colonial experience at such jobs as shearing, mining, timber getting, &c., and finally settled down near his present , property thirty-six years ago where he stayed for about eighteen years, and then removed to his present house a little further up, where he and his good lady have been since residing. About 20 years ago, Mr. Pat Reilly combined the dual business of farmer and butcher for a period of three years. Getted with an original vein of humour, and a fondness, for reminiscences, he is worth the effort needed to get him talking.

Mr. Patrick King, "Clare Hill.' 1 mile from Nambour, near Coe's Creek, holds 160 acres of which 10 are under cane. Mr. and Mrs P. King hail from County Clare in Ireland and landed in Queen land in 1873. During the first 2 or 3 years Mr. King was farming and timber getting in other parts of the Colony and finally 34 years ago settled down in "Kanambi" Pocket, near Nambour, growing sugar and general farm produce. He stayed on that farm for 30 years and it was only 4 years ago that he removed to 'Clare Hill,' distant 1 mile from Kanambi Pocket. Mr. and Mrs. Pat King like every other pioneer of that time, had to contend with difficulties of every kind. As an instance, it may be mentioned that during the first two years of his sojourn on the first farm they grew a good few acres of sugarcane, and just before the crop was to be cut and sent to Bli Bli, the mill at that place collapsed and left them with tons of sugarcane on hand and 2 years of hard labour for nothing. Undaunted by that unexpected misfortune Mr. King has supplied the Nambour Mill with cane every year since its inception.

Mr. T. Howard, 'Fertility' farm (Nambour Township; originally composed of 160 acres, but through sales now dwindled down to 11 acres, 4 of which belong to Mr. and Mrs. Howard, and 7 to their daughter, Mrs. Burrell, the whole of the 11 acres being worked as a milk farm under the name of the "Nambour Dairy". Owing to Mr. Howard's absence at the seaside I could obtain but incomplete details about him. Mr. Howard was born in England and must have come early to Queensland, for he married his present wife in 1864 or 1865 in Brisbane. Therefore they must have been in Queensland for the last 45 years if not more. Before finally settling down in "Fertility" farm, Mr. & Mrs. Howard resided for a good many years in the Pine River district, and came to Nambour about 30 years ago. Mr. Howard Snr., hails from County Clare, Ireland.

