ANOTHER of Mr. H. P. Jeffery's valuable pointer dogs has fallen a victim to the poison fiend.
TENNIS. - The following tennis players will represent Moruya against Cobargo at Cobargo on Monday next: C. Carter, Father Bossence, E. A. H. Shepherd, F. Knight, Mrs. Simpson, Mrs. Ison and Miss W. Johnson.
ACCIDENT. - On Sunday last while Masters Charlie Ison and Ossie Tessier were galloping on horseback through a paddock at Kiora they collided, with the result that Charlie had his leg broken just below the knee. Ossie was more fortunate, escaping with only minor injuries.
MONEY LOST. - A sum of money lost by a poor man and a patient in the local hospital is advertised for in our business columns. The finder will be well rewarded on returning same to the Bateman's Bay Police Officer, or the unfortunate man who lost his little savings.
Mr. R. H. HARVISON, who was operated upon 13 months ago, is now in Sydney having his depleted jaw mechanically reconstructed by a scientific expert. The Specialist engaged is very sanguine that the experiment, which will require several weeks to complete, will be a success.
DEATH. - The Grim Reaper Death has been diligently using his sickle in this district lately, especially amongst the old pioneers. The last one to be garnered was Mr. James Lynch, of Mogo, who, after many months of suffering, passed peacefully away on Sunday evening at the local Hospital. Deceased, whose age was 61 years, was the son of the late Mr. William Lynch, of Long Vale, and had been ailing for some considerable time, the cause of his trouble being diabetes. He leaves three brothers William, Michael, and Edward and one sister, Mrs. W. Smith, all of Mogo, to mourn their loss.
KING'S BIRTHDAY. - Monday next, June 6, will be observed as a public holiday at the local Post Office. The local Post Office will be open from 9am to 10am only. All outgoing mails will close at 10am.
PERSONAL AND OTHERWISE. - One of the noblest ecomiums that can be pronounced of any man is that he keeps his word. It is a distinction which even the scoundrel coverts and pretends to possess. It carries with it the connotation of upright manly character.
