====== A Johannesburg (South African) newspaper of March 31 stated that Mr. Julius Ludwig Schomburgk had disappeared from Durban on or about March 9. or a week after his arrival in that town. The deceased was a younger brother of the late Dr. Schomburgk,   curator of the Botanic Gardens. He was by occupation a gold and silver smith,   and a very expert modeller and de- signer. For 25 years he was in the service of Mr. J. M. Wendt, jeweller, of Rundle-street, occu- pying for a considerable time the position of foreman in the workroom. He left a note reading:—" I am tired of life, and therefore put a finish to it. Among his effects was   found a Masonic certificate dated from Ade- laide. No clue had been found to Mr. Schom- burgk's disappearance when the last mail steamer left the Cape. He was 72 years of age at the time of his death. In October last year he left by a sailing ship for South Africa, when he intended taking the trip to recruit his health, which had not been Rood of late years. The deceased was a bachelor and was of a rather melancholy disposition.
