    • MA MA CREEK NOTES.
      The residents of this district (writes out correspondent under date of the 23rd instant) were both shocked and grieved when news came to hand last week of the death of Mrs. Christiansen, wife of Mr. C. Christiansen, jun., a much-respected farmer of Ma Ma Creek. Some weeks ago Mrs. Christiansen went to Brisbane, where she gave birth to a son. A few days afterwards she was seized with an attack of scarlet fever, and was in consequence removed to the Hospital. At one time she rallied, and it was hoped that all danger was over, but she suffered a relapse, and died on Tuesday morning, the 16th instant. On Wednesday afternoon the body was brought to Gatton (all necessary precautions having been taken to prevent infection) and there interred in the local cemetery, Mr. H. Risson officiating at the graveside. Universal sympathy is felt for Mr. Christiansen, who had been married only a little over 12 months. Mrs. Christiansen was the eldest daughter of Mr. C. Higgins, of Fordsdale, and was but 22 years of age at the time of her death. Her infant is living, and is being cared for by Mrs. Christiansen, sen.
