"Dusky Dinah" (11), Wondai. I am getting on very well with my pen-pals. Will you please give me another pen- pal, either in Africa. India, or Japan? It is a bit cold these mornings. Our dog Rufus is now full grown. Every thing he sees moving he barks at. We had about a quarter of an inch of rain on Friday afternoon. There are four teachers at our school: their names are Mrs. Hickey, Miss Corner, Mr. Langford, and Mr. Radford (the head teacher). My pen-pal, June Major, in England, and I, are exchanging papers with each other.

WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 26,
SUPREME COURT.
IN MATRIMONIAL JURISDICTION.
Before his Honour the Chief Justice
(Mr Justice McCawley)

RUHLE V. RUHLE

Henry Phillip Ruhle, of Pittsworth, labourer, petitioned for the dissolution of his marriage with Lena Elizabethi Kupfer (of Pittsworth), on the ground of her alleged misconduct with George Parson Faux, who was joined as co-defendant. Petitioner submitted evidence that the marriage took place at Pittsworth on July 9, 1913, according to the rites of the Methodist Church and that the parties had lived together at Pittsworth until March, 1922. There were five children of the marriage, of which four survived, the custody of which was asked for by the petitioner.
Mr. E. A. Douglas (instructed by Messrs Chambers M'Nab and M'Nab, agents for Mr. B. J Beirne of Toowoomba) appeared for the petitioner. There was no appearance for the defendant or co-defendant.
Henry Phillip Kuhle, the petitioner, said that long before the final break he had objected to his wife's liking for Faux. His wife left him in March, 1922, and went to live with Faux. January 1923, she had a child of which Faux acknowledged the paternity.
Confirmatory evidence was given by other witnesses.
His Honour found the allegations of misconduct proved and granted a decree nisi, returnable after three months. The petitoner was granted the custody of the children, and costs were given against the co-defendant.

"PRAYED TO WIFE TO RETURN HOME."

HUSBAND SEEKS DIVORCE.

Henry Phillip Ruhle, a laborer, of Pittsworth, asked Chief Justice M'Cawley yesterday to grant him a dissolution of his marriage with Lena Elizabeth Ruhle (nee Kupfer, of Pittsworth), on the grounds of her misconduct with George Parson Faux, of Pittsworth, who was joined as co-defendant There was no appearance of defendant or co-defendant.

The parties were married on July 9, 1913. There were five children. It was stated that the parties lived happily together until 1919, when the co-defendant, who had been to the war, returned to Pittsworth. Defendant, obvious of petitioner's strong objections, persisted in going out with Faux. In March, 1922, defendant left petitioner's farm at Greendale for Pittsworth, and as she did not return that night he followed her to Pittsworth, and found her at the home of co-defendant's mother. "I prayed of her," said petitioner, "to return home, if not for my sake, for that of the children." She blankly refused, saying: "This is my home now."

Petitioner further alleged that defendant misconducted herself with the co-defendant at Toowoomba during the months of March, April, and May, 1922, and since had cohabited continuously with the co-defendant. In January 1923, defendant gave birth to an illegitimate child, of whom co-defendant was the father.

A rule nisi, returnable alter three months, was granted, with costs against the co-defendant. An order for the petitioner to gain custody of three children was also made.

1875 ABERDEEN REMINISCENCES, WEST CHURCH PSALMODY

Alexander Colston, the buirdly retired precentor of the West Parish Kirk, was no more seen : he departed in his seventy-second year. He came from Leith, possessed a full baritone voice, was a mason, and had been a pupil of John Wilson, the first of Scottish vocalists. The new precentor could sing a capital song, and was popular at public dinners, but did not perplex himself about psalmody : its time was not yet. He taught the "Sillerton loons" music, and they led him a sad life. Several of them sang in the West Kirk choir when I was a member of the body —  1843. I once got into disrespect with Colston through a silly bit of pencil work. The choir observed that our Benedict leader was much attracted by a bonny young servant-maid who attended the church, and they wickedly were the cause of putting the following lines from A Lay of the Laterom into our precentor's mouth. The name of the fair one (I knew her well) was Helen Ord.

Aye in the kirk I think on her
When weel my choir doth chord ;

For a' that's sweet in harmonie
Combines in Helen Ord.

And if the line within the psalm
By chance should end wi' " Lord,*'

I grip the L atween my teeth.
And only murmur —  " Ord ".

Colston was an honest, a good-hearted man, to whom fortune was not over-kind, and I had the opportunity of being of some service to him as the end drew near. What a fine manly appearance he had when leading the psalmody from the lateran.

[Definition of buirdly:
adjective: muscular and heavily built
Example: "`buirdly' is a Scottish term"]

60 YEARS MARRIED
Mr. and Mrs. F. W. Jackwitz Entertained

About 200 guests assembled at the residence of Mr. F. Kowaltzke, Blenheim, on Saturday, August 5, in honour of the 60th anniversary of the wedding day of Mr. and Mrs. F. W. Jackwitz of Laidley. The diamond wedding celebrations were arranged by Mesdames H. Hauschildt, G. Wegener. and F. Kowaltzke (daughters) and Mr. F. Jackwitz (sen.), Forest Hill.

