    • Death of Mr William Perks

      One of the saddest deaths that have occured at Young for a long time is that of Mr. William Wainwright Perks, who succumbed to pneumonic influenza in the Emergency Hospital last week, aged 48 years. The deceased got the influenza in the ordinary form about three weeks ago and went to bed for a few days. He had a contract on Memagong station, and although he had not been long out of bed drove a man out on Wednesday week. He stayed there for the night, and on his return home felt so ill that he went to bed again. He had evidently caught a relapse as he grew worse, and on Thursday of last week was taken to the Emergency Hospital in a serious condition. He was a son of Mrs. Eliza Perks, of Main Street. He was borne at Boorowa and married at Yass. A widow and five sons and two daughters are left to mourn their loss. The eldest of the family is a son aged 20 and the youngest a daughter aged 3. Five are at home to be cared for. Mr. D. Perks, teacher of Tumbleton School, is a brother, and Mesdames Albert Wales and E.E. Begg (Young) Sisters. Mrs. A. Plumb, another sister, resides at Gunning, and two other brothers, Messrs Henry and Joseph at Millthorpe and Condobolin respectively. The remains were interred in the Methodist portion of the cemetry, Rev. A. E. Putland conducting the ceremony and Messrs. Patterson Bros, the funeral arrangements. - ' Chronicle'
