Mr. Robert Hunter Landale, owner of Mundiwa Station, Deniliquin, N.S.W., and Magenta, Balranald, N.S.W., died last month, at the early age of 52 years. He was born in Deniliquin, educated in England, and in 1889 came back to Australia, the following year taking over the management of Mundiwa for his father, the late Mr. Robert Landale. This he continued to do till the latter's death in 1903, when the estate was left to him and his youngest brother, Cyril. Subsequently Mr. R. H. Landale bought his brother out, and became the sole owner.

Mundiwa was originally a part of Deniliquin Station, one of the earliest runs to be taken up in that part of the State. It was purchased by the late James Tyson from the Royal Bank in the 50's, and in 1861 Mr. Tyson sold it to the late Mr. Robert Landale, in whose family it has been ever since.

The subject of this notice was prominently identified with local public bodies, and had been president of the Southern Riverina Picnic Turf Club and the Southern Riverina Pastoralists' Association, and was also a director of Dalgety and Co. Limited.

He leaves a widow and family of two sons and one daughter.
