An inmate of the Adelaide Lunatic Asylum named Louis N. Brennan has been identified as W. G. Geddos, who was reported as having been drowned, and on whose account the Australian Mutual Provident Society paid L 2.500. Geddes subsequently came to New Zealand, and lived in Dunedin and Invercargill, cutting a considerable dash in society. He was in the Survey Department when the 10 per cent, reduction was made, and had two miniature photographs taken of himself headed " before " and " after," to illustrate the change made in his facial expression by the loss of his screw. Two of the photographs lying in the 'Southland News' Office have been sent to Australia, aud may assist to his complete identification. [He has been completely identified by his relatives.—Ed. E.S.]
