OBITUARY. It is with deep regret that we re cord the passing away of yet another of Portland's pioneer women in the person of Miss Ada Catherine Hay- man, at the age of 76 years. The deceased lady had suffered ill-health for a considerable period, this being preceded by an operation at Warr- nambool, but from which she never recovered, and passed away at her residence in Tyers Street. She was born in Axminster, Devon, England, and, with her parents, landed' at Portland in the 60's. Her father, Dr. Phillip Charles Hayman,, rode a horse for the first time in his life all the way to Edenhope, where he prac- tised, then to Harrow, and on to Ararat, finally returning to Mel- bourne, where he died. The late Miss Hayman was the last of a fami- ly of four. Three brothers, W. R., Dr. F. F. and Archdeacon Hayman, predeceased her. It will be remem- bered that the late Mr. W. R. Hay man was instrumental in taking the first All Black Australian cricket team to England in the year 1868. The late Miss Hayman was a staunch follower of the Church of Eng- land, Portland, where she was a Sunday School teacher for quite a number of years, and the many beau- tiful floral tributes bore testimony to the very high esteem in which she was held. The services at the house and graveside were conducted by the Rev. Canon Coupe, assisted by the Rev. P. B. Hayman, of Sandringham, a nephew of the deceased. , The coffin-bearers were Messrs. R. C., B. S., and E. O. Hayman, also nephews of the de- ceased. The remains were laid to rest in the Portland South cemetery on Thursday last, Mr. B. L. Wilkin having charge of the mortuary ar- rangements. Ilosi, Iiolbrook says : Thle Hol brook Queen Olives are the most ouIluur. They are alwnays so tasty and crii p).
