Lady FERGUSON who died the other day of cholera, was the third wife of Sir James.

Mr M'CRAE, manager of the Bank of Australia, Adelaide, leaves for England. Mr. Balbernie VAUS, of Maitland, succeeds him at Adelaide.

A supposed pauper, known as Thomas Edgar Vear FARLEY, who died in Melbourne Hospital, is discovered to have left £10,000 worth of property.

The Hon. Mr. PHARAZYN, M.L.C., of N.Z., who was the other day sentenced to an hour-and-a -quarter's imprisonment for having voted twice at one election, is over 80 years of age.

It was Mr Bernal OSBORNE, just deceased, who announced in Parliament his firm resolve to support the Bill for legalizing marriage with a deceased wife's sister because it would enable a man to have only one mother-in-law.

By an unfortunate accident, Miss Kate BLAKENEY, daughter of the Queensland Deputy-Registrar-General, lost her life near Franklyn-Vale [Q], where the young lady was on a visit to the house of Mr P. RICARDO. Miss BLAKENEY was out riding with a party from the station, on a very quiet horse, which, nevertheless, ran away with her. In trying to throw herself off, she was dashed against a tree.

From the Sheerness [Eng] Guardian:--" In the Times of the 23rd November, the death is announced at Surrey Hills, Sydney, N.S.W., of Edwin BRINDLEY, grandson of the late Thomas BRINDLEY, Esq., of Frindsbury, Kent. The firm of Thomas and Joseph BRINDLEY was well known on the Medway, some years ago, as eminent shipbuilders. This firm built some forty-odd ships for the British navy, many of which fought in the great naval encounter off Algiers. The BRINDLEYS also built the famous ship Shannon, which fought the American ship Chesapeake and, after a quarter of an hours' engagement, beat her.

A correspondent says: " You are wrong about Mr. FISHER'S marriage to Miss Ada WARD. It took place not at Brown's River, but at the exquisitely pretty village of St Leonards, about three miles from Launceston, on January 4th, 1879. After the ceremony, the wedding party-- there were but three of us--adjourned to an hotel kept by one HARRIS, a celebrated runner and "sport," where, with mine host and hostess, we pledged the happy pair in "cham." The FISHERS played very soon afterwards at Westbury, Evandale, Longford, and Deloraine, and then left for Hobart. Poor Hugh FISHER ! he was an artist and a gentleman, and it was a bad day for him when the fascinating actress dropped in at the cafe during a round of globe trotting. He had a good billet in a store, a partnership in an illustrated paper, and was stage manager to the local amateur company. Miss WARD engaged him as leading man to come to Australia, but forming the resolution to marry him, did not permit of his appearing on the stage, as she was averse to wed in the profession. Their married life was not a happy one. Hugh was sensitive to a fault, and the lady never overcame her love of admiration and petits soins. They left for England, and from thence went to the Cape together, but Miss WARD returned to London alone. On her way out this time, a reconciliation was affected, and Mr. FISHER was to have followed his wife, but as you already know, he succumbed to the after effects of fever."

At the Penola [SA] Court, Elizabeth HAILES sued Thomas FENNELL, selector, for £250, for breach of promise. According to Lizzie's version, Tom had been very naughty, but Tom denied the soft impeachment. It seems that she desired to place to his credit in their account current a fine healthy boy, in whose features she averred could be distinctly seen resemblance to the said Tom. Tom, however, held a different opinion, and strongly asserted that little Tommy rather resembled his brother George. Not only did Thomas deny that he was the father, but he was so earnestly determined not to be made one inadvertently, that ....ner? than marry Elizabeth he said he would hang himself on a gumtree. There was a good deal of hard swearing in the case; she said he did, and he said he didn't--and the only fact that seemed clearly proved at last was the only one that did not need any proof, namely, that little Tommy was there, alive and kicking, but there was nothing to show how he got there. The case was dismissed, and Tommy is still in search of his Pa.

We read that "Mrs Thomas EVANS, of Strangeways [Vic], is the mother of a female child, which, at seven weeks of age, weighs, clothes and all, just 2½lb. It is healthy, and a perfect model of human beauty. Mrs EVANS, who is a woman of unusual attractions, is well-built, as is her husband.

Ebenezar OLIVER, champion light-weight wrestler of New South Wales, is dead. He went from Sydney to Illawarra to act as referee in a wrestling match, and while under the influence of liquer, saw a horse tied up to the Cricketer's Arms and galloped it furiously round a corner. The animal fell and threw him violently. He died later in the hospital, insensible.

Harry BRACKER, who died at 90 the other day, married a daughter of Richard DINES, of Tulloona and Marewa stations on the McINTYRE. Oldsters still remember Dick DINES as a notable whip who used to drive his family into Toowoomba each year for a summer holiday. Mrs BRACKER, Mrs Malcolm McDOUGALL,sen., and Mrs Willie McDOUGALL [the two latter are Toowoombaites] were daughters.

Joan FERRIER, a member of that handsome Roma clan, is the latest maiden to announce her engagement. The lucky man is Billy POOLE, and, as the news was given out at Southport, where various FERRIERS, BILLINGTONS, BASSETTS and MAYNES [all Roma folk] are holidaying, the westerners arranged a launch picnic by way of celebration.

Early February will see the wedding of one of Brisbane's most eligible men--Neveill HENDERSON, son of the late J.C. HENDERSON and Mrs HENDERSON, of Toowong. The bride is pretty Sydney girl, Joan Hamilton BROWNHILL, daughter of the D.J. BROWNHILLS. The usual vows will be made in St Phillip's Church, Sydney.

