Death of an Old Resident
Considerable regret was felt throughout the district on Tuesday evening when information was received from Armadale stating that Mr. Elijah Dawson, for about sixty years a resident of this district, had succumbed to an internal complaint. For some years the deceased gentle man had been ailing, but was able to get about; a few weeks ago, how ever, he was compelled to take to his bed, since when he has been a very great sufferer.

Mr. Dawson was the youngest son of one of Western Australia's pioneers, Elijah Dawson, a Waterloo veteran, who arrived here in 1830 in the ship Warrior, and was bowmen what is now known as the Lockevilie estate at Wonnerup, 61 years ago. The whole of his life excepting the past twelve months was therefore spent in this district, and almost wholly connected with the farming industry, "Westbrook," at Newtown, being his old home. Although of a retiring disposition, he took a keen interest in local matters, and held the office of vice-president of the Southern Districts Agricultural and Pastoral Society at the time of leaving the district. His member ship in the Society dates back nearly 40 years ago. Mr. Dawson was also a faithful churchman, and was churchwarden for about 36 years. He also held a commission as a Justice of the Peace for this district He leaves in addition to three sisters and a brother, a wife, six sons and seven daughters to mourn their loss.

The funeral took place at Armadale yesterday. Many expressions of sympathy have been received from old friends, amongst them a telegram from Sir John Forrest with whom deceased was closely acquainted in the early days.
