He had ridden to Portland yesterday - morning and when in the act of mounting his steed for the purpose of returning home last evening the animal began plunging, with the result that Mr Righetti was thrown, sustaining a dis located shoulder which necessitated his remaining here all night. ORANGE LODGE.-WVe remind those interested that the members of the local Orange Lodge celebrate their anniver sary by a tea and concert this evening in the Oddfellows' Hall. Previous similar gatherings in connection with this body have proved most successful, and from what we hear there is every reason to be lieve the meeting to-night will be a plea sant and enjoyable one. DEATH OF MR. ALEX THOMSON.-It is with sincere regret that we (" Spec tator") have to announce the passing away from among us of one of the oldest landmarks in this district in the person of Mr Alexander Thomson, the owner of Pierrepoint estate. The deceased gentle- man was a native of Crathie, Aberdeen shire, Scotland, where he was born in November, 1824, and was therefore in his seventy-third year. The deceased took a keen interest in the affairs of the district and was elected councillor of one of the first Dundas Shire Councils, which at that time used to hold its meetings in Mr French's woolshed. He retained his seat at the council table for 21 years, during which he filled the office of Presi- dent on several occasions. He had also been a prominent member of the Pastoral and Agricultural Society, in which he always took great interest. As an exceptionally good judge of all classes of stock his services were much valued, especially in sheep-dog matches, in all of which his decision as judge was never questioned. About two years ago de- ceased was thrown from his buggy, and had never quite recovered from the effects of that fall, but has been confined to the house ever since. The cause of death was paralysis. The deceased leaves a widow and three children, two sons and one daughter, Quours.-A quoit match was played on Monday evening, between the Ob server and Central clubs. The Ob server won by 137 points, and their total of 76i was scored in 17 rounds. The following are the scores: OBSERVER. CENTRAL. Dusting ... 197.

DEFERRED DEPOSITs.-Yesterday the portion of the deferred deposits of the Bank of Victoria, of which notice of release was given in April has fallen due, and on the 22nd inst. the same thing will happen in connection with the Nat ional Bank of Australasia. We believe that it may be safely concluded that before long another announcement will be made. Everybcdy will be glad when these two great institutions have finally cast off the reconstruction schemes adopted at a time of panic.
DIPHTHERIA. -A few mild cases of diphtheria having been reported in this I: town, the Central Board of Health has 2, ordered all schools to be closed till the rr 26th July, and a notice appears elsewhere making it imperati'e that all cases should cl be at once reported either to the Central B Board or Borough Council. Although so at far as we can lear' tr.e cases are of a b very mild nature, we would strongly ad vise parents to keep a iatchful eye upon the throats of their children, and so soon' as suspicious syr iptoms appear, however slight, to at once call in the medical at tendant, at ail times remembering that de lays are dangerous, and especially regard- gi ing diphtheria. WVe may add that we ir hear in the majority of the cases re- is ported a cure has been effected, while the to others are making satisfactory progress towards recovery. n C MYAMYN STOCK SALE.-Messrs. R. a S. Bree and Co. have decided to hold a ft Tale of stock at the hotel yards, Myamyn. on Thursday, the 29th, and elsewhere some of the stock to be cffered are particularised- Those wish ing to have stock placed under the hammer should send in particulars of same at an early date to admit of same being advertised, and thus afford intead- b ing purchasers an opportunity of becom ing acquainted with what will be offered. We would again point out that it is to the advantage of the seller to have his 4 stock advertised early.
