The death took place at the residence of Mrs England, Neurea, of a very old and well-known resident of the district in the person of Mrs. Betsy Slavin, at the age of 74 years. The deceased lady, who had been ailing for the past 12 months, had resided in this district for a great number of years, during which time she made many friends, who will be sorry to hear of her demise. She is survived by a grown up family of three sons and two daughters, the former being Messrs John and Arthur (Neurea), and Edward (Sydney). The daughters are Mesdames C. Rutter (Forbes), and McAndrew (Wellington.) The remains were encased in a polished maple casket, silver mounted, and laid to rest in the Church of England portion of the local cemetery this after noon, the Rev. Mr. Carr leading the services at the graveside. Mr. C. J. Shakespeare had charge of the funeral arrangements
