We regret to record that a double bereavement of an unusually sad nature has been sustained by Mr and Mrs Allen Wilkinson, junr., of Mt. Cole, Raglan. On Monday their infant daughter, Rita Violet, aged three years, died from acute laryngitis, croup, and heartfailure, after an illness of only a week's dura tion. Mr Wilkinson was absent at Deniliquin, New South Wales, and although he motored back to Raglan on hearing of his daughter's condition, did not reach his home until after the child had expired. Two other children of Mr and Mrs Wilkinson's, who were also seriously ill, were brought to Beaufort. Despite careful attention, one of them, Eva Myrtle Wilkinson, aged 18 months, passed away on Tuesday night, after three days' illness ; the cause of death being acute laryngitis, broncho pneu monia, and heart failure. Great sym pathy is felt for the bereaved parents,
whose trouble is intensified by the fact that only five weeks previously another of their children succumbed to croup. The remains of the two deceased chil dren were interred side by side in the one grave at the Beaufort cemetery on Wednesday, the funeral being largely attended. The coffins, which were cov ered with an unusually large number of floral tributes of sympathy, were borne to the grave by Messrs John Pitcher, W. Hutton, Geo. Waldron, and J. Lancey. The Presbyterian burial service was read by the Rev. A. J. Stewart. Mr A. H. Sands, undertaker, Beaufort, carried out the mortuary arrangements.
