There passed away lately at the Diamantina Hospital a very old Bris- bane resident, Mrs. Tiffin, widow of the late Mr. Charles Tiffin, who was for many years Government Architect for Queensland. With her husband, Mrs. Tiffin came to Brisbane from Tasmania about the year 1859. The deceased lady was the daughter of the late Captain Haig; who was well known in mercantile circles in Tasmania, and who captained his own vessel, trading' io Mauritins and the Went Indies. The late Mrs. Tiffin took a prominent part, in preparing the house overlooking Petrie's Bight for the reception of Sir George and Lady Bowen. She also had to supplement the supply of household linen, whioh had been over- looked. . The late Mr. Tiffin was the architect for Government House (in the Botanic Gardens) and the Parliamentary Buildings., Mrs. Tiffin being chosen to select the colours for the interior walls of the buildings. The deceased lady, who lived to the age of 90. will long be remembered by a wide circle of friends from her ever ready help and sympathy in times of sickness. She was a most enthusiastic gardener, and though she had no family of her own was devoted to children.
