Departed this life on the 25th instant Mr. Arthur BARKER, aged 47 years, after a lingering illness, the consequence of severe afflictions; leaving a widow and seven young children in circumstances of extreme distress to deplore his melancholy loss, which deprives them of the means of subsistence. Donations to enable the family to commence in a small line of business will be thankfully received at the Bank, Commercial Exchange, Mr, GREIG’s and at Mr. REEVES’ Auction Mart. It is hoped that this appeal to a humane and benevolent public will not be addressed in vain, being, as it is, “the call of the Fatherless and the Widow”.
