The death occurred on November 12, at her residence, George-street, Moonta, of Mrs. Beaglehole, wife of Mr. John Beaglehole. Mrs. Beaglehole, who was 68 years of age, was born at Mount Barker, but went to Moonta when quite a girl. As a young woman she was for many years a compositor in the local printing office.
