Throughout the district sincere re- ' gret will be felt at the death of Mr Hugh P. Mills, which took place on Sunday. The deceased gentleman had been ill for some time, and his death was not unexpected. He was, up to a few years ago, a prominent footballer, having represented Taranaki for several years, in addition to which he was a member of the New Zealand team on two occasions. He played for Tukapa Club and Kaitaki, and was a true sportsman, who loved the game for its own sake, and was always fair and honourable, both on and off the field. As an exponent of the wing > forward game he was in his day one of the best men in New Zealand. He was a remarkably dashing player. Mr , Millß was a farmer by occupation, and . at the time of his death was only 32 years of age. His brothers include Mr '. Fred Mills, of Hawera ; Mr F. M. Mill? , (the well-known sporting man)', and » Mr W. Mills. To these and his other ; relatives we tender our sympathy.
