The death occurred on Saturday morning of Mrs. John Smith, who had resided at Cooney's creek, near Jugiong, for a great many years. She was aged 77 years. Some weeks ago the deceased caught a cold, and this developed into bronchitis, and as the sufferer also ailed for some time from a weak heart, Dr. Anderson, of Cootamundra, who attended her, held out from the first but little hope of her recovery. Her remains were yesterday interred in the Anglican cemetery at Jugiong, the service being conducted by the Rev. Gordon Hirst. The deceased, who was a sister of Mrs. R. Whiticker, of Gillingro, had been for many years a widow, and excited tbe admiration of the people of Jugiong by the devoted manner in which she discharged the duty of rearing her large family. By her own hands she labored long hours in all weathers for the wherewithal to supply the needs of her children, "and," a Jugiong resident informed us some days ago, " if ever there was a heroine of the Australian bush that person was old Mrs. Smith." She was a thorough Christian, and might be seen even in the warmest day of December trudging the three miles to Jugiong in order to discharge her religious duties. That she was a fine old woman is evident from the kindly words spoken of her by the people amongst whom she lived for many years.
