Successful Traders. —The wills of two West-end tradesmen have just been proved* The personal estate of IVXr Mantle (Stagg and Mantle, Leicester square) was valued at L 250,080, and that of Mr Brosdwood, the pianoforte maker, at L 424,000. Pronounced His Own Doom.—A sad fulfilment of a jocular remark happened to Mr A. F. B. Kyngdon, who was accidentally drowned by being swept from his horse in the Waitara river on Monday week last. Deceased, who was an old Taranaki settler, being warned of the danger of the crossing the river when it was high, said, “ He might at some time come to grief in crossing the river and on another occasion told a friend that “ he had, seen Dr Gibbes and asked him if he was busy, as he would have to hold an inquest on him some day.” That day came within a week. —Rangitekei Advocate.
