The Late Mr. J. W. Huqall.—Mr. J. W.
Hugall, who died at Strathalbyn on Thursday
night week, after a residence in the town of
twenty years' duration, was a very old colonist.
Born at Poplar, in England, in 1818, he came
out in his boyhood to Tasmania with his
mother, and of his. experiences in the little .
island he had many tales to tell. Early in his
colonial career he followed whaling pur-
suits. Abandoning the sea life he came to
South Australia in 1841, and, starting in busi-
ness in Adelaide as a baker and confectioner
in Hindley-street, his establishment developed
into one of the leading shops in the embryo
city. Ho started the running of the first
baker's cart in town, and subsequently im-
ported an ice-maohine, and did the first arti-
ficial freezing in the colonies. His happy and
energetic character pushed him to the front,
and ne was made the Manager of a branch
post-office in the city, and afterwards elected
a Town Councillor. He was instrumental in
organizing many institutions, and was asso-
ciated with stags and entertainment matters
very prominently, the Hon. George Coppin
being one of his intimate friends and co
workers. He was actively connectod with all
public matters, and was to a considerable
extent interested in starting the Advertiser
When the Victorian gold-diggings opened up
Mr. Hugall was one of the speculators, and
after a successful visit to the fields returned to
his business, which had been carried on by his
wife during his absenoe. Mr. Hugall was one
of the very early members of the Volunteer
Force, and was co-partner with Mr. Bennett
in the winner of the St. Leger. He was of a
very wandering disposition, and went to
Sydney in 1872 on behalf of the Aerated Bread
Company; from there he proceeded to the
Hill-End Gold Diggings, but luck deserted
him, and he came back to Adelaide in 1870
and resumed his employment as a baker,
moving to Strathalbyn in 1877. He married
twice, and has left four children by his
first marriage and three by the second, in
addition to grandchildren and three great
grandchildren. The funeral took place on
Saturday morning, a large number of people
following the remains to the local Catholic
