Mr. Justice BUNDEY, the most genuinely [and perhaps most deservedly] popular man in S.A., will complete his 63rd year on Wednesday next [Jan 30]. He is the only member of the Adelaide Supreme Court Bench who has kept rigidly out of all outside possibilities of complication, and who lives up to the olden ideal of a Judge. Justices WAY and BOUCANT are both interested in squatting, lodges, and so on, while WAY butterflies round in society, and misses no opportunity of presiding over something.

The circumstances attending the suicide of Frank STEN, a Swedish miner on the Normandy [near Bowen, Q.] are worth noting. STEN, a well educated man had found a few decent nuggets some time ago, but of late had been abandoned by Fortune. A proud man, he could ask no one for help, and so determined to end the game--said ending being effected per medium of a plug of dynamite placed in his mouth and exploded by fuse.

James MINIFIE, Melbourne flour-miller and good fellow, died last week, aged 52. An Englishman who has specialised in milling from an early age--his family had been milling for several generations--he came to Victoria as technical boss for W.T. CADWALLADER, of Maryborough, later passing to better jobs with the Melbourne Milling Co. and KIMPTON and Sons. A few years back he started rolls of his own, and they soon began to grind him out more than a crust. Himself a tall, soldierly-looking man, he has left a name that figures prominently in Australian war records. His two sons, Richard and James MINIFIE, were among the high spirited youths who 'planed over the German lines and indulged in audacious pranks at the expense of anything that was worth a bomb or machine-gun fire. James had to retire after much brilliant work, but Richard continued merrily until the finish, and came home with a bagful of decorations.

The CLINCH family, of Hobart, is not the only one that has supplied two Rhodes scholars. In 1912 Alfred ROBSON, of Sydney, got the appointment and four years later his brother Leonard followed in his steps. They are sons of James ROBSON, of the Treasury, and nephews of the late Major-General HOLMES, and both took a hand in the Big Trouble, Leonard, who held a commission in the A.I.F. collecting an M.C.

Mrs Ann CROWE, who gave Florence NIGHTINGALE a hand in the Crimea, slipped out to the Beyond last week at her home at Elsternwick [Vic] after rounding off 93 years. Her husband who went through the Crimea and Indian Mutiny, lived on till two years ago. Mrs CROWE was born in Nova Scotia, and was a lovable old soul who never lagged superfluous. Her son George, head of the Commonwealth Government's harness factory, was the chief mourner at Brighton cemetery when the mound was heaped over her.

The estate of Alfred HAWLEY, a partner in the Sydney firm of HOLDSWORTH, MacPHERSON and Co., has been valued at 66,977 in London and 52,500 in Sydney. The name of HAWLEY is nearly a century old in commercial Sydney. In the mid-'forties Alfred HAWLEY and Co. were in the iron trade in George-Street, on a site now occupied by FARMER'S. Henry HOLDSWORTH was a manager there, and John MacPHERSON bookkeeper.

" Steve HART": In Forbes [N..S.W.] cemetery, sleeping within a stone's throw of each other lie Gip JONES, the most amazing purse-trick "player" Australia ever saw; Ben HALL the bushranger; Ned KELLY'S sister Kate. Kate was married a FORBES drover, and bore one son, who gave his life in the Great War.

"Wallabaloolah": In the electoral roll for Yass [N.S.W.] the SMITHS number 51, while the DAVISES muster 70. Most of these DAVISES are descended from one of the first white women to cross the ranges between Gunning and Yass. She and her husband settled in the district in 1821. The old lady lived to be 113, and left over 400 descendants. At the recent Historical Museum at Yass there was a painting of her, and half the population visited it to see what their Great-grandmother looked like.

Alexander KENNEDY, now living in Brisbane, is one of the oldest pioneers of the north-west of the Northern State. Born at Perthshire, he came to Banana land in 1860, and was employed as overseer on Rio and Wealwandangie. In 1876 he bought Emmet Downs, on the Barcoo, and, after numerous changes, in 1910 purchased Bushby Park near Cloncurry. He became associated with the late Ernest HENRY, discoverer of the Cloncurry copper-fields, in 1866, and their most successful mine, the Duchess, was sold to the present Hampden Co., in 1907 for 15,000. His wife accompanied him through all his pioneering ventures, living at times 300 miles from the nearest white woman. When they were at Buckingham Downs their provisions had to be carted by team from Normanton, 400 miles away, and it took anything up to six months to a year to do the journey.

Jimmy GOVERNOR was N.S.W. hangman Nosey Bob's [should this be BOB'S, not sure?] 60th patient--which makes an average of under three a year during Nosey's official existence. All the same, the total is big: if Nosey's dead were laid head to foot they would cover a length of at least 100yds.

Thos. Henry PEET, lately deceased, was considered to be the oldest settler in Victoria. He arrived in Tasmania 78 years ago, when two years of age, and landed in Victoria in '40. After varied experiences, including whaling at Portland, he settled at Harrow, where he died. He wrote an autobiography, which will be published shortly.

Thought this may be of interest. Hopping Dick
Among queer town-names published in a recent 'Sydney Mail" mention was made of Hopping Dick. This name was altered some years ago. Originally the place, which is in the Tweed River district, was known as Hopping Dick Creek, after a lame teamster named Dick WOOD. He had a camp on the creek and used to cart supplies to settlers along the border. The camp attracted other teamsters, and in time became a hamlet. As it continued to grow, and was more civilised than it used to be, the residents wanted to change the name to something more euphonious than Hopping Dick and that would still keep the old pioneer in memory. So they called it Limpinwood--a name that was not only pleasant to all concerned, but more respectful to the founder of the village.

Social annals of the West:--
Deep regret was felt at the passing of Mrs. Louise Mary FORBES, widow of Lieut. Col. Charles D'Oyley FORBES, who, with his wife, came to the Westralia in 1885 and played an important part in Perth's social life. Mrs. FORBES was a granddaughter of the Countess de VOLBERT, who fled to Mauritius during the First Revolution. The right to call herself a countess if the BOURBONS return now passes to Mrs. FORBES'S daughter, Mrs A.B. KIDSON.

Mrs GOFF, with son Peter, is packing grips for a jaunt to Los Angeles, California, where she will stay with her daughter, Mrs Stitch ELDER, son Ivan, joint-author of " Not So Innocent," is on his way to the same spot.
