Mack, Albert (?–1897)

Mr. Albert Mack, of Beni, grazier, died suddenly on the 8th inst; from heart disease. Deceased was in Dubbo the day before his death, apparently in good health. The deceased was the youngest of a family well known in pastoral circles both in New South Wales and Victoria. While a resident of the Narandera district N.S.W., he was an active and staunch member of the Pastoralists' Union at a time of difficulty and danger, and, by his tact and geniality, was a great support to that body. At the same time he was a liberal and popular employer. As a citizen he was an acquisition to his district, taking an active and intelligent part in promoting its welfare in all matters of public import, sport, or social enjoyment. As a "mate" his company was sought by all with whom he came in contact, and his ever-ready joke and laugh were always an assurance of a pleasant gathering. The Dubbo and district associations have lost an important supporter, and many people a cheery friend.
