They then returned to Ireland, but after a year at Home they were induced to try New Zealand on account of Mrs Allely's health, as she found the climatic conditions of Ireland too severe.

She has high ideals of what a Christian should be, always ready to hep a neighbour and never lacking in true Irish hospitality.

BARROW A feeling of profound regret was evinced on Saturday when it became known that Mr Charles Barrow, a well-known and highly esteemed settler, had succumbed at an eariy hour that morning to the prevailing epidemic. Mr Barrow had complained on Monday morning last of feeling unwell, and on the advice of his medical adviser, had gone to bed, but unfortunately his condition gradually became worse, and he passed away peacefully at the time stated. The deceased gentleman, who was 71 years of age at the time of his death, had an interesting career. He was one of the first Europeans born in Wellington, having first seen the light of day in what now is the capital city of New Zealand as far back as 1848, his parents having arrived by the Aurora, one of the first ships. At the age of 18 young Barrow joined Captain Buck's cavalry troop, and took part in the Taranaki campaign against the Maoris. At the battle of Te Ngutu-O-Te Manu, where Captain Buck and Major von Tempsky fell, he was despatch rider for the former officer. At the time of the Te Whiti trouble Mr Barrow was manager of the Tokaora Estate, and took an active part in quelling the incipient rebellion. Later on he settled in Hawera, where, in 1879, he married. In 1881 he removed to Otakeho, being one of the first to take up land on the Waimate Plains. Here he resided until 1902, when he came to the Bay of Plenty, and took up a farm on No. 1 Road, Te Puke, where he lived until a short time ago, when he disposed of the property, and settled in the township. Mr Barrow took a keen interest in stock-raising, and was regarded as an excellent judge of draught horses, a class which he judged at numerous Shows throughout the North Island. During his residence in this district, he took an active part in the affairs of the Agricultural and Pastoral Association, and was also, for some time, a member and chairman of the Road Board. A genial and good-hearted man, he will be much missed by all who knew him. He leaves a widow and five sons - Alec (who lives at Raetihi), Douglas, Graham, Walter, and Angus. Another son, Norman was killed in France. The funeral took place to-day, and was attended by a concourse of mourners. The service at the graveside was conducted by the Rev. Thos. Scott.

BIRD - THE PASSING OF AN OLD SETTLER. The death of Mrs Sarah BIRD, which took place at Paengaroa last week removed one who had passed through all the trials and hardships that were inseparable from the lives of the early pioneers. The deceased lady was born in Canada, where she married, and arrived at Port Lyttelton in the early sixties by the good ship Mermaid. Conveyances being decidedly scarce in those days, she had to walk over the Port Hills to Christchurch. From Christchurch she went to a station in North Canterbury, the means of transit being a bullock dray. From here she proceeded to Geraldine, the journey, in which a bullock dray was again used, occupying twelve days. After living at the latter place for a number of years, she came to the North Island and settled at Katikati, and later removed to No. 2 Road, Te Puke. Here she made the first bread offered for sale in the district, the 'staff of life' being baked in camp ovens. The late Mrs Bird was widely known and highly respected in the early days. Since then she has lived a retired and useful life. Her husband, who was for some time a member of the Te Puke Road Board, died in 1900. She leaves a family of three sons and one daughter (Mrs. J. McGhie), 39 grandchildren, and 33 greatgrandchildren, Three grandsons are at the front in France, and one was killed at Galiipoli. The funeral, which took place on Saturday, was largely attended.

CHAPMAN - SAD DROWNING FATALITY AT THE PAPAMOA BEACH. Quite a gloom pervaded the community last evening when it became known that Mr Harold Chapman, the only surviving son of the Rev. J. W. and Mrs Chapman had lost his life whilst bathing. From the details to hand, it appears that the deceased lad, with his sister, Miis Mollie Chapman, were spending the day at the Papamoa beach with some friends. In the afternoon several of the young men present — P. and S Vercoe, E Morton, Garland, A. Snodgrass, and H. Chapman went in for a swim. Garland and Snodgrass went out the furthest, Chapman being behind them, a little to the left, the others being nearer the shore. The two former were enjoying themselves in the breakers, when they heard a cry for help, and on looking round saw Chapman apparently in difficulties. They hastened to his assistance, and found him helpless. They caught hold of him, and endeavoured to bring him to land, but a strong tide was running, and they could make no progress. Several times they lost their hold, and they were becoming increasingly exhausted with the struggle. At length Chapman slipped from their grasp and disappeared, and the would be rescuers, realising that they were in danger of losing their own lives, had to make for for the shore, which they reached with difficulty. Another attempt to reach the spot where Chapman had sunk was made by Garland and Morton, but they could make no headway in the heavy sea, and were forced to give up. An attempt was then made on horseback, but with the same result, News of the fatality was brought into town by Mr Morton, and the Rev. Chapman, Dr MacFarlane, and Constable Stackpoole proceeded to the scene of the tragedy. No trace of the unfortunate lad, however, was to be found. Parties also patrolled the beach throughout the night in the hope of recovering the body, but without success. Needless to say the deepest sympathy is felt with Mr and Mrs Chapman and family in the loss they have sustained. A splendid type of young manhood, the deceased youth, who was nineteen years of age, excelled in all manly sports. He was a fine boxer, footballer, and tennis plaver, being also secretary of the local Tennis Club. For the past twelve months he had been a member of the staff of the Bank of New Zealand, He was popular, with all who knew him, and will be greatly missed by a large circle of friends. [Te Puke Times 2 April 1918, Page 2] LATE DROWNING FATALITY RECOVERY OF DECEASED'S BODY. A feeling of great relief was experienced on Saturday night when it became known that the body of Harold Chapman, who was recently drowned at the Papamoa Beach had been recovered. It was felt that this would tend to alleviate to some extent the distress and anxiety of the bereaved relatives. Since Easter Monday the residents of Papamoa had taken it in turns to patrol the beach daily, but without success, until Saturday afternoon, when the body of deceased was discovered by Mr F.A. Turner. It was at once brought into town, and on Sunday morning an enquiry regarding the fatality was held by the Coroner, Mr C.Lally. Evidence was given by Messrs Turner, Phillip Vercoe, Ernest Morton, Archie Snodgrass, and Dr MacFarlane, but no new facts were disclosed. The Coroner found "That the said Harold Gordon Chapman, on the 1st day of April, 1918, in the sea near Papamoa Beach, was accidentally drowned. No blame was attachable to anyone. The funeral, which took place in the afternoon, was one of the largest that has been seen in the district, mourners being present from far and near. Prior to the cortege leaving for the cemetery, a most impressive service was conducted in St. John's Church by Archdeacon Tuke of Tauranga, who also read the burial service at the graveside.

DUMBLETON Mr Vesey Stewart has been informed by cable sent by his daughter, Mrs Dumbleton, that her eldest son Douglas, the former's grandson, was killed in action on October 12th. Some delay has occurred in sending the final announcement, the first cable stating he was missing. The late Douglas Dumbleton who joined the 23rd Reinforcements, was married, but has left no family. His paternal grandfather was the late General Dumbleton, a member of an old Hampshire County family. A cheery letter was received by Mrs Dumbleton from her son since the news of his death reached her, in which he said that he would soon be home again, as the Huns were licked and could not hold out much longer. A letter received under such sad circumstances adds to a loving mother's grief. [Bay Of Plenty Times, Volume XLVI, Issue 6946, 5 December 1917, Page 2]
