703. Shaw Redway Strickland

Word was received on Saturday last from Private Shaw Strickland that he was leaving England within the next few days, and returning home to Australia. The Forties soldier was early in the firing line, and not long there before he received a bullet through the shoulder. Since then he has been convalescing in Egypt and England, and it would appear that the wound does not heal, and may take some time more to do so. Shaw will receive a royal reception on his return to his native town.

155. Joseph Stanton

Death of Mr. J. Stanton
By the death of Mr. Joseph Stanton, which took place his residence, High Street, on Tuesday, Penrith loses one of its most estimable citizens. This community has reason to mourn his death, for he belonged to it in a very true sense, inasmuch as he was born at Castlreagh, lived in the Nepean district all his life and gained by his communal activities, his affability, and his blamelesness the valuabe fiendship of many. His mother and his grandmother were both Australian-born, his father being a Cornishman. Deceased was 71 years of age last September. When a young man Mr. Stanton went into business in Penrith, for years conducting a store in High Street. Some twenty years ago he relinquished the business and took up his residence in the commodious house opposite, which continued to be his home up to the time of his death. It was as a member of the Methodist Church that his public labors were chiefly known, and in that way he gave most faithful service. He was one of the very few left who went to the first Methodist denominational day school at Castlereagh, and throughout his life, both as a youth at Castlereagh and later in manhood at Penrith, he was most actively identified with the affairs of the church. Three positions in his stewardship that he held for many years and maintained till his death were those of trustee, local preacher, and a member of the Quartlery Meeting, and for some time he was superintendent of the Sunday School. His father before him was a trustee of the churrch, and one of its devoted members. Deceased training had taught him the luxury of doing good,'and he exercised it in an unostentatious but enthusiastic manner. Mr. Stanton evinced interest in circuit matters right to the last. He usually enjoyed good health, and only became seriously ill within the last few weeks . Deceased was twice married, his first wife pre-deceasing him many years. He is survived by his second wife, and his two sons and six daughters, viz.: Mr. Kendall Stanton (Haberflield) who served with the A.I.F Mr. Geoffery Stanton (in the service of the Bank of N.S.W., Penrith), Mrs. P. Walker (Emu Plains), Mrs. A. Hooney (Ashfleld), and Misses Grace, Hesba Eileen and Enid Stanton. There ae six grandchildren and deceased also leaves two brothers . (Mr. William Stanton, of Kogarah, and Mr. Josiah Stanton, of Castlereagh) and one sister (Mrs. Lennox, of Penrith). Another sister, - Mrs. Lamrock, of Orange, pre-deceased him. The funeral took place on Wednesday afternoon. The body was taken to Penrith Methodist Church), where a very impressive service was conducted by Rev. S. 0. Roberts. He was assisted by Revs. J. B. Penman and J. Tarn, formerly of Penrith circuit, both, of whom lmade reference to Mr. Stanton's devout life, ephasising his faithfulness and readiness for service. The hymns "Thy Will Be Done" and Abide With Me were sung; ' Mrs Hand presiding at the organ. The interment took place in the methodist portion of the general cemetery, Kingswood, many relatives and friends attending at the graveside. Prayers were offered by Revs. Penman and Tarn and Rev.

Committal. A large number; of beautiful wreaths gave fragrant testimony to the widespread esteem which Mr. Stanton enjoyed. A memorial service will be conducted by-Rev. S. 0. Roberts in the Methodist Church at 7.15 on Sunday,27th inst. ' .

788. John Marsh Jones

Death Mr John Marsh Jones
News of the untimely death of John Marsh Jones, which sad event took place last Sunday afternoon, cast quite a gloom over the whole community. About a fortnight previous the deceased contracted measles, and subsequently other complications set in, the cause of death being menin- gitis, with which he suffered far a few days previous. The deceased gentleman, who was the eldest son of Mr John Jones, senr., of Belmore, was only 31 years of age. Perhaps no person in the district had less enemies or more friends ; his generous and kind disposition combined with an honest, upright nature, endearing him to all with whom he came in contact. We join in the widespread sympathy extended to the relatives in their sad hour of affliction. The funeral, whichtook place on Monday afternoon last, was one of the largest seen in the dis- strict. The burial took place in the Methodist portion of the local cemetery, the prayers at the grave being read by the Rev. D D Hunter, of Cowra. Mr R Ayrton carried out the funeral arrangements.
