      The death occurred yesterday at the Bundaberg General Hospital of Mr Carl Louis Sankowsky, a very old and highly respected district resident. The late Mr Sankowsky was 80 years of age, and had spent upwards of half a century in Australia. He was a native of Hamburg, Germany, and almost immediately after arriving in this district commenced to follow up his calling as a wheelwright. He worked in various parts of the district, and was generally recognised as a conscientious and competent tradesman.
      For some years past he has been living in retirement, and until recently enjoyed good health. He is survived by three sons and two daughters. They are: Mesdames W Skyring (West Bundaberg), W Berthlesen (Brisbane), Messrs EC, EG and CW Sankowsky.