DEATH OF MOTHER MARY STANISLAUS. [Mary Anne Kenny, born 23 Feb 1841 to parents Matthew Kenny and Erina McMahon, entered Mercy Order 2 July 1859 – moh]
FIFTY YEARS IN RELIGIOUS LIFE. A Distinguished Sister of Mercy.
The death of Mother Mary Stanislaus Kenny, foundress of the Congregation, of the Sisters of Mercy at Singleton, is an event of more than ordinary importance. It is, indeed, a noteworthy event in the history of the Catholic Church, in Australasia. For the life-work of this noble nun is interwoven with the Catholic and social life of this country, and it would be difficult to form an estimate of its beneficent and holy influence. The death took place at 9 o 'clock on Saturday night at St. Patrick's Convent of Mercy, Singleton. The venerable nun had been seriously ill for about two months, and for many days previously the end had been momentarily expected. At the hour mentioned she passed away, so calmly and peacefully that the Sisters kneeling around her were hardly aware of it, although all had been watching for the supreme moment. The late Mother Mary Stanislaus was born in Limerick, Ireland, on February 22nd, 1841, and was therefore 69 years of age. Her father and mother were both highly cultured, and possessed considerable means. They had a family of four-three daughters and one son—-all of whom embraced the religious state. The son, Charles Kenny, was a most zealous and saintly priest, and died on the American mission. The eldest daughter—Sister Mary Borgia—was a gifted Loretto nun, and died some years ago at the Loretto Abbey, Gore, county Wexford, Ireland. The second daughter was the subject of this notice, Mother Mary Stanislaus, who was educated at Limerick and afterwards at the Ursuline Convent in Watorford. Was received into the novitiate of the Sisters of Mercy at Ennis, where her aunt was Superioress, on February 15th, 1860, and was professed on February 18th, 1862. The youngest daughter of this saintly family was Mother Mary Peter, Superioress of the Ennistymon Convent of Mercy, Ireland. The grandfather of the late Mother Mary Stanislaus on the maternal side was Mr Charles M'Mahon, among whose grandchildren were thirteen nuns and three priests. Four of the members of the Singleton community of nuns were cousins of the deceased. After spending 15 years in the convent at Ennis, Mother Mary Stanislaus and nine other Sisters of Mercy from the same house left Ireland for the now mission at Singleton. The beginnings of the convent at Singleton, and the difficulties of the Sisters of Mercy in this new land, were well told by the eminent Redemptorist missionary, Very Rev. Father O'Farrell, at the opening and blessing of the magnificent new convent on August 8th of last year. He said: — "In the year 1874 the Most Rev. Dr. Quinn, the late and beloved Bishop of Bathurst, went to Rome and placed in the hands of the great Pope Pius IX. the report of his diocese. When starting for Europe on that occasion his great friend, the late Dr. Murray, Bishop of Maitland, gave him a commission to try and procure, for Singleton- a community of the Sisters of Mercy. After many disappointments and much travel, Dr. Quinn was advised to try the convent at Ennis, in the county Clare, Ireland, and he was told there was there a flourishing community of the Sisters of Mercy, founded from the neighboring city of Limerick, and that probably amongst that community he would be successful. It was a fortunate event for Singleton— and I might say for Australasia—that visit of Dr. Quinn, for there he found 10 devoted and noble women ready and willing to undertake the voyage and the work. The nature and the extent of that work they hardly suspected, but they were prepared to come to the then- un known and little thought of mission of Singleton. In a little time they were all ready, and having said good-bye to their native land, to their head convent home, and to their friends and relatives —to the home they were to see no more in this life—they started on the great feast of Saints Peter and Paul, June 29, 1875. It was a holy day of obligation, the bells were ringing for the last mass, and the little band was, accompanied to the station by thousands and thousands of people. Having started with Dr. Quinn, that brave little band of volunteers arrived safely in Sydney on August 25th of the same year. They were met in Sydney by Dr. Murray, and the hearty welcome that was so natural to him was given them. From that, day forth he never ceased to be their friend and their father, and never missed an opportunity of expressing, both -publicly and privately, his esteem and gratitude for the services of those sisters. For a few days they remained under the hospitable charge of the Dominican nuns, then settled in West Maitland, while Dr. Murray came on to Singleton to prepare for them a home and a welcome. On the 31st August the sisters arrived in Singleton, where they were met by a procession of buggies and horsemen, that escorted them to their new home, and there, up to the present, they have remained. Their new convent home, by the banks of the Hunter, has since become a centre of enlightenment, of piety, and of charity for the whole of the diocese: From this humble beginning the convent at Singleton has sent out sisters to found branches in different parts of Australasia —in the dioceses of Armidale and Wilcannia, in New South Wales; and in the dioceses of Wellington and Dunedin, New Zealand. Fertile and fruitful indeed was the soil in which this little seedling from Ireland came to be planted, for at the present day—and I think it is now four and thirty years since they landed in Sydney and came to Singleton—I believe I am correct in saying there are now scattered over Australasia 22 convents and 287 nuns of the Order of Mercy, who all owe their origin to the little band who set out from Ennis for Singleton in 1875." The valiant woman who led that little band has now passed away, after working earnestly and successfully for the honour and glory of God; and the aspirations of her earlier years were realised in the completion of the now and splendid convent which forms a land mark in the town of Singleton. It is worthy to note that Mother Mary Stanislaus during her lifetime regularly visited every convent of her Order, and knew personally every Sister. She was present at the inception of the foundation houses, and gave to the sisters in charge the benefit of her matured experience. It seems superfluous to speak of her generosity and charity to all in need, for they were well known, and it was her delight to encourage such works among the members of her community. Mother Mary Stanislaus is dead, but her spirit lives, and her work goes on. To all who knew her, her memory will be in benediction, and she will be revered in common with. Catherine McAuley, theillustrious foundress of the Order of Mercy—a sisterhood that has done so much for the care of the orphan, the relief of the poor, the instruction of the ignorant, and the nursing of the sick and wounded in the hospital and on the battlefield. At St. Patrick's Church on Sunday morning, in the presence of large congregations, Monsignor Meagher referred to the life and labours of the deceased nun. For almost 35 years, he said, the late Mother Mary Stanislaus had been in Australia, and for practically the whole of that time she had been head of the Sisters of Mercy. During the last 16 years he had been intimately associated with her in directing work in this parish, and could say that she was a noble woman and a most saintly nun. She was highly accomplished, and could have taken her part in the highest circles of society in the old country; in fact, she was born, into it. When the question of establishing the Order of Mercy in Australia was broached, the late Mother Mary Stanislaus was one of the first to volunteer, and was at once selected for the position. After paying a tribute to her works of charity, and to the interest she manifested in the care and welfare of orphan children, Mon signor Meagher said many people throughout Australia and the dominion of New Zealand would hear of her death with genuine regret, because they were indebted to her and the Sisters of Mercy under her aegis for training and guidance into the ranks of right-living citizens. It was a remarkable coincidence that she, who had planned, the erection of the Convent at Singleton, and the archiect (Mr F. -B. Menkins), who had designed it, should pass away within the same week. On the occasion of the recent visit of a number of bishops, when his Eminence Cardinal Moran was also present, it was remark ed that the Convent was one of the finest buildings of its kind in the Common wealth. The late Mother Mary Stanislaus had painted the Catholic map in Our Lady of Mercy's colors from Newcastle to Inverell and Moree, in New South Wales; and from Dunedin, to The Bluff, in New Zealand. She had con ducted the work of her religious life admirably, and with discretion and prudence. Six of the sisters who came out from Ennis are still living, and the parent house at Singleton and diocesan branches hold 114 nuns. As many of these, as can attend will be present at the funeral A requiem high mass and solemn office for the dead will take place at St. Patrick's Church this (Tuesday) morning at 10 o'clock, and afterwards the remains of deceased will be interred in the nuns' cemetery.

It is with regret that we have to record the death of Mrs Organ, wife of Mr James Organ of Tamleugh, which took place on Monday 5th inst. Recently Mrs Organ's health had not been satisfactory, and she was making slow progress from a recent illness. On Monday, enfeebled by sickness and old age, she stumbled, fell down over a step and fractured her thigh at the hip. The shock, combined with her weak state of health, was so great that notwithstanding that everything was done to relieve her agony, she died as above stated. Deceased was widely known throughout the district as a gentle, kindhearted and hospitable Irishwoman, who always had a happy smile and a kind word for everybody. She was born in County Clare, Ireland, in 1834, and came to Victoria when about 25 years of age, and thus was a colonist of over 50 years, 27 of which she spent in the Tamleugh district. She leaves a husband and grown-up family to mourn her loss-the shock being particularly severe to Mr Organ who is over 80 years of age. The funeral took place on Wednesday and was largely attended.-'Sentinel.'

Another of the respected citizens of Horsham has passed his eightieth birthday-Mr. J. F. Ryan, of Church Hill. Mr. Ryan, considering his four score years, is fairly well in health, and his memory is especially good. H was born in the County Tipperary, Ireland, and was apprenticed as a stone mason. Having learned his trade, he sailed for the island of Jersey, and spent a short time there in the gunneries. Leaving the island he went to Liverpool, thence sailing for New York, and spent a short time there. With others he heard a good deal of talk of Australia, and re solved trying his luck here. Landing in Melbourne in 1850, he worked at his trade, and joined the first stone mason's union there, but, like many others, the gold rush enticed him, and his first place to try was Inglewood. He was not successful, so he tried the land, and in 1859 went to Bunyip Station, near Nhill, where he worked for a time. He subsequently left for Coleraine, in the Western district. Coming back to the Wimmera he resided at Natimuk for 13 years, carrying on farming and grazing. Mr. Ryan also spent periods in New Zealand and Tasmania, and eventually selling out, retired to Horsham, purchasing property in John-street, Church Hill. Here he has been residing for the last 25 years. Mr. Ryan was married to Miss Costello, of County Clare, Ireland, and the couple celebrated their golden wedding four years ago.

