One of Queensland's oldest pioneers, Mr. H. Charlton Kable, passed away last week at Killarney (writes our Killarney correspondent). The late Mr. Kable was born at Bathurst, New South, Wales, in 1830, his father being at that time engaged in sheep farming outside Bathurst. Over 60 years ago Mr. Kable migrated to Queensland, taking up country on the Dawson, and while there he took part in the Canoona gold rush, outside Rockhampton. From the Dawson he transferred to Redbank station. Leaving Redbank he took up some country in the Gladstone district, and later engaged in sugar growing in the Mackay district. In 1902 Mr. Kable retired, and went to reside with his son, Mr. J. Charlton Kable, proprietor of an hotel on the Clarence, New South Wales. About six years ago Mr. Kable came over to Killarney, his son having purchased the Post Office Hotel there, and up to the time of his death the old gentleman was a well-known and popular personage in the town.
