DEATH OF MR. JACK PARR WELL KNOWN CARRATHOOL RESIDENT

Surprise and regret was expressed on Saturday evening, when it became known that Mr. John Thomas Parr, a well-known man in the Riverina, and an old resident of the Carrathool district had died suddenly as the result of poisoning.

According to the police report Mr. Parr had latterly suffered from ill-health, and had gone to Wagga to obtain medical advice. Some time after doing so he again complained of not feeling well and is stated to have threatened to take cyanide. On Saturday evening it is reported that he was seen to put some white substance into a cup and drink it, throwing the balance in the fire-place.

He collapsed, and died almost immediately. The police subsequently recovered the substance from the fire-place, and brought it to Hay where an analysis showed it to be cyanide. The body of deceased was brought to Hay on Sunday for a post mortem, examination, after which it was taken back to Carrathool for interment.

An inquiry into the circumstances of death will be held today (Friday). Mr. Parr who was 51 years of age, spent his boyhood days in Hay and Oxley, at which places his father was a hotel keeper. He chiefly followed the calling of a drover, and was highly esteemed by all with whom he came in contact. He is survived by his wife and a large family. —'Riverine Grazier.'

Obituary

MRS. ROSE ANN LEDWIDGE

The death occurred in the Hay Hospital on Monday of last week, of Mrs. Rose Ann Ledwidge, at the age of 78 years.

The deceased had been in indifferent health for some years and had several times been a patient in hospital, being admitted for the last time only two weeks prior to her death.

The deceased lady was very well known and highly respected in the Carrathool district having lived there from the age of nine years.

She was born at the Billabong Creek, Jerilderie, and went to Howlong Station with her father. Up to the time of her last illness, Mrs. Ledwidge was always ready to relate tales of the early days of the district and one was always assured of an interesting conversation with her when she was in reminiscent mood and re-lived the days of her youth.

While in her early twenties she married Mr. Michael Ledwidge, a well-known teamster of the Carrathool district, who pre-deceased her by nine years.

Of her eight children six survive her. They are: Leo (Sydney), Margaret (Mrs. Parr, Hay), Michael John (Darlington Point), Alfred Thomas (Jerilderie), Albert George (Sydney), and Frank Bartlett, who is at present in camp with the A.I.F. at Ingleburn.

One son was killed at Gallipoli in the last war, and one was accidentally drowned in the Murrumbidgee many years ago She is also survived by a large number of grandchildren and some great grandchildren. Four of her sons served with the A.I.F.

The funeral was held on the day following her death, the interment being in the Roman Catholic portion of the Hay cemetery. The Rev. Fr. McGrath performed the ceremony, which was attended by a large circle of her friends and relatives. The large attendance and the number of floral tributes spoke eloquently of the popular esteem in which this pioneer of the district was held.

Obituary

SAPPER GORDON C. PARR

Very sincere regret was expressed in Hay on Wednesday of last week when it became known that Sapper Gordon C. ('Snowy') Parr, of the Royal Australian Engineers A.I F.. had been killed in action in New Guinea.

Sapper Parr was. the fourth son of the late John Parr of Carrathool and Mrs. Parr of Hay. He was almost 28 years of age and was single. Born at Hay, he had spent most of his life in the Carrathool district, being a member of one of the best known families in that district.

He was employed by the W.C. and I.C. at Finley when he enlisted in that town in 1940. Sailing to the Middle East he saw a good deal of action in that theatre of war being in Palestine, Syria and Egypt as well as being one of the renowned 'rats of Tobruk.'

He was in the big push in which the Germans were started off on their last rush out of North Africa and returned home with the Ninth Division. He had been in New Guinea a couple of months. His mates spoke of him as being an expert at 'de-lou'-ing' minefields.

Deceased is survived by five brothers, two of whom are in the A.I.F., and six sisters. He was a nephew of Mr. Tom. Ledwidge, of Jerilderie.
