GUNDOWRING - John Macdonald, of Gun- dowring station, one of the oldest residents of the district, and one of Victoria's pioneer settlers died at his home at Gundowring on Fri- day, after a long illness. He was aged nearly 90 years. He came to Victoria when a boy.
For many years he lived in the Western district, but more than 30 years ago he sold out there, and bought Gundowring station from the late Mr. C. Barbour. He dealt almost exclusively in fat cattle which invariably brought the highest prices. He took a leading part in the formation of the Kiewa Butter factory, and for many years was a director. He was also a councillor of the Yackandandah shire and on many occasions oc-
cupied the president's chair. He leaves a grown up family of three sons and three daughters. Mrs. Macdonald died many years ago. He was buried in the Presbyterian portion of the Tallan- gatta cemetery on Sunday. About 350 people assembled for the opening of the Kergunyah Soldiers' Memorial Hall on Friday. Speeches were delivered by Mr. Beardmore, M. L. A., and mem- bers of the committee.