The Apostolic Band of Hatton Vale, conducted by Mr T. Zumbansen, was in attendance, and on the arrival of Mr. and Mrs. Jackwitz, played the "Wedding March."

After greetings and congratulations, friends sat down at the tables arranged on the spacious verandahs. Floral and streamer decorations added to the attractiveness of the scene. A three-tiered wedding cake, made by Mrs. H. Hauschildt, was on the table in front of the bride and bridegroom.

Rev. S. Newell occupied the chair, and proposed the loyal toast, the band playing, and guests singing the National Anthem.

Mr. T. L. Moon proposed the health of the guests of honour. He said he had known Mr. and Mrs. Jackwitz many years, they had been close neighbours and loyal friends. It gave him a thrill to see the five sisters and brother of Mrs. Jackwitz present.

Seated next to Mrs. Jackwitz were Mrs. Wm. Jackwitz (Minden), Mrs. F. Kuhn, Mrs. H. Jackwitz, and Mrs. W. Litzow (Tarampa), Mrs Pieper, Vernor (sisters), and Mr. Wm. Schroder, of Lowood (brother).

Mr. A. G. Kluck, of Grantham, an old friend of the family, also gave greetings. and told of some of the experiences of the past. It gave him much pleasure, he said, to see the brother of Mr. Jackwitz present.

Seated at the table were Messrs. Otto, Alfred, and Paul Jackwitz. Mr. Herman Jackwitz, another brother, was unable to be present, The band played, "O God, Our Help," and "There's a Land That Is Fairer Than Day," favourite hymns of the aged couple.

Mr. Cliff Moon proposed the health of the sons and daughters of the "Bride and Bridegroom," Mr. F. Jackwitz, sen., responding. Mr. Geo. Wegener proposed the toast of grandchildren--Wm and Eddie Hauschildt, and H. and Allan Wegener--serving with the forces.

Mr. Jackwitz, sen., in responding, said it was a joy to meet their many friends. It was indeed a family re-union--brothers and sisters, and children--also 20 grandchildren and 13 great grandchildren.

Telegrams of congratulation were received from Craftsman H. P. Wegener, and Jack and Lena Cross, of Moore. Congratulations and an apology for absence were received from Cr. W. Schluter.

Games and music were thoroughly enjoyed during the afternoon, and after tea musical items and community singing added to the pleasure of the occasion. The Apostolic Band also added greatly to the enjoyment of the celebration. Two members of the band contributed musical and elocutionary items.

On Sunday, August 6.- at the Baptist Church, Blenheim, the Pastor referred to the many years that two of their members had been spared to each other. Sixty years was a long time in the life of a married couple. Mr. Jackwitz was now their senior Life Deacon. The father of Mr. Jackwitz, together with the late Mr C. Mutzelburg and Mr. F. Kirwitz, had been the first to hold Baptist services at Blenheim, and were founders of the Baptist Church there. On behalf of the Church he asked Mr. and Mrs Jackwitz to accept a token of the love and esteem in which they are held by Church members. Mr. Jackwitz suitably responded.

Mr. and Mrs. Jackwitz were married at Rosewood, by Rev. T. Nock, Methodist Minister, on August 7, 1884.

80th Birthday
MR W. GOODMAN 74 YEARS AT LOWOOD
Lowood.-Mr. William Goodman, sen., who celebrated his 80th birthday on Tuesday, was born at Bathurst, New South Wales, on November 21, 1865. He came to Lowood in 1871, when he was six years of age. With his mother and father he settled on the property on which he has lived ever since. It was all standing scrub, and he did much of the clearing of the property. As a young man he took on contracts of scrub felling and for a time worked on the railway in a fencing and repair gang after the 1893 flood. He was cane-cutting at Childers for a short time. Mr. Goodman remembers the 1893 flood, which took every building away with the exception of the Goodman home. All crops and fences went.
LOGS ON THE RIVER
The pine cut in the district was all rafted down the river from Goodman's lane. It was shot into the river. Many logs went into the water and never came up or stuck with one end up, and could not be moved.
Mr. Goodman also tried his hand at carpentering. He helped to build St. James' Church of England at Lowood, and for a time worked on Hancock's saw bench at Lowood. When he came to Lowood it was only dense scrub. There were only surveyors' bridle tracks past his home, and to Fernvale. There were about 300 or 400 blacks about, and they used to meet and have their corroborees at the bora ring, where the Andrews family now live. Little black boys taught him to swim. Mr. Goodman laughed as he told of how he won a ploughing match at Lowood and was beaten by one furrow in the all-comers' match for the championship. He used two horses and a long-handled plough made by Mr. W. Bulow, of Fernvale.
Mrs. Goodman, who was Miss Hilda Dennien, died two years ago. There are one son, six   daughters, 13 grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren.

