    came worse, and he was taken to Dr. Nan-
    kivelle, who ordered his removal to the
    Glenarm private hospital. Later Dr. Long,

    arrival the patient had succumbed. De-
    ceased, who was 52 years of age, was a
    native of Bendigo, and was the son of the
    late Mr. James Rohan, a successful farmer,
    formerly well known in Bendigo. He leaves
