Our Penola correspondent writes:— "A very old resident of this district, in the person of Mr. Jas. Stark, passed away at his residence, Lake Mundi, on Tuesday morning, at the ad- vanced age of 83 years. Mr. Stark got up in the morning, and was at his usual duties when he was suddenly attacked with giddiness. He was as- sisted inside, but passed away in about an hour. His remains were in- terred in the Penola Cemetery on Thursday, the Rev. D. A. Souter read- ing the burial service."
