    • MR. W. P. BENNETT.

      Mr. William Patrick Bennett, who died in the Narracoorte Hospital after a short illness on March 16, was an old and respected resident of this district. He had been in good health up till a day or so previous to his death, and his sudden demise came as a shock to his wife and other relatives. He was born in Kapunda in 1859, and when a child of two years he came with his parents overland to the South-East, where his father followed farming and grazing pursuits for many years, being among the pioneer settlers. He was the second eldest son in a family of fourteen of the late Mr. J. B. Bennett, who was a successful landholder, and died here several years ago. At the age of eleven, after receiving his education. Mr. W. P. Bennett went out working on the land and engaged in ploughing and other jobs of a similar kind, and when 15 years old he drove a team which carted wheat from Mount Gambier to Rivoli Bay (Beachport). Following the death of his first wife, the late Mr. Bennett took up land with his father on Moy Hall. That was 45 years ago, and they worked hard improving their holding by draining off the flood waters and in other ways, and transformed it into a good property. Mr. Bennett had resided in the Narracoorte district up till the time of his death. He leaves a widow and a son and daughter of his former marriage--Mrs. W. J. Burford, of Narracoorte. and Mr. Pat Bennett, of Ballarat (Vic.). Mrs. Barker and Mr. Pat Bennett, of Narracoorte, are a sister and brother of the deceased. The funeral was well attended by relatives and friends, the Rev. Father Bayard conducting the service at the grave. The mortuary arrangements were carried out by Mr. A. F. Giddings, of Narracoorte.
