WOMAN'S WORLD,

DEATH OF MRS. ROBERT PORTER.

A very wide circle of friends will regret to hear of the death of Mrs. Robert Porter, of Corio, Kangaroo Point, at the   residence of her son-in-law, Mr. T. Shackel,       where she was staying for a few days. Mrs. Porter was the relict of the late Mr.   Robert Porter, a well-known man in Bris-   bane, and who pre-deceased her by seven   years. Mr. and Mrs. Porter came to Bris-

bane in 1860, and settled at Kangaroo Point in the house which the family now occupy. Mrs. Porter, though in her 86th year when she died, enjoyed marvellously   good health until about last November, and   she was proud of being able to say that no doctor had attended her for over thirty   years. She was skilled with her needle,   and an unfinished piece of beautiful em- broidery was laid aside only a few days     before her death. She had a wonderful memory, and was alert and active until the last few weeks. She had two sons     and six daughters, one of whom, the late Miss Alice Porter, head mistress of the Leichhardt-street Infants' School, passed       away a few years ago. The other members   of the family include Mr. Fred Porter (H.M. Customs), Mr. W. Porter (bank     manager, Laidley), Mrs. T. Schackel, Miss       Porter (head mistress Girls' and Infants'   School, South Brisbane), and Misses M., K., and Mary Porter. The funeral, which   was largely attended, took place from the   residence of her son-in-law, Mr. T. Shackel,     Thorn-street, Kangaroo Point. The service     was conducted by the Rev. G. Ewan, of the Mowbraytown Presbyterian Church.