On Tuesday night between 70 and 80 friends and relatives of the Goodman family gathered, at the invitation of the family, at the home of Mr. W. Goodman, sen., to honour Mr. Goodman on his 80th birthday and offer good wishes. Many old friends met and exchanged reminiscences. Cards and dancing were enjoyed. Music was supplied by Messrs. H. Dennien, N. and V. Wendt (accordion), and Mr. H. Schulz (drums). The barn was used for dancing. It was brightened with evergreens and bougainvillea. At supper a beautifully-iced birthday cake, made by Miss Kate Goodman and iced by Mrs. Russell, was a feature. Vases of gerberas and antigonon beautified the tables. Mr. F. H. Kidd was chairman. After the loyal toast Mr. Kidd said everyone present was pleased to honour such a fine and worthy citizen as Mr. Goodman. They were all pleased to see him so hale and hearty. Mr. Alf. Scott (son-in-law) remarked that on Monday Mr. Goodman had been out on the farm planting maize. Mr. F. J. Gould also spoke. On behalf of the family, Mr. Kidd asked Mr. Goodman to accept a cosy arm chair and, on behalf of friends present, a fine array of gifts, with the hope that he would be long spared to make use of them. The guest of honour expressed his pleasure at being in the presence of so many old friends, and he thanked them for their gifts. The health of the Goodman family was drunk.

A concert for the benefit of Mrs Delgaty and family will be given at Kaitangata this evening. The programme, which will be found in our advertising columns, possesses merits that should secure a full attendance. Mr Delgaty was well known to many in Balclutha and Kaitangata and throughout the Clutha district, and we are sure his old acquaintances will only be too glad to do what is in their power to make the concert successful in a pecuniary point of view. Regarding Balclutha we would point out that on many occasions the good people of Kaitangata have arranged for special trains to enable them to patronise similar entertainments in Balclutha. We have an opportunity of returning the compliment to-night. A special train will leave here at 6 30 p.m. returning at the close of the concert. There is thus no excuse left for non-attendance, and we hope to see both the train and the hall crowded.

The Concert in Gray's Hall, Kaitangata, on Friday evening, 1st inst., for the benefit of Mrs Delgaty, was a complete success in every respect. The purpose for which it was got up was praiseworthy in the extreme, and we were glad to see the public responded in a manner worthy of the occasion. Mr William Shore occupied the chair, and briefly, but feelingly, alluded to the object which had called them together that evening. He said he was glad to see such a large attendance for such a laudable purpose, but from the first time the question of the concert had been mooted, he had little doubt of the result, knowing the generous and sympathising hearts of the people of the district. He concluded by reading a letter of thanks from Mrs Delgaty, which he very truly observed spoke far more eloquently to them than any of the stereotyped phrases commonly used by Chairmen on similar occasions. He wished to thank them one and all for their attendance, and felt quite sure the pleasure the performers felt in giving their service was equalled by that of the audience in giving their assistance to such a benevolent object as the one that had called them together that evening. The programme was then gone through in first-class style, both vocal and instrumental. The usual votes of thanks to the performers, and the Chairman, brought the Concert to a close. A dance followed, which was patronised by old and young till an early hour the following morning, The proceeds amounted to L31.

Hermann, and Mr. and Mrs. W. Goodman, for the splendid way in which they had been entertained, and for the happy time spent. He wished the intended bride and bridegroom every happiness and prosperity in their new life. Mr. W. Pointing responded, and thanked them all for their good wishes and useful presents.

A NONAGENARIAN PLAINTIFF.

Before Mr Justice Poole in the Civil court on Wednesday, John Bell Bennett, of Naracoorte, brought an action against his son, Patrick Bennett, to set aside the transfer of a farm. The plaintiff alleged fraud, misrepresentation, and undue influence against the defendant. The plaintiff stated that he was 93 years of age. Up to November 16, 1923, he was the registered proprietor of 1,153 acres of land near Naracoorte known as Bellvue, and owned 1,200 sheep and other live stock, and also plant, farming implements, and tools. On March 26, 1923, he alleged that he had been induced by fraud to sign an agreement of that date that he would not alter his will, and that on November 16 he had been further induced to sign an agreement and transfer whereby he assigned to the defendant all his farm, stock, plant, and implements, in consideration of the defendant agreeing to provide him with a home for the remainder of his life, and £200 a year. On November 10, 1924, the defendant ordered the plaintiff to leave the farm and refused to allow him to live there. The plaintiff claimed a rescission of the contract and a declaration that the agreements were void, and a return of the farm and the stock and implements, and an account of the proceeds of the farm since November. 1923. The defendant denied all the allegations of fraud, misrepresentation, and undue influence, and alleged that the agreement and transfer were signed after the plaintiff had had competent and independent advice, that he voluntarily left the farm, and that the defendant was willing to carry out the agreement. Mr W. A. Rollison, with Mr H. G. Alderman, appeared for the plaintiff. Mr G. C. Ligertwood represented the defendant.
