      Obituary
      MR. R. EMBREY.
      ROSEWOOD, Sept. 30.--A pioneer of the Rosewood district, Mr. Richard Embrey, died at the residence of his daughter, Mrs. A. M. Freeman, Albert-street, Rosewood, recently. The late Mr. Embrey was 93 years of age, and was within a few days of attaining his 94th birthday when he died. He was the oldest living resident in the town, and was only confined to bed for a week prior to his death.

      Born at Pine Mountain, Mr. Embrey came to Rosewood when there was only a bridle track through it. He made a rough home for himself at The Bluff, Tallegalla, where he cleared scrub, fenced, and cultivated the land. He married, and there he and his wife reared a family of 11.

      For many years he was on the committee of the Tallegalla State School, and was an old trustee of the Tallegalla Methodist Church. He had been a member of the Rosewood Show Society also. Mr. Embrey spent most of his life at Tallegalla, although for a period he was in the Kingaroy district, living with his sons. For the last twelve months he had been living with his daughter at Rosewood.

      Mrs. Embrey died 26 years ago. Six members of his family also predeceased him. He is survived by four sons, Messrs. Herbert and Harry Embrey (Rosewood), Richard Embrey (Upper Yarraman), David Embrey (Southport), and one daughter, Mrs. A. M Freeman (Rosewood). There are 44 grandchildren, 71 great grandchildren, and three great great grandchildren'97in all 123 living descendants.

      The funeral of the late Mr. Embrey left the Congregational Church, Rosewood, for the Tallegalla Cemetery, on Friday morning. Rev. J. Dyer officiated at the church and graveside.
