Our Eudunda correspondent writes, under
date September 13:—"Much surprise was
caused in the town this morning when it
became known that Mr. August Kluske had
died during the night. Mr. Kluske, who
had been under medical care for some
time, and had recently been to Adelaide
to undergo an operation, was supposed to
be getting better, but during the last few
days he became rapidly worse, passing
away about 1 o'clock this morning. The
deceased gentleman was a colonist of 50
years, having landed in the colony early
in the year 1850, when about 15 or 16 years
of age. He at once engaged himself with
the late Mr. Edward Bagot, of Bagot's
Well station, where he remained some
time. Having married Miss Preusker, he
bought a farm on the Moppa, near Angas
ton, where he resided a few years. Re
moving to the Eudunda district, he pur
chased a farm, on which he resided until
his death—something like 30 years, during
which time Mr. Kluske had been closely
connected with Eudunda and the surround
ing district in business and other ways.
For many years he carried on a butchering
business in Eudunda, where by his genial
manner and business habits he made a host
of friends. As a. farmer Mr. Kluske was
very successful. He was one of the first in
the district to go in for the modern-system
of' farming, including the use of the seed
drill and artificial manures, and the know
ledge acquired was always at the disposal
of any who might need it. As one of the
first members of the local branch of the
Agricultural Bureau Mr. Kluske was, and
continued to be up to the time of his
death, a most valuable member, and it was
always a pleasure for the members of the

branch to spend an afternoon at his farm.
He was also a member of the Agricultural
Society, and had held the position of coun
cillor in the district council of Neales. Mr.
Kluske, who had reached the age of 66,
had up to about four months ago been a
very healthy man, and one who delighted
in work. Mr. Kluske had had some re
verses, as most farmers in this district have.
For three years in succession he sowed 500
acres of land without reaping a grain of
wheat, but he plodded on, and success at-
tended his efforts. The homestead and
garden left behind point to the result of
thrift and perseverance. Mr Kluske leaves
a wife, nine children, and six grand
children, for whom much sympathy is felt
in their time of sorrow.
