      Death of Mr. George Knott.

      After but a few days illness the death of Mr. George Knott took place last night at his residence on Barolin Road in the presence of his wife and family. It seems that Mr. Knott had an apopletic seizure on Tuesday, from which he never regained consciousness, and passed away as stated. The deceased, who was 62 years of age was widely known in Bundaberg and district as an old resident of upwards of 25 years standing. In the early days he held the position of foreman to the Woongarra Shire Council. Then he became a contractor with a partner named Mr. Nixon, building roads for the Barolin Shire Council. He afterwards retired from that class of work and bought a public house at Childers, which he conducted for some years with success. He then erected his present fine residence on the Barolin Road where he breathed his last at about 9.30 last night. He was a prominent Mason of the Irish Constitution until its incorporation with the Queensland Constitution. He held the offices of secretary and Past Master of the old constitution. He married Miss Gaynor, whose father built the Federal Hotel in Bourbon street. He leaves a widow and two daughters, Grace and Eva Knott to mourn their loss. The interment will take place at the General Cemetery this afternoon at 3 'o'clock. Messrs F. C. Brown and Co., Undertakers have the arrangements in hand.
