The death occurred at his late residence, Upper Macdonald, of Mr. Francis Bailey, senior, about midnight on Friday, 11th instant. His demise was not unexpected, as he had been in failing health for several months past, and had it not been for the kindly ministrations of his people and Nurse Bailey, together with an iron constitution, characteristic of the old hands of the district this notice would have appeared long ere this. Of the subject of this notice, it can be truthfully said that he had no enemies, and he never harmed anyone by word or deed. He lived his 78 years on the Macdonald River, and it is certainly a tribute to his uprightness and integrity to say that at the end of that time there is no black mark against his name. A widow, a grownup family of five daughters and three sons, twenty six grand children, and two great grand children, survive him. His remains, were interred in the C.E. portion of the local cemetery on Sunday, the funeral being attended by all his family, some of whom are living in another district, and a large concourse, of local people, who came to pay their last respects. The Rev. R. Rooke conducted the burial service.
