He took a great interest in the welfare of the district. He was chairman of the Sheldon Park Trus-' tees, Belfast Cemetery Trustees, Belfast Town Hall Committee, and for a considerable time chairman of Belfast School Committee. He. was

superintendent of the Presbyterian Sunday School for about 25 years, and up to the time of his death. He ;was greatly respected by the residents and the outside public. During the time of the boiling-down 'days he was foreman of the Provision and Produce Company's boiling down works at Belfast.

MR& ISABELLA FLETT. The death took place at Lyttelton ; on Tuesday last of one of the oldest I residents of the port, Mrs Isabella : Gaudie Flett. The late Mrs Flett was born in the Orkney Islands in 1837, and arrived in Lyttelton in 1863 in the ship Tiptree. She had resided in the port ever since, with the exception of a short sojourn in her native country in company with her husband some years ago. On the occasion of that visit Mr Flett ! lost his life by falling over a cliff. For many years the late Mr Flett carried on a shipwright's business i in conjunction with Mr Peter Louttit, and they had a slip in the vicinity of the Lyttelton-Gasworks, which was later shifted to a site in the neighr bourhood of the New Zealand Ships' ping Company's wool store. Mrs Flett took a very keen interest in St. John's Presbyterian Church, of which she was an active member. The deceased lady leaves no relatives, in New Zealand, but it is understood that there are a few relatives surviving at t. Home. The funeral, which took place at the Public Cemetery this afternoon, was largely attended. The Rev.,J. J. Bates officiated at the graveside.
