On Sunday morning, February 14th, there passed away across the Great Divide the soul of one of the pioneers of Red Range, Mr. Thomas Ballard. Death was due to pneumonia, and occurred, after an ailment of one week. The deceased who had reached the ripe age if 86 years, came to New England from the Hunter River about 27 years ago, and being attracted by the fertility of the Range settled in that portion of the district, where he afterwards successfully followed farming operations. He leaves a widow two married daughters (Mrs. R. Bignell, of the Manning River, and Mrs. James Cornish), and three sons, Allan, David, and Gyrus, The remains were interred in the Presbyterian portion of the local cemetery, the funeral. Arrangements being carried out by Mr. A. W. Lane. The race of a good old man is run, and now as Goldsmith wrote — The breezy call of incense breaching morn, The swallow twittering from the straw built shed, The cocks shrill clarion, or the echoing horn, No more shall rouse him from his lonely bed.
