    • OBITUARY

      MR. DUNSTAN PERKS

      After many weeks of agonising ill ness caused by Bright's disease, death came as a relief to Dunstan Perks, of Yass Street Young, last week. Model husband and father, and guide, counsellor and friend to many hundreds of persons who received their early and youthful training at

      his day school or evening continuation classes, his was a noble and beautiful character. His death in the prime of life is generally deplored. Scattered throughout the State are hundreds of men who owe much of their progress in life to this man's teaching and kindly influence. Wherever he went in late years he met old pupils who always embarrassed him by express ing gratitude for what he had done for them. During his many years teaching he trained and found posi tions for 450 pupils, of ages ranging from 14 to 24 years.. It was impos sible to know him and not to be up lifted and influenced by his sweetness of nature, his philosophical outlook and his deep spirituality. With these gifts he proved a great teacher. A native of Rye Park, the late Mr, Perks, after joining the Education. Department, taught at the old Gari baldi School Tumbleton and Boara. He has lived in this district for 22 years. He was married at Grenfell to a daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Wigg. Having also been a teacher,

      Mrs. Perks, since her husband's health broke down two and a half years ago, helped to teach school at Boara, and conducted some of the continuation classes. There are four children, all girls, the eldest being seventeen (now studying for her Leaving Certificate) and the youngest eight years. Messrs. Harry and Josiah Perks, of the Orange district, are brothers of the deceased, and Mrs. Plumb (Gau rcain), Mrs. Begg and Mrs. Albert Wales (Young) are sisters. For some time the deceased and his wife knew that he was doomed to an early and painful death, but that knowledge did not disturb the seren ity of his nature. His last illness was marked by patience and resignation which were an inspiration to all who watched by his bedside. He went to Sydney some time ago to visit a specialist. Two weeks ago he was brought back by car, and it was doubt ful then if he would reach home alive. ? Young 'Witness.'
