There passed away, at his residence, Luddenham, on Sunday morning last, Mr Joseph Outridge—a resident of the district for 21 years, and of the State for 58 years—at the ripe old age of 71 years. Mr Outridge, during his stay in the city, carried on business first as a stonemason, but in the latter part of his time was clerk of works for many of the largest oommercial houses, including Gardiner's, Elliott Dobs[?], and others. On the retirement he came to Luddenham, built a home, and planted out an orchard and flower garden. The orchard did not prove a success during late years, as the dry weather killed most of the trees. His flower garden and bush house, however, were very attractive, his blooms winning many prizes. Mr Oatridge took a very active part in all public matters. He was one of the originators of " the flower show," which eventually beoame the Luddenham Agricultural and Horticultural Society, and he was president of the latter for many years. He was also an alderman of the Mulgoa Council, and was a very old member of the Oddfellows, holding many prominent offices. He leaves, besides his widow, a family of three sons and one daughter. One son is employed in the railway locomotive department at Penrith, and another at Eveleigh ; another son resides at Wyong, and the daughter resides at home. Dr. Elworthy was in attendanoe on deceased, and on Saturday gave no hope of recovery. The funeral on Monday was largely attended.
