residence Skene Street. The deceased

gentleman was 49 years of age, the eldest son of the late Mr

George Kay and Mrs Kay, and his

genial nature had won for him many   friends, who will deeply regret his


The late Mr Kay was a native of Stawell, and practically the whole of his life was spent here. In his early years he was apprenticed to the Sta-

well Foundry, with which the family's name has been successfully con- nected for so many years. He took

up the engineering branch of the work,  

and achieved a very high standard in

his profession. Mr Kay eventually became a partner in the firm of Kay and Co., Stawell Foundry, and con- tinued in this position until his demise.

The late Mr Kay was the inventor of the judg- ing machine which has been used with great success by the Stawell Athletic Club for many years past.

By the death ol Mr Kay, the Sta- well Rifle Club has lost a valuable member and a consistent shot. He captained the club at many times, and was always amongst the best shots, whilst he was ever ready to place his knowledge of the rifle at the disposal of young shots, many of whom rose to a high state of proficiency as a result.

Mr Kay also took a great interest   in angling, and many other organisa- tions he at times took a keen interest   in. He was a member of the Pride of Wimmera Lodge, G.U.I.O.O.F.

Sincere sympathy has been expressed for his widow and two daughters in

their sad bereavement, and also to his

other relatives.

The funeral is appointed to leave deceased's late residence, Skene-street, at 3.30 o'clock this afternoon, and the members of the Pride of Wimmera Lodge, G.U.I.O.O.F. and Stawell Rifle

Club are invited to attend.
