It was not surprising that there was a large attendance at the funeral of Mr. Herbert Richard (Dick) Hanson yesterday afternoon as Mr. Hanson was a native of Wagga and had identified itimBPif closely with business, sporting, and other activities at Wagga and district all his life.

He was well respected by all sections of the community, and he was noted for his friendliness and generosity, and his readiness to assist those in need. During his long Illness he was noted for his cheerfulness and hope.

The large cortege, numbering about 50 motor cars, therefore, bore testimony to the popularity with which Mr. Hanson was regarded among all sections of the community.

A short service was held at St John's Church of England about 3.45 o'clock yesterday afternoon, which was largely attended, and which was conducted by the Ven. Archdeacon West.

The archdeacon said that he was sure that all present would agree that, this was the time and place to offer words of good cheer and hope.

Certainly it was a time also to say the tenderest words of sympathy to the wife, mother, and family, as well as friends, but those words needed something substantial upon which they could build their hopes.

Archdeacon West went on to say that there were many analogies in this world which indicated that there was a life in the world to come, notably the fact that the human body was continuously changing every seven years, and no matter what our age, the mind or the soul could reflect and remember back more than 80 years, which indicated that the soul would survive the body.

There were those, said the archdeacon, who refused to believe in a future life because they had not seen it demonstrated, yet that method of reasoning would not apply to a considerable number of facts which might not be demonstrated by the visible or palpable senses, but which reason had established beyond doubt.

The doc trine of Immortality was one of these, which had been accepted by human reason since the first days of man. The archdeacon submitted these things with a message of comfort to those in sorrow. Archdeacon West referred to his happy associations with Dick Hanson.

He had pleasant remembrances of him and of the happiness and gladness which had entered his life at the thought of the Divine, and how he had expressed the greatest satisfaction at the spiritual ministries given to him.

The cortege left the church about four o'clock for the Church of England division of the Wagga cemetery, where interment took place. Archdeacon West also conducted the service at the graveside, where again there was a large attendance of mourners.

The carriers at the church and graveside were Messrs. Frederick, George and Ross Hanson (sons), Robert Hanson and Trevor Saker (nephews) and Samuel Angel (brother-in-law).

The pall-bearers were Messrs. W. Moyes (brother-in-law), W. Cox. Ashley Angel. George Baumer, Harvey Angel, Ken Kenneally, Spencer Angel and Frank Wallace.
