We regret to record the fact that Lieut. John Chute Ellis, Royal Horse Artillery, of Burrabogie Station, N.S.W., the representative of a pioneer South Australian family, died of wounds in France on 6th June. He was the third son of Mr. T. C. Ellis, of Benara, Mt. Gambier, South Australia, where he was born in 1886; was educated at Christ's College, Christchurch, New Zealand, and at the Dunedin (New Zealand) University, and he finally went to the London Hospital, where he obtained the M.R.C.S. and L.R.C.P. degrees. Prior to leaving for the war he managed Burrabogie Station, Hay, N.S.W., for himself and his brothers, T. C. Junior and W. N. C. Ellis, with whom he was in partnership in Burrabogie, Eremeran, and Tipperary Stations, New South Wales.
