516. Ernest Matthew Gallard

Sad Fatality at Kellyville.
Ernest Gallard Drowned.
A sad fatal accident occurred on Thursday night, whilst Ernest Gallard, a well known young man of our district, was bathing in a water-hole at Kellyville near Mr. M. Pearce's premises, with two companions — Ernest Shayler and Joseph Anlezark. The particulars to hand as yet are but meagre, but it appears that after
the heat of the day the young men decided to try a bath. The night was rather dark. Gallard and Shayler were both good swimmers, and they started together from one bank to the other. Shayler called out to deceased "Come along," and Gallard replied from out of the darkness "Where are you?" Then, all was silent; but for the splashing of the leading swimmer, as he made a landing at the further bank. As Gallard could not be seen then, his comrade swam back to about the centre of the pool, and there he found Gallard apparently in difficulties, and sinking for the second time, He sank before Shayler could render him any effective aid; and, though, when he rose again to the surface, his friend tried to grab him by the hair to assist him to the bank once more, the efforts of rescue were of no avail. The young fellow's hair was too short; and he slipped from Shayler's grasp, and sank in 12 feet of water. As it seemed impossible to find his body, word was sent at once to the Rouse Hill police, three miles away; and in the course of a couple of hours the deceased's body was discovered and taken from the water. Of course Gallard was then quite dead. The occurrence has cast a deep gloom over the whole neighbourhood. Gallard was a young man about 20 years of age, and unmarried. He lived near "Broadview," Pennant Hills Road; and was the son of Mr. Mat. Gallard of that district. A magisterial inquiry will be held at Kellyville, at 11 a.m. to-day.

There was a very large representation of the fruitgrowing district of Central Cumberland in the cortege, for the members of deceased's family are very well-known locally. On the coffin were laid several very handsome wreaths. Messrs. Wilkinson and Metcalfe had charge of the arrangements in connection with the funeral.

Just before last Christmns, a mammoth red gum tree took fire at the top branches when the bush conflagrations were raging, and, notwithstanding rain in the, meantime, has been burning ever since. On Wednesday night it was burning as brightly as ever, limb after limb being gradually eaten off by the fiend until it is now within 15 feet of the butt. The trunk of tbe tree, notwithstanding, is still sending out sturdy young shoots.

Grower of Famous Apple.
A movement has been initiated at Eastwood to perpetuate the memory ot Granny Smith, a pioneer of the district, who gained world wide renown by producing the apple which bears her name. Mr. Luke Gallard, an inspector connected with the Department of Agriculture of New South Wales, has already taken steps to raise funds for erecting a tablet on the roadside adjacent to the farm where the famous apple was raised. Mr. Gallard, who lives at Lovell-road, Eastwood, within a stone's throw of where the first Granny Smith apple tree was raised, is of opinion that orchardists throughout Australia would be interested in a proposal to erect a fitting memorial tablet.
Just on 70 years ago, on the Great North road, between Lovell and Balaclava roads, Eastwood, lived an old lady named Smith, who, assisted by two sons, conducted an orchard. The location is midway between Ryde and Eastwood. A lengthy search failed to disclose the Christian name of the sturdy old pioneer, but when one mentions "Granny" Smith, the faces of the district veterans light up with instant recognition. For "Granny" Smith earned world-wide fame by raising the first tree, on which was grown what is generally recognised as the world's most valuable apple, which is named after the sturdy old lady who lived on the hill between Ryde and Eastwood. Orchardists will tell you that the Granny Smith apple has many virtues but no faults. The green unripe apple, when cooked, is delicious, and no better eating apple is obtainable than the matured Granny Smith, which has long since become one of the world's standard apples.
The first Granny Smith apple tree grew up unexpectedly, at the side of the cottage occupied by the old lady. It was a sturdy seedling, and the sons of the owner of the orchard tended it carefully. When the tree produced its first crop of apples, the orchardists of the day sat up and took notice. For here was an apple the like of which had never before been seen. To-day, according to Mr. Luke Gallard, it is the most-sought apple inthe world.
The old cottage occupied by Granny Smith has long since been demolished. The original property was subdivided and sold, and the block on which the famous apple was produced is now owned by Lackersteens, the manufacturers of sauce and condiments. To- day the place is known as Lackersteen's paddock, and is mainly used as a ground for friendly cricket matches.
A legend is to the effect that Granny Smith purchased a fine apple and planted the seeds, and the famous apple is the result. "I do not think there is much in that story," commented Mr. Gallard. "My own opinion is that the Granny Smith is a freak apple, which came into being as the result of a combination of favourable circumstances. This I do know, the Granny Smith has held its place for half a century as the finest apple for the grower. It is in truth a wonder apple."
