MR. THOMAS ALBURY.
As briefly mentioned in the "Camden News" last week, Mr. Thomas Albury died at his residence, Elderslie, on the 24th. inst. Mr. Albury was one of the oldest identities of the district, born at Cobbitty 88 years ago. His father, the late William Albury, who died at Orangeville over 50 years ago, first lived at Cobbitty, then set tling on the land at Theresa Park, and in 1863 ventured further afield and took up land at Orangeville. The late Mr. Thos. Albury was then only seven years of age. It was at Orangeville the subject of this obituary laboured for very many years as an orchardist and agriculturist. The corner post of his father's first orchard, erected in 1853, is still standing. This was the first orchard in that district, and adjoins the property now held by Mr. W. Stevens. Apples, pears and oranges were the main crops; so that district has been renown for its fruit for over 80 years, it is to the credit of those old pioneers that success has followed their efforts. Mr. Albury married Miss Stinson, of the Windsor district, who had deceased him, and some years later he married Miss Maria Taylor, of the Junee district, who now mourns the loss of a faithful husband. On disposing of his Orangeville property, Mr. Albury went to live at Crookwell, but was only there a year or two, when he purchased property at Elderslie, and again turned his trained mind to orchard work. He resided there up to the time of his death at the wonderful old age of 88 years. The funeral on Friday was well attended by many old friends, in spite of the heavy rain that fell that day. The Rev. A. F. Pain, rector of Cobbitty Parish, which includes St. Thomas Church, Elderslie, for which deceased held office for many years, conducted the burial service both at St. John's and at the graveside.

9. Henry Timmins
There died at Yarramundi, on Saturday morning last, a very old resident, in the person of Mr Henry Timmins, at the ripe age of 86 years. His end was Bidden for he passed from this world in the short space of about a quarter of an hour. He was respected by all who knew him, andthe funeral was one of the largest ever seen from this portion of the globe—people coming from far and near. He married Elisabeth Howell who predeceased him some twelve months ago. They reared a large family, and they have, and justly so, been quoted as typical specimens of the Hawkesbury native. His brother William survives him, has put up the exceptional score of 90 years, and, despite the failure of his eyesight, can walk about with the aid of a stick. I was taken back when I heard Henry Timmins was dead. I had passed his home only something like one hour before, and he, his son, and a neighbour were talking in front of his house and as I passed we exchanged a few jolly remarks, but little then I thought in such a short space of time Henry would be no more. But such a death he always wished for—and it not always we get our wish—but Henry stood well with the Great Director. And there we leave him resting assured that if he had his faults he had many excellent qualities, and that when - all are weighed in balances by the Just One he will turn the scales on the right side.
