SUICIDE AT RYDE.
An elderly man named William Mackay Johnston, who had been staying with a friend at Ryde, was on Saturday found dead in a paddock some few yards from the residence. Near him was an open, razor, while his head was found to be almost severed from the body. The matter was reported to the police, and Mr. MacNevin, P.M., of Parramatta, held an inquiry into the circumstances. The deceased had, it appears, come from the country about Christmas time, and prior to his death had been extremely despondent. A finding of death from injuries self-inflicted, while suffering from temporary derangement of the mind, was recorded.

OUR LAIDLEY LETTER.
(From Our Own Correspondent.)
Orange Blossoms.
August 2,
Another of those very interesting and picturesque German weddings eventuated here yesterday. The actual ceremony took place at the Hatton Vale Lutheran Church, and was performed by the Rev. M. Millat, but both bride and bridegroom belong to North Laidley, where their respective families have resided for a great number of years. The bridegroom, Mr. Charles Loose, is the youngest son of Mr. John Loose, while the bride, Miss Minnie Bliesner, is the third daughter of Mr. Adolph Bliesner, the two families occupying farms adjacent to each other at North Laidley. The wedding was rendered the more interesting as only a short time ago the couple acted as bridesmaid and best man at the wedding of the former's brother to the latter's sister. At the wedding yesterday the party formed a pretty group. The bride wore a cream muslin costume, trimmed with white and yellow ribbons, her handsome embroidered veil being surmounted with the orthodox orange blossom wreath. Her two bridesmaids, Misses Lena Bliesner and Annie Kanofski, were attired in white muslin dresses, the former wearing a blue sash and trimmings, while the latter appeared in corresponding trimmings of cardinal. The groomsmen were Messrs. August Bliesner and John Kanofski, brothers of the bridesmaids,and they looked very taking in their gay vari-coloured ribbon decorations and orange-blossom favours. The church is about 11 miles distant from the residence of the bride's parents, where the festivities were carried out, but the journey thither and back was soon accomplished.

OBITUARY.
We are sorry to have to record the sudden death yesterday of Mr. John Johnston, of Pitt Town, one of our best known and most highly respected and successful farmers. Mr. Johnston, whilst out on his farm yesterday morning, had an apopletic seizure. He was carried to his home, and Dr. Gibson was sent for, but he never rallied, and in a couple of hours was gone. It was a great shock to the family, and to his numerous relatives and friends, and much sympathy is expressed for the bereaved. Deceased was 66 years of age, and leaves a wife and family of eight - Misses Elizabeth, Sarah, and Rubie, and Messrs. A. G., W. H., Ebenezer, Matthew, and Ernest. He was brother to Messrs. W. H. (deceased), G. T. (deceased), J. H., Misses Georgina and Louisa, and Mesdames W. Beard and G. S. Greenwell (Windsor), John Walmsley (Wollombi), and James Jurd, sen. (St. Albans).

