    • OBITUARY.
      Mrs. Christina BUCHANAN.
      The death occurred on Saturday night of Mrs. Christina Buchanan, a very old and respected resident of the Mount Gambier district. She was the relict of the late Mr. Duncan Buchanan, whom she married in 1857. She has been in failing health for some time, and her death was not altogether unexpected. She was a daughter of the late Mr. Peter McArthur, a pioneer farmer of this district. She came to Australia and landed in Portland with her parents in 1852, then at the age of 13 years. The place of her birth was the Island of Mull, Argylshire, Scotland. She was 84 years of age at the time of her death, and was thus a colonist of 71 years. Mrs. Buchanan a few years ago built a fine house on the Bay-road, and then left the farm in the care of her sons. She was a valued member of St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church, and was well respected by all who knew her. A family of four sons and five daughters survive: Messrs. John, Peter, Archibald, and Walter Buchanan, and Mesdames H. H. Barrett, H. Gaillard, R. H. McFarlane, R. H. Charlick, and Miss M. Buchanan.
      The funeral took place yesterday, when the Rev. J. H. Hull officiated at the graveside. Mr. A. J. McCallum had charge of the arrangements.
