Smith, Wallace Arabian (1859–1891)

Mr. Wallace Arabian Smith, of Gamboola Station, Molong, youngest son of the Hon. John Smith, M.L.C., of Lanarth, Bathurst, succumbed to the prevailing epidemic, influenza, early this morning. He was 32 years of age, and has left a widow (who is dangerously ill with influenza) and family to mourn their loss. His death will be severely felt in the Molong district, where he was most popular. He was always to the fore in assisting charitable and other objects for the benefit of the town, and he took an active port in the management of the Molong Pastoral and Agricultural Society. He was also president of the Molong Football Club, and amongst its members he was very popular. His remains will be removed to-night for Bathurst, where they will be interred in the family vault.
