      THURSDAY, AUGUST 3RD
      (BEFORE Messrs F P Meares, P.M., and C S
      Guest and W Mitchell, J.sP.
      Mrs Mary Ann South sued Mrs Sophia Sly for
      £5 is 3d, being proportionate cost of dividing fence
      between their respective properties at Richmond
      Bottoms
      Mr E Campbell appeared for plaintiff, and Mr
      R B Walker tor defendant
      Evidence was given on behalf of the plaintiff by
      herself and James Richardson, who erected the
      fence, that notice was given to Mrs Sly to fence in
      accordance with the Dividing Fences Act, and
      that she had only erected 19 rods instead of 27 1/2
      as required by her.
      The defence consisted in the fact that Mrs Sly
      had previously erected 17 rods of fencing on the
      same line, some years ago at her own expense, and
      that that fence was still there, and together with
      the 14 rods lately erected by her, made up her
      half of the dividing line.
      Evidence was given in support of this by Mrs
      Bailey, Mr Henry Sly, and Mr J Shepherd, who
      erected the old fencing.
      The Bench would not take into consideration
      anything regarding the old fence and gave a ver
      dict for plaintiff. [7]

      Obituary.
      One of the oldest and most respected, and
      also one of the best known residents of
      Richmond, in the person of Mrs. Sophia
      Sly, of March street passed away to that
      bourne, from whence no traveller returns
      on Friday morning last, at the age of 75
      years. The deceased was a native of
      Richmond. She had been ailing for a long
      time prior to her death. Many years
      ago she kept the Black Horse Hotel, now
      occupied by her son William, and one
      thing that characterised her long life was
      her liberality and kind heartedness. She
      leaves a number of sons and daughters,
      and a larger number of grand and great-
      grand children. The children who sur-
      vive her are : Messrs. William, Walter,
      Charles, John and Harry Sly, Mrs. Bailey
      (Richmond), James Sly, and Mrs. C Mills
      (Strathfield). The funeral took place on
      Saturday afternoon last. Leaving the
      house at 2 p.m., the coffin was carried by
      a number of friends to St. Peter's Church
      of England Cemetery. The Rev. J.
      Howell Price and Rev. Dr. Cameron
      conducted the funeral service, both clergy
      men making reference to the life of the
      deceased. The coffin which was of pol-
      ished cedar, mounted with silver, and was
      covered with beautiful wreaths. The
      funeral arrangements were carried out by
      Mr. Arthur Price.
