OBITUARY. 
MISS ELVA FULLERTON. 
It is with the utmost regret that we have to report the sad passing of Miss Elva Fullerton, at her home, Mitchell vale, near Mt Molloy, about 8 p.m. on Thursday, May 31. Miss Elva had been an invalid for nearly two years as the result it is believed, of an accident in the sports field. Nevertheless, her passing came as a shock to the whole district where she will always be remembered as a bright and happy girl, ready to join in any sport. She reached her 21st birthday in November of last year. Her parents. Mr. and Mrs. de Renzie Fullerton, and her brothers and sister are the recipients of the heartfelt sympathy of a very large circle of friends. The funeral took place on Friday, at Mitchell vale, where there is a family cemetery.

OBITUARY.News of the death of Mr. Leslie P. Fullerton which occurred in Cairns on September 24 was received with deepest sympathy by his many friends of Mt. Molloy district. Leslie, who was born here 32 years ago, was the youngest son of the late Mr. and Mrs. de Dresie Fullerton, of Mitchell Vale, one of Mt. Molloy's oldest and most respected families. He received his early education-at the Mt. Molloy State school, and later went to Thorn- burgh College, Charters Towers. He was a genuine friend-quiet and unassuming and respected by all who knew him. He served for five and a half years with the R.A.A.F. in the late war, and like many of his brave comrades, his nerves were affected. He is survived by his  widow, of Cairns, his mother, one sister (Edna) Mrs. G. Davies, of Mossman, and one brother, Drensey, of Mt. Molloy.
