      FRIDAY, AUGUST 11, 1893.
      St Matthew's Church, Albury, was on Sunday morning the scene of a peculiarly distressing incident involving the death of Mrs Michael Knobel, who resided with her husband and family at Mungabareena. Mrs Knobel and two of her children were in their usual place in church when the service began. Shortly after the congregation rose Mrs Knobel fell to the floor in what was supposed to be a faint. The berger and several members of the congregation immediately went to the assistance of Mrs Knobel, and she was lifted up and removed outside. She was then apparently lifeless, and Dr Kennedy, on arrival a little time afterwards, pronounced her dead. The congregation were not generally aware of the seriousness of the incident until after the service, thinking that the deceased had been overcome merely by a fainting fit. But death was almost instantaneous. Mrs Knobel was 54 years of age, and was the mother of a large and well brought up family. About 14 years ago a son of the deceased had an apoplectic fit and fell in a fire, when he was burnt to death. At a post-mortem held on Sunday afternoon death was shown to have arisen from apoplexy. A magisterial inquiry was held on Monday, when a verdict in accordance with the medical testimony was recorded. It was elicited that the deceased had been under treatment by a Melbourne doctor for apoplexy. In the course of a sermon at the evening service at St. Matthew's, the bishop referred to the sudden death, saying that day had been a day of visitation to the congregation, for one had come there to join in the worship and praises of God, but while in the house of God she had joined those at rest in Paradise. It was well that her last moments should be spent in the earthly tabernacle of Christ. Everyone should take that visitation as a message for them to put their house in order, and to give an account of their stewardship. Let not that visitation pass by without letting them realise the importance of salvation; may it make them faithful, for no one could say wen they entered the house of God but that it might be for the last time.
