OBITUARY. MRS. M. H. REDHEAD. Yesterday morning the sad news was received by the Rev. T. J. Red- head (Anglican rector of Thuddungra) of the death of his mother, which took place on Saturday last. Mrs. Red- head was the relict of the late Dr. Ernest W. Redhead, and resided at Malvern (Vic.) She had been ill for some time, and Mr. Redhead had in- tended to proceed to Victoria last week, but clerical duties detained him, and is therefore deeply grieved at not being able to attend his mother's bed- side before she passed away.

Great sympathy is felt for the &nbsp; reverend gentleman in his bereave- ment, not only by the members of his own church, in both the parishes of Thuddungra and Young, to whom he has endea...
