      OBITUARY LATE MRS. CHARLES FRANCIS TEMPLE death occurred at Clare on Tuesday, August 24th., at the residence of her son-in-law and daughter (Mr. and Mrs. Eric Tilbrook), of Mrs. Mary Temple, widow of the late Mr. Charles Francis Temple, of Angas Street and Royston Park, Adelaide. The deceased lady came to reside with her daughter at Clare about 4 1/2 years ago, following on the death of her husband. Being in failing- health and 73 years of age, her demise was not unexpected, although just before her death (on Sunday last) she suffered from a heart attack and stroke, and remained unconscious to the end. Mrs. Temple was a daughter of the late Mr. Richard Livett Lander, a pastoralist who lived in the early days of the colony at Lake Sunday Station on the Peninsula, and she was born at Moonta 73 years ago. While on a visit to England with her sister (Mrs. R. J. S. Adams), of Park Terrace, Gilberton, in 1887, the deceased lady became engaged to Mr. Charles Francis Temple,' an Australian, who was then the London and also South American manager in Rio de Janiero for the Australian stock exchange and brokerage firm of Messrs. Keats and Temple.He later was a partner in the pastoral station known as "Weeilmoringle", in N.S.W. They were married on 3rd June, 1887, in the Parish Church, of Ben-Hilton, in the County of Surrey, England, by the vicar, the Rev. John Brooker, M.A. There were three children of the marriage, two sons and one daughter. Of these Mrs. Enc H. Tilbrook survives her two brothers Messrs. Roy S., and Richard C. V. Temple, both dying shortly after their 'return from active service in Great War, the former being at the Gallipoli landing and an Anzac, and the latter being injured in the defence of the Suez Canal. Mrs. Temple's surviving brothers are Messrs. H. and R. L. Lander, of Eden Valley. Mrs.' Temple's mother (the late Mrs R. L. (Mary) Lander, who died 9 years ago, at the age of 87, was the first white woman born upon the River Angas at Strathalbyn and at the age of 17 years (then being Miss Mary Dawson) declared St. Andrew's bridge at Strathalbyn open. The southern Argus of Strathalbyn in its edition of the 30th November, 1858, contains among others the following interesting and historical details conceding the opening ceremony of that bridge.'The procession assembled on St. Andrew's Day, and proceeded to the bridge in the following order:-Brunswick Band of Music, Miss Mary Dawson (the first European lady to be born upon the Angas), supported by Mr. Thompson, secretary of the Central Board of Health, Messers. Dawson and Rankine, Trustees of the township, Mr. Boothby. Superintendent Surveyor of the South Eastern District, the committee, visitors, ladies and gentlemen of the town and neighbor -hood, horsemen, carriages, a load of grain, a load of flour, two loads of copper ore a load of wool, Mr. Coleman, Master of Ceremonies. Horsemen numbered 57, and pedestrians 200. 'Mr. Dawson, one of the Trusttees of the Strathalbyn township, and one of the first settlers on the Angas, wore the jewelled star of the Sacred order of the Lion and Sun, and a large golden medal presented to him by the Shah of Persia, as an artilleryman in a British Regiment in the war between Persia and Russia. On reaching the centre of the bridge Mr.Thompson placed a gaily decked bottle of Burgundy, which swung from a blue ribbon,in the hands of 17-year old Miss Mary Dawson, the veteran's daughter, who performed the ceremony of christening by dashing the led wine over the structure, and saying ?''I name this bridge, with the concurrence- of the Central Board of Health, and on behalf of the people of Strathalbyn, and of the Trustees of the township St. Andrew's Bridge.' The late Mr. C. F. Temple was the first person to be baptised in the Parish of St. Paul's, Adelaide,on January 8, 1860, he being No. 1 upon the baptismal register. The funeral of Mrs. Temple took place on Wednesday afternoon at the North Road Cemetery, North Adelaide, where she was interred with her husband and two sons. The Clare firm of Messrs. McDonald & Edwards, carried out tho funeral arrangements, the officiating clergy man being the Rector of St. Barnabas Church. Clare,(the Rev. A. L. Bulbeck), who at the private service held at the residence, made fitting reference to the sacrifice the mothers of this country had made in giving their sons to the service of their country in the Great War.
