Mr. William John S. Coote, who died at his residence, Woodlands, Knights bridge, on Wednesday, was formerly one of the best-known tradesmen in Rundle street. He was born 77 years ago at Meth wold, Norfolkshire, and 22 years later proceeded to South Africa. Shortly after wards he sailed for South Australia, and started business in a small way in Robert street, off Wakefield street. Subsequently he went into storekeeping at Enfield and Noarlunga. He founded the Lilliputian Bazaar, at 64 Rundle street, where he specialized in baby linen and millinery, and built up a prosperous business. He re tired from the trade about 15 years ago. Mr. Coote was a great traveller, and, in addition to several visits to England and the Continent, made trips to China, Japan, and the United States, and fre quent journeys to New Zealand and Tas mania. The deceased was philanthropi cally inclined, and his gifts were bestowed unostentatiously. In 1889 he built some almshouses in his native village in Eng land and he maintained them to the time of his death. It is understood that several South Australian charities will benefit con siderably under his will. Mr. Coote was twice married, and has left no family. His second wife, Mrs. Rebecca Coote, a daughter of the late Mr. Wiles Peacock, died in March, 1912.

He lias had a long experience as valuer, and it is interesting to know that his assess ment:, of the ; Wallaroo township and smelting works, in ' 186C was probably the first assessment ever made forithe Govern ment, of South 'Australia. OniMarch 18, 1894, he w» selected as Government Actuary. _ He had not previously hod any training in actuarial science, and before he consented to take the position he paid a 'visit _ to Melbourne to enquire into the working of the system.

' He came to South Australia in 1858, and settled at King's- Belt near Freeling, where he fol lowed agricultural- pursuits. In 1863 .he re moved to Cohcordia; near Gawler; where he was married'. to Carolina Augusta; Herde on October 9 of that year, in Rosenthal Chapel, by Pastpr Dost. ? Having remained there fof three' years' they proceeded to Hoyletpn. where they have resided ever since. . They have been prominent workers in connection with- the Lutheran Church, of .which Mr. Banm has been, a lay reader for 27 years. There are four eons. Messrs. William -and Hermann, of Hoyleton. -and Alfred and Edward, of Skilly, near Auburn, ?and four daughters, Mrs. J. Saunders and Mcs. A. Berghouse (Hkhgate), 3Irs. G. Neindorf (Parrakie). and Mrs. F. Ham merachmidt., (West Adelaide). A number of relatives and friends gathered at their home to celebrate ?their golden wedding. A service was conducted by Pastor Gutekunst. who proposed the -toast of the. afternoon,' and referred to the splendid eervice the couple had rendered to their church and also -their many estimable qualities. The toast was supported by Mr. H. P. Chap man, of Hoyieton, who spoke of- the high esteem ? in which they were lield. their kindness of heart, and their willingness to help any who were in need: Mr. Baum responded. The family gave the. parents a -nurse of sovereigns, and numerous pre ecnb- were tendered by friends. It is still believed that the Czar's eight fear-oid son and heir (whose illness last autumn was surrounded with mystery) will be taken to the Sakki safc lake baths near Eupatoria for a special 'cure' while the Court is nt Livadia, the Czar's summer residence on the south coast of tbe Crimea. A military officer from Sebastopol, whos« official duty enabled him to see much oi the Czar's son during the few days' stay of the Court in Odessa, says that he looks well, and even robust, is vivaciously interested in naval and military reviews, audteives the impression generally of nappy~boy hood, but his movements are 'grievously restricted.' He is closely attended by a Ijurly but gentle Cossack, who carries him hither and thither, lifts him into and out of the imperial equipage, and ministers to liis conveniences and comfort in every pos sible way. The boy apparently entertains a sincere affection for his devoted atten dant. . ? ?- In all that has been written during the last few months about David Livingstone, The Sunday At Home has seen very few references, to his brother Charies. In early life Charles Livingstone wad so much touched by David's decision to eo to Africa that he resolved to devote his life also to missionary service. Lacking the means to get an education at home, he was ad vised by David to ro to 'America, where it was said students could help themselves by manual labour. David gave him his quarters allowance from the London Mis sionary Society— namely. £5— with which he took passage to New York. He worked h» way through a college course, and held a pastorate in Massachusetts for a few yeans, finally returning to England and joining his brother in the Zambesi expe dition. He died in IS73, only a few months after the ereat explorer had fallen asleep in Chitambo's village.
