The late Mr. Eather was 52 years of age and up to three weeks, ago was in apparently good health, but some internal malady developed for which he was operated on, but succumbed almost im mediately after.

He then came to reside on his property at The Slopes, where he set out a fine citrus orchard and carried on other agricultural pursuits. The issue of the marriage was one child, a daughter, Miss F. Eather, who resided with her par ents. The funeral took place on Sunday, the remains being brought from Sydney by motor to deceased's late home from whence the funeral started.

The remains were in terred in St. Phillip's Church of England cemetery, North Richmond. The Rev. N. Lloyd conducted the service and Mr. Albert Price carried out the funeral arrangements.
