AN OLD COLONIST.
DEATH OF MRS. T. FRASER.
Mrs. T. Fraser died at the residence of her daughter, Mrs. J. A. Buchanan—Erneton, Wickham-terrace—early on Wednesday morning. By her death Queensland has lost one of its oldest colonists. Mrs. Fraser came out with her husband in 1842, accompanying the party formed by two of the sons of Sir Colin Mackenzie, of Kilcoy, Rossshire. Those young gentlemen—urged thereto by the generosity of their well-known sire—determined to woo fortune by taking up a sheep run in Australia. Mrs. Fraser's father had lived for eighty-two years on the Mackenzie Estate in Ross, and it was fitting that she, with her husband, should accompany two promising scions of the house into an unknown land. But the first year at Kilcoy, Queensland—it was not Queensland then—proved disastrous. The scab warred with the young Mackenzies' sheep, and proved the victor. Within a year, Sir Colin's sons went home, with temporarily emptied pockets. Mr. and Mrs. Fraser remained, going over to the Archers, on their neighbouring station of Durundur. Here they remained five years. Then, removing to Brisbane, Mr. Fraser found employment in the Customs, and after fourteen prosperous years retired on a competency. That practically closes the uneventful history.
Mr. Fraser died in 1883, having paid one visit to Scotland prior to his demise. Mrs. Fraser did not accompany him. From the time of her arrival in 1842 right up to the moment of her death on Wednesday she never left the colony. On Jubilee night she became unwell, but she remained conscious up to the last. The cause of death seems to have been dengue fever and old age. For twenty years she had not consulted a doctor. She had suffered slightly from asthma within the past year or two, and that was all. Always a quiet, home-loving woman, she went little into society ; but her heart was large, and her charities generous. She leaves six children, twenty-six grandchildren, and numerous great-grandchildren. Her remains were buried at Toowong, beside those of her husband, on Thursday.

A very pretty wedding was celebrated in St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church on Monday afternoon by the Rev. J. A. Sinclair, the contracting parties being Miss C. C. Ross and Mr. J. G. Fulton. The Church was beautifully decorated for the occasion. As the bride entered upon the arm of her brother, Mr. Herbert Ross, the choir and congregation sang, the marriage hymn, Mrs. R. Craig presiding at she organ.
Miss Doris Ross (sister) and little Miss J. Wilesmith (neice) acted as bridesmaids, with Mr. Adam Barr as best man. The service over, and certificates and register duly signed, the young couple left the church amongst showers, of confetti and shouts of good wishes, accompanied by the Strains of the Wedding March. The bride's dress was of duchess satin and French georgette, panel of woven fringe, relieved, with silver tissue. The usual bridal veil was worn, and in her hand the bride carried a large bouquet of beautiful Eucharist lilies. The bridesmaids' dresses were of crepe-de-chine and satin-face silk, hand-embroidered, with hats to match.
The bridegroom's present to the bride was a handsome pendant, while the bride's to the bridegroom, a set of beautiful gold links and studs. The bridegroom presented the bridesmaids with gold bangles.
A goodly number of guests sat down to breakfast at the home of the bride's parents, Mulgrave Road, with the Rev. Sinclair as M.C., while, in the evening, St. Andrew's Choir and Club were entertained by them.
The newly-married couple left, for the South by the Kanowna the same evening on an extended honeymoon trip, the bride's travelling dress being of nigger brown.
There was a large number of presents, many of which were valuable and serviceable.
