Sincere regret is felt throughout the Millthorpe district in a second bereave- ment in the Smith family on Tuesday night last, with, the passing of Miss Alice Smith, at the age of 71 years. No doubt the shock of the death of her sister the previous day contributed to the demise of the late Miss Smith, as her health had been indifferent for some time past. Deceased is survived by two single sis-ters, living on the property, Mrs. W. Marriott, of Orange, and a brother, Mr. Ern. Smith, of Millthorpe.
