Terrible Railway Tragedy.
A passenger for Edenburg met a terrible fate at Trompsbury early on Tuesday morning, when he attempted to alight from the train while it was in motion.  The passenger was Mr. H. KRUGER, who was on his way from Burghersdorp to visit his father at Edenburg.  When the train was steaming out of Trompsburg station, where it had stopped as usual, he rushed from the coach, apparently thinking that he had arrived at Edenburg and was being carried beyond his destination platform.  His coat caught in the carriage doorway, and he fell between the platform and the moving train.  People on the platform shouted to the engine driver to stop.  He heard them and promptly brought the train to a standstill.  It was then seen that Mr. KRUGER’s death had been instantaneous.  The whole of one side of his body was lacerated.

The late Mr. T.J. WELCH.
The passing of Mr. T.J. WELCH, who died of heart disease in the early hour of last Friday morning at the residence of his daughter, Mrs. H.V.S. PONDER, of Kind Williamstown, removes one whose cheery and kindly personality endeared him to many friends on the Border.  The old gentleman’s acquaintance with South Africa dated from the early seventies when, as a junior officer in the old Union Steamship Company, he made many voyages to and from Cape ports.  Leaving the sea upon his marriage, he spent many years at Worcester in the Western Province, being transferred from there to Queenstown about 20 years ago- these, the last active years of his life, being spent in the Audit Department of the Catering Service of the Cape Government Railways.  Owing to a severe illness contracted whilst on duty he was compelled to retire in 1914, spending the evening of his days with relatives and friends.  To those privileged to know him, his inexhaustible fund of reminiscence, grave and gay, of adventure and sojournings in many climes, was a continued source of pleasure.  The agony and weariness of his last illness were born with wonderful bravery and patience, in keeping with the character of the simple, kindly, honest gentleman that he was – a man whom there was no guile, slow anger, speaking ill of none, believing good of all.  After many years of storm tossed life his frail barque under the guidance of the Great Mariner, has at last reached its final haven.

Death of Well-Known Farmer.
The death occurred at his farm Torstone, Dohne, on Tuesday morning says the “Cape Mercury,” of that veteran Border farmer, Mr. Joshua A. HARTY.  The deceased gentleman, who was in in his 87th year, had been suffering from influenza and the enfeeblement due to his great age militated against his withstanding the attack.  The son of the 1820 settlers, Mr. HARTY had farmed at Torstone for a number of years, and no farmer of the Border was better known or more highly esteemed, his frank and jovial disposition endearing him to all with whom he came in contact.  He was one of the last of the generation of farmers who opened up the Border as one of the best sheep farming areas in South Africa.  The deep sympathy of all will be extended to Mrs. HARTY and family in their bereavement.  The funeral took place at Stutterheim to-day.

Shot by His Chum.
A distressing accident is reported by a Christiana correspondent.  He states that on Saturday evening a youth of about 18 years Norman BROWN accidentally shot his chum, Gert BURGERS.  It appears that BURGERS and BROWN occupied the same bedroom, and before going to bed they were playing with revolvers.  BROWN, who had a revolver in his hand, was showing it to BURGERS, when suddenly it went off.  The shot struck BURGERS in the jaw, and all his teeth on one side were destroyed.  The bullet is still in his head.  He was conveyed to the hospital at Kimberley with all possible speed, and his condition is reported to be very critical.  It is understood that the injured lad was able to make a statement to the effect that the shooting was entirely accidental.  BURGERS is a student at the Agricultural School, and came home recently to spend the holidays with his widowed mother in Christiana.

The death has occurred of the Rev. Amos BURNETT, for many years Chairman of the Transvaal District of the Wesleyan Methodist Church.  During his superintendency of the Transvaal District Mr. BURNETT’s strong and virile personality commanded a wide influence, and he left a very definite mark upon the spiritual life of the area in his charge.  Some five years ago Mr. BURNETT was recalled to England to fill and important connexional office at the Wesleyan Mission House, where he served the church with conspicuous success.  In April last Mr. BURNETT revisited South Africa, coming out at the instance of his medical adviser, and though in weak health, his presence at the recent East London Conference was most beneficial in connection with highly important constitutional  questions under discussion.  The news of Mr. BURNETT’s death, cabled from England, will be received with very real regret by a wide circle of South African friends and fellow workers.

