Death of Mr. MELASS
A few issues back we alluded to the accident to Mr A. MELASS at Grahamstown. A
wire was received here on Thursday that Mr MELASS had succumbed to his injuries.
At first he rallied, but the shock to the system was too great, and although
every care and attention that kind friends and the nursing staff at the Hospital
could do, it was without avail.
Mr . MELASS has a brother at Johannesburg, but we have not heard of his being
present at Grahamstown.
Mr. M. ARMSTRONG left for Grahamstown, on Thursday just prior to the news of the
death end being received.

Mr. MELASS had endeared himself to a large circle of friends in Queenstown
during his long residence and will be much missed...
