OBITUARY Mr. Peter David McDowell Smyth, of Salter's Springs, who died recently at Riverton, was one of the oldest residents of the district. Born at Salter's Springs in 1871, the sixth son of the late David and Flora Smyth, he spent practically the whole of his life in the locality. He was educated at Whinham and Wesley (Melbourne) Colleges, and on leaving school returned to his father's farm at Salter's Springs. In 1897 he married Miss Fanny Emily Ewers, who died in 1933. He is survived by four sons —Messrs. R. C. M., A. B. L. S. M., and H. L. M. Smyth, all of Salter's Springs—and four daughters— Mesdames A. J. Shepherd (Wudinna), F. H. .Williams (Streaky Bay), K.
