THE LATE MR J A H CHARLES, OF I MUCH MARCLE. We have received this week the following report of the death of Mr J A H Charles, which occured on April -30 last, and was chronicled in our issue at the time. The following extract is from the Northern Star," a New South Wales journal: — A very sad death took place at Mullum- bimby, when there passed away Mr James Alfred Henry Charles, of Ellangowan, near Casino, at the young age of 44 years. Deceased was born in England, and together with his wife and family, came out to Australia about 3 years ago. The unfortu- nate man was taken ill some time ago, and was under the care of Dr De Luca, of Casino. Having partly recovered he came to Byron Bay, where he stayed a few days, after which he betook himself to Brunswick Heads, and he had only been there a week. On Thursday he took a bad turn, and after a short while Dr Ward was summoned. The doctor immediate- ly saw the man was very low, and lost no time in bringing- him to Mullumbimby and placing him in Nurse Skelton's Hospital. Everything medical aid could do was done, but it proved of no avail, and the victim went out to that Great Beyond about one hour after being admitted to the hospital. His eldest daughter, aged 13, was with him on his visit here, while his wife arrived by the evening train the night of his death. Deceas leaves a young widow and five children (all girls) to fight the battle of life and mourn the loss of an ardent bread- winner. The funeral took place on Friday, and the deceased being a member of the Man- chester Unity of Oddfellows of Casino, a number of local brethren headed the cortege. A short service was held in the Church of England by the Rev H. J. Velvin, while at the graveside the same rev. gentleman officiat- ed, being supplemented by P.D.G.M. Bro. Handel reading the Oddfellows' service. Deceased on arrival in this country migrated to Casino, where he purchased a smltll farm, but after working it for a while, did no good, and vacated it. He was recently engaged in dairying pursuits in working a farm on the shares outside outside of Casino.
