Obituary . One by one the pioneers are passing, and the death of Mr John H. Row, which took place at his residence, Gawler street, on Wednesday morning in his 86th year, re- moves another brave soul from our midst, For many years he successfully conducted a jeweller's business in Gawler street, and on retiring his son, Mr Frank Row, took control, although, so familiarly was it known, that the business still retains the name of the late proprietor. The late gen- tleman, until the infirmities of advancing years called a halt, took a keen interest in public affairs, being regarded as the father of many institutions. He was a particularly active member-and, by the way, the oldest --of the Free Libary and Bowling Club, and occupied the presidency of each on many occasions, and up to the time of his death his participation in the managements of the affairs of these two bodies did not cease. He was a devout member of St. Stephen's Church, where he will be sadly missed. A man of the strictest integrity, he was held into the highest esteem in all circles, being recognised as one whose word was his bond and whose idea of Christianity lay in his at- tittide towards his fellowmen. By his works he was known, and he leaves be hind a record of noble citizenship. To his widow and family is extended the deepest sympathy in their sad loss.
