      Obituary
      Mr. John Adams Mr. John Adams, whose death occurred at Sawtell last week, formerly resided at Uruuga and Gleniffer and was a well-known and highly respected citizen. His popularity was evidenced by the large number from
      Sawtell, Gleniffer and Bellingen who attended his funeral at Bellingen.

      He was born in Dorsetshire (England) 77 years ago, but came to Australia as a mere youth with courage, energy, and determination his only assets. He landed in Victoria over
      hall a century ago, but did not remain long in the southern State, and came on to New South Wales, where he entered the Navigation Department's service. One of his first appointments was on a dredge stationed on the Bellingen River, and he served there for some years, being transferred in turn to Sydney and then in the Richmond River.

      From the Richmond River he again came to the Bellingen, and then relinquished his work with the dredges to settle on the land at Gleniffer, where he purchased a farm from the late Mr. John McFadyen. To this he subsequently added a considerable area and began a very successful career of a farmer and dairyman.

      Prior to taking up the farm property Mr. Adams was married to Miss Elizabeth McFadyen, third daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. John McFadyen, and she and two sons and four
      daughters survive him. Mr. and Mrs. Adams and family resided on the property till five years ago, when
      with advancing years Mr. Adams decided to hand the property to his sons to work, while he and Mrs. Adams went to live in retirement at Sawtell, together with their daughter, Miss Elizabeth Adams.

      Normally the late Mr. Adams enjoyed good health, though on occasionS he suffered with slight indispositions. On Sunday week he appeared to be inu his normal health, but about 4 o'clock on Monday morning Mrs. Adams heard him get out of bed and walk about the house. Later he returned to his room and went to bed. Mrs. Adams rose shortly alter six to make a cup of tea, and as Mr. Adams did not come out as usual she went to his room and made the sad discovery that he had apparently passed away. She hurriedly sought the help of neighbors and a doctor was called, when death was pronounced.

      Referring to the deceased, the "Raliegh Sun" says he commanded the highest respect in every field, of acquaintance. He was always candid in his comment, honest to the last degree, had a clear conception of his
      duties to his family and his fellow man, and fought for all that was right and just. He took a keen interest in the welfare of the primary produce, was one of the members of the directorate of the old Gleniffer butler factory, and rendered generous assistance to all district matters during
      his term of residence at Gleniffer and Sawtell. He was ever a man's man, frank and just, and his word was always his bond.

      In the passing of John Adams the district loses one of
      its most worthy members, and to the bereaved widow, the sons George and Jack, and the daughters, Mrs. Alf.
      King (Florence), Miss Elizabeth, Mrs. Rose (Ivy Iris), and Mrs. Keith Campbell (Eva May), the deepest sympathy is extended.
