A young man who would probably
have made, if health and life had been
granted him, a name for himself in
the line of industry he selected, and  
for which he appeared specially adap-
ted by nature, died on Saturday, April
10, Mr. Wm. A. Ploenges, to whom
we refer, was the second son of Mr.
F. W. Ploenges, of the Hd. of Caro-  
line, he was under 30 years of age,
having been born in Mount Gambier
in July, 1890. He was a born engin-
eer ; he was fond of it from his boy-
hood, and would not be turned aside  
from it. At Mount Gambier, as a lad
and young man, he was employed in
the foundries of Messrs. Williams and
Varcoe, and afterwards at Messr.
Kemp's and Shearer's at Mannum, and
other places, where he gained a good
practical insight into mechanics and
engineering. In 1915 he returned to
Mount Gambier, and commenced busi-
ness for himself as a foundry worker,
etc., in a building on the Penola road.
About three years ago he shifted from
there to premises at the corner of
Commercial and Gray-streets, where
he conducted business in a more ex-
tensive way. But his health broke
down before an incurable internal
disease, and ultimately he had to give
up all work. He rapidly declined, and
died, as stated, on April 10, at the re-
sidents of his father in the Hd. of
Caroline. Mr. Ploenges was married
four years ago to Miss Nonie Sutton,
eldest daughter of Mr. T. C. Sutton, of
Compton, and he has left her a widow
with two young children. The funeral
was held on Sunday, April 11, and the
respect in which the deceased was held  
was shown by the large number of  
friends and aquaintances who at-
tended. The last services of religion
were conducted by the Most Rev.
Mons. Ryan.
