We have to record the death of Mr. Ephraim Bunker, a resident of Crookwell for seventeen years. The sad event took place on Tueseday morning, the cause of death being, we believe, abscess on the liver. Deceased was well-known and highly respected. He was a local preacher in connection with the Primitive Methodist Church, and it it not too much to add that he was a most consistent Christian. He leaves a wife and three sons and six daughters, three of the latter being married. Deceased was 67 years of age.
