      Death of Miss Jessie Sly.
      A Gloom was cast over the town on Friday movning
      when it became known that Miss Jessie Madaline
      Sly had breathed her last. The deceased lady was
      a daughter of Mr and Mrs W Sly, of the Black
      Horse Hotel, Richmond, and had been ill for some
      weeks Her death was not unexpected, but it was
      nevertheless a sad affliction to the parents and
      their family to lose one so fair, so young, and
      whose life was so full of promise. The late Miss
      Sly was only 20 years and 1 month old, and the
      cause of death was bronchial pneumonia superven
      ing upon a very severe attack of influenza She
      had been an active worker in the Presbyterian
      Church, and was greatly beloved by her co-workers
      and the children of the Sunday-School The funer-
      al, which was largely attended, took place on Sat-
      urday Iast. The coffin was borne from the resi-
      dence of the deceased's parents to the Church of
      England Cemetery by two relays of carriers, all of
      whom were her uncles. Prior to the cortege form-
      ing, prayer was offered in the house by the Rev Dr
      Cameron. At the graveside the Rev J Howell
      Price conducted the beautiful service, and at his
      special request the Rev Dr Cameron delivered a
      touching address ; he referred to the sweet charac-
      ter and maidenly virtues of their departed sister,
      and spoke of her as first a scholar and then a
      teacher in the Presbyterian Sunday-school. The
      Rev J Howell Price spoke also, and bore testimony
      to the goodness of the deceased during her too
      short life. The floral tributes were very numerous,
      and of lovely design. The coffin was hidden by
      them, and four little children carried many in a
      large basket, The funeral was carried out by Mr
      Arthur Price in his usual good style.
