DEATH OF MR. R. A. COWTON.
Mr. R. A. COWTON, editor and part proprietor of our local contemporary the Warwick Examiner and Times, died at his residence, Albion-street, shortly before 7 o'clock on Saturday morning. He had been ailing for about three months, but few outside the circle of his family and more intimate friends thought the end was so near. Comparatively young, and up till quite recently full of life and energy, Mr. Cowton's many friends in town and country looked with confidence to his ultimate restoration to health. He returned from a trip to the seaside about a fortnight ago, stronger than ho had been for many weeks, and the fact that he was able to pay a short visit to his office encouraged the hope that he was fairly on the way to complete recovery. But fresh complications ensued, and, notwithstanding the unremitting attention of the best medical advice obtainable, and the anxious care of relatives and friends, the sufferer passed quietly away on Saturday morning, and Warwick was called upon to mourn the loss of one of her best known and estimable citizens. How general was the regret evoked by the news of Mr. Cowton's death was evinced by the shuttered windows in every street, by the flags flying at half-mast, and by the expressions of sorrow heard on every hand. We extend our heart-felt sympathy to the widow and family in their bereavement, and add an expression of our deepest sorrow at the loss of one with whom we have worked amicably for more than twenty years in the field of journalism.
Mr. Cowton was born in Yorkshire, England, in the year 1834. He came to Queensland about twenty-seven years ago, and after pursuing his profession for some time in Brisbane, came to Warwick in 1867 and started business in partnership with Mr. Samuel Irwin, with whom he remained associated as proprietor of the Examiner up to the time of his death, the immediate cause of which was an affection of the kidneys. He was a man of kindly disposition, who won the respect and esteem of those with whom he came in contact, and his pen was ever employed in promoting the welfare of the community with which he was identified. In him Warwick has lost one of her truest friends; we have lost one who was an honorable opponent, a generous rival, and a sympathetic co-worker in the journalistic world, whose memory we shall long revere.
The funeral took place on Sunday afternoon, and the very large attendance there-at, proving as it did the universal respect in which the deceased was held, must have supplied some solace to the sorrowing relatives. The cortege was nearly half a mile in length-one of the longest funeral processions witnessed in Warwick for many years. Mr. Cowton had long occupied a high position in the Masonic fraternity, and his remains were interred with full Masonic honors, members coming from Allora and most of the district centres to pay the last tribute of respect to their departed brother. The burial service of the Church of England having been read by the Rev. W. Phillips, M.A., the Masons assembled round the grave, into which they dropped sprigs of acacia, and a lambskin was deposited on the coffin ; a requiem was then chanted, prayer offered, and the proceedings terminated. Touching reference to Mr. Cowton's death was made at the service in St. Mark's on Sunday, and the " Dead March" was rendered as an organ solo during the offertory.

OBITUARY. - A lad named Stephen Thompson, about 14 years of age, stepson of Mr. T. B. Yuill, of Palmerin-street, met with a fatal accident at Farm Creek on Sunday afternoon. He was out riding with a party of lads about his own age. They were cantering along a bush road, Thompson being in the lead, and, as he was looking back at his companions, his horse ran him against a tree. The poor little fellow sustained fearful injuries, and there can be little doubt that death was instantaneous. The body was brought into town on Sunday night and interred yesterday in the local cemetery, a large number of people following the remains to the grave. The Rev. E. Meeres officiated. General sympathy is felt for the family in their affliction.