OBITUARY
One of the best and most loveable old natives of the Hawkesbury, in the person of Mrs. Maria Cobcroft, relict of the late George Cobcroft, passed away at Wilberforce on the 5th instant, after a short illness, The deceased was 86 years of age, and had spent the whole of her life in the Hawkesbury district, living some time at Colo, and for a lengthy period at Wilberforce. She leaves a numerous line of descendants, including eight sons and daughters, 54 grand-children, and 17 great grand-children. The late Mr. George Cobcroft died some 20 years ago. The name of the late Mrs. Cobcroft was synonymous with all that was good and praiseworthy, and perhaps no family is more respected in this district than the Cobcroft family. They have been associated with the Hawkesbury from its earliest settlement, and it is a name that is known and venerated throughout New South Wales. The subject of this notice was one of the finest characters in the district, and go where you will you hear the same story: "She was a grand old soul, and will be missed by scores whom she has befriended and helped." And so she was, and died as she lived - an honest, charitable, Christian woman. There was none of the namby-pamby sort of religion in her; she made no outward show of her good works, nor sought praise for what she did. She cared not what people thought of her, and never offended her own conscience in order to gain popular approbation. Her life was a grand example to all, and those who knew the bright-spirited, big-hearted, benevolent woman loved her best. She has been laid to rest, and though she had been permitted to live beyond the allotted span, general regret is expressed at her death. She had a family of nine, one of whom (the late Mrs Andrew Stephens) pre-deceased her. Those living are : Mrs. Paul Bushell, Mrs. John Turnbull (Wilberforce), Mrs. W. J. Farlow (Freeman's Reach), Mrs. F. E. Barker (Moorbank, Liverpool), Mrs. George B. Johnston (Wilberforce), Miss Maria Cobcroft (who has always lived at home, and was deeply attached to her mother) and Messrs. Samuel and John Cobcroft, of Wilberforce. All of these are well-known throughout tbe district, and are worthy descendants of the good woman. The burial took place on Wednesday afternoon of last week, and a very large concourse of people assembled to show their respect for the deceased and her living relations. Messrs. G. Nicholls, J.P., G. Greentree, J.P., F. Stubbs, and T. Bowd acted as pall-bearers. The cortege proceeded to the pretty Church on the hill, and a service was conducted therein by the rector, Rev. W. S. Newton, M.A. Miss L. E. Buttsworth played the "Dead March" as the mourners entered the Church, and again as they came out.
The minister took occasion to refer to the beautiful life that had just closed, and to her noble and self-denying character, putting her Christian life forward as an example for all. He then announced that the departed lady had expressly asked that her favorite hymn "What a friend we have in Jesus," should be sung at her funeral, and the choir rendered it with feeling. The last sad rites were performed at the graveside by the rector, and the funeral arrangements were carried out by Mr. R. W. Dunstan, of Windsor.

Once more the angel of death has visited our township, and to-morrow the youngest son of Mr. W. Devantier will be laid to rest in his narrow cell for evermore. He was a bright little fellow, and was just at that age when children are so interesting, but, while teething, convulsions set in, and though he had every care and unremitting attention he passed away this morning. Much sympathy is felt for Mr. and Mrs. Devantier in their sad loss.

DEATH OF MR. XAVIER SCHEKOSKE.
A Wondai correspondent writes under date of the 30th ultimo: - This death will be a surprise to many of your readers. Mr. Schekoske was born in Germany, and was two years of age when he came with his father to Queensland. He had spent the prime of his life as a farm labourer, and was known to many people in the West Moreton district. He was also a member of the Lowood Volunteer Force. After marriage to the second daughter of Mr. G. Steele, of Glamorgan Vale, he had settled down on a portion of his father's farm, known as Valentine Schekoske's farm, at Glamorgan Vale, and there he engaged in farming and dairying. In 1901 he selected a much larger area of land in the rising settlement of Wondai, where he followed farming and dairying pursuits, in the course of which he had to face a lot of difficulties inseparable from pioneering in a new centre. Some five months ago he was taken ill, and entered the Brisbane General Hospital, where he remained for over six weeks. Being then considerably better he paid a visit to some of his friends in the Ipswich locality, and then returned home, but again became seriously ill, and was taken to the Marybrough General Hospital, where, three days afterwards, on the 13th of August, he died, at the age of 35 years, leaving a widow and five small children to mourn their loss. Mr. Schekoske, who was a very hard-working man, will be greatly regretted in this neighbourhood, having been a member of the committee of the Mondure North School, in which he took a keen interest.

THE LATE MRS. SUCHTING.
On Wednesday evening, the 11th instant (writes a correspondent), a memorial service was held In the Christian Chapel, Vernor, in connection with the late Mrs. F. Suchting (an account of whose death appeared in your Fernvale letter of Thursday last). There was a large attendance of friends and sympathisers, the building bring packed, marked attention being paid throughout the whole of the service, which was conducted by Mr. W. L. Jones (Evangelist of the Churches of Christ in West Moreton). Hymns appropriate to the occasion were sung. A short address in German was given by Mr. F. Aderman, sen., who made feeling references to the sterling qualities of the deceased lady as a church member, and to the assistance she rendered as a singer. In closing his remarks he exhorted all present to practice all the virtues possessed by the deceased. The evangelist took for the basis of his remarks I. Cor. 15-55 ("O, death, where is my sting? O, grave, where is thy victory ?"), and in a very solemn manner spoke of the uncertainty of life, and reminding his audience that death was no respecter of persons, and that when the summons came all must obey. Yet to the Christian death was but the portal to those mansions aboveā€”a stepping-stone to the life beyond, a gate-way into the presence of the King. He urged his hearers to obey the precepts of the Lord, and to prepare for eternity. Their sister had left them, but they mourned not as those without hope. They could all be victorious over sin from within and without and through Jesus our Lord. After singing the hymn "Will you be ready when the Bridegroom comes ?" a very impressive service was brought to a close.