She came to Queensland in 1854, being then 57 years of age. She has resided near the Bunya Mountains, in the Darling Downs, at Rockhampton, and Springsure, and in 1880 went to Peak Downs, where she has since lived. She has three sons, two daughters, 36 grandchildren, and 12 great-granchildren, who are all properly proud of this grand daughter of old Ireland and venerable mother of young Australia. She is still going cheerily and strong. Here's her health and song :

Adown the long vista of years
She beholds in perspective array,
The ghosts of the hopes and the fears.
And the friends of her long-drawn-out day.
Blent mem'ries of joy and of care,
Since that early last century morn,
In the Shannon-washed County of Clare,
When the babe Norah Sammon was born.
She can dimly remember, perchance,
That June Sunday morning long gone,
When the pride and the glory of France ?
Were quenched on the Mount of St. John;
And his end— who had lost all he'd won,
Who had flouted all Europe to scorn—
Whose greatness had flamed like the sun,
The year Mrs. Sammon was born.
She minds when Sebastopol fell,
And the welter of Crimean gore,
And the bloodthirsty national yell.
Of revenge for the deeds at Cawnpore.
She was well on to matronly prime
When the taxes were lifted from corn —
That was nigh fifty years from the time
When brave Mrs. Sammon was born.
Coronations! how many she's seen,
And crowns laid aside on the shelf!
She's outlasted four kings, and a queen
Who was almost as old as herself.
And four generations of men
Have come home with the milk in the morn,
Having done their last night-shifts since then —
Since the year Mrs Sammon was born.
She has lived to see Labour arise
Erect from the crouch of the slave,
And, to Mammon's indignant surprise,
Demand what he once dared but crave.
May her light not be swallowed in night,
Till, athwart all the seas and the lands,
All the toilers have won their birth-right—
The full fruit of the work of their hands. FIDELIO

Death of Mr. Michael Ballinger.
THE grim reaper Death has again been busy, and has removed from our midst another old Central-West Queensland resident in the person of Mr. Michael Ballinger, a man well known, especially among the old hands, as one of the great supporters of the 1891 Carriers' Union. It was only a few weeks ago we had to report the demise of Mr. Wm. Kemp, who was an old-time carrier, who, like Mr. Ballinger, found his occupation like Othello's, gone with the advancement of the railway, and sought out another mode of livelihood. Our memory takes as back many years; we remember Mr. Ballinger when he carried stationery for us from Pine Hill in the '80's, and we knew him then as we knew him of later years, as one of the most independent and withal obliging carriers on the line. But old age crept on; hard work takes the life out of a man, and it is only when the pioneers begin to get snow-white and acquire a stoop they realise they are getting old, and that their places must be given to the young and vigorous, who, in their turn, must give way to the younger ones. Mr. Ballinger, who had unfortunately a bed-ridden wife, worked on Tara among sheep for Mr. J. K. Cudmore, almost to the last, and with the after result of prevailing cold he decided to go to the hospital, and it was hoped his strength would be sufficient to get over the bout of sickness. But the old man tailed fast, and in the presence of his son William he passed quietly away at about 8 p.m. on Wednesday evening, the immediate cause of death being pneumonia. The funeral was conducted by Rev. J. Mulcahy on Thursday afternoon and was well-attended. The corpse was taken to the R.C. Church previous to the interment, and on arrival at the cemetery the Messrs Cudmore Bros, carried the coffin to the graveside.

The late Mr. Ballinger was born at Innes, County Clare, Ireland, and came out to Australia with his parents in the 5O's, landing at Sydney. As a "nipper" he worked at Tooth's brewery. Subsequently striking out for himself he, in the '60's, went to Maryborough, Queensland, and then commenced a career in the carrying interest, conveying loading to Auburn Station, Taroom, Gayndah, Dalby, &c. It was in 1866-7 he chummed in with " Peter" Vesper, and was mates with him. In 1868 Mr. Ballinger went to Dalby, the then terminus of the railway, and still carried in the Burnett district, eventually making Burenda, 12 miles from Augathella, his headquarters. Mr. Ballinger carried from there to Dalby and Roma; in 1869-70 he made his home at Roma. In 1883 Mr. Ballinger made his headquarters at Blackall, his first loading being wool from Northampton Downs (then managed by Mr. J. C. Higginson) to Pine Hill, the then terminus of the railway which the late Sir Thomas McIlwraith said had to reach the setting sun. Mr. Ballinger generally carried for the stations in the vicinity of Blackall up to 1898, when he made his home at Barcaldine, and carried the last load of wool from Malvern Hills, the road being kept open by the now Hon. James Page with an axe and a number of men. The story of using the disputed road will be fresh in the memories of many. Mr. Ballinger sold out to Mr. J. Forrest, and went on Tara station, where he worked almost up to the time of his death. Mr. Ballinger was looking forward to celebrating his silver wedding in November next, but the old adage, "Man proposes," &c. Mr. Ballinger left a wife and a family of eleven, all in good circumstances : four sons and four daughters were married and between them have 33 children. In the death of Mr. Ballinger another link with the past is severed.

