Obituary. MIiS. WEBER. General sorrow was expressed when news was lmade known of the death yesterday afternoon in extremely sad circumstances of Mrs. Amy Weber, wife of Mr. 'Jonas Weber, farmer, of Drysdale, and third daughter of Mr. Richard Edwards, of Church ll;, and formerly in business as. a grocer in Firebrace-street. Deceased, c.ltough not a resident, of this. district until -about three years ago, was well known to a good many people here, and she was held in lrl highest esteem. As recently as October, 1'0S, she was married in Iorsham to Mr. Weber, and went to live at Drysoule. About three weeks ago she came to IIorsham to spend a short while at her father's house, and while there a child was born. The deceased appeared to be in good bodily health up to that period, but subsequently her colulition took a bad turn, and Dr. Robinson was in almost constant attendance. In the beginning of the week,; how ever, a change was manifest, and so pronounced for good did it seem that .Mr. Weber, vwho had I-een summoned to lforsham, returned to his property. Dr. Relid .was called in consultation, and the patient continued to improve, a hope being 'held out for her ulti mate recovery. About 1 o'clock y-es terlay afternoon, however, the deceased lady took a Ibad turn, and Dr. Rlobin son was summoned to the bedside. His attention was unremitting, but pneumonda had laid too secure a hole on the patient's constitution, and she gradually sank and passed away at 3 o'clock. The husband, to whom the sad news was at once communicated, arrived in Iforsham last night by the express. The deepest sympathy is expressed for the bereaved family, in their un toward affliction. -Mrs. Webeir, Who was well known to many by her maiden name, cams to lorsham about three years ago with her family, and up to the time of her marriage she was en gaged in music teaching. She was of a pleasant disposition, and was a tire less worker in the cause of the church. The remains will be interred in the Ilorsham cemetery 'this afternoon, the funeral mnoving from the residence of deceased's father, Mr. R. Euwards, John-street, Church Hill, at : o'clock. The death has occurred of Ir. .K. Mc Kay., a pioneer resident of Nine Mile. near Sea Lake. Mr. McKay underwent a serious operation in the Wycheproof hos pital, and his system was unable to stand tih shock. A veteran of the Crimea and a resident of Stawell for 40 years died at the Sta0 well hospital on Sunday night, in the person of Mr. James Algie, aged 78. At the age of 18 Algie became imbued with a desire for soldiering, and in 1849 he " took the Queen's shilling," enlisting as a private in the 71st Highland Light In- fantry, at Glasgow, where he was born. On the outbreak of hostilities in the Crimea, his regiment was ordered to Cor- fu, in Greece, where he arrived at the end of 1854. Before his regiment could reach England after the Crimea,. they were ord- ered to India, and what was left of the 71st reached Bombay in 1857, and oper- ated in Central India under General Rose, who had charge of the Central In- dia Field-Force during the terrible times of the Mutiny. Algie passed through many stirring days, but came out un- scathed. He was the proud possessor of three medals, Crimea and Indian Mutiny, and the Sultan of Turkey's medal to the men who took part in the Crimean War. Algie was in receipt of a War Office pen- sion. This pension the old veteran never drew until 1897, and it was only ob- tained through the representations made by Mr. T. G. Crefar, who brought Algie's case under the notice of Mr. James Hickey, formerly of Stawell, and then Paymaster of Imperial Pensions in Vic- toria.
