Sir Frederick' Holder, in t-t-cunding, said they were re minded of the splendid pioneering wori. which had been done in the interests of tin Methodist Church by the now fait-ton. traclinir band of which Mr. Lloyd was a member. Although celebrating his jubilee his addresses still touched and moved with singular power the hearts of those who listened to him.

Bennett occurred at his residence in George street, this morning, after a somewhat brief illness (wrote our Moonta corres pondent on March 5). A few weeks back Mr. Bennett was bitten on the leg by an insect, to which he attached little notice at the time. However, seven days ago blood poisoning set in and, despite the ef- forts of his medical adviser (Dr.T. James), nothing could be done to save his life. The deceased gentleman, who was the youngest son of the late Thomas B. Bennett, for many years master of St. Peter's College and the Adelaide Educational Institution, was born on January 21, 1855. He receiv- ed his education at Mr. John L. Young's educational institution, and at the age of 17 years entered the Government service, being first engaged in the Marine Board at Port Adelaide and afterwards in the Attorney-General's office. In 1881 he was appointed Clerk of the Court at Port Lin- coln, and nine years later Clerk of the Local Court at Moonta, in addition to which he held the position of returning of- licer for the District of Wallaroo. In con- nection witli the latter office especially he showed much tact and ability, and by his obliging and gentle disposition he made himself respected and loved by all with whom he came in contact. He was a most efficient and painstaking officer, and one whom the department can ill-afford to lose. The deceased gentleman was a fine sportsman. For many years he was   member of the Adelaide Hunt Club, and al- though he did not take an active part in local sports, they always received his practical sympathy. A widow, three sons and one daughter survive. English newspapers of February 2 stated that Mrs. Jemima Luke, the authoress ol the children's hymn 'I think when I read that sweet story of old,' who was lying seriously ill at Newport, Isle of Wight, was slowly sinking, and that the end was ex pected at any .moment. ? ) Mr. Frank liarritt, of Yattalunga, will shortly leave for a trip to England. Tt is his intention to tour the old country in a motor, and to devote attention chiefly t- agricultural interests. He hopes to gair valuable information on rural subjects.