DEATH OF MR. CHRISTIAN SPANN
Quite a gloom was cast over Dundas and the surronding districts on Saturday last, (writes our Fernvale correspondent) when it became known that Mr. Christian Frederick Spann (eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. William Spann, old and highly respected residents of Dundas had passed quietly away in the Ipswich hospital. The deceased had been an inmate of the above institution for about a fortnight previous to his demise, but had so far recovered that, when his parents visited him on Thursday last, he expressed a wish to be allowed to return home with them. It was deemed advisable to detain him for a few days longer, and, as he felt so well, he was allowed to walk round the spacious verandahs of the hospital. After returning from one of these walks on Saturday morning last, Mr. Spann complained of a giddiness in the head, and Dr. Thornton was immediately summoned, but, despite the exercise of his medical skill, the young man passed peacefully away inside of a few mlnutes, the immediate cause of death being failure of the heart's action. The deceased, who was 28 years of age, was a fine strapping young man, who was equally at home when riding a young and fiery steed, or when driving his favourite team of bullocks from Dundas to Fernvale. His body was conveyed to the latter township on Saturday night, and his mortal remains were interred in the local cemetery on Sunday afternoon. The respect and esteem in which the deceased young man was held was manifest from the fact that his funeral was the largest ever seen in the district. The corteze being preceeded by the members of the local Rose of Fernvale Lodge, of which he had been a member. The utmost sympathy is felt for the parents, who have lost a good and dutiful son, and for his young widow, and three-months-old babe, who are left to mourn their sad loss. The service at the graveside was impressively conducted by the Rev. W. S. Bath, of Lowood, who made touching references to the sad occasion.

TRIPLE WEDDING.
A triple wedding is something unique in the history of modern marriage celebrations, and there is something romantic associated with it which cannot fail to interest even the most unimpressionable person. A triple wedding which was celebrated in lpswich yesterday, attracted exceptional attention. St. Mary's Roman Catholic Church was the scene of the solemnisation, and the celebrant was the Rev. P. Brady. The following were the contracting parties : - Miss Nellie Newman (daughter of Mr. John Newman Sandy Creek, Coominya), and Mr. Patrick Conroy (son of Mr. Hugh Conroy, of "Castlehome," Deep Creek, Mount Brisbane) ; Miss Mary Newman, daughter of Mr. John Newman, of Sandy Creek, Coominya), and Mr. James Gannon (son of Mr. Michael Gannon, of Mount Hallon) ; and Miss Ellen Carew, (sister of Mrs. James Copeley, Stanley River), and Mr. James Conroy (son of Mr. Hugh Conroy of "Castlehome," Deep Creek, Mount Brisbane). Miss Nellie Newman was attended by Misses Minnie Conroy, and Lizzie Newman, as bridesmaids ; Miss Mary Newman by Miss Rose Gannon, and Mary Tuite : and Miss Carew by Miss Katie Copeley. Mr. T. Newman
acted as groomsman for Mr. Patrick Conroy : Mr. James Newman, for Mr. Gannon and Cr. Thomas Conroy, for Mr. James Conroy. Each bride and bridesmaid wore a very handsome dress of delicate texture, and each costume was finished in a truly artistic manner. The three couples were simultaneously united in the bonds of holy matrimony, and as they left the church much rice and confetti were in evidence. An adjournment was made to Mr. F. W. Whitehouse's Cafe, where a recherche wedding breakfast was partaken of. The Rev. P. Brady presided and the newly-married pairs occupied positions of honour. After justice had been done to the choice things provided, a number of felicitous speeches were made, in which each happy pair was wished prosperity and long life. In the course of the afternoon Mr. and Mrs. Gannon left Ipswich for Sandgate : and Mr. and Mrs. Patrick and James Conroy for Southport : where the respective honeymoons will be spent. Numerous presents were received, amongst them being many of a choice and costly character.

