Lord Jeans Christ as the only Saviour
of the soul. It was a solemn occasion
on which they were gathered together
to stand up in open grief and think
of the lessons it spoke to everyone; it
was equally solemn to gather round
brother. Parting left sorrow to those
closely connected ; 'man wan born to
sorrow, as the sparks fly upward,.' and
they all looked forward to those daily
separations and trials. Sometimes
they came in certain cases very sad,
very trying; sometimes others were
beginning of days and years of use-
fulness, and hearts mourned because
of the youth that passed away ; others
in the full strength of life, and leaving
those behind them unprovided for.
Sad and sorrowful were partings like
those, the departure of their brother
caused sorrow in the parting ; he had
gone beyond some fourscore years and
was now called away ; cut down and
gone to be gathered unto his father at
with the relatives; they were sorry,
but not as those who had no hope. He
knew of nothing so soothing to the con-
science as the knowledge and confi-
dence and hope of being called to Jesus.
Continuin his remarks, the rev.
gentleman said he was a stranger in
the district, on a visit, and their
departed friend was unknown to him,
but he had heard a little about him
since he arrived a few days ago; he
had heard many kind words spoken
about him ; what a good Christian
man, he was, one who was not
ashamed to take his stand on the
side of Jesus, and who was known as
a follower of the Iamb, and one who
helped the cause hbich was dear to
them. The knowledge that he was in
a btlter world might soothe and com
their sympathy. He learned that Mr.
Jardine was a man of wide Christian
sympathies, open hearted, and of great
truth ; living to help every good ob-
ject, a brother in adversity to those
who needed his help. ln the sphere
which he filled io the world, in the
market a man of honour, integrity and
believed in wherever he was situated.
Such a man was he, and sadly missed
when his place was vacant. He oc-
cupied a wide sphere of influence in
the district, and the speaker was sure
the loss would be felt by those who
Such a place was not easily filled.
The last call was a lesson and a call to
everyone of them ; the voice said 'Be
ye a'ways ready, and such an hour as
ye think not the Son of Man Cometh.'
Spared as he was to a good old age,
the call came soon, and he had not
gathered his friends around him to
bid him the last farewell.l He had
had their little places to fill, their in
fluence exercised every one of them.
That dispensation was given to all, so
that they might bear their trials and
losses, and enjoy the blessings of life.

sung the hymn ' 'Now the labourer's
task is o'er, following which the
organist, Mr. H. A. Evans, played with

The remains were left in the church
the funeral started for the burial
ground at Round Plain, which is situ
ated between Berridale and Adamin

The cemetery formed portion of the
Bullembalong run, owned, and formerly
occupied, by Mr. Jardine, the site
being given to the Presbyterian
Church by the owner. The Rev. J.
H. Cnig returned to Cooma this
morning, and, with the Rev. James

years ago) purchased tbe Bullemba
long Station. He sold this to Mr.
Donald Ryrie shortly afterwards, and
bought Curry Flat, a property of
14,000 acres, near Nimitybelle.;
Mr Jardine subsequently re-pur

Station was acquired it was nearly all
Jardine has resided there for abont 35
years. Other properties owned by
the deceased were Nitholm, of 1300
Flat, which carries sheep and cattle,
it became improved, and many were
coarse that the outlook was not pro
mising, but by burning off it became
good for sheep, and the owner quickly
fenced the paddocks, which then re
quired no shepherds to watch the
flocks. Some twenty years ago Mr.
Jardine was thrown from his horse
which bolted when he was returning
from a visit to Mr. Henry Wallace's
Dangelong Station to Curry Flat. He
then suffered from paralysis in the
groin, but recovered. The day before
was about to truck some bullocks. Mr.
Jardine Senr. was then riding a pony
bareback, helping to cut the cattle
out, and while sliding off the animal he
got a slight fall, which may perhaps
have hastened the attack from which
he succumbed. That was nearly two
weeks ago, and he was then working
at Nitholm. Mr. Jardine was a splen

steps at the rear, and a set of harness,

Mr. Jardine was a splendid stamp of
a pioneer, of hardy constitution and a
will to overcome all obstacles.
Although not occupying prominent
public positions he was a steady
worker, throwing the whole of his
energies into matters which be took
in hand. He was one of the promoters
of the Cooma P. and A. Association,
an elder of the Presbyterian Church,
of Cooma, he being one of the
guarantors, and assisting largely to
pay off the debt on the building. He
was greatly interested in matters
pertaining to the progress of the
void which is extremely difficult to
disposition, his charitable actions were
manifold, as many residents can
testify, while he gained the admiration
bity. While a thoroughly practical
and keen business man; with a mind
of broad mould, his nature was of the
gentle kind which endeared him to
everyone, The district can ill afford
to lose such men, though it cannot
expect to retain them long, after
having, as did Mr. Jardine, lived to
the ripe old age of nearly 85 years.
Mr Jardine leaves a family of five;
viz. Mr Robert Jardine of Bullemba
aby; Mr John Jardine, Curry Flat,
and who has managed the properties
for a number of years, Mr James
Jardine of Biggam Cattle Station,
and Miss Mary Jardine, wbo lives at

Carlisle Jardine, who lives at Nitholm,
is a sister of the deceased, and al
though having attained the age of
eighty-three is still hale and hearty.
