    • MRS. EUNICE SMITH.
      ROSEWOOD, February 2.
      Mrs. Eunice Smith, a very well-known identity of the Rosewood district, in which many of her descendants live, passed away peacefully at the home of her daughter, Mrs. A. C. M. Imrie, Albert-street, Rosewood, on Tuesday night, after being confined to her room through failing health for three years. The late Mrs. Smith, who was 87 years of age, was born in Cambridgeshire (England) and came to Queensland at four years of age. She lived at Goodna and Redbank for a number of years, then came to the Rosewood district, where she spent the greater part of her life in Albert-street. Throughout her long illness members of her family spared no effort in their attention to her. Mrs. Smlth's husband died 27 years ago. Her eldest and youngest sons served with the A.I.F. in the Great War. Of her family of 10, there are six living - Mrs. Elizabeth Freeman (Rosewood), Mr. Fred Smith, (Miriam Vale), Mr. Alfred Smith (Rosewood), Mr. E. Smith (Milton), Mrs. W. J. Freeman, and Mrs. A. C. M. Imrie (Rosewood). A son, John, was killed at Mackay, and another son, George, died at Winton. Grandchildren of the late Mrs. Smith number 34, great-grandchildren 60, and great-great-grandchildren 2-- a total of 102 living descendants, many of whom are land settlers in the Rosewood district.

      The funeral of the late Mrs. Smith left from the Rosewood Congregational Church on Wednesday afternoon, for the Tallegalla Cemetery. A service was conducted at the church by Rev. H. S. Capern (Gatton) and Rev. N. C. Watt (Rosewood). Mrs. Watt presided at the organ, and the hymns, "O God Our Help in Ages Past" and "Abide With Me," were sung. The pall-bearers were Messrs. Ernest and Alfred Smith, A. M. Imrie, W. J. Freeman, N. W. Ruhno. and F. Gunthorpe.

      Revs. Capern and Watt officiated at the graveside. Many floral tributes and expressions of sympathy were received.
