    FRASER ISLAND LEMONS
    (To the Editor.)
    Sir.-I think it would not be just to let the leter in "Colonist" pass without a reply, as it is very misleading. The fact of the matter is, the lemon tree spoken of was twelve inches high, when I landed there five years ago, and had been there a few years then. It looked very miserable. I have taken a deal of care of it, and also washed it several times for the blight. Fruit trees will not do well there when left alone, as we have proved it by one orange two mango trees. They are still there, but that's about all. The mango we planted four years ago, the orange was there before I arrived. The orange trees supposed to be growing wild, are looked after, and pruned every year, by a timber-getter living close by.-I am, etc.

    OBITUARY
    MR. PETER H. BUNDESEN:
    As befitted an honoured citizen, who had given long and valuable service to the community, general regret was expressed in Gympie on Monday at the passing away of Mr. P. H. Bundesen, resident of Beaconsfield-street, Gympie. After about seven weeks' illness in the Gympie General Hospital, during which he underwent two operationns, he succumbed to heart failure after the second of these, at about 11.30 o'clock on Sunday night, at the age of 68 years.
    Deceased was born at Ross (N.Z.) in 1876. He came to Australia with his parents when a boy and spent his early years with them on a farm at Netherby (Tiaro District). He became apprenticed to the coopering and carpentering trade in Maryborough, and at the age of 21, he went to New Guinea, prospecting for gold. Returning after after about 18 months, he engaged in mining in Gympie. A few years later he married Miss Kate Sundstrup of Gympie, and then took up farming on his own account at Netherby. On giving up the farm because of the big drought of 1907, the late Mr. Bundesen went to Fraser Island as timber getter, and about 1912 returned to Maryborough, to work as a carpenter and contractor. In May 1937, he went back to Gympie, where his wife passed away. During his residence in Gympie he carried on business as building contractor.
    In 1921 he married Mrs. M. Burchard, who survives him. For approximately 20 years Mr. Bundesen was Prisedent of the Gympie branch of the A.L.P., which position he still held at the time of his death, and was a steadfast and outspoken upholder of the Labour movement. He is survived by his widow and three sons. Messrs. Leslie (Brisbane), Alfred (Gympie), and Bertel (Mackay), and Lawrence Burchard (step-son).
