      Death of Mr F.J. Jefferies
      On Saturday Bunnythorpe lost one of its oldest pioneer settlers in the person of Mr F. J. Jefferies, whose death took place after some two months' illness. His loss will be greatly mourned. Though he lived a quiet, retiring life, never putting himself prominently before the public, he was known throughout the district as one of the best-hearted men, kind to everyone, very liberal in gifts to those who needed them, and never refusing to lend the helping hand to those who were in trouble, sorrow, need, sickness, or any other adversity. To Mrs Jefferies, who survives her husband, much sympathy will be extended. Besides the widow, there remain one daughter, Mrs G. Gifkins, of Waitotara, and four sons, Thomas (Stanway), Walter (Mauriceville), Sydney and Wilfred (at home). Tbe funeral will take place to-morrow.
