      JOHN RIGGS.
      Word was received in town yesterday
      from Wallangarra of the death of Mr.
      John Riggs, which took place that
      morning after a few days' illness. De
      ceased, who was 70 years of age, had
      only been ailing since Sunday last, and
      his death, which was due to heart
      failure, came as a great shock to his
      relatives. The late Mr. Riggs was a
      native of Mitchell Town, County Cork  
      and had been a resident of this distict  
      for the past 24 years. Deceased, who
      was highly respected, is survived by  
      his widow, two daughters, and three
      sons, for whom sympathy will be ex
      pressed in their bereavement. The  
      funeral will take place this nflernoon,
      and will move from the Roman
      Catholic Church at 2.30 o'clock.
