The Pioneers Gradually the band of heroic district pioneers are crossing the Great Divide. This week two old identities passed out in the persons of Mrs Eliza Dimond and Wm. Carter, the former at her sister's residence, Mt. Clay, Heywood, on Tues daA last, and the latter on the preceding day at the home of his daughter, Mrs W, Parker, with whom he had been living for a number of years. He was more familiarly known in the Coodab-dimtrict, where' the family name is a household one. The funeral took place on Wed, nesday at Condab, and was very largely attended, Mrs Dimond, who was 77 years of age, leaves a corrowing family of four sons Messrs Fred, Frank (Portland), James and Geergo. To the relatives of both the deceased the ssmpatby of their many friends is extended. Mrs Elizabeth Lamb (nee Miss Glad- stone) died at Millicent on Friday last in her 83rd year. She was not only held in high respect by the residents of that centre as one of the pioneers of the Milli- cent district, but also because of the energy she had displayed throughout a long life in working for the welfare of her own and succeeding generations. Mrs Lamb was educated at Portland and was accustomed to ride 800 miles on horseback to school. An old pioneer, Miss Robsrtson, aged 87, has died at her Griingalgoona home, near Coleraine. With other members of the family, after coming from Scotland in 1847, she travelled to this district from Sydney by bullock drays. Gringalgona homestead was a well known place for hospitallty to travellers. She was the last of her generation, and is succeeded by only a nephew and nieces.