QUORN, September 15.-The district of Quorn has lost another of its-old identi- ties, Mr. John Cahill, who died on September 6 in the Port Augusta Hospital, at the age of 64 years. Mr. Cahill was born in County Clare, Ireland, and was the second son of Mr. James Cahill of Knockatuna, and cousin of the Rev. Father Francis Clune; his lordship Dr. Patrick Clune, of Western Australia; and Mr. James Clune, of Quorn. The deceased came to South Australia when quite a young man, and in the early days, when Port Augusta was booming, he had teams carting on the roads. He married Miss Haggarty, eldest daughter of the late Mr. Thomas Haggarty, of Port Augusta, forwarding manager and clerk at D. Tassie & Co.'s store. Later he came to Quorn and established a large butchering business, which he conducted successfully for some time, and after dis posing of it he turned his attention to the stock business. During the long drought I he sustained many losses but he struggled through, saving a few sheep and other stock. For many years he was the holder of Nantabra station. He was recognised among stock dealers as a keen buyer. He also went in for farming at his homestead. "Knockntuna," near Quorn. As a judge of horse and blood stock at northern shows he was considered competent, his decisions giving general satisfaction. He was also one of the oldest and keenest sportsmen in the district, in his younger day a good athlete, and as a racing man he did much to advance the sport in the northern districts, and at one time had as many as six horses in his training stables at "Knockatuna." During his racing career he won many valuable trophies, including two silver cups and a magnificent gold and diamond bracelet. As a member of the Catholic Church, he was always ready to render assistance for its improvement, as was his wife, who for twelve years was organist and conductor of the Quorn Church choir. About four years ago the deceased was the victim of a paralytic stroke, from which he never recovered. He left a widow, three daughters, four sons and five grandchildren. Two of his family are married, Mr. John Cahill and Mrs. R. J. Bowden, of Quorn.

-------------PROTECTED FOR A LIFETIME------------- Mr. Arthur Gethin Creagh, of Curraghan-house, County Clare, one of the oldest magistrates in the county, who died on Monday, had lived a life typifying one aspect of the Irish question. For 40 years he had been under constant police protection. Upon his weekly visit to the town of Ennis he was escorted by armed policemen. Three times his life was attempted. Once when sitting in his study he stooped to caress his cat, when a shotgun was discharged through a window and grazed his shoulder. Shot at when driving to church with his sister, he escaped uninjured. He must have felt rather like the Irish landlord mentioned in Sir Mountstuart Grant Duff's diary, who was driving home with an English guest when a bullet whizzed past them. "Oh! It's only the lodge- keeper," he coolly replied to the excited Englishman's question; and when the latter proposed sending for the police to arrest the man - "Heaven forbid! He's the worst shot I ever had!"

MRS CHAS. JONES, SEN. In our last issue we briefly reported the death of Mrs Chas. Jones, sen., of Corryong. The "Corryong Courier" of the 21st ult. gives the following particullars of the sad occurrence:- "We regret to report that an old resident of the Upper Murray passed over to the great majority yesterday, in the person of Mrs Elizabeth Jones, wife of Mr Charles Jones, sen., of Corryong. The sad event occurred with great sudden- ness, the deceased lady being apparently in her usual good health on the previous day. A slight attack of asthma about a week ago necessitated the attention of Dr Borwn, but Mrs Jones had since resumed her ordinary houshold duties, and the end came without any warning whatever. About 2 o'clock yesterday morning Mrs Jones wakened her husband, and complained of feeling unwell. She appeared to have a difficulty in breathing, and Mr and Mrs Robert Jones assisted Mr Jones in applying treatment for her relief; but heart failure supervened, and the old lady passed peacefully away without rallying. Her death, coming so suddenly and unexpectedly, has been a great blow to Mr Jones and his family, and deep sympathy is felt for them in their sad bereavement. Mrs Jones was a native of County Clare, Ireland, where she was born in 1838, being thus 73 years of age. She was the daughter of the late Mr Thomas O'Brien, who was the superintendent of a charitable institution. Her father died when she was a child. Mrs Jones came out to Australia in 1860, and some two years later she was married to Mr Jones, who was then carrying on the business of a general blacksmith at Germanton. Mr Jones subsequently removed to Snowy Cree, and then to Kiewa, and finally he settled down in Corryong in 1875, when he established a business now carried on by his son Robert. Mrs Jones leaves a family of seven. The five sons are Messrs W. F. Jones, Malvern; C. and John Jones, Wodonga; and James and Robert Jones (Corryong.) Mrs Munday (New Zealand) and Miss Kate Jones are daughters." The funeral took place on the 21st ult. at Corryong, and was largely attended. The service of the Roman Catholic Church was read at the graveside by Rev. Dr Flynn.

A WINDFALL FROM AMERICA.
It is not often that persons possessing less than their fair share of this world's goods wake up some fine morning and find themselves richer by some thousands of pounds. Generally, when it does happen the circumstances are somewhat dramatic, and probably often painful. Information was circulated on Saturday that four people residing in New South Wales had between them come in to over £20,000. It is through the efforts of Detective-Inspector Bleakmore, of the San Fancisco police force, that the facts have been, brought to light. On December 1, the day following the American Thanksgiving Festival, Stephen Cunningham, a resident of San Fran cisco, America, was found dead in his lodgings, which were situated in the poorer portion of the city. To all appearances the unfortunate man was a pauper, and without a penny in the world. Nevertheless he was never seen to do any work. He had been a man of a reserved nature, seldom speaking to anyone, or making friends. As soon as the body was discovered inquiries were set on foot as to the identity of the deceased, and, as is usual in the States, a most searching inquiry was made into the circumstances surrounding a death which was peculiar. Every effort was made to connect the deceased with relatives and to ascertain whether the dead person possessed any property. It fell to the lot of Detective-Inspector Bleakmore to make the necessary inquiry and investigations. His first stop was to search the room occupied by the deceased up to the time of his death. This was situate in a miserable structure in the slum portion of San Francisco. Judging by appearances Cunningham must have lived the life almost of a hermit. Nothing about him could be ascertained in the locality, and no one had ever seen the deceased man in conversation. Strewn over the floor wore a lot of newspapers, the dates on which went back 10 years ago. There were old clothes, pieces of food, crusts of bread, and potato skins lying about the place. The Coroner's inquiry showed, that Cunningham must have almost starved himself, as the medical authorities of San Francisco certified that the cause of death was that Cunningham had eaten a meal the day previous to his death, which had proved too much for the impoverished state of his health. When the detective made a search of the deceased's room some astonishing features presented themselves. The first item of interest was the discovery of two bank books, showing that in 1903 Cunningham had deposited £3200 to his credit. Then other bank books were discovered, as well as about a dozen mortgage deeds in respect of the most valuable property in San Francisco. These represented a large sum of money. The next business was to connect the deceased with any relatives, if such existed. The starting point in this direction was furnished by several bundles of tailor's chalk that were found in the room occupied by Cunningham. The San Francisco Tailors' Union was communicated with, and as a result of the detectives' inquiries, a man was found who said he knew the deceased, having, with a man named John Westaway, worked for Cunningham as an assistant tailor in a shop in Hunter-street, Newcastle, New South Wales. Another tailor was found who stated that Cunningham had made a lot of money during the gold fields boom in 1898, but that Westaway had died, and that Cunningham had gone to County Clare, in Ireland. Inquiries in this direction did not provide information, and there the matter remained for a little time. The detective went back again to the old room in the hope of finding some further clue. His efforts were rewarded, but only by accident. Amongst the debris a small piece of dirty paper was dis covered, which had in broken sentences the following words upon it: — "Clifton, Woodville, 1890.— -Dear Brother. . . Five hours' sail from Sydney to Raymond Terrace, where you will find us all right. ... I live 12 miles from Mickie and Pat. . children. . . Mary learns dressmaking, and Lizzie is teaching for the Government." This led the officer to make inquiries in Australia, and accordingly the detective sailed in the Aorangi, which arrived in Sydney on Tuesday last. He went to Newcastle immediately by the boat which left Sydney for Newcastle at 11 o'clock the same night. From in formation, supplied by the local police, "Mickie" and "Pat," 'brothers of the deceased, were traced, and found at Miller's Forest. When the object of the officer's visit was explained, he was taken by the brothers to one of their sisters, a Mrs Wills, of Berry Park, which was a mile or two away. There the locality of the other member of the family was finally set at rest. She was found to be Mrs Katherine Kane, residing with her husband, a bootmaker, in No 5 Kennedy-street, just off Riley street, and near to William-street, Sydney. When seen by a press representative, Mr Kane, who is a very old and much respected resident in the neighbourhood, said there was no doubt that the story was correct. Though it was a painful business they would be very thankful for their share, which would be of great assistance now in their old age. On the other hand the detective is quite certain that he has discovered the rightful owners to the property left by Stephen Cunningham.