DEATH OF MR. L. TRONC.
The many friends of Mr. Louis Tronc (eldest son of Mr. H. Tronc, an old and much-respected resident of the
Kirchheim district) will regret to hear of his untimely death, which occurred in the Ipswich Hospital on Thursday morning last. The deceased had been enjoying robust health until his removal to Ipswich about a month ago, when he complained of being unwell, his condition becoming so serious that he had to seek medical aid and become an inmate of the Ipswich Hospital, some eight days ago. Hopes were entertained of his recovery, but these were only short-lived, and he passed peacefully away at the time stated. The funeral took place at 3 o'clock on Thursday afternoon, the cortege being very large, consisting mostly of his Ipswich and Marburg friends. The remains were interred in the Ipswich Cemetery, the Rev. T. L. H. Jenkyn, B.A. (rector of St. Paul's Church), conducting the service at the graveside.

OBITUARY.
MRS. ELLEN GRAY.
There passed away, on Sunday evening, at the age of 83 years, the much respected and kind-hearted old lady, Mrs. Ellen Gray, relict of the late Mr. Laurence Gray (writes our Roadvale correspondent). Mrs. Gray was ill only for a few days. Dr. South, Boonah, attended her, and, I heard, he had no hopes of her recovery. Mrs. Gray was left in easy circumstances by her husband, who deceased her a few years ago. She was a familiar figure in Roadvale, and had a free entrance, at all times, to the School of Arts, by reason of her husband's liberality at its founding. She had a kind word for everybody, and soothing words for anyone in trouble. I may say of Mrs. Gray that she was one of the good old sort, and the large attendance at her funeral on Monday simply testified to the regard in which she was held. The Rev. C. H.

Shaw-Riek.
The new Methodist Church at Roadvale was the scene of a pretty wedding on 21st instant (writes our Harrisville correspondent). The bridegroom was Mr. J. W. Shaw (Methodist circuit missionary in the Boonah circuit, and son of Mr. R. Shaw and the late Mrs. Shaw, of Howard), and the bride Miss Dora A. L. Riek (fourth daughter of the late Mr. W. Riek and Mrs. Riek, of Hillcrest, Anthony). The church was filled to overflowing long before the hour appointed for the ceremony. A number of friends had decorated the building most artistically and a large floral wedding bell was suspended over the bride and bridegroom. The bride was given away by her brother (Mr. W. Riek). Mr. Arthur Riek acted as best man, and Misses E. Draheim and L. Hang (nieces of the bride) as bridesmaids. They wore frocks of white silk and becoming hats, and also wore gold brooches (the gifts of the bridegroom). The bride wore a dainty gown of ivory satin with double skirt, the bodice richly trimmed with silk applique and cord, she also wore a veil of tulle with coronet of orange blossoms, and carried a shower bouquet (a gift from Mrs. Turner, of Roadvale). The Rev. H. Reid (minister of the circuit) performed the ceremony and Mrs. W. Alcorn played the "Wedding March"' as the bridal party left the church. Subsequently Mrs. W. Riek (mother of the bride) entertained a large number of guests at Hillcrest in honour of the occasion, when the Rev. H. Reid presided.
The usual toasts were honoured, and a very enjoyable time was spent. Many valuable presents were received, and as it was the first wedding in the new church the trustees followed the time honoured custom of presenting the bride and bridegroom with a valuable Bible. The bride's travelling dress was of lavender linen, trimmed with black braid, and black San Toy hat, trimmed with grass and wheat ears. The bridegroom's gift to the bride was a beautiful gold brooch set with rubies, and the bride gave the bridegroom a set of initialled gold studs. Mr. and Mrs. Shaw left by the afternoon train for Sandgate, where the honeymoon is being spent.

EGGERT - ZIILMANN.
The Lutheran Church, Milbong, was the scene of a very pretty and interesting wedding on Wednesday last, when Mr. August Frederich Wilhelm Eggert (third son of Mr. C. Eggert, Roadvale) and Miss Teheresa Louisa Wilhelmina Zillmann (youngest daughter of the late Mr. Henry Zillmann and Mrs. Zillmann, Roadvale) were united in the holy bonds of matrimony. The Rev. R. Manz conducted the ceremony, which was performed in the presence of about 40 relatives and friends of the happy couple. Mr. W. Raabe presided at the organ, and as the people were entering the Church, played Lohengrin's "Bridal March." The bride, who was given away by her brother-in-law, Mr. R.
