    • TRAGIC END

      Mr. Herb. Loiterton, of Stockinbingal

      The above well-known and esteemed farmer and grazier, of 'Kyra,' two miles out from Stockinbingal, was found dead, at 6 o'clock on Tuesday morning, down at the creek near the homestead, with a No. 303 rifle alongside the body. The top of the head was shattered.

      The ambulancc was called, and con veyed the body to the morgue at the Cootamundra District Hospital. It is believed that the shooting occurred about two hours previously. Mr. Loiterton, who is reported as being in very comfortable circumstances, was suffering from nerves, and imagining that everything was going into reverse. For a while he was in Cootamundra, staying with his aged mother, in Sutton street, widow of the late John Loiterton, of 'Mount Hope,' Stockinbingal. He returned home for Christmastide, and began worrying because the wheat had not turned out quite so well as usual.

      It was planned that he and Mrs. Loiterton would go away on a car holiday, leaving this week, hoping that it would give the needed recuperation; but, sadly for all, came the tragic climax.

      There are three daughters and a son. The latter, the youngest, is 12. In order of age they are Una, Elva, Alma, and Wallace. Two of the daughters were ill when the tragedy occurred, and Mrs. Loiterton, sen., was very ill.

      Deceased was 53; and brothers and sisters are Allan Loiterton, Temora; Walter, Pucawan; Lou, Temora; Har rold, Cootamundra; Ellen (Mrs. Frank Corby), Stockinbingal; Eileen (Mrs. H. Pengilly), Goolagong; Elsie (Mrs. Albie Ball), of Ashfleld, late of Stockin bingal; Milicent (Mrs. Don Dickson), Cootamundra; and Doris (Mrs. San derson), Katoomba.

      A native of the district, and a link with its earliest pioneers, whose descendants are numerous about here, deceased married Miss Harris, of Cul linga, whose sisters and brothers are Lou (Mrs. R. Penfold), Quandialla; Ada (Mrs. H. J. Pollard), Cootamun dra; Linda (Mrs; H. J. McGregor), Dulwich Hill; and Jack and Walter, of Wagga; George, Wallendbeen; and Arthur, Queensland.

      The funeral left the Anglican Church, Stockinbingal, after a short service, at 11 on Wednesday morning, for the Stockinbingal cemetery.

      In the absence of the Rev. Canon J. Done, his asistant, Mr. Thomas, officiated, and there was a large and representative gathering.

      An inquest is to be conducted at the Cootamundra Court House next Tuesday.