SCHOOL INSPECTOR CANNY
DROWNED IN BRISBANE RIVER.
Great surprise and regret were expressed throughout Brisbane on Wednesday, when it became known that the body of Inspector J. A. Canny, of the Department of Public Instruction, had been found floating in the river near the Victoria Bridge. At 10 a.m. he had been seen on the river bank, where he had descended from William-street, in the vicinity of the new morgue. He had mentioned to the caretaker of the morgue how pleasant and cool it was there, and he had removed his coat, apparently for comfort. Half an hour later, while filling his watercart at the standpipe, an employee of the council saw a body, that of Mr. Canny, floating in the water. An alarm was raised, and the remains were removed to the morgue. The deceased's coat was found hanging where he had placed it on the railing of the landing stage. An examination of the papers in the pockets of the coat disclosed the fact that deceased, who had been ailing for some time, desired to end his life. Owing to the bad state of his health Inspector Canny was not able to preside over the recent examinations, and it is significant of his great popularity that during his illness he was visited constantly by his col leagues, all of whom held him in the highest respect. A post-mortem examination was made on Wednesday night by Dr. Dods {Government medical officer), and it revealed that death was due to drowning. A magisterial inquiry will be held in due course.

The late Mr. Canny was born in County Clare, Ireland, on November 17, 1848. He was trained in the teaching profession in his native country, which he left for Queensland in 1862. On October 1, five years later, he was appointed an assistant teacher on probation in the South Brisbane State School, and in November of the same year he was transferred to the Normal school. in March, 1868, he was again moved, this time to Warwick, and three months afterwards he was admitted as an assistant teacher, with classification 3B, to the Warwick school. His next step was an appointment on April 1, 1870, as acting head teacher of the Warwick school, and exactly a year later he became the head teacher of this school. He was promoted to the status of a head teacher, class 2, division B, on June 1, 1874, and in the following year he was appointed head teacher of the Warwick West School. That position he held till December 31, 1879, but during that time he was, in June, 1877, promoted to class 2. division-1. In July, 1887, he was transferred to the Central City school for boys in Townsville, as, headmaster. January 1, 1889, saw him appointed district inspector of schools by the department. During the time he was an inspector he served practically throughout the State, but his headquarters for the last two years have been in Brisbane.

The late Mr. Canny had been married for many years, his wife having been also been born in Ireland. He leaves three daughters and a son, the latter being manager of the Bank of North Queensland in Sydney. One of his daughters is at the present time an assistant teacher in the service, being engaged in one of the metropolitan schools. His wife was an Irish-trained teacher, and she has also had long service under the Queensland Department, she was the head teacher of the Warwick West girls' school at the time the late Mr. Canny was headmaster there. She was also head of the Townsville girls' school when he held a similar position in the boys' school. This position she resigned on his appointment as an inspector.

Some time ago the deceased gentleman wrote an essay on Australia, embodying a strong spirit of patriot ism for the land of his adoption. In which he bad spent over 50 years of his life. So highly did the department think of that essay that it has been introduced into the fifth reading books—which are now being pre pared for use in the schools. This was one of the late Mr. Canny's most recent productions. According to the Minister, the essay is written in a fine literary style, and is admirably adapted for the younger generations.

The late Mr. Canny was a member of the committee who drew up the new reading books, and he was also a member of the committee responsible for the scriptural lessons. He was a prominent member of the Queensland Irish Association, and his death is an almost irreparable loss to that body. His patriotism to Queensland as so deep-rooted that last, year the Government, offered to send him to Ireland to seek immigrants, but he declined on account of his age. Queensland had no better champion, and no more loyal citizen than J. A. Canny, and in his death she has sustained a great loss.

Mr. Canny for some time has suffered from the effects of a serious sunstroke, and ever since, it is said, he has been in a peculiar frame of mind respecting light and its effects upon him. The following letter was found in Mr. Camay's pocket :—"For some time past I have been utterly broken in health and spirit ; I have no hope of recovering, and never again will be able to do useful work. Under such conditions life is a burden, and is a serious nuisance to myself, wife and children."

