      The funeral of Mrs A. Macpherson, the young wife of the popular manager of the Pareora station, took place yesterday. The deceased had been married less than 12 months, and was a daughter of Mrs BROWN, formerly of St Andrew's and now the Grosvenor Hotel, Timaru. General sympathy is expressed for Mr Macpherson, whose name for kindness is a household word in South Canterbury.

      The funeral of the late Mrs Macpherson took place yesterday afternoon, and was attended by a very large number of people. Among the chief mourners were Mr Alex. Macpherson (late husband of the deceased young lady), Messrs Brown, Gray, and John Macpherson, and we noticed amongst the other mourners members from all parts of the country districts in South Canterbury and North Otago. The service at the mortuary chapel and the grave was conducted by the Rev. L. C. Brady, and was listened to with the greatest attention. The bereaved relatives are most deeply sympathised with by a large circle of friends and acquaintances.
