      (From Our Correspondent.)
      April 36.
      Farewell Social.
      General and widespread regret was felt when it was made known that our local postmistress, Miss L. Boge, was
      about to resign her position and leave the district, for she had pleased the public generally and that it was freely expressed that her place would be very hard to fill. In order to testify to the esteem in which Miss Boge is held the residents decided not to let her go away without some tangible memento.

      A committee of ladies organised a social for last Friday night and, as in the case of a recent similar function
      tendered to another of our departing ladies, both, by the way, leaving under similar circumstances, the hall was just
      as crowded. The night proved a most enjoyable one, and was fraught with kindly thoughts and expressions about the guest. Although dancing was the chief form of entertainment some very acceptable musical items added much to the pleasure of the evening. Those who assisted in the musical part were Mesdames Smith and Kirkland (duet), Miss D. Lamb, Miss Beryl Rosser, Mrs. Collie, Mr. P. Allpass, and Mr. Jos.
      Mauch (violin). Some of the more elderly section, or non-dancers, found enjoyment in a game of cards. Immediately prior to the very fine supper, the presentation, which took the form of a beautiful large sized leather suit case
      and a number of notes, was made in a very eulogistic speech by Mr. W. Smith.

      In doing so he told Miss Boge that if ever there was a doubt in her mind as to the way in which her services had
      been appreciated by the business people and the public generally, that doubt should vanish. The large gathering testified more than, all the words that he might say. He himself doubted if ever a public officer could be more courteous and obliging. He wished Miss Boge a bright and prosperous future. Mr. A. Kemp, in supporting the remarks of the previous speaker, referred to the introduction of Miss Boge to the district and the great benefit that her four years in Yangan had been to her health. She had taken an interest in most matters and had been a tennis enthusiast. He regretted that their guest was leaving them, because he felt that she was always a good example to young ladies,
      being of a particularly fine character.

      Mr. John Kelly humorously referred to the slowness of their own boys in letting Miss Boge go away like this. He was
      sorry that they were losing her, but wished her good luck. Mr. C. Nielsen, in expressing his regret at Miss Boge's
      departure, said that the district could ill afford to lose a citizen of her character. She had been a most obliging officer and an influence for good. Mr. C. Madsen commented most favourably upon our postmistress' good nature, and said
      that only good things could be said about her. She had gone out of her way to assist the public in postal or banking matters. Mr. T. Mahony also spoke in a similar strain.

      When Miss Boge was called upon to respond, and rose to do so, she was received with loud applause. She said that she felt very grateful to one and all for the very nice things that had been said, and for the handsome presentation. In
      support of these remarks Mr. A. Neal thanked one and all for the expressions of goodwill and the keen interest shown
      by such a representative gathering. He referred to the feeling which such gatherings bring about in the heart of
      the guest, who can seldom give those feelings in words. He assured them that both Mrs. Boge and Miss Boge felt very deeply such a function as was held that night in their honour. If the public had found friends in them it was because they to had found friends in the public. In adding his own meed of regret at the departure of both Mrs. Boge
      and her daughter, he, at the same time, congratulated Miss Boge on her proposed important step in life and wished her
      a continuance of that happiness which always seemed to be with her. This portion of the proceedings was fought to
      a close by all joining in singing "For They are Jolly Good Fellows," after which the dancing was further proceeded with until well into the morning. The hall had been tastefully decorated for the occasion by Mr. Douglas Smith. Mr. W. R. Maguire made an efficient M.C. whilst very enjoyable music was supplied by the Rettke Bros. Besides the energetic ladies of the committee, assistance was again forthcoming from Mrs. Woodhouse in attending to the refreshments. Miss Boge's future home will be in Kingaroy.

    From Our Correspondent.)
    The very sad news reached here this
    morning (Tuesday) that Mrs. H. Gibson,
    nee Miss Lily Boge, had died suddenly
    the evening before at Kingaroy.
    Mrs. Gibson only resigned her position
    as postmistress at Yangan twelve
    months ago to be married, and it is indeed very sorrowful to think that the
    life of one who had made herself so
    popular by her ever bright and obliging disposition should have been cut so
    short. The large gathering that assembled at the farewell social tendered to her is still fresh in our memories.
    Our deepest sympathy is extended to
    her bereaved husband, and also her
    mother and the other members of the
    family, in their irreparable loss.