DEATH OF FATHER MCDONOUGH.
The Rev. Father Stephen Henry McDonough died at the Roman Catholic Presbytery, Mount Morgan, at two o'clock yesterday morning. Father M'Donough was about seventy-three years of age and was well known throughout Queensland, having worked first in the south, then in the north, and lastly in the Central Division. He arrived in Brisbane on the 1st of January, 1866, and had to his credit the longest term of service of any priest in Queens- land. The deceased clergyman was in turn parish priest of Warwick, Charters Towers, Bowen, Cooktown, Clermont, and Emerald, while for many years he occupied the important position of administrator of the Roman Catholic Cathedral in Rockhampton under the late Bishop Cani. About three years ago Bishop Duhig invited Father M'Donough to relinquish work in the Central-west, where the night train travelling was telling on his health, and take up duty at Mount Morgan. He accepted the invitation and has laboured at Mount Morgan ever since. Father M’Donough was the son of a medical man who practised his profession at Innis, county Clare, Ireland. At an early age he was sent to a preparatory college, from which he passed to the University of Liege, Belgium, where he completed his studies for the priesthood. He volunteered for the Queensland mission and was accepted by the late Bishop O'Quinn of Brisbane. At the time of the creation of the Roman Catholic diocese of Rockhampton he was working within its boundaries and elected to remain under the jurisdiction of Bishop Cani. For years past his health has been precarious; but it was only in the last week that he took a very serious turn for the worse. Bishop Duhig went to Mount Morgan on Thursday last to visit him and remained with him until Friday. There are two sisters of the late Father M'Donough living in Queensland. One is Mrs. Cleary, of Brisbane, the other is Mrs. Wood, of War wick. The body will be brought to Rockhampton by train this morning, and the funeral will take place from St. Josephs Cathedral after a solemn requiem mass which is to be celebrated at ten o'clock in the forenoon.

MR JAMES HIGGINS. Considerable regret will be occasioned throughout Albury and district, especially amongst old residents, by the news of the death of Mr James Higgins, which occurred at the residence of his son-in-law, Mr George Quirk, Wodonga, on Monday night. Mr Higgins had not been in very good health of late, but until a few weeks ago he had been about as usual. However, although he had lost none of his old geniality. Mr Higgins had not been in very good health since an accident he met with a couple of years ago. The immediate cause of death was pneumonia. The deceased gentleman was a native of County Clare (Ireland) was 72 years of age, and a colonist of 70 years' standing. he came out to this country with his parents when he was a child of two years, and spent some time in South Australia, where he was: at one time station manager for R. O. Bagot, the well-known squatter and racing man. Always an enthusiast amongst horses, the late Mr Higgins was connected with several well-known stables in that State. Subsequently he came over here, and his association with these parts dated back close on forty years. He was engaged in the hotel-keeping business at Yarrara, near Germanton, and also kept the old Rose hotel, at Albury, and the Howlong and Mill hotels. Relinquishing that business, he subsequently engaged in the butchering trade in Albury. In later years he was appointed herdsman to the Albury Municipal Council, and remained in that position for about sixteen years. Failing health necessitated his resignation a couple of years ago, and since then he had been living in quiet retirement with his married daughters at Brockleaby and Wodonga respectively. The late Mr Higgins was a man of sterling character, and highly esteemed by all who knew him. His wife predeceased him many years ago, but a grown-up family of three daughters and two sons survive. The daughters are Mrs J. Y. Bell, of "Fairfield," Sydney; Mrs Arthur Andrews, of "Milrea," Brockleaby; and Mrs George Quirk, Wodonga. The sons are Mr Jas. Higgins (Northcote Melbourne), and Mr Francis ("Gus") Higgins (Queensland). The funeral took place on Wednesday morning, the cortege leaving the residence of his son-in-law, Mr George Quirk, Wodonga, at 10 a.m. for the Albury cemetery.

MR. M. MULQUEENY.
Another old resident of this district in Mr. Michael Mulqueeny passed away on Thursday at the residence of his son in the east end of the town, at the ripe age of 74. The deceased had been in feeble health for some years. He was born in County Clare, Ireland, and emigrated to Australia when a young man. He followed the avocation of a farmer, doing a bit of racing at intervals. He owned and raced several horses, the best of them being Skylark, by Jersey--a local champion in his day. He won innumerably races with this horse ; indeed, for some years he provided an income for his owner, who usually rode the horse himself. He also raced Aaron (afterwards called Thunderbolt), a full brother to Skylark, but he was a rogue, and not a patch on his brother. Mr. Mulqueeny was a fair judge of racing, a sport of which he was very fond. He leaves a large family, all of whom reside in the district.

MR. MICHAEL MULQUEENY.
In a short notice in last issue we refer- red to the death of one of our pioneer settlers. We refer to Mr. Michael Mulqueeny. The following additional particulars have been supplied to us. The late Mr. Mulqueeny was born in County Clare, Ireland, in 1838. In 1856, being then 18 years of age, he determined to try his fortune in Australia, and sailed in the ship Monsoon, which arrived in Port Adelaide in the same year. On his arrival he got work at Willunga, and remained there, for about two years. In 1858 he came overland to Mount Gambier with a team of bullocks. He had for his companions on the trip the late Messrs. John McIvor and Michael Fitzgerald. Mr. McIvor was the father of the late Mr. Sandy McIvor, who was well known for many years in connection with Mr. A. P. Sutton's Dismal Swamp station. On arriving in Mount Gambier he worked for a couple of years for Mr. John Barry, at Square Mile. He then secured a block of land near Kalangadoo, married, and brought up a family of ten--five sons and five daughters, who all survive him. Mr. Mulquecny was always fond of a good horse, and soon after arriving in the district he purchased a well-bred mare, and from her secured two well-known performers, namely, Skylark and Thunderbolt. Mr. Mulqueeny won many races with these horses in the South-East and Western, District of Victoria. Young Skylark, son of old Skylark, was another horse owned by Mr. Mulqueeny, that was often seen on the early day race courses, sporting the well-known green jacket. But he was not so successful as his sire, and did not win many races for his owner. On being retired from racing he proved very successful as a stud horse. Another good horse that raced in the district in the early days was Banjo. This horse was bred by Mr. Adam Smith, of Hynam, and was purchased from him by Mr. Mulqueeny. He won a great number of races ridden by Johnny Kearny, a particular friend of the deceased. The funeral of the deceased took place on Saturday last, and was largely attended, over 50 traps joining in the cortege. The Rev. Father Gerard conducted the funeral service.

