The above is a portrait of Cr. Ilarry Ferrett, who, at the meeting of the Bundanuba Shire Council, on T'hursday last, was unanimously elhet ed Chairman. t wasn a representa tive of No. 3 division of the shire upon whom the honour was to be con ferred this year, and their choice in selecting Cr. Ferrett as their head for the ensuing 12 months has met with general approval. Cr. Ferrett has had an extensive experience in shire council matters, having represented No. 3 division of the Bundanha Shice since 1895, in which vyear he succeeded the late Mr. S. Shillito. During this time IMr. Ferrett fis occupied thle chair on five occasions-in 1Stil, 1900, and from 1903 to 1900 consecutively. Cr. Ferrett, at various times, also repre sented the council on several bodies, snuch as the Ipstich Traflic Board and the Local Authorities' Association. He also represented the East Ward on the Ipswich City Council for a term. Mr. Ferrett was born at Wallon Station, on the western line, on the Darling Downs, in the year 1856, when tihe station was owned 1by his uncle (the late ,Mr. John Ferrett), who, at one time, was a member of the Bundanba Shire Council. Cr. H. Ferrett fol lowed station life in his early days on both Wallon Station and Dulacea Station, on the Darling D)ownsr hut now lives a retired life at East Ips wiceh. No doubt Cr. Ferrett will make a very capablle Chairman, especially as he takes a keen interest in slire matters, and has already had consid erable experience in local government.
