"AN OLD COLONIST GONE.-The late Mr. Henry Angel who died at Lake Albert, near Wagga, at his residence on the 7th instant, at the age of 91 year, was a colonist for over 60 years, having arrived in the colony in 1819. He first settled in Kiama as a farmer. In 1824 he went with Humo and Hovell's party on the expedition overland to Hobson's Bay. He was one of the first men who crossed the River Murray and was always foremost in any difficult situations or hardships on the journey. Mr. Hume, in his reports of the expedition, frequently mentions the name ot Henry Angel, and speaks highly of his courage and determination. He appears always to have been a man on whom great reliance was placed by the explorers iu any difficulty or hardships.

Mr. Angel afterwards followed the occupation of a farmer and became a squatter on the Murrumbidgee. He eventually settled near Wagga, and became possessed of a considerable landed estate. He was noted in the district for his strict integrity. ln 1832 he married Mary Brooker. There were l6 children of the marriage, eight of whom and the widow and 70 grandchildren survive their father.

OBITUARY MR. E. J. ANGEL

The death occurred at the age of 82 years, at his residence, "Springvale," Lake Albert, last night, after an illness of about a fortnight, of Mr. Edward Jonathan Angel, who was the second youngest son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Henry Angel, of Lake Albert, who were among the earliest pioneers of the Wagga district.

Mr. E. Angel was 10 years of age when his parents settled at Lake Albert. His father was with the Hume and Hovell expedition in New South Wales in the early days, and was the first white man to swim the Murray River near Albury.

The deceased was a keen fancier of Shorthorn cattle, of which he was a noted breeder. He had lived at Lake Albert all his life and was also a very great lover of horses, having trained many splendid animals during his long life at the station. He was one of the founders of the coursing club. The plumpton was situated on his property, and he had a number of good dogs himself which were very successful in coursing matches.

Mr. Angel was rector's warden at the Lake Albert Church of England for the last 25 years, and was held in very high esteem and respect throughout Wagga and district. He was one of the oldest members of the M.U.I.O.O.F. Lodge, and was a keen cricketing enthusiast, having been a splendid player in his younger days. He never missed seeing any of the matches played at Lake Albert up to the time he became ill. He was also a member of the M.P. and A.A. for a great many years.

He is survived by six sons and three daughters, Stanley Edward, Leslie James, Walter Edwin, Harvey Edgar, and Horace Edmund, of Lake Albert, and Harold Bruce Angel, of Sydney, Misses Ivy and Gertie Angel, of Lake Albert, and Mrs. W. Miller, of Mona Vale. One brother survives, Mr. Samuel Angel, of Trail-street, Wagga.

The funeral will move from "Springvale," Lake Albert, at 2.30 o'clock to-morrow (Saturday) afternoon for the family enclosure of the Wagga cemetery.

MR. E. J. ANGEL

The funeral of Mr. Edward Jonathan Angel, of "Springvale," Lake Albert, who died at his residence on Thursday, took place on Saturday afternoon. The cortege, which was a very large one, was a very fine tribute to the character of Mr. Angel and to the esteem in which he was held throughout the Lake Albert and the Wagga district.

The cortege moved from "Springvale" at 3 o'clock, where a short service was conducted before the funeral by the Ven. Archdeacon S. J. West, of Wagga. The interment took place in the family enclosure in the Church of England division of the Wagga Cemetery where Archdeacon West officiated.

Archdeacon West, in his address at the graveside, said that Mr. Angel had had three great characteristics. The first was that he put forth his best efforts in developing the rural and commercial life of the district. That was a work that all men must honor because it was a fundamental duty which God required of every man. The result of Mr. Angel's work would ever remain a tribute to his memory.

Secondly, Mr. Angel was a great "home" man. Home was everything to him and he played his part well. He was a good husband and a good father who enjoyed the affection of every member of his family. It was a great tribute to a man to have every member of his family say "he was a great man in his own home."

Thirdly, Mr. Angel was a great churchman. So great was his devotion to his church that all his family followed his example. St. Peter's, Lake Albert, was where he worshipped and worked most, but his church interests were by no means con- fined to that centre. For a number of years he had been church warden at Lake Albert, which office he had fulfilled with great credit.

Mr. Angel's passing, said Archdeacon West, was a loss, but the fruits of his labors would ever remain "Rest eternal grant him and may light perpetual shine upon him."

The coffin was carried to the grave by Messrs. Stanley, Leslie, Walter, Harvey, Horace, and Harold Angel (sons), and the pall bearers were Messrs. Samuel Angel (brother), Bert Graham, J. Lockett, Albert Angel, S. V. Best, and S. Thompson, who represented the M.U.I.O.O.F. Lodge, Wagga.

