    TOODYAY
    STILL PROGRESSING.
    BIG PROPERTY BOUGHT
    By South Australian Breeder.
    During the last few days the
    Carroll Farm, at Bolgart, changed
    hands through the agency of Elder,
    -hnith and Co., -Ltd. The new
    owner, Mr W. G. Hawkes, comes
    from the weU-known " Koonoona
    Station, in South Australia, and is
    prominent among the breeders of
    that State. The sale, which involves
    a big sum, was arranged on a walk
    in walk out basis, the late owner
    being Mr C, R. Hyne, of Guildford.
    This transfer ot such a valuable
    property is another instance showing
    that the eyes of outsiders are looking
    towards Toodyay for properties.
    During the past few months several
    valuable holdings have been bought
    by newcomer's, among them being :
    "■ Hawtbornbray," by Mr E. Lee
    Steere.
    " Gleudearg," and others by Mr
    Goccli.
    •' Carroll " Farm, by Mr W. G.
    Hawkes.
    " Yandee" Farm, by Mr Sowden.
    There have als« been many other
    sales of minor importance, all of
    which go to show that outsiders have
    noticed and are still noticing the
    high cLss quality of land in this
    district being offered at such reason
    able values.
    There are still acres and acres of
    good, cheap land awaiting buyers,

    Toodyay is progressing and new

    THE LATE MRS JOHN NICOL
    DRUMMOND.
    OLD TIME MEMORIES.
    (By "Colonist.")
    Another link with the past has been
    severed by the death on Saturday last of
    Mrs. John Nicol Drummond. The deceased
    lady had been ailing for some time, and
    passed peacefully away at her home in Su-
    biaco at the ripe age of 93 years, the greater
    part of which was spent in a life of un-
    selfish devotion to the needs of others.
    It was in 1830—a year later than the
    foundation of the colony of Western Aus-
    tralia—that the late Mrs. Drummond, then
    a mere child, arrived in the sailing ship
    Egyptian with her father, Captain William
    Shaw, of the 91st Foot. Captain Shaw's
    commission issued in the reign of George
    III., in 1813, is still in the possession of Fix this text

    DRUMMOND OF YERE-YEREFix this text
    An Interesting Octogenarian.
    (By F.W.G.)
    He is the third James Drummond. The
    first was the famous botanist who came
    here in 1829 on the Parmelia with his
    wife and six children, and who wrote his
    name everlastingly in flowers upon the
    page of our short history. The second is
    James Drummond of Hawthornden, who
    was elected on October 31, 1870, as the
    representative of Toodyay in the first
    Legislative Council under Representative
    Government in Western Australia. He
    erected the first flour mill in the Tood
    yay district. On April 4, 1851, he took up
    Yere-Yere, Dandaragan, which was the
    first block to be selected in the district
    then known as Dandaraga. It consisted
    of 10 acres and its price was £10. The
    Mr. JAMES DRUMMOND.
    earliest selection of land in the district
    now known as Dandaragan was Yath
    roo, only 12 miles south of Yere-Yere. It
    was taken by Mr. W. L. Brockman in
    1848. For many years the districts were
    known separately. Walter Padbury, who
    died in 1907, left £1,000 to "the clergy
    man in charge of Yathroo and Dandara
    gan."
    The third James Drummond was born
    at Vine Cottage, Toodyay, on January
    26, 1859. Before he had reached the age
    of 12 he was minding his father's sheep
    far east of York in the district now
    known as Mt. Stirling, which was the
    farthest east of any known settlement in
    Western Australia. In April, 1871, he
    came to Dandaragan as a lad of 18 and
    has ever since been associated with Yere
    Yere, first as jackaroo, then as manager,
    and eventually as owner. From the mod
    est 10 acres Yere-Yere grew to many tens
    of thousands of acres and became one
    of the best-known cattle stations in the
    State. About 20 years ago it was sold
    to the New Zealand and Australian Land
    Co., who have cleared most of it and
    have marvellously increased its carrying
    capacity. Mr. Drummond retained 100
    acres of the property, on which he re
    sides today.
    Long Roead Board Association.
    During his 62 years residence in Dan
    daragan he has served continuously for
    50 years as a member of the Dandaragan
    Road Board. On April 10, 1890, Mr. John
    Adam, resident magistrate of Newcastle,
    accompanied by Constable (later Inspec
    tor) McKenna, journeyed to Dandaragan
    to constitute its road board. The six
    members of that first board were:--Ed
    ward Roberts (chairman), John Cook
    (the elder), John Cook (the younger),
    Joseph Charles Clinch, James Drum
    mond and Peter Fraser. Of these only
    two are living; John Cook the younger,
    now 88, who still holds office, and James
    Drummond. who has recently resigned
    the position. These two have shared
    other interests together in addition to
    their work as road board members. At
    Jibberding, north-east of Dalwallinu,
    they jointly held a pastoral lease of
    150,000 acres. Today it is covered with
    wheat farms with Wubin as their centre.
    The Dandaragan Road Board was formed
    at Yere-Yere, and for some time its
    meetings were held there. Later, at the
    instigation of Walter Padbury, a solid
    stone structure was erected which was
    intended to serve the dual purpose of
    church and school, and which was
    named St. Ann's after Ann Nairn, Walter
    Padbury's sister, and Mrs. Drummond's
    mother, and here for some years the road
    board met.
    Mr. Drummond's retirement will be
    marked by the board at a gathering of
    many of his old friends, when an address
    is to be presented to him. He will always
    be known as James Drummond of Yere
    Yere. I remember Yere-Yere as I first
    saw it more than 30 years ago. It was
    the home of beautiful Hereford cattle.
    James Drummond's father, many years
    before, had been the first to introduce
    Hereford cattle to the State. Mr. W. L.
    Brockman, of Gingin and Yathroo, was
    the first to import Shorthorn cattle. Be
    tween these two breeds there was some
    rivalry for a considerable time. It was
    at Yere-Yere that I first saw Mural, a
    winner of the Perth Cup and a son of
    the mighty Carbine, whose stock has won
    many thousands of pounds in stakes. He
    was bought by Edward Roberts and
    James Drummond from Henry Ogborn.
    I shall never think of Mural without see
    ing again the well-known figure of Billy
    Warrell the aboriginal, who cared for
    Mural during the last years
