pioneer residents when the death of
Mr. David Charles Carrison took
place a few days ago. . Well liked
and highly respected by all who
knew him, Mr. Carrison's passing at
the age of 77 years, after a short ill
ness, has caused widespread regret.

Victoria, but nearly all his life was
spent at Port MacDonnell, where he
arrived at the age of three years

and also took a great interest in
cricket,. particularly as a bowler.

ainst Mount Gambler. On May 21,
