Another old and esteemed resident in the person of Mr. William Walter Wignell, of Elderslie, passed from this earthly scene of strife last Monday, having been in indifferent health for some time. He had reached the 69th milestone of life, and had witnessed many changes in the district—wonderful transformation scenes as well as many tragedies.

As a fruit-grower, he met with much success at our local shows when he was an active competitor. He retired from active pursuits about three years ago.

The funeral, under the management of Mr. Walter Peters, took place yesterday afternoon, when the last remains were interred in the Narellan cemetery—Rev Canon Allnutt officiating in the last sad rites.
