PIONEER OF FLIGHT.

A PROPHET WITHOUT HONOUR.

DEATH OF LAWRENCE

HARGRAVE.

SYDNEY. Tuesday. - Mr. Lawrence Har-  

grave, who was a pioneer in aviation, died   at his home in Woollahra, Sydney, to-day,  

aged 65 years. For 30 years he worked     steadily on problems of aerial engineering.  

and it is said that his discoveries were used   as foundations by others who have become  

famous. He offered his models to the Go- vernment, but was told that there was no   room for them. Similar indifference was     shown in England, so Mr. Hargrave pre- sented them to Germany. They are now in the Deutsch Museum at Munich, and it   is believed that the German Taube mono-   plane is fashioned upon one of his models.
