Death of Mr Wallace Salter. A well known and popular personality in the west for about half a century passed away in a private hospital in Dubbo on Tuesday afternoon— Mr. Wallace Alfred Salter, who was in his sixtieth year. Mr. Salter was born at Corowa, but as a boy came to Dubbo with his parents, and the family home was at Warrie Flat. That family has now become a very numerous one in this district, and all are shining examples of the success that lies within the reach of all who apply themselves with industry to the work in which they may be engaged in this land of opportunity. The deceased was twice married, his second wife surviving him. There is an excellent family of three sons and four daughters, all of whom are helping the Dubbo district to achieve its destiny. Mr. Salter was a man of many parts, in common par-lance, he could turn his hand to almost anything, and do it well. He was noted for his tireless industry, and it might be said of him, that, though he had been two months in the hospital, after a serious operation, he died in harness, for he worked right up to the time he was compelled by wracking pain to seek medical advice. His death is a loss to the district, and it deeply deplored by his largo circle of relations and hosts of close friends. He was just such a man as won friendships wherever he was. His cheerfulness was proverbial. He was noted for his happy disposition. Though he liked company, he preferred to enjoy it at his home, where every happiness reigned, and where hospitality was dispensed on a lavish scale. He was a man who had made good comparatively early in life, notwithstanding that he had to contend against more opposing natural conditions than have to be confronted by the men on the land at present. And having made good, he came to Dubbo to live and take a rest, but the call of his rural surroundings at Mountain View, where he lived and worked for some years, was irresistible. The town or city life had no allurements for him. Were there many more of his type there would be no wail heard about the drift to the city and the abandonment of production. The song of the birds, the purling of the brooks, the lowing of the cattle, and the soughing of the wind in the arcadias were the sweetest music to his soul, and the most pleasing sights were the productions of his fields, the resplendent glories of a bounteous spring. Proud of the results of his labor on his farm when the seasons were auspicious, nothing was so lovely to him as his cultivated fields, where large increase had blessed the fruitful plain, and he with joy beheld the swelling grain, whose heavy ears, to-wards the earth reclined, waved and trembled in the whisking wind. The funeral was one of the largest witnessed in Dubbo for a long time. Almost everyone in Eumungerie came to Dubbo to show their sympathy with the bereaved one, and to pay a tribute to the character of a very worthy man. Mr. J. R. Tighe had charge of the arrangements, and before the hearse marched a number of his brethren of the Lodge Talbragar (I.O.O.F.). The service at the graveside and at Holy Trinity, were conducted by the Rector, Rev. C. W. Leavers, and Brother H. Howard read the service of the Order to which the deceased belonged.
