OBITUARY

MRS. SELINA MUSSON.
We regret to report the death, which occurred from heart failure, at Grey's Hospital yesterday morning, of Selina MUSSON, wife of Mr. W.J. MUSSON, the well-known citizen and formerly one of the most successful building contractors in Maritzburg. The deceased, who was married to Mr. MUSSON in 1887 (Jubilee year), came, like her husband, from the Isle of Wight, and during her eighteen years' residence in the City, enjoyed a wide circle of friends, by all of whom her death will be deeply mourned. For nineteen weeks the late Mrs. MUSSON had suffered from an affection of the heart, brought on by overstraining in an attempt on the part of the deceased lady to draw one of the boats on the river to its moorings.
The funeral will take place at three o'clock this afternoon, leaving the Rustic Tea Rooms and proceeding to the Church of England Cemetery.

OBITUARY

MR. T.B. LLEWELLYN

We regret to have to record the death of a well known City resident, Mr. T.B. LLEWELLYN, which took place at 4.30 yesterday afternoon at Grey's Hospital. Mr. LLEWELLYN suffered only a brief illness. He was removed to the hospital on Saturday owing to an internal complaint, not proving amenable to treatment. It was then found that an operation was necessary, but from this the patient never recovered. Mr. LLEWELLYN was well known to a large circle, including all interested in cricket, being the father of several keen cricketers, including the Hampshire professional, who took part in the South African tour in England.
He was a native of Pembroke, Wales, and came to Natal more than 40 years ago, previous to which his life had been spent on the sea, and he attained the rank of captain in the merchant service. After a short stay at Durban Mr. LLEWELLYN came to Maritzburg, where has resided ever since. It will be among the Temperance and Friendly Societies of the City that he will be missed, as for well over 30 years he was a most devoted and ardent worker. He was a foundation member of the Ark of Safety Tent of the Independent Order of Rechabites, of which Order he instituted a branch here in 1877, and was in office up to a recent date. In fact, it was only last year that the local Rechabites presented Bro.LLEWELLYN with a testimonial on the occasion of his retiring from an office he had held continuously for 33 years. He had also been connected with the Grand Lodge of Natal of the Independent Order of Good Templars from his arrival in Natal, having held nearly every office in the Order. He leaves a widow and five sons.
The funeral takes place from the residence, No. 5, Stranack Street, at five o'clock this afternoon, proceeding to the Wesleyan Cemetery.

MRS. JOHN OXLEY OXLAND

We regret to announce the death of Mrs. John Oxley OXLAND, which took place at Grey's Hospital just before midnight on Monday, after a lingering illness. Her husband, the Rev. OXLAND, pre-deceased her four years ago.
Mrs. OXLAND came to Natal with Bishop and Mrs. CALLAWAY, as their adopted daughter, in the early sixties, and was their right hand in Missionary labours at Springvale, Natal. Subsequently, when the Bishop moved to St. Andrew's Mission Station, in Pondoland, where he founded the Diocese of St. John's, Kaffraria, of which he was first Bishop, Mrs. OXLAND accompanied him, and was there married to the Rev. John Oxley OXLAND, who had come out from England to join the Mission.
Some years later her husband was given charge of the Clydesdale Mission in East Griqualand, and it was there that she spent the last eight devoted years of her Missionary life. The sympathy of a large circle of friends is extended to the bereaved surviving members of the family, Lionel and Bertram (sons) and her daughter (Mrs. McCAUL). The funeral will leave Grey's Hospital this afternoon at 4.45 o'clock, proceeding to St. Saviour's Cathedral, where a short service will be held, prior to the interment in the Church of England Cemetery.

MR. FRANK SEAGER

Mr. Frank SEAGER, who passed away on his farm "Minster," near Mossdale, in Newcastle district, on the 2nd of this month, was a man well-known and appreciated throughout the Province by his sterling qualities and upright living. Of Somersetshire parents, the late Mr. SEAGER spent the greater part of his life near Camperdown, where he married a Miss CRAWLEY, only removing to the Northern Districts after the Boer War. Apart from his striking personality, which bore eloquent testimony of his honourable life, he was in every sense of the word a benefactor and friend to many young men, who to-day must feel that they have not only lost a friend, but one who interested himself in their personal welfare. As a sportsman and a supporter of all manly exercises, Mr. SEAGER was in the front list. His colours were often seen on the racecourse; a first-class shot, and president of the Mossdale Cricket Club, his loss to Mossdale is irreparable. Paralysis brought him to his bed, and to his widow, sons and daughters, the deepest sympathy is extended in their sad affliction.

