The death has occurred of Mr. Peter Alexander Sutherland, of Thologolong, in his 70th year. With his cousin, Mr. J. Sutherland, he purchased his Thologolong property in 1885, and they founded there the well-known Polled Angus cattle stud, which has been carried on ever since. Mr. Sutherland was a well-known sheep and cattle judge at the Sydney and Melbourne and country shows. Since 1866 [sic] he was a member of the Towong Shire Council, of which he was president on nine or ten occasions. He was also president of the Albury Show Society for two years.
