By the death of Mr. Leslie Gordon Corrie, who passed away yesterday morn- ing, Queensland has lost a man who, in a quiet, unassuming way, did a great deal of good for the State, especially for the farming community. Born on Febru- ary 2S, 1859, the late Mr Corrie was a son of James Affleck Corrie, of South Park, Kirkcudbright, Scotland. He was educated at the Hobart High School, and afterwards articled to the late Mr Henry Hunter, architect, Hobart. After serving his articles, Mr. Corrie practised as an architect in Launceston for some years, and then, 32 years ago, came to Bris- bane, where be carried on his profession

in partnership with Mr Henry Hunter,

and later with Mr. Addison, eventually conducting business by himself. In the course of his career be designed many of the prominent buildings of Brisbane, leav- ing his mark, on the architecture of the city. His many good qualities were re- cognised by his fellow citizens, and he was elected to the City Council, and chosen major in 1903, and again in 1904, For many years he was president of the   Queensland Institute of Architects. He was a Fellow of the Linnaean Society, and one of the founders of tbc Uni- versity, in which he took much interest, being a member of the Senate till some two or three years ago. In Masonic life he was a Past Master of the British Lodgo (English Constitution). A feature of Mr. Corrie's life that will ever re- main in the State was his work in the

direction of acclimatising fruits and plants. He was president of tho Fruit Growers' Association, and for many years, up till the time of his decease, president of the Acclimatisation Society, in which position he did most valuable work. He kept in touch with experts in Europe and America, and with experi- mental gardens all over the world, and was instrumental in introducing fruits and plants which have proved of enormous value to the farmers of Queensland, par- ticularly on the coast around Brisbane, where he did much for the culture of pineapples, sugur cane, &c. Through the American Government he introduced many plants from Florida, which were planted in the Acclimatisation Grounds, and from these and many others he evolved varie- ties most suitable for Australia. The custard apple was introduced by Mr Corrie, and is now of great value to the State, while he also introduced one of the most valuable canes for fodder known in Queensland. In fertilisers for gardens and farms, too, his knowledge was of great value, and the high quality of his worn cannot be overestimated. The funeral of Mr. Corrie, who is survived by hin widow and one daughter, will leave his late residence, Koronui, Bowen terrace, at 11 o'clock, this morning.