Joan OVERELL, the pretty daughter of the Clive OVERELLS, who returned last week from Colombo, where she had been spending some months, gave her girlfriends who waited at the wharf plenty to think about. To begin with, the lass wore a ravishing trouser suit of a kind totally unknown in Brisbane. This created so much interest that for some time they did not notice the brand-new circlet set of diamonds which adorned the finger. Joan designed the frock herself, which probably accounts for her winning the heart of W.B. THOMPSON, a young Scotsman whom she met in Colombo. Mrs A.G. FRY, Joan's aunt, from San Francisco, who spends half her time in Colombo, also was on board. She returns to San Francisco later in the year.

No one has greater passion for blue water than Thomas WELSBY, many times president of the Yacht Club, and skipper of one of the finest launches in the Brisbane River. Tom is the acknowledged authority on Moreton Bay, and every skipper of a pleasure craft possess a copy of WELSBY'S chart. It seems fitting that his daughter Hannah should be marrying a seafaring man--Joseph Walton WILLIAMS, an officer of the R.A.N., who hails from Padstow, Cornwall [Eng.]. The bride-cake was cut on Jan. 27. The elder WELSBY daughter, Winnie, married some years ago Colin CLARK, elder son of James CLARK, Queensland's pearl king, himself the skipper of many a champion yacht.

N.S.W. Jewry lost a leader and Sydney one of its most noted business men when Sep LEVY died at 66. He was a Sydney Grammar boy, and a son of Leg. Councillor L.W. LEVY. His first taste of business was in the West Maitland branch of the David COHEN Co.; later he was managing director in Newcastle and then in Sydney. Tooth's, Nestlés and the Hunter River S.S. Co. were other interests. Three sons were Diggers, and the eldest, Maitland, won the M.C. before he fell.

Salvationists in Sydney will soon be extending a welcome to the last member of the BOOTH family on the active list: Evangeline, seventh child of William BOOTH. Though rising 70, Evangeline BOOTH is still active in the U.S.A., where she holds the rank of Commander-in-Chief. She is entitled also to wear a few decorations--one from the King of Sweden, another from President WILSON, and a third, the Order of the Founder, which is the Salvarmy's own particular V.C. and .D.S.O. rolled into one.

George H. PROSSER, is one of Adelaide's best-known public men for the last 40 years. he is a native, born on the Gawler River 66 years ago, and was a member of the State's Leg. Council for a dozen years, and American Consular Agent for a decade. He had a spell as Mayor of Kensington and Norwood, and then had charge of the Torrens city for 21 years. Nowadays he's chairman of Wallaroo and Mt. Lyell Fertilisers, Ltd. When not working he likes a quiet game of billiards.

[shortened version] Cecil VINDIN, who died the other day, was celebrated as the courtliest man in Inverell, where his tall figure had become a landmark. Only two literates in Australia would have had a chance with him in an illegible signature competition--James LOVE, chairman of the Q.N. Bank, and W.G. LAYTON, Sydney's erstwhile Town Clerk.

That Harry BRACKER is dead is hard to believe. He was born on the Darling Downs in 1844, four years after the LESLIES settled there. His father, whose people had been driven off their estates by Napoleon, brought out some of the first and best Saxon rams for the BETTINGTONS of Brindley Park in the late 'twenties. Dad joined in the rush to the new northern Land of Canaan in 1842, forming Rosenthal for the Aberdeen Company, and there Harry was born--the second white son of the D.D. country. His mother's marriage--she was a ROSS, and her father forged the first plough-share in rural Queensland--was the first celebrated in Queensland between pastoral people. She was a real pioneer. Once she carried the youngster 200 miles over the wild and black-ridden range to Brisbane on a pillow on her saddle bow. Harry grew into a born drover and cattle judge. He knew all the overland cattle routes and all the great pastoralists of his time. He had a wonderful memory, and in his later years would repeat at length conversations with legendry figures like Robert McDOUGALL of Cona and the MORTONS of Derrimut. He spoke of DUMARESQUE and the HOWDENS and the GARDINERS as if they were twentieth-century contemporaries. The ROBERTSONS of the Hill were his bosom pals, but his greatest friend of all was Jimmy TYSON. The two tall bushman figures in cabbage-tree hats and moleskins, usually with a couple of packhorses and a blackboy, once were familiar sights at many waterholes; but if there was a station handy Harry, something of a dandy, would go dancing while Jimmy smoked his pipe in the quiet of the creek. In the boom days of the 'seventies BRACKER became a great Shorthorn and pure-bred man. Every historic Victorian sale saw him on the rails, and often he went north with a thousand pure-bred reds and roams from the best BATES stock in the world. After Robert CLARK died in 1917 he became the Nestor of the Derrimut men--Neil BLACK, the ROBERTSONS, and MORTONS, C.B. FISHER, JENKINS, M H. DEVLIN and a dozen more had all faded into history. Scarcely a big breeder of shorthorns of to-day does not owe something to his tutoring. After 40 years on the roads and on his station at Warroo, he joined MOOREHEAD, Ltd., and managed their stock department. His language, which was of the bush variety, much enlarged the vocabulary of the Enoggera saleyards. Once, when he was over 80, I was talking to him in Brisbane show ring when Arthur LOMAX'S Grand Duke of Clifton broke loose a few yards from us. I went suddenly under a platform which had been erected as the Governor's rostrum. Harry merely opened his umbrella in the astonished Grand Dukes face. He did not even remove his cigar from his mouth. Grand Duke retreated ignominiously. That was the type of man who made western Queensland.
