      The late Mr. Kealy, popularly
      known as 'Herb,' was widely known
      over most of New South Wales. He
      was born on his parents' farm at Fos-
      terton 50 years ago and after their
      death he carried on the farm until
      1930, when he left this district to be
      come licensee of the hotel at Garali,
      near Moree, He made a success of
      the venture and purchased the hotel
      at Boomi, on the Queensland border
      Disposing of the Garah business, he
      took over the Great Northern Hotel
      at Byron Bay. Some time ago he pur-
      chased the portion of Auchentorlie
      estate adjoining his farm at Foster-
      ton. He intended building a home
      there and probably retiring from the
      hotel business to take up dairying and
      grazing pursuits.
      Big-hearted, generous and a true
      friend, Herb was loved and appreciat
      ed by all who enjoyed his friendship.
      No public movement, no worthy cause,
      no case of distress escaped his un
      ostentatious aid. Wherever he might
      be located, he was the 'kind neigh
      bour' of the old school, doing a good
      turn, giving a helping hand, and say
      ing nothing about it.
      In the life of his family he took his
      father's place, in every sense of thc
      word. He not only gave advice, but
      encouragement and help. That he will
      be missed goes without saying, and
      missed not only by members of his
      family but by a wide circle of friends
      who live in Sydney, along the coast,
      in the north-western districts of this
      State, and elsewhere,
      Towards the end of last year, Herb
      was married to Miss Doris Kattig and
      to his widow and to all the members
      of the family deepest sympathy is ex
      tended.