The death took place at Church-street, Windsor, on Monday last of Mrs Moran, at the age of 80 years. The old lady had been suffering for some time, and bronchitis was the immediate cause of death. She was a native of County Clare, Ireland, came to Australia as a single woman 59 years ago, and was married in St. Mary's Cathedral. Her husband died 45 years ago and was buried in the old Devonshire-street, cemetery, Sydney. There were three sons, two of whom are dead, Mr Daniel Moran, a resident of this district, being the only survivor of the family. The deceased was a very devout member of her church, and was greatly beloved. The funeral took place on Tuesday, the remains being laid to rest in St Matthew's R.C cemetery. Rev. Father McDonnell officiated, and Mr Chandler was the undertaker.

CROSSED THE BAR. It is with sincere sorrow that the death is re- corded of Mr Paul (Daniel) Minogue (an old pioneer), late of Drik Drik and "Drumborg," who passed away in peace at his late residence on Saturday, May 18, at the ripe old age of 76 years. He was truly an old pioneer, and with one exception the oldest in this district. Born in County Clare, Ireland. Mr Minogue, as a boy five years of age, arrived in Portland Bay with his parents in the ship "Agricola," the first immigrant ship to reach Portland. This was in the year 1841. He was the eldest son of the late Simon Minogue, of "Wattle Hill," Portland. Mr Minogue spent most of his life in the Portland district, being in his youth occupied with his father in farming pursuits. In the early digging days he, with a friend, started with two bullock teams for Melbourne, and there entered into the carrying trade conveying goods to the Bendigo goldfield. At that time it cost £100 per ton to get goods up to the gold- fields from Melbourne. After a time he drifted back to Portland, and again took to farming as an occupation. Eventually he married and settled down on a farm of his own at Drik Drik, where he resided for many years and brought up a family in comfort, until misfortune came his way, when he sold out, and eventually went to "Drumborg" to reside. In his youth the deceased was a horseman of no mean order, who piloted some good horses as winners past the post on the old Portland racecourse. His remains were interred in the Heywood cemetery on Monday, May 20, and were followed by a large concourse of sorrowing friends and relatives.

Death of Mr. Christoph Kuder.
Another old Resident Departed.
FOR some little time past it was recognised that Mr. Christoph Kuder, licensee of the Union Hotel, was rapidly failing in health, but it was not generally thought the time of departure from Here to Hence was so near. It was quite of recent date that Mr. Kuder found he was not able to get about as readily as in times past, and he appeared to be not seriously ill until Friday, the 28th ult., when he took to his bed. Conditions became more serious, and all members of the family within hail were summoned. On Monday evening it was observed Mr. Kuder was sinking, and at 7 o'clock, after recognising his youngest daughter and his son Joe, he fell into a sleep from which he never awakened, life being pronounced extinct at 12.45 a.m. the date of deceased's 64th birthday. The unexpected death came as a great shock to the community; although Mr. Kuder had entered but little into the public life of the town, the family had, and were well-known in many directions of usefulness-the girls in connection with the Church and the boys in sport. Many expressions of sympathy poured upon the bereaved family during the day, and this was further intensified when the solemn cortege moved away at 4.30 p.m., the Foresters, of which body Mr. Kuder was a foundation member, and a P.CR., mustering to the number of 37. The coffin was buried in beautiful wreaths and flowers. The Rev. Father Plormel officiated at the grave, and with his consent the beautiful funeral oration of the A.O.F. WBB impressively read by Bro. R. H. Clarke, P.C.R.

The everlasting wreaths were from Messrs R. A. and H. C. Parnell, Mr. and Mrs. Mathews and family (Killarney), Mrs. McLoughlin and family, Messrs. W. Wilson and J. Busby, the officers and members of "Court Friar Tuck," 6587, A.O.F.. Mrs. A. Lynch and family, Mr. H. O. Mcrnane, Mrs. J. Croniti, Mr. D. Stibbards, Mr. and Mrs. O. Devery and family, Mr. and Mrs. W. J. O'Regan and family, Mr. and Mrs. Pellow, Mr. and Mrs. Lennon and family; floral wreaths from Mrs. Walduck, Mr. and Mrs. Woolley, Mrs. Geo. Richardson, Mrs. Kemp, son and daughters, and others.

