    • MR. HANS LARSEN.

      Mr. Hans Larsen, who died in a private hospital in Wowan, had been an esteemed resident of the Dawson Valley for nearly 16 years. Mr. Larsen was born at Hersoe, Denmark, in 1873, and was left an orphan when only nine years of age. He did farm work and was apprenticed to a pump fitter, afterwards going into the building trade. In 1901 he migrated to Australia and worked in the Bundaberg district and on the Darling Downs. Then he went in for dairy farming on the share system and later started as a builder and contractor.

      In 1916 he came to the Dawson Valley, farming first at Dululu and then at Wura. While his family looked after the farm he undertook a number of building contracts. Ill-health compelled him to give up this work about a year ago. He is survived by his widow and a family of five sons and three daughters, all grown up. The sons are Messrs. Louis (Wowan), Henry, Edward, Sophus and William (Wura), Mesdames A. F. Rettke (Yangan) and E. W. Wenck (Wondai), and Miss Daisy Larsen (Wura). The last sad rites were conducted by the Rev. Mr. Ranwell, of the Church of England, while Bro. M. Curry read the Masonic burial service.