OBITUARY

MR. WM. WITHYCOMBE
We regret to record the death, which took place early yesterday morning, of an old and esteemed fellow townsman, in the person of Mr. William WITHYCOMBE, at the age of fifty-nine. The late Mr. WITHYCOMBE developed a severe attack of enteric fever some six weeks ago. He afterwards contracted a chill, followed by pneumonia, and eventually he succumbed to the disease at three o'clock yesterday morning. The deceased gentleman was born at Dartmoor, Devonshire, in 1856, and entered the Royal Navy in the year 1871. He came to Natal in January, 1881, with the Naval Contingent which was sent to take part in the first Boer War, and was engaged on the naval transport staff with the late Captain (afterwards Admiral) H.G. ANDOE. He retired from the Navy in March, 1882, and took up an appointment in the Port Department at the Point. He was later transferred to the signal station at the Bluff, where he remained until 1889, when he came to Maritzburg to join the secretarial staff of the City and Suburban and other Gold Mining Companies. In 1883 he was married to Miss Harriet Agnes AIRTH, daughter of the late Captain Alexander AIRTH, for many years Port Captain of Durban, and a notable figure in the early history of Natal.
The late Mr. WITHYCOMBE was noted throughout Natal as a keen rifle shot and an enthusiastic supporter of shooting organisations. In 1892 he organised, in conjunction with Mr. (now Major) T.M. OWEN and the late Mr. J.E. DAVIES, the Maritzburg Rifle Association, with which he was prominently associated throughout its existence, and of which he had been, for some years prior to this death, a vice president. He was also a member of the council of the Natal Rifle Association, and as such had done much to promote the spread of a better knowledge of rifle shooting in the community. Himself a keen and accomplished marksman, Mr. WITHYCOMBE represented Maritzburg against Durban in the annual intertown competitions on no fewer that nineteen occasions in the years 1890 to 1909. He was a foundation member of the Natal Naval Volunteers (now the R.N.V.R.), serving as Chief Petty Officer up to the time of his transference to Maritzburg. Later he joined the old Natal Royal Rifles, and for some time held the rank of Quartermaster. The news of his death will come as a sad shock to his many friends in the City, where he was widely known and much respected. In shooting circles his kindly personality will be severely missed; and to his widow and family much sympathy will be extended in their bereavement. The funeral takes place this afternoon, leaving the residence in Longmarket Street, at 4.30, and proceeding to the Church of England Cemetery.

OBITUARY

MR. C.H. MITCHELL, M.P.C.
From Our Own Correspondent
Durban, November 27.
The death occurred this morning, at the Sanatorium, Durban, of Mr. C.H. MITCHELL, of Fascadale, near Port Shepstone. Mr. MITCHELL was a member of the Provincial Council for Umzimkulu, having succeeded Mr. John KIRKMAN. During the last session of the Council, his health broke down, and he was admitted to Grey's Hospital and treated for an affection of the throat. After a partial recovery, he went back to his farm at Fascadale. From that time he was not in the best of health, and about five weeks ago the old trouble returned, and he entered the Sanatorium at Durban. He seemed to get much better, and some days ago bright hopes were entertained of his recovery, but some complications of the lungs set in, with a fatal termination. The deceased leaves a wife and family. Mrs. MITCHELL was in attendance on her husband at the time of his death.
Mr. MITCHELL came to South Africa as a youth for the benefit of his health, and was associated for a time with Mr. John HARDY of Pietermaritzburg. He took up farming and storekeeping, at what is now known as "Fascadale," and resided there from 15 to 20 years. Mr. MITCHELL was held in high esteem by the farming community of the Union, and for three years was President of the Natal Agricultural Union. In 1913 he was President of the South African Agricultural Union, and at the Conference of that body at Durban in August last year the writer was able to notice how popular Mr. MITCHELL was with his brother farmers of the Union. He was a kindly man, of pleasing personality, and was a fluent and incisive speaker.
The news of his death will be received throughout South Africa with the greatest regret. Mr. S. WOOLLATT, of Mooi River, President of the Natal Agricultural Union, at present on a visit to Durban, was deeply sympathetic when informed of the death of Mr. C.H. MITCHELL. Mr. WOOLLATT had been associated with the deceased gentleman in connection with the affairs of the Natal Agricultural Union, and had found him ready at all times to do anything in his power to further the interests of South African agriculture. A tribute to the excellent qualities of Mr. MITCHELL was also paid by Mr. Duncan M. EADIE, whose position as Secretary to the Natal Agricultural Union brought him into close touch with the deceased. Mr. EADIE had known Mr. MITCHELL for many years, and he emphasised the fact that the farmers of South Africa had lost a true champion and one whose place it would be no easy matter to fill.
The funeral takes place to-morrow afternoon at Port Shepstone.

He was the son of a professor of military engineering at the Military Academy, West Point, and was himself educated at the Naval Academy. He was the recipient of degrees from Oxford, Cambridge, Harvard, Yale, M'Gill and Columbia universities. He received his appointment to the U.S. Navy in 1856, and served through the civil war. His duty subsequently took him to the South Atlantic, Pacific, Asiatic and European stations. In 1886 he was appointed President of the Naval War College. As commander of the "Chicage," with the European squadron in 1893 he formed a large circle of friends in Britain, and in 1899 he represented the States at the Peace Conference at the Hague. His most notable literary work was the "Influence of Sea Power upon History," a volume which was published in 1890, and remains unique. It is most unfortunate that the author has not been permitted the opportunity of adding a final chapter dealing with the existing situation. MAHAN's "Short History of the South African War" was another work which attracted widespread attention, and which showed the author to be possessed of a deeper discernment that the majority of the historians of 1900.

MRS. WM. COMINS

The news of the death of Mrs. Wm. COMINS, of Merrivale, though not unexpected, will come with a sense of keen regret to her many relatives and friends in Natal. The eldest daughter of the late Richard MATTISON, of New Park, near Maritzburg, and of Mrs. MATTISON, now of 226, Pine Street, Maritzburg, she comes of a family well known throughout this Province; and she leaves a husband, three daughters and two sons, with whom great sympathy is felt. In December, 1877, she was married to Mr. Wm. COMINS, then farming in the York district, from whence they moved, in 1886, to Bursea, in the uplands of Weenen County, where they spent the greater part of their married life. A year ago, when they retired to Merrivale, after a strenuous life at Bursea, and it seems hard that they were not permitted to enjoy longer together the fruits of their labours. Though of a retiring disposition, one had but to know Mrs. COMINS to love her as one who has had the privilege of being a near neighbour of her's for many years, the writer can testify to her many sterling qualities of character, and as a true friend and neighbour, one could ask for no better. A sad feature of the case is that the youngest son, Mr. Vernard COMINS, is at present in German South-West Africa, with the Natal Carbineers, and was therefore, unable to be with his mother at the last.
