The death occurred on Wednesday in a private hospital in Orange, of Mr. Hugh Hannelly, of Gowan Green, six miles from Stuart Town. Deceased, who was a native of that district, a single man, and 39 years of age, some little time back was operated on for a cyst in the neck. The operation was successful, and he returned home. Later the wound began to give him trouble, and it was discovered that he was suffering from tetanus, a rare disease. He was brought to Orange where he died as stated. His mother was in attendance during his illness. Deceased is a nephew of Mr. Hubert Hannelly of Store Creek. Deceased was a man of good standing in the community, and a particularly sad feature of his death is that he was engaged to be married to a young lady of Mosman next month. The remains were conveyed to Stuart Town for interment yesterday.
