Flying “Ace’s” Fatal Accident.
While riding a motor cycle through a drizzle of rain at night, Stanley F. HOBLYN, of Bartle Road, Durban, collided head on with a tram car proceeding from Umbilo to the town.  He received injuries from which he died while being removed to hospital.  HOBLYN was employed on the tug Sir David Hunter, and was riding home from work when the accident happened.  HOBLYN was a former “flying ace” in France.  In 1917, when forming one of a squadron, bombing Zeppelin sheds in Germany, his machine was brought to ground by an “Archie.”  After a period as a prisoner in Germany he was allowed to proceed to Holland on parole, where he met and married a Dutch girl.  His wife is stated to be on a holiday rip with her little daughter to Holland at present.  Deceased was 29 years of age, and had been in the harbour service in Durban since 1924.

A Lenten Wedding.
The wedding took place at St. Michael’s Church at eight o’clock this morning of Mr. John BARTLETT and Miss JAY, and subsequently the happy couple left for Port Elizabeth, where the honeymoon will be spent.  The ceremony was a very quiet affair and was conducted by the Rector (the Rev. W.A. GOODWIN).
 
The late Mrs. N.J. PIKE
Death is depriving Bolotwa of many of its old landmarks, the last being Mrs. N.J. PIKE, who after a long illness, which resulted in total blindness for the last fifteen months, was called to rest on Friday last in her 61st year.  What such a affliction, coupled with her disease, must have meant to one who loved nature in all her aspects, who was devoted to her garden and conservatory, she, and those in daily attendance on her, alone could gauge.  Our deepest sympathies go out to her sorrowing husband and sons.

Shot by Brother.
A very sad shooting affair took place at Mr. LABUSCHAGNE’s farm, down in the Thorns near Entonjoneni, as a result of which a son of the family, about 22 years of age was killed by his elder brother.  Details are lacking, but as far as can be at present gathered the elder LABUSCHAGNE had been out shooting.  As he was returning home he came across the young brother.  Thinking the gun unloaded he pointed it at his brother for a joke and called out, “Hands up!”  He must have then pulled the trigger.  There was a loud report, and, to his horror, he saw his brother fall at his feet.  On investigation it was found that the poor boy had been shot right through the head and instantly killed.

Choked by False Teeth.
A verdict of death by misadventure was returned at Hull in the case of John DALES (34), a South African student farmer, who died after swallowing his artificial teeth while eating an apple.  His brother-in-law, Arthur HOLDER, said DALES took an apple to bed to eat.  He complained that the dental plate, on which there were two teeth, was loose, and he apparently swallowed them during the night.  The Coroner observed that it was dangerous to go to sleep wearing small dental plates.
 
Train Tragedy.
A tragic accident occurred at Klipplaat on Monday night, when a young man named Jack MANSE, aged 26 years, a bridge inspector in the Public Works Department was killed.  He was a passenger from Barroe and must have tried to leave the train while it was still in motion.  MANE thought he was getting off the train on the platform side, when, in fact, it was the side where there was no platform.  He was found lying the track shockingly injured.  On foot was cut clean off just above the ankle and was lying nearby.  The other leg was crushed from the knee to the foot.  There was a staff nurse on the train, who rendered first aid, and a doctor was summoned by phone from Jansenville.  MANSE was eventually carried to a compartment for conveyance to hospital at Graaff-Reinet.  He collapsed and died before the train left.

Cathcart Notes
The whole town was shocked on Saturday to read of the terrible shooting tragedy in Natal which involved with so many deaths.  More especially was this so in view of the fact that one of the victims was Captain G.C. ASHMAN who until quite recently was stationed in Cathcart, where he had been sub-inspector of the police for several years, being promoted towards the end of last year.  The deepest sympathy of all goes out to his widow and children in their very sudden and tragic bereavement.
The death occurred recently in Harrismith of another former resident of Cathcart in the person of Mr. T.A. GEORGE.  The late Mr. GEORGE was manager of the National Bank when it was opened here after the conclusion of the war.  When resident in Cathcart he took a keen interest in many branches of sport and his histrionic abilities were frequently shown to advantage in several local amateur theatricals in which he to part.  Some years ago owing to serious throat trouble he had to give up all work and live in retirement.  He leaves a widow, a daughter of the late Mr. MAGER of Queenstown, and two young children to mourn his loss.

Obituary.
Queenstown lost one of its prominent sons on Thursday last, when John Eric Carlisle LEACH passed away at his residence in Grey Street at the age of 42.  Born in Queenstown, the son of the late Mr. J.B. LEACH and Mrs. LEACH, now in East London, Eric was best known in Queenstown while his parents lived at Poplar Grove.  He was a keen sportsman, and an expert on the football field and tennis court.  When the Great War broke out, Eric was one of the first to answer the call to arms, and served nearly three years in East Africa.  He was invalided from the Army, and returned to Poplar Grove for a period, but soon returned to his work on the mines in Johannesburg.  He shared the fate of many another by falling a victim to miners’ phthisis, and about a year ago he had to give up work and retired with his wife and family to live quietly in Queenstown.  His life was prolonged by the careful nursing of his wife (also a Queenstonian, and remembered by her
friends as Miss TRENNERY), but the end came last Thursday, when Mr. LEACH passed away peacefully in his sleep.  The funeral took place on Friday afternoon when the chief mourners were Mrs. J.B. LEACH, Mr. Cedric LEACH (brother), Mr. Harry LEACH (uncle) and his son Norman, and Mr. BENNETT (brother-in-law) ...

