BULLI AND WOONONA. The sad death of Mr. John P. Orvad, 31 years of age, took place on Wednesday night, after a lingering illness. The cause of death was consumption. Deceased was very popular in the district, and will be greatly missed as a musician, being always anxious to help along any local function. At the outbreak of the war in South Africa he offered himself for active service, and proceeded to the war with the Bushmens' Contingent. Deceased leaves a wife and one child, for whom the greatest sympathy is expressed on all sides. The funeral took place on Friday afternoon, the interment, being in the Corrimal cemetery. Father Dunne officiated at the grave. The corpse was encased in a beautiful polished cedar casket, silver-mounted. Osborne and Son carried out the funeral arrangements.
