who died at Tantanoola on Sunday last:
--"Mr. John Telfer was the third son of
Mr. James Telfer, and was born at the
Peel, in Roxburghshire, Scotland, in 1840.
He came out to Adelaide in 1859. For
several years he was in the employ of
the late Mr. A. B. Murray, of Tungkillo.
He went to Tantanoola in 1874, and for
many years was engaged as a butcher
