widow of the late Mr. Daniel

Mactaggart, who, with his brother  

John, founded Mactaggarts Primary Producers' Co-operative Association Ltd., died at her home in Brisbane last week.

Mrs. Mactaggart, although a Victorian

by birth, lived for many years in Queensland. She was married at Maryborough in 1892, and not long after came to Brisbane with her husband.

It was about this time that Maryborough was connected by rail with Brisbane, and so lost much of its importance as an outlet of the Burnett district.

transferred to Brisbane, and later was formed into a company, and then into the present Mactaggarts Primary Producers'

Co-operative Association Ltd. Mrs. Mactaggart's husband predeceased

her 14 years ago. She is: survived by two sons and four daughters.
