DIED WHILE PLAYING CRICKET

Part Owner Of

Kara Station

Glowing tributes were to-day paid to thc late Mr. Aubert Mussen Jack- son (55), part owner of Kara Station and other pastoral properties, who died suddenly yesterday while playiug in a game of cricket at Wonnaminta Station.

"He was one of the best known men in the district, and was loved by all who knew him," said one of his friends to-day. "His personality stood out, and he will be missed by all who knew him. He was a gentleman from the finger tips, a man who could not

do anybody a bad turn."

The late Mr. Jackson had a long association with this district, and his death came as a shock. About 18 months ago he was treated for heart trouble by the late Dr. Macgillivray and Dr. Hains. When he entered into the game of cricket he was ap- parently in good health. The death was reported to Mr. K. A. Donaldson, coroner, but he decided to dispense with the holding of an inquest.

The funeral took place to-day, the burial being made on Kara Station by Fred J. Potter and Son. Mr. R. H. Calder, manager of Bennett and Fisher Ltd., left at 8 o'clock to-day   to attend the burial.

Mr. Jackson leaves a widow and three sons, Harry (21), James (16) and John (15). They reside at Kara.

The late Mr. Jackson was a native of Victoria, but in his youth he went to Corona Station when his father   had that property. As a young man he went to Langawirra as a jacke- roo, the station being managed by Mr. John Samuel Jackson, his bro- ther, who now has property near Cobar. About 30 years ago he went down the Darling River district and managed Tarcoola Station, and later had charge of Mundi Mundi and Yan- cannia properties. About 10 years ago he took over Kara, which was portion of Nuntherungie. Apart from owning Kara he was a part owner in Langawirra, and had an interest in Kayrunnera.

A few years ago he took a keen interest in the affairs of pastoral as- sociations, and his advice was eagerly sought. When at Mundi Mundi he was a director of the Menindie Pas- tures Protection Board. At the time of his death he was a councillor of the Pastoralists' Association of West Darling.

Mr. Jackson, in his young days, was very prominent in cricket, tennis, and football. He was a member of the Broken Hill Club and a flag was flying at half mast from that building to-day as a mark of respect to his

memory.
