      OBITUARY
      MR. EDMUND KEOGH
      The death of Mr. Edmund Francis
      Keogh took place recently at his
      home, Alt-street, Ashfield, at the age
      of 87 years.
      -For about 15 years Mr. Keogh had
      lived in retirement in Sydney. Prior
      to that, since 1893, he was resident
      at, Dockyard, where he carried on a
      blacksmithing business. He enjoyed
      excellent health until about 10 days
      before his death when he was seized
      with a paralytic seizure, whilst at din-
      ner. The late Mr. Keogh was a man
      of many fine characteristics. His
      strong personality and his kindness
      of heart made him many friends,
      He was a tradesman of the first
      order, and his work for the farmers
      was the admiration of many. During
      his residence of 30 years at Miller's
      Forest he took an active interest in
      all matters appertaining to the ad-
      vancement of the district. He was an
      ardent member of the Progress As-
      sociation, and the old Miller's Forest
      Railway League. He was patron of
      the Cricket Club until he resigned to
      reside in Sydney, and held office as
      vice-president of the Football Club on
      numerous occasions.

      ious sporting bodies tendered him and
      Mrs. Keogh a wonderful farewell.

      Hill, Vacy, and in his early years he
      was attracted by gold prospecting in
      the Stewart's Brook district. He en-
      joyed telling stirring tales and ad-
      ventures of the early days of the
      settlement of the 'Brook. He belong-
      ed to the first and only political
      league that ever functioned in Mil-
      ler's Forest, and was a life-long
      friend and follower of Mr. Matthew
      Charlton, .ex-M.H.R.
