    • MR. PAUL KNUDSON.

      ATHERTON, April 1.

      Mr. Paul Knudson, for the past 15 years a resident of Millaa Millaa, died on Saturday, March 30, in the Atherton District Hospital, at the ripe old age of 86 years. He had enjoyed fairly good health until Thursday last, when he suffered a stroke and lapsing into unconsciousness passed away.

      He was a native of Varda, Denmark, and came to Australia at about the age of 20 years. For many years he was in Maryborough and Gympie and engaged in the business of carrier on the goldfields. Fifteen years ago he retired and came to live at Millaa Millaa, residing with his son,  Mr. Allan Knudson.

      He was a widower, and is survived by two sons, Mr. Allan Knudson, of Millaa Millaa, and Mr. Carl Knudson, of Cairns, and a daughter, Mrs. H. Smith, who, with her husband, is a missionary in Japan, and 11 grandchildren.

      He was laid to rest on Sunday last in the Atherton cemetery, the last sad offices being undertaken by the Rev. Basil Dale, of the Methodist Church.
