OBITUARY. A DOUBLE BEREAVEMENT. The family of the late Mr James Moulden, of Sailors' Home, have this week suffered a sad shock by the death of both mother and father. Last issue we mentioned the death of Mrs Moulden, which took place at the residence of her daughter, Mrs Collard, of Dimboola. Mr Monlden, who was ill at the time, died on Wednesday at Dimboola, only three days after his wife. He was informed of her demise, but this in no way hastened his death, as his case was known to be hope- less, death being due to heart failure. Mr Moulden, who was 72 years of age, was in Horsham a week ago transacting business, having sold his farm property to Mr Joe. Wills. Though not then in the best of health, nothing serious was anticipated. Deceased arrived in the district 30 years ago from South Australis, arriving in that State at the age of eleven yeats. A family of three sons and six daughters, all married but three, are left. The funeral will take place to-day. On the 19.h prox. an in. memoriam service will be conducted at Sailors' Home by the Rev.

When in Europe in 1884 he purchased 12 statuettes, including representations of the four seasons of the year, and presented "them to the citizens". This gift led the public to subscribe for the statues of Burns, Moore, Queen Victoria and other celebrities, which now adorn the streets.
