    • A VERY OLD COLONIST.
      An old colonist has just passed away from our midst (writes a correspondent) in the person of Mrs. Hannah Smith, at Montville, Blackall Range. Mrs. Smith was born in Worcestershire, England, in May, 1816. In 1869 she lost her husband, who was then 63 years of age, and was left with a family of 16, four of whom were stepchildren. Since then her son Edward has devoted his life to the care of his mother and his younger brothers and sisters, and his self sacrificing spirit has been a blessing to the whole family. After spending a few years in America, they started for Queensland, leaving some of the elder members behind. They arrived in Brisbane, in March, 1879, and settled at Redland Bay, where their sterling metal as useful colonists proved itself. A few years ago they removed to the Blackall Ranges, infusing new life and energy to the district. The youngest son, Henry, has made a name for himself as a nurseryman; he also keeps a store and the post office at Montville. Mrs. Smith impressed the writer, who has known her for a number of years, as a woman of remarkable energy and individuality of character, the sort of stem whose offshoots are invaluable to a country. Up to almost the day of her death she was up and doing, summer and winter, when most people are turning over for a morning snooze; the sun very rarely ever caught her abed. Their sojourn in the States doubtless helped to develop the spirit of enterprise and energy which has made the family a valuable asset to Queensland. Mrs. Smith passed away peacefully on the 17th instant at the ripe old age of 85 years and 11 months, without pain, simply falling asleep. The body was taken along the range to the Mapleton Cemetery, and a large gathering was present. Although it rained heavily, both sides of the road were lined with the school children, who presented a beautiful wreath to be added to those which covered the coffin as the procession passed through. The old lady has left behind her children to the third generation to inherit the sterling qualites developed in the character of their great-grandmother.
