THE death occurred at the Windsor Hospital at an early hour on Saturday morning of Mr. Francis Bailey, of Upper Macdonald, at the age of 60 years. For many years the deceased supervised maintainance work on the roads in the Macdonald River Valley, and was held in high esteem as a conscientious and faithful employee by the Colo Shire Council. Failing health eventually made it necessary for him to relinquish such strenuous work as road-making, but even with the lighter duties he undertook he never regained the robust health of former years. Some weeks ago the late Mr. Bailey was involved in a motor car accident, when he sustained broken ribs which penetrated one of his lungs. He spent some time in the Western Suburbs Hospital, where, for a time, the doctors despaired of his life.
However, he pulled through and had sufficiently recovered to leave the institution and spend Christmas at home. But complications set in and he was removed to the Windsor Hospital, where he passed away a week later. The late Mr. Bailey was a native of St. Albans, where he was married to a Miss Walker, who survives, together with a family of four sons and two daughters, viz., Selina Althea, Francis Edmund, Albert Bertram, Argie John, Iris Edna, William Arthur. The remains were laid to rest in the Methodist portion of the St. Albans cemetery on Sunday. Rev. A. J. Simpson conducted the last sad rites and Mr. Chandler was the undertaker.
