OBITUARY Deep sympathy is extended to Mr. A. E. Ball, Searle street, in the loss of his mother, Mrs. James Henry Ball, of Hamilton, who died suddenly last Fri- day. The late Mrs. Ball was 90 years of age, and was among the pioneers of Australia. Born at Westmead, Ire- land, in 1839, she came to Adelaide at the age of 17 years, where she married her late husband, James Henry Ball. From Adelaide they journeyed across country to Portland, where they settl- ed on the land, and for many years carried out pastoral duties. After the death of her husband in 1885, the late Mrs. Ball went to Hamilton, where she resided until her death. Up till the day of her death she lived an active life and was always bright and cheer- ful. Among those who are left are seven children to mourn their loss:- Arthur Edmund (Horsham), Walter (Mordialloc), Luke (Hamilton), Pat- rick (Casterton), Emily (Mrs. Tully, Hamilton), Sarah (Mrs. Broadtmann Melbourne), Katherine (Mrs. Fergu- son, Wickcliffe), William and Mahailla (Mrs. Kenny) are deceased. The fu- neral left her daughter's residence, Hamilton, on Sunday, and was followed by a large cortege to the Hamilton cemetery, where her remains were in- terred.