The floral tray, laden, with many wreaths, was carried by Messrs. M. Bye, Albert Angel, A. Brooker, and Percy Angel. The chief mourners at the graveside, in addition to those already mentioned, were Misses Ivy and Gertie Angel, of Lake Albert, Mesdames W. Wilson, of Wentworthville, W. Miller, of Mona Vale (daughters), S. Angel (sister-in-law), McClure, A. Angel, Percy Angel, Mr. Robert Hurst and Mr. and Mrs. W. J. Glenn (nephews and nieces), Mervyn, Ron, Fred and Roy Angel, (grandsons), Doris Angel and Mrs. S. Hughes (granddaughters), Mesdames S. Angel, L. Angel and H. Angel (daughters-in law), Mr. George Wild (brother-in-law) , and Messrs. C. Haydon, represent- ing Messrs. Lusher, Young and Stellway, Cussen, of the Bank of New South Wales, R. G. Nesbitt, of Nesbitts Ltd., and R. Purtell, of the Australian Mercantile Land and Finance Co. Ltd.

Among the floral tributes were wreaths from the parents and pupils of the Lake Albert Sunday school, Lake Albert Tennis Club, members of the Lake Albert Cricket Club, and Messrs. Lusher Young and Stellway. A very large number of friends attended from Sydney, Gregadoo, Forset Hill, Gundagai, Nangus, Book Book, Big Spring, Albury road, Lake Albert and Wagga and district.

The funeral arrangement were carried out by Mr. J. C. McDonald, of Wagga.

The cortege moved from "Springvale" at 3 o'clock, where a short service was conducted before the funeral by the Ven. Archdeacon S. J. West, of Wagga. The interment took place in the family enclosure in the Church of England division of the Wagga Cemetery where Archdeacon West officiated.

Archdeacon West, in his address at the graveside, said that Mr. Angel had had three great characteristics. The first was that he put forth his best efforts in developing the rural and commercial life of the district. That was a work that all men must honor because it was a fundamental duty which God required of every man. The result of Mr. Angel's work would ever remain a tribute to his memory.

Secondly, Mr. Angel was a great "home" man. Home was everything to him and he played his part well. He was a good husband and a good father who enjoyed the affection of every member of his family. It was a great tribute to a man to have every member of his family say "he was a great man in his own home."

Thirdly, Mr. Angel was a great churchman. So great was his devotion to his church that all his family followed his example. St. Peter's, Lake Albert, was where he worshipped and worked most, but his church interests were by no means con- fined to that centre. For a number of years he had been church warden at Lake Albert, which office he had fulfilled with great credit.

Mr. Angel's passing, said Archdeacon West, was a loss, but the fruits of his labors would ever remain "Rest eternal grant him and may light perpetual shine upon him."

The coffin was carried to the grave by Messrs. Stanley, Leslie, Walter, Harvey, Horace, and Harold Angel (sons), and the pall bearers were Messrs. Samuel Angel (brother), Bert Graham, J. Lockett, Albert Angel, S. V. Best, and S. Thompson, who represented the M.U.I.O.O.F. Lodge, Wagga.

The floral tray, laden, with many wreaths, was carried by Messrs. M. Bye, Albert Angel, A. Brooker, and Percy Angel. The chief mourners at the graveside, in addition to those already mentioned, were Misses Ivy and Gertie Angel, of Lake Albert, Mesdames W. Wilson, of Wentworthville, W. Miller, of Mona Vale (daughters), S. Angel (sister-in-law), McClure, A. Angel, Percy Angel, Mr. Robert Hurst and Mr. and Mrs. W. J. Glenn (nephews and nieces), Mervyn, Ron, Fred and Roy Angel, (grandsons), Doris Angel and Mrs. S. Hughes (granddaughters), Mesdames S. Angel, L. Angel and H. Angel (daughters-in law), Mr. George Wild (brother-in-law) , and Messrs. C. Haydon, represent- ing Messrs. Lusher, Young and Stellway, Cussen, of the Bank of New South Wales, R. G. Nesbitt, of Nesbitts Ltd., and R. Purtell, of the Australian Mercantile Land and Finance Co. Ltd.

Among the floral tributes were wreaths from the parents and pupils of the Lake Albert Sunday school, Lake Albert Tennis Club, members of the Lake Albert Cricket Club, and Messrs. Lusher Young and Stellway. A very large number of friends attended from Sydney, Gregadoo, Forset Hill, Gundagai, Nangus, Book Book, Big Spring, Albury road, Lake Albert and Wagga and district.

The funeral arrangement were carried out by Mr. J. C. McDonald, of Wagga.