Congratulations to Mr. Edmond WAINWRIGHT, who to-day celebrates his 89th birthday!  Mr. WAINWRIGHT, who still looks hale and hearty and astonishes his friends by his energy in the garden, where, like old Mr. GLADSTONE, he is never happier than when chopping wood, was born in Lower Albany on 10 June, 1938.  He is a son of Edward WAINWRIGHT, who came to this country with his father in WAINWRIGHT’s Party in 1820.  He married Hetty LOVEMORE on 17th October, 1877, and the happy couple will thus celebrate their golden wedding this year.  They have a family, now living, of seven daughters and two sons.  Mr. Edmond WAINWRIGHT has lived in the Cape Province practically all his life, being associated with Bathurst, Cradock, Somerset East, Adelaide, Middelburg, and Tarkastad, and for some years now has lived in retirement in Queenstown.  Besides being an active farmer, he has also been a diamond digger (1871 and 1872), while he had a good spell at transport riding in the early days of Kimberley.  He first shouldered a rifle in the Kaffir Wars when he was but 15 years of age, and was out again on active services in 1878.  He is particularly fond of his garden, where he spends most of his time.  Mr. WAINWRIGHT is greatly agitated at the effort now being made to displace the Union Jack, under which he has lived all his life, and even now he is prepared to die in its defence!  WESTBOURNE has reason indeed to be proud of its Grand Old Man.

Golden Wedding.
We offer hearty greetings to Mr. And Mrs. W.A. LANDMAN, who celebrate their golden wedding to-morrow.  After giving up their farming activities, Mr. And Mrs. LANDMAN settled in Queenstown a good many years ago, and have since taken a keen interest in the town’s affairs.  There have been a few benevolent movements which have not had the active sympathy of this genial couple, and if there were more men of Mr. LANDMAN’s broadmindedness there would be less racialism in South Africa.  During the Great War there were few appeals for aid to which Mr. And Mrs. LANDMAN did not respond, and “Wellum’s” enthusiasm over the Springbok Ruby successes in the Old Country showed a sporting spirit which won for him many friends.  We wish many more years of united happiness to Mr. And Mrs. LANDMAN.

Cathcart Notes
The sympathy of all is extended to Mrs. MANTHE on the death last Wednesday of her son Willie, a young lad of 16 years of age after a short but painful illness.  This is the second bereavement the family has sustained recently, the husband and father having passed away only a few months ago.
 
The death occurred also on Saturday of Miss Myrtle DICKS, only daughter of Mr. Arthur DICKS, Waku, at the early age of 30.  Much sympathy is felt for Mr. DICKS, his family and relatives, in their sad loss, occurring so soon after the bereavement they sustained after the bereavement they sustained recently by the death of Mr. DICK’s brother.  The funeral took place on Sunday afternoon, being conducted by Rev. J.A. GILLIS of Hilton.

Obituary
News was received in town yesterday of the death at Capetown of Mrs. E.T. WELLS.  Mrs. WELLS was the eldest daughter of the late Rev. S.P. NAUDE, and was well known in Queenstown.
The death has taken place of Rev. Joseph BACON, Wesleyan Methodist Church Minister of Oudtshoorn, at Blackpool, England, whither deceased had gone, accompanied by Mrs. BACON, in search of health.  Mr. BACON was beloved by his congregation, who mourn the loss of a real friend.  His first appointment in South Africa was Queenstown.
Death has removed another of Queenstown’s sons recently in the person of Mr. Oswald BARNES.  Born in the district in November, 1879, he spent the early part of his life at school, upon leaving which he went into the employ of Messrs. Peacock Brothers Arcade, where he served for several years.  When the Boer War broke out he was among the first to answer his country’s call, and he served as one of the two buglers (the other being Mick BROSTER) to the Queenstown Volunteers.  At Helpmekaar he was wounded and retired for a time to the depot at Queenstown, where he was employed in the Pay Master’s Office, when he recovered he completed the period of the war by serving in the Colonial District Forces.   After several more years spent in Queenstown district he decided to try his luck further north, and spent various periods in Bechuanaland and the Transvaal and finally decided to settle down and make his home at Kopjes in the Free State some years ago.  He was unfortunate enough over a year ago to contract some internal complaint that was unsuccessfully operated upon at the Johannesburg Hospital.  He then came down in December last to the home of his brother at Oxkraal Drift, where, after months of suffering born with great fortitude and cheerfulness, he passed peacefully away among his dear ones on the night of the 1th June at the early age of 47 years.  He was laid to rest in the cemetery at Whittlesea, where a large number of the friends of his youth and friends and acquaintances of later days sorrowfully paid their last respects to him.  The sympathy of all will go out to his sorrowing widow and little son in their great loss.