Christoph Kuder was born at Willburgh, Wurtenburg, Germany, midnight July 2nd, 1848, and came out with his parents under the land order system to Brisbane, when he was nine years of age. The German immigrants (very few of whom could speak a word of English) made for the Darling Downs, where to-day many of their descendants have comfortable homesteads, while the few remaining old people are departing gradually (as will be observed in almost every issue of the "Queensland Times" and "Toowoomba Chronicle"). The deceased's parents worked on Jondaryan and other stations for some years, young Christoph in the meantime attending school and learning English, until in a few years he could speak the language fluently. As a youth Mr. Kuder sought for himself and found a temporary resting place on the Dawson river. Here he entered into the occupation of Mr. Beatty, of Duaringa, and used to take wool to Westwood, the then terminus of the Central railway line, taking back supplies. He was married on 16th October, 1876, by Dean Murley, in Rockhampton, to Mary Ann Hinchey, from County Clare, Ireland, who accompanied her husband to his home at Duaringa. Mr. Kuder used to tell some stirring anecdotes of the great Dawson flood, where nearly every carrier and settler who subsequently went out west, lost their all and had practically to make a fresh start. As the line progressed west ward so did Mr. and Mrs. Kuder, a young family springing round them. Mr. Kuder followed carrying, and at Pine Hill carried away the Shakspeare Hotel, and a goodly portion of the Union hotel-the house in which, as a coincidence, he died-to Barcaldine. A long stay was made at Bogas., and here "Court Friar Tuck," A. O. Foresters, was inaugurated on 18th May, 1883, Mr. Kuder being a foundation member. At Alice Mr. Kuder had the carrying of timber to a sawmill (the proprietor's name we forget) and as a return the prepared material, which found a very ready market west. As soon as Barcaldine opened Mr. Kuder entered the service of Mr. Hugh Savage, storekeeper, and ran a five-horse dray along the railway line. One could always know when "Christie" returned to town by the loud cracking of his whip. An accident in 1889, caused partial paralysis of the spine, and deceased was never able again to undertake hard physical labor. In 1891 he started dairying, and continued this until 1900, when he became licensee of the Union Hotel, which he held up to the time of his death. Deceased was never the same man since he was thrown from his cart 23 years ago. Deceased's health kept tolerably fair, although he had never the proper use of his hands, and Bright's disease of the kidneys aided his dissolution. He left four sons and five daughters; none of the sons are married, but of the daughters three, are married, viz.: - Mrs. Worslsy, Mrs. Geraghty (Longreach), and Mrs. Mallory. All the family were present at the funeral, save two sons, who were unable to reach town in time, one being in Sydney and the other somewhere at the back of Dalgi.

MRS. FENNESSEY.
There passed away at her home "The Bangalows,'' at Shark Creek, on Sunday evening, the wife of Mr. Fennessey, from senile decay. The deceased who was 80 years of age was born at County Clare, Ireland, and was a daughter of the late P. McDonnell of, Ireland, and came to Sydney in 1862 and settled there for some 10 years, when she came to the Clarence and took up her residence with her husband, who had acquired land in this centre. Only those who have experienced the trials and drawbacks of the pioneering days know what difficulties the early settlers had to work under, and the deceased with her husband had their full share. Many interesting incidents have been given by Mrs. Fennessey of the early days of Shark Creek and Maclean, when the latter place was only a small settlement. Since six years ago, Mrs. Fennessey in company with her husband retired from farming pursuits, and lived a retired life with their son John, who had purchased the Bangalow property from them, where she continued to reside until the time of her death. The deceased leaves four daughters and two sons to mourn her loss, viz., Mrs. J. Gallagher, J. Connolley, of Shark Creek, Mrs. E. (?) er, of Macleay River, and Mrs. T. F. Ryan of Maclean, and Mr. J. B. Fennessey, of "The Bangalows," Shark Creek. Deceased was also a sister of Mr. M. McDonnell, of Shark Creek.

When a little girl of 15, named Cissie Haugh, whom the captain had adopted, and who resided with her parents in Kilrush, went as usual to call him, about 8 o'clock, she found that he was dead in bed, his breast being covered with blood. When Dr. Counishan, J.P., arrived he found that life had been extinct for some hours. It is recalled that three months ago Captain Hall was connected with another tragic shooting affair. His house-keeper, a girl named Delonghery, whom he had brought up and regarded as a daughter, met her death by a shot from his revolver. From his evidence at the inquest on the girl it appeared that when the captain, who was head water bailiff on the Shannon, was going on duty Miss Deloughery tried to prevent him from taking his revolver as was his wont, fearing he would fall from his bicycle and injure himself, and that in a friendly and semi playful scuttle for possession the weapon lodged its contents in the girl's breast, causing instant death. This event had a great effect on Captain Hall, who soon afterwards left Limerick, the scene of the tragedy, and took Cappagh Lodge for the season. At the inquest held last evening the jury found that Captain Hall died from a revolver shot wound, self-inflicted, but whether accidentally or deliberately they were unable to say. Medical evidence was to the effect that his heart was unsound and that he had suffered from insomnia, while the doctor suggested that recent events might have affected his mental condition. Mrs. De Conrey Ireland, Captain Hall's sister, said her brother had been greatly disturbed by the fatal gun accident to his housekeeper at the end of February. Another revolver tragedy, it is stated, occurred some years ago, when Captain Hall's bailiff was shot under mysterious circumstances.

Death of Mrs. M. Manning.
Another link in the chain of human associations between the Dubbo of the past and present has been severed by the death of Mrs. Margaret Manning (relict of the late Mr. Martin Manning, formerly of the "Dispatch"), who passed away peacefully at her residence at 9.30 yesterday morning. The lady was 74 years of age, and was a native of Cahir, County Clare, Ireland, her maiden name being McInerney. Her parents came out to Australia when she was 12 years of age and settled at Ipswich, Queensland, and it was at that township that her marriage took place. Some years later, when the late Messrs. Tom and Martin Manning came west of the Mountains and founded the Dubbo "Dispatch" (sometime in the sixties), she accompanied them, and for the rest of her life resided in Dubbo. Necessarily she saw many changes in the town and district, but being of a very retiring nature she took no prominent part in social affairs. She was, however, a devoted daughter of her church, and a woman of deep human sympathies and benevolence, and many a poor soul could speak of her benefactions. Her husband predeceased her by ten years, and since his death her habits of life were more retiring than ever. Generally speaking, her health was good up to a few months of her demise, but she was called upon to endure a severe affliction of the eyes, necessitating an operation. She was about within a week of her end, and passed away painlessly from breakup of the system. The late Mr. and Mrs. Manning had a family of five sons and three daughters. One boy died in infancy. Mr. Herbert and Mr. Edmund died some years ago, and the surviving sons are Mr. Thomas Manning, of the Customs Department, Sydney, and Mr. Joseph Manning, of Dubbo. The daughters are Misses Eva, Margaret and Mollie. The coffin was taken to St. Brigid's Church this morning, and after a brief service the remains were taken to the place of interment in the family vault in the Roman Catholic portion of the Dubbo cemetery. The Rev. Dr. Brophy said the final prayers. The funeral was a very large one, and nearly every family in the district was represented in order to pay its last tribute to the memory of one so well-known and respected. The mortuary arrangements were in the hands of Mr. J. R. Tighe.
