The deceased lady, who was a direct descendent of one of the old Irish families, was born in St Patrick street, Cork, in 1820, and came to this country in 1849 in the ship Duke of Bronte with her mother and sister, Captain Bartlett being in command.

Shortly after their arrival they opened a school at Market Square, Wollongong, and there are still a number of residents on the South Coast who received their early tuition there.

On August 17, 1854, she married Edward Harrigan, of Fairy Meadow, in the old Church of England opposite the Wollongong Bowling Green, Rev. Mr. Mears officiating.

Four children were born to them, and a son and daughter still survive. The deceased lady was highly educated, and was noted for her gentle disposition and wonderful memory.

OBITUARY

The death occurred at Wollongong Hospital, on Sunday of Mr. Stanley Ian Caldwell, aged 36, who had been an inmate of the institution for several months. He was a son of the late Mr. Cunningham Caldwell, who passed away last October at the age of 87 years; and was one of a family of eleven children.

The late Mr. Caldwell met with an accident at the Corrimal mine about four years ago when he sustained an injury to his leg. He has been unable to work ever since.

He was of a very cheery disposition, even in the days of his illness, and his happy disposition won for him many friends on the Corrimal Bowling Green and in the town of Corrimal.

He is survived by a widow and a son (Stan) aged 13 years.

MINER'S DEATH

Injured four years ago, Stanley Ian Caldwell (36), of James road, Corrimal, died in Wollongong Hospital on Jan, 4th, 1942. On Monday, the Deputy Coroner, Mr. S. R. Musgrave, held an inquest at the Soldiers' Club, Corrimal. He returned a finding that death was due to the injuries accidentally re- ceived on Jan 6th, 1938.

Dr. A. L. Caselberg said Caldwell had consulted him early in 1938 regarding an injury sustained when he fell and struck his leg and thigh on a rail in the colliery. The injuries appeared unimportant and were attributable to bruising at that stage.

As deceased did not recover completely, witness discussed the case with Dr. Holland, and it was decided to put him in plaster of paris. This was on for about six weeks. Witness was not sure whether Caldwell went back to work at this stage or not, but as the pain became more severe x-rays were taken.

These showed a small growth on the pubic bone. Caldwell was sent to Sydney and given deep x-ray and other treatment. However, repeated x-rays showed a steady advancement of the growth.

After about two years his general condition began to fail as a direct result of the huge size of the growth and he developed Cachexia and died.

to Mr. Brewster witness said death was due to the growth caused by the injury. Questioned by Mr. Helmore, witness stated when he first saw Caldwell there was no indication of the likelihood of this growth occurring.

It was very rare for a carcinoma to to occur like that, especially in a man of Caldwell's age. In an ordinary case had the carcinoma not developed recovery would only take from four to six weeks. The growth form- ed on the right pubic bone on the inner side leading from the hip joint.

Sergt Murphy, of Corrimal, said on January 6th, 1938 Caldwell was packing a skip in the mine and While putting a packer on top, he slipped and fell, injuring his back and thigh.

Henry R. Campbell, manager of the Colliery, said from the colliery records it appeared there were no witnesses to the accident and Caldwell told the deputy he slipped on a rolling stone. Caldwell had been paid compensation.

Mr. F. Lowden appeared for the Miners' Federation; Mr. Brewster, for the Mines' Department; Mr. B. Helmore for the Corrimal Colliery; while Sergt. Murphy appeared to assist the Coroner.
