    • Mr Alfred Smith, one of the pioneers in the fruit growing industry, died at his residence at Montville last Saturday at the age of 58 years (writes our Montville correspondent). The late Mr. Smith arrived in Queensland in 1877 from America (having been born in Worcester, England, in 1856), and together with his two brothers, Henry and Edward, who survive him, commenced fruit growing at Redland Bay. They continued there till 1893 when they selected land at Montville, on the Blackall Range. The deceased was highly respected, and leaves a widow, three grown sons, Fred, Ernest, and Montrue, and two married daughters, Mrs. J. Woof and Mrs. J. Aird. The funeral which left for the Mapleton Cemetery on Sunday was largely attended, and the vicar (Rev. Mr. Baker, from Nambour) officiated at the graveside. The coffin was quite hidden by wreaths and flowers sent by numerous friends.
