It is with regret that we have to record the death of Mr. Frederick John Barr, which came with tragic suddenness on Thursday last. The deceased, who was 44 years of age, was the third son of the late Mr. Alex. Barr and Mrs. Barr, and was a most highly respected resident of the district, where he had resided for many years, having been employployed on 'Happy Valley' for the past fourteen years. He had been engaged with others in clearing up the shed at Mr. D. Shannon's after shearing, and complained of not feeling well. He walked out of the shed and collapsed, and died immediately.

Deceased leaves a widow and one daughter. Besides the mother, there are six sisters, Mrs. E. Duncan (Chatswood), Mrs. E. Barrett (Orange), Mrs. J. Richens (Young), Mrs. E. Bush (Forbes), Mrs. D. Gibb (Grenfell) and Mrs. A. Luthje (Grenfell) and two brothers, Messrs. Alex. (Cowra) and James (Grenfell).

The funeral on Friday was largely attended. A short service was held in Holy Trinity Church, after which the funeral left for the Church of England cemetery. Rev. N. G. F. Cooke officiated. To the widow, daughter, mother and members of the family is extended a large measure of sympathy in their sad and sudden bereavement.
