    • One of this district's oldest and most esteemed settlers, Mr Charles Loiterton, aged 88, passed away peacefully shortly after 9 o'clock this morning.
      For the past twenty years he had taken things easily, after hard and successful toil on the land, and latterly was living with his son, James (also retired), in Queen street. A week ago deceased suffered a stroke and thereafter, at his advanced age, little hope of his recovery was entertained.
      Deceased's wife died in Cootamundra seven years ago, at the age of 72. Her maiden name was Ellen Sheather, sister of Messrs. Ike and Steve Sheather of Cootamundra. They married in Camden 69 years ago, and came to Cootamundra in the year 1871 - 59 years ago. Deceased and his only brother, John, selected property known as "Lincolndale" and "Rosemont" adjoining each other, at West Jindalee. Will Loiterton, one of the sons, now resides at "Lincolndale".
      The family comprise: John (deceased), Charles (deceased), James, William, Reginald (deceased), Alice (Mrs Jas. Manning, Stockinbingal), Anne (Mrs A Armstrong, Cootamundra), Louisa (Mrs R Mutch, Cootamundra), Sarah (Mrs C Lines, Laura), and Rose (Mrs A Cranfield, Cootamundra).
      Deceased's only brother, John, survives him, living in Hurley street, and is 88 years of age. He has two sisters surviving him, Mrs New of Goulburn, aged 85, and Mrs Clayton of Auburn, aged 80 years. A family of long livers, indeed! Another sister, Mrs Campbell (eldest) passed away 20 years ago, aged 69 years.
      Grand children number 62, and gret-grandchildren, 87.
      The funeral leaves Mr James Loiterton's residence at 2pm tomorrow, for the Methodist cemetery.
      The subject of our notice was born in Lincolnshire (Eng.), and came to Australia with his parents at the age of 12. The parents settled in Camden.
      Present day active workers for the Show Association will be interested to learn that the "grand old man" of our district joined the association at its inception, and was a committee man for many years, and remained a member all his life.

    • LATE MR. CHAS LOITERTON

      One of the largest funerals in Cootamundra was that of yesterday, when the remains of the late Mr. C. Loiterton, aged 88, were laid to rest in the Methodist portion of the Cootamundra cemetery.

      Rev. W. L. I. Arnold (Presbyterian) who conducted the funeral service (Rev. J. H. Sorrell was away at the Methodist conference), made kindly references to the deceased as one who had a fine Christian character; and judging by the very large gathering at the funeral, he was held in the highest esteem.

      The clergyman went on to speak to the text, "Let not your heart be troubled." As the disciples experi- enced a sorrowful time when, for the last time, they met the Master, so this parting was a sad experience for the many relatives of the late Mr. Loiterton. His hospitality to many had been appreciated, and this was greatly reciprocated by deceased, and especially in the days of his sickness. His death was the glorious sunset of a noble life. It had been a privilege to visit him during the past week and learn of his mind with regard to spiritual realities. Now he was

      Safe in the arms of Jesus;
      Safe on His gentle breast;
      There, by His love o'ershadower,
      Sweetly his soul doth rest.
