    • MRS. SPENCE.

      We regret to report the passing away at the Cairns District Hospital on June 11 of Mrs. Mary Jane Spence. The deceased lady until recently had resided in the Childers district from her girlhood days, shifting to Hambledon with her husband on the sale of the C.S.R. Company's Childers Mill, and leaves, besides her husband, a grown up family of three daughters-Mrs. Keith Swanborough, Mrs. Hugh Armour, and Mrs. Roy Steffens and one son-Walter-to mourn their sad loss. The funeral left the Cairns Methodist Church, the Rev. C. A. Read officiating both at the church and the graveside. The pall-bearers from the church were: H. Armour, A. E. Godebye, L. M. Smith, N. C. Sinclair, G L. Richardson, and F. Calmyre, and at the graveside, C F. Clark, H. Lennon, F. A. Harris, J. Coburn, N. McGlynn and J. Guilfoyle. Though resident only seven months at Hambledon, the deceased lady, by her kind disposition, had endeared herself to many, as was evident by the number who attended the funeral. The list of expressions of sorrow, in immortelles and wreaths included officers of the C.S.R. company's mill at Hambledon, relations and southern friends.
