MYRNIONG. (PFROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.) The death of 1'r. Peacock Scott, which took place on Sunday last, in the Melbourne Benevolent Asylum, wheire he was recently removed, takes from the district one of its oldest identities. Mr. Scott, who had reached the advanced age ot 94 years, was: in his younger days, a kind of ship's carpenter, and the fact that he possessed the ability to use the saw and chisel with some degree of skill resulted in him being closely associated with the erection of many rail fences and outbuild ings in the early settlement of the district. It seemed fitting in his later years that he should take up his abode in Myrniong Park, as honorary caretaker, he having many years previously ,fenced the grounds for the old Show Commnittee, and most probably the Secretary's office also, in which he lived, and where there used to be so much bustle and excitement when the annual show was held. Deceased, who was in receipt of the old age pension, has left behind a goodly ...