Lady Frere’s Loss
The Late Mr. J.J. KELLY.
(From our own Correspondent).
In the early hours of Wednesday morning Mr. J.J. KELLY passed away.  The sad event was not unexpected, but the big fight which the deceased gentleman put against the complications which set in led his family and friends to entertain some little hope that after all he might pull through.
The late Mr. KELLY was in his early days a member of the F.A.M.P. and later of the C.M.R., and became associated with Lady Frere and district in the early eighties.
In all matters affecting the welfare of the community the deceased figured prominently, and moreover his purse was always open in aid of charities, sport and other objects.
He was responsible for the planting and care of the beautiful trees along York Avenue leading up to the cemetery, the public market shed, and the Recreation Ground, and, moreover, supervised the building of the Public School and the War Memorial Library, so that the village is rich in monuments of his good works.
Coming from fighting stock, being the son of a soldier, he took part in all the Colonial wars, holding the medals for them and also one for saving life on the coast.  When the great war broke out, although well advanced in years, immediately offered his services, but as in the case of many veterans, his offer was turned down owing to the age limit.  All of his sons, however, with the exception of one, who was too young, took the field and acquitted themselves as everyone expected they would do – one (Percy) making the supreme sacrifice.
As a legal practitioner of many years standing the late Mr. KELLY was held in high esteem by the legal fraternity and by clients.  It will not be giving any secret away in saying that the deceased gentleman on many occasions without charge championed the cause of a poor client, more especially where he considered that an injustice had been done, and in public life he was fearless in denouncing anything shady.
During his trying illness many expressed the opinion that in parting with Mr. KELLY, it would mean a severe loss to Lady Frere, as he was looked upon as the father of the village in every sense of the word.
Owing to the children being scattered, only Captain E.C. KELLY, Collins and Paddy of the sons and Mrs. MACLAREN, Mrs. PROBART, Mrs. BLACKHURST, and Miss KELLY were present at the end, but Colonel Sherwood KELLY, V.C., is on his way out from England.
Notwithstanding that the funeral took place at short notice, it was largely attended – not only by villagers, but by friends from a distance who by mere chance heard of the death, and all shops and offices were closed…
Had time permitted no doubt the Masonic Lodge would have been fully represented at the funereal, as the late Mr. KELLY was a Freemason.
The Revs. H. Borell JOHNSON and H.R. TOURTEL officiated at the graveside, and the coffin was covered by a Union Jack…

Death of Mrs. E. COOPER.

The death of Mrs. Eliza COOPER, widow of the late Mr. George COOPER, of Whittlesea, which occurred at the residence of her daughter, Mrs. RAWSTORNE, at Brakpan, has removed from our midst one of Whittlesea's oldest and most highly esteemed residents. Mrs. COOPER, who was in her 88th year, enjoyed good health until a fortnight ago when she had an attack of influenza and bronchitis, and, in spite of all that medical skill and devoted and loving care could do, she passed into her rest on the evening of September 14th. The funeral, which took place in the Brakpan Cemetery, was conducted by the Rev. Jas. H. REED, Wesleyan Minister, and the coffin was born to its last resting place by six grandsons of the deceased, viz., Messrs. Wm. THOMPSON, St. Clair COOPER, Lionel COOPER, Neville LEACH, Edward PITT, and Eric PITT. The other members of the family present at the graveside were Mr. and Mrs. RAWSTORNE and the Misses RAWSTORNE (Brakpan), Mrs. LEACH, Miss LEACH and Mr. N. LEACH (Potchefstroom), Mr. Chas. COOPER and Miss COOPER (West Springs), Mr. and Mrs. PITT and sons (2) Potchefstroom, Mr. and Mrs. Lionel COOPER, Mrs. Arthur COOPER and Master Boyd COOPER (Basutoland), Mr. Wm.

The Late Mrs. BERRY.

The passing of the late Nurse BERRY – known to all as "Grannie" – removes another old resident of Queenstown. The deceased lady came to Queenstown in the year 1874 and started her maternity home, which she continued up to a few years ago. During her long period of nursing well over a thousand cases were attended by her, and many a man and woman living today owe their lives to her skilful nursing, care and attention. She was of a genial and kindhearted disposition, but of a very independent spirit, and preferred to fend for herself, which she did up till a month ago, when, owing to failing health, she was obliged to give in and went to reside with her daughter, Mrs. ROBINSON, where she received every loving care and attention until the end came. Surviving her are two children, nine grand children, and eighteen great-grand children.

Obituary.

The death occurred on Monday afternoon in the Umtata Hospital of Mr. Robert VIEDGE, of Viedgeville, following an operation necessitated by the motor accident in which the deceased gentleman was concerned last week, says the "Daily Dispatch." His death means a distinct loss to the Territories, in the affairs of which the late Mr. VIEDGE took great interest, always ready to lend his advice and assistance to any movement which had for its object the progress and development of the Territories in which he had made his home. Coming to the Transkei as a young man, Mr. VIEDGE opened a trading station, and with characteristic farsightedness extended his operations until the time of his death he controlled between thirty and forty stations. He was keenly interested in the Old Transkei Trader's Association, and when out of this sprang the Transkei Civic Association he became vice-president of the latter, and continued so until the time of his death. His foresight of business acumen were of the utmost value to both associations. At one time he was approached by request that he would allow himself to be nominated for the Cape Provincial Council, a project which was cast into abeyance by the Great War since which Mr. VIEDGE lived a more retired life. Mr. VIEDGE who was sixty-five years of age, leaves a widow and nine children, three of his sons being pupils at Selborne College at East London, and to the widow and family we extend our sympathy in their sudden bereavement.
