and 10 months.
We regret to hear of the death of Mr. YOXALL, who for some time was the
proprietor of YOXALL’s, a well known hotel at Lesseyton Drift, near Queenstown. 
He was a sufferer from diabetes and died on Friday last.  He was buried at
Queenstown on Saturday, the sermon being conducted by the Rev. J.P. RITCHIE.
We also have to record the melancholy news of the death of Mr. WHITE, late of
Cathcart.  It is only a few weeks ago since Mr. WHITE was married, and a portion
of his honeymoon was spent at Queenstown.  We offer our sincere sympathy to the
young and bereaved widow.
Friday, May 22, 1896
(note:  oh my goodness!  Sorry, couldn’t resist. :-D)
Girls, marry smokers.
An East London paper very considerately offers the following piece of gratuitous
advice for the fair sex:-
“Don’t marry husbands that don’t smoke, as they are nasty.  They lift the lids
and peep into pots, and pans, and things.  Husbands that smoke when scolded say
nothing, but smoke their pipes.”
