281. Arthur Hamilton Mackie

The death occurred at Culcairn on Tuesday last of a former well-known resident and business man of Narrandera, Mr. Arthur Hamilton Mackie, at the age of 74 years. Mr. Mackie came to Narrandera about 1900 as a draper for H. S. Rich the old Challenge Store at the intersection of East and Bolton Streets. In 1905 he retired from the employ of Messrs. Rich and entered into partnership with a fellow employee in the Challenge Store, Mr. R. H. Hankinson, who was head grocer there at the time in acquiring the store at Grong Grong. The business at Grong Grong was carried on successfully for a period, when the partners purchased the business of their former employers, and carried on the Challenge Stores as well as the business at Grong Grong.  After a lime the partnership was dissolved and Mr. Hankinson remained in control of the Narrandera and Grong Grong stores, while Mr. Mackie acquired a business at Germanton (now Holbrook). In this business he was most successful, and later acquired a pastoral property in the Holbrook-Culcairn district. Since leaving Narrandera he has devoted himself mainly to business and pastoral pursuits.  While residing in Narrandera he married Miss Mary Charlton, daughter of a former well-known resident of this town, members of which still reside here. Some time ago he retired from pastoral pursuits and his son Gordon is in charge of the pastoral property.  He is survived by his wife and a small grown-up family. The Rev. H. Mackie, for many years in charge of the Hay Presbyterian Church, is a brother. The Rev. Mackie is now engaged in pastoral pursuits in the Hay district. We understand that another brother is engaged in pastoral pursuits in the Culcairn district. Throughout their long acquaintance Messrs. Mackie and Hankinson have kept in touch with each other and a firm friendship has continued.

MR. THOMAS CURL
THE residents of Windsor and district learned with deep regret on Wednesday morning of the sudden passing of one of the town's most prominent and widely known residents, in the person of Mr. Thomas Curl, at the age of 74 years, deceased, during the past 35 years having been one of Windsor's leading citizens. His death came as a sudden shock to his relatives and to the whole community, as, although he had not enjoyed the best of health during the past few months, his condition was not at any time deemed serious enough to cause any grave anxiety. The late Mr. Curl was born at Pitt Town, and when a young man answered the call of adventure, joining a sailing ship which ultimately took him around the world on no less than five occasions, and in later years the stories of his adventures, when he was disposed to relate them, never failed to hold an interested audience. Leaving the sea, deceased later returned to his native Hawkesbury, and at Windsor acquired the Royal Hotel, which he personally conducted for a period of over 20years, winning for himself a State-wide reputation as a capable and obliging host. The late Mr. Curl was ever ready to support any movement for the betterment of Windsor and the district generally, and was a generous donor to any worthy cause. His main pastime was shooting, and throughout his life in Windsor he was a very keen supporter of the local rifle club, being for a great number of years one of its executive officers. The late Mr. Curl was a man the community could ill afford to lose, and we join with his host of district-wide friends in conveying the deepest sympathy to his bereaved relatives. He is survived by his widow and five children, there being four daughters, Doris (Mrs. Carey, Windsor), Hazel (Mrs. Fred Farlow, Windsor), and Misses Alma and Janet (Windsor), and one son, John (Windsor). The funeral leaves his late residence this (Thursday) afternoon, for the Rookwood Crematorium.
